With Adam Hogan having a quad contusion I think the team has just about covered all the possible scenarios. Now no team out there will have the slightest possible idea who they will be facing in the secondary. It's almost as good as changing jerseys among the corners. Are any of them really hurt? Are they all hurt? If you play the deep ball do they surprise you and blitz off the corner (on crutches?) or do you target the corners and find out they really all got better and fooled everyone? Perhaps this is one of the greatest coverups ever pulled on an offense. They'll all just have to wait and see.
As for the Y fans...I suggest we all pray because we are a religious school and it's all the fan base can really do about it anyway.

What is going on with the Corner Back position?... We weren't well recruited in the position to start with and we now 4 injuries (2 season ending)??? And we haven't even played a snap yet...

I was reading that the BYU coaches were now going to try out some from the Rugby team for the position?... C'mon... Who's the Defensive Secondary coach??? Put him on loan to Utah for awhile and if we can't do that, give him something else to do during practice, just keep him away from the players...

Football has got to be the most confused sport in the world. It is named after a ball that has something to do with a foot, but when any foot-to-ball related, game time activity takes place the performance is often held in derision or forgotten all together. Even the comments already found on this article display sports amnesia. Come on! Give the kicker some love or hate. The article was about the kickers and about football. Are we supposed to be comforted by 2 of 3 from 43?

To be fair, even the writer of the article can't seem to keep the article focused as shown with additional notes about corners, LB's and QB's. So go on, talk about those other guys of that game that you want nothing to do with its name.

Put Mat Carlino at secondary - oops, Dave Rose will laugh and say, don't think about it.

2 of 3 with no pressure? Need to do better than that.

Thunk; the sound a football makes when it hits the goal post.

Two attempts to tie a game and he couldn't do it?

Another injured secondary?

Sept 26th will be like shooting fish in a barrel.

For those with short memories, Justin S. was hitting 50 yard field goals when he first came to BYU, but last year was a disaster. I understand that Justin had a back injury last year, so how is that going? I am glad there is back up kickers this year, because BYU sure could have used them last year. If Justin can get back to where he was in the beginning, he will end up in the NFL for sure, but if not, he can get a job like the rest of us.

Sept 26? Isn't that a week off for the Cougars? I think they are playing a FBS team that week. GO COUGARS!

@Scott Farcus
Correct me if I am wrong but I believe from past posts that you are an ardent University of Utah Fan.
So I have a question for you.
Given that you think Sept 26th will be like shooting fish in a barrell.
Can you tell me what is going on, where and why it will be like shooting fish in a barrell?
Because I don't see anything on Utah's schedule that even comes close to looking like such a contest.
But if you need to shoot fish in a barrell 5 days after the BYU-Utah game to feel good about something I guess that's a persosnal issue.
Just don't let the ASPCA catch wind of it. They frown on that sort of thing.

Chris B "As a ute fan, this is music to our ears!"

I'm pretty sure that if I had said this the censorship squad would have rejected my post (probably will now).

But still chis, I think you are more of a BYU hater than you are a utah fan.

It's simple really! The game will play out as either A) Utah dominating like the 04', 08', or 11' teams have or B) BYU will shoot themselves in the foot and the Utes will win the game. Either way it's like shooting fish in a barrel according to recent trends.

@Chris B.
I can see how a constant fan of everything BYU would get excited about Jason Munns traveling with the team. We all know and love the efforts that Jason has put into the program and he deserves to travel with the team. But the Utah Game will be a home game and you can come down and see him in mop up duty in the third quarter if you like.

If however your comment about music to your ears was because you relish the injury of a competitor...

You are not a Ute fan. All true Utes would denounce such a comment.

Chris...did you really need to waste your first 4 words stating you are a "Ute Fan"?

Seems the monitor in the DNews went to sleep, they haven't posted my last comment to you yet.

I am a graduate of the UofU and reading a calendar is one of my many talents. With that in mind I urge you to do the same.

I absolutely guarantee that you and every one who clicked like on your comment will not see anything like shooting fish in a barrell on Sept. 26th.

If you don't understand that, look at the calendar again, very, very closely.

More evidence regarding U of U students and reading for content... Who knows, with all the love Utah gets from the PAC whatever, they may next be relegated to playing Thursday night games.
