I'm more interested in Hill improving his passing ability. We all know he
can run but he needs to improve his passing ability to be a complete dual threat
q/b against the Utes. With Spencer Hadley out, my optimism is a bit deflated
although I hope the back ups will step up. Here's hoping our seniors avoid
going 0-4. We must not give Chris B and his friends more reason to endlessly
mock and bashed on us.Go Cougars! Good luck Utes after this
We in San Diego loved having Eldon Fortie serve in the San Diego Temple
Presidency up until a couple of years ago. I knew nothing about his storied BYU
football career. I only knew him as a humble and spiritual member of our Temple
I must be that old because I saw Mr. Forte come off the bench to beat Wyoming in
'62. I thought he was a gutsy player and lament that there is no film of
that second touchdown at the end of the game to replay.I think there
should be more stories of the older players of all BYU teams to see what they
have accomplished in their "after sports" lives. I
don't want to relive the past, but it would be nice to see how they have
fared and if sports taught them anything.
Yes, it is a thrill coming to realize the man we had been serving with in the
temple in San Diego is "that" President Fortie. I had no idea until
today that they were one and the same. We love that humble man!
He can watch the game on tv. Senior missionaries are allowed to have visitors,
phone there friends and family and do many things yong missionaries can't.
"We are all Cougars!"Yes sir. Even those of us wannabes who
never played a single down feel the same way about our players. I hate it when
some of our fanbase loses sight of that sentiment and ridicules, mocks, and boos
the performance of college kids when they are trying their best, but come up
short. I wish we would all encourage as much as we congratulate, because after
all, "We are all Cougars!"Fine example Bro. Fortie!
Chris B.? Thoughts?
Samoan,Do we know the lowest completion percentage in a season for a
byu QB?I would say he as just as good of a chance at breaking that
new low record wouldn't you, at 33%?
Chris B.?You never disappoint. I don't know why you get on BYU
articles in the first place. I've actually wondered if you work for DN and
that's why you're usually the first to insult BYU, either that or you
check for BYU articles every 5 minutes. But in response I already
know Hill needs work on his passing game, it's his run game that's in
question here. It actually really bothers me that he can't pass so you
trying to get under my skin by insulting his pass game is pointless...in fact
every Y fan knows it too. But I know I know BYU doesn't belong to an elite
program blah blah blah.
Samoan,"But I know I know BYU doesn't belong to an
elite"Some of you guys are starting to accept reality. And that
is good. byu will continue to be a fun regional program that competes with USU
for the second best program in the state. Although neither of
those programs has proven in the last couple decades they can be a top 5
Both Christopher and Chris B's, I don't know if
you're the same person or not but reality set into me a long time ago...I
love my Cougs but you're right, a top 5 ranking will be extremely difficult
but not impossible. But here's some reality for you too that you need to
accept. I commend the U for being in this conference but reality is they
ain't gonna be smelling roses for a LONG time let alone whiffing the
national championship. Just like how you all accuse us Y fans of being
delusional so are many Ute fans. There's Ute fans that I'm working
with right now that think they have a shot at the Rose Bowl this year...now
that's reality too my friend.
It's OK everyone. Chris B. is just trying to post smack on as many BYU
articles as he can, because he knows that after Saturday his trolling days are
over. He said that if (when) BYU wins, he will never post again. Mark it down.
