This is an Interesting article. A guy fumbles three times and you write about him. Certainly the punt return was nice but I am sure anyone could have done it with that blocking.

Falslev had a full ride at USU coming out of high school but thought he was better than the home town team. Boy did he get it wrong. If he would have gone to USU he would have had one win over Utah in his college career.

Yes JD, lineman need to block and receivers need to catch but QB’s need to put the ball in the same zip code as the receivers.

Big J, so bitter and sad on so many fronts.

A normally sure-handed return man who suddenly fumbles, three times in one game. That's interesting. In the same game, he has a good return AND he takes one to the house. That's newsworthy. I'm pretty sure usu coaches and players have taken note, and will take him more seriously than you are.

While having a win against Utah would be important (it IS getting hard for me to remember, it's been that long), it is not the pinnacle of any team's season, except maybe Utah's. I'm sure, again, that usu has moved on, and will measure this team's success by greater accomplishments. You should too.

Cont.

You may have failed to notice that, this game, linemen DID block, and receivers DID hang on to the ball, it WAS in the same zip code. USU is not MTSU, it will be interesting to see how the passing does this week. You may want to wait just a few days to be smug though. By late Friday night, you may well be celebrating in your self-righteousness. But you may also find yourself picking the shreds of your bitter nasty words from between your teeth.

Maybe Hill should be hitting 9-irons to the receivers. Perhaps all that time he and Falslev spent on the golf course could have been better used on practicing basic throwing and catching.

I like how Falslev owns it. He had a bad game and he knows it. Dude's awesome. Falslev, Van Noy, and J. Williams. Those guys kick butt. Beck really stepping up too! All these guys, right place, right time.

Big J:

Falslev chose BYU not because "he was better than the home town team." He chose BYU because it is more than just football. BYU is BYU, and it will always attrack the Falslev types.

Nothing against USU.
