Oh, we know who Conrad Dobler is. One of the dirtiest players in the history of
the NFL. We do NOT need, nor should want, his type of play on the BYU team. We
don't need that type of play nor "battitude". Play TO the whistle.
Then get back in the huddle for the next play. If BYU is running a "hurry
up" offense there is no time to waste. Corral that attitude and just play
football. Get a "reputation" with the referees and cost the team big
time with devastating penalties. Let's play hard, but let's play
smart! What do you say coaches?
I love the kid's battitude. BYU needs a few more Conrad Doblers on the
team. Conrad who? Google him.
@BigCougFanThe state? Think bigger. BYU is 7 plays (20-0) from
being the best team in the nation.
@idablu and Solution,I'm with you 100% on playing hard and with
discipline! I hate seeing cocky attitudes after any player makes a big play.
By that I mean excessive and taunting antics like in your face pounding your
chest or flexing your muscles over an opponent when he is down and then walk
away without helping him up. Celebrating after a successful play in fine but it
must be disciplined and not be over done and disrespectful to the other team.
Coaches should always encourage playing hard and smart but not behavior that
attracts unnecessary penalties that's often detrimental to the team's
success.Go Cougars! Beat the Broncos! And don't underestimate
the new quarterback!
Love seeing article about the O-Line... Terrible is the ignorance of many fans
as to O-Line importance in winning the game, Braydon K IS AN O-LINE ROCKSTAR!
Agree with The Solution.I was wondering if I was the only one
bothered by this article.My philosophy is play your heart out from
the snap to the whistle--no "extracurricular" activity.Otherwise
you just end up hurting your team, as he has done.Whatever happened
to "play with discipline?" It sure wasn't evident last game...Cheap shots and continued play after the play has been blown dead is
BUSH LEAGUE, and I am very disappointed in any BYU coach who condones it.Play like a man! Go hard and physical until the whistle is blown, then
help your opponent off the turf.
Playing to the whistle is just an option? Sounds like a recipe for plenty of
BTW- I'm glad Kearsley is making such a strong first impression. From a
sole-football standpoint, he'll likely be irrelevant to the team if he
chooses to serve a mission.
‘crap yeah’? Yep. Must be a BYU coach! That was the best part of the
article for me!
@ "we already won you", "we are in a bcs confrence", "we are
more awsome".I love it! Another proud Utah grad.
The articles comments on how great Kearsley is are way premature. He has been
making lots of mistakes and has a long way to go before anyone starts talking
about how good he is. I am disappointed that TuJ is encouraging his pubescent
behavior of not controlling himself after plays. He focuses more on the
extra-curricular than the curricular in most games.Prove to me that
you can defend our QB when it counts and then we'll talk about how good of
a football player you are. I don't care how good you are at brawling.
I have loved watching Kearsley, he is definitely playing with an attitude that I
think has been lacking on the line and its great to see. We had a glimpse of
that last year with Famika Anae when he finally got a chance and its just really
unfortunate he had to give up the game. Those two on the same line with Ryker
would be awesome!
Well if Utah was going to go to anything but the Dallas Bowl maybe they would
play again this year.
@Cletus from Coalville:BYU is the "University of Utah".
The team that looses on the scoreboard is almost always better. Just look at
this year, we had alsmost as many tackles, more bluzones and we know we won in
are hearts so we are the best team.scores rarely proofs who is the real
Didn't know Mathews got a finger on it--nice to see him contributing on
special teams. Nice to see some of the younger players stepping up, the future
is bright in Cougartown. Go Cougs!
Big props to Brayden. O-line (particularly center) is probably one of the
toughest positions for a true freshman to learn and to make an impact in his
first year -- including the physical, mental, emotional and leadership demands.
It will be interesting to watch him and this offensive line mature over the next
couple of years....
BigCougFanlove your comment and agree with it. Now the fun
part watching all the Utah fan get upset over your comment.
I can't help but love watching the Cougars. They are by far the best team
in the state. It doesn't matter that Utah pulled at upset. Thanks to the
coaches and players for making this a memorable season.Go Cougars!
