Congrats to all, especially Xavier! He is a beast and has another year to go before the pro's... Best of luck Xav, love watching you play!

Sure didn't help his draft stock by coming back. Previously he was almost a sure first rounder in my experts draft boards.

Can't find Van Noy in a single first round prediction now.

"But Pac-10 schedule..."
"But Pac-10 window sticker..."

Sigh.

I'm a Utah fan that believes Kyle was the best linebacker in the country.

byu fan posing as Pac 12 fan,

Every expert in the country disagrees with you. But what do they know?

@Chris B,

Did you really go out there and research first round predictions? Someone has lots of time on their hands...

I must agree with Chris B, Van Noy coming back hurt his draft stock. I am a hard core BYU fan and have something of a "man crush" (for lack of a better term) on Van Noy, but I won't argue with facts. I won't say Van Noy necessarily made the wrong decision for himself though. He did find his wife, and I must say she is quite a catch. I think he could still have a good NFL career though, despite not being drafted as high as he would have been. Congrats to all with ties to the great state of Utah who made All American lists at one level or another (even being an honorable mention is quite an accomplishment). Good luck to them all in their pursuit to make it at the next level. And as always, Go Cougars!

Chris, you don't understand, and i expect that you never will.

Kyle plays for a program that values other things more than winning or losing. It may be a surprise to you that Kyle values other things more than position in the draft.

I guess you also don't understand why BYU fans value a program, a coach and players whose values are foreign to you, but we do. We value them more than a big name conference, or the accolades that come (but not necessarily) from playing in such a conference.

But we do.

20-13. Nothing moral about it.

No, I assure you, Utah's win over BYU was an actual victory, not a moral one.

I'm a KVN fan and yet I feel that he had too many missed tackles this year to go in the first round. Maybe it's the increased focus from opposing teams or he's just generally in the spotlight more this year, but I'm not surprised with a 3rd team nod instead of 1st.

Do you enjoy hating so much?

Kyle Van Noy was focus more of opponents this year, and he did seem at times to be coasting on his laurels on top of that...he will no doubt be humbled and work harder for whoever he ends up playing NFL with...Detroit with Ziggy would be good. He is iconic, heroic for his perseverance and character, representing LDS Church so very well. Congratulations to all those who were great at this level, not all will succeed at the next, be interesting to see who is.

Y Grad,

You act like its an either or thing. It's not.

Don't use the byu "values" as some sort of excuse for what happens on the field.

People can have success on the field AND be good people, standing for things, valuing things more than football.

Funny you mention that byu has values that are more important than a big name conference. But that's exactly my point.

The University of Utah(and many others) have just as strong and correct values as byu and yet try to be as successful on the field as possible.

Why act like you can't be a university full of value AND a top notch football program?

@Chris B
Interesting since the first 3 mock drafts I saw all had him projected in the first round. Your experts must be the same ones that predicted Utah in the Rose bowl.

I just don't get why some people find joy in catching someone else (a little bit) down on their performance or luck. It says something pathetic about us when you see a student athlete who has overcome great personal challenges to be where he is and the rest of us want to say he is something less than he is. Say what you will, but KVN is one of the best linebackers in the entire USA. And a great kid to boot. Who are we to say anything negative about that? My hat is off to all these student athletes, regardless of what jersey they wear.

I just get tired of all the carping little comments. Let's grow up, people.

How sweet. I am a faithful member of the same church you attend and I have to tell you...posts like this one make me laugh and they make me angry. You people (byu fans) do a lot of talking before games. I've read your posts, Y Grad / Y Dad, and they are as vile, caustic, and disrespectful as any. When the game is over and byu players and fans walk away with their tails between their legs and heads hanging down, you pull out the "values" card.

Values should be lived daily 100% of the time not something you wrap around yourself when you want to feel better.

Congratulations to these fine players.

Go Utes!

Everyone knows the best team won every bit of that game except scores and scores don't count as much.
