BYU football! Why would you play for anybody else! Go BYU!!!
One of the biggest reasons to play for BYU is the unrelentingly loyal fans --
like Chris B.
A man after my own heart. If I had been talented enough to play college football
at the Division I level, BYU would have been my only choice. But, alas, my fate
only has allowed me to be a vocal and loyal (and admittedly sometimes annoying)
fan. I look forward to seeing Trey play. May he carry one the legacy that his
father left. Go Cougars!
His dad sure was fast.
What about getting the leading receiver and rusher to come to BYU?
Ah James Dye. Most notable in my memory for his contributions to Utah State as a
RB/WR in 1996 alongside Profail Grier.Then he transferred to BYU to
return kicks. USU missed him. With the coaching changes at the time who can
Correction to Mr. Dye:Cougar Stadium sells out when Utah comes to
town and for Stadium of Fire. Not 65,000 each game. The rest of the
games do not sell out. Look it up.
Two star rated; one offer. The title says it all.
I did look it up, KamUte. BYU averages 96% capacity, and has higher attendance
than all but two Pac-12 schools. I think we can forgive Trey's rounding
from 61.5k to the more-typical 65k. It's been there before, and it'll
be there again.
@KamUte:Why do you care?
He signed with and plans on playing for the school he always wanted ind intended
to. He also is standing by his comitment. Good for him on both points!
They are closer to a sell out than RES. LOL
He's as quick as "a flea on a hot stove"...He will be a great
player with his quickness and speed.
Again, welcome aboard Trey. Your dad was awsome but I hope you will be better
than your dad in all positions which I think he would agreed. Can you play DB as
well which I think it would be a plus? Whenever you come, 2014 or 2016 Go Dye
and Go Cougars!
I remember his dad well. What a great player! I also remember the signs in the
stands to the opposing team, "You punt, you Dye!"
@KamUte Really??? You want to talk about sell outs? BYU still puts more people
in the stands when it doesn't sell out than the 45K RES holds. I
wasn't really shocked at the Ute bandwagon fans this year when the last
game of the year against your "rival" Colorado, there were plenty of red
seats. BYU had more fans against Idaho State during a downpour, than your game
against Colorado. As the Utes continue to struggle in the PAC10+2, you will see
more and more red seats at games.
Happy for this young man and the opportunity he's getting.Best of
luck and finish your degree.
Seeing players like this who want to come here and who commit as soon as
they're offered is one of a hundred things I love about BYU, and what keeps
me a rabid BYU sports fan. Great young man, from a family who loves
and appreciated what BYU did for them, and has built that love into their son.
Quoting from an earlier article: “I was starting to hear a lot from Utah,
Utah State, Texas Tech and some other schools, but I didn’t grow up
dreaming of playing for any of those schools — I grew up dreaming about
playing for BYU, so why wait around to see what offers I could get?” Looking forward to cheering you on, Trey
I remember Dye returning a punt vs Baylor when he still an Aggie for a touchdown
to help the Ags beat the Bears at home. Good to see his boy will be playing in
the state anyway.
I love this young man already. Hope he excels in the game of football at BYU
but also that his life is blessed with the full measure of what God has in store
Welcome to the family Trey. Go Cougs!
RE: Who am I sir, It was clear that he was firm in his commitment
and therefore, received few offers. These "star" ratings are subjective
assessments from the so called experts based on the kind of attention they get
from the "Power" conferences. If he wouldn't have committed to BYU
and received offers from Texas and others his stars would have followed.
Dye! Dye! Dye!
Who am I sir?Cottonwood Heights, UTWhen you commit early most
rating services lose interest. How many stars did Eric Weddell, Jake Heaps or
Dennis Pitta have?
It's easy for byu to be your only choice when they're the only
football team to offer you a scholarship..
He probably will be a big improvement over what we saw on the field this pas
Cougarists,Rating services lose interest?LOL! Wrong!
Rating services are in the businesses of rating players. They don't simply
stop doing their job because a kid verbally commits. You
couldn't be more wrong. And what do the stars of Weddle, Heaps,
or Pitta have to do with anything you are saying?Are you saying the
all commit extremely early and therefore their stars were lower than they
oterhwise would have been? Wasn't heaps a 5 star, so not sure what point
you are trying to make.If you are trying to suggest stars don't
matter, let me reply with another LOl!
Chris, I think Cougarista abbreviated his/her thought, which you then of course
pounced on.When a young man commits to a program, and makes his
intentions firmly known, most other programs stop showing interest in that young
man. When said young man has no scholarship offers from any major conference
schools (because he has already committed to the school of his choice), ratings
by rating services begin to drop, or never climb to begin with. It leaves an
anomaly, because the young man may or may not be a better player than the
services rate him, due to lack of scholarship offers.Weddle, Pitta,
and Hoffman are all examples of players who played well above their ratings.
Heaps is an example of a player who never lived up to his ratings.Does that help?
listening to you typical BYU fans and Utah fans argue...every day...same old
stuff...its no wonder high profile HS kids in Utah would rather play at
Stanford, Wisconsin, UCLA, etc. you guys that argue every day need
to get a life.
CB,How did your stars do this year?? Stars do not matter if they play for
a terrible program.
Championship or bust!
I have been fortunate enough to watch Trey grow up. I am so impressed with who
he has become and wish him all success in life and on the field. I am happy he
is actually coming back to Utah so we can go cheer him on.
I loved Trey when he lived in Cedar Hills and played youth football with my son.
Parents are awesome people and he is going to be a great addition to the BYU
program. BYU needs kids like him.
Sounds like a wonderful young man. Good speed and articulation. But, I hope he
decides to go on a mission first, and I hope it's soon as it will help him
for the rest of his life, starting in football when he gets home from the
mission field!! Go Cougs! (That's what my wife would say if she was here!)
It's great to see a young man get a shot at his dream and for BYU to get a
quality player and person. Good luck Trey!
