Really CB?You are finally now ready to acknowledge that the (lowly)
USU Aggies of the (dismal) MWC is now above par with the (elitist) Utes of the
PAC 10+2 given that the USU picks in total were higher than the U? Spin the numbers any way you want and the U still does not finish first...Draft Pick & Avg. Pick...BYU: KVN (#40); Avg Pick = 40USU: MA (#110) & NL (#133); Avg Pick = 122Utah: KMcG (#116) & TR
(#233); Avg. Pick = 175Total Number of players Drafted or with Deals
(NOT Mini-Camps)...USU = 8 (MA, NL, JD, TL, DJT, AJP, TG-W, JDeM)Utah = 6 (KMcG, TR, KW, AD, TP, JM)BYU = 5 (KVN, CH, SH, DS, EM)Sounds about right.
1 byu player selected and 2 utes and 2 aggies.sounds about right.Go UTES!
Duckhunter, et. al; I had my crow and humble pie. Go UTES!
Congrats to KVN. I think he is going to have an excellent career with the
Congrats to all the in-state players drafted over the last couple of day. Good
to see KVN leading the way.
I will be following the Lions now that they started a BYU pipeline. These BYU
D-players will be a game changer. Congratulations KVN you are the bomb dot com!
Congratulations to KVN, I look forward to see you work hard at the next level!
Congrats also to Alexander, Lawson and McGill."In this
world nothing can be said to be certain, except death, taxes and desnews boards
devolving into ridiculous chest pounding."
I live in the far north and am somewhat of a Vikings and Packer fan. Never
really cared for Detroit, but that is going to change! Won't be too sad if
Detroit beats either team because it means another win for BYU! Detroit is
loading up on defense. Wow, this should be a better team this year. Cannot
wait to see Ansah, Van Noy, and Suh hunt quarterback! Man this will be fun.
Re: Buffs are better than youKVN proclaimed that the game against
Utah was his Super Bowl. KVN is 0-4 against Utah. You never saw a Utah fan
proclaim that Trevor Riley was the best prospect in the state. Again, a
statement made up by a BYU fan and reported as a fact. KVN is a
very good player. Enjoy the fact that he was drafted in the second round and
leave Utah out of it.
Eddie,The Utes have proven that they can consistantly beat byu, however, I
wouldn't say that "The u fans would much rather beat BYU than succeed
in their mighty conference.". I didn't come here to rag on Kyle or byu,
just to question those that proclaimed a victory over Utah. I'll accept
your comment and Jealous U's as valid responses. Again, good on Kyle and
luck to Justin. Kieth from the Utes has already been drafted and I expect Trevor
to get a call at any moment.
Wow Elmer Fudd, that was a classic example of typically flawed logic. Do you
really think that the utes are the measuring-stick by which all individual D1
athletes are ranked and judged? The athlete must be evaluated by how
his team did, as a team, against the utes?If I were to borrow that
line of thinking then no utes should be drafted. After all they haven't
beaten any of the marquis teams of the PAC since joining the conference.
Possibly not one of those teams ever.
Mark it down, I GUARANTEE that Taysom Hill will be a higher draft pick then any
Ute QB the mighty Pac QB Travis Wilson included.
Guess being Pac fodder and not going to bowl games really does affect your self
proclaimed Titan status. Beating Byu is the Utes Super Bowl make no mistake
about it. LOL
2 Cougs making the Lions D very very formidable good job Cougs!!!
Evidently the bad mouthing of KVN by Utah trolls didn't impress Mel Kiper,
Jr. or the Detroit Lions.
Elmer FuddSandy, Utah"Oh well, I guess BYU fans are
satisfied with moral victories now."Every Ute win in the last
three years has been a moral victory. You may be lucky if McGill
goes in the 4th round....will that be a moral victory?
ekute"What advantage did independence bring to any of
them."?National exposure throughout every season as one of
ESPN's media darlings."How do their successes put U in a
bad light?"Anytime BYU excels in anything, and having the
highest NFL draft pick in the state for the 2nd year in a row is a big deal, it
brings out the bitter jealousy from our little brothers on the hill.It's also an indication that no matter how shiny new facilities they
build on the hill, it's still possible to be more successful playing at
@ekuteTheir successes didn't "put u in a bad light",
utah "fans" like yourself are what puts "u in a bad light".
Too bad Detroit hired a retread coach. Caldwell is a good guy, good asst. coach,
but not a head coach as was shown in Minn. It will be after the Caldwell era
that Van Noy and Ansah will chase their super bowl dreams.
Ekute,U are as obsessed with BYU as they come. The u fans would
much rather beat BYU than succeed in their mighty conference. Witness the u
record in football the last three years. Are u looking forward to your two wins
this season and the wonderful couch potato bowl? KVN along with the others have
graduated from a top university, played on a winning team, added trophies to a
huge trophy case and grew spiritually, not to even mention the true friendships
made at one of the happiest universities in the nation! Plus he found his true
love that will always show him that there are more important things in life than
First off CONGRATULATIONS to KVN for what is sure to be an amazing journey and
exciting career!Ekute, for all of yours, CB's and every other
Ute blogger's blustering about the U's elite membership in the PAC,
what has that got U?If the end goal was to be accepted into a Top
Tier Conference, play week-in/week-out against amazingly talented opponents
(& mostly lose), and spend lots of money on incredible athletic facilities,
then U WIN. No arguments there.But, if your goal was to be relevant
on the National stage by virtue of playing anyone/anywhere, playing in Bowl
games on national television every year, have players who are consistently
recognized and nominated for various National Awards, have players drafted early
and often into the NFL who are still relevant while playing and retired, and are
recognized for their positive influences on others, then the Y WINS.Stop bloating up when some player or team from the Y excels above the U, and
accept the fact that the U has not and never will come in first every time there
is a head-to-head comparison or competition.
Good luck KVN! I've been a fan since the Lions drafted Scott Mitchell
way back when.
Here's a Utah fan that is very happy for Kyle Van Noy. He's a great
athlete, and sounds like a quality young man. He made the most of his college
experience.I wish him nothing but success at the next level.
Elmer Fudd,Would inclusion in a prestigious conference despite not
being able to win games be considered one of those moral victories?
Could anyone surmise how much Kyle will sign for with the Lions? I am very
Van Noy is going to have a great career in the NFL and is starting out by being
the highest drafted player from utah this year!Fun fact, North Dakota
State had a player drafted before U. How does that happen?
Tom in CA,KVN's dreams just came true and the first thing you do is
take staggering, weak and wild swing at Utah. lol.Like I said, good on
Kyle, good on Ziggy and good on bronco but neither player ever beat Utah and
bronco lost to Utah the last 4 years in a row so how does that poke U in the
eye? What advantage did independence bring to any of them. How do their
successes put U in a bad light?
fuddyKVN played in FOUR bowl games.How many bowl games
did Utah 2013 seniors play in.All always, BYU obsessed Utah fans
would rather beat BYU, than play in a bowl game.
Congrats Kyle! I'm sure you'll find great success in the NFL, and it
will be great to watch you and Ziggy destroy opposing offenses! Go
Cougars! Go Lions!
ElmerWe know he lost Utah coz we all saw the game. But I
wouldn't measure his success against Utah.
All Y fans!Kyle Van Noy has never beaten Utah in his college career.
He even dubbed last year's Utah-BYU game as his "Super Bowl" and
still lost. Oh well, I guess BYU fans are satisfied with moral
Yet another poke in thU eYe. I love my independence. Congrats KVN!!
EkuteObviously they want us because they picked KVN before any of U
We are extremely pleased for you KVN. Now we expect great things out of you and
your old buddy, playing together again. The Lions scored in getting you, and
moved picks to ensure they did so. That speaks volumes of what they think of
you and expect of you. You can do it, and we support you. Now go do it, and
Good on Kyle.Silly "fans", does that make up for 14-7, 0-4
and *nobody wants you*?
Wow, almost done with the third round and not a Ute has been chosen. How is that
PAC 10+ 2 membership treating U? I guess it does pay to be the ESPN darlings and
on TV every week as opposed to being the PAC 10 +2 doormats and seeing little to
no coverage. Question,where do you go to get seen by the scouts and get drafted?
Not the mighty Utes and their beloved PAC 10+ 2 membership. Hey a mid major in
their eyes had as many players taken in the first round as the Conference of
Congratulations KVN!Through two rounds: No Oregon, Oklahoma,
Georgia, Texas, Wisconsin or Utah players selected.Another
interesting tidbit - since 2009, no B1G players have been selected in the Top 10
picks.BYU 1B1G 0
Ziggy and KVN, two outstanding young men with unique paths to the NFL, because
of their hard work, and Bronco's faith in them.Lions and
Cougars, oh my!
And people don't believe in evolution?Here's a lion
transforming into a cougar.Don't be surprised if another cougar
gets drafted to Detroit.
10 years from now...hind-sight will tell the tale of why KVN should have been
The BYU Express in Detroit! Should be fun for the former roommates to play
alongside each other again.
How can this be? I thought Trevor Riley was the best prospect in the state?
Don't they know that Trevor plays for the 12th best team in the Pac 10+2
while Kyle plays a bunch of nobodies like Notre Dame, Texas, and Wisconsin? The
NFL coaches have no idea what they're doing!
33 years after watching Jim McMahon lead BYU to the Miracle Bowl win versus SMU,
I was privileged to watch Kyle Van Noy single-handedly destroy SDSU in the same
stadium.It's amazing to see KVN and Ziggy reunited in Detroit -
two of my all-time favorite and most respected BYU players!
Never thought Detroit would be on my radar but they keep moving up!Congrats KVN and good luck!
I'm going to become a Detroit Lions fans....
Lions are my favorite team now! Kyle and Ziggy will be awesome together!P.S. Two straight years BYU gets a guy picked before utah. Should
continue in the future.
So much for all those "experts" that said he would only go until the
fourth or fifth round. Time now for KVN and Ziggy to wreak havoc in the NFL. It
is going to be fun to watch the Lions this year.
Sweet!! kyle is going to rip it up with his old buddy!! ill have to go to a
game and watch them play like the old days! Go Van Noy and Ziggy!! Go Cougs!
Congratulations KVN; it's awesome to you and Ziggy reunited in the NFL!
Is Ziggy going to teach KVN? Lol which sound backward. Good luck Kyle
