Why did he go in the supplemental draft and not the real NFL draft? Did he not want to go in the real draft?


Why do Ute fans care so much about former BYU players? Why don't Ute fans just worry about their team that can't even make it to a bowl game?

Unga planned to come back for his senior season in 2010, but was dismissed from the team for an honor code violation. These events made it too late to enter the regular draft.

CB already knows that, he's just pulling your chain.

If he'd been at the U, he would have played his senior season without anyone even batting an eyelash. Better for his college football career; worse for him and his wife spiritually.

Hard to believe people still get into these petty discussions. I like to see what Ute players are doing just as I do BYU. What's the rub?


Too bad it didn't work out in Chicago, it seemed like a potentially good situation for him. With Tolbert already on the roster and the amount of spread they run, I don't know that he'll get much chance in Carolina. He's a good dude, and I'd love to see him succeed.

CordonBleu, how would being in a different school be worse spiritually in that situation? I didn't realize mercy and repentance were only extended to students in church sponsored schools.

Good luck to Harvey Unga! America was BUILT by underdogs. Go Harvey! Go Cougars!

I don't think Unga will have the title of all time leading rusher at BYU for long. If Jamaal Williams stays healthy he should have no problem surpassing all of Unga's records - especially if he stays for his senior year. A lot of BYU rushing record holders have left after their Jr. year.
