I feel bad for John Beck. He has a ton of talent but never got to show what he
could do because he never had a decent supporting cast around him: Miami,
Redskins or....he was buried on the depth chart (Ravens, Texans).Seems to me that making it big in the NFL is part skill and part luck of the
@hedgehogYes, John Beck is the one who had great emotion to play for a
school he loved. That's bad?
I thought John Beck would be coaching by now. I will have to watch a BC Lions
Hedgehog is back! I heard he saw his shadow and that means only two months
until football season!
Missouri makes a very good point. I've noticed that Ute fans seemingly
spend more time reading BYU articles than they do on Utah articles since they
make so many more comments there. Not only that, but they are usually the first
ones there to comment. The fact that you, Chris (or should I call your 2013 Ute
moniker?), are the first once again to comment on this BYU related article,
proves my point. Papers are like any other business. They just try
to give what the customers want. And it's obvious readers want more about
BYU. There are usually multiple times more comments on BYU articles than on Utah
articles... whether for love or hate. Regardless, the interest is there and
it's genuine. If you and your buddies quit commenting so much
on BYU articles, then maybe your request for relatively more Ute articles will
carry more weight. Just a thought.
Check the SLtrib.
Is this the guy who cried a few years back?
Chris, the articles you're looking for are over on the far less read MUSS
blogs. Since you have your radar tuned exclusively to anything anti-BYU/Mormon
you'd be hard pressed to find much of what you're asking for.
It's simple supply and demand and there just isn't much demand for
articles on Utes in professional sports apparently.Evidently you
still enjoy reading the articles about Jimmer though - you're always first
to comment on every single one of them.
Lions.Right team, wrong league.
"After that, the 'lion's' share of reps...."Yuck, yuck, yuck.This coach wins the bad pun for the day.
The real question is-where will he go next? He ought to purchase his own moving
van. It will probably pay for itself with the two additional moves before he is
back coaching at the Y.
I think Deseret News would post more articles about professional Ute players, if
there was more than 6 readers that actually cared.
@ Ute Seniors.... There was an article 2 weeks ago about Keith McGill signing
with the Raiders... If you use the comment activity as a gauge, not many people
paid attention to it. If Utah fans want to make a case for more articles about
Utah they should probably spend less time in the comment section on BYU articles
and more time on Utah articles... Just an observation...
des News - could we get daily updates on all Utes who play professional sports?
Or would that require too many new writers compared to the few staff that can
cover things for byU?
