Here we go again. Same results, different season. BYU goes bowling, u the
familiar chip 'n dip bowl.
Proud Ute: No, I looked at one article about Kyle, because I like him, we went
to school together way back when, and then I came to some BYU articles. I
noticed Naval commenting on BYU, but not his coach. My single spaced rant is
from two or three years of irritation at reading comment after comment from
naval where he says the same thing over and over and over, no matter what the
article itself was addressing. I am glad you are easily amused.
@ Proud Ute,Glad we Coug fans could provide you with your daily
laugh! Keep coming to our articles for your daily dose. Ain't it great?
@ Proud Utepot or kettle...?
@fan in Orem, "And no, I don't care enough to google your
comments. I just noticed you had commented on this article, but not this
morning's article about Kyle". Yet you cared enough to
write a single spaced rant plus go through every other U/BYU article
"noticing" Navel Vet's comments. You Happy Valley
posters crack me up. I don't have to search for Dilbert for my daily laugh
at life off kilter with you guys around.
"Ute fans don't have the same singular mindsets as our indy-irrelevant
midmajorey little brother. We're far more diverse."TRANSLATIONUte fans can hate one team while ignorantly believing
their own team is doing well despite facts to the contrary. I
don't know if we really need that kind of diversity on these discussion
boards. It reminds me of the liberal mindset that "we accept anything and
everything... except your traditional viewpoints." Having a team that you
love and root for (without hating on other teams) doesn't mean you have a
"singular mindset" but it does show class. Fortunately there are
several universities in Utah with fanbases that are extremely classy.
BYU's depth at QB seems a little thin to me. From a Ute fan perspective
that's not a good thing. I didn't think much about this problem until
the Jordan Wynn situation occurred. Trust me, you want more than an adequate
backup. Utah has gone too long with just adequate backups at QB and it
hasn't been good. Of course, maybe Bronco is looking at the level of the
competition BYU will face this year and figures anything will do. LOL
People who read articles concerning schools of whom they are not fans and
comment about those articles fascinate me with their apparent insufficient
interest in their own school. They would be a fun subject for someone's PhD
dissertation in Psychology at your University of choice...As a BYU
alum, the only reason I even read articles or listen to radio talk shows about U
of U football or basketball is because I am a genuine FAN of Ute sports, not
because I have time to waste, trolling their comment pages...
Naval: It's a free country, for the most part, so yes, you can do both. The
problem is, you always say the same crap every time, and I have to wade through
it all while trying to get information on the team I care about. If by saying
you are more diverse you mean you come up with one of four different dumb
phrases to type on here every day, I guess you are diverse. Today it is
mid-majorey, yesterday it was frantic and emotional, tomorrow it will be some
form of 'we are in and you are out'. I just don't get how that
makes your team win any more games or really helps anyone who is interested in
sports. And no, I don't care enough to google your comments. I just noticed
you had commented on this article, but not this morning's article about
Kyle. That fact seems to speak for itself. I think you and others here are way
too invested in thinking your personal worth is so high because your team got in
fan in orem:"How about if you go tell everyone your thoughts on
whether Kyle will keep his job after this season..."Can't I
do BOTH? Of course I can. Ute fans don't have the same singular mindsets
as our indy-irrelevant midmajorey little brother. We're far more
diverse.If you really are curious concerning my thoughts on whether
or not Kyle will/should keep his job after this season, then Google the article,
"Utes have earned respect, but not much interest", and check my comments
there in my dialogues with "Mark M" and "KriyaYoga". And for
what it's worth, that wasn't my first comment regarding that matter.
So you can be reassured...I'm way ahead of you.As for the
BigTen, today is Day 2 of their Media Days. Will Gurney or Harmon offer us an
indepth expose on how this conference will continue to not invite the Y?
Afterall, we've all already heard the cougar angle for every OTHER Power 5
league's Media Days. So why not the BigTen's as well?
Taysom should be much improved this year. If you throw out the first 3 games of
last year Taysom was a 60% passer. I think BYU as a whole would be much better
off with 3rd and short and that seemed to be an issue with last years team.1st down run goes nowhere.2nd down pass incomplete or short
gain.3rd and long have to throw.If BYU can come up with a
better less predictable pattern I think they'll be much better off as an
offensive team. I would actually rather see them break up first down to a 50/50
pass run play to throw off defenses a bit more. Even with an incomplete on
first down you could run on 2nd, hopefully for a nice gain. Some designed draw
plays on 1st and 2nd downs would also help mix things up.Bottom line
is Taysom's greatest threat will likley remain his legs, not arm, however
BYU should figure out a way to use those legs in a more designed and less
frequent way while he shocases an improved arm.
ChrisB, I think Bronco is focusing on what Hill's improvement through the
season not only the first 4 games. Makes sense, seems reasonable. Hill is an
exceptional physical specimen for a quarterback. I think BYU is covered with the
stable of quarterbacks it has. Good Luck BYU and Also Good Luck Utah and Utah
State. This should be a great year of football.
Naval, how frantic and emotional of you to keep coming on these threads and
commenting, when you don't even bother to comment on your own team's
articles. How about if you go tell everyone your thoughts on whether Kyle will
keep his job after this season, and we will worry about whether Taysom can throw
some completions? Last year, Taysom spent his entire preseason rehabbing a knee.
Not much time to throw. This year he has worked on his throwing. I am going to
predict that he will be much better at it this year because of the practice
Hill had the worst passer rating in the entire country through 4 games last
year.Why woulndnt bronco be comfortable with that?LOL!
So many posers on here that someone should start a modeling agency. Hill is a very gifted athlete and his determination to improve will certainly
be seen on the field. I'm looking forward to the season. In fact, it
can't come soon enough so we have something to read & write about
that's more than just speculation. Go Coug's!!
I thought Green was transferring.
@ Cosmo's CousinI've heard from my sources that the BIG 12
is already prepared to go public with the invite. Holmoe and Mendenhall are
waiting till the end of the season to accept. Done deal.The Heisman
race has to officially play out for Taysom to obtain the award this year. Just a
matter of time.
With the way Hill is playing and all of the depth at QB, BYU will make the
national championship playoff before Taysom graduates.There's a
good chance Taysom will bring the Heisman home to Provo.Then the Big
12 will have to invite BYU.
Wayne, life is too short and football is too much to be enjoyed to keep grinding
that axe. If you have been blessed with the resources to not only have season
tickets but to fly in to enjoy the games, then enjoy!
I guess they can all field punts. Throwing does not matter.
BYU's offense is going to surprise a lot of folks this season, especially
the usual jealous detractors from the hill.
