Will Langi be another Manti Teo?

Langi sounds like quite a football potential. If he is just a few months back from a mission I sure hope the coaches don't let him rush himself too quickly and torpedo his career with serious injuries when he wasn't operating at more than 70-80% fitness.

I for one think the Langi transfer is a win win for both Utah and byu. He improves the athleticism of byu's team and Utah can replace him with a player committed to fulfilling Utah's goals.

If a player wants the warm fuzzy byu "experience" there is nothing wrong with that. That person just isn't the kind of person that will win big time bowl games and win big boy conference titles. If a kids' focus is on his church - that's just fine - but he should go to byu.

"Utah can replace him with a player committed to fulfilling Utah's goals."

You mean Utah's pipe dreams.

The Utes have never qualified for a bowl after playing a Top 40 schedule and the Utes are 9-18 as members of the PAC 12.

Utah only won 6 conference championships in 49 years as members of the WAC/MWC, and have only won one CC during the Bronco/Kyle era.

What makes you think the Utes are even capable of winning a big boy conference championship?

"You mean Utah's pipe dreams. The Utes have never qualified for a bowl after playing a Top 40 schedule"

And BYU has never gone undefeated against a Top 95 schedule.

"Quest for Perfection" is THE classic example of a pipe dream.

Utah has accomplished that twice.

Thanks to all of the ute fans that are obsessed with EVERYTHING BYU. We appreciate it

So we learn from Ute fans today that if a player wants to focus on church but not football, he should go to the school with a national championship in football, a Heisman trophy winner, a 9 bowl streak, and that has finished the season ranked more than 15 times.

However, if he wants to focus on football he should go to the school with no football national championship, no Heisman winners, with only about 6 seasons ended ranked, and have not qualified for a bowl game since 2011.

That makes sense.

Christopher B-

"If a player wants the warm fuzzy byu "experience" there is nothing wrong with that. That person just isn't the kind of person that will win big time bowl games and win big boy conference titles."

And Utah has won just how many "big boy conference titles?" It appears that the Utes have never had that kind of person on their rosters. Or is this the year they win the PAC?

You might want a concrete or 'rock-solid' foundation for your Program before making silly and disparaging statements.

Go Bruins! [We've won a few new year's day Rose Bowls and a couple of PAC championships along the way.]

Please explain how BYU's National Championship season has any bearing whatsoever on Utah's ability to be a contender in the PAC 12.

As skywalker stated,

"What makes you think the Utes are even capable of winning a big boy conference championship?"

The Utes have never even qualified for a bowl after playing a Top 40 schedule, something BYU accomplished last season.

Only on the hill would desperate fans try to claim that a #4 or #5 finish in the bcs was a "perfect" season.

Here's a clue:

Anything short of finishing #1 can never be considered anything more than 2nd best.

BYU completed it's quest for perfection a decade before the Utes even cracked the non-bcs AP poll.

You should have informed Rosco before he had all those t-shirts printed!
