I keep hearing how weak the cougar's schedule is but I don't agree.
Houston is a very good team. Nearly everyone back from last year. Central
Florida needs a new quarterback but they'll be very good. Boise and Utah
State are very good teams if history repeats itself. I think Virginia will be
stronger than last year and certainly won't be a pushover. California is
an unknown commodity. They were weak last year as their record indicates but no
Pac 12 team is a pushover. You have to play the game and play it well or a loss
occurs. I don't know about Connecticut. They led against Michigan last
year until the very end. The reason we have games is to play them and determine
a winner. I just enjoy the competition. The Cougars will be challenged in
nearly every game. I hope they win more than they lose. That's my take on
Alpiner, are you trying to imply that the coaches made a mistake by not playing
Ziggy earlier and more often? If so, you are probably quite new to BYU sports
and don't realize that Ziggy's playing time was directly related to
his knowledge, skill level, and preparedness.
Chill out, folks. There may be several reasons why Trent Trammel and Jordan
Johnson are not getting first team reps:1. they are both coming off major
ACL injuries and the coaches don't want to push them too fast. Several
articles have mentioned that it is taking time for them to get confidence in the
rebuilt knees;2. Bronco is building depth--limiting the reps for reason
no. 1 and giving others the chance to show what they can do. I think the
coaches are limiting the reps of Rob Daniel for the same reason: the coaches
know what he can do and they want to give more reps to talented young players
like Mike Davis; and3. the third and most unlikely reason is discipline.
Jordan Johnson has said that he will play in the U Conn game, and we have heard
nothing from Trammel or Daniel to indicate that they will miss the game for
Bronco has chosen to keep disciplinary issues private, between Bronco and the
athlete, which, to me, is the correct way of handling them.It may be
frustrating to us fans not to know all of the details, but I think it's
better for the athletes to be able to discuss such things with their coach
without having to worry about the details of confidential discussions being
broadcast to the rest of the world.
I wonder who this year's Ziggy is; sitting on the bench because they think
someone is better.
What the heck happened to Trent Trammell? Wasn't he supposed to be in the
mix at CB?
Now, remind me again why Jordon Johnson and Rob Daniel aren't getting 1st
team reps? Is this another one of those "internal" disciplinary actions?
Sure seems to be a lot of that going on...Sounds like a large
proportion of our best players will be riding the bench against UCONN.
It would be nice to have some explanation why Johnson & Rob Daniel
aren't running with the first team. Don't ask Mendenhall about
suspensions just ask him directly why two supposed starters aren't playing
with the starters and let him take it from there. As a fan I like to know what
to expect come gameday so give us some indication please.
Since Friday's practice is open to the public why doesn't someone that
is going video tape the practice and post it on utube for fans outside the Utah
area to watch? I know I would appreciate that.
Mildred - I've missed you!
This scrimmage will be better than a lot of the college football regular season
games. A very powerful offense against one of the best defenses in the
country.ESPN should broadcast it.
