Great start to the game! Until the penalties started...ugghhBy the
way, read an interesting tidbit about the BYU - UCONN game, from UCONN
perspective;"There will be the figurative bright lights of ESPN, as
BYU is the opponent and the game will be carried live coast to coast on national
television. It is a big, big spot for UConn football. Maybe it would have been
better to start with an FCS team or a MAC team or a team UConn could
realistically beat. Instead, UConn starts with a BYU team that won 8 games last
year, felt like it should have won 10 and is an early two-touchdown
favorite...Having a national brand like BYU as the opener will provide momentum.
The game should undoubtedly be a sellout, as BYU travels well, the UConn fan
base is excited and the ESPN exposure will help."Amazing the
perspective of non-utah folks... "National brand", "ESPN",
"Sellout crowd" etc. This team played in the 2011 Fiesta Bowl and they
agreed on the home-home soon after, while still a Power Conference team.
Mendenhall needs to let AJ Moore play. Williams will be a name of the past if
Moore can have a chance.
"I didn't even know UCON had a football team."They were
in a BCS bowl not to long ago before hitting a slump and disappearing from the
national conversation. Ute fans should empathize.
ESPN National TV during Primetime, baby! During College Football Opening
Weekend! Now BYU just has to get it done in CT.
Everybody back east will know about the Utes after the byu fans leave.
...if o-line protects Taysom- if Taysom stays healthy- and if Taysom
does not play running back, esp now Williams is out ...then byu might win
"Utes? Never heard of them out here on the East Coast..."eastcoastcoug:We might think you actually believed that if you
weren't so obsessed with commenting on Utah stories.
Congratulations Utes! You have started your extremely tough schedule by beating
a bowl subdivision team who hasn't won a road game against anyone in almost
10 years. My flag football team would probably look just as impressive against
I'm worried about all the suspensions for this first game. Without knowing
for sure, I worry that BYU is too often quick to suspend someone without
considering other punishments. Things like requiring school or community
service, extra class time or credits, etc. should also be considered.
Suspensions not only punish the player, they punish the whole team and an entire
fan base that didn't have anything to do with the infraction. Sure wish
minor offenses would be assigned other forms of punishment!
Go Cougars! Good showing by Utah last night, let's keep it going tonight!
taysom4hesiman,YOu said Jordan Johnson was playing.What
If the o-line protects Taysom...If Taysom stays healthy...BYU by 30.
kugrlover:Literally laughed...well done!BYU just needs to go
out and play ball tonight. Don't worry about last year, don't worry
about suspensions, just go out and play ball and you'll be fine.BYU 38UConn 17
We traveled out to UCON for tonight's game.. We are pretty excited, the
people her are very nice but we want a win! They have all been saying they wish
BYU was further east so that we could be in a conference with them.
"I hear it's gonna be the next big thing..."I agree
kugrlover. In fact I heard that internet thingy was invented by the same guy who
invented cold fusion at the U.Cougars win tonight by 2 touchdowns
and shake that nasty season opener from last year...
@patriotI know all Ute fans thirst for knowledge, so let me educate
you. UCONN does indeed have a football team. In fact, a BCS bowl team. I am
sitting here watching a replay on ESPN Classic of the 2011 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl,
in which the Huskies acquitted themselves well before finally losing to an OU
team that featured DeMarco Murray, Ryan Broyles etc.If you
don't believe me you can look it up on the internet - you know - that thing
which was no doubt invented by someone up on the hill. I hear it's gonna be
the next big thing.
Only worried about "trolls"? Comment boards are meant to be fun. Who has
a complex if all you can think about is what someone says about your team?
Better worry about Uconn as they are world beaters. Predict byu will
squeak it out by 6 and the world will be fine on their way to a BCS game. Predict USU will neat TN tomorrow.
Utes? Never heard of them out here on the East Coast...Go Cougs!!
hey babyUnlike the Utes who book end their season with two of the
worst teams in college football.
@Patriot...Don't specify " opener"...uConn is one of
TSDS's better opponents. They end with Savannah State...Nationally respected...Go Utes
wow what an opener!!! I didn't even know UCON had a football team.
Cougs, get rid of those opening game jitters and have a great game. It will be
fund to watch especially in person. We should out number the Uconn fans - it is
I don't think you can overestimate Williams value to the offense. I do
think they will be fine at the running game, but Williams absence is
significant. BYU wins by 13 and starts it's run at a 11-1,may be a 12-0
I love this quote by the UCONN Coach, previously at Notre Dame. Just another
example that the trolls on these BYU articles are blowing jealous words to make
themselves feel better. The coach said,“We expect a
nationally branded BYU team that over the last 20 or 30 years, hard-pressed to
find a better organization and university in the country,” Diaco said. A nationally respected brand. I agree, it would be hard to find a
better organization and University in the country.
The UConn game will be an eye opener for a lot of people. Specifically, they
will realize that the loss of Williams is not as big of a loss as they
thought.The irrefutable fact is that the combination of Hine,
Lasike, and Brown will be just as effective as Williams, if not even more
effective. Those three have skills that will more than compensate for
Williams' absence.There is no doubt that Williams accomplished
a lot last year. But there is no doubt that he monopolized the vast majority of
the carries.Any one of the other running backs would have been just
as effective if given the same number of carries. Don't forget that Hine
out rushed Williams in the Idaho State game, on fewer carries. BYU will be just
Keep serving up that troll bait, baby! These articles are like catnip for Utah
fans with inferiority complexes.
