    I was wondering if hedgehog was a Y fan posing as an obnoxious U fan to get everyone to hate the Utes. I actually root for the Utes (and the Y) to do well but the hedgester is almost turning me...

    Re: bumpa @ 4:36pm. What do you mean I don't know what I'm talking about? I'm not bagging on the guy. I'm merely referring to him as the position he's currently holding, based on the article-- a 4th string walk-on. I'm all for the guy making it!

    Good article. Let's hope he gets a scholarship and plays out of his head. Would love to see him be successful at BYU.

    Oldguy....go away and be negative somewhere else. I don't remember reading where he dumps on his old school. (I don't remember Riley dumping on USU). That's ok. They say the mind is the 2nd thing to go.

    so cal, you dont know what your talking about. This kid and his whole family are sick atheletes. He is just years behind on the coaching. highschool and collegiate football is nothing in Canada. All the best atheletes play hockey. why not, there is a rink in every neighborhood

    An article about a mediocre football player who, after spending two years as a missionary, wants to hang out with the other Mormons at BYU rather than tough it out among the gentiles in the frozen north. I'm guessing his move has far less to do with achieving some kind of "excellence" than it does with taking the opportunity to out with the brethren (and sisters!) at dad's alma mater (and I remember when father Phil played at the Y). Dumps on his old team the same way Riley Nelson did to USU with about the same chances of being a successful starter. Stories about real players might be more interesting.

    This article cracks me up. I'm from Aztec country (but big Cougs fan!) and have seen few similar local articles on an Aztec starter, let alone a 4th string walk-on! I love it. And I'll beat you guys to the bunch-- yes, a 4th string walk-on is EASILY better than any starter on the sorry SDSU roster!! Great article. Good luck, Dalin, in earning a scholarship!!

    Greg Wrubell writing an article about a Canadian making it in Provo as a Cougar... Shocking. :) Nice article, nice to hear about how hard some kids have to work to make their dreams come true.

    I wish him well against all teams except the U ... because I'm a U fan ... then a Y fan.

    just heard grumbling in the Raymond pharmacy yesterday that he didnt get a fair shake at qb. They dont know the difference betweeen a star at the u of c, and playing qb at BYU.

    Yeah, but just wait. I'm sure hedgehog, Chris B, or one of their ilk will have something nasty or derogatory to say about this rising young talent. Just give it time........

    Best wishes to this fine young man. I hope he can and does acheive his dreams of actually playing, lots of playing for the Cougs. I like his attitude and outlook! I'll be watching and routing for you! You have the opportunity to experience what many of us "fans" wish we would have tried or done!

    This kid is a sick athlete. He can do it all. It will be fun to watch him progress and hopefully catch Bronco's eye. He is tuned into 100% all the time. Nice to to pieces of your Cougar Tracks get a little more play for those who aren't regulars. nice job Wrubel.

    Dalin is such a rockstar. There is no doubt he will become a regular in BYU's lineup.

    Nice story, I hope he gets some playing time. This is the kind of kid that makes BYU unique - someone who will sacrifice anything to live his dream of playing for the Cougars. What a lot of people don't realize is that there are tons of kids just like him out there including Riley Nelson and Jake Heaps. That's why BYU will always be successful regardless of conference affiliation, independence, BCS, playoffs or whatever the future may bring.
