    The UTES are not the ones that are inserting the National Championship talk. That comes from your head coach, and St Jake. He, and I quote, said, "I dare anybody to say we cant win a national championship." Some UTE trolls do like to get a rise ouf of Y fans with the whole Quest thing gone worng, but it is your coach, and QB talking about BCS games, and NC games, and winning them.

    I hope all of your catches are 6 inches or less.


    "Getting excited about field goal kicking..."

    Flashback 1998. Remember Ryan Kaneshiro's 32-yard field goal attempt that went "Doink"? Bet you would have been excited had it gone through.

    Would a "I (Heart) Sammyg" shirt help you out?

    Didn't Louie Sakoda win a heisman oh wait he didn't, but he was the best player on that team, and Ute fans wanted him to win a heisman.

    I sure wish the Utes had better prospects this year. Then their fans might have better things to do than spout off on BYU stories.

    Once again the first poster is a troll. Then nearly every other comment is either a response to their ridiculous pseudo-logic, invective, or wishful thinking, or another jab by the haters. Pathetic.

    As Ute fans may recall from 2008 when King Louie was winning close games against TCU and OSU, having a dependable field-goal kicker on the team is priceless. So don't knock Y fans' excitement at Sorenson, who has extraordinary range (63-yarder in high school).

    J3HS your comments show you lack considerable about the importance of a great kicker and one who can nail 57 yard field goals. You comments are meant to be spiteful. I guess you did not appreciate Louie Zakoda from a few year ago. How many games did he help you win in your BCS runs. Please go read your Ute stories and make such comments there.

    "Getting excited about field goal kicking is like claiming glory for going to the Vegas Bowl several times in a row"

    Ha ha. That's rich coming from a Ute fan. How is "King Louie" doing these days?

    With your disdain for fans not getting exited about kickers, I'm guessing you were busy encouraging your fellow Ute fans not to wear the King Louie Shirts from a couple years ago?

    Yeah, who gets excited about kickers? Only a bunch of crazy people would want a kicker to receive a Heisman, for example. Amirite?

    Utah trolls I would be more worried about your offensive line than I would about a BYU kicker. Life will not be as easy as a weak schedule (like Utah, Boise State, and Hawaii have had) to get back to a BCS bowl and next year USC will be back to dominate the South.

    I'm wondering if there is somewhere in the country that a coach says "Yeah, I'm pessimistic about this team. I think things are finally starting to fall apart. The offense has little to improve, the defenence is starting to be incohesive as a unit, and the kicking game has been sporadic. I think, with time, we'll be a pretty mediocre football team."

    Of course Bronco and Whit are optimistic. I'm guessing the coach for Idaho State is too.

    "The practice session featured a few minor skirmishes, and Mendenhall cut the team session short due to "inconsistency, with tempers overriding execution."

    I'd run 'em until they puke, coach...that will help them control their tempers.

    How did Utah do in their last Las Vegas Bowl? Oh that's right, they always play in and dominate BCS bowls.

    Smack showing that you are Worried about the fans of the team causing your inferiority complex saying they are excited to have an excellent kicker on their team is like claiming glory for going to the Vegas bowl....Then rolling over, giving up and getting stomped!
    Thank's for the comic relief.

    I agree with you Striker. Sorensen could be a game changer with long fg's and regular touchbacks. Good to see some fire in the team. Hopefully they can focus their emotion in getting ready for Ole Miss.

    Getting excited about field goal kicking is like claiming glory for going to the Vegas Bowl several times in a row as other teams in the region such as Boise ST and the U go to multiple BCS games.

    I think someone needs to go fishing and stay fishing and hope his ipad falls to the bottom of the lake.

    Sorensen hit a 57 yarder!!! Man, I'm so excited about this guy.

    Funny because although the press has been reporting how well BYU is doing in camp,

    ute trolls are the only ones inserting NC talk a quest in the way you are insinuating right now.

    give it up, and quit "fishin" for a fight.

    What's wrong? Nothing to root for on the ute side?

    All I have heard out of BYU's fall camp is rainbows and butterflies, not to mention the NC hot air. Sounds like the "Quest" part 2. Where do I get my t-shirt?
