    @ Duckhunter---you are spot on. I was scouting that game for (?) and the O-lineman made a deliberate move at Fuga's knee.
    In the NFL, John Bender wold have a bounty on his head, errrrrr, knee.

    Glad to hear Romney has made it back and is ready to go, its a real shame that a nevada player got away with a dirty cheap shot. Fuga is a great player and an anchor on the DL at NT, looking forward to seeing him in action again this season.

    Best of Luck Romney!

    That was one of the cheapest shots on a player I have ever witnessed. Truly low and completely unnecessary considering neither player was even in the play, they were on one side of the field and the play had gone the other direction, the play was actually almost done and Romney was just kind of trotting along, the Nevada player ran up behind him and went straight for his knee. Really disgusting.

    That said it sounds like his knee still bothers him some and that may limit him. Hopefully he will be able to play alot with minimal effects but if it still gets sore that means it isn't 100% and he may have some issues as the season wears on. Hopefully the other guys can pick up the slack it may cause. Fortunately DL is a position that see's a fair amount of substitutions anyway and BYU has depth there. That should help Romney get some rest and maybe minimize the pressure on his knee.

    Good luck Romney! The Cougars need you!

    Good luck to Romney for a successful season. Regardless of the rule, that hit was cheap.

    It's great to be 2 or 3 deep with quality players in every position on the DL. BYU is going to have a tough Defensive this year.
    First game is in 15 days!
