Hey Utes... wake up! Nobody said that getting to a BCS bowl game wasn't good.
It's fabulous! But... it isn't a national championship. Utah fans seriously
think that it's not possible for a non-BCS team to win a national championship?
C'mon... if Utah had run the table this year, they would have been in the
national championship game. Nobody could ignore the fact that they would have
had a 25 game winning streak. That's pretty much what it took for BYU to get
their national championship. Either way, it's a moot point for both teams this
year. There is a sliver of a possibility that one team could get a BCS bowl
bid.Losing Jacobson could be a big hit to the Cougars. However, I
think BYU will be feeding teams a big dose of Harvey Unga the next few weeks.
It would be nice to have McKay back for the TCU game 'cuz I don't think Harvey
can have a big day against the Horned Frogs. I think Utah and BYU need to worry
about TCU before they worry about eachother.
Because utah is terrible this year...bottom line...you all know its true...you
just are not a good football team...you have a terrible QB...your recievers are
not as great as you all think...and the mighty asiata is out for the year and
will probably never play football ever again...its sad really i would love to
have seen 2 bruising back play against each other in Unga and Asiata...i think
Unga is a much better back...but Asiata is very good...or was...bottom line BYU
will "MOST LIKELY" beat utah by 21 points...not i said most likely and i am not
proclaiming a BYU victory..
It's sad that some "disappoint U" fans still consider winning a BCS game the
best they do "under the current" system.As the saying goes, "lead,
follow, or get out of the way."Despite the deck being stacked
against them, BYU fans dare to dream bigger than a mere BCS win.Maybe that's because BYU has been there, done that, winning a national
championship that nobody at the time thought was possible for a team not in one
of the power conferences; going from pre-season unranked to #1 in late November
shocked the college football establishment.If Utah fans are
convinced that it's not possible for a non-BCS team to win a national
championship "under the current system," please just get out of the way and
watch a team with a can do attitude prove you wrong--maybe BYU won't be the
first to do it, maybe it'll be TCU or BSU, teams, and fans, who dare to dream
Classic diversion tactic to make BYU's continued failure to accomplish what Utah
has already done less pathetic.BYU can't even get themselves into a
BCS game, and yes under the current system that is the end-all goal of any
non-BCS conference team, yet to diminish that you actually talk about BYU
getting to a national championship game! Classic! I love it! Basically you're the high school kid who has never been on a date but keeps
telling everyone he's taking the head cheerleader to the prom! Shoot for the
stars and it makes your failure seem more admirable.FYI - I seem to
remember last year a certain team down south being obsessed with getting to the
BCS. Printing T-shirts, breaking their huddles by saying "BCS," but I'm sure
what they meant was "BCS isn't good enough, even though we can't get there, we
need to get to the title game!"Can always count on delusional Cougar
fans to bring a little laughter to the day.
I love BYU fans speaking of their legacy.Legacy is in the past just
like Cougar glory.
As mentioned previously, BYU has played 2 great games, 2 mediocre games and one
lousy one. However, neither TCU or Utah have done anything to boast
about either.TCU is a very good team, but they have yet to play a
team that has a winning record, and that includes the 1AA team they played. Utah lost to a good Oregon team on the road, but that was before oregon
QB Masoli realised that there was a difference between the stadium turf and his
recievers. The three teams Utah has beaten all have a 1-3 record.
Utah's largest margin of victory over these teams was a meager 18 points.BYU beat then #3, now #19 Oklahoma in their own backyard. Destroyed
Tulane, who is now 2-2, by 51 points. Lost to an inconsistant FSU and beat now
1-3 USU by 18 like Utah did.All 3 teams are very good, but BYU is
the only one who, this season, has shone glimpses of greatness.
McKay is a great player. However, the way the Cougars spread the ball around, I
think that his loss will go pretty much unnoticed. Pitta and Unga are the
pistons that run this machine. McKay wasn't going to get the ball much this
weekend anyway - It's UNLV! I think that means a 300+ yard rushing game.What to say about the Utes? Good team, but still trying to convince
everyone that a BCS bowl game is more important than a national championship.
Hmm... every year there are 10 teams that go to a BCS bowl game, 5 teams win a
BCS bowl game, but only 1 national champion. I don't care how long ago it was
that a team won it, they reached the pinnacle. If you haven't been there, you
only know what second place feels like.
BYU fans probably ride the craziest emotional roller coaster in the nation every
year. From talk about winning the National Championship after
winning one game, to the loathing and self-pity after getting schlacked by an
unranked FSU. Another win and the talk is that they could still make
the BCS and Utah and TCU are in the bag. Then they start calling for their
back-up QB after talking about their Senior QB all off-season. But
dont worry, there is always winning the recruiting battle, and attendance smack
talk!! And as always, the sense of persecution because their rival's fans post
on "their" articles. Really, you'd rather win 10 games a year and
play the #5 Pac-10 team in a bowl no one cares about than go to a BCS game? Just
keeping telling yourselves that and you might start to believe it.Your flailing is truely a pleasure to watch.
but busting the BCS is not the end all, be all goal of the BYU football program;
it may be for Utah, but BYU's focus aims just a little higher than merely
winning a BCS gameany division 1 program that doesn't have as one of
it's short or long-range goals winning a national championship, is just playing
the sport as a hobbythat's the trouble with Utah fans; they
mistakenly believe that Utah has reached the pinacle of college football because
Utah went undefeated and won a BCS game (twice)reality check:no matter how many BCS games Utah wins, those wins will NEVER equal a
national championship until Utah finishes #1 in at least one of the two major
polls, AP or Coachesit took BYU 6 years of banging on the door of
playing for the national championship, before the Cougars finally broke
throughthe Cougars were one botched, chip shot field away from
having an undefeated season in 1979, but still wouldn't have finished higher
than 6th in the pollsit took 24 straight wins and an undefeated
season before the Cougars finally broke through in 1984
Reciever worries are not the problem for the Cougs. It is the Thin Defense.
TCU's offense will hurt the cougars more than their defense will effect
should wait until the Utes have a legacy, before trying to minimize the legacy
of their rival.Try to win just ONE national individual award
(Heisman, Davey O'Brien, Outland, Doak Walker...)Try to finish in
the Top 25 more than once every 3 or 4 yearsTry to win more than two
conference championships in a rowTry to win 10 or more games for
several years in a rowTry to win at least one national
championshipTry to maintain a national reputation for a decade or
moreOnce you've done that, you'll finally understand what a legacy
BYU fans talk about 3 decades of gaining national respect like a washed up
fighter blathers on about the glory days of the past.BYU had a rare
opportunity to have a truly special year, but they arrogantly underestimated
FSU.BYU has only one undefeated season in its history and they
crumble in the big games.BYU fans should just hold their comments
about being a nationally respected program until they prove themselves by the
standards of the current era of college football.Prove yourself BYU.
Get to just ONE BCS game. Then worry about getting to TWO with blowout
Is that BYU has 3+ decades of earning national respect in football, whereas,
Utah is a Johnny-come-lately with no accomplishments of any national
significance until 2004.When BYU busts the BCS, and it's only a
matter of time when, not if, it'll just add to BYU's legacy.After 2
BCS wins in 5 years, the national respect for Utah evaporated after ONE loss on
the road.After getting creamed at home, BYU dropped, but still
stayed in the polls, because BYU has national respect earned over the course of
several decades.Unless Utah continues winning for the next decade,
fans will look back on Utah's 2 BCS wins as simply a flash in the pan, much like
Northwestern was a few years ago.
All those conference championships and BYU can't get to a BCS game without
buying a ticket.Oh where is the justice?????
I used to enjoy watching BYU football, then I met their fans and that ruined it
all for me. Now I know if they lose I don't have to hear from them. What a
BYU's 14-1 Cotton Bowl winning team is easily the equivalent if not more
accomplished than Utah 2004.BYU's only loss was to a Top 25 team, on
the road, but BYU also won two more games than Utah in 2004 and played a MUCH
TOUGHER schedule than Utah.Utah's 2004 team only played THREE teams
with winning records during the entire regular season, and Utah's "BCS" bowl
opponent is probably THE WORST BCS team ever to play in a BCS bowl. Pittsburgh
didn't even appear in the polls until the very end of November and promptly
dropped out of the polls after the Fiesta Bowl. The Panthers finished in a
four-way tie for the Big East championship, that's over half the teams in the
conference who tied for the "championship."
smack talk about an injury, thats real classy. Course I shouldn't expect
anything more from a yewt fan. And why is it that you have to talk senseless
smack on everything about byu, are you that insecure? It just makes you look
more pathetic when you do.
BYU fan haters we are!
Utah has won five conference championships since 1974 that's right five. Utah
has never, not once, won a decade of championships not since since 1974 Short
tearm Medium Term or long term. BYU has won 23 championships since 1974,
(’74, ’76, ’77, ’78, ’79, ’80, ’81,
’83, ’84, ’85, ’89, ’90, ’91, ’92,
’93, ’95, ’96, ’99, ’01, ’06, ’07) As
well as two division championships, in the old WAC (’96, ’98). On
Top of that, they won the decade of the Seventies, five championships. Eighties
Six Championships and the Two Thousands three championships. Match that with
Utahs five total championships. Your Pathetic 5... BYU has 23 Championships
now even at the ute they have math classes don't they. Well Maybe not. TWO GREAT
YEARS DOE'S NOT A PROGRAM MAKE.
you had better get that nab that moose and catch that bass that keep showing up
on the ute pages before you go talking like that.
Can you please explain this comment to me? You sure are making a big deal out
of three "Top 25 finishes and 10+ win seasons." It has been 25 years since BYU
has done ANYTHING meaningful. Oh, except standing in the charity line with
their greedy hand outstretched to the University of Utah after the bowl season.
Your predictions are interesting...you've got your crystal ball
Just think...J.J. will constantly be available for words of wisdom to the Des
News. I can hardly to hear what he has to say next!
Let's see, 71 comments on the Cougar article, a whopping 7 for the Utah article.
Shows they're not Utah fans, just BYU haters. W-E-A-K.
Are you kidding me? You should have said "The Yewts don't read THEIR OWN
ARTICLES in the DN". Look at the comments. Most are from bitter Yewts,
re: Re: slappy of the wasatch | 4:53 p.m. Oct. 5, 2009 Civility,

Funny how you know the difference. Somethnig tells me you've been on the wrong
end of 1 too many of whatever they are. Seriously or not, Its gotta
be a lecture because Zoobs love to get on their High Horse and look down their
noses at us alleged godless apostates who sell contraband to youngsters @
RES.There is VERY LITTLE (other than psychological) iIF ANY
difference between Ute Nation & TDS that prompts me to remind you to, "Lighten
Point 1: BYU will be fine. This year's offense doesn't rely too much on one
player. Jacobsen adds a deep threat, but if you take that away, BYU still has a
great offense. Point 2: The debate over which program is better is
old and leads nowhere. The question is: "What has this year's team done?" BYU
has looked great in two games, mediocre in two games, and terrible in one. Utah
has looked mediocre in four games. I'd take BYU this year, and apparently, so
would the pollsters. Point 3: If an injury to one player can truly
hurt a team, would you rather be without Mckay Jacobsen for 4-6 weeks, or
without Asiata for the year? By the time the Utah game rolls around, Jacobsen
will likely be back, but Asiata will still be gone. I'd say that Asiata meant
more to the Utes, and if any team will suffer, and I mean truly suffer each game
due to injuries, it is Utah.
re: moose on the loose How many National Champs have there been
since the War kitties won?BTW; Do you see Miami, Florida, USC,
Texas, etc... resting on past laurels?
re: Hawk | 4:08 p.m. Oct. 5, 2009 //So open your minds
Cougars.....everyone dislikes you//Free your mind and the rest will
Blaming the conditioning coach is stupid. Injuries happen to every team.
Jacobson is a good player and does stretch the field, but the bigger problem is
Max trying to force the ball into coverage. BYU always struggles against a fast
secondary, but using the run more effectively will be key by using play-action
passes to free up the receivers.
As dumb as your comment is about BSU losing, you topped it proclaiming a BYU
crushing of Utah.I know Cougar fans don't like/understand stats, but
here's one for you that makes your claim even more ridiculous than it sounds at
first glance:BYU hasn't even beaten Utah by more than 7 points
since.....1996! On the other hand, Utah has CRUSHED BYU by 24+ points twice in
the last 5 years.BYU's last 5 wins over Utah have been by a combined
21 points. For you mathematically challenge Cougar fans that 14+ points LESS
than your prediction. Meanwhile, Utah's last 5 wins over BYU have been by a
combined 72 points.FYI - If it wasn't for 2 miraculous plays, BYU
would currently sport a 7 game losing streak to Utah.Yeah, BYU is
going to "CRUSH" Utah this year!
Lucky we can plug in another guy. This was a freak accident that could have
happened to anyone. We will be covered because we have so many other wr's that
are waiting to get their shot. Like I said before, we have too many great
athletes to worry about one player going down. Plug in a guy that can run and
catch, not too difficult at BYU.
Little brothers don't donate $1.2MILLION to their supposed "big brother."The supposed "big brother" doesn't print T-shirts proclaiming that their
only goal left to accomplish is to do what their "little brother" has already
done.Big brother is not just good, but great. And BYU hasn't been
great in 25 years. On the other hand, "little brother" had been great TWICE in
the last 5 years.No wonder you're so dejected and jealous.
"First) it s/b obsess much? Second) I love how zoobs love to play the victim
when a Ute fan comes in to point out the obvious, Third) Its apparent this
poster totallly missed the lectures this past weekened on civility, & Fourth)
Brother McKay is needed back soon to do what? Go Home teaching?"So
how is it civil for many ute fans to troll EVERY BYU article? A bit hypocritical
don't you think? Second, they're called talks, not lectures. Lectures are what
you got when you came home past curfew as a teenager.Truth is, Utah
fell from "True National Champions" last season to not even being ranked, your
team has fallen pretty hard, you can't deny that. Trolling BYU articles won't
bring the 2008 team back, someday we will all realize that the MWC needs any
success it can get right now.I was mearly pointing out the obvious
as you say.
Oh no....who will run up Y mountain the fastest now? It was such an important
stat that it has probably made the Yner media guide. He is fast because he ran
up Y mountain, oh if only all teams had him. LOL, cracking myself up. Soon the
Cougars will be keeping stats on the distance for whomever gets to carry the
special flag before the game, such an honor. These traditions can't be matched,
you can't make this stuff up, ha! It's hilarious!
Most Ute fans don't read the deseretnews. It is biased toward byu. A lot of
those fans calling for Max Hall to be benched are your fellow pussy-cat fans.
Geez folks, where is the compassion and cheers for Jacobson to get well? 55
posts and maybe 3 wish him well. Sorry to hear he went down to injury and I
hope he gets better soon. Prepare well for UNLV and make this next win a win
for the records without Jacobsen. Go Cougars
Ha ha ha ha!! That's a good one! You are obviously absolutely dilusional if
you think BYU has any chance of a BCS bid this year!! Even funnier
is to think that you will beat TCU and Utah this year. Not going to happen!Your big win against Oklahoma isn't looking so big now is it? Your
crushing loss to FSU is looking even worse now that FSU is 2-3 on the year. Welcome to mediocrity!!
Why does this post have 53 comments but the Yewt post only has 6?????? Yewts do
you read your own articles or are you just so insecure that you feel you must
spew your negativity here? I know when Asiata went out the majority of the
posts from BYU fans expressed regret, appropriatley, at the loss. What is with
these Yewt fans.....but I think we all know.
You know, it gets very old that the BYU fans seem to assume that every post
which points out a BYU deficiency is written by a Ute fan. Trust me folks, there
are a LOT of people posting that dislike the fans of the Y and are not Ute fans.
Remember, BYU is one of the most disliked schools in the nation. So open your
minds Cougars.....everyone dislikes you
I will supersize your meal right after you finish your garbage collecting
route!! And make sure you get all the garbage out of my can, you left some in
Maybe you can take Lettermans job, CBS needs to replace a funny man and you
might just fit the bill because that is the funniest thing I have heard in a
Maybe BYU's conditioning coach should be talking to Utah's conditioning coach on
how to avoid players getting injured. I'm sure Asiata would be very interested
to learn why he wasn't told how that was accomplished.
What's up with the conditioning coaches? Harvey now Jacobson.
At some point, you need to point fingers at the conditioning coach. This just
should not be happening as much as it is.
We'll be fine. With Ashworth, Chambers, Pitta.... we got all we need.
BSU losses this week. Count on it!!! BYU will beat TCU score: 35 to 28. Count
on it. BYU will CRUSH UT by .... I don't know 35 to 42 pts, maybe more!!! COUNT
on it. BYU gets BCS bid with a one loss season and a #11 ranking. COUNT ON IT.
You read it here first.
I would bet that he will be back for TCU. We don't need him to beat Utah but TCU
no proof that Utah will have another great, BCS busting team in 5 years; in the
meantime, Utah fans will just have to live with another series of mediocre
teams, while spamming every story about BYU to try to convince themselves that
the BCS is the only meaningful accomplishment in college football and that MWC
championships, Top 25 finishes and 10+ win seasons are meaningless...because that's something that Utah is only able to do when the planets align
and the Utes have another great year.Don't hold your breath little
brothers; 2008 may have been Utah's last hurrah before slipping back into
sustained mediocrity. (see 1964)
Look at how many recievers are getting the ball at BYU...we have MORE recievers
than you...and they are ALL putting up consistant numbers BYU's spread offense
is finally SPREADING the ball around..utah...better recievers? dream on man
And to Re: Moosehead, I would rather have a 10 win team every year than a BCS
every 4 years. BCS is a bonus, you have been a halfway good team for the past 80
years, with only a couple of good seasons in your history. BYU is a nationally
acknowledged team, where are you guys ranked now? Who have you beaten this year?
Did you notice this was an article about an injured BYU player? Who mentioned
I get that it happened during stretches/warm ups, but not sure if that is before
or after opening prayer. Time for Max to live up to the hype.
Losing Jacobson is a loss for the cougs but the cougs will go marching on. I
don't think Utah or TCU can beat the cougars this year. The defense at times
has played realy well this year (except the week they took off for Florida
State) and I think they are learning how to play the spread offense. It dosn't
realy matter who BYU's opponent is, people always talk about how their team
speed is going to be hard for BYU to handle. Well, 4-1 boys and counting. Look
for the cougars to crush UNLV. I think this is a cougar team that is going to
play well on the road. Max Hall will improve on his ball control and Oneil
Chambers will step up and make big plays. Nobody has talked much about BYU's
offensive line lately, it seems as though they have had people step up and play
well. People had a lot to say about the o-line when it appeared they would
struggle. Oh "Darn the bad luck" haters, The cougars have already exceeded your
predictions. Keep improving cougars and have fun !

Look at the bright side at least we have a new fireside topic about how Jacobsen
came back from his injury in time to watch Maxi win the Heisman and help lead
his team to "another" National Championship.Go Cougs!!!
Are you smoking crack really? BYU may lose to both TCU and Utah but somefans
will say just about anything. Mew Mexico is 0-5 and about to fire there new
coach and you really think they are going to beat BYU. The same New Mexico team
that lost to New Mexico St that San Diego St beat. Stop smoking crack and get
back to the fries and burger making. You losers show just how uneducated a
certian fan base really is. Can you please supersize that.
Question: What college football fan wouldn't like to have their team visit the
BCS every 4 years or so?Answer: Zoobie but that is only because they
have never been and probably will never go.Shucks Moosey guess you
should of picked a better team to root for unless of course you are totally
content with mediocrity.
Good teams adjust and move on.Bad teams use them as excuses.
At least two people on here are predicting a loss to New Mexico. Would that be
the same UNM that lost to NMSU last week? NMSU is, if anything, even worse that
SDSU. New Mexico, pressure defense or no, is terrible. When Rocky Long left,
so did the wind in the Lobo defense's sails. BYU might still lose to TCU and
perhaps Utah, but there is really no one else on the schedule that can cause the
BYU offense any serious problems. The key questions from here on out is whether
the BYU offense will show up starting at the opening kickoff, whether they will
cough up the ball or throw to the other team, and whether they will execute in
the Blue Zone. Harvey and Manase should get a lot of touches over the next few
weeks. BYU will be fine.Just don't make me laugh with that silly
UNM stuff.MT in MD
This is a big loss for BYU as McKay was BYU's breakaway speedster and there
isn't another receiver on the team with anything close to his speed, but it's
not the end of the season. It does affect BYU's chances a little against TCU,
but Chambers, Unga, Pitta, and now Ashworth will do just fine in his absence.
Classy comments there Yewts. Let me help you out since you're
obviously no math geniuses, 4-6 weeks is early to mid-November, so, either way,
he'll be back in time to mop up the floor with the U and play in BYU's bowl
first off I predicted BYU would lose to FSU BEFORE the season started.I also
thought they would lose to OU and they surprised me. Secondly, the reason
Jacobson is such a BIG loss for the Y is because when you play teams like TCU
you have to have SPEED at wide out otherwise TCU defensive backs just sit on top
of your receivers and smother them. Jacobson has 4.4 speed and he opens up the
middle of the field for Pita and George because TCU would have to respect that
speed. Now with Jacobson out TCU can "tighten up" their coverage which will mean
BYU will have to be more creative with their offense especially their tight ends
to get them open. Max has not shown the ability to deal with pressure too well
this year so I am chalking up a loss with TCU and probably New Mexico on the
road with their pressure defense.
That is too bad for Mckay. He is a great player and will be missed. This puts
more pressure on the back ups to step up and shine. Good luck, and hope you
have a speedy recovery.
4 weeks ago Max was a Heisman candidate and you cougs were going to win the
National Championship. Now the sky is falling? Whats that all about? Jacobsen
had average numbers at best. You have the best tight end in the country so you
should be fine.
Go BSU!! Verrry Verrry convincing win over UC DAvis, Sat. morning was the best
morning I have ever had as the College GameDay crew on ESPN ripped apart and
made fun of BSU and their weak weak schedule. I hope someone else saw this, it
was hilarious. Then again I dont know why they would rip apart BSU they barley
beat an amazing divison 5 UC DAvis at home... Thats a real #6 team in the
nation... Good luck losing at Tulsa next week, this will be the 2nd division 1
team you guys have played this year! Congrats!
Hey wow good prediction, I like how you have FSU in your prediction for loses...
Oh wait that was 3 weeks ago??? Good one... I love how BC Mckay is out our
season is somehow over? Does no one realize that when Max Hall isnt throwing it
to the other team his main reciever is Pitta? And how they are running the ball
more than ever BC Unga is a beast? Lets not get worked over a "good" athlete in
Mckay, its a downer but nothing dramatic... Good try though Ute fans and BSU
Wonder how this affects Hall. He already has a huge issue forcing balls
downfield. Now with another new target, whoever takes Jacobson's snaps, does he
try to force it more to Pita?This doesn't bode well for the Cougs.
He was their deep threat.
You silly ute fans can stop skipping around the drive-up window and put your
headsets back on. Ashworth stepped right in with 5 catches for 91 yards and 1
TD. See down here in National Championshipville, we re-load when someone goes
down. Unlike you utes in Mcdonalds-land who only are good, one in every 4 years.
. . And yes you can supersize my fries. . And you should
change your mascot to the olympic rings- - -Like the olympics no one knows
you're there except every four or five years.
More touches for PITTA.
Well, my prediction for BYU will now come to pass it looks like .... losses to
FSU, TCU, Utah , New Mexico. Hey maybe BYU will get invited to the Idaho
Humanitarian Bowl (better known as the Potato Bowl)!!! BYU will finish tied for
third in MWC again!!
Give Chambers another year and I think he will come into his own. But to think
it turns on over night is a falls hope.
He may get back for the Utah game but for all intents he is done for the season.
Too bad because BYU could have really used him against TCU. Oh well, that's
football. The TCU game just bacame even more bleak for BYU.
NOOO FLIIPPPING WAYYY..Bronco always said that McKay was the best DB
he had....he broke up several potential Max Hall interceptions every game...hustle back McKay!
I believe that this is Chamber's time to shine. And I believe that he will!
Everyone needs to quit making the Collie comparisons. Note, last season was a
rare season when BYU had a "GO To" wide receiver, and the offense was mediocre
at best. Does anyone remember a star wide receiver from the 1983 team? Don't
say Kozlowski because he was just a face in the crowd in 1983. That's because
other than our star tight end Gordon Hudson, we had multiple 50 catch
receivers/backs. And that was the 2nd highest scoring BYU team in history. We
will be fine. If anything, this helps prevent Max Hall from getting tunnel
vision for one receiver. It will be neat to see Chambers step up!
ouch! that hurts
I believe you meant throwing plays, not calling??? And yes he isnt, Hall is
done, when were running the ball on 3rd and 7 it is BC chances are Max is going
to throw a pick...
It doesnt matter anyways, Anae isnt calling as many calling plays anymore due to
Max interception Hall all the plays are going to Unga... Get Nelson in there
with Unga and give us a veristile offense, Lets get that kid going and stop
wasting time on Hall.
There goes our season.
I love how obsessed ute fans are with BYU, they just can't let any article go
without talking smack (insecurity?)....too bad their team is a shadow of what it
once was.Good luck McKay, need you back soon brother!
What is everyone worried about at least we have Chambers to fumble it still
This is not happy news for happy valley. Go Cougs!
He's a weapon that we could not afford to lose. I hope the guys can step up.
However, Jacobson was the closest thing we had to Austin Collie - and even that
was a huge dropoff. I can see more balls going to Andrew George and more two
tight end formations. I guess we don't expect him back until Utah?
That's too bad, but the mark of a good team is how well the back-ups can fill in
(and is one of the biggest differences between the BCS big boys and the
Utah/Boise/TCU/BYU types).I was at the USU game Friday and actually
noticed a lot of "wrong" stretches. Most trainers will tell you now that the
stretch and hold for 10+ seconds is not the proper way to do things, even if
that is what you learned in grade school. Hopefully that wasn't what messed up
We will miss you McKay.....are you sure that is all Bronco had to say?He didn't mention the obvious of benching Hall and going with Nelson, did
