    Today is just different! For 10 straight years I took helium balloons, Danbury Cross "U" and "Y" doughnuts, and Rocky Mountain "Cougar" Oysters (hard to find- easy to get when found) tailgating to both home and away games, This year I didn't think of any of these. (I did remember the one time I was invited to go to a BYU vs. USU game. For tailgating we ate PB&J sandwiches in the van on the way to the game.) And as I was loading my car today for tailgating I wondered what time BYU's game was on. Thinking I could maybe watch some of it before I left. Then I remembered - BYU was who we were playing!

    Yes, I will remember fondly the great rivalry games we had in the past. I will probably miss them until Oct. 4th when USC comes to RES!!! This will far surpass any regular season game in Utah history!

    P.S. Our tailgating menu is Dutch Ovens galore - NO PB&J samdwiches!.

    Really, bro? Comparable in different roles, yes by all means. Either one "not holding a candle" to the other?

    " of the best defensive fronts in the country, led by its two dominant defensive tackles"

    It's indisputable that Star is a dominant defensive tackle. That goes without saying, but I don't recall seeing a game where Dave Kruger was dominant. He's serviceable but when you think about it, he's only serviceable and thats with Star getting double and triple teamed all game long. That means nobody is really paying him any attention and he's still only able to average less than 2 tackles a game and last year only had 1.5 TFL. I don't see where the dominant comes in. With Star commanding as much attention as he does, Kruger should be wreaking havoc all over the place.

    He's kind of a ghost out there, nobody notices him. Does he play hard? Hard to say, you can't tell by his stats.

    Did you just write a comment without acknowledging that KVN can't hold a candle to the best athlete and player on the field, Star Lotulelei?

    Did you just write the longest article of the year on BYU Football without even acknowledging the best athlete and player on the field . . . KVN?

    How can we believe anything you say?
