    So much for the self given title of "Best QB in the state". The "Best" QB in the state doesn't go down in the first quarter with an injury. 3-0 with my predictions and I'm loving being at the top.

    Came here to wish Chuckie a speedy recovery as a dyed in the wool BYU fan. It was sad to see him go down. I was very unhappy but not surprised to see some clown comments on here about BYU and USU from the hill trolls.

    Trolls are like stray dogs, if you don't want them to come around then quit feeding them.

    @ekute / Chris B,

    I think the USU fans who camped overnight would disagree that this was a meaningless game, and I think your constant obsession with all things BYU are a clear indication that you don't think they are meaningless.

    Has anyone else noticed Chris B's MO of dropping a bunch of early comments, and then leaving the conversation? Rarely, if ever, answering the challenges to his comments. There's a word for this, but DesNews probably won't let me post it: It starts with a "C" and rhymes with Howard...

    Sorry to see Chuckie get hurt. Great athlete and seem like a good guy. Glad the Cougs got the win but would have rather seen it with Chuckie in there.

    Best wishes for a full recover to Chuckie Keeton.

    It's a shame the utah fans represent their university with so many negative attitudes and characteristics. Supporting Utah State doesn't mean you need to speak bad about BYU.

    Classless comments only prove cast a poor impression on yourselves and your school.

    Chris B,

    Represent the University of Utah the right way. There is no need to trash talk BYU every week. BYU played a great complete game against Utah State and deserved the win. Try complimenting them when they deserve it for a change. It won't kill you, trust me. With that said, it's very unfortunate Chuckie went down. He definitely would have made the game a lot closer. Let's hope the Utes pick it up this week in practice and stick it to Stanford. Once again, good game Cougs you deserved the win.

    Chris-- what was that we were supposed to "mark down" a couple days ago? What was the score when Chuckie got injured? How much time does he typically play on defense that may have prevented 31 pts. being put up by BYU? Whose offense was on the field more time? Let us know when you have answer to those questions for us.

    Well said ekute. And even if Utah state had win, beating byu is not considered a good win anymore. The whole nation mocked Texas for losing to them weeks ago. This is reason for usu and Utah to stop playing them.

    We don't want to help them get needed games and they aren't a respected opponent.

    Good luck the rest of the year aggies.

    That is the right attitude and about the only thing that the coach can say at this point. Having said that, however, you just cannot replace a quality player like Keeton with only good attitude and great teamwork. His presence will be sorely missed I am afraid. I feel badly for USU and certainly wish them and Keeton the best going forward - from a lifelong Cougar supporter.

    Tough deal to lose you're star quarterback in a meaningless game vs a meaningless team.

    Best wishes to Chuckie and Aggie Nation.
