    @John Charity Spring

    Where would you put him? He is too small to be a WR in today's college football. A kick returner maybe? His Dad was the little engine that could. I remember him (James) was an artist in the open field.

    Let's not get down under on an obsession with the college football team in Salt Lake City. The Cougars just need to take care of business and be the best they can be. Making comparisons between the Cougars and Utes accomplishes nothing.

    I stand corrected. Hines returns were kickoffs. None the less he is really good at it and I look forward to him busting one this year.

    I love the Texas football recruiting connection. We just added another great recruit from Texas this week. BYU has a few kids from Texas so I guess recruiting as an independent has not hurt BYU like our friends on the hill seem to think. I wonder how well u does in Texas?

    "That doesn't even fit in terms of making sense".
    I like it. That's going to be my new thing.

    Hine returned kickoffs. Falslev returned punts.

    I don' hear much talk about Dye replacing last year's scatback and punt returner, JD Falslev. I thought Dye might step into that role, and sounds like he might as an H-back. But haven't heard much comparison between him and JD or if anyone thinks there is a basis of comparison. JD was so shifty and below the radar, with his pass catching too. Does Dye compare in ability or stats from high school? Looking forward to seeing him play, but as usual, hope the hype doesn't get in the way of what he can really do as a Freshmen and that expectations don't get overblown - same with all the team and especially the untested newcomers. To me as a fan, I don't want any letdowns, but can live with realistic possibilities and slow growth, don't want to see anyone so pressured that they can't measure up, Go team!

    I guess this means everyone can dust off all of their old "You punt you Dye" signs, and bring them back.

    Does JD Falslev ring any bells???

    Let us show our support and let's not all be coaches.

    Adam Hine is a very credible punt return threat. If people behind him hadn't done stupid things he would have had several returns for TD's.

    The Cougars have him listed as a running back, but it sounds like they plan to use him as a punt return specialist. I would love to see BYU have a punt returner take one all the way to the house. It has been a long time since BYU had any credible punt return threat. Maybe this year will give us that?

    @John Charity Spring - you are right but Trey won't run right in the middle like what we saw last year. Many times last year was right in the middle with no gains.

    He sure looks like his dad back to the past! Welcome aboard James - oops Trey!

    It makes absolutely no sense to place Dye as a running back--the deepest position on the entire team. There are already four fantastic running backs, and there are not enough carries to go around for them.
