No one. No one, that is, except RealUte, Uteology, BraveSirRobin, ekute, ChrisB
and about 10 others."Well that sure is a pretty long list. Odd
that I'D never seen any of them do it. But with all those posters making
all those comments, it shouldn't take you very long to post the title of
the article where they'd done so, so we can all look it up and see for
ourselves.Otherwise, I'm calling you out on that one. You just
made that up. How frantic and emotional of you.
wallbanger you asked for it here it is this from a new article today first three
comments Real Ute - Dallas, TXJan. 23, 2019 10:49 a.m.Kalani Sitake
quoted........"Talent over experience." What "talent" are you
boasting of Kalani Sitake? BYU's recruiting classes, retention rates are
near the bottom of the FBS and have been for many years. Hey Kalani, who have
you beaten, sir? The BYU current 2019 recruiting class is ranked at #84 as of
today......and ya have no prospects on the line, other than no star D3 scrubs
pards!Real Ute - Dallas, TXJan. 23, 2019 10:40 a.m.Good
for BYU! Their recruiting classes are just plain terrible in the last 8
years.AZUTE1 - Mesa, AZJan. 23, 2019 10:40 a.m.Everything is just fine & dandy in Provo.....Then they awake to 9 straight
& counting in August.....Yikes!Go Utes!p.s. Before
anointing ZW [he literally beat nobody last year], anybody have WMU’s
defensive rankings from last year?
For the record, while jojo was indeed an Aggie, he finished his eligibility at
Akron after being booted off the team for constant trouble. Most exciting Aggie
I ever saw play

or train them up sufficiently to be successful in the NFL.Either you
have very selective memory or you’re being totally disengenuous in your
claim that Utah fans never do that.

Glad Taysom Hill had a good year. Some good days and he will be talk about a lot
by a lot of fans - BYU, Saints and including u fans. I don't watch NFL all
season except last Sunday games and the ref was bad (Saints/Rams) at that last
hit should have been called interference and why not any review or do they
don't do that? It would have been fun if to see the Saints in the Super
Bowl with the Pats. I like to see Brady to retire after the Championship game.
Taysom Hill and the Saints got absolutely Robbed of a Super Bowl Berth by the
NFL yesterday ..... any credibility that this league had left before yesterday
has been officially lost !
BYU has been represented very well in the NFL this year ......You are only
fooling yourself if you do not think that BYU football is alive and well !
Hey Ute fans, instead of attacking and making fun of BYU, their players and
their athletic department, why don't you go and cheer for your own team?
Attendance at Ute basketball games is so far down this season. How
come? Don't you Ute fans stick with your team through thick and thin?Come on Ute fans, if you love your team so much and are so pleased they
are not playing with the big boys in the PAC 12, go cheer them on, even if
they're having a down year.
@Real UteWhen was the last time a U QB led a superbowl team?
@Wallbanger and others: Ute fans have a number of times in the past disparaged
against BYU and have made statements similar to those previously alluded
to—that BYU players will rarely/never do well in the NFL, if they even
make it there. It would be interesting, but very difficult, to find those
comments on past articles. The usual suspects would be "RealUte, Uteology,
BraveSirRobin, ekute, ChrisB and about 10 others."I'm not a
BYU alum but do follow their sports. It would be nice if we could all just
celebrate the efforts of all players involved and discontinue the nasty comments
made by many commenters on both/all sides.
@Bleed Cougar Blue,In recognition of your constant flailing
desperation....... BYU football and basketball are no factor in NCAA D1
competition as of today. Sure, a very few BYU football players play in the NFL,
good for them in fact. BYU produced one legit NBA player in 38 years = Danny
Ainge. BYU has had only three sweet-16 teams since 1951. BYU football was an
analog era 1980s WAC team that didn't beat anyone. The last legit NFL QB
that BYU produced was Steve Young, not that good in my opinion, but played on
arguably the best team in NFL history.....SF 49ers.
Two overtime games.It seems that in the KC-Pats game, it all came down to
the coin toss. Both teams were moving the ball like I've never seen in
that 4th quarter. To bad the NFL doesn't come up with a plan so that both
teams have a crack with the ball in OT>

Again, I for one love seeing locals succeed in the NFL. Try not to
respond with a straw man.
Van Noy is the type of player that the Patriots love. He is not overly physical
and not overly talented but he is smart and knows his job. Congrats!
Wallbanger - Spanish Fork, UT - Jan. 21, 2019 8:22 a.m. - "BYUalum: And,
that's for any of you who always say that BYU players can never make it in

Who ever said that? No one. No one, that is, except RealUte, Uteology,
BraveSirRobin, ekute, ChrisB and about 10 others.Those guys, quite
frankly, owe Taysom Hill an honest, sincere apology. I have yet to see it.
Very impressive accomplishments
Not knocking Hill's ability but I didn't think he played that well
yesterday. Had a fumble and was out of position on one play lining up as a
receiver that caused the Saints to take a time out as the play clock was about
to expire.On the other hand, Van Noy was a difference maker on the
Pats defense. Marcus Williams was also very solid for the Saints.@BYUalum - there are very few real posters that say 'BYU kids can't
play in the NFL'. A more accurate assessment is that comments state BYU
doesn't produce a lot of NFL talent. BYU tends have a few excellent
players like Van Noy, Hill, and the DE that I can never spell his name
correctly. Kafusi might be the next.
Van Noy had a good game (cheap shot notwithstanding), but Daniel Sorenson had an
even better game. Maybe some day Andy Reid will see the value of a good
defense, but until then, he will never go to another Super Bowl.
BYUalum:“And, that's for any of you who always say that
BYU players can never make it in the NFL.”Who ever said that?
That sounded made up! I’d like to see some actual quotes posted to back up
your claim. We do know however, that the cougs don’t send very many
players TO the NFL. (10 isn’t overly impressive). But the guys that byu
usually does get there, are good, and I pull for all of our local players.It will be nice though, to not see anymore ‘Taysom gushing’
from our local byu homers for a while. Go Rams...anybody but the
Van Noy was a beast, he looks stronger than he ever has. I predict him making
several crucial plays in the Superbowl to get the Pat's another Super bowl
ring. Sorenson and Taysom represented the "Y" very good as well.
Van Noy and Sorensen both had huge games.Hopefully the Chiefs can
strengthen their defense for next year. It is not good odds to be in a shootout
against Tom Brady, though father time eventually will affect everyone.I'm sad for the Saints and the crucial no call. Chances are if the
obvious call was made, the would be in the Super bowl.
When cataloging Van Noy’s stats, why wasn’t his personal foul
listed? It could have cost them the game, and/or taken the opposing QB out of
Points are points and all, but I gotta go with Savage on this one. Two
powerfully impressive defensive performances there.
Van Noy was a monster today, one of the chief reasons the commentators are out
in left field with the constant dissing of the Pats defense. Danny Sorensen did
a nice job of ball hawking and making TD saving stops, HOWEVER when your safety
comes up with 14 tackles, there is nothing to celebrate since it means the
offense has likely picked up 10-15 yards running or passing the ball. The
Patriots could not be stopped on 3rd and 10 and that was the story. The Chiefs
had 8 lives, the Pats had 9.
As a huge BYU fan (of course), I thought all these guys played really well and
represented BYU very well in these playoffs! And, that's for
any of you who always say that BYU players can never make it in the NFL.
Taysom was great and all and is a fan favorite but "the best overall
performance"?? come on desnews. Van Noy and Sorenson easily had better
