When I went to BYU it led the nation in kick off returns also but that is
because The Y lost so often. think Tommy Hudspeth as coach. Bragging about
kickoff return yards is like bragging about getting two black eyes in a fight.
...so losing teams don't qualify for MWC player of the week honors? Max Hall
sets a MWC single game passing record, and the honor goes to a Ute who rushed
for 100 yards? BYU had a 100 yard rusher too. And Collie had more receiving and
return yardage than anyone in the league, and the honor goes to a Ute?Don't get me wrong, Utah played great, looked great, and deserved some honors,
I don't think Mack deserved the offensive honor, nothing special about 100 yards
rushing--except Utah hasn't had one in awhile.
bball, oh please....stop whining.
Stop Whining. Hall will get his awards. It was the Utes' day - they provided the
MWC with its biggest win since TCU/Oklahoma - let them have the awards.
A Brad Rock look a like article. Why doesn't your DesNews crew tell a few more
hockey stories and such? You're not a true sportscasting group until you do so.
I hear Collie was on crutches yesterday. That doesn't bode well for the Cougar
special teams that aren't so special after all. Still, he and Hall should have
had some consideration for MWC offensive player. Maybe they split the
support.Nobody seems to be mourning the loss of Ben Olson these days
either. Hmmmm.Let's hope the penalty issue has been dealt with. We can
live with the execution burps, but the personaql fouls have to go.
Max doesn't deserve because his team lost to a team that they were favored
against. Max's numbers were amazing, but considering overall play, he must
learn to feel the backside rush better. 21 points off of turnovers for Tulsa.
To me that's a worse stat than the penalties.Utah deserves the
awards because they were ranked near 100 and expected to be blown out, but they
destroyed UCLA.Las Vegas Katbacker
Definitely a big win for Team Kyle but Cougs and Utes have important games this
weekend. Right now the MWC standings are the real story. Hoping for a few more
losses for TCU.
Bball, BYU has to hold an average offense to less than 55 points before anyone
on that team is entitled to any type of award.
10-2, enough said.
One more beef with the Versus and CSTV broadcasts. No play clock. I never know
how much time either team has to snap the ball.
I'm surprised he didn't list BYU #1, Utah #2 and Weber State #3. Get out and
watch some other games before you "rank" teams. Can you say HOMER?
And Harline is STILL OPEN!
You Utah and BYU fans are highly entertaining. I read your thoughts (and some
words not well thought out) every day at lunch time for a break in the monotony
of living. If laughter makes mankind live longer, I'm aiming at 120 right now.
Keep up the good work. I can't wait for lunch time tomorrow.
The entire Tulsa receiving corps is STILL WIIIDE OPEN!!!
Your only going to hit 120?I'm guessing aslong as it keeps up, I'll
be atleast around 200!
We should give max some more credit, the guy actually threw 5 td's...granted one
was to tulsa, but at least he was able to get right back on the field to pad
those stats of his...
COULD WE PLEASE GET SOME ORRIGINALITY?
Harline may still be open, but so are all of Tulsa's receivers.
After boasts of BYU's 'best' o-line ever, I'm pretty sure they are definitely
extremely overrated, with perhaps the exception of Aulai. They have absolutely
sucked the last few games, and the RBs blocking for Hall hasn't been to good
either. However, Hall, Collie, and Unga deserve praise- they are all absolutely
amazing. Bronco and Kehl need to do something about the defense- they looked
like a high school team after playing fantastic against the first two teams.
Its easy to get lots of return yards when the other team is kicking off every 2
minutes. I've yet to see an article talk about Collie's big numbers in terms of
Anonymous you are a shill. You root for both BYU and Utah depending on the
subject. Plus you are on the non-sports blogs. Get a life.
Anonymous...Harline's still open??? What has he done so far in the NFL? That's
right shut up!
BBALL...you are so typical! When other people win or get the glory, you and all
your little cougars make excuses! That's pathetic!
Yep, and he's STILL waiting for the call into the bigs.. maybe he should leave
that spot in the end zone and get a real job now.Max hall threw 2
picks and 1 fumble all which lead to scores by Tulsa, just because he had to
throw all day long and racked up a lot of yards doesn't make it good.Homer - Exactly who would you say is deserving of the top 5. USC, LSU and
Florida are definately the top 3 .. Oklahoma has beaten who?.. Wisconsin
..yeah.. barely beats a bottomw MWC team, Texas a 3 point stunner over UCF.. who
else? Duke? They broke their 22 game streak.. losing streak that is.
The MWC is always going to be a 'ok' conf until 2 things happen1. It
has at least 1 more team, if not 3 - this means more fans and $$$ to the conf.,
which is what the BCS is ALL about!!!!2. That TCU, U and the Y start
beating up these BCS conf teamsJust my 2 cents....
Harline's still open...that's because he's on the bench. I'm sure he'll make a
great car salesman someday. Maybe the Cougar secondary is still living in the
past, because they were daydreaming on Saturday. Nice effort though.
We are and allways have been the greatest team in history!IF GIVEN THE CHANCE WE
WILL BEAT EVERYONE ONCE. Maybe twice.GO CUTES.
Not three times. We would be happy with the once WE
All this talk about Harline being still open. How many times do we have to
watch that stupid play. I don't see anyone showing plays from the FIRST school
to ever break the BCS. Go Utes, and the super stars Harline and Beck are both
on the bench, and the real player Weddle is kicking butt on the chargers and he
actually plays. Maybe the cougs should get over their dream win last year and
start playing again. Oh and who lost two weeks ago to UCLA? Oh yea that is
right not the Utah Utes.
Time for ALL utah fans to realize the pro's are not college. Different game! IF
NEED BE, cougs could play this piontless game allso. Jason Buck, Shawn Knight
and a whole slew of names. Most of whom were pro before utah put even a few out
IF THAT!!If any would like to continue this I'm more than happy to
go back, relist them A L L. JUST TO SHUT YOU UP! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
! ! !
Past, you know not of what you speak. Utah was putting guys in the Pros before
Hector was a pup. BYU never even beat Utah until the 60s. Learn your history
I like your top five. Preseason rankings are a dumb idea and it defies reason
that national champion Florida shouldn't have started number 1 this year. Watch
them stomp everyone again and beat USC in the championship. Good job Utes, hope
they can build on that success.
I really think that the people who sit here and banter back and forth about BYU
or Utah being the best are classless know-nothings. I doubt any of you even
attended the school they so willingly back with mindless ranting. The article was a recap from the weekend. That's all. The season isn't over
and last season is long gone. So comments about Harline still being open...
uhh... really... he's not. and the UCLA game finished 4 days ago. There's still
a lot of football to play, and both teams have a lot to prove, period. BYU has
to show that they can be a disciplined team, not give up so many turnovers, and
have their defense show up to the game. And Utah still needs to prove that last
Saturday wasn't a fluke.As far as the MWC players of the week are
concerned... I am in the belief that they should have won their game. what good
is 600 passing yards if your team still loses. Same thing goes for a 100 yard
rushing game... that wouldn't have impressed anyone if they lost the game. It's
called perspective. And Texas Ute is right.
