This is getting better and better. Can't wait to see a 5-7 tds football team.
It's always good to beat Chris B. and hedgehog to the punch - they'll be chiming
in shortly so no worries.Well - I guess this move says something
about the running back situation in Provo. As in - pretty good competition.Good luck anyways to Te'o.
Nothing like playing in front of your home town. Good luck to him.
I love it when someone transfers somewhere and they will get to play their old
team. Best of luck to this young man in his pursuits.
ahh, the smell of a rotting football program
Please, no one acknowledge the first post on this story, at 3:29 pm. Please,
please, please, just let it go.
Wow, he is going to be pushing 30 by the time his final year of eligibility
Best of luck to Malosi. Hopefully the recent events with the two Te'o boys and
Harvey won't damage the Polynesian pipeline.
Probably a good move for Malosi since he probably would not have seen much, if
any, playing time at BYU. Wish him the best of luck with the Warriors.
Big_Ben that's a good point, I think it's good for both the player and the
program he left when they can play each other. The Cougars are loaded at rb,
good luck to Te'o in Hawaii.
you don't transfer to a WAC school unless it's Boise State...and do so with any
remnant of hope to make it to the NFL. hey...play your heart out
kid. you're off the football map...but back home.
Te'o has had a tough time making up his mind. This will make more room for
backs to handle the ball who are passionate about Cougar football. Cougs will
be fine without him, but best wishes to Te'o.
Can someone tell me what TDS stands for?
The writing was already on the wall and Teo was moving to linebacker to make the
field in Provo. I'm sure that move, combined with a desire to play at home, and
a feeling that he wasn't getting a fair shot combined to get him into the
Warriors program. I think Hawai'i is getting a good pick up.
This sounds like a good move for Teo. He would have had a lot more competetion
at B.Y.U. than where he is going. Hope he does well.
@Old GreggTDS is an acronym meaning "Team Down South" - which refers
to the Ohio State University and has its origins decades ago with the
Michigan/Ohio State football rivalry. The likes of "Chris B" and "hedgehog" and
their ilk think they invented it - I say we don't give them the "prestige" of
being the TUN as that would be reserved for the much more prestigious Michigan
Yes what does tds stand for? Isn't The university of Utah in Provo?
TDS refers to "team dowm south". Urban myer was afraid to say the name BYU so
he came up with an acronym. Many Ute fans have the same phobia and use the same
reference believing that if they say the name BYU that they will invite a boogey
man into their dreams. Kind of childish to me, but if helps them sleep at
night, good for them.
The guy was going to try and play linebacker...this won't hurt the RBs at all...
BYU is TDS? That sounds like a failed attempt at a put-down to a
touchdown-happy football program.
TDS - Team Down South
I wish Teo well. If I were from Hawaii it would be hard to leave. I don't blame
them a bit. GO COUGARS! Cougars 61- Utes 10 (2010 Prediction)
TDS....shouldn't that be "Terror Down South"?You know,
seeing as how we've beat the yewties 3 out of the last 4 years and all....
Good move for Te'o. I lived in Hawaii and know how passionate the Hawaiians are
for their own backyard. He will do well there and BYU has a fine group of RBs
to match up with Asiata & company.I attended BYU but graduated from
the U of U and love both schools. Too bad we have the likes of Chris B and
hedgehog to spoil a civil discourse with their inane and negative comments.
Best solution? Just ignore them. Maybe they will go away when they discover
they have no credibility with thoughtful posters.
If I had a better shot to play running back at 5'10", and my last name was
Te'o...Hawaii's Beaches...?Utah's cold winters...?Hawaii's Beaches...?Utah's cold winters...?Hawaii's
Beaches...?Utah's cold winters...?Beaches......Looks like a win-win situation...
"Can someone tell me what TDS stands for? "TD is short for
Touchdown, and TDS is the plural form, as in the phrase "The Cougars score LOTS
It seems that whenever a Utah coach takes either a promotion at another school,
or a lateral transfer with a school in an AQ conference, we hear zoobies
invoking the rats and sinking ship analogy. So too will it be referenced should
a Ute player decide to pass up his Senior year in order to enter the NFL
draft.While tdS coaches, who never get offers to coach anywhere
else, have far fewer turnover conditions, this past week we have seen one coach
retire, and another player transfer. All during the summer before a rebuilding
year. Yet it would appear as though NOW, the zoobs have opted to couch that
sea-story.Hmmm. Must have something to do with the One-Way streets
zoobies tend to live on.
Naval Vet | 6:10 p.m.Yawnnnnnn...
Naval Vet is right on the money.
@Naval VetBYU coaches don't get offers to coach anywhere? You are
showing your ignorance if you really believe that. BYU coaches have always
stuck around and coaching has rarely been an issue at BYU. Losing
Coach Lamb is too bad but the guy is retiring. Good for him but not worried
about it who replaces him. As far as losing Malosi, I wish him
well. However, BYU is stacked with talent (not experience) at LB and RB.
Losing Harvey was a much bigger loss if you want comparisons. I am alot more
concerned about our D-line and QB position.
@ JTP: You forgot to add Naval Vet and Conference of Champions
It's better to cheer for TDS then the TUN(a) in North East Salt Lake.
Austin Coug:"BYU coaches don't get offers to coach anywhere? You are
showing your ignorance if you really believe that."Okay then, who on
bronKo's staff was either lured away, or declined an offer for either a position
promotion or a lateral jab at an AQ school?
ConferenceofChampions | 6:57 p.m. July 26, 2010 Naval Vet is right on the
money.---LOL... So Naval, Philly and Conference all agree with
himself.I expect Chris B and Uteology to agree with you, since you
all are the same person...Bring something new to the discussion, eh?
"Busted" Buster:YOU'RE the one who's been busted using multiple
handles; not me. Sad, desperate zoob.
@Tom in CA"TDS" works because Utah used it first in the state.
"TUN" doesn't work because you would be copying Utah. Yes, Urban brought it
from Ohio St., but it is ours and NOT the tds.Good luck with that .
@RepresentBlueI think we need to change "tds." Urban brought that
with him but at the time Utah and the tds were in the same conference. With that said, I propose we change the "tds" to "mmtds." It stands
for "mid-major team down south." Perhaps it's too much of a mouthful and a bit
redundant? Maybe it's like Coca-Cola moving away from the "original." Given
more thought, we need to stay with the original "tds." TDS . . .It
truly says enough . . .
NavalYour body of work speaks for itself.Busted Naval,
Philly Ute, Conference of Chanpions, Hedgehog, Chris B...It's like,
your world of reality is the Deseret News.If a coach is called and
tells the team he isn't interested, does he call the papers and tell them?If it doesn't get in the paper, it didn't happen? Or do all the coaches
talk to you about their offers before they make a decision?It only
gets to the papers after the coach expresses interest.Now, if you
are arguing that Utah coaches have expressed an interest to leave, then stay...
or leave... vs. BYU coaches not expressing interest in leaving a team that has
been a top 25 team 4 years straight, I concede.I like that you threw
in the AQ, because that takes eliminates coaches leaving for powerhouse
universities like Utah State and UNLV.I do believe that leaves Urban
hitting the road after two years, and Kyle being the only one interested in
leaving the U for Tennessee (after three other coaches turned it down).If there are more, please do the research and get back to me...That would be greaaaaat...
NavalVET""Sad, desperate zoob."Serious, more name calling?Have I already "yawned" at your insistence to post the same schoolyard
posts over and over?That's right, I alread did...Good.
This info was released to the media at least a week ago. It's old news.
Hawaii is getting a real good athlete in Malosi Te'o. If you've never seen his
YouTube highlights you should. He would have been a huge asset to the Cougars
running back arsenal, he'll tear WAC defenses up. Hawaii might actually start to
run the football now with this guy up there. I don't know if putting
Te'o at linebacker was the best idea. He should have been kept at running back,
and had the speed to at least play safety, maybe even corner. But I wish him the
best. He would have been another nice player for BYU, but he'll be a star at
I am fine with being called "TDS". It was originally used by Michigan, who use
it to refer to the superior The Ohio State University. So by the Utes using it
to refer to BYU, they are just admitting that BYU is superior. Thank you, Ute
fans. And thanks to Urban Meyer for starting it.
Best wishes to Te'o. He has moved around, hopefully it wil be home sweet home
for him. Dear Deseret News, please adhere to your standards as clearly
indicated above. You have allowed the haters through whose only intention is to
bash, degrade and offend. Some of these comments are clearly off topic and make
it painful reading. To the the haters: try to love not hate, funnel your
passion to support your team and bring sports to a higher standard. Thank you!
TDS = Totally Dominant Studs.
I don't care if the yewts refer to BYU as TDS.. In fact, I consider the yewts
so meaningless that I don't really pay attention to anything they say. Their
comments are just drone.. white noise. So back to the article.. I'm
happy for T'eo. He'll fit in well at Hawaii and probably have more success there
than the yewts will have in the PAC-whatever.
Buster:"It's like, your world of reality is the Deseret News.""I expect Chris B and Uteology to agree with you, since you all are the
same person..."It's sad, isn't it? I actually don't feel bad for
them. This/these is/are the person/people who have to wake up every morning and
think "Hum, what horrible, awful things can I write anonymously on a blog
today?" "I can't sleep, let me see what new article posted and let me post my
same garbage again, but in a different way."It's annoying, but
comical to watch men act like they are 2 again.That said, Hawai'i is
a great place for school and life! Enjoy being back with your Ohana!
Claws....I too, think Malosi can be an excellent back for Hawaii.
But to even whisper that he could play corner is a hallucination. Safety is even
a stretch.Fast to you and me is different that 'defensive back fast'
in college football.With that said; Best Wishes and Good Luck
Malosi, take care of yourself and your family.
Shoot, I always thought that TDS stood for "Touch DownS" and that they just left
the "U" (for "University") off to keep the acronym shorter.
TDS? I can live with that.SNOT? Now there is an acronym for the Yoots!
He sounds dang good. Why did the byu let him go? We need those awesome
players and he sould have gone to byu from high school, not from UNLV.
What is it with all the urbinites and this TDS. Get over it I keep hearing about
how great it is to be invited to the pac whatever but here you are ripping on
BYU for what. Are you bored? Just get a life and move on (chris b, uteology,
navel-lint and hedge-hog. It goes both ways fans from BYU and Utah need to find
a new hobby. I can and always have been able to root for both teams (BYU first)
until they play each other and this will not change. Good luck to teo and
hope for the best for both schools
for what it is worth The University of Utah was a stepping stone for Mr Meyer,
He brought attitude and excitement to a also rand team. Good for them. Utah fan
is like Sacramento kings fan while they were on a role 4 or 5 good years and all
of the sudden you are the sexy pick. The problem is that bandwagon fans tend to
be very annoying do you remember the cow bells those idiots brought to the play
offs. TDS = Cowbells you know the reason Urban Meyer's bag of crude works on
these kids is because it is at that level. I remember as a player getting riled
by a good speech or thinking that a rival was the enemy. I'm glad I grew out of
that phase and I can't get to excited about a parlor trick to make one game more
important than another. Way to go Urban Utah is worse because you were there.
Good luck Malosi I think you made a good choice. Faith, Family, Football.
@Old GreggTDS = Ohio State
Good luck to Malosi at Hawaii. He was buried on the depth chart at running back
and apparently didn't want to make the switch to linebacker. I wish
him well in his return back home.
Who's next on the depth chart at RB? the backup kicker? the tuba player? or the
Those that are calling for civil discussion are right: grow up, people. I'm an
avid BYU fan; I bleed blue. I may joke with a Ute fan here or there occasionally
(like telling someone wearing a "U" shirt or cap in the grocery store that it
would look better in blue), but we both laugh and realize it's all in good
fun.But some of you - and mostly it's "U", if you catch my drift -
that are just downright mean-spirited, childish, and downright hateful. Knock it
off. What's gained by speaking mean and nasty things about a rival team, its
players, or coaches? Is it a self-esteem issue with you? Is that it? You have to
tear others down - viciously - in order to feel better about yourself? Again,
grow up. Get some some help if you need it. Just learn to play nice.That said, the kid can play where he wants; he felt he wasn't getting the shot
he wanted at the Y, so he left for greener pastures. Good for him; you do what
you gotta do. But theere's no lack of talent to fill the need.
dferg nobody bleeds blue, blood is red. just like U.
Ya know.... Those fans that think the conversation between the yewts and the
Cougs have gotten out of hand need to go and find something else to be in charge
of.... One always has a choice when they read these comments.... You
can comment or you cannot comment... I'll make a deal with you, you don't try
and control what I do, and I won't try to control what you do.Folks
like you think "tough commenting" Coug Fans give BYU a bad name, I think folks
that continuously try to control what people say (if they are a BYU fan) give
BYU a bad name.... Get off our backs, I get off yours.
both BYU and Utah are average programs. Utah will find out the hard way when
they join the pac 10. Prediction 7-5
Re: sports fanTrue, but people who bleed DIE!When blood
is where it is supposed to be (FYI in your veins and arteries) it is BLUE. It
only turns red when you bleed and it is exposed to oxygen.so
