I concur with Coach Mendenhall on his team. They are having fun. The white
team rushed the field on the two point conversion and had a ball. This team
played great. Great Defense. Solid offense. Sloppy snaps and some dumb
penalties or it would have been very clean. Heaps didn't complete four deep
balls. Two went to Apo real deep and he would have had them except Corby Eason
took the penalty instead on both. Heaps through a bullet to Jacobsen that split
two defenders but it was just out of reach. (Cahoon will tell him to sacrifice
himself and dive I am sure.) And one another the receiver hesitated and then
couldn't catch up to the ball a step ahead of him.But the
Defense....Sweet. Taking up where they left off last year...but faster,
quicker, and do they hit. Loved it....Thanks Coach
Mendenhall...Especially for the overtime. Both QB's showed their stuff.
Looking good...Room to grow still..But looking good.
Sounds great... Looks like Heaps and his receivers need to get a little more in
touch and stay in touch with each other over the summer. I like that we have
the depth to be seeing those who think that they have the starting nod actually
have someone breathing down their necks....and no mention of injuries... that's
the best news of all. Does Sorenson have a backup at the kicking position???
Since he kicked both field goals and missed a 3rd... that looks like a question
that needs addressing. Any other kickers of note on the team???Boy... it's a great year to be a Cougar!!!
I thought it was ones against ones and twos against twos...not the first team
defense against the second team offense. Am I wrong? The articles says Nelson
scored on the first team defense.
With this article and no major injuries mentioned I think we are looking at what
is shapeing up to be a promising year. So...with that. I just want to be the
first to Congratulate our dear friend Hedgie for a very unique couple of posts
on a previous article. It was the article that the DN's "The Rock"
wrote about the BCS scandal at the Fiesta Bowl. If you haven't read the article
and Hedgie's last couple of comments you need to. They truly are inspirational.
Hedgie now has the distinction of being the first Utey to finally have the
courage to publicly admit the truth. Something that we at BYU have known since
that fateful day. In his overly obvious jealous demeanor, Hedgie acknowledges
that it was in fact BYU's 1984 HOliday Bowl and National Championship that
brought down College Footballs Holy Grail of crowning a National Championship on
New Years Day at one of it's 3 sacred shrines. The Rose, The Sugar or the
Orange Bowl...and that that glorious occasion was in fact the very catalyst for
the creation of the BCS.Congratulations Hedgie!!! We admire your
courage to speak out!!!
Seriously, that's the headline?
@DCOkay, I got the answer on that. No, Nelson did not lead the
two's against the one defense. He lead them against the two defense with the
two offense. I wanted to point that out but I try not to be too nit picky about
little mistakes. We all make them.
@pragmatistferlifeIt is if your a BYU football fan. If you don't like it
why read it and then take the extra time to comment on it. Jealousy, obsession
or are you just in a bad mood this morning?
@DC and Saltlakewatch If you had been paying attention to the two previus
articles preeceeding the scrimmage on saturday you would have had the
opportunity to twice catch Bronco saying that the no. 1 Offense would play
against the no. 2 Defense and the No. 1 Defense would be playing against the no.
2 Offense. But now you two are playing your own version of Who's on First
Were we watching the same game? No run blocking, backs getting hammered, sloppy
exicitution, several poor snaps and missed blocks. There were some good catches
but only one run worth remembering, and the TDs were mostly blown coverages. All
in all about par for a spring game.
"Were we watching the same game? No run blocking, backs getting hammered,

ever report anything less than perfection for anything related to BYU.
@Where's StocktonSince we are all on the same side here I point this
out only to clarify what I watched. This is a quote from the article you asked
if I was paying attention to:Quote from day before the game: "The
Blue team features the first-team offense and the second-team defense."Hence the Blue #1 offense played the White #1(first string) defense.Hope that clarifies it for you.
Does anyone really think the Cougars can hang with the likes of Texas or TCU?Look at the history of Cougar football. The team in Provo never wins
big games. The only reason Oklahoma turned out in their favor last season is
because Urban Meyer designed the game plan for Bronco. The bowl winning
percentage is 25 percent or so.The Cougs might beat Idaho, and who
knows maybe even New Mexico St., but it's going to be a rough year against any
real football programs.It's too bad the WAC ended up not inviting
the team in Provo after all.
"Does anyone really think the Cougars can hang with the likes of Texas or
TCU?Look at the history of Cougar football."Okay,
let's look at the history of Cougar football. Here's what I see: BYU vs Texas
overall record is 2-0 (BYU has 2 wins, Texas has 0). I like that history.You are so full of hate against BYU that the rest of your comment
doesn't even deserve a response.
Yep you are wrong it was the 2 Offense against the 1 Defense and visa versa. So
the take away is depth, depth, depth and as an "Independent" you will
need all the quality players at "player ready speed " or " All
hands on deck " so to speak
