PAC-12 decides not to expand. Great news. Wonder why the Presidents made this
decision - read between the lines in Larry Scotts' statement "we have a
strong conference structure and culture of equality that we are committed to
preserve"Who do you think the wording of "culture of
equality" was about? TEXAS and the Texas Longhorn Network only. They
think the world of football revolves around the Lone Star state.
Congratulations to the PAC-12 presidents for letting Texas know they're not the
center of the universe.
I think Texas and its own network may have been one of the reasons why they
reject expansion.I personally like Pac-12 like it is today.
Congrats to Trevor Reilly. The Utes' LBs are a nasty, nasty bunch. Can't wait
to see more! Great job Coach Sitake and Coach Davis on putting a scheme in
place that forced those turnovers!
Larry Scott is an intelligent person and will make good decisions for the PAC as
a whole. He has made Utah ( as a newcomer) feel like they have the same say as
the bigger market schools and gives no preference or special treatment to
@SoCalUtahFanThere was a plan in place that would have allowed Texas
to keep its TV network and still be in the PAC-N (where 8
Congratulations to Reilly! I'm a BYU fan and read TBS which is all about BYU
recruiting. Reilly really wanted to come to BYU after his mission but he was
told there was no schollie for him at BYU. I'm assuming he's on schollie at
Utah. Another one that got away. I have a feeling that Reilly will be a great
one at Utah. Fehoko is another one that wanted a BYU offer which never came. I
think these guys were extra motivated against BYU this year and it showed on the
field. Congrats to the Utes for that game.
Great story. It's great to read about LDS players making an impact instead of
all the cry baby stories and excuses coming out of BYU.Half the Utah
team is LDS. All these BYU fans who don't even understand football and only
want to cheer for BYU, because they are LDS, are missing out on all these other
great players who have served missions and know how to play hard.Open your eyes LDS fans. All the players and fans at Utah are not
alcoholics!It's ok to cheer for great players wherever they are.Good work Trevor!
Trevor actually committed to Texas Tech prior to his mission. He comes from a
great family, with two younger brothers playing at Colorado State. My favorite
part of this article was his onion eating record! I was at that event, and it
was hilarious to watch. You could "smell" all the participants 10 feet
away! This event was actually the first Multi-Stake YM/YW event for 7 stakes (at
that tiime) in Northern San Diego County. It was held at a high school in
Oceanside, and the stands were absolutely packed. As I recall, there were 800-1K
youth participating, with mutliple records being set. It's great to watch Trevor
take advantage of his playing time. He's worked his tail off to get to this
@vesparider, I am not sure where you get your info, but Fehoko did receive an
offer from BYU, he chose Utah. @Old Jake, Who cares if Reilly is LDS
or not, your religion has nothing to do with how atheltic you are or how well
you play on the field. This is college football people, cheer for a school not
for a religion. Your comments are just as detrimental as those posting anti-LDS
I love the mental toughness and hustle of this Utah team. Trevor exemplified
these traits in the epic dismantling of BYU Saturday night. And for all of
Bronco's so called knowledge of the human mind, he cannot seam to generate the
same toughness in his players. They folded halfway through the 3rd quarter.
@Go Utes111I don't think you understand the mindset of most Utah
(State of) fans. We for sure care about Religion and want to see our LDS youth
rock the house.AND I for one am tired of watching Tattoo'd up
athletes who probably are Alcoholics as well.I want to cheer for
good ol' all american LDS kids who are playing football and setting a great
example for my kids.That is what I want to see. And I think that is
what most people in Utah want to see as well.Trevor sounds like the
type of kid and player that we can all enjoy cheering for. Keep it up Trevor!
There is a mormon playing for somebody other than BYU?
@RedWhy would you assume that Tattoo'd up = alcoholic?I
personally don't like tattoos but I would never judge people that have them to
most likely suffer from alcoholism. I honestly don't know how an
athlete could perform at that level if they weren't sober(some can). They seem
more 'finely tuned' than that. I could see them abusing other drugs but a
sedative like alcohol might slow them down and make them rather ineffective on
the field, in the classroom, and in the weight room.
vesparider:"Fehoko is another one that wanted a BYU offer which
never came."Wrong. Fehoko WAS offered a scholarship to the Y,
but they were never in his Top-5 [Utah, Utah St, Texas Tech, Hawai'i, and
Washington]. That means he did NOT want an offer from Mendenhall.
@ RedYour an arrogant piece of work. What gives you the right to judge
people that don't believe the same stuff you do?? Just because you don't like
tattoos doesn't mean they are bad people. Your the one that gives the mormans a
bad name, ever heard don't judge a book by its cover?? Your a dick!! How does
you comment even matter in this artical?? This is a story of a kid who had a
lights-out game against a poor, not very athletic BYU team. He came to utah
instead of texes tech, coaching got him here.
Wow--I guess that Austin Collie was right--when you live your life right, on and
off the field and can down an onion in a minute and a half, good things just
seem to happen to you.
Nice to have hbim on the team. What surprised me most on Saturday was Utah's
surprising depth (not necessarily at QB mind you).The team is in
good hands with this LB crew.
When I saw that Reilly was pac 12 defensive player of the week my first reaction
was, Who? I didn't realize he had such a great game. Hopefully he'll continue to
remind us who he is with great play.
Was not surprised at all to hear that Mr Reilly was the D player of the week for
the PAC 12. The kid was all over the place. I would imagine that byU was really
focused on Martinez, Blechen and many others and Reilly stepped and made great
play after great play.Nice work and I hope to see much more of the
