could it get any worse for the poor cougs? Now I have to change the spread to
28. USU wins by 28 with a one handed harvey. happy valley is crying its eyes
out about now. give me one good reasdon the cougs beat the aggies this week,
just one? didn't think so.
"Unga is the second-leading rusher in the Mountain West, even though he missed
the season-opening Oklahoma game due to a nagging hamstring muscle pull he
suffered during August camp before the season."Not to mention the
fact that he played rather sparingly in the second game against Tulane, as well.
Unga would be a huge loss for the Cougars. Hope he is able to continue to play
without a drop-off with that pinky break. You know opposing players will be
gunning for the hands. Hope he can avoid the fumbles.
I had this nagging doubt about the claim that Unga is the second leading rusher
in the Mountain West. So I looked it up. According the stats at Yahoo Sports,
Unga is not the 2nd leading rusher in yards. He is in fact number 6 with 227
yards. He is, however, second behind Asiata in rushing yards per game (75.7 to
Asiata's 82.5).Or was the DNews saying that he's second in yards for
in-conference games? I don't really know; but it would be nice if writers would
be clear which stats they are using.
You honestly think it matters which hand? Now I'm curious - why would you even
care to know that?
well take in to consideration what hand he's carrying the ball with...maybe he
cant hold it as well then if with the other. I think thats a big point....dont
critisize other people who are asking legitimate questions....your statement was
by far a lot dumber
He played almost the whole game with it broken last week and had plenty of
yards. Plus, we have a whole team, not just one player. BYU 96, USU 3.
Wait... we won't want to run up the score quite that much because it would be
unsportsmanlike. BYU 49, USU 3.
So he actually has a broken finger. Are they trying to make it sound worse than
it really is? And if so, why DesNews? Seriously...
I've had two broken fingers in the past (not at the same time, one pinkie and
one ring finger) and I played basketball with one and football, as a reciever,
with one (granted not at the NCAA level). Just tape it together, not a big deal.
they said it was a right hand, and he broke it after the game... honestly
A hamstring injury is a concern; a broken pinky is a minor inconvenience.Unga will be fine, much to the chagrin of a few BYU-haters who are
desperate for any kind of news that might help the Aggies.
It actually says he broke it the fist play of the game while blocking for tonga,
not after the game. Honestly… read the article.
Honestly people... honestly
I hope this young man in his early 20s heals well and is able to reach his full
potential in football as well as in life. I hope that he doesn't have more pain
than he can bear. I have found that pain whether physical or emotional helps us
to grow - both physically and emotionally.
He has more talent in pinkie than any other running back in this state.
Unga could score touchdowns all day long against the gaggies even with a broken
Ha ha ha ha good one!!!
As a Ute fan, I must admit I admire Unga. He is a beast. I really wanted to see
the showdown between Unga and Asiata this year...too bad Asiata's out. They both
have heart and are very talented. Anyone who has played football, and knows what
it is like to try and tackle someone like Unga who is both big and fast, knows
what I am talking about.
I agree. Unga is who is going to beat our team like a rented mule this year.
The Cougars are down-right dominant this year and will expose us like the school
girls that we are. I shutter to think of our frail feminine line
backers trying to deal with Unga. Unga will probably pause and slap across the
face them more out of annoyance than anything.
I'm more die hard than you. just look at my name. If unga didn't break it this
week, he would have broken it against the Mighty Utes. I think he'll sit
against the aggies and byu will lose by 28.
Jack Youngblood played in the NFC Championship Game and Super Bowl XIV, with a
stress fracture in left leg. He played with a broken leg. When asked how he
felt after the game, he said he felt like he played a football game on a broken
leg."I remember one time when a guy stepped on Merlin's hand with
those nylon cleats," says Youngblood. "Ripped it wide open." He came back to the
huddle holding it. I looked over, and I could see all the bones. I almost
fainted. Merlin said, 'Aw it's all right.' "He held it together and stopped
the bleeding a little bit. That was first down. He stayed out there two more
plays before we went to the sidelines." It's a Pinky FINGER...Play ball.
Re: Ute FanYou are right. I can't give you just one reason BYU
will beat USU. I can give you many reasons:1-QB Advantage. Max Hall is a
better QB and more experienced than whomever takes the field for USU. BYU's 2nd
string quarterback Riley would have been USU's starter this year. 2-RB
Advantage. Unga, Tonga and company are bigger, stronger and more experienced
than USU's backfield. 3-OL Advantage. Bigger by far than USU's defensive
line. Sure USU can try speed to get around them but Tonga will just knock any
down who get through. 4-TE's and Receivers - no contest here. Current
All American at TE and likely future All American (Jacobson) at WR. O'Neil is
probably better than anything USU has as well.Should I go on? I didn't
After all, they have more conference championships in the last 30 years than the
Honestly people! Does anyone really believe Utah State even has a shot at
winning this game? Come on People.... BYU 38USU 17The score would be higher but our 4th string players will be playing in the
Add that USU hasn't beaten BYU in Provo since the 70's and over the last 9 games
or so, BYU has beaten USU by about 18 points on average. It's a
tough way to start conference weekend for Aggie fans.Also add that
SUU scored 30 plus points on USU. Name me one upper division team that has
allowed that many points vs a lower division team in recent history, except App
State at Michigan.
1-Scott, you don't know what you are talking about. Riley is not even an option
for our system. Borel is quicker and more mobile that fits our systme better
now. Maybe the Lord told him that while on his mission!!!2-Our
backs are quicker and will make your backs look like they are stuck in cement If
we can get around your big D-Line. Our O-Line will be over matched.3-A given4-At TE yea, but we have some quickness that may
surprised you. BYU Wins, but if you have TO's, we may wake you BYU
fans up a litle.
I'm afraid Unga will break us like a...twig. No, no, like a grape. No....like
a pinky. We are in for some pain in November. I wish our team was
as good as BYU.
I'm worried about Unga. He's a beast and would have beaten Asiata head to head
regardless. Asiata plays with heart but not like Unga. I heard that our guys
revere him - even his name sounds tough. I watched the mention of him send a
shudder through some of our new guys in the locker room when they first saw him
on tape. There's a long season to go but I'd just as soon not have to play him
I am also afraid of Unga. I think BYU will dominant the Utes this year, and
probable next year as well when Unga is a senior. They are certainly to get my
vote for best team in the MWC. A worried Ute Fan.
Not only does Unga make me wet my tighty-whities just thinking about him, but
because of the likes of Hall, Pitta, Jacobson I am now wearing Depends. Less I
forget Jorgensen, Clawson, Pendleton, and Rich - I may have to jump off the
bandwagon again like I did in 2005.
As a BYU fan, these posters making lame childish remarks while posing as Ute
fans need to grow up, bring something worthwhile to the discussion or go home.
And honestly, no idea if they are BYU fans or Aggie fans making it look like BYU
fans irritate Ute fans (sadly my guess is the former).
Harvey you might as well fix your finger. This season is pretty much over now.
And BYU still has none.
