He's a tough player and a good lookin' kid. It's always horrible to see
Unfortunate news. For him to work so hard and miss out on his senior year makes
me feel for him. I hope he can find a way to benefit the team as well as
himself through his example and leadership. If we beat the Utes, I want them to
be at full strength. Best wishes to Asiata.
What? the dominant, giant killer, NFL bound, Brian Johnson, got cut from the
UFL? Simply unbelievable, where to I file my protest?
They could change the name from "The Asiata Package" to the "Runnin' Ute." What
do you think?
This is the first I have heard of this! This is ridiculous! Maybe he can get
picked up in the nfl next season, or try the Canadian Football League, I mean,
it is still football...As for Asiata, I wish for the best. I am a
huge Utah fan, and I am saddened to hear this. Good luck, and hopefully you
continue to play football at the next level.
I Hear John Beck is taking protests. If you really want you can sent your
protests to Max Halls therapist, he is having trouble keeping the ball out of
the defense's hands and a protest about brian johnson might be just what he
It wasn't that he wasn't doing well, it is that the team hired on an ex-NFL qb
which I am assuming has to do with the fact that the offensive coordinator that
they hired only works with NFL offenses. Spread offense QB's struggle in a pro
offense. One day the pro's will pick up the better offense, until then we are
stuck with the archaic offense.
If he chooses can probably get a sixth year. I've read several posts claiming
there is no chance at this, but Whittingham said it is a possibility, as did a
friend of mine who works in the athletic department at the U. If Asiata wants to
play in the NFL he will need another year in college.
I say we call it the widel-cat!
And who was the MWC offensive player of the year on the 13-0 Sugar Bowl champion
team? Hmmmm... was it Maxie Pad? no..... maybe Pitta? no.... oh I remember, It
was Brian Johnson, Imagine that.
have more conf. championships than Utah in the last 30 years!! HA HA HA HA HA
The United Football League released Brian Johnson? He couldn't even make it in
THAT league? That league is several notches BELOW Canadian football and just
barely better than JC football. Oh my, how embarrassing. Neither BCS busting QB
for the utes is having success after getting out of their tricked up college
system. What a shocker.
He is smiling so big in his photo because I made him some cookies.
So what? Not sure what your point is. The Utes (and Cougars) are in the
business of winning college football games, and not making it at the NFL level
does not diminish the accomplishments these guys had at the college level.
I am sorry for Matt's bad luck. He is a good running back and a leader. Perhaps
he will get another year. In any case, in my book he is a winner.
I hope you don't look as dumb as you sound. Brian Johnson is a class act. Many
outstanding college players don't hook on with a team on their first try. Maybe
his future is in some other endeavor. Show a little class yourself if you can.
about hateful Cougar fan(s) taking shots at Brian Johnson, it's about an
outstanding student athlete who blew out his ACL and lost his senior season.My heart goes out to Matt. I hope he is granted a 6th year so his
college career can be extended. Tough break Matt, you're a class act.
That was one of the most classless comments I've seen on here. Where is the
zoobie troll that keeps track of fans commenting on the wrong articles?Brian Johnson may not be an NFL quarterback but he was a great college qb and
is an outstanding young man. My bet is that Brian get's his chance yet.Matt, I hope you work hard to get your senior year back. Good luck!!
How in the world would you know how many notches below any of these leagues are?
Have you played in the NFL, CFL, JC, the new league (which has not even started
yet)...etc etc etc.. U have ZERO credibility....
The Utes QB coach, it would be a great opportunity to stay around the team and
assist the future QBs of this school to perform
The Shak kid is as good as Asiata. What's the big problem. An average running
back is an average running back. Throw anyone in there.
"U have ZERO credibility...."So do your former utah QB's Alex and
BJ. I'm sure the 49ers are just so freakin happy they wasted a #1 pick on Alex.
Zoobie troll at your service! I agree, lame comment by LV Coug, but I think
there have been enough eweties commenting on that already. I don't think Hall
will be NFL bound either and I expect a bevy of comments similar to LV Cougs in
reverse on BYU boards next year (probably from people currently criticizing LV
on this board). I think the next level smack is stupid, especially
since but both Hall and Johnson are great college QBs. Beck and Smith were
great college QB's who may never do anything in the NFL besides ride the pine.
What happens after college doesn't diminish their accomplishments during
college. Tough break on Asiata, but Wide is a legit RB and Utah
will use the bye week to adjust. CSU is tougher than they have been in years so
hopefully Utah is prepared next week. I expect a similar score as the BYU game
with Utah scoring one fewer TD as cain irons out more of the wrinkles.Go Cougars!
