Wow, the headline should have been Max Hall's quote that Riley should have
been the starter in the first place. Max is right. Too bad that the coaches
and fans bought into the media hype surrounding a certain highly-recruited
They are both chiseled out of pure awesome. Both should never loose another
Ernest,They never will lose another game. Yes folks, they are both
Even though Max Hall hates Utah and everyone who graduated from there, I still
love him. What's not to love? Awesome and classy.
Even though Max Hall stated on national television that he "hates Utah, and
Utah's fans", I still love him. Truly, he really is sculpted out of
Max who? Hall, did you say?Oh, yes, I remember him. The guy whose
Uncle Danny got him a season in Arizona as - what was it? Water boy?
We'll just have to wait to see if he can make better throws this fall.
Hoping for the best.
"Max is almost like a coach. They should pay him for being out here,"
Nelson joked. is this against some NCAA policy?
7 comments mostly from Ute "Fans" - that of course have moved on to
better things. Isn't there an article on the Utes spring practice
somewhere? This is classic "little brother behaivor" just can't let
go of "ALL THINGS BYU" Ute Fans Please move on.... remember your better
then us now.. your in a BCS conf.
Y Ask Y,Water boy? That's farther than you'll get.
Oh goody. Max is back to spread his high class hate to the rest of the team. I
hope the rest of the team has the class and wisdom to ignore his garbage. But
then, I remember a talk by one of last years players at my ward saying how much
better people are at BYU than at other places. (never mind that he had never
lived outside of Utah beyond his mission) I can only assume the players are
repeating the drivel that is coming down from above. These guys need to be
talked to about how the things they say can and always will be held against the
rest of the church and need to learn to think before they talk.
I think it's really cool that Wendy's gave Max some extra time off to
go and visit his Alma Matter.
Alaska Coug, Little paranoid there? You know nobody is tougher on the Y
than their own fans. Just ask Bronco and Jake Heaps.
Best decision Nelson ever made was to leave usu for BYU. He'll actually
have a winning record playing football and graduate from a top notch school.
Glad BYU has him now. He's a proven leader.
""He should have been the starter in the first place, in my
opinion," Hall told the Deseret News on BYU's Alumni Day, the final day
of spring drills. "He overcame the adversity that came with not being the
starter. He stuck in there and kept working hard and good things happened for
him. He deserves it. He's a great kid, a hard worker, and he's a
competitor. If anything, he'll compete and give it everything he has.
That's what I like about him."Wow, Max tell us what you
really think! Bronco, are you listening to Max? read his comments in the
article, I think you have your next QB coach standing on the sidelines. Take
those duties away from Doman and let him focus entirely on the offense.
@diggity"Oh goody. Max is back to spread his high class hate to the
rest of the team. I hope the rest of the team has the class and wisdom to ignore
his garbage."On the contrary, judging by the way BYU just quit,
laid down and rolled over for Utah in last year's game and the way that
Utah kept their foot on the gas and never let up right to the final gun
indicates that BYU doesn't hate Utah even an iota as much as Utah hates the
Cougars. Judging by the effort and energy utah put into the game, you would have
thought that game was Utah's BCS Bowl game. In contrast BYU looked like
they were playing in their spring game.Max was 2-1 vs the Utes and
since he left we're 0-2. I would say our players need a little more
"Maxy" when they play the utes, not less.
Looks as if Max is smart enough to say things Bronco would like. Whatever
happened to quarterbacks having to throw. Only at BYU under Bronco do we select
a starting quarterback based on his off the field performance. Riley
can't throw, he panics easily, he cause discention on the team. I wish he
had stayed at USU.
Sounds like Riley is serious about improving his game, I like that he seeks the
advice of Max Hall. BYU is in good hands with a leader like Riley at the QB
position. He will see to it that they (he and the recievers,TE,RBs,etc) get
together and work hard during the spring and summer when coaches cant be around.
Wayne, please define your word, "discention." It's not in the
American Heritage Dictionary, its not in Merriam Websters, it's not even at
Dictionary.com. Googling it got me nothing. On the other hand, when
it comes to dissension, you certainly are able to hold your own. As Voltaire
might have said, "I'll defend to the death your right to say it,"
but that still doesn't make it accurate. As I recall, while Jake was in
charge, there was dissension on the team, players - whether rightly or wrongly -
were given half-hearted effort, they quit against Utah. Then Riley came in to
mop up against USU and suddenly the entire was pulling together. Nobody denies
that Jake has a stronger arm, but Jake did not provide half the leadership that
Riley did, and non of Riley's intangibles. Whether Riley
survives this season uninjured - well, we'll just have to see. But he is
the logical choice to start the season. Not only was Jake completely
ineffective, but he quit. I just cannot understand why you are so devoted to
I would love an article once a week quoting Max. Not so much because he had
anything to say but because of the way Ute fans still revere him. All we needed
was a reprise of "magic happens" and I think they would have blown fuses
up on the hill. Wayne? Just win, baby, win. Something Riley does.
I would LOVE to see BYU ask Max Hall to be the Quarterback Coach! Perfect match
for a great player who would become a first rate coach. Come on Brono: make it
I'm a BYU fan, honestly, and I don't give two owl's
"rooti-toots" what Max Hall believes. Max Hall was the most over-rated
QB at BYU. Remember the six picks he threw at Utah? Yikes...so I'm
supposed to be excited about Hall's comments? I'm not excited about
Nelson, because he folds in big games, just like Hall did. So, for the first
time in years, I did not buy season tickets...I can't pay money to watch
Nelson chuck the ball up for grabs when "real" pressure hits!Not a fan of either one.
I love it!Max Hall and Riley Nelson are cut from the same cloth.
Neither is a prototypical quarterback yet they win. They are junkyard dogs. Max
is much better at throwing, Riley much better at running, though both would pick
a fight with a pittbull, only armed with a broken bottle. I know, rough metaphor
but gotta love that junkyard dog in'm.I hope that Riley
develops a better throw and delivery. If he can do that his game will double,
yardage will triple and the wins improve. Great year last year, much better
potential this year.Classic picture that should hang in the football
field house for generations to come: Two junkyard dogs!!!Go BYU!
"Max is almost like a coach. They should pay him for being out
here..."Sounds like a great idea to me! Why not make it
official? Max Hall would make an excellent QB coach and BYU is in need of one.
And its not like Max has an NFL career holding him back.
I surely do love Max. His honest assmement of utah and its fans will forever
endear him to me. I like a guy that will tell the truth regardless of the
criticism he'll surely receive.Keep it up Max, they hate you
because they know its all true.
Serious byu fans- max hall is "awesome" and "righteous"? Read
President Uchdorf's conference talk October 2010:Perhaps there is no better
laboratory to observe the sin of pride than the world of sports. I have always
loved participating in and attending sporting events. But I confess there are
times when the lack of civility in sports is embarrassing. How is it that
normally kind and compassionate human beings can be so intolerant and filled
with hatred toward an opposing team and its fans? I have watched sports fans
vilify and demonize their rivals. They look for any flaw and magnify it. They
justify their hatred with broad generalizations and apply them to everyone
associated with the other team. When ill fortune afflicts their rival, they
rejoice.I want him as my son's hero....not!
LOL at cougie fan's....One say's utah played like it was a BCS game
against the Y. Funny I know you would be confused because Utah actually plays in
BCS games. However we were playing the Y so there is no possible way it could
have been a BCS game.Another cougie says Riely came in and mopped up
Utah St. and the team rallied for him. No Kidding, it was Utah St. not Utah.
What did Riely do when he came in for Jake against Utah? Nothing Utah actually
has a defense. Against an above average defense Riely will always struggle where
Jake actually has the tools to do something. Your blind or don't know much
about football if you can't see that.
2BCSWINSAnd yet the mighty, vaunted, BCS, conference of champions
Utah defense... failed to show up against the worst road team in all of college
football. Explains a lot of things really. And CWEB,
hope you enjoy sitting outside the stadium this season. Time will tell if you
made the right choice, but if you end up wrong, it'll be in spades. You
think Riley's best days are behind him, and they weren't all that
much. I'm banking that he'll be enough better this year to turn some
heads early, including at RES. But you might be able to get into the stadium in
Max Hall would be a footnote in BYU football if ute fans would stop confirming
Hall's most inflammatory quote.
@Big Cougar.Yes Max was 2-1 against Utah, but he did not play well
in any of those games. The two wins were home games. The first one came down to
a low scoring 4th and 18 hail mary in the last minute The second was the
overtime win where a Senior in Max Hall had horrible stats and beat a freshman
in Jordan Wynn. Hall was to worried about hating Utah than playing well in that
game. The one loss for Hall was when Utah blew out the Cougars and Hall threw 6
INTs and fumbled. He seemed to think that someone threw beverages on his family
that night. It may have happened, but I was always bothered that the media just
took in on face value.
The greatest thing about Max, other than his winning record against utah, is
that he is still in their heads after 2 1/2 years and probably always will be.
Just like the great Austin Collie is still in their heads. These two guys
inspired utah "fans" to make 1000's of t-shirts about them and the
things they have to say. utah "fans" like to criticize BYU for slogans
but BYU has never made a t-shirt about an opposing player. LOL!
