Would Nelsons career have gone better if he had stayed at BYU???Did you
mean Heaps or did you mean USU
Love Nelson's fire. He's a fun guy to watch - can't wait for the
season to start.
Can't wait for Wayne's predictable comments. Riley's
game improved over the course of last season, and I guarantee coach whit
isn't taking him for granted. And if his qb skills just aren't
enough...he still has grit. A factor other teams would have killed
to have down the stretch.
pretty sad state of affairs when Riley Nelson is #1 on the depth chart at QB.
Riley Nelson wouldn't have even made the team when Lavell was coaching.
It will be a season long remembered.
Actually, laugh if you want, but Riley reminds me a lot of Steve Young.
I couldn't agree more with Striker! USU is pathetic and we Cougars will
never consider them a real rival. "Aggie" Blue is pathetic. Go Cougars!
Riley is gonna shut up the critics!
@LindonManIf "Aggie Blue is pathetic" as you say, then why
did BYU switch to the very same color?
Great story about a kid who never gave up. Looking forward to the season and
seeing what Riley can do.
I am going to laugh when Riley Nelson gets his butt kicked this year by the
D-Lines of Notre Dame, Utah, GA Tech and even WA St when he tries one of his
drop runs that he insists on doing twenty plus times per game. His lack of arm
strength will be evident against these superior teams, and the inconsistently
performing RB's will have to pick up Riley's slack. And don't
even get me started with the awful WR's. Plus, Nelson won't have
All-American Matt Reynolds blocking defenders. BYU is in for a really, really
bad year. Mark my words...it will be comedic!
Utah State may very well beat BYU this year.
HCB63,Horrible WR's? You lost all credibility with that
HCB63I'm going to laugh when Riley Nelson finds a way to beat
the Utes at home, mark MY words. I only hope the teams you named are as
arrogant and underestimate him as much as you do. But when the cougars start
the season 3-0, the rest will take him a little more seriously. And
of course it will come to pass because I said mark my words.
Yeah...HORRIBLE WR's! How many quality WR's drop passes as
consistently as the current corps of BYU receivers? How many dropped passes that
were put in the numbers are acceptable? How many excuses for poor play must the
boosters and fans tolerate? How many TD's were lost last season because a
perfectly catchable ball was fumbled by a WR? One or two great catches a game
does not make up for the stench that is produced by such ineptness. If
mediocrity is your standard, then the BYU WR's are AWESOME!!!And for
those of you whose "credibility" I lost with my comment...I don't
care. Your opinion of me is completely irrelevant.
Somebody in Orem woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning - feeling a
little hyper-sensitive. It's not just that the receivers underachieve, or
that they drop passes once in a while, but they are HORRIBLE! Of course, why am
I responding at all? My comment is completely irrelevant to HC. Oh well...
Okay, Osgrath and HCB63, I'll take our awful WR and weak-armed QB. See
you in September.
@ Y dad,BYU has no game film of Wazzu, and Leach's "air
raid" will carve BYu up like a Xmas goose. BYu stands zero chance against
Utah and will most likely not score, maybe a field goal or two if Utah turns the
ball over? RudY Nelson will be creamed by the stacked, speedy, mean U
D-line........I suspect him having a Max Hall 2008 performance at best. BYu is
in deep trouble my friend. I hope all is well.
U-H A,Leach didn't pack a qb, offensive line and recievers in
his suitcase my friend. I LIVE in Wazzu country, and am as excited as anybody
else on the Paulouse for Leach to work his magic on the other cougs, but
there's a reason folks around here say Wazzu "cooged" it, and I
don't expect a 180 turn-around the first game of the season.BYU
stands an excellent chance against the U, I pick Riley's ability to extend
the play to be the difference in the game. That and magic.
