Congratulations to all these players. Nothing but the best to them and their
future success.I was surprised by the numbers 32-15-12 for Utah, BYU
and USU respectively. The pendulum has certainly swung to Utah over the past
decade as the premier program in the state. NFL numbers, combined 16-4 against
the instate D-1 teams. It's a good time to be a Ute.But again,
good luck to all the players.
We own byu and usu.I wonder what it feels like knowing your
program's best days are in the past.Glad I don't know!Go Utes!
pocyute,I'm surprised you're surprised at the numbers.Going undefeated twice, going to BCS bowls twice, winning BCS bowls
twice, being last team to beat Alabama in a bowl game, EARNING invitation to BCS
league....If anything I'm surpised byu and usu have any guys in
the NFL at all!LOL
The numbers are even further skewed by the author if you look closer. Notice how
6 of the 15 BYU players included on the list aren't even on NFL teams or
under any kind of contract? While Utah only has 2 and USU only 1 on their
respective lists that are in the same boat as free agents or in rookie camps and
are not likely to be signed anywhere. Why even include someone like John Beck
unless you are willing to also include someone like Chris Cooley? Both played
last year, both are free agents looking to catch on somewhere and neither is
likely to do so. There's even players like USU's Diondre Borel who was
with the Green Bay Packers for the past two years and just signed a two year
deal with the Titans and doesn't even appear on the list. Like
everything in the DN, this was put together in an effort to convince the public
that BYU is at least still #2... we know better.
Pretty good for a last place team. Losing to Utah State, who was beaten by BYU
was just one of many losses. Don't see many more NFL players on this ute
Nice report too bad it was not more well researched! It looks like Utah is the
clear with Utah State about to past the cougars.
Hey - how come byU doesn't have any QBs on the list? What happened to
@worf, I am confused by your posting? Are you saying that one of Utah's
losses last year came at the feet of BYU? If so, might want to look at their
records again?Also, are you also stating that there are not many
players on Utah's team that are NFL caliber? Hmmmm, curious as to your
expertise on this matter? Go UTES!!
oh Chris...The Aggies have owned the Utes as far as having players
"drafted" in recent years... AND we handed you an L last year to aide
you in bowling at your local alley instead of a stadium.Get ready
for 2013... we are coming!
Smack talk from an Aggie - love it!!Thanks DN for keeping us
@VegasUteI couldn't agree more. The things these aggies say
are funny to see. Seing as how Utah State beat Utah once in the past hundered
years. Because of that they think they own the state and everything in it.
Hope they get a reality check next year against the Utes.
