Congratulations are in order. These two players truly exemplify BYU football.
Namely, not much talent, but a lot of heart. Also, I hear their firesides
aren't too bad either.
@otisObviously you have no clue about what constitutes talent, not
to mention both of these players would be the #1 player at their positions if
they played for utah as well.But I thought only whittingham was
capable of taking lower rated recruits and making them into legit players? How
come there aren't any ute's mentioned in this article. There are certainly
plenty of 2 star recruits on the utah roster.
Otis Spurlock:Good points, but there are other similarities for
those athletes that exemplify cougar football as well. Nobody in the Pac-10,
Big 12, BigTen, or Big East wanted them either.
Duckhunter:"...I thought only whittingham was capable of taking
lower rated recruits and making them into legit players? How come there aren't
any ute's mentioned in this article. There are certainly plenty of 2 star
recruits on the utah roster."The Utes don't have as many 2-star
athletes on our roster as the cougars do. And, since the Y has more 2-star
athletes to go around, and fewer 3- and 4-star athletes to hold down the 1st and
2nd teams, they'll have more opportunity to play, and thus, more will make the
prestigious All 2-star team. But fear not. Derrick Shelby was a 2-star, and
he's currently in Indianapolis at the NFL Combine. I doubt Nelson will be there
next season.I also doubt either 2-star cougar could have unseated
our 1s or 2s at the QB and WR slots, but I'm sure that was a fun factless,
frantic and emotional dream for you to fantasize about.
It figures an article about BYU football and the UTES 2 biggest trolls have
to open up with smart alec comments both of you need to grow up, I doubt if
either of you could even catch a football, it seems that all you guys do
is go on the d news threads and spout hatred for the mormon church and
BYU sports, very childish
moderateinmagna:"...it seems that all you guys do is go on the
d news threads and spout hatred for the mormon church and BYU sports..."Another strawman. How coug-ish of you. Please cut-&-paste the
anti-Mormon comment of Otis or myself from anywhere on this page. Or from ANY
page for that matter.Quit being such a victim. You have not been
persecuted. And ESPECIALLY not by me. I happen to BE a Mormon, so drop the
weak-kneed, picked-on, martyr complex.
And once again, Otis and Vet epitomize the jealous BYU-obsessed Utah trolls. Why
don't you to get a life a stop obsessing about a team you pretend isn't even
Riley and Cody are two of the main reasons BYU was a Top 25 team last season.
Snack PAC:I can assure you that neither Otis nor I are envious that
the Utes not a mid-majorey, WAC-ish, never been BCS-Bowling, postseason-inept
school that no AQ conference wanted. We're actually quite pleased with our
Fiesta and Sugar Bowl trophies, overall postseason record and bowl tie-ins, and
current Pac-12 membership.We're also not jealous that we hadn't lost
7 of the last 10.Too bad you can't say the same.
TrueBlue:I thought that the 2 main reasons the Y finished ranked was
(1) because USC was ineligible for recognition in that poll, and (2) because
their overall mid-majorey, WAC-lite schedule afforded them enough wins to offset
the fact that they had no real "quality" wins to get their team
Congratulations of Riley and Cody. You are fun to watch! (One of my favorite
moments this past season was Nelson high fiving the official. Too funny). Also ... super excited for football to start again!
Naval VetHow much time do you estimate you spend reading and
commenting on BYU sports articles? It seems like A LOT -- especially since you
claim not to like them. Weird!
Counter Intelligence:What a frantic and emotional way of saying that
you could NOT cut-&-paste ANY anti-Mormon remarks from either Otis or I, and
that moderateinmagna WAS out of line for introducting religion and his own
personal persecution complex into a sports thread. And YOU'RE calling ME
passive-aggressive? Typical cougar hypocrisy.
