    Why did it take a broken arm to get this guy on the field???? It's obvious he has vision and speed we have rarely seen at BYU. Just like at the QB position in regards to Nelson playing over Hill, I'm frustrated believing the better athlete is not always on the field. Come on bronco there's no room for favorites. Too much at stake to play head games. This team's two defeats were both close winnable games. Could the better athletes have been the difference? Undefeated right now would have been real fun!

    Jaamal, We're out here in the hinterlands cheering for you. You may not be able to hear us, but we're here. You haven't even got your full-physical maturity yet and you did a fantastic job. In addition, we saw the potential of another runner...Lasike. He also looked like Harvey Unga. When you add Hill with his lightening speed, that is a formidable backfield. I was amazed to see the speed of both Jaamal and Hill. As was pointed out, Hill was running away from a defensive back. That's amazing too. It's not accurate to compare Hawaii to other teams to come but It seems like there are some real possibilities.

    Good questions Aunt Lucy. BYU has a hard enough time recruiting true athletes. When they get them, they should play them if they are are ready (regardless of being underclassmen). Playing the character guys are what BYU is about, but athletes can have character as well.

    Comparison; pretty girls can still be good moral girls. I am NOT saying Bronco is purposefully practicing an imbalanced form of favoritism, but plenty, including myself think he is to hung up on playing certain types of players. Branch out Bronco, BYU needs more player diversity in talent and dare I say it, color. Play the best players if they are willing to come to BYU and conform to its' standards.

    It's painfully obvious Bronco is serious about winning being only his 5th priority. It's obviously not something he's committed to when we see clearly more talented players languishing on the bench.
