Here's someone from a 3rd world country was desperate for an opportunity
and took advantage when the opportunity came. I'm happy for his parents and
siblings seeing stories like this because there is no doubt they sacrificed a
great deal. Good luck brother - can't wait to watch you on
I certainly hope that Ziggy can make it in the NFL. What a story. However, how
many Cougs players have been drafted the last few years? So, from that
standpoint only, the cards are stacked against him. I heard Mayock say the same
thing, which was simply a statement that took about 5 seconds to make, and that
was it. Putting a 5 second statement and putting in print in an article
certainly sticks out. How about some deeper research to substantitate the
statement. I've heard various ESPN announcers talk about Ziggy as well.
But, let's face it. That sentiment is coming from what the coaches are
feeding them in their pre-game production meetings. Again, I would LOVE Ziggy to
get drafted and do well in the NFL. I've just read of this type of overhype
so much over the past few years. I'll believe it more when I start reading
feedback from NFL scouts, NFL team front offices, etc.
A nice story about a young man who has come a long way. BYU will not have a
gimme if they face SDSU in the bowl game.
I am impressed by Ansah more than any other player on byu's D.Is Ziggy as good as Clowney (S Carolina) or Jordan (Oregon)? Probably not. Jason Pierre-Paul was quite raw and that is turning out well.Ziggy is a 4-3 DE and going to a 3-4 team especially the steelers would be a
waste of talent.
Does anyone know what happened to Adam Hine?
Is this the only Y-related story the DNews can publish during a bye week? I
doubt a recycled two-week old Dick Harmon column is better than nothing.
Good luck, Ziggy. From what I've seen this season, this Ute fan thinks
you're the real deal!
Ziggy's story validates my conservative views. If he can succeed in
America, we should therefore maintain the Reagan-style system of opportunity.
@worfHine has had some academic issues.
JohnInSLCGotta love the jealous whining from the kids on the hill
every time a positive article about at BYU player is published in the D-News.Ziggy's is a great story and deserves repeating over and over.If stories about Ziggy bother U so much, I'd suggest googling the
dozens of stories about Star that didn't seem to bother U.
And to think this possible 1st round pick was stuck behind a less talented
player who was starting because Bronco's system gives "tenure" to
certain players based on their time with him instead of talent. Not all players
get this preferential treatment (*see James Lark), I guess it's whether
Bronco likes you or not. If Eathyn hadn't gone down with a
season ending injury, Ziggy would still be on the bench and this story
wouldn't have happened. If Ian Dulan hadn't missed the season with a
back injury Ziggy would probably be backing him up instead of starting. Bronco
gets to look like a genius because injuries and a lack of depth left him with no
other alternative but to start him.It makes me wonder what the story
would be like if Ziggy hadn't been wasted on the bench all last year.
I don't think he will go in the 1st round but someone will take a chance on
him in rounds 4 or 5 and he will do what he has done this year and play great at
wherever he ends up.
Ziggy is a great story. He is a great player. Not sure why someone said he would
be wasted in a 3-4. You do realize the Cougars play in a 3-4? He is better
suited for a 4-3, but is a good player and I would like to see him in the NFL.
The additions at the end of the article were a little strange. Ogletree
should show a little more respect to the gift for Seniors, but I guess it is a
little lame.I also get a little tired of hearing about how close BYU is to
being undefeated. You could also say that they are one botched punt away from a
comfortable Utah win, a strange refusal from Boise to kick a 20 yard field goal
away from a pretty comfortable Boise win, and a play away from Utah State
beating the Cougars. Too much is being made of how close they were to winning,
when they were lucky to be in a few of those situations.It is unfortunate
that this D has been slapped in the face by such a poor O, but don't get
too far ahead of yourselves.
Good luck to Ziggy. Great story.Not to be missed later in the
article: Ogletree's ridiculous comments about Senior night recognition and
gift. He has rapidly become one of my least favorite BYU players. He needs to
learn a little human decency.
Ziggy looks like the real deal.Good luck to him and I would love
seeing him on the other side of the line opposite Clay Mathews.
Good luck in the draft Ziggy but also hope you're on track to graduate.
