Good! Finally someone else gets to play who, by the way, is also a good
character guy who doesn't deserve to sit any less than Riley does. All I
hear about is what a great character guy Riley Nelson is. James is just as great
of a person as Riley is.
If Lark does well, it will not reflect well on Doman. Best of luck Lark, go get
Dollar to a donut Doman and Bronco keep it on the ground 75% of the time. NO
WAY they can risk Lark, in the final game of the year to throw for 500 yards,
even against inferior competition like New Mexico State. After the appalling
fiasco at QB this year, there's simply no way they'd risk letting Lark
look like the QB who could have (and should have) been inserted into the
starting lineup 9 games ago... Count me as one of the LEGION numbers of
old-time faithful BYU fans who's been disgusted at the irrational bromance
between Bronco, Doman, and an inferior starting quarterback. With the
once-in-a-generation defense that BYU had this year, this season could have been
special had we not relied on a QB whose every weak gimpy pass was an
interception waiting to happen. What a waste of a year. What a waste of an
opportunity. Andy Reid-- BYU needs you!
I just watched two BYU/Utah rivalry games when Doman was QB. Now I know where
Nelson got the rediculous idea that the QB draw ought to be the #1 play. Doman
did it far too often and even fumbled in key drives. BYU should have run away
with the games, but squeaked out the wins in spite of the Doman game plan.
Please, Lark; avoid the QB draw like the plague. It is not your best option.
Nelson mistakenly believed in Doman. Go for choices #2-4 in your option plays
where QB draw is #1.
Against a 1-win team, we have to expect a big game from Lark. And when he has
that big game, it won't tell us anymore about whether he should have been a
starter sooner. This game is akin to Idaho-hardly a measuring stick for QB
Re: Teddy BearI don't disagree, but if anything I am just happy
to finally see someone else, anyone else, get to play QB besides Riley Nelson.
It will just be a relief to see someone else out there.

Light 'em kid! You sure have paid your dues. I'll be rooting for you
even though I'm a Ute fan.
I'm not going to hold my breath on this one. I'll wait until I
actually see Lark take the field for the first snap. Then I will believe that he
is going to start this game.
Doesn't sound like Nelson is "Probable" to start anymore, as Bronco
previously stated. That is good. Glad to hear there may be a few powers that can
push Bronco around a bit. It would be interesting to know if that
"power" comes from fan fire or leaders in higher places. Go James .. and
good luck! We'll pull for you, even with all the poor coaching and
direction of this Bronco era.
It's a miracle! As much as this makes sense to do, I am still surprised
Lark will FINALLY get to play. I hope Lark does really well and leaves the
program with something to hang his hat on. Obviously BYU will win, but I want
Lark to put up big numbers. However, even against New Mexico State, if Lark has
a sweet stat line, it won't help Doman's sentiment with many a Cougar
fan. If Lark would have had a shot in a meaningful game in the last year or two,
then there would be as Bronco always says, a "reference point" to go by.
Here's to Lark playing at a higher level of consistency. No, but seriously,
best wishes from this Ute fan Mr Lark.
Good for you, James! It may indeed be too little too late, but light it up!Some of our loyal fans need desperate relief! They've gone from
anger, through bitter, past paranoia.
Ok, Cougars, here it is--I predict a WIN for the Y. Yes, because you are
actually starting a QB that IS a QB. And, of course, New Mexico is hardly the U.
So, never say I don't say anything positive about bYu. The only thing that
might create a problem is that you still don't have an OC.
"Offensive coordinator Brandon Doman said the game plan won't change
much with Lark under center."Oh great, does this mean we're
going to ask him to run the ball 20 times?
Lark may struggle with the Riley doman offensive we stole from the 1973 Texas
longhorns. Let's send this offense and Doman to grad school with grits.
What once was a great quarterback factory has turned into a quarterback
exterminator.Good Luck Lark, its to bad we couldn't have
watched you play somewhere else the past four years.Band of Aid
Better late, than never; regardless, it's nice to see James get a chance to
start a game.
I'm looking forward to seeing Lark start. He deserves it. And I hope he
throws for three touchdowns!
Playing the two worst teams in college football over the last three weeks,
Bronco could probably start his mother and still win. Big deal.
Get ready for some nicely thrown balls and accurate passes. I don't know if
we can handle it.
Go Red,Just when I was about to comment on how something positive like
this brings out the best in fans, you have to chime in with your waste off space
comment. Nice.Regarding the legitimacy of the competition, it's
certainly not James' fault that this is who his first start is against. I
watched his career in high school and know that he is light years better than
that now. He has the talent to fill the air with touchdowns and drop dimes all
day long. Only problem down here is that our cable doesn't have ESPN3.
Looking for a place to watch the game!
Good luck to James Lark & the Cougs. I hope you tear up the Aggies &
make it difficult for the coaching staff to not start you in San Diego as well.
@ Amorphous,The game is going to be streamed online at the ESPN3
website, it's not on TV as for as I know. That's the only place to
watch it, hope that helps!
@ ChrisBWow, I actually gave you a like on your comment. I think
I'm about to have a heart attack! You know what ChrisB, I wish BYU fans
and Ute fans would come together and cheer for each other when they are not
playing against each other. Why can't that happen? Why can't the
state of Utah unite (including Utah State) so that Utah can come into dominance.
I think it would be good for everyone involved. What say you?
FB Fan#2,Thx for the tip. I am a fan of these young men, not so much some
of the coaches, but certainly these players. I am thrilled for this shot James
is getting. It is not only deserved but well earned.
