Yep! Drew was a missionary here in McAllen.
Great article.Go Reillys! And go Utes!
Looking at the picture, true to form, the BYU player is the little brother.
Gosh I have grown to really hate the pitiful reporting comes with each Holy War
week. People like Jeff Call and a zillion others simply pull out the stories
they have written from years past or since being given the game assignment
change a few names, dates, and records, voila today's story. Is it not
possible to come up with a new angle aside from the brother vs brother, husband
vs wife, parents that have one son at Utah and one at BYU and are conflicted
about it. Tomorrow will bring the dichotomy of coaches at Utah who played for
BYU, Wednesday comes the kids at Utah who couldn't make the grade at BYU,
Friday gives us the kids at Utah that grew up BYU fans but weren't offered
along with the kids at BYU who grew up Utah fans that weren't offered, and
the chip(s) sitting on each shoulder. BORING
One of the biggest games of the year and as always, Utah will play hard and
win.Byu will likely come out with a lot of emotion, and then a
challenge comes they'll start cowering in a corner. byu is just to
emotionally soft. It's quite wonderful watching them self
destruct against Utah4-0 SWEEP2nd sweep in last 15
years.Do you know how far back you have to go to get last two 4-0
streaks for byu over Utah?FarVery FarVery
It looks like Trevor made the right decision to play for an Elite, Prestigious,
and Beloved BCS program like Utah. Unlike the Indy-Wacy one that chose to play
for a Non-elite, Non-Prestigious, and Non-beloved program like BYU. Trevor
realized that its better to "lose every game in the PAC-12 than to be
Independent." Ain't that right Chris B.?
Great article. I didn't realize they were brothers. Hoping Drew will add
some needed depth.
Excuse my little sister's desperate and emotional rant. She's
obviously entered full-fledged panic mode after Saturday's home field beat
down by a team that couldn't even beat Weber State conference mate Eastern
Washington.After last Saturday's melt down, the Utes are facing
the very real possibility of a 2-7, 1-8, or even a 0-9 PAC season, so BYU will
very likely be Utah's bowl game, again.Since our team has
decided to run away and hide for the next two seasons, this year's rivalry
game is a three-fer; three years of bragging rights for the cost of one win.
Christy,We just realized that fresno is a more high profile team and
provides a bigger challenge than byu.When byu beat Texas, did the
media talk about how good byu was or how terrible texas was?AS you
see, byu is not half the national program you think you areFresno is
as good if not better program than byu
Chris B.Smack talk aside, seriously why did Utah lose that game?
They should have demolished Oregon State. I get the fact that OSU is an Elite
PAC-12 team too but Utah is obviously the superior team. So why did they lose?
Emotions? Pressure? Tired? What? There's no excuses of course but why did
they lose? Because I thought that they were gonna be 4-0 and a top 25 ranking, I
Sorry little sister, but a team that only has TWO lifetime AP Top 25 finishes
(#24 in 1992 and #22 in 2004), can't seriously be compared to a team that
has SEVENTEEN AP Top 25 finishes, including a National Championship, and FOUR AP
Top 25 finishes since 2006.Regardless of how much we try to live in
denial, our Utes are running away from BYU because, as our good Dr. Hill said,
we're not good enough to handle playing BYU and Michigan OOC in the same

after your comment before the Oregon state game"2013 Ute Seniors
SWEEP byU 4-0Ogden, UTOur offense is better than their defense and
our defense is much better than their offense.I think their QB will
be spending all night on his back side.Utah wins easyUtah 34Osu 17."Yea that didn't really pan out the
way you thought. And neither will the BYU game.GO COUGARS!
-Chris BAll of us BYU fans are waiting for your analysis of the
Oregon State Game. I could sworn you predicted an easy win...
Any fan who would try to equate Fresno State to BYU obviously doesn't know
much about football.With only two AP Top 25 finishes in their entire
history, the Bulldogs are much more like the Utes (only five AP Top 25
finishes), than the Cougars (SEVENTEEN AP Top 25 finishes).------------Despite christina's desperate attempt to deny
reality, the national media recognized BYU with several weekly awards after
BYU's beat down of Texas, including:-Football Writers
Association of America (FWAA) National Team of the Week-CBSSports Player
of the Week - Taysom Hill-Athlon Nat'l Player of the Week - Taysom
"We just realized that fresno is a more high profile team and provides a
bigger challenge than BYU."LOL!Did you
"realize" this while you were planning your trip to Utah's bowl
game last season?The delusion on the hill knows no bounds.
A-Aron(great name by the way),I thought Utah's defense played
terribly Considering how bad Utah's offense was and with Utah putting up a
ton of points, even with 3 picks by Wilson give me a lot of optimism for the
season.The defense, which is usually great, underperformed. Considering byu has the worst passer rating QB in the entire country
I'm not too worried about this Saturday, however.
2013 Ute Seniors SWEEP byU 4-02nd sweep in last 15 years.Do you know how far back you have to go to get last two 4-0 streaks for byu
over Utah?-------------------------The Seniors in 1975,
1976, 1977, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1992.I don't
know how old you are, but those are all within my adult lifetime. How far do you
have to go back to get the last 10 times the utes have done it?
Best of luck to both Trevor and Drew in the game. Should be a good game, good
luck on preparations to both teams but of courseGo Utes!!1
BYU is nationally recognized by the sports media and coaches all around the
country. Here's the reason that the game time for this week's game
was delayed. If BYU lost to Texas, then the rivalry game would have been on one
of the lesser ESPN channels. Since the Cougars won over Texas, the game was set
for ESPN2. The utes should thank the Cougars for having a chance to be on
National television. If the utes were Independent, they WOULDN'T HAVE A
CONTRACT WITH ESPN or any other network.
Silly Fan in Orem, 2013 is a Senior in High School, not an adult...
So many of you posters here are just plain sad. Unfortunately, that won't
change regardless of what happens this Saturday. Obsession, paranoia, and
bitterness run deep in this rivalry and it gets worse by the year.
The Reilly's are from our neck of the woods. Nice family. Kids have been
raised well by good parents. Looking forward to a good game.
How come the guy from byu has longer hair than the guy from Utah?
I see their father, Russ, in the background of a couple of the pictures. Look at
his smile! From purely an athletic standpoint, can there be any better
experience for a parent? Then you throw in Church Missions and Temple Marriage,
then you get a real glimps of what pure joy and happiness is.
Trevor has been a great player at the U, I'm sure Drew will be a stud at
BYU as well.Go Utes!!!
Does Chris B happen to wear Suspenders?
Have golfed several times with Trevor and the Kruger Bros. They're all a
riot!! T-Dogg is a stud, and I'll look forward to watching another Ute
alum playing in the NFL.Go Trevor! Go Utes!
I will give Chris B some props. The prestigious U of U has QB #11 in the
country as far as passer rating. Well done. His average is right around what
Taysom Hill got against Texas. And while I think taysom will play better than
his current QBR is (63) it is nowhere near the last place team. In fact he is
56 of 132 according to the world wide leader. If you want to have any shred of
credibility, stick to your facts.And it's true, when byu beat
texas there was a lot of talk on ESPN and other national television and web
companies talking about the game, and how texas isn't that good. Just like
they all talked about Utah's wins...oh wait, that's my bad, they
Looking forward to the game this weekend. Hopefully both teams play to the best
of their respective abilities with no injuries. I really don't think we can
draw much information from this years wins/losses so far. Still too early to
know which opponents were actually decent teams. I.e. each week Texas looks
weaker and weaker. May the best team win and may that team be BYU!
