I was very excited to see the Bomb Squad in action during the public scrimmage
on Aug 15. It was a disappointing night to say the least. Taysom played flat
and the only receivers who stood out were Henderson, Blackmon, and Dye. Trey
Dye had the play of the night with an awesome catch and gritty run after the
catch. Blackmon looks very athletic and fast. Should be a fun season. Bring
I agree with CT98. Taysom Hill didn't play his best, but everybody has an
off-night. I will be surprised if it happens more than once or twice this
season.I was pleasantly surprised with some of the receivers.
Between an improved OL, improved passing accuracy, and better WRs I think we can
expect a much improved offense this year.Go Cougars!
I read this somewhere and I wasn't sure what to think of this opinion, but
I now kind of agree that it would be good for Nick Kurtz to redshirt this
season. There are just so many other guys who can play right now, a few of which
will be leaving next year, and it will just mean more room on the depth chart
for him next year and the year after that. That's my opinion now at least.
In the mean time, it will be exciting to see what the other guys can do. Go Cougars!
Time to make predictions for the year.Utah I think will be 6 and 6.
Worst case scenario 5 and 7. Best case 8 and 4.BYU I think will end
up at 9 and 3. Worst case scenario 7 and 5. Best case 10 and 2.Utah
State I think ends up at 10 and 2. Worst case 7 and 5. Best case 11 and 1.
I wouldn't worry too much about fall camp scrimmages and what we saw (or
didn't see) during those sessions. Having played football in the heat
during the fall, it's brutal at times and grueling and sometimes you lose a
little focus or you're just tired. It's not like a game where
you're amped up and ready to hit someone else besides the guys you've
been up against all month. What I do know is BYU seems more
athletic, faster, and more dynamic at the skilled positions, and the O-line
looks improved from a year ago. With those upgrades BYU will be fine, and be
better offensively than last year...don't worry about what happened in the
scrimmage. Defensively I have some concerns but if players step up at certain
positions I'm confident they'll be fine on that side of the ball as
well. Friday...get here already! GO COUGS!
I hope I'm wrong, but I'm just not feelin' with this offense.
As soon as Bronco finds(and plays) a QB who can throw the ball, I'll start
to believe at least a portion of the hype. Until then, we'll see byU
continue to be a very average team who beats up on mostly very bad teams.As always, go Utes!!
Goforit,Your prediction is a little high for the utes. 6-6 would be the
best case with 4-8 the most likely outcome
As long as Robert Anae is the OC, I'm not holding out much hope. He tends
to get too predictable at times...
Ken,I don't care about any of the hype about Utah (please note
I spelled it with some respect). I don't comment on articles about Utah
(waste of time) but answer me this Ken, which of your quarterbacks are on the
Heisman watch list? I will give you a small hint, it is less than 1. I
don't worry about the Utes quarterbacks, but I suggest you should and stop
wasting your and our time posting on BYU articles.
