  • What can I say, I'm a football junky. I didn't plan on watching Bowls until the Vegas Bowl but this game is on. Hope I'm not alone. Lets discuss. ESPN.

  • You have internet. Try thefirstrow.eu and check American football. I don't want to give a direct link or I may get in trouble. Hope that helps.

  • Yes, which is why I find it so funny that Notre Dame beat them by a whopping 13-6. Remember how I said if BYU had a QB they'd have won that game? I wasn't kidding. Their offense sucks so bad, and put up 6. If they had me playing QB they would have scored at least 14. Haha.

  • Dayam, Ansah is a monster, and my dream draft pick. Who is ±#3, dude is tearing it up on D also. Those 2 feed off of each other.

  • And the BYU QB throws a 5 yard route on a 3rd and 10. I mean not only was it incomplete but it was a horizontal route that had no first round opportunity.

  • Jesus this is painful to watch. C'mon BYU you have to have a better option then this guy at QB! Even if he completed that pass it was still short of a TD.

  • You can see my thoughts on Van Noy in the thread where I was hyping Ansah. Van Noy is a beast. He's not going pro this year though. He's still only 20 I think. He enrolled early and such. Good kid, incredible athlete, and will be a dominant player. I think he will either need to bulk up to play LB in the NFL, or slim down very slightly and make the move to safety. He reminds me a lot of Kam. He plays the same position where Urlacher was used in college (Mendenhall was Urlacher's DC in college and created the position for Urlacher's unique skills, most notably his blazing speed, which sounds funny now, but he was EXACTLY like Van Noy when he was young).

    Ansah is the real deal. Too bad I don't get to see any of the game. Being stuck in mom's basement means no ESPN and the slowest internet connection on earth. I haven't missed seeing a BYU game in probably 25 years. Now I missed a bowl game. Sucks. Thanks for the updates though. Gamecast doesn't give a feel for what's happening.

    And BYU has ZERO option at QB. The QB who they depended on is a Washington kid who was the #1 QB in the nation named Jake Heaps. He got his feelings hurt last year and transferred to Kansas prior to this season. Then they got a kid named Taysom Hill who transferred from Stanford and was going to be Andrew Luck's successor. He blew out his knee though early in the season on a stupid play they ran when he should have been kneeling on the ball. OC ruined the team's season. Taysom Hill is the real deal though. Heaps was darn good as well. BYU got stuck with a guy who is really a safety in Riley Nelson playing QB and he's awful, and Lark has played one game in his whole college career and it was against New Mexico State a few weeks ago. He's a 5th year season with 7 quarters of experience. BYU's coaches were pretty well screwed once Hill went down, and having no backup plan was too bad, but Heaps leaving left them in a seriously bad spot. He was going to be the 4 year starter and was angry that he got benched for a game and stopped practicing and said he was out of here. Really too bad.

    And he has scored more points than either team. :D

  • BYU's kicker (Sorensen) blew out multiple discs in his back. It is sad. The kid used to nail 65 yarders in high school. He's the best prep kicker I've ever seen by far, and I'm not exaggerating. He needs career ending surgery, but there's nothing they can do now. They couldn't add anybody to the roster and thought he'd heal enough by now after the long break, but rumor is that he's in so much pain he can barely stand. I'm surprised the announcers haven't talked about it. Apparently he's risking paralysis by even playing. The punter tried to kick for a while, but he can't hit an extra point either (although he's ok on kickoffs) so they're stuck with Sorensen. Poor kid, he's an awesome guy. My cousin interviewed him quite a bit as he was one of the top recruited kickers in the country and chose BYU because he's local and they've needed a good kicker. He came in and was lights out, and then his back just went (sort of like us ivotuk) and it has ruined his career. He's gutsy though to try to play it out because he feels he owes it to honor his scholly.

  • Van Noy = absolute monster. He and Cody Hoffman, Ross Apo, Jake Heaps, and Manti Te'o all agreed to come to BYU together. One of these things is not like the other....

    If Te'o had come to BYU, imagine how amazing their LBer corps would be with those two. I think BYU may have gotten the better end, but national media has seemed to ignore Van Noy.

  • I'd say Hoffman needs more time. He's not good enough to overcome the lack of recognition.

    My PC went down last week and I'm stuck with my Ipad. Not conducive to reading or writing a lot. Bought myself a nice Xmas present from Newegg though. Just waiting for it to get here :)
