This notion that BYU is "about equal" to the Utes in 2016 is ridiculous.
How does a Cougar fan justify that despite having an identical record with Utah
(9-4) that BYU wasn't ranked in the 3 major college football polls (AP,
CFP, and Coaches), and yet Utah was ranked in the Top 25 in all 3? In other
words, what do Cougar fans know that somehow the college football world outside
of Provo doesn't?Best wishes to these new recruits (except when
they play the Utes of course)....
@Time2Play - Veradale, WAI'm glad there are great kids like
these that want to play for a great program with a remarkable staff and a great
reputation. It's not easy to find players who commit to live by such high
standards today, but they will be rewarded.-------------Actually it is pretty easy to find players who commit to live by such high
standards today. In fact, KS recruited those players at Utah and
WACerUtah's Little Brother: Really? You actually combed
through 51 posts, just to categorize them by fanbase? Wow! Talk
about "obsessed". P.S.: See my June 16, 2017 post at 8:53
p.m. to bemorefair. It isn't Ute fans who are nervous. It's the
"midmajors forever" who've been losers of 6 in a row, 11 of 14,
two-thirds of the last quarter century, and have the quarter century deficit in
the all-time series. You keep pointing the finger at us, but you're not
fooling anyone. We can clearly see how frightened you really are. It really is
that obvious. How miserable for you.
801Those high standards are lived more rigorously than by any other
group of college athletes in the country.
@ Time2Play - Veradale, WAoh trust me, those "high
standards" aren't being lived as much as you think. i've
personally seen things that are on the contrary. let's just say that the
incident where a "certain linebacker" who was spotted somewhere doing
things he agreed not to do, is a lot more common than people think
I have to say, I'm really impressed with all of the statistics that people
look up for these conversations. I just don't have time to look up such
"important things" about the BYU and Utah rivalry, thanks for doing it
for me. The percentage of how much time one team has held the lead in the
rivalry over the past several years? Not weird at all and VERY important to
know...I'm glad there are great kids like these that want to
play for a great program with a remarkable staff and a great reputation.
It's not easy to find players who commit to live by such high standards
today, but they will be rewarded.

set in motion. The nervousness on the hill is growing....sigh
Whitles must be the greatest of all time. After all he's
developed so many OC's.At #9 out of the last 10 years, I bet
Taylor doesn't last either. Let's talk about Utah LaCross.
Riverton Cougar:"Let's not forget that BYU had their fair
share of mistakes and turnovers as well..."Let's ALSO not
forget that Utah beat your WACish and midmajory program 6 times in a row, and
all but 3 games over these past 15-yrs! That amounts to an ENORMOUS edge to
your big brother on the hill. And all those wins came DESPITE that game being
your "Super Bowl", whereas Utah treats as nothing more than just another
non-conference game vs. an unranked FBS opponent. You guys come out "fired
up" for this game, whereas our guys have been seen texting and tweeting on
their cell phones on the sidelines.Here's another fun fact for
you: Since leaving the MWC...(1) There had been 300-min of game
played.(2) Utah held the lead for a total of 253-min, 30-sec -- or 84.5%
of all minutes played.(3) The cougars held the lead for only 9-min,
40-sec -- or merely 3.2% of all minutes played.So 84.5% for Utah;
3.2% for little bro.HUGE edge: Utah.Yes, we really ARE
that much better. How miserable for you.
bemorefair:The reason there are so many insecure cougar fans posting
fantasies about Ute fans being insecure is to assuage the anguish of their OWN
insecurities over the reality that not only had Utah already passed their
program by, but had done so nearly 2 decades BEFORE we had been invited to join
the very conference that they had been fantasizing about having had "secret
negotiations" with since -- at the very LEAST -- the 1980s. And if Utah
could reclaim their station as "best in state" while still a midmajor,
just imagine how wide gap between our two programs would be expected to grow now
that we're a bonafide P5 program! What a terribly frightening situation
you all find yourselves in. Hence, your permanent vacation into the world of
@Riverton3-9 Arizona 16 BYU 18So, BYU is soooooo
much better because they managed to win by 2 points because of a timeout? Wow,
that's impressive. Unlike Arizona, Utah is top 25 P5 program.
@bemorefair - I really like you posts, I usually get a real laugh out loud
moment. Please tell us more about the great rating BYU has on the 2019
recruiting and then follow up with more on the greatness of Sitake.For the real BYU fans, it looks like you got a group of kids with good
character and potential to be good college football players. As far as comments
about recruiting classes, I will wait until the classes are actually signed
before a final evaluation.
The reason there are so many insecure Ute fans posting here is because they know
how good a coach Kalani is. He's every bit the coach Kyle is but also far
more personable and he is the center of the college football universe for the
Polynesian community. He is a magnet for BYU recruiting. The best Polynesian
players are committing to BYU football in droves.And he's just
"Scared? Of a team whose biggest accomplishment in 7 years is a one point
loss at RES despite +3 in TOs?"@UteologyI'm so
glad the higher-ups in college football designated you to determine what are a
team's biggest accomplishments. Thank goodness for your knowledge and
wisdom or we would all be lost!@Naval"Just accept
it! You guys got beat straight up, and DESPITE our turning the ball over 6
times. Utah really IS that much better than the Y."So, Utah is
soooooo much better because they managed to win by 1 point on a botched call?
Wow, that's impressive. Let's not forget that BYU had their fair share
of mistakes and turnovers as well, yet managed to keep the game extremely close
against a team that "really IS that much better"."That
much better"... One point better against a team in their 2nd game breaking
in a brand new HC, OC, DC, offense, and defense, not to mention at home. That is
sooooooo much better I can't even fathom it! However, it appears we have to
defer our facts to the opinions of the "designated experts" like
yourself and Uteology, right?
Striker: "I have no idea of the validity or accuracy of your list, but
it's common knowledge he can develop next level talent in
abundance."Common knowledge should be able to be supported by
evidence; claiming "common knowledge" in and of itself is not evidence.
The validity and accuracy of my list comes from two resources: 1) knowing which
coaches were in charge of which recruiting regions. Sitake recruited primarily
the islands, non-local JUCOs, and eventually Florida as a Utah coach. And 2)
many of the recruiting services list whom the recruit indicates as their primary
recruiter.Like I said, Sitake's a great guy with awesome
energy, and I think has a chance to be very good at BYU and anywhere else he
decides to go. But the bravado of claims how Utah lost so much in recruiting and
development when he left and now all of it is at BYU is mind-boggling to me
where people came up with it, especially since Utah's had 2 of their 3
best-rated recruiting classes in history in the 2 years since he left.
Deep Blue: "Don't even try to argue that Whittingham was
'responsible for developing' that talent.Everyone who knows
anything about college football knows that Head Coaches are primarily
ADMINISTRATORS.They simply don't have time to work one-on-one with
players. That's why they DELEGATE that responsibility to Assistant
Coaches."See my previous post. The same principle goes for
coordinators as well. You can't give credit to him for "developing"
all the great DL and DBs Utah had while he was there. The group he coached all
10 years was the LBs, who were frequently the weak spot of the defense and had
far fewer players go onto NFL careers. So you can't have this argument both
bemorefair:"...they were one botched play call from losing to a
brand new coaching staff."OR......Utah was one
botched play away from beating the cougars by an even LARGER margin. Don't
forget -- the cougars failed on EVERY single 2-pt conversion they attempted back
in 2016, so your failure to convert was hardly a "botched play". At
BEST, it was a "botched call" -- as in you should have kicked the PAT.
And don't forget also that Hill got NOWHERE on that play.But
Utah on the other hand was just INCHES away from a 1st down, deep inside your
redzone. And that was because the runner had BARELY misjudged the 1st down
marker on 3rd down, when running out of bounds. So on 4th-&-inches,
Whittingham opted to kick the FG, rather than go for it on 4th, like he did
TWICE vs. USC! Whittingham knew that Utah had that game in the bag, so he saw
no need to go for it. But had he gone for it, the most probable scenerio would
be that Utah converts, and not only burns more clock, but also gets a TD out of
it, rather than a FG.Just accept it! You guys got beat straight up,
and DESPITE our turning the ball over 6 times. Utah really IS that much better
than the Y.
Uteology - "What I said was he hasn't developed squat since
leaving Utah."Such disrespect for a former Ute coach. As if
Kalani forgot how to coach once he left Utah. LOL The thoughts that form in Ute
fans heads just because your beloved coach switched schools.... CUCKOO!And it's funny that Ute fans are so dismissive of BYU's one-point
loss in SLC last year. Sure, Utah won, but they were one botched play call from
losing to a brand new coaching staff. It was a virtual tie. It's not like
it was some sort of beat down on the road. And since you brag so much about your
"NFL talent", why is it Utah had so many more draft picks than BYU but
barely won at home? And you think you're going to lose all that talent,
especially on the OL, and you're going to win on the road in Provo, where
Utah has only won twice in the last 11 years? Utah will be starting over again
on offense, and BYU has Ty Detmer in year 2 of a pro-style offense designed to
highlight Tanner Mangum's elite skillset. BYU's D is likely improved
over last year D which was #9 vs the run. Credit goes to Sitake, who has been
bringing in enormous Poly talent on both lines. But hey, Kalani was only good at
Utah, right? LOL
Jackie - "Dan Smith: "First I'm shocked that DN allowed
your reference to shooting"Lighten up, Francis. It's a
centuries-old expression."Oh, well since it's centuries-old
why question it. If it was good for flat earth people in the middle ages, it
must be fine for us today. No, what I was hoping for was a little
decorum, but apparently everyone wants the freedom of speech and expression
without the responsibility or consequences of those freedoms. A responsible
someone would have not used that expression understanding the circumstances that
had just occurred. In this "me oriented" snowflake world
we're living in, I guess expecting people to act with decorum
is...what's that centuries old expression again? Oh yeah. A pipe dream. And thanks for respecting me enough to use my name instead of calling me
"Francis" whatever that was supposed to prove.
@DeepBlueNope, the closest BYU has come to beating a top 25 P5
program is a one point loss despite getting 6 TOs. Teams like
Washinton and Texas were never ranked, you beat those teams 40% of the time. The last time you beat a ranked P5 team was in 1996, just 3-27 10% since
1990.I didn't say Sitake wasn't a good coach, specially as
Utah's DC. What I said was he hasn't developed squat since leaving
Ygrad ydad I'm doing well and I hope you're doing well
too. I wish all the best for these recruits, peace brother
Uteology"Scared? Of a team whose biggest accomplishment in 7
years is a one point loss at RES"Don't flatter yourself.Beating Washington, Texas (twice), Georgia Tech, Houston, Boise St, Utah
St, Nebraska, Cincinnati, Michigan St, Mississippi St and Ole Miss were all MUCH
bigger accomplishments than losing a few nail-biters to that BYU-obsessed team
on the hill.
Uteology"So you agree that he hasn't proven that "he
can develop next level talent in abundance"?"Kalani Sitake,
Utah (2005-14)Assistant Head Coach, Defensive Coordinator, Linebackers
(2012-14)Defensive Coordinator, Linebackers (2009-11)Linebackers
(2005-08)Unless you're cluelessly trying to claim that Utah
didn't develop ANY next level defensive talent from 2005 to
2014, your entire narrative is utterly absurd.Don't
even try to argue that Whittingham was "responsible for developing" that
talent.Everyone who knows anything about college football knows that Head Coaches are primarily ADMINISTRATORS.They simply
don't have time to work one-on-one with players. That's
why they DELEGATE that responsibility to Assistant Coaches.From the
ever-increasing responsibilities Whittingham gave Sitake,it's
obvious to everyone, except, apparently, you,that Whittingham had
complete trust in Kalani to DEVELOP the talent that Kyle, and the
rest of his staff, worked so hard to recruit.
@Riverton Cougar - Riverton, UTScared? Of a team whose biggest
accomplishment in 7 years is a one point loss at RES despite +3 in TOs? So you agree that he hasn't proven that "he can develop next
level talent in abundance"? Instead KW, your first choice as coach, has.
Frankly I don't care what the usual suspects think of these players or BYU
in general. Best of luck to them and welcome.
"Sitake since leaving Utah hasn't developed squat."Ok...... since leaving Utah he has been at 2 schools, each one for one year.
Of course he hasn't developed much, he hasn't had time to, unless you
want to count Hill, Williams, and Kaufusi as his developed talent."If or when he does, look for bigger football programs come
calling."Ah, the ultimate hope of the haters: any bad news for
BYU. A good coach leaving, a good player transferring, anything that these
haters can lean on to ease their inferiority complex. They're scared that
an unproven new head coach, with a brand new unproven OC and DC, installing new
offenses and defenses in their 2nd game together was neck and neck with Utah at
RES. Next year the game is in Provo and that BYU team is more comfortable in
their offensive and defensive schemes.

BleedCougarBlue:“My point was that Steve Young was nowhere
near a ‘blue chip’ high school athlete when he was being recruited
by colleges”You still don’t get it, do you? The POINT
is whether or not Steve Young WAS, or was NOT, a “one-star” kid, as
gchris insisted.I say he wasn’t. So unless you’re
saying that he WAS, then you HAVE no point. You can’t just
“imagine” an argument that was never made, and then refute it.
That’s called a “straw man”. Did you just invent a
“straw man”, or are you suggesting that Young was in fact a 1-star
kid coming out of high school?“Why do I say all this? Simply
to refute YOUR claims that all that matters is 'stars'.”I just showed provided you all the necessary Google keywords to read
that article, and no, my name is not Stuart Mandel. And FWIW, if you’re
so certain that star ratings don’t really matter, then why is it that none
of your 2-star kids got drafted several weeks back? The only ones who got
drafted were the ones with 3 or more stars.Read that article. Then
you’ll see. Stars matter.
The Cougars don't really care about the "star" rating. They focus
on:Is the player a relative of someone on the coaching staff?If not,
is the player a relative of a past player?If yes, make an offer.Its a system that keeps the recruiting ranking on a flat line since the MWC

and look how his career ended up....#2 in the Heisman voting, NFC and NVL MVP,
Super Bowl winner, Super Bowl MVP, etc, etc and now in the NFL HOF on his first
attempt. Why do I say all this? Simply to refute YOUR claims that all that
matters is 'stars'. And, yes, that is all you Utah fans ever talk
about when it comes to recruiting....how many stars a player has merited to
him.If that isn't clear enough you'll have to ask someone
else to 'splain it to you.
Not sure about the 2 local kids but I watched highlight vids on Nasilai and it
looked like I was watching clips of the movie "The Waterboy" the way he
was going berserk on the field. The play calls should be pretty easy with him on
defense, just point to the QB and say, "Hulk Smash!"Congrats

BleedCougarBlue: “gchris” claimed that Steve Young was a
“one-star recruit” and that Brian Urlacher was a
“walk-on”. But star ratings weren’t done on high school
football players back when Young and Urlacher were playing, so they
couldn’t have possibly been awarded only 1-star. Additionally, Urlacher
was always a scholarship kid. And therefore, “gchris” DID in fact
just make that stuff up. He was wrong, and I called him out on it. You on the other hand failed to either support gchris’ assertion, or
attempted to refute mine. And yet you addressed me specifically to argue a
point that had never even been disputed. Your response to me was as nonsensical
as if I were to respond to say, “Oh yeah? Well Alex Smith was a #1 Draft
pick.” Sure, that little factoid would be “true”, but it
really had nothing to do with whether or not Young and/or Urlacher were
“one-star recruits” and/or “walk-ons”.So
what was the point of your post?
Dan Smith:“Shoot the messenger” predates what happened
in Virginia by several centuries, so only the extremely hypersensitive would be
offended by such a remark. And FWIW, there isn’t a real
parallel between “shooting the messenger” and “shooting a
legislator”. That was a desperate reach. The former is a “1st
Amendment” matter. The latter was a misuse of the the “2nd”.
If I see a smiling 17 year old kid who make Kalani look small, I smile, forget
the stars, I smile :)
Dan Smith: "First I'm shocked that DN allowed your reference to
shooting"Lighten up, Francis. It's a centuries-old
expression.bemorefair, I like Coach Sitake a lot, really great dude.
But one of the funniest phenomena I've noticed since his hiring is how his
accomplishments at Utah become better and better the longer he's been gone
with fans claiming how many of Utah's current and former players
"he" recruited and "he" coached into the NFL. In his
10 years at Utah, the only position he coached was LB (yes, he was DC for 6
years, but even DCs don't coach other positions). Despite rotating through
several corner, safety, and defensive line coaches those 10 years, every one of
those positions outperformed and had many more players reach the NFL compared
with his LBs. And as a recruiter in that time frame, what star players was he
the lead recruiter for?
YDAD/YGRAD. That may have been the funniest post I have read in a year. Naval
Vet, don't feel to bad or get your dander up. I knew you would be reading
it and am not surprised to see three comments in rapid fire succession.
Regardless of what the heel nippers say, these guys are great pick-ups for the
cougars. GO COUGARS!!!!
Hey Naval Vet, I don't know how many stars Steve Young had or even if they
had 'stars' for a rating system back then, but I do know Steve Young
admitted he did not know, as a running/option QB, how to throw correctly when he
showed up at BYU. I also know he started his BYU career 8th on the QB depth
chart. I also know they temporarily moved him to DB. All this as a QB spells
"coaches across the country didn't think he had much talent".I also know he is now in the NFL Hall of Fame. Or do you
want to dispute that, too?
I appreciate kids who want to play for BYU. I wish them the best. I
don't, however, think that we have one of the best recruiting classes in
the country because ours is pretty large compared to a lot of universities.
They will fill their scholarships and then the rankings will be adjusted. Our
average star ranking isn't amazing, but there are definitely kids who will
outperform their ranking--especially kids in the 2019 class.As for
Naval Vet, I'm not sure his use of "frantic and emotional" is
accurate, but I don't mind him helping BYU generate the most commented
stories on the Deseret News!
Naval Vet"Shoot the messenger much?"First
I'm shocked that DN allowed your reference to shooting anyone considering
this day and age and what happened to Republicans in Virginia. Second, it's easy to dislike the messenger when the messenger disparages
your team over, and over, and over, and over in a frantic and emotional mocking
of another team for personal benefit. Really it's quite simple.
Quit bashing BYU and just cheer for your team. No one hates, everyone respects.
gchris:“When someone can tell me how one-star recruits like
Steve Young or walk-ons like Brian Urlacher become All-Americans and four-star
recruits like Jake Heaps are such busts, I'll buy in.“First of all, neither Steve Young nor Brian Urlacher were either
“1-star” athletes OR “walk-ons”. You just made that up.
How frantic and emotional of you.Second, the answer to your
question had already been published over a year ago, when Stewart Mandel wrote
on “foxsports” his Feb. 1, 2016 article “3 debunked recruiting
myths that prove Signing Day is crucial”. There he debunked the
“Star rankings don’t matter” myth.Well
Look, another Ute looking to mock Kalani Sitake's recruiting.cjd1 - Draper, UTJune 15, 2017 12:12 a.m.Wow! BYU's scout
ranking just went from # 62 to # 61.Actually, cjd1, BYU went from
#33 to #31 in the last 24 hours. Rankings are easy to find. (Well, for some of
us.) #31 is much higher than it has been in quite some time. BYU's 2019
class is ranked even higher.Ute fans should understand better than
anyone just how good Kalani is at his job. His track record speaks for itself.
(Also, don't forget how good he has been at finding four-star talent listed
as two-stars or no-stars.)Just because you are in denial about
BYU's recruiting being so good right now doesn't mean it isn't
true. BYU recruiting is straight fire right now.
Cougsndawgs:"He's 3 stars according to Rivals so we
won't have to listen to any of the 2 star bogus from the typical
haters."Oliver Nasilai is, but Tysen Lewis isn't, so it
looks like you're gonna have to listen to my "2-star" tune after
all. Haha!* Ahem * Per Rivals, Tysen Lewis should fit
right in down there in Provo, since he has only 2-stars.
Y Grad / Y Dad:"Naval Vet will tell us who he hasn't had
offers from...and give us his lowest star ranking at no extra charge."I don't cherry pick the lowest possible star ranking. You just
made that up. How frantic and emotional of you. I only cite what Rivals says.
So I couldn't possibly give the lowest star ranking, as I'm not the
one responsible for assigning them. If you have a problem with the number of
"2-star" kids in Provo, then your issue isn't with me. It's
with either Rivals -- for ranking them so low -- or the Y's coaching staff
-- for recruiting so many low-ranked athletes.Shoot the messenger
The folks who do the ratings of recruits--three stars, four stars, etc.--have
their opinion, Sitake has his and knows what kind of player he wants for his
system and the unique culture of BYU. When someone can tell me how one-star
recruits like Steve Young or walk-ons like Brian Urlacher become All-Americans
and four-star recruits like Jake Heaps are such busts, I'll buy in. Until
then, I'll trust the judgment of Sitake and Detmer.
Kalani Sitaki is the best medicine that BYU football ever had since LaVell
Edwards. Look at those smiles of all. Welcome aboard!! We're looking
forward to a great season.Go BYU Cougars!
Wow! BYU's scout ranking just went from # 62 to # 61.
Once someone commits with the certainty that Nasilai did, the rating systems
generally ignore the player. Coach Sitaki did well.
Spokane Ute - no need to report on his other offers. Naval Vet will tell us who
he hasn't had offers from, define yet again the clear distinction between
offers and lots of interest, and give us his lowest star ranking at no extra
charge.The speed with which he does it will be directly and
inversely proportional to the number of positive comments by cougar fans.How have you been, brother?!?! I hope all is well in the heart of the
Spokane:If you go to his Rivals page it lists them all...ASU, Arkansas,
Ark St, and Utah but it looks like Oklahoma St and BYU are the only ones that
actually offered to this point. I'm sure others will come. He's 3
stars according to Rivals so we won't have to listen to any of the 2 star
bogus from the typical haters.This kid is big but moves really well.
Wouldn't surprise me to see him end up on the DL before it's all said
Could they at least let everyone know who else was recruiting the lad?Best of luck to the kid!
