Finding the fun in the 2010 season

I'm trying to get back in to this blogging thing.

We're approaching the end of the season here, and I'd like to get something off my chest before it's too late: I love BYU.

I'm a die-hard fan, even when things are looking grim. Like, for example, barely hanging on to beat one of the worst Wyoming teams that has ever existed in the history of humans.

BYU has been a lot of fun to follow the past few years because we've been blowing pretty much everyone away. There was a lot of talent on the team, and we were playing at a high level.

This year is also fun to follow, but a different kind of fun. Not so much Trafalga fun, but more like the Museum of Art fun. You've really got to look for the fun to find it.

For example: I'm having a lot of fun watching the young guys. We're a young team, and we get the unique opportunity right now to watch guys that will be carrying our team for years.

Two players who I'm really excited about are Joshua "Juice" Quezada, and Kyle Van Noy. Both are freshmen, and both have shown exponential improvement over the course of the season.

Juice wasn't getting anything in the early throws of the 2010 season, but now he is a featured back in BYU's new rush-heavy offense.

KVN wasn't seeing the field at all earlier this year, and now he's knocking down QBs, breaking up passes and making headlines.

I like the play of our young guys, and it gives me confidence for the future. We're rebuilding now, but when this baby gets rebuilt, we're going to put the hurt on a whole lot of teams.

This season is fun, guys. Just look a little closer.
