I mentioned last week how BYU was pacing to make this a monster season for its tight ends, but it's already been a big year for the tight ends at the Academy. After recording only 13 tight end completions in the last 3 SEASONS combined, the Falcons already have 14 tight end receptions through three GAMES this season. Yes, the Falcons' offense is indeed a little more varied than in years' past...

Channel-flipping tonight, I stopped on ESPNU to see analyst Derwin Gray breaking down some games. I consider myself fairly well-read and up-to-speed on former Cougars and their whereabouts, but I had no idea the onetime Cougar corner was now a national media personality. I was aware that Dewey had been serving as a preacher and indeed is very involved with his "One Heart at a Time" ministries (oneheartatatime.org). I had also heard he had done some TV work with Fox in Charlotte, NC, but now the former Colts and Panthers DB is on the national stage! Attaboy, Derwin, and good luck! I know Cougar fans will be watching.
