Austin Collie has re-written the BYU recieving record book. At the end of the Las Vegas Bowl this week, Austin Collie should hold every single BYU career and single season record at BYU. And it's not like BYU is known for there running game. Collie may not be the best in the country, but if he isn't he's certainly close with 10 consecutive 100 yard games, over 1400 yards, 95 catches, and 15 TD's. He may recieve less ESPN love than Crabtree and Bryant but I believe he is every bit as good.

It is hard to argue with 10 consecutive games with 100 yard receiving. Collie's performance is extraordinary.

Watch some Collie film. I have watched Crabtree. Without a doubt, he is most excellent, but Collie, at this point in their respective careers, excells not only in stats but dymanics, skills, reliability, and athleticism.

Let's be real here. Crabtree is the best wide receiver in the nation period. No doubt about it. Austin Collie? Come on. I've watched the kid play and he's a good player who has a chance to be a 2nd or 3rd receiver, but he's not the pure bred talent that Crabtree is. And for giggles if you do want to talk stats, Crabtree has ten more touchdowns in his career and he's played one less season. Crabtree will be a top 5-10 pick and if Austin Collie is one of the first 10 receivers picked.....consider that your Utah miracle boys.

I live in Lubbock and agree that Crabtree is a phenomenal talent, but this year belonged to Collie. The guy bounced back from an off-season injury to record 10 consecutive 100 yard games. The only reason he didn't have more TD's is that BYU has a running game and tight ends to score in shorter yardage situations. Collie never used a redshirt year like Crabtree and he spent two years away from the game as a full-time volunteer in Argentina, which slowed him up a little last year. Even with those challenges Collie, 6'2" 210 is more than a possession receiver.
