Say this much about Robertson Daniel -- the junior college transfer who will start at field cornerback for the Cougars on Saturday against Texas -- he doesn't lack confidence.
Daniel was finally allowed to talk to reporters this week -- per BYU's rule that forbids newcomers from talking to the media until after they play their first game. We call it the O'Neill Chambers rule, after the former Cougar receiver popped off his first day of fall camp about already being better than other receivers in camp, and the like.
Anyway, Daniel appeared in the football offices lobby Wednesday and almost immediately pronounced himself ready to run with Texas' superstar receivers. In his first Division I start, Daniel played well against Virginia, breaking up two early passes when the Cavaliers tested him at the get-go.<
