How can it be said that the Cougars are trending downward until they play a game? Washington is certainly trending upward over the past two years, but BYU isn't yet trending downward. Let's keep our fingers crossed that this prediction doesn't come true.

Old Scarecrow

BYU trending downward? Of course they're rebuilding with Hall, Unga, Jorgensen, etc. gone, but where is the trend downward? If the defense completely fails, and neither quarterback is effective, then that would be something to worry about. If the Cougars defeat Washington today and the Huskies continue their road losing streak, would that be considered a trend upward for the Cougars in Mr. Call's mind? Doubt it. Good background information for game day, but a questionable opinion on BYU's direction. Go Cougars!


Our defense will shine.
Defense will give the offense a chance to regroup.

Go Cougs!


According to Webster's, a trend is "a prevailing tendency, direction, or style" Hmmmm If the cougs win less than 10 games this year and fewer than that next year, that would be trending downward. Even the most dire prognosticators see brighter days ahead for the Cougs after a starting quarterback is selected and the team gets some experience. At this point, "Trending downward' has no basis whatsoever!


So how many series will Nelson get? I say Nelson will get 2 series at best or he will get yanked for sure when Washington goes up 14 zip.

I think the article was spot on though. They are not going to be 11-2 this year and 8-4 at best would be trending in the other direction. Pretty simple.

For "bright days" to come, bronco has to win the games that really count(like FSU at home or on the road this year) and not just running the table on UNLV, NM and CSU.


Apparently Jeff Call doesn't know the true definition of a trend. A team that has won 10 games each of the last four seasons isn't trending downward. Poor use of words. That said, BYU is going to get pounded by Washington. 38-17.

cewgs will put up a fight, but locker will be too much in the end. 30 to 21 Washington


I stand corrected. This 2 QB system is so crazy, it just might work. Nice job BYU!
