Game day. The red hot pistolero as arrived in sleepy happy valley. Will Jake the
Kid meet him in a high noon shootout and survive. Can a banged up D keep their
heads in the game and stop the silver bullet. Game day. Questions with answers
to come today. The Kid will be riding into Cougar Stadium on his trusty Bronco
to answer the faithful.
You know you got trouble when Nevada is favored to win on your own field.That's bad folks.
Well no doubt Byu's D will have their hands full, so their best D may have to be
their offense. Long sustained drives with DiLuigi running the ball, mixed with
in Quezada and Kariya. But for goodness sake get the frickin ball to McKay
Jacobson in this game! 4 recs on the year so far? he is too good not to be
getting more then that. Use the TEs as well, in the washington game I believe
Wilson was fairly effective with 3 catches for 45 yards, we haven't seen much of
the TEs since. As for the defense, they had better tackle alot better then they
did at FSU. However if they can contain Kaepernick much like they did Locker in
week 1 then I believe BYU will have a very good chance to win this game. The
offense though must take advantage of a weak nevada D and move the ball
effective to keep our D off the field and well rested.GO Cougars!
hedge hoggs,Utah is the fourth best program in the state!!!Really? Which team has won the most/more Games?This season, Utah 3-0Ever, Utah 620 winsHighest winning percentage?Utah 57.7%Number of undefeated seasons?8Conference
championships?Utah - 26number of bowl wins?12head to head wins?Utah 50-31 over BYU 77-28 over Utah StateWins over top 25 teams in final AP rankings?Utah 14 BYU 13Care to do a little research and see if your team can match any of those
stats?So, how is it that any team in Utah is better than Utah?
Jordan, that ship has sailed I'm afraid. The BYU team we roll in November will
most certainly not be good.They will be 1-3 after this week. They
will be terrible and we will rack up our biggest blowout yet of those blue
Good luck BYU, even though I am a Ute fan. And please don't make sweeping
generalizations about Ute fans just because of a couple of people on these
boards. The same thing happens from BYU posters on the Utah boards. But
seriously, good luck, because I want to play a good BYU team come November, just
like you guys would rather play a good Utah team. That's what makes this
rivalry fun. So let's just get over the divisive comments and remember that
this is football, let's just have fun. In saying that, I still say Go Utes!

about being a Utah fan is we know when the big games come - we'll handle our
business. ]]]LOL.UNLV.Look for BYU to
break out and San Jose to or San Juan, or Jose Juan to expose the Utes weak

fourth best program in the state!!!Go Utes.
"As we continue to improve our assignments, improve our fundamentals and
continue to play with more of a consistent effort, I think we'll improve,"
Mendenhall said. "I'm not saying that will be this week nor am I saying that
we'll stop or even slow down the pistol (offense). That's our hope.Ai yai yai!
Look at the three teams BYU and Neveda has played against. Cal may have have
had problems with the pistol as BYU did with AF. With alittle experience now,
BYU may just win this thing. Chris may have to take his insecure feelings to

Cris B! What's this WE business? Are you out there making tackles or running
the ball? Have you discussed with the coaches when the big games are coming?
You're a fan--not a player. Your insecurity is showing. We?? Ha!

TrueblueDefense not very good? I'm not so sure about that. Cal's
running back had a big day, but if I'm not mistaken Nevada had three picks and
two or three sacks in the game. That doesn't bode well for BYU which does not
have a comparable running game and will rely on a freshman's arm to win or at
least stay in the game. Dontay Moch, Nevada's stud D end, is reported by USA
Today to have run times of 4.08, 4.19 and 4.2 in the 40 on three consecutive
tries at a pro combine recently. Me thinks BYU will have its hands full with
Well, I am terrified that BYU is about to lose #3 to Nevada! The defense better
wake up, and the Offense needs a Jolt of something? The best way to beat Nevada
is to have long sustaining drives which chew up the clock, and keep the Nevada
Offense OFF the field! We can do this, I know we can, but I am really nervous
about it! This could be a great day for Heaps, and he knows it. JUST PLAY BYU
FOOTBALL! Defense, hit people, knock some teeth loose! Make them think about it
every time they are going to catch a ball! Believe me, this is how to beat them!
Now let's go out there and do it!!! I still have hopes of 9-3! Show me Saturday
it CAN BE DONE!
Yankee Doodle,You're right. utah hasn't played anyone yet. But the
thing about being a Utah fan is we know when the big games come - we'll handle
our business. Utah actually gets up for and nearly always wins the big games

I'll be there too!
BYU's in huge trouble. Nevada has a terrible history vs. the PAC, yet they
destroyed Cal at home. The only advantage BYU has in this game is being at home
and Nevada's defense. BYU has to own the clock or they are going to get a FSU
type of licking like last year. I cheer for BYU as much as anyone, but
realistically this game will put Nevada in the top 25 for their first time. By the way, I love all the "Nevada" fans and continued unsportsmanship
(hatred) from utes. Some things never change...thanks to all of you for
continued classlessness. You demonstrate what your program is all about.
Hey Yankee Doodle, how about we put a huge asterisk while we're at by BYU's 1984
supposed NC. How can a team that didn't beat a single final ranking top 25 team
be the NC? Let alone barely beat a 6-6 Michigan team in their lower tier bowl
game. Wow, that is the accomplishment of a lifetime. Utah's 04 team would have
rolled BYU 84 by two touchdowns or more and you and all the Y fans know it.
Heck the 08 Utah team was better than that 84 Y team. So if you are going to
live by putting asterisks by your rival’s stats so to must you reap that
rewards of that choice for your own team.
Nevad's D is soft. BYU is going to get there first 300 passing yard game of the
season on saturday
I'm actually starting to feel bad for tds. Might even root for them so that are
not so ticked off when they play my Aggies next Friday.
Yeah and how good are Eastern Washington and Colorado State and Cal? They most
likely won't have 6 wins between them. And also Nevada's D ranks #88 in total
defense, not that scary. So I think this is a perfect opportunity for Jake Heaps
to show how he will outshine and eclipse little Wynnie up on the hill for the
next four years, Heaps now with the starting role will light them up even
I only watched part of the Nevada-Cal game, but I was very impressed with
Colin. He's very deceptive with his fake handoffs, he runs well, and he can pass
effectively. He's better than Locker or Ponder. BYU's defense will have all they
can handle and then some. They'd better tackle better than they did against
Florida State or the score could get ugly.On the bright side,
Nevada's defense isn't very good. Cal shot themselves in the foot many times or
the Bears would have been able to hang with the Wolfpack to the end.The spotlight is on Jake and a struggling, but talented, offense. Monday
morning we could be talking about Jake's coming out party, or we could be
commiserating about another beatdown at home.Time to strut your
stuff Jake!Go COUGARS!
This is a must win game for the Cougars, I hope Heaps lights up the Nevada D.
Hey Chris B the self proclaimed Wizard of predictions ooooooooo ahhhhhhh and
hedgie(both once again commenting on EVERY BYU story) How about them
Pitt-iful Panthers. 7 cupcaked games until a real test. Put an asterisk by the
Utesies ranking, no more talk about them until they play a real opponent and
lose 3 straight then let's see how many comments you will be making.
I graduated from High School with Colin's parents in NEW LONDON WI so I've been
watching Colin. Rick and Teresa will be at the game in Provo to watch Colin
give BYU all they can handle and then some. It ought to be very exciting game.
I'll a BYU fan next week!!! GO WOLFPACK!!!
Actually I think the tds will put up an effort this Saturday — in a
“Custer’s Last Stand” sort of way. In the end BYU will simply
be outcoached and overmatched — again.Nevada 27BYU

victory and predict winning the remaining 9 games on the schedule.
The Wolf Pack has converted first downs on 25-of-37 third-down plays, a rate of
Don't show any mercy this saturday colin. We will be there cheering for you.
He is going to have a heisman like day against this high school defense. Should
be two lopsided games saturday with both outcomes making utes happy. Nevava 44

weeks have been quite accurate.
