I will get one chance to see the Cougars before my wife and I leave for the mission field.

Christmas in April!!!!

Scranton, Pennsylvania

I think this is a great choice by Bronco. It is rewarding for both the players and the fans to be able to watch their team perform in a spring game. It is probably the best way to track the improvements and also see where more work is needed. Although it is not a real game, it provides a game type situation for the players to show what they got! What a great opportunity! Hopefully there is a good showing at LES! If only the game was aired on ESPN, I would love to check out some of the new talent here in PA! Guess I will just have to wait until Sept. 3 to see my Cougs!

Also I watched the Texas spring game today. The Longhorns have a the new Offensive coordinator from Boise State running a pro-style offense, problem is the entire roster including the QB's are more suited for a spread. If that team does not see some vast improvements by Sept 10, I believe BYU will have a 2-0 start in 2011. An upset in Austin would be HUGE for the move to Independence.

Can't wait!

With the tough schedule BYU opens with, I think the scrimmage game is critical to really evaluate the talent, and the fans love the game. I think it was in the scrimmage game that Max Hall edged out Cooper for the starting spot, in spite of Cooper's injury. And I don't need ESPN for this one - I'd be happy if they broadcast it on BYUTV.

Any chance of getting it on KBYU?

TV would be awesome! Tivo the spring game and watch it after doing yardwork!

Springville, UT

Ugh, leaving town on Friday.

Ann Arbor, MI

i'm sure ESPN will be covering it. It's been "reported" that bYu will earn over 2.2 million.

This is going to be a fun team to watch.

Jimmermania is moving on to the NBA...

Whether or not BYU earns anything for the spring game, they have enough to pay for a basketball coach others want.

springville, UT

One thing is for sure hedgy, the number of fans watching this spring game will out number the ute/usc game this fall....this we know to be true....

Eugene, Oregon

Any way the spring game can be put on BYUTV? I don't get Utah tv where i live but i do get BYUTV.

Fresno, CA

It seems like a fun thing for the players too! The only down-side is now the sports writers have still fill the collegiate sections....


Congratulations on your mission call. I'll miss your comments. Where are you going?

Salt Lake City, UT


This is our third together. We are going to Vancouver Canada Mission. Out last one was in Fukuoka Japan. The hard part is we never missed a game in 27 years and now I have to buy my season tickets and let my kids use them...rats...rats and double rats.

But I wouldn't miss the mission field for anything. It is so great to feel the spirit of the Elders and Sisters. We have seen lives edified and miracles all around us and we love the people we serve among. It is definitly something we love to share in our retirement years.

Nice, Ernest! Thanks for your comments!

Yes, BYU-TV, YouTube, anything! Just a little something for my addiction.

Nice reward for the players for the hard work they have put in. I hope the injury bug does not bite with any season impacting issues. Rise and shout people.

Eagle Mountain, UT

Its great to hear they are doing well enough to change Bronco's mind about a spring game. Me and Ernest T. think this means that they are way good now and will won all their games for sur.

Well, all the excitement hasn't taught you to spell, TJ, and it hasn't helped Ernie figure out the difference between "our" and "are". Must be U grads. I'll be at the spring game. It will be fun to watch.

Holladay, UT

I'm not sure anyone is concerned with the Spring game in Provo this year. There's nothing on the line for the Cougars next year in football, no conference title and no BCS invite.

Well, I guess if BYU beats all those WAC teams, you could make the claim the Cougs are WAC champs.

Draper, UT

When I look around the country, I don't see anyone who can play with us! I can't believe how good we are!
