@ Striker | 7:36 a.m. Sept. 10, 2011Or, its reverse psychology. By
not talking smack, there is a lack of bulletin board material for byu.
I'm looking forward to an exciting game of smashmouth football!
Jingleheimer you may be in the fetal position if the Y puts it all together
today. They have that capability.What I worry about is what happens
to the Y after they win a tough first game. I hope it is not a repeat of last
year, beating Washington and getting blown out the next week by Air Force. Two
years ago they won the first two games and then get blown out by FSU.
Complacency can grab you in the rear end when you think you have accomplished
more than you actually have. Just play to the level you are
capable of and you will walk away with a win.
Will the real Jake Heaps please stand up.
"They are mean, aggressive type people..."Getting back to
our roots!Mormons make will make Bevo pull their covered wagon!
Execution, execution and more execution! Three keys to the game for a BYU win!
"They've got fullbacks that want to block your soul."
"They are mean, aggressive type people, and it'll be quite a
challenge."Wow, Texas is saying this about BYU? I had to
re-read that a few times. Isn't Texas suppose to have the mean, aggressive
people? They are, after all, making everyone leave the Big XII and change
football as we know it. Still, what a compliment to BYU's
physicality. These church boys are scaring Texas. I'll take it!
My biggest concern is still the play calling by the OC. Not much has changed
from when Anae was there despite all the optimism about Doman the way I saw
it...still dull, boring, and sadly predictable most of the time. Yes, the
offense was methodical in moving the ball last week, but their inability to
score in the red zone was very discouraging. Hope they do a lot better job
today. Glad to hear the center and qb have fixed their snap problems. That was
shameful to say the least last week. It looked like slow pitch softball rather
than football snaps. Btw, I listened to both ESPN and FOX SPORTS
last night and they all predicts BYU and Utah will loose. Oh, and that Hansen
kid, from what I heard he was a stud last night against Highland. Great recruit
for the Utes! Maybe Doman can learn something from his OC's play calling. Go Cougs! Go Utes! Next week will be awesome if they both win this
schmittieAh, the fetal position, that's a trademark of a team that
withers under the spotlight of national tv much like the Utes did last year. No wonder you know so much about it.The Utes are on national
tv again today. Are the Utes having problems being on TV? That's some record, 3
times on national tv and 3 consecutive losses last year against storied
programs. I guess the limited tv coverage for the Utes this year
might just be the therapy needed to turn them into a real powerhouse without the
pressure of national exposure performance.I didn't think so.
Texas won't be able to run the football, so we just have to put pressure on the
quarterback to make him make mistakes, I am looking forward to a good game
@ John J JIngle H S_If the Cougs play in that position at all, then
they will have even more in common with the Ute Offense ..Won't they?
@ Y Grad / Y Dad-" Yes, my optimism is high, but so is my
anxiety.Go COUGS!!!! "Ditto that sentiment!
I fully expect BYU to compete in this game...in the fetal position.
Laker-bandwagonI worry less about his thinking and more about his
physicality. Still, I have to think if the Owls could push them a little bit,
we should be able to push them a little bit more.Interesting that
both teams' strategies boil down to making the quarterback win the game. If
either team can stop or limit the run game, then can that team's quarterback
step up and make the plays?Notwithstanding last week's first half, I
really feel the edge goes to Jake. Of course what I really feel hasn't won a
ball game for BYU yet, but there it is.And I really give the run
defense -vs- rushing offense battle to the cougs.But then I remember
Florida State...Yes, my optimism is high, but so is my anxiety.Go COUGS!!!!
Kid said stop the run then work on stopping the pass, and make them one
dimensional..? What other "dimensions" is left if the run
game and passing game is non existent?Its going to be a long day for
Texas if this is his line of thinking
