Okay, the game has been over for more than four hours and, I guess, speaks for itself. No one else is saying much here. Does anyone know why BYUtv doesn't broadcast in HD? I switched to Auburn/NC at BYU's halftime and could actually follow all of the plays in HD. The contrast with BYU's SD was graphic and startling . . . I though BYUtv was "state of the art."

TCU 23
BYU 29

Looks like the posting is going on the ute article, and Chris B has been silenced.

Great day for Utah football.

Ute trolls are eerily quiet.
I quess all the fun goes out of trashing BYU when your team is 0 - 4 in the PAC 12.

Looked pretty clear to me. Granted I do have an HDTV also, but, whatever.

@ We wear Blue in Ogden... we are 0 and 4 in conference but in the "it doesn't mean a thing conference" the number 54 - 10 rises to the top.....

I'd rather be at the bottom with Colorado in a conference than be at the top of nothing where nothing counts. nothing....

Please disregard my previous post. My computer "locked" up and scrambled the message. Here it is again:

I thought BYUtv did broadcast in HD. Unfortunately, my cable system doesn't carry BYUtv, so I watched the game on my desktop's monitor. The picture clarity during the 1st quarter wasn't that good. Every time they switched cameras, or as the camera panned on long plays (kickoffs and deep passes), the picture would breakup. However, the 2nd and 3rd quarters were HD quality. For some reason, the 4th quarter picture quality reverted back to the 1st quarter breakups. Anybody have an idea why?

Anyway, regardless of the picture quality, I'm just thrilled to be able to see the game after years of just listening to streaming audio from KSL Radio. We want the best, but I'm thankful just to have a picture.

Enjoy being in the bottom of the PAC-12 where the runnin' Utes will dwell for many years. Won't be long until Rice stadium will resemble a ghost town if the Utes don't start winning.

Those who rejoice with the win over lowly Idaho State can be thankful that the WAC is a bottom tier conference.

Let's see what happens when TCU walks all over BYU.

St. George, Utah

BYUtv not broadcasting in HD defeats it's whole purpose. I don't know exactly why but when you have an HD tv and watch a game in non HD, the picture is terrible. Maybe it's my direct tv and not BYUtv's fault. I was very disappointed in the picture quality and not excited to ever watch another game on BYUtv.

Well if you'd rather be 0-4 and at the bottom with Colorado, then you should be happy..........mission accomplished!

To watch in HD on a television, you have to have an HD TV, an HD tuner, and a provider that broadcasts in HD. On the Wasatch Front you can get BYUtv in HD over the air.

To watch in HD on a computer you have to have adequate internet speed. The player will optimize according to your bandwidth.

Google speedtest and use that to determine your bandwidth AT GAME TIME, since speeds vary from time to time. If everyone in your neighborhood is streaming the game or Netflix, or if you never paid for enough speed, you won't get HD.

Who cares... There going to a BCS Bowl!

Salt Lake City, UT

Remember when BYU games were televised live on KSL and replayed on KBYU at night. It was perfect, consistent and reliable for every tv owner.

Where did we lose convenience and local exposure in all of our "technological advancement"?



BYUTV is available in HD in Utah on Comcast. Dish and DirecTV don't carry the HD feed yet. Most cable/satellite companies carry two versions of each channel: SD and HD. For some reason, some carriers haven't picked up the HD feed of BYuTV yet.

My "unbiased" observations:

- Looks to me like Apo is where Hoffman was last year. Next year these two will be potent weapons. With an experienced QB, BYU's offense should look next year like we all thought it would this year.

- Glad to see Juice is healthy again. He looked good. We'll need that with Alisa's ability against TCU this week.

- Glad to see Doman realizes DiLuigi's strengths. He's not trying to run him up the middle anymore where he stutter-steps. He's obviously more effective around the outside.

- Who says Nelson can't throw? He does quite well. He's effective. Doesn't need all that zip to be effective, at least in the college game.

- I'd never noticed until this ISU game just how wimpy Jake's lower body looks. After being used to watching the athletic Nelson, Heaps LOOKED like a backup. Weird.

- Loved the way Sorensen pick-sixed ISU one play after badly missing out on that same opportunity.

- BYU played the way you'd expect a good team to do versus a weak opponent. That's good. Maybe there's some stability now. The TCU game should be fun, win or lose.

- Win the TCU game, BYU might get pollster votes.

Ok, cougars, practice is over. It is time to get ready for the real deal in Division 1 football. Focus in on this next game. This may be the toughest team you will play for the rest of the year. Show them and the rest of the world that we are a GOOD football team.

South Jordan, UT

Congratulations to the only team in the state of Utah to win a PAC 12 game so far this year---BYU!

Also, congratulations to all the 60,000+ cheering fans who joined us at LE stadium in Provo Saturday even though it was the beginning of Deer season and UEA weekend. BYU football team and coaches: never take that for granted!

I noticed they are asking fans to wear black (mourning) to next week's ute game in RE stadium. I guess that means that the team will wear black (mourning)as well. I thought red meant "fired up" unless they aren't any more.

Go Cougars!

NO BCS access for BYU.

If this 32 team super conference develops, and all indications are that it all hinges on Mizzou going to the Big 12. USU, CSU and Wyo. Etc. will all have a chance to play themselves into a BCS game every year.

What a concept, there will be four 8 team divisions and the division winners will playoff to gain access to a championship game with that winner getting an automatic BCS bid each year.

The irony is BYU will be one of about 26 teams in the FBS level that can't play it's way into a BCS bowl game each year. The teams BYU will share this honor with are teams like Kent State, Western Kentucky, Army, Bowling Green.

I hope BYU is enjoying the $$$$$ they are making as an indy. It is kind of ironic BYU will be the only team in this part of the country that won't be able to play for a BCS bid.

It is admirable that 60K fill LES every week, especially considering they will be the only FBS team in the state with no BCS access.

We executed at a higher level, but will a higher level against an FCS opponent translate against TCU...

O-town, UT

32 Team Super conference divisions.

Here would be the breakdown of the 32 team super conference according to reports.

West: Hawaii, Fresno St, Boise St, Utah St, UNLV, Nevada SDSU, SJSU

Mountain: CSU, Wyoming, Air Force, UNM, SMU, Tulsa, UTEP, Houston

Central: Memphis, Marshall, Tulane, UAB, S. Miss, Rice, La Tech, Temple

East: Louisville, Uconn, Cincy, Rutgers, S. Fla, C. Fla, East Carolina, Navy

Too Bad BYU left the MWC. They could have been in the mix every year in this set up. As an indy they won't get a chance to compete. If the joined the Big 12 they will struggle to compete.
