Classy Bronco, calling for a knee on the 5 yard line, in a heated rivalry game. Classic. Nice job coach. Great season.

No sunburns, turf burns, or ego burns. Nice!

Bronco has a pretty good record when he has time to prepare for a team, and is 4-2 in bowl games versus pretty good competition.

Looking forward to seeing where BYU really is by how they do against Tulsa. Fully expecting a win, but in what fashion should tell us something about what to expect for next year.

I wonder what the one-onone conversations were like on the plane trip back. Bronco to Heaps; Doman to Heaps; Holmoe to Heaps. I hope Jake decides to stay at the Y and redshirts next year. He is a great talent who needs to develop some leadership to go with the strong arm.

Go Cougars!

Love those WAC wins

I hope Heaps will stick around as well. I think a redshirt year is the only option that makes sense. I love Heaps but I just don't see him getting the start over Nelson unless Nelson gets hurt again - which is likely. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out. I'm betting on Heaps sticking around to finish what he started and that he will still be one of the greats at BYU.

"Big" success? I guess it's all relative, but the stakes weren't that high to begin with so calling it a "big" success is quite the exaggeration.

You're right, it is all relative. When you compare winning on the road at Hawaii to losing at home to the worst team in D1 football then it probably was a "big success".

Wonder what BYU will do when Tulsa knocks out Nelsen and Heaps will not be playing. Untried backup.

Nope you're thinking of the pitiful Utesie QB situation. The starter isn't even good. Nice try though. We already know what happens if White the 23rd isn't playing.

Even calling the ute season a success would be a massive exaggeration.

Must have been a successful trip.

Duck Hunter... Can you do us all a big favor? Can you quit referring to the 1990 Co-Champion Buffaloes as the worst team in div-1? It simply isn't true. :) Florida Atlantic, UNM, Indiana, Mississippi, Idaho, UNLV, Kansas, Maryland and Akron all had worse records. FAU, UNM, Akron and Indiana all only one a game a piece...... How is 3-10 worse than 1-11 or 2-10?

Yes, duckie, behave yourself. That's "one of" the worst teams in division I football. Don't ever make the same mistake again.
