Chris, please continue to post if BYU goes 4-0. We will need someone to abuse.
Hi Kwis, count me in!Athlon preseason rankings. Love it!BYU #34Utes #48and this morning the sun hit that NC trophy
in Legacy Hall in such a way that I've been glowing all day!
Chris B | 1:11 p.m. Aug. 2, 2011 "Yes if byu goes 4-0 to start
the season I will never post again on a BYU article.And yes, you can
mark that down."Sure, just like you weren't going to post on
any more BYU articles for the remainder of the basketball season if BYU beat
SDSU in San Diego.Your word is definitely NOT your bond.
Chris B / hedgehogHere's an oldy but goody that we've already
"marked down" hedgehog | 12:03 p.m. Sept. 28, 2010"The Utes have at least 50% chance of going undefeated and reaching
a BCS bowl game this year."Result:humiliating loss
to TCU in the "biggest game in Utah history" - 7-47beatdown at
mediocre Notre Dame - 3-28destroyed by "girlsie" state - 3-26barely beat AFA, SDSU, and BYUUtah fans will be calling for Wynn's
head before the end of their third game.
Preseason polls are what they are, but I had to chuckle seeing over half of the
Conference of Champions listed beneath the cougs.
Hedgy"Once again you'ven decided to only take what you want
from the bloggers statement."Yep, just like you on every BYU
article.Chris BDid you ever take statistics? The
chances of BYU going 4-0 are factors of 10 higher than winning a NC this year.
The NC is subjective, decided by people with bias, and with malice. Not once has
a NCAA Div 1football national champion won it through a playoff. That makes it
impossible to calculate the odds.BYU only has to play better than
the other teams to go 4-0. I will take those odds any day.And this
brings us back to the whole "Mark it down" garbage.Since
you are not on the field, playing a position, coaching, or officiating, you have
no baring on the game. It is not up to you. It us up to BYU players.I'll take those odds too.I would much rather leave it up to them
on the field than some BYU hater on what their record is going to be in the
first 4 games.No matter what they are the first 4 games, they will
play, someone will win.Mark that down.
In recent years (since 2005) BYU hasn't done so hot in the 1st road game,
especially when the 1st road game has been the 1st game of the season( the
exception being 2009 beating OU at a neutral site, and winning @ Tulane the
second game).This game against Ole Miss is a winnable game. Like
Starfarer said, a solid wire to wire win would be nice. It would do wonders for
the teams confidence, and it would also mean that they are already on par with
execution, both of those being critical for games @ Tex, @ Haw, @ OSU, and
Chris B,Mark it down? What exactly does that mean? Is that like
saying "mark it down, because my prediction is sure to go wrong"? It's
impossible to take anything you write seriously since this isn't the first time
you've said, "If I'm wrong I will never post again on a BYU article"
and you've been wrong many times with your "mark it down" predictions,
yet here you still are. It's okay, though. I don't mind that you've stuck
around. I'd miss you if you were gone. I thoroughly enjoy reading your incessant
diatribe. Brings a smile to my face.Thanks for the laughs!
Not much of a writeup in Miss, but certainly nice words for BYU.
Reynolds is the best O-lineman in the West this year. He will likely be the
first player from Utah drafted this year unless Wagner, the USU linebacker has
an incredible year.chrisb and hedge.Did you happen to notice
who was listed 3 spots after BYU on the poll? Too busy obsessing over BYU to
notice? Take a look.I'm sure you'll both declare the poll bogus after you
see. I don't think much of pre-season polls but I did get a chuckle thinking of
a couple of squeaky, pre-pubescent jr. high voices raising their protest.
you have Chris B, hedgehog, and starfarer in here. Now, all we need is sammyg
and it will virtually be the nursery.
Star,Yes if byu goes 4-0 to start the season I will never post again
on a BYU article.And yes, you can mark that down.The
chances of byu going 4-0 this year are the same as byu going to the NC game, or
a BCS game, ever.In other words: 0 percent chanceReynolds is a monster playing for a princess team
chrissy and wedgie:utah is so great. they'll go undefeated and win the
national championship. billions of dollars will flow their way. they become the
harvard of the west. they will become national champions in all sports not just
women's gymnastics. they will be able to keep university presidents for more
than five years....You must have dozed off. keep dreaming.
Chris BMatt Reynolds plays his best and it wouldn't matter what the
season is because he is a stand up guy. He is also a leader, a man and, has
honor.You want to go toe to toe with him over his honor?Obviously you don't believe "to each his own" or you wouldn't be
trying to disparage the man.I've been marking your predictions down
for months, they mean next to absolutely nothing.You always want BYU
to fail, so there is no surprise that you want them to go 1-4, but the question
is what if they go anything else? 2-2, 4-0, what do we get then? can we call for
your head? Can we fire you?Mark it down? What do you get out of it?
Is grandma going to give you a cookie if you're right?
"It is also interesting that the writer states that this is the most
interesting game of the season. Not Alabama or LSU.""Certain trolls would have us believe that no one outside of Utah is
interested"Starfairy,Once again you'ven decided to
only take what you want from the bloggers statement. If you force yourself to
re-read the statement you'd see that "most interesting" referes to
finding out what the O'd Miss team has/or doesn't have to start the season. The
words "most interesting" would not have been used if the game was
later in the year.
I love the Old Miss article. "Push 51%" If there is honor code
violations "en mass."Good luck with that. I don't make
predictions, but I hope Jake's arm AND our secondary put this one out of reach
early.It would be nice to get a wire to wire win to start the
season.It is also interesting that the writer states that this is
the most interesting game of the season. Not Alabama or LSU.Certain
trolls would have us believe that no one outside of Utah is interested. Of
course they are always right...
