BYUs numbers will increase a lot next week. Finally they face a terribly weak
defense. Look how many teams score on them! BYU will not have a losing record
the rest of the season. The days of facing fantastic defenses are over. BYU
will not see defenses like these first four games all season, except maybe TCU,
but theirs is not all that great.
This was an important game. And it was a good win for BYU. What stands out most
for me was the continued effort in the fourth quarter.Heaps is still
weak. This game was plainly won by the special teams and the defense (even if
the D did give up a few big plays). Very good play there, especially on the
special teams.After taking a beating from Utah, BYU really needed to
come back and gain some credibility and respect. But I think the real test right
now for BYU comes against Utah State. Utah State is looking good this year, and
BYU needs to give them their full attention.Anyway, I hope BYU keeps
on winning. (I know I'm a Ute fan, but, hey, if BYU wins out from here, Utah
just looks better and better. (Assuming Utah can also keep winning.))Good luck Cougs!
No way byu beats tcu or utah state.
Tonights win doesn't really mean anything, case in point; From Jeff Calls
article; BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall doesn't consider tonight's game a
"must-win" situation. "I see this game as a chance to move
forward," he said.So I guess this UCF win isn't that big of a
deal! Its just a move forward.
Seeing the game live, I felt like BYU had a good chance to win the game as the
second half progressed.Mostly it seemed to be a better attitude, in
spite of many mistakes, by the players. I think that helped in getting the
turnovers.Note this:1. In games BYU's won, they've
played crappy in the first half, then better in the second half.2.
In games BYU's lost, they've played good in the first half, but crappy in the
second.Sounds like BYU has a new MO: start slow, finish fast.
You are still a non aq. Destroyed by your rival. Season is essentially over. I
love it. The focus of football will be on Utah and only Utah the rest of the
season as we march to the rose bowl.
BYU's offensive line out-weighed UCF's defensive line by how much, man to
man?And we racked up less than 150 yds rushing? And Jake couldn't connect
on 50% of his passes from behind that wall?I do not understand the
Cougar's offensive mindset or strategy. If it hadn't been for special teams
play, kickoff return, punt recovery, Stephenson's leg, it sounds like there
would have been real trouble "moving forward."I am all for
having a Lark next weekend.
Heaps has been outplayed at the quarterback position in EVERY game thus far.
Actually he was outplayed by TWO quarterbacks last night. Utah State will be no
different. Heaps will be very ordinary and in the end, the defense will give
BYU a chance to win. Time for Lark?
