utahcountyuteThe Utes won't hold the Wazzou under 300 yards or
keep them out of the end zone.
"BYU notebook: Bronco Mendenhall not satisfied with BYU's
defense"What a headline! Is this really news?Ever
heard a coach from little league to pros say they'll satisfied with any
aspect of their team's play.Now, that would have be a scoop!
PhoenixInstead of posting quotes that you can't back up
("inferior"?), let's just wait until the Utes play the same team
later in the year. OK?We will put the head to head to rest next
week. Can't wait.Go Utes!
Papa Smurf UTELots of spin, but of course it doesn't explain
how BYU managed to hold Mike Leach's "Air Raid" offense to 224
total yards and 6 points, while Utah's supposedly superior "Top 5"
defense gave up 399 total yards and 27 points to a supposedly "inferior"
WSU offense last season.Utah fans are famous for spamming hyperbole,
while completely ignoring actual facts that refute their pre-conceived opinions.
Byu may actually have a top 15 defense again, and I agree that their defense is
pretty good. However, it is not too hard to have a top 15 defense when last year
you played 9 teams that were the weakest of college football, and this year they
have 8. So in the regular season that is 75% and 67% of your games against teams
like Idaho St, New MExico St, San Jose St, Hawaii, Weber St, etc. Had Alabama or
the Utes had that schedule, they would have been top 5, and maybe even 1st. Bama
was probably 1st or close to it last year with a much better schedule. They
would not have allowed a point against those teams. It's not that the Y
doesnt have fast DB's, it is the weak zone scheme Bronco plays. It's
been a problem for his teams since he started as a D coordinator, and head
coach, especially against teams with some speed. Take a look at his record
against the athletic temas he has played. Not good. It is well below .500
I would say so Bronco! Giving up 54 Points against your rival kind of makes that
"duh" statement. In all seriousness though, byU's D
looked the best they have in years. I look for the game next week to be a huge D
struggle with the Utes winning it in the trenches....Utah 28byU 17Go Utes!
DennisWSC has TWO NFL-caliber wide receivers and BYU's
"slow" corners covered them the entire game.You're
going to have to invent something else to whine about this season, because
BYU's DBs this season are definitely NOT slow.
Chris B - I'm tempted to say I'm going to miss you, but I won't.
Please keep your commitment after the Utes lose to the Cougs. I'm sure
you'll be back next year.BYU 45Weber State 10BYU 28Utah 24
I love it when Chris tells us to "mark it down." It's like a good
luck charm.Good luck to both teams this year.
@ Dennis,That's quite the analysis after just one game. Did
you get all that from watching them for a few plays on TV? I think
this year's corners are the best BYU has had in a LONG time. I know they
haven't had great corners in years past, but this is a talented group of
DB's this year. Put that together with the LB's and I think BYU will
have a top 15 defense again this year.
GoBanana, No, he only said he would stop posting if BYU beats Utah, not WSU,
although he predicted a WSU win 34 - 21 "Mark it Down". That
didn't work out so well for him. Let's see how it goes next weekend.
Hard to believe the game is only 9 days away. Go Cougs!
BYU Defense = Slow, corners over commit constantly and a good
quarterback/receiver will burn them, slow, way too eager to celebrate instead of
pay attention and did I say slow.
Chris BThe only "drive to Pasadena" the Utes will make is if
they buy tickets.
Didn't you promise to stop commenting on articles if BYU won this last
week? I seem to remember something like that...
Byu, bcs, lol!I can't wait to have Utah personally end your
season essentially, while our drive to Pasadena will just be starting. I love
the bcs and being in a bcs conference!Utah 31Byu 10Riley( whose grit I really admire actually) 4 turnovers. If byu
beats Utah I won't post on byu articles all yearI will be
posting all yearMark it down!
