And he would've lost too

All coaches who know the game will tell you that when you are on the road, go for the win and at home, go for the tie. I get that and agree with those odds 100%. My concern was the choice of play. Although I think that BYU needs to come up with a different play than the QB draw, they have chosen to make that their primary bread-and-butter play. In this case, it was the best percentage play. Second, I would have chosen the RB rush to one side or the other. And third, I would have chosen to go to one of the many receivers they can choose from. But BYU has not established themselves as a great offensive team with lots of options, so BSU chose what they thought BYU would do and they were spot on. This situation goes to the point that BYU needs to establish who they are, with lots of options and well execution alternatives. Instead, they have told the world of college football that they have little to bring to the table. After seeing Oregon State today, I fear my team will lose often.

Everybody's hindsight is always 20/20. As I watched the game, I was hoping they would go for two if they scored. At that point in the game they had Boise State's defense on their heels, they were on the road, and home teams win most overtime games. It was a gutsy call and I believe taking a chance like that was the right thing to do in that situation. The Cougars will come back from it and I think they will have a good season. Doom and gloom is not the answer. Support the team, they won't let us down.
