"This schedule is turning out to be a really nice schedule if you look at the quality of teams that we're playing and how they're playing," he said. "I'm not sure there's been a tougher one since I've been coach. I like it." Okay, Coach. Then how about showing our national audience that you can actually compete with the "quality of teams", because our Cougs certainly haven't shown it yet. Our last two efforts have been offensive embarrassments ... all seen in the glory of national tv. Also, coach. Can you please simply go for the PAT tonight ... if we're able to score? Thank you.

We are seeing again that winning does not have high priority with much of this coaching staff.

Nelson is not a team player. Knowing he was not in any way able to play for the best of the team shows it. He lost the game for BYU with his play. Being tough is not enough to play and win. Nelson should not be self serving and realize he is not a true BYU quarterback because of his self serving play. Teams win games one player can loose games. Nelson should think of the team not him self.

Re: montanacutter "Teams win games one player can loose games. Nelson should think of the team not him self." I agree with your statement. I would add that "Coaches can loose games" by their decision making and deciding who to play. Coach Bronco is the head coach. He gets to make the decision, or at least should. Over the past 2 years, since Doman has been the OC, I'm been disappointed at Bronco's completely lack of control over the "team"-- not just on the defensive side, but the entire team. He's the head-coach.
