Utah will be pathetic and de-lusional after playing OSU this weekend.

You want to win. I mean really be legit? Get rid of Mendenhall

Please beg the Big East to take you. We will never be able to get and keep players that can compete with the big names until you get into a BCS league. ESPN must be going nuts over their contract so lets stop the bleeding now.

BYU defense...instead of saying that you lost because you "didn't execute", why don't you admit that you lost because you faced superior talent?

Oh...and be careful what you wish for. You just may get it from a bunch of guys in gold helmets that have "National Championship" on their minds...

Do you honestly think OSU has vastly superior talent this season than the Oregon State team BYU beat in Corvallis last season? Or, the then 16th-ranked OSU team that BYU stomped in the Las Vegas Bowl in 2009 - you know, the OSU team with the Rogers brothers?

Talent is often over-rated. It's execution that really matters.

The corners line up 12 yards off the line of scrimmage, start back pedaling at the snap and still get burned deep. On most pass plays they are in a zone so they have the benefit of watching the QB instead of the receiver. It's a much easier defense to defend the pass than man coverage.
I would like to see how they do playing tight man coverage 85% of the season. It would get ugly fast.

OSU getting the Rodgers brothers gone, was a blessing all around.
Teams win when they have lots of talent, with TONS of chemistry.
It's pretty simple.

Man I hope the first string QB for Notre Dame has recovered and starts. Because I know we can't defend a 2nd string QB. He would have a career day just like every other 2nd string QB BYU faces. ;-)

I have to admit I don't understand how you can be assignment sound all season and the biggest game of the year you start missing assignments. Either that's bad coaching in not preparing your kids to play or an excuse. I saw missed assignments and was shocked by it they were out of position, Utah has fast receivers too and they weren't out of position there, so I think lack of prep on this one. Bronco somehow has to calm these guys down for the big games because they seem to kill themselves with mistakes. I don't know if they win that game or not but it should have been closer. And also figure out how to calm down Riley, he makes huge mistakes against good teams and yes that's because they're better, but he has to know to throw a ball out of bounds with these better teams, because you can't make those mistakes with the good teams. Especially in the RED ZONE! The coaching staff needs training on how to prep mentally for a game, everything else is fine in my opinion.

Its clear the BYU haters have not seen Notre Dame play.

Notre Dame is not a very good offensive team.
All their games have been very close and low scoring.

The game this weekend will be the same,

BYU WILL have as good a chance as anyone providing they don't have a QB making mistakes,

If Riley Nelson plays he will make mistakes and lose the game.

BYU must change QBs to rectify the season.

All the rest of games are winnable.

But it is clear BYU needs significant coaching changes on the offense and the right QB.

Playing hard and gutsy is not the same as playing smart.

I was very proud of us the first three quarters ot the game vs. #10 Oregon State which is now #8 after the fourth quarter whipping they gave us. I know that we were favored to win that game by 5 points and went into the fouth quarter with a tie score. History shows that we are often a three quarter team and that is what seperates us from a great four quarter teams.

The truth,

Notre Dame beat Miami 40-3.

I'd say 40 points will be four times the necessary points to beat byu.

Notre Dame 40
