Uncle Rico, Slight correction; Idaho is 1-9 overall, no need to go into
the SOS and embarass him even further. Guess he's given up on the
football team already. Sad, I think they deserve better.
Does BYU really deserve a bowl?Here are BYU's wins, and the
team's current record:Washington State 2-7 (0-6 Pac-12)Weber
State 1-8Hawaii 1-7 (0-5 MWC)Utah State 8-2 (4-0 WAC)Georgia
Tech 4-5 (3-3 ACC)Still to come:Idaho 1-8 (1-3 WAC)New
Mexico State 1-8 (0-4 WAC)
Who am I sir?The Cougars playing their final home football game
against a WAC opponent on Saturday at 8:15 p.m., 51 seasons after the WAC was
founded, will secure BYU's 8th straight bowl appearance.Fortunately, BYU fans also have other games to look forward to this
weekend:#2-ranked and #1 seed BYU playing Utah State in the opening
round of the NCAA women's soccer tournament Friday at 6 p.m.BYU
men's basketball building their resume for a 7th straight NCAA tournament
bid on Friday at 7 p.m.At least you'll have plenty of time to
dwell on spring practice with no more distractions after that exciting game
against another 10-loss Colorado team.

re: niners 8:04 a.m. Nov. 5, 2012"FYI Utah has 22 players in the
nfl, byu has 8,..."If you don't include the Carolina &
Miami rosters, The Utes still have roughly 2x as many!
Quoted from DN:The Vandals rank among the worst teams in the FBS in
rushing yards (No. 122), scoring offense (No. 123) and points allowed (No.
121).Wow..... hope you're up to the challenge coogs. Maybe if you win out this season either Michigan will look at a return
game or Northern Colorado will do a home and home with you. Snicker
Uteology,Utah 4-5 I apologize to Utah fans for making
fun of their team.
cougar76Raleigh, NCI am one Cougar willing to admit that Utah
has better talent. But, then I can also name 9 12-pack schools with better
talent than u. u do have better talent then wazzu and the buffs and should
finish just ahead of them in the final standings. In the end, I prefer keeping
the results of our season over u'rs.============I
agree, BYU would be a cellar dweller playing Utah's PAC-12 schedule, right
behind Utah there fighting it out with wazzu and buffs.
worfIdaho vs Colorado?San Jose ST vs Washington
State?New Mexico State vs Northern Colorado?---------------Simple, Colorado, Washington State, and Northern
Colorado would win.BTW, Northern Colorado is 3-6.Hawaii
1-8, Weber State 1-8, Idaho 1-8, and NMS 1-8.Now please apologize to
Northern Colorado fans for making fun of their team.
All of these comments crack me up....why doesn't everybody just admit it
that both Y and U have had disappointing seasons. Y will go to a bowl on a very
weak schedule (good thing for bowl contracts) and I think the U will still make
it to a bowl probably at 6-6...not the year anybody expected. The U schedule
overall was a stronger schedule but you need to win the games to make them
really count....next year with a seasoned quarterback is going to be much
better. The Y is getting better as well and I believe they will be much
improved next year as well.Lets wait and compare quality wins in 3
weeks....we could see the U finish at 7-5 if that happens you will certainly
have to give the node to the Utes!Go Utes.......BYU you had better
destroy your competition anything less will be a failure.
ninersSAINT GEORGE, UTBy the way that Washington state team
you keep bagging on is byu's signature win this season.______________Uh not quite, I would say that BYU's signature
win is either G. Tech or Utah State.
54-10Salt Lake City, UTGood luck Utes.U beat u'r
rival (again) and bowl eligibility of any kind is looking a little bleak.Another great season.
The season is over! Now begins the SILLY SEASON. Nothing that happens from
this point forward means anything. Stats don't count and wins are
irrelevant. There can be no measure of "improvement" anymore unless you
really believe that competing in the lower division of the WAC means anything to
BYU or anyone else.
Good luck Cougars.3 moere wins and a potential top 25 finish.Another great season.
@worfThe Utes did something that byu found impossible to do, and
there's no way to spin it:Beat their rivals (again)!P.S. Have fun playing the team ranked the very lowest of all teams in D-1
BYU did something the utes found impossible to do, and there's no way to
spin it.Beat Utah State!
Sadly. Both teams are bad and should feel bad. Unfortunately.
Whoa NellieAs far a television broadcasts go, 8:30pm on
ESPN > 8:30pm on the PACnet------------btw, I
wouldn't be surprised to see the BYU-Idaho game break the lowest attendance
mark since LES expansion, but, we'll be there to watch the somewhat sad
last BYU home game against a WAC opponent, just as we were to watch the first
WAC game in expanded LES in 1982.
Yawn. Utah trolls. I hope it makes you feel better about Utah's abysmal
PAC12 record to bash BYU's disappointing record this year.It's true that the Poinsettia Bowl is not the Holiday Bowl. But BYU vs
Boise again? Good game. BYU against SDSU? Another good game. I'll be there
either way.Utah not against anybody in any bowl? How is that better
than BYU playing in the Poinsettia Bowl?Pathetic trolls. I'd be
ashamed to troll a BYU article if I were a Utah fan.
I'll have to admit that I was happy with the announcement of the ESPN-BYU
partnership a couple of years ago. I am not so thrilled now with a game in
November starting at 8:15 p.m. That is plain lame! Utahcountyute, want to buy a
$20 ticket to see a real team?
SambonethegreatThe "cocky attitude" of fans on this board is
completely irrelevant, since none of these fans will be playing on Saturday.
Ironically, BYU's only "good win" this year (as you characterized
it), came against a team from Logan.
The Cougars will lose to SJSU with the cocky attitude I am seeing on this board.
And if the Cougars do indeed lose, then the season will have been a pretty weak
one.The Cougars seriously have only one good win this year.
This game is huge! lol Season ticket holders have got to be scrambling to get
$10 for their tickets.The cougs better watch out for SJSU though.
The Spartans lost to Stanford by 3 and byU is like 3-8 against them all time.
I am one Cougar willing to admit that Utah has better talent. But, then I can
also name 9 12-pack schools with better talent than u. u do have better talent
then wazzu and the buffs and should finish just ahead of them in the final
standings. In the end, I prefer keeping the results of our season over
@ ninersProject much? Love how "confident" you seem by
posting all of this stuff in a trolling effort. Go support your team and get
therapy for your issues.Hopefully Lark will get some time playing
against these teams.
@worf You are comparing Utahs schedule to byu's schedule and
you put Utah vs weber state? Utah is not on Utahs schedule neither is weber
state. You probably won't even grasp why that doesn't make sense but
oh well. By the way that Washington state team you keep bagging on is byu's
signature win this season.And at 24-7 if Utah had not gone into
prevent defense and allowed byu to score, and then have a "freaky" low
snap on the next possession the score would have remained 24-7. Another blow out
for the Utah byu "rivalry" if you can even call it that anymore. Also, I'd like to know how it feels to be independent. You do
realize next year after byu loses to Texas in week 1 byu is back to the
irrelevant bowl right? Byu fans have nothing to cheer for until 2014.
This will be a challenging week of executive their "game plan" for this
most challenging opponent! :o) I agree with Pa. Reader. That type of sentiment
by BYU Fans & this newspaper seems to occur with wins over lesser opponents.
A win will be a win, but these next 3 games will not do anything for me.
niners,Idaho vs Colorado?San Jose ST vs Washington
StateNew Mexico State vs Northern ColoradoGeorgia Tech
vs CalWeber State vs UtahNotre Dame vs Southern
CalA freaky hike over Nelsons head, and the utes don't win Things look pretty even to me.
Prediction: byu will beat Idaho by 30+ and byu fans will claim Idaho is better
than every PAC 12 team save Oregon. Byu fans will then claim they deserve a top
25 ranking and they have potential to go undefeated next year. Utah fans will
get on here and laugh at these remarks, and byu fans will contradict them by
saying Utahs last 8 victories over byu are a fluke and byu should have won every
one of those games. They will also claim byu has way more talent than Utah, and
have for the last decade. FYI Utah has 22 players in the nfl, byu
has 8, Utah state has 7. I still don't understand how byu fans always claim
they have more talent. I can't wait for the byu spin on this statistic...
This is the most dangerous part of the BYU schedule because blowout wins over
lesser opponents will lead to claims that the team has really progressed and
deficiencies that were exposed vs. quality teams will not be addressed. Without changes to the offensive philosophy next year will be more of
the same, or worse given the tough schedule.
Lark should be playing by the 2nd quarter, but if he isn't the starter
after halftime I will be very disappointed. I wish Hill wasn't injured.
This games would give him great experience working on his passing. Still
can't believe the boneheaded call that left him injured.
