So, if BYU loses this game, are the fans going to blame the weather again?
Today, we are all Longhorns!Hook em Texas
@ Cincinnatus - Kearns, UT - "So, if BYU loses this game, are the fans going
to blame the weather again?"Oh, I don't know.....are any
Utah fans going to come on BYU message boards and act all snarky by saying that
due to 2 straight bad weather delays that God must not really love BYU
BYU fortunately is at home for this weather delay and probably doesn't have
a flooded locker room. The Cougars had momentum last week when the game was
stopped for 2+ hours. They came back and punted.This game is going
to be great. Go COUGARS!!!!
This time the weather situation benefits BYU. Rain and muck will take the speed
advantage away from Texas and level the playing field.
If BYU does lose the game though, can we say magic doesn't happen and
weather does happen on and off the field?I should have gone to see
James Taylor with the choir at the conference center (missed it last night).
This weather thing is way bizarre with BYU these first two games.
No. I'll still blame Bronco, the quarterback and lack of offense.
Cincinnatus - The answer to your question is yes! When BYU loses it's
always someone or something else's fault! They are very picked on.
We've been gypped again, by the weather. Once again, no ESPN coverage. On
to the next game. :(
It's a good thing Oregon is not on BYU's schedule. They pounded
Virginia 59-10 on the same field the Cougars played on last week. Well not the
same field, but the same field minus the the storm the followed BYU back home
this week in Provo.
Cincinnatus Kearns, UTSo, if BYU loses this game, are
the fans going to blame the weather again?If you read the coog posts
from the Virginia game they were the only ones playing in the rain.
Excited to see athletes that go fast and hard, with Texas.Did you
see what Oregon did to Virginia? 59 to 10Do we know why Bronco
decided to have his players run slow last week?It seemed running
fast like Oregon did was the way to go. They showed that Virginia is a terribl
team.Against Texas, do we expect bronco to have his guys run slow
again?Or will they run fast this week?
It will be interesting to see if Bronco has his guys run fast or slow this
week.Oregon is playing Virgnia(byu's opponent last week) and
Oregon scored 21 points in the first quarter, which is more than byu scored all
game.I noticed that Oregon's players run fast.I
think that is the key to beating Virginia.Bronco took the slow
approach and it didnt work as well. I also think Mack Brown will
have Texas run fast.Very fast. It will be interesting to
see if Bronco has his guys run slow again.Another thing Oregon does
is complete passes.I noticed that also has helped.Someone should tell Taysom.
And its another cougar...PUNT
I think it is hilarious that byu haters read byu articles and then leave
negative comments. Why? Grow up. I dislike the utes, but I will never comment
on one of their articles. I don't even read them....anyway, quite
I think the "overconfidence" is starting to build in Provo.Texas was done 0-7 in 2nd quarter last week, and then started playing and won
easily.Same thing here...
speed KILLS, and it just make a byu secondary look like a byu
Speed is important at the corner positionAnd byu does not have itLOL!
I also think it will be hilarious if byu wins, that the byu haters will say that
it was because of the weather. Right? That's will be funny...
And the byu secondary getting..LIT UP!
And its another...Texas Touchdown!Go Texas!
b-baller,byu can't beat VirginiaYou think they can
beat texas?LOLTOUCHDOWN Texas
Was the last Time Tebow, er Hill, completion to a Texas player?
Here's my question:Which is the greater number?BYU points
in the first half?Or Chris B's aliases?
2nd half:Here comes the byu Meltdown.It's going to
be highly enjoyable!Go Texas!
@Thomas JeffersonI'm sure the Utes will show up next week for their
game with Oregon State, while BYU needs a BYE week to prepare for the Utes.
No comment until the end of the fourth quarter. Go Cougs!
I wish I could be sitting in Chris B's basement with him and watching him
squirm as the Cougars open a 13 point margin over the longhorns.Get
your momma to give you hugs Chris.. it's the only joy you'll get
So far so good as far as the game goes for the Cougs. You'd have to think
Texas will make some adjustments against that read option, and the discrepancy
of talent between UT's WRs and BYU's CBs has to be a major concern.
Good position for BYU to be in at the half, but still anyone's game.
Whether Chris B or Christofer B, people have lost their ability to foresee the
future. Fun first half. This is not the BYU offense of the 70's
and 80's, but I'm not going to complain about 396 yards in the first
half. Besides, when you have a talent like Jamal Williams, you exploit it. And
hasn't Lasike been a pleasant surprise.We can overlook a 22%
completion percentage from a quarterback (4-18) when he picks up 166 yards with
his feet, but we have to hope Taysom can start hitting his targets. With all the
talk about drops, the receivers will drop a lot fewer passes if they are not
thrown behind the guy, or with too much of a lead, or at his feet, or over his
head. Somehow he seemed to be more accurate last year.This game is
far from over, but it does feel good to have a 27-14 at the half. The defense
needs to play its best to preserve its lead.
Oh, and Taysom is still an ugly passer. Don't expect to win a lot of games
against this caliber of team with passing like that.
Chrissy B, etal., - Have you enjoyed the first half??? 27-14. Mark
it down, before you forget. Oh, and that Idaho boy is taking those Texas Short
Horns to the wood shed. Mark that down, too. Enjoy the 2nd half.
Against So. Dakota, Jake Heaps was 10-20 for 110 yards. Not sure
that means anything but ....
Hill scores again with his legs. As for passing, he needs to target Hoffman more
often. Cody is the only one that can make the necessary adjustments.
BYU is taking Texas behind the wood shed, very impressive indeed!
34-14. Mark that down Chrissy.
I was wrong. I predicted BYU would get beat badly. Kudos to Hill, Lasike,
Williams, Anae, the defense, and even the O-Line. It's been a
great game to watch . . . but it's interfering with this old man's
beauty sleep ;-).Congrats to the Cougars.
Taysom Hill with over 200 yds rushing, 3 TDs at the tail end of the 3rd qtr.Utesie trolls going silent...And an off the post FG. What a
Odd..37-21 right now, and that gimpy QB is over 200 yards rushing. Guess ute
fans can still obsess over the fact that he only has 8 complete passes so
far.But then, maybe Texas has BYU right where thy want them?
Sammy calling some one a troll? I guess he should know this ute fan is giving
credit where credit is due. I know that's very foreign to most on these
We were promised a much improved offense through Spring ball and over the
summer. Last week's game was a huge let down in that department. Seeing
what the Cougars are doing to Texas in this game gives me some hope again.The passing game is still a major concern, though.
I'm very impressed with byu tonight. They are going to be ranked in a week.
Hey Chrissy. Where are you now? Oh...what's that? BYU sets new school
rushing record. Can't wait for Utah in 2 weeks :).
Never seen this kind of one week turn around for BYU. Amazing O-line push,
running game, and KVN is impressive. Taysom needs to work on his passing
accuracy, but playing with no fear.Memorable.
Yeah, sammy there was really only one Ute troll to begin with, and I'm as
happy as anyone to see him silent. Barring an unlikely comeback, congrats to the
Cougars on a good win. Still won't be a complete victory on the day for
you, unfortunately as the Utes rolled today.
I've forgotten how good this feels, to see the Cougs out-execute a good
team. Not gonna gloat (yet), but my day is ending very nicely!Goooo
As I've said before! BYU is the only Utah team who could beat a team full
of 5 star players as Texas.
Fourth quarter lead...and BYU goes three and out....in less than one minute!!!!!
BYU is looking awesome tonight. Nice job Cougs
BYU football is back......just on the ground. Big cows can't stop cougars
feasting on them!
Good game Cougars! Next week should be fun! Both schools rolling forward! Go
Ute fans are hilarious........Nuff said
BYU defense does the job again. Ute trollers, where did you go?
Fourth quarter lead...and.....BYU shuts Texas DOWN!
Hey uties, at least you beat Weber State! They're in the same league as
Texas, right?Still laughing Christofer B?
@ youtefan BYU vs Utah isn't next week it is the week after.
Jamal Williams and Taysom Hill are doing an amazing job!If only
Taysom could pass as well as he could run, he'd be unstoppable!
There it is, kids! I need to repent of all I've said after last
B-balerHow so? Do you find it funny that we give credit where credit
is due? Is that foreign to you?
259 yds by Taysom Hill.I'm liking the future of BYU football as
Taysom matures.Congrats again to the Cougars for handing Texas a
To Chris B may I just say,.....wait for it,....wait for it, MANIACAL
Spokane UteNice comments are appreciated. Now go talk smack with
some Wildcat fans. LOL
Blame it on the rain? Apparently not this week.500+ rushing yards,
really? Nicholls State had a better defense against Oregon.Good win
regardless considering no one gave you a chance!
B-BALLER, Y "fans" are hilarious. Even when a handful of Ute fans stop
by to congratulate a team for a good accomplishment, they still gloat and try to
call people out. BYU's team today: good. BYU's "fans" today:
Good one Spokane Ute. There's no "we". There's
"you"Be sure and let us know when the rest of "we" show up
to give credit. When Chris does it, now that will be foreign. Nice try though.
@Spokane UteFrom most Ute fans, it is quite foreign to have U give
credit where credit is due. But I think what B Baller is referring
to is the silence of those that were laughing it up when Texas went up early in
Hey spok, did you say we? As in all ute fans give credit. That is why I think it
is funny....I honestly think it is 1 in 100, and your that 1........
StgtoSLC and myself both provided our congratulations on an impressive win.
Enjoy it and quit looking to be victims.
Thank you to the classy ute comments. I don't count CB as a real fan.
He's a hater, always will be. Congrats to the utes on working some kinks
out today. Should be fun on the 21st, see U all then.
upset? I'm not upset... great win for BYU!Utah Next.
From page 1 comments"Today, we are all Longhorns!Hook em
Texas"Uh, if you're going to pretend to be a fan of the
Longhorns the least you can do is get the slogan correct. It's Hook
'em Horns, not Hook em TexasOh, and LOL!Mark that down
I was wrong.Utah will still complete the career 4-0 SWEEP over
byu.And the laughing at byu will be back in force!
hockiechickSanta Monica, CA"No. I'll still blame
Bronco, the quarterback and lack of offense."Wow, I thought you
would have the foolish comment of the day. I should have waited to read the
rest of your foolish, bitter friends.
Should we mark that down, ChrisB? You didn't specify.
Chris, you just beat the WAC 2.0 and FBS teams. Leave beating Big XII teams to
BYU and a PAC team in 2 weeks.
AggieloveCache county, USAI'm very impressed with byu tonight.
They are going to be ranked in a week.-----------Is that
bye week going to impress the voters or something?Doubt it.
sammygSpringville, UT259 yds by Taysom Hill.I'm liking the future of BYU football as Taysom matures.-----------You do? His QB rating dropped this week from 72 last
week to 68 this week.In two games he's 22/66 COMP% (13/40 and
9/26 or 33%). If he continues to throw like that you better hope defenses
don't start stacking the box with 8-9 players like they did against JW4 and
forcing Hays to throw.
Hey Chris. Better be ready for the 21st. You know I'm ready for it.
Cris B.Sandy, UT2nd half:Here comes the byu Meltdown.It's going to be highly enjoyable!Go Texas! WELL I THINK YOU NEED TO EAT YOUR WORDS final score BYU 40 TEXAS 21 SO TROLL
stick that in your pipe and smoke it
Uteology"as he matures..."Reading comprehension
problems?I suppose you're one on these types that will say
Texas wasn't that good.I can play that game as well.Wildcats weren't that good either and you guys ran up the score.
I find it amusing that the trolls can come onto bYU blogs and incite anger, but
when BYU fans respond, some of the trolls i.e. sgtoslc and 24flinching become
pious and begin to chastise the BYU fans for celebrating... Perhaps it's a
search for higher ground, but it comes across as hypocrisy...I love
our Defense and I am warming up to our Offense... Taysom still needs to work on
his touch passes, but that will come...One last comment, I wish that
we were playing the uties this week instead of the 21st, I'm more than in
the mood... chris b told us that the score would be very lopsided... He got it
right, it's just that the 40 belonged to the Cougs... I only hope that his
promise about his comments on BYU logs is accurate... He promised a one year
silence if BYU beat his uties... I guess we'll soon see if he really meant
it...If you are Coug it is a time for celebration... But it also is
a time for sobriety because after Utah (with the exception of Idaho State) we
have a difficult schedule ahead of us.
I enjoyed my evening at LES. Had some fun bailing out my Dads Provo Basement as
poyman: "I find it amusing that the trolls...become pious and begin to
chastise the BYU fans for celebrating"No problem with
celebrating. It just seems sad that the enjoyment many get isn't from the
game itself, just a big "in your face" to one fan and trying to paint
the entire fanbase as the same type. I feel like I'M actually happier for
BYU's players about the win than several BYU fans even seem to be. Pretty
sad if you ask me.
Hmm? I wonder what the next month has in store?
sammygSpringville, UTUteology"as he

can play that game as well.Wildcats weren't that good either
and you guys ran up the score.---------------So
he's running abilities are mature enough for you to claim the future is
bright but he needs more time to mature into a throwing QB?Currently
according to ESPN Hill is ranked #122 out of 123 QBs. It looks like he's
got a lot of maturing to do.Virgina wasn't that good either and
you lost that game.
Nice win Cougs! Can't wait till the 21st.
@utieology... Your censor friends at DN doesn't allow anyone to disagree
with you or else their comments are denied... I have already written you a
response but the censor (probably a fellow utie alumni) wouldn't post it...
So we will try again.Your claim that Hill is rated at the bottom of
FBS QBs is eronious, like many of the other things that you have posted...
Having only played in 2 monsoons, his passing eficientcy is not going to be
great, and that's what you measured...What matters is total yards produced
(run or pass) and I am certain that he looks just fine in that area... Total
yards usually translates to win/loss better than passing efficientcy...I'm fairly confident that Hill will have more total yards (passing and
running) than Wilson will have... I am also confident that at the end of the
season BYU will have more total yards, more points scored (provided we both
throw out our Big Sky games as BYU won't run the score up on Idaho State),
and BYU will also have allowed fewer total yards and fewer points when compared
to the uties... But, we'll see.
