@ekuteGive credit where credit is due.BYU is 6-2 with the 21st
ranked schedule (probably the best record a school from Utah has had against
this tough of schedule)9 out of 12 teams BYU will/ or has played will play
in a bowl (10 if you include Utah)Houston, Texas, and Wisconsin could end
up in BCS bowl games this year.No offense BYU has lost to 2 of the worse
opponents this year.BYU victories (sagarin rankings) Texas-22, GT-33,
BSU-38, Houston 40, Utah State 41, MTSU 110Utah victories Stanford-7,
BYU,24, Utah State 40, Weber 211.BYU losses Virginia-86 Utah 39Utah
losses OSU-34, UCLA 17, USC 31, Arizona 30.Looking at those rankings BYU
has some good victories, and so does Utah.
@ekuteTurn off your computer and go watch the USC-Utah game, if you can
find it on TV.
RE: ekute"None of your wins are considered quality wins this
year.Texas was ridiculed and fired their DC for losing to byu.You
baaaarely exposed a Houston team that scored 46 points on your defense."You really should do a little research before trolling. Texas is 4-2,
in the hunt for the Big 12 title, and destroyed the #12 ranked team last week.
Houston is 6-1 and will likely be ranked in the next few weeks. Georgia Tech is
5-3. All of these are QUALITY wins. They aren't incredible wins (i.e.
Utah's win against Stanford) but you shouldn't discount them. All
three are good teams in BCS conferences. Also, Houston didn't put up 46 on
our defense, they put up 30.

ekuteBYU has beaten three teams this season that the Utes have NEVER
beaten; BYU is 5-4 versus Texas, Houston and Boise St., Utah in 0-9:Texas (BYU 3-1, Utah 0-1)Houston (BYU 1-0, Utah 0-4)Boise St (BYU
1-3, Utah 0-4)
ekuteLOL! BYU has beaten THREE BCS teams, plus Boise St, and team
that has totally dominated the Utes.Utah has only beaten ONE BCS
team - a good, but extremely lucky win.
None of your 6 wins are anything to beat your chests about. OK...Texas.
Ekute:I would hope that Utah could be bowl eligible after the beehive
state spotted them 3 victories and they never left the state the first half of
the season. Their first PAC road test and they get easily beaten by a bad
Arizona team that will also struggle to be bowl eligible. I know it is upsetting
for U fans to see BYU getting bowl eligible after game 8, while Utah will have
to wait until the 4th Qtr against the mighty Buffaloes to see if they're
bowling or not.
ekute"I should hope their bowl eligible, given their
schedule."Are Utah fans really that blind or uninformed?BYU is playing the toughest schedule ever played by a team from Utah
prior to this year.BYU's 2013 schedule before the Boise State
game was ranked 24th by Sagarin.The toughest schedule Utah has ever
played prior to this year was ranked 41st.Utah's much
ballyhooed 2008 schedule was only ranked 56th.btw, BYU's
defense shut out Boise State's Joe Southwick last year; Boise State's
offense didn't score a single point.
Congrats to BYU. Good solid game on both sides of the ball. No
turnovers and forcing them against BSU made a huge difference.BSU
was nothing last night.Nice to have the bowl qualification out of
the way, now on to some serious preparation against Wisconsin.Go
I should hope their bowl eligible, given their schedule.
I would like a comment above if it wasn't for the 'those who whine
about injuries' statement. I bleed at the loss of Keaton that USU has
suffered during a game against the Cougars. I was so hopeful that the serious
question of questions was going to be yes, that USU can still win with their
greener pastures departing head coach that got them consistently winning and
winning big. But now... Only a route of a struggling New Mexico has happened
since that fateful moment. I am hopeful it will pan out to more W's for
them, but I am subject to the reality that is staring before us... It is simply
too early to tell if Keaton is or isn't Utah State... For 2 straight games
it was definitely yes... UNM has the hope churning once again that it will be
A1994:BYU will go bowling and "the best team in the state"
will be sitting at home watching the game. lol
A1994Centerville, UT thats all you ute fans care about beat byu and your
team is the best team in the state well i have news for you 1 game does not a
season make,unless it,s utah beating byu ,who has the better record at this
time its not utah or UTAH STATE,get ur facts straight before you post.
Good thing for Utah that they caught BYU early in the year, before Hill &
Co. knew what they were doing. BYU has clearly shown, as I am sure the national
press will substantiate by the rankings, that they are the best college football
team in the Beehive state.As far as those who whine about injuries
all I can say is whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
@ A1994 - Centerville, UT - @WJCoug - "BYU is proving why they are the best
team in the state."Except that they are NOT the best team in the
state. They got beat soundly by Utah...."Puh-leeease. BYU
didn't get beat "soundly" by Utah. The game was in question until
the very last play of the game. Where do you guys come up with this stuff?"....and they (BYU) played Utah State without Chuckie
Keeton.".....and we were throttling Utah State even WITH Chuckie
Keeton in. And Keeton doesn't play defense. Go watch the tapes."And tonight they are playing BSU who is without THEIR starting
QB."So IF Utah beats USC (while the Trojans will play without
their star WR) are YOU going to say "Well, yeah, we beat USC without their
star wide receiver...." Didn't think so.
A nice all around show from the best QB in the state tonight, much to the dismay
of Chrissy B.
A1994Centerville, UTIt could.Or, the cougs just
might prove that they have been getting better and better. Good metric late in
@WJCoug"BYU is proving why they are the best team in the
state."Except that they are NOT the best team in the state.
They got beat soundly by Utah and they played Utah State without Chuckie Keeton.
And tonight they are playing BSU who is without THEIR starting QB. I think
that when BYU goes to Wisconsin, it could get very ugly for them very fast.
BYU's offense has been impressive. Very impressive.
What is it with BYU second halves? 11 minutes left and BYU has one fieldgoal
and four three and outs. Putting too much pressure on the defense. BSU will
make this a close game if they can hang on to the ball. Anae better quit trying
to run so much or BSU will show him how to play second half football.
Throw on first down with a play action pass.They need to keep the pedal down.
They should not play so conservative in the second half giving the other team
I hate it when Anae does this. Well we have a lead lets go conservative and hope
we don't have 3 & outs. Drives me nuts!
Time for anae to go conservative
Great start, but BSU's coaches and players aren't stupid, they will
adjust and come out better. BYU will likely have very little adjustment because
of the success of the 1st half so we will have to see how it goes in the 2nd
half.But happy for the Cougars so far, go Cougars!
A shame that Boise is without Southwick and can't perform at full
potential. Of course Southwick doesn't affect the defense being gashed by
BYU is proving why they are the best team in the state. Should be undefeated
but it has taken time for the offense to gel. Next game against Wisconsin, by
far the best team they will play, will tell how good this team really is.Go Cougars!
5:55 left in 2nd qtr: Boise state throws and BYU called for PI. Totally blown
call. Replay from 2 different angles showed contact was limited and both were
going for the ball. These refs are blind.GG COUGARS!
1000 yards of total offense.100 points...0 Sacks,
interceptions or fumbles.Said a boise state player: They remind me
of a PAC-12 team with how tough and physical they play on defense.Debate away! :)Quotation marks get a comment denied? Where is this
off topic, etc etc? Oh, I know... BSU decided to send their powder puff team
down instead of the men... And hence 100 points and 1000 yards is unattainable
due to the pure sportsmanship of the Cougs... Although, at the fevered pace of
the first quarter, they could easily score 100 points on 1000 yards of offense!
It could happen... The trouble of the 1st quarter was 3 minutes on drive one
ending in zero points.
9:31 left in the 2nd quarter: BYU driving and on 3rd down Boise State DB grabbed
Hoffman's jersey and slow him down to prevent the catch. Replay showed the
defensive pass interference as plain as day. He stretched Hoffman's jersey
at least 6 inches. Totally blown call.Also, while
I'm on the subject of blown calls, what the heck is up with Skyler Ridley
being held out for the 1st half due to "targeting" in last week's
game?Saw the Ridley replay and all he did was lower his head about 6
inches to protect the ball.That's OK....blown calls, it
doesn't matter. We're going to beat you anyway.Go
BYU totally dominating boise. No surprise at all. Boise's defense is
terrible on the road.
