Went to the game. Very frustrating to watch, surely more so to play. The
offensive line is the heart of the problem with this team. When QB's have
no time to let plays develop and look at multiple routes, they scramble too soon
and end up getting hurt or get sacked. Until we get lineman that can compete
with the big boys we belong in the MWC or WAC ranks.
Right on Chris B's momma. I don't care about this season anymore
because Nelson sucks too bad. Next season, Brandon better be gone and replaced
with a proven and seasoned OC. Bronco...should be demoted to DC and find
someone who can run a team and put the TEAM first and not one person (Riley is
I recall Riley being surrounded on a couple of deep drop for big sacks. They
were quick sacks, where he turned around and wham. I don't blame those on
Three keys to loss in order of their contribution: 1) Riley, 2)Brandon,
Also, just because ND misses its two short FG's doesn't mean BYU
can't make a very makeable FG. The kicking game (at least with the FG
team) has been a mess...
Right on carman.John Madden said never use your timeouts unless to
stop the clock at the end of the game or half. BYU uses its timeouts stupidly
and this wasn't the first time either. Remember the Boise game, they used
two timeouts and even when they went for two (stupidly) could have got the ball
back if timeouts were available.
How many times have the Cougs wasted early second half time outs only to need
them in the end. Today it cost BYU a minute and a half a precious time at the
end that could have made a difference. This is the third or fourth time they
have done it this year. The worst was last weeks time out first and goal at the
two. Run it up the gut and if it doesn't work, no big loss. Worst case,
spike the ball.But don't waste valuable time outs.
