Laudable that Bronco continues to be loyal to his QB Nelson, even when Riley is inaccurate, turnover-prone and not playing well possession after posession. From what I have seen this year, Lark is more accurate and deserved to have a shot at it again tonight. Riley lucked out with the last touchdown and then did not protect the ball with the final turnover.

Sadly, a BYU comeback that could have been memorable ended in another poor Riley turnover. Makes it hard not to second-guess Bronco this year. I like Doman, but the offense continues to be predictable. With a phenomenal schedule for next year, the Cougars have a lot of changes to make!

BYU is now 6-10 all time against the San Jose State Spartans! LoL

I think they believed the hype that the offense was getting better against a weak Idaho team.


As usual I wanted to watch the game but, the offense stinks so bad that it is too painful to watch and I changed the channel as I have done so many times this year. There are a lot of high school coaches and OCs that are much better than Doman. BYU used to be the most exciting team to watch but, that was in the Edwards era. Mendenhall promised us a return to those days but, with Doman coaching QB's and then the entire offense that dream has abruptly and painfully ended. Hope springs eternal that there will be some serious soul searching and changes made at season's end.

Why keep Riley in when they can see he was having trouble running and getting up? He is not a good QB, never was and never will be

It's hard to get on Riley's case because he did some heroic things to keep us in the game. On the other hand, most of his passes are off the mark, even though many of those are receptions due to great talent on the receiving end.

Lark may get his chance at NMSU next week, but don't expect to see the brilliant play that many of the Cougar faithful are hoping for. I hope I'm wrong. BYU's problems this year are not just at the QB position. They are really self destructive. Lots of costly errors in critical situations.

By the way, I am I the only one who noticed that most of the snaps were at the QB's feet? Almost every snap was slow and low, costing precious time to get the ball thrown. What is up with that?

in what methodology of counting is 13 more than 14? Must have opened mouth and inserted foot before the 14th point was scored... Oh well... Some people show their best intelligence by simply staying silent. Also to be noted is that Idaho had home field that day. I pretty sure things would have been a world different if SJSU had rolled into Provo. But this was an okay weekend. #1 and #2 both got knocked off and Utah dropped a gimme game at home to a team they could and should have beaten. 4-8 is a real possibility as is 6-7. Won't it be severely funny if NMSU comes in and pulls the upset? LOL... And.... Utah State is ranked for the first time since...? A great weekend in spite of the loss! :)

The mission of BYU football is not to stay relevant. It's mission is to stay competitive while adhering to the principles as laid forth by the university. Lavell built it and fans will continue to come well into the next century regardless of what happens on the field. It is time to fold up that bandwagon of getting into a conference and focusing on what is truly important in your lives. This game has captured too many hearts and has far too much focus that is just crassly wasted.
