If so, they better leave Riley on the bench and Bronco at the hotel.

I am not a BYU fan, but if lark starts like it looks like he will, it's hard for me not to want the dude to do well so that he can have a meaningful win behind him to finish off his college career of what might have been.

At the same time, there is nothing Riley Nelson can do if he plays Thursday to help his status for future remembering purposes. So in that sense, I feel bad for him because although he shouldn't have kept the starting job, I still wish his gritty self well in the battle of life and church activity. I think Bronco likes him because he is a free spirit, in some ways like Bronco, and the the church needs more of those guys.

Saying they were just a handful of plays and a few points from being great is sad. If your a great team you A) Are far enough ahead that a couple of plays don't matter or B) Find the heart to make those great plays. Notre Dame did have the heart to make those few extra plays and won several tight games to stay undefeated. BYU did neither.

The were overhyped, uninspiring and mediocre all year. Saying over and over that they were just a fews plays away doesn't make them great. It just accentuates the flaws.

The defense was great. Injury or not, Riley doesn't have the skills to start at quarterback at BYU, it is silly to paint this as just an injury issue.
