Is Lavell coming back?

I just don't see the wins. Good defensive front and linebackers. New offensive line, coordinator. Winning 8 games would be very impressive. Idaho State and Mid Tenn are the only sure wins.

Virginia. Loss travel across country.
Texas. Loss too much speed
Utah. Win
Middle Tenn win
Utah State loss.
Georgia Tech win
Houston loss in a muggy offensive game as most offensive players return.
Boise loss.
Wisconsin loss
Idaho State win
Notre Dame loss
Nevada loss. This could happen in Reno.

4-8 could happen and is very realistic.

I suppose it is OK to try to guess who will win or lose, but, it can get mean and out of control. After each game the team tries to take it all in, then, at least tries to move on. Whatever happened in the game will have an effect on the next game played regardless of what is "predicted" here. So, "guessing" who will win or lose doesn't really make sense unless you believe the game depends on nothing but statistics compiled before the season begins, and whether the coach is popular with fans. That doesn't allow for the emotions, motivations and potential of the players and coaches. How many times has an athlete, coach or team been pegged wrong by pre-season prophets, only to break out and shine when the game starts? I like to read comments here because there are some very knowledgeable people here who can teach me about the game, but there are also some real "dill pickle and lemon" personalities who like to pretend the sky is falling, hoping their remarks will affect the game(?) BYU will play hard and do well. I'll enjoy AND support them, win or lose!

Yeah... After three losses in a row to Utah that fourth game is a "mark it down... in the books" victory.
