@Chris B. Nice to see you're back. You are amusing for sure.Let's see ... Utah loses to Oregon State so this game has "HUGE BCS
BOWL and CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP implications" ...LOL - keep it
up. This is hilarious.Here's a prediction: Utah breaks even and
gets a bowl invitation to the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl to play BYU.LOL
@There You Go AgainYou said - "Playing a quick hungry team
looking to make some noise could become a problem for the Cougars."That is exactly why BYU players and coaches need this win. A win against
Middle Tennessee will be a huge plus, especially going into Logan next week
against Utah State.From here on out, no game should be overlooked by
the Cougar players, coaches and fans.@Dave SYou said -
"Wow that conference of irrelevance schedule is really picking up now. I
wonder how many empty seats there will be in LES on Saturday???"My prediction is, there will be very few, if any, empty seats Saturday. You may not give us much credit, but us Cougar fans know we've
still got nine games to go, and nothing at this point is a foregone conclusion.
Beside Middle Tennessee, we still have home games against Georgia
Tech and Boise State, and road games against Utah State, Houston, Wisconsin and
Notre Dame. Yes, it stinks losing to Utah again. I won't sugar
coat that at all. But just as the Utes bounced back after losing at home to
Oregon State, BYU will do the same.
Cougs will struggle, but win......barely.
to Dave SI expect there will be 65000 empty seats on Saturday.The
game is tomorrow night.
@chris b hahahah, UCLA is now a national powerhouse!?!? yeah right, who
have they beaten? Nebraska?? who barely beat Wyoming, Utah will be a bottom
feeder in the PAC AGAIN, you couldn't beat Oregon State at home remember?
Wow that conference of irrelevance schedule is really picking up now. I wonder
how many empty seats there will be in LES on Saturday???
christyMiddle Tennessee is a MUCH better team than the Weber State
team U played a couple of weeks ago.They're not as big or as
deep as other teams in the southeast, but they are very fast and athletic.It'll be a much bigger challenge and much more exciting to watch
than watching Utah pummel a hapless Weber State team.
@chrisbThere is huge implications for UCLA. thats it buddy. No
implications for you. I am willing to accept defeat and admit the utes won, but
lets not get ahead of ourselves. beating BYU by a touchdown and being one
holding call away from going to overtime does not put you in the position to win
the PAC 12.
Just how good is MTSU? Let's put it this way. A 2 and 1 BYU is a 22 point
Are you guys excited for the big game against Middle Tennessee? I'm sure
provo, LDS wards around the country, and Middle Tennesse fans will be watching
with great interest. Even though neither team is alive for a BCS bowl or power
conference title, I am sure there is some reason to watch the game? Good luck
to all teams!I know I'm excited for Utah's HUGE game
against Pac 12 and national powerhouse UCLA, with the winner likely winning the
Pac 12 south and a birth in the Pac 12 title game with a date against Oregon for
the Rose Bowl. There are HUGE BCS bowl and Conference of champion title game
implications in this game.
MTSU has been a solid program for quite some time and likely will finish near
the top of their league with 8-9 wins. They also have more speed than what
either Utah or Texas had, though not the same level of talent. The game should
be a challenge. The advantages I see BYU having in this game are altitude and
being better disciplined. I watched the NCS MTSU game and discipline was the
difference in that game.BYU needs to stick to its game plan and
never relent if they are to win this one.
This has all the makings of a trap game for BYU.No matter what the
Cougar players say, they and their fans penciled in a W for this game as soon as
it appeared on the schedule.If the hangover from last Saturdays loss
is still lingering...Playing a quick hungry team looking to make
some noise could become a problem for the Cougars.
Not taking seriously an up and coming team like this from a smaller school is
exactly what caused Michigan a big upset loss at home to a division II team a
few years ago. The same thing could happen to BYU if they overlook this school
who played a very respectable game against North Carolina. Considering this will also be the first chance to show fans what things have
been corrected from last game, this should be an interesting game to watch.
Being the underdog, Middle Tennessee has nothing to lose and so will be bringing
it all in their attempt to upset the Cougars.
It will be a good test. MTSU will feel the effect of the altitude, and this is
a game where 'go fast go hard' will help us, especially late in the
Whoop deee dooo
