It is great that BYU put together a good game against a good defense. Utah State
really shut down BYU's run game, but BYU was able to finally pass well
enough to make a difference in a game. I really hope BYU can continue to
improve, then they will have a great chance to win their upcoming tougher
games.It was nice to read Taysom's quote about understanding
how Chuckie is feeling. I think Chuckie's injury took some of the joy out
of a BYU win, no one wants to see a player have a serious injury.USU
is a good team and the score possibly would have been much closer if Chuckie
could have stayed in the game. Even without Keeton USU has a good chance to win
their conference, I hope they do!
I agree with Daniel Sorensen, "We see the potential; we see the talent; and
it’s good to see it all come together.” Amen, Daniel. We
know this is a great group of young men. It's good to see their hard work
pay off. Watching Mitch Matthews in practice games and seeing his success in
catching those long balls was finally fulfilled in this game. He is a great
talent! Taysom Hill is developing into a fine QB as he gains confidence and
experience. No more fumbles Taysom! We like seeing you connect on the pass.Go Cougars!
This Cougar fan has been waiting several years for some accuracy on the deep
throw. Mitch Mathews is the ideal target, runs good routes, jumps high and has
great hands.Keep improving, BYU.
I want a rematch with all our losses. We would win them all. Because we would
win we should have some #1 votes!
Welcome to the year of learning: Taysom learning to be a complete QB; Anae
learning to be a gfgh OC; 2J learning to work with a less than talented Oline;
an Oline learning to work together and to be physical on every play...so if BYU
could actually win 5 more games (GTech, Houston, Idaho, Nevada, and Boise
State/bowl game), that will be a great year. Who knows if they'll win
more...but they could if they keep learning.
I respectfully disagree with Ernest T. Bass. The Cougs should not get any do
overs and all the #1 votes should go to the red team. After all, they were the
very first in the nation to win their bowl game -- way back in September!
Not hard when the only player on the USU team went down. Guess he isn't
the "Best QB in the state" after all.
@ stang08:Keeton doesn't play on the USU's nationally
ranked defense that BYU scored more points on than any other offense who
they've faced this year. Please give at least a little bit of credit when
and where credit is due... even if somewhat difficult.@ ernest
bass:Your sarcasm has become so extreme that there is no longer
anything humorous about it. Perhaps some professional help might be helpful.
I'm not sure I saw a "complete game" out there. Too many stuffs up
the middle from our backs. So often, Hill would give to a backs and then run
out around the end without the ball to complete the "fake". Why
didn't he keep some of those, because the defense were all keying on the
handoff to the back. The field looked wide open around the right if Hill had
faked it and run with it. That would have made it a more balanced attack to me,
and a more "complete game". TH threw some nice long ones to a great
tall receiver. Now get Cody back into the game, and we might be more of an
offensive threat if GT tries to take away the run. So let it be written, so let
it be done!
USU doesn't deserve any credit. They lost because Keeton went down.
Keeton is not only the best player but the only player. So when the best player
goes down, the game goes south.
