Although I love the idea of BYU having an edge on Wisconsin, saying that BYU
knows how to beat GA-coached teams is assuming that GA coaches his Wisconsin
players to be just like his USU players. No offense to USU, but Wisconsin has
better players.BYU certainly could win the game, but although I hate
to admit it, I think Wisconsin will win this game. BYU has a tendency to lose
when they could win, although the way they have been playing lately is very
Who knows about the Wisconsin game. But The Jimmer! Free the guy. The Kings
are........bottom feeders to say the least. Jimmer will never be an all
star per se, but he could be a really good role player. There has to be some NBA
teams who could use a good spot shooter off the bench. Free Jimmer!
What a weird article. Are we saying that USU=Wisconsin in terms of talent? I
like Andersen. He's a coach who can take good players and make them better.
I'm sure our players are smarter than this beatwriter who thinks BYU can
just walk in and take the game because they beat the coach with a small but
overachieving program in the past.
"Turns out that maybe Keith Smart wasn't so dumb after all."How does Mike Malone's decision not to play Fredette validate Keith
Smart's decision not to play Fredette?Sounds like you're
trying to argue that two wrongs make a right.The truth is,
Sacramento runs a one-on-one style of offense that isn't geared to
Jimmer's spot-up, deadly outside shooting skill set.It's
like a pocket passer trying to succeed in a run-and-shoot style offense.Jimmer's skill set simply doesn't work in Sacramento's
offense, which is an indictment on Sacramento for wasting a high draft pick on a
player who doesn't fit into their offense.Jimmer still has a
future on a passing team that is designed to take advantage of a deadly 3-point
shooter with unlimited range.Free Jimmer!
I actually think that this game is going to be a lot closer than most people
think. Wisconsin I think is good, but the Big10 is down this year, so it is
kind of hard to figure out. I don't think Ohio St. is a number 4 team this
year and Wisconsin played them tough, but aside from that who has either team
played. As for BYU, I think they are starting to figure out this new offense of
theirs. I think it poses a but of trouble for Wisconsin in a run dominated
conference. Where BYU struggles is going to be on Defense, the hogs up front
for Wisconsin average something like 6'6" and 320+ lbs. That makes it
a problem for getting pressure on the QB. I am hoping to see KVN create some
plays on passing downs but I worry about BYU stopping Wisconsins run game. We
will see, I think it is close but I still think Wisconsin wins 27-21
Mike, are you serious in this article? I am a Cougs fan and root my Cougs from
afar, but how misguided can your assessment be of us having Anderson's
number/ So, out of all the previous times that BYU has beaten an Anderson team
(Utah or Utah State), when was the last time that either team was ranked in the
Top 25 at the time, and possessed the player personnel top-to-bottom that
Wisconsin has? "IF" our Cougs take this game, it will be the win of the
season-- even better than what they did to Texas, which was a home game. To
travel to Wisconsin this weekend, take on a tough "blue-coller"
Wisconsis team and come out with a win will be a HUGE accomplishment for the
Cougs. My heart says yes; my brain says it ain't going to happen.
I have to tell ya, Ute fan here but I have to give the Cougars their props. I
don't think they will beat Wisconsin nor do I think they will beat Notre
Dame. But I did not think they would beat Boise State and I sure as heck did
not think they would beat Texas. I don't know if it will happen but I
would like to see them go 4-0 to end their season and end up in the top 20. Are they locked in to the Bowl Game they are associated with or if a
better opportunity is presented can they go there?Any way nice job
Cougars and here's wishing you luck on the remainder of your season.
Mtn TrackerMy guess is in the contract Big 10 officials are not
allowed.My guess Big 12 officials will be officiating this game.And
officials don't intentionally mess games up, they may by accident.But
they are certified and if they make to many bad calls they will not longer be allowed to officiate.And they are not going to give up thousands of
dollars a game for that.
Big 10 officials wont let BYU win. They will out play Wisc on most all stats
including penalties. We will see at least one if not two byu touchdowns called
back, and not one holding call on wisc.
With all the quick, long final drives BYU has had against Gary Anderson-coached
teams look for BYU to have a lot of quick, long scoring drives all game-long
this week. Cougars by 20!
Difference this year, Mike, is that Coach GA has a lot more tools in the shed at
Wisconsin. I am looking forward to a great game, win or lose. Great
opportunity for BYU here. A win would help show that they're capable of
playing with and beating a great opponent on the road. I love the progress, but
proof w/b in the Big 10 pudding...
Bagers will win. Gary knows BYU and has better players than USU had when he was
a coach, and it helps they are playing at home. BYU will freeze to death up
there so have fun.
Quezada is the main RB at Fresno State.
Mr. Sorenson appears to like Coach Anderson and the Badgers. Else why would he
write this material for bulletin board in the Badger locker room?
Good for Quezada! He's a great kid, I'm sorry the Y lost him.And I think you're wrong about Jimmer... he's one resilient kid,
he'll not only figure the NBA out, he will excel when he gets his chance.
Totally agree alum & dad. GA would have rather been a DC than a head coach
and it was the U's decision to send him to USU.
I wondered where Quezada ended up. My take-away here is that the
UofU doesn't know which coaches to hang on to and which ones to let go
Look for byu to beat them in every minutes.
