I could care less if BYU is seven plays from being 21-0. And I could care less
if OSU is 21-0. They too would have lost a bowl game last year. They are over
rated this year. Of the top 10 right now, who do they beatBama -
NoFSU - NoOregon - NoStanford - NoBaylor - NoClemson - I don't think soMissouri - I don't think so if
healthy Auburn - Yes, over rated as wellOK - Yes, over rated S. Carolina - NoLSU - NoOK State - MaybeA&M - NoFresno - Yes, very over rated Mich State - Don't know, toss upN. Illinois - Just like Fresno, doesn't belong.UCLA - As a Bruin
fan, don't think so, but even my Bruins are a but over rated. Still to
youngLouisville - I don't think soUCF - It would be a good
gameAll I am saying is, I think the top 25 means nothing and people
get ranked because of name and winning against down teams and lame schedule.
Wouldn't you agree
If Utah finishes under .500 again Coach Whit may have one more thing that Bronco
doesn't have..... a pink slip.
@UtahBruinBYU is 7 plays from going 21-0. Ohio State on
the other hand is 21-0.OSU is a top 10 team. Sanford/Oregon will
beat Ohio State in the Rose, but no team will "mop" a Urban Meyer team.
Considering the last time that happened was in the 2009 SEC Championship game
when NC Alabama 32-13.I agree the Big 10 is weak but then again ACC
is even worse. At least according to Sagarin:1 SEC-WEST2
PAC-12(NORTH)3 PAC-12(SOUTH)4 SEC-EAST5 BIG 126 BIG
TEN-LEGENDS7 BIG TEN-LEADERS8 ACC-COASTAL9 ACC-ATLANTIC
@ChrisBWins against final Top 10 teams for BYU? You have one
against Alabama, and that is it. Do you really think this makes a justifiable
point. I am going to go with NO!
I'm a huge BYU fan and understand what it means to be optimistic about your
team but this article was written by someone who's been drinking way too
much blue kool-aid. BYU CAN win but it's not likely. Our best bet is to
keep it close by spreading our offense around and hoping Abby isn't able to
return from his injury. The Stanford/Oregon game showed everyone what it looks
like for a run game that can eat up the clock to stop a fast tempo offense. It
will either be really ugly or if BYU can keep it close, we might pull out a win
off a turnover or lucky break. Gotta keep it realistic. Go Coug's!
Chris BSalt Lake City, UTLOL!Go Badgers. Wisconsin
will make byu look like the regional WAC program they are.===BYU plays all over the country against different conference on National TV.When has Utah played a team in the Central or Eastern Time Zones? They
play games on regional TV on the PAC Network, which is not picked up by Direct
TV. Have they even played on National TV this season? (except when BYU pulled
them up to that level, as BYU has carried Utah the past 50 years.)You keep using that word Regional. I do not think that you know what it
means...Plays a WAC schedule, like Weber State?Have you
even seen the U's preseason Basketball Schedule?
Yeah, and Michigan State is awesome too aren't they at 8-11-8
Western Michigan2-6 South FloridaD2 Youngstown StateLost to
over rated Notre Dame, BYU I bet beats ND this year.5-4 Iowa 3-5
Indians1-7 Purdue3-5 IllinoisBattle tested aren't
theyThe Big 10 is down this year, way down. Nothing but a bunch of
over rated teams. OSU wins the Big10 and plays in the Rose Bowl against
Stanford, Oregon, or if upsets happen Arizona State, Arizona, USC or UCLA, it is
wide open in the south. And OSU gets mopped by most of these teams, especially
Stanford and Oregon.
@UteologyYou are right, I did make that point about Cal. In week
three. Northwestern has turned out to be a flat tire. Cal gave OSU all it
could handle until the end. And Cal has not been what anyone thought they might
be this year. You are right. But please, please, please, tell me how you find
OSU's 9-0 season not over rated.Buffalo 40-20, tough game for
OSU wasn't it.San Diego State 42-7, just got better didn't
it.California 52-34, take away two Cal turnovers leaving OSU with a short
field and the game is even closer. OSU still wins, but closer.Florida
A&M 76-0, Schedule just proves how good they are. WOW!Wisconsin 31-24,
finally a game of competition. And we just saw last night and at RES with Utah
and Stanford, anyone can get up for a game.Northwestern, an over rated 4-5
teamIowa, a terrible 5-4 teamPenn State, a no good 5-3 teamPurdue 1-7Yeah, your right, I am sorry. OSU is good right.
C'mon. Don't live by the polls form your own opinion.
@UtahBruinOSU is overrated as much as California was better than USC
and Utah in week three. Remmember you tried to aruge that point as well. OSU is a top 10 team and if they play Michigan State in the B10 title
game and win big then they should be in the discussion for the BCS title.As far as the article, another fluff piece. I think BYU could win if
the game was @LES, but Wisconsin at home is too home much for BYU. For some
reason, home field advantage was never mentioned in the article. Maybe ghost of Cougar past will help BYU to victory.
@Johnny,Considering Whittingham already has two(and soon to be three
with Stanford) wins against END of season top 10 teams, I like our chances
against Oregon better than I would like byU's.Guess how many
wins against bronco has against end of season top 10 teams?Surely
the guy who thinks he's going to take byu to the national title would have
a single win in eight years against an end of season top 10 team, right?LOL!Zero.
This list is a laugher. It is like cherry-picking a stat to support your point.
The sky is blue in Wisconsin and we win games when the sky is blue. Oh well,
that's what you get when fans write articles in a newspaper.
Go Cougs. Should be a great game! I hope BYU can continue to show the country
they're for real.@ChrisB will now be touting the U as having
We will win oregon because we won stanford and stanford won oregon and that
means we will win oregon. so go write it down!Go Utes!
After last nights Oregon loss, I am so hoping that BYU beats Wisconsin. Why you
may ask? Because of this lame and faltered BCS system. In my opinion, Alabama
is down, but they are the defending champ and will be until someone knocks them
off. FSU appears to be for real, dismantleing two quality opponents in Clemson
and Miami. Oregon somehow lost to Stanford, which was a PAC-12 Disappointment
for P12 representation. ChrisB should be rooting for BYU if he is a real P12
fan. Ohio State is clearly over-rated, they have played and proven nothing, and
BYU needs to beat Wisconsin to knock OSU down in the lame BCS rankings. Utah
somehow beat Stanford and we will never know how that happened, except that
Stanford just flat out laid an egg. And sorry ChrisB, you get ASU this week and
then Oregon next after this loss. Oh that is going to be ugly, or do you think
you will beat Oregon since you beat Stanford and they beat Oregon. BYU needs to
beat Wisconsin so that the best teams are at the top of the BCS at the end. Not
Byu can beat good teams, and they can lose to poorer teams. I look forward to
seeing which team comes to the field Saturday. Go Cougars. Chris,Stanford beat Oregon and Utah beat Stanford. If Utah beats
Oregon, it will prove something. If Utah loses to Oregon, it only shows that
when someone gets up for a given game and executes better than the opponent,
anyone can beat anyone. Go Utes.
Chris,It's getting a little old. It's time to face the
facts. BYU is playing at a high level and will definitely be in contention for
the win Saturday in Madison. Utah and BYU are headed in opposite directions
right now. I hope to see the Utes and Cougars in a bowl game. Go Cougs, Go
Welcome to Big Ten country, Cougars. This ain't your fathers' WAC.
Camp Randall is like something you've never seen before. Better be ready
or the Badgers will run circles around the BYU defense. Score early and score
LOL!Go Badgers. Wisconsin will make byu look like the regional WAC
program they are.
