@johninslcActually LES is a pretty good size stage and the Cougs
play in that every home game...In fact I think it seats about 40% more people
than RES and it's pretty much full every game...Any idea on how
many ute fans will show up for the ute vs Buff game to determine who will occupy
the cellar of the big bad pac12 southern division??? Neither team will be Bowl
eligible (again) and I don't think that the manufactured "rivalry"
will bring many fans out in the snow and cold.Meanwhile... the Cougs
have been playing in venues such as Camp Randall, Notre Dame (again), UT, The
Texan's Stadium, Cowboy Stadium (twice), etc... Oh and the Coliseum and the
Rose Bowl, been there and done that a few times.
How nice that BYU can play on a "big stage" every once in a while.
Vladhagen, it's actually a very big thing for BYU this game. The refs
aren't going to fix the game but they can slow it down by taking a longer
time to spot the ball. What Coach Andersen means by this is that when Wisconsin
wants to sub players the refs have been good about allowing enough time for the
players to get on/off the field before allowing the ball to be snapped. This
hinders BYU's fast offense because they want to be so quick that
substitutions won't happen unless they are making them as well. If
you've watched the other games you will have noticed opposing teams trying
to sub players and the players will have to sprint as fast as they can to get
off the field before the next snap.
What does he mean by saying that the Big 10 officials do a good job controlling
the game pace? Like, if BYU is pounding out play after play Gary will be able to
signal to the refs and have them slow BYU down or what? "Hey boys, be extra
slow out there......maybe forget to start the game clock or lose the game ball
in the crowd...."It would seem that after the ASU game that
Wisconsin would not be super hot on the refs having anything to do with the
I'm ready too. But only tomorrow will we know if BYU is ready. Be
