How's this for finishing strong?--Ranked 23-Sports Illustrated"23.BYU CougarsLast week: 24BYU Cougars (6-3)The
Cougars got pushed around at Wisconsin, but the Badgers are pushing a lot of
teams around this year. BYU should win its remaining three games, but to do
that, it will have to dictate the tempo as it did earlier in the season.
Wisconsin didn't let it last weekend.Last game: Lost to
Wisconsin, 27-17Next game: Saturday vs. Idaho State"
Want to improve this team? Get rid of Anae. Let's be a bit more selective
this team about who we choose - not a novice, someone who has proven they know
how to hire the best position coaches, someone with some imagination at play
Put it on the field Cougars. The Notre Dame game is a potential win, but unless
every player gives 100% the entire game, it could end up like Wisconsin. ND
loves to push. And BYU loves to stop the opposition. I hope Anae has a better
game plan. Go Cougars!
If the o-line plays like they did against Wisconsin and the d-line can't
close the gaping holes ND will tear up BYU. Fix these two things and BYU wins
I am not quite sure why everyone thinks BYU got pushed around at Wisconsin. Did
they lose the game played at the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball.
Yes, they did. I agree with a commentor above. Late in the second quarter with
about 4 mins to go, Anae could have had some better play calling. If anything
to work the clock a bit to go in down 10-3 instead of 17-3. The wind did not
help any at all either. BYBU wide receivers had Wisconsin DB's beat on
every deep ball they threw, go back and watch it, they had 3 yards minimum on
every Wisc. DB, which means Wisc. played the takeaway game on BYU by taking away
the short underneath routes. If Hill connects on one or two deep balls, this
game plays a lot closer and tighter than it did and it still was no big blowout
like some think. My blame goes to Anae on this one, they players did their best
against a bigger and better team. Anae failed. A run on 3rd and 11, you
didn't surprise anyone, and short yards did not matter.
@UtahBruinGood point. Wisconsin just tackled Apo or Hoffman on the
times the deep throw was thrown. Flags were canceled as the ball was ruled
Nothing like Senior Day and last home game of the season against a division II
opponent!Idaho State looking for their first and only division I win
of the season. And hey, Virginia got their only division I win of
the season against byu.... But no, I think byu wins this one going
Rivalry games are never a given. Good luck to the seniors.
Last home game against a D2 opponent probably feels like a last home game of the
season vs. Colorado. Not quite the same though since Idaho State has never
Looking forward to another 10-3 year. Well done Seniors. Go Cougs!
EastCoastCoug: Anae (and Taysom Hill) have turned the offense around. I was
surprised to see Anae back, and I have scratched my head at some of the play
calls, but overall the offense is much improved. Punting at your
opponent's 33 yard line is what I have a hard time understanding, and that
would be Mendenhall. I am fine with all the coaches; they have had some really
good wins this year. Beat Notre Dame and I think this year is a fantastic
