We beat ourselves for sure.
That's one thing the Cougars are good at, understanding what they should
have done to win a big game, but didn't..."when they did that, we
should have....whatever. Too much practice at that. Track record tells me I
should try to forget about this game, save myself being disappointed by Y losing
a big game, again. Must be content with beating Idaho State in football, Mount
St.Mary's in Basketball...I didn't think mediocrity would become the
BYU identity. It shouldn't be. In sports, it is.
Always with the coulda, woulda, shoulda. Give it your best coogs.
The "non" play of the game is when Riley missed a wide open Hoffman at
the 10 yard line with no one between him and the endzone. If you byu had a QB
they would have won that game.I bet byu finds another way to lose
this one though. No one is better at finding ways to lose than byu.Go Irish(my church school)!
"If you byu had a QB"(sic)"No one is better at finding
ways to lose than byu."I know I've said it before but
scratch all previous declarations. This is the new funniest, most ironic comment
I've seen on the DesNews from our funniest little ankle biting
Hmm. OSU, UCLA, AZ, USC, ASU, UO. Some schools find even more ways than BYU to
lose. It's that whole glass house thing. I like the Cougs
chances this weekend. I'm not going to "mark it down" that always
seems to go askew for the fans that use that in their comments. I'll just
say, I think there's an even chance that BYU can get a win this weekend.
The odds are pretty even.It looks like the odds on the game in
Pullman, WA give a slight edge to the home team. It'll be fun
to see how the weekend shakes out.
Remind us what happened to Utah first, and only, time the Utes played Notre
Dame.Here, let me jog your memory:Utah was curb-stomped
3-28 by a mediocre 8-5 Notre Dame team.Compare that to BYU's
14-17 loss to the 12-1 Notre Dame team that played in the BCS championship game.
ND had more rushing yards  than byu had total yards . byu had merely
66 rushing yards while ND had 389 total yards for the game.Furthermore, ND shut byu out for 3 out of 4 quarters. Not to mention 1/2 the
4th quarter still remained following this incompletion to hoffman everybody
talks about. The scoreboard wasn't even remotely an accurate indication of
how thoroughly ND whooped byu.Is this going to be byu's
"Super Bowl II" this year, where players/coaches talk endlessly
PRE-game, only to have reality utterly smash them when the REAL game in fact is
Come on AZUTE1 learn to focus. Utah needs your backing right now and you are
spending serious brain cycles reading articles about BYU and commenting on them.
FOCUS MAN FOCUS. BYU by 10 this year.
Great highlight reel. The article talks about it being a close game but you sure
couldn't have guessed it by that video which seemed to have only the best
plays made by Notre Dame.
So what I gather is that sometimes the score isn't the best indicator of
who is the overall better team? You mean that it is possible for a school to
outplay another and still lose? Quick! Let's tell the Ute fans!
The comments about a team being better than their record or losing to a team
they are better than is especially true regarding the last two BYU vs Utah
games. Last yr although BYU could have won, they were outplayed by ND especially
in the 2nd half. There was an article a few days ago on ESPN about teams that
are better than their record and BYU was one of them. This game with ND should
be a good one and will a big factor in my opinion regarding how good of a season
the cougs have for this 2013 season. A win and this season is a very good one,
even with the loss to the utes a loss and this season is just OK, not bad but
not that good either.
