Due to the fact BYU isn't starting at ground zero with an entirely new
offensive scheme, the team should hit the ground running (and passing) this
season. Having a total new offense cost them at least 2 games (Virginia and
Utah) last season. I genuinely expect the team to lose no more than
2 games this year and to spend at least half the season ranked in the top-25.Objectively taking all factors into consideration, the post-season bowl
picture for our state will be similar to last year. BYU and USU will go bowling.
Though I'd like to see as many from our state as possible go, the college
team that resides between them will not... yet again. Sorry, Utah, but
your schedule says no-way. Maybe the following year... except that a probable
new coaching staff that year might prove to make that one a rebuilding year as
well. Wants and wishes won't change future probabilities by themselves. And
that's all fans can really offer online.
"Sigh... I'm not sure I'm ready to talk BYU football yet."
Hey censor, what is off topic? The word "BYU" or the word
Fun to see things happening. A good to great season is possible, but Texas will
be tough. They'll be ready and they're the most talented team on the
schedule. But USU, Boise could upset, and UCF will be dangerous.So 1
or 2 losses is expected. I'd say the over/under is 3 losses.
The Cougars will no doubt be a better team this year with one year under their
belt and stability. I wish I could say the same about the U. Having said that,
I think that Taysom will be a much improved QB from last year and the offensive
line should also be stronger. I think that receiver position is suspect as well
as defensive line and inside linebacker positions. I am curious to see the
cornerbacks will fair. Williams is a most runningback but I am worried about
his health, hopefully Taysom can take a little bit of the load off his
shoulders. Last, but certainly not least, Bronco can you please get over the
blue zone comments, that is so tacky and childish. Go UTES!!
Looking at the schedule, undefeated is a possibility.
If Taysom stays healthy...the Cougars go undefeated.
Looking forward to a better year in 2014. More experience with the new offense,
more depth at offensive line and hopefully less preseason injuries, especially
at defensive back. Schedule will be a little less this year vs. last year, but
this will help in the overall growth and confidence of the team. I don't
expect an undefeated season, but certainly better than last year, followed by
another great recruiting season. The future is bright, and I am thankful that
BYU has such a great relationship with ESPN, so we on the east coast can watch
the games. Onward and upward.
It'd be great if we could get one of those magical seasons... I know they
don't happen often but it's been like 20 yrs since the cotton bowl win
& 30 years since the NC. Our "Rivals" TCU, Utah, & Boise State
have each had at least 2 undefeated seasons in the last 10 years. Come on
Cougars! is perfection too much to ask for?
would prefer to see the offense go unpredictable and go efficient.
Yesterdays article about the ten stories to follow left out replacing Justin
Sorensen. I would like to hear more on who we have to do the place kicking and
the punting. These positions can be game changers both ways.
