Having speed in BYU's defensive backfield is like a breath of fresh air. Now if
the corners can mix "bump and run" coverage with "drop back" coverage that would
translate to pure oxygen.
Hair Thompson just outsmarted himself, he just lost the biggest money maker by
far in the conference.
Don't you all get tired of reading the whining back and forth? So sad that
every BYU or Utah article turns into this. And "seriously" nobody thought BYU
would "loose" to Okalahoma. Some thought they might lose, but once Bradford
went down BYU was destined to win no matter how "tight".
Does BYU have a conference yet or are they still trying to figure out exactly
how Hair Thompson managed to outsmart the brethren?Having said that,
in all honesty I see this as a close game with BYU dropping by a touchdown.
Ute4everSo big PAC 10 schools like you should have no problem beating us,
oh wait, you've only done so once in the last 4 years!So you're assuming
that you'll come in and start winning PAC 10 championships? Well you didn't beat
the champ, while a "mid-major" destroys the second place PAC 10 team....Oh
wait....that shouldn't happen...
dakuwaqa@ 10:36"UW belongs to the Conf of Champs remember,
therefore, they should have better athletes, and should be able to run and throw
all over BYU...after all, we're only a mid-major."I'm glad you Y
fans finally are realizing your place in the national landscape of college
To:bigdaddy | 1:11 p.m. Aug. 31, 2010 Coach Whitt is at 48
coaching wins. It could quite possibly happen that both coaches get their 50th
wins on the same day (9/11), (UTES win Thursday, BYU loses Saturday - both at 49
wins). Either way, it's amazing that both coaches hired in same year have near
I hope we have great defensive speed. The D is key for our season. The offense
should be good this year and great next year. Good luck Sark in returning glory
to a great school. I hope you never lose to FUN but here's hoping the Cougars
rise up and slap you Huskies down. Based on how well Wash is recruiting we
better beat them this year.
Don't worry Yewty-tooties, Kwhitt will eventually get to 50 wins....some day.
Just hang in there! It might take until the San Diego St game to get
there (he just needs 3 wins to get to 50) but eventually one of these days he'll
KramerI still am not convinced that Locker is a "great" qb, he hasnt shown
me that statistically, or in person (I was at the 2008 UW game) That game he
couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.Just because he has good size,
great arm strength, and good speed, doesn't make him a great QB (look at
Jamarcus Russell, Size, Armstregnth, lousy QB)
Go Cougars!BYU 31 - Washington 24
The U will find out next year how weak the pac-10 is. Until then we'll just
have to wait and see. BYU by 17 over te Huskies. One great qb does not make
the whole team go...see alex smith in SF. A great qb with no help.
@ ChrisI bet you are one of those naysayers who thought BYU would
loose to Oklahoma last year too. Oh wait, a typical Utah fan. Washington very
well might have more speed then BYU, but last year Oklahoma had a Heisman
winning QB and most of their starters, at least on defense, returning and they
still lost. It doesn't matter who a team has or how good they are on paper.
Every team can have either a good or a bad game; again, that's why the games are
played on the field.
Chris BJust like how Oregon States speed was gonna kill us right? Or UCLA,
or Washington (2008 with a terrible BYU defense) Arizona (2007) as well, or
Oregon's dominating speed too(2006)...PAC 10 speed dominates doesn't it?
@ Otis: U fans have been tauting the weakness of the Pac10 as well...nice try
there.As far as Saturday goes, everyone is undefeated, so there are
no "places". 8th place last year means NOTHING. UW belongs to the Conf of
Champs remember, therefore, they should have better athletes, and should be able
to run and throw all over BYU...after all, we're only a mid-major.
Otis,I think tds will lose by 21. Whatever "speed" they have won't
keep with real speed of the PAC 10.
Coach Bornco should have no problem beating the 8th place team in the PAC 10 at
home. Afterall, BYU fans love to comment on how weak the PAC 10 is. It should
be no problem for BYU.
50 wins what a milestone, good luck.
Congrats to coach Mendenhall! Almost hard to believe that he's
going to get 50 wins in one less season that LaVell!Good Luck
against the Huskies!Gooooo Cougars!
Good luck coach on reaching that 50-win milestone this Saturday.It'll be fun watching all the new, young, but athletic, Cougar talent in live
action for the first time -- and seeing all of BYU's great, All-American
quarterbacks all on the same field for the first time.
