    What BYU fans are guaranteeing a win over Ole Miss? I have not ready any except those coming from the usual trolls who disguise as BYU fans.

    If you can't handle the rivalry, don't read the comment boards.

    General post,

    I think BYU will be improved from last year but this game most certainly is not a guaranteed win. If I were a betting man, I'd put my money on Ole' Miss.

    Seriously, utes, does this stuff never get old to you guys? Why don't you go find a CU Buffs article and introduce your new "rivals" to your clever witticisms, droll commentary, razor-sharp hilarity and witty repartee? Go sell you schtick in Boulder, 'cause it's REALLY growing tired here. Bad form, fellas -- gotta stop living in the MWC....

    I don't even think they have to play the game according to the posts on how good BYU is. I am glad BYU is already placing this in the "W" column, but back in a world called reality, it's going to be a little tougher. I agree with anneray, you can try to prepare for the humidity, but all the preparation in the world can't come close to the real thing. Even the magical pickle juice can't solve the problems that the Cougars will face at Ole Miss. I am expecting a much tougher game and will not be surprised if the Rebels win.

    I appreciate the moxie the BYU fans have, but you may have placed the bar a little to high for a 7-6 team. Become a Chicago Cubs fan like myself and you will learn to curb your enthusiasm and guard your optimism really quickly! Good luck.

    BYU is just set to go from every position it seems. Ole Miss better be ready, because BYU sure is.

    I can only hope that BYU understands that the humidity in Mississippi is extremely high. The Cougars are not used to the humidity in Mississippi so if they, the coachs and the fans think this game is a no-brainer, think again. Five minutes in this steam room can be a killer! It's hard to breathe and I just don't know if they understand what they're coming into. I hope that someone can get to a coach with this warning. I'm a 100% BYU fan and I don't want anyone from there to be overcome by the humidity here.

    You gotta laugh when you have a BYU story with one Ute Troll unwittingly ripping on another Ute Troll.

    Troll on Troll violence. That's some serious obsession.

    Hauge is the other return man because he is a stud. It's that simple. He can blow people up. He's not the primary return guy, but has ample speed and running ability. On the other hand, when Johnson gets the ball most of the time, Hauge can de-cleat the first would-be tackler helping the real wheels on the field (Johnson) break bigger runs. I think this is the year we end the streak of years with no kick returns for TD's (although Meikle really did get one a few years ago, but was not credited by officials)

    Johnson should be a decent returner. I really don't know why Hague is the other return man. I think that it should be Jacobsen, or at least Hoffman. But, who am I to question the coaches? Can't wait for Sept. 3!

    Go Cougs!

    Obsess much?

    Can anyone say obsession?

    I agree. I'd take another "slip and slide" day off.

    Won't need too much prep work for this game. It's in the bag.
