    TCU lost to Baylor 50-48, not 38. That young quarterback is not the problem with this team; he's far exceeded expectations. THe problems are entirely on defense, which is filled with young safeties who couldn't cut it in man coverage early in the season.

    We'll see tomorrow if that's still a problem, although I don't know if BYU has receivers good enough really to test the Frogs. San Diego State didn't.

    BYU has done well for the most part against the run. If BYU can get 1st downs to keep the d off the field and score a few points, BYU has a great chance to gig the frogs.

    BYU's defense can slow TCU down, if the offense can perform then BYU has a very good chance in this game. Should be a good one!

    Chris B: What you're saying is that honor doesn't matter and that the only thing that matters is winning games. Right? Apparently, in order to be a good athlete one has to have low moral character? Actually, having attended U of U, I can personally attest to the fact that, at that time, the moral character of the Utah Football Team was pathetic.

    Honor is more important than anything--especially winning games. And...BYU has had winning seasons and great success for many years with the honor code in place. With no honor code, Utah is currently a terrible team.

    Of course, Norm Chow is also a terrible coach. I guess Kyle has known him all his life, but he needs to get rid of him if he expects to ever get a decent team again.

    @ Chris B

    Feel better now that you've shoved the Y's face in it again? I hope so. You need this fixation to make it through the day, apparently.

    Don't cry after Saturday and your beloved Utes are 0 - 5 in PAC 12 games. In fact, why don't you go take your picture on the field next to the PAC 10.2 logo and have wall paper made for your room out of the image?

    TCU: however many they want. I'm guessing 40
    byu 10

    We'll see byu exposed again by real athletes. Bronco will continue to try and appease byu fans by convicing them they just need "better execution" and won't address reality, which is byu simply can't compete with speedy athletes.

    With the honor code in place, only 1 in 1000 true "athletes" would ever consider going to byu. And that is why you'll never be noteworthy nationally.

    So why doesn't Bronco have a winning 'system' in his program? We just have not stepped it up in the last 10 years. In addition, TCU and other winning programs would never hire an inexperienced OC or head coach. BYU hasn't led in any category statistically in years.

    Jeff Call's opening statement speaks volumes about why TCU is in contention with 2 BCS conferences and BYU is fighting to get in just one unstable one that needs members. TCU has 'got it done' on the field with several BCS bowl appearances.

    Utah has only succeeded in the MWC when TCU and other competition was weak. Now they are in a real conference and playing week in and week out, they are finding out their past success was a fluke.

    Good game coming on Friday. TCU is a very good team, but without Dalton, they are not the same. That guy was a beast.

    Cougars will have their hands full as will TCU.

    Go Cougars.

    BYU will have their hands full for sure... at least we know Riley will give it his all as he is not afraid to take hits.
    Nobody at Utah has any room to mouth off here. They are TERRIBLE.. as Rome would say HHHOORIBBLE!!

    It was so painful to watch, even as a cougar fan.. I felt embarrassed for the whole team. That O-Line looked like they just finished a buffet somewhere. They should have stopped the game for "nap time" for those oafs. The only chance they have is to suit up Brian Johnson AND Kyle AND Norm Chow!

    Not to be rude, but does anyone else think that Gary Patterson looks kinda like a toad of some sort?

    If anyone knows "slow", it would be the Cougs.
