Wyoming must avoid both to have a shot at Cougars
Hey rude awakening, uh, yes we did see you guys riding around town on your high
horses. In fact, it got a little out of control. You must not remember because
it was so short lived.I would suggest that some Ute fans not get so
worked up over a bunch of Cougar fans being excited about their team. You would
be and have been excited about big wins by the Utes; as you should be; but stop
acting like you are the only ones who are allowed to enjoy a victory. By your
standards Utah hasn't gotten their noses out of the air since 2004. Careful,
you'll get a nose bleed.
I love how you kewger fans have become very, ummm...let's just be nice and say
over-confident. You beat a lower end pack-10 team. Guess what, we absolutely
demolished that same team last year too, AND YOU DIDN'T SEE US RIDING AROUND
TOWN ON OUR HIGH HORSES! C'mon guys, grow up and get your noses out of the air.
The way you guys are talking, you're in for a rude awakening.
Sorry about getting the wrong date in my last post. Still on my quest for
perfection. Cougs will not see Reed back for 6-8 weeks, but maybe just in time
for UofU game. Hope the younger lads can step it up to keep you undefeated for
the big letdown in November. Reed or no Reed Cougs will fall.
Nebraska is #1 in my book. Go Big Red (not utah either)!
good luck pokes but not this week. Take it to the Yewts.
And then every player on the BYU team will spontaneously combust so they'll have
to put their cheerleaders in too. Bring it On!
No they won't use the cheerleaders because BYU will wear out the rest of the
team. They will put cheerleaders in because even the 3rd string will beat BYU.
The starters will not play after the first quarter and the 3rd string will start
the 3rd quarter and not play in the 4th. BYU will have negative rushing yards
and Hall will throw 5 interceptions and then break his collar bone in the 3rd
The biggest suspense in this game will be to guess how many times their Pistol
Pete mascot will fall down running around in that dumb looking costume. I swear
that thing looks more weird than the Burger King mascot. I'm going with 6 times.
So wyoming will have to use the cheerleaders because the BYU team will wear out
the rest of the Wyoming team? That sounds interesting, unusual prediction, but
To Polls Are Lame Isn't it the coaches that voted LSU into the
national championship game last year after being beaten twice? I do not believe
that LSU should have been in the natinoal championship. They were an outstanding
team but come one how can you have a 2 loss team playing for the championship?
Wyoming beating BYU ??? Or Anybody for that matter !! Now THAT'S comedy. BYU wins big on Saturday !!
Wyoming is going to have a coming out game and will win 42-28. And 21 of those
28 points for BYU will come in the 4th quarter when the cheerleaders are playing
for Wyoming. BYU doesn't stand a chance. They quit paying us to throw games for
them so now we will just kill them!!!!!!!! Their money has run out and now so
have their wins against Wyoming!!!!!!!!
better take a good book or 10 and a few munchies; Weber State won't be visiting
RES until September 27th.In the meantime, you might want to check
out the game in Colorado Springs this Saturday.
Let's see; this weekend there is Florida @ Tennessee, LSU @ Auburn, everything
else, and then BYU and Wyoming but only if the world comes to screeching halt.
I prayin for BYU to turn it over 5 times. That will make this game interesting!
I will be up north watching UofU down Weber State. See ya all in November!
The cowboys will lose big this weekend. I don't know how in the world BYU would
let down after the roll they are on. I would be surprised if any of the
starters make it to quarter three. Except we might see Collie at the QB spot.
With the economy in the dumps, the cougar blue is making me smile. At least
there is something good happening in the country. Cougs #1.
I haven't seen a writer's poll yet that wasn't lame. I'm looking for a playoff
straight off the coaches votes, since they are the only ones who really know
what their voting on. The writers are nothing but fictional story freaks.
"Why would they put Nebraska at #1 if they weren't number 1?"good
questionAsk the mathematician who programmed the computer how his
bit smashing came up with such an irrational result?But, before you
do to much digging, just know that results like Colley's Matrix are the reason
the BCS reduced the role of the computer rankings to account for only 1/3 of the
BCS equation, and then further reduced the damage any single computer poll could
do by combining the results of 6 computer polls.
Pokes will shock Cougar Nation and win by 10 points. Better set your bets in
Vegas for the big fall. Utes will beat Weber by three big ones (tds that is)!!
BYU will either win the National Championship this year, or be lucky to make it
to the Las Vegas bowl. I doubt there will be an in between.In other
words, if they win out, with the way everyone seems to be getting upset this
year, BYU might be the only undefeated team playing a one-loss BCS team for the
title; or, BYU will lose 1-2 games in conference and feel lucky if they get to
play in Vegas. Anything in between these two scenarios is certainly possible,
but unlikely I think.I might be wrong about the rest of the college
football world about not having anyone else undefeated. It's just that this year
seems to be one of those kind of years. And if you look back, we haven't had
that many undefeated BCS teams over the past 10 years by bowl time. Could
So the only way for a team to prove itself classless in winning is to do it by
kicking on-side kicks and fake punts?What about leaving starters in
for longer than necessary? What about running up the score just to break or tie
a record? I am not insinuating BYU is classless at all. I just take
issue with your narrow definition of classless. It seems your definition of has
more to do with some personal vendetta against Kyle than understanding teams can
win without class for a myriad of other reasons than trick plays.
Why would they put Nebraska at #1 if they weren't number 1?
Wyoming has NO chance to even stay close to BYU - they barely beat a Dakota
school. BYU will be tested - but not this week.BYU 51 Wyoming 3
BYU needs to do what they did to UCLA against every team in order to have a
remote possibility at a nation title crack, and that is IF, and notice I put a
BIG "if" there are no other unbeaten teams left standing at the end of the year.
And we know they have class too. So the score must be about 42-0 or so at the
half so BYU can come out in the second half put up 1 more score to make it 45 or
49, and then put in back-ups on offense. In the forth quarter start replacing
starters on defense, but stay strong. WE MUST DO THIS for any shot at a national
title.The team and Bronco and fans have to have this "Crush, Kill,
Destroy" mentality, then go at it one game at a time without looking ahead. It
is not the classless thing to do, it is the necessary thing to do. If they start
with the fake punts and on-side kicks like Kyle, believe me, I will jump on the
Anti-BCS for BYU bandwagon faster than you can say I-Hope-They-Lose-A-Game!
However we know Bronco and his players, it's a quest for perfection.
will be missed, as would any good starter, but BYU has plenty of receiver
options to go to -- Collie, Pitta, George, Unga, Fui -- so I don't think Reed's
absence will have any serious impact.We might even get a glimpse at
a couple of players like J.J. and Chambers.Reed's injury also comes
at probably the easiest stretch of BYU's schedule: Wyoming at home, bye, at Utah
Ute fan here. I heard about Micheal Reed's knee injury yesterday. I thought I'd
ask the BYU faithful if his absence makes any of you worry about any pitfalls in
the well-oiled machine that is the BYU offense?Not trash talking,
only asking out of curiosity. I've noticed many BYU fans think highly of Reed's
role in the offense. Not obsessed with BYU either, I just like to gauge fans'
opinions on both sides.
It's too bad all BYU fans can't be as classy as their coach. Truly great teams
don't have to tear down their opponents in order to look good. Showing respect
for your opponent and then soundly beating them are not mutually exclusive.
As much as I despise the condescending attitude of most PAC-10 fans toward MWC
teams, I do respect the PAC-10 schools for having the guts to schedule
home-and-home series with the MWC.Without a playoff, it's the only
way a truly judging how MWC teams stack up against teams from other conference
teams. It's ridiculous to try to draw comparisons with teams from conferences
that will only schedule MWC teams at home or not at all.We need a
Final Score:BYU - 67Wyoming - 3This one won't be
close folks. Cougars win BIG !!
BYU fans need to remember civility in terms of being respectful to Wyoming fans,
whether in online remarks or at the game itself. Cowboy fans hate BYU enough as
it is for us to add more fuel to the fire with condescending remarks, which I'm
sure they've already heard plenty. However, on the field, BYU should show no
mercy. Kill the Cowboys, but please be humble about it.
I'm sure BYU would enjoy visiting Lincoln to play in front of 75,000 screaming
fans in Red and Black; it'll never happen though, because Nebraska will never
agree to a return visit to LaVell Edwards Stadium to play in front of 65,000
screaming fans in Blue and White.Nebraska NEVER schedules non-BCS
teams away from the cozy confines of Memorial Stadium.The Huskers
know that there's a good chance they'd lose to teams like BYU, Utah, TCU, Boise
State, Fresno State if they ever had the guts to venture into the cozy confines
of their stadiums.
the unfathomable computersNebraska started 2007 Ranked #19 Coaches
Poll, climbed as high as #14, then disappeared from the polls, losing 6 or their
last 7 games to finish 5-7.Nebraska starts the 2008 season unranked
in either of the human polls; in three consecutive home games they beat up on a
MAC school that finished 5-7 last season and two lower echelon WAC schools, San
Jose State (5-7) and New Mexico State (4-9) by decent, but not particularly
impressive scores.And this is the kind of resume one mathematician's
computers use to rank Nebraska well above USC, Oklahoma, and Georgia?Anybody out there who is still convinced that the SOS built into the computers
will actually help their team when it comes to the BCS rankings?
GO BIG RED! Too bad BYU isn't on our schedule...can you say upset? You don't
want to come to Lincoln and play in front of 75,000 screaming fans in Red and
When was the last time that we came out and looked unbeatable one week and got
our tails kicked in the next......? Sure it happens in College
Football, but you're talking about the cougars here, right? I can't remember any
of those situations under Mendenhall. Unless you're relating us to
the boys in red who have done that constantly the last 3 seasons, but we're not
them. So, if you can think of any let me know.
(hmmm, seems to make sense)Utah State might have a chance of going
3-0 against Nebraska's pre-season schedule.
are you like, um, totally clueless?The scoring by quarters
comparison is the actual cummulative points each team has scored each quarter
this season.My prediction:BYU 42Wyo 10
is 3-0 after surviving this brutal schedule:Sat, Aug 30 Western

done as well as Nebraska against the same opponents.
No worries, Hall and company will be setting out the last quarter and a half
again. Gaskins will get plenty of playing time.

I'm trying not to be over confident but really, Wyoming is a joke. They haven't
had a good team since '96 when we escaped the WAC Championship. BYU wins 63-7
BTW, I'm in for the 10 X UCLA...
On paper, it looks to be a blow-out. That always makes me bit nervous. We've
seen it before in the early season where we've looked unbeatable one week only
to have our tails kicked the next. Heard some talk this week about
flat practices and lots of media distractions (SI, ESPN, etc). Bronco has proven
his mettle with keeping the team focused thus far - I hope he'll keep it
Hey guys, good job commenting on 10 x 0. Luckily there are some mathematicians
in Cougar Nation or none of the rest of us would've gotten the joke.
it's all a jumbled messSep. 17, 2008By Dennis DoddCBSSports.com Senior WriterHere we go again. Nothing
looks like it did three weeks ago. East Carolina is a contender, and not just
for the Conference USA title. The preseason No. 1 (Georgia) is undefeated -- and
has dropped to No. 3. If you ranked the three toughest conferences top to bottom
right now you'd have to go SEC, Big 12 and Mountain West? Using the
European soccer model, the worst BCS conference should be relegated and replaced
by the Mountain West. The conference is coming off one of the best weeks in its
history. BYU and Utah are ranked. The Cougars have the nation's longest winning
streak (13) after having annihilated UCLA. Four of the nine teams are
undefeated. The league is 5-0 against the Pac-10. BYU remains the
favorite but not all its opponents are going to roll over like UCLA. The Cougars
have to play three other Mountain West undefeated teams on the road -- TCU, Oct.
16; Air Force, Nov. 15 and Utah, Nov. 22 ...
I don't care what our record is this year, as long as we beat...wyomoing? Yeah
right... sorry, no rivalry here.
What rivalry? The pokes hate everyone. BYU looks at the Pokes just they do every
other team in conference.
Everyone can do the math, folks.
Welcome to Provo Cowboy fans. I suggest you just sit back, relax, and enjoy the
Cougar fireworks display. It may not be quite what you could have seen in the
stadium last July 4th but I think it will be a pretty close second. Set aside
the stress of hoping for a win and just enjoy the atmosphere and an offense that
is truly a thing of beauty.
Good luck to both teams, great rivalry, nice way to spend a saturday afternoon
in our beautiful western United States
Don't forget to bring them chaps as this is going to be a rough ride for the
