    I have very little faith in the Cougars winning this game. The BYU coaching staff just hasn't got what it takes to play and beat the best teams in the country.

    The offense stinks, BYU has a coaching staff that runs their QB at the end of a game when he should have taken a knee and now he's lost for who knows how long, we have a head coach that goes for two in a game when just one point would have likely lead to a win, an offensive coordinator that can't do the job, and kicker that can't hit a 12 yard PAT to say nothing of hitting a critical field goal and a mistake prone special teams unit. The only thing this team has going for it is their defense and even it's suspect, not having really played any tough teams so far.

    So, BYU will lose this game for all those reasons. But mostly they will lose because they just plain stink.

    Our Cougs "haven't defeated a top 10 team at home in 22 years." With how badly our offense is spiraling, it's highly unlikely a win will come today. Bar none, the Beavers are the toughest/strongest team they've faced all year. And we're certainly not "improving" on offense leading up to the game. I'll be rooting for my Cougs w/ my heard, but my head says Beavs over our Cougs 17-9. With that being said, this game, win or lose, will do nothing to improve or deminish the Cougs' Poinsettia Bowl destination in San Diego.

    Here's to hoping for the best for Nelson. Hopefully he can silence his critics, mainly from his own BYU fan base.

    Good luck to you guys today against OSU.

    I have never heard of playing football with fractures in a back. I would like to read the opinion of this from someone with a medical background.

    Homecoming from what? This will be BYU's third home game in a row....

    Should've been against Hawaii.

    BYU would be undefeated but for Nelson mistakes. Can he play error free...we will see.
