    I wonder if bronco will decide to have byu run fast this week, or go slow like last week?

    Oregon put 21 on the board in the first quarter against Virgnia, more than byu scored all game.

    I noticed Oregon runs fast.

    That seems to be the key.

    Do we know why Bronco had his guys run slow instead?

    I would be curious to hear his strategy

    BYU's Defense will keep them in this game and give them a chance to win. Just need the offense to step up, hopefully the changes on the OL will make a difference. Getting Hoffman back from injury will definitely help, and Apo will be extra motivated to play well. It's going to be a tough game but I expect a close game, BYU will come ready to play tomorrow and hopefully find a way to win.

    GO Cougars!!!

    I find this juvenile tit for tat really silly. Our native troll comes out from under the bridge to say something totally intended to be disruptive about Texas vs BYU trying to wrap Utah in with Texas.

    Then a solid Ute shoots him down but he comes back instead of taking counsel from a peer.

    Then a Y fan points out Utah hasn't played Texas and makes a dig.

    Then we get another Ute trying to degrade Texas as willing to play anyone if they will play BYU.

    And the Dnews thinks this is civil dialogue?
    I know, it's off topic
    But isn't all the other stuff disruptive?

    I'd hate to see a

    "Has Utah ever beaten Texas? Have they ever played each other? Has Texas ever deemed the utes as a worthy opponent?"

    That's a good question. Honestly, I'm not sure that Texas and Utah have ever played. However, I do know that Texas played Wyoming in Laramie a couple years ago. Texas will travel anywhere, even Provo Utah, and play anyone.

    As for the Coug defense, Virginia hardly proved anything.

    Something tells me Texas is as "worried" about byu as Utah is for Weber

    Go Texas!

    Hook em!

    I too am looking forward to the game. I try to be realistic and yet be positive about the team. We have a very young offense and they have a way to go before the look like the teams of the past. But I do believe they are much further along than our obnoxious resident troll thinks they are.
    I have used the report abuse button numerous times when the troll is not on topic and is just trying to be disruptive but I have only had one of his tasteless comments removed because the DNews likes to have him baiting people with drivel
    If more of us use it maybe they will get the message that we as a community really don't need his 3rd grade whining.

    Great to see real U fans thrash Chrissty. His nonsense is getting old.

    I'm so glad the DNews posted this quote again:

    "They're going to bow down to our will and we're just going to go out there and do our thing." -Jamaal Williams

    Glad it got published again so the chances are better Texas will see it.

    And that would be BAD news for BYU.

    Texas will be a great early test for BYU. I still think we're capable of a 9-3 season but several players will have to step-up. After tomorrow we'll have a real good sense of how good both our offense and defense really are.

    On a related note, the "report abuse" feature on these boards is awesome. Posts that have nothing to do with the article, the team being discussed, and civil discussion is spam and should be treated that way. Thanks DNews.

    Seriously Chris? Seriously? I am a huge Ute fan. I have little love for the Cougars but you sir are a disgrace to the Utah fan base. Have some class man! When I checked out the comment section there were only 4 all of them by you and all of them negative. Stop being a troll dude either that or grow up.

    Texas better be ready because BYU is going to bring their best game this Saturday! It was a devastating loss a couple years ago in Austin and this game could be a great opportunity to turn around the season. Watch out for the Hoff-meister!

    Ya, and Utah is worried about Weber.

    In order to have a "go fast go hard" system, you need athletes that, well, "go fast and go hard"

    Texas has them. Tons of them.

    Byu doesn't.

    Go Texas!
