    Offensive line, Riley Nelson. Same problems as before. BYUtv color guys commented afterward that .."we just have to count on a couple of bad passes from Riley each game...". WHY???? I like a lot of things about Riley, but he is NOT a big game quarterback, and his short runs in the midfield, while entertaining, are not enough to produce wins when throwing the ball away 2 -3 times per game. .. I suspect that James Lark (or maybe Alex Kuresa?)could have done no worse with the ball. Likely better. Let's not sacrifice the next two games on the alter of what we wish Riley could do; there are several well reputed players who well may outperform his charitable passing habits...we haven't got much to lose by giving them a shot, and are likely to lose it anyway if we stay on Nelson Road..

    It most certainly does indicate how competitive they were. The game is 4 quarters, and it was tied going into the 4th quarter. They didn't compete in the 4th quarter. They were outplayed on both sides of the ball. Their defense is supposed to be the strength of their team and their strength failed them by giving up as many points in the 4th quarter as they did the previous three.
