Nothing to be happy about beating a very weak Georgia Tech team... Vegas gave
BYU a 21 point win...ON THE ROAD! Riley Nelson is one of the worst good-guy
quarterbacks BYU has ever put on the field. Had he played the schedule that BYU
played in the MWC, it would have been dismal. 27 Turnovers in 13
games? Is that right? What?Riley's receivers have to wait for
the ball, reach behind them to catch it, jump 4 feet to catch it, watch it
intercepted, and watch it go back for six points the other way. This is
Bronco's boy? And Bronco calls the fans idiots. Hmmmmm.Well,
it was nice to win anyway. Go Cougs.
@jealousSo you're picking SJS over BYU?It
didn't take long for BYU fans(?)like YOU, to bail on the team.No wonder Bronco and Brandon love to listen to your fantastic insights.LOL.
Riley's best game? Were it not for Williams, Riley would have had thrown 3
more picks. The throw before the half ended, was the worst duck he threw all
day. The long pass to Apo was so underthrown, it wsa almost picked off. On the other hand, the only pass that Lark through in the game had
velocity, accuracy, and timing all over it. Riley is a gutty player, and his
legs have kept plays alive, no doubt about that. However, he cannot advance the
ball downfield with any consistency.
I've been critical of my Cougs, but certainly give them credit for a
dominating game on all facets. But, "Mendenhall is confident his team will
continue to improve as the season moves forward." Well, of course he's
confident because by son's high school football team could beat the next 3
teams the'll play.Also, I believe this is telling: "Asked
to assess his defense this season, Mendenhall said, "I haven't coached
one like this yet. I'm very proud of them. Of all the things I do as a head
coach, I look forward to going into that room every day as kind of a sanctuary
to be with guys I consider friends, united in what we're trying to
accomplish. There's a high level of trust in there. It's a fun place
for me to be." My word, how I'd like a head coach that excited and
passionate about the offense.
RationalSalt Lake City, UTY Grad / Y DadRichland, WAbballjunkieThanks for the reminder! While Jake COULD have been
great, bottom line is, for us, he wasn't. Makes me realize that recruiting
talent only doesn't necessarily get the job done.-----You
are right. Talent alone doesn't get the job done. You also need good
coaching.THANK YOU! But let's not talk about that being the
issue...It's all on Jake right! lol
This was Nelson's best game as a BYU QB against a decent team. Agreed,
unfortunately this is as good as he gets. Still a sub mediocre C-/D+ in my
opinion. Good at rushing but extremely weak at passing with more missed
receivers and the pick 6 in this game. He nearly missed a wide open Apo with a
late, weak pass. Other than that the Cougars played a great game. If you want
someone with guts, grit, and toughness Riley is your man. If you want a
quarterback look elsewhere. Rudy, of Notre Dame football fame had those same
attributes. I don't think he played more than one play let alone start a
game. "I'd rather have a lot of talent and a little experience than a
lot of experience and a little talent". John Wooden. 10 NCAA basketball
Championships. The Cougars have wasted alot of talent this year.
WHAT NOW?"More like bye month."Current Sagarin
Rankings#22 BYU#36 San Jose State#44 UtahIt
didn't take long for Utah fans to become everything they used to despise
about "bcs" fan arrogance.
"...After big win over Georgia Tech, Cougars have bye week...".More like bye month.Including December, 8 weeks to heal up and get
ready, for the bowl game.All kidding aside...BYU by, at
least 60, in each scrimage, scheduled this November.
This was Nelson's best game as a BYU QB against a decent team. Other than
the one interception, he played well.However, Hoffman and Williams
are the stars of this offense. Williams is the best all around RB at BYU since
Staley, and he may end up being better than Staley. He is fun to watch. San Jose should be a good game, but I'm hoping we'll get to
see a lot of next years players against Idaho and NMSU. I'd love to see
Lark play at least 1/2 of each game where he can throw the ball instead of just
handing off to use the clock.I'm hoping we face either SDSU or
Air Force in the bowl game. BYU vs SDSU would draw a crowd and big ratings.
Thank you for a nice complete game against GT and J. Williams was a stud. Well,
November boring is here and we should win four more games. We should win against
the BYE team next week. Go Cougars! I'll watched GT replay next week on
espn3.2013 will be better in November. Well, of course the whole
2013 will be better.
I'll call itDon't sleep on the Spartans.San
Jose State(6-2) is probably better than any of the teams left on Utah's
schedule. The Spartan's only lost 20-17 at #14 Stanford and to Utah State
(a team that Utah couldn't beat).Meanwhile, Utah finishes the
season with WSU(2-6), at Washington(4-4), Arizona(5-3), and at Colorado(1-7). In
other words, Utah only has one team with a winning record left on their schedule
and Utah plays them at home.

heart, and also in terms of his abilities, Bronco is a quality defensive
coordinator, but he is unable to consistently execute at a high level as a head
coach, and that is how I'd like to structure this comment.
