    Sorry, my sarcasm was missed -- for two years we have heard ute fans beating their chests over the superiority of the PAC and making derisive comments about the mid-major MWC. So should it not concern you that a team from the very conference you have been demeaning gave you ALL you could handle?

    Re: Hawk: Question, what will the posts be when that "lowly MWC team" clobbers BYU?

    USU was listed as others receiving votes in the polls prior to last Thursdays game.
    USU has a Heisman Watch Candidate at QB.
    BYU faced the 12 rated team in the ACC.
    BYU faced a UVA QB who is struggling to maintain the starting position on a struggling UVA team.
    It's good to read your obsession with UTAH Football remains with you on a consistent basis.
    Make sure you let DN readers know your jersey number so readers can cheer for you...

    I would like to see the new slogans vs. wins statistics.

    byu will be 0-3 and Utah will be 4-0 after they play.

    Just think about:

    0-3 byu
    4-0 Utah

    Another 4-0 will be the 4-0 record the 2013 seniors have against byu.


    These are two very differnet programs indeed!

    A lowly MWC team? USU has Chuckie Keeton and he will have his team in any game. The Aggies will throttle BYU's secondary. The Cougar D line won't get pressure on USU's O line, Keeton will move around whenever he wants to find endless ways of making plays in that game.

    As for Utah's offensive woes? They put up 450 yards of offense last week.

    Interesting. I would have thought that ute fans would be more concerned about your nailbiter of a win over a lowly MWC team than about BYU (a team you have supposedly "moved on" from) and their offensive woes in their first game under a new offense and QB -- but I guess the obsession continues. At any rate, thanks for your concern, but we'll be OK -- we have the defense to keep it close until the offense can get it untracked. Still, good to know we've always got a spot in your collective heads. See you on the 21st.

    ...not to mention that UVA was the first school in NCAA football history to punt 13 times and win.

    Well shoot there goes another national title. Maybe BYU can win the state title . . . or not.

    No offense, no offense, no offense. A quarterback that can not throw and an offensive coordinator that is painfully predictable. Until Bronco wakes up from his delusional world of sunshine and rainbows, nothing is going to change.

    The offense was anemic. The coordinator is anemic and a retread. Bronco makes for a better defensive coordinator than a head coach. Hill better get better or this is going to end up being an average season with no bowl game. The hurry offense isn't potent enough to warrant its execution. Texas is going to kill BYU. It's going to be a blood bath and one of the most lopsided losses in history.
