    According to worf's logic, BYU is hosed. Oregon is crushing Virginia.

    "When BYU averages 12+ yards per reception the offense is humming."

    Spin on! Even Tebow can complete 1/3rd of his passes.

    Yds per attempt is a much way to determine efficiency.

    I think anything will be an improvement from last week. Please don't prove me wrong, BYU.

    I wonder if byu will go fast and hard or slow like last week?

    Oregon scored 21 on Virginia in the first quarter, which was more than byu scored ALL GAME.

    I noticed that Oregon players run fast and hard.

    That seems to be the key.

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

    I would be curious why he chose that strategy?

    My guess it that Texas runs fast today.

    Will byu do the same or will they take the slow approach again?

    Texas is ranked anywhere from 13th to 16th in the NCAA. I don't know that we will learn much of anything from today's game. There is no comparison between Texas and Virginia - and add to that the idea that on any given Saturday... We won't know what this team really is for several more weeks.

    The whole independent thing has hurt BYU in all aspects of sports except in money and exposure. They will not be able to recruit the really good players until they join a league. Look for a 7-5 record this year and that will be with a lot of work and luck.

    Is BYU just coming to the idea that "Since last Saturday's setback, the Cougars have been adjusting and revamping, starting with the offensive line"? Wasn't this supposed to be done prior to last week? Wayne Rout may have said it correctly, we are right back where we have been for the past 2-3 years. Saturday's game will be very telling as to where the Cougars are going for the rest of the year. Where are the changes that the Cougar AD promised at the end of last season. So far, we have not seen anything. What has happened to this program that used to produce so much excitement?

    All of Cougar Nation is looking for improvement in offensive production! We have been for years now!

    Tip for Anae; turn the page in the play book.

    I am having a change of heart today!

    I hope BYU wins!??? Why you ask? I miss Duck Hunter...

    I think he is AWOL until BYU wins and he can be proud again...

    Go Coug's

    This sounds a lot like the last 2-3 years. Make excuses for things that should have been resolved before the season started. Try to explain why poor quarterback play is not a problem. Say we are going to get better. Watch the season drift by a game at a time. We hired and offensive coordinator who could not be a head coach in Crowton. Then we hired a defensive coordinator who could not be a head coach. Lets bring those two guys in to positions they can do and hire a real head coach. Maybe things would then really improve before the season starts? We've see the best that the current head coach has to offer and "it ain't pretty".

    Virginia plays Oregon tomorrow, and we'll get a better feel for who BYU played. If it's a close game, than BYU may beat Texas.

    If Virginia is crushed, it's going to be ugly for the cougs.

    BYU will improve tomorrow but I am not sure you will see it in stats or outcome! Texas is easily 5x the team UVA was. BYU could legitimately be shut out offensively but improve in many facets...

    Texas is very, very good this year...

    “I want to find guys that can embrace the hard edge and stand toe-to-toe with anybody and throw punches. That’s what I want. That’s what I’m looking for. We’ll find it. We will find it.”

    If they couldn't "it" during the past several months, how's he going to suddenly find it this week? What was everyone doing during camps and practices?

    One stat that constantly get ignored, is the yards per reception.

    When BYU averages 12+ yards per reception the offense is humming.

    Hill averages only about 10 yards per reception until the the last big pass reception on the final play of the game.

    Anae and Hill must do a better job. I questioned bringing Anae back, they really someone like mike leach, or Holmgren, someone who really understands the passing game.

    I believe it was Doman who got the o-lineman to lose weight for his running option game, how long will take for BYU to recover?
