    Do you want me to remind you how many lineman from Utah are in the NFL vs. how many lineman from byu are in the NFL.

    In fact, has bronco gotten even a single lineman drafted in the NFL draft?

    Utah's walk ons could handle byu's line. And likely they will after the game is out of reach for byu in 2 weeks.

    Remember 54-10?

    I do!

    Walking around the stadium Saturday (before the storm descended!), I noted Texas' media trailer on the west side. I remarked to my friend that theirs was likely the only other university-level, mobile HD broadcasting trailer in the nation, with capabilities similar to those provided by BYUtv. Others have great exposure (e.g. - Notre Dame), but they don't have the same capability to do the production and broadcast.

    As I huddled under the south end bleachers as the torrent raged, I felt quite sorry for the BYU tv pre-game analysts some 50 feet away, but up in their perch, exposed to the channeled winds and tons of rain. But they (and their crew) stayed put and went WAY beyond the call of duty. Great job!

    Another brilliant comment from Chris B that has nothing to do with the topic at hand.

    Yup. If we only could've executed like Oregon did then we would have beat Va 59 to 10. Have to agree with you there.

    None of us have said that we are as good as Oregon at the offense that they have perfected and developed over the last 5 years.

    For the few of us level-headed fans, we saw that there were a lot of positives to take away from the first game of the year on the road in a very disadvantageous weather day. Yes the weather was a disadvantage for GFGH, since every time VA's defense was beginning to get tired, they got long breaks to recover. One thing you may not have picked up on was the size of VA O-line. They will be the tallest and biggest O-lineman we face all year, and yet our D handled them. BYU Defense actually handled them better than Oregon did. This should cause some concern with your less talented lineman at the U.

    You guys really should have gone fast and hard against Virginia, that seems to be the key to beating them, as Oregon handled them 59 to 10.

    Why didn't you guys try going fast and hard in that game?

    I'm just curious?

    I have to totally agree with you. BYUtv is a class act, and as someone who doesn't have cable or satellite, I appreciate BYUtv because I can watch the majority of the games after the fact, and the programming is great. Not only that, but the HD is splendid, and I've been very impressed with the graphics, shows, etc. It is very professional, and best of all, free (we use a Roku box to stream it to our television). BYUtv should be the envy of all other universities. It has certainly improved a lot since its inception, and I look forward to continued improvement in the years to come.
