@ mussingaroundEasy now bro, don't cannibalize fellow BYU fans.
Read this from my initial comment:"But we have a whole season
ahead of us and (like I said) most BYU fans understand that...."Why would I use "we" or "us" if I was not a BYU fan? All
I'm doing is giving accurate information, which is that BYU has now beaten
a presently ranked team when kickoff started for the first time since the Oregon
State win in the Las Vegas bowl in 2009. I'm not discrediting the USU win
from last year, that was a good win by us. The best win we've had all of
last year. In defense of Utah fans though, they did beat one top 25 team (at
least at the time they played them) since there Alabama victory in January of
2009, and that team was #25 BYU last year. In that same stretch from January
2009 to present, BYU has beaten 4 top 25 teams at the time they played them.
Those teams were Oklahoma, Utah, Oregon State, and now Texas. I forgive you for
the misunderstanding but read carefully next time. I'm a BYU fan.
Mark321"Actually Utah State finished the 2012 season ranked
16/17, but Utah State wasn't ranked at the time they played BYU in early
October of last year."LOL at the inconsistency of Utah fans.
Utah fans refuse to give BYU credit for beating then #3-ranked Pittsburgh in
1984 or then #3-ranked Oklahoma in 2009 or then #16-ranked Oregon State in the
2009 Las Vegas Bowl because none of those teams were ranked at the end of the
season, but BYU is also not given credit for beating Utah State, which finished
the season ranked #16/#17, because Utah State wasn't ranked at the time.Here's a clue: the ONLY ranking that matters is the FINAL
ranking.It's understandable why our friends on the hill are
trying minimize BYU's win over Texas. 2008 is quickly fading and the Utes
haven't had a win over an AP Top 25 team since the Sugar Bowl.
@Mark321 - yeah, that makes a lot of sense. Same team, same players, same years
of experience, same coaches, same playbook, same starters, same backups...but
BYU's victory over USU was not as impressive because pollsters didn't
have a full season to make a proper judgment. Fact is, BYU played and beat the
16th or 17th best team in the nation.I'll also give you that
BYU's victory over Texas will mean much less if Texas doesn't step up
and show they're worthy of a ranking. If they end up being the 58th ranked
team at the end of the season, then BYU just whipped a 58th ranked team, nothing
more. Rankings are worthless before about 5 games into the season.
Texas played like Alabama played in a runner up bowl game a few years back...Really?
Texas played like they really didn't care about playing a meaningless
non-conference game in Provo.
@ Ufan"Not true; BYU beat #16/#17 Utah State in 2012."Actually Utah State finished the 2012 season ranked 16/17, but Utah
State wasn't ranked at the time they played BYU in early October of last
year. The Texas victory was the first team that BYU beat that was presently
ranked at the time they beat them.
Mark321"It was also the first victory BYU has had against a
ranked team since 2009,..."Not true; BYU beat #16/#17 Utah State
in 2012.---------Poor chrissy, still in denial about BYU
complete domination of Texas.
BYU showed an element that had been missing for quite some time on the offensive
side of the ball--passion for what they were doing. Honestly, that is why Utah
has beat the Y three straight. If BYU plays with that same level of intensity
the whole season will be exciting to watch.Um Chris....Y
so Serious?In one week the Utes are going to have to play the most
passionate BYU offense they have seen since 2009. Hope Utah will be 3-0. BYU
is going to put on a clinic in just over one week and we don't have to hear
from you again (at least as Chris B).
I think most BYU fans are taking the Texas win in good perspective.Yes, it was a
great win against a perennial college football powerhouse program with the 2nd
most wins in college football history and has the highest valuation of any
college football team in the country. It was also the first victory BYU has had
against a ranked team since 2009, so it's a great win to have and something
to be excited about. But we have a whole season ahead of us and (like I said)
most BYU fans understand that, so a feeling of cautious optimism is in place. I
don't expect BYU to do what they did to Texas in the remaining games left
on schedule, but that Texas game did show that BYU's running game is a
formidable weapon and I'm sure the teams BYU will face recognize that. If
their passing game picks up as well, BYU will definitely be a force to be
reckoned with. We will see if momentum is built from the Texas win.
How telling it is that the media only talks about how terrible Texas is, and not
how good byu is. I wonder if it has something to do with what a go
fast go hard offense did to Virginia. Oregon 59 Virginia 10 Byu
really should have tried to go fast and hard, that seemed to be the key. And in little over a week byu will just have completed the 0-4 career
winless steak for Hoffman, van noy, an others against their rival. And your rival will be 4-0 and ranked in the top 25. By the way,
where are the quest shirts?Or were they not ready before Virginia?
New low of just 6 hours for this seasons quest?
