    USU doesn't deserve any credit. They lost because Keeton went down. Keeton is not only the best player but the only player. So when the best player goes down, the game goes south.

    I'm not sure I saw a "complete game" out there. Too many stuffs up the middle from our backs. So often, Hill would give to a backs and then run out around the end without the ball to complete the "fake". Why didn't he keep some of those, because the defense were all keying on the handoff to the back. The field looked wide open around the right if Hill had faked it and run with it. That would have made it a more balanced attack to me, and a more "complete game". TH threw some nice long ones to a great tall receiver. Now get Cody back into the game, and we might be more of an offensive threat if GT tries to take away the run. So let it be written, so let it be done!

    @ stang08:

    Keeton doesn't play on the USU's nationally ranked defense that BYU scored more points on than any other offense who they've faced this year. Please give at least a little bit of credit when and where credit is due... even if somewhat difficult.

    @ ernest bass:

    Your sarcasm has become so extreme that there is no longer anything humorous about it. Perhaps some professional help might be helpful.

    Not hard when the only player on the USU team went down. Guess he isn't the "Best QB in the state" after all.

    I respectfully disagree with Ernest T. Bass. The Cougs should not get any do overs and all the #1 votes should go to the red team. After all, they were the very first in the nation to win their bowl game -- way back in September!

    Welcome to the year of learning: Taysom learning to be a complete QB; Anae learning to be a gfgh OC; 2J learning to work with a less than talented Oline; an Oline learning to work together and to be physical on every if BYU could actually win 5 more games (GTech, Houston, Idaho, Nevada, and Boise State/bowl game), that will be a great year. Who knows if they'll win more...but they could if they keep learning.

    I want a rematch with all our losses. We would win them all. Because we would win we should have some #1 votes!

    This Cougar fan has been waiting several years for some accuracy on the deep throw. Mitch Mathews is the ideal target, runs good routes, jumps high and has great hands.

    Keep improving, BYU.

    I agree with Daniel Sorensen, "We see the potential; we see the talent; and it’s good to see it all come together.” Amen, Daniel.

    We know this is a great group of young men. It's good to see their hard work pay off. Watching Mitch Matthews in practice games and seeing his success in catching those long balls was finally fulfilled in this game. He is a great talent! Taysom Hill is developing into a fine QB as he gains confidence and experience. No more fumbles Taysom! We like seeing you connect on the pass.

    Go Cougars!

    It is great that BYU put together a good game against a good defense. Utah State really shut down BYU's run game, but BYU was able to finally pass well enough to make a difference in a game. I really hope BYU can continue to improve, then they will have a great chance to win their upcoming tougher games.

    It was nice to read Taysom's quote about understanding how Chuckie is feeling. I think Chuckie's injury took some of the joy out of a BYU win, no one wants to see a player have a serious injury.

    USU is a good team and the score possibly would have been much closer if Chuckie could have stayed in the game. Even without Keeton USU has a good chance to win their conference, I hope they do!
