    Just had to comment on how nice it is to read five relevant, thoughtful comments without the juvenile ankle biters that typically can't wait to embarrass themselves by being first with the same tired nonsense they've posted on a dozen prior stories.

    Maybe it's actually dawned on them that they have enough to worry about with their own games this week. Whatever the case, it happens so rarely, it deserves notice.

    Goooooo Cougars!

    I agree, next year the secondary should be very good with Johnson & Trammell back, but then you have Daniel, Lee, & Leavitt all with experience to back them up. Then Badger & Bills at the safety spots will be good also. They could be the best secondary ever at BYU next year if they stay healthy and play to their capabilities.

    I'm looking for the offense to continue their growth in this GT game. GT has a good defense so it should be a good test. If BYUs offense can continue to improve, next year with a less difficult schedule could be special for the Cougs.

    Daniel, yes. PoVey, not so much. The key to defending the option well is to be assignment sound to make tackles in space. Daniel has shown to be very good at that. I worry about PoVey in this game, but for the most part feel very comfortable that the defense should be able to keep the Jackets out of the endzone generally.

    I'd never know Daniel or PoVey were projected to be back-ups. Both have performed admirably at the corners. No need to worry about the corners next year with Johnson and Tramell back.

    I know there was a lot of disgruntlement about the theme words on the jerseys, but I like it for this game. It is a good move in my opinion.
