    I hate it when we use teams like Middle Tenn for examples of historical accomplishments. Those accomplishments mean very little to me. I love it when we use teams like Texas and Ga. Tech for historical accomplishments. They mean a lot to me.

    @Silent Lurker - you're new to this board. Mildred is a satirist. He satirizes naive football fans posting on these boards. He got you, buddy. Welcome to the fold.

    Personally, I love Mildred, almost as much as I love Chris B. But Mildred is special. I always enjoy his comments. Chris, OTOH, is mostly just snarky. Reason I love Chris is that he's wrong so often. Fun to envisage his pain after a BYU win. Schadenfreude. I enjoy Chris B's misery.

    Oh! Mildred, do we need to remind you that Stanford, Oregon, Arizona St, UCLA, and USC are all in the last top 25 rankings. BYU lost to the tenth place Utes of the PAC 12 at home no less. Please do some research before you make such a wild statement as "the PAC 12 isn't a good League". This year the PAC 12 is widely considered to be one of the top two leagues in the United States. They have been made favorites to win all seven bowl games this year. If not for a total meltdown by Washington State the PAC 12 could have very well won all their bowl games.

    It's one thing to be a fan/supporter of your team but it is quite another to be totally misinformed. When you make blatantly uninformed statements you lose all creditability as a poster. Stick to the facts.

    Aggies need their offensive line to show up for them to win. If the line gives the QB time then they will do fine.

    Gonna be a huge loss if our play calling does not have any misdirection, or screen passes to keep the D line guessing. Go fast, go hard will be more like a ride down Lombard street

    Good to see my two favorite teams in the state playing in bowl games!

    My recollection is that BYU's offense was terrible most of last year and if BYU had had even an average BYU offense, the Cougars could have been 11-1 or even 12-0 in the regular season, knocking on the door of a BCS bowl bid.

    Lack of practices didn't prevent BYU from running all over Oregon and Oregon St in previous bowls.

    Bronco talks about how he doesn't want to use the 15 practices and that it has worked for him. My memory is that the offense was terrible last year and KVN was the reason we won - Defense. If Mr. Harmon is correct, then the lack of practices should slow down our already up and down offense.

    We are going to crush Washington because they could only finish 6th in the PAC 12 and the PAC 12 isn't a good league.
