    This headline is so insightful. Washington is focused on winning their bowl game even though they have had a coaching change? Say what? I thought they would be focused on completely giving up after their coaching change. Holy cow. That is crazy. They are still focused on winning after a coaching change that happened before their bowl game.

    Anyway, on a more serious note, Go Cougars!

    Looking forward to the fireside tonight and a great game tomorrow! Agree that this is a good matchup that could go either way. If BYU had either stayed in the MWC or bolted for the Big East, I think this team could have made a BCS bowl, which may have been too much too fast or them.

    The bowl itself may or may not be disappointing to some. I personally feel that this bowl is about where this team deserves to play this year. Convenient, I know.

    I'm more excited about the matchup. Some teams really got stiffed in their bowl opponent. Anybody really interested in watching the Notre Dame game?

    Of course, a few years back, 'Bama fans may have been saying the same thing...

    I like the assessment. The line will not have magically gotten better, but if we can limit the penalties, hold on to the ball, show just a little bit more creativity in play calling, and somehow spring KVN a little more frequently into the backfield, I like our chances. The fewer of those we succeed at, the increasingly harder the task becomes.

    BYU has the best bowl matchup in years. I've heard rumblings that the team was not that excited to play in the fight hunger bowl and I hope that is just rumor and not fact. I think that BYU has the chance to show on a national stage against a quality opponent what BYU football is all about. The team that goes all out and if BYU is able to stop the run of Bishop Sansky they win and move up the ladder in national recognition.

    Attitude makes a difference! Sounds like the Huskies have plenty of it even without their head coach! I hope the Cougars are heading to the game with lots of the same pride and attitude themselves. Looking forward to an exciting game. And may the better team win!

    Go Cougars!
