    I don't care about any of the hype about Utah (please note I spelled it with some respect). I don't comment on articles about Utah (waste of time) but answer me this Ken, which of your quarterbacks are on the Heisman watch list? I will give you a small hint, it is less than 1. I don't worry about the Utes quarterbacks, but I suggest you should and stop wasting your and our time posting on BYU articles.

    As long as Robert Anae is the OC, I'm not holding out much hope. He tends to get too predictable at times...

    Your prediction is a little high for the utes. 6-6 would be the best case with 4-8 the most likely outcome

    As soon as Bronco finds(and plays) a QB who can throw the ball, I'll start to believe at least a portion of the hype. Until then, we'll see byU continue to be a very average team who beats up on mostly very bad teams.

    As always, go Utes!!

    I hope I'm wrong, but I'm just not feelin' with this offense.

    I wouldn't worry too much about fall camp scrimmages and what we saw (or didn't see) during those sessions. Having played football in the heat during the fall, it's brutal at times and grueling and sometimes you lose a little focus or you're just tired. It's not like a game where you're amped up and ready to hit someone else besides the guys you've been up against all month.

    What I do know is BYU seems more athletic, faster, and more dynamic at the skilled positions, and the O-line looks improved from a year ago. With those upgrades BYU will be fine, and be better offensively than last year...don't worry about what happened in the scrimmage. Defensively I have some concerns but if players step up at certain positions I'm confident they'll be fine on that side of the ball as well. Friday...get here already!

    Time to make predictions for the year.

    Utah I think will be 6 and 6. Worst case scenario 5 and 7. Best case 8 and 4.

    BYU I think will end up at 9 and 3. Worst case scenario 7 and 5. Best case 10 and 2.

    Utah State I think ends up at 10 and 2. Worst case 7 and 5. Best case 11 and 1.

    I read this somewhere and I wasn't sure what to think of this opinion, but I now kind of agree that it would be good for Nick Kurtz to redshirt this season. There are just so many other guys who can play right now, a few of which will be leaving next year, and it will just mean more room on the depth chart for him next year and the year after that. That's my opinion now at least. In the mean time, it will be exciting to see what the other guys can do.

    Go Cougars!

    I agree with CT98. Taysom Hill didn't play his best, but everybody has an off-night. I will be surprised if it happens more than once or twice this season.

    I was pleasantly surprised with some of the receivers. Between an improved OL, improved passing accuracy, and better WRs I think we can expect a much improved offense this year.

    Go Cougars!

    I was very excited to see the Bomb Squad in action during the public scrimmage on Aug 15. It was a disappointing night to say the least. Taysom played flat and the only receivers who stood out were Henderson, Blackmon, and Dye. Trey Dye had the play of the night with an awesome catch and gritty run after the catch. Blackmon looks very athletic and fast. Should be a fun season. Bring on Friday!
