    Please, please, please, please, please, PUH-LEEEZ Bronco and Anae please......have the team prepared for this game vs Texas and yourselves prepared to go a FULL 60 minutes this time. No calling off the dogs or taking your foot off the gas in the 1st quarter like you did vs UConn after we quickly went up 14-0.

    Please do the following:
    - Do everything in your power to seize the momentum early
    - do everything in your power to hold onto that momentum for as long as you possibly can
    - DON'T at anytime in the game willingly take your foot off the gas thinking you have the game in hand and want to coast to the finish line
    - DON'T play hesitantly. Play to win instead of playing NOT to lose. Be aggressive and push hard right through to the final gun. Don't mess with momentum.
    - DON'T be afraid to RUTS (Run up the score), if it happens it happens. Let it happen to reward the team for all their hard work.
    -Anticipate their 2nd half adjustments and be ready to counter them
    - No stupid coaching decision brain farts
    - Put your best players on the field

    I'd prefer to have seen coverage regarding five players that worked hard, obeyed the rules, and got to play against UConn. Just saying.

    SalemCoug -

    Hopefully Bronco got the "ball on 35 debacle" out of his system. That decision was high risk, and almost no reward (the 35 is a pretty good starting point). Still can't believe he would do that. Not to mention - kick returns are high probability of players getting injured.

    They will need these 5 plus more polished play from everyone else this week to get the dubble-ya. It should be fun. Hopefully they don't get run over. That defense looked pretty weak against a terrible UConn team. The push for the run by the O-line didn't look that good either.

    @bigdaddy- Mendenhall said he wanted to give his return team a chance to break a big one (They broke a few last year). I like that attitude.

    I did not understand why the coaches had Uconn rekick when they had the ball on the 35 yard-line when the kick-off went out of bounds. They then returned the kick-off to less than the 20. To me that looked like another dumb coaching call like last year in Virginia.
    Bronco as the saying goes the BUCK stops with you.

    I'm looking forward to watching Blackmon in open space. He can do a lot of damage with his speed and quickness. Glad to see Williams will be back along with our best CBs. BYU needs all their weapons for this one. Texas is going to be like a woman scorned.
