Yes!!!!!I will get one chance to see the Cougars before my wife and
I leave for the mission field.Christmas in April!!!!
I think this is a great choice by Bronco. It is rewarding for both the players
and the fans to be able to watch their team perform in a spring game. It is
probably the best way to track the improvements and also see where more work is
needed. Although it is not a real game, it provides a game type situation for
the players to show what they got! What a great opportunity! Hopefully there
is a good showing at LES! If only the game was aired on ESPN, I would love to
check out some of the new talent here in PA! Guess I will just have to wait
until Sept. 3 to see my Cougs!Also I watched the Texas spring game
today. The Longhorns have a the new Offensive coordinator from Boise State
running a pro-style offense, problem is the entire roster including the QB's are
more suited for a spread. If that team does not see some vast improvements by
Sept 10, I believe BYU will have a 2-0 start in 2011. An upset in Austin would
be HUGE for the move to Independence. Can't wait!
With the tough schedule BYU opens with, I think the scrimmage game is critical
to really evaluate the talent, and the fans love the game. I think it was in
the scrimmage game that Max Hall edged out Cooper for the starting spot, in
spite of Cooper's injury. And I don't need ESPN for this one - I'd be happy if
they broadcast it on BYUTV.
Any chance of getting it on KBYU?
TV would be awesome! Tivo the spring game and watch it after doing yardwork!
Ugh, leaving town on Friday.
i'm sure ESPN will be covering it. It's been "reported" that bYu will
earn over 2.2 million.
This is going to be a fun team to watch.Jimmermania is moving on to
the NBA...get ready forHeaps o' mania!Soon
to be appearing nationwide in true HD!
Whether or not BYU earns anything for the spring game, they have enough to pay
for a basketball coach others want.
One thing is for sure hedgy, the number of fans watching this spring game will
out number the ute/usc game this fall....this we know to be true....
Any way the spring game can be put on BYUTV? I don't get Utah tv where i live
but i do get BYUTV.
It seems like a fun thing for the players too! The only down-side is now the
sports writers have still fill the collegiate sections.... @SLCWatchCongratulations on your mission call. I'll miss your
comments. Where are you going?
@Fresnogirl This is our third together. We are going to
Vancouver Canada Mission. Out last one was in Fukuoka Japan. The hard part is
we never missed a game in 27 years and now I have to buy my season tickets and
let my kids use them...rats...rats and double rats. But I wouldn't
miss the mission field for anything. It is so great to feel the spirit of the
Elders and Sisters. We have seen lives edified and miracles all around us and
we love the people we serve among. It is definitly something we love to share
in our retirement years.
This will be are first won game in an unbeaten season. 15-0!!!
Nice, Ernest! Thanks for your comments!Yes, BYU-TV, YouTube,
anything! Just a little something for my addiction.
Nice reward for the players for the hard work they have put in. I hope the
injury bug does not bite with any season impacting issues. Rise and shout
Its great to hear they are doing well enough to change Bronco's mind about a
spring game. Me and Ernest T. think this means that they are way good now and
will won all their games for sur.
Well, all the excitement hasn't taught you to spell, TJ, and it hasn't helped
Ernie figure out the difference between "our" and "are".
Must be U grads. I'll be at the spring game. It will be fun to watch.
I'm not sure anyone is concerned with the Spring game in Provo this year.
There's nothing on the line for the Cougars next year in football, no conference
title and no BCS invite. Well, I guess if BYU beats all those WAC
teams, you could make the claim the Cougs are WAC champs.
When I look around the country, I don't see anyone who can play with us! I
can't believe how good we are!
Did you see that home game lineup? Not a winning season next year in the lot!
Ah football in April, even if its only a spring game/glorified scrimmage its
still a fun time for fans to get out and see the 2011 Cougars. Now if only I
didnt have work this saturday I could go. Any chance this will be on BYUTV?
I don't know about this bronco....sounds like someone could get hurt.
RE. Real BassWell Idaho has had two consecutive winning seasons so
they have a pretty good chance to be over .500 by the end of the season, and
Utah will probably hit the .500 mark as well. As a USU fan I would like to
predict a winning season for the Aggies but I've done so for the past two years
and ended up eating crow so I will just remain hopeful that it might happen.
Overall though BYU must have one of the easier home schedules in the country.
One of the advantages/disadvantages of independence I suppose. Should make all
those cougar fans happy/bored to watch all of the eminent big wins next season
in LE stadium. Of course an easy win over an inferior opponent is still a lot
better than losing a close game to a superior one.
