I do feel bad for heaps but clearly he is not doing much. Being inept at running
is not helping jake and I truly hope he improves and can contribute. I also am
not totally sold on nelson. He had some nice passes and some really lucky ones.
I still don't see nelsons running skills saving this team the whole season.
Whole team still has a long way to go if we hope to not get embarrassed by tcu.
With that, I loved the win. Needed morale boost. I have supported and cheered
for the Aggies for years. However I have in recent years realized how bitter
Aggies are towards all things Byu. It sort of makes these epic meltdowns against
auburn Colorado state and Byu quite comical and satisfying. I love knowing this
game is one many Aggies care about more than any other. I love that a lucky win
by an admittedly not very good Byu team crushes them so. And its icing on the
cake that riley nelson did it. Aggies, your bitterness brings a smile to my
face. I love knowing how this outcome is a nightmare come true. I absolutely
Unbelievable, improbable win....glad they pulled JH (anti-gamer) in the second
half. Good for former Aggie Riley Nelson (gamer) and his family, but BYU did not
deserve to win tonight. And I'm a BYU alum, not a Ute troll. Maybe they should
make allowances on hair length for ALL male students at the Y? And
did the special teams stink it up, or what? Kickoff OB, WAY LEFT FG attempt,
Falslev's gaffe at the end. Give Johnson a go at punt returns! And props to
Eason who was better in coverage/run support at field corner.But the
Aggies exposed BYU....they may be the best team in the State of Utah this year.
Keeton is going to be a good one. And again, I hope JH avoids talking to the
press this week/remainder of the season. I'm out.
I agree it was a good move to bring in Riley for this game. The difference for
the two QB's right now is that Heaps is moving the ball between the 20's and
stalling in the red zone. The team is setteling for too many FG's. Heaps and
the rest of the team are struggling to execute Doman's new offense. I'm sure
it's an equal share of blame between QB, WR, OL and coaching at this point.
They're not on the same page. Nelson came in and moved the team,
not necessarily by executing Doman's offense. A lot of what he did last night
was scrambling and making something happen when the plays broke down. Very
similar to how Doman came in as a back up QB and took the starting job by the
way. Unfortunatley for Heaps he tends to throw a pick more often than not when
he forces something. It seems that Riley is able to make something happen with
his feet and got lucky with McKay grabbing that desperation heave on the final
drive. With Jake's luck this year it would have been picked off and returned
for a touchdown.Glad we got the win!
Good game...Great game. I loved watching the Cougars for another of many games
since 1957/58 when Carroll Johnston was the handsome quarterback. Yes great
game, great memories.
Let's hope that Bronco didn't say anything because it is already obvious who the
starter is going to be.
Awesome job, Riley!
Hey isn't that hair a little long? Shame on you Ryley. I expect to see that
Hair high and tight by next game...or else I'm calling the honor code office.
Unless, of course, that it is your hair that gives you strength...then let it
grow grow grow!!! I think they give Athletes a special consideration for that
sort of thing!!!
Honestly, if all of this conference expansion craze weren't going on right now I
would have been fine with a BYU loss last night. Mendenhall needs to go. Sorry
