That last TD pass from Jake, channeling Riley was awesome. I sure hope it is a
sign of things to come.
Great day of football!Unbelievable upsets;Baylor beat
Oklahoma USC beat Oregon StateBYU beat Idaho State and
did so with a clinic!You gotta love college football!Hang in there Band of Lil Brothers
Best outing of the year for Heaps. Granted, he had great protection, but he
really did look sharp. He's definitely a keeper. More importantly, as the ESPN
announcers continued to mention, this team is young. It will be really good next
year.As important has Heap's performance was Doman's play calling.
Clearly he is learning his job. Fun to see.Hard to believe that
DiLuigi is a senior. He had a nice game. NMSU has a couple of good cover guys,
especially the one on Hoffman, but that left Apo open. Nice win. They took care
of business, but looked impressive doing it. Somehow it was a much better game
than BYU v Idaho against is better opponent. But the result was pretty much the
same.I saw real improvement across the board.
Calm down everyone remember this was WAC opposition. Yes the WAC did the Cougars
a solid by lining up some teams to play for the 2011 Independent season.However one must keep things in there proper prospective with both Riley
and Jake and the rest of the team.Yes the future looks very good and
lets hope we stay independent and hang on to the ESPN contract instead of
jumping in with the two year BCS potential with the Big East. Breaking the ESPN contract in my opinion is a huge deal breaker. Why on earth
would you dump a guaranteed nationally televised coverage on ESPN programming
for a shot at a two year possibility for a BCS bowl. That is pure knuckle
head-ism. Please be smart here and stay with the long term ESPN
I was so BORED watching this game.BYU beating up on bad teams is not
football. It is a waste of time.
I am a huge BYU fan, but Utah's football program is currently better than BYU's.
I guess I am a bit tired of all the "talk" some BYU fans and media are
willing to do to pump up BYU football.BYU football is very average
right now. I think if roles were reversed, every BYU fan in the nation would be
saying what a great comeback season they are having. The BYU community needs to
"get real" and quit making excuses. Our football team is maybe a top
50 right now, and I think that is fair.I give props to the Utes for
making a run at a Pac-10 C-ship game after losing their starting QB. Their
defense is championship caliber as is their special teams. Their running game is
good enough and probably could be a lot better if they had a better passing
attack. As far as BYU is concerned, hey we lost to Texas by 1, to
TCU by 10 and to Utah by 44. The BYU offense is stagnant and without
misdirection when given our talent level, misdirection should be an absolute.
Doman needs more time, just like Heaps.
@rainintime: Huge BYU fan but Ute sympathizer. All the 'talk' is what fans do.
If the BYU offense is "without misdirection" does that mean that is

courage. You are either a Utah fan that has no integrity, or a "huge"
fair-weather BYU fan. I don't know which is worse.
@majmajorWhat is far worse than the scenario you present is a fan
like you who apparently believes that team loyalty demands that you overlook
reality in order to artificially inflate the quality of the program you
support.I respect RaininTime and wish more fans of both the Y and
the U were able to be a bit more objective and show RaininTime's class in being
able to respect the other team and acknowledge its achievements. It would
significantly elevate the discussions on these boards. As a U fan,
I certainly would like to think I would be as gracious as RaininTime if the
roles were reversed.
Heaps does do a good job against week competition. And, as someone wrote, Doman
is growing in his responsibilities.
