I would think it would be difficult for fans OR players to be excited about
playing games this late in the season with nobodies, with no bcs bowl or power
conference title implications. Bronco historically does a great job about
getting his guys ready for meaningless games. I think byu gets this
win(although I thought byu would beat Virginia, who doesn't have another
division I win)
Typical goals for teams:Win conference Enjoy bcs gloryBowl gameBet rivalOnly one of these is alive for byu, and
the weak bowl is already determinedIt must be tough watching your
rival have all four of these still possible. Am I right?Bronco is a
mastermind at winning worthless games however, so byu probably gets this win
byu secondary looking like a byu secondary!
More ute fans with NOTHING to do with their lives than follow BYU. I love
following teams who are worthless too with nothing to play for. Arizona is
licking their chops playing a team who left everything on the field, once
again.Could you miss a more obvious pushoff? Houston has
scores from all areas of the game so far...wow.
Would byu win a single game in the pac 12?Doubtful
@ Striker"More ute fans with NOTHING to do with their lives than

@Big 12 on Call yet? :Being independent, Do any of BYU's games
have real significance? It seems that if they aren't going
undefeated or aren't playing to stay bowl eligible (last game 5-x record)
then most games are just games...
38 points in a half. What a defense
@StrikerWe're just rooting for the Cougars for gosh sakes...
Utah fans first to comment. So whats new?
Did our defense and special teams decide not to show up today?To the
troll...Taysom still has 4 more INTs to match the great Travis Wilson's
ineptitude for a game. "LOL"Defense needs to buckle down,
offense needs to stop all the penalties...halftime 456 yards of offense to
Houston's 250. Offense gave a TD in the first half but they've put a
beat down on Houston in the first half...defense you need to step up.
Gee, will you guys get over your inferiority complex already? Your neurotic
shtick got old several thousand posts ago.
Insecure True Blue BYU fans are snarky. They even turn against other BYU fans. I
am a BYU alum, and had season tickets every year... until they got selfish and
went Indy. Since then, although I am a FINO (Fan in name only), I hate
Independence, and I hate what it has done to this program.
"Comments like that shows that you got nothing."The fact you
are here proves my point. Thanks for following BYU football. It's fun to
watch isn't it?? Did you like seeing BYU take the lead?
Anyone know where Jamal Williams is at? Haven't seen him in the last few
ute people, did you see that amazing game and BYU win? Of course you did cuz we
all LOVE following BYU football and blogging it about it all day Saturday!Wow, that game was THE best game I've seen this year. Wow, what a
game! BYU set some amazing records. Incredible, incredible game. Happy they
got a win.
To All Haters.....One huge solar storm takes out our satellite system and
everything comes to an end, the RIVALRY, the USA, the world and Football!
What a great game! Congratulations to BYU on a thrilling victory.
KSL reported Jamal Williams has a hip pointer. Tough kid -- He'll be back.
Every year there's a game or 2 that your better side of the ball struggles.
That's when you need the other side of the ball to make plays. BYUs defense
wasn't very good today (how bad do we miss Johnson & Trammel), but the
offense, despite numerous mistakes and boneheaded episodes, made big plays when
it was needed. Last year BYU loses this kind of game, but this year because the
offense is making so much progress, they come away with a win.Hats
off to Houston, they're a gutsy team with a lot of playmakers. They deserve
some credit for being a pretty good team (better than most people thought). Very entertaining game, glad the Cougs pulled it off.
Tooooooo close for comfort. Fun game though like the old days. What happened
today? Nothing going BYU's way till the end. Houston QB someone to watch in
the next few years.
I would think it would be difficult for fans OR players to be excited about
playing games anytime during the season knowing that you're nothing but
cannon fodder for the big boys of the conference to determine bcs bowl and
conference title aspirations.
BYU got a "W" against a pretty good football team today. Looking forward
to seeing utah get embarrased by a mediocre Arizona team tonight.
Unlike some other fellow Ute fans on this board, I compliment BYU on their gutsy
win today. Come on, you guys, let it go. It only serves to rile up BYU fans
like Tom in CA. Let's focus more on our own game and let the others go.
Great win with the toughest team so far.
For a Sophomore quarterback to go on the road and come from behind in a game
like this is a real accomplishment. Hill accounts for over five hundred yards of
total offense and rushes for over a hundred. We have ourselves a quarterback.
Also good to see Apo get two scores and for Hoffman to break the all time
receiving record and the all time catches record. There were way too many
penalties, and some badly blown coverages, but we are now 5-2 and our QB gains
confidence and experience every game. Go Cougars.
@Utenanymous,Top 10 Stanford(who just beat UCLA) would disagree with
your assessment. We should put all the rivalry hate aside and join
forces in supporting the ONE and ONLY premier program in our state, who is still
very much alive(just 1 game back) in the Pac 12 title hunt with the Rose Bowl as
a reward.What do you say byu fans?
"Top 10 Stanford(who just beat UCLA) would disagree with your
assessment.".You mean Stanford who beat a Bruin team that U
couldn't. This just goes to show that any team can win on any given
Saturday. I watched Stanford v UCLA today. I know ute fans don't like it,
but the truth is Stanford played like Stanford today...not so much against Utah.
I've watched Stanford 5 times this year including Utah last week. They
weren't even close to be the same team against Utah. Now the argument may
be that Utah had something to do with that, but if that were the case how come
Utah couldn't beat UCLA by 2 TDs like Stanford did. See Chrissy...the best
team doesn't always win & Stanford is better than Utah. The rest of
the season will provide evidence of my assessment. "Mark it down" LOL
Gutsy win. BYU fans must have had a few heart attacks along the way. BYU's
schedule works. They get that "exposure' thing going in different
markets with games they should usually win. No doubt their schedule isn't
as tough as Utah's schedule, but that wouldn't really bother me all
that much if not for all the BYU fans who think they are the better team all the
time when they have the better overall record. BYU could have lost
this game with a crazy score like the one Utah lost with to OSU(51-48). To
Taysom Hill's credit he bounced back from some turnovers and adversity to
put up numbers and make plays down the stretch to win the game. Today's game actually reminded me of that Utah vs Oregon State game when
Travis Wilson made errors and kept rebounding to rack up stats (passing and
rushing as well) to lead a comeback. Utah faltered in overtime, but I see two
solid young QBs in SLC and Provo for the years to come. Too bad we don't
have the rivalry game in that time. Maybe a bowl game but that's overkill
Good job cougs.Sorry the Utes lost, but have to say for all ute haters
probably loving it.Go utah schools
@Chris B "...Top 10 Stanford(who just beat UCLA) would disagree with your

alive(just 1 game back) in the Pac 12 title hunt with the Rose Bowl as a

proves that on any given day the utes are capable of beating a team. The U left
everything they had on the field beating Stanford. The tank is now empty
again. U may be in a AQ program, but I'd say it is not so
premier as you like to claim. Oregon is the only team that keeps the PAC12 from
falling to the depths of MWC calibur. Every one of the remaining teams would NOT
be intimidating to play. BYU could give any of them a good game. Even beat
them.And remember. BYU had already knocked off a top ten team before
you were born. Probably.
