So, considering how close each of the in-state games were this year, how do you
propose determining which team is the best in the state?Personally,
I propose giving it to the only team that didn't feel like it had to rush
the field after its victory :) Either that, or give it to the generic "home
Mendenhall and Anderson, that was a coaching clinic. Big time kudos to
Mendenhall's coaching at the end of the 1st half, textbook! It turned out
to be the difference in the game. So glad he didn't decide to run out the
clock. Great Job Bronco! Now after tonight we also know why you tried for two
@HawkeyeIt would appear they are all about even. All close games,
home team won all 3 of them. Not a lot of difference between them except that
BYU's and USU's defense's are definately better than utah's.
I'd rank them like this based on that.1A BYU1B USU1C utah
USU's defense was tough. BYU's was just a little tougher. Look
forward to the next game in Logan.
Aggie 84, Go Big Blue,Where are you guys? I'm so happy you are
sad tonight. Thinking about your sad faces puts a smile on my face.ThanksEnjoy Conference tomorrow. I know I will.
USU fans got under my skin this week. Thanks for winning BYU. That was amazing
defense. The Aggies offense was gritty and played well. Good luck to both teams.
I hope Doman will let Hill run more of that 22 second offense.
Otherwise it will be a long few weeks ahead.
Defense does it again, their streak at sub-300 yard games intact. Pretty sad it
was not put away earlier when we take the ball away in the red zone and come
away with nothing.I read about Anae's career being over, but
wasn't he in and called for a penalty?Worried about the hits
Taysom subjects himself too standing up and trying for extra yardage. Lots of
heart, but still have some big hitting teams to play.Go Cougs!
Lots of disappointed Ute fans tonight.Ain't it great!LOL
Utah State just gets better and better. I look forward to watching this rivalry
continue for many years to come. Good luck to Coach Andersen and his Aggies the
rest of the season.
This Utah fan says congrats to BYU on a good win. Utah State has a good team
too. Hopefully, we will all go bowling. Who's the state champ? Three way
tie, I can live with that! Again, good win Cougs and what a defense.
Wow. Sounded like a snooze fest. 9 total points.....
Heard coach Anderson talk about some unruly fan in his comments. I hope they
find out who that knucklehead is. Coach Anderson is a class act and has brought
Utah State out of the abyss. Class act and a class program. No losers tonight
except that fan of ours.
Hawkeye,To answer your question, the tie-breaker should go to BYU in
my opinion. It's true that every team can make a claim, but BYU held their
opponent's offense scoreless and won convincingly in regulation. Utah won
by a missed field goal and USU beat Utah in overtime, on a questionable pass
interference call. BYU's win was the most convincing.
@Hawkeye79One thing is for sure. USU isn't the best team in
the state. Nice job shutting the aggies up BYU. Any team that shuts the aggies
up is ok with me.
Ugly win but I will take it! Defense, studs as usual, love watching those guys
play. Offense, lots of work to do, o-line is killing the offense with missed
assignments, penalties, etc. I know Bronco never reads these
comments, but I want to apologize for criticizing your 2 point conversion call
against Boise, now I understand completely why you didn't kick the extra
point. The kicking game is a complete disaster, good grief! Special teams
coaches need to get this cleaned up fast.
Interesting that "Riverton Cougar" claims BYU as winner of the
tie-breaker based on his reasoning that Utah beat BYU by a missed field goal
after which he states that "BYU's win was the most convincing" even
though BYU's win was determined by a missed field goal. I suggest you have
your short-term memory tested and then re-take your BYU logics class.
I am impressed with USU for sure. I missed Gary Anderson's comments after
the game. I wish a BYU fan wouldn't have heckled GA. That's ridiculous
and very low class. Arguing with Sports Nutz is way more acceptable...
Really tough game. As I expected it would be D who kept BYU in the game. This is
a seriously great defense. It will keep BYU in games all year. USU's
defense was also excellent, but I think the raw QB was also a factor in
BYU's inability to score touchdowns. However -- what is going on with the
kicking game? Unbelievable.Here's what I liked to see -
Anderson and Mendenhall greeting and talking at midfield. Coach Anderson is a
class act and I hope he stays at USU for a while. I like underdogs, and USU has
had some close losses. Pretty soon they'll be close wins.
GG to the Cougars. Aggie fan here who really was looking to take the Old Wheel
tonight, but that BYU defense is something else...I think it is safe
to say we have three great football teams in this state. Here is to cheering for
all three of them the rest of the season and hope they pound the tar our of
their remaining competitions. I know people and fans can also say
harsh things. Here is to the ressurection of the tri-rivalry!! Let's just
keep it classy now.Again, GG Cougars!
