BYU football: Can the Cougars beat two top 10 teams in a row?NO
Maybe we should worry about scoring more than 7 points before thinking about
beating anyone really good.
Why not?I think they'll comfortably handle the Beaver. In reality, I don't really think the Beavers are a top 10 team.
There is no question the Beavers are top 25, but probably not top 10. ND
won't be a top 10 team by the time BYU faces them because ND is losing to
Stanford this week.
Um... no. Let me rephrase that. Emphatically No.
No, not with the offense they have been showing. BYU has never beat a good team
with Nelson at QB. I feel sorry for the defense. They can hold the opposing team
practically scoreless, and BYU can still lose.
Absolutely they can, in my mind BYU should be 6-0 and would be if not for
Bronco's latest poor decisions. The Cougars should win by at least 10 on
Saturday. One thing non of the writers on here, the trib, KSL etc have done is
give props for our loud/rowdy fans that caused Utah St. big issues last week. I
expect the same on Saturday, I will certainly be doing my part as the "12th
man" Provided Nelson doesn't get hurt BYU wins easily and then the
defensive will make a statement game against Notre Dame. Should BYU win that
they will be in the top 15 and provided Boise St loses (I think Fresno St might
do it this week) then BYU might should an invite with 2 losses to a BCS Bowl.
Go Cougars win it out, hold the house, and fans bring it Saturday!
Was this News worthy? Throw this out. Dumb question.
I believe we can beat Oregon this saturday but I'm not sure we can do the
same the following week. We will depend a great deal on the defense and some
luck on the offense.
BYU could win both of these games but I don't think they will. With Mannion out, Oregon State's #10 ranking will vanish. He is the main
piece in OSU's success thus far. The OSU defense has been surprisingly good
though. BYU and Utah will both beat OSU.As for Notre Dame, expect
BYU to get throttled in that one.
@Parkite 1Wow, can we say delusional? And Duckhunter thinks Utah
fans are up in the night. A BCS bowl? Hey Parkite 1, if I was a betting man, I
would offer a wager with you where if you win, you get my SUV, and if I won, I
would have you buy me a soda and chips. BYU has no shot at a BCS
bowl, even if they win all the rest of there games. Oregon State is
ranked where they are based upon what has happened thus far (this season), after
the Mannion injury, OSU will be out od the top 25 all together within 11 days
(following Sunday when the rankings come out) after BYU and Utah beat them.BYU is catching OSU at the right time. They also caught Boise State and
Utah at the right time but DIDN'T capitalize there. A BCS chance? Not.
Utah, BYU, and Boise State are all mediocre at best this year. Unfortunately for
BYU, a solid defense is going to waste with an anemic offense. Utah's
offense is no better, but might and I say might put up more points because BYU
turns the ball over.
Whether or not BYU wins, I don't expect them to get throttled in any game
they play this year. I have a favorite saying with my son, who is a defender in
soccer: You will never lose if the other team can't score on you.
It's a little different in football, where an interception can be returned
for a touchdown (thanks Boise State), but I do not expect Notre Dame to have
much success offensively against BYU's defense.
Not very likely but I'm willing to cheer my team on. If it
happens great, if not I won't be like a Ute fan and make excuses. Our team has some challenges but BYU has a solid defense. If there's any
hope it will be the defense to keep BYU in the game.Fortunately OSU
has a new QB this weekend. Maybe that will make a difference in this first of
two games. Notre Dame, hmmmm, not so optimistic.UCLA vs
Utah... another disappointment in the works. Go Bruins!
"If it happens great, if not I won't be like a Ute fan and make
excuses."Really Sammy? BYU fans are notorious for blaming the
refs or discrediting the other team's victory by claiming the BYU beat
This is classic cougar buffonary: Parkite1Park City,
UTAbsolutely they can, in my mind BYU should be 6-0 and would be if
not for Bronco's latest poor decisions.Only to be followed very
shortly by:sammygSpringville, UTIf it
happens great, if not I won't be like a Ute fan and make excuses.I take no joy in watching you all implode while fine young men like Tayson
Hill are getting hurt but with the QB and coaching soap opera you got going down
there you're in danger of becoming just another bad reality show.
Clearly, not with Nelson!
@proud uteMore hypocrisy from you I see. Here's your schtick.
Complain about BYU fans posting on articles about utah, the turn around and
troll up the BYU articles.And yes you do take joy in any negative
thing that happens to BYU. Don't pretend otherwise because it is obvious.
After you're done trollig go take a look at the bad reality
show going on in the trailer park on the hill, then get back to us.LOL!
Buffoonery probably has two "o"s. One game at a time, and I
like our odds in the first game. Notre Dame? Well, it's been a long time
since a miracle. And no, Utah players and fans storming the field while the
ball is still live doesn't count. I think that one is spelled b
u f f o o n e r y.
"Can the Cougars beat two top 10 teams in a row?"With
BYU's defense, of course they have a chance of beating either or both;
whether they will or not, depends on BYU finding an offense and a kicking game.
Troll,I don't complain about cougar trolls, I just return the
favor.It is amusing, not flattering, but amusing either you or your alter
ego sammy are so quick to post a personal reply when I spin you up. Must
be something about being a hypocrite that makes you so thin-skinned when the
tables are turned. You know the old saying; don't dish it out if you
can't take it. P.S. Apologies to Taysom Hill for my fat finger
error in misspelling his name.
I don't really care if Doman likes to shave his head, eat nachos, ski in
the nude, or wear sweat pants when he goes on dates with his wife. He's
the OC and Bronco chose him for a reason. I'm unclear what the reason is,
but I don't need everything explained to me.I think the Beavers
will enjoy the smack that the Cougars will bring. To me OSU is a top 25 team,
not a top 10 team and BYU will expose the Beavers.I'm not sure
if ND will be in the top 10 when BYU plays them. They have to get past Stanford
first.Crazier things have happened, but wouldn't it be cool if
BYU spanked the beavers on Saturday, ND beat stanford and then BYU beats ND?
That might thrust BYU back into BCS consideration.
Byu will be spanked by both teams!
CarsonMore lame predictions Chris B?
Without Mannion, Oregon State is not even a top 25 team. If BYU can't beat
them that would be sad.
@ Ducky....Scoreboard...LOL@ Sammyg....You and alot of your fellow
cougie fans are notorious excuse makers funny you would try to flip that. I
could copy and paste in 100's of your comments making excuses for your
team.As to the article my answer to the ? would be Oregon St. is far
from a top 10 team. Even with Mannion their not a top 10 team. Without him they
will most likley end up in the 40-50 range come seasons end. So the cougies yes
have a chance this week with them at home. Against the irish however they have
slim to no chance winning that game ecspecially with the cougie fan's
pre-season all american QB Riely playing.
2BCSWinsReally? '100's of (notorious) excuses'. Start
looking and let me know when you find the mother load of my excuses.Me really thinks this is just an outward expression of your frustration with
your team and that you're disappointed for the second season in a row.Go cheer up your team, they surely need it after 2 consecutive
conference losses, and maybe 3 after Saturday afternoon.
Yeah right, put Nelson back on the sideline with his cap on backwards running
around like a fool and put a real QB in and maybe you might have a fighting
Sammy...I could pull 10 just from an article after the U beat the cougies yet
again last month! Then pull another 30 from articles after the 54 - 10 beat down
last year. Just calling you out for calling the pot black is all.
