Like lambs to the slaughter....
@IndeMakWho has Notre Dame "slaughtered"?NO one
BYU by 30.
Hype? there's hype? ND is thinking about Oklahoma, BYU will have to do
something they haven't done for a couple of years, play a flawless game
with no turnovers and score a lot. There's no hype for this game.
Well, last weekend we learned that there is some life to the offense and yes,
some of the same problems of giving the ball away. We also learned that
Bronco's defense is not quite up to "prime time" play. A back-up
quarterback came in a did some major damage to the Cougars. The Oregon State
defense stepped up and took the ball away from the Cougars when it counted. Now
the Cougars og and play #5 in South Bend. I guess we can look forward to the
@the Truth, Notre Dame Slaughtered Miami 41-3, who are also 4-3 this
year with a similar schedule. They beat up on Navy 50-10 and Michigan State 20-3
who is also 4-3, one of those wins coming at the expense of Boise State, who
defeated BYU a few weeks ago. Irish by 21, Final Score 24-3Manti Te'o gets a game ball.
The only hype is can BYU not get their rear ends kicked on national TV. Maybe
if they can be competitive with the Irish they may be able to gain some momentum
going to Georgia Tech. They may miss being in a bowl game for the first time in
years. They need to focus on the task at hand, they are the team that used to
put fear in teams like ND just because they could score at will, now they put
fear into their fans because they may lose respect in the sports world.
FACT: Notre Dame is overrated, should be 12 or 13.FACT: Somebody is
going to go into South Bend and blow the wheels off their wagon.FACT: It
won't be BYU.
byu fans, are you praying for mercy already?We'll see if my
fellow Catholics give it.Notre Dame 40byu 9
If BYU will play four quarters like they did the first three against OSU, they
have a good chance. If they play one quarter like they did the 4th quarter with
OSU, they're dead. No one can fault Nelson for not trying. But really, is
there a quarter back in the NCAA that throws more inaccurate passes and wounded
ducks? It's not just attitude. It's attitude and ability that's
needed at this level.
Bronco wants to see how his program is doing against good teams. The stick he
has to use is the one that comes from ND's wood shed, the OSU's wood
shed. Nelson is a "shoot before you aim kinda guy". In other words he
is all over the field with his quarterbacking. I know he is a team leader but
with his inconsitant play and giving points to the other team is not acceptable
to be a true leader. The defense will get tourched with the deep pass and
special teams will not be playing at ND that day - no field goals made.Bronco has to know his program is one step above WAC play with the personnel
he has. A national championship for BYU will not be in Bronco's lifetime.
ND 51 BYU 21. Nelson with two pick sixes. I hope I am wrong with this
perdiction. I do want BYU to win, but the play of this team does not show they
can win the big one. Bonehead mistakes come to mind.
Cougs will be road kill. ND 49, BYU 0. No way BYU can score. ND is good enough
to keep them out of the end zone if BYU gets anywhere near the red zone. Riley
only survives game if he's removed in time. Bronco won't ever do that
so Manti Te'o will do it for him. Te'o has been looking forward to
this game for 4 years, and guess why? Not going to be pretty and our national
following who for some unknown reason still watch this team will be shaken to
Past time to give James Lark the opportunity to lead the team. The cougars have
two NFL type receivers on their roster, and they are not being allowed to
perform because of the awful offense that is being perpetrated on the field.
Any future recruits must be taking note of the fact that this offense is a
fraudulent simile of the past. Eldon Fortie was my hero while growing as a young
fan. The program did not become nationally respected until Virgil Carter was
the trigger man on the passing offense that we have all become to expect. We
are experiencing a regression of this great tradition. Very sad, indeed.
Lavell is still with us, I wonder what he thinks.
I don't mind BYU fans being optimistic and hopeful for this game. The
reality is your defense is solid but faltered against the first talented passing
team you faced. But at the same time your offense put up real numbers against a
real defense.Many BYU fans like to downplay other teams successes.
Vis-a-vis "who has ND slaughtered?" I don't know when Y fans will
learn to respect their opponents and give props were props are due. If you try
to prove every team you play somehow sucks, and every team who beats you still
somehow sucks, it all comes back on you.Right now, Manti Teo is
foaming at the mouth just thinking about the punishment he will inflict on
You have to admit, Bronco is not hiding from the tough teams just to pad
numbers.More than I can say for a lot of other over ranked teams in the
top 10 right now.
Its nice to say the usual chip on your shoulder, just another game blah blah
rhetoric. But reality will prevail this week, ND will beat down the lowly Cougs
in historic fashion. ND's Defense is better than OSU's so why is this
going to be any different? The #8 team cleaned our clocks at home, why
wouldn't the #5 team do the same on the road? At least they will leave the
mighty "black out" jerseys at home. and I'm getting a little tired
of Bronco's same old tripe. Why can't he get the same emotion or fire
for his team like his man crush on Riley??
#3 Oklahoma was 22 point favorites against the Cougars and we all know what
happened, although the final should have been BYU 14 Ok 6. Prediction BYU 27
Notre Dame 19 of course I also thought we'd be 6-1 right now and if not for
Bronco's pathetic leadership we would be, yeah I know should, could,
woulda. Holmoe please relegate Bronco to defensive coach.
Ok, so we might have a chance..but no, we have Riley, the turnover machine. He
has Rudy's grit, too bad he doesn't play as much as Rudy did. Riley will be the death of the coaching careers of bronco and doboy if
they don't wake up from this nightmare.
Jeez..... I'm disappointed.I was going to come on here and say
something snide but all you cougar "fans" beat me to it.With fans
like you who needs trolls?Good luck Coogs! I really, really, mean it.
Amen proud ute. They wanna throw Bronco under the bus, Riley under the bus like
somewhere we really do have a top 5 team but its bronco and Riley's fault
they can't show show it. Like so many other bandwagon fans, I
hope if we ever do break through that glass ceiling, all the crabs get left

Every team in the top ten is better than BYU. You just lost to one of them last
