I'll tell you exactly what happened; a failure to adjust.After
OSU's first scoring drive (almost all of it through the air), BYU still
rushed 4-5 players when they should have changed their scheme from the 3-4 to a
nickel to try and take away OSU's passing game.BYU's
defense played masterfully against WSU's pass-attack, but looked like it
was just too focused on getting to the qb and stopping the run rather than
containing the receivers.
byu does not have a secondary. Never has. Never will. YOu don't have the
"athletes" needed, even as a Des News article acknowledged a little
while back that you can't recruit the kind of "athletes" needed to
be legit Division 1 talent.Sorry. Truth hurts. Going
forward I expect to see all remaining teams air it out against byu, as all teams
always should have done.
Chris BHere's some truth for you.Utah has no offense,
hasn't for years and never will again, talk about lack of D-1 talent, your
slate of QB's is woeful at best. Your OC is a joke. Get used to being the
Pac doormat for a long long time, but your obsession with the Y will keep you
busy. Mark it down buddy.
I'll tell you what happened: They finally faced a decent offense.
jarkarus,What kind of offense is needed to be a Nick Saban Alabama
defense in a BCS bowl?One like byu?I think not.We'll go to 5 more BCS bowls before you guy even make it halfway through
the season undefeated and even merit a BCS reference.P.S. the BCS is
essentially not going away.Think the Rose Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Orange
Bowl are anxious to set up contracts with non-Notre Dame independents?Nope.Long live the BCS
Let's see: "What happened to the Cougar defense against OSU?" How
about they finally went up against a very formidable offense. I love my Cougs
but how can you get overly excited about such a high nat'l defensive
ranking based on the teams/schedule they've played thus far? Oregon State
proved something, as will Notre Dame and Georgia Tech. No worries, though, the
defense will "do better" once the November schedule comes along.
I can understand that BYU's secondary isn't the top calibre that many
D1 teams have, but all that was needed against OSU was to tell them not to let
the receiver get behind you. Playing a little deeper, taking away the deep ball
and making OSU throw underneath would have given the Coug defense a chance. I
don't understand why Bronco never made that adjustment. It seems that BYU
coaches don't make good half-time adjustments on either side of the ball.
They stick to their original gameplan no matter what the other team is doing. A
sure recipe for defeat.
chris b loves to hear himself talk. Of course he never has anything different
or relevant to say. This year, his problem is everything he has said about BYU
can be said about u."(u) byu does not have a secondary. Never has.
Never will. (u) YOu don't have the "athletes" needed, even as a Des
News article acknowledged a little while back that you can't recruit the
kind of "athletes" needed to be legit (12-pac) division 1 talent.(The 12-pac did not bring u into the league to be a winner. u are there to
lose to the legit teams so they can count the games as "BCS" quality
wins) Sorry. Truth hurts. Going forward I expect to see all remaining
teams (run and) air it out against (u) byu, as all teams always should have
