I truly think BSU is the best team we have played this year, even with a backup
QB.Keys for a BYU win:Taysom's passing percentage >
60%.Limit big plays. No TD given off of kick offs or punt returns.Win the turnover battle.If we hit these three marks, BYU will
break the smurf curse and win the game.
The last 4 games against Utah, TCU, and Boise:BYU is 0-4 vs UtahBYU is 0-4 vs TCUBYU is 0-3 vs Boise .... game 4 tomorrow!I
think BYU has a better defense so look for that streak to end tomorrow.
UteologyUtah is 0-4 vs Boise St (since Boise St moved to D-1A)Utah is 0-4 vs HoustonUtah is 0-8 vs WashingtonInstead of
stressing about BYU's winless streaks, you should worry about your own.
Uteology is actually a Y fan I think. Notice that he is pushing for the streak
Let's not underestimate the back up QB. Oregon State came in last year
with a backup and still beat us. Lets go Cougars!!!
@TheSportsAuthorityI was talking about recent history and you
respond by digging up 70s records with Houston? Good one.Utah is
0-3 against Boise2-2 against TCU4-0 against BYUYou might
finally win one tomorrow. Good luck.
@TheSportsAuthorityGet closer to the screen... Let me let you in on
a secret... I am worried about being able to compete against Houston as much as
I am worried about competing against BYU. Boise and Washington yes but teams
like BYU? Nope! Why? Because has not lost to an unranked mid-major since
2007.But this wasn't about Utah it's about BYU being owned
recently. I thing you have a great chance of beating Boise. You are a better
team so should win at home.
Boise State wins 31 to 20 is my prediction. BYU has mental blocks against
certain teams that aren't always better. Boise State knows where BYU is
weak and will take advantage of these weaknesses. Williams is hurting so Hill
will be relied on to provide a rushing attack. It will be close for a half, but
like past weeks BYU will struggle I the second half and be the 21st Utah team in
a row to lose to Boise.
Last year alot was wrong with this team. Problems fixed. Good job by Tom
Holmoe. He sees a problem and fixes it. I like this guy. Whether we win tonight or not, I know we can win it and not surely choke
against a great team. The confidence and tools are there. No guarantees but we
have a good fighting chance. That was not the case last year. One
last thing, put a brace on both of Taysoms knees and flack jacket him. He is
fast enough. We need him out there every game. That would insure our
UteologyLOL at your hilarious "recent history" spin.Recent history: In BYU's last two games versus Boise
State, BYU lost nail-biters at BSU 6-7 last year and at BSU 27-28 in 2008.In Utah's last two games versus Boise State, Utah was DESTROYED
3-26 in 2010 and 3-36 in 2006.In BYU's last two games versus
TCU, BYU lost at TCU 28-38 in 2011 and at TCU 3-31 in 2010.In
Utah's last two games versus TCU, Utah was absolutely curb-stomped at home
by TCU 7-47 in 2010 and at TCU 28-55 in 2009.Of course, worrying
about losing to unranked mid-majors shouldn't concern you, since you only
play one or two per season. Unfortunately for U, you do have to worry about
losing to unranked, conference bottom-dwellers like Colorado since you have to
play several of them every season.Call us when the Utes have their
first winning season in their "big boy" conference.
We're going to crush these guys. We are a legacy NCAA football program and
these guys are not relevant.
Boise State is an excellent, intelligent, skilled team that has won 20 straight
games against Utah schools. That fact alone speaks volumes. BYU is in the best
situation in a decade to win this game. Boise State is hurting with many key
injuries including QB and running backs and several linemen. BYU has an ace in
Tayson but Boise State matches with Chris Petersen perhaps the best mind in
college football. Really smart coaches and staff win,consider he is the
winningness active coach. Hill is the difference maker, if he is at his peak and
doesn't turn the ball over BYU wins. My own forecast is that he does turn
the ball over and Boise State is opportunistic and scores. BYU has more depth
and size so despite the ebb and flow BYU should win at home but don't take
it to the bank.
Cougs are good....no doubt about it, even as hard as it is for me to admit it.
But I think they take a loss tonight. Even though they have played and beat some
tough teams this year, they have not beaten a quality team like Boise. I think
due to Petersons coaching Taysom gets flustered and throws a few interceptions.
And just one other case in point, Uteanymous, when you haven't beat a team
in 4 years, you can't really say call us when you do something in the
"Big Boy" league. The Utes own BYU. So I think their fans can call you
anytime. And I am not a Ute fan.
Peterson would sure look might fine in Cardinal and Gold colors! Get a coaching
change in Boise. That should help out the head-to-head competition in the
BYU is improving each week.BSU is not.A highly motivated
BYU, at home, on natural turf, in front of a national TV audience, will put a
never-to-be-forgotten whipping on BSU.BYU by 60.
There you go again and mildred in fillmore disagree with you completely. Boise
State has a great tradition and a great team and coach. Yes they are hurting
bigtime and have many injuries but be careful putting down someone higher up in
the food chain because you can get eaten. Boise State has intelligent, skilled
players and a 20 to 0 win streak against Utah schools which shows consistency.
The Vegas margin is 7 pts that is not a blowout. Taysom one of the best QB this
year is facing a brain trust of Chris Petersen and staff that have beaten,
Oregon, Oregon State, Washington,Oklahoma these are not patsy's. They have
also had some undefeated seasons and BCS wins. BYU at home has a great chance to
win because of Boise States injuries but excellent athletes on both sides of the
ball portend for a great game.
LOL at your hilarious "recent history" spin.-------------And why are you laughing? Your team is on a 0-11 streak,
Utah is 6-5 against same teams over the same period.Why are you so
sensitive? I said this was about BYU and that you have a great chance of
winning. Do you disagree with my statement, because all you've done is try
to SPIN how BYU is better than Utah in TWO games rather then FOUR. And you
completely ignore Utah vs BYU games in your analysis.Let me let you
in on another secret...BYU: 2012 Boise #18, #12 2004Utah: 2010
Boise #9, #5 2006BYU: 2011 #14 TCU, 2010 #2Utah: 2010 #2 TCU,
2009 #6I think even you can see the difference in the quality of
opponents. Utah played FOUR top 9 teams, BYU just ONE.
AS a BSU fan I'm just hoping for a good clean game and a win. I do see a
difficult night ahead for the Broncos if thy let Taysom run loose. However, if
he runs as much as he has lately he's simply not going to hold up. He is a
beast of an athlete, but I don't think anyone can hold up under those
circumstances. I think your coaches are really taking chances with his health.
Oh Uteology, I love how absolutely obsessed with BYU your posts are. Thanks for
proving BYU relevancy. Today, we're bowl eligible. Maybe, by the end of the
season, Utah would be too. Maybe.
@Mildred (though why I'm wasting my time... /sigh...)You're very right. We'll destroy them and make them non-relevant.
Good call "Mildred"...
