I really like the running play calls....NOT
Taysom for Heisman!
Anae calls a great misdirection run play and then a QB draw on 3rd &
13...makes no sense what he does some times. It's frustrating. Offensively
BYU is moving the ball but then does nothing when they're deep in Wisconsin
territory. Still a lot of work to do offensively.
down by 17 start of the 4th this game is over. BYU will be 8-4 for the season
and will hopefully win their bowl game.
cougsndawgsProblem isn't play calling. UW owns the line of
scrimmage. End of story...unless Hill gets some protection in the pocket, can
set his feet and can throw to his big receivers.
Still a lot of work to offensively AND defensively AND with special teams. This
team really isn't that good and doesn't compete very well when matched
against a good team.
You want to know why Utah is hands down the best team in Utah: 1) 70 yard punt
2) consistently punts downed within the 10 yard line 3) 51 yard field goal, 4)
great defense and 5) regardless of the opponent, they don't lose at home.
BYU's defense is good, but not great. Special teams are anything but. From a lifelong BYU fan, it isn't hard to recognize why Utah is the
best team in the state of Utah.BYU losing to Virginia, Utah, and now
Wisconsin shows that we are middle of the pack (maybe a little better), at best,
but definitely not elite (and haven't been for decades).Frustrating day.
So... BYU starts off the season losing, the fans whine (fire bronco, bench
taysom etc.) BYU then plays a bunch of cream puffs, BYU is now so improved,
Bronco is an amazing coach, Taysom for heisman!! Sound familiar to anyone?
Finally they are playing a formidable opponent at the end of the season to send
them back to reality unlike 2011,2012.
It's Wisconsin at Camp Randall. BYU played about as well as most teams
that will go there this year. This is about what I expected. A win would have
been nice, but not a bad showing at all.
Wisconsin had only given up 16 points in 4 games at home this year, according to
the stat ESPN just showed. I suppose we should consider it a moral victory that
BYU has scored more than that in this one game.Wisconsin is a good
team and is very tough at home. Might this game have been different in Provo,
or on a neutral field? Who knows, but the Badgers dominated today.Defensively, BYU showed the same flaws we've seen all season: they go too
conservative on third and long, they don't cover the underneath stuff, and
they commit too early with their line backers so they aren't in position to
fill the holes on the run game.Of course, it doesn't help that
the refs just picked up the third flag that should have been a penalty in
BYU's favor. Two PIs and a helmet-to-helmet hit waved off.
Well, I think we can now assess BYU and Taysom Hill. Hill has some game, but
not enough to carry BYU and offset a weak and ineffective O line. As a whole,
this team just isn't that good and clearly the loss to Utah was no fluke.
This O line just can't handle a physical front and isn't ready for
prime time. Should take lessons from Andersen's O line.
The inability of BYU's defense to prevent the touchdown right before the
end of the first half is why we lost this game. As much hype as this defense
gets, I really don't think they are that good.
Sometimes the better team wins.
What is wrong with our coaching staff? You're in FG range with 31 seconds.
You kick the FG and try an onside kick. But no, what do they do? Run the ball,
essentially giving up. Ridiculous.
Everyone was singing Taysom Hill's praises too soon; I held out because I
know he hasn't been tested enough - or yet. He needs to stay in the pocket
then step up and pass instead of the irresistible itch to run! Add to that the
poor play calling by hmmm... Anae, BYU may end up with one more win at home.
BYU has a 20-something ranked SOS. Remember that the next time you claim that
they have played a bunch of "cream puffs." I'm sure Texas,
Houston, Georgia Tech, and Boise State would take exception to being referred to
in that light.BYU went on the road and got smacked down by a better
team. I'm not ashamed of that. It isn't often that you play a team
that you don't have any chance at, but today was one of those days.
Wisconsin was just too good.
Cougars won 5 in a row, played a great Wisconsin team, no shame in losing by 10.
The O-Line is always the key to Taysom Hill, Williams running well, etc....it
all starts with them, they have to pass protect, have to run block, or nothing
NevadaCoug:Well said. Wisconsin is better than half the teams in the top
10 right now. Tip the hat to them...only loss was a close heartbreaker to ohio
state...I'm not including the ASU loss because no one else counts that
against them either.
BYU will be fine when its o-line controls the line of scrimmage. Until then BYU
will compete but lose against teams like Wisconsin.
Sometimes the better team wins.And the Cougs didn't blow a 19-7
Gotta love that great ESPN coverage. They have a camera following one of the BYU
assistant coaches (Tidwell?) for half the game, and even throw up a graphic
identifying him as Bronco Mendenhall! Surely "The Worldwide Leader in
Sports" can do better than that.Disappointing showing by BYU,
but nothing to be ashamed of against a very good Wisconsin team.
"BYU will be fine when its o-line controls the line of scrimmage. Until then
BYU will compete but lose against teams like Wisconsin."I agree
that BYU's o-line isn't very good. But I disagree that BYU can't
compete with teams like Wisconsin right now. They did compete. They
didn't get blown out of the stadium. They played Wisconsin tougher than
any other visiting team has done this season. Add a good o-line, and maybe Hill
has enough time to make more accurate throws. Add a good o-line and the running
game improves. Add a good o-line and BYU wins this game.But it is
what it is and BYU lost to a better team.
I agree - sometimes the best team wins - just ask ASU.
For you whiners: Andersen set up a perfect defense. Line was 9.5 and they got
10. Wisconsin is a very good team and beat us in their house. Clearly our
offensive line was not big enough and strong enough to handle their front seven.
Second half was better, but the damage had been done. Refs helped them on a
couple of non-pass interference calls, but they were not like the wimpy PAC12
refs protecting their teams.As for play calling and the usual
complaints about dumb plays, the fact is that BYU played a very clean game. UW
was just better this time. I'm not sure any team would have handled UW
today.End of story.
If you want a good laugh...go read the comments during the Utah game.....typical
Utah fans, bragging, beating their chests...then silence. It is the only thing
that will make Cougar fans feel better about today's loss.
To play a team like Wisconsin this closely on the road is not bad at all. I
didn't expect it to be this close. BYU is really coming along. Hopefully
they can break through against Notre Dame.
Let me say, I was a fan who knew this would be a tough game. I felt that an 8-4
season would be a solid year. Knowing that, this is difficult to say, but the
coaches played not to lose instead of playing to win. I've never been a fan
of Anae, he is better than Doman however. His play calling is bad! I love
Bronco, but if he wants to "take this program to the next level" punting
in the 4th quarter near midfield TWICE down by 17 is waving the white flag. We
were not going to win that game anyway, so why not take chances to at least get
a 1st down. Chances go from 1% chance to 0% chance when you give up and punt.
That made me more upset then Anae's crappy play calling. If you are going
to win big games, you need to take more chances end of story!
And when we had the chance to make a big play, our receivers can't catch.
It's not all on Taysom. Maybe its the gloves
Wisconsin is a very good team and will go up in the rankings through the end of
the season. Our Cougars played them better than any of their competition this
season. That doesn't eliminate the loss but it was a good showing. For
those of you cry babies and fair weather fans that continue to ask for the heads
of Anae and Mendenhall I can only shake my head in disbelief that you recognize
the talent of our coaches.
Oh, well--back to earth.
Hey All, this was a good game to watch. Sad that the "Y" lost on the big
ESPN spotlight. Bring on Idaho State - My Gosh!!!!! - we need a breather.
Didn't see the 2nd half but the first half was where they lost,
particularly in he 2nd quarter. They got out-scored 10 zip that quarter. They
tied in the 4th quarter and the 1st and 3rd quarters each team scored 3 & 7
or 7 & 3, so it was that poor defensive showing just before the half that
was their demise. Also, when the had Wissy in a 3rd and 13 they let them have a
15 yard completion. When we had 3rd and long, well, we got a 3 yard run. At
least it wasn't a blow-out and it was a road loss.Someone
posted earlier that the team on the hill never loses at home. I beg to differ,
especially this year. Today was their usual PAC 12 loss, yet again.
Loss to a good team. Wisconsin has class.Congrets!
I didn't expect a win at Wisconsin because the Badgers are scary good at
home, and just have better athletes. BYU lost to a better team on the road. It
happens. Are we really going to cry about it?Bright spots: Taysom
had some great throws, and Williams was very solid.To improve on:
Many of those great throws were dropped (Apo), the O-Line is clearly not very
good and didn't get any push or allow any time to throw, and the coaches
exhibited very poor game management in the 4th.The sky is not
falling, but it is a little cloudy at the moment. Hope we can pull it together
and beat Notre Dame in a few weeks. Go Cougs!
Sometimes the better team wins.And the Cougs didn't blow a 19-7
second-half lead , and at home mind you so before some of you haters
post that hatred you need to worry about what your own team does,but then
again you can,t squeeze blood from a turnip so i guess you can,t take the
hatred out of a life long hater.
Anyone else think that a major part of the problem is that Apo can't catch
Wisconsin out-coached BYU in this game. Punting from the 32 was bad
enough, but the punter couldn't even pin them down deep in their
territory.BYU should never schedule bye weeks. They never seem
prepared coming out.
Thank goodness ASU was able to win tonight. It will help prevent an Chris B

I know there were some gentlemen running around on the field in striped outfits.
Did anyone see any actual referees in this game? I mean a few fellas who act as
if they have been exposed to the rule book a few times, and not just middle aged
men with whistles in their mouths and flags in their pockets? I mean when a
receiver is mugged while the ball is in the air in front of 80 thousand people
how do you not call holding regardless of whether or not the ball is catch-able?
It is not kosher for coaches to be able to complain about the refs, but as a
fan, I think next time we play Wisconsin, someone should hire a few.
Game was no where as close as the score.Good thing Wisconsin took
the foot off the pedal mid way through the 3rd quarter or final score would have
really been embarassing.
YaskYNo one is fooled anymore. You're as big of a Ute as
@54-10 AKA Chris B, Wisconsin never felt they had this game put away.Now, if they had been playing your utes then the Wisky second team would have
been in by half time.Buckle up Chris. Not too many winnable games
left for U to make it to the New Mexico bowl.
BYU was pretty over-matched in this one. Curious to know how they do against
Another post defending THE ONLY university in our State with membership in a BCS
power conference denied by DN!
Tilka:True story, but not news.
@ Northwest Coug"Sometimes the better team wins.And
the Cougs didn't blow a 19-7 second-half lead!"No need for
the Cougs to blow any lead because BYU was never in the game. Period!
The Badgers dominated in the trenches, with their running backs and with their
blocking fullback. Their defense is solid, rarely out of position and makes the
fundamental plays. BYU might actually be more athletic but Wisconsin was
tougher on the LOS and more fundamentally sound. They also have an identity and
BYU offensively doesn't have one. End of story...
@cougsndawgs"Wisconsin is better than half the teams in the top
ten right now."LOL!
"If byu had beaten wisconsin, Virginia, and Utah, they would totally be in
discussion for the BCS. (because of all the bad teams we beat)"-next Greg Wrubell tweet
Northwest CougPasco, WASometimes the better team wins.And the Cougs didn't blow a 19-7 second-half lead!-----------Nope, but BYU did lose to the better team at home for
the 4th straight year.
Turns out the Notre Dame game is a cream puff too, now that they lost to Pitt!
Pittsburgh, really, are you kidding me. Gotta luv the strength of schedule.
@slcjimmyThere's a BCS team from a powerhouse conference in the
Beehive State? I couldn't tell. How about you focus on your
team's issues with throwing to the wrong jerseys, losing to a USC squad
that was practically suiting up waterboys, blowing leads against ranked division
opponents at home, and facing an Oregon team that will have 10 days of pent up
frustration to take out on the Utes next week?
Once again, the Cougars stumbled when they needed it most. I think the wide
receivers takes a big part of the blame. They dropped a few more balls that
they needed to catch when it was crucial. And a couple of those calls by the
ref, especially the last interference call was lame. They claimed the ball was
uncatchable but the defender was clearly holding on to Coffmann a few yards
earlier and made him missed the ball. It should've at least be a holding
call! Anyhow, it was a tough contest and I'm sad we came up
short again. Maybe they should try and change what they do during bye week. To
have all that time to prepare and then made all those mistakes baffles me. Good
luck the rest of the way!
@fenderYes wisconsin was the better team. This was not a game to
many of us thought BYU would win. wisconsin almost never loses at home to
anyone, it's a very tough place to play, especially against such a good
team. Of course not many teams, or qb's, play all that well against
wisconsin, they are a top 10 defense afterall. So if the measure of Taysom Hill
is how he played against a top 25 team, with a top 10 defense, on the road in a
place visiting teams NEVER win, his sophomore season, then we need to get you an
espn analyst job. @Y ask Y While disappointing the loss
was not embarrassing. Embarrassing is more like blowing a 12 point 4th quarter
lead at home. But as you said, sometimes the better team wins.
There was no doubt Wisconsin was the better team. It had BY FAR the better
offensive line. They could protect the passer and blow holes in BYU's line
at will. We could do neither! However, our play calling stunk at times. Robert
Anae can't call a rushing play on virtually every 3rd down and long
play--when we weren't even able to run the ball on short yardage plays
against their defense. Yet, check the film. With 3rd and 5 or more yards, he
called a running play every time. At least with a passing play we would have had
a chance to gain the yardage, but not with a run. Also, in the waning seconds of
the game, when we had no more time-outs, he still called running plays which
consumed the clock. What's he thinking? Very poor clock management at times
near the end.
Oh the woes of Independence! The question might be, will we ever have the
better dudes at the same time we have the better competition? We're young
at so many positions with a pretty mature schedule. Bronco loves it - but
fans better not expect miracles, though we've still had some pretty good
wins over national names who may or may not be having their best years. 8-4
might be a pretty good year considering who we're putting on the field in a
first year offense change and staff. We might still have a chance against ND,
but we're getting pretty banged up and not at full strength. And Idaho
State and Nevada may not be pushovers if we can't field a healthy team.
Thanks to those Cougs who put it all out there - but still some things to fix!
Wisconsin was the best team by far we've faced, I think. Bye weeks have
not been good for us either.
Tough loss against a good team. The Utah schools just can't get it done and
It was finally good to see us run a screen play, and a misdirection draw. We
never add variations to those attacking plays. Steps in the right direction,
but baby steps unfortunately.
On Wisconsin!We were just reminded yesterday that BYU can beat
aweful teams and look good doing it. But when they play a solid BCS team, they
will lose and look bad doing it. We see this every year under Bronco. When BYU starts winning and putting together winning streaks, the BYU fans
will turn on the hype machine and brag about how good their team is. Then we
have the Wisconsin game late in the season to prove that BYU hasn't gotten
better, but still remains a mediocre team that feasts upon cupcakes to get them
to bowl eligibility. Can BYU fans see the same repeated cycle year after year?
Seen enough of this article and comments. Now I know why they started this
famous "Jump Around". They started this a long time ago on a cold
November or even October years. Badger fans must of frozed toward the end of
first half and they started jumping around during half time and kept on going.
@DuckhunterBottom line BYU has FIVE Big 5 games to prove themselves
(2 at home and 3 on the road).And so far you are 2-3.Utah
State (11-2) and UTEP (3-9) didn't struggle as much as BYU did at Wisconsin
last year. Aa far as this year Wisconsin has played 2 D2 teams,
Purdue 1-8, Northwestern 4-5, BYU 6-3, and will play Indiana 4-5. So as of
today the only D1 team with a winning record is BYU.Utah did blow a
lead yesterday, but our defense held a great offense in check. We have a PAC-12
defense and a MWC offense and it seems for the third straight year no starting
Just for all of those Jay Heaps fans.......found this on espn.
It’s time for KU to hand the offense over to Cozart: The only time the
Jayhawks moved the ball in a 42-6 loss at Oklahoma State was when true freshman
Montell Cozart was in at quarterback. This is becoming a trend. Cozart’s
passing needs work. A lot of work. But his ability to move the chains out of
read and speed options is stark compared with when junior Jake Heaps is behind
center. Of Kansas’ 15 first downs in Stillwater, 13 came when Cozart was
at quarterback. Heaps had another disastrous QBR rating of 9.9, and hasn’t
scored higher than 37.8 all season (50 is average). It’s past time for the
Jayhawks to build toward the future. And that future clearly is with Cozart at
Oregon looked worse losing to Stanford than BYU, and Wisconsin. Things just
All week long the talk on BYU sports programs was speculation on where the
Cougars would finish in the polls when they went 10-2. Fun talk, but silly,
really.Before the season started, any knowledgeable fan would have been
ecstatic with an 8-4 season, given this year's tough schedule. BYU has a
real chance to win its final three games, even though neither Notre Dame or
Nevada will be easy. Unless the Cougs lose two of their final three, this is a
very successful regular season. A bowl win would make it superb!
BYU vs Wisconsin was very hard to watch. BYU was flat as a pancake. Hill
didn't have the blocking and offensive line he needed. Offensive
coordinator didn't call a decent game. Gary Anderson outcoached Bronco
Mendenall.I truly thought BYU was a better team than what they showed. Where
were are stars? Cody Hoffman, Apo did very little, we had one star perform and
that was Kyle Van Noy.
@uteologyAhhhh the desperation has set in for you I see. utah lost,
they have lost 5 times while only winning 4 times. Spin it any way you want but
it doesn't change the reality of it. That vaunted defense you are looking
to deliver moral victories blew a 12 point 4th quarter lead, at home. They blew
it. I understand the desperate desire to spin things as a positive,
I really do, but no matter how you spin it they still show as losses. They are
1-5 in conference. Lots of teams have close losses, never get blown out, but
lose anyway. That means they are good enough to not get obliterated every week
but they still aren't good enough to win very often. BYU lost
yesterday as well, no moral victory will console me as I hate to lose, but BYU
played a top 25 team on the road, honestly wisconsin may be a top 10 team before
it is all over they are very good. BYU is a borderline top 25 team at best, I
understand what they are. You need to get as reality check and realize what utah
@ Kiboo:How can you possibly say the Cougars don't play well
against good teams? During their 5 game win streak they beat a top-15 team that
still leads the Big 12 conference, a Boise State team that leads theirs, a
previously unbeaten Houston team... all part of the 21st toughest schedule in
the country.@ Kougar:No one phrased Taysom Hill's
too soon. You're just too slow. He's the 6th best qb in the country in
total offensive yardage against some very good teams. Learn to give credit where
credit is due. The only thing holding him back is a subpar offensive line which
doesn't protect him very well.
lol, you would think after reading some of these comments that wisconsin was #1
in the country!!! and whoever said that wisky was better than more than half of
the top 10, get real!!! maybe 2, and that would be oregon and auburn
UteologyBottom line:versus BCS teamsBYU 3-3Utah 1-5versus FBS teams with winning recordsBYU 6-1Utah 3-5Whine about schedule if it helps you sleep at night, but
it won't change the fact that BYU, with the 10th ranked SOS, is ranked
higher across the board than Utah.
The BYU O-line lost this game for BYU plain and simple.
BYU will improve dramatically this week and be a top team after Saturday. I
will be surprised if you do not beat Notre Dame the next week. Pittsburgh (4-4
going into the game) just did and Navy lost by 4 points at Notre Dame the week
before. (There is a reason Notre Dame is no longer in the top 25!) And then
Nevada (3-7 with a loss to UNLV)- similar to Idaho State. I predict 9-3 which
is better than predictions pre-season. However, the schedule was not as
difficult as expected. (Wisconsin 22 and Texas 24 in latest poll)Good year - worthy of a Kraft Hunger Bowl bid.
Wisconsin is quite a bit better than their #24 ranking. The Sagarin power
rankings have them #6. That is closer to being the more accurate ratings. I
mean, come on, have you really seen Fresno State play? Beyond the fact that
their players don't pass the 'look test' - they look like
community college players. They are no where near their top 20 or 15 ranking.
The Sagarin rankings have them at #53, which is much closer to reality. BTW, BYU
is now ranked #19 in the Sagarin power rankings. Wisconsin is a better team than
BYU this year and simply showed it. And its all at the line of scrimmage. BTW,
for those who are saying that 'Utah is the best team in the state of
Utah', Utah comes in at #29 in that ranking. Just the way it is.
Cracks me up how the haters still try to flog that "BYU plays cupcakes/UU
has the toughest schedule" meme. BYU has at least two decisive wins against
big-time programs this year: Texas, BSU, and an argument could include the
Georgia Tech game. Utah has not won a single game decisively (FCS doesn't
count). They were lucky to beat every FBS team they played, including BYU, who
put up better numbers, and had to play against PAC refs (as usual). So save yourselves some embarrassment and spend your energy urging the changes
the Utes need to compete in their fancy/shiny conference.
@ WA_Alum&Dad"Cracks me up how the haters still try to flog
that "BYU plays cupcakes/UU has the toughest schedule" meme. BYU has at
least two decisive wins against big-time programs this year: Texas, BSU, and an
argument could include the Georgia Tech game. Utah has not won a single game
decisively (FCS doesn't count). BYU also has more losses to
conference bottom dwellers than Utah. The Cougies have already lost to Virginia
and Utah which puts a damper on their whole season. Utah hasn't lost to one
yet. The Utes have a decisive win against Stanford which is looking a lot better
than BYU's win over Texas. Boise State is average this year and nothing
more. Georgia Tech? Not even close to being a great team to claim as a signature
win. "They were lucky to beat every FBS team they played,
including BYU, who put up better numbers, and had to play against PAC refs (as
usual)" Typical BYU fan blaming the refs for your loss again! I
hope you weren't one of the fans throwing garbage at the refs after the
game. Classless act by your fellow BYU fans.
"nsrichdmwest jordan , UTdown by 17 start of the 4th
this game is over. BYU will be 8-4 for the season and will hopefully win their
bowl game."Apparently you haven't watched Notre Dame much
this season. BYU has a really good shot in that one.
"ninersSAINT GEORGE, UTSo... BYU starts off the
season losing, the fans whine (fire bronco, bench taysom etc.) BYU then plays a
bunch of cream puffs, BYU is now so improved, Bronco is an amazing coach, Taysom

opponent at the end of the season to send them back to reality unlike
2011,2012."That's an interesting theory only for the most
part BYU has lost to the creampuffs while beating the better teams. Wisconsin
is the lone exception and BYU's SOS tells the same story.Oh,
and go Panthers.
"54-10Salt Lake City, UTGame was no where as close
as the score.Good thing Wisconsin took the foot off the pedal mid
way through the 3rd quarter or final score would have really been

not so sure the game was closer to a blowout when there were multiple PI's
overturned with "uncatchable" as the explanation in addition to BYU
punting twice in sure go for it situations...
"However, the schedule was not as difficult as expected. (Wisconsin 22 and
Texas 24 in latest poll)"Texas is now down Whaley and Gray in
addition to an already long list of starters. Things aren't going to end
@Elmer FuddYes, the two losses to conference cellar dwellers is
shameful--especially the second one. I still would't trade places with the
Utes--or Ute fans, whose only remaining joy appears to be coming on to comment
about stories that have nothing to do with their team. Meanwhile,
doing the math, BYU has beaten four teams by 17+ points: USU, BSU, TEX and GT,
two of which are BCS teams, and all four of which are in contention for their
conference titles. And no, I don't throw garbage. But can you
honestly say that the game was called straight-up? The ESPN crew called out at
least two big calls against BYU, and none against UU. But I guess hiding behind
the officiating is something that teams in big-boy conferences are OK with.
We plain just got supped!!!
@DuckhunterIt's always nice when you actually read what I say,
but obviously that didn't happen here. All quarterbacks are measured
against top-flight competition...how could it possibly be otherwise? Despite the
loss I gave Hill full credit for his effort and said he had "game".
It's a compliment. I also pointed out that he can't carry BYU and a
soft O line that can't protect him against a big, strong disciplined front
like UW's. All of that was obvious, so I have no idea where your comment
@fuddAnd to say U beat Stanford decisively is bogus. Winning by less than
a touchdown is hardly a decisive win. Find me one national commentator who
thinks Utah wasn't lucky to get that win--on their home field no less.
Taysom needs to stay in the pocket and throw the ball. He always runs out of the
pocket as soon as he gets the ball, then has no protection, then can't find
an open receiver because he takes too long, then he has no where to run. He
wasn't looking for a W in this game, he was trying to make a highlight reel
and he failed.
dustmanSome of those plays are designed rollouts, because the BYU OC
believes Hill can hurt a defense with his speed, if the pass isn't there.
Problem with that is you can't square up and set your feet as well on a
rollout. You also cut the field in half, so it's a two edged sword.More importantly, UW defenders were most often blowing by BYU's O
line and RB, and a QB can't step up in a pocket that isn't there. I
thought Hill did a very nice job throwing the football on those few occasions
where he was able to step up and make a throw from the pocket.
