  1. 1. Talent, depth, and coaching 2. Whatever they're paying the coaching staff now is over their market value. Paying market value is much less of an issue than the shallow candidate pool due to the card-carrying LDS member requirement. 3. True 4. The team has as much to play for as if they'd just dropped a couple of games in MW conference play 5. What do you think the Admin should do differently?
  2. Running roughshod may have been a bit of an overstatement with regards to the TCU game, but it ended as a decisive victory.
  3. Mostly sucking it up against BSU and USU, but we've found ways to lose to other MWC teams, too.
  4. That 2004 Utah team was legit. Their spread option offense was cutting edge at the time and Alex Smith ran it beautifully. Their average margin of victory that year was nearly 26 points per game. The smallest margin of victory was 14 points. That was a really good team. BYU's best MWC team might have actually been in 2006 with John Beck at QB. They lost the season opener on a last-second field goal at Arizona and then dropped a double-overtime game at Boston College, which was led by Matt Ryan. They then ran roughshod over the MWC, with an average margin of victory of 25.5 points, including a 14-point victory at #15 TCU. Their only close game in MWC play was the come-from-behind win against Utah at Rice Eccles. Of course, that was the season that BSU first went to the Fiesta Bowl, so BYU finishing 15/16 in the Coaches/AP poll didn't look that impressive.
  5. Undefeated team playing against its best remaining home opponent.
  6. BYU joining the Big 12 can cancel the game cancellation penalties. Joining the AAC cannot.
  7. Incorrect. Taysom's first action was throwing a touchdown pass against Washington State in the first game of that season. https://www.espn.com/college-football/game/_/gameId/322430252
  8. That's what I thought, too. And on the targeting call, the defender launched himself and delivered a blow with the crown of his helmet to the helmet of the ball carrier. It's like the textbook definition of targeting, even though it didn't look vicious or intentional or anything.
  9. Since Jaren came out of the game with an injury, it's not that crazy that BYU goes back to a white guy next week.
  10. Not embarrassed by the school. Disappointed, but not embarrassed, by the football team. It's just a game. Aside from the sports everyone cares about, the athletic department is doing great right now (4 teams in the top 10 - Men's X Country, Women's X Country, Women's Soccer, Women's Volleyball). Sorry, I guess I'm just not as invested in BYU and Cougar sports as you are.
  11. Surprising how much you guys care about BYU. What is it that @#1Stunner always says - the original villain of the Intermountain West? Some things never change, I guess.
  12. He did have suspiciously dark and curly hair...
  13. Weird. 10 years of winning and still hung up on Max Hall.
