    I thought Usu would be improved based on returning both lines and the QB, but didn’t anticipate the offense being as good as it has been.

    I can agree with all that with the exception of Hawaii being ahead of USU. Hawaii just got blown out by a team USU crushed the week before
  3. Wyo doesn’t have much pass offense to speak of. They run much better.

    This is USU's problem. We've only beaten teams with losing records exception BYU.

    The good part of UCF winning...

    They have beaten three ranked teams this year.

    Fresno and Laramie are both viable options for that combo.

    When you have offers to live in Palo Alto or LA it's tough to say yes to Provo.

    Yeah the problem again, is who were the options? Ken N said no and that pretty much left Sitake. I for one, thought he'd be a good HC and he hasn't proved to be that yet. BYU was very fortunate to get LaVell Edwards and keep him for as long as they did. Bronco was weird as hell and had some faults but fit culturally with what BYU's leadership wants to do. He also won 9-10 games every year and had their lines pretty stout most of the time. The majority of BYU fans wanted him gone. The timing of it all has turned out badly thus far.

    That used to be the case. BYU used to get all the LDS kids. BYU still gets its fair share but is increasingly losing more to P12 schools. Utah is getting a lot of the top LDS kids. As is Stanford, USC, UCLA, etc. USU doesn't normally get Utah kids that BYU wants, but that is starting to change as well. @utenation made some good points. Independence and coaching changes have not helped the product on the field for BYU.

    The problem with BYU is not its programs money, facilities, or historic prestige. It severely limits its HC options due to requiring that HCs be card-carrying Latter Day Saints. There aren't that many potentials that are active Latter Day Saints. In terms of money, facilities, and fan support, BYU would be at the top of the G5. There are also recruiting limitations at BYU that make it less attractive. You have to convince college-age males to spend their entire college existence not drinking or having sex. If they aren't members of the club and are African American, you also have to convince them to live and attend all-white Provo. I'll bet that's a huge culture shock. I think those are the big limitations that hold BYU back from taking the next step as a program and getting into a P5, finding top-notch recruits, and attracting a high-quality HC, besides the challenging religious affiliation.

    My wife is from part of the armpit, Visalia, to be exact. I can say with high confidence I would much rather live in Visalia.

    UNLV at Utah State

    My point is, if UNLV's defense can't stop Utah State their offense will certainly not be enough without Rogers.

    UNLV at Utah State

    USUs poor offense scored 7 TDs in that game last year. I don't think the problem for UNLV will be on offense.

    Then getting TO drove him to retire when he was on the cusp. There’s no way Parcells wanted TO.
