BYU For Real?

Competition hasn't been great, but it hasn't been FCS teams either. BYU currently leads the country in total offense AND total defense. I've never seen a team do that before. Often times some of the power teams start the season with patsies, and I've never seen one of them lead in both categories. Either way it's good to have BYU on the schedule. They very well could end up being the team that gets Boise into the Access Bowl. There are a lot of assumptions in that statement, but it gives them a legit opponent

LA Tech opponent felt similar in caliber to the bottom half of the MWC.

LA Tech still has a lot of WAC pride, and their fans said the program likes playing games out west.

Texas State, UTSA are on BYUs schedule and are current MWC expansion candidates.

But LA Tech feels most on par with the MWC (bottom half).  They had fight.

IMO we still won't know what BYU is or isn't at the end of the year. They could go undefeated and I don't think it would tell us anything with their schedule being downright awful (no fault of their own). While I enjoy having football back as a spectator, I am not paying any attention to rankings and polls this year with so many players not playing or opting out and leagues playing at different times of the season and in different weather against different opponents than planned.

I think all we can conclude at the end of the year is that the respective league champions are better than their league-mates. Whereas BYU has no conference, it will be difficult to draw any definitive conclusions even if they happen to beat the likely best opponent on their schedule in BSU. In that matchup one team goes out and scrimmages the sisters of the poor each week while building up their entire season around a single game while the other will be busy playing a more difficult (and important) conference schedule each week and the OOC game against BYU will be just another game....and maybe one that doesn't matter a whole lot to them either.

The MWC schedule is apparently "so important" and "meaningful", that two of the best MWC schools (Boise and SDSU) voluntarily dropped conference games, so that they could play Independent BYU.

Odd that they would do such thing....right?  Don't they want the more "meaningful" MWC games?!?!

35 point underdog UTSA keeps it within a touchdown (20-27) and makes BYU secondary look a little suspect again. 

Easy now.. The BYU ilk here get defensive when you talk about their cupcake schedule. 4-0 against stinky turds and had trouble at home today against a team with a roadrunner mascot from powerhouse CUSA.

1984 2.0 is almost complete.

BYU is the most popular, most discussed, most followed, most watched, most emulated, and most cheered for team in the entire MWC.  BYU is the ORIGINAL VILLIAN of the Intermountain West!!

We will CRUSH BOISE, and send them back to the Potato fields, crying to their Idaho Mamas... @bsubroncochick

Go Cougs!!!!

 

You are a legend in your own mind.

Which is why BsU SDSu AFA should just go to AAC.  Or something. I mean if you don't want to play in your own conference change is needed I guess.

No they really aren't. The MWC would take UTEP and NMSU before those teams and the current teams would be happier going with 10 teams if they lost two members than taking UTEP and NMSU. The MWC has learned after taking SJSU that you're better off staying small then adding a team in a major city that no one cares about.

Air Force won't leave the MWC. And no, they won't put their other sports in the Summit no matter how much the local Memphis fan wants it to happen. If Air Force did anything it would go Indy and throw their sports in the WCC.

Unlike Boise State, Air Force actually cares about their rivalry games with Wyoming and Colorado State. And Air Force already had a chance to go to the Big 12 and said no if rumors are to believe.

Recipe for a W was on display Saturday. YBU has been playing Cupcakes to date, UTSA is a well coached team yet talent is lacking and that was evident.

Looking forward to the Borg receiving at least two nice  beatdowns by Boise and SDSU.

Houston is ranked in the 30s in a lot of the fancy computer systems. UTSA was in the 90s. Should be a good game this next week.

Gawd..WE finally got to play last Thursday.  It was soooo late in the season our offense thought it was Christmas what with gift wrapping the ball and handing it over to the Tulane every chance it got in the first half.   Fortunately Coogs snapped to it second half and remembered that it's only early October. 

Double Header Friday Night on the nigh ESPN Normal.  First it's SMU/the Tulane.  Then it's Coogs/Cougs.

I’ve often pondered what happens when a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it.

Every team has a down game. Win and move on. A win over Houston will be solid. How good are the teams on our schedule to early to tell for certain. But we know this all 4 wins are solid football teams. I think only 2 losses between them outside of the BYU loss. 
 

If BYU wins out the way the poll shape up we will be around the top 5. I doubt we win out. If we do we beat a least a few teams not playing our A game. I suspect BYU will pick up 2 more games probably one during the conference championship week. 
 

USU championship week and a possible P5 or Army.

I might be heading down to the game. Hopefully more blue cougars join me and sweep up the tickets and sell out the allotment. How many are they allowing?

With Rocky gone I’m pretty confident in a BYU win.

BYU may or may not be good this year, but this is a laughable take.
