Here's to Bronco Mendenhall learning a simple lesson from this game that he can carry forward into years to come if he is still at BYU. You're a D-1 football coach, you've got 4 or 5 QBs every year that you deem worthy of carrying on scholarship. If the one gobbling PT is mediocre, there is no shame in rotating through those other guys and giving them a shot regardless of whatever opinion you have formed of them from practice up until that point. Then you don't have to ever roll out a guy who has 2 games left in his college career and let him make you look like a complete fool for sitting him for 4 years. Good game, James Lark.
James Lark provided something today that has been missing for 3 years...
A QB who could complete passes consistently.
We haven't had this since Max Hall graduated.
Thanks DomaBroncRiley, for wasting everybody's time. Dumbasses.
byu vs New Mexico St
Feel the excitement!
But even against other suck teams, Riley has never been able to look great with his arm.
Riley couldn't throw for 400 yards and 6 TDs even if there wasn't a defense. The mere fact that BYU had a QB with an arm and accuracy and the ability to deliver the ball decently on time was sooooo refreshing! I haven't seen that since Max Hall graduated. Had Lark been given 2+ years of starting games, I'm sure this offense would have been far far FARRR different (in a good way).
I really hope van noy and hoffman dont leave for the nfl.
WAit just a Goll dang ROFL'coptering minute...
I just saw the highlights...
byu played AT New Mexico St?!?!?!?!?
The difference is that this is the last time BYU's final game will be with such a poor quality opponent... yet Utah is going to be forced into a so-called rivalry game with Colorado for years and years to come.
Oh yeah, and how's that bowl bid working out for you this year?
Utah didn't make a bowl game this year. Surprised you didn't know that.
Serious question: they really won't be playing bad teams at the end of the season now? Who'd they get to play them that late in the season?
It's a car attached to a 700 mph rocket sled, if you don't want to watch the video.
I was being sarcastic. Surprised you didn't know that.Utah didn't make a bowl game this year. Surprised you didn't know that.
In 2013: Hawaii (yes, I realize they are only a 2 win team this year, but they were a 6 win team last year)Serious question: they really won't be playing bad teams at the end of the season now? Who'd they get to play them that late in the season?
In 2104 and beyond: not set yet, I guess we'll see. If I were a betting man, though, I'd wager that BYU's final 2014 opponent will have a better record than Utah's final 2014 opponent. Would you take that wager?
Colorado will always be a bigger game than some random team from the HAAC conference or something (UGLI played college golf in the HAAC conference hollaaaaaa) just because its a PAC 12 game.
I don't make the rules, I just enforce them and live steadfastly by them. I'm like the Colton of College Football big gameness Moderating.
