Well, someone had to do it.
Busting into the playoff!
On behalf of all Utes fans
We are over the rivalry
We intend to post in this thread more often than BYU fans
BYU plays dirty
All BYU fans except for Fish suck
Welcome to the thread. May it become the longest thread ever
Really doe, mangum and kai nacua have been getting lots of hype but honest to God, my mvp so far has been kafusi.
Dude is a beast. He is all over the place. He may not have tons of tackles and sacks but he is always pressuring the qb, getting doubled and sometimes even triple teamed, and forcing opposing offenses into poorly executed plays often.
So dumb that he was moved to linebacker last year.
He will be a solid nfl DE. Booker it
Best part about the game on Saturday was that there were so many guys who could have been MVP. Juergens, Mangum and Hine on offense and Bronson, Nacua and Langi on defense. Langi looks like a guy who has a chance to be special.
UCLA has me a little nervous. Their DB's are much more athletic than Boise States so I don't the same Mangum magic happening. Hope I'm wrong but can't wait to find out!
Magnum has played well, but I'm wondering how well he'll sustain it as opponents acquire material to scout him.
Biggest issue in my opinion, because with such little familiarity, coaches won't trust him to make complicated reads. Things will be simple, and eventually be easy to pick up on.
BYU needs to get first downs. Haven't done that since Taysom went down in the 3rd quarter week 1. Relying too much on chunk yardage off of broken plays.
Regardless, I'm flying down to LA Saturday morning with a hope that we can pull it off. The pathway to victory is minutely conceivable, the answer will be in the execution.
I just read an article that said that someone at the u of u did study and found that only 30% of college football teams end the season with the same qb that they start the season with, or something like that. (Actually I think it was that only 30% of college football teams have a qb that doesn't miss any games due to injury)
That is crazy.
I sure hope tanner stays healthy
Mangum on Jim Rome, Stewart Mandel's top 5 Heisman, among others and now Grantland's lead story...
Mangum currently sitting at #24 in the country in passer rating with a 167.1.
For some perspective, Taysom Hill was at 131 in the Nebraska game before going down, Josh Rosen is at 142 (the powerhouse that is UNLV caused his to take a hit) and Travis Wilson at 121.
Sample size is small, but we can be encouraged.
Former Heisman winner out of USC, Matt Leinart's Heisman top 5.
This surprises me. I wonder what his ranking would be without the hail Mary type throws
The publicity is nice right now...... The ucla game looms very large for any of this publicity to really matter
Byu needs a defensive score or special teams td to have a shot against ucla imo
I want whichever team to win that results in the losing team being most butt hurt.
So... Go Cougs?
Definitely not BYU. BYU is a two TD+ underdog. Most BYU fans, while hopeful, expect to lose. If top 10, PAC12 power, UCLA, loses to BYU, they and their fans will be very much butt hurt.
Yep, definitely one of those things where we have to enjoy the limelight while we can, because it is likely coming to a screeching halt this Saturday evening.
BYU on the front page of ESPN - ESPN saying BYU has the most to prove.
win or lose, Dan Patrick announced today that TM will on his show this coming Monday.
