First Hand Fan Perspective in Dallas…this is good!

The following is an email I received from a member of my softball team here in California who was on hand in Dallas to witness that great game.  It fired me up to read this.
“Oh yes…. I was there (cue music)ESPN radio AND all the commentators right outside the stadium –  they said on loud speakers right to our faces – ALL four of them – that Oklahoma was not only going to win…. but also beat the spread of 22 points. “It’s going to be a long day for Max Hall …

2 Cougar keys

It’s hard to say what’s going to be crucial on Saturday. There are so many things the Cougars have to do in order to leave Dallas with a giant “W”. In my opinion the game will hinge on our defenses ability to stop the run and our offensive lines ability to keep Max’s head attached to his neck/shoulders.

Mountain West Conf., On the Road, Scouting Reports, U of U week »

As the game closes in, I have been thinking a lot about how BYU needs to play in order to come out of Rice Eccles with a win.  After watching film I am sure a win is possible as long as a few aspects of the game swing in our favor.

I have looked at every statistical category from TFLs allowed to Time of Possession to Punting and it all adds up to one very exciting, and very close game.  On paper the difference between BYU and Utah comes down to the decimal point, almost all the way across the board.  So what are the factors that will put BYU over Utah on the field?  I think this game is going to come down to 3 things, all controlled by the big boys in the trenches.

I, too, praise Quinn for keeping this blog running and for the unique insight that is given daily. Not only that, but thanks to him for taking the TIME to do it. Quinn tried to elicit my assistance a couple of months ago and I agreed to help out with the blog, only to

I got a text from Quinn asking me if I would write a little bit about 2006’s final drive. Detailing my thougts and feelings on the final drive. I think for the rest of my life whenever it is the BYU vs Utah week I will always be reminded of that game in 2006. Even as I sit here typing, I have above me on a shelf the ball I took the final knee with. I wanted the ball that Johnny caught, but I don’t know if anybody knows where …

At this point of the season there really isn’t a person on the field that is 100%. If you have endured 11 games without some sort of injury, you’re a stronger man then I ever was. That being said there are different levels of injury. Harvey is probably the most banged up player on the team, but that’s because of the style. Add in the fact that he touches the ball the most and you have a recipe for some sore Sunday mornings.
Most of Harvey’s injuries will only heal with …

Current Cougars, Lavell Edwards Stadium, Mountain West Conf., On the Road, U of U week »

After thinking about the Cougar’s and Ute’s situations I am left wondering if the build-up and anticipation of Saturday’s game is diminished because of BYU loss? The Utes lived up to their end of the bargain and enter the game with an unblemished record. BYU suffered a demoralizing loss to TCU, but has since rebounded and is once again playing good football.

Here are just a few reasons why i love the BYU vs. Utah rivalry. The games have everything a fan could every want. Each game is filled with raw emotion, legal/illegal hits, good plays, bad plays, 4th down conversions and more.
The first video is from BYU’s last win at Rice Eccles and the second video is from Lavells final win against Utah, in Rice Eccles.
The first video picks up around the 2:52 point, I got chills remembering where I was when John threw that pass to Johnny. Enjoy, but don’t …

Air Force Week, Former Cougars, Mountain West Conf., On the Road »

[13 Nov 2008 | 8 Comments | ]

This is probably the funniest thing I remember from the Air Force games. It was in 2005 when Cameron Jensen was roaming the middle at linebacker -Kelly Poppinga did something similar, but I remember it more distinctively from 05′-06′.
