BYU Looking Good


Recommended Posts

Though I agree with PT on Houston and Texas being less than stellar, I was kind of shocked to see that Houston leads the NCAA in total yardage since 2006 (I think....I know it was over several years, and Houston has like 55k yards over that time...might be longer).

 

I do think BYU looks good though, the scenery is worth visiting....oh, the football team....well, they don't look half bad either :-)

Coincides with the Sumlin/Keenum era.

Stomped Texas, beat a solid Houston team

 

It's a shame we don't have them on our schedule anymore

 

I just felt that two good Independent teams playing each other would be awesome

 

I have no desire to go to any stadium where you can't properly tailgate (i.e., no booze).

 

And BYU plays utterly nobody.

Yeah, the eyeball test is only for people who spend time in the film room with the coaches.

 

classic piratey. backdoor commenting on my posts :) :washing:

 

any good wins for BYU lately????

cuz felt more like they were hanging on last night after getting an early big lead.

 

HAH, I should mention that I'm basing this only on Taysom Hill

no booze is a good point

BYU is a very average team, maybe above average but I would not call them a good team. You saw Rees and Co. beat them fairly easy last year well just imagine what this years team would do to them. I really think the years of us playing teams below us close are done. We got our type of QB now and no more bend but don't break defense, we might have the odd scare or two every year like most top teams.

 

On that note BYU, Texas, and Houston would all get beaten soundly by this years ND team. You can see we are loaded with talent and speed, plus not having the conservative gameplans let's these athletes run wild.

 

I have never seen team speed like we have this year and the talent, those teams listed are all second or third tier teams.

Hopefully those odd scares are against teams like North Carolina and Louisville instead of Purdue and Tulsa.

It seems like they're really trying to correct that, but just can't make it into better schedules. The SEC considering them as not part of the Big 5 like they do ND for scheduling purposes hurt. They pretty much scheduled a Mountain West kind of schedule, but with Texas and Virginia added in. It's not an awful schedule, and I think they're at least trying to schedule big boys.

This year marks thirty years since BYU's one and only national championship which was a farce. They went undefeated against a horrible schedule and, if I recall correctly, didn't beat a team with a winning record.

 

And had to play a 6-5 Michigan team in their bowl game that year, too. There's an argument that Washington should have won the championship that year, but the fact that BYU absolutely spanked them the next year kind of cleared it up.

 

Michigan, once again, responsible for an iffy national championship. Can that just be their legacy?

You guys want to talk about iffy Championships? Look no further than Alabama, I think they only have like 4-5 legit championships, most of them recently.

Yeah. They probably would play us in South Bend for the next 20 years. They are hurting for cash, which is why they played us back to back years in SB.

 

they are hurting for a good schedule but not hurting for cash. And I hate byu but I think they will end up running the table this year, only team that might knock them off could be Utah

Virginia, UCF, Boise, and Cal are their only chances of blowing a game unless a scrub pulls an upset. The new system is said to take strength of schedule pretty serious so playing a crumby schedule like that will do nothing to help them.

 

I could see a 1 loss ND and numerous other schools with one loss get in the playoff before an undefeated BYU. I can't believe I'm talking about BYU and the playoff... they're a subpar team, would be no better than an Indiana in the big ten. The new system ends almost any chance of a non power 5 getting in, except ND.
