Virginia vs. BYU: Game Preview

Last year's win set a great tone for the season: very solid defense and enough capitalizing on opponent mistakes to come away with a win.  Afterwards, of course: thbpt.  Winning that game led our thoughts completely astray, and it was two more months before the ugly truth truly sank in.  This year, the positive feelings from a win are a lot less likely to be phony; it...

BYU Football: Cougars Won’t Waste This Opportunity

It’s almost here. BYU vs. Texas. This might be the biggest game for the Cougars since declaring independence in 2010. No doubt Texas has had this game circled since being clobbered last year in Provo. Images of Taysom Hill still running into the end-zone have haunted the Longhorns for a year now. But a long list of players in burnt orange will not be present for this year’s...

BYU Football: Ugly Win Could Yield Big Results

Make no bones about it, BYU’s road win Friday night against UConn was ugly. But the train wreck that was 15 penalties for 150 yards could turn into a positive for the Cougars going forward. Here’s why. Beating up on an inferior opponent–and make no mistake, UConn was a vastly inferior team–can mask a team’s weaknesses. That’s why Bronco Mendenhall said after the game...

Good, Great, and Gamble Plays for Week 1 (2014)

The season is finally here! Been cranking out a ton of content for you guys and this had been pushed back but here it is finally. I want to point out that I will try to avoid naming the obvious guys (Ex. Taylor Kelly vs Weber State). Good Play: Has a decent matchup, but maybe not in a great offensive situation. May be the best it gets for this player throughout the season. Great...

Breaking Down the Gate Crashers: Brigham Young Cougars

There is one spot for the teams that aren’t in the Big 5 conferences to make a nationally relevant bowl game. Jerry Palm has it as the Peach Bowl, Phil Steele has it as the Fiesta Bowl. The game itself is up in the air, but there is one fact that doesn’t change: There is only one spot. None of the preseason top 25 teams according to the USA Today media poll were from one of the...

BYU's 'Rise As One' Slogan Sacked After School Realizes Budweiser Uses It

When the BYU Cougars came up with 'Rise as One' they thought they had a sure-fire winner. It was short, easy to print on merchandise, and sent a good team-oriented kind of message. It was the perfect slogan for a sports team. There was just one problem.Budweiser thought it was a great slogan too.Somehow the marketing team at BYU failed to realize that their new slogan was...

There was a reason why Jamaal Williams, BYU’s blossoming superstar at running back, was working with the second-team offense as the Cougars opened 2014 preseason training camp on Friday afternoon. In a post-practice interview session, Williams stared into the sea of cameras, microphones and recorders and confirmed rumors that he has been suspended for one game due to an honor...

The Silver Lining of BYU’s Failures in Reno

The first half of Saturday’s football game in Reno left the BYU fanbase wringing their hands (or perhaps clenching their fists) in frustration. It’s not easy watching an team whose first seven offensive drives resulted in five punts, a fumble, and a turnover on downs. Especially when the opponent has a total of four wins coming into the last game of the regular season. But...

Preview and Prediction: BYU vs Nevada

Week 14: BYU vs Nevada The Matchup: BYU is 4-2-2 all time against Nevada, but have lost the last two meetings in the series. They are also only 1-2 against Nevada since 1940.

College Fantasy Football 2013: Champs & Chumps, Week 12

While slate for Week 12 was not all that impressive, the performances were that and more.So many players were left off this week’s Champs/Chumps list despite putting up five touchdown passes like Rakeem Cato and Tajh Boyd did. Even a four-touchdown rushing day by a converted LB for UCLA wasn’t good enough to make this list either!That must mean a group of players had some very...

MadTown Badgers: Nine-Point Play(ers) for Week 11

MadTown Badgers: Nine-Point Play(ers) for Week 11 The last time any of you probably heard about BYU football was after the Cougars put Mack Brown’s job on life alert in September with a 40-21 baptism in how to run the football. BYU ran the ball for a Badger-esque 556 yards on 72 carries in that game, yet still managed to attempt 27 passes. The Cougars operate quickly, but not...
