Thread: 2017 BYU Cougar Football Thread

    Default 2017 BYU Cougar Football Thread

    I didn't see a season thread yet.

    First, LET'S GO, COUGARS!!!

    Second, BYU released the official schedule:

    http://byucougars.com/m-football/byu...tball-schedule

    It looks like ESPN already picked up the Boise State/BYU game for its Friday night game that week.

    (And yes, the MWC released their schedules today. And yes, the Broncos have a bye the week before the BYU game again.)

    Is this the 3rd time in the last 4 years that has been the case with the Trucker Utes? Or am I conflating BYU's games with both them and the Gaggies (and maybe the Utes)? Seems like those teams have all had their fair share of BYEs leading into the BYU game.

    Based on your suggested games, I'll assume you meant to limit the selection to away/neutral games. In that case, I'd be most interested in attending the LSU game. The game/site my wife would be most interested in is Hawaii.

    The game I'm most likely to attend is at home against Boise State.

    Not really limited to away games. Wisconsin and Utah are at LES, but the others are away. Fresno St. I will attend becasue although it is not very close at least it is in my state. I'd like to do LSU and Utah and WIsconsin but I dont think I want to travel that often for the games. My friend says Starkville is a fun place to see a game, but I am not sure he is telling me the truth.

    Not sure why I thought those were all away games. I might try to make it down for the Wisconsin game, too.

    The problem with Starkville is that it sucks to get to. You have to fly into Jackson, Memphis or Birmingham then drive at least two hours. The stadium is not that exciting either but the catfish is good. The good news is NASCAR will be running at the Talladega speedway the next day. So I am tempted to fly into Birmingham, drive over to the BYU game in Starkville on Saturday then to Talladega for the big race on Sunday.

    I am going to try to plan a business trip so I can catch the Frenso St game. Also, drive down to H-town for the LSU game, of course, if I can find some tickets.

    I wish I could swing that many. I'm definitely at LSU, I'm strongly considering Hawai'i, and in a perfect world, I'd fly to Utah for the Rivalry Game and against Wisconsin, but I'd rather stay married.

    You don't come to LV enough, so I say UNLV. Best football stadium in town (now that they have taken down the temporary lingere bowl stadium from down near Fremont street)!

    That's my most likely game this season. Utah and 'Sippi State are on my wish list.

    There's been a coaching re-shuffle on D. Kaufusi with LBs. Who is handling DL?

    Based upon his articles you'd think each player had been transformed into Luke Kuechly. Either that or he finally decides to come out publicly. Either/or.

    It isn't the most exciting thing in the world, but man, I'm loving being able to watch this spring scrimmage.

    I have very high hopes for Bushman. That will be nice to have a great TE.

    Kody Wilstead's skinny arms, though....

    Bronco was a dumbass for not allowing this to happen. Makes me want to boo him again.

    It was fun to watch. Kudos to Holmoe for getting it on tv. Shumway looks good. The new RB transfer from Wisconsin looks massive. I may be more excited about him than anyone else. He looks like Bettis v2. The rain made the practice a bit sloppy. Tanner had a couple nice throws but wasn't all that sharp with the downpour. Hoge looks much better this year and Detmer is maybe 5 lbs heavier than me.

    What I liked the most were the interviews. It was almost like a spring media day getting to hear from everyone. Very cool and very well done.

    Autograph sessions, gear, player and coach meet and greets. Basically a BYU party. Cool event for the family.

    Ouch. Talk about going from a high to a low:

    Junior offensive lineman Jacob Jimenez suffered a torn ACL in his knee during the team’s practice in St. George a little more than a week ago.

    The injury occurred while he was running down field to celebrate a score. Jimenez will miss the 2017 season and redshirt.

    There are a few BYU articles on CFN today, including their 2017 BYU preview. I enjoyed the What if BYU goes 13-0? article.

    No, really, what happens if BYU goes 13-0? Or 12-1? Does that mean that BYU could have this whole thing figured out after all?

    After years of being told it should be back in the Mountain West - and getting spurned by the Big 12 and Pac-12 - could remaining independent pay off in every way possible if the team turns out to be good enough for run the table?
