Thread: Playing it Straight: UH Rainbows @ BYU

  1. #1

    Default Playing it Straight: UH Rainbows @ BYU

    Kickoff is Saturday, at 8:15 local, and BYU is an 8-point favorite. Will both teams be playing with their backup QBs? Will ESPN2 regret broadcasting this game? Will we return to 2017 form?

    This is a very funny title, but if BYU manages to lose this game, I hereby denominate LVAllen as the thread starter.

    If BYU doesn't get the win, I'll resign in disgrace. It would be a shame, too, because there's an awful lot of puns and entendres to be found in huskies, blue ballfields, and minutemen.

    LVAllen is the official game thread guy. He has a long rope, recent losses notwithstanding.

    Vegas has this game with BYU -14.5. They seem a little more confident than most people around here.

    i have to think vegas is confident the starter is out. even with the starter they had to go 5 OTs to beat a winless SJSU. seems there is a major dropoff from the starter to back up. i'm as negative about BYU as any fan out there, but they will win this by two TDs regardless of who byu throws out there at QB.

    Cole Mcdonald has thrown for 2100 yards, 24tds and only 2 ints in 6 games this year. He didn't play last week against Wyoming but he will be back for the BYU game.

    Tanner Mangum has thrown for 2600 yards, 12 tds and 13 ints in his last 14 games (including last season).

    Considering every QB careers it against our soft prevent defense, Cole should have a fun game on Saturday.

    watch the line move about 14 points with that news if it has been confirmed.

    I'm not going to believe it unless I see someone on the field, wearing McDonald's jersey, and sporting McDonald's dreadlocks. Two out of the three won't cut it, since they tried that stunt against Wyoming.

    I call a very hopeful blue-goggled BS!

    Here's to McDonald's injury not being life or career threatening, but just enough for him to sit out.

    What have I become?!!

    I will be going to the game, but it looks like my daughter will not be sitting with me. She would rather hang out in the student section with my son.

    So, I have a free ticket available to someone willing to sit by me on the 50 yard line.

    With your uncute kids out of the way, I'm sure there will be someone willing to sit with you.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    um...i may take you up on that if nobody else does. my suggestion, if you have other offers, would be to take the other offers first.

    East side or west side? Above concourse or below?

    Need to know just how good the ticket is before committing.

    Oh, and I can't make it this week. Hope the game ends up better than last week.
