    I'm happy we ended our season with a win. I think the team has some nice momentum. I also think there is a really good chance that next year, we end up as a better team with a worse record.

    Utah
    at Tennessee
    USC
    Washington
    at Toledo
    at USF
    Boise State
    at Utah State
    Liberty
    Idaho State
    at UMass
    at SDSU

    The only plus is a lot of those tough games up front are at home. But that schedule is brutal - there are no gimme games until November 9th.

    It's weird that among the first seven games of the season, it's arguable that based on this year only, the easiest could be with USC (and yes, that won't be easy).

    That's brutal. I'll be there for each of the first four.

    Tevita means David.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    I hear we are going to make a major off season effort to become a team that throws the football all over the place.

    And waste all our RB talent? Doesn't really make sense.

    Ryan Pugh being hired as Troy's new OC.

    Impressive work to get hired by a decent FBS team as an OC after only 1 year at BYU as OL coach.

    I guess he had a stint at UTSA, but yeah.

    It has seemed quiet. Or maybe I'm just not listening.

    This is an important get. BYU had been working to get him into school for sometime. They need a bigger back for one thing. It's a nice pickup, and shouldn't have taken so long to have him accomidated by admissions.

    If he can stay healthy he will help us in short yardage. If we don’t add Ty’Son Williams (and I don’t think BYU beats Florida State) then Esukpa is one of our top 2 backs along with Katoa.

    Esukpa... I like the name:

    Now this is an important grad transfer for BYU. I feel much better about the RB situation now!
