Report on BYU Football Media Day

All in all, the BYU media day was what it is supposed to be: a pep rally for the season. Media and fans had access to players and coaches. The football program was pumped up as being the program that would get the most exposure of any school in the nation this year. Optimism was high.

Is BYU an Elite Program?

The Brigham Young Cougars are officially independent in football. As of midnight last Friday, July 1, 2011, they were no longer members of the Mountain West Conference. Ever since this move was announced August 31, 2010, many perceived that BYU was making this move as a statement that it was comparable to Notre Dame. While BYU has made it clear that this was not the motive, we can still ask the question: Is the BYU football program an elite program?

The Not So Down Years

The years 1986-88 have been labeled "the down years." As the years went by, "the down years" would be pushed further and further to the side until they fell completely off the BYU football map. Looking back on this three year period, 25 years after it started, it becomes evident that "the down years" were, actually, not so down.

Bronco is very media savvy

Did Bronco Mendenhall’s comments really change the quarterback situation last week? No. They were simply more of the same rhetoric that has been going around for the last three months. The quarterback competition is still open. Yet, somehow, while still being noncommittal about a 2011 starter, Mendenhall found a way to diffuse this issue without saying anything substantive or conclusive. It was genius.

Holiday Bowl Talks About A Contract With BYU

Holiday Bowl Executive Director Bruce Binkowski discusses the possibility of BYU reaching an agreement with the Holiday Bowl to participate in one of the bowl’s future games.

The start was so rough that 2/3 of the way through the season, this site questioned: Is Jake Heaps the worst Brigham Young Cougars freshman quarterback ever?

Was Saturday The "End" of The Rivalry?

The Brigham Young Cougars and Utah Utes finished another hard fought game that went down to the wire and had an unexpected ending. With BYU embarking on independence next year, and Utah joining the Pac-12, many have surmised that the "Holy War" is dead, over, done. This year was the end of the rivalry. Those taking this position argue that not playing in the same conference, that Utah gaining a recruiting advantage, and that the game no longer being played in November are the causes of death. To that, there is only one answer: NO WAY! The BYU-Utah rivalry will live on. It is greater than the two schools sharing the same conference affiliation, the games being competitive, and the placement of the game on the schedule.

Remembering The Rivalry

"It's rivalry week for the Brigham Young Cougars and the Utah Utes. This week's game will be the 86 game between the two schools. Each day this week, BYU FOOTBALL TALK will look back on one of the Cougars' great victories over the Utes." First up: November 15, 1975--BYU 51, Utah 20.

Breaking Down Jake Heaps' Breakout Game

The Brigham Young Cougars’ true freshman quarterback Jake Heaps had his much anticipated breakout game against UNLV last Saturday. Heaps finished the day with 19 completions on 31 attempts (61.3%) for 294 yards and 2 touchdowns. His pass efficiency rating was 162.25. In reality, this stat line represents what should be a "typical day at the office" for a BYU quarterback, but for this true freshman, it was a breakout game for several reasons.

Fabulous? Freshman Contributions for the Brigham Young Cougars

The 2010 recruiting class for the Brigham Young Cougars was the best in a long time. By the time the 2010 season kicked off, it was apparent that many freshman from this recruiting class, as well as redshirt and return missionary freshman, would play significant minutes for BYU this year. Coming off the bye week, I thought it was a good time to look at how the freshmen are contributing through the first eight games.

A New Low For BYU Football?

Since LaVell Edwards came along and allowed fans to have good expectations, five weeks into the 2010 season could be the lowest moment in BYU football.

Game of the Week: Arkansas vs. Alabama

The Alabama Crimson Tide and the Arkansas Razorbacks have done their part so far to make this game what we all wanted it to be.
