Game Preview: BYU vs. Nevada

The Brigham Young Cougars’ game against the Nevada Wolf Pack has taken on new dimensions that were unimaginable two months ago. At the end of July, the Nevada game represented a run-of-the-mill non-conference game for BYU. Since then, three things have happened.

The BYU QB Conundrum

The Brigham Young Cougars quarterback situation has evolved from being undecided after fall camp to a dilemma after game one, and to a controversy after game two. After game three, the QB situation is now a conundrum. Neither Riley Nelson nor Jake Heaps has outplayed the other and made an overwhelming case to be the one, as Head Coach Bronco Mendenhall has said he was waiting for.

BYU 2 QB System: A Rousing Success?

The Brigham Young Cougars suffered an ugly loss last Saturday to the Air Force Falcons. It is easy to look at what happened in Colorado Springs and call BYU's two quarterback system a failure. In fact, many are doing just that. However, after letting the emotions subside and reassessing the results of this system thus far, it is far from failing.

Game Recap: Air Force 35, BYU 14

The Brigham Young Cougars came out strong to lead 14-7 after one period of play. Then the wheels came off. Air Force tied the game at 14 early in the second quarter. A Riley Nelson fumble and a Jake Heaps interception on back-to-back possessions in the middle of the second quarter gave Air Force all the momentum.

Flashback: LaVell's 50th Win

Brigham Young Cougars Head Coach Bronco Mendenhall notched his 50th career victory last Saturday against the Washington Huskies. This week, we are flashing back to LaVell's 50th win, November 11, 1978: BYU 21, San Diego State 3.

BYU: 2007 vs. 2010

The Brigham Young Cougars faced many of the same challenges coming in to the 2010 football season as they did in 2007. Coming off an 11-2 season, BYU opened the season at home against a Pac-10 team. The Cougars had to replace their three year starting quarterback, their all-time leading rusher, and their all-conference tight end. This has been pointed out by many already. Now that one game is in the books, let's compare how the first game went in 2007 and 2010.

BYU vs. Washington: Game Recap and Analysis

Bronco Mendenhall rotated Riley Nelson and Jake Heaps every series in the Brigham Young Cougars season opener. This two quarterback system produced 408 yards total offense and 23 points, which was good enough for a win against the Washington Huskies.

BYU Football Talk: Cougars earn a 3.6 GPA in Independent Studies

Grading BYU's move to independence in four areas: 1) the home for BYU's other sports, 2) scheduling, 3) access to bowls, and 4) a new television partner.

How the independence saga could end

The Brigham Young Cougars only have a few more days to consider their options and work out any details if they are going to change their status for football in 2011. It has been more than a week since word leaked out that BYU and the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) had a deal in place to allow BYU to become independent in football and move all other sports to the WAC. While the media frenzy has calmed, it is certain that administrators are still feverishly working at it. The BYU going independent story has four possible endings.

Fall Camp Superlatives

The Biggest Surprise, Disappointment, Positive, and Story from this year's fall camp.

18 Years Later, BYU is Still the Most Hated Team in America

The Brigham Young Cougars have accomplished a lot with Bronco Mendenhall as head coach. Forty-three wins the last four years, two conference championships, five consecutive bowl appearances, three bowl wins, and four seasons with a national ranking. Notwithstanding all this success, BYU has been unable to shed the label as the most hated team in America.

For BYU It's Independence or Bust

The Brigham Young Cougars have no choice now; they must declare independent status for football. This is no longer a question of whether or not independence is a good thing for BYU. This is a matter of principle. BYU has to stand up for what is right.

How BYU Can Succeed As An Independent

"Anyone advocating independence needs to reconcile four major risks that can't be avoided by making such a bold move: finding a home for BYU's other sports, scheduling twelve games every year, losing access to bowl games, and identifying a new television partner. Overcoming these four risks is a daunting task, and the initial reaction is that independence cannot work. However, by thinking outside the box, legitimate solutions can be identified that make succeeding as an independent very feasible."

Did BYU have a shot at Jerry Rice?

"Did LaVell Edwards recruit Jerry Rice to be part of the Brigham Young Cougars? That is the big question I came away with this weekend. I know that fall camp was opening up, and the Jake Heaps/Riley Nelson face off resumed, but after I listened to Jerry Rice's speech at the induction ceremony for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday night, I couldn't get this thought out of my head."

2010 BYU Quarterback Race: Unlike Any Other

"Since the Brigham Young Cougars conluded spring practices April 10, 2010, BYU fans have gone through the Harvey Unga bombshell and the climax of the conference expansion hoopla. Now that fall camp is just around the corner, it is time to refocus on what really matters: the quarterback race. The battle for the starting spot in 2010 is an epic one unlike any other. The talent level of the competing quarterbacks, the high stakes for BYU this year, and the historical similarities are three elements of this quarterback race that make it so epic."
