Feelings

Post by snoscythe »

Just got back from Waco late last night. While half of my kids were wearing Baylor gear at the game (I did post-grad at Baylor), rest assured we were all cheering for the Cougs--pre-teen girls were just excited to wear their new outfits.

Thinking about it on the flight last night, and this season is feeling a lot like 2002 did. A lot of rah-rah excitement and momentum from the previous great season, a few strong wins to start the year off, then a close loss, another not-so-close loss, and in 2002, that's when the wheels started coming off and a coaching staff got desperate, made bone-headed adjustments to try and correct things, and eventually ran the program into the ground.

I am NOT saying that's where we are headed. It just has that same indecisive panicky feel right now, and I really don't like this skid, and I really don't like the UVa matchup right now.

UVA game could be a monster. Bronco/Anae has them playing very well and they'll have their guys ready to go for the game in provo.

I wasn't around for 2002, was on a 2 year vacation elsewhere. But I was there for 2003. I fondly remember the loss to utah 0-3 and BSU laying the wood on a rainy/snowy night. 2004 and 2005 weren't much better. I hope that history doesn't repeat itself. 2021-2024

I also was on my mission in 2001 and 2002, but was back for 2003 and enjoyed sitting through every game that year, especially the Utah game. BYU has been on a downward trajectory the last 3 games, UVA has been upward after a slow start. I really hope BYU beats the pants off of Washington State this week and gets their groove back.

Without MAJOR changes in our defensive philosophy and execution, BYU is going to be 5-4 after the Virginia game.
