We’re only five weeks into the season, yet the maximum number of BCS unbeatens we can have is already down to four. That figure is going to dwindle with time, and the likelihood that there are no perfect teams in early December is very strong. The biggest beneficiary? How about BYU, the 410-pound Cougar in the room? Attrition is going to take a bite out of the big boys over the next two months. Oklahoma still must play Texas and Texas Tech. Alabama hosts LSU on Nov. 8. Penn State must go on the road to Wisconsin and Ohio State in October. All the while, BYU, now No. 8 in the AP poll, will climb closer to one of the top two spots, creating a ferocious national debate that’ll make the folks in Provo swear.
The last part made me die laughing. Good stuff. Of course, I’m sure I’m not going to swear about it. The ironic part is that the reason I’m not going to swear is the same reason I think BYU is going to stay focused. Tons of pressures might make you want to swear at times, but I don’t even notice them since I’m so focused on other things. It’s just a habit I’m in. Bronco seems to have done a very nice job of maintaining the focus of the team so that playing with heart and being assignment sound is just a habit. It’s a habit that’s going to win us a lot of games.
