About the possibility of losing two weeks in a row at home, Cornerback Corby Eason said, “If we play BYU football we will be fine.”
And what, Corby, is BYU football to you?
2011 BYU football has been inconsistent, stalled, misdirected and poorly coached.
Bronco, I did not need your admission of blame for last week’s national embarrassment to point my finger in your direction.
I like you, Coach. I respect you. But after you hyped this team to the press during the preseason and insist that poor execution is impeding the team to perform at its high-talent level, this Friday night, BYU football had better not resemble the black day in history that was Sept. 17.
If it does, you lose most of your credibility in my eyes—and yes, I have considered all four 10-win seasons under your leadership.
It’s all riding on this game. That is the consequence you pay for coughing the ball up seven times and losing by 44 points at home against an in-state rival.
Here is what BYU must change to inch its way up to win No. 2 and send the UCF Knights back to Orlando with their tails between their legs.
