Despite some sloppy play the Cougars lean on Pitta and George + Unga and come away with a big win. What struck me during the game is the difference in the top 3 teams in the conference and remaining team. I mean AFA isn’t a bad team, but they just couldn’t get a real momentum and couldn’t really push passed making the game close. Despite the Cougars attempt to open the door and allow them back in the game it was a solid win that preps them for a tough game at home next week.
Things that concerned me was Max’s unpredictable nature when something doesn’t go his way. He lost his head for a few series and the offense suffered as it took some time for him to regain his composure. I understand your emotional and competitive, but don’t forget that your performance drives the outcome of the game. Keeping your cool takes precedents over how tough you appear to your linemen or fans.
I don’t want to give Max too much crap because he has moved up a very prestigious ladder to etch his name in BYU history right next to Jim, Ty, and Steve. That’s not a bad short list.
Also congratulations to Harvey Unga and Dennis Pitta for the respectable contributions to BYU history and the legacies they will leave behind. BYU’s offense really has been something to behold as this trio has left their mark.
I am looking forward to next week, it will be a spectacular game with a lot of fire, intrigue and two good team laying it all on the line for…..well, second place. But hey, TCU deserves it and hopefully the conference championship will find its way back to Provo.
