This surprises me. UMass is a good passing team. Our DBs are shaky at best with Troy Warner out.

BUT, we did just beat a team using a LB as a QB. Things are looking good for BYU...

With the home team usually getting minus three, they are basically saying it is a toss up. I agree with the odds makers. UMASS gave Mississippi State a good game, losing away 34-23. They played much better against them than we did. This game is not the gimmee it was in the past. Since it as at home, I am a little more positive that we can win it. But the secret to my not going crazy watching the last couple of games is just to assume that this team will lose and be pleasantly surprised when we don't. How screwed up is that?

UMass also has a good passing defense, but it turns out that their run defense is weak. Could be another great game for Squally.

The fact that this line merited its own thread and discussion this season tells you just how dismal 2017 has been for Cougar pigskin fans.

If Critchlow comes out and plays like he did in the last game, I think BYU will win. If we get more QB play like we have seen the rest of the year, I think we will lose. And it all comes down to coaching. Plus, we need guys to quit dropping balls that hit them in the hands.

Funny thing, I'm more worried about our defense all of a sudden. They suck.
