And I don't think we're getting there. I posted this two weeks ago and stand by it.

Yep, at this point, I'll consider getting to 4 wins a major success. But I think we may only get to 3 at most.

I agree. At this point, I don't expect them to beat anyone. Beating UMASS would be a step forward. 4 wins would be a huge step forward. to win out would blow my mind.

I don't think BYU's defense has the ability to stop UMASS. I think BYU's last best chance at a win is UNLV.

So does 5 wins make BYU a contender?

I don't see any way that BYU wins out. They would have to become something they haven't been all year, a physical aggressive team both offensively and defensively. Neither is part of this coaching staffs nature and thus the team plays soft and passive.

WOW. Ty Detmer and the offense CAME ALIVE tonight!
Very impressed with this patched together O. Even against UNVL

If they play like that the rest of the way, they could win out.

How are UMass and Hawaii at stopping the run?
