Travis Wilson plays so poorly at times that he looks bought-off. And I know he's not bought off, but how else do you explain five sacks taking us out of field goal range five times in the last two games?
Who the #%!@ got in his head and pissed all over his confidence and moxy? He doesn't just look handcuffed in this offense, he looks he doesn't even know he's being handcuffed.
His body language is pathetic. He throws picks, walks to the sideline, avoids coaches, leaves his helmet on, then walks back in on offense and mopes around like a broken man. This conference is too #%!@ing offense-loaded for us to have a QB that can't even manage games with a runner like Booker. McBride wouldn't know what to do with this guy.
It's not personal. I wish him the best. I think he's likable. But he is nothing but a tall liability out on the football field.
Sometimes, when I run out of posts here, I wander over to Cougarboard. Sometimes I am amazed at how many BYU fans can't spell the name of their home state and sometimes by how quickly they lost the faith in their program. Late last nigth I came across this thread about recruiting. To save you the effort of reading the thread, someone proposed that BYU was getting whipped in the recruiting game. He posted ratings from Scout and Rivals to show how BYU & Utah compared. One of our own suggested they look at the other end of the funnel to look at how many players were landing in the NFL, suggesting that might be a better indicator of how well the two schools were doing. Cougarboard, of course, dismissed his idea but I had my interest piqued. I sliced and diced the data a few ways before I came up with the idea of charting active players since the turn of the century. I was surprised by some of the results but in the end the NFL data supports the idea that Utah is doing a better job recruiting than BYU or USU. Of course, we knew that already.
We as fans have every right to be frustrated. We were unprepared, played like we had never seen rain and were beat up all over the field.
You knew this would happen eventually. We cannot play from behind by double digit points because we have NO offense. This offense is pathetic. If Wilson is our starter next season, it means we have 8 lousy quarterbacks on scholarship. We had better pray that someone steps up. I don't care if it is Isom, Hansen, Cox or someone else. But, TW has proved that he is not a D1 QB.
Now I am done venting, life goes on. We got beat by a team that came to play. Pathetic play by the Utes should NOT affect my life going forward.
Does anyone else feel that way? Do you look around during the game and wonder if what you see is truly that bad, or do you just assume that you don't understand football well enough to appreciate what we're doing?
I assume that I am missing something and that the coaches know what they're doing. I just assume that DC has some great insight that I don't have because he's getting paid to do it.
I usually just assume I am full of $#!+ when I think that we have no idea what we're doing out there.
The defense really was horrible today. 3 years in a row AZ has had a runner with over 200 yards run on the defense. Good grief.
Blue star me if you want, but I don't want to hear the word "elite" being used to describe Utah's defense. While they have had a lot to cheer about this season, they clearly had ridiculous issues today.
