can’t sit back on this QB. Guadagni. He is a Sr and he’s mobile. https://www.espn.com/college-football/player/stats/_/id/3932903/mitchell-guadagni
He has 0 interceptions in 3 games. He averages nearly 10 YPA and 9 yds per attempt when he decides to run. 162 average rating, nearly 200 at home. Before we go all world on him, he is below 58% on his passes. Guadagni also had 118 yards rushing in the CSU game.
Our Wilson has twice the yardage @ 997, 3 interceptions, averages 1.1 YPA rushing. has a rating of 126 but higher completion rate at 62%. Wilson can also run so this will be an interesting matchup between two good QBs.
Prediction: Wilson has a big day.
control their run game, win the game. Koback had 228 yards in the CSU game. So BYU will have to forget the rush 3-drop 8 except in long 3rd downs.
We have Estupa and Katoa and that is good enough.
Turnovers and Penalties, BYU wins when it plays without this baggage.
BYU has got to score in the read zone, can’t settle for FGs.
Ohio is a big big football state, Toledo gets all those players that are not quite OSU, Cinn talent. Expect another shootout out there. On the one hand BYU lost Williams and Anderson, big hits but BYU has faced much tougher talent and Wilson is getting smarter by the game.
This game could be a let down for BYU after 4 big games but Toledo is favored to win the Mac and eager to get some national attention. BYU needs this game to right the ship and set up tough games with BSU and USU. It is a late game, we are used to it, Toledo won the late CSU game. Their stadium seats 26,000
Edge: BYU by a field goal-high scoring game
On BYU Sports Nation today, the game time was announced as 12:00pm EST noontime. Chris wasn’t correct. But, if you want to pay $5 at 8pm to watch a replay of Suzanne Sommers thigh buster info commercial go ahead.
CSU got close to 700 yds of total offense on Toledo, just sayin. They were yards from taking the game into overtime on a long hail mary. CSU failed in getting TDs, traded for field goals in the red zone.
In the Ky game, Guadagni was both the leading passer and game’s leading rusher.
Wow, you missed a lot on the Toledo game. BYU’s defense took your advise with three and four up front, look what happened. Wilson out passed the Toledo QB, but look who won. We could not stop the Toledo run in the second half. Wilson couldn’t put enough balls into BYU hands in the end zone. I don’t know is Wilson is really hurt or not. But BYU got out scored by Toledo.
Near the end of 3rd and all 4th qtr, our defense can’t stop the Toledo and Utah (last November). Same old problem not stopping when you got a win in reach. If we got a lead like that when we play Boise and usu, they will storm back to win against BYU. I like to see something change in the Defense department or leave it alone?
Bad play calling-bad execution on both sides of the ball-sorry this is getting to be the rule rather than the exception. Lose to USF and probably no bowl. The pressure is on Sitake and Company because right now BSU and USU are losses. Not disappointed in the loss but all the things that led to it
Well, inside the 5 let him go and score. Save 5-10 seconds. The missed field goals became big too. I’m more interested in why our offense can’t sustain drives and why we can’t score 30+ points. I thought Grimes would have figured that out. Instead, we get things like running plays on 3rd and 6.
I’m not sure that we have the talent. I think you are making an argument for something not in evidence, counselor!
I also don’t think that the excuse that it’s because we play against too many P5 teams is true, either. I think we would be doing about what we’re doing even if we weren’t playing too many P5 teams — that is, I think we would still be dropping games to teams we should beat, and beating some teams sometimes that we shouldn’t. We have to remember that the other teams game prep and try to win, too. They deserve credit — when we always make excuses, we act like they never play a part in our losses.
I also disagree that it’s all independence’s fault. We weren’t world-beaters at the end of our MWC career, either. I don’t think we would have won a MWC crown since then had we stayed.
The bottom line is that BYU can surprise us on any given week (Wisconsin/USC, or N. Illinois/UMASS). So, there’s always hope and something to look forward to, but also the feeling in the back of our minds that it could be something ugly.
correct me if I am wrong: BYU had 1 turnover, Toledo had 3…
BYU had Toledo on the 1 yard line and Iliaki chose to rush 4.
Chaz Ah Yu tackles the guy 5 yards out of bounds.
BYU throws on 3rd and 1 or 2 on three separate series.
BYW, Oldroyd was very sick before the game. the worse game of his life but its understandable.
BYU was the far better team and underperformed, especially in the red zone. Just stupid play calling on both sides of the ball. This loss is all on the Coaches.
BYW, I lose Wilson but he just does not learn. You would think that after the Utah game, he would wise up. He tries to do too much, lets emotions take over and now he’s injured from it. Oh, well, now Hall gets his big chance.
