Think about what a disaster it would be for our program, if BYU lost to Portland State, UMass, Hawaii, San Jose State, Fresno State, UNLV and what a disappointment it would be to lose to Utah State, or East Carolina.
To lose to the team that more realistic than not, is rapidly becoming our true rival, (Not Utah), but Boise State, would be a real heart breaker, especially if we lost this game in our own home in Provo.
If we xan not win a decent share of the games vs. LSU, Utah Utes, Wisconsin, or Mississippi State, than can we realistically think of ourselves as a P5 Independent team?
So begs the question, "Which 6 teams +1 are the most important games for the Cougars to win?
LSU, Wisconsin, Utah Utes, Mississippi State, Boise State, Utah State, and East Carolina.
Shame on us if we can't have our way with any of the others. We need to continmue to upgrade our schedule and concentrate more on SOS than bowl games and winning schedules. We learn by pressing ourselves to the limit, not by doing what is easy and a sure thing
