Cougar Football is FUN! More to come for BYU against Texas State?
It has been awhile since BYU Football has been this fun to watch. Zach Wilson's command and trust in Dax Milne is thrilling stuff. Will it continue against Texas State? Hard to think it won't.

BYU vs UTSA and the perils of Mel Kiper Junior BYU QB Hype
The Cougars have opened the season perfectly. Can they keep it going against UTSA? I think they should! Also, Zach Wilson has played the best 3 consecutive games of football by a BYU QB since 2009 -- and the nation is paying attention. What could that mean?

BYU @ Navy
In this episode of CougarCast: A break down of BYU Football's first released depth chart Can BYU's offense get out of the gates quickly? If they can, BYU's chances of winning increase immensely again Navy. Watching out for Navy Linebacker Diego Fagot. He's a beast. Is it terrifying that Ilaisa Tuiaki is freely admitting that he has never had to game plan for and defend a triple-option offense? YES! BYU's depth chart on defense had 14 positions listed, but you can only play 11 guys? What does all that mean for the Cougars D? How to tell if BYU defense is holding their own against the Navy Triple Option (other than just looking at rushing yards). Ken Niumatalolo's success at Navy is astonishing. Outside of FB Jamale Carothers, Navy's offensive personnel is unproven. Is the game against Navy the challenge of the season for the Y? Keys to victory for the Cougars.

BYU Football has games cancelled. Now what?
Pandemics aren't great. Last week it was announced that the Big Ten and the Pac-12 would only be playing college football within their own conference. That means that BYU lost 5 of their 12 games on the schedule. Goodbye Utah, Michigan State, Arizona State, Minnesota, and Stanford. What does it mean for seeing Cougar football in 2020? Bad news friends. The cancellation of these games brings about an interesting new chapter to COVID-19's impact on the college football season -- the legal battles. Can a team claim the Force Majeure clause if they play 9 conference games?

The legacy of the 2019-20 BYU basketball team
With the cancellation of the NCAA tournament, the BYU Cougars won't get a chance to ever find out what their March Madness fate would've been. Strangely, that is probably good news for the legacy of this team, Yoeli Childs, and TJ Haws. Despite that, they would have certainly rather had the chance to play it out. Now, as fans and historians, we are left to the theater of the mind -- which is almost exclusively more kind than reality. The "Forever 27" Cougars.

Can BYU handle San Diego State's impressive defense?
BYU is going to have their hands full with the SDSU offense. And there will nothing on their hands with the Aztec offense. The question is, can BYU do enough offensively to finish the regular season with a road win? It may just come down to how BYU performs in short-yardage scenarios. Plus, a quick review of the good performance by BYU basketball in Maui.

BYU vs. Idaho State should go like you expect
The BYU Cougars are going to play Idaho State. The Bengals are losers of their last 4 games. The Y has won 3 in a row. This game should go as expected. So, what is there to watch for?

BYU vs. Liberty -- Plus, 2019-20 BYU Hoops preview
The Cougars crucially brought the Wagon Wheel back home! Now, can they avoid the letdown game against the Liberty Flames. It'll be another question of defensive philosophy -- to Blitz or not to Blitz. Plus, there is a load of talent on the BYU basketball team, can they handle the beginning of their season without Yoeli?
52 minutes | Nov 1, 2019
Will the Old Wagon Wheel stay in Logan?
The Cougars head to Logan to take on Utah State for the Old Wagon Wheel. Can BYU avoid losing to the Aggies for a third consecutive game? Absolutely. Will they? Have I introduced you to the Kalani-coaster? Should be a good game.

Can coming back home make the difference for BYU?
BYU is trending down. Boise State is trending up. To beat Boise State you have to play all 3 phases extremely well and sound for 60 minutes. Can BYU somehow find a way to do something they haven't done this season?
