btw, getting over a bad loss and not letting it bother you going into the next season is one of the secret ingredients of "How to Build a Losing Streak" and a necessary characteristic in becoming a Wyoming Cowboy fan.
There's an old saying:
"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten."
Bronco has made the statement in interviews when asked if BYU was going to put together a special gameplan for the rivalry game and his response was that BYU doesn't gameplan for opponents. They just prepare as usual and rely on superior execution to beat them.
That was good enough to squeak out some narrow, miraculous wins when Anae was the OC because his offensive system was built around that and we had enough NFL talent on offense to pull that off. Anae isn't here anymore and neither are NFL guys like Harvey Unga, Max Hall, Dennis Pitta, Austin Collie, Travis Bright, Dallas Reynolds, Ray Feinga, Daniel Coats, Fui Vakapuna, Manase Tonga, John Beck etc.
What worked in the past isn't working now and what worked in the past required some of the best offensive position players in BYU history to just barely pull it off. We don't seem to have the same amount of NFL talent on offense anymore. Trying to get by on just superior execution was not very effective last year, or the year before, almost wasn't in 2009, absolutely wasn't in 2008, etc.
Getting hysterical and all mad about things won't change them. It's up to Bronco to make a change if he wants to start receiving different results. I think a lot of fans are waiting to see if he does.
"I'll admit, BYU football in the 80s was very respectable. Very cool, classic Lavell. Alot of great players. Mcmahon, Young, Detmer. Very good teams."
