ps - sucks for BYU to lose on a poor decision to go for 2... what prompted that risk?
Been away from trolling the computer - easy to do when we played on Thursday.
Re: kicking - it's been a issue for years.
If you recall - used to be we had a walk on kicker - Kyle Brotzman who was pretty good (held the national all time scoring record) except from the left hash mark. He blew two chip shots against Nevada - Nov 2009 - (1 at the end of regulation and 1 in OT) which cost us a potential shot at the national championship. (Yeah guys - I know - probably a pipe dream - just saying we were that close.)
Since then we got a "great" scholarship kicker. Problem is, he is third on the depth chart behind two walk on's who can't hit.
In 7 seasons Coach Pete is a 2 time Bryant winner and a Dodd winner. If he doesn't trust kicker Frischina then there is probably a good reason. And...........4X to score from the 1 yard line. Who woulda thunk - can't get it done?
Town and "Bronco Nation" are up in arms. The local call in sports radio show is a hoot. Haven't had a rebuilding year in a decade - time to get used to it. Our D is stellar but Nevada and Fresno State are gonna score - why are we in the top 25? 3 games and we haven't score an offensive TD in two? WTF?
New Mexico away next weekend. Heartburn.
