CougarCast: BYU at Middle Tennessee Preview

Keith is in a dark place. Listen to what he has to say.


The BYU fan blues have even penetrated its way into CougarCast.

I was going to write lyrics to Muddy Waters "Manish Boy" with my feelings about the BYU football season to feel better, but I couldn't even work up the emotion within. Apathy is starting to set in. That's not good.

In this episode, Keith goes it alone and discusses:

  • How much effort is being shown on the field? (2:15)
  • If Nick Howell's job is on the line, he should get to call the plays. (3:05)
  • Surprisingly, another BYU football team was on a similar story arc over a season. (4:50)
  • What have current players said to Keith about the team's mindset after four straight losses? (6:30)
  • Who are the Blue Raiders of Middle Tennessee? (8:52)
  • BYU is like a bully. What happens if Middle Tennessee gets the first salvo? (10:00)
  • Injures as an excuse? (14:43)
  • BYU is a mess. (15:45)
  • How many points will the BYU offense need to score to beat Middle Tennessee (17:00)
  • Game/score prediction (17:45)
  • Keith will be grateful for six wins at this point. (18:51)
