With BYU Football being so up and down week-to-week, what on earth can we expect in Boise on Saturday night?

NCAA Football: Boise State at Troy Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

On this week’s episode of CougarCast:

  • We’ve seen 34 games at BYU with Kalani Sitake as head coach. He is 17-17. What do we know about having him at the helm? He is a really good guy. And it is going to be extremely up and down. (2:00)
  • Before Michael Shelton ever sounded off on the quality of BYU Football fans, the conversation on Twitter was about the lack of fans checking out the game against Northern Illinois. Why aren’t fans going to game? When they do go, why aren’t they passionate? Keith does a deep dive into the recent history of BYU Athletics marketing attempts to influence fan behavior and how it is probably a negative factor. (23:20)
  • Oh yeah, BYU plays Boise State this week. Brett Rypien and the Broncos have — like always — a very good football team. BYU’s ability to pull off their first victory ever in Boise will come down to their ability to defend the pass. Which is no easy task against BSU. (45:50)
