37: Riley Nelson saves the day for Cougars

No one has been more critical of Riley Nelson than Adam and Matt (especially Matt), but the boys eat some crow and give Riley his props. They discuss the big plays in the 4th quarter, whether Jake Heaps is done as a QB at BYU, and give praise to the defense for some impressive play late after giving up big plays early. This and much more on the 'Riley Nelson Lovefest' edition of the podcast, as always available here and on iTunes.


36: Conference Expansion; Utah State preview

Adam and Matt talk about the craziness surrounding BYU's potential entrance into the Big 12 and why it's the story that won't go away. They preview the Utah State game, and discuss whether BYU-USU is really a rivalry or not. They answer your questions from the TweetBag. All of this and loads of nonsense on the only podcast in America that will talk about "The Lord of the Rings" movies as well as how many snaps Riley Nelson will get on Friday. As always, listen here or on iTunes.


35: BYU makes the right plays to beat UCF

Adam and Matt talk shortly after BYU's 24-17 win over UCF. They are still very critical of the offense, but they praise Bryan Kariya's effort, the great playmaking ability of the defense, and are pretty darn excited about Cody Hoffman's TD return. They also discuss Brandon Doman's improvement as the OC, and Jake Heaps' apparent lack of improvement at QB. And of course, the obligatory pushing of Riley Nelson under the bus. All this and much more on Episode 35, available here and on iTunes.


34: UCF Preview with Jay Drew

Adam is joined by Jay Drew of the Salt Lake Tribune to talk about what went wrong against Utah and how the ship might be corrected for Friday night's showdown against UCF. Matt then comes on to preview the game against the Knights, make bold predictions, and answer your questions from the TweetBag. As always, you can find the podcast here at LoyalCougars or on iTunes.

32: Cougars drop a tough one in Austin

A forlorn Adam and Matt discuss the 17-16 loss against the Longhorns. They praise the defense, question the offense, and sincerely hope Riley Nelson does get another snap as the BYU QB.


31: Texas preview with Scott Johnson

Adam chats with former Cougar and current KSL sideline reporter Scott Johnson about the Ole Miss game and the big, big game against the Longhorns deep in the heart of Texas. Adam is then joined by his faithful sidekick Matt to preview the game and answer your questions from the TweetBag.

29: Ole Miss Preview

In Episode 29, Adam and Matt preview BYU's first game of independence. They play over/under on Heaps' yardage, Apo's touchdowns, and the D's QB sacks. They predict the outcome and talk about which players have to play well for the Cougars to win. And they go back to the TweetBag to answer your questions. That and they discuss the biggest mistake in Mississippi athletics history: not macking Admiral Ackbar the team's official mascot. This and so much more.
