117: Jay Drew on jersey debacle, JJ injury and new offense

Jay Drew of The Salt Lake Tribune returns to the podcast to discuss, first and foremost, the bad decision of putting values on the jersey instead of names, and Bronco's quick, self-deprecating reversal. He also analyzes the loss of cornerback Jordan Johnson and the progress of the new BYU offense.

Matt and Adam then give their take on the jersey debacle and what Johnson's loss could mean for the BYU season. They also discuss Johnny Football and the college football's lamest story. And inspired by BYUtv's top 50 plays TV special, they draft their favorite plays in BYU football history.


116: Bill Connelly of SB Nation on BYU

Bill Connelly is a college football writer for SB Nation and Football Outsiders, and the author of the book "Study Hall: College Football, Its Stats, and Its Stories." He also wrote a BYU preview back in May, which was an analytical examination of the Cougars' 2012 season. We talk about that and what he sees for the Cougars in 2013. 

Adam and Matt then examine the following: news out of fall camp; BYU's special teams; and the chances of BYU putting together a special season. They also answer a #Tweetbag full of your questions.
