Last week, BYU lost it’s “jobber vs. jobber” match against East Carolina. That’s right, Iron Mike Sharpe won! This week, BYU gets another crack at a college football jobber, San Jose State University. This Saturday, Barry Horowitz vs. the Brooklyn Brawler — Card Not Subject To Change (unfortunately).

Even still, the energy and passion is still burning inside Tosh and Keith.
