CougarCast: BYU Sports Keith Shirts and Tosh Macintosh chat about BYU Sports.

September 27, 2016  

The Cougars are 1-3. Tosh and Keith discuss the idea of "learning how to win close games." Keith feels that all that is going on with BYU football can be explained by human's natural fear of death. They look into the talent Toledo Rockets football team. Ten For Tosh. General Conference talk. Finally, predictions for Friday night's contest with the Rockets.

The Cougars are half a team. The defense has played well enough to have BYU at 3-0. The offense has not played well enough to equal the defense. So, BYU is 1-2.

Next up for the Cougars are the West Virginia Mountaineers. Taysom Hill is still the starting quarterback against WVU, can the Y find points this Saturday?

New BYU Football defensive coordinator Ilaisa Tuiaki begins to fill in the shoes of Bronco Mendenhall. Mendenhall caused disagreements among Cougar fans on every front except one — Bronco knew his stuff on the defensive side of the ball.

Tuiaki has already made a big change from the Bronco era. The Cougars are now playing a 4-3 defensive scheme. Will BYU keep points off the board in 2016?

  • The linebackers are solid, but are unproven -- outside of Fred Warner. (14:30)
  • The defensive line is critical -- as is getting Travis Tuiloma healthy again! (17:30)
  • The treachery of playing without confidence in your kicking game. (23:00)
  • Punt and kick returners will be guys that actually should be returning kicks and punts! (27:50)
  • The return of practicing tackling! (29:45)
