BYU Football, 2009 edition

ESPN.com's Graham Watson feature on BYU, posted today.

Ask any BYU fan, player, coach, or even opponent, and they probably have a theory as to why BYU, the highest-ranked non-BCS team to start 2008, imploded in every big game it played last season.

The Cougars were too tense, too overconfident, too absorbed with all the hype that surrounded the program, too insert-a-theory-here. The team has heard it all.

I like the angle. After all the hype the Cougars were getting last summer, the approach of investigating what went wrong a few months after the fact seems like a good idea.

Give it a read.
