Looks like game on barring a last minute cancellation.

Poke should win this one going away. NM is down to their 3rd string QB. We should crush them

We better. Like I've said we should be 4-2 heading into this game.

Granted it's an exhibition season and lots of injuries, opt outs, etc., but the MWC is a dumpster fire. Hopefully next year is better.

Curious to see if we attempt or are able to develop some rhythm in the passing game against NM. They're the worst passing D, and we need some momentum there going into the Boise Game.

We should absolutely win this game, but I don't expect our offense to trounce them. Their defensive coordinator is light years ahead of our offensive coordinator as a coach, and I suspect he'll bridge at least some of the talent gap by outcoaching Vigen.

If our defense has a good showing and our offense doesn't crap the bed well be fine. If the defense has a bad showing and we turn the ball over a few times on offense, this could be uncomfortably close. Hell, NM could even beat us. That's where we're at as a program after 7 years. On any given day, a few things could implode and we could lose to damn near anyone, especially on the road.
When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

Meh, we've had some crappy things happen this year that are really unprecedented and unpredictable. Almost the whole d line being gone for covid? If we were this thin on the line any other year we'd be losing our minds at how unlucky we had been (i'm personally still baffled by that fact, actually).

What I'm trying to say is that this is exactly what a few big Mizzou fans I talked to this morning told me about us beating them last year. Any given day. And yeah it could happen to us but I don't think this year is one where we look at Bohl and say "wow, 7 years in?", at least in the same way we could if this had been a typical year.

Could be a hell of a lot worse. Look at Utah State, 2 years ago they were 11-2 and ranked in the Top 25. Today, they are a dumpster fire. No head coach, at best will be 2-5 and they are going to lose a ton of players to transfer. Granted, we aren't winning a conference title this year but it could be much worse.

What the hell do they teach these recievers and QBs? That first pass should have been an easy PI in the end zone. All he has to do is try to catch the ball. Or stop and let the corner run him over. Instead he grabs the defender and makes no effort to catch the ball or work to the ball. Why on earth would you grab the defender? Wtf are they teaching these guys? Levi can't see the open checkdowm and guns it into double coverage, exactly like Josh used to. This passing game is pathetic.

Same Sh#t different year. Grant and Vigen need to go. Not only the fundamentals, but why do you throw a fade to a guy that's 5-8, when you have several receivers over 6-4 and TEs that are 6-6??

I'm so sick of this offense, it's demoralizing week in and week out.

Wyoming will win or lose with a running have as long as Bohl is here.... At least the run game is functional at times. That said...Levi and the receivers are not helping themselves.

Team looks to be regressing to me. Bad offense and bad defense. This is worse then how we played csu only this time against an even worse team.

I feel like we’ll wake up as long as we don’t spot them too many points.
