Editor’s note: The following is a transcript of the sixth episode of Cougar Insiders — a podcast from Deseret News writers Dick Harmon, Jeff Call and Doug Robinson. It’s been edited for clarity.

Dick Harmon: Coming up on this edition of Cougar Insiders podcast you’re going to hear a little bit about Tanner Mangum. Did he do enough to keep his job? Should his job be in jeopardy? Is his job on the line? Is Zach Wilson somewhere in the background, is he going to be thrust upon that? We’ll be talking about that. Also breaking down the BYU-Wisconsin game. BYU going into Big Ten territory and taking on a top-10 team. And then we’ve got a special guest that’s going to talk about the Hall of Fame status of Todd Christensen, why he should be in the Hall of Fame and why this is really kind of a big neglect on the part of the NFL. That and much much more on this edition of Cougar Insiders.

But they released some critical ones. And one that really stood out to me was that deep one to Dylan Collie, if you remember, would have put BYU in great field position and it looked like it kind of bounced off his fingertips a little bit. He had two guys on him. I don’t know if he heard footsteps or whatever. But that was a big one, that’s kind of a momentum-changer, I thought, for BYU.

DH: And I thought too, that BYU’s offensive line had played so well against Arizona and it turns out Arizona maybe is a little bit weak, but they did impose their will down in Tucson against that Pac-12 team, and in this game I think they did OK in the first half and they seemed to be dominating at times, if you look at the stats, they dominated in time of possession, they dominated in the total yards, they had more I think plays, but in the end is you take away from it in the third quarter, all of a sudden they’re stuffing BYU’s offensive line, they’re pushing them back, they …read more
