So worried about the altitude and those funky masks that they forgot how to tackle. SJ Ron :)

I think this settles the debate:

Final Score: BYU 40 - Texas 21
Texas was a 7.5 point favorite.

I told you they should have used the masks while playing.

That was a beatdown by my Cougars. They should have come a week early and trained on top of Pikes.

I see what you're saying now. A lot of the high altitude training I've read suggests doing something more like this because the only real way to get used to altitude is to acclimatize at altitude.

They should have worn the masks during the game. Maybe that would have helped prevent Provo from sucking their souls out :lol: , I'm always careful to never spend a single second longer there than it takes to drive through and even then I make sure my windows are shut tight.

I think a good old fashion door to door tupperware salesman from Utah took advantage of some rich school program! =D>
