Even though BYU won eight out of their last nine games of the 2011 season, and finished ranked no. 25 in the final standings, the Cougars feel that they are able to improve in every category to finish even better.
“Last year, we were overly confident with our offense,” junior running back Michael Alisa said. “We thought our offense was going to carry us to the promised land, but we didn’t have the work ethic to back it up. This year, everyone’s here, everyone’s united. Going into this year, we have a confidence that can only be attained through hard work.”
