BYU football: Cougars looking to restore 'BYU brand of offense' and 4 other storylines at fall camp

Implementation of the "go fast, go hard" offense Next » 1 of 5 « Prev
Anae not only brought with him from Arizona a new offensive scheme, but he also branded it like a marketing genius. Within seconds of Anae uttering the "go fast, go hard" mantra for the first time, T-shirt makers went to work.

But will this offense work?

This fast-paced, high-tempo offense requires all of the players to be on the same page at all times. The Cougars are hoping to snap the ball 80-90 times per game, which means players will need to be physically, and mentally, ready. It usually takes time to install any offense. With this one, the learning curve is even steeper.

And, remember, this offensive coaching staff has never coached an official game together.

The good news for BYU is, it has plenty of experienced players and playmakers returning, including wide receivers Cody Hoffman and JD Falslev, running backs Jamaal Williams and Michael Alisa, and tight end Kaneakua Friel.

I'm nervous about the "go fast go hard" offense given the lack of experience on the O-line. Changing things up on them can definitely backfire. Of course, it might work magnificently too and our offense returns to yesteryear, lighting it up. Let's hope for the latter. Go cougs!

Hey Howie, I would be happy to pick you up one of those T'shirts so you can wear it to your ute games. Who knows, maybe your team will learn something from the slogan. The utes will need all the help they can get for this up coming season. Go cougs!!
