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

Looking for consistency in the kicking game Next List » 5 of 5 « Prev
Inconsistency on special teams has been a source of frustration for BYU the past couple of seasons.

Missed field goals and errant extra points have haunted the Cougars (including a last-second field goal attempt that smacked the upright and prevented BYU from forcing the Utah game into overtime in 2012).

Senior placekicker Justin Sorensen, who has been beset by injuries since he arrived on campus, is looking to close out his career with a strong senior season. However, unlike past years, Sorensen has some competition. Walk-on Tyler Jackson and JC transfer Trevor Samson will do their best in fall camp to take Sorensen’s job.

At punter, the Cougars lose Riley Stephenson, who had a stellar season in 2012. His replacement is expected to be Scott Arellano, a JUCO transfer.

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!

"Go fast... Go hard" t-shirts?

Slogan t-shirts always work out so well for BYU....

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!!
