5 things to ponder as BYU embarks on fall camp
1.Go-fast, go-hard, part II
The Cougars should be more confident and comfortable in year two of offensive coordinator Robert Anae’s go-fast, go-hard offense.
But will that translate to more touchdowns?
In 2013, BYU was one of the worst teams in the country in red zone touchdown percentage. The Cougars amassed tons of yardage, but inside the 20-yard line, they struggled to punch the ball into the end zone. That will be something to keep an eye on during fall camp.
Quarterback Taysom Hill and running back Jamaal Williams (who will miss the season-opener at UConn due to an honor code-related suspension) comprise one of the nation’s top rushing tandems, and Hill has a host of weapons to throw to at the deep and talented wide receiver position.
If the Cougars are going to have the kind of special season they aspire to, they need to turn drives into touchdowns on a consistent basis.
