its all about the players. not the coaches. coaches recruit, set the tone and
teach but the players must execute. come game time the players must put into
action the plans that the coaches put in place. yes the coaches make adjustments
but the player must be able to make the adjustments. Neuheisel has never been a
good recruiter. you can't be successful if you can't get the players. there is
not enough, nor the right type of talent at UCLA right now. you do
not change what you do mid season. it doesn't work. BYU was terrible offensively
at the beginning of the year. but the coaches were successful in teaching a your
inexperienced team into being a good offensive team. Neuheisel doesn't have the
ability to teach the game that is why he has been largely unsuccessful at
Colorado, Wahington and UCLA. I do not expect anything to change.

should take responsibility for the turn around this year because that is exactly
how it happened.
Chow comes with a price. about $500,000. I think he still would like to be a HC
but not just anywhere. OC at Utah? I don't see it. I don't see about $350,000 of
it. ASU might just be looking for a new direction at the end of the season.
yarrlydarb | 7:42 a.m. Nov. 26, 2010 Ogden, UT Utah loses a game
they should have won, Kyle places the blame on himself, nobody else. The same is true of Bronco. There we have two fine coaches who know where the
buck stops.---------I suggest you go back through recent
articles. Bronco has had no problem taking credit for the turnaround, but
hasn't said a syllable accepting responsibility for the bad start.He's talked about "entitled" players, about "how hard the
coaches have worked," and "Oh, yeah, the players, too." He's
talked about how much the players have learned.Frankly, I've been
shocked with Bronco's complete inability to shoulder the responsibility.
I would love to see Chow come back to Utah, for either BYU or Utah. I can't for
the life of me figure out how Neuheisel keeps convincing AD's to hire him as the
head coach of a major college program. He must be incredible in front of a
crowd of boosters or in the office of an administrator.
The current Utah spread offense is what has propelled them to the success they
have enjoyed. Do Utah fans really want to dump that in favor of a traditional
Chow offense? I don think so. How about copying Boise State
offense? Maybe its just the players and not necessarily the plays.
I'm smelling a Utah OC upgrade!!!!!!!!!!!!
Coach Chow -- come back to your roots -- the U. is calling! Just think - you
come back home to your school -- you wear your colors -- you get to play USC and
UCLA every year. What a great match. We welcome you with open arms. Coach Whit, make it happen!
Last I heard, the board of regents (?) needed to vote on getting a Norm an
extension.Neuheisel is the weak link @ UCLA. He's like a less
patient and less talented version of Spurrier.I am perfectly happy
w/ the Utes OC. With 2 obvious exceptions, the offense could almost match Oregon
is giving the scoreboard operator carpal tunnel.
As long as you gave him the reins, Chow would flourish at BYU or Utah. I don't
think he would come back to BYU, however. I think their were some hurt feelings
at his last departure from the Y. With Utah going into the PAC, he would be a
really good fit there, and I'll bet he'll be available by end of this season. Neuheisel never has been a very good coach. Either he or Chow or both
will get ousted. I don't think Norm is interested in being a HC.
Well I'm no Chow fan but I definately agree with him that a qb belongs under
center most of the time. I've always considered the shotgun a gimmicky formation
that limits the qb's options and also hurts the running game. As a football
coach I only want to use it in certain, limited, situations like obvious passing
downs or to run a limited number of trick plays. I really don't like it as an
every down formation.While Chow's play calling is circumspect he can
definatley implement an effective offense if left alone to do so. Neuheisel
isn't smart enough to leave it to him it seems.
looks like Norm's comments about Vince Young towards the end of the '07 season
were spot on (lazy, etc.). Too bad what he said was broadcasted during a
Titans/Colts game which cost Chow his job as offensive coordinator of the
Titans. Chow saw back then, what Mr. Bud Adams needs to see NOW !!
I wouldn't be surprised if Kyle would call Norm to come. Which of course Norm
was a alumni to utah.
I have nothing but respect for Norm Chow, he has earned it. He is a proven
winner both in college and the NFL, so why force him to run an offence that
isn't his? Sounds like UCLA would be doing him a favor if they fired him, no
doubt he would find a job in seconds and be much better off.
Norm, you are also welcome to come to Utah as an offensive coordinator. I think
we would gladly take you.
Neuheisel's the problem at UCLA just like he was at Washington. He's a blamer
and always has been. That's another thing he is, a has-been or a never-was.When Utah loses a game they should have won, Kyle places the blame on
himself, nobody else. The same is true of Bronco. There we have two
fine coaches who know where the buck stops.Sooner or later
Neuheisel's going to end up as he always does, i.e., fired.
Neuheisel just hasn't learned yet that Chow needs to be totally in charge of
calling the offense. He needs to let go of the reins and quit micro managing.
Chow's the master here. Pete Carrol...despite his Ego...even realized that.
It's just that when everyone else...especially those in the media realized that
it was Chow with the Genius at USC that he felt uncomfortable and cut him loose.
Neuheisel is not of the caliber that Carrol or LaVell Edwards of BYU were.
It's like bringing in a High School art teacher and having him try to teach
Picasso how to paint. Throw out the Pistol and let Chow do his own Magic.
Sounds like Neuheisel is the one that needs his job reviewed at the end of the
