I thought Friel might push for the starting role. Hopefully his hamstring will
mend quickly. Hopefully, he won't need it, but I believe he has a redshirt if
needed.I love the talent and depth at WR. This will be a storied
I think this dynamic duo along with the 2010 #1 nationally ranked HS QB will put
on some very good shows this season.I can't wait. This will be
something to see.
I think BYU has an amazing coaching staff. BYU is going to be very
underrated this year. Look for them to go either, I think, 10-2 or 9-3, with
loses only against Texas, TCU and maybe Hawaii.
12-0 going into a BCS bowl game, PTB!!Mark it down!
I agree with BaneOfHedgehog! while I am always over optimistic, I can't see BYU
loosing a game. Old Miss will only be difficult because of their O-line. I
believe that the extreme height of Old Miss's O-line will work against them in
the run game. This depends on all of BYU's D-linemen being healthy, They (BYU
D-line) are very solid and at six feet to six feet two, and around 300 pounds,
they will be impossible to get under and get leverage on. They will collapse
Old Miss's O-Line and free up the linebackers to tackle. No run game. Given
Old Miss's Q-back position, they will not have a game changing passing attack.
Their defense is still shaky, Heaps and Company will smoke them.Texas has great athletes, but they will still not be ready for what BYU
brings. (No designated Q-Back and new offense.)
Ben Cahoon will be the coach who makes the biggest difference this year. Watch
for BYU receivers to run crisp routes and never drop a ball! That was Cahoon's
style back in the 90's as a receiver at BYU. Go Cougars!
Isn't it time for kick-off yet...I can't stand the wait!
Cahoon is the best assistant coach in America - bar none.
How can Bronco watch every rep of every group? Does each group line up and wait
Bet with the passing success BYU will have in this and future years, tall, fast
receivers will become the norm.BYU recruit ranking will climb every
Why the indoor practice facility? You are going to disappoint alot of Ute
'fans' who come watch and learn how the game is played.
Wow, this coach is sensational. What a hire for BYU. I'd love to see a bomb
from the first down vs. Mississippi for a TD to start the game and get
Mississippi really nervous. I don't think we should predict losses.
If this team is as good as coaches are saying, there is no one they can't beat.
T -25 days and counting
who is on the offensive line for BYU this year?Who is the RB???Will
Mike Hague get any PT???Saw Jordan Pendleton last week playing golf, Kid
is Finally healthy and ready to go this year. Look out people.oh and its
sad to say, but Good job on the Transfer Riley Nelson, you will be sitting this
year and next. Sorry Buddy.But if Heaps is not going on a mission, he will
be the starting QB all 4 years for this school and have a chance to break alot
of records.Still absolutely hate that BYU is independent, i mean great for
the school and money and all that schedule, but common, win 11-1 and no
conference championship to show for it, just so so so sad, wont ever be allowed
in same breath as Notre Dame.
Love my Cougs, but just a couple critiques on the article. Even so he may have
said it, do we REALLY need to know that Cahoon gets "emotional" when
his guys try new things and they work? Probably could have/should have kept that
portion out. And on Fangupo's "pick", why do we need to know he
rumbled for a TD "though the play had already been whistled dead"?
That falls into the category of "who cares." With that beeing said,
let's hope for a strong football season.
"How can Bronco watch every rep of every group? Does each group line up and
wait their turn?"Whoa Nellie:My guess is he can
walk and chew gum at the same time. What a concept.
Whoa nellie:Ever heard of film??
@ binghamalum | 9:40 a.m. Aug. 10, 2011 South Jordan, UTLet me
help you out here friend. "But if Heaps is not going on a
mission, he will be the starting QB all 4 years for this school and have a
chance to break alot of records."Heaps is a 20 year old MARRIED
man. Haven't seen a lot of those guys on missions.
Whoa Nellie:"How can Bronco watch every rep of every group? Does each
group line up and wait their turn?"FilmMildred;Cahooon isn't the best assistent coach in the country but I am betting he is
one of the best receiver coaches around. He is exactly what the BYU receivers
need. BYU has several very talented young receivers. Cahoon has been there and
done that. Considering his size and mediocre athletic abilities, he did more
than many who had much more talent and potential. He has the players respect and
will teach the young receivers how to make the most of thier talent. ps: In case you were wondering, no one on these posts takes you seriously. You
are a minor amusement at best and usually less than that.
Love the enthusiasm, but gee whiz, why not just wait for the games to be played?
All of this hype and speculation is "over the top". Hope all of
these "dreams" aren't shattered. In the meantime, "Go
Herbert Gravy | 10:33 a.m. Aug. 10, 2011 "All of this hype and
speculation is "over the top". Hope all of these "dreams"
aren't shattered."Thanks for that, I'll log that away. Don't be
a stick in the mud. If you truly are a BYU fan, get a little excited for the
upcoming season. The football team may not go 12-0 and win 5 successive national
championships, but if you're not out of this world excited about the upcoming
season, you need to go to the nearest doctor and have them check your pulse.
I agree with Herbert Gravy. I hope BYU does well. I really do. It's just that
we've been let down way too many times when they play big-name opponents at the
beginning of the season. I'll believe it when I see it.
@Portland TB3 great reasons why we will beat Texas, TCU and Hawaii? No
offensive line, no offensive line and no offensive line.All 3
schools are replacing 4 OL's from the previous year. Oklahoma had the same
situation when we beat them on the road in 2009 and they had a Heisman winning
QB, All American TE, and NFL WR's and RB'S. Your only as good as
your OL. This is a weakness we can exploit.
Regardless of who I cheer for I am very excited for football to start.
Independent, 1 word...... oklahoma. we beat them with a team that will probably
be shown up by this years team!
I loved watching Cahoon when I was a kid, and hope that his genius shows through
in the kids he's working with now. Do we really have to wait 25 more days before
DNews Sports editorial staffAny chance that a two part post of mine that
was intended to be on this article about BYU's recievers and new Receiver's
coach Ben Cahoon can be deleted from the PAC 12 series article on USC and
transferred to this site. I'm not sure how I managed to get it on the wrong
board not having read the USC article. I was using my laptop in the early
morning hours with no mouse waiting for a train in Chicago...I must have made
the error. I was wondering why the posts wern't here. I wouldn't have known
they were on the USC board if it hadn't been for your acceptance message. They
are the parts about Ole Miss and Hawaii and were the first two posts on that USC
article.Sorry for the confusion
DNews Sports editorVery funny...that's not quite what I asked for. You
posted my message to you and not the comments I asked you to shift from the USC
article. I'm not the only one looking foolish...am I???
"Independent, 1 word...... oklahoma. we beat them with a team that will
probably be shown up by this years team!"Yes, that was a great
win. But you can't ignore the fact that it was by 1 point and was followed by
two humiliating losses to Florida State. As far as this year's team showing up
the team that beat OK goes, like I say, I'll believe it when I see it. I hope it
@ Where's Stockton ??? | 2:50 p.m. Aug. 10, 2011 Bowling Green, OH Please stop. This is now beyond funny and quickly approaching sad.
1984forlife.You're absolutely right... last comment on this articleI've often wondered about the dnews monitors...I've often thought they were
Hedgie and Chrissy B...didn't really think they'd post a note to the editor as
part of a blog though.
