...In evaluating his team's condition, BYU offensive coordinator Brandon Doman
said, "I think it was pretty clear that we can be pretty good."...To improve yourself, you must recognize your weaknesses first.Living in denial will not help.
Pretty funny stuff Brad. The funniest is Brandan Doman's comment: "I
think it was pretty clear that we can be pretty good.""He really
said that? Wow.
DN has not made any mention of Utah LB Trevor Reilly being named Pac-12 Player
of the Week? Must still be too embarrassing for the staff to bring up.
"Rock On would have to call a false start on that. Three touchdowns and 145
rushing yards in three games doesn't look good to him."Why
would it be clear to ANYONE that BYU "can be really good?" Where is
the evidence?Remember three running backs saying "Our goal is
to rush for 300 yards a game?" The debate online was "is that average
300 yards," "Have a 300 yard game?" It is clear now that they
should shoot for 300 yards for the season, and if they get to that, 300 yards
for the year each. Right now they are on pace for 580 yards for the SEASON.I've been saying this since the day Bronco came on board: Shut up and
play. Please. You embarrass yourselves and you embarrass BYU alumni. The most
embarrassing part of Saturday wasn't the performance, as bad as it was, it is
most embarrassing in comparison to the incessant pre-season bragging -- before
anything is earned.That talk runs from Bronco, through Doman, to the
players. Interesting you don't hear it from the old-school-LaVell-guy, Lance
Reynolds, though I will admit you occasionally hear it from his boys.

were not funbles!
@DEW CougarsUnlucky is when something bad happens once. When it
happens 7 times, it is due to poor execution, not bad luck.And
you're right - they were fumbles, not funbles. Although I had fun watching them
Never mind, right after I posted, they put it in a different article. Nice work.
DEW, 2 of them were "give-aways" more than takeaways (and one of those
when the game was getting out of reach), but even then, the Ute D forced 5
turnovers on top of that. Give credit where it's due and realize your team was
There does appear to be multiple cases of denial within the BYU coaching staff.
I cannot remember too many teams whose offensive coordinator is on the
sidelines, where it is difficult to see the field and what is happening. Since
this idea to go independent, there has been way too much talk from BYU and
little if any results on the field. The writer has this pegged just right today.
The offense is dismal with only brief signs of possibility. No running game at
all. BYU seems to be a 1-half team. They seem to play only the first half and
then fold. Regarding exposure, well, you got exposed on national TV. I really
cannot see too many fans continuing to watch the remainder of the schedule with
such powerhouses as Idaho State Univ. The athletic department needs to take a
close look at this coaching staff and make some changes. When the head coach
says that his primary focus is not putting together a competitive team, it's
time to decide if BYU athletics is going to be around. I am still looking for
that "bigger purpose" to show up.
BYU made a mistake in not hiring CLARK who is SUU offensive cordinator. The
other mistake was not keeping Sorensen who is the SUU QB. The offense for SUU
has been fun to watch this year scoring 30 plus points per game to BYU 10. I am
sure most BYU fans would now agree!
Brandon Doman needs to join the rest of the OC's in the country up in the booth
so he can see the other teams' defense. Moreover, he won't be down there to
talk and talk and talk to his boys, making them right this loss off with the
unsound notion that they "can be good..."

Moreover, he won't be down there to talk and talk and talk to his boys, making
them right this loss off with the unsound notion that they "can be
good..."----------I'll bet Chow never even sees what
Utah's defense does. I'll bet between series he is studying still photos of the
pre-snap formations, talking with the other coaches, analyzing what defensive
front was used on which down, which coverages, planning the next series.Chow has been a lineman, a receivers coach, a QB coach and has the
advantage of understanding line play. Doman's comments in other articles show
he is clueless. "The most important thing is who is running the ball, next
is scheme." Eight in the box it doesn't matter if Earl Campbell or Jerome
Bettis is running it. The back is going to be punched in the mouth and dropped
for a loss.As a fan, your team wins some, loses some. A loss is one
thing. Incompetence another. Doman is the Peter Principle incarnate, which is
bad enough. Denial is worse.
