GO COUGS!!! BYU is improved and will win on the road in a hostile environment.
The O-Line will get it done. BYU 31 Washington 23
I heard byu's 2nd team O-line was better than any other MWC teams 1st string
Twinkees,donuts & gravy. The byu fat boy club needs help. They are slow!
Show me that they are improved don't tell me. We will know after this weekend.
They had better improve from last week. How many more hits does the BYU brain
trust think Hall can take??They had better improve from last year,
as well. They were the most overrated/under achieving part of the team.
I can't tell if Matt Reynolds has bad feet or is taught bad technique, but it
looked to me he got beat by taking a bad angle. Instead of taking an angle to
intercept and force the DE outside and upfield, he backpedaled, then lunged at
him, missed, and Max took the punishment.He looked a lot like his
brother who got toasted both games against UCLA last year, and that doesn't bode
well with two Pac-10 teams coming up.
I am confused how you credit 50% of the mistake to the defender. I am pretty
sure the defender didn't make a mistake on that play. Hold them accountable for
the mistakes and don't place blame on the defender. How do they expect to
correct the mistakes when they won't take the blame for them?
I agree with bad technique or bad feet! It comes down to 'inexperience' on
Matt's part and the fact that his brother made a 'couple' of mistakes hiking the
ball. Hello??? - are the coaches watching???
He did accept the blame, but I don't think it's irrational to exculpate a player
to some measure, when his opponent makes a great play. And he's obviously not
saying the defender made a mistake, he's just acknowledging that a small mistake
by the o-lineman was blown up (to a touchdown) by the outstanding play of the
I would bet that the 2ed string Defensive line, could consistantly "out block"
the starting offensive line. (passing and rushing)Because they are
more aggressive, athletic and lighter. There is a point at which heavier ain't
always a Good Thang, and the BYU offensive line is an excellent example of
Fatter means slower and less athletic.I feel like the kid that said
"the king has no clothes" Everyone sees the same poor performance out of the
offensive line, week in and week out!!!
Max needs to bare some of the blame for the lost fumble in the endzone. He took
too much time, checked off his first option. Maybe it was a bad play call as
well but Max has to realize where he is on the field, be especially aware of the
blindside pressure (which we know BYU has struggled to defend the last two
seasons) and get rid of the ball quickly, even if it's a throw away.
He took half the blame. I saw the play, the player had a straight shot at the
quarterback. It looks like a great play because of how poorly Reynolds played
it. The defender just had to run straight at Hall. Didn't even need a juke move
or anything.If we let the players off by saying that the defender
was just too good stop, good luck getting any improvement!
How about they start letting daddy's kids play. They are obvously getting beat
bad on the back side and that is always(atleast for the last few years) filled
by a Reynolds. I doubt they'd be playing if dad wasn't a coach. Improve by
getting rid of the Reynolds boys and save your QB some head aches. Every lineman
will get beat eventually but the back side tackle is consistantly getting beat
at BYU so maybe something or someone needs to change.
The slim yoots are more to your liking? Cougar fans like your comments, it
reminds us why we are BYU fans. Keep reading BYU articles, ol' buddy, since the
ewe stories are so vapid. As a state college grad you'll probably need to borrow
wah wah enough crying about the line. They will do their job this week and did a
fairly decent job last week. You guys sound like a bunch of babies on here.
Imagine that, a Reynolds giving up a sack and a fumble, sounds like a replay
from last year.
It isn't the fault of the Reynolds boy, didn't you read the article? It was 50%
the fault of the defender. That darned guy is supposed to find someone to hit
before he goes after the quarterback even if the OL moves out of his way. Didn't
you know that? (Extreme sarcasm noted)I think OL coach Weber can't
blame the Reynolds boys or his job might be in jeopardy. (No sarcasm noted)
I want to know why Max Hall was even in in the fourth quarter. If you younger
Qbs need so much experience let them play and hold the lead. There was no need
for the hits/ bell ringer etc.
I meant to say how about they STOP letting daddy's kids play instead of START
letting daddy's kids play. TO Re: I got itI love the
sarcasm and I totally agree. Well put
Bell ringer was in the 3rd quarter. But with how boring that games was I can see
why you thought it was later.
Hall was in because we have to look good in the bcs beauty contest and beat uni
by at least 30 pts. If we don't we go down in the polls.
Big. Fat. Slow. Weak. Doesn't it say something that we can even rush for 100
yards against a D-II team! Technique is no substite for athleticism: it's more
often a crutch. Listen, games are not won "on paper" The OL needs to drop 20-30
lbs of blubber per man, get lean, get mean, and learn how to play smash-mouth,
run the ball down your throat football!!! Then maybe D won't pin it's ears back
and run right by one Reynolds or another, untouched, en route to a backside
BYU by 2 TDs. Start crying yooties.
Nobody is impressed with talk. BYU has never beaten Washington in Seattle and
usually get blown out. What makes you think this year will be any different?
Beat a BCS team on the road first Cougs then tell us how good you are.
Who are you calling fat and slow? I dare you to say that to their faces!
Too many people in this blog without a clue. Sounds like a bunch of arm-chair
football players. The Reynolds are great players but not perfect (no one is!).
The Y is a good team that will give it their best every week. How can anyone
ask for more than that?
Dear Hey TedIs this what my tithing dollars have purchased in
educating you at BYU Provo - someone who puts down others because of his
"opportunities for learning"? I am disappointed if this is the case. If you
have educated yourself on your own dollar rather than the tithes of the
faithful, I apologize for the misconception.
You bloggers are pretty idiotic. We didn't rush more because the pass was there
41 of the, with 36 completions for 565 yards. Duh, Yes Max took a couple of
hits, that happens in football games. Give it up on all this whining and get
over the fact that NIU is not a Division I team. They played well and still got
beat. And stop maligning the Reynolds family. These guys from father to sons
have given a lot to BYU.
If the blind side has been susceptible for the past several years, you wonder
why they don't put their best lineman there to pick it up. The QB has some
chance to dodge any other blown assignments, since he can see them coming, but
missing the back side is tantamount to manslaughter. If they have put their
designated best lineman there, we could be in for a long season.
It is true the Reynolds have given a lot to BYU....especially to the BYU QBs...
alot of head aches and near concussions
Why can't we all just get along? Go Utes.
The O line is good. They will be great by the end of the game tomorrow! Y by
17. These dogs should be scared of CATS!!!
BYU's quest for perfection is dumb and they think they are a great team. They
lost to Tulsa and UCLA last year and in their rematch of UCLA bowl game they
just barely beat a 6 and 6 UCLA by a blocked field goal and that game should
have been won by the better team that night which was UCLA.
