Sneer all you wish, my insolent friends, but Riley was a good QB and with him at
the helm, BYU was a good team. I feel confident that Riley could have beaten
Texas. They were not great, but good. They started bad and got better. I like
that. Utah last year, not so much. Started great and got lost
somewhere along the way. No wonder Utah fans, as evidenced on BYU's
boards, are so psychotic. September cannot come soon enough!
Riverton CougarYou've misjudged our troll friends from the
hill. In the brave new world of Utedom, wins and losses are irrelevant; the only
thing that matters is how many "BcS-calibre" teams U play. Losing to one
of the worst teams in the country (Colorado) counts just as much as losing to
Ditto Cahoon's favoring the short guys who just catch the ball, time after
time. Wanna-be's believe, champions are, its not about believing, its
about doing, about being, about relishing the opportunity to win, not fearing to
lose. Hoping this year the Cougs will just be the champions, love the chance to
Chris B, I'm guessing you drive a 1 series BMW on a lease?
@CougarBlue... hopefully the wr's will know where their qb actually is and
what he is going to do this year... run or throw. Actual pass plays versus
bailing out a scrambling qb. It's not easy being a WR in the cougar offense
right now. Cahoon knows that and will coach them up.
Stufoo:Well said. The problem is the trolls on here don't care about
that. The ONLY thing they care about is denigrating BYU no matter how illogical
they sound. Their obsession knows no bounds. Note who is the first (with rare
exception) to post on just about every BYU article.
Chris B, is Colorado a BCS quality team?
@ Chris B. Its interesting that you make fun of WAC teams. We all remember some
through beatings you Utees took from a former WAC team in Boise State!
Receivers are nice to bad no one can throw!!
I wish all BYU coaches interviewed as well as Cahoon. It's nice to hear
some specific constructive criticism instead of smoke screens and hot air.
Hoffman is gonna be fun to watch this year.
Dear Otis. You have to catch the vision before you can catch the ball. Step
one first then step 2.Receivers who are where they are supposed to
be will make the QB look good. You could see through the interactions last year
between receiver and QB the receiver was not where he was supposed to be. 54-10
you should know this, you have Jordan Wynn who has made some very lousy throws
himself. It takes two in this game. One to throw and one to catch. If both
are not together it doesn't matter how accurate the QB is. A QB throws to
a spot and the receiver is expected to be at that spot. Period. Not closer or
nearly, but at that spot. Go back and look at some of the Utah games and you
will see the same issue.
I like the high expectations. Hoffman has shown he can catch the ball, run with
it, and block very well. Apo, although a lot of potential, isn't quite
there yet. I would like to see someone reliable returning kicks besides Hoffman,
however. I just think you are risking your best offensive player by putting him
counterintelligence,By "great season" you mean losing to all
the BCS quality teams you play and winning another WAC championship?
Now if they only had someone who could throw it to them. The real
question is - Can they block?
Good luck to all the receivers. Cahoon makes it sound so easy. I can remember
some of the catches he made while at BYU. If it was close to him, he'd
make the grab. Let's see how he can instruct the players to be like him.
Great article. Call me naive, but it might be better for the receivers to
actually start catching footballs, rather than catching Cahoon's vision.
