How about this report card? Offensive line coach: "F". Offensive
Really? Let's try those grades again:Offense: D- (the last
drive kept them from an F. But net, the offense was -1 point for the game.
It's tough to win when your offense has negative points. They also burned
critical time outs early in the 2nd half, uselessly in a close game.)Special teams: B+. Mostly really good play. They gave up critical yards and
time on the run back at the end, but it's not why the Cougs lost. See the
grade for the offense for the real culprit.Defense: A+. Great, hard
hitting defense that gave our team every chance to win. If our offense had
scored net 1 positive point, we would have won the game.Coaching: C-. It
would have been a lower grade, but Bronco finally showed some fire on the
sideline after the goal-line stand. Why go for two with your defense playing
that well and your offense with some momentum and fire?Overall: C.
It would have been a C- except this was a short week.
Maybe Boise States defense is good?
Coaching a C???? They grossly failed. The defense A+. What more could they have
done other than score? But that goal line stand!!!But what in the
blazes was the 2pt. conv. Greed. Our defense would have stopped them in OT and
their kicker was less likely to score than ours.
Both BYU and Boise St stunk on offense tonight.The problem as I see
it is the "Thursday night" game for ESPN.If a college team
is going to play a Thursday night game, then they should not play a game the
weekend before. (and obviously the next Sat two days way.)This will
work like a BYE game but it also lets players heal and coaches can implement a
game plan and players can learn it.I'm glad that when I played
there were no BYE weeks and no Weds, Thurs, or Friday games. And none on Sunday
either. It is hard enough as a college student to get back on campus at 3 or 4
AM from a road game and get back into synch for classes on Monday morning.
I'd hate to have gotten home that early on a Monday morning had we played
on a Sunday.
I told you not to run Robert Anae out of town BYU fans.
Hey Gurney! Just a friendly request. How about adding coaching as a category? As
a upset, embarrased Cougs fan, I certainly know what I'd grade Bronco on
the last 2 weeks. Our team is not ready to play offensively. Yes Doman is the
OC, but Bronco is a Head Coach. He's gotta get this thing figured out.
Riley Nelson is a great competitor and has plenty of heart, But my wife can
throw a football with more zip and accuracy than he can. Seriously, she can.
Riley cannot throw the ball more than 15yds downfield without it turning into a
wounded duck. He makes terrible decisions and is a fumble/int waiting to
happen. Doman shows in his playcalling that he is aware of this, every route is
under 15yds, unless we get into a 3rd and long. We will not beat any decent
defense or coaching staff as long as we run this pathetic offense. Taysom Hill has been recognized since springball as being faster, stronger,
and smarter than Riley. Not to mention has a vastly better passing arm and
upside. And he's a freshman! There is no reason Riley should start another
game for BYU. Taysom is already a better Qb. He almost single-handedly won the
game for BYU if it weren't for a terrible 2pt conversion call. He carried
4 BSU defenders into the endzone! Seriously, its time to make some changes. We
lose way too many winnable games.
Holme needs to take over as head coach, demote Bronco to defensive coordinator
and sack Domam and Nelson. Offensive play calling and going for two = F.
Get used to it. This is and will be Brandon Doman's legacy! Play calling
and personnel choice is every bit as much to blame as Riley's abysmal
performance.Bronco needs to clean house!
Another example of poor coaching decisions and lack of team preparation for this
game. BYU didn't utilize their talent well, example RB #21, their tight
ends, and always trying to run up the middle and getting stuffed, constantly.
gdog, I don't think Robert Anae was any better than Doman. Running him out
of town was not the problem. The problem was when we got rid of Norm Chow years
ago. He was a very good OC and because he got stuck in a bad situation he was
run out of town. Anae failed his chance. Doman should be given at least to the
end of this year to see if he can start to call a different game. But if he
does not adjust his play calling, he too needs to move on and let a true OC in
his place. We need some experience from an offensive minded coach. Our head
coach is too defensively minded.
Those few vocal ones who think Bronco needs to go are graded "F".
I'm sorry, but these grades are absolutely ridiculous. How can you give
the defense anything but an A+ for last night. The offense continually put them
in bad positions but they still held the Boise State offense scoreless. HUGE
congrats to the defense.As for the offense, there is no other grade
than F. 5 turnovers and just over 100 yards before the last drive. The
QB's completed only 42% of the passes. The rushing leader was the backup
quarterback. There is no other way to put it...the offense was dreadful and
deserves no higher than an F.
Offense FOffensive Coordinator FDefense A+Defensive
Coordinator A+Head Coach C-Stupid decision to go for 2 with no
timeouts left.Doman to quote someone else "is over his skis."Bench Nelson.Play Hill.Look for new OC this winter.
What does the defense need to do for an A+. Boise has never been shut out at
home like that. I realize this is not the Boise of the past few years, but give
me a break. Solid A for the defense, A+ if they catch that interception and pull
the 3-and-out for the final drive (last last first down iced it).F's all around for the offense and their coaches.Bronco -
don't let Riley lie to your face. He will always say he is ready because he
is a seriously tough dude. The facts of the game prove otherwise. Your depth
chart was bogus too. I think Lark is a a great guy and would never quit on the
team, but after the lies he's taken from you coaches, I'd be really
impressed to see him do anything but walk away from the team this week. That kid
Offense get an F-.
With an experienced QB and many returning starters on offense, this really
should be a better offense than last year. I am at a loss. Are the last 2 games
just a total choke job by the OC and QB? The O-line is definitely worse than
last year.Agree that the Defense should be an A. But sooner or
later, a strong-armed qb is really going to exploit our slow D-Backs. Opposing
receivers are behind our defensive backs on long balls on just about every
