Mony of the woes of the kicking game would be solved by moving the ball back two
more yards from the line of scrimmage and then BLOCKING anyone (and everyone)
that tries to get through the line. That's a fundamental of the
Five reasons for BYU's offensive struggles?1. D2. O3. M4. A5. N
So basically this article is saying that 2 things, injuries and coaching, are
causing this issue of poor offense. Can you help players not to have injuries?
Possibly, if you don't run the QB up the middle when you don't have
to, but it is difficult to stop the injuries. Can you help the poor coaching?
Definitely.Also, did we have big questions on our kicking game
before the season? Absolutely. Why were we not prepared? Are we not one of
the top Division 1-A schools? Let's get it together guys.
Boy!!!! Did RepresentBlue hit the nail on the head. If Anae was the worst
offensive coordinator in college football, Doman is the second. In Saturdays
game agaist Utah State we had a one on one with their defensive back several
times and couldn't complete a pass. BYU offensive looks like a jr. high
school offense and maybe thats giving them to much credit. If anyone watches
college football and if they watch their offenses, you can see that BYU
doesn't even compare. Don't tell me we have a Freshmen QB and we need
to keep it simple. Many school have a true or redshirt freshmen and they
don't hold him back. They coach him up. Very disapointed in BYU.
5 reasons for BYU doing poorly: - Right Tackle - Right
Guard - Center - Left Guard - Left TackleOr one
could say there is one reason: Inability of BYU to prepare and coach the
re: majmajorYep blame the line. I could see those guys saying,
"Hey lets run the draw instead of the kneel down." It's that kind
of LEADERSHIP that gives the whole team no confidences.
Could it be who they are playing? Utah State is a top 10 defense; Boise State
is in the top 20. Of course, the schedule doesn't get easier with Oregon
State and Notre Dame, but I'd be surprised if BYU doesn't put a lot of
points on the board in their remaining games.
Represent Blue you stole my post! I was going to do the same thing. Ha ha. The
starting offensive line was also a solid post.
Byu offense does not strugle. Where awesome at everythink.
Well said everyone...it is embarrassing to hear commentators constantly discuss
the bad kicking game. The coaches have rejected excellent kickers,
"didn't need another kicker" and watch the super stars miss a PAT.
Time to make many coaching changes.BYU should be the best team on the
field, ALL the time. Too many great athlete's who want to play and get
Finally an indepth analysis of why we are struggling. It is tiresome to hear
the arm chair qbs call for this coaches head or that coaches head. In football
as in life we must work with that which is on hand. Injuries have decimated the
ability to progress along the O line as well as at qb, running back, defensive
line etc. The loss of Juice et al also factor into the equation. Certainly
coaching can be questioned. That being said, let's remember we're all
in this together and let's see how it plays out the rest of the season.
Very likely Lark will be heaving passes in the near future to Apo, Hoffman and
TEs. There is little doubt the landscape changes every week so let's enjoy
the ride. After all we are still 4-2 and some exciting opportunities await us.
Players need to be conditioned for the hurry-up offense that is the way for BYU
to return to greatness, keep the defense guessing and winded. This is the
future of many college programs and the NFL. Bronco needs to be relegated to
defensive coach and Doman to QB coach. Holmoe needs to start a search for both
a new head coach and offensive coach, maybe Boscoe. That said had Bornco
prepared the team (as is his responsibility for the noise level at Rice and had
not gone for two against Boise BYU might be undefeated right now. Last year had
Bronco benched Heaps for the entire second half against both Texas and Utah, BYU
might have only had the loss to TCU we will never know. However, now it is time
for me to ask that my donations no longer help support the football program
until Holmoe makes changes!
I'll agree with RepresentBlue.I remember the 2011 Texas game
all too well. The moribund play calling in the second half had me pulling my
hair out. Lackluster play calling has seemed to be a feature of the BYU
offense.Rather than focusing on establishing the running game to
open the passing game, how about mixing up the passing game to open up the
passing game AND running game? Like more passes (short and long) to Apo and
Friel as well as Hoffman? Get Falslev and other receivers downfield.
Good article. Five accurate observations and showing how one problem flows into
the next. Too bad it was wasted on this batch of hatchet fans. Utah trolls
got one thing right: with fans like these, who needs trolls?
Y dad, sounds to me like both of us have injected less emotional responses than
those you refer to as trolls. It is tiresome to read continual calls for
dismissal or demotion of present coaches. I wonder how they might feel if when
they did something at their place of employment, others began seeking their
removal. We'd all be in a world of hurt as none of us are correct 100% of
the time, even in a single day.
Just give me a QB who can throw an accurate pass with at least a little umph on
it. Take me back to the old passing game. Enough of these hybrid runner-passers
and the spread-option or spread. They hardly ever work all that well. Especially
now that everyone has experience defending them. And especially when the
QB's running skills aren't all that great and they're too small
to take the resulting punishment. Heaps sudden and strange decline set us way
back. Should've hired Drage as OC -- gotta figure he'd light some
hineys on fire, at least.
Bronco is fond of saying, "Our team is perfectly designed for the results we
are receiving." If he wants better results on offense, he needs to follow
his own philosophy and redesign the offense by getting competent offensive
coaches!Oddman said "I wonder how they might feel if when they
did something at their place of employment, others began seeking their removal.
We'd all be in a world of hurt as none of us are correct 100% of the time,
even in a single day."The problem is we are not talking about
one bad play call, we're talking about 1 1/2 years worth of poor
performance. Employers that don't make changes when employees are
repeatidly showing incompetence, deserve to go bankrupt. Since we love our
Cougs, we would rather face the difficulty of replacing poor performers, than
see the program go down.We need an EXPERIENCED and creative
offensive coordinator. Doman can be the QB coach and learn from him. Bronco will
learn from his recent mistakes and take more responsibility for ALL facits of
game management. He must if he wants to win.
BYU should come down south here. There's severl decent kickers. Our boy
kicked a 48 yarder the other night. Certainly better than what the Y has done.
As I watched the Utah State game, I asked myself.."is Bronco having
fun"? Sure didn't look like it. Made me wonder if the rest of the team
is having fun. Don't think Dolman is. Wishing for better years to come.
