Interesting fact, Paul Tidwell was the head coach at Snow College and Bronco was his defensive coordinator and linebackers coach. Interesting to see the roles reversed.

The 3-3-5 is effective because it changes the pre-snap reads of the O-line. Despite the vitriol directed at Riley Nelson, the biggest problem with BYU's offense, this year and last, has been it's inconsistent line play. Hopefully they've had enough time to study the film so the line understands their assignments and can protect Lark. Otherwise BYU fans will be asking why Bronco played an inexperienced Lark when Riley was at 50%.


Why so many Cahoon quotes Dick? Is he the OC for the bowl game?
I know he's the OC next year. Please break the story Friday.

Best news of the day from Troy06. I'll jump on that rumor of a new OC but would prefer someone with experience rather than try to break somebody in and allow them to, "learn from their mistakes." I think we've provided enough learning at the OC level...time for some actual competency.
