No matter what Joe runs if the kids buy into it and the parents support him even
if they don't agree with what he does, this team will be successful. But if
he does run the option and it doesn't work all the anti-run/option football
gurus out there will say I told you so regardless of all the unseen underlying
factors they know nothing about that contribute to unsuccessful programs. On the
flip side if he lines up 5 wide and airs it out 40+ times a game and fails no
one will say a word about his offense, they'll just say he's a bad
coach or his play calling was terrible. "There are two things
every man in America thinks he can do, work a BBQ grill and coach college
football." - Greg SchianoThat statement is true at the high
school level too.
@ RockarollaI somewhat agree with you. I think you need to do more than
just run the option. However, I still think that it can be your bread and
butter. Generally speaking, I don't think kids care what offense you run,
as long as it works.
Time will tell on this new coach. Ed Larsen left the program in a good spot.
If coach Joe just runs the option he will lose all his great prospects to other
schools like Timpview. Kids don't want to play on a team that does nothing
but run the ball. The kids today are more athletic and want to be involved in
an offense that is exciting. There was a time and place for the option and that
tim passed 10 years age. Joes dad did a great job at Skyline with the option
but I don't think Skyline hasn't been much of a threat for the past
several years.Good luck, but don't run the option.
I just became a Timpanogos fan. It's a shame that Skyline couldn't
land Joe. How great would it have been for Joe to bring the program back up
(just like his dad)? I'm still shaking my head over their selection.
Seriously.Timpanogos just became a contender. It'll be a good
region. With Wong at Mt View, Joe at Timp, and the traditional strength of Orem
- the Utah County portion will be tough. Oly and Corner Canyon will make noise.
Murray and Skyline, sadly, will battle it out to keep from finishing last.
Does anybody know if he plans on running the option, like he ran in high school
and spent much of his career coaching?
Hey Ken, was that the same bus that K Whitt threw Brian Johnson under? Just
He is probably the best running back coach in the state, at any level!
Ken and Uncle Rico,Coaching is a fickle and cutthroat business!!! How many
other coaches are only at a school one or two seasons? What about the OC job at
the U? How many different coaches in the last seven years? Was coach Whitt
throwing them under the bus?Go Cougs beat the Ducks!!! Rise Up!!!
Congrats Joey and Timpanogos.Go T-Birds!!!!And before
anyone thinks they're smarter than they are, and I made a boo boo, Joey
played his college ball at SUU.
@KenDidn't Coach Anae have something to do with his leaving? I
heard that he was released so late, there was no other coaching jobs available.
Glad he landed somewhere, best wishes to him.
Glad he landed somewhere. He's just another one that Bronco threw under
the bus after bringing him from Navy where he had a good position. Low move by
Bronco to bring all those guys in and then not even give them a true shot,
throwing them all under the bus to hide his job as a poor head coach.
