I'm planning on being at UConn game. Should be a blowout, but then UVa
should have been a blowout. Too bad the UConn game is so early, October in New
England is gorgeous. I really do like independence and don't care a bit
about NC. Only 21 or so teams have won an NC since 1970 (AC NC that is). BYU is
one of them.That'll have to do for a while. I'm ok with
Glad for Independence, and I also don't care for NC. There
are plenty of good teams to play as it is.
I'm not going to directly blame the weather for the UVa loss either. I
would blame a call to pass toward the end of the game with the lead in inclement
weather when the smart thing would have been to rely on our excellent defense
that had been shutting the opponent down the entire game.
Go fast go hard--go fast go hard-- go fast go hard--PUNT.
At least Anae didn't blame the weather for the Virginia loss. After all If
memory serves...Virginia played on the same field in the same weather. They had
the same conditions and the same lengthy delays. Blaming the weather is a stupid
copout. So nice to see Mr. Anae recognizes that it wasn't the weather. But
why didn't he take credit for the loss. Because that loss was all Brad
Anae. The pass call was stupid. Punt the ball. Let the defense do its thing.
Leave with a win. And but for the insane rugby shuffle pass that he called, the
Utah came may well have been a win. So maybe BYU will have a nice season.
Offense looks better. Taysom claims he has been working on his timing and touch.
Hope so. Defensive secondary looks great. Defensive front could be really good.
But the good will come only if the team can overcome Anae's inept play
calling. He is the single biggest problem on the team.
Forget everything else.....just win Baby!
Anae is the reason we lost at U Va last year - a boneheaded pass play to the
flat deep in our opponent's territory on third and long. Who calls those
plays??As much as I love BYU football, I will not have optimism
until Anae is gone. We should go after an OC that knows how to leverage
BYU's strengths and doesn't go for gimmicky offenses (like we had last
@upac. The utes should be on their 7th oc in 7 years by then.
BlueHuskyMission Viejo, CAI'm planning on being at UConn game.
Should be a blowout------Actually, I'm counting it
as a loss for BYU. You should also. Your team is notorious for starting 1-2, but
it could be 0-3 this year.Conn is better than Virginia was, and you
couldn't even beat them.
I like the enthusiasm and the intent to open up the playbook and put pressure on
the defense. I'm hesitant to set any expectations for this coming season
and will wait and see if he can deliver on his promises.
U-PAC:I lol when I read your post, not because I believed it, but
pictured Mr. Magoo out there trying to see what was going on and instructing the
Ute cheerleaders on the next play to be run. Most funny post I have read in a
72coug12, who is Brad Anae?
Go fast, go hard. Go fast, go hard. KICK-OFF!
As long as BYU believes Hill is their man behind center they will never go far.
He can't throw. He is a scrambling QB and that's that. Look at his
accuracy last year...horrible. He can run but he sure can't throw. I would
make him a scat back, a running back or a receiver. Had the ball to someone else
who can be a deep threat long-ball thrower. Anae is a good guy, but the wrong
man for the job. I look for BYU to beat the patsies but struggle against all of
the powerhouses. I wouldn't be surprised if Texas blows them out of the
stadium, it will be ugly. Revenge is such sweet sorrow.
@ U-PAC:Funny you should mention Mr. MaGoo. At the rate the Utes are
going through offensive coordinators, he may be the only one left to choose from
before long. And as far as Utah beating the Y., it's obvious to
most knowledgeable pundits that their luck has finally run out with those
single-score, less-yardage wins. Hence, Utah's decision to cancel the games
with BYU for the next few years. Smart move. Trouble is, they've got to
come back to the table sometime. And then the payback will begin.
How about, "Score lots of points!" I think that's a good idea. No
one cares if you run an offensive play every 19 seconds. Scoring points is like
cash for a business. No cash, no business. No points, no wins. Would love to see some actual creativity in the offense. Would love to see
the day again where the fans could believe the Cougars can come back like they
used to do under Lavell. If BYU is down 10 points, at least for the past few
years, you can pretty much count on a loss. Hope it turns this year.
