    Hey! I"m a Hawaiian living here in Texas. It's been one of those years. The Longhorns, Cowboys, and Cougars have struggled. The Longhorns losing to Iowa State was like BYU losing to Utah State. I know all three teams will be back. Did'nt Notre Dame start the year with a new quarterback?--and they loss to Navy who loss to Air Force?---Can anybody beat TCU?

    If it wasn't for a hold on his longest return of the game, Hoffman would have had even more special teams yards. I am excited to see him play in the next few years. BYU does have some good young talent, and I am excited for BYU football in the coming years.

    I agree with SLC Watch.

    If the offense (recievers) can take the lead from the defense, and Anae can add a little unpredictability to his playcalling, the season can be salvaged, and there will be plenty to build on for next year.

    I hope they take the bye week and finish off strong. It will be interesting to see the conference standings going into the Utah game.

    We need to varry the offense. If Heaps isn't ready try Lark or someone else. I never thought I would see the day when BYU was a one dementional running team...The second comming must be looming.

    Big Hapa, I always enjoy your positive and supportive comments for the team. I disagree with you about the quarterback however. Let me explain what I see and I would enjoy your observations. 1)Leadership: Jake seems to have won over his veteran players. He should be able to call to task for failures and here is where I see he may still be hesitant to call to task peers. But I don't see the practices and hear his comments in games so I don't know. 2)Poise: I have seen few freshmen in 30 years with as much stay in the pocket, no happy feet, calm as Jake has shown. 3)Accuracy: Best measured not just by completions but by what has been dropped too. 10 of 18 was not "great" add the 5 drops by his receivers and his accuracy is 15-18=83.3% Freshmen are dropping most of these. 4)Distance:no one has outrun his distance yet. 5)Vision: Much improved, checking off 6)Confidence:still good. 7)Mobility: Very few sacks due to standing around. Biggest problem: Jake needs receivers making catches!

    There is always an up side to the game. Keep tight and mean defense the rest of this season depends on your play, the qb is not ready for prime time, so you guy's gotta be Da Man !
