Ernest,The question is, when will you convert? Stay out of KVN's
Utah fan pumping gasBoth KVN and Hoffman will be playing on Sunday
while you're still busy pumping gas in Beaver.btw, it is
possible for players to take out an insurance policy to protect themselves in
the event of a career-ending injury.
@UNCLE FRED"You will never regret obtaining your degrees."Freddy, they are risking millions for a what the Utah Legislature calls
a worthless degree i.e; Physical Education, Sociology. The two most popular
athletic degrees.Although Cody will never be drafted but Kyle should
have jumped in the draft.
Great decision Cody and Kyle. You will never regret obtaining your degrees.
Great examples to youth everywhere, not just in Utah.
Hmmmm, I find myself thinking about Matt Reynolds.Then again, there's
also Star Lotelelei who may end up the number one pick.Bottom line,
it's a tough call. If Hoffman needs some surgery as someone mentioned in
this thread, then it certainly makes sense to return to BYU ... I can't
imagine the combine and physicals going too well if he's not fully healthy.
Big Mistake!Look at Matt BarkleyHe went the extra year
to raise his NFL stock and its gone way down!One split second in a
game or practice and its over.Hoffman should take what stock value
he can in the NFL and improve on it in the future.A Bird in the Hand
is worth two in the bush!
@ Osgrath:The data you present of your family are purely anecdotal.
Studies clearly show the value of a college education compared to a high school
education when considering solely future earning potential. Thus, "wer"
makes a good point.
Hoffman was the best thing we had on offense this year. He'll need surgery
on his shoulder and hopefully he'll be back for Spring. Unfortunately his
speed is decent, but not NFL caliber. Maybe he could work on that during the
offseason also. There needs to be a radical change in philosophy
with our offense if we are to compete with that tough schedule next year. That
means not killing our QB by running him 20 times a game, and developing a more
vertical passing game.
Let’s set wer's mind at ease. Although I hold 3 college degrees (one
of each), and spent seven years as a college instructor, I don't see a
degree as the prime necessity for life. It all depends on what you plan to do
with or without it. I once worked for a guy who never finished high school; he
was wealthy because he knew how to make money. With my degrees I worked for
him. I discussed this just yesterday with my youngest (13) son. He
has three older brother who are doing exceptionally well for themselves. One got
a BYU MBA and is in a special executive program at Symantec with a track toward
top-level corporate management (good pay now, too). Another has a B.A. in
business but because of his genius for getting connected to people in power, has
put off law school: too busy and making too much money in a consulting gig. The
third makes more than the other two combined and put in a single semester at
UVU, but knows how to run a business well.I explained to the 13-year-old
that the degree guarantees nothing. You have to perform.
E.T.Sea Bass: Since you know it all, maybe you can answer the
Hoffman coming back is great for BYU and hopefully great for Hoffman!
Hoffman's smart, he can only improve his draft stock next year. He
probably would've been a late round pick this year and struggled to stick.
He's got the size and the hands but not quite the speed NFL teams are
Hoffman will be the leader on offense. Van Noy could be the leader of the
defense. I hope KVN comes back too. A special season could be the result.
It's good that Hoffman says he will "come back". The
troubling aspect in this (and with Van Noy) is that these players, among others
from other teams, get the idea that somehow don't need a college education,
don't need to fulfill a commitment that they made to the schools, forget
their team mates, and that they will, somehow, overcome extreme odds and make it
in the NFL.The vast majority of projected NFLers don't make it
in the pros and those that do average a two year career.'They
should get the money while they can and not risk injury in their senior
year,' some people say. There is some truth in that, but if they can't
avoid a bad injury in college, what are their chances playing on pro teams with
much bigger, faster, stronger, meaner players?I hope they fulfill
their dreams of playing in the NFL, but they chances in life once they get their
degrees and move on when they are more mature and better able to handle all the
strings that come attached with a pro career.
He is so awesome and good. Anyone know if he converted yet?
Happy that Hoffman is coming back. I don't care who the quarterback is
next year. BYU needs to get back to old school Cougar football - which means
throwing downfield 50 times every game. Both Hoffman AND ROSS APO should go
over 1,000 yards next year. No excuses.
Great for BYU, and Hoffman because he wouldn't make a roster in the NFL
(yet) at this point in his playing development.
And pray tell what does the 'Aggielove' crystal ball have to say about
the next Aggie coach? How long will he stay? LOLYou can
spout off about the coaches but predicting what will or will not happen with
Hoffman in the NFL is pretty silly... coming from an aggie.
To keep Doman as OC is to say we think Crowton was awesome. We think not! Lose
the Crowton leftovers now!
Thank goodness Riley is gone. Hoffman will have a QB that can actualy pass the
ball. Should be a great year for Hoffman. But for this to become reality Doman
needs to be out of the OC position. Let Doman watch and learn and grow and
develop. Doman just not ready to be the OC at a division I school. Please,
please, please, please BYU brass, relieve Doman of his duties.
First off, Doman needs to GO!Then right behind him is Bronco.Then
get Andy Reid.Btw. Hoffman won't see 50 plays in the NFL.
Big news indeed with many of the freshmen recruits headed for the mission field,
and 5 long-haul road games to Charlottesville, Madison, Houston, South Bend, and
Honolulu, and one of the best home slates in recent years with the Longhorns,
Yellow Jackets, Broncos, and Utes coming to Provo. Cody will definitely shine
as long as Taysom can deliver the ball. The Cougars definitely have to return
to their vertical passing game of old to take advantage of this very good BCS
Looking forward to 80 - 100 more receptions and another 1,000+ yards from
Hoffman. He will set receiving records that will never be broken at BYU. In my opinion, Hoffman coming back gives us a couple of wins that we
would not have gotten without him. As excited as I am, I can only imagine how
excited Hill, Munns and Olsen are.I know everyone is quick to crown
Hill as the starter for next year, but I'm wondering if his injury
doesn't open the door for Munns or Olsen as they work with the team in the
off season.Now if we can just convince KVN to come back for his
"Hoffman literally dropped into the laps of BYU coaches as a little-known
recruit from Del Norte in northern California."Really? I would
like to hear that story. It must have been strange.Does Dick know
what "literally" means? Does Dick have an editor?Otherwise
a good article. I am very pleased that Hoffman is coming back.
This is great news! I had no idea that the record was that attainable for
Cody.To be this close to breaking the BYU record and to know that
doing so would be just icing on the cake for a better shot at the NFL makes
sense to stay.Looking forward to seeing Taysom Hill and moving
beyond the uncertainty and underproduction of BYU offense.Having
Cody back as a target for one more season certainly helps!
Great news for the Cougars, and congrats to Mr. Cody "The Man" Hoffman!
Even if he change his mind and gets lured into the draft by the promise of
riches in the NFL, I'll still love and appreciate him for what he had done
so far for the Cougars. And to those who think the grass is not greener on the
other side, well, I think in the case of the NFL, if a kid gets a lucrative
offer, then there's no question. An NFL contract means green folks, plenty
of green for that matter. Even so, congrats to CH for deciding to return for
his senior year!Looking forward to see him, Apo, and others light up the
scoreboard next year!Go Cougs!
It won't matter if Hoffman stays if they don't clean out the offensive
coaches. That is still the weak link. I hope Bronco finally sees what all the
fans and donors see. It is time to change the offense.
