    Why didn't USA Today profile Brandon Doman? I guess the writers fell asleep when the BYU game kicked off at 10:00 ET.

    Brian Johnson will be a great OC for Utah. I'm very impressed with his play calling and his leadership on this team. I can't wait to see how he handles conference games. Good job Brian and good luck this week against Utah State.

    ute alumni,

    Brian Johnson didn't have the physical skills that most BCS quarterbacks have, but he got tremendous productivity out of what he had.

    He didn't go 26-7 in his career on his own, but he was a huge part of it.

    They don't raffle off Sugar Bowl MVP Trophies - the winner has to earn it. In case you didn't watch that game, Johnson was terrific.

    I can't wait to see how Johnson's offense and playcalling work out this year. It may be a steep learning curve, but in the long run, I have little concern that Brian Johnson will be a good OC.

    conference went 3 and 1. who beat the 1? I thought that was impossible. good luck brian. I never thought you were that great as a quarterback, but that is not necessarily important to be a good coach.
