    Looks to me like we are going 2 touchdowns per game backwards replacing Ben Cshoon, a real pro, with Aaron Roderick. Pretty confusing to me.

    Great choice Kearsly, Anae has a long history of sending byu linemen to the NFL.

    We're going to miss Anae here, he did a great job for us. Obviously BYU has a great defensive mind in Mendenhall and to sy otherwise is silly jealousy.

    Anae will do great, for sure.

    Confused et al,

    So if we lose Bronco, exactly WHO do we get?? I think he's the best we can get right now and one of the best minds for defense that there is. He just needs someone to run the offense. Imagine if we could have averaged 1 more TD per game this year...quite a different story vs. BSU, Utah, ND, etc.

    I fear that if people succeed in driving Bronco off with a sharp stick, we will long for the day we finished 8-5. But at least the anklebiters on the hill will be happy.

    So Bronco caused the problem, and Cahoon is collateral damage because of Bronco ineptness?

    Come on, Bronco "IS THE PROBLEM"!

    Tom is too ennamoured about Bronco as much as bronco was with Nelson... Both will fail.

    Sad to see Cahoon and Dupaix go but a change was needed. Hopefully this is the right way to go.

    Tom Holmoe IS doing something.

    He was keenly aware of BYU's struggling offense and has, at the very least, talked with Bronco about the need for change. Bronco, in turn, has initiated changes that will hopefully lead to significant improvement.

    The letting go of Cahoon and DuPaix, as has been previously stated, is simply the unfortunate collateral damage that normally occurs when a new coordinator takes over.

    Bronco preaches accountability. How could he hold Anae accountable if he didn't give Anae complete control of the offense, including the ability to hire his own staff?

    Collegiate football is a business and Bronco is the CEO with Anae as the COO. Can't have Anae as OC with personnel not to his liking. The boss isn't always right, but he is always boss. I see the usual trolls are cataleptic.

    Just tells you that "Bronco World" is just another amusement park ride...

    When his fan base ( who he has bashed in the past) starts drying up the donations coming in, then maybe Tom Holmoe will have to do something... Not likely.. but we can always hope.

    the "Letting go" of Cahoon is a mistake.. plain and simple....

    Lose a 2 star commit, gain a 4 star commit? Sounds good.
