Robert Anae doesn't have an innovative bone in his body. He was a spread
guy 5 years after the spread was hot, and now he's 5 years late on the
tempo craze too. I've been a BYU fan since I was 12 years old, and Ty
Detmer won the Heisman. But Bronco and his revolving staff have all but killed
any emotional attachment I had to this team. Give them one more year, and then
let them all walk.
Stop it children.
Scott FarcusBeaver, UTY Grad / Y Dad"You mean,
dismal when the Cougs September Bowl Game ends in defeat."No,
because unlike U, September is not our bowl game. Keep up with the times,
Scott. And the Anae offense knows how to beat Utah. Is that the
WAC Utah or the PAC Utah? Is there a difference?
Does anyone know who this Chris Stewart is?He has never been
mentioned before when talking about BYU QBs.
Utah and BYU want to go fast on offense. Sounds great except, despite having
qualified coordinators this upcoming season, both teams have a ton of offensive
question marks. Going fast can keep a defense confused and tired.
But turnovers and three and outs can put your own defense on the field too much
when playing too fast. You want more plays overall but you also want more plays
than your opponents, better field position, and time of possession if you can.
We will see what playing faster means in Happy Valley and on the
hill this fall.
I know Eddie, no one will be able to catch us. We are super speedy.
Doesn't matter what offense BYU will be running since we have already seen
what an Anae offense looks like.Wins against WAC teams and losses
against BCS teams.
Go Adam! We are rooting for you!
Y Grad / Y Dad"Life will be pretty dismal if U don't even have
your September bowl game to reflect on."You mean, dismal when
the Cougs September Bowl Game ends in defeat.
ETB,I guess you are hoping that BYU's speed is as good as the u
at making it to the top of the PAC 10.2. Me thinks that the Cougar offense,
will reach greater speed to many end zones than u will to the top of the
conference of chumps.
We're all about speed.
Maybe I'm reading to many articles, but I think the coug o is trying to go
fast! I'm getting tired of hearing it. I just want them to score, fast slow
or whatever, just score! Maybe there is just nothing new for them to write
about? Oh Chris, you try so hard, but fail time and time again as is proof by
the way your comments are taken off so often.
The best part about this article is the Video interview clip of Anae. Awesome.
I love the way he answers some of the questions from the ridiculous UT press
corps. He's great.Looking forward to an exciting year this
How is that Chris B comments will disappear? Something's not right...
Oh, and ChrisB, how many years in a row has your wonderful basketball team lost
Worse than that, Chris, how will your seniors feel being the ones to break the
string? Life will be pretty dismal if U don't even have your September
bowl game to reflect on.
Umm, Chris B, not embarrassed at all! Disappointed maybe, but not embarrassed
for sure. It's just the way the ball bounced the last four years and I for
one congratulates the Utah seniors for that notable achievement. But why do you
still care? C'mon dude, ma'am, or whatever you are? The Ute caravan
has moved on, hasn't it? We are now at your rear view mirror on your way
to bigger and better things or so we have been constantly reminded. So
what's with all the hate still? The real measure of how great your program
is is how soon you can rise to the top of your new conference, and I'm
rooting for your Utes to do just that. I wish them much success and likewise to
my Cougars. Go Cougars! And good luck to the Utes too!
"You guys excited to lose 4 in a row to big brother Utah?"Sorry, little sister, but I just don't see it happening this year. Our
lucky win last season was the end of the line; the Utes will have to live with
the bitter taste of the inevitable September 21st, 2013 loss for the next four
years.4-8 or maybe 5-7 is the best we can hope for in 2013, but at
least we're getting used to this couch potato thing.
It is not easy to retool an offense, especially when its biggest weakness,
Oline, is still a question mark. I like the hurry up style of offense, it is
exciting and fun to watch, but more than that I like an offense that is good and
can actually move the ball and score so to me that is what matters not how fast
they are but how good they are. If they are good then the hurry up will be just
fine by me, if they are not good then I really don't care what they are
Interesting to hear about Adam Hine emerging at running back. It really sounds
like shaking off the mission rust has really been his problem, but it is good to
see him having some success. Ironically, it was him who was the four star
recruit out of high school. He was also recruited in the same class as Eddie
Lacy of Alabama, Knile Davis of Arkansas, and Stepfan Taylor of Stanford. He was
right there around their same ranking. If he turns out to be a similar caliber
back as those three, then running back could be a real position of strength next
year for BYU. Of course, it all starts with the offensive line, so we'll
