    No matter what Joe runs if the kids buy into it and the parents support him even if they don't agree with what he does, this team will be successful. But if he does run the option and it doesn't work all the anti-run/option football gurus out there will say I told you so regardless of all the unseen underlying factors they know nothing about that contribute to unsuccessful programs. On the flip side if he lines up 5 wide and airs it out 40+ times a game and fails no one will say a word about his offense, they'll just say he's a bad coach or his play calling was terrible.

    That statement is true at the high school level too.

    @ Rockarolla
    I somewhat agree with you. I think you need to do more than just run the option. However, I still think that it can be your bread and butter. Generally speaking, I don't think kids care what offense you run, as long as it works.

    Time will tell on this new coach. Ed Larsen left the program in a good spot. If coach Joe just runs the option he will lose all his great prospects to other schools like Timpview. Kids don't want to play on a team that does nothing but run the ball. The kids today are more athletic and want to be involved in an offense that is exciting. There was a time and place for the option and that tim passed 10 years age. Joes dad did a great job at Skyline with the option but I don't think Skyline hasn't been much of a threat for the past several years.

    Good luck, but don't run the option.

    I just became a Timpanogos fan. It's a shame that Skyline couldn't land Joe. How great would it have been for Joe to bring the program back up (just like his dad)? I'm still shaking my head over their selection. Seriously.

    Timpanogos just became a contender. It'll be a good region. With Wong at Mt View, Joe at Timp, and the traditional strength of Orem - the Utah County portion will be tough. Oly and Corner Canyon will make noise. Murray and Skyline, sadly, will battle it out to keep from finishing last.

    Does anybody know if he plans on running the option, like he ran in high school and spent much of his career coaching?

    Hey Ken, was that the same bus that K Whitt threw Brian Johnson under? Just curious.

    He is probably the best running back coach in the state, at any level!

    Ken and Uncle Rico,
    Coaching is a fickle and cutthroat business!!! How many other coaches are only at a school one or two seasons? What about the OC job at the U? How many different coaches in the last seven years? Was coach Whitt throwing them under the bus?

    Go Cougs beat the Ducks!!! Rise Up!!!

    Congrats Joey and Timpanogos.

    Go T-Birds!!!!

    And before anyone thinks they're smarter than they are, and I made a boo boo, Joey played his college ball at SUU.

    Didn't Coach Anae have something to do with his leaving? I heard that he was released so late, there was no other coaching jobs available. Glad he landed somewhere, best wishes to him.

    Glad he landed somewhere. He's just another one that Bronco threw under the bus after bringing him from Navy where he had a good position. Low move by Bronco to bring all those guys in and then not even give them a true shot, throwing them all under the bus to hide his job as a poor head coach.
