    I'm glad to hear they are working with Williams on how to read open running lanes. Last year, it seemed he would run up someone's back rather than adjust to where there was an opening. Brown does that quite well for a young guy. This is certainly a nice set of runners and I could see any of the 4 making good contributions but it will all come down to the O-line and keeping defenses honest with a good passing game. For that to happen, I also hope BYU will make more use of the tight-ends. That seemed to be what was lacking in the red/blue zone as well. Overall, the offense needs more well rounded play making spread across the field.

    Where are all the reports from Spring Ball praising the new receiver from California -- Kurtz? Has he disappeared? D-1 football too much for him? Taysom Hill can't get the ball to him? He was supposed to be the next Cody Hoffman, but there has been no glowing reports of his prowess on the field this Spring. What gives? All this praise for running backs -- that is not good news. BYU needs passing game improvement in order to beat the good teams, not improvement in the running game. The team cannot and will not dominate the line of scrimmage against real good teams and that means the pass game is the ticket to a 10 or 11 win season and national ranking. Yet, all we are hearing is run game, run game. It is only spring, but the word coming out of BYU spring practice is not all that encouraging.

    I thought Brown was going to transfer to Utah State. No?

    Good to see the DesNews enforcing their comment policy of no more than 3 comments from the same person on any given article.

    Maybe it means 3 comments that aren't a broken record of the multiple previous ones, or maybe on this article they're giving one individual 12 opportunities to actually say something of substance, who knows.

    Depth and ability is in the eye of the beholder. It looks like two yards followed by two yards then a sack followed by a punt. I won't fall for the usual spring optimism again. Without Williams...well, looks like the past to me. Quarterback runs and sacks with little ability to score inside the twenty.
