    Good for you Zach, it is a job that you feel passionate about. Do a good job for the Y.

    If Nyborg CAN'T restore sanity on a situation that had spun out of control, maybe he could restore it by spinning the out of control situation. It's not the most ideal method obviously, but at least that strategy would still fall right in line with popular scandal mechanisms common in cougarville.

    BYU football didn't lose much at the DFO position with this hire.
    Not totally discounting this year, 2015 could be special if the components of a close-knit staff and talented student-athletes come together like they're appearing. Good hire.

    Go Cougars!!

    Congrats to the Y for getting their guy. Sounds like a great hire and a great fit. Hopefully he can get sanity restored on a situation that has spun totally out of control.

    Some of these comments are baffling to me. The University of Utah is known as a prestigious, well respected university. Fortunately (some say luckily) they received an invitation to join the PAC 12, which their administration wisely did. I do not understand the comments coming from the Utah Fans bagging on BYU. I would think fans of a respected university would want to reflect that prestige and respect in their comments, rather than sink to childish chipping at a university that is struggling somewhat(BYU). Also, shouldn't you accomplish something in your present conference before you bag on others. The Utes have done nothing to prove they belong in the PAC 12 other than provide cannon fodder for the Universities that do belong there. Prove you belong first, and then make your comment reflect the prestigious university that you are fans of.

    @ U-PAC et al.

    Nice doom and gloom forecasting. BYU sinking into abyss ... wow. I know that you have inside information about the powers that move football. And they all hate BYU like you do. So depressing. I'm glad you took time from your busy schedule to warn us benighted BYU fans.

    I'm out in the back eating worms. Woe is me. Poor BYU, doomed to oblivion.

    I guess I'll just have to enjoy my Huskies (and to a lesser extent, the Beavers) beating U every year. What will you do without BYU to hate? Certainly can't bag on your superiors in the PAC-12. I guess there's always Utah State.

    BYU can take care of itself and will sort out any problem areas it has or has had. Some of the fans (I call you that because of your continued great interest in everything BYU, even though you are no doubt Utah fans) maybe ought to worry more about your team rather than worrying about BYU. It is nice, however, that you are interested in BYU. I am looking forward to the time that the two will play each other again. It should be interesting, to say the least. I love BYU football and say with all my heart, GO BYU!

    So glad Zach chose to return to BYU; I'm confident he's going to be a great director of football operations for the Cougars.
