I found this article an insightful discussion of the Y's recruiting
The Cougar offense was actually starting to click, and we were seeing a lot more
pass down field. Then what happened?Matthews got hurt.Defenses could then key on the short game and not worry about passes down
field any more.I'm not saying Matthews' injury was the
only reason for the Cougar offense falling off at the end of the year, but it
certainly was a key factor.
I am looking forward to the return of the tight-end to the Cougars offense. Its
going to be a fantastic year with so many things to look forward to. Fall
can't get here soon enough.
I look forward to this year, but as I have done the last few years, I keep my
expectations very low to about 6 wins. That way I can be happy with 8 or more
wins. I also hope that Taysom Hill can learn to find and hit receivers,
something we have missed greatly the last few seasons. The most significant
reason I can find that BYU is woeful in the Red Zone is that because they have
such a predictable offense of QB runs, they have nothing to offer in the Red
Zone that is challenging. In a wide open field, the occasional QB draw can be a
tremendous weapon or threat, but once all players are confined to a smaller
space, the QB run is just easy pickings for a defense. So, Mr. Anae, learn from
your poor offensive game plan and get a much improved versatile offensive plan
together and work on it in every game. Please.
I would love to see an offensive game plan that include throwing the ball to
some of these receivers. I'm so tired of the QB draw. I won't watch
any games live, but will watch them if the stats show that Robert Anae has a new
approach that involves more than the QB draw with 2 variations, left and right.
Taysom Hill can talk all he wants about how these receivers might contribute,
but if he continues to be a Jake Heaps, Riley Nelson, or himself last year,
these guys won't do much. Go Cougars. It's time to begin a new plan,
