Hoffman is going to be a fan favorite for the next three years. Good height,
strength and excellent route running. Looking forward to singing the Cougar
fight song many more times because of his good hands.
Glad Jake and Cody did extra reps. It paid off!9/3/2011 won't come
soon enough! BYU will take off where it ended!
Hoffman did a fine job of looking like he came up with the ball....but in all
fairness he was bobbling the ball all the way to the ground and was down before
he secured it. We won the game against a scrappy bunch of players who played
with heart and had something to prove... despite the wrong call so let's not get
carried away here. He's going to be a good player...and hopefully a great
player...there's no doubt the potential is there. But BYU's problems are not
the players. There are serious problems with the coaching staff...that unless
addressed, will keep this talented team from ever reaching greatness... which it
has the potential of doing. We already win many games like this one. But it's
the higher echelon ones that we have to win...and right now we don't have the
coaching staff to do it. BYU's weakest links have always been the Defensive
Corners and Safeties. Our ability to outscore on offense has always been our
forte...but we were able to do that because of the likes of coaches like
Edwards, Chow, and Scofield...not Anae.
Holy Cow Cody Hoffman is the Man. Finally the tightend spot is showing glimpses
of Huge talent here with this guy. Man Look out 2011 season the Blue Cougar Crew
is back.Here we go with a red-shirt freshman tightend with all the
other wide outs, combined with all the "O" lineman returning but one,
a stable of multi-talented running backs from smasher's like Kariya, Hague &
Mendenhall and the slashers Di Luigi & Quesada as well as Foote, Combined
with a QB spot that is talented lookout ESPN you are getting a true Blue
Juggernaut in 2011 !
Re: Bowling GreenYour evaluation is clear and hauntingly accurate.
The potential to be a High Profile program as an independent can either launch
BYU into the ranks of historical collegiate stratosphere or to udder
irrelevant's, is all in the hands of the coach's. The talent will
come, and it will go, and to keep the skilled player's coming Anae is the first
change to be made."POLY" Cougar Nation
I totally agree. The talent and potential is there, but to be great, you must
have great coaching. The OC position definitely needs a change for the
better.Other schools are recruiting Doman and he will leave if we
can't give him something to stay for . . . . like the OC position. I just don't
think Bronco has the courage to do what needs to be done.I heard
that Anae was a Holmoe hire, without Bronco's explicit consent. Can anyone
Anae has his strengths. However, he has not been able to adjust when needed and
learn from his mistakes. BYU can get a better OC. I am not sure
Doman is better. BYU needs an experienced but innovative OC. One who
can use all of the skill positions and exploit the other teams weaknesses
instead of being so predictable that 1/2 of the fans could call the game. One who will shift from passing to running and who will shift from TEs
to WRs to RBs in the passing game as there are exploitable weaknesses. One who will game plan for the weaknesses of the other team instead of just
trot out the same playbook until it is obvious that it will not work. BYU has rarely had a real offensive game plan that adapted for each game.
Part of that is Bronco. It is not just Anae. BYU is not good enough
to dominate good teams when they know what is coming. Look at the last 2 TCU
games. There needs to be a philosophy change before BYU can become
great on offense. Part of that is Bronco's approach to offense.
