I am first comment again! GO Cougars! gonna be an awesome season!
Gettin' to be antacid time!I'm feeling as nervous as Doman.Glad I'm not in his shoes, but will enjoy watching him wearing them on
Saturday.What a kick-off for BYU's independence to start on the road
against two BCS teams.Then come home to pummel a hapless BCS
team.Could be THE YEAR!
Two more days to BYU football.Go Cougars!
Step 1 in undefeated season starts Saturday.
BYU fans Doman is the right man for the job. Do't bail on him if the first three
weeks go awry. This is a huge schedule to tackle with a new offensive scheme. It
could be a rocky start. The defense had the upper hand in fall practice and I
think that they will face tougher defenses in the first three games. They very
well could be 0 and 3. Then everyone will be bailing on Doman. It is going to
take time and I still think that exxpectations should be lower this year, but
higher next year. So many new coaches, that it will take time. I see a year
comparable to last year slow start fast finish.
we (about 6 BYU families)will be watching in Brasilia, Brazil. go Y. thank you
Go cougars - from Sao Paulo, Brazil
Strange how BYU having a new offensive coordinator and new offensive scheme is
somehow a plus, but for the Utes the same scenario is being pushed as a negative
by the Dnews and BYU fans. I would expect it from BYU fans, but the Dnews ought
to be a little more independent about it.Good luck, Cougars. See
you on the 17th!
@Mormon Ute,The reason it is a negative for the Utes, is because your
quarterback only practices half the time and also Wynn isn't that good.
Utehaterforlife,That has nothing to do with it. I'm talking about
just the offensive schemes and how well the team is adjusting to them. The
Dnews has published articles about this for both teams, but for BYU it's always
couched in a positive light about Doman's new schemes bringing energy to the
offense and being embraced by the players. While for Utah it's always couched
in the context of can players recruited to play the spread adjust to Chows West
Coast scheme? I just think it indicates a bias. Ever since
Bonneville Media merged the Dnews staff with KSL staff it seems to be more
prevelant. I expect it from KSL. They are after all the 'voice of the
Cougars'. But the Dnews is supposed to be unbiased. I guess not anymore.
When Doman suggests that the Cougars get down there and "hit a home
run," does anybody else worry that the team is preparing to play the wrong
Anyone else think Doman looks like he just barely old enough to drive?Ole miss athletes 30byu 17Heaps 3 picks
"Anyone else think Doman looks like he just barely old enough to
drive?"So Chris B, what are you going to say when your
"BCS caliber" team loses to a football team coached by a 16-year-old?
Mormon Ute,There's the factor that BYU's offense was on the upswing
to end last season while Utah's was going downhill. Also, Doman's
"new" offensive scheme isn't incredibly different from what they have
done these last few years (although there will be changes), while Utah's new
scheme is a turn in a different direction. That is why people are more
confident in BYU's new offense than in Utah's.However, you are
entitled to your own opinion, as am I. We will see which is more effective
within the next few months.
Riverton Cougar,Don't be so sure Doman's new scheme isn't that
different. Doman himself said he spent 9 months researching other successfull
coaches schemes to come up with what he wanted to do. He was still adding
plays going into fall camp. So in my mind the change in coordinator negates
whatever positive momentum you had from last season. Also, compare you last
several oponents you were beating to get that momentum with the opponents we
lost to. They were different caliber teams. So are these first few opponents
you face this year. I sincerely hope all goes well for Doman and BYU, but I
expect them to have to work out some kinks.
Mormon Ute, you are correct, the Deseret News is heavily biased toward BYU over
Utah. I would much rather read the Tribune coverage, but then I am tempted to
read the the comments, meaning I feel like I have to shower to get the
mean-spirited slime off. You cannot have a logical discussion over there on a
topic that to any degree involves the Church without getting flamed.I don't mind
discussing issues, including opinions I don't agree with, but I don't care for
the level of nastiness and negativity. Thus I accept the DN's slant.
Ute fans talk about the D news heavily favoring the Y but nobody ever says
anything when several news stations in Salt Lake heavily favor Utah the new
cougar offense sounds like it will be awesome Doman is a smart guy and he will
do a great job as OC I really like how Coach Whitt has already set up a fall guy
if the offense fails this year and that would be Chow the U is lucky to have him
and Wynn really isnt that great of a Qb he is alot like Brian Johnson he had a
couple of good years but nothing to great
So pumped for football. Watching from Thailand - - good riddance the MTN!
Doman has proven time and time again that he is an offensive genius. Watch for
Doman to get offers from BCS Conferences and the NFL after this season.Yes folks, Doman is just that good.
