Harmon with ridiculous predictions. BYU will win by 30 (not 10) and Utah will
beat UCLA by 19. Cal will beat Oregon State by at least 20 points and ASU will
run over Washington State by 20.
I like Doman and wish him well. Definitely needs a learning curve as this year
shows. I remember how long he sat on the bench before he got a chance at QB in
Provo because of injuries to 2-3 players in front of him. The man has
perspective and grit.
When coach Doman took over the job there were promises of an innovative and
progressive, new exciting offense game plans. So far Ive only seen
Anae weak sauce part 2. Im not a coach and I dont spend all of my
waking work hours implementing BYUs offence. But I do know what I see on
Saturdays is not at all impressive. Step it up coach Doman.
Confused on the timing of Doman's anecdote. He says "the next year".
Doman's wins over Utah came in 2000 and 2001. In 2002, McBrides Utes beat BYU
and Mac was carried off the field in his last game as a Ute.
I actually like Doman. His offense, I think has underperformed this year, but I
think his play calling has dramatically improved from the beginning of the year.
He also made the right, though difficult decision to bench Heaps in favor of
Nelson. I hope Doman has a long career at BYU. I have a lot of confidence that
Doman will continue to improve with time and experience. I'm afraid I can't say
the same about Bronco.
Coach Doman will do fine either as quarterback coach and as offensive
coordinator. I would suggest he decide which position he wants to coach as one
is more a position specialist and the other is coordinating different schemes
associated with offensive play calling.Coach Doman might have been
promoted to quickly from Quarter back coach to being an offensive coordinator,
but within 3 years as Coordinator, he will have that position mastered beyond
apprentice level. Coach Doman played as non-drop back passing quarterback in
high school and at the Y. The pure drop back quarterback is antiquated usage of
a quarterback and today's defensive schemes from blitzing snd stunting can
easily tie up the offensive line and bump and run by the secondary locks up the
wide receivers and tight end. Today's quarterback needs to be to pass from a
moving pocket, pass on the run, and able to run independently.
B.Y.U. should beat Idaho by at least 3 touchdowns. UCLA will be a challenge for
Utah since their offense is John White IV. If Utah doesn't turn the ball over
like they did when ASU and Washington came to SLC they will squeak bye due to
their defense creating plays. As for Doman he will be fine. This is his first
year as an OC and it takes time to become a good OC. I am sure that it took Norm
Chow time so I expect Doman to learn what worked and what didn't this year and
he will be much improved next year.
Nice article.Good luck Coach Doman. Thanks Coach Mac!
I hope Doman will be successful, but I think most would agree that this year has
been a disaster for BYU football. The play calling, something that I thought
would improve under Doman, is still a problem. I have little faith that he
will ever be able to do the job.
