Dr. Hill and Coach Whittingham: Please do whatever is in your power to bring
Norm Chow to "the hill". Many of us would LOVE to see him on the utah
sideline or in the booth directing the ute offense.Signed, Cougar Nation
Though passive aggresive, I agree with you Hawk.Nothing would kill
the tds ego more than Chow being successful at the U.Doh!man or
So is chow the utah "fans" holy grail? I suppose when you only scored
abot 30 points total over the last half of your season even a washed up has been
looks like an upgrade to whatever you have calling your plays now. I for one
hope this happens. Comedy will be sure to ensue. LOL
hedgehogChow is a blast from the BYU past. Like
Whittingham Sr. before him, BYU fans have long since moved on couldn't care less
if Chows finishes his last couple of years coaching at the U.
I think BYU fans comments above are pathetic! Chow was a great part of BYU
history, and was basically pushed out. Show some respect and grow up.
The commenters above who want coach Chow to come and fail or who think it would
be a blow to BYU's ego if he was successful should try and get some class. It
would be a big stretch for some of you but at least make an effort please.As a football fan, BYU first but also one who enjoys watching Utah, I would
love to see Chow come to Utah and be successful in the PAC. I thought he did a
great job at BYU and hope he does well wherever he ends up. Having said
that I do believe that although Chow was an innovator and a major component in
putting BYU on the map and making them nationally relevant, I believe at this
time the rest of the nation has caught up with him and he is just another
peddler of a common product. If he has a good players, especially a QB, he could
be very successful at Utah. He certainly has an advantage here with a head coach
like Kyle Whittingham.
Add MY name to the list of Cougars who want to see Norman's triumphant return to
his Alma Mater.The LAST time he was OC against BYU and Bronco's
defense, the score was BYU 59 - UCLA 0. I would LOVE to see something along
those lines on Saturday, Sept. 17th, 2011 at LES.But, I'm sure
hedgie or Chris B or another of their kind will come along behind me to point
out that Chow will have better athletes to work with at the Yew than he had at
UCLA. First off, LOL at that thought. Second of all, okay, just for grins, I'll
play along for a sec and say this might be true.Okay, adjusted score
for 9-17-2011:BYU 59Yewtah 6Welcome on back to
the old stomping grounds, Norm.
Chow's an elite college OC, arguably the best in the country. Nobody has a
better resume. It would be a huge boost to Utah's program to get him to come.
Neuheisel has a legendary inability to get along with other coaches and Chow
wants to leave, but he's been negotiating with USC for weeks and hasn't been
able to come to terms, so it's hard to believe he would voluntarily leave UCLA
and accept Utah money.If Neuheisel forces him out, however it has to
pay him his salary minus what he would get at Utah and that might make Utah a
possibility.Since Meyer left Utah it has gone back to running
basically what BYU runs and that's close to what Chow likes. He would probably
put the QB under center most of the time and use more two back sets. Chow would
love to have BYU's two QBs (Heaps and Lark), but could probably do something
with the Robles kid at the U.
Wynn is done at Utah. Time to go to junior college somewhere
