I am going to hold out my opinion of BYU's offensive line until they play
somebody good. perhaps this week against Utah State will prove a little more of
a challenge than Hawaii.
"A few changes to the offensive line proved to be key in Friday's 47-0
win over Hawaii."Really? Hawaii was key in that win, not any
changes BYU did! I'm tired of reading articles that tell us how much better
BYU is playing after this one win!I am a BYU fan, but not much of a
fan of idiotic articles (nothing against Braden who is featured in this
article). Let us see how the Cougars do in October and then there might be
something to write about what has become "key" on the team.
The offensive line played much better against Hawaii. This week will be a much
bigger challenge. If the Cougars can establish the running game against the
Aggies, their passing game will open up and BYU has a very good chance of
beating Utah State.Go Cougs!
Is that a young Mark Eaton in the picture?
Won't matter if Riley is back behind that line.
What "proved to be key" in the game against Hawaii was a depleted
defensive line and defense in general. They were already starting 3rd
stringers, then two of them got hurt. Don't get me wrong, BYU would have
beaten any team Hawaii put on the field, but that game proved nothing. Hawaii
might be the worst D1 team in the nation this year.
Best O lineman on the field was Anae. How ironic that he's the kid of the
offensive coordinator that Mendenhall fired and scapegoated for Heaps'
Why do they take these kinds of pictures? Looks like a glamour shot.
Aggie Question: On the surface playing 2 at BYU for 1 at USU seems quite
unequal. It's a legit rivalry. But... perhaps because some years only
10,000 to 20,000 came to games at Romney Stadium, BYU may have a point. How
about this: whatever payout BYU pays USU for coming to BYU, USU pays to BYU when
they go there. Then there could be a 1 for 1 alternating schedule. Fair? Maybe,
but it would cost USU big time -- like most of the gate.
@RockOnExcept for the fact that U State is now almost entirely
selling out Romney Stadium this season. Moving into the future, I
antcipate U State will be able to pay the Y coming to Logan on a similar level
without costing them most the gate like you said. Winning teams bring big
crowds, regardless of location of venue.
@fenderYour typical incorrect assertions. If you'll remember
correctly Anae left on his own, although in my opinion he was strongly
encouraged to do so, but not only that Heaps had just come off a bowl win and
was being heralded as an emerging star. There was no "Heaps failure" to
use to "scapegoat" Anae with.Now I thought then, and still
think, it was a mistake to force Anae out, but your version of events is
