Ouch! How we would miss seeing Cody Hoffman make spectacular catches and plays
for another year for our Cougs. I hope he stays and gets his degree. We need him
next year. Look what happened to Austin Collie when he left early. Multiple
injuries, no playing time, no degree, and soon to be no team. Whatever he
decides, Cody has contributed big time to BYU football. Thank you, Cody!
@BYUalum,The argument about "no degree" is ridiculous.
Because guess what? Any player that leaves early can..(GASP) come back and get
their degree. If I had a chance mid-college to leave and get a few
million dollars, knowing that at most I'd be delaying when I got my degree,
I'd have said "Where do I sign"Now I do think its funny
that byu fans are trying to get themsleves pumped about something, since you
have a terrible team, terrible coach, middle of the WAC program, with nothing
better to realistically shoot for, that you have to talk about one of your best
players' NFL "potential"You think USC fans write
articels about Marquise Lee's "NFL potential"?
Appreciated Ben's straightforward, honest, no-coach speak answer. But,
that's who he is too. Great. I agree 100% with BYU Alum that I'd hate
to see Cody go NFL from a purely selfish fan perspective. He's been fun to
watch. Stay, Cody, Stay. But, Ben is right in the elements to weigh. A degree is
the easiest concern -- make a million bucks and take online and winter semesters
to finish the degree (but by all means finish it -- no one lasts long on the
gridiron and reality soon bites.)Cody has some good advisers so I
wish him well.
Chris BObsessed much?It must be really depressing to be
sitting on your parent's couch in the basement watching the college
football world prepare for bowl week and knowing that U weren't invited to
the party.You think USC fans even think about U except for the week
they play U?

Next Article » How USC's Marqise Lee beat the odds From the Orange
County Register, It doesn't quite talk about the NFL, but there are
plenty of articles out there saying how good he is.
A feature article on Hoffman and his potential in a Utah newspaper seems
reasonable to me. See the September 4, 2012 edition of the LA Times for a
wonderful feature article on USC's M. Lee and his NFL potential by Gary
Klein. Google is such a useful tool for discovering information on the fly.
Concerning Hoffman's pro football potentional, for some reason I tend to
put more trust in the opinion of the CFL's all-time receptions leader than
in the jealous rants of our little friend from the hill.We'd
love to have you for another year Cody, but good luck at the next level whenever
you decide the timing is right for you to make that move.
I feel like he could drastically improve his draft stock if he would stay
@BYUalum You can't say that because Collie he left early he got multiple
injuries and no playing time. Those two things are not correlated whatsoever.
Also, Collie had two very productive seasons and is now dealing with injury. I'm a huge Cody Hoffman fan and think it would be tough to see him go,
but it is the right move. Say he is graded rounds 3-5. Even if he comes back he
woouldn't be a top 3 round guy. We have a tough schedule next year and are
bringing in a new qb so it would be nice to have a verteran reciever like
Hoffman, but he needs to do what is best for himself. @byufan 1993 How
could he drastically improve his stock?
@Provo4LifeIf Taysom Hill can throw a better ball than Riley, then
yes, Hoffman may get quite a few more looks from NFL scouts. Especially since
many of the games in 2013 will be high profile opponents played on national
Stick around Cody, you won't be disappointed. Having a true QB (no offense
Riley, but you are an athlete with a decent arm) will only pad your resume
(so-to-speak). Aside from that you'll have an education to go along with
your accomplishments at the Y. Lastly, you'll have more visability with
the schedule that Tom has put together for the Y. Stick around, your stock will
only improve.Good Luck either way.Go UTES!!
Guys like this show how recruiting rankings are never accurate. Apo was supposed
to be the great player while Hoffman had no other offers.Apo is average at
best and Hoffman is great.
chris b - there's a great article in the LA Daily News arguing pros and
cons of USC WR Robert Woods leaving before his senior season. U should read it.
It's almost identical to Hoffman's article. U always
talk about your PAC12 conference affiliation, but I've never seen you post
a comment in the LA Daily News about USC or UCLA, nor have I seen U comment in
the Rocky Mountain News about your new rival Colorado.If the Utes
have truly moved on, maybe U should to?I'm hoping Hoffman comes
back but wouldn't blame him if he left. If he thinks he'll get picked
in the first few rounds, I would go for it if I were in his shoes.
BYU is getting more All American picks because they are being seen by tons more
people on BYUtv and ESPN. WAY COOL. Go Gougars!
