Another year, another article about the TE position at BYU, and once again, they
will fail to use them in an efficient manner.
I dream of the Pitta, George, Harline and Coats days. (I recognize there were
glory days before them also.) Hoping Mahina can either have to soft touch like
the first three, pulling in the passes; or at least the blocking skills of a
Coats to open up some holes for Williams, Hill and company.
Thanks to that offensive mastermind Robert Anae, the tight end position has
disappeared from the Cougar playbook!
The band of brothers just need to spend time with him, teach him how to go fast,
go hard and to always remember that will is always greater than skill. He'll get it.
Mahina and Anae will prove the naysayers wrong.It's funny how
those with short memories forget that Pitta(2004, 2007-09), George(2005-09),
Harline(2004-06) and Coats(2002-06) all excelled at tight end while Robert Anae
was coaching at BYU (2005-10).It was the season AFTER Pitta and
George graduated that BYU began struggling at tight end.It's
amazing how much smarter coaches look when they have talent to coach.
