I'm still trying to grasp how these coaches stated that Hill was a better
Qb then TM. Now they are hailing TM but Hill could not complete a pass beyond 15
yards. The coaching staff should have never sat TM last year. The team would be
in a better situation if TM had played last year instead of sitting.
@blue & white"Next year come to Eagle Idaho for fan
fest!"Right in Boise State's backyard.... Now THAT would
turn up the temperature of the rivalry!
Next year come to Eagle Idaho for fan fest!
Good for the team and good for the fans. I didn't know that St. George was
that far away. 700 miles round trip? My speedometer must be off for sure.
I've made that trip numerous times and it's only 260 miles from Provo
to St. George. I'd like to see the football Cougars' offense get
that round trip mileage in yards every game next season.Go Cougars!
Beautiful Day to watch the Cougars practice for a while. Not much to see as far
as Offense and Defense go. Looks like Mr. Mangum has a lively arm and is
hitting his receivers. The running back situation looks good with allot of big
backs and a couple of smaller type scat backs. The receiving corps looks like
they are going to be ok. Many fine catches during the day. The Defense looks
quick and focused as well as good sized.Thanks to Coach Sitake for
bringing the squad to So. Utah. We had a great time.On thing is for
sure...you Never would have seen Bronco Mendenhall do anything like this. He
was the most unfriendly coach when it came to the fans or the alumni players.
Coach Sitake is just the opposite.
Thanks, Gordon. A more constructive comment could have been, "I wonder if
they worked on any two point conversion plays?"I liked going for
two, my brother - a long time coach at the high school level - hated it. We
both agreed, though, that once the decision was made, we didn't seem to
have a definite idea of what we were going to do.Maybe we'll
never go for two again, but if we do, I hope we have two or three specific
plays, well practiced, and not used except for just that situation.
@ Farmer "This coming football season is well underway. It is happening in
the minds and hearts of the players and coaches right now. Will everyone put in
the work to allow this team to reach its full potential? Will Tanner
throw for more than 5000 yards?Will we have a 1000 yard rusher or two?Will the defense rank among the best in football?Will this team field
several future NFL players?Will our coaches pleasantly astonish us with
game preparation and in game adjustments?If we think it, we can

exactly what kind of crops do you grow?
JustGordonJust like Utah will be working on dropping the ball just
before the goal line, so their opponents can return it for a touchdown.
@FarmerWhoa, whoa, whoa... Pull it back a few notches, Farmer.
It's just spring football. Instead of hyping up the team way beyond
rational expectations, let's just remain optimistically hopeful.If nothing else, Sitake has injected a new enthusiasm into the fan base. This
has resulted in millions more in donations through the Cougar Club. I'll
bet this whole trip was a blast for the players.
There was no mention made of Special Teams working on their fake punt plays from
their own end zone...surely this option will be available to use often in the

I know this is "just spring ball," but I love all the stories about
their progress. I loved Taysom Hill, but I am really excited to see a real
passing QB back on the team at BYU. I know they plan on running the ball, but
to have a threat via the pass for quick strikes is exciting. Under Bronco, the
offense was all about ball control, now it will be about scoring at any
opportunity. I love wide open football.
Thanks for coming down here. It was so fun. Hope you come every year
After a miserable basketball season...football can't start soon enough.
So glad we have this coaching staff. BYU is lucky to get them. Looking forward
to a great season.
