Re: QB Leash

My guess is the Hoge is gone. His dad was very vocal about concussions, and he may have decided it just isn't worth it. Time will tell. I also guess that Detmer Jr. will never play another snap...barring injury to Mangum and Critchlow. I agree that you don't throw Critchlow to the wolves in Missippi...

Re: Article: Money is Killing BYU Football

Lavell was 7-4 then 5-6. Everyone seems to think is was the other way around. Kalani and Ty are trying to create a program not just win now and pay in the long run (see GC 2001-2004). We need to support our coaches and give them the time and opportunity to build up the program. In another Lavell wa...

Re: Pro Style Offense Questions

Despite that horrible scene on the field this year, I continue to believe that BYU's best potential to be a *real* contender is to play pro style, ball control offense. We can recruit offensive linemen and solid running backs and tight ends, solid pocket quarterbacks, and good-enough receivers. We ...

Re: Bronco Mendenhall's Virgina Cavaliers

BYU has not had a statistically worse first 4 game performance since the 1950s despite having faced a similar or tougher 4 game strength of schedule several times. There is no doubt or argument that this is the worst offense in the modern era of college football at BYU. The question is whether or n...

Re: BYU announces caffeinated beverages will be served on campus and at games

Put me in the category that thinks BYU should revise the honor code to remove the facial hair restrictions, and length of hair restrictions. Those are not based on eternal principles, like the rest of the honor code is...honesty, chastity, etc. I would retain the modest dress standard, because that ...

Re: BYU's offense compared to Wisconsin's Offense

Also, the cool part of this game is that will be what BYU's offense looks like in 2 - 3 years, if Detmer isn't chased out of town by the pitchfork armchair OC's before then. That's what I took from the game. As we were getting our butts kicked, I watched Wisconsin's offense to get a glimpse of what...

Re: 1-3 : A Guide to Not Hating Life

Hey, my son is a huge Bama fan, so y'all back off. I agree, though. Patience is needed. I saw some encouraging things from Hodge. If he hadn't made that boneheaded safety play at the end, and not thrown two picks, I think we would have the makings of a QB controversy. The difference is that Hodge is...

Re: Mangum Out 4-6 Weeks

I read somewhere that Kalani's policy is to only talk about injuries if they are season-ending. Mangum's out, but no one will say for how long since it is not season ending.

Re: Mangum Out 4-6 Weeks

Well, for what it is worth, Beau Hodge sells a great play action pass...not sure how much good it will do, though, since we can't really run the ball right now.
