Re: Gunner Romney confirms he will sign with BYU

Best news coming out of the program in a while. Certainly since the Grimes hire.

Re: Sitake has no clue what he is doing.

If the Elder Oaks interview is accurate, that carries a lot of wait. Holmoe's not going to waste an apostle's time. So unless Elder Oaks (or someone else on the BOT) wanted Coach Ken to be interviewed (and that may be; they all would have known him given his high profile with Meet the Mormons), I th...

Re: 2019 Football schedule now set

I'm not sure I like that we play the Utes back to back--last game of 2018 and first game of 2019. It's all anyone will talk about in the off-season. Win or lose, that will get a bit stale.

Re: Preston Hadley hired as Safeties Coach

My guess is that Tuiaki didn't like having an old guard in the room who wasn't afraid to disagree with him. And Kaufusi probably got tired of being under a coordinator who didn't really know what he was doing and moved him out of the spot he knew best and would have a chance to work with his son. I ...

Re: Additional FB Coach?

Unless it was prohibited or discouraged by the NCAA I don't get why BYU would delay announcing their new hire once they know who it will be. It's not like they had to wait until yesterday to sign papers that give a starting date of Jan 9. The fact that BYU still hasn't announced anything says that t...

Re: Additional FB Coach?

I love Louis Wong--he was in the bishopric of one of my student wards close to 20 years ago now. Good man. But Wong is foremost an o-line coach, and there are already two of them on the new staff.

Re: UCF as National Champs

I think the argument that applied to BYU way back when still applies here: Everybody lost to somebody that lost to UCF. But nobody beat anybody that beat UCF. And as has been pointed out, UCF beat the one team that beat the two teams playing in the "national" tournament championship game from which ...

Re: Offensive Coaching staff

So BYU got rid of Detmer (assuming he would have been qb coach) for a-rod? I'd have given Detmer a year with the qbs. If be did awesome keep him. If he was terrible call a-rod. I'm with you on this. In no way is ARod a superior QB coach to Detmer. Ty had his faults as a coordinator, but those were ...

Re: Welcome to new coach Fesi Sitake

Exactly. And I'm really surprised that Grimes would agree to come into such a risky situation without demanding full hiring control.

Re: I don't get the Grimes hire.

becoming the highest paid O-line coach in the country. Is this true? The truth is, BYU needs Grimes more than Grimes needs BYU. His hire is a blessing for a beleaguered BYU football program. This is definitely true. And I gotta say, Ddawg, I was really hoping we'd see your Avatar go away after BYU ...
