What do you think the fan reaction would be?

What if BYU fired Sitake in the off season and replaced him with Robert Anae? To be honest, I wouldn't be disappointed in that choice. He is a hard nosed coach that has created successful offenses wherever he's been the Ocoordinator.

I think it would straighten out a lot of BYU's issues very quickly.

Our "pillows and feathers" offense would become physical again in a hurry.

I really think BYU's best option for a quick turnaround is Ed Lamb. Chad Lewis just needs to hurry up and baptize him.

My belief is Anae is Chow2.0; which is to say a less effective OC, and just as bad of a HC candidate, but that's going off of my impressions of folks who played for him awhile ago

I agree with this. My question was a "what if" because Anae was not well liked by the fan base. He is not good at dealing with the media which would be tough. Plus I think he got pissed when his name wasn't even considered when Bronco left.

I completely agree with this. Either get him baptized or get off your BYU high horse and suspend this stupid tradition that a BYU HC has to have a temple recommend.

Anae is the opposite of Sitake; Good at Xs and Os, but disliked by recruits and the media. Probably wouldn't work.

What if he kept most of the position coaches who did the recruiting?
