It seems we have picked up a couple of really nice RB’s with the grad transfer. With the Utah game being what 17 days away, I sure hope we have a good offense. Defense, I think will be better than last year.
Who knows… I am tired of listening to Utah fans boast about the “streak”…
On a side note: I heard the AD at Utah say that he felt the BYU/Utah rivalry game was important and should be played every year unless circumstances makes it not possible. (meaning that if Utah has a chance to play a Alabama or Clemson type school, they would work with BYU to see if they could skip that year)
Floyd, I am pretty comfortable with the offense. Significant progress has been made there. QB status is great and RB Corp is good. The defense is my worry. Very difficult to replace Corbin and Takitaki! Our DC is the weak link in our coaching chain. If we can’t get a pass rush we will have a difficult time winning big games vs P5 teams. D is the key.
Overall I am happy with the programs direction and I think they will surprise on the upside a little this year. Maybe we win 8 games.
I am looking forward to this year with those two grad transfer players so far. Are we going to see multi plays with half running & half throwing game? Thawk: it will be hard that we no longer have Corbin K and Sione Takitaki (sp?) not in our program anymore. But I am sure our current D’s players will do fine.
We have read one article (DN) about this Utah AD where he was AD at USF for quite some time. He said Florida, FSU and Miami always play each other EFERY YEAR which is good. He believes both BYU & Utah should do the same, play EVERY YEAR! I don’t see that he will let it happen if they add Bama, Michigan, etc and drop BYU. But, it could happen if they can’t get it to work out their schedule.
I still don’t understand why BYU have to play Utah every year in early Sept. ND and USC play each other in November and same with ND/Stanford.
