Re: Anderson had his headset off during our final drive

I appreciate the ASU fans that have spent time to drop by. It is great to gain some perspective and history. Perhaps Anderson isn't the guy we thought and isn't the right guy for the job at either place. I was really happy that we landed Blake but I may have partially felt that way because we had ju...

Re: Briggs (Stats)

There's no question Briggs is electric and he runs with a different mindset than Tyler. When he gets the ball and hits the hole he is going full speed. He gets up field in a hurry and causes defenders to take bad angles. Even though he is small, he doesn't go down easy and can even carry defenders f...

Nah, we'll just keep adding more calamity to it with each week's loss. :pirate:

Re: We need Legas

Everyone is so hung up on Legas, but it seems like Levi Williams is QB2, and would become the starter if Bonner's out, right? Levi is #3 on the depth chart. Technically they're both #2 as it's listed Cooper Legas OR Levi Williams, though Cooper is listed first. Based on Spring Coop is a much more a...

Re: Bachmeier transferring from Boise

Well, there goes our chances at BSU. By the time we meet they'll have made all the right adjustments, got the guy at QB that should have been the starter all along and have a creative play caller behind him. We can't catch a break with those guys. When we play them early in the season - it is season...

Re: “Bonners on a short leash this week”

I am on team “Legas should get the chance to start on Thursday and a non-BYU game.” In my heart of hearts, I don’t think Legas is it either, but people I trust say he earned the number 2 spot. I think the path forward is Levi Williams running a different offensive scheme next season. :noidea: He mi...

Re: Need Massive Improvement, but....

The most disappointing thing aside from Bonner’s 6 TO’s was the complete lack of discipline in every phase of the game. ASU fans warned us.

Re: We need Legas

I have to believe that if this game was on the road that we would have seen Legas.

Re: Wide Receivers

Bonner is playing with little to no confidence.

When he does run he trips over his own feet after 2-3 yard...

The part of this whole thing that doesn't add up for me is seeing what we did in Game 1 compared to what we decided to do in weeks 2 and 3. Against UConn we saw Levi come in for series, or at least a few plays during a drive as a change of pace. We saw a true freshman in Briggs come in early and con...

Re: Just how bad is the play calling?

Something coach has pointed out is that when the defense puts less players in the box (near the line of scrimmage), we should be able to run. I think, especially vs Weber, we had very favorable matchups in the box, but still couldn't run forward significantly. This may be pushing the numbers up. We...

Awesome job. The one thing that I think doesn't get represented in the rushing stats is really how explosive Briggs has been. The chart only shows rushing plays by the RBs but much of the damage done by Briggs has been on that short little delayed underhand pass (essentially a delayed hand off) but ...
