Riverton Cougar,Thanks for your response. I hope you're
correct. One thing I give Wittingham is he is really good at saying a lot of
nothing. He compares his team to itself and speaks in generalities. This gives
little or nothing out to anyone. I wouldn't mind seeing a little Q&A
going like this:Ty Detmer: We've improved since last year and
since the beginning of camp.Reporter: Who is getting the most touches?Ty Detmer: The center gets to touch the ball every play and the refs touch it
in between plays so it's probably a toss up. I know, snarky,
@Dan SmithMaybe it's reverse psychology: maybe Tanner loves to
target the WRs but is only saying that so that LSU puts all their attention on
shutting down the tight ends. :)But yeah, I see what you're
saying. But you shouldn't put too much stock into what the coaches/players
say, since they're generally saying things to appease the fans and give
Am I the only one who wishes that these kind of comments would not be made? Why
give the opposition easy information? Tanner: "Hey, I look to
the tight ends first!" Opposing Coach: "LOL! Thanks for the heads
up!"LSU would have the Portland State tape to watch anyway, but
come on, make them work for it.
In order for the offense to get back to the glory days, the backs need to be
more involved. I like the TE 's getting some love but throwing to the backs
is a big thing for me to see. Before Mendenhall the offense always seemed to
come thru but now it's a big question mark and although there seems to be
talent, producing is something they need to prove. Tight Ends over the middle
and backs in the flats on a regular basis is what I want to see. Detmer has to
show me a lot more this year, last year his offense was a major disappointment.
One thing I saw in regards to Hill in his pro debut was receivers that
went and got the ball , something he didn't get from his receivers last
year. I hope Mangum has better help this year.
In 2009 BYU had a QB who loved to target the tight ends, 2 in particular: Dennis
Pitta and Andrew George. They also had a great offense.I hope this
year will see similar offensive results, without the occasional meltdown games,
of those years. Only time will tell, but I do see more reason to be optimistic
this year than I usually do.
It's great to see BYU's offense and defense alternating dominating the
each other.I would be very worried if one unit was consistently
dominating the other this early in training camp.BYU getting good
production from their tight ends is a very good sign that Detmer's offense
is starting to click.BYU's offense has always been at its best
when their tight ends were producing.
Come ON WR's!!!
Who threw the inceptions referenced in the other article? And who made the
interceptions? Just curious. I know it is rah rah rah time of the year
especially for the offense. Only positive comments from the press.
