BYU Football – Coordinators’ Corner – November 4, 2019


>>GET READY, GET READY.>>GOOD JOB, NICE PLAY, BOYS. ♪ ♪.>>Greg: BYU FOOTBALL FANS AND A HEARTY WELCOME BACK INSIDE STUDIO C AT BYU-TV STUDIOS IN PROVO UTAH. FOR ANOTHER EDITION OF “COORDINATOR’S CORNER,” PRESENTED BY J.C.W.S THE BURGER BOYS. COMING UP WE VISIT WITH BYU’S SPECIAL TEAMS AND DEFENSIVE COORDINATORS. ED LAMB AND ELISE. WE ROOK BACK AT A WIN FOR THE COUGARS AND AS AS ALWAYS, WE INVITE YOUR QUESTIONS. MAKE SURE TO USE THE #C.C. BYU, AND WE WILL SEE WHAT COMES UP LATER ON ON THE SHOW P WE WELCOME IN BYU SPECIAL TEAM’S COORDINATOR, AND ASSISTANT HEAD COACH, ED LAMB. HELLO, AGAIN.>>HI, GREG.>>GOOD MONDAY.>>Greg: IT IS. THEY TEND TO FOLLOW GOOD SATURDAYS.>>THAT’S CORRECT.>>Greg: SO TWO RANKED AFTER RANKS BOISE STATE, YOU HAD A REGIONAL RIVALRY GAME. THIS ONE THE INSTATE GAME, ANOTHER GREAT WIN. FOUR THE-14 THE FINAL. AND I WANT TO GO TO THE SOLID START THAT BYU HAD. DEFENSIVE THREE AND OUT TO OPEN THE GAME. AND A 93-YARD TOUCH DOWN ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THAT DEFENSIVE 3 AND OUT. FIRST TIME NOW THAT BYU SCORED AN OPENING DRIVE TOUCH DOWN AND NOW BACK TO BACK GAMES YOU ARE UP EARLY.>>IS IT WAS FANTASTIC. AN INCREDIBLE PLAY ON THIRD AND ONE, TO HELP FIN TAKE 3 AND OUT. AND THEN THE OFFENSE HAS BEEN PLAYING REALLY AGGRESSIVE ON EARLY DOWNS AND EARLY IN THE SERIES. AND REALLY GETTING STARTED SO THAT HAS CARRIED OVER, THROUGHOUT THE GAME, THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS.>>BYU FORCED A FUMBLE ON UTAH STATE SECOND POSSESSION. WE ARE STILL SEEING VIDEO WHEN THEY WERE DRIVING TO MAKE IT. THE SECOND POSSESSION, YOU FORCED A FUMBLE, AND IT COULD HAVE BEEN UP 14-0. THERE’S A UHM THIBLE INSIDE THE FIVE-YARD LINE. THE TIME IT FELT LIKE A CHANCE TO ESTABLISH CONTROL WAS BY THE WAYSIDE A LITTLE BIT. THE AGGIES ANSWER, AND THE GAME IS ON.>>YEAH, IT WAS GAME ON AT THAT POINT. WE MISSED AN OPPORTUNITY, WE CREATED AN OPPORTUNITY, AND THEN GAVE IT BACK. BUT CREDIT TO THE BOYS FOR CONTINUING TO FIGHT THROUGH THAT EVEN THOUGH UTAH STATE WENT OUT ON THE FIRST POSSESSION, THEY GET GOING. AND WHEN THEY GET GOING, THAT IS MAYBE THE FASTEST TEMPO TEAM IN THE COUNTRY.>>YEAH, IT IS CRITICAL TO START OFF WITH A STOP. YOU NEED SOMETHING EARLY SO THE DEFENSE CAN GET OVER, ADJUST TO THE SPEED. AND THEN I THINK THROUGHOUT THE REST OF THE GAME, IT BECOMES LIKE GAME ON. THAT FIST STOP WAS BIG, AND THE FIRST COUPLE OF TURNOVERS AS WELL.>>Greg: BYU GETS COOKING IN THE SECOND QUARTER, TWO HALL TOUCH DOWN RUNS AND TWO MORE TAKE AWAYS FOR THE DEFENSE. BOTH OF THEM WERE INTERCEPTIONS AND BOTH BY LINEBACKERS. COACH LAMB, YOUR GROUP HAS KNOW DOWNED FOR TEN OF THE 12 SEARCHES THIS SEASON.>>YOU HAVE TO CREDIT THE DEFENSIVE BACKS REALLY. WE HAVE PLAYED A LOT OF COVERAGE THIS YEAR. WE HAVE PLAYED AGAINST TEAMS THAT WILL AIR IT OUT REGARDLESS. THEY WILL THROW IT INTO COVERAGE AND TAKE A CHANCE. WE HAVE PLAYED TEAMS THAT HAVE DECIDED TO DO THAT WITH THE SECONDARY, KEPT THE BALL IN FRONT OF US. IT PUT STRAIN ON THE LINEBACKERS BUT ALMOST EVERY INTERCEPTION THE COMMON DENOMINATOR HAS BEEN THE LINEBACKERS. THEY HAVE GOTTEN BACK WHILE READING THE QUARTERBACK, AND BAZEICLY FOOLED THE QUARTERBACK. SO BOTH OF THEM THAT WERE STARTED RIGHT THERE, THAT’S WHAT WAS HAPPENING.>>Greg: ANOTHER COMMON DENOMINATOR MAY BE BALL SKILLS. NOT EVERYONE HAS GOOD ENOUGH HANDS AND YOU HAVE BEEN SOLID THAT WAY.>>IS THEY DO. AND ALL OF OUR LINEBACKERS WERE SAFETIES AND RUNNING BACKS IN HIGH SCHOOL, AND EVEN HERE AT BYU. AND I THINK THAT’S WHAT TRANSLATES. COLLEGE FOOTBALL, WE DON’T HAVE A LOT OF TIME WITH THE PLAYERS. I CAN’T TAKE CREDIT FOR DOING A BUNCH OF DRILLS AND SAYING THAT IS CARRYING OVER. THEY CAME IN WITH THAT SKILL. BY THE WAY, AS GOOD AS THEY HAVE BEEN, FANS ARE WONDERING IF THEY HAVE EARNED THEMSELF AS NICKNAME FOR THAT SKILL. I DO LIKE A FEW OPTIONS. THE TAKE AND BACKERS. BYU HAS BEEN TAKING IT BACK GOOD. LITTLE MORE CREATIVE, KILANI’S CLEPTOS. AND YOU HAVE GOTTEN GOOD PERFORMANCES UP AND DOWN.>>YES. IT’S BEEN THROUGHOUT THE LINEBACKER CORE. JACKSON KAUFUSI HAS GOTTEN INVOLVED. WE HAVE PAYTON, THEY ARE ALL CAPABLE OF GETTING THOSE INSTRUCTIONS.>>OUR VIEWERS SAW THE STATISTICS RELATIVE TO TAKE AWAYS. BYU RANKED THIRD NATIONALLY. FIFTH IN TAKE AWAYS PER GAME, TONE IN TURNOVER MARGIN, AND THE WINS FOLLOW THE TAKE AWAYS.>>YEAH, AND A LOT OF THAT IT IS JUST ABOUT THE TEAMS THAT YOU PLAY. SO OFTEN IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL, THERE JUST ISN’T A LARGE ENOUGH SAMP, AND I THINK OUR PLAYERS RECOGNIZE THAT TOO. IF WE PLAYED AGAINST RUNNING TEAMS THAT ARE BIG ON PROTECTING THE FOOTBALL, AND PLAY ACTIONS AND SHOTS THEN IT WOULD BE A DIFFERENT SCENARIO. DIFFERENT GUYS MAY BE GETTING THOSE INTERCEPTIONS AND WE MAY NOT HAVE AS MANY. WE HAVE PLAYED AGAINST TEAMS THAT WILL SNAP IT AS FAST AS THEY CAN, AND YOU HAVE TO MAKE THEM PAY.>>Greg: IS BACK TO SATURDAY’S GAME, AT THE HALF TIME LOCKER ROOM LEADING, BUT YOU ARE LOOKING AT ORE QUARTERBACK SHUFFLE. YOU LOST JARON HALL ON HIS FINAL TOUCH OF THE HALF, IT WAS A TOUCH DOWN RUN. ON WHICH TOOK A HIT TO THE HEAD, AND HE WAS DONE FOR THE NIGHT.>>S HE WAS. AND WHAT A COMPETITOR. THE WAY HE PLAYED TO SET THE TEMPO FOR THE TEAM. AND OF COURSE HE CAME BACK FROM HIS OWN INJURY, AND PLAYED PHYSICAL ALL THE WAY DOWN THROUGH UNTIL THE POINT THAT HE STEPPED OUT. AND THAT’S SOMETHING THE TEAM RALLIED AROUND, AND THEY CONTINUES TO DO THAT. I HAVE SUCH RESPECT FOR THE WAY THAT OUR QUARTERBACKS PLAY THE GAME. ALL THREE OF THIS EMHAVE PLAYED PHYSICALLY, THE WAY ZACK WENT OUT, THE WAY HE GOT INJURED, TRYING TO MAKE A TACKLE AND THE WAY JR. RON HAS FILLED IN. IS AND WHAT BAYLOR HAS DONE, IT’S BEEN INCREDIBLE.>>YOU CAN SEE IN THE HIGHLIGHTS THERE, HOW GOOD HE WAS ON SATURDAY. BEFORE HE WENT OUT WE SAW WHAT MAKES HIM A SPECIAL PLAYER. HE WAS DOING IT ON THE GROUND.>>HE WAS. HE HAD NICE PROTECTION, THE MY CALLS AND THE RHYTHM WAS FANTASTIC. GETTING THE BALL OUT ON TIME. WE WERE ATTACKING THE MAN TO MAN COVERAGE, WE WERE ATTACKING IT ON THE EDGES AND DOWN THE MIDDLE AS WELL. AND A RELATIVELY GOOD JOB BY THE OFFENSIVE GROUP. IS IT TOO EARLY IN THE WEEK TO GET A SENSE OF WITH THE STATUS MAY BE?>>WHEN IT COMES TO THE COLLISION TYPE THINGS THAT’S UP TO THE TRAINING STAFF, AND IF IT IS I HAVEN’T HEARD BUT IF HE IS IN THE CONCUSSION PROTOCOL LIKE HE WAS THEY HELD HIM OUT LAST TIME, THAT’S JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS IF HE TESTED CORRECTLY OVER THE NEXT TWO DAYS HE IS BACK IN, AND IT CAN BE LONGER E.>>Greg: WELL, WITHOUT HALL BYU TURNS TO BAYLOR ROMNEY. WE WILL TALK ABOUT WHAT HE DID TO HELP CARRY THE COUGARS TO VICTORY. AS WE CONTINUE OUR CONVERSATION. A REMINDER ABOUT THE BYU FOOTBALL WITH KILANI SITAKE, SPECIAL DAY AND TIME THIS WEEK. AND YOU CAN WATCH WEDNESDAY AT 1:00 P.M. EASTERN 10:00 A.M. PACIFIC. THIS IS THE “COORDINATOR’S CORNER.” BROUGHT TO YOU BY J.C.W.’S THE BURGER BOYS. WE ARE LIVE HERE IN STUDIO C, AFTER JORDAN LOVE IN THE POCKET. THROWS. PICKED OFF AGAIN. WILL GUARD ON THE FAR SIDELINE, AND ANOTHER POSSESSION ENDS. DEEP IN BYU TERRITORY. ANOTHER LINEBACKER I.N.T. WE ARE BACK ON THE “COORDINATOR’S CORNER.” WITH BYU SPECIAL TEAMS COORDINATOR. AND THE WAGON WHEEL. BYU NOW UP 4-4 ON THE SEASON AFTER BACK TO BACK WINS. THE WIN AT UTAH STATE SATURDAY, TO SECURE THAT TROPHY. WE LEFT OFF LAST BREAK, WITH THE BAYLOR ROMNEY COMING OUT OF THE BULLPEN IN THAT WIN. AND BAYLOR WAS AGAIN TREMENDOUS. TEN OF 15 PASSING, TWO TOUCH DOWNS AND A PICK. HE RAN FOUR TIMES FOR 19 YARDS. AND EVEN CAUGHT A PASS FOR 13. THE PASS EFFICIENCY RATING BETTER THAN .190. NO BAD FOR A NUMBER THREE WHEN THE SEASON BEGAN.>>THAT’S RIGHT. AND WE DON’T LOOK AT IT THAT WAY. WITHIN THE DEPTH CHART. THE PLAYERS ALWAYS KNOW THEY ARE A FEW PLAYS AWAY FROM BEING IN THE GAME. ONE PLAY AWAY, TWO PLAYS AWAY. THE PERFORMANCE, THEIR MEN ETAIL MAKE UP, THEY WERE READY AT ANY TIME TO GO INTO THE GAME. NUMBER TWO, YOU CAN PAY CLOSE ATTENTION. YOU CAN SEE THE PLAY AND THE PLAY CALLING STRATEGY EXECUTED AT A HIGH LEVEL BUT BEING FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO TAYLOR MAKE THE GAME PLAN. TO CALL EVEN EVEN KEELED WOULD BE A UNDERSTATEMENT WOULDN’T IT.>>THAT’S A GREAT WAY TO DESCRIBE IT. ALL TWO OF THEM.>>ALSO THEY ARE QUIET AND DIDN’T SLIGHT IN THE WAY THEY ARE GOING ABOUT IT. MAYBE DIFFERENT WAYS TO BE A LEADER AT THAT POSITION. SOME GUYS ARE IN THE DREW BREEZE MOLD IN YOUR FACE, THEY WANT THAT HUDLE AND WANT FOE GET IN THEIR GUY’S FACES AND THEN YOU GET BAYLOR.>>IT HAS TO BE AUTHENTIC. HEAD COACHES ARE THE SAME WAY. PLAYERS CAN SENSE, TEAMMATES CAN SENSE WHEN YOU HAVE A GUY OUT THERE THAT IS A COOL CUSTOMER, WHO IS TRYING TO GET IN EVERYBODY’S FACE. THAT JUST DOESN’T MATCH UP. AND THEN PLAYERS CAN ALSO ZONES WHEN A GUY IS FIERY AND TRYING TO ACT LIKE THIS COMPOSED FIGURE. AND BAYLOR IS WHO HE IS, AND THAT’S WHY IT WORKS SO WELL. WE ALL DO IT DIFFERENTLY.>>THE TIMING AND EXECUTION ON THAT.>>I THOUGHT ABOUT THAT IT WILL WILL GET ON VIDEO, YOU ARE A FEW YARDS BACK.>>WOE SAW MICAH SIMON SCORE HIS FIRST IN TWO SEASONS. WOE SAW THE DEFENSE WITH TWO MORE TAKE AWAYS. AFTER HALF TIME, AND WE SAW BYU SCORE. AND IT ALL ENDS UP TO A COMPREHENSIVE WIN, AND IT ENDS TOO. THE AGGIE TWO GAME WIN WITH PART OF THE BOLD UP OF THIS THING.>>TO SWITCH THE GAME PLAN, SWITCH THE PLAY CALLERS AROUND. ANYTHING THAT CAN BE TANGIBLE, A TANGIBLE RECORD OF SUCCESS. IT WOULDN’T MATTER WHERE WE WERE PLAYING FOR, THE WAGON IS ONE OF THE BEST AROUND. AND THE REASON THAT IT IS A WAGON WHEEL, ETC., THE SHARED HISTORY OF THE PEOPLE OF THIS STATE, AND ALL THAT BUT ANY TROPHY WOULD BE WORTH PLAYING FOR.>>IS JUST NOT SOMETHING YOU PICK UP IN THE CROOK OF AN ARM AND HAUL OUT.>>YEAH, WE HAVE SOME PRETTY STRONG GUYS THAT WE HAVE TO HAVE TWO AND THREE GUYS ON IT AT ALL TIMES. I NOTICE AFTER A WHILE THEY START TO ROLL IT.>>THEY GRABBED IT HOISTS IT AND THEN BROUGHT IN — ALL OF A SUDDEN THE ENTIRE TEAM IS GATHERED AROUND IT. AND YOU HAVE PHOTOGRAPHERS TAKING — IT WAS A COOL DEAL SATURDAY NIGHT.>>ABSOLUTELY. GREAT MOMENT FOR THEM TO CELEBRATE. AND THEN SUNDAY AND MONDAY WE ARE BACK TO WORK.>>WHAT WE DID NOT SEE WERE ANY FIELD GOAL ATTEMPTS FROM EITHER TEAM. SIX FOR SIX. SO I GUESS IT WAS A WASH THERE. HOW WOULD YOU ASSESS THE OVERALL SPECIAL TEAMS OUTING?>>I THOUGHT OVERALL IT WAS SOLID. IT WASN’T THE BEST GAME, THEIR PUNTER DID DO MORE OF ABEND OVER END STYLE. AND THAT’S SOMETHING THAT DANNY JONES GIVES US IN PRACTICE. AND LOOKING BACKOUT IT I WISH I WOULD HAVE GIVEN DANNY MORE PUNTS IN PRACTICE. BECAUSE IT WAS A SIMILAR STYLE THE WAY THAT THE BALL FLIES. BUT HE WILL GET BETTER AND BOUNCE BACK. OVERALL THE KEY TO THE GAME FROM A SPECIAL TEAMS STANDPOINT IS COVERAGE. ONE OF THE VERY BOAST IN THE COUNTRY. WE FACED THE THREE MOST DANGEROUS KICK OFF RETURNS WITH U.S.C. AND THEN BOISE STATE, AND THEN UTAH STATE.>>REALLY SHUT THEM ALL DOWN. ALL THREE GAMES HAD FANTASTIC KICKOFF COVERAGE. AND THEN ALSO JUST HAVING THE RIGHT GUYS TO RUN DOWN AND BE UNBLOCKBLE AND MAKE PLAYS.>>Greg: THE NATIONAL RANKINGS REQUEST GUYS OF MULTIPLE RETURN TOUCH DOWNS ON THEIR CAREERS FOR EXAMPLE.>>Greg: LET’S AND ET TO SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYERS OF THE WEEK FROM THE UTAH STATE GAME. AND WE ARE TALKING ABOUT MULTIPLE GAMES WHO DO DIFFERENT THINGS. YOU CAN TRIBE IN DETAIL, HOW YOU PARCEL THIS OUT.>>WHO ALWAYS RECOGNIZE WHAT WE CALL WINNER AND CHAMPIONS. WELCOME TO THE KICK OFF SQUAD.>>TACKLED DEEP IN THEIR OWN TERRITORY. TWO GUYS START ON DEFENSE AND OFFENSE OUT THERE GIVING IT EVERYTHING THEY HAVE.>>IT REMINDS ME OF THE 40 DOWN PLAY, KEEP AS GUY OUT OF THE END ZONE WITH THE HALF YARD LINE. BY THE END OF IT THERE ARE A NUMBER OF GUYS INVOLVED. BUT HE IS THE FIRST POINT OF CONTACT.>>HE IS. HE PLAYED A VERY PHYSICAL GAME. HE MADE A NICE LEGAL WELL TIMED HIT ON THE RECEIVER. CHAZ THE FINGERTIP ON IT, AND AUSTIN CAME IN AND CLEANED UP THE RECEIVER. AND THEN WHAT A GREAT JOB TO KEEP THE SHUT OUT IN THE SECOND HALF.>>THE SECOND HALF SHUT OUT AMIT A THICK TACKLE.>>THAT WOULD BE ABOCTOBERRIVE.>>I THINK IT IS. WHAT WE DO AT HALF TIME, OFFENSE, DEFENSE, IS AND ET THE COACHES TOGETHER FIRST. WE HAVE TO DO IT REALLY QUICKLY, TALK ABOUT ADJUSTMENTS AND YOU GET THAT TO THE PLAYERS AND THEY HAVE TO LEARN AND ADAPT. AND SO I THINK PLAYERS AND COACHES TAKE A LOT OF PLEAD AND YOU WANT TO WIN THE SECOND HALF.>>IS WE SAW THE SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYERS OF THE WEEK. OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK, ARE WE GOING TO CHECK THAT OUT RIGHT NOW. OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK FROM UTAH STATE GAME ON SATURDAY NIGHT. AS CHOSEN BY OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR. AND WE ARE LOOKING AT — WE CAN SEE HIS RECEIVING YARDS THERE, AND THE RUSH YARDS WITH IT AND WE HAVE 171 YARDS.>>HE HAS TREMENDOUS YARDS AFTER THE CATCH. A BIG HUGE 77-YARDER. THE THING THAT’S BEEN GREAT LATELY IS HOW VERSATILE HE IS. AND HOW MUCH HE IS IMPROVING. THE PHYSICALITY, HOW HE IS RUNNING THE FOOTBALL, THEY HAVE A GREAT BATTLE GOING FOR PLAYING TIME, THEY ARE SUPPORTIVE OF EACH OTHER. THIS’ A LOT OF COMPETITION FOR REPS AT THAT SPOT. AND THESE GUYS ARE RISING TO THE OCCASION. TREMENDOUS JOB OF PROTECTING THE FOOTBALL, FIGHTING FOR YARDAGE, GETTING DOWN THE FIELD. THE LONGEST ONE IN THE ERA DID WELL SATURDAY NIGHT.>>IS IT DID REALLY WELL. J.C.W.’S, QUALITY AND A LET OF IT. COMING UP SATURDAY IT IS, BECAUSE AND LIBERTY. A FIRST TIME MEETING AT LAVELL EDWARD STADIUM. BYU RADIO COVERAGE BEGINNING WITH PREGAME LIVE. THE KICK AT 7:30 EASTERN, 4:30 PACIFIC ON BYU RADIO. COMING UP NEXT, OUR FINAL SEGMENT WITH SPECIAL TEAMS COORDINATOR, ED LAMB, INCLUDING A PREVIEW OF SATURDAY’S OPPONENT. BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE TRACKED DOWN FROM BEHIND, STIFF ARM, DOWN HE GOES TO THE 15, TEN, HE IS INSIDE THE FIVE. LO PINNY KATOA.>>Greg: YOU ARE IN THE “COORDINATOR’S CORNER.” BYU NOW FOUR AND FOUR ON THE SEASON. AND NOW BACK HOME FOR BACK TO BACK GAMES AGAINST LIBERTY AND IDAHO STATE. FIRST UP THE FLAMES OF LIBERTY. A FELLOW INSPECT, AND THE COACH ED LAMB LIBERTY HAS PLAYED A MANAGEABLE SCHEDULE, BUT THE OFFENSIVE STATS ARE EYE POPPING.>>THEY ARE. WE HAVE BEEN WATCHING NORMALLY THE FIRST THING WITH ECO IS START OUT AS WE WATCH AN OPPONENT DEFENSIVELY. WE WATCH THEIR OFFENSE, KIND OF WHAT WE CALL THE BIG PLAY REEL, AND SEE WHAT THEY ARE CAPABLE OF. AND WHEN THEY GET OUT DOWN THE FIELD AND HAVE THEIR BIG PLAYS. AND THEIR BIG PLAY IS AS ABOUT AS IMPRESSIVE AS IT GETS.>>SCORING A LOT OF POINTS. AND NOT THE WORLD’S TOUGHEST, BUT DOING WHAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO DO WRACK UP WINS.>>THAT’S ONE THING A LOT OF PEOPLE TALK ABOUT EVERY WEEK. BUT REALLY, AS COACHES AND PLAYERS WE KNOW THAT EVERY TEAM HAS GOOD PLAYERS. AND SO WHEN YOU ARE ABLE TO PUTNAM PERS OUT THERE, AND ABLE TO MAKE IMPRESSIVE PLAYS HIGHLIGHTS, IT IS BECAUSE YOU ARE GOOD.>>Greg: UMASS IS A PORE RUSS POROUS DEFENSE. THEY HAD A BACK UP QUARTERBACK FUMLE AT THE GOAL LINE. RELATIVELY EARLY, HE WAS AT .44 PLUS IN THE FIRST HALF OF THAT GAME. HE WAS .441 ON THINK FOUR TOUCH DOWNS ON SATURDAY.>>INCREDIBLE PERFORMANCE. HE SEES THE GAME AS WELL AS ANY QUARTERBACK THAT WE HAVE FACED. IT WILL BE A REAL CHALLENGE TO SLOW HIM DOWN.>>Greg: BY THE WAY, BUCK SHOT IS NOT A NICKNAME, IT IS HIS GIVEN NAME. AND LIBERTY REFERS TO HIM AS BUCK SHOT. THAT’S ONE OF THE BETTER NAMES WITH HE FIND.>>I DON’T KNOW IF I WOULD WANT TO BE BUCK SHOT AS A QUARTERBACK. I THINK SHARPSHOOTER, RIFLE, SOMETHING LIKE THAT. BUT HE IS PRECISION ORIENTED. HIS STATS BY THE WAY ON THE YEAR, WON’T TOUCH DOWN TO THREE PICKS. HE IS AVERAGING AROUND 300 PASSING YARDS PER GAME. LOW 60’S PERCENTAGE WISE, A HIGH PASS EFFICIENCY RATING. WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT HILL.>>MULTIPLE THINGS. HE GOTS THE BALL OUT QUICKLY, SO THE YOU HAVE TO GET PRESSURE ON HIM. HE MAKES A LOT OF OPENS UP THE REST OF THE GAME. SO HE HAS RUN PLAYS AND IS JUST RIPPING IN THE R.P.O.S. SOME BACKS THAT CAN GET YARDS AFTER THE CATCH. AND WE FEEL LIKE OUR FOUR RECEIVERS PRESENT REAL MATCH UP PROBLEMS.>>ANTONIO GOLDEN ONE OF THOSE OPTIONS. ONE OF ONLY TWO WITH 1,000 PLUS YARDS. SO IT IS BYU AND LIBERTY. TIME FOR A COUPLE OF SOCIAL MEDIA QUESTIONS. AND HE ASKS WAS YOUR KICK OFF STRATEGY AGAINST U.S.U. SIMILAR TO THAT OF THE U.S.C. GAME, WHERE YOU WANTED TO KICK IT OFF WAS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR RETURNS BECAUSE YOU TRUST YOUR COVERAGE?>>I GET THIS QUESTION SOWFFING PEOPLE SOMETIMES THINK YOU CAN JUST CREATE A TOUCH BACK BY KICKING IT IN. TWO OF UTAH STATE’S RETURNS FOR TOUCH DOWNS THIS YEAR WERE RETURNS FROM DEEP, SO THE KEY IS, YES, I TRUST OUR COVERAGE GUYS. WE WANT TO PUT HANG TIME AND PLAY THE GAME. IF THEY AREN’T GOING TO CATCH IT THEN YOU HAVE TO BE READY TO COVER IT. THE RETURNER DIDN’T HAVE EVEN INTENTION OF CATCHING THE ONE. AND 99% OF KICK OFF RETURNS WILL CATCH THAT ONE.>>SO EARLIER IN THE GAME, IT WAS CALLED GOING TOWARDS THE BOUNDARY. ON THAT ONE — IS SKYLER PLAYING WITH FIRE, OR IS THAT WHERE IT IS SUPPOSED TO GO QUARTERBACK.>>THAT JUST GOT A LITTLE TOO WIDE, AND IT IS — WHAT WE ARE ASKING TO DO IS INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT. AGAINST A GOOD RETURN TEAM, YOU ARE HANGING THE BALL OUT, IT IS DIFFICULT TO GO AND COVER THAT MUCH FIELD SPACE. BY THE WAY, DID THE OFFICIAL MISPLACE ONE OF THE BALLS ONE YARD SHY OF THE 25? I THINK IT STARTED TO DRIVE AT THE 24, WE STARTED TO DRIVE AT THE 24, ON ONE OF OURS WHEN IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A 25.>>YEAH, ANY FAIR CATCH SHOULD BE EITHER AT THE SPOT OUTSIDE THE BENT FIVE,AR AS YOU ARE ALLOWEDDED TO AT THE 25.>>YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT THE BACK SPIN.>>I THINK AGAINST UTAH WE HAD ONE THAT LANDED AND JUST DIED.>>IS IT SOMETHING THAT’S BEEN — IS IT SOMETHING HE SAYS THAT’S BEEN CALLED SINCE AND WASN’T EXECUTED CORRECTLY? OR HAVE PLAYERS BEEN A ABLE TO CATCH IT?>>I DON’T KNOW IF ANY KICKER CAN ACTUALLY ACCURATELY BRING — ALL THE KICKS HAVE BACK SPIN. THE CHANCES OF WHETHER IT DOES IT OR NOT, THE RETURNER HAS TO JUST LET IT LAND. BUT THERE’S DEFINITELY NOT A CALL WE HAVE CALLED THAT.>>JAKE OLDROYD HAS A KICK OFF.>>HE OPENED UP THE GAME. SKYLER HAD SOME THINGS GOING ON WHERE HE COULDN’T MAKE ALL THE PRACTICE SESSIONS. AND JAKE HAD TAKEN TO PRACTICE LEADING UP. SO HE EARNED THE RIGHT TO START THE GAME WITH THAT, AND SKYLER WAS SUPPORTIVE OF JAKE AS THEY ARE. AND WE FELT LIKE SKYLER WAS BET FOR THE TEAM, AND HE CAME BACK IN AND DID HIS JOB.>>WAS THAT THE VICINITY.>>YOU KNOW LIKE ALL THE KICKS THEY MAKE, THAT’S JUST WHAT WE WANTED AND HE JUST GOT UNDERNEATH IT HE GOT THE BALL OUT, WHICH IS WHAT YOU HOPE WHEN YOU HANG HUNDRED SHORT. BUT HE GOT IT THE BALL OUT LAST THING FOR YOU, QUARTERBACK QUESTIONS AT THE TIME, ZACK HAS ALREADY GONE OUT, WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THE NUMBER THREE, AND NOW YOU ARE FOUR AND FOUR, THINGS CAN CHANGE IN A HURRY IN 24 GAME, AND YOU WORRY ABOUT THE NEXT GAME OF COURSE, BUT MAN, ONCE YOU HAVE TAKEN EIGHT, AND YOU CAN TAKE STOCK, WHERE DO YOU THINK THIS TEAM IS NOW?>>IS ALSO WHAT WE NEED TO BE ANYWAY IS BATTLE HARDENED. WE NEED TO OWN THE WHOLE PART OF THAT RECORD. THIS STREAK FEELS BREAK, BUT WE HAVE SUFFERS SOME HARD LOSSES AND THAT NEEDS TO REMAIN PART OF OUR MEMORY AND OUR MOTIVATION. AND REALIZE THAT EVERY SATURDAY IS A DIFFERENT SATURDAY, AND EVERY OPPONENT IS AWARE OF OUR FULL EFFORT.>>THE GOOD VIBES RIGHT KNOW ARE HARD EARNED RIGHT? THERE SHOULD BE SOME ABILITY TO ENJOY AND IT FEEL LIKE THIS IS A POSITIVE THING.>>IS THEY ARE. CONFIDENCE AND RESPECTING THE OPPONENT ARE NOT MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE. I THINK WE SHOULD BE CONFIDENT, CONFIDENT IN THE WAY WE HAVE BEEN PREPARING AND THE PRODUCT ON THE FIELD. BUT ABSOLUTELY RESPECT EVERY OPPONENT, AND WITH BE READY TO FIGHT EACH SATURDAY.>>IS ED, ALWAYS ENJOY OUR CONVERSATIONS WE WILL GIVE YOU NEXT WEEK OFF, AND SEE YOU BACK HERE IN A FEW WEEKS.>>THANK YOU.>>Greg: IS THAT IS COACH ED LAMB. WATCH COUNT DOWN TO KICK OFF SATURDAY AT 6:30 P.M. EASTERN, THE GAME ON ESPNU AND BYU RADIO. COMING BACK FOR POST GAME COVERAGE RIGHT AFTER. JOINING US IN THE “COORDINATOR’S CORNER,” WITH EARE LIVE FROM STUDIO C, ON BYU TV, STAY RIGHT>>NOISE PLAYBOYS.>>Greg: YOU ARE IN THE “COORDINATOR’S CORNER” BROUGHT TO YOU BY J.C.W., OUR BURGER BOYS. WELCOME IN DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR. GOOD TO SEE YOU.>>GOOD TO BE BACK.>>Greg: IS LAST TIME WE HAD YOU IN STUDIO THREE WEEKS AGO AND BYU WAS COMING OFF A LOSS, GETTING READY TO FACE A RANKED TEAM. CAN YOU REMIND US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR THOUGHTS A T THAT POINT IN THE SEASON? AND WHAT YOU AND KILANI FELT WAS NEEDED TO GET YOUR TEAM GO A BETTER PLACE?>>WOE JUST NEEDED SOMETHING TO SPARK IT UP. WE THOUGHT AS FAR AS JUST AGGRESSION, THE MESSAGE THAT WE WANTED FOR THE PLAYERS AS FAR AS GETTING AFTER IT WAS VERY IMPORTANT FOR US TO DELIVER THE MESSAGE OF STAYING AGGRESSIVE AND NOTTENING HAING UP, BOISE WAS COMING IN IT WOULD BE A TOUGH TEAM, BUT KILANI WAS REALLY INVOLVED AND WE WELCOMED THAT WITH ALL THE EXPERTISE HE BROUGHT. AND I THOUGHT IT’S BEEN GOOD FOR THE DEFENSE, AND A GOOD CHANGE FOR US.>>DID YOU BECOME A MUCH DIFFERENT DEFENSE FROM THEN UNTIL NOW?>>IS MAYBE A COUPLE OF WRINKLES HERE AND THERE, YOU KNOW. BUT THE MESSAGE AS WELL AS JUST HAVING KILANI A LITTLE BIT MORE INVOLVED WAS GOOD FOR THE BOYS. AND FOR US AS COACHES. KEEP US ON OUR TOES AS WELL AS JUST THE CHANGE. SO THERE WERE SOME THINGS THAT WE DID A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENTLY AGAINST BOISE. BUT OVERALL THE WHOLE THING — IT WAS GOOD, IT WAS GOOD TO YOU CAN THAT ABOUT THE GAMES AND TRY SOME NEW THINGS TOO.>>HOW TO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH KILANI AS CO DEFENSIVE MINDS.>>I AM TRYING TO DO WHAT THE JOB IS, WHICH I THINK IS TO MAKE THE HEAD COACH HAPPY, AND TO DO WHAT HE WANTS. I WANT THE DEFENSE TO HAVE THE PERSONALITY THAT THE HEAD COACHEN WAYS. ESPECIALLY SINCE HE IS A DEFENSIVE GUY, I THINK THAT’S THE JOB. AND OUR RELATIONSHIP IS PERFECT. IT IS AWESOME. SUPPORT HIM, AND WANT TO TO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO MAKE HIM SUCCESSFUL AND ALSO LET OUR BOYS WIN.>>Greg: IS SINCE THOSE TOUGH BACK TO BACK LOSSES BYU HAS RIPPED OFF BACK TO BACK WINS AND THEY WERE BOTH IN THESE REGIONAL RIVALRY GAMES TWO BIG GALES FOR THE PROGRAM, RIGHT?>>YES, ABSOLUTELY. WE HADN’T BEAT BOISE SINCE WE HAVE BEEN HERE. AND SO IT WAS HUGE FOR US TO GET THINGS BACK TO WHAT WE FELT LIKE WHERE THEY NEEDED TO BE. WHETHER WOE ARE MORE COMPETITIVE AND BRINGING THESE WINS BACK. SATURDAY NIGHT IN LOGAN, KILANI SAID IN THE POST GAME THAT HE WANTED THE DEFENSE TO HAVE A REALLY CLEAR PICTURE OF EVERY PART OF BYU’S GAME PLAN. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THAT PLAN YOU PUT TOGETHER?>>IT WAS PERFECT. IS IT WAS REALLY GOOD. I THOUGHT THE PLAYERS PLAYED WELL. REALLY GOOD OFFENSE. WOE WERE PLAYING A GOOD TEAM, A TEAM THAT WAS REALLY PRODUCTIVE, AND DID A GOOD JOB. JUST RUNNING THEIR OFFENSE, BUT I THOUGHT THAT THE PLAYERS PLAYED AND PLAYED TO THEIR ROLES AND DID A REALLY GOOD JOB OF KEEPING THE SCORE DOWN, AND KEEPING THEM OFF THE FIELD. AS MUCH AS WE CAN AND GETTING TAKE AWAYS.>>THE GAME COULDN’T HAVE GOTTEN OFF TO A BETTER START. DEFENSIVE THREE AND OUT ON THE FIRST POSSESSION.>>YEAH, THAT WAS HUGE. IT WAS HUGE FOR US. AND I THIS I THE WAY IT HAPPENED TOO, IT WAS — IT WAS A GUY MAKING A PLAY. AND WE WERE KIND OF — WE WEREN’T IN ANY KIND OF BLITZ OR ANYTHING, AND SO IT REALLY WAS JUST A GUY MAKING A PLAY.>>Greg: COUGARS FOLLOWED THAT POSSESSION THREE AND OUT, AND THE LAST COUPLE OF GAMES IN PARTICULAR, THE OFFENSE IS STRINGING TOGETHER NOW THOSE LONG SCORING DRIVES. MORE REST FOR YOUR GUYS AND CONSIDERING UTAH STATE’S TEMPO ESPECIALLY, THE LONGER THE OFFENSE CAN HAVE THE BALL THE BETTER FOR YOU.>>IS IT’S BEEN GREET. THE LAST FEW WEEKS THE WAY THAT THE OFFENSE HAS BEEN STORE AND THE WAY THEY STAY AGGRESSIVE, AND STAYING ON THE FIELD HAS BEEN HUGE FOR US. AND THE DEFENSE FEEDS OFF OF IT. AND I THINK THE DEFENSE HAS BEEN PLAYING WELL BECAUSE THE OFFENSE.>>CAN YOU GIVE US MORE INSIGHT ON HOW IT WAS TO CALL A GAME, WHERE THING A GUYS SNAPPED 82 PLAYS IN JUST 24 MINUTES?>>THAT’S A CRAZY FAST NUMBER.>>IS IT IS. IT IS UNBELIEVABLE THE AMOUNT OF SNAPS. BUT I THINK WHEN YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT FOOTBALL THEORY, IT CAN BE A POSITIVE, BUT IT CAN ALSO END UP HURTING YOU, I THINK THAT MANY PLAYERS IN THAT SHORT OF TIME, THEIR DEFENSE IS ALSO TIRED, AND YOU HAVE TO FLIP IT AND LOOK ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FOOTBALL. FOOTBALL THEORY, THE MORE PLAYS YOU WIN THE MORE YOU SCORE, IF THAT’S CORRECT, THEN I THINK THAT’S THE RIGHT THIN TO DO. BUT ONLY PUTTING UP 14-POINTS WITH THAT MANY PLAYS IS PROBABLY NOT THE BEST THING FOR THEIR DEFENSE. SO ON OUR SIDE OF IT I LOVE WHAT OUR TEAM IS DOING. START PLAYING TEAM FOOTBALL. THE OFFENSE IS DOING WELL, AND I THINK THE KIDS ARE PLAYING WITH BELIEVE WHICH IS GREAT.>>HOW DID YOU PREP FOR THAT TEMPO?>>IT IS DIFFICULT. THEY GO FASTER THAN ANYBODY WE HAVE SEEN IN A LONG TIME. WE JUST HAVE TO MAKE SURE WE DON’T HAVE GUYING RUNNING AROUND TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE CALL IS. AND KILANI DID A GOOD JOB AS FAR AS US DOING CERTAIN THINGS AND GETTING THE KIDS AND CLEATS IN THE GROUND, AND KNOWING WHAT THE CALL IS. I THOUGHT THAT THE KIDS PLAY WELL.>>IS DID YOU FEEL LIKE YOU WERE IN CONTROL OR LIVING ON THE EDGE.>>THE FIRST HALF IS TOUGH, BECAUSE THE FIELD GOALS COME OUT, AND MAKE THEIR ADJUSTMENTS THE YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE READY AS WELL. BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD START. AND THE TAKE AWAYS — IT WASN’T JUST THE TAKE AWAYS. THE FACT THAT OUR OFFENSE WAS TURNED AROUND AND CAPITALIZING ON SOME TAKE AWAYS I THOUGHT WAS HOW LONG FOR US. THE SCORE IS NOT MOVING MUCH, AND TRY TO COME AWAY AT HALF TIME FEELING LIKE THINGS AREN’T GOOD, BUT WE CAME INTO HALF TIME FEELING PRETTY CONFIDENT. ABOUT THE WAY THE GAME WAS GOING, AND THE ADJUSTMENTS.>>Greg: YOU HIT THE HAT TIME LOCKER ROOM UP. YOU HAD TO MAYBE A QUARTERBACK CHANGE,S JARON HALL GETS KNOCKED OUT OF THE GAME. AND HOW MUCH CONFIDENCE DOES THIS TEAM HAVE IN BAYLOR.>>A TON OF CONFIDENCE IN THE QUARTERBACK ROOM REALLY. WE AS A TEAM BELIEVE WE CAN COME IN AND WIN. AND BAYLOR IN BACK TO BACK, CAME IN AND SAVED US. SO KUDOS TO HIM. WE LOVE BAYLOR.>>HE IS A PRETTY COOL CUSTOMER. HE JUST GOES ABOUT HIS BUSINESS. THROW AS GOOD BALL, AND AS WE HAVE SEEN HE MAKES PLAYS AT A REALLY HIGH RATE. AND IT IS FUN TO TALK ABOUT THE PERSONALITY OF BAYLOR BECAUSE HE DOES THAT WHILE BEING CHILLED OUT.>>YEAH, HE IS A VERY POISED PLAYER. WE SEE THAT IN PRACTICE, HE DOES A GOOD JOB AND EXECUTING LIKE I SAID, I THINK THAT IN THE QUARTERBACK ROOM, WE HAVE A LOT OF GOOD PLAYERS AND A GOOD COACH.>>ALL RIGHT, BREAK TIME, COMING UP HOW BYU PITCHED THE SECOND HALF SHUT OUT UP IN LOGAN. AND WE IDENTIFY COACH TUIAKI’S DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK. THIS IS “COORDINATOR’S CORNER” ON BYU TV BROUGHT TO YOU BY J.C.W.’S,ING THE BURGER “COORDINATOR’S CORNER” IS BROUGHT TO YOU IN PART BY:.>>Greg: BYU A WINNER AT UTAH STATE ON THE WEEKEND. COACH WE SAW YOU IN PREGAME RENEWING SOME ACQUAINTANCES, LOGAN WAS PART OF HIS COACHING HISTORY.>>IT WAS. I WAS THERE FOR THREE YEARS. I LAD A GOOD TIME. LOVED IT THERE, I WAS THERE WITH GARY, AND I HAD A GOOD TIME WHEN I WAS THERE.>>YOU SEEN THE RIFLERY FROM BOTH SIDES, HOW IS IT — HOW IS IT MAYBE EVOLVED OVER YOUR TIME?>>IS YOU KNOW WHEN WE FIRST GOT THERE, I THINK IT HAD BEEN A DECADE PLUS. SINCETH UTAH STATE HAS WON,S AND WE WON THE SECOND YEAR THAT I WAS THERE, AND IT WAS THE FIRST TIME IN A VERY VERY LONG TIME. SKIN THEN I THINK IT’S BEEN MORE COMPETITIVE. I KNOW THE FIRST YEAR WE WERE THERE PEOPLE ASKED WHAT IT MEANT TO HAVE THE RIVALRY, AND SAID IT WASN’T A RIVALRY YET. I THINK NOW IT IS A GOOD HEALTHY RIVALRY. AND GOING BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN THE COACHES TOO IT’S BEEN GOOD.>>Greg: IS A UTAH GAME WILL BE ON A DIFFERENT LEVEL, BUT YOU CAN TELL THIS WAS EMBRACED AS A RIVALRY.>>ABSOLUTELY. IT MEANS IS THIS INK TO THE PLAYERS.>>Greg: IS BACK TO THE GAME SATURDAY, BYU LED AT THE HALF TIME, SECOND HALF SCORE 21-0 COUGARS. HOW DETERMINED WERE YOU TO KEEP OFF THE BOARD AND GET THAT SHUT OUT?>>THE PLAYERS ADJUST ISED WELL, THERE WERE A FEW WRINKLES WE THREW IN, THAT MADE IT A LITTLE BIT HARDER BUT IT WAS JUST AWESOME THE WAY THE PLAYERS PLAYED. ONCE THEY SETTLED DOWN AND MANAGED THE TEMPO, THEY JUNCTION STOOD CERTAIN PLAYS AND THIS IS WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO DO, AND THEN THEY SETTLED IN AND PLAYS.>>3-1ST HALF TAKE AWAYS. TWO MORE IN THE SECOND HALF. SO BYU ENDS US PLUS TWO, COUGARS TOP 10 NATIONALLY RIGHT NOW IN THE MARGIN, TOP 10 TAKE AWAY PER GAME, TOP 10 I.M.P.ES PER GAME, THE DEFENSE IS ESTABLISHED ITSELF,S NOW THERE’SEN A IDENTITY NOW AS DISRUPTERS.>>IS IT IS. YOU KNOW, IT IS INTERESTING BECAUSE IT’S A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT THAN IN THE PAST. WOE WERE A LITTLE BIT MORE BLITZ HEAVY. WE POLICED A BLITZED A LOT. IN THIS GAME WE PLAYED DROP 866 TIMES.>>Greg: IS OUT OF 82.>>IS THE OUT OF 82 SNAPS. AND WHEN YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT BEING AGGRESSIVE, AGGRESSIVE REALLY IS ALL JUST KIND OF HOW YOU DEFINE IT. FOR US AND THE WAY THE KIDS TOOK IT IN, WE ARE AGGRESSIVELY GOING TO RUSH THREE, AND DROP PEOPLE IN. AND THEY DON’T — YOU 20 GET HAVE MANY SACKS. AND WE THOUGHT WE WOULD BE RAMMING OUR HEAD INTO THE WALL TRYING TO BLITZ TONS OF PEOPLE. SO WOE SAID WE WILL FORCE HIM, AND HE HAD A BUDGER OF TAKE AWAYS WE DID HAVE A COUPLE OF SACKS. WE HAD TO SACK STRIP THE BACK THAT I THOUGHT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN AUSTIN.>>BUT IT WAS REALLY RUSHING THROUGH. THE FLOOR WAS AGGRESSIVE ON OUR END. AND THE KIDS JUST RESPONDED TO IT WELL. THEY DIDN’T FEEL LIKE IT WAS — WE WERE IN A NONAGGRESSIVE DEFENSE, IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST THINGS WE COULD HAVE DONE AGAINST THIS TEAM. AND MOVING FORWARD WE END UP DOING SOMETHING DIFFERENT, JUST DEPENDS ON THE SCHEME WE ARE FACING.>>BUT DROPPING BUT GETTING PICKS OUT OF SITTING BACKER ES. FEN OF THEM COME FROM THE LINEBACKER CORE, THAT’S A LOT OF I.N.T.S FOR A LINEBACKER GROUP. PAYTON WILL GAR SCORES HIS THIRD OF THE SEASON. NO LINEBACKER IN THE UNCAN, HAS MORE I.N.T.S THAN PAYTON RIGHT NOW.>>YEAH. THE STUFF WE ARE DOING, WHICH IS BASICALLY KEHL THE QUARTERBACK YOU AREN’T THROWING IT DEEP. AND WITH THE LONG BACKERS WE HAVE, AND HOW THEY ARE SCHOOLED UP. THEY DID REALLY GOOD. THEY STEAL BALLS AND I THINK IT IS DIFFICULT TO COMPLETE SOME OF THOSE UNDERNEATH ROUTS. AGAIN, IT WAS VERY SIMILAR TO THE GAME PLAN THAT WE DID AGAINST U.S.C., THIS GAME, YOU LINEMAN WILL HAVE TO RUSH FOR SIX. AND THIS QUARTERBACK WILL FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE AND FLUSH OUT OF THE POCKET. AND WE WILL COME AWAY WITH THIS ONE.>>I HAVE TO ASK YOU ABOUT THIS ONE, IT JUST HIT MY MIND, SOMETIMES YOU SEE HEAVY HARD HITTING SACKS FROM RUSH IN. NOT OFTEN DO YOU GET THE SMACK ‘EM SACKS, HAD ONE OF THE BEST OF THE SEASON ON THE WEEKEND.>>YEAH, THAT WAS GOOD. ON THE SIDE THAT HE IS FIRSTING ON HAD A GOOD SACK LAST TIME HE WAS AT MAVERICK STADIUM HE CAUGHT A TOUCH DOWN PASS, AND IT WAS A REALLY NICE CATCH. HE MAKE AS GREAT CATCH IN THE END ZONE, THAT’S WHEN HE WAS BACK A WIDE RECEIVER. AND NOW HE IS A CORNER AND MAKING AN I.N.T. T THAT BASICALLY ENDS THE GAME.>>YEAH, THAT WAS HUGE. I WAS HOPING HE TOOK THAT ONE BACK. ALL THE WAY TO THE PORCH. LOOK AT THIS.>>HE CAN GO, RIGHT.>>IS HAS SOME WHEELS HE IS REALLY FAST PLAYER. SOME OF THEM ARE TRYING TO BLOCK FOR HIM, THAT WAS HUGE FOR US TO BE ABLE TO SEE HIM DO THAT, AND BESIDES THIS PLAY TOO, THERE WERE A COUPLE HE IS COMING DOWN AND JUST HITTING PEOPLE. VERY PHYSICAL AND HE PLAYED WELL.>>HE HAS BEEN IN AND OUT, AND SWITCH SIDES AND NOW HE IS HAVING A STRONG FINISH.>>YEAH.>>S I THINK HE FOUND HIS PLACE. COMFORTABLE WITH WHERE HE IS. THE COACH HAS DONE A GOOD JOB WITH HIM. YOU WITH ENTER INTO THE GAME WITHOUT LORENZO, HE IS PLAYING REALLY GOOD FOOTBALL AS YOU KNOW WE ROTATE DEFENSIVE LINEMAN. BUT LOSING HIM WAS HARD. LIKE YOU SAW, I THOUGHT HE HAD A NICE GAME, GABE SUMMERS IS ANOTHER KID THAT STEPPED UP AND PLAYS AND DID A REALLY GOOD JOB. SO THERE ARE SOME THAT ARE STILL ROTATING TO DO A GOOD JOB.>>KEENAN DIDN’T PLAY SATURDAY RIGHT?>>I THINK HE WILL BE OKAY FOR THIS WEEK. HE COULD HAVE PLAYED AND WE WERE GOING TO HOLD HIM JUST IN CASE, BUT WE FELT LIKE WE NEEDED AN EXTRA WEEK.>>S AS WE GET LATER IN THE SEASON, WE GHETTO THAT FOUR GAME WINDOW. SO PROBABLY SITTING AT FIVE, WHICH GETS YOU THINKING ABOUT A COUPLE OF D.B.S THAT WE HOPE CAN COME BACK. THEY ARE DOWN WELL. I THINK TROY RIGHT NOW, WE ARE PROBABLY THINKING IS GOING TO END UP BEING THOSE LAST THREE GAMES IN A BOWL GAME. TROY REALLY IS STARTING TO PRACTICE. AND CHRIS IS PRACTICING AS WELL, JUST NOT AS MANY SNAPS. I THINK HE MAY BE — WHILE WE END UP PLAYING THE LAST THREE GAMES, BUT TROY MAY MAKE AN APPEARANCE. I THINK THEY ARE BOTH MORE LIKELY TO BE IN THE LAST THREE GAMES.>>SO WE KNOW AT FOUR AND FOUR, YOU ARE TWO AWAY FROM POST SEASON ELIGIBILITY. A COUPLE OF HOME GAMES RIGHT NOW, IT WOULD BE NICE TO END A HOME SCHEDULE KNOWING YOU HAVE PUNCHED A POST SEASON BOWL.>>YEAH. MY DAUGHTER TOLD ME WE ARE GOING BOWLING, SO I SAID OKAY WE ARE GOING BOWLING. WE HAVE TO STRING THESE WINS BACK TO BACK, AND THE BOWL IS GOING TO BE GREAT WHEN WE GET THERE, BUT THE GOAL FOR SUS JUST FINISH THE SEASON THE RIGHT WAY, AND BEAT THE ROAST OF THE TEAM ON THE SCHEDULE.>>LET’S INTRODUCE FOLKS TO YOUR DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF PEEK, WHO DID YOU PICK.>>PAYTON WILL GAR, I THOUGHT THEY BOTH PLAYED WELL, THEY ARE THE ONES THAT CAME AWAY WITH THE PICKS. PLAYING AT A VERY HIGH LEVEL, THEY ARE BIG TIME PLAYERS FOR US. THEY DO A REALLY GOOD JOB, I THOUGHT THIS WAS THE WEEK FOR THEM.>>Greg: DID PAYTON COME TO YOU AS A SCHOLARSHIP.>>HE WAS A WALKIN O. AND EARNED A SCHOLARSHIP. AND HAS PLAYED REALLY GOOD FOOTBALL. REALLY, EVER SINCE HE CAME. WE THOUGHT INSTEAD OF FINDING ANOTHER BACKER, WE WILL JUST PUT THIS GUY ON, AND REALLY HAPPY ABOUT THAT.>>S SO YOUR DEFENSIVE PLAYERS OF THE WEEK ARE A FORMER WALK ON AND FORMER RUNNING BACK.>>YES. THAT’S RIGHT.>>Greg: NOT BAD. TIME AGAIN TO TAKE A SHORT BREAK, AND AS WE DO, THIS REMINDER THAT FOR YOUR I DO THAT DAY PLAY-BY-PLAY, TUNE IN WEEKDAYS. NOON EASTERN TIME. THE COACH GIVING HIS THOUGHTS ON THIS WEEKEND’S HOME GAME WITH LIBERTY. BROUGHT TO YOU ALWAYS AS THE BURGER>>TRIPS TO THE RIGHT, HAND OFF MIDDLE AND WRIGHT IS GOING. THEY HAVE IT, AND IT IS A FUMBLE FORCE, AND I DO BELIEVE KAUFUSI SCOOPED IT UP.>>THE MIDDLE HALF WAY SEEMS HIM COLLAPSE. KAUFUSI POUNCING ON IT. COUGAR FOOTBALL.>>Greg: IS ALL RIGHT, FINAL SEGMENT OF THE “COORDINATOR’S CORNER,S” COMING UP SATURDAY AT LAVELL EDWARD STADIUM, 4 AND 4 HOME TO 6 AND 2. AND THE STATS BUT AGAINST A RELATIVELY LIGHT SCHEDULE. THAT SAID, SOME OF THE NUMBERS THIS TEAM IS PUTTING UP,S VERY IMPRESSIVE.>>I THINK THEY ARE A GOOD OFFENSE. THEY DO A GOOD JOB, THEY HAVE A RECEIVER OVER 1,000 YARDS. DOING A GOOD JOB RUNNING THE BALL, IS TWO GOOD RUNNING BACKS AND O LINEMAN THAT ARE GOOD PLAYERS. SO NOT KNOWING ANYTHING BEFORE THEN, AND BEFORE THAT AND THEN JUST WATCHING THEM ON SUNDAY, AND TODAY I THINK THAT THEY ARE A PRETTY GOOD OFFENSE.>>Greg: IS A GOOD OFFENSE THAT HAS A REALLY HIGH RED ZONE TOUCH DOWN PERCENTAGE AS WELL. NEAR 70% THERE. YOU DO THAT YO WILL BE ONE OF THE BEST IN THE COUNTRY. THAT’S WHERE BYU WAS LAST YEAR. THE RED ZONE TOUCH DOWN RATE, YOU MENTIONED THE QUARTERBACK AND THE WIDE OUT. BUCK SHOT CALVERT. I GUESS YOU CAN SAY THEY ARE AS GOOD AS THEIR NAMES.>>YEAH THE FILM IS GOOD. FILL SYSTEM REALLY GOOD RIGHT NOW. SO WE’LL COME TOGETHER, AND WE’LL GAME PLAN AND TRY TO PUT SOMETHING TOGETHER TO MAKE SURE THAT WE CAN HOLE THEM DOWN. BUT THERE’S DEFINITELY A LOT ON THIS SIDE, AND THE SHOWER POWER SO THEY CAN SCORE SOME POINTS.>>Greg: SOCIAL MEDIA ASKING AND YOU ALLOWEDDED TO IT EARLIER. WHY DOESN’T BYU HAVE IN US PACKAGE A MORE BLITZ PACKAGES?>>LIKE I SAID, I THINK THERE’S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FOOTBALL SCHEME, AND FOOTBALL THEORY. AND ALL THOSE SCHEMES EXIST. THEY ARE ALL THERE IN THE PLAY BOOK, BUT IT IS JUST WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO WIN A GAME, REALLY WHAT DOES THE OTHER TEAM DO. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO TO SLOW THEM DOWN, AND THERE’S TIMES WHERE WE HAVE TO KEEP THE PRESSURE, AND THERE ARE TIMES WHEN WE AREN’T GOING TO GET THERE. AND THERE MAY BE TIMES WHERE YOU FROM TRYING TO HELP OUT THE SECONDARY, OR THINKING THE D LINE NEEDS HELP. SO I THINK THERE’S MORE INVOLVED THAN JUST SCHEME,S THERE’S PERSONALNY, WHAT THEY DONE ON THE OFFENSIVE SIDE. WHAT ARE YOU DOING FAST TRYING TO KEEP POINTS OFF THE BOARD.>>Greg: IS ALL RIGHT, PLEATER IT, SEE YOU NEXT WEEK. THAT WILL DO IT FOR ANOTHER EDITION OF “COORDINATOR’S CORNER”. NEXT WEEK WE WILL SEE YOU NEXT MOANED HERE IN THE “COORDINATOR’S CORNER” ON BYU-TV.
