SMOTE ♪.>>GOOD JOB, NICE PLAY, BOYS.>>HELLO, AGAIN.>>WELCOME INSIDE STUDIO C. FOR ANOTHER EDITION OF THE “COORDINATOR’S CORNER” PRESENTED BY J.C.W.’S, THE BURGER BOYS. COMING UP, WE RECAP ANOTHER THRILLING OVERTIME WIN FOR THE COUGARS. WITH THE DEFENSIVE AND OFFENSIVE COORDINATORS WITH LLAISA TUIAKI AND JEFF GRIMES. USE THE # C.C. BYU AND YOUR QUESTION MAY MAKE IT ON THE AIR. IT WAS A GREAT DAY FOR FOOTBALL, SATURDAY, AND A GREAT WIN FOR BYU. AT LAVELL EDWARDS STADIUM, FIRST HOME WIN OVER A RANKED TEAM, AS THE COUGARS GO TO O.T. FOR A SECOND STRAIGHT WEEK. AND TO BREAK IT DOWN WE WELCOME IN DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR.>>GOOD TO BE BACK.>>A FUN ONE.>>ANOTHER FUN ONE, YOU HAVE HAD BACK TO BACK WEEKS THAT ARE AMONG THE MOST DRAMATICKIC YOU CAN HAVE.>>YEAH, WHEN YOU HAVE A COUPLE OF GOOD TEAMS GOING AT IT, IT COMES DOWN TO THE WIRE LIKE THAT.>>Greg: WHAT CONCERNED YOU MOST COMING INTO THE GAME.>>THERE ARE STILL PLAYERS THAT I THOUGHT WERE REALLY GOOD. I KNOW THAT THE FRESHMAN QUARTERBACK GOT A LOT OF ACCOLADES. BUT WE’VE — AS WE LOOKED AT IT WE THOUGHT THIS KID WILL BE A GOOD PLAYER, BUT RIGHT NOW HE IS STILL A FRESHMAN. AND WE WANTED TO PUT PRESSURE ON HIM BY FORCING HIM TO MAKE THE TOUGH THROWS. AND REALLY GET THE D LINE BELIEF IN THREE MAN RUSH TO JUST KNOW THAT THE GAME PLAN WILL RELISH YOUR ROLE, YOU HAVE TO RUSH FOR SIX SECONDS WHILE YOU DOUBLE TEAM. AND I THOUGHT THEY DID A GOOD JOB AND THEY PLAYED HARD. JUST PUTTING A LITTLE BIT OF PRESSURE ON THEM, THE THING TOO THAT I THINK A LOT OF TIMES IS DIFFICULT FOR SOMEBODY TO REALIZE IS WHEN YOU ARE A QUARTERBACK, THERE’S ALWAYS A CLOCK IN YOUR HEAD. THERE’S TIMING ROUTS. THINGS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. AND WHEN IT ISN’T THERE, IF YOU ARE A YOUNG QUARTERBACK, THE CLOCK IN YOUR HEAD IS OKAY THE BALL HAS TO BE OUT. I WILL GET HIT SOON, I HAVE TOEM HAVEBLE AND LOOK FOR SOMEBODY ELSE. AND WE GOT TO THROW A LOT OF CHECK DOWNS WHICH IS WHERE WE WANTED IT TO GO.>>Greg: YOU CAN BE A DISRUPTIVE DEFENSE WITHOUT HAVING TO SEND A TON OF GUYS.>>YEAH, WE TALKS ABOUT DEFENSIVELY, WE WILL PRESSURE THIS QUARTERBACK BY MAKING HIM DISRUPTING THE TIME IN HIS HEAD, DISRUPTING THE ROUTS AND PRESSURES HIM BY MAKING HIM FEEL THE BALL HAS TO GET OUT. BUT ALSO, I JUST LOVE HOW THE D LINE PLAYED. THEY PLAYED SUPER HARD. IT WASN’T PERFECT, BUT THEY BOUGHT INTO THEIR ROLE. TRYING TO FIND A WAY TO PRESSURE A QUARTERBACK. AND THAT WAS A BIG DIFFERENCE FOR US. SAYING WE WILL DO THIS FOR THREE, REALLY CHALLENGE THE LINE AND GET F A IT.>>EVEN WITH THREE YOU PLAY A LOT.>>WE DID. WE GOT TO ROTATE THEM. ON THE HEAD SET THE WHOLE TIME, I JUST SAID KEEP THOSE BOYS FRESH. WE HAVE THREE OR FOUR PLAYERS GET THE NEXT FEW IN, AND WE FELT LIKE WE CAN GO THROE OR FOUR DEEP, WITH THE 3-D LINEMAN IN THE GAME. AND JUST IT WAS LIKE KEEP THEM FRESH, AND BELIEVE IN THE GAME PLAN, TRUST THE PROCESS, AND LET THEM GO AND DO IT.>>YOU BRING UP FRESHMAN QUARTERBACK WAS MAKING HIS FIRST ROAD START, AND YOU PICK HIM OFF THREE TIMES. TWO LED DIRECTLY TO BOUGH SCORER’S. AND THEN THE THIRD IN OVERTIME. THEY WERE HUGE WHEN THEY CAME AND WHERE THEY CAME ON THE FIELD.>>THAT WAS HUGE FOR US. WE KNEW THAT THE OPPORTUNITIES WOULD COME TO US, WE JUST KNEW WE HAD TON’T CALIZE. WE THOUGHT IF WE CAN GET A STAT EARLY AND A PICK EARLY, IT WILL PUT A LOT OF DOUBT IN HIS MIND.>>HOW GOOD A GRAB IS THIS?>>UNBELIEVABLE. HE GRABS THE BACK END AND COMES DOWN WITH IT. A REALLY ATHLETIC MOVE, THE WAY THAT HE WAS MOVING HIS EYES ON THE QUARTERBACK, ALL THOSE THINGS AND COACH LAMB WORKED REALLY HARD ALL WEEK, THOSE GUYS PLAYING WITH GOOD TECHNIQUE.>>HOW ABOUT THIS ONE.>>ISAIAH LOOKING UP, THE DEEP CROSSER WHICH IS SOMETHING THAT WE WORK ALL WEEK. AND JUST EXECUTING IT TO A TEE. AND EXACTLY THE PERSON THAT WE THOUGHT WOULD BE ABLE TO STEAL THAT ONE. BUT IT WAS TOUGH FOR THE QUARTERBACK TO SEE THAT FROM THE BACK SIDE.>>Greg: AND THEN THE LAST I.N.T. YOU END UP PICKING UP WINS THE GAME.>>YES, JUST A CREDIT TO THE BACKERS. PLAYING WITH A LOT OF TIMES WHEN YOU ARE A BACKER PLAYS WITH BAD TECHNIQUE, THOSE THINGS ARE COMPLETED. BUT HE DOESN’T STEP BACKWARDS. HE JUMPS IT. TIPS IT. AND WE HAVE GUYING RUNNING TO THE BALL. AND THAT’S WHAT WE ENTER UP COMING UP WITH PLAYS.>>SO ON THE DAY YOU END UP WITH MULTIPLE SACKS. TWO FORCED FUMBLES, FIVE BREAK UPS AND YOU TALK ABOUT THE THREE PICKS IT IS A PRETTY ACTIVE DAY.>>YEAH. IF WE COULD HAVE COME OVER WITH THE OTHER TWO, THE ONE THAT COULD HAVE ENTERED THE GAME, — BUT WE MISSED TWO OPPORTUNITIES ON THE PICKS. THATS.>>BOUNCING AROUND.>>WE GAVE UP A BIG PLAY, JUST ENDED UP MAKING THE BIG PLAY, AND COULD HAVE GOT OUT OF THE DRIVE WITH THE TIP BALL AND A PICK. THAT ENDS UP MISSING, BUT LATER ON COMES ONE THE SAME EXACT PLAY. WHICH I THOUGHT WAS HARDENER THE OVERTIME RUN THE PLAY THAT HE MADE. AND IT WAS JUST A HUGE DAY FOR THE BOYS, LIKE JUST — REALLY APPRECIATE THE WAY THEY BOUGHT INTO THE GAME PLAN, AND EXECUTED AND IT WAS FUN DAY TO BE OUT THERE PLAYING.>>SO FIRST GAME, NO TAKE AWAYS YOU NEXT TWO GAMES. FOUR TAKE AWAYSWAYS AND WIN THEM BOTH.>>YEAH. ONE OF THOSE STATS YOU LOOK AT, OVER THE YEARS THAT THE IS JUST — BESIDES THE SCORE, MAYBE THE MOST POSSIBILITY THING. BESIDES THE SCORE, THE OUTCOME OF THE GAME, TAKE AWAYS IS A BIG PART OF IT.>>DROWN MENTIONED HOW MANY YOU PLAYS UPFRONT, BUT REALLY ALL OVER THE FIELD MAYBE GUYS THAT WEREN’T DEEPER, BUT MAYBE STARTERS THAT WERELESSER NAMES. BUT THEN IS BROUGHT OVER TO D. PAYTON WE SAW, MAX TOOLLY, WE SAID THEIR NAME AS LOT ON SATURDAY. BUT THEY WEREN’T NAME NASR WITH TERRIBLY WELL KNOWN.>>GETTING THOSE TWO BRAD TRANSFER RUNNING BACKS AND BEING DEEPER WITH THE RUNNING BACKS. BUT GETTING HIM BACK WAS HOW LONG FOR US. HE IS A GREAT PLAYER. BUT GOING INTO THE SEASON, WE HAD A LOT OF GOOD WITH THE LINEBACKERS. AND I THINK JUST THE NEXT FEW YEARS WE WILL CONTINUE TO HEAR ABOUT THEM. THEY ARE ALL GOOD PLAYERS, JUST YOUNG, BUT A LOT OF UP SIDE. A LOT OF PHYSICALITY AND ABILITY WITH THEM.>>BACK TO THE TURNOVERS FOR A MOMENT. THE TAKE AWAYS ARE GREAT, BUT TURNOVER MARGIN IS A JOINT EFFORT. MEANING THE O HAS TO DO ITS PART. AND THESE ARE TURNOVER FREE GAMES.>>YES. HUGE. AND THAT’S — IT’S GOT TO BE LIKE THAT, IN ORDER FOR US. WE HAVE TO TAKE IT AWAY, AND THE OFFENSE HAS TO TAKE CARE OF IT. WHICH AS A TEAM, VERY VERY EXCITING. WE ARE PLAYING GOOD BALL THAT WAY. IT JUST SHOWS WE CAN COMPETE, WE CAN COMPETE WITH ANYBODY. IF WE ARE PLAYING DISCIPLINED GOOD FOOTBALL, AND TAKING CARE OF IT WE WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN.>>YOU ARE SO CONCERNED WITH YOUR BALL, WHAT DO YOU HAVE.>>I LOVE WHAT THE OFFENSE IS DOING. THE BELIEF ON THE SIDELINES SIDM THE DEFENDERS IS HUGE. AND THEY ARE COMING TOGETHER AS A TEAM. JUST BECAUSE OF THAT THEIR ABILITY TO DRIVE DOWN AND SCORE, AND YOU HAVE — YOU’VE GOT A QUARTERBACK WHO SEES A ONE ON ONE MATCH UP AND THROWS IT TO A RECEIVER. AGAINST SOME BIG TIME CORNER, AND I KNOW THE BOYS ON THE SIDELINE ARE PUMPED UP ABOUT THAT, AND SEEING ALL THE PRODUCTION THAT IS COMING OUT, AND THE BLUES — US COMING TOGETHER AS A TEAM RIGHT NOW, IT IS HUGE.>>RIGHT ON. AS WE HEAD TO BREAK, WHEN WE COME BACK, WE WILL SEE HOW BYU INDEED AGAIN SEALED THE DEAL TO DEFEAT U.S.C. AND WE WILL GET THE DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK. A REMINDER ABOUT BYU FOOTBALL, THAT’S TUESDAY AT 8:30 EASTERN 5:30 PACIFIC ON THE BYU-TV APP. AND THEN REBROADCAST ON BYU-TV WEDNESDAYS AT 1:00 P.M. EASTERN, 10:00 A.M. PACIFIC. MORE WITH DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR COMING UP NEXT. HERE IN THE “COORDINATOR’S CORNER” BROUGHT TO YOU BY>>HE CLAPS THE HAND, HE WILL THROW. QUICKLY, INTERCEPTED DID THEY GET IT. IF THEY GOT IT IT IS OVER, IT IS OVER. THE COUGARS PICK IT OFF. IN OVERTIME THEY WON IT.>>THAT WAS A LATE SATURDAY AFTERNOON, AS BYU CAME BACK FROM DOWN 24-17 TO DEFEAT TWENTY-FOURTH RANKS USC. FIRST TIME BYU HAS EVER PLAYED OVERTIME GAMES IN BACK TO BACK WEEKS. AND KILANI REMAINS UNDEFEATED NOW AT 3-0 AND ALL THE WINS AGAINST P. 5 PROGRAMS. VISITING NOW AND COACH, TOUGH TO TOP WHAT YOU DID IN WEEK ONE, BUT I FEEL LIKE YOU DID IT IN WEEK TWO, BUT IN WEEK THREE.>>YEAH, THAT WAS — IT WAS CRAZY JUST WATCHING. AND IT IS LIKE WOW, THAT WAS CRAZY. THAT HAPPENED THAT WAY. BUT SO PROUD OF THE BOYS AND SUPER PROUD. AND JUST HONORED TO BE A PART OF THE PROGRAM RIGHT NOW.>>THE TROJANS CAME INTO THE TOP 25 TEAM, SO IT IS THE FIRST HOME WIN. AND YOU HAVE NOW PLAYED GOOD BACK TO BACK TO BACK TEAMS. TENNESSEE DEPARTMENT LOOK GREAT, BUT THEY HAVE GOTTEN BETTER, I THINK THAT WILL BE AN OKAY TEAM. AND YOU THINK JUST IN TERMS OF PREPPING FOR TENNESSEE THAT WAS A GOOD TEAM YOU BEAT.>>I THOUGHT IT WAS A DIFFERENT TEAM THAT WE FACED. IT WAS A TEAM WE SAW ON FILM ON WEEK ONE. THEY CAME OUT WITH — WE GOT THE BEST VERSION OF TENNESSEE. THEY WERE REALLY GOOD. AND THEY LOOKED BETTER THIS PAST WEEK. AND PITCHED THE SHUT OUT AND LOOKS GOOD. UH BY THEYLY BE A GOOD TEAM. AND FOR US THIS YEAR.>>HOW DID THIS TEAM STACK UP TO YOUR FIRST TWO CHALLENGES?>>YOU KNOW, DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHER TWO. AS FAR AS JUST THE TYPE OF GAME WE WERE GETTING AND WE KNEW THAT. BUT THEY WERE SUPER ATHLETIC, A LOT OF BIG PHYSICAL PLAYERS AND THE TEAM ROSE TO THE CHALLENGE IN ORDER TO PLAY THEM.>>GOT A LOT OF ATTENTION ON THE D LINE COMING UP, WHAT WAS THE PLAN FOR HIM?>>YOU KNOW I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE OFFENSE DID, I THINK PRIMES WILL TALK ABOUT THAT, BUT I KNOW ON THE I WAS CANNIVE SIDE, THEY ALL KNOW EACH OTHER, AND AS A MATTER OF FACT, LORENZO ALL OF THEM CONCERN THEY WERE IN THE SAME RECRUITING CLASS, AND SO THEY ALL KNOW EACH OTHER, WANT TO BE BETTER AND SOMETIMES IT IS LIKE YOU DIDN’T WANT ME, AND I AM A BETTER PLAYER THAN YOU ARE, ALL THAT STUFF BUT IT IS CERTAINLY HUGE FOR OUR PROGRAM. FOR THE STATE OF UTAH. IF RECRUITING FOR THESE KIDS THAT WE GET TO WIN A GAME LIKE THAT, AND YOU SEE A LOT OF TEAMS LEAVING TO GO TO OTHER PROGRAMS IT IS HUGE FOR US.>>Greg: AGAIN, HE PLAYS ON THE OFFENSE NOW. WAS HE A GUY THAT HAD A U.S.C. CONNECTION?>>YES, HE WAS COMMITTED FOR A WHILE, WE CAME IN I THINK IT WAS THE LAST WEEK OR TWO, AND ENDED UP GETTING HIM. HIS PARENTS LOVED IT. WANTED HIM TO BE HERE, AND HE WAS ORIGINALLY A DEFENSIVE LINEMAN AND NOW HE IS PLAYING THE O LINE, HIS FAMILY MOVED OVER HERE FROM CALIFORNIA, LIVE HERE AND A HUGE DAY FOR HIM TOO.>>AND NOW HE IS A STARTING RIGHT TACKLE SO THE GAME ENDING WE SAW THERE AND THEN IT GETS PUT ON HOLD, THEY SAY CLEAR THE FIELD WHILE THEY LOOK AT IT. DID YOU FEEL IT WOULD STICK.>>I WAS HOPING BUT BY THAT TIME, EVERYBODY WAS ON THE FIELD. I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW MY MOM IS AT THE GAME, AND THEN MY MOM IS GRABBING ME AND HUGGING ME, OH, HEY, MOM. MY DAUGHTERS RAN DOWN IS WHEN THEY ANNOUNCED THAT, I SAID YOU NEED TO BACK UP AND GO UP TO THE STANDS AND MY DAUGHTER IS LIKE HOW DO WE GET UP THERE, I DON’T KNOW, HOW DID YOU GET DOWN HERE, WHEN THEY ANNOUNCED THAT IT WAS OVER, JUST WATCHING THE SCREEN, MAKING THE DECISION, IT WAS JUST A BIG MOMENT FOR THE PROGRAM, FOR THE FANS FOR EVERYBODY. IT WAS COOL.>>Greg: I WILL SAY THIS, THE CROWD DID A NICE JOB OF BACKING UP BEFORE THEY GOT TO COME BACK OUT, SO SO THEY DID IT ALL OVER AGAIN, AND NO BETTER FEELING. THOUSANDS ON THE FIELD.>>IT WAS SO COOL, SO COOL MOMENT TO BE A PART OF.>>THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT PLAYERS AND COACHES TAKE WITH THEM RIGHT, IT WAS A TOP 25 TEAM. SATURDAY AFTERNOON GAME. AND THE FANS RUSH THE FIELD, IT TAKE AS WHILE TO COME DOWN FROM THAT.>>OH, MAN. GOING TO CHURCH, SUPER EXCITED TO WAKE UP AT 6:00 A.M. GO TO CHURCH MEETINGS YOU KNOW. WALKING IN A LITTLE PEP IN YOUR STEP. AND IT WAS FUN. IT WAS FUN FOR EVERYBODY. IT WAS FUN FOR THE STATE AND THE FANS AND COUGAR NATION AS WELL. RIGHT NOW FOR US IT IS COMING BACK TO THAT, BUT WE HAVE MOVED ON, AND PREPPED AND GET READY.>>Greg: LOCKER ROOM CELEBRATION TOO.>>IT WAS — I TRY TO STAY AWAY, THE LAST TIME I CELEBRATED KILANI HAD TO JUMP IN THE CIRCUMSTANCE TOLL DANCE, AND I TRIED TO BREAK DAWNS, AND I JACKED UP MY WRIST IT WAS MESSED UP FOR A GOOD EIGHT WEEKS. SO I TRY TO STAY ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF THE CIRCLES. SO HE DOESN’T TRY TO CALL ME IN THERE TO BREAK DANCE.>>YOU DON’T WANT TO BREAK SOMETHING WHILE BREAK DANCING.>>THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS FOR ME AT THIS AGE.>>BEFORE WE GET TO YOUR PLAYERS OF THE WEEK YOU HAD TO USE A LOT OF GUYS IN PARTICULAR DEEPER DOWN THE DEPTH CHART. A LITTLE BANGS UP GUYS THAT PLAYS A LOT OF SNAPS PLAYED WELL.>>THE PREPARATION TO BE READY WHEN THEIR NUMBER WAS CALLED WAS HUGE. WE PLAYED A LOT OF GUYS THAT DIDN’T GET AS MANY REPSES. PUT THEY WERE READY AND PLAYED HARD.>>NOW YOUR DEFENSIVE PLAYERS OF THE GAME, THE YOU HAVE TO PICK ONE GUY, BECAUSE A LOT GOT IT DONE, AND YOU PICKED UP FOUR FOR US TO LOOK AT.>>WHEN YOU ARE BEATING A TEAM, AND YOU HAVE — YOU KNOW, THAT MUCH CELEBRATING GOING ON, AND YOU CAN’T PINPOINT ONE GUY, BUT I THINK WE COULD HAVE PUT MORE GUYS ON THEM JUST GO WITH THE FOUR AND THEY ALL DID A PHENOMENAL JOB, AND IT WAS JUST FUN TO SEE THEM PRODUCE NOT EVERY INSIDE GUY GETS NUMBERS. HE GOT NUMBERS.>>HE KIT A GREAT JOB DOMINATING THE POINT IF THEY MOVED THE GUARDS OUT TO HELP OUT ON THE ENDS AND LEFT THE ONE ON ONE WE WOULD HAVE A MATCH UP. LORENZO AS WELL AND OTHER GUYS PLAYING THERE, I MEAN HE WAS A BEAST. IT IS HARD TO STOP A MAN THAT BIG.>>Greg: DEFENSIVE PLAYERS OF THE WEEK. SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK, WE WILL HAVE YOU CHAT ABOUT BECAUSE HE IS A PLAYER THAT YOU SEE ON DEFENSE, AND COACH ED LAMB GAVE US MAX TOOLLY FOR SPECIAL TEAMS.>>YEAH, MAX COMES IN, CARE AS LOT ABOUT SPECIAL TEAMS CARE AS THE LO ABOUT THAT PHASE OF THE GAME. AND TAKES PRIDE IN IT. HE WENT DOWN AND HAD AING THATLE AND JUST PLAYS PHYSICAL THE WHOLE TIME THAT HE WAS ON THERE, AND WE APPRECIATE ALL THOSE BOYS. THESE KIDS ARE DIFFERENT, A LOT OF TIMES A LOT OF DIFFERENT TEAMS YOU HAVE PLAYS THAT MAY NOT TAKE AS MUCH PRIDE IN SPECIAL TEAMS WANT TO SAVE THEMSELVES FOR OFFENSE OR DEFENSE, BUT WE HAVE I DOS THAT ARE JUST CHOMPING AT THE BIT TO GET ON EVERY TEAM. IT IS A SPECIAL GROUP. WE HAVE PLAYERS THAT ARE LIKE THAT. AND ALWAYS GOING TO PLAY GOOD SPECIAL TEAMS WHEN YOU HAVE GOES THAT TAKE PRIDE IN IT.>>ONE OF YOUR DEFENSIVE PLAYERS OF THE GAME HAS MADE A NAME AS WELL. AND THERE’S AN AWARD OUT THERE THAT GOES TO COLLEGE FOOTBALL MOST VERSATILE PLAYER EVERY YEAR, AND HE GOT ON THE HONOR ROLE FOR WEEK THREE. BECAUSE HE WAS — HE WAS WRACKING UP TACKLES. HE HAD THE GAME SEALING AND HE WAS SCORING A TOUCH DOWN AS A BACK UP AS WELL.>>THAT’S RIGHT. AND HE IS A GUY THAT WE ARE TRYING TO TAKE A COUPLE OF P THATS OFF OF HIM ON DEFENSE. HE WILL GET UPSET ABOUT IT. HE SAYS YOU CAN’T TAKE ME OFF OF SPECIAL TEAMS YOU CAN’T TAKE ME OFF THIS ONE. I NEED TO BE ON THIS ONE. SO HE TAKES PRIDE AS WELL. BUT I THINK THE TEAM IN GENERAL, THEIR BELIEF IN KILANI, AND THE SYSTEM, AND JUST PLAYING IS SHOWING UP IN THE WAY THEY PLAY.>>HOW GOOD DOES IT FEEL TO BE 2-1.>>IT FEELS PRETTY GOOD. FEELS PRETTY GOOD. WE ARE EXCITED. WHERE WE ARE AT, THERE ARE MISTAKES THAT WE HAVE TO CONTINUE TO WORK ON, AND BUILD, BUT WE HAVE ANOTHER TOUGH OPPONENT COMING IN THIS WEEK THAT WE HAVE TO BE READY FOR. SO CELEBRATING FOR US, IS MOVING ON.>>WE HAVE TO BE READY.>>WE ARE GEARED UP TO STOP ANOTHER GREAT OFFENSE THAT’S COMING IN. I THINK U.W.’S OFFENSE IS ONE OF THE BETTER ONES WE HAVE FACED. AND THEY ARE ALWAYS TOUGH TO PLAN FOR, PERSONNEL WISE, WE HAVE SOME GOOD PLAYERS ON THAT SIDE, AND THEY PLAY AND SCORE A LOT OF POINTS.>>MORE WASHINGTON TALK COMING UP, A REMIND THEIR DINNER AFTER THE GAME, INCLUDES SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY. J.C.W.S, QUALITY AND A LOT OF IT, IN LEHI, AMERICAN FORK, PROVO, SOUTH JORDAN AND NOW OPENING IN HERMAN. COMING UP SATURDAY IT IS. NATIONALLY RANKED WASHINGTON, BYU RADIO COVERAGE BEGINS WITH COUGAR PREGAME LIVE. THE KICK AT 3:30 EASTERN. THERE ON BYU RADIO. COMING UP NEXT, YOUR QUESTIONS FOR DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR. AND A PREVIEW OF BYU’S GAME AGAINST THE HUSKIES. YOU ARE IN THE “COORDINATOR’S CORNER” BROUGHT TO YOU BY J.C.>>YOU ARE IN THE “COORDINATOR’S CORNER.” FINAL SEGMENT NOW WITH DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR AS BYU GETS SET TO WELCOME IN TWENTY-FIRST AND 20 SECOND RANKED WASHINGTON. COACH E, YOU ALLUDED TO A LITTLE BIT, BUT REALLY GOOD AND BALANCED OFFENSE. SOLID RUN GAME, TREMENDOUS QUARTERBACK. GOOD BALL SECURITY IN THE MARGIN. WORTHY OF THE RANKING TOOK A TOUGH LOSS. THEY HAVE GOD PLAYERS. EXECUTING AT A HIGH LEVEL. TO US THEY LOOK REALLY IN SINK SO WE HAVE TO HAVE A GOOD GAME PLAN AND EXECUTE IT.>>THERE ARE MANY TO LOOK AT, BUT YOU CAN TAKE A LOOK AT QUARTERBACK, RUNNING BACK AHMED, AND WIDE RECEIVER FULLER AS THE TOP GUYS IN MAYBE EACH SPOT AND THAT’S A LOT OF DANGER.>>A LOT OF DANGER. A TIGHT END THAT CAN CATCH THAT IS A GOOD PLAYER, AND WE HAVE ANOTHER TIGHT END THAT HAS DONE A GOOD JOB WHEN WE PLAYED THEM BLOCKING. SO THEY HAVE SOME WEAPONS AND WE HAVE TO PUT A GAME PLAN TOGETHER FOR THEM. AND HAVE TO EXECUTE.>>LAST YEAR YOU WENT UP TO SEATTLE THEY GOT AFTER YOU PRETTY GOOD.>>YOU KNOW, LAST YEAR, WE ALL DEFENSIVELY WE ALL KEEP A JOURNAL AS FAR AS WHAT THE GAME PLAN WAS GOING IN, WHAT WE WOULD HAVE DONE DIFFERENTLY. IN HINDSIGHT AND THE BIGGEST THING LAST YEAR WAS WE SHOULD HAVE JUST LET THE PLAYERS PLAY. WE PUT OUR GAME PLAN TOGETHER, AND NOT GET SO MUCH INTO THE HE IS DOING THIS, WE NEED TO DO THAT WE NEED TO PROTECT THE PLAYERS BY DOING THIS SCHEME, AND LET THE PLAYERS PLAY, AND SO I THOUGHT THAT LAST YEAR, I STRIKE TO TAKE IT MORE ON US AS COACHES THAT WE HAVE TO PUT MORE BELIEVE IN THE PLAYERS AND LET THEM DO THEIR DEAL AND MOW MOVING FORWARD. LAST YEAR WE LOST DIANNE, ZANE, GOING IN, WE MOVED OVER, MATT HALLE FROM THE OFFENSIVE SIDE, JUST FOR THAT WEEK, SO THERE’S A LOT OF UNCERTAINTY ON OUR SIDE OF IT. WE JUST FEEL LIKE WE NEED TO GO IN MORE CONFIDENTLY, JUST TO PLAY REALLY GOOD OFFENSE.>>SO ON THAT WORD, HOW MUCH DOES THE FACT THAT YOU BEAT BACK TO BACK FIVE TEAMS PLAYS INTO THIS WEEK.>>IT IS — IT ADD AS LOT TO OUR CONFIDENCE, STYES WHEN YOU START TO HIT ADVERSITY YOU MAKE A LITTLE BIT OF DOUBT COMES IN, BUT BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT IT CAME ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE WIRE BOTH TIMES. I THINK IT WAS GOOD FOR THE CONFIDENCE OF THE TEAM TO KNOW THAT WE HAVE TO CONTINUE TO FIGHT. AND JUST PUSH TO THE END. AND WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS AT THE END. THOSE KIND OF GAMES REALLY HELP YOU WITH YOUR CONFIDENCE, AND YOUR BELIEVE. WHERE THINGS START TO GO DOWNHILL, AND THEN ENDS UP BEING A BLOW OUT, YOU KNOW, YOU HIT ADVERSITY AND THERE’S THAT THOUGHT LIKE ARE WE GOING THROUGH THIS AGAIN, OR WILL WE FIGHT. AND RIGHT NOW THE TEAM IS — THEIR BELIEF LEVEL IN KILANI, THEIR BELIEF IN THEMSELVES, THEIR BELIEF IN EACH OTHER, THE OFFENSE BELIEVING IN THE DEFENSE, THE DEFENSE BELIEVING IN THE OFFENSE. AND THE WHOLE TEAM SPECIAL TEAMS AND IT IS REALLY HIGH RIGHT NOW. SO WE HAVE TO CONTINUE TO RIDE THAT WAVE. AND PRACTICE THAT WAY, AND GET THEM PREPARE FOR THE NEXT GAME.>>Greg: SO YOU ARE INTO U.W. GAME PREP RIGHT NOW. AND EVEN THOUGH U.S.C. IN THE REAR VIEW, IT IS FRESH. WHERE DOES U.W. — WHERE ARE THEY DIFFERENT IN TERMS OF DEFENDING THE TEAM?>>SKIMMATICALLY THEY ARE DIFFERENT. WHEN YOU ARE FACING A TEAM I GUESS THE CHALLENGE FOR US, AND EVERYBODY SAW IT ON THE FILM WE ARE DOWN HERE TO RUN IT. AND WE ARE CHANGING THIS EMTO STOP THE RUN, AND I GUESS THE CHALLENGE TO U.S.C. WAS ARE YOU WILLING TO STICK TO THE RUN, OR ARE YOU GOING TO BAND AID AND GO BACK TO WHAT YOU THINK YOU NEED TO BE DOING. AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT WE FELT LIKE WE NEEDED TO CHALLENGE THEM TO. AND IT WAS THE BATTLE OF WILLS. WE WILL STICK TO THIS. AND WE FEEL LIKE YOU AREN’T GOING TO STICK TO RUNNING THE BALL. BUT THAT’S U.W., IF WE GIVE THEM THAT, THEY WILL RUN THE BALL AND STICK TO IT. AND THEY BELIEVE IN RUNNING IT. AND THEY BELIEVE IN BEING BALANCED AND TAKING THE SHOTS. SO WE HAVE TO TAKE A DIFFERENT PLAN, AND GETTING READY FOR THE SHOTS, AND THE BIG PLAY MAKERS, SO WE HAVE TO WITH MORE BALANCED IN OUR APPROACH THIS WEEK. GETTING READY FOR THEM. BUT IT IS — THEY HAVE SHOWN THAT THEY CAN DO A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT THINGS AND THEY CAN MAKE A LOT OF BIG PLAYS IN THE RUN AND THE PASS. SO WE HAVE TO BE READY FOR IT.>>FROM SHON NIELSEN SAYS COACH WHAT DEFENSIVE CHANGES OR ADJUSTMENTS WERE MADE TO HELP CREATE SATURDAY’S TAKE AWAYS OR WERE THEY DOWN TO INDIVIDUALLY GREAT REACTIONS AND PLAYS.>>A LITTLE BIT OF BOTH. I THOUGHT — PLAYERS JUST PLAYED WELL, AND REACTED WELL, AND TECHNICALLY WERE A LOT BETTER THAN THEY HAD BEEN. WE THREW A COUPLE OF WRINKLE INS THERE TO CHANGE THINGS UP, AND MAYBE MAKE IT HARDER FOR THEM TO RUN. BUT A COUPLE OF CHANGES MOSTLY IT WAS JUST THE PLAYERS MAKING PLAYS.>>Greg: GOOD STUFF THIS WEEK. WE WILL GIVE YOU A “COORDINATOR’S CORNER” BYE-WEEK NEXT WEEK, AND SEE YOU IN A COUPLE.>>ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU.>>Greg: ALL RIGHT, THAT IS COACH LLAISA TUIAKI. BYU-TV WILL GET YOU SET FOR BYU AND WASHINGTON THIS SATURDAY AT LAVELL EDWARD STADIUM. WATCH COUNT DOWN TO KICK OFF AT 2:30 EASTERN. IT IS ALSO ON BOUGH RADIO, AND BYU-TV IS BACK ON THE AIR FOR POST GAME COVERAGE RIGHT AFTER THE FINAL WHISTLE. COMING UP NEXT, OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR JEFF GRIMES JOINING US, WE ARE LIVE FROM STUDIO C. ON BYU-TV. BACK WITH MORE RIGHT AFTER>>QUARTERBACK DRAW, FROZEN 50, 10. A TOUCH DOWN! INTO THE END ZONE IT GOES AND THE “COORDINATOR’S CORNER” TAKE THE LEAD.>>YOU ARE IN THE “COORDINATOR’S CORNER” BROUGHT TO YOU BY J.C.W. AND THAT WAS ZACH WILSON SCORING ON A Q.B. DRAW TO GIVE BYU A LATE LEAD ON SATURDAY. THE GAME WOULD GO TO OVERTIME, WHERE BYU WOULD WIN IT 30-27. BACK TO BACK OVERTIME VICTORY WHOSE ARE NOW 2-1 ON THE SEASON. WITH THAT WE SAY HELLO AGAIN TO JEFF GRIMES. CONGRATS ON A HUGE WIN IN FRONT OF A HUGE CROWD. MOST OF WHICH ENDED UP ON THE FIELD.>>IT DID. IT WAS FUN TO WATCH.>>YOU ARE UPSTAIRS YOU DON’T GET TO JOIN THE CELEBRATION FOR A LITTLE BIT. ARE THEY STILL GOING GOOD?>>YEAH, IT WAS. IT TOOK ME A BIT TO GET THROUGH THE CROWD, I SAT THERE IT TAKES ME A FEW MINUTES TO DECOMPRESS AFTER A GAME OF THAT MAGNITUDE. BUT I JUST WATCHED IT FOR A FEW MINUTES AND ENJOYS WATCHING THE PEOPLE JUST SPILL OVER-THE-EDGES OF THE STADIUM ON TO THE FIELD. IT WAS A REALLY COOL SCENE.>>THEN THEY GOT BACKED OFF AND GOT TO COME ON AGAIN, DID YOU THINK IT WAS A GOOD PICK WHEN YOU SAW IT?>>HONESTLY, I DIDN’T SEE IT. I’M THINKING ABOUT THE NEXT TIME ALL RIGHT.>>RIGHT.>>PEOPLE ASK ME WHAT ABOUT THE PLAY, AND I KNOW DEFENSE PLAYED GOOD & PLAYS TIL THE END, AND I DIDN’T SEE IT UNTIL LATER, I SAW THE REPLAY. IS YOUR NEXT SERIES IS ABOUT THE BEND, WHAT DID YOU THINK HAD TO HAPPEN FOR THINGS TO TO GO THE WAY YOU WANTS THEM TO WELL, OBVIOUSLY U.S.C. IS A VERY TALENTS TEAM. AND I FELT LIKE WE HAD TO MATCH THEIR PLAY MAKERS WITH PLAYS OF OUR OWN. WHICH WE DID. I FELT WE HAD TO CONTROL THE THINGS THAT WE CAN CONTROL. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE PREACHED ALL SEASON IS THE THINGS THAT WE CAN IMAGINE. WE HAVE TO BE RELIABLE. SO NOT TURNING THE FOOTBALL OVER, ALTHOUGH WE WERE CLOSE ON A FEW, A COUPLE OF TIP BALLS. NOT TURNING IT OVER AND HAVING PRESNAP PENALTIES I THINK HELPED US.>>IN OUR LAST VISIT WE TALKS ABOUT HOW NOTHING ELSE MATTERS MORE THAN TURNOVER MARGIN. SINCE THEN YOU HAVE HAD ZERO OFFENSIVE TURNOVERS AND HUGE TAKE AWAYS.>>YEAH, IT’S BEEN HUGE. IT’S BEEN THE DIFFERENCE IN THE TWO GAMES. GIVING US THE BALL. HONESTLY WE DO AN EVEN BETTER JOB OF GETTING TOUCH DOWNS WHEN THAT HAPPENS.>>YOU HAVE GOTTEN OF THE FOUR, TWO TOUCH DOWN TWO FIELD GOALS IT FEELS LIKE, AND THEN THE INTERCEPTION THAT ENDED IN OVERTIME.>>.>>Greg: RIGHT AFTER TYSON WAS RULED JUST SHY OF THE GOAL LINE, AT 10-ALL YOU DROVE A TOUCH DOWN FROM ZACK. YEAH THAT WAS A PLAY WE FELT CONFIDENT IN IN THAT SITUATIONS, WE FELT CONFIDENT THEY WERE GOING TO PLAY MAN, AND FELT LIKE HE COULD WIN IN THAT MATCH UP AND HE DID. ALTHOUGH NOT BY A LARGE MARGIN, AND CLEARED A LITTLE SEPARATION, AND IT WAS A GREAT THROW, AND A GREAT CATCH, AND THE GUY OF COS HIM PRETTY WELL, BUT IT WAS AN EVEN BETTER THROW AND CATCH.>>HE WAS YOUR MOST POPULAR THIRD DOWN TARGET. YOU MENTIONED THAT CAME ON A THIRD AND MEDIUM. WHETHER IT WAS — WE WERE TALKING ABOUT SOME MAYBE UNDERSTATED DEFENDERS. ZACK IS SOMEBODY THAT CAME IN HERE AS A WALK ON, EARNED A SCHOLARSHIP AND IS A PROVEN ROUT RUNNER FOR YOU.>>HE IS A GREAT PLAYER. HE IS. HE IS UNDERVALUED AND A LOT OF PEOPLE JUST SEE HIS STATURE AND DON’T THINK OF HIM AS A BIG PLAY TYPE RECEIVER. BUT I THINK HE IS. AND HE IS REALLY REALLY DEVELOPED.>>Greg: BYU DID LEAD AFTER ONE QUARTER. BYU BY THE WAY, 8-3 NOW IN LEADING AFTER THAT FIRST QUARTER. A TIE GAME AT HALF TIME, HOW WAS YOUR MOOD AT THE BREAK?>>I WAS HONESTLY REALLY EXCITED ABOUT WHERE WE WERE AT THAT THAT POINT. FELT LIKE WE COULD HAVE IT, AND I FELT LIKE WE HAD SOME THINGS THAT WE STILL HAD IN STORE THAT WE HASN’T USED IN THE SECOND HALF, SO WE TALKED ABOUT THAT WITH THE GUYS AT HALF TIME. AND I THINK THEY WERE EXCITED TO GO BACK TO PLAY.>>WE FELT LIKE THAT WOULD BE THERE, A TEAM THAT PLAYED A LOT OF MAN COVERAGE. TYPICALLY THERE’S NOBODY COVERING THE QUARTERBACK. AND SO WE JUST — ZACK IS A GREAT ATHLETE. HE CAN DO A LOT OF THINGS BUT SO IS JARED. AND SO WE WANT TO CONTINUE TO TRY TO BE CREATIVE IN HOW WE USE THEM.>>THERE WAS NO SCORING IN THE THIRD QUARTER ON SATURDAY, A QUARTER THAT SAW BYU ON A FOURTH DOWN LATE IN THE THIRD OF A TIE GAME. WHAT WENT INTO THE DISCUSSION WHETHER TO KICK OR GO FOR AND IT DID THE EARLIER SUCCESS FACTOR IN?>>YES, THAT’S THAT’S ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT IS A STAFF DECISION. IT COMES DOWN TO KILANI’S DECISION, BUT WE FELT CONFIDENT IN IT. THAT’S SOMETHING THAT COACH LAMB OVERSEES THAT UPPLAY. AND DOES A GREAT JOB WITH IT. AND IT WAS CLOSE AND CAME DOWN TO A CLOSE MEASUREMENT AND DIDN’T GET IN.>>IT WENT TO REVIEW, I THOUGHT WHEN I LOOK AT THE REPLAYS I COULDN’T GET CLEAR ENOUGH VIEW AND THEY ENDED UP CALLING IT SHORT WE STARTED PLAYING WITH MORE TEMPO FOR A TEAM LIKE THEM COMING FROM SEA LEVEL IT WAS A WARM DAY AND WE COULD WEAR ON THEM A LITTLE BIT.>>WHAT IS YOUR TRIGGER FOR TEMPO. WHAT DOES IT TELL YOU WHEN IT IS TIME TO GO.>>SOMETIMES IT IS WHAT I SEE, DURING THE WEEK, IN FILM HOW QUICKLY A DEFENSE GET AS LINE AND HOW SOUND THEY ARE, SOMETIMES IT IS JUST THE FEEL IN THE GAME, IF THEY DON’T GET LINED UP.>>THERE WAS A POINT IN IT WHETHER YOU ARE TEMPOING AND THERE WAS LIKE A MYSTERY BREAK THAT WAS NOT REALLY CALLED BY ANYBODY, AND IT GAVE U.S.C. A CHANCE TO CATCH THEIR BREATH. I NEVER REALLY FIGURES OUT WHAT WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT.>>SOMETIMES IF THE BALL IS OUT OF BOUNDS ON OUR SIDELINE OR CLOSE TO IT EVEN IF WE DON’T SUP THE REFS HOLD IT JUST TO GIVE THEM A FAIR SHOT TO GET THEIR SIGNAL. I THINK THAT HAPPENED A TIME OR TWO, AND THERE WAS ONCE WE TOOK A BREAK TO BRING IN A SPECIFIC GROUP.>>THE DRIVE THAT GAVE YOU BACK THE LEAD TOOK ONLY THREE PLAYERS AND TWO OF THE THREE SHOWS SHOWCASED YOUR STARTING QUARTERBACK. IT WAS TREMENDOUS. POOR PROTECTION, BUT IT IS NICE TO HAVE A GUY THAT CAN MAKE A PLAY WHEN THINGS BREAK DOWN. GUNNER IS THE KIND OF GUY THAT I THINK YOU THROW IT UP TO HIM HE WILL COME DOWN WITH IT. I THOUGHT ZACK DID A GREAT JOB OF BUYING SOME TIME, AND THEN — A GREAT JOB BY GUNNER GOING UP AND CATCHING THE BALL. A GREAT CONCENTRATION. WHERE THAT BALL HUNG UP THERE FOR A BIT.>>HE GOT HIT GOOD. BUT HELD ON TO IT. MICAH HAD ONE OVER THE MIDDLE. ON THE VERTICAL SEEM, AND CAME DOWN WITH THE BALL. SO THE TOUGHNESS OF OUR RECEIVERS IS SHOWING UP.>>AND THEN TOUGHNESS OF YOUR QUARTERBACK ON THE QUARTERBACK DRAW FROM 16 YARDS THE FOR SCORE.>>YEAH, IT WAS A NICE JOB SETTING IT UP. I THOUGHT HE LOOKED AS IF HE WAS GOING TO THROW IT AND THEN THE TIMING WAS JIG ROOM AND THE LINE BLOCKED AS WELL AND THEN HE DID A NICE JOB ACCELERATING, AND SPLITTING A COUPLE OF DEFENDERS THERE AT THE END.>>THE UMPIRE IS IN GOOD POSITION FOR A TACKLE THERE, AND HE DOES A GOOD JOB TO AVOID HIM. AND THAT’S HOW BYU TOOK THE LEAD. THEIR GUY HIT THE 52 QUARTERS YARDER.>>ACTUALLY, I DID SEE THAT ONE I WAS GETTING MY FOUR MINUTE CALL READY.>>WHEN WE GO TO OVERTIME, WHEN WE COME BACK, COACH GRIMES WILL TALK ABOUT THAT SECOND CONSECUTIVE CELEBRATION. WE RECOGNIZE HIS OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK. THIS IS THE “COORDINATOR’S CORNER” ON BYU TV. BROUGHT TO YOU BY J.C.W.S, BACK WITH MORE AFTER THIS.>>”COORDINATOR’S CORNER” IS BROUGHT TO YOU IN PART BY J.C.W. THE BURGER BOYS. BAILEY’S MOVING AND STORAGE. MORE THAN JUST A MOVE. SIEGFRIED AND JENSEN. SERVING UTAH FAMILIES FOR OVER 25 YEARS.>>Greg: WE CONTINUE ON THE “COORDINATOR’S CORNER” WITH OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR JEFF GRIMES. REP CAKING THE OVERTIME WIN OVER U.S.C. AND COACH GRIMES, AS MUCH FUN AS YOU HAD WINNING IN KNOXVILLE, NOTHING BEAT AS HOME STADIUM AND HOME LOCKER ROOM CELEBRATION.>>IT WAS A LOT OF FUN. AFTER IT HAPPENED. I WASN’T ENJOYING IT UNTIL WE HAD THE PICK, THEN IT WAS FUN.>>Greg: COACH TOLD ME IN THE FIRST STATEMENT HE STAYS OUT OF THE DANCE CIRCLE WHERE ARE YOU.>>ON THE FRINGE. YEAH, JUST CLOSE ENOUGH TO SAY I WAS INVOLVED BUT NOT SO CLOSE THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE ACTUALLY SEE MY DANCE MOVES.>>Greg: NUMBERS OF NOTE, ZERO OFFENSIVE THREE AND OUTS.>>YEAH, I DIDN’T KNOW THAT UNTIL THIS MORNING. BUT YEAH THAT’S A HECK OF A DEAL.>>BIG PLAYS ANYTHING GAINING 1D BIG PLAYS ON MORE THAN 20% OF YOUR SNAPS.>>YEAH, I THINK OUR PLAYERS HAVE CONTINUES TO RECOGNIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF MAKING BIG PLAYS AND WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO THAT. AT HIGHER RATE THIS ENTIRE SEASON, THAN WE DID LAST YEAR. SO IT’S BEEN A BIG PART OF OUR SUCCESS.>>SEVEN OF 16 ON THIRD DOWNS. AND PLUS SIX YARDS AN AVERAGE MARGIN, BYU HAS NOW WON 12 STRAIGHT. THE GOOD THING ABOUT THAT IS IT ISN’T JUST ABOFFENSIVE STAT, IT IS ALSO A DEFENSIVE STAT IT IS THE ULTIMATE STAT.>>I FEEL LIKE THAT’S HOW WE WON THIS GAME, WE WON IT AS A TEAM, AND IT SPEAKS TO THE SCULPTURE OF OUR TEAM FOR WHAT KILANI HAS CREATED AND WHAT THE PLAYERS HAVE DONE. AS EVERYBODY HAS BOUT IN TO DOING THEIR PART. AND THAT’S HOW YOU WIN THE KIND OF GAMES WE HAVE WON.>>BYU IS ON A NINE WINNING STREAK AS WELL. A GOOD NUMBER TO GET TO WHEN YOU GOT THAT SATURDAY. SIX CONSECUTIVE WINS AND KILANI’S TEAMS ARE NOW 13-4 WHEN POSITIVE, IN THE TURNOVER MARGIN IT IS GREAT TO BE TURNOVER FREE, AND JUST POSITIVE IS ENOUGH FOR YOU.>>YEAH, I THINK SO, AND AGAIN, THAT’S A TEAM THING. WHEN OUR DEFENSE GETS ONE IT GIVES US MOMENTUM. THEY SEEM TO PLAYRD HAAR, AND WE FEED OFF OF EACH OTHER. 100-YARDS IS JUST A NUMBER, BUT THAT SAID, KILANI’S TEAMS ARE NOW UNDEFEATED WHEN THEY GET TO 100 RUSH YARDS OR MORE. AND WHEN THAT NUMBER IS REACHED AND IT IS JUST A NUMBER. BUT IT DOES SPEAK TO HOW WELL YOU ARE PLAYING THAT DAY. I HAVE ALWAYS BELIEVES THERE YOU HAVE TO HAVE BALANCE. SOME DAYS WHERE YOU ARE RUNNING MORE, AND SOME DAYS WHERE YOU WILL PASS IT MORE SO WE HAVE TO HAVE BALANCE. I THINK IT ALLOWS US TO THROW IT.>>YOU HAD BEEN 60 OR UNDER IN THREE STRAIGHT GOING BACK TO YOUR BOWL GAME, HE SNAPPED 74, WHICH IS A GOOD NUMBER IS AND THE BALANCE IS 30 ROUGHLY SPEAKING. AND GAMES WILL DIFFER, DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA OF WHERE YOU WANT TO BE. BECAUSE I BRING BACK THE BOWL GAME. 52 PLAYS BUT THEY ARE ALL. AING NINE OR 10. YEAH, AND LIKE YOU SAID, THE ONE SCORING DRIVE WAS THREE, SO IT IS HARD TO SAY. BUT I’D RATHER SNAP AT MORE PLAYS THAN FEWER AND THAT WAS A BIG POINT OF EMPHASIS. WAS TO GET IT SNAPPED FASTER, THAT WAS A BIG PART OF ESTABLISHING.>>ENDING UP WITH 74 ON THE DAY. THE OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK.>>I THOUGHT TYSON HAD A GOOD GAME. HE PLAYS HARD, EVEN ON CHALLENGING RUNS. I THOUGHT HE WAS PRODUCTIVE. MADE THE RIGHT CUTS. RAN PHYSICAL. BLOCKED AS WELL. AND I THOUGHT HE HAD A REALLY GOOD GAME.>>117-YARDS FROM SCRIMMAGE, WHEN YOU INCLUDE HIS RECEPTION YARDS AS WELL. YOU SEEM HIM WITH 99 RUSHING YARDS THAT GAME WILL COME. AND THERE WILL BE MORE OF THEM.>>YEAH. WITHOUT QUESTION. AND HE IS A GUY THAT I THINK IS STILL — HE IS STILL NEW TO OUR SYSTEM, NEW TO OUR TEAM, AND SO I THINK HE IS STILL GROWING AND WILL ONLY GET BETTER.>>HAS HE GIVEN YOU WHAT YOU HOPED YOU WOULD GET?>>YEAH, HE HAS. AND I THINK HE IS — EVEN THOUGH HE IS AN EXPERIENCED PLAYER, HE IS A NEW PLAYER WITH US. FIVE FLU PLAYER WITHIN OUR SYSTEM, SO HE IS STILL GROWING AND DEVELOPING. AND WE WILL SEE MORE FROM HIM.>>HE HAS, AND YOU KNOW HONESTLY, I AM PLEASED WITH HIM, ALL THREE OF OUR RUNNING BACKS. AND DONE A NICE JOB AS WELL, SO I AM PLEASED WITH IT.>>ALL RIGHT, TIME FOR A BRIEF BREAK, AS WE TAKE A TIME OUT WE REMIND YOU THAT FOR YOUR DAILY COUGAR SPORTS PLAY-BY-PLAY, TUNE IN WEEKDAYS AT NOON EASTERN TIME. COMING UP, COACH GRIMES LOOKS AHEAD TO SATURDAY AS MATINEE WITH THE HUSKIES AND TAKES QUESTIONS FROM COUGAR NATION. YOU ARE IN THE “COORDINATOR’S CORNER” BROUGHT TO YOU BY J.C.W.>>THREW FOR THREE. CAREER LONG OF 43 AND THEY TAKE THE LEAD.>>THAT WAS THE GAME WINNING FIELD GOAL. I DIDN’T SOUND VERY EXCITED. THERE WAS STUFF TO HAPPEN STILL. THAT THING TO HAPPEN WAS THE PICK. WE ALREADY ESTABLISHED THAT YOU ARE NOT FOCUSED ON DYING AT THAT TIME, AND JUST THE FOLKS THAT ARE REMINDED WHEN THE DEFENSE IS ON THE FIELD, YOUR MOST IS IN THE PLAY SHEET RIGHT?>>YEAH, WE ARE HAVING DISCUSSIONS, I AM TALKING WITH THE OTHER COACHES, PLAYERS AND MAKING ADJUSTMENTS. TALKING THROUGH THE SERIES.>>WE HEARD ON THE CALL THERE, LOW SNAP. HAYDEN DID A NICE JOB TO PULL THAT THING UP.>>HAYDEN HAS DONE A GREAT JOB. AND HE IS A GOD PLAYER, AND A GREAT KID. WE WILL SEE MORE OF HIM IN THE YEARS TO COME.>>YOUR SECOND RANKED OPPONENT COMING IN THIS WEEKEND. THEY SHUT BYU OUT FOR ALMOST THE ENTIRE GAME. THEY WERE DIFFERENT PERSONNEL BUT SAME D.C.>>REALLY WELL COACHED TEAM. A LOT OF RESPECT FOR COACH PETERSON AND THAT WHOLE STAFF. I KNOW ANOMER OF THOSE GUYS. THEY HAVE A LOT OF TALENT. AND THEY ARE VERY WELL COACHED. WILL IT BE A GREAT CHALLENGE FOR US.>>Greg: AND DOES ANYTHING THAT HAPPEN LAST YEAR PLAY INTO THIS YEAR IN TERMS OF WHAT HAPPENED UP IN SEATTLE?>>I DON’T THINK SO. I THINK IT IS A NEW YEAR, AND A NEW TEAM, AND THEY HAVE NEW PLAYERED AND WE HAVE NEW PLAYERS. WE ARE A DIFFERENT OFFENSE CERTAINLY THAN WHEN WE PLAYED THEM. SO YOU KNOW, I THINK HIT BE A GREAT MATCH UP.>>Greg: YOU HAVE CONFIDENCE TOO, AND THAT’S NOT SMALL THING. YOU HAVE GO BIG WINS AND TWO BACK TO BACK WEEKS THAT HAVE YOU FEELING GOOD.>>YEAH, CONFIDENCE AND MOMENTUM IN THE GAME. IS PARAMOUNT TO SUCCESS.>>LET’S GO TO SOCIAL MEDIA FOR QUESTIONS FROM COACH GRIMES, JUSTIN SAYING WHAT HAVE YOU NOTICED WITH THE WIDE RECEIVERS THAT LEADS TO THEM MAKING SO MANY GOOD CATCHES. THEY ARE PLAYING GREAT AND MAKING SPECTACULAR PLAYS. AND I WILL JUST SAWED A REALLY LOW DROP RATE RIGHT NOW.>>YEAH, NO QUESTION. GO BACK TO SPRING BALL. I SAID TO A COUPLE OF PEOPLE THAT THEY WERE THE POSITION GROUP THAT I WAS MOST PLEASED WITH COMING OUT OF SPRING BALL. THEY CONTINUE TO WORK HARD THIS SUMMER. I THINK THEY DO A TREMENDOUS JOB COACHING THEM. THEY HOLD HIGH EXPECTATIONS FOR THEMSELVES AND THEY DO A LOT OF THING THAT NOBODIES SEES. THEY RUN FULL SPEED AND CARRY OUT THEIR FAKE, AND GIVE SOMEBODY ELSE A CHANCE TO MAKE A PLAY. THEY BLOCK. DOWN FIELD AND MAKE PLAYS WHEN YOU THROW IT TO THEM. AND THE FACT THAT THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENT GUY WHOSE ARE MAKING PLAYS IS A CREDIT TO THE GROUP.>>Greg: YOU HAVE A CORE GROUP OF FIVE WIDE OUTS RIGHT NOW. THAT ARIC MAAING ALL YOUR PLAYS A T THAT POSITION. THE 6TH MIGHT BE AT LEAST FROM CAMP HILL IS HE GOING TO SEE ACTION THIS YEAR FOR YOU?>>YET TO BE SEEN.>>Greg: THE BUT GOO I WHOSE ARE PLAYING THEY HAVE BEEN SOLID IN EVERY WAY. YEAH, REALLY PLEASED WITH ALL FIVE OF THEM.>>AND THEN WE SEE A LITTLE MORE THIS PAST WEEK AS WELL. A NICE GRAB.>>YEAH.>>Greg: A HURDLE ON THE SIDELINE AS WELL.>>IT WAS GREAT TO GET HIM BACK, AND HE PLAYED A FEW PLAYS AGAINST TENNESSEE BUT WASN’T QUITE FULL SPEED YET. AND HONESTLY I WASN’T SURE IF HE WAS FULL SPEED OR NOT. AND WE WILL HAVE AN EVEN LARGER OPPORTUNITY TO KEEP HIM MOVING FORWARD.>>Greg: HOPEFULLY THAT HURDLE IS A SIGN HE CAN FEELING GOOD. KIE RAH COMES IN ON THE SCRUM FORMATION, I KNOW THAT COMB LAMB THAT’S HIS BABY, THE SCRUM. THERE ANYWAY HE CAN END UP WITH THE BALL IN HIS HANDS.>>THERE’S ALWAYS A POSSIBILITY FOR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. THIS IS AMERICA. WE DO IT RIGHT.>>Greg: THAT WOULD BE FUN TO SEE. CHRIS ON TWISTER FOR COACH LAMB, THERE’S SCRUM DOING HIS THING. FOR A SCORE. AND I COULD HAVE DONE A BETTER JOB RECK NICING WHICH NUMBER FIVE WAS IN THE JOB AT THAT POINT. I AM USING TO RUNNING BACK NUMBER FIVE.>>WE HAVE A COUPLE OF GOOD NUMBER 5S ON OFFER TEAM.>>Greg: FROM CHRIS, WHAT’S THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE THE OFFENSE HAS MADE TO START SCORING MOST THE LAST TWO GAMES TO MAYBE YOUR OPENER?>>WELL, WE DIDN’T TURN THE FOOTBALL OVER. AND WHEN YOU MAINTAIN POSSESSION, IT GIVES YOU OPPORTUNITIES TO CONTINUE DRIVES. WE HAVE BEEN A LITTLE BIT MORE CONSIST, A LITTLE BIT MORE RELIABLE. WE HAVEN’T SHOT OURSELF INS THE FOOT AS MUCH. AND EVEN AT TIMES LAST YEAR.>>Greg: I FEEL BAD THAT WE HAVEN’T TALKED ENOUGH ABOUT O LINE ON YOUR APPEARANCES. BUT LET’S MAKE GIVE A STATUS REPORT ON THOSE FRONT FIVE,.>>YEAH, SO SEVEN GUYS HAVE PLAYED THIS YEAR SOME MORE THAN OTHERS. OUR STARTING 5 ARE THE 5 THAT HAVE KIND OF PROVEN TO BE THE BEST AT THIS POINT. WITH KEEFEER, AND HARRIS. ROTATING IN SOME. IN THIS LAST GAME, BRADY CHRISTIANSEN AGAIN PLAYED REALLY GOOD. KEANE KNEW PLAYS HIS BEST GAME. OBVIOUSLY, A MOTIVATIONAL GAME FOR HIM.>>YEAH.>>FROM CALIFORNIA PLAYING PROBABLY AGAINST A BUNCH OF PEOPLE HE KNOWS.
