    Holy crap, if jaw and neck size are any indicator, 2J will be an excellent coach.



    Based on this quote, I'm not sure Atuaia realizes he has been hired to coach football.

    “I’m excited for the chance to help develop young men in a BYU setting, helping them navigate through the great and unique experiences only found at this institution,” Atuaia said.

    Atuaia made a comment about life experience in there too. I think he read Bronco's book and watched multiple interviews with Bronco to prepare for the job interview.

    Mark will always be a favorite of mine. My roommates and I rushed the field in the '96 WAC Championship game (take that Landpoke!), each hoping to bask in Ethan Pochman's glory. Instead I wound up in the grasp of an elated Mark Atuaia who didn't know who to hug.

    Any truth the rumor I'm starting right now that Garrett will be bringing any and all JC talent with him to Provo?

    Atuaia with a JD, an MPA, AND he's married to a member of The Jets?

    Dang. Charmed life, indeed.

    Atuaia and his wife Elizabeth, an accomplished recording artist and lead singer for the 1980s pop group The Jets....

    2J apparently has a Masters in "educational counseling."

    That's kind of the same thing, isn't it? Well, minus the Jets part.

    He's not married to a member of The Jets, but 2J did play Hell Boy in a few movies.

    Heaps can't throw when there's even a slight chance that he might be hit.

    Anae was in hotwater with the powers that be at BYU in 2010 - of course the powers that be at that time were the Heaps family. They didn't take too kindly to Brother Anae. Whenh he didn't let Jakey finish the scoring drive vs Utah in his last gamem but made Jakey take a knee and kick a fieldgoal to win the gam.Jakey supporters were insensed! And then when the FG try was missed as well, the rest of Cougardom was furious with him, Not any supporters for him after the loss to the Utes. and after the dissing of Jakey. Two wrongs blew up in Anae's face and he had to leave by order of the Family Heaps et al, and when the kick was blown, everyone else at BYU wanted him out too.

    So what is Anae's next move with coaches. BYU has 2 coaching positions left to fill (at least how I count). I'm assuming one of those coaches is going to be non-LDS. This late in the game are there any good candidates?

    I saw Coach Weber at Costa Vida today. Somehow I missed the announcement that he was hired by USU. When he sat down I saw that he was wearing a USU jacket. That really did my heart good.

    But Cahoon was let go? I'm scratching my head over that.
    I don't like Congress. In fact, I hate them. I hate everything about them. I hate their House, I hate their Senate, I hate everything.... I think the whole Congress, their Senate and their House, is classless. They threw beer on my family and stuff last year, and they did a whole bunch of nasty things, and I don't respect them, and they deserve to lose.

    Folks, Bronco is calling shots on new coaches with Robert. I am there for support and counsel if needed.
    I have been hearing for more than a week on local media that THe coaching changes have been all TH and RA with Bronco standing on the sidelines. This tweet won't dissuade them.

    This is really hard for me to believe. Sure Bronco had a tough season. Sure he isn't the walk on water guy anymore. However, there is no way he has been deballed.

    Bronco's style and religion/football mantra has won him a lot of brownie points with the people that really count. Napper and I actually discussed this on this very forum back early in his career.

    Of course it won't dissuade them. Their narrative makes for more interesting filler on the supersaturated Utah sports talk radio market.

    I agree, but it's silly for TH to fan the flames (which is all his tweet does).

    I like that TH is interactive and stuff, but I don't think he needs to address that stuff if the fans are flinging shit at him about that.
