    Second, you need to pay more attention to wuap and nikuman. When it comes to BYU athletics I'm simply a heretic on this board.
    Heretic means you are an insider with a faith crisis or similar. Key word insider. You, sir, are a double agent at best. The equivalent would be for me to start off teaching my gospel doctrine class by saying, "hey, did you know Joseph Smith had multiple wives, some of which were teens and others of which were married to other men?" And then explain only that while gleefully watching the members of the class squirm. And maybe distribute copies of Brodie at the door on the way out.

    That is the point at which I become an apostate and not a heretic, a line you crossed with BYU sports - well, I don't know that you've ever been on the other side of it as long as I've known you.

    I guess he could transfer but isn't Mangum already on campus? I thought he had grey-shirted.

    Also, I would think Mangum would be more excited about Anae's offense. If anything, maybe Hill should be a little concerned.

    Blech.

    Cal I get, he's from the coast. Iowa? Kinda random. Plus, their program has been crummy the last few years.

    Watch your mouth.

    If he's a lineman, Iowa's the place to be. Otherwise....

    You're right, though. They freaking love Ferentz and his run-between-the-tackles, better-get-a-lead-because-they don't-have-the-goods-to-come-from-behind offense.

    Oh, horsefeathers. You guys struggle so mightily with BYU's status as the church's school. Just accept it! If that means you also have to accept the heretical nature of my dissent from the widely-held belief that everything that goes on at "the Y," including its athletic endeavors, is imbued with the church's holy and apocalyptic mission, then you can handle that. You are all well-educated, well-informed, and wise beyond your years. I know you can do it.

    Sheesh, I'm not even trying to troll and I am having a blast in this thread.

    On the other side of the coin, some Arizona fans fear that Anae's defection to BYU could send a couple of missionary linemen (maybe one's a linebacker) to BYU.

    I think a guy like Hill can fit in to what Anae wants to do, and run sometimes as well.

    Some tweets from the past hour, from most to least recent:

    Bill Riley ‏@espn700bill
    Questions regarding A-Rod leaving the #Utes. Nothing definite, edge to Wisc. if offered. BYU would surprise me, but Roderick repects Anae
    Kevin Graham ‏@KevinGrahamKFAN
    After compiling all the info my gut tells me Roderick will be going to Wisconsin. More money, bigger program, loyalty to Andersen
    Kevin Graham ‏@KevinGrahamKFAN
    As @gregwrubell's told us source told him, another report saying it looks like Brandon Doman is not coming back to BYU: http://www.footballscoop.com/the-scoop
    Kevin Graham ‏@KevinGrahamKFAN
    This lends back to my sources who told me there has been discussions between BYU and Utah WR coach Aaron Roderick about QB coaching job





    Jay Drew ‏@drewjay
    As far as Brandon Doman's future at BYU, I'm hearing the same thing as this website, although nothing is definite yet. http://www.footballscoop.com/the-scoop

    In light of A-Rod's level of success at Utah (example: the performance of our WRs last season) do you guys really want him?

    On the contrary, I am still on the front end of the learning curve. I am not too proud to learn from young fellers like you.

    It wouldn't surprise me to see Roderick leave the U. I'm sure he must have a decent relationship with KW to stick around, but the guy has had his chain yanked back and forth more than LA Ute in a Mitt Romney thread.

    He's headed to UW to be WR coach. Then is convinced to stay at Utah as OC. Then get's made co-OC and at some point is demoted to learn under the tutelage of Chow. Then when Chow leaves and the U needs a new OC - they don't even consider him and jump on the 25 year-old unproven graduate assistant who only has 1 year of coaching experience.

    If he's content being a WR coach for the rest of his career, then Utah might be a great place for him. If he ever stops to think about whether or not he wants to have some upward mobility - I think he would have to consider leaving Utah. Even if it seemed like a lateral move and/or didn't include a change in pay.

    Not saying he would go to BYU. Not saying BYU wants him. Not saying I want him at BYU even. Just saying from the outside looking it, staying at Utah doesn't seem like the best plan for him. Particularly if his wife isn't coaching there anymore (when did that happen?)

    Apparently Lark thinks a lot of Max Hall. Personally - I don't know how he would or wouldn't be as a coach...but it might be nice to have at least ONE coach on staff that takes the Utah game seriously.

    So - one of the local stations had Brad Rock, Sorenson, etc. all on talking about the Anae and possibly Roderick coaching thing.

    They had some interesting things to say about Anae - essentially that perhaps one of the reasons he is feeling like it is a good move to return is that he will be given complete autonomy with the offense this time around. His call on assistant coaches. His call on which QB starts. His call on all of it.

    Could make things interesting here.

    See, but that's the very stuff that would make me leave if I was Roderick.

    If I'm that guy, and you want me to sit and learn from Coach Chow for a year, I'm all for that, but what I'm not good with is being told to stay somewhere with no upward mobility by getting passed over for a kid with no experience even really coaching.

    but it seems like they did compensate him for his loyalty. I believe he is the highest paid Utah assistant at $200k (I think BJ is only at $225k). That's not bad scratch for an assistant (at Utah) and considering he made the move to leave for Washington and then had to talk Whitt back into letting him stay.

    Wow, I'm not sure if there's a single accurate statement in there. I'll clean it up for you later, but don't have time to correct everything right now.

    .
    Here is a little fact checking for you.

    The real timeline:

    2009, Promoted to Co-OC with Schramm. ARod will be calling plays.

    A few days later, ARod accepts WR coach at UW

    A few days after that, reconsiders and returns to Utah. Still Co-OC, but not calling plays.

    Halfway through 2009, Given playcalling duties, still share OC with Schramm

    2011, demoted to WR coach when Chow takes OC.

    2012, applies and interviews for vacant OC, loses out position to BJ, promoted to Passing game Coordinator.

    The original drama started with his step to UW after he was promoted to Co-OC. If he doesn't make that move, nothing else is really that dramatic.

    Not at all. He's getting paid great.

    I would still leave. There's not currently an opportunity to climb the ladder at Utah, sans Brian Johnson getting a HC spot.

    The Wisconsin opportunity seems like it has more upward mobility of the three right now. Maybe Hawaii if he really was offered the OC spot. i don't know you'd go coach at BYU if the pay is lower. Maybe the thinking is that Anae becomes the HC when Bronco leaves and he could slide in to the OC position.
