    I'm torn. Last night was inexcusable. It's completely on the coaching staff. But BYU as an institution isn't invested in the athletic programs. And there is no support in Salt Lake City. The best BYU can get as far as coaching is to hire someone inexperienced and hope they develop. And the same for assistants. Kalani is not a quick learner apparently, but to replace him is also a gamble. This could have been the season that made him. Now he must produce against the toughest schedule of his career.

    Sitake has lost at home to UMass and NIU. He has a two game losing streak to USU and a three game losing streak to both Utah and Boise State. Iím not too concerned about the next coach being a gamble.

    Point taken, but we all know he gets one more season. Clearly next year will be a disaster so he's most likely gone anyway. Not sure another year makes a difference when he will be replaced by another inexperienced head coach.

    We know kalani sucks. The nest guy might suck or might not. Cut the cord now.

    Do you think this is actually a possibility though?

    I’ve been down on Kalani since the beginning. However, last night actually gave me hope. This recruiting year will be critical. If it’s another dog class, he’s done.

    I think the only major coaching change that could possibly happen this off-season is if Les Miles wants Grimes.

    True. I anticipate a bump on this topic around 5 games in next year when we are 1 and 4

    Who should BYU hire? My team could really use a DC, if anyone’s interested.

    Lance Anderson, currently DC and Co-HC at Stanford.

    He's LDS.

    He expressed interest in the BYU HC job during the search.

    He's known to be a great recruiter.

    He knows how it is to coach at a university with high standards/restrictions.

    After Sitake & Co. underperform in 2019, starting off with a probable 9th in a row loss to Utah, I hope that dimwit AD of ours is at least smart enough to get on the phone and offer Anderson the job.

    Anderson was my first choice last time around. Nobody consulted me during the coaching search.

    Has Sataki ever won a game because he out coached the other team? He has won games because of talent discrepancies. He has won games because the players out performed a more talented team. He has certainly lost games because of poor coaching decisions. But are there any examples of a game won due to out coaching another?

    It's already a pretty bad class.

    I think a lot of that has to do with a small class. But BYU is in serious need of skill position speed. It has to come from the juco ranks.

    No.

    We made progress this year. Small, but real.

    Isn't it basically Lance Anderson or Jay Hill as your options if you fire Sitake?
    You know I'm free
    B*** you know I'm free
    Face it girl I'm free
    Yeah you know I'm free
    Okay I'm free yeah
    Free to chain my will onto the wings of my instinct
    And wander round this box you know I'm inextricably linked
    That's right I'm free to make a sooth to catch some stuff that holds me down
    To capture my desires fashion out a viscid crown
    . . .
    I never leave I'm super free
    To fill my smiles up with the tears that I forgot
    And haunt myself beside these pretty ghosts that float my heart
    You know I'm free

    Wisconsin. Maybe Arizona.

    Yes. We played a tougher schedule and played better against it. And that, with a core group of freshmen and first-year coaches on offense. So we are going in the right direction with reason to believe we will continue to go in the right direction.

    Firing Sitake won't get rid of the honor code. It won't eliminate the academic requirements. It won't get us into a P5 conference. It won't fix the unbalanced, difficult schedule full of crappy kickoff times and cross country travel. It won't cause the school admin and BoT to give the full backing the program needs. It won't give us access to the NY6.

    Carry on.

    I expect he'll muddle through enough and continue to putting up 6-6 or 7-5 type years. Best case scenario is he'll improve and things will come together for him to avg 8.5 wins like Bronco did during his independent era.

    throw bevell in there. i've heard he prefers to stay in the NFL, but BYU is most certainly not out of the question.

    And with the upgrade in scheduling that would be a significant accomplishment.

    It will get rid of incompetence at the hc position, get rid of a hc who wants a slow, boring and terrible offense, has no idea how to fix things, and blames everyone but himself


    I'm not sure how thisnboard is ok with keeping someone who is .500 after 3 years, after starting with a nfl qb and rb.

    The 3nd half Saturday showed how incompetent this staff is.
