Payne-Holmoe Sends BYU to the Sweet 16

It took BYU nearly a full 90 minutes, but the No. 1-seeded and 2nd-ranked Cougars were finally able to put away Auburn 1-0 Thursday night and advanced to the third round of the NCAA Women’s Soccer College Cup.
With the score knotted at 0-0 with 44 seconds left, BYU freshman Michele Murphy was fouled in the box by Auburn junior Blanca Sierra and BYU was awarded a penalty kick.
Senior Carlee Payne-Holmoe placed the ball down on the spot, stepped back, stared down Auburn senior goalkeeper Amy Howard, and then with nerves …

The Biggest Obstacle for BYU

The biggest obstacle for BYU as it embarks on its path of independence in football next season isn’t scheduling, television contracts, integrating its other sports into the WCC or finding a home for programs like softball and swimming and diving.
The whole plan will live and die by the success BYU can generate on the football field.
Seeing that the master plan calls for playing a national schedule with nationally prominent programs, the key to everything will be for BYU to recruit student athletes that can abide by the school’s honor code …

In all honesty the weather doesn’t play a huge role in the outcome of the game. Yeah it’s cold in the stands, but down on the field the training and equipment staff take numerous precautions to keep the players warm.
For instance there are propane furnaces stationed all over the sidelines. These sideline space heaters keep your legs and feet warm in between series. The equipment staff also passes out those giant coats that are extremely insulated and keep the rain/snow off of your body.

This is a hush-hush post that only about twenty people know about.  So lucky for all of you, I was one of the twenty that got in on the meeting. After Coach Crowton was asked to resign and before Coach Whittingham was offered the job as the head coach for BYU, about fifteen players got together and stole a few minutes from Tom Holmoe’s day. We went up to the Athletic Directors office and we told him how strongly we felt about Coach Mendenhall becoming the Head Coach. It wasn’t …

If he goes there will be trouble and if he stays there will be….another national championship. (I am not just hoping and wishing, lightning will strike again.  Tyrone, will be turning in his coaching carriers grave.) It’s no secret to any BYU fan that Bronco has alluded to leaving after 5 years.  I think I’ve heard it more than once out of his mouth.  I’ve also heard that he believes he will not be like Lavell and coach at BYU for his entire career.  Or would he? I …

Coach Mendenhall has said time and time again that the most important thing in life is not football. He’s also wise enough to see that the only way that we will get enough publicity to get people interested in the Church is by winning football games. Coach has talked to the team on numerous occasions about the importance of playing from a different place so that when others watch us play football they will notice something different about us, then upon further inquiry we will be able to speak about how …

Coaching Staff, Tradition, UCLA week »

[10 Sep 2008 | 7 Comments | ]

The man has a very long and impressive resume including: 27 years at BYU , he has been a Cougar assistant head coach, offensive coordinator, co-offensive coordinator, quarterback coach, receivers coach, recruiting coordinator and graduate assistant.  In 12 of 18 years as offensive coordinator at BYU, Chow led the offense to a place in the NCAA’s top 10 in total offense.  And those are only his numbers at BYU!  The man is a very good coach, so to say he will have his team ready is an understatement.

There is always some sort of a home field advantage.  Whether it is being familiar with the game day routine, or the crowd, or not having to travel.  I always felt so comfortable playing in Lavelle Edwards Stadium.  I would arrive at the stadium walk to my locker, go get taped-up and drink a Powerade.  Then I would put on my socks, pants and cleats and walk out the tunnel to the field.  When I got to the field, I would walk down the home sideline to the opposite goal line, across …

I wanted to post a few answers on the main page that I thought more people could appreciate.  This one came via Rex who asked if I could explain zone coverage’s a little bit…I would love to.
Cover 2:
Cover 2 is a basic 5 under 2 deep zone coverage.  There are 5 underneath zones that are occupied by 3 linebackers and 2 corners.  The safeties play over the top providing coverage and help on the deep balls.  Zones are based on players’ positions on the field.  Corners cover the outside shallow routes, outside linebackers …

We just had a somewhat questionable performance on Saturday, and everyone watched the UCLA game last night.  Lets not get ahead of ourselves and start looking forward to the UCLA game.  Coach Mendenhall will do his job keeping the team focused on the task at hand, but the team will be back in school.  That means they will be approached by students, and faculty about what they thought about the UCLA game.  Wait, what? Don’t we play Washington this week.  It can be tough for some guys to stay focused during …
