"-athletic QBs, & an OL that was well established with experience together"

I think that is it in a nutshell...

CBM has a specific mindset that works for him in a system he believes in, and unfortunately for win-starved Hoos, it is not a "just-add-water" approach.

CBM's approach is more like a Vintner making a Port or Sherry, rather than mixing up some Koolaid in a pitcher.

A lot of coached can do this quickly, maybe (to follow the analogy) more like brewing some coffee, or even Moonshine, but CBM has established a more time-consuming process that works for him.

The problem is, that this process was already in place at BYU before he became the Head Coach, and BYU has institutional controls (mostly based on religion of its students) that assist with this more deliberate approach.

If everyone, and I am not just talking about the fans, but the student-athletes, the community and our culture, buys into this and gives CBM the time to do so, I think it could work, but I am not sure that tweaks are still not needed right away in spite of this.

Even if you are an Anae supporter, those Special Teams blunders have to be erased right this second.

If we had good ST play, I would feel good about winning some games this season, even with the Offense and Defense as they are, but we are not going to win any more if those ST teams do not tighten up a lot.
