"Alright, go find Bronco, boys."
And with that BYU offensive coordinator Robert Anae signaled that he was done talking to the media for the day. It ended a rather interesting three minute session with reporters after BYU's Blue/White game on Saturday afternoon. As I wrote in the report I just filed for the newspaper, Anae had all kinds of reasons to be pleased. The offense scored four touchdowns and a field goal in nine series over 65 plays, roughly, but Anae said it wasn't fast enough. He also took a few jabs at the media. This time, Anae didn't ask the purpose of questions, as he did a few weeks ago. Instead, he basically told us what to write. Should be an interesting fall. Here is the transcript: Anae on the offense overall:"We've got a long way to go in terms of playing fast and playing hard. So whatever you write in your goofy columns, write that. We've got a long way to go before I get to the point where I am satisfied how fast we play, and how hard we play."On his overall feeling about the offense's pace through 12 practices?"This was our first real game experience, for the guys. I think that part of it had more to do with it than anything. Because apparently in our practices we have not done a well enough job to teach them how to go fast in a game situation. So today was a step forward. At least we gave them that experience and that opportunity."On what he was pleased with today:"I am really going to have to look at film, because I am just coming off the field. We turned the ball over once, but we dodged a bullet because we had a flag on there. Right now, without really taking a hard look at it, most pleased with how we secured the football."On having the defense on its heels:"You guys got to take this within context. Our D was resting their studs. So write that in your little papers, OK? Do not take anything here and blow it [out of proportion]. It is not that great, and it is not that bad." On the offense resting some guys as well, though: "Oh, we were going as well as we could go. I am telling you, when our D straps it up, it is on. Write that in your columns." On the overall QB play today:"The quarterback is the No. 1 position for securing the football. So we did that. I am very pleased with it. Ammon [Olsen] got a little dinged up, so we will see on Monday where he is at." On how Taysom Hill has played in practices (Hill didn't play today): "Taysom was hurt, and because it was live, I didn't want him around any of that action. Taysom is having a good spring, and doing well."On whether he has a certain time in mind to get plays off:"Yeah, I do have a certain time. And it is as fast as we can go. Our guys will see that. I am confident our coaches will drive that point home come Monday." On how the running backs did today: "The running backs ran hard and they secured the ball. There were a couple of blocking issues that we hope to get better with next week."
