Jake Kuresa interview on 1320 the other night nailed
it regarding why BYU was struggling on the field.

His comments were focused on the weak o-line play. He felt that Anae would help bring some of that nasty aggression back to o-line. Stated that it was lacking and pointed out the unique challenge facing the coaching staff due to how many of the players go home after practice to wives and babies (meaning, it is hard to maintain that nasty aggression on the field when your mind is focused on sleepless nights with teething babies, dirty diapers and hormonal erratic mommy behavior). He intimated that Bronco is looking for someone to own the offense so he can focus on defense and off field player issues. Kuresa felt that Anae would be an upgrade due to the fact that he isn't such a like-able guy, but he is a taskmaster. He said when he graduated and met up with Anae after, Anae treated him like a son, but during football and school, he was harder and less forgiving.

Kuresa made it clear that Doman focused on skill set players at the expense of the offensive line. He said that it didn't matter how good your scheme was if your line cannot protect and is unwilling or unable to go out and flatten guys. This is what Lavell took advantage of. For those of you who saw the game last night, this is why Saban won. It began in the trenches. They asked Kuresa about the thinner lighter version of the o-line, and Kuresa stated that that was fine, but less relevant to execution and aggression. Again he stated that if the line is not tough and playing to destroy the defense it doesn't matter.
