Light-hitting practices


Hey guys, was just reading a Des article on BYU's practice and I came across something that alarmed me a little. No, it's not for us, I'm actually alarmed for BYU's sake.

Now, many of us know that Bronco decided to have light-hitting, no-tackle practices. The alarming thing is the number of players that he left out of the two full-contact scrimmages that they had. As the Des article says:

"Nearly a dozen key players on both sides of the ball didn’t even participate in those scrimmages, which means players such as Kyle Van Noy, Brandon Ogletree, Ross Apo and Cody Hoffman will enter the opener having not tackled, or been tackled, since the Armed Forces Bowl win over Tulsa last December."

I understand not wanting any of your guys to be hurt during fall camp, but this seems over-protective to the point of diminishing your team's ability to perform. Personally, Bronco's going a little overboard on this, and I think his team might pay the price over the first month of play, particularly against WSU's offense, BSU's D, and Utah's team as a whole.

So what do you guys think?
