Lots of interesting advice, but if you are not fairly good at Judo, none of it's going to work very well, and you may end up with the guy on your back. If your opponent is in a wrestling stance because he is/was a wrestler, you also may get counter thrown if you are careless.
You just need to knock the guy down and end up in mount or side control, knee on belly, so nothing spectacular is needed. Unfortunately, it's almost as hard to just knock someone down and end up in a superior position as it is to throw them for ippon.
I suppose throwing to half guard isn't so bad, which might happen as well.
In most of the video I watch, most BJJer's seem to take a stance with the left foot forward. The better ones use a good, strong wrestling stance, which is definitely not the easiest posture to work against, and does not really put them at a serious disadvantage given the rules of BJJ.
What you do will depend on if you take a right or left stance. I take a right stance (righty), so I would control the lead arm with a two on one grip, push it across their body, get a over the back/belt grip and depending on how they react, use some variant of hikkomi Gaeishi and land in mount, a basic hip throw, lots of possibilities depending again on how they react and move.
None of that is basic Judo, though.

The video is coming.
KOUCHIJudo is only gentle for the guy on top.

LOL, that would be my first choice for aiyotsu for sure, being it is my favorite technique.
Looking forward to the "Kouchi vs BJJ" the movie.

I had this same problem when I did Randori with a BJJ guy last week. Being a Judo Noob myself my knowledge of throws is limited but what I did was pull him forward in the direction he was leaning, to break his balance, and then as he corrected himself by leaning the other way I threw him with Tani-otoshi.

Why wait? If you know how to do Kouchi Gari, then you can figure it out for yourself.

Anyone have a good example of a snap down in a gi? I'd never heard the term before this thread, and all the videos I'm coming up with are of wrestlers.
Also, I personally have difficulty landing, well, anything on BJJ guys with their asses back. How does one go about dropping fast enough for an ippon against a butt-back guy? Also, how does one attack the legs of someone standing as such?
Also, I'm seconding the guy that warned against an overly upright stance. DON'T STAND TOO STRAIGHT. Training under current judo rules did squat when I got single leg'd in a heart beat, having never seen one before.

Best snap down move I've used in the Gi is a snap down -> push -> single leg. Get both collars or even just some shoulder or something, any kind of upperbody grip will do. Yank down hard, then immediately pull up and push backwards then dive for the nearest leg. It sounds kind of sloppy, but it sets up a GREAT single leg and if they don't resist the snapdown then you just drive your fists down to the mat with their gi held tight and spin to their back. Mileage may vary above blue belt.
