Yeah, heaven forbid Bronco live up to the expectation of getting an undefeated season during his 11 years, especially when he'd talk about a national championship. And you're right, I shouldn't have the expectation he do better than 3 -7 against our arch rival. What was I thinking?
Well, at this rate new coach is batting 0.000 against his former team, and much worse than 70% win percentage. I have almost 0 confidence in beating utah with the current coaching staff.
As for Lavell, that's a little apples and oranges. He put BYU on the map, had a national title, and another season where we almost went undefeated with only 1 loss ('96). He also coached all the legends - McMahon, Young, Detmer, etc.
Beck, hall, Hill. KVN Ziggy etc. seems like a double standard here.
I give Bronco credit for the things he deserves credit for but that BYU can't do better than him is loser thinking.
Ok.

Just because BYU has done worse than before doesn't mean that BYU can't do better. It does mean that it's not easy, and pay will have to increase.

I laugh out loud when I hear guys lambast Bronco for not winning many games against competition with .700 records. How many teams do? Oh Brother.
By definition ... .300 win against them. :roll:

And once you beat a team, you have really hurt their chances of achieving a .700 or better record at year's end.
