Let's see how many we lose to Utah with the coaching carousel that BYU likely goes on the next 5-10 years. This should be fun. Love Kalani the person. But I'd rather have a coach than wins 70% of his games and it comes down to a FG vs rivals most years. Maybe Kalani turns it around, maybe he doesn't. But COULD BYU HAVE KEPT HIM, I currently don't see anyone who is going to be more consistent, win more games, keep a program clean than Bronco Mendenhall.

Who else you got? I know, I know, that's Tom Holmoe's job. There has to be tons of coaches ready to jump at the money BYU is willing to pay who could totally go undefeated every couple years and have a winning record vs the utes while independent. Right?
I'm the first one to say BYU needs to up the pay. That or stop scheduling like we have been. And nobody expects to go undefeated every year. But Bronco should have been able to do it once in his 11 years at BYU. And he should have at least been more competitive with Utah and not go 3-7, including 5 straight. That has nothing to do with $ and everything to do with him not caring about that game as much as Whittingham does and allowing us to be embarrassed year after year.
I don't think it had anything to do with Bronco "not caring about the game as much" .... There was some dynamic between those two that had Bronco snake-bit. K-Whitt got the better of Bronco in this rivalry ... whether Bronco didn't know how to manage the team's emotions (which could partly account for his poorer record against some of the big teams) or what, I'm not sure. But I don't think it is the Bronco didn't care enough ....
