We traded silver for feces.
-4 yards against TCU in a half sure felt like feces.
9 wins seasons > 2 wins seasons, no matter how much you hated the last coaches.
Eh, it wouldn't be much different with the last coaches. They had terrible recruiting years and the cupboards are effectively bare. We have almost no depth, and very little skill at any position. Some of that is on coaching, but some of that speaks to a miserable job recruiting. Things will get better. Taysom and Jamal were lipstick on a very ugly pig. When we get our recruits playing we'll get back to 9 win seasons (and better).

Your opinion seems to be widely disagreed with by most on here. This team and last year's would have much better records with Bronco and Anae. They were good coaches. Not great, but not bad either.

I'm not sure Bronco would have done any better than Sitake last year. This year ... we'll that's a different question.

This is stated widely on this board, almost as fact. It goes unchallenged by everyone.

How can anyone even know this? There are infinite number of variables. Not to mention the first, that Bronco CHOSE to leave (which was in my opinion a very smart thing to do... he didn't do a good job of recruiting, and that with the difficulty of scheduling could have been very problematic for he and Anae.)

That he got more money in the process is icing on the cake for him, I am sure.

I think it is funny that While Bronco was winning no one says a word, now that he has lost 2 in a row people start yelling "See, bronco would have sucked this year at BYU too!" So Bronco's Virginia team has less talent than BYU this year and is 5-3 in a tougher conference than BYU's independent schedule. I don't know why Virginia has dropped 2 games to pretty mediocre teams in the ACC but he has. I am confident that if he stays at Virginia, they will continue to improve and get to a bowl game. Virginia has been an ACC doormat for many, many years. BYU was a 9 win average team with Bronco and this year we have won 2 games and lost to some really, really bad teams. Trying to say Bronco's 2 losses in a row justifies BYU's horrible play is unbelievably moronic.

How many wins would this years team have against an ACC schedule? Be careful, BYU got whipped by ECU.

How well did BYU do against Boise state at home? How well did Virginia do against Boise state on the road?
