OT: Bronco Mendenhall's Virginia having the wheels fall off this week

Virginia is losing to Pitt (3-5) by a score of 7-28 going into the 4th quarter. If this score maintains, Virginia will drop to 5-3 (2-2).

Yep. But still likely bowl bound. One season at a time.

We'll, he plays absolute garbage as a schedule. We'd easily go to a bowl with his schedule, as bad as we are. BYU has never had a lot of depth, and going up against a murderous front seven of games really did a number on our two deep.

Bronco and Robert Anae are fools gold. I have the patience to wait for the real thing, not a flash in the pan that can easily shut down by a .500 team.

Fool's gold is what we are seeing at BYU right now.
BYU would not be bowling this year against any sort of ACC conference schedule.
I agree Bronco wasn't a top 5 college football coach. But to say he's fool's gold is a long stretch. Maybe a high quality silver?

We aren't fools gold at BYU. We are copper. But copper has value. Fools gold doesn't.

The gimmicky nature of Anae's offense and Bronco's defense both lend to over-weighted results. Good results against bad teams, and horrible results against good teams.

Like I said, I'm patient enough to wait for BYU to become real gold again. We haven't had that since LaVell left.

We are a good offensive scheme with bad (or wrong) players. We don't have a gimmicky offense. It is a proven offense that is used almost exclusively on the Pro level. The very best players and coaches in the world use our offense, because it is the best.

It isn't good right now, so it is copper. But with the right people it will be something special.

I feel much more comfortable in the direction our offense is heading (provided that we get rid of a few of the offensive coaches and assistants, and can get the right people as recruits in to the system) than I ever did under Anae. It is the right scheme for our talent pool. I can wait a year or two for that to happen. I am patient.

-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.
