Commentary: BYU and Utah football programs aren't all that different
Going into the football season, football fans like to rally behind their respective teams, believing this is the year for that breakout season. Before the first game is played, fans and the media carry expectations into the season.
Fans of rival schools point out why their team is better than the rest. A look at recent history however, shows that the football programs at Utah and BYU are quite similar.
After the 2004 season, Bronco Mendenhall and Kyle Whittingham, who were serving as defensive coordinators for their respective schools, took over the head coaching positions for the 2005 season. This upcoming season will mark the ninth year for both head coaches.
