@Cougar Claws

Bronco Mendenhall insults his own fans... (Monson: Mendenhall owes BYU fans an apology, SL Trib, October 6, 2009)

And doesn't believe preparing any differently for big games. Remember when FSU stomped the Y in Provo. Mendenhall simply said, "I didn't prepare our team for that caliber of opponent.." (So, uh, coach...what or who were you preparing for?)

This is why BYU loses the big games.

I'd take Mike Leach over Bronco every. day. of. the. week.

Wsu will beat the blue out of the cougars. Promise you that.
In fact, he will do better than .500 in the pac12

Re: teleste

I think Bronco Mendenhall is a pretty misunderstood coach. He doesn't do things perfectly, and like I said before he has said some insensitive things about the fans, but he has also given props to the fans for their support. In terms of coaching the way coaching needs to be done at BYU (recruiting players who will live the honor code for the most part, etc). Bronco has done a pretty good job.

Did you just compare Washington State to FLORIDA STATE? Sorry, but that's like comparing Indiana to Michigan. Don't get me wrong WSU is a good team but people are talking like they are going to be the Oklahoma Sooners of the north or something. Texas Tech had a really good offense but how much noise did they really make in the Big 12?

So Bronco doesn't prepare for big games? There might be a little premise for that argument, but BYU beat Washington in the season opener in 2010 with basically all freshman, how is this game any bigger than that one? Bronco beat the aforementioned Sooners in the season opener. Sometimes BYU can beat big teams, sometimes not like everybody.

What is always beyond comical is hearing BYu players prognosticate their greatness.............then reality sets in when the season starts. The bottom line is that BYu has very little speed or talent.

@ Cougar Claws,

Bronco is misunderstood. After next year his contract is up at BYu. Bill Belichick, Tom Coughlin, Les Miles and Nick Saban are all scared to death because THEY KNOW how great Bronco is. They don't wanna lose their job. Bronco is the greatest coach of all time.

Mike is a great guy and a great coach. Wish I didn't have to root against him in his very first game at WSU.

I expect a tough game.

"Bronco is the greatest coach of all time."

Thank you for finally acknowledging reality.

Seriously though, did I just say that? Bronco is a solid, not necessarily great coach and the extreme comments are getting less and less funny.
