Just Wondering...

....why would ESPN waste their time interviewing Bronco, wasn't there a coach fom an "elite" team like Utah available?

Salt Lake City, UT

An "elite" team that wasn't in the top 25 at season's end? Maybe ESPN knows something that is not publicized in rural Arizona.

Tempe, AZ

Just wondering why you are bringing up the Utes on a BYU article. Comical!

I think ESPN is trying to find out what this year's meaningless slogan will be. They also wanted to see if Roscoe would be willing to teach Pop Warner teams around the country how to line defenses up in 3-point stances and sprint out on the field together at possession changes. Wait, kiddie Pop Warner teams already do this. Furthermore, they wanted to see if there were any leftover "Quest for Perfection" t-shirts that could be donated to charity (I'm sure there are plenty).

Hemmy - FYI Gilbert is not rural. It's a suburb of Phoenix. Oops.

In the SportingNews Coach rankings, Mendenhall is ranked #15 and Whittingham is #21. It's incredible to have two "good" coaches from two "good" teams in such a small underpopulated state. BYU and Utah, and their coaches will always be good respectable teams with good respectable coaching staffs. Utah opted out because Whittingham's wife was mistreated during the last game, and he and Chris Hill found a good excuse to get out of it. BYU will always be a mid-major program because of its limited recruiting pool for both players and coaches, and will probably have its occasional break out year. This is due to BYU's honor code and high academic standards. The Utes will always be mid-majorish in the PAC-12 and find itself in the middle or tail end of the PAC-12 rankings, and perhaps have its occasional break out year. Also, the University of Utah is a good university, but the best players will always choose USC or one of the other California schools since they are better academic institutions with better weather and better training facilities. In other words, everyone should get over yourselves.
