Duckhunter:If I'm wrong, prove it. Please post the name of the
article wherein Mendenhall was offered the UCLA job. Please also include the
name of the newspaper, and the date of the article. I'll Google those
keywords and confirm back here that exists....IF it exists.If you
cannot provide the title, media publication, and date, then it is YOU who had
been wrong. And since you responded to me calling me wrong when I hand NOT
been, and -- once again -- failed to provide any proof, then it's clear who
was being......frantic and emotional!So go ahead...prove
@naval lintYou cling to that "emotionally and frantically".
To bad your wrong.LOL!

@ gdog3finallyWhat are you talking about? "But the lack of
offense much of the last 10 years in Provo (minus one great Beck and Hall
years/senior years) has been a real shift for the blue. The last two years has
been an all time low (since pre Lavell days)."The lack of
offense for much of the last ten years? 2006-2010 were amazing years,
offensively, for BYU. The leading rusher in BYU history. The best TE, the most
receiving yards, winningest QB, most consecutive 10 win seasons. Most bowl wins
in a row. Etc, etc. If those are "down years", then you have to adjust
The Deuce - Because everything over the past couple of years was
Coach Reynolds' fault (and Doman, possibly, but he hasn't been totally
thrown under the bus just yet). Just like it was Anae's fault after 2010
and Hill's fault in 2009. Nothing is every Bronco's fault.
Norm Chow was the right hire, but that faded when Chow finally got his head
coach gig after all of these years. Other than that Whittingham (a defensive
guru) has mismanaged his OCs and QBs (very costly for Utah. I know many BYU fans
feel the same in recent years with Doman and Nelson relative to Bronco's
choices for the same position hires. Great defenses still need help. For Utah
it's common. But the lack of offense much of the last 10 years in Provo
(minus one great Beck and Hall years/senior years) has been a real shift for the
blue. The last two years has been an all time low (since pre Lavell days).
Would someone tell me why BYU would keep Bronco as the head coach after the mess
we witnessed this last year. The Cougar AD said that changes would be made and
there is little if any change that is significant. Unless the HC is replaced
this team is not going anywhere new. If I were a recruit I would stay as far
away from BYU as possible. The lights are on and nobody is home.

Does anyone know where the Baker and Pututau kids are committed to? They are
both D1 from South Sevier? I know Pututau was offered by USU.
Hicks is committed to BYU but has not signed a letter of intent. He has the
option to find a better opportunity if one is available to him. I hope he
sticks with BYU.
The solution is obvious...Just as coaches move-on for better
opportunities, players should be able to do the same.Anderson moved
on, WITHOUT PENALTY, for a better opportunity at Madison.Players
should be given the same option.
sls:"Unlike Whittingham and Mendenhall who turned down BCS jobs
to stay, Andersen went packing as soon as somebody called."Not
so. Andersen declined overtures from Colorado and California before finally
accepting Wisconsin's offer. Besides, there really aren't that many
head coaches who would decline coaching a school like Wisconsin over a school
like Utah St, and especially given the salary gap between those two jobs.
@bslackwhen the article was first posted, it was Max Hall. It has
Anae was the BYU OC just two years ago, so it's really nothing new to have
him return to Provo. Everyone knows he was a great offensive line coach at
Texas Tech (before BYU) and for the past two years at Arizona. It seems to me
that Hicks is just lobbying for Doman to stay on staff, which is
understandable.As for the Aggies, no more Andersen and now Weber at
OL coach. Weber's offensive line at BYU was the weak link. I feel sorry
for the Utah State program which had made a lot of progress with a HC who said
he loved the place and was going to stay forever. Unlike Whittingham and
Mendenhall who turned down BCS jobs to stay, Andersen went packing as soon as
Wimmer 33 what are you talking about? The picture? This is Brandon Doman. I
hope Brandon decides to stay. I was certainly one of those who has been
frustrated with Brandon as the OC as well as QB Coach. I am not convinced that
bringing back Anae is the right call. This seems very odd considering the way
Anae left two years ago. I think Anae did a pretty good job previously and
didn't understand the reasons why he was forced to move on, but this seem
very ackward for all involved.
Sounds like the Aggies are doing a better job of reaching out to recruits than
BYU throughout the change. Go Aggies
you do realize that's Max Hall and not Doman right?
