I had to smile at this article because the Reynolds dynasty reminds me of the
Kruger dynasty at Utah. You just can't have too many of either.
The plural of "Reynolds" is "Reynoldses."
I know he was Lavell's first choice to be the next coach after Crowton.
I'm sure he or Norm Chow could have done a much better job than Gary
Crowton. I'm glad he's still on BYU's staff and not bitter like
Chow seems to be. He seems like a pretty even keel kind of guy. Also how
the heck did Matt Reynolds go undrafted? Was his senior season that bad that he
fell from possibly the first round to undrafted? Seems unlikely. Did his age
hurt him that much? He is running with the ones and twos in camp. I thought he
had the talent to be at least a middle round draft choice. NFL teams don't
seem to have any respect for BYU football at this point in time. Hopefully they
can change that perception.
Coming from a huge Ute fan...Coach Reynolds and his sons are Amazing
competitors but more importantly amazing people. I grew up going to high
school, and playing basketball with Matt, and Houston. They are what BYU
athletics should be all about. Coach Reynolds not getting the coaching job of
Bronco was a mistake, they told him he had the job, and changed their minds last
second. BYU is unbelievably lucky to have had Coach Reynolds and his boys stick
around. Coach Reynolds and his family are the glue that hold BYU football
together. I just can't be a fan of BYU athletics when a man like that is
constantly overlooked. I would love more than anything to see coaches Whitt and
Reynolds coaching on the same sideline some day!
In about 15 years, we should see the kids of the Reynold's boys anchoring
the BYU O line.
Dick,What an amazing legacy.Thanks for the feature on the Reynolds.
