    Nice of Ziggy to invite Bronco to the event. Obviously Ziggy thought that Bronco had a lot to do with his success.

    What comment in the article leads anyone to believe that Bronco is taking any credit for where Ziggy Ansah is now? Is it where he says, "I felt lucky to be part of coaching him?" Is it when Bronco said, "I felt lucky to be part of this?" Or maybe it was when he said, "My kids travel with my team and they look up to him. My kids love him. He's a special person."

    Yeah, Bronco made this all about himself and sure did spend his time "living high on the hog at the draft." Or maybe he was there because Ziggy asked him to be there.

    I've never heard of Bronco saying anything that would promote himself before the program or one of his players. Quit with the hate already.

    What is particularly Brave about attacking the character of some one you neither know, have no personal contact with, some one you have never even said hello to, have not even read the book about his personal philosophy, have not taken the time to talk to those who have worked with him, nor taken the time to note how much those who have played for him love him, and have not spent anytime understanding the circumstances of the quotes you attribute to him? Here is what is missing in your's called Character. A lost trait among the anonymous hordes who think because they can write that they have something worth writing. How do your comments elevate anyone? What personal vendetta gives you cause to lower yourself to trying to drag another man down into the gutter? How did he offended you personally? How has his daily efforts made you or anyone else a lesser person? Ziggy Ansah pays tribute to the man. Be honest Brave! Tell us how your comments were Brave.

    bitter and jealous plucked chicken

    Are you upset that Ziggy went before Star? Yes, a #5 is way before a #14 in the draft but it doesn't make any difference to me but to you I think it does. LOL

    Could it be that Bronco is really more than what you think he is and that this is just more proof and it's like rubbing your nose in it?

    Spin it BYU/Bronco hater all you want, Bronco gets a lot of credit for this and that just drives you nuts.

    I love great BYU stories and so does the media. And I truly love how it makes you kids on the hill go all 'frantic and emotional' on us.

    "It's interesting that Bronco spent his time living high on the hog at the draft in NYC thanks to Ziggy, considering that he didn't even want Ziggy on the team."

    Laughing out loud at your jealous spin. Bronco never said he didn't want Ziggy. All that Bronco was doing was challenging Ziggy to prove himself.

    btw, which imaginary coordinator convinced Bronco to let Ziggy stay? Bronco has been his own Defensive Coordinator for most of his tenure as BYU's head coach.

    It's interesting that Bronco spent his time living high on the hog at the draft in NYC thanks to Ziggy, considering that he didn't even want Ziggy on the team.

    From the Deseret News 3 years ago: "I said, 'I don't know you [Ziggy], I don't trust you and I don't know if you can even make it through a workout.' I certainly didn't believe he would play after watching him go through winter conditioning because he couldn't get enough oxygen to finish a drill. And it didn't look like he wanted to very bad."

    Lucky for Bronco that one of his since-fired coordinators convinced him to let Ziggy stay. I guess even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while.
