    Blaine Fowler was an amazing BYU quarterback...that series he had in the national title game was a thing of beauty. He is no way anything even close to Gifford, Marc Wilson, Jim McMahon, Steve Young, Robbie Bosco, Ty Detmer or Steve Sarcesain (sp).

    I like Ron McBride and I am not a U or Weber fan. L. Edward and Ron McBride are great guys no matter what. As for Bronco which I understand he doesn't know how to golf but can you inmagine seeing L. Edward Surfing? I am sure Kyle Whitingham would try out surfing with Bronco just for fun. Glad he is recoverying.

    LaVell surrounded himself with great coaches and won over everybody with his humble, likable personality. He's been a great embassador nationally for BYU and the Church.

    The guy is just a good person.

    @Mount Olympus
    That's a rather disingenuous comment. Your not a fan of BYU but you respect LaVell but you don't like Bronco because he hasn't learned to be LaVell? What "thing or two" would you like Coach Mendenhall to learn from LaVell? If he learns them would you now have respect for Coach Mendenhall? Or is this just a forum for you to express anonymous disrespect for some one you don't really know? Maybe, Coach Mendenhall already has learned the "thing or two" and you don't know it. Actually like to hear answers on this one because it really sounds like you wanted to attack Coach Mendenhall as a non-BYU fan (which it's okay to be) but you wrapped your self in an iconic coaches reputation to make your self seem similarly respectable. I await your reasoned comments

    Best football coach the state has ever had. All the best to Coach Edwards.

    Not a BYU fan, but I have a lot of respect for LaVell. I wish the current coach at the Y would learn a thing or two from LaVell.
