    I honestly don't know why I keep coming here for updates on the coaching search. I guess the comedic value is substantial.

    I think we need another thread about this.

    He is a solid coach, with very good west coast ties. I would think he would be ready to jump right into recruiting, as opposed to all the eastern guys.

    I'm going to disagree with you here. I think his track record is actually about as good as anybody at a smaller school. By the way did you eat paint chips as a kid?

    We don't need solid, we need a very good coach and recruiter to compete with Stanford, Oregon, UCLA, U$C, Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon State, Washington unless middle or bottom of the pack in the Pac 12 is the goal. Solid record in the mountain West is not good enough for a team that wants to win the Pac 12.

    Mendenhal has been a good coach from what I can tell. Hire that right staff and recruiting should be fine. I like his experience at BYU. Quite a few big time wins. Would definitely heat up our rivalry with the school to the west lol

    All depends on the assistants. I like the defensive background.

    I'd have trouble complaining about hiring Mendenhall.

    He is 73-29 as head coach t BYU. That's a nice record. Never had a losing record at BYU. 5-2 record in bowl games.

    This would be one of those hires that no one will love, but most everyone could live with. At least that's how I would feel.

    I will support the Buffs regardless of who they hire. I have shared my opinion, hiring Bronco Medenhall doesn't excite me, we can do better.

    There are parts of him that I like a lot more than Jones (connections to the west coast recruiting, for example). He's not perfect, but he's a nice coach. I wouldn't find fault with Bohn for bringing him in.

    BYU would have won 10 games this year if they had had a remotely good QB to direct their offense. Nelson is trash.

    Well he does have the religious thing going like McCartney, and that worked well for us.

    I haven't had too much positive to say about Bohn, but I have to give it to him. We've all been so focused on the Jones saga, that this one kinda slipped right in there.
