Sounds like a quality source
3 2 1... Allbuffs explodes
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.
If that is Bohn guy, then he is out of his mind, lost it.
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
Ha. Didn't even think of that angle. It would be interesting.
1st of all from what we have heard I highly doubt Bronco is his 1st choice. But at the same time I think he is really worth a look. He turned around BYU, has a good past as a DC and has been HC for 8 years or so. I could certainly see why Bohn would talk with him.
P.S. Just found this post about Mendenhall and why he might consider CU.
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.
i wonder if stitt has been in touch with him too
I actually like this hire better than Butch Jones. Am I crazy?
Not exactly a glowing endorsement :lol:
I am confused as to what the downside here would be :/ maybe thats just me.
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.
Can we though? Discussions this week have not been productive apparently
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.
Can't complain with Mendanhall.
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.
