    I think it would be a pretty poor choice to go to UVa, but if he does, good luck to him.

    I'm betting on firesides.

    Either firesides or a new "Monday's Heroes" program.

    Eh... I don't know if he would make such a big to-do about Taysom transferring there. Kind of Heaps-ish. That seems more of a thing that would get covered by UVA /BYU football beat writers/ Twitter.

    I think the announcement is being made via BM's twitter account.

    The thing most fans are overlooking with this UVa/Taysom thing is that per NCAA rules a player has to announce a transfer first before the school he's transferring to can say anything.

    The "big announcement" was to announce a series with Old Dominion? Haha.

    Boy, that is exciting.

    I hope BYU announces a big series with Weber State soon.

    Let's take #gohoos out of the title. It implies support of that asshole program coached by traitors and grifters who lose to Utah.

    I'm grateful for Bronco's contributions to BYU, but I am glad he moved on. I don't feel a need to follow him or talk about him anymore, but I understand why you created this thread, JL. May it rarely get bumped.

    Why the curse words. Virginia hasn't done anything to offend BYU . We hired your coach who chose to leave and its obvious to all that he has been looking for another opportunity for some time. Get over it m8 ....Virginia respects BYU and has enjoyed the competition between the two Universities.

    I don't think there is any direct angst toward UVA (some feel it was a slap in the face that a BYU coach would leave BYU's program to go to UVA but I don't think anyone is mad at UVA for pursuing Bronco). Many in BYU's fan base were tired of Bronco and were happy to see him go. Get ready man, Bronco will do some nice things for UVA and initially you will be pretty happy with him. He will seem magnanimous and it will seem like a great marriage at first, but wait until something doesn't go Bronco's or UVA's way and Bronco feels the slightest heat for any such occurrence. Then you will start to see the quirkiness of Bronco Mendenhall and it will start to grind on many UVA fans.

    Bronco is a great defensive coordinator/coach. Bronco is a solid head coach. Bronco is terrible at PR.

    Don't mind YOhio. He lives in Dayton, so he gets a long leash 'round these parts.

    It was a good time for Bronco to leave. I hope the old BYU staff is successful at uva. I just don't care to talk about it. Like DH says.
    Give 'em Hell, Cougars!!!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    This is the correct answer.

    Bronco was BYU's coach. Now he isn't. Some posters kept including UVA news in other threads related to BYU due to Bronco's past relationship with BYU. But he's not here anymore. So he no longer has any bearing on BYU. And we don't need UVA recruiting or coaching news cluttering threads related to BYU. Which is why this thread was created. Those who still want to hear about Bronco and UVA can come here. Those who don't, won't see it in the other threads.

    BTW - looks like SI gives UVA an A- grade for the new coach hire. Congrats!

    I'm guessing that Bronco will generally elevate your school above the norm you've been experiencing. But he has struggled in Provo to get the Cougars to the next level. And I suspect you'll see the same. Better and more consistent teams, but they'll have a hard time challenging for conference championships.

    This can't be a serious question. You've met BYU fans, right? You're one of the people telling them that their expectations are too high.

    We've won a national championship, baby! Bronco kept telling us his goal was to win another.

    When the coach talks about it being the goal, fans are bound to raise expectations. (Not all fans...but you know this.)

    Heck - I remember when Shawn Bradley was quoted as saying that he was coming to BYU and his goal was to take the Cougars further than they'd ever been in the NCAA tournament. Half the BYU fans I know were absolutely sure this meant they were headed to the final 4 when he got home from his mission.

    Fans are fans. I suspect UVA has fans who believe that with the right coach they'll be competing for conference championships and playoff game inclusion too.

    Let me follow up by saying I like Bronco. I would've been happy to keep him and agree with those saying UVA is getting a good coach.

    In my original post, I didn't state the BYU fans "expect" to be able to reach a next level. But we both know there are many who do.
