Anae on BYU offensive woes: 'Guys are really trying; the execution is not there.'

Posted Sep 24th - 8:17pm by Greg Wrubell

As BYU prepares for Friday night's home meeting with Middle Tennessee, the Cougars are pulling up the rear in the national passing stats--unfamiliar territory for a program credited with helping to introduce high-octane aerials to the modern college game.

Offensive coordinator Robert Anae, who as a lineman blocking for some of the school's most prolific quarterbacks in the 1980s, is acutely aware of the struggles and the stats, and acknowledges that ranking 123rd of 123 FBS teams in pass efficiency is "kind of a sign of the stage of where we're at right now."

"The pass game has not been effective," said Anae after Tuesday's practice, "and the run game has been spotty as well. It has got to be tightened down on all levels."


BYU's Rose recovering and 'feeling really good'

Posted Sep 24th - 3:23pm by Greg Wrubell

Since surgery to remove a cancer from his pancreas more than four years ago, BYU head basketball coach Dave Rose has returned to the Huntsman Cancer Hospital in Salt Lake City every six months, for routine diagnostic scans. "It's an interesting way to live," Rose says of the regular visits.

After years of clean reports, his most recent scan revealed cancer 'spots.' The decision was made to perform surgery to remove the cancerous tissue.

Two weeks ago Monday, Rose underwent the procedure, followed by days of recovery in the hospital. On Sunday, Sept. 15, Rose returned to his Provo home. Today, he is well into the recovery process and on track to lead his team when practice begins on October 7th.


Mendenhall on 1-2 start: 'We've been here before ... I'm not hitting the panic button.'

Posted Sep 23rd - 9:14pm by Greg Wrubell

Acknowledging that his team was "disappointed" and "saddened" by Saturday's 20-13 home loss to Utah, BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall on Monday said a short week before the Cougars' next game would be "the best medicine" for his team.

Mendenhall said Friday night's home meeting with Middle Tennessee "forced (his players) to get right back to work."

"I was impressed with their practice habits today," Mendenhall told media members Monday evening, "and their resiliency and looking forward to getting back to work. That's the temperament and the mood I saw today."


Notre Dame transfer Chris Badger eligible to play immediately for BYU

Posted Sep 19th - 2:28pm by Jason Shepherd

PROVO — BYU announced on Thursday that the NCAA has approved a waiver request by the Cougars on behalf of Notre Dame transfer Chris Badger to allow the defensive back to play this season.

The approval makes the redshirt freshman eligible for competition immediately.

A native of Provo, Utah, Badger prepped at Timpview High School. After finishing his high school career in 2009, he enrolled mid-year at Notre Dame before serving an LDS mission during the 2010-2011 seasons. He returned to Notre Dame for the 2012 season where he completed his redshirt year.


Mendenhall, Falslev open up about rivalry game

Posted Sep 19th - 7:57am by Sean Walker, KSL.com Contributor

PROVO — BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall knows what it takes to beat Utah in the team's annual rivalry meeting.

For three straight years, though, that victory has eluded him. Moreover, his attempted to squelch the flames of over-enthusiasm by approaching the battle of in-state foes as ‘just another game.'

With time running out for some of his most talented recruits to finish their BYU careers with a win, Mendenhall is trying something different.

Posted Sep 17th - 2:53pm by Greg Wrubell

BYU will enter Saturday's game with Utah missing one of its most important defensive players.

Senior linebacker Spencer Hadley has been suspended for five games, as the result of an honor code violation.

BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall announced an indefinite suspension in an afternoon press release, citing a violation of team rules; school spokesperson Carri Jenkins later released a statement, in which the five-game term was attached to Hadley's suspension.


Mendenhall, Cougars prepare for 'unique and special' game

Posted Sep 16th - 9:42pm by Greg Wrubell

The BYU football team was back on the outdoor practice fields Monday afternoon, but if a bye week freshened the team ahead of its meeting with Utah, head coach Bronco Mendenhall had a hard time seeing it.

"If I were to say from what I saw today," said Mendenhall, "it's been the other way. It looks like our players were sluggish and kind of bored; it's like 'when are we going to play the game already?'... and we're not prepared to play it yet."

"If I had to do it again, just after experiencing (the bye week), I would have rather had the (Utah) game come right after Texas...after going through it, it seems like a month since we played."
