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, 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."

BYU enters bye week with some bounce

Posted Sep 9th - 8:35pm by Greg Wrubell

Two days after their 40-21 demolition of Texas on national television, the BYU Cougars were back on the practice field Monday, with head coach Bronco Mendenhall seeking to "set the vibe" heading into a bye week and a looming matchup with Utah.


Mendenhall said the early part of the week would focus on "fundamentals and younger-player development," with preparation for Utah picking up on Thursday; players will then be given the weekend off. The Cougars and Utes will play in Provo one week from Saturday at 8:15 p.m. MT on ESPN2.

Four years and three months after a rare form of pancreatic cancer almost took his life, BYU head basketball coach Dave Rose underwent surgery on Monday to remove "cancerous spots" discovered in Rose's most recent routine cancer screening.

Nate's Notes: Game Theory

Posted Sep 5th - 2:23pm by Nate Meikle, Sideline Reporter, Cougar Img Sports Network

If you want to hit it big in Vegas—maximize your potential payout and increase your chances of an early retirement—do the following: take your life savings and make one bet. Put all your money on red, or black for that matter. But the key is to make just one bet. And then walk away. Never come back.

That's exactly what Vegas doesn't want you to do. They want people to play over and over and over again. In the long run, they win. In the short run, stuff happens. For this reason a statistician might say that the "Go fast" portion of the new motto is the exact opposite of what BYU should do.

When one side has superior talent, knowledge, expertise, etc.—it wants to increase the number of repetitions in competition. Vegas wants you to play as much as possible; the superior basketball team wants to get "up and down." It hates the stall. In the long run, the better team wins. In the short run, it might not.

BYU Football with Bronco Mendenhall

Posted Sep 5th - 9:52am by Reggie Lewis, Contributor

PROVO — "BYU Football with Bronco Mendenhall" aired in front of a raucous crowd Wednesday night in the President's Loge at LaVell Edwards Stadium.

Coming off a tough loss at Virginia, Coach Mendenhall addressed the game and gave his assessment on what he learned about his team after watching the game film and what was the difference in the game.

"Our team played collectively harder than what I thought they were playing on Saturday," Mendenhall said. "If we are able to convert more on third down … I think the game becomes quite different."
