After Wednesday's practice, Bronco Mendenhall was asked if his team was ready for Georgia Tech. He quickly replied, "No, we're not; we could use another week."

Coach Mendenhall knows his defense will have its work cut out for them against Georgia Tech's spread-option offense, but it seems he's willing to concede yardage if he can keep the Yellow Jackets out of the end zone. "I'm only concerned about points," Bronco said. "Their rushing yards and passing yards don't matter to me. The points is what matters."

**************

Unless you've been under a rock, you've probably heard some criticism from fans regarding the BYU offense. Offensive coordinator Brandon Doman is well aware of the what's expected out of a BYU offense. "I know what the expectation is for the execution here," Doman said. "There really aren't any excuses or any explanations other than matching that execution. I like the plan, I like the scheme, I like where we're going; it's just taking us a while to get there after the last six weeks."
