It would have been strange had Max Hall been selected National Offensive Player of the Week (Walter Camp) and not won the weekly award in his own conference, so I'm glad the Mountain West tabbed Hall as the Offensive Player of the Week, for a second straight week. It's Max's third such honor in his 16 games as BYU's starting QB.
As you can see by checking the "Cougar Cuts" box to the lower right, audio is now available from the Bronco Mendenhall Press Conference, as well as player interviews with Max Hall and Jan Jorgensen. You also get (for no extra charge!) this morning's "Coach's Corner," as heard on KSL Newsradio's "Utah's Morning News with Grant and Amanda."
I asked Bronco about the number of big hits his guys have put on opposition players so far this season. By my count, upwards of ten opposing players have left the game with what I term "collision injuries." When asked about the "physical" identity his team has established, he told me "it's my favorite part."
By the way, if you watch highlights of the BYU-UCLA game, on the play where Scott Johnson takes out Raymond Carter (causing a fumble and causing Carter to leave the game), check out the coach giving the driving fist pump on the sidelines. Yeah, that's Bronco.
