When forward &lt;b&gt;Blas Perez&lt;/b&gt; was sent off in the 45th minute, things were breaking RSL’s way.

But when he did, he often repeated a simple phrase when asked for a progress report on his 10th team as the BYU Cougars’ head coach. “I like my team,” Mendenhall would say. “I like it a lot.” Mendenhall would go on to describe the unprecedented depth at almost every position, saying there has been more competition for starting spots than he can ev...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
