BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall's postgame comments
After BYU beat the you-know-what out of the Texas Longhorns on Saturday night, coach Bronco Mendenhall finished his postgame interview session by addressing a question about whether he likes to see quarterback Taysom Hill run so much.
"I like the way he ran. I didn't like the way he didn't slide. We both smiled at the one [where he didn't, late in the game], and he was like, 'yeah, i know, i know, but .. crap,'" Mendenhall said.
A other answers from Mendenhall:
On what he said during the delay to the team:<
So, if we get another delay, maybe we will play even better."
On the emotional swing and keeping the guy even-keeled:
"We weren't even-keeled. It was a hard week. It was a hard loss a week ago. We translated that into work. We worked them hard this week. They wanted to be worked hard. That gave them the chance to play like this, but there was nothing even-keeled about this.
Then the point where we finally got to the game, and the delay, it was just like, c'mon. All we could do was laugh. But eventually, they were ready."
On the biggest difference from last week to this week's game offensively:
"We prepared better. We prepared harder. We prepared longer. We prepared more diligently as coaches and players. Again, our practice model from Monday through Thursday, in my opinion, is what the difference was. "
