Doman takes the blame for BYU's second-half failures in red zone

< Previous Page

"No," he said. "There are so many lessons [from history]. Having played Northern Iowa, Eastern Washington. Well, my wife is a fan of college football now, and so she was watching the games and I think Northern Iowa played somebody really close, Wisconsin, and man, any given week [anything can happen]. And again, our approach already isn't about who we are playing, we have so much we can improve on, etc.

I sure hope there is no thought that way. There certainly isn't on my part."

Here are a couple of Mendenhall's comments from last night's media session:

On what Weber State looks like on film:

"I really like their quarterback. He's gritty and tough and a good scrambler. They have quarterback runs in their system. He's tough. I like him. They played Fresno 24-10, and a pretty tight game through about halfway through the fourth quarter. The final score really wasn't indicative. But yeah, I think they are coached well, and I like a lot of things that they do."

On the offense Weber State runs:

"Spread offense, so they will have three and four receivers, with the quarterback zone read, and stuff. Then they have some two-back, left over from coach Mac, and power, those kind of physical run game approaches. So, some changes from before, and some things have carried over. ... Weber State's quarterback, from similar formations, if he doesn't like what he sees, he's a running threat."

On what they can improve on after watching WSU film:

"Teamwise, we can clean up some special teams a little bit. We had a long kick return against us, so we need to fit our lanes a little bit better. Our punt protection on one particular punt could have been shored up. PAT and field goal protection, even though none were blocked, I thought that could have been improved. Blue-zone scoring and offensively in terms of touchdowns rather than field goals. We missed a field goal.

A couple times defensively our guys didn't plaster, or didn't stay on their receivers well enough as the quarterback had time to scramble around and made a couple of long throws that way. So those are just some random things that came to mind."

On how Blair Tushaus graded out at center:
