    I feel like every time this story is told by BM it gets further and further from the truth.... really insulting to anyone in that room. Oh well. Here’s to football at Scott Stadium in 2020.

    "and in that first meeting - I showed the team a football. they all cowered in fear - like vampires being shown the cross. wretched victims of torment they were. without hope. or love. until I saved them.

    i think maybe nick grant(?) parroted bronco in an interview and used the "embarrassed to show our faces around campus" line. a few of guys from the 2-10 team didn't like that.

    I feel like the piece that he may be missing (or not stating) is that everyone in that room was recruited by a coach who was just booted and thought he was probably full of shit.

    I think the team was really eager. Respected ML but ready for a new voice and vision. And they got one from a proven winner. So when it’s characterized as they didn’t even want to play the game (!) or represent the university... just patently false.

    Micah Kiser, Quin Blanding, etc was a nucleus of high character and talented players who wanted to be shown how to win, not in “despair” and afraid to compete, GMAFB

    What IS true about BM’s narrative is that every aspect of the program from a resource standpoint was well below what he calls “industry standard”. I have no doubt he was sold a foul bill of goods from the admin and he was eager to benefit from the resources of “power 5 football” and when he walked in McCue, they weren’t there.

    Apparently UCLA is trying to poach Carla now. Get off our nuts, UCLA.

    Sometimes I find this thread through google when I can't find it on the board and the first page posts are so funny.

    “I love habits, I love learning,” he said. “I think a Zoom screen can reflect intent. I think it can prove intent. So we ask our players to prove their intent by what the screen looks like. I’m talking about lighting, I’m talking about notebooks, I’m talking about pens, I’m talking about what they’re wearing.

    “So, we have Zoom rules and we hold them accountable to those Zoom rules,” Mendenhall added. “I’m not currently evaluating practice but what I can evaluate is their intent to learn in not what they’re saying but just by looking at the screen.”
