Holly, on behalf of the level headed few BYU fans on CB, I want to apologize for how some people have treated you and your family. I recognize that although your husband makes good money, it isn't close to "market value" when compared to others that have accomplished or even haven't accomplished at other major programs (show me a HC at another major program that averages 10 wins a season and makes what Bronco makes). I know everyone likes to perform employee evaluations of your husband online and they assume that he never changes anything (even though he has fired or encouraged a few members of his staff to leave, changed the nutrition and off season work out program, changed schemes on D to fit the talent, etc...) when in reality he does change things but not based on fan support, but after doing a thorough evaluation of the situation and program and it's needs. I am sorry that even though your husband has a higher winning percentage than any other BYU football coach in history that those facts never seem to be enough. I am sorry that people think that all your husband ever does is beat cup cakes while past BYU coaches beat all the powerhouses, even though this couldn't be further than the truth (CB do your self a favor and go look at BYUs record when "we were good" and check out the fact that back then we played 1 to 2 "decent" BCS programs a year and the rest of the sched consisted of the WAC sched along with schools like Long Beach St, Fullerton St, North Texas St, etc.....AND ignore the fact that we typically LOST a "pansy" game every year, and rarely won our bowl games). I apologize that your husband, although, has a reputation for "not working hard enough" probably spends as much or more time trying to develop these young men not only into good football players, but good you men, things like firesides, councelling to go on missions, councelling for marital problems, councelling for honor code and academic issues, etc... I apologize that although your husband works for a religious institution that is run by and has a majority of its fans as "Christian" that, even though they don't say "bad words" the garbage that is spewed means the same thing. I hope you recognize that what you see on CB is a vocal minority that tends to think that the more often they complain and whine and the louder they get the better chance they have if getting their way. This thought process continues into their thinking it is rational to rip on any little sentance or statement that is given by either Bronco, anyone in his staff, a current or former player or any member of his family. I also apologize that some fans are so delusional that they think that BYU should have as good or better program than Texas, Oklahoma, USC, LSU, Alabama, etc (but only in their good years) but at the same time be part of school that is owned by a peculiar religion, The Mormon Church, located in the cold mountains of the thriving state if Utah and has an honor code that makes you practically live like a nun during your peak sexual years and doesn't let you take a sip of alchohol or coffee (yes, you can't even have a Starbucks) as well as many other restrictions, even if you aren't a member of said "peculiar religion". Oh, and not only are you supposed to be as good as those top programs at their peak every year, but you need to do it while NEVER cheating or breaking any NCAA rule, in other words, your husband is being asked to do something that has never been done before (since we all know that practically every major program that has won the NC lately has had NCAA violation in the past). Yep, fans are asking Bronco to work a miracle and I am sorry.
Holly, I basically am telling you "thank you" for giving us fans your husband. There are countless hours he spends away from you and the kids doing things that aren't required of any big time football coach in the country but he does it because he wants and expects BYU to be viewed in the public in a positive light. He does it because he recognizes that if there were major problems in the program it would reflect poorly on BYU, the LDS church and even all of us fans. And most of all he does it because he loves the kids and wants what is best for them.
