    Here's what I think about Bronco leaving.

    "He's bringing consistency and he's bringing in simplicity and he's bringing in a mind-set of staying the course."
    "Once you have a symbol that reflects greatness, it should not be changed, ... Consistency is key to a lasting tradition."
    "He's a tremendous worker and a tremendous person. "
    "There's no way to know what to expect. It's far greater than that, it's a tremendous responsibility."
    "He usually calls to check in."
    Coach T-1000

    Bronco realizing that if he went to Kentucky, he wouldn't have to play Utah again.

    No one here may find this funny, but UK is in talks with Bobby Petrino .. if he became the head coach, the following would be kind of funny.

    Pitino coached UK basketball to a NC then left for the Celtics
    Pitino then went to Louisville greatly angering UK fans

    Louisville hired Petrino and he took them to a top program
    Petrino too left for greener pastures
    UK may hire Petrino as the next head coach

    Kind of nerdy to find that funny, I guess .. but I do.

    You think they'll hire him? Kind of a sleazy dude, no?

    Yes, he is. I would have said NO chance. Most are not happy there are even any talks.

    Having said that, a good friend of mine says the two parties are talking and UK is being heavy handed in penalties for anything less than being a model citizen. In the end, UK isn't a great job and I see him saying no thanks because we'll be too demanding. He is the best available, but I'm not crazy about the idea.

    I don't see him getting a better job, If UK offers the job I say he takes it in a heartbeat, unless like you said there are demands he knows he cant live up to.

    I'd hate it if I were a UK fan. Basically guaranteed to end badly.

    Like I said, I don't like it .. I do trust the A.D. and the search committee, though .. whoever they hire, I'll support as they will have done their homework.

    I've never heard of him interviewing and/or turning down positions offered to him. Which schools has he turned down?

    Bronco could never recruit in the deep south. The guy has the personality of a moth ball. Roscoe has no chance when walking into the same houses that guys like Nick Saban and Les Miles are walking into. Give him credit though, he knows this. I don't think he is built to coach at another program. You'll probably see him entering another field once he decides to leave Provo.
