Bronco admits even he may have become a bit complacent

BYU has started to play much better football as of late under head coach Bronco Mendenhall.

The Cougars are 4-5, but have won three of their last four games including a 55-7 win over UNLV last Saturday.

On Wednesday, Mendenhall admitted perhaps even he may have become a little complacent.

Mendenhall said, “Each you lose players and you gain players, sometimes critical stories are lost along the way, and if those stories aren't maintained, then you lose your culture."

"I could have done a much better job of making sure that the younger players had a better idea of what these stories were."

"What (this team) knew was '11-2, 11-2, 10-3, 11-2; this is BYU and that's just going to happen. Well, they now are in critical roles, and the burden and the opportunities shift to them."

"I didn't prepare them well enough, or they didn't understand well enough what I was asking them to do, what that was going to entail. We're getting closer."

BYU travels to Colorado State this weekend.
