BYU Media Day: Bronco Mendenhall on the Jim Rome Show (AUDIO)

One of the national interviews that took place during BYU Football Media Day was head coach Bronco Mendenhall talking with Jim Rome on the Jim Rome Show.

Rome has always been a fan of Mendenhall.  Back in 2008, Rome spoke with Bronco after BYU defeated UCLA 59-0.  Rome became fascinated with Mendenhall and his approach as a head football coach and every year Rome has made Bronco a regular on his show.  Rack him! One of the questions from Rome to Mendenhall was: “Do the positives of independence outweigh the negatives?” Mendenhall’s response:

The positives do outweigh….for now.  It’s a launch point.  Only 14 teams have been seen more since we went independent, the last three years.  We went independent primarily for exposure.  Our ESPN exclusive partnership has given us a great advantage in terms of getting more difficult schedules.  However, we need at some point to use independent as a launch point from and towards inclusion in terms of this break off that is financially driven.
