BYU Football coach Bronco Mendenhall continues to show more of his human side. First he decided to embrace social media opening up his own twitter account. He also has been more available to the media this off season and now he’s getting face painted. Mendenhall got face paint at BYU’s Fan Fest in Sandy, Utah Wednesday.
Personally, I like the new friendlier Mendenhall. It actually shows he has a personality as opposed to being so robotic as many have accused him to be over the years. While I commend him I also believe it’s orchestrated considering the heat he receive from the disappointment of last season. In the end though, it will take more than face paint to win back the bitter fans that hold him responsible for the offensive struggles last season and the loyalty he showed to a clearly injured quarterback in Riley Nelson.
