08:27 AM ET 10.09 | An unnecessary play has undone an encouraging season in Provo. BYU football coach Bronco Mendenhall and offensive coordinator Brandon Doman both took responsibility Monday for the needless running play in which freshman quarterback Taysom Hill suffered a season-ending knee and hamstring injury in Friday's 6-3 win over Utah State. "It is our fault as coaches for not communicating clearly," Mendenhall said. Head athletic trainer Jeff Hurst confirmed that the hit Hill took on the third-to-last play of the game, when he could have taken a knee, caused damage to the lateral collateral ligament (LCL) in his left knee, hyperextended the joint and damaged a hamstring tendon.

LMFAO, Florida win a tough game and all of a sudden their #1. The Gators still have to play South Carolina, Georigia, (Louisiana-Lafayette, Jacksonville State, LOL.) and FSU and then maybe a SEC CG. I still don't think it's fair that Florida plays two weak OOC games right before playing FSU.

USC lost to Stanford!!! Would you call Stanford an inferior team???? Again who is this "WE" you are talking about, is it LSU or Florida??? Don't go breaking your ankle by jumping on and off the LSU bandwagon. :-)

Really? You think so Mendenhall? What kind of idiot risks injuries like that when taking a knee is the correct call?? Shoot...forget injuries...what about a turn over run that costs you the game?? Not like that hasn't happened in the past. Seriously, the AD should take you to the woodshed and evaluate your mental competence as a football coach. What an idiot.

The former Rutgers coach (Greg Schiano) who now coaches TB, that's what kind of idiot risks injuries instead of taking a knee. He doesn't believe in the kneeldown play!
