Cougar Kickoff Countdown: 98 Days

98 days days "You have to be dead or something"

George Frey

98)       YOU HAVE TO BE DEAD OR SOMETHING

Towards the end of LaVell Edwards coaching career in Provo speculation began generating that Cougar Stadium would be renamed after him. In 1998 Edwards put his two cents into the debate:

"It's never going to happen. I don't have any feeling about that one way or another. You have to be dead or something."

Cougar Stadium was renamed LaVell Edwards Stadium prior to his final home game as head coach November 18, 2000.
