BYU head coach Kalani Sitake had his weekly press conference Monday morning. Much of the press conference revolved once again around the offensive struggles. Speaking to this point, Kalani said, “patience is not my best virtue either. I want to win and I want to be good now and I want to score lots of points... You’re never really satisfied as a coach.” (3:10 mark)
Among other things, Kalani also discussed Tanner Mangum’s ankle injury that he suffered the last offensive play. (11:42 mark) Tanner reportedly had a MRI exam today, and Coach Sitake said that as of noon MST, no confirmation had been given regarding Tanner’s ankle.
Ty Detmer added to this by saying on Monday’s Coordinators’ Corner that he thought Tanner would be good to go.

Kalani said in the press conference that he doesn’t like to comment on injuries — unless they are season ending — so coaches may not give too much info regarding Tanner’s status as a way to tip off Wisconsin.
