Meh. I'm honestly almost post-sports at this time. I can't get excited about any spectator sports. I'm part of the reason why sports ratings are going down. I just can't get into it. Waste of time,...

Grimes as new OC

I don't really remember him from the old days. I remember the name vaguely but that's it.

With the new OC and new staff, the thing I wonder about is what exactly Sitake does as HC. How hands on is...

The gay rights movement has "won" in the US

so what is really left for the church to fight over?

Andrew Sullivan says the point of a civil rights movement is to end, because it has won.

well duh I know they are not all white. But I venture to say that they are and have been more white than most every time of a similar caliber.

Once the team went off the rails, this was bound to happen.

Being in a basketball conference with UVU and USU

makes a lot of sense. It would be heckuva lot more fun than playing no-name schools in high school gyms of non-consequence in California.

The WCC is a disaster for BYU basketball. I don't know...

Leach to TN - that would have been fun

I hope Leach goes somewhere one day to a premium program with a lot of resources.

No sense in him wasting his talents in the PAC 12 wasteland.

This is going to be the guy that the Ute fans hate. He has a chip on his shoulder. Some fire in the belly.

McKay Cannon

This kid looks good. Nice form/stroke. Looks high energy.

I think he's going to be a very important member of this team.

every one of them is married to a millennial.

That explains a few things.

I'm sad about this. I said earlier in the season that if Detmer were fired, I would be done with Sitake.

And I am.

I will not be rooting for a Sitake-led BYU. More and more I'm convinced the...

I usually keep BYU games on my DVR

at least the more interesting ones. Especially wins.

The only one on my DVR right now is the Hawaii game. THat's the game I'll leave on there, on the idea that I'll watch it later. Maybe next...

A&M is going to fire their Bronco

Sumlin never took them to the promised land. Thus, he is not the one.

At BYU, we grew tired of the same ol' thing every year. Playing crappy bowls, and often losing in them. Watching other mid...

The LP3 are officially the biggest flop in BYU history

In what should have been their peak season, only 1 of 3 is on the court. And not really making a huge impact, with a team that seems unlikely to make the Dance.

That's pretty low.

You would think they could at least run on this team, even if they put an extra guy in the box.

I'm afraid that if Critchlow has more games like that, he's going to get some pretty nasty nicknames.

UT Arlington

Looks to be a good team. Very well could end up in the dance.

But the way they came in and dominated. Not a good look for BYU.

BYU looked slow and out of sorts.

Again, chances of an at-large...

It's not that hard to look good when you have a dominant running game and your OL is not challenged by their defense.

Mangum probably would have had a very good game against pitiful UNLV.

I like Critchlow

Strong arm. I get the impression he has a good football head on his shoulders. Not the most mobile, but he's not a stiff either.

He reminds me of Peyton Manning. But of course without the moral...
