Why is BYU successfull right now?

It’s all summed up in a single quote from BYU’s head coach, Bronco Mendenhall: “What’s happening here isn’t about me,” he says. “My ultimate goal is for my job to be expendable, where I could walk away from this program and have it continue on without missing a beat. We’re a lot closer to that…

For the last time – it was blocked!

So what’s all the controversy?  I’m so tired of hearing the reports of the BYU vs Washington game on Saturday.  All the ESPN analysts kept talking about the “controversial” call by the refs.  In reality, the call made no difference in the outcome of the game. The call came after Jake Locker scored what seemed…

I recently rediscovered the following clip. It’s one of the funniest clips I’ve seen (or heard) from The Onion. NASCAR Coach Reveals Winning Strategy: ‘Drive Fast’

Murphy vs Bonds — Dale takes the gloves off

Dale Murphy recently fired out at Barry Bonds for his “unknowingly” taking performance enhancing drugs.  I was shocked at the public display of, well, hatred he has toward Bonds. “…  I’ve heard the last few weeks, that that he’s being treated unfairly. You know, life just usually isn’t like that. You don’t usually get treated…

Boring BYU

Is it just me, or are the BYU football games getting boring? The last 4 or so games, I have watched, but not really enjoyed. There are some good plays, but very little along the lines of great or amazing plays. There is no drama because they are blowing out their opponents. This last game…

Awww Yeah! BYU 31, TCU 17

Wow! What an amazing game for Mendenhall and the BYU Football Team! Talk about a ground breaking and fantastic game. Of course, this being one of the most important games in recent BYU football history, I didn’t get to watch it. I was still at work. We released a new version of our product this…

BYU 38, USU 0 — Yawn

This wasn’t the most exciting game and to be honest, I didn’t watch all of it. I missed several parts and didn’t really care much about the game. I knew (or at least expected) it to be a blow out. Just a few surprises. The USU running back, Marcus Cross, had a very admirable game…

BYU vs Utah State Preview

I failed to write a summary for BYU’s loss to Boston College.  My prediction was somewhat close although I was not expecting double overtime.  I was disappointed in the play of BYU.  They looked really pretty good the first half.  Everything seemed to be flowing as expected.  There was nothing spectacular, but definitely consistent. The…
