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…

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…

BYU 49, Tulsa 24 — Game recap

I figured I would have a throw back to the past and post something reminiscent to my “Den of Sports.” I was the Sports Editor my junior year of high school and had my own little “column” in which I waxed knowledgeable in sports.

BYU Football TV Coverage

So when the Mountain West Conference signed this deal with CSTV and this new MTN network, I was a little skeptical. Now, I’m just mad! They promised to have deals in place for the games to be broadcast on all the usual TV distribution outlets (Dish Network, DirecTV, and Comcast). Well, two of those deals…

It’s a girl!

Early this morning (2:30 AM), my wife wakes me up and says, “I’m contracting and I just threw up and I’m going in to the hospital to get checked out.” She’s done this before and so she said that she would go by herself and just come home in a few hours (after they told…

BYU was robbed!

I normally don’t blame the refs for a loss, but this one was ridiculous! So BYU lost to Cal 35-28. Admittedly, BYU didn’t play very well, but there were two crucial calls that were completely wrong. The two calls were even reviewed! One was even overturned by the guys upstairs. Of course the calls I…
