Re: Kalani Trying to be More Like Bronco

It is very tough to change a culture once created. The one thing KS has going for him in this instance is that it's easier when you have something like last year's record to point to as an explanation as to WHY you're changing the culture. It's easier to say, "We sucked last year, so we have to mak...

Re: Smart gun laws

Here's also another practical step. Double or triple the number of teachers. This will greatly reduce the number of students for whom teachers are responsible. The students will greatly benefit from the smaller class sizes. They'll have a better chance of making friends. And students who struggle wi...

Re: St. Mary's loses to USF

Head scratcher losses happen. The issue is when it happens more than once a season, which does seem to be the case for BYU. We have three bad losses on the season: LMU (rpi 281), Pacific (rpi 133), and UT Arlington (rpi 160). Our other loses on the season, SMC (rpi 35) twice, GU (rpi 38), and Alaba...

Re: Smart gun laws

We need individualized solutions not blanket restrictions on everyone. One proposal I heard was a "gun violence restraining order" that could be requested by family (or people living with them or treating them) and quickly granted by a judge.

Re: 2018 DL Preview

If Tonga can become more consistent he can very good. We need better production - especially in the pass rush category - from our ends.

Re: 2018 QB Preview

There isn't a BYU QB on the roster about whom I'm excited. I have no confidence in any of the right now.

For anyone still lauding Sitake's recruiting prowess and the return of the polynesian pipeline:

Re: Fred Warner invited to the NFL Combine

By most reports I saw, he had a good week of practice at the Senior Bowl. A good showing at the Combine could see him getting drafted.
