I really think the LP3 thing has created a bit of a schism.
BYU just doesn't look comfortable with themselves.

Hawk, please confirm that this was a fear I expressed back in October on one of our long Saturday runs.

Excellent point then, and one that unfortunately has come to fruition.

Honestly I think the rest of the Lone Peak 3 were never really as good as they were thought to be (with the exception of Mika) but were all made to look much better than they were by Frank Jackson.

No. I don't think that was it either. I don't think Jackson ever played w/ the LP3. This is Mika's and Emery's 4th year removed from high school and Jackson's first.

Frank Jackson was on the team that won the High school NC, which also had Mika on it. I don't know if Nick Emery was on that team too.

If he was, he was a small role player. That team was mainly the current LP3 with Talon Shumway.
