Re: School of the prophets? Sorry long.

I am late on this topic but I thought I would give my thoughts about activity and people leaving. Over the past 15 years I have lived in the same city and stake. I have served in 3 EQ presidencies and in stake callings. I have noticed a huge trend of strong families leaving. On top of that I have m...

Re: Zack Wilson

It's probably just because I have glory day memories and long for the good old days, but Wilson's dropback and body language reminded me a lot of Jim McMahon. I thought the same thing on his first long throw when he overthrew the receiver. I thought, “That looked like Jim McMahon.” That would be gr...

Re: Step off the LEDGE!!

I have stepped off the ledge. I'm done with this coaching staff. At best, I see Sitake as another Whittingham that can motivate to win some big games, but never coach consistent winners. I'm ready to see what we could do with someone else. And I would have been fine with Ken N's option, or the Stand...

Re: Am I Over Reacting as a Parent?

Too often leadership gets it wrong and thinks that letting a boy plan an activity means not reminding them of important things like hearing protection. That would irk me to no end. I suggest following Sno’s advice. Read the links so you can speak intelligently about your concerns.

I usually tell them the Lord often sends His prophets among the most wicked. But look at where they send their grandkids. Mostly BYU.

Re: Is the top 25 ranking a blessing or a curse?

It definitely puts a target on your back, but it's something they need to work through to continue to advance. It's so unusual for a BYU team to be 2-1 and ranked in the top 25. I think it took a huge bunch of us by surprise. I think it shows how independence has helped, and outside of last year, B...

Re: Ralph is a little concerned about the defense

It was BAD. And a lot of those were on 3rd and LONG. Actually 3rd and Long wasn't that bad. It even improved over the previous year fairly significantly. Here's how opponents have done on 3rd and Long since I started tracking it in 2006 (listed in order from best to worst): 2012: 13 of 87 (.149) 20...

Re: The "Mormon Moment" is officially over.

I guess I have a different view on it. I like the changes. It is a reminder for me to be a little bolder, and recognize that it is Jesus Christ's restored Church. I shouldn't shy away from that fact when talking about it with others, but I realize others have a different feeling about it.
