Racism at BYU: Your observations?

I ask because of the recent BYU survey and recommendations. https://www.deseret.com/faith/2021/2/26/22303466/official-committee-says-byu-must-root-out-racism-without-delay-provo-utah I attended BYU with a few years off here and there from 1976 to 1984. My dad immigrated to the United States when he ...

Re: Impeachment Witness Found Dead

I was going to say the Bill and Hillary are about 25 years late for this one.

Re: Bracketology

I think more than anything if we had a consistent history of winning those games and going into the second week we would not keep getting stuck there. Just keep winning! Go Cougs KYCOUG Louisville, KY I know I can look this up, but didn't we win our last play-in game? I thought that's the one we ca...

Re: Ty Jordan, Utah football player past away

Holidays are a tough time for many people, particularly those who have suffered family losses during the rest of the year. As I recall, Ty's mom passed away earlier this year. Perhaps he was having trouble coping. To echo Hawkwing, it's a terrible tragedy no matter what the reason.

Re: Where Do You Rank Wilson?

The stats were good. USC and Tennessee were signature wins. But I think he'll be remembered most being the quarterback during the up and down Sitake seasons and the Pandemic.

Broadway Zach Wilson?

If Jacksonville takes Trevor Lawrence with the first pick, will the Jets then take Zach Wilson with the second?

Wilson has a lot of confidence. He might thrive in the New York limelight.

"Unfortunately, USU's president would disqualify him on religious and cultural bases."

Impressed

Nice, well-balanced win against Utah. I was wondering when Johnson would find his rhythm. This was a good bounce-back from what I hope will be the most disappointing game of the year.

Re: HOSED

This is yet another example of the reason why I enjoy college basketball more than college football: The college football playoff is an elitist championship controlled by a few individuals looking to protect their own. March Madness gives the smaller schools and conferences the chance to compete eve...
