    Former Utah basketball player spreads hope from his battle with depression.

    It is good to see more people opening up about the truth of mental illness and depression.

    The whole thing is silly and irrelevant.

    With the changes in athlete benefits coming down the pipeline, BYU will be joining the American or Mountain West conferences soon enough, and that will guarantee that they are treated as a G5 program by the ACC. Being independent in football doesn't give BYU unilateral authority to adopt all of the changes about to be approved by the P5 conferences. Due to Title IX, no school can offer benefits to football players without offering them to all athletes.

    All BYU sports other than football are in the WCC and therefore beholden to WCC governance. If the WCC says no stipends for women's tennis, then BYU can't offer stipends for football. To offer the new benefits to football players, BYU has to be a member of a mid-major conference that approves all of the benefits that the P5 conferences approve, and the odds are extremely high that the WCC won't be approving millions of dollars in additional expenses designed to benefit football players that don't even exist in the WCC. It's only a matter of time before BYU joins the MWC or American; probably whichever conference approves the highest percentage of P5 benefit proposals.

    These changes are very real and they are coming down the pipeline at warp speed. If BYU doesn't find a way to match the new P5 benefits, they will fall behind in a way that will surprise even the most ardent BYU hater. If the WCC doesn't approve the changes, BYU will have no choice but to leave the WCC or watch football become pseudo-FCS. Neither the American nor the MWC are going to let BYU join without including football.

    Why this isn't the #1 topic of discussion on cougarbored beats the hell outta me. I guess they are all slow over there. Benefit approval is going to be the issue that defines the direction of BYU athletics in the coming year; they just don't realize it yet.

    A funny little story about Coach K

    So, after the decision had essentially been made Chris Hill and Larry sat down to discuss salary figures. No agents, no lawyers or whatever you would normally expect to see in a meeting regarding such things. Just Hill and Krystko.

    Dr Hill hands him an offer that was "about the average salary of all the Pac 12 coaches". Then he said, "Think it over, talk to your wife about it and get back to me"

    Larry comes back the next day with a fractionally larger amount written down and says "My wife says that I'm 'slightly better than average'"

    I love Coach K. Hope he's here for a very long time.

    In what world does CSU have an equivalent history as BYU? I can't speak for their facilities, but I would be surprised if they are as good as BYU's. CSU also has a much smaller fan base, although they are connected to a bigger media market. Look,

    I agree there's no reason why the B12 would invite BYU and I would be shocked if it happened, but that doesn't mean that BYU doesn't have some attractive selling points, particularly if being compared to MWC teams.

    I didn't get totally offended by the Garments post, and I attend LDS services at least 3 1/2 times a month. LOL

    When I told my wife someone posted pictures of Garments and was getting flamed she said, "The LDS church put out a video, what's the big deal?"

    So for those interested here is a link for the youtube video from the LDS church. Those not interested move on to another topic.

    • (NM) means No Message was included in the post, so don't bother clicking on it.
    • On the internet, there are people called "Trolls" -- not because they look like monsters -- but because they troll around different message boards, throwing out little baited hooks hoping to get a bite from some eager fish. And like any fisherman, the Trolls won't stay very long if no one bites
