    My father-in-law, NOT a zoob, sees byu football as it really is. He just turned 85, so he's seen A LOT of byu football. His summation of their situation both past and present is

    that "byu was an embarrassment at football the whole time I grew up, while I attended college there, for another 20 years after I left there, and they are terrible now."

    "The only time they've been any good at all, was during Lavell Edwards' tenure."

    I tried to console him after family home evening, reminding him that they went to a bowl game last year, that they are 4-0 right now, and that there's a chance they could go undefeated.

    His response, "Oh, that'd be just dandy if they were in a good conference, or in any conference for that matter. Their schedule is so poor, it's like beating up old people in a hospital! They'll wind up in some garbage bowl game again."

    We then both laughed uncontrollably. Maybe you had to be there to fully appreciate the moment, but it was pretty choice.

    It's just you... we're all huge fans of KSL's coverage of sports in this state.

    Greg Wrubell is a genius, and you should really get caught up on the Trib's Gordon Monson's great coverage of all things Ute.

    We can only hope that someday our humble program will be held in the same esteem as the glorious embodiment of all that is good in college football, the noble Cougars of Brigham Young University.

    I think I just broke something inside myself...

    The zoobs don't play dirty. Bronco says this is just "fanatical effort" and playing "on the edge", both of which he encourages.

    Bronco calls cheap shots and late hits "aggression penalties" and has no plans to correct them. BYU is currently the single most penalized team in college football (seriously - #1), and they aren't coming from false starts or delay of game.

    It's ironic that so many zoobs racistly refer to black players on other teams as "thugs" when their team has more dirty players and thuggish behavior than any other team in the country.

    Update on my cool, non-zoob father-in-law. This morning he reminded me of a story about my mother-in-law (rest her soul). In the early 50's she was a very attractive Cougarette. One Saturday afternoon as her group was taking the field, she sat down

    next to her future husband. He looked startled and asked her why she wasn't on the field with the rest of her squad. She looked at him and simply said, "The football team is 0-8, soon to be 0-9. I refuse to go out there and march for those losers."

    He couldn't jump because the defender was pulling his jersey.

    A bit of advice: SOS isn't your best argument this year. Stick with the Taysom hype.

    According to the refs you are wrong. The play was whistled dead long before the third push happened. The refs hit them with a personal foul penalty that killed the drive.

    EDIT: I went and watched the play via ESPN3. The ball actually hit the ground before the second push, so the third push was extremely egregious.

    • (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
