    I dislike BYU as much as the next guy

    But it is pretty classless to make fun of a guy who is helping one of our own, no matter where he went to school.

    The play is very funny. I haven't read the book. Mark Twain's review wasn't very positive.

    All men have heard of the Mormon Bible, but few except the “elect” have seen it, or, at least, taken the trouble to read it. I brought away a copy from Salt Lake. The book is a curiosity to me, it is such a pretentious affair, and yet so “slow,” so sleepy; such an insipid mess of inspiration. It is chloroform in print. If Joseph Smith composed this book, the act was a miracle—keeping awake while he did it was, at any rate. If he, accourding to tradition, merely translated it from certain ancient and mysteriously-engraved plates of copper, which he declares he found under a stone, in an out-of-the-way locality, the work of translating was equally a miracle, for the same reason.

    ...was tweeting out how utah and byu had very similar records in basketball? then the Utes went on to the sweet 16 and the cougs gave up 62 in one half of a play-in game?

    that was fun.

    I had the same thought, actually.

    Dr. Hill knows his emails are public, and he wanted to display a willingness to play them without actually having to play them. I don't think he wants to continue to play them. I understand he has said as much in private conversations. I think it was a p.r. move, and a smart one.

    Hey Shep, that 9.3 million is all from collected student athletic fees which counts as a 'state subsidy'

    So no, it wasn't 'given' any money from the state. Rather it collected ~$300 a student, which doesn't come from any taxpayer sponsored fund

    Sneaky Chris Hill according to strong fact based article, only wants to make it LOOK like Utah wants to play BYU to appease political pressure!

    OK . . . I'm sure he did this just for the press' benefit.

    I'd like to know which member of the media sent Chris Hill a lengthy

    Email advocating for the series.

    It seems pretty unprofessional to involve oneself that way. Sadly it's not hard to think of several local media types that would do that.

    Was out during the lunch hour and this came on the radio. Haven't heard it for years and was really enjoying the excellent instrumentation and vocals.

    When it was done all I could think of is "I'd like to see the rap/hip-hop idiots try and put together something like this."

    Stumbled on a pretty good article about Mottola while cheating on the quiz

    Desert News 8/28/14: Former Ute Hanno Mottola leads Finland to first-ever World Cup appearance

    Asked about recruiting

    “As a Finn, we can see through all the nice talks and all that. So the single thing is — don’t try to lie. Coach Majerus was the only one who, from the first phone call I had with him, told me what my weaknesses were instead of what I wanted to hear,” Mottola said.

    “Coach promised me two things: we are going to practice more and better than any other school, and we will eat more and better than any other school. Both of those came true. I developed into a pretty good player, and I got to go to the best restaurants around the country.

    “I will say — as I’m sure all my teammates will say as well — being a Runnin’ Ute were the best four years of my career.”

    BYU isn't a P5?! No, that's impossible.

    Trent Hosick, a JC quarterback who was committed to BYU but elected to stay at a JC school explains why.

    He’s hoping he can parlay a successful 2015 campaign into an offer from a power-five-conference school

    And there's more....

    While BYU and SDSU are, in Hosick’s words, “wonderful schools where I know I’d have a great college experience and win a lot of games,” neither is a perennial contender

    Man, that's gotta sting.

    Or Dres wanted a QB that will get the ball to him.

    Stewart was a decent passer, and, considering Wilson, we don't have much room to talk.

    • 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
