    They never really wanted the Big-12 anyway.

    by midnightversion
    2015-07-24 12:19:57 html?id=14322020

    I was thrilled at the prospect a couple of years ago, yet currently find myself not interested in the idea.
    A few problems I see with the Big 12 and BYU:

    ·The big 12 seems to be a conference with very little cohesion, sense of direction or organization. They don't seem to agree on anything.

    .Texas calls all the shots, struts around like a clock in a hen house and all the other members cannot stand them for it.

    ·There seems to be an annoying good old boy Texas faction w/in the conference.

    . We would fall in the middle of the conference which would mean almost yearly losses to a handful of teams...we would find out what it felt like to be a san Diego st, Wyoming or Air Force of the WACMWC days of the past few decades.

    ·We would become a perennial whipping boy for tcu.

    ·The religious bigotry directed at BYU from all the southern institution would be unlike anything we have ever seen. It would remove most of the fun of the competition for me.

    ·We would have to play half of our yearly games in the fetid, swampy humidity of the south in boring, uninspiring destinations.

    ·The conference could easily implode in the coming many teams will bolt for greener pastures when a better situation arises?

    ·The big12 seems to be endowed with an inordinate share of crazy, bigoted, greedy southern "gentleman".

    ·Much of the freedom BYU now enjoys would instantaneously evaporate with inclusion into a conference with a bunch of bigoted, greedy people who never really wanted us there in the first place.

    The benefits I see are increased money (honestly, BYU does pretty well on its own.) And secondly, inclusion into the "haves". Admittedly, this is a significant benefit...however the fear that BYU could slip into irrelevance or even scrap the program in my opinion is ludicrous...If we win most of the games we are supposed to and a handful that we are not, and put together a special season every 5-10 yrs, independent BYU football won't be going anywhere soon.

    I say stick with Indy, but make the necessary changes to the program that are needed to take its success to the next level.

    I need some help.

    2015-03-24 19:08:40

    As some of you know, I work with adolescents in behavioral health. As part of my job, I have been asked to give a drug prevention presentation to a junior high school that has had a recent inundation of drugs. I am in the process of cobbling together some ideas that would grab their attention.

    The area I live in is Utah Utes country. This is especially true with school-age kids. Utah is the trendy team to follow. I am wondering if and how I could go about getting a one-minute, personalized greeting and message about drug prevention from Coach Whitt. I would imagine he could easily have someone record it for him and then it could be emailed to me.

    I know this would be a huge success and homerun for the kids. Is this a possibility? If so, how would I best go about doing it?

    Thanks in advance for any helpful feedback. And for the bear and Mac comments.

    But if you get a chance, tune into ESPN and watch some great bowling.

    As many of you know I had a real shot at turning professional. It's still my first love -- even over football. If I had started earlier in my life it would have made the difference.

    Anyway, watch for Tom Hess to make a veteran stand against a young and talented Martin Larsen. Hess has seen it all and can't be surpised. Larsen will have to wait another year to have his chance in the spotlight. It's a old bull and young bull sort of thing

    That being said, I would take a good look at Russell Hardy. He runs an innovative offense that would be tailored to suit Isom. He's got enough college level experience that it wouldn't be too much for him, but not so much that he's on everyone's radar. He's had success in at the high school and college levels.

    A question about anxiety......

    by midnightversion
    2014-12-01 12:35:03

    When recovering from alcoholism, post acute withdrawal syndrome usually peaks at about six months, but can last much longer than that. At just before six months (Nov. 1st) my anxiety pegged. It lasted about a week then went away for a bit and is now back in full force. I hardly enjoyed my Thanksgiving weekend. I have had obsessive thoughts about something being wrong with me. The slightest twinge of pain has sent me spiraling into anxiety attacks. A few days ago I woke up with a scratch on my forehead and thought it was skin cancer.

    I know how silly this all sounds, and when I look at it objectively, I know it's all anxiety-based. But it's hard to convince yourself of that when you're in the middle of it. So, my question is: How much physical pain can manifest itself in anxiety and where is that pain usually located?I have been hampered with back pain -- all over. It hasn't been excruciating, but it's been enough to make me worry (the anxiety thing again).

    Does anyone have any personal experience with this? If so, can you share some of it so that I know I am not losing my mind?
