The other thing he fails to realize...

Posted By: Diehard Ute
Date: Wednesday, June 30, 2010 at 01:08 am

...is that not every "member" of the LDS Church cares about BYU.

Many care about *gasp* Utah.

Of course, he also fails to grasp the even bigger problem with his argument, it doesn't matter how many total *members* there are. It matters how many MONEY spending members there are.

Doug fails to realize his argument is exactly WHY BYU gets so little respect. They represent a single religion, and not even all of that religion.

Notre Dame has a ton of fans outside of the Catholic church...I don't think the same can be said about BYU (And I don't think it will ever be said about BYU given the reactions I get when I travel to away games and people ask about BYU)

Now, to get back to athletics, Doug shows a bias. He calls BYU the best program in the MWC...yet Utah and TCU have made BCS games, BYU hasn't. Utah and BYU have the same number of MWC titles, that's some domination there Doug.

He says BYU has been a top 20 team since the 70's...well, that's sort of a stretch there Doug....in 33 years they've been ranked 17 times at the end of the season...11 of those 17 were from 1977 to 1994. In the last 15 years? 6.

20,000 seats? Apparently in Doug's world it's quantity over quality. Obviously Doug hasn't been on Utah's campus in 6 months to see the track being built.

The "small" sports...it's interesting to note he touts Volleyball and Soccer, two sports Utah is on equal ground or superior to BYU in in the last 5 years. He totally ignores gymnastics, a sport that the Pac-10 is quite powerful in...and a sport that BYU, well, sucks in. Hey Doug "across the board" means EVERYTHING, you don't get to ignore the stuff that BYU can't compete in.

Then we get to his whining about 'fair'. Well Doug, life isn't 'fair' is it? That's why you're stuck writing columns for the Deseret News instead of writing for the New York Times...but I'm sure in reality it's just because you refuse to grow a beard and won't write on Sunday...right Doug?
