OK, so my sport-oriented mind says, that BYU--Provo need to tap into this fan
base and hold their annual Spring Game and training camps in Rexburg.I'd love to gather those students and create a larger BYU experience with 3
campuses nation-wide. Certainly the Bball team needs to play a game or two up
there as well.
Now that it is growing, Board of Directors, would you please, please, consider
bringing back at least some interscholastic sports?
Sorry. misnomer. I mean "intercollegiate" sports.
No, BYU-I needs to focus on academics. Athletic programs only make financial
sense, if they make any sense at all, if they are successful division 1
programs.And no, athletic programs are NOT needed for school unity
Add a sports program. This university could really go places.
You fellows are getting the causation arrows wrong.BYU-I is growing
BECAUSE it doesn't have intercollegiate sports.
There is absolutely no unity or pride at this school. In fact. I think 90
percent of the student population here would love to have sports. College is more than just academics, it should be the funnest time of your
life. All of my friends that have transfered to Provo are having a
blast. I'm joining them ASAP. Have fun with your honor code Rexburg.
With an enrollment of nearly 27,000, why would the school not consider bringing
back a sports program. This does bring unity to a school and the students. There
is so much that is positive about these added activities. The school once had
very good facilities for sports. It is time that these are brought back and
incorporated into the school.
... and drop intercollegiate sports.Football and basketball do not
help the mission of the university.And frankly, the last people who
should be consulted on any university decision are the students...
I would love to see NCAA sports at BYU-Idaho. It's a shame that such a large
school doesn't have any NCAA sports.
