Have they ever heard of Gator-aid?


Sara Hartley MUST be a Utah fan.... This is a classic.


You must not read the whole article, Question.



In the article it stated, "stops muscle cramps faster than sports drinks and more effectively than water alone." They have a Gator-Aid bottle in the picture.

tds players complaining of cramps? And I thought men played football


Hedgehog: does your day consist of waking up, checking for BYU articles
To criticise, eat, check again, sleep, check again..... watch tv... check again...
And then again the next day?
Its getting pretty funny...
You and Chris B.....


So how many stories have been written about this topic now?


Pickle is well known to aleviate cramps. Gatoraid keepes a person hydrated. Hedgehog, your posts are classic. Dosen't sound like a Utah fan to me. I think this gal as some class.

Sorry, I know I said I would give BYU a break for a while, but:

What is sour and green with envy?


It's not pickle juice. It's BYU Fans.

Pickle juice just might be the Blue's secret weapon that will push us over the edge to beat them Utes!

Pickle juice... Ummm.... who woulda thought?

This story is so cute... and it never gets old even after the 10th or 12th time the DN resurrects it.

PAC man

Looks like the BYU haters are having so much fun rolling around in the pickle juice that we should just leave them alone.

The last BYU fan should cork the barrel as you leave.

Monsieur le prof

This seems too obvious, but the Gatorade bottle is labeled "Picklejuice" so as to make it readily identifiable.
Sports drinks are actually more beneficial after the game or practice rather than during it.


I'm surprised Vlasic, Claussen, or some other pickle company doesn't jump on this as a selling point or an ad campaign!

SLC gal

This has to be one of the weirdest things I have ever heard of, but I guess whatever floats their boat?

Dear posters, Please ask yourself if you actually edify anyone or anything when writing these posts. Can you say you have a positive influence in this world or are you only contributing a negative emptiness. I hope some of these writers would learn baiting with or being drawn into a morass of innuendo, putdowns or self aggrandizing diatribe does not contribute to anyones edification. Throwing dirt on someone else just means you are digging a deeper hole for your self. And when you find your self in a hole of contempt, bitterness and cynicism...the first thing you need to do is stop digging. If you get bit by a rattlesnake, don't hunt the snake, get the poison out...ignore the negative spewers, don't respond to them, don't reecognize them, don't feed negatives back into the system.
Since Lavell Edwards became headcoach I have watched BYU achieve greatness. I have seen hardtimes and great times for this team. It's the team I support because of what they want to be not what they have achieved. Tradition, Spirit, Honor.


amen to Howard and LMB, How many times do we have to hear this one?


I heard about this years ago. I officiate sports and I drink pickle juice before each and every contest. I've only cramped up once in the last five years.


I've heard that pickle juice also helps a team cover the opponent's tight ends. Give it a shot Utes - it certainly couldn't hurt!


Not only that, but the pickle breath will stun the defenders and allow the BYU running backs to burn that school up North!

Just think of banging helmets with a guy with nasty pickle breath! Awesome!

Goooooo COUGARS!
