I completely agree with your sentiment. A shame that most of what gets posted is personal and angry instead of a thoughtful and rational. Not sure why discussion of a game provokes downright acrimony, but it seems that it does. Anyway, appreciate your thoughtful comment.

I'm a Ute fan, but have coached kids on BYU's roster, so I follow BYU with great interest and wish them every success. Will simply agree to disagree with you on the issue of where Dr. (you are correct, he's earned that distinction) Chow would do the most good.

Relax pardner. I'm not a threat to the country's food supply. If it helps, my wife would agree that I don't know what I'm talking about most of the time. Blogging is pretty much all spouting off, don't you think?

I probably should have edited my comment, so as not to convey something I didn't intend. By "typical" I was referring to BYU's preference for pro style QBs. My comment was not intended to say that all BYU QBs have been slow and weak: they haven't been obviously. I stand by my opinion of Heaps. I give him full credit for having superior QB mechanics, which is why he was so highly rated coming out of high school as a pro style QB. However, scouting evaluations also said he needed to improve arm strength. It makes sense given that his max bench is little more than two plates and his squat little more than three. His poor core strength also necessarily means that he's relatively slow, which is not unusual for a pocket passing pro style QB. He could improve, if he'd get in the weight room consistently.

I have a feeling our buddy Norm is going to "Chow" on opposing defense. Hehe.

Actually, BYU's athletic budget may be more for their overall sports programs, but they do not pay as much for their football coaches. It is a private school, so they do not release that info, but my uncle is a professor there, knows all the ins and outs of the football program as he played there in the 70's and 80,s, and grew up with Cecil Samuelson, and I know for 100% certaainty that Bronco, Anae, Hill, now Doman Dupaix etc. do not get paid even close to what UTE coaches get paid. Even some of SDSU's coaches get paid a lot more than the Y's coaches. The UTES made a great hire bringing in Chow for a few years to help the transition into the Pac 12. All these ZOOBIES that say 3-5 try to spin it their way & how they want. It is 2-3, 4-7, 5-8, and 6-9. Next year it will be 3-4, and 7-10. I can do it to. GO UTES!!!!!!!!!
