    Honor Code,

    Thanks for the nice comment! Who knows, team affiliations aside, maybe we coulda been friends.

    Kelly, now is the time to get this team going. I hope the LB's wreak havoc on the Tulsa QB and RB's. Finish strong and next year will be a fun year to watch.

    While I'm no BYU fan, I do enjoy the Poppinga brothers.....they played with finesse and class on the field and were Wyoming tough. Too bad they didn't end up being Wyoming Cowboys!

    Poppinga is doing fine. BYU has a very good linebacker corp. When one guy is out, another steps in and the team does not miss a beat.

    As a coach, rest time is called paid vacation. He will get some and likely work in a recruiting trip or two at the same time.

    Go Cougars.

    I am not loving the 24/7 365 thing. Ouch.

    He needs a bit of a break. No wonder coaches burn out so quickly.

    No wonder the linebackers have been strong all year.

    Way to be Kelly.

    Go Cougars!
