Lore. A word depicting tradition, miracle bowls, national championship, beating the # 1 team, multiple QBs succeeding in the NFL, Heisman Trophy, Answered prayers, Ute defenders tackling each other, Going independent, 10 win seasons. LaVell Edwards. That is lore.

Maybe we can make a T shirt that states, "lose your helmet and become a legend."

No, because his helmet came easily off I don't see that as legeand. All season BYU players have had their helmets come off, makes me wonder why they are not secured better. Football players continue to play without helmets. This takes nothing away from him as a player.

Twas a great block, worthy of the Y archives.

"That was an awesome block! It was THE game changer!"

Agree that it was an awesome block, but it was the Tulsa mistake---not calling for a fair catch deep in their own territory and fumbling it with seconds left in the first half up 14-3---that led to this score. That play was the game changer.

"Tulsa was the 2nd best team BYU played this year, TCU being the best."
TJ lives in this land where 8-5 Tulsa, who lost to BYU by 3, is superior to 8-5 Utah who beat BYU by 44 and 8-5 Texas who beat BYU by 1. Apparently, losing to BYU makes you better. :)
