This is getting to be a little silly now. BYU is going to be the best flag football team out there.

Slow day in the newsroom? What team doesn't fight at practice? Oh yeah, Utah doesn't.

First day of pads without hitting? Maybe the team should try handball in the 2016 olympics.


Who is the strength coach now, same one or someone new?

Sounds like someone needs to tell Alisa he's playing football and is going to get hit.

This was about following directions. Bronco was getting their attention.

I am so inspired because I read this article.

His lesson was a complete waste of valuable practice time.

Which team sport requires a higher level of discipline than football. It's like chess with hitting, and if each component part of team is not doing its (his) job exactly, the whole play collapses. An effective coach will demand discipline and obedience. In this case the orders were "no contact." Sorensen hit Alisa, contrary to coach's instruction, and Alisa reacted with retaliation, again contrary to orders.

In basic training, if someone in your platoon messes up, the whole platoon pays the price. It seems to get everyone in the platoon or with the team on the same page.

Personally, I respect Bronco for imposing discipline. That's what a coach should do for the benefit of the team.

So DC, Ute Ninja and Old Navy, you may want to reconsider your position on this. Practice time without discipline is meaningless. A strong and disciplined team is a better team.
