The words could go on the front of the jersey above the number. That would make
Much as I like to see the Cougs beat the Utes, I would rather have an 8-5 season
and loose to Utah than be Utah with a 5-8 season and not go to a bowl game. The
Utah game is just one game. Ute fans will baically say this same thing after
they loose to BYU this year if they can go 8-5 for the season.
It is very good that Bronco practices a synergistic decision making approach
even with team members involved, a quality that makes him a great coach. The
world today is very different from my day in sports, and I am not sure that a
lot of it is for the best. $$$ drives this world today and especially sports.
Looking back at the differences going to a BYU football game in my day as
compared to today has vastly changed to commercialism. If this issue does not at
least underlay the stink of pride and selfishness, then there must be something
else is amiss. In the world of work, the boss is exactly that, the boss.
Athletic teams have coaches/managers and the concept should be the same or all
order is lost and values become compromised. Listen, enough about this jersey
trivia. Surely there are better and more important bits of news to deliver and
Just WIN and beat the Utes, is that too much to ask?
christyLosing to our rival, but still playing an exciting bowl game
in a fun city to visit, was light years ahead of rushing the field three times
in September, and then being forced to watch bowl week from the comfort of your
couch.Just like the 80's, BYU has once again become Utah's
The writer missed the point. This was a HORRIBLE idea by Bronco!! I hated it
as soon as I read it on DesNews. Bronco needs to wait until he is a Mission
President to pull out the Fireside material. I love what Bronco has done with
the program and support him, but every year it seems he shoots himself in the
foot with some great "idea". JUST WIN!!!!
@Max,How does it feel to continually lose to your rival, the rival
that didn't go bowling last year?However "bad" we are,
Chrissy, the three words that whit is thinking about using-nobowlgames
It was the furthest thing from the "right thing". Much more
appropriate on little cutouts put on Beehive's.
I think the writer of this article largely missed the point of why many players
and fans wanted names on the back of jerseys. It's not just about personal
glory and individual accolades like the writer implies. In my opinion, the
writer's conclusion is overly simplistic.Reports also indicate
that Leavitt's injury was to his hip, not his ACL, and it may not be that
serious, but we won't know until tomorrow. On that note, I also think that
Chris needs to get a life outside of the unhealthy obsession over BYU.
Chris B. Ute nation must be so proud of you.
Chris B needs to get a life. That being said, I think the writer of this article
largely missed the point of why many players and fans wanted the players names
on the back of the jerseys.
I miss the days of LaVell Edwards when he recruited an offensive national power
year in and year out and recruited from both sides of the fence (Jim McMahon, Ty
Detmer, Robbie Bosco, ....). Both Ty and Robbie later joined the Church. The
team was really fun to watch and it is hard to rekindle that excitement anymore.
This jersey thing with Bronco feels like a primary activity.
No, he definitely had the wrong idea.Dear Bronco:Tradition- Try keeping up with the past tradition of winning.Spirit-
Actually boost your teams spirits and get them pumped for big games.Honor-
Honor/respect the fans.
Had it been Notre Dame’s Lou Holtz picking the words, the jerseys may have
read: Ability, Motivation and Attitude Unfortunately for byu ,
sunday school boys just don't have that first thing.Can't
say enough about ability.Nick Saban couldn't crack the BCS with
a team of sunday school boys.
And Whittingham has the right idea about the byu-utah games:Win
