First time I saw J.D. I knew he was going to be a great one. I appreciate his
heart and his spirit. Get Well soon J.D. Want to see you in San Fransico!!Signed;All of Cougar Nation
Water Park? It's freezing outside. Whose hair-brained idea was that? Geez
Indoor water park, surfing on the artificial wave. I'm sure the coaches
are regretting that decision.
While it is a tough break, Falslev has proven that he has what it takes to excel
despite the odds and I expect that he has many successes ahead of him in life
once his football career is over. I imagine most schools have their stories of
walk-ons who with superior effort and tenacity rose to outdo their more highly
recruited teammates. Ansah, Van Noy, Falslev, and there are likely many others
who have outperformed their expectations and can hold their heads high having
done their very best. It's been a pleasure to watch these fine young
I hate accidents, especially of the kind that are preventable, freakish or not.
I kind of agree with the previous comment... a water park?Let's
keep things to a nice calm level during football season like Chucky Cheese,
Trafalga, Ping Pong, Monopoly...Good luck JD on your recovery, hope
to see you in December!
A major bummer for JD. His absence could be a negative factor on Saturday -
hopefully not. Hope he recovers fast enough to suit up again this year.
It's amazing how these kids do really dumb things. It's the football
season, they should not be doing anything but playing football, going to class
and dating girls. A water park in late October...in Provo?
I don't want to harp but young people think they are invulnerable and
immortal which leads to accidents that can be prevented. One role of a team
member is to consider the good of the team when you act on and off the field.
It is hard to rein in the impulse to "dare and do" but the loss of
playing the rest of the season for this young man and the loss of a team mate
could have been prevented.This may be why professional athletes have
very specific contracts with lots of things permitted and prohibited. Hope this
is a learning event for the coaching staff, and players as well.It's also a great lesson in life, it happens.Glad it
wasn't more serious and it sounds like he'll be fine with some time to
This is horrible news. Hope he can play in the bowl game.
Water Park- yes bad idea- but given the events of the last bye-week- partying in
Vegas with pictures I suppose a water park and an injury are an easier sell to
upper admin at BYU
Unfortunate for BYU as Wisconsin will be punting a lot on Saturday.
"'He’s a kid you’d want your daughter to marry,' said
David Strunk, who worked in the offseason with Falslev at Sleepy Ridge Golf
Course in Vineyard." Stop already. I stopped reading the article after this
statement. Just write the article about Falslev's injury and impact on the
team. I don't care about this "personal" aspect that has zero to do
with the injury. I hope David Strunk enjoys his "15 minutes of fame."
I don't want to see him in San Fransisco. I want to see him in Arizona!
Can I get an Amen?!
@So. Cal ReaderHarmon was trying to show his character... Take a
chill pill and go read some military battle field reports if you want all
details and no story.
You really hate to see season ending injuries. I wish JD well in the future - he
sure was fun to watch.
Who reads Harmon? I am only here for the comments.
I think Mendenhall needs to man up and admit this was a bonehead thing to do.
Any serious athlete is paranoid during the season not to do anything out of the
ordinary. Surfing? Surprised he didn't have them breaking in some of his
horses on the ranch. I say BM sits out a game and thinks this one over.
I have heard that Falslev is a great kid and a good leader but.... Every time he
fields a punt I cringe. He is clearly a very emotional player that
has a lot of heart, but is far from an impact player. I am sure the team will
miss his presence in the huddle though.... oh wait we don't huddle anymore.
@timmysfan:. . .as in the BCS bowl game? AMEN!
@sammygLet's keep things to a nice calm level during football
season like Chucky Cheese, Trafalga, Ping Pong, Monopoly...---------------Rancherito's ... well before midnight, nothing
good happens after midnight.
People are much smarter on Monday morning. He could have broken his hand in many
different "safe" activities. Ask the people at the water park how many
broken hands have happened there.
