    An athlete marrying a beauty pageant contest. I love stereotypes?

    Where will the honeymoon be? Disneyland?

    Congratulations to the couple, but why is this news? How about students from the engineering or music departments? Don't they get engaged, too?

    "Remember two things: 1) Decide now if you want to be in love, or to be right. 2) The most selfish thing you can do is love that girl."

    Your post doesn't make any sense. So you're saying love=selfishness?
    I vehemently disagree.

    Congrats KVN & Melissa.

    @ SlopJ30

    The social pressure on devout LDS girls to serve missions while at BYU is rather intense from what I am hearing. It would be naive to suppose Marrisa hasn't had the Mission or Marriage chat with her roomates.

    Do Cougars marry prettier girls than Ute players do?

    Just joking!

    KVN scores a touchdown--congats!

    He did better than AJ McCarron! Well played KVN.

    "I wonder if Marissa has any Missionary plans before her nupitals? One would think she'd be influenced to go by her female peers at BYU."

    I hope that's a joke. If not, it would be, if not a first, at least highly unusual and weird. Who gets engaged and THEN goes on a mission? I'm sure a famous, good looking soon-to-be millionaire would have no trouble waiting for her.

    Peer pressure is no reason to do anything, including going on a mission.

    Now I know why (I think) why he chose to stay for another year. I wonder what next on Cody Hoffman? Now please win another one Kyle at Kraft Hunger Bowl THEN you can spend your romantic time with your future wife in San Francisco.

    Congrats Kyle and Marissa. Two of the choicest things in my life came from BYU too: My education and my spouse. As much as you love both today, they will only grow in value as the years go on. All the best to both of you.

    I can't believe she didn't hold out for a player from a BCS conference school. Doesn't she know that stars matter?? LOL

    I know you play Defense, but what a catch!

    And here I thought he missed out on all the defensive stat's this year by not blocking a kick. But he scores in the biggest way. Congratulations Kyle. We as Cougars will miss you. All the other teams will gladly watch you in the NFL from now on.

    Congratulations to Kyle and his fiance. Take it from me, a BYU wife is interesting, hard headed, fun, stubborn, intelligent and a great ride to be with for the past 40+ years. Remember two things: 1) Decide now if you want to be in love, or to be right. 2) The most selfish thing you can do is love that girl.

    KVN delivers another big play! Maybe this is why he was missing a few tackles.
