    I pray for this coach's success. In some smaller way he is traveling the road that Coach Mendenhall is on, and I cringe at the nasty criticism that gets heaped on Bronco.

    Teach the players to be good men first and foremost. Not at the expense of athletic excellence, but rather to enable the same.

    Hooray for Coach Creighton!

    Whoa Nellie - BYU implemented such a standard with the honor code many years ago, as stated in the article.

    Shazzbot!! that's great to hear a coach having some standards. Coach Peck at Bingham is the same way, not that the kids don't swear but if he catches it they get in big trouble.

    Holy cats! I wish BYU could implement and enforce such a standard.

    I like that Coach stresses the issue of self-control. In football and all sports, self-control is always a major factor in the outcome of the game.

    It's ridiculous to think that an athlete that cannot control his mouth can, on the other hand, control his physical behavior on or off the field.

    And to think that a foul mouth demonstrates manliness or any other good thing but the epitome of immaturity is ludicrous.

    Wow! This is refreshing to read. Someone who wants to cut out swearing in a manly sport. This world needs less cussing, not more.
