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.
Dadgum, what a great idea!(I know, not original at all!)
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.
Make that "would implement . . .
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.
Holy pigskin. Hurrah!
Wow! This is refreshing to read. Someone who wants to cut out swearing in a
manly sport. This world needs less cussing, not more.
