    BYU often takes things too seriously. I am glad to see them loosen up some. Play loose, play hard. Some of the commenters need to loosen up as well.

    I'm glad they are out having fun and enjoying their time together. I may question their movie choice, but that's another matter. I would prefer to read about this one of of the player's twitter feeds, or if he has his own blog...not on a news paper website. Then again, with as much wacky stuff as ESPN covers, maybe this makes sense.

    Some of you commenters don't get it. I think it is great to see and remember that these guys are just college kids wanting to have fun and goof off a little. I have absolutely no problem with this article and am glad the players are friends that enjoy to do what every single one of you did with your friends in college; have fun and make jokes about each other.

    Brave Sir Robin, the rest of the nation doesn't mock us. They frankly don't care. But you do. (sniff) I just love you Ute fans! You guys are so loyal. The SEC doesn't care, but you do. We should hang out sometime. Are you free in 2016? That would mean a lot to me.

    Having said that, this TMNT thing is pretty goofy. But to sjames' point, it seems like these guys are really getting along. The whole "bomb squad" thing for the WR's is presumptuous too, but again, it maens they see themselves as a team.

    Why so many hating on this article?!

    1) The TMNT remix going on right now is super relevant to the whole US culture, particularly with Millennials who grew up with the originals series.
    2) Interesting how everyone thinks we'll get "mocked or scorned" for something like this, as if those who would "mock and scorn" our culture wouldn't just do it anyway.
    3) This is camp, generally a pretty tight-lipped time of the season. If fans want players like Williams to take the lead on this team be something special, fans need to grant him license to do what works for himself and his teammates.
    4) Enough with the Williams suspension talk. As if none of us have ever screwed up before. Not to mention that the kid is in completely different culture with completely different standards.

    5) This silly story is actually really good news. If the RB core is doing things like: bonding, recognizing roles and unique traits, becoming a team/family unit and being lead by each other; should fans seriously complain about how that happens?

    Great article, haters gonna hate

    Oh, brother. Slow news day, DNews? What a waste of space. As if there weren't enough "out there" to draw the rest of the country's scorn and ridicule.

    And BYU fans wonder why the rest of the nation mocks them...

    John Charity... I believe we have seen like 40+ articles about an apologetic Williams. I am really surprised you took the time to read this 1 page article where a 19 year old guy is having a bit of fun. Go see the movie, maybe you can find a good role that fits you too.

    That is BYU all over the place. I wonder if we will see a T shirt with that picture on it pretty soon.

    Idablu is right. Why is Williams wasting his time with this nonsense, rather than showing remorse for hurting the team by getting suspended?
