    @ Objectified

    I don't hate BYU. I cheer for Utah, but I am more than capable of having a civil conversation about football.

    "Some people don't like BYU....get over it!"

    How can anyone ever do that when they have you reminding them on every single college football article ever printed in the Deseret News?

    Obviously, it's you that's toward the front of that pack. We get it. Now it's you that needs to get over it and move on.

    Who is Tui Crichton?

    Best friends with Brandon Davies - came to BYU the same year as Brandon. Although he may feel more "comfortable" at Weber State, his values or Weber State's environment aren't the reason he transferred.

    Tui may feel some bitterness, but eventually he'll accept the fact that its mainly his own fault that things didn't work out at BYU.

    I don't see the big deal. He maybe didn't use the most eloquent words, but he feels more comfortable at Weber State with their environment and will get playing time. If someone left to BYU because they felt it was more compatible with their values, well, good on them.

    No need to throw insults. A lot of chips on some shoulders, especially Brad Rock. Me thinks some posters doth protest too much!

    This guy couldn't get playing time at BYU, so he goes to FCS Weber St. and suddenly he's with the most awesome crew in the world. Is he getting playing time? probably. Guess I'll watch him get kicked up and down the field on Thursday!

    Go Devils!
    Go Cougs!

    I know Tui and the simple truth is he allowed himself to get too big (to put it politely) to play for BYU; plus, he had some other issues that I won't go into.

    I wish Tui success at Weber State and hope he has a very enjoyable experience there.

    @ Striker

    I think you need to take your own advice.

    Oh my, I recognize sour grapes when I "taste" 'em! Why not take the high road when it would be so easy to do? Go figure.

    This "article" looked like something you read from the non-BYU people saying they despise BYU but post on their articles daily.

    Some people just aren't cut out for BYU and this guy seems like one of those. It's not for everyone and I think it's ludicrous an entire post was dedicated just to this one quote. Some people don't like BYU....get over it! Thousands and thousands understand BYU and appreciate it. I am one of those. No need to publish this.

    You should notice that the Weber State coach was quoted as saying that Tui misspoke and should use a better choice of words when describing Bronco Mendenhall. The fact is that athletes fail at one school all the time and they move on to where they hope for success. The bigger ones realize that it was time for a change and accept it and do not have to leave parting shots to justify themselves.
