    Why is this even a thing? If we had all-white, all-black, all-hispanic, all-Asian or all-any other race POY, can you imagine the push-back? Anything that separates us by race perpetuates the problems with race relations, not fixes them.

    I could see the firestorm and rage now...

    “Matt McKinley is a finalist for the All-Caucasian National Team”.

    Why isn’t there one? All Poly. Meh

    C'mon kaysvillecougar, you are better than that. Just kidding, no you're not! With the state's of both our programs over the last few years, nothing has to be made up on the Ute side. However, the Cougar side? All day long. Keep trolling and have a nice day.

    It's not racist to offer awards to or within any racial/ethnic/cultural group.

    It is racist if they are claimed to be inherently/genetically more deserving or superior.

    My sources are telling me there's a huge line up of ute fans making things up to make themselves feel good.

    @I'm smarter

    Fair Question to be sure....
    However, fair questions are not allowed in this P.C. World.

    Brandon and Talanoa,

    If you're reading these, please come to Utah. You can see by reading these comments why this is the right choice - apparently some of the fans of BYU-Provo think you're being racist by participating in this award.

    Well if this isn't racist I don't know what is. Who is the "northern European POY?"
