    Interesting move, for the team, overall.

    Interesting story about the value of Parents being willing to "strongly" counsel their child with an important decision as well as how the son "accepts" that counsel despite having different preferences himself.

    Youth need to make their own decisions (mission, college, marriage etc) but being willing to accept the counsel of parents or other knowledgeable people who have their best interests at heart, is a great sign of maturity.

    A freshman? With only ONE MONTH offensive line experience? And he starts? Against #6 Wisconsin? On the road?

    Yeah, this kid's got talent.

    Welcome to Cougar Nation, Mr. Saleapaga!

    How interesting. A 4 or 5 star recruit who chose BYU over the PAC 12. Of course the U kids will claim he was never more than a 2 star. In the end stars don't mean everything. While watching the game I saw his name on the back of his jersey and wondered why one of the projected starters wasn't playing but his contribution spoke for him. Welcome to BYU young man.

    I was particularly sad to see Keanu leave the D-line as I felt he would have become a great defensive end. In any event, Grimey and Pugh are naturally experienced at finding the right spot for their O-line players.

    While coaches often make mistakes, it appears that Keanu is on a trajectory to be someone special not just personally but also on the football field. Best of success!
