    Anyone still think it isn't a major part coaching?

    Prior to us, ECU had not held a team to less than 30 points, including James Madison and Temple.

    Looks like I picked the wrong year to quit taking amphetamines. I'm thanking the heavens that we aren't playing Wyoming this year. They're like Utah fans on crack. I could be snowed in a cow camp 15 miles into the back country and some jackhole would snowshoe in just to tell me BYU sucks.

    The line in the sand is that coaches must be LDS. And prop 8. The BOt has effectively killed BYU football and possibly basketball. There might be a path out of hell but I donít see it.

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.

    Technically, only the head coach needs to be LDS. However, BYU pays their assistant coaches so poorly that the only people to take those jobs are LDS with BYU ties.

    The fan base is a bigger mess than the team right now. From the fan base perspective, it looks like there is no long term strategy and no serious investment in the program from the BYU admins and the BOT. Maybe there is behind the scenes but they certainly aren't communicating it. Fans are irrational anyway, throw this much uncertainty on to of it and this is what got get.

    I assume the long term strategy is to keep independence until the next round of conference realignment in 5 years. That way there is no tricky contracts to negotiate to make the move. That's fine, but there should be more support on finding ways to win in the meantime. Namely, paying coaches more.
