Come on BYU give McMahon an Honorary degree already...look what he did for your
school and BYU football.
That is a good point ayeaye-Would it count if BYU game him an honorary
degree? I would think the BYU HOF has considered that. Jimmy Mac was the best
bar none. There is no conspiracy to keep him out, that is for sure. We all
want him in the BYU HOF.
Thanks for giving back, Jim. It's interesting to hear hypocrites giving BYU
advice on how to live.
Live hard, if you could make a list of everyone you want BYU to give Honorary
Degrees to, and post that list here, that would be great.In the
meantime, it's a great thing hou are doing Jimmy Mac.You are one of
the greatest.Thanks for the Holiday Bowl. One of the best football
games ever played!
I appreciate what McMahon is doing. The brain trauma suffered by football
players is very underestimated. Take for example the most recent BYU player who
coach Mendenhall said "was groggy, but we don't know if it is a concussion
yet." Hello! If he's groggy, its a concussion.For many years,
there was little evidence and much controversy as to whether concussions caused
permanent damage. BYU's own Erin Bigler, through fMRI studies, demonstrated
that real physical damage occurs and is permanent. Furthermore, recent studies
demonstrate that once a concussion is suffered, the likelihood of suffering
additional ones is greatly increased. And the cumulative affects of multiple
concussions can be severe.I applaud McMahon's willingness to
It may just be his age. I am 50 and this happens to me all the time, and I have
never donned football pads in my life! Seriously, I wish him well.
If he is lucky he will permanently forget his years in Provo. Maybe this is a
blessing in disguise!
Chris B - look at the photo of him with Lavell. Does it look to you like he
wants to forget his experience at BYU, the place that made him great?
Its so great that all you utes are JimmyMac fans. He was a great QB but doesn't
qualify. I honestly don't think he cares. You ute's are probably the same ones
who cried that he got special treatment while at BYU. Yet you think he should
get it now. Make up your minds.
chris b,Mac forgot about the tds long before he started having
memory issues.I love that the fact the tds fans love him sooo much
but JimmyMac could care less.Definetly a one way street.
It is way past time to give Jimmy Mac the HOF. BYU needs to bend the rules on
this one. He was probably the greatest qb in BYU history. Go Cougs, and GO
he is the greatest qb to play at byu. the holiday bowl game in '80 is the
greatest game ever.
Jim Mac is the reason I am a Cougar Fan ! Please put him in the HOF for all to
see, he deserves it for all he has done for the notoriety and prestige of the
BYU and its historic " quarter back factory University " label and
trade mark.Jim McMahon is BYU and the Miracle Bowl of 1979 will
forever be his game.You got game Jim forever.
Oops sorry 1980 Miracle bowl game. You are the best Jim.
He did learn something at BYU!! He entered to learn and is going forth to
serve. I wish him all the success in this new project.
