I'm a big Riley Nelson fan. It's funny though because he took off his helmet
Saturday and his hair was still too long for the testing center, or dress
standards. i don't think it matters but it's funny that he got it cut but it was
still over his ears and shaggy. I like the kid and hope he gets to start rest of
Nelson was just growing his hair for locks of love.
Get over the hair, folks. This includes BYU. There is nothing wrong whatsoever
with his hair, including the length. This is a stupid rule tied to Ernie
Wilkinson's reaction to the counterculture of the 1960's and other antiquated
thinking. It is time to put the rule in the junkyard of silly rules that a more
enlightened generation has moved from.
Alisa made the difference this weekend. Either QB could have started.
Dear Rock On,You say, "Rock On isn't sure if Heaps will set any
passing records, but he's clearly on track to smash all existing marks for
sports cliches in a single interview."If anything, YOU happen
to be the champion when it comes to the use of cliches.Who cares
about hair length these days anyway?Whose right it is to complain
about the rule of any institution?How much sense does it make for
sports writers to continually bring up this particular issue of BYU's rules when
none would ever make fun of the dress codes of the Amish?
What? Rock, you make more than 2,000 a month?
There are grooming standards at BYU. Live with it you critics. Coach
Mendenhall is responsible for his players; what they do on and off the field,
and what their grooming is. So what's up? Right not BYU is being exploited by
teams with quarterbacks who can hit receivers, and by running backs, who when
they get into the BYU secondary can cause problems. Oregon State is going to
give BYU significant problems this week. What about the TV issues? I want to
see this game when is is played in HD.
Cliches are another way of saying "no comment." The alternative is for
Jake to call a press conference at Iggy's and send former Utah basketball coach
Jim Boylen to tell everyone how he really feels.
BYU's standards don't require students to have "missionary" haircuts.
I had hair nearly as long as Riley's a couple of times while at BYU. Never had
a problem with the testing center.Contrary to popular belief, BYU
doesn't require people to be "cookie cutter" copies of each other.
Unless things have really change that much in the 10 years since I've been
re: NampaWhat game did you watch. Really I thought Riley tossed the
rock for three TD's hum I guess the media and 50 some odd thousand fans got it
