"While BYU is one of the marquee programs in the country, Talley said other
programs like Utah Valley, Weber State and Utah State are all great options for
boys and girls athletes to fulfill their collegiate dreams."It
seems like there was a school left out of that list... nice journalism.
REd Leader, since it was a quote, I guess according to your journalism ethics,
the reporter should've ADDED Utah, SUU and Dixie so no one is excluded,
even though the subject didn't say it. Interesting perspective. I think I
agree, the more I think about it. If we disagree with something someone says,
just change it. Or, enhance athletes quotes to make them appear smarter.
You're right. That kind of journalism would be more PC and palatable.
Imagine if we had 600 scholarships for learning understanding and the protection
of our Constitution what a better country we would have and money well spent.
Instead we have an out of control Government teaching our children the fractured
History THEY want them to know and believe. Remind you of someone else doing
this very same thing ?
Vance, if you and say, 60 to 70,000 of your friends are willing to pay say, $50
every Saturday in the fall to watch kids learning about the Constitution, I
think it would work. Univ of Alabama professors in the 70's
were apparently incensed that so much money was being spent on the football
program and Bear Bryant famously retorted, "if you can get 90,000 folks in
Tuscaloosa to come every Saturday and watch the kids conducting experiments in
the chemistry lab, then you'd have a valid argument."
@red leaderWell Talley is a Cross Country coach and until a year ago
utah didn't even have a program. Why would he mention them? They are not a
factor at all unless it is just a kid wanting a scholarship. Talley was talking
about GOOD programs, GOOD options, not startups with no relevence.
Does Mark Graham think they are giving scholarships away girls."Almost
100 percent of the girls that have some ability, some commitment and are
well-coached can get some type of scholarship” Really. One only needs to
look at the number of girls in sports and the numbers with scholarships to see
the statement is wrong. Girls scholarships are just as competitive as boys are
and each college has the same number to give to each sex. An article on the
NCAA scholarship limits per sport for D1 and D2 might be a good list for people
to know also D3 can give no scholarships.
