You should notice that the Weber State coach was quoted as saying that Tui
misspoke and should use a better choice of words when describing Bronco
Mendenhall. The fact is that athletes fail at one school all the time and they
move on to where they hope for success. The bigger ones realize that it was
time for a change and accept it and do not have to leave parting shots to
This "article" looked like something you read from the non-BYU people
saying they despise BYU but post on their articles daily. Some
people just aren't cut out for BYU and this guy seems like one of those.
It's not for everyone and I think it's ludicrous an entire post was
dedicated just to this one quote. Some people don't like BYU....get over
it! Thousands and thousands understand BYU and appreciate it. I am one of
those. No need to publish this.
Oh my, I recognize sour grapes when I "taste" 'em! Why not take the
high road when it would be so easy to do? Go figure.
@ StrikerI think you need to take your own advice. "Some people don't like BYU....get over it!"
I know Tui and the simple truth is he allowed himself to get too big (to put it
politely) to play for BYU; plus, he had some other issues that I won't go
into.I wish Tui success at Weber State and hope he has a very
enjoyable experience there.
This guy couldn't get playing time at BYU, so he goes to FCS Weber St. and
suddenly he's with the most awesome crew in the world. Is he getting
playing time? probably. Guess I'll watch him get kicked up and down the
field on Thursday! Go Devils!Go Cougs!IT'S
I don't see the big deal. He maybe didn't use the most eloquent
words, but he feels more comfortable at Weber State with their environment and
will get playing time. If someone left to BYU because they felt it was more
compatible with their values, well, good on them. No need to throw
insults. A lot of chips on some shoulders, especially Brad Rock. Me thinks
some posters doth protest too much!
Who is Tui Crichton?
Who is Tui Crichton?Best friends with Brandon Davies - came to BYU
the same year as Brandon. Although he may feel more "comfortable" at
Weber State, his values or Weber State's environment aren't the reason
he transferred.Tui may feel some bitterness, but eventually
he'll accept the fact that its mainly his own fault that things didn't
work out at BYU.
@ Two For Flinching:"Some people don't like BYU....get over
it!"How can anyone ever do that when they have you reminding
them on every single college football article ever printed in the Deseret News?
Obviously, it's you that's toward the front of that pack.
We get it. Now it's you that needs to get over it and move on.
@ ObjectifiedI don't hate BYU. I cheer for Utah, but I am more
than capable of having a civil conversation about football.
