There used to be a house that was some sort of "green" building project around Kaysville that was a branch of USU. I wonder if this is something similar.
My wedding reception was held there.

Re: Food For Thought

Air Force, Army, and Navy, our nation's MILITARY schools are publicly stating that their football seasons are a FULL go. Of all the teams in the country, shouldn't they be privy to the best information available? What does this tell you? Nothing. The air force academy is still closed to visitors, a...

Re: Football Season Is In Jeopardy

If there is a vaccine by the end of the year, and it is widely distributed, you'll know how effective it is by spring. But how many people will take it? How many people will even be able to take it if they want? If you let everyone know that taking the vaccine will get things back to normal, I thin...

Guys, everyone will move to conference only for flexibility. And then it’s just a matter of time before the whole season is cancelled or moved to the Spring.

Yes, but within context. Able Porter isn't posting on the low block looking for an open look. But if he is wide open on the low block, shouldn't he take the shot? Of course, why wouldn't he?
