Re: BYU, USU, BSU Joining AAC?

Boazy and the stench aren't necessary to USU's long term health. Wyoming and CSU are. If we can keep a core of those three schools plus UNM and AFA intact, everything else is negotiable. We have found our true home, and what we always knew in our hearts has been proven true: we match up well with ou...

Re: I don't think Devin likes Logan

Something that's missing, and which the NCAA has made extremely difficult, is interactions between athletes and "townies". My dad was the team doctor for the athletic department in the late 40s and early 50s. He maintained a close relationship with the athletic department long after that. My parent...

Re: Saweet Ranking for Logan

The issue with this is not that the ranking means anything, but rather that parents of potential students (and especially student athletes) see this sort of thing when researching USU/Logan.

Re: BYU WR arrested DUI

Had the BYU community been taking their mind-everyone-else's-business responsibility seriously, and reported this kid to the honor-code office at the first appearance of trouble (skipped a day shaving, said "fetch" too much, slowed down when walking past the caffeinated drinks), he'd not be in this...

There were definitely times that I felt that the environment around me for someone in my specific circumstances was a bit "oppressive." Probably around 45 F. Nothing unbearable, but not my favorite temperature.

Re: 1280: 60 in 60

But the ACTUAL joke, while sophomoric, is somewhat amusing. Comedy is hard. One presumes a certain amount of shared cultural affinity with the members of the audience. If there is a lack of shared affinity making it necessary to have to explain why something is funny, the joke is killed. https://ww...

Not sure why it seems that we regularly have to go there.
Silence is consent. Why should those who don't care for the periodic harping on religious and/or racial demographics remain silent and thought to concede to the harping?

Even if you're part of the dominant culture (a mono-culture in all reality) it can still be oppressive. That's a bit hyperbolic, don't you think?

There's been some good commentary in this thread. Allow me to rephrase a bit. I don't think "prevalent" was the correct word.

Well, it's understandable that one might feel uncomfortable in a more racially homogenous area.

Nice. I'll have to check this out while I'm in town this summer.
Bear Lake has such a short season for outdoor fun that doesn't require mukluks. Even Lagoon, with a much more temperate climate, is limited. Let's hope this thing gets funded and built and is a huge success.
