I wish “Band of Brothers”. Was called

Post by troutputz » March 24th, 2019, 6:03 am

Something else! When I hear this phrase I just think of this as a BYU gimmick that was part of the Bronco Mendenhall era at BYU. I couldn’t stand Bishop Bronco. So when I read or hear the term “Band of Brothers”. It just grates on me! As you all know I LOATHE everything BYU. I even loathe Utah County, and I loathe all the towns and cities in Utah County. Hell, when I drive up to CV which isn’t very often anymore, I LOATHE just driving thru Utah County, I feel violated and feel “unclean” ! So I wish they could substitute a different phrase for the “Band of Brothers”!

I kind of agree with this. BYU has also ruined the word "quest" for me, which is a real shame.

“Royal” is on a path to the same fate

It's Shakespeare, putz. It'll be here long after the boogars' rameumptom has crumbled to dust.


You keep using that word. I do not think that word means what you think it means.

BYU ruined those three letters of the alphabet for me. Hard to pursue my career in journalism without being able to use B-Y and U.

Don't let BYU live in your head rent free like that.

As said, it's a line from Shakespeare
