My goodness. What unkind things to say about Brigham Young U. Mind, they're all true, but still ...
Of course, they may be true, but they're also incomplete. For example, Reilly talks about BYU winning 19 of 28 conference championships, but one might add that they've had a sparkling record of futility in that realm the past few years. (Although ... they have done rather well this academic year in all other sports, haven't they?) And they haven't done much in men's basketball over the past 20 years at all, and the same advantages really ought to apply. It may well be that there's something specific about football that confers an advantage in having a more mature body and mind at work.
Of course, the end line of the article is somewhat misplaced in this argument. That stuff just isn't Christian. To which BYU would reasonably respond, "Yeah? So? Neither are we. What's yer point, here?"
