Why are you putting A/mission next to the BYU guys who didn’t go on one?
Also do you all really think BYU was better this year because of LDS missions? You think Mantz wouldn’t be better now had he not taken 2 years off? And Linkletter and McMillan didn’t serve missions... also they would have Casey Clinger right now if it weren’t for missions so... ya’ll just sound salty.
- BYU is the NCAA equivalent to WCAP. Coach Eyestone works the sequencing which includes both a 2-year Mission & a Red-Shirt year. Couple Age/Maturity with Altitude & Aversion to non-distance running & you have your formula for success. Let's not forget, Eyestone is a helluva coach as well.
- No, Mantz wouldn't be better .... I don't buy that the BYU athletes don't maintain training during their mission year.
