Like Bronco, I know that you are a very wonderful person. I don’t think that you completely understand that which I am trying to convey.
" I also KNOW that you want to see the BYU football team be successful and you WANT football to be the top priority at BYU. I HOPE you get what you want".
Nobody understands more than I do that God, Church, Family, Education is more important than football. I may not be 100% sure that fireside chats for all people are more important than BYU Cougar Football.
When I go to Church, and listen to stories about the trinity, I want the speakers, and the teacher’s to be well prepared.
While preparing their talks, their lessons, I want that preparation to be #1 importance to them while preparing. Do I want that preparation to be more important than the Trinity? Of course not. I am certain that you are intelligent enough to figure
out what I am saying.
When a painter paints the inside and/or the outside of my house, I want him/her to have total concentration on the job I hire him/her to do. Does that mean that she should never think about the Trinity? Of course not. Does it mean that painting should be more important the the TRINITY? Of course not. Again, I believe that you are an intelligent person and being as intelligent as I believe that you are, I am sure that you can figure out what I am trying to convey.
By the same token, I want our Coaching staff to coach football in the exact same way that this current football staff is coaching where football recruiting, football teaching, football coaching and strategies are more important than cute slogans. So do I think that Bronco is more religious than the current staff. Heck no. Do I think that Bronco loves the Trinity more than the current staff? Absolutely not.
I think that this staff believes that each person should do the job they are assigned to do in the very best manner that they
can. Sunday Schools teachers should put totally effort in preparing for their lessons. The Sunday School Teachers, the Bishops, Stake Presidents, General Authorities, and the 2 !/2 minutes speakers should spend all the time preparing for their lessons in order to give the best understanding of the gospel that they can. I think that the football coaches, basketball coaches ,Baseball, Volleyball, Rugby, Gymnastic coaches all the other coaches, be in dance, public speaking o what ever, need to concentrate on their assigned jobs. Does that mean that their assigned jobs is more important than the Trinity? Of course not.
In summary: Do you remember the scripture, “Those that pray in public shall be rewarded by that public while those that pray in the closet shall be rewarded by me, so sayet the Lord?”
