    BYU Emailed Pollard

    Do people really have nothing better to do?

    Here's his reply

Unfortunately college athletics can bring out the best and worse in student-athletes, coaches and crowds. Last night was a very good basketball game in front of a very vocal and intimidating environment. The game included a lot of drama and emotion exhibited by both teams and fans.

    Unfortunately one of our players, who is also one of the best student-athlete representatives that I have been involved in during my 24 years of working in college athletics (he is a scholar athletes,, a leader in our student-athlete captain’s council, and one of the most polite and courteous student-athletes I have ever met) lost his composure for a brief second near the end of the game. Although we do not condone that type of behavior, I also compare it to what many college coaches get away with during the game when they berate officials and behave like immature children on the sidelines. Unfortunately fan bases around the country have grown to accept that has normal, if not, desired behavior (fortunately neither coach last night behaves in that manner). However, when one student-athlete makes a bad decision in the heat of the battle, everyone wants to make a bigger deal out of it than is probably warranted.

    Thanks again for sharing your thoughts. No one is perfect. Imperfection is human nature - how one responds when they are imperfect is what makes them a true perfect person.

    Thanks again for your email.

    Can't blame them for emailing. They're just following the protocol laid out on this site. ****** off about something? Email Pollard.

    Um, when he is talking about coaches berating officials I felt like he was referencing a different sport.

    Weird, I was sure Pollard would have admitted that Ejim was a thug.

    How did you get this? How can I be sure you didn't e-mail Pollard and this was his response to you?

    I don't think I've ever seen a whinier bunch of butthurt fans ever. At that's saying a lot after some of the teams we've played. (BTW, if someone wants to cross out 'whinier', replace it with 'whiter' and then add FIFY - go right ahead)

    Glad to see JP stick up for Ejim. I'm waiting for Cyclone Alley to apologize for JP's email.
