Choosy moms LOVE this blog.

  1. BYU COUGARS - OPEN FIELD DUNKING

  2. This is the best dunk you will see by a dude wearing a helmet and shoulder pads. I guarantee it. Corbin Kaufusi throws in down after going... all... the... way (from midcourt).

  12. Portland's rowing team also on board, in unison with the new mark.
  13. WCC FASHION REPORT

  14. It appears BYU head volleyball coach Shawn Olmstead is very fashion-forward. Is that a camoflauge snap-back hat you're wearing? It reminds me of this fantastic fashion trend.

  2. BYU soccer player Carla Swensen strikes a pose with a "model" student-athlete.
    There are so many photo caption possibilities here - even after removing the ones that might get me fired. Choose your own from the list below.
    a) Great if you like the strong, (really) silent type
    b) Yes, I understand he's tall, dark and handsome, but he seems a bit stiff.
    c) This is the kind of picture that convinced me it was time to try online dating
    d) That man(nequin) must work out...
    1. Speaking of BYU Football, the blog would like to take this opportunity to recognize All-American Cougar QB Jim McMahon who will have his number retired tonight. We also embrace any excuse that gives us a chance to showcase the former Chicago Bear's dance moves.

  10. SANTA CLARA BRONCOS - STRONG MEN LIFTING HEAVY THINGS

  11. Bronco men's basketball appears ready for the "Feats of Strength".
  12. WCC BASKETBALL - PRACTICE OFFICIALLY UNDERWAY

  13. All-WCC guard Kevin Pangos sums up the start of official practice for the 2014-15 season pretty well. Yeah, it's like that.
