So, the Brigham Young University football team is going to play on a “crappy” blue turf in the Dec. 21 Famous Potato Bowl at Boise State University. Let’s review your status:

You play for a private school, with no financial challenges, endowed for all time.

Most of you student athletes are compensated with tuition, room and meals.

Your bowl game will have a national viewing audience, thanks to your affiliation with ESPN.

So be grateful and humble. Most colleges and student athletes never get the opportunities afforded you.
