And it wasn’t just surprising to me.
“So I gave him a hard time about that, because it’s unusual for me to find him not watching film when I text him and I’m watching film,” Grimes said. “But I was talking to him about something and he goes ‘oh, but be sure, coach, I’m going to watch some film after this.' He’s a film junkie and he’s that way because he loves the game.”
According to Zach, he believes a lot more people watch the reality show than they’d like to admit. But he thought he’d have some fun with Grimes when he got the text from his coach.
“A bunch of our coaches watch it,” Zach said. “I don’t care what they say, I know they watch it. I’m with me and my three roommates, two of our main receivers, at home watching it. There’s a whole bunch of guys that watch it. ... We come to find out the next day in practice that a lot more people watch than he thought.”
Dax Milne to celebrate his mother Saturday
BYU’s Halloween night game against Western Kentucky will also serve as the Cougars' Cancer Awareness game. And Dax will be the one to run out onto the field with the pink breast cancer awareness flag.
While the flag represents breast cancer, the junior’s mom battled Stage 4 colon and liver cancer two years ago, when Dax was a freshman at BYU.
Almost a year in remission, Dax’s mother will be sitting in the stands in LaVell Edwards Stadium on Saturday to cheer on her son.
“She was fortunate enough to make it through and her scans kept coming back clean,” Dax said. “She’s doing great these days and I’m just hoping she stays great and healthy.”
• I really hope the other BYU media guys weren’t pulling my leg when they said they’d be dressing up for Saturday’s game. This is my first Halloween football game and am so ready to dress up, but if I end up being the only one in the press box in costume, it’ll just be sad.
Normita’s Spanish Lesson of the Week
I thought I’d go for an easy one this week. This word literally just means costume.
Translation: “I hope to see many different costumes in the stadium this Saturday.”
