    In game against Boise State. And since BYU is an independent, and not subject to conference oversight, he probably won't even be suspended. BYU has become one very dirty team under Bronco Mendenhall. Their "freshman" QB is the same age as Jameis Winston. Why anyone continues to play a team of 24-to-26-year olds is beyond me.

    That ship sailed when 46-year-old Chris Weinke won the Heisman.

    Not defending Bronco Mendenhall but if you think BYU playing dirty is a recent phenomenon, you haven't been paying attention for the last, oh, 50 years or so...

    Nobody gave a crud about this stuff when BYU nosedived after Edwards retired. Still - I'm curious how the freshman could be 22. I thought missions were two years.

    A lot of athletes are 19 when they graduate HS these days. Two-year mission, redshirt year and you're a 22-year-old freshman.

    Some guys also go on missions after they start college too.

    Weinke was one of 125.

    When Utah smoked Alabama in the Sugar Bowl a few years ago, their best player was "sophomore" defensive end Paul Kruger, who was six months short of turning 23 years old.

    Yeah, the older players and reports of dirty play is nothing new with BYU. With the former, is it what it is, and there's nothing illegal going on. I went to school at a conference rival in the 1990s and I would read stories about them taking cheap shots and a couple of times there were opponents' accusations of some of their players dropping the N-word.
