Substitute teacher lectures Utah child over his 2 dads

Three girls stood up, then walked out to get someone in authority. I am so proud of those girls. — Lana Creer-Harris

I was mortified to think that a sub hadn’t been trained at all apparently!

Bless those classmates who stood up for him and for bringing it to the principle’s attention! Escorting her from the room was sending the message that she was very wrong in her actions/words. I hope the boy being adopted hasn’t been scarred by this experience (I don’t even have the words here!). — Karma

Schools have approved curricula and this teacher was outside the bounds of what was appropriate to say to a student at that school. On the other hand, if the curriculum included statements that homosexuality was ok (or being a Mormon or a Muslim or a Catholic) then a teacher could make that statement as it wouldn’t be just a personal opinion. I would think that at this time in history that many schools are teaching that homosexuality is a normal, acceptable sexual orientation. Not so forty years ago. Should enough people lobby the school district to teach otherwise it would be a different story. What bothers me most about the situation is that the teacher determined she had the authority and right to lecture the student about personal matters in the first place. Very old school behavior. — Cookster

BYU football vs. SDSU grades: Offensive failures loom large

Your grade for coaching is too generous, should be an F-. But don’t worry I’m sure it’ll be fine cuz as Kalani repeatedly tells us he’s going to fix it. — Steve24/7

Most grades seem appropriate. Everybody has an opinion. However, there are just too many glaring mistakes, as pointed out in the article. Maybe some players do better in practice than in games and vice versa. — Rtl73

Thank you for rating Special Teams as an F. Well deserved. Worst special teams I have seen in a LONG time. — Mabramso

The team was not ready or motivated to play. I have seen this several times in the Sitaki era. This is unacceptable. There were a lot of bad plays. Zac still looked rusty from his time off. But the lack of preparedness from the coaching staff should have been an F. — Jim Nail

This is the worse game I can remember for BYU. The coaching deserved and F-. There should have been a QBack change, change at running back, so many penalties, no imagination in play calling, poor defense as usual and the team in general was poorly prepared. A three year extension after wining a game against one of the nation’s worst teams and a 50% overall winning record? A new AD should be a heavy consideration for the new year. What ever happened to blitzing? Every game the other team’s QB looks all world as there is no rush. Can’t happen with only three defensive line men, surprised they do as well as they do. The coaches should observe and learn from the opposing teams success in putting pressure on our QB’s. Don’t expect much for the upcoming “no nothing bowl”. Sitake is a nice man, but more concerned with being the player’s friend rather than their coach, but no worries as he now has a new 3 year contract and can continue his dancing for the team rather than holding them accountable and being a coach. He wouldn’t last a few games for any other team. — Jerry Kite
