Leave it to a BYU student to invoke the name of the Lord in BYU’s win last weekend over the U.
Austin Collie, who caught a 49-yard pass on 4th and 18 to keep the drive alive (which eventually put BYU ahead for good), had this to say in a post-game interview: “Obviously, when you’re doing what’s right on and off the field, I think the Lord steps in a plays a part.”
His comment, of course, has generated quite bit of controversy.
My gut reaction is to dismiss the statement as youthful frivolity; but is there any way in which it could be true?
Oh, and for those unfamiliar with the “Immaculate Reception” see here.
