    And follow it up by firing Tom Holmoe for so badly botching the Ken Niumatololo interview.

    So how does Empey, Jr feel that he redirected his chance to play for a P5 so he could go to Provo to play for his dad for one season. Oops.

    Meh. BYU students and fans already justify plenty of garbage. This will be used as a faith promoting story about how he avoided the evil temptations of playing football on Sundays.

    Looks like ARod has paid the price of Provo employment.

    Rearranging chairs won’t do much. This is Kalani’s team, and he seems lost.

    Well at least he got to hire these guys as opposed to those headed out the door. They also have much more experience. Whether that makes a difference remains to be seen.

    I"d sure love to get Empey back with his father now out. I've got to imagine he's feeling some serious regret.

    I was thinking earlier, because I’m a horrible person, that it would be funny to hire his dad now while he rots in Provo.

    Troubled young man. I hope he gets things figured out.

    I think this is a good thing for him to do. I'll tell you why...

    It truly must be difficult when you feel like you peaked at 18. I'm not trying to slam Nick, but he was always the best player on the floor through high school and into college. Always pampered and coddled to a certain extent, and no matter what else happened, he knew he was the best player on the floor. Now reality has sunk in. Life is hard, and he doesn't necessarily have the tools yet to learn how to handle life's situations.

    He is a competitor, so I'm sure he'll find a way to transform those energies into something else he is good at. I do feel sorry for him though. I feel like the people around him let him down in that they let so much of his identity be wrapped up in his life as a basketball player. I can see where that would be a hard thing to manage though when you see he really is that good so you want him to be able to see how far he can take it. You don't want to get in his way, but at the same time managing his expectations. It's a tough situation.

    It sounds like he's taking the steps to get himself right in the head though. Kudos to him.

    I agree. It's a cautionary tale. I wonder if his life would have been different if someone he trusted had intervened when he was acting out violently during his teen years. People probably excused that as just a function of his fiery competitive temperament.
