Ty Detmer is not a good football coach. He’s the greatest BYU quarterback ever. He won the programs’ only Heisman Trophy.

Although week three in the NFL was filled with great games, that went down to the wire, the bigger story happened before the games even started. It started with President Donald Trump using his favorite way to communicate, Twitter, to call NFL players that kneel before the anthem “SOBs,” and saying that they should be fired.
