Kyle Whittingham was asked after the Utes’ loss at Colorado if there was any bowl game he wouldn’t want to attend.

“That I don’t want to attend?” he slowly said.

He paused before claiming he was OK with any of them. But here’s a safe assumption: There's no way he wanted to be stuck in the same town as Carrot Top three years in a row.

BOWL BLAHS

Instead of the Las Vegas Bowl, the Utes drew the Foster Farms Bowl against 6-6 Indiana. Meanwhile, BYU’s big postseason event will be a Poinsettia Bowl matchup with former conference foe Wyoming.

How about just considering last September’s Utah-BYU game their real bowl and calling it good?

HEAVEN SENT

Utah Valley University broke ground last week on a new performing arts building.

School of Arts dean K. Newell Dayley told the Provo Daily Herald: “This is, to me, a miracle on the hill.”

No, the miracle was beating BYU in basketball.

This is just a building.

CLINTON COUNT

Bill Clinton spent last Thursday night sitting courtside with Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry, watching the game against the Nets.

All went smoothly until Clinton demanded a recount on the scoring.


PEACE TRAIN

Metta World Peace tweeted a list of things he would do if elected president.

Among them: “I would make 5 hours of comedy per year, in front of a crowd, mandatory. Similar to community service.”

Not a bad idea: laughs in the name of world peace.

GOLDEN ARCH SALUTE

Big Mac creator Jim Delligatti died at 98, last week.

Here’s to the man who provided countless lunches to countless teams on countless bus trips.

He deserves a break today.

TICKET TRAUMA

Using 50 metrics, including money spent on tickets, WalletHub ranks Salt Lake the nation’s fourth-best city for basketball and 10th-best for soccer.

However, the capital city rates just 221st for football.

Apparently WalletHub showed up just as fans were leaving the stadium after Utah’s loss to Oregon.

CHILL, MAN

Golden State coach Steve Kerr says he tried marijuana for back pain the past two years, but it didn’t help.

Still, the experiment wasn’t a total waste. Let’s assume it took the edge off blowing a 3-1 series lead against the Cavs.
