The best part is that there is no longer a glass ceiling like there was in 2008
and 2004. Win or lose Utah controls their own destiny. Go Utes!
@UteanymousJust as Magna Ute Fan says, "It feels awesome!"
I might ask how does it feel for fans of the "team down
South" to know that the success (or lack of success) of their former rival
will greatly affect how the sports world views the success of their program?You are probably right in saying the majority (if not all) the BCS hopes
Utah does not have a good year this year. At the same time the majority (if not
all save, maybe, BYU) of the non-BCS is cheering for the Utes to have great
success. Contrast that with the majority of both the BCS and non-BCS teams
having complete indifference to a declaration of independence.
How does it feel? It feels awesome! We don't care much about any of that soap
opera stuff. We care about great teams coming in to RES throughout the season!
We care about seeing our boys in red playing great Utah football. Go Utes!
Who am I sir?How does it feel to have the entire BCS hoping Utah
will fail miserably just so they can say "we told you so"?Utah is in a catch-22: If Utah succeeds, they'll expose the BCS as
a fraudulent money grab that is based on greed rather than the quality of the
non-AQ teams.If Utah fails, they'll invalidate Utah's past BCS
Nice to see sammyg is still obsessed with the Utes.
How big is Utah's membership in the PAC-12? The Tucson Citizen's
related article of 8/8/11 was entitled, "The Utah Utes are the most
important team in college football"Today's article on Sports
Illustrated.com is entitled. "Utah's Pac-12 success (or failure) will have
far-reaching implications"So what was the Deseret New's article
entitled, "Ute's move to PAC-12 will be closely watched."Carefull. You must be politically correct. To truly report on the national
significance of this event would contrast the national relevance of PAC-12
membership and a move to independence. (I welcome anyone to refer
articles written outside of Utah on the significance of the latter.)
sammyg!!! hahaha that has got to be your funniest post to date. Keep em comin.
Utes' move to Pac-12 will be closely watched...... by very few
people on tv.
