2 Friday night games? Booooo! It should be a fun game.

Ute football one day earlier than scheduled? Always a good thing. Hopefully Utah State is as good or better than they were last year so that the first road game of the season is actually a test for the Utes. It'll be fun to watch the Utes play in their tune up game against Northern Colorado, but the Aggies look to be a team that can actually challenge the U this year, especially in Logan. Go UTES!

Every game on national TV! The PAC12 just keeps getting better and better! Man, it's gonna be a long summer.

I don't get it! Two Thursday games and two Friday games? I thought those nights were reserved for second and third rate teams. I thought a BCS school like Utah was supposed to only be playing on Saturdays.

I understand your confusion. Irrelevant, mid-majorey teams  such as the Indy-WACers for example  have little understanding of what makes one a "first rate" program. So, without going into too much detail  since you probably wouldn't get it anyway  it all starts with "not being in the WAC", and includes "not playing in bush-league 600K bowl games that donÂt even cover the costs of playing in it, and that nobody was watching anyway  either in the stadium, or on TV".

I'll let you think about that for a while, while you keep on pretending the Big 12 will soon be rolling out the red carpet for you, and that your WAC-ish schedule is just as competitive as your big brother's Pac-12 slate.
