One must know a lot about certain things and I know you Utes are worried about your season.

I want you guys to win some games. Please get yourselves bowl qualified to play in the New Mexico Bowl or Kraft Fight Hunger bowl.

It would mean a lot to several of us. LOL

Who am I sir?

"the Y took a "step in the right direction" when they scheduled Hawaii for almost every year through 2020. They followed that up with Middle Tennessee State for a home and home."

It's laughable how out of touch with reality Utah fans are:

Utah is only 15-12 lifetime versus Hawaii and the Utes haven't beaten the Warriors in Hawaii since 1985.

Middle Tennessee State is 3-1, and just STOMPED Ga Tech 49-28 at Ga Tech (you know, the team Utah barely beat in OT in their bowl).

Instead of worrying about whether BYU took a step in the right direction in beating Hawaii, you should be more worried about Utah even qualifying for a bowl.

@ duckhunter

You are quite correct, many Utah fans did make those Rose Bowl predictions. I was not one of those delusional fans. So, when it comes down to it, BYU and Utah are more or less in a similar boat, losing the games that really count, winning the ones that don't mean so much. So really, the only way to judge the distance between these two teams is the rivalry game, and I don't think I have to remind you how that game has gone in recent years. Forgive me for venting my frustration that stems from the ludicrous predictions of a large portion of BYU fans (still less than %50). I was born and raised in Provo, i've been attending every BYU football and basketball game since I was 5. If I had been raised in SLC and the cougars had hired Kyle or Reynolds like they should have instead of Crowton then I would likely be a BYU fan much like yourself.
