Naval Vet:
"Did you not watch that game, or were you just being frantic and emotional?"

Why would I watch that game? Who cares? I saw what everyone else in the MWC and the nation saw...a 27-0 scoreboard of a 10 loss UNLV team beating a 9-4 Utah team they had no business beating, let alone by 4 TDs. I assure you that no one cares about all your excuses, that was an epic choke job...then U decided to follow it up with a 2011 version against one of the worst teams in college football. No one cares about excuses, and the only numbers that matter are the zeroes on the clock and the score displayed beneath them.

You said - "Another 5-7 season and the Whittingham clan will have great disdain for their former employer - the University of Utah."

Actually you see, Ute fans are back to the time when the only game that matters is the one against BYU. They beat the Cougars and they could finish the rest of the season 0-11 and they'd be happy.

But wait, BYU and Utah aren't playing each other in 2014 and 2015. What will Ute fans do to measure their success?

I don't get it. Two seasons into the PAC-12 and Utes fans are still obsessed with BYU. I thought Ute fans were planning to forget all about BYU and find a new rival.
