to UtesBy5,
It is not true that teams get up for all games. I played college football and teams definitely get more up for certain teams. When I played at byu, we did not get up for Utah, in fact it was a downer game. Utah was not challenging for conference championships and we did not care. The game was a lose/lose for us. If we win, we never won by a large enough margin and if we lose, we should have won. We got up for teams in the race for the conference championship. In my experience, the byu/Utah game has never been as important (at least in the last 40 years or so) as it is to the utes. Most of my teammates were from out of state and didn't care about Utah at all. Part of why it means more to the Utes now is that Whit played at BYU so I think it means more to him personally. BYU cares, just not as much.

Of course the utes wanna sweep this latest NIT loss to a lowly in their opinions WCC team. That way they can continue to spin the Stanford and Byu fluke wins all day long.
