    Good article. I chuckled about your description of Grandma's reaction - yes, they especially seem to know that family is more important than sports. After decades of being dyed in the wool true blue through and through we have learned these same lessons as family members have had great experiences at Utah's other great universities. We are very fortunate in this State to have great opportunities at a number of excellent Universities.

    This is EXACTLY why I love the rivalry and EXACTLY why it is so unique! It is fun to go to Disneyland and see all the Ute and Coug gear being worn by so many different people. It is fun to say Go Cougs! and to hear Go Utes! I was also very impressed by the way many Ute fans handled the recent Max Hall news. Great article...

    Katie Rigby, who plays for the University of Utah women's soccer team, has the exact opposite story. You should track down her parents at the game tonight and swap stories. Katie grew up a cougar fan in Mount Laurel, NJ, but ended up a Ute.

    I'm as blue as can be, but I just like the rivalry in general. Thanks for the fun article, Jason.

    Your daughter is showing the world children do not need to repeat the sins of their fathers. She broke free from the shackles of red that bound her to a life of misery and shame. To quote MLK, "free at last, free at last! Thank God Almighty I am free at last."
