I will have to admit that I felt a little letdown after Sunday’s bowl announcements. I personally pictured the Utes going to a fairly decent bowl game against a pretty good P5 opponent. Deep down inside I was really hoping for a battle of the “Real U” between the Utes and Miami. I envisioned many “flashing U’s” in a back and forth game with the victor claiming once and for all that they were the “REAL U!!!”
Plus, I wanted to see some more Eric Weddle tweets talking trash to Warren Sapp.
One of the greatest tweets in the history of twitter.
I know, I know, Miami isn’t the greatest team on earth but I really wanted to see Gionni Paul give them a little taste of what could have been and with all of the Florida recruits the Utes have been landing lately, I think it would have been a good stage for the Utes to show what they’re all about and layeth the smacketh down on a team from Florida.
BUT alas, the football Gods had other ideas for the Utes.
The Utes were headed to Vegas much to my surprise to face the 9-3 Cougars of BYU. My heart sunk. Playing BYU near the holidays is bad for one’s health. A time where we are supposed to rejoice in family and friends is now going to be spent avoiding certain family and friends because you can’t stand their level of fandom.
I can’t stand BYU!!!
And what if the Utes lose????
My holidays will be forever ruined!!!!
Ugh, blah, Bah humbug!
I even wrote a little holiday poem about it:
Twas the night before the Vegas Bowl and all through my home,
Everyone is sleeping, I feel so alone!
My Ute flags are hung outside with care,
In hopes of victory tomorrow, a loss I can’t bear!
The team they are playing doesn’t like to play nice,
Cheap shots and nut punches, better bring extra ice!
They’ll be out for revenge, this we all know,
looking for #100 for their Coach Roscoe!
The Holy War is upon us, coming up slow and steady,
One thing I know for certain is;
MY UTES WILL BE READY!!!!
Even though fans were frustrated with the bowl announcement, the Utes are still in a bowl game and BYU is a worthy opponent.
So, let’s get behind this team and hopefully we walk out of the Vegas bowl something like this.
