    I don’t understand the Boise hate. I was rooting for Oregon because my son loves them more than he loves me. But I root for Boise pretty much in every game that they are not playing BYU. I don’t get the level of hate.

    He’s got one more year. He was a turnover machine last year but was a lot better this year.

    My hate is mostly manufactured. Its easy to get a rise out of their fan base.

    But I do think they should have outgrown the gimmicks by now (blue turf, cute trick plays, etc.)

    That being said, their level of success given their resources is only bested by BYU in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Hard to argue they aren't a successful program.

    Made a couple of bad decisions close to the goal line today, but was really accurate otherwise. Not sure what to make of this game. Oregon just looked exhausted, uninterested, and not invested in the scheme. Their O-line looked silly against boise.

    It was SHOCKING to see Boise is still late hitting, twisting ankles in piles, doing Boise things. But, as CUF proved the MWC is better than the P12, maybe BYU should go back.

    I had a great road trip. I was never going to watch the 38th most important bowl of the year. Once Slick Willie lies his way out of town I knew Oregon had no chance. Royce making the smart decision removes any doubt.

    Why? Things were chaos in Eugene for two weeks, then Royce didn’t play. Meaningless game who cares? It is just funny that now BYU isn’t in the MWC that the Veg doesn’t difinitively price what conf is better MWC/P12.

    He is Ryan Leaf. All the physical tools but very raw. If he can figure it out he has a chance to be special. His numbers this year were awful.

    Yeah. And the rest of the game wasn’t nearly like the first quarter. But holy crap the way the ball comes off his hand is like smooth football sex.

    The Army-SDSU game was beautiful. Army had more first downs than SDSU had plays. Army had no answer for Rashaad Penny but the 'bone kept chewing up yards and time as it held the ball for over 40 minutes and kept Penny on the sideline. Very typical of wins by Army over an opponent with superior athletes. They made more dumb plays and our offense rarely got less than 3 yards on any play. I was driving home from Park City, great powder day despite the limited terrain, and had to pull over to watch the final few plays. What a treat! You people should actually have an alma mater that overachieves in football because it knows its limitations and then devises a system to maximize its strengths while limiting its weaknesses. Makes one downright proud to be an American!

    What a season for my Black Knights. 10 wins, CIC Trophy, two straight over Navy and a Bowl Victory. Jeff Monken is a hell of a head coach.

    I have a feeling Utah is going to lose today. All this talk that Utah doesn’t lose bowl games seems like will bite them today.

    I hope you are right, but the early signs point to you being quite wrong.

    Yup. WVU looks terrible. If it weren't for Huntley missing wide open receivers, it would be worse than it is.

    WVU is really missing their QB (34 tds this year)

    Dallas looks like a terrible place to be during Christmas (or anytime really). I hope Moliere and the other 500 Ute diehards in attendance are enjoying themselves.

    I was there for our Cotton Bowl victory in the 1997 and the weather was great. I'm pretty sure I wore shorts to the game.

    Typical woman that doesn’t know the difference between NRG stadium and the Cotton Bowl.
