What Rivalry?

College game day was destined to be at the Rice-Eccles Stadium this year. The stars had aligned, no one said it but every true Ute and BYU fan hoped it could come down to this, two top ten ranked teams, a BCS bowl for the victors, taking this fierce rivalry to a whole new level.

It was all for not, BYU had to go blow it and get embarrassed by TCU. This loss was in some ways suffered more by Utah, for BYU had allowed someone else to take from them what was rightfully Utah's. They say 90% of success is showing up, and every true BYU fan that believes in their own "tradition, spirit, honor" knows BYU didn't show up. To add to this painful set of circumstances, BYU's slogan this year "Quest for Perfection"

Thank you BYU, for not living up to your end of the deal and for not having anything for us really worth taking. Thanks for mediocrity, for helpingout the BCS's cause, and for taking the rivalry out of it. This game will be hard fought and come down to the wire, all in all a great game... but it could have been epic.
