    Norm knows how to twist the knife. The substantive part of his message is that Kyle and the staff is looking at film of our opponent in two weeks. But we also did that for Air Force. Saying the BYU game is meaningless is Norm pouring some salt on the wound that is BYU and being Indy.

    In general, the Norm interviews on 1280 have been a trainwreck. Multiple times this year, he has admitted that he didn't watch the games that DJ and PK are asking him about. Its almost comical to listen to them fill him in on what happened, and then listen to him "analyze" what he was just told.

    It appears that the Deseret News has already thrown in the towel.

    The money quote:

    After seven straight Utah wins, reflecting back to BYUís glory days is just about all the Cougars can do these days. Until BYU does something about it on the field, memory is a pacifier.
    I remember the morning after that 70-point game. One of the speakers at our stake priesthood meeting went out of his way to gloat about it. That was what that 10-year stretch was like for so many of us.

    Blaine Fowler on Rileyís show today said Zach Wilson reminds him of Jim McMahon. Blaine went into detail in that comparison. I think itís adorable when BYU fans see the greatness of the (distant) past in every new quarterback that comes along.

    At that game some fan walked down the bleacher stairs passing out paper bags to cover our heads in shame.
    Cougar fans won that battle, but we achieved a total, undisputed, and permanent victory in the war.

    I listened to Bill Reilly interview Kalani today and was a bit surprised to hear Kalani say that everything they have done since starting workouts last January was pointing toward the game with Utah. That this is by far the most important game they will play this year and that he wants his guys to enjoy the experience and compete each and every play. Utah is clearly the more talented team but this game has been close in the past when the Utes had a clear talent advantage. I expect a close game through the first half and hope the Utes come out win this without needing to score or stop BYU from scoring in the last five minutes.

    On November 24, 1973, a favored Utah (7-3) hosted 3-6 BYU in the second year under LaVell Edwards at Ute Stadium in a fierce snowstorm. The Utes were coming off a win against USU and had beaten #8 ASU a great game earlier in the season. The Utes lost 46-22. I was there. Please, lets not have a repeat.

    So SeattleUte, Iíd love to hear how the Wilsonís are approaching this game, if you wouldnít mind sharing some insider views with us? Do they see that any move Utah failed to make was strictly a business decision or do they see it as a personal slight and have turned their back on the whole program. I know Zach and some of them attended one of the Utah games earlier this year.

    Zach seems like a solid kid and I hate it when legacy kids have to find a home some place for their college years (or even when a highly recruited legacy kid goes somewhere else). I just hope that when that happens, both parties recognize it for what it is and treats it with respect and sensitivity.

    I donít think itís going to be a good day to be a BYU quarterback.

    I have a policy against public posting about Zach. But this seems innocuous enough, as it’s not strictly about Zach. They see it as a business decision. They know how it works, and they’re not angry people. They still love the Utes and cheer for them when they’re not playing against Zach. Zach’s dad played for Whit when he was defensive coordinator and he took Zach to all of Whit’s camps. Their next son is one of the best linebackers in the state, and I’m sure he’d entertain an offer from Utah. Besides, this has worked out well for Zach. Remember, he had offers from Syracuse and Cal, so he had strong reasons to go to BYU that admittedly coincided with reasons he wanted Utah most (it wasn’t about religion). BYU wasn’t a last resort or panic pick.
