    I recognize the street; it is around the corner from us and my kids played in that house all the time growing up. Maybe I can scarf some free stuff.

    Who wants to bet we can go back less than 100 tweets of Wrubbel's to find a grammatical, spelling or punctuation error?

    Pretty classless for The Voice of the Cougars to make fun of the rival’s AD.

    On another note, can someone please explain to me how Holmoe, who has presided over the current state of the Coogs, seems to escape virtually all criticism from their fans? I'm of the opinion that he might be the worst AD in the country for what he has done, and should have been fired long ago.

    How many Deseret Duel points is this contest worth?

    He is the best AD in history. He needs a lifetime contract. His move to pull them out of a conference (with help from Secret Agent Samuelson), plus his ability to scare away other conferences (Big 12) with his shrewd negotiation tactics is impressive. I mean, who does Texas think they are? UT's $5B endowment and $200M in annual revenue is small potatoes compared to byu-P's Corporate Mormon Jesus dollars.

    I think if the Utes beat Colorado and the Ducks beat ASU on Saturday, then the Utes should rest all of their starters vs. BYU to get ready for the CCG.

    Turn this game from a draining, late-season distraction with a ton of potential for injuries into a late-season re-focus and get healthy almost-bye week.
    A loss to the byu doesn't matter with the Rose Bowl on the line.

    It would shift playing the BYU game from a disadvantage into an advantage vs. the Pac-North champion, IMO.



    I'm hesitant to post this for fear of karma and jinxing and hubris and all the times I've been let down by a Utah team close to winning something big, but Utah and Oregon both winning is a realistic scenario.

    Sr Day.
    Last home game.
    Last game in front of families.
    Still need to improve the record to get the best possible bowl game (if not Rose). Vegas Bowl is not impossible.
    Kids are all competitors.
    Embarrass that other team.
    The byu of Provo has a solid Defense and a win is far from guaranteed.

    This is the start of a very long list of reasons why benching the starters I'd a non-starter.

    That said, I would tell Covey to Fair Catch all 9 of the punts (and the two kickoffs the Cougars get - the one to start the 2nd half, and the one after they finally get on the scoreboard with a garbage time FG). Maybe sit Chase after the 3rd quarter.

    It's not easy wording obscure stats with multiple layers to them. Greg probably has the most practice doing it of anyone.

    I just saw a photo from the Potato Bowl. The Y is wearing Royal Blue unis. Seems like an unfair advantage; its almost like wearing Harry Potter's invisibility cloak. The opposing team wont be able to find them.

    That was fun to watch again. I know and work with the "lead singer" in this video. I let him have it for days after I saw this the first time. Good time to bring this up and mock him again.
