I don’t know about the rest of you out there, but I found the New Mexico game quite boring. Sure, it’s nice to have BYU go undefeated at home. It’s really great to win the Mountain West Conference outright and to do it the second to last game of the season. I also really like that BYU got invited to the Las Vegas Bowl. It’s a great venue and about 3 minutes from my house. Yes, I’m biased, but that’s ok. Despite all of these factors the New Mexico game was boring.
Let’s be honest, last week all that any BYU fan really wanted to do was look ahead a week to the Utah game. BYU’s lost to Utah 4 years running and it’s time for BYU to annihilate Utah. I don’t want to see a close game. I don’t want to see BYU take it easy. I want the full on BYU offense taking it to Utah. I want John Beck throwing for 400 yards. I want Curtis Brown and Fui Vakapuna (I’m too lazy to look up the right spelling so I hope that’s right) to run for a couple hundred yards. Who doesn’t love when Tonga runs over players?
The thing I want most if to be able to call my Uncle and congratulate his Utes on losing. Is that too much to ask for?
