I'm sure UTEP is looking forward to beating BYU on the 25th anniversary of the
Miner's victory (while one of the worst programs in college football) over the
defending "national champions" in 1985. BYU should wear the royal
blue to honor that tremendous loss.
Menace,Youte big meanie, go cougies!
There are two possible high notes that could conceivably come out of this game
for BYU. First knowing that the season is finally and mercifully over. And
secondly... hopefully that someone in the Athletic Director's department is
seriously aware and considering that the Offensive Coordinator's door does swing
both ways. Not only to bring them into the program but to also see that they
leave when the time comes. Portland State would certainly be good place for Mr.
Anae...Dontcha Think??? All this game will succeed in doing is give
two teams a couple of weeks extra practice and a scrimmage match to build on for
next season. One will remain above the .500 mark while one will fall below.
The only people who will even care are the teams themselves and their fans...and
of course the...incessant rabid uteys who can't help but foam constantly at the
mouth getting their 2 cent tooties printed in a DN BYU blog. For the rest of
the Normal and Civil Utes out there I hope the Utes bag them pesky little

@MenaceToSociety, nice use of "scare quotes," dude. For starters,
"BYU" didn't create the "system" that was in place in
"1985," they simply had to "work" within that system.
Second, BYU was the unanimous "champion" in 1984-1985, which is a
"feat" that other champions *didn't* always achieve. There has never
been an "asterisk" next to BYU's "championship," unless you
are applying an "asterisk" next to all "champions" that are
crowned by judges/computers/polls/etc (along with college football, throw in
diving, figure skating, Miss America and the like into the championships that
are crowned that way). I'm definitely in favor of that kind of asterisk.
Well, I am probably going to be the only person that will see this. So . . .
