The MUSS are awesome! The energy they bring to RES is so amazing! It's nice
to see the students be so involved, especially when we've had some growing
pains the last few years. Great job guys and gals of the MUSS!
I promised myself when I went to college that I would go to as many football and
basketball games as I could so I could participate in one of the traditional
"college experiences". My time at the U in the early 90's
didn't disappoint. My friends and I could show up 5 minutes before kickoff
and stand on the 5th row, but we still had a great time cheering, heckling the
opponent, eating cheap hot dogs, etc.That said, I am jealous of
today's U students - their college experience as it relates to football is
even better than mine was thanks to the Muss. Enjoy it, guys...the memories
will last a lifetime. You may go to college football games your whole life, but
your time to do it as a student is very short.
Student sections are where all the fun is in college football. The "grown
up" fans are great, but heckling from them just comes across as obnoxious
(suspenders man from youtube in last year's football game, the BYU fans
near me sitting behind Utah's bench at the Marriott last year all come to
mind). MUSS, live it up while you're students! But then learn what cheering
is appropriate later.
"Do that now and you’d drown about a thousand students."Good point - alcohol and hot tubs are a bad combination.
I don't particularly care for either BYU or Utah, but I can see how the
MUSS is a great addition to the experience of attending Ute home games. Tons of
energy in that corner.That said, stay off the field until the game
is over, and save your "field storming" for a PAC 12 win of substance
(like Oregon or Stanford). BYU is not a win of substance any more. If you are
going to be a real Pac 12 program then act like it. Power programs don't
storm the field after wins over weakling independents. That was
embarrassing last year.
