Lets go beat our rivals!Been a tough season, but playing the hardest
schedule in the country is not easy, and most teams in the country wouldn't
have done any better, certainly not any local regional WAC-like programs. Go utes!
Chris,For now, I think we should consider Stanford or PAC 12 rival,
since we beat them and knocked them down in the rankings. They're going to
be mad next time we play them. Go utes.
Good luck today to the Utes.Finish strong and build a base for next
season.That said, let's not pretend Colorado is a rival. This
is a rivalry only in the sense that the PAC-12 would like it to be one. That may change over time as the teams play meaningful games at the end
of the season and build a history/legacy, but it certainly isn't true now.
I know as I looked at the schedule at the beginning of the season, this
wasn't a game that was in the top half of those that I was excited
about.Time to win this one and head out on the recruiting trail.
CAL & Washington had the toughest seasons in the nation. They swapped Utah
and Colorado for AZ & AZ State.
