I have never cried after a football game - for good or bad, but I almost did tonight. My life as a Ute fan has reached a new high. I love this team; I have loved this season. I doubt I am able to sleep much tonight.
I have heard the best Utah football win in history - no doubt.
I have heard the best state of Utah win in history - no doubt.
I have heard the biggest win in Utah sports history - Probably.
They said that we could not bring enough people to the game - I saw at least 20,000 strong in the stadium.
Forget adding Boise State to the MWC - how about the PAC 10 giving the Utes a call? Better yet, how about a playoff?
Utah is no longer "Mid-Major". Nothing about the program is "Mid-Major". This is as major as it gets.
I remember, as a 14 year old kid attending a game with 20,000 people in the stands Rice Stadium - hopeful just to be invited to a bowl game.
I remember beating BYU twice in a row - no longer just a fluke to do so.
I remember winning the first outright MWC championship - I thought my life as a Ute fan was complete.
Never, ever did I expect Fiesta Bowl AND Sugar Bowl champions within five years.
This year was special, this team was special; without a doubt my favorite year of Utah football.
Kinda brings a tear to my eye.
