f**k CFB rule makers and officials.  The targeting bullshit is killing the sport.
Why so?  You dumb enough to lead with your helmeted head, or head hunt, that's intent to injure.

The rule might be fine, though automatic ejection especially on a play like this is complete bullshit overreach.   But the way it's called is destroying the game.



Indefensible.

Yes the PAC 12 is not off to a good start.  My Utes are not doing so good.  It really hurt to lose that game to BYU the week before, since we have beat them 9 times in a row over 12 years.  Thought they should have had a wake up call after that but the first half against San Diego State was bad, except for a 80 yard punt return for a touchdown.  Changed QB's and went to 3 OT but fell short. That gives me hope.

It used to be such fun football.  The rivalries still exist, but they don't carry the weight they once had.

Ever since we joined the PAC 12, our rivalry with the Y has waned.  Just not as easy to get wound up when it didn't matter if we won or not since we weren't in the same conference.  I think this year everyone just expected the U to win but the Y had a decent season last year and they didn't want us to get to 10 wins in a row.

Maybe we can go beat Wazzu now that and the QB drama is behind us.

It is pretty cool! But he's got the right mindset about it. They don't give you a statue until you win a national championship.

Yeah Wazzu hung in longer than I expected but they couged the game away towards the end (if you're a longtime fan/watcher of WSU football you totally understand the term "couged")

I posted this in another thread but thought it was more appropriate for this one.

Feeling very sad tonight.  Our football team at the University of Utah is grieving the loss of another one of our players, Aaron Lowe.  He was at a party Saturday night and a fight broke out, he stepped in to break it up and ended up getting shot along with another person.  He died on the scene.  It is so senseless and depressing.  He played in the game earlier in the day and now he is gone.

What makes it even worse is he died 8 months after teammate Ty Jordan was killed in an accidental shooting last December in Texas.  They were high school classmates and Lowe changed his number to 22 in honor of Jordan for this year. He was the first recipient of a scholarship set up in Ty Jordan's honor. :sigh:  I was having a hard time getting psyched up for the season this year because of Ty's death, it just took some of the fun out of it. Now this with all the parallels just makes it seem like we are jinxed.  They will be retiring the number 22 for both of them.  This really sucks and they have few leads of the rotten s.o.b. who did this. :rage:
