News and Notes

I just finished a closer look for Friday morning on the BYU-Utah game. I talked to James Dye, who is now our sideline reporter for the games. He played for BYU for two years, and won one rivalry game and lost the other. He talked about how the game is much more than a win or loss, and how it can affect a player psychologically to lose that game. Winning means bragging rights, recruiting power, and not having to think about the loss for the rest of the year.

In my household it means the same thing. My husband's a Ute, I'm a Coug, and we are each trying to recruit our new baby boy to our own team. Like Amanda, we each cheer for the other team during the season. But this game is it. I've been singing the BYU fight song to Max but my husband has been dressing him in red whenever he can. So if he picks USU in the end, I'll understand.
