But, like playing your brother in a game of 1 on 1 in the back yard, I want to win BADLY. I want those bragging rights. I want to lord over him when I win. Rub it in his face--all in good fun of course, because he;d do teh same to me.
What I hate about the rivalry is the anti-LDS sentiment, and that comes from one side and one side only. It is bitterness and vile. Many in this state turn it into a referendum game on the LDS faith, and I am sorry, but I hate that. Perhaps it is partially fair game though because of how the LDS Church is using the football program as a missionary tool, so in a way, it is an extension of the church in that way. SO I guess I get it, I just don't like it.
As to Vai's comments, he needs to just shut up about Bronco. It is clear that he still loves BYU and his time there, He sent kids there. BUt he clearly has an axe to grind with Bronco, and it is immature and juvenile. Whit is happy to stroke Vai's ego and sniff his jock while Bronco is just not that type of guy. Vai needs to check his own self on this one, because his pride is giving him away. Vai is not the only one either. Hans Olson, Jason Buck, and Ofahangaue also are upset due to coaching snubs. It is pettiness.
Very well put!
Tripwire, I promise you will never see a byu fan throw beer on a ute fan or player. You will never see from a byu fan sex acts performed on a blow up doll representing a Ute players mother! And you will never see up to 10%, which means thousands of drunk fans dropping multiple fbombs at opposing fans or telling fans to f their religion. Ok? So shut it with the religion thing.
