Utah's first conference title game tonight. I know the whole conference title thing is old hat for lots of other team's fans around here, but I'm finding it really
damn hard to concentrate on work. Just want to fast forward to 6:00.
For the record, I think we're gonna get whooped, but will hope to be pleasantly surprised. Utah is 1-10 all time against Washington, and Whit is 1-5 against Petersen (going back to his Boise days). Shelly (QB) and Shyne (RB) have filled in admirably the last three games since our starters went down, but they haven't faced a defense anything like what they'll see from Washington tonight. Utah's defense is really good, but Myles Gaskin has been our kryptonite every time we've played them.
If Utah wins, it's gonna require everything to go right, and we will probably need either a defensive or special teams score as well. Would love to see Covey get one, since the Huskies damn near killed him in the first meeting. Stranger things have happened (i.e. Alabama in the Sugar Bowl), so I'll just hope that we can find a way to put it all together tonight.
