Max Hall was completely right when he said that “…unlike any other college football program in the nation, we represent not only a college but you represent a faith.” Like it or not, the players both teams represent their respective universities to the rest of the world. Now, his comments after Saturday’s game against Utah, is a completely different situation. In the interest of full disclosure I do tend to cheer for BYU all things considered equal. I have duel loyalties and that’s just how it is. I grew up a BYU fan but went to the U and cheer for both teams. Last year when Utah was undefeated I cheered for Utah to win because I wanted them to go to a BCS bowl and knew that there was nothing to be gained by the Y winning. However, this year, there were no major implications for BCS possibilities etc and so I cheered for the Y. It was an incredible game with BYU coming out of the gates leading 20-6 just to have a freshman quarterback start a great comeback to tie the game, sending it into overtime. We all know what happened from there.
