Well folks it's finally here, the match up that most likely will decide the champion of the MWC. Utah vs TCU. Lot's of talk has been with TCU and rightly so, They are dominating the competition and have an inside track into busting the BCS. their one road block however, is the last team to go BCS bowling: Utah.
I've been browsing on several sites, and have found several comments (probably from TCU or Cougar fans) that it is in Utah's best interests to lose at Fort Worth cause if the Utes pull off the upset, they will cost the MWC a bowl berth and millions of dollars. In answer to these folks I say HOGWASH!.
Let's get one thing strait boys: the players on the Utes team couldn't give a rats a** about "costing the MWC millions" they don't see a cent of that money. To them, its all about the game and the rivalry. you NEVER just lose because the fans and media thinks it's in your best interests. On that same thought, why would you want your rival to thrive at your expense?. I guarantee you BYU was fired up in 2004 and 2008 to throw the monkey wrench in Utah's BCS plans.
My point is players don't care about the off-field politics, they take care of business on the field and let the media, and the rankings worry about the rest . Utah is gonna give this game everything they got and won't hold back just cause TCU is the BCS darlings.
