Utes exposed in ugly, lopsided home loss

I'm emotionally exhausted right now. I'm working on two hours of sleep and have been up since four in the morning. My voice is gone, I'm dehydrated and extremely disappointed in my Utes' performance today. 

So I'm not going to say a lot. I can't say a lot. If I do, it'll dissolve into a pathetic and childish rant. 

Instead, I'll just say that I've been to a lot of Ute games and never have I left the stadium so wrecked and disheartened than I did today. I really believed in them. I really thought this team was for real. But they weren't. Not even close. 

This team is, as the Chinese like to say, a paper tiger. The national media was right and we were wrong. Utah had no business being compared to the likes of Boise State, TCU and yes, even Alabama. Today's game showed these programs are in an entirely different galaxy than the Utes right now. 

Congrats to TCU. They one-upped their performance a year ago and earned the most impressive victory I've ever seen at Rice-Eccles Stadium - and that includes so many great Ute wins. 

Now excuse me while I regroup and try to make sense of what just happened.
