Elevation and early winters




I haven't noticed anyone talking this subject yet so...

Two of the things that made Wyoming a wild card any given year that your had to play @War Memorial Stadium
  1. The elevation difference
  2. The unpredictable winds

Boise would have had quite a different game had the winds been swirling and punts and passes going sideways like a few games Utah has had there.  When the winds get like that you have to grind it out on the ground and then the thin air becomes a disadvantage instead of making it easier for kickers.

Now I know that Colorado and Utah are no where near 8,000 ft and their stadiums are much more enclosed than War Memorial; Still having direct experience with lung capacity between here and San Diego; Also being that the Ice Bowl is one of my all time favorite Utah memories and having to Trick'O"Treat on Halloween in the snow....
