Disappointing, disaster, a down year, rebuilding... call it what you want, there's no doubt that last season wasn't what Ute fans wanted or expected.
That's not what I want to know, though. What I want to know is what game we need to win to make this season feel like a success. Whether that means revenge over the team that took us down last year, victory over our rival, a stunning upset, or just a slight uptick in quality of wins.
So... poll! I've left out the should-beats and did-beats. These are teams we play this year and expect to be underdogs against, or who beat us last year.
As for me, I'd like to see us take down USC, UCLA, or Oregon State. Our games with those teams have been pretty close, but on balance we've clearly been the lesser squad against them. A nice win over one or two of those teams would give me a lot of hope and excitement for the future.
