Ok I have no idea what the title of this article means.

But I like to think back to a simpler time.  A time when Rick Neuheisel was coaching the Bruins.  UCLA used to roll into town and we’d drop half a hunnerd on them, even with Big Love Tommy Grady at QB.  Then UCLA goes and gets a good coach and finds a QB in Brett Hundley and now they’re all like good and stuff.

And frankly I think it sucks.

So you ask what is going to happen this week?  Well I have no freaking idea.  Really I don’t.

I mean UCLA is good, but last year a much worse Utah team hung around against them.  But UCLA is better too.

The Ute team scraps and fights but we also got lit up against Oregon St.  However it seems Sean Mannion is lighting everyone up.

So when you say, “what is going to happen?”  I have to say I don’t know but for whatever reasons I don’t hate our shot.  But then again I’m a bit of a homer for the football team.

Moving on to a better subject, I like where are team is in relation to a bowl game.

There are 4 Pac-12 teams now I really like Utah’s chances against.  Colorado, Wazzu, Arizona and USC.  We only need to get three of those to get to a bowl game.  If we get all four that is seven wins.  If we get all four and steal one out of UCLA, Stanford, Arizona St. and Oregon (read most likely ASU or UCLA) that is 8 wins like I called for to start the season.

What I’m trying to say is, things are looking really good right now.

So be happy.
