Utah and Boise get massages, fight each other

There are two seasons going on right now, bowl season and the holiday season.  Now while the holiday season is supposed to be one of love and cheer and gifts from people you talk to maybe once a year, it seems bowl season has taken on a completely different tone.  Everywhere you look this bowl season, people are fighting.  

We can't dance without a fight, can't practice without a fight and now it seems we can't even get massages in Las Vegas without getting into a fight.
A spat of pushing and shoving broke out between the Boise State and Utah football teams during Sunday’s MAACO Bowl Las Vegas welcome reception — the first of several events involving both teams.
“Some pushing and shoving, some dishes broken,” said Mark Wallington, the media director for the MAACO Bowl.
Utah moved to a lower level of the Hard Rock Café after the incident.
The incident started outside the massage room, where the bowl had provided professional massages for the players, toward the end of the reception.

Seriously, people, where is the love?  

Dances and massages are supposed to be fun and relaxing events, not a reason to push and shove. Save the hatred and the violence for where it belongs: on the football field.  Besides, if anybody should be angry and wanting to start a fight this bowl season, it should be the fans who had to sit through the first three games of the season on Saturday.

Who does a blogger have to punch to get a compelling game around here?

Can't wait to see Boise St. Small Engine Repair School get slitch bapped by Utah. Then next year they will cry "Ya, well well well we played that PAC10 school Utah". Can hear it already.

Utah and Boise get massages, fight each other

I love it!  It feels like normal now, folks are back to slamming my Broncos.  Thanks!  I was worried for a while.  You bet, Boise plays no one.  They said that when we played Oregon, TCU, & VT, and the Broncos beat them all.  Utah is a fine team, we respect them totally.  But Boise is a fine team as well.  I was worried for a while, but I'm feeling better, the more I read put downs from you good people.

So, to all you Utes, enjoy the fleshpots of Vegas, and we promise not to say a word to your bishops.  Just remember, when you pay to get a massage in most places in Vegas, a "happy ending" is usually included.  I never could figure out why those masseuses always wear black garters and lots of mascera.   Go for it, Utes, because I'm thinking that this may be the only happy ending you good people will get.

Hey red... You might not think Boise has played anyone, but just hope your coach doesn't treat the game like they haven't. Boise is good and you know it. If Utah wins it will be a huge upset, but it could happen. Nevada did it.

Boise wins this game, but it will be closer than 17 in my opinion. It's normal to smack talk and they are just emotional kids. It will make the game more intense hopefully. Boise fans are no worse than any other fans. I was at the VT game and those fans are some of the drunkest most beligerant fans I've ever been around. I went to the Utah/Boise game in 2006 also. Same thing. Every team has ridiculous fans and they always seem to be the ones that talk the loudest, so whenever I read on these boards about how Boise fans are soooo bad, just think of how ridiculous some of your own fans are. A lot of times teams with little man syndrome play the hardest too. I can name a whole bunch of scenarios. You'll see it with TCU/Wisconsin this year. Go TCU in that game btw!!!!!

Boise State and their fans have been smack talking since the start of the season.  They had to shut up for a bit after Nevada beat them but it looks like they are back to their old ways.  Utah did get killed at Notre Dame and home against TCU this year but otherwise weren't all that bad.  I understand why Boise State is heavily favoured (-17) in this game but I think it will be closer than that.  Bottom line, if Boise wins big it gets to trash talk for the entire offseason.  This should motivate them to win big since they don't seem to be capable of anything but trash talking.

BSU is a good team, but far from great.  VTech also lost to Madison the next week of the season, so that game is hardly something that BSU should hang their hat on.  Had they beaten them midseason maybe we could talk, but VT was a very bad team to start 2010.  Add to that the Broncos lost to Nevada in conference, and you have a team that feels slighted for no apparent reason.  I can name 5-6 teams that I can gaurantee you that they run BSUs schedule this year, and none of the aforementioned are Auburn or Oregon.  LSU, OU, tOSU, Arkansas, and Wisconsin all go undefeated with that schedule.  Are they in the National Title? Nope, because they were forced to bring it every week instead of once a season.

One quality win (VaTech) and a loss in conference to Nevada.  If Boise plays in a big boy conference they don't get a wiff off a BCS bowl.

Boise St is a bunch of smack talking wannabes who would be fortunate to be bowl eligible if they played in a real conference.  They suffer from classic little man's syndrom- while Utah is moving to the PAC-10(12) next year Boise is stuck in the WAC until their move to the weakened MWC which still leaves them at the outside of the BCS looking in.
