There has been an astonishing dearth in the bloggernacle over the years. Not a dearth of bread or of water, but of hearing about the School of the Prophets. That shining institution set on the hill in Salt Lake City, which our beloved prophets founded and attended, and which has distinguished itself so well lately in the magnificent game of football. I speak, of course, of the University of Utah, and its football team.
Now, I know this is a dark time for some of you. But rest assured, I come not to mock, nor to mourn with you, but to share with you a celebration. Utah is currently ranked no. 8 in the BCS standings and in the AP poll, and no. 7 in the coaches’ poll. They are one of only 7 undefeated teams left in the country. Brothers and sisters, let’s celebrate together!
As the Utes move into the core of their schedule, anything can happen. If they beat Air force this Saturday, they could move into the top 5. If they beat TCU on November 6th, they will play in their third BCS bowl game in 7 years. Or it could all come crashing down if the team doesn’t live up to its hype in the next few games.
Whatever happens, these players and their excellent coaches have brought a lot of good attention, fun, and honor to the State of Utah and to their school. Let’s all celebrate their achievements and cheer them on. Especially if you don’t have much else to cheer for.
