Have to credit the crowd (especially the students). The last few visits the Zoobs have taken the building over and 2 years ago there was more blue than red in the student section. Even more disheartening than losing decisively to BYU was listening to the visiting fans completely drown out the home fans and feeling like I was cheering for the road team.
Last night the MUSS and rest of the crowd really brought it and drowned out the idiots up in section FF. Every time the visitors started a chant the Ute fans started their own cheer and overwhelmed them.
A few minutes into the game, Rose had to call an early timeout, the crowd gave a rousing ovation as the teams went to their benches, and I (like Larry K afterwards) got a bit choked up. It's been far too long since the Hunty had that atmosphere.
Hopefully we can keep it up. If we can create that kind of environment against teams like Oregon, Arizona, UCLA, Colorado, and other Pac-12 powers, we'll make our building a very tough place to visit and by inspiring our team and rattling the opponent, we can help our team beat some quality opponents.
