For the record, I don't believe the punch is the reason this happened.

There is more to this, but I feel really good about saying that I don't give a fuck what the reason is. I won't even be condescending and say that we are above them and don't need to play WCC teams. I won't say that the rivalry needs a hiatus.
I WILL say that regardless of how it came about or what the motivation was, it is FUCKING AWESOME. I would be happy if we never played them again.
The LDS Church is behind the cancellation, but orchestrated it to be done in such a way that they could deflect responsibility.
Church leadership have grown weary of the antics of their FYM. They told Dr. Hill that if Utah cancelled they would oblige. There is something in the deal that those in charge offered to motivate Hill to play it this way. I haven't heard what that is.
If he can continue to acclimate to the upgrade in competition, we have a chance to take the conference. Good guard play is imperative, and Isaiah Wright looks like someone is sleeping with his girlfriend and he can't find out who.
Bonam can be a guy that can penetrate to the basket at moments when we need shots. He reminds me a bit of Andre. However, Tucker and Taylor need to find their shot. I think Chapman will be okay.
Screw it -- the players are excited, so I will be excited.

I am going to stop this routine that we're all engaged in and be excited about the opportunity to send those assholes to Fremont Street without a shred of dignity.
There they can find the low-end titillation that their sexually deprived minds search for. They can drink down a loss with a stiff Coke and a temporary tattoo, while Utah fans try to explain to Las Vegas residents why this thing is still called a rivalry.
And what a perfect setting to send the Football Apostle out on -- that dilapidated wood stack that is framed by those hideous grey mountains. Zoob misery will be at an all-time high when they have to make the drive back down to old Las Vegas and make the trek to their room at the California.
This is the last time I will ever support our players in taking the field against these dildos, so I may as well enjoy it.
This isn't the beginning of the end; it's closer to the end of the end than the beginning.

The beginning of the end was their being left out of P5 inclusion and their knee-jerk reaction to Independence. The writing has been on the wall ever since.
The term "BYU-P" is more applicable this evening than it was this morning. As weird as the guy was, he was a decent coach. I will miss making fun of him, but I am celebrating how fucked they are going to be without him.
After observing these people in their own habitat (Cougarboard) for years, I have identified a pattern of behavior.

When one of their players does something that is undeniably unsportsmanlike, this is the chronological sequence they fall into. It can be compared to the stages of grief -- they experience them all and usually in order.
-Shocked and Disappointed (this is usually their most honest moment and reaction in the sequence)
Throw him out of the game. This is inexcusable and indefensible. I hope he doesn't play the next game either. I don't care what happened, we can't have this.
I can't believe one of our boys would do something like this. This is not what I pay to see and it's not what I stand for. Whether we like it or not, this is a trend.
This fine, young man was not right in what he did, but it was merely a reaction to being provoked and harassed. It wasn't right, but any of us would have done it.
It is obvious that this player(s) was standing up for himself and for his teammates. We are tired of being called robots. We appreciate that these boys have some fire and play with an edge. The world hates us.
-Player(s) Hailed a Hero
I'll just say it: _____ is my favorite player. I am glad that he did this. We need more players like him. The world hates us.
I have witness this cycle in the Memphis brawl, the nut punch. the UNLV Rebels basketball game fiasco, last night/this morning and a variety of other incidents that have been talked about on Cougarboard and social media.
I am looking forward to this game against Arizona. We are going to find out how good this team really is. We will know by Saturday night.

Offensive woes, inconsistency and turnovers have really screwed us, and are the major factor in our record (8-1). I am as fed up with the product we see on the field as the rest of you. I would really like to, as the rest of you say, enjoy the ride, but it's difficult when you're rooting for a team that isn't a lock for the Rose Bowl.
Being in the driver's seat is nice, but when you consider what it's taken to get there, is it really all that?
