Utah is now a red state

The results are in. After beating BYU on Nov. 22, the University of Utah can claim the best football team in the state.
The Utes annihilated the Cougars by a score of 48-24. The Utes were ranked seven in the nation going into the game, and BYU 14. With the win over the Cougars, Utah clinched the Mountain West Conference Championship, a trip to a BCS bowl, and the Beehive Boot, which is given to the best college football team in the state of Utah.

Does it really matter the strength of schedule? I mean the last time I checked a win was a win and a loss was still a loss. It doesn’t matter if you lose to the best team in the country or the very worst team in the country.

The Eagle games

It never ceases to amaze me how much flack our little staff has received over this year’s edition of The Eagle.  Despite criticism from the Propaganda Rag and our editor-in-chief sporting a marijuana sweatshirt in his newspaper photo, last year’s paper was largely ignored by students and staff alike.
