Las Vegas Bowl: 22 Mormon Boys Expose Themselves in Las Vegas

J. Michael MorrisSenior Analyst IDecember 21, 2008

The headline is really all I have, but isn't it funny?

Okay I'll try to go a little more in depth.

BYU's quest for perfection ended last night in an embarrassing, sloppy, turnover and penalty riddled high school quality football game. Their defensive line has once again proven themselves useless at putting pressure on a QB.

Just like the Brigham Young we have all grown to pity, the boys in blue once again showed their junk to the world instead of their inner light when confronted with a little opposition.

Sometimes temptation overwhelms good intentions. I think many of the players in the Las Vegas bowl, on both teams were still a little drunk at kickoff.

A combined 17 penalties, six turnovers and at least a dozen bad calls, many of them reviewed for proverbial hours, made this game a challenge of the losers. I can suck I can.

The officials certainly were plastered, or a PAC10 crew, which is redundant.

Arizona's star receiver Mike Thomas, by shoving his head coach after his second fumble of the evening, showed that we will have another spoiled diva at wideout in the NFL next year to challenge Ocho Cinco and T.O. for the king of stupidity crown.

Highlights of the game were that it was the first bowl win in a decade for Arizona and a great performance from their quarterback Willie Tuitama.

The good thing about a Quest for Perfection is that it never ends and it can never be accomplished, sort of like a quest for a national championship by a non-BCS school. Good luck Utah.

Brigham Young fans are generally fickle and only support a winning program. Many of them will push their blue sweatshirts to the bottom of the pile and sport red Utah Utes gear for the next couple of weeks.

BYU opens next season with senior QB Max Hall returning to face Florida State, but for now, those kids need to get out of Sin City and back to the safety and security of Provo to try and learn how to suceed in the real world.

The Mountain West Conference still has a chance to redeem themselves with TCU playing undefeated Boise State and, of course, the Utes against the Crimson Tide in the Sugar Bowl.
