I'm a firm believer in remember and respecting the past. Ancient's saying of remember the past and respecting the future (or however it goes) fit's my mold well. I know where I came from and am proud of my white trash heritage, mainly due to what I learned along the way and the highs and lows and the emotions and bonds associated with them. The tiffs with family and friends along the way.
The BYU game has been very similar, a great rivalry, no question. Plenty of those highs and lows, plenty of good old fashioned fist fights.
So to me the question is, does that mean I want to go back to my town of 500 and move back into the 700 sq ft house and live with 7 other people? HELL NO! I wouldn't trade my childhood for anything, but I'm also making damn sure my children experience a better one than I had.
They BYU rivalry will always be a part of those that experienced it. But we're growing up now and though at first I didn't want to see it go away, at some point you have to move away so you can progress in life.
I think it was PattyBruin who came on here right before the press conference and told us all to act like we belonged and not even for us to mention BYU. She was right. Time for us to move on!
