If doing what's best for Utah means not risking a loss, then
it's still hard to argue that Utah's not being chicken. Look, it's been said 100 times in the past 2 days. Colorado is still scheduling Colorado State. In case you haven't noticed, Colorado is in the PAC-12. They are in the same conference as Utah, which means they are subject to the EXACT same scheduling restraints as Utah. And yet, they continue to schedule Colorado State. Why? Because Colorado understands and respects the power of the the rivalry. Oh, and because, unlike Utah, they're not chicken!
