I am sorry, but that is such a stupid comment. I think it's more a sign of respect than fear. When Utah plays BYU, there is a higher chance they could lose than if they play Weber. I think that's pretty obvious. There are greater chances of injuries and the coaches and team can't start game planning for games coming up in the next week or down the road. There are many advantages to playing a couple of easy games per year. I don't see why you guys can't see that. Utah respects BYU and sees that they can't overlook them or run them over and even in the best circumstances, they are probably 60% favorites. Not scheduling the game isn't fear. It's just math. Are SEC teams afraid to play teams west of the Mississippi in road games? Of course not. But they understand that those games don't help them achieve their ultimate goals so the risk outweighs the rewards. Therefore, they are being smart, not scared.
