      So, Columbus news is focusing on temporing the Buckeye fans’ disappointment of being outside-looking-in on the CFP, which is apparently their mindset instead of embracing going to the traditional Big-Ten Champion’s bowl game.   Even the writer can’t resist closing the article by proffering opinions on the CFP they are missing-out on.  May explain why Ute fans are able to scoop up so many tix from OSU…

      Next couple weeks are going to be interesting to see how many of the OSU WR players bug out of the Rose Bowl. Losing Olave, Wison, Smith would be similar to Utah losing Kuithe, Kincaid, and Covey. Maybe worse.

        Smith-Njigba is a Freshman (due to covid year) but has only been there 2 years so he will likely play because he can’t be drafted next year.

          And he’s their leading receiver this year. Gonna be a tough one.

            Good catch. Smith would be a great match up for CP when Utes go to man coverage. I suspect Utah will give OSU a lot of chaotic coverage looks and the underneath zone. Giving KW and his staff a month to prepare is huge.

      They’re a spoiled fanbase/team that’s in natty or bust mode every year. Their rival just beat them for first time in a decade and is now in the spot they wanted to be. Utah fans shouldn’t get too worked up over them being apathetic about backing their way into the Rose Bowl. Just enjoy the ride.

      Utah and Ohio State have drastically different goals and expectations. And that’s OK.

      Personally, I hope the Ohio State team is as disappointed as their fans and beat writers. Shades of the 2008 Sugar Bowl are starting to emerge.

      I’ll be over-the-moon happy with a Rose Bowl win over Ohio State regardless of how disappointed/apathetic they are and/or how many of their players opt-out.

      I hope their fans and team both show. I’d like to see how we measure up. It’s exciting to get to play a top 3 program. Their fans over on 11 warriors have been respectful, cool even. Harshest jab I’ve seen taken is about our “crappy uniforms.”

      Came across this “Who’s Going to the Rose Bowl” thread this morning on a tOSU message board.

       

      General consensus from the fanbase seems to be ‘meh’, and I hope that carries over to the team.

          No name brand is a bit harsh, but this attitude is reflective of fans of blue blood programs towards non-bluebloods.

          I’m good with it, I don’t have any kind of inflated view of what Utah is and how it fits into the college football landscape.

          Utah is a solid P5 program with a reputation for being a physical, tough team that regularly overperforms relative to expectations.

          Utah can better its brand by winning games against CFB elite. Utah has gotten a lot of mileage out of Sugar Bowl win against Alabama. It’s still mentioned by national pundits today.

          This game against Ohio State is another opportunity to improve Utah’s brand. I am thrilled about the opportunity to do so.
