This is a (very small) picture of what Romney Stadium looked like last night for the home and season opener of the Utah State Aggies. In spite of past disappointment, Amber and I went to support the boys in blue and white. During the first half, it was looking really good. The Aggie offense was quite effective and the defense stopped UNLV very well. The second half, however, was quite disheartening. It seemed like every time the UNLV quarterback touched the ball he was either completing a pass or running for several yards, and we couldn't get a drive going if our lives depended on it. After going from being up 10-3 to being down 16-10, it was a great feeling when we scored to tie it up at 16, but I think the missed extra point attempt took as much out of the team as it did the crowd and it was just rough after that. Anyway, by the end when we lost the ball on the kickoff return with 1:02 left and down by 7, I'm ashamed to say it, but we left. I love the Aggies and I want them to do well, but there's so much disappointment, it can be really frustrating. It's ok, at least my Logan Grizzlies are having a rip-roaring start to their season. I'll continue to bleed blue, even when our team is left black and blue.
