Utah writer actually says they will miss watching the Utes play in Laramie

+

Lee Benson of the Deseret News says that he will miss the trips to Laramie and the rivalry between the Utes and Cowboys. This has not been the typical sentiment for Utah fans or writers so this is a nice refresher. This a great article that fans of both teams should take the time to read. With 106 years of history between the two teams it will be quite a change next year. The main thing that visiting coaches and players complain about Laramie is the weather. Snow, wind, rain, cold - you name we got it. There is now denying that the weather can change quickly in the high plains. Do Cowboy fans care? No, it is called home field advantage. If a visiting team is worried about playing in Laramie because of the weather that is just another plus for the Cowboys who also have the benefit of playing at 7220 feet. It's a football game not a vacation. Bowl games are for warm weather and umbrellas in your drink.
