Just Lose Maybe?

18 11 2009

Al Davis is known for saying, “just win baby!”  It is usually your ultimate goal in any type of sporting event to win.  This Friday night however, that is not the case for the Utah State University football team.  The Aggies are welcoming Boise State to Romney Stadium in a game that will be televised on ESPN 2.  You might be thinking how would it be good for the Aggies to lose, well the answer is money.

Money isn’t everything, it’s the only thing if you’re a college football program and USU is a program that could definitely use more.  As you are probably well aware the Broncos are fighting to get a BCS bid and along with that bid would come a big chunk of change for the conference.  That money would be divided among all the teams in the WAC, including USU.  This begs the question should USU lay down for the BSU?

If Boise St. wins on Friday night it won’t come as a shock to anybody, in fact if they don’t win by three touchdowns Boise St. might go down in the polls.  So therein lies the dilemma if you’re an Aggie, my feelings are give it everything you’ve got, but if Boise gets a two touchdown lead then what do you do?  Do you still give it your all or do you tank on purpose, however wrong it might be it would probably be the best thing for the program.  USU won’t tank on purpose, but then again they might not have to, or who knows maybe they’ll win and cost themselves a whole lot of money.
