Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Is anybody else excited for the beginning of the BYU football season? Do you think we will be good? And will we finally beat Utah this year???

-Mr. Wampanoag, who is counting the days until college football starts

A:

Dear Mr. Wampanoag,

No, no, and no.

Love,

Luciana

A:

Dear Wôpanâak,

I'm excited, but mostly just because I enjoy going to BYU sporting events. I don't care too much about whether we win or lose (though winning is nice), but I enjoy going to athletic events, and I enjoy following BYU sports. As to whether or not we'll be good, I haven't paid much attention to it. And whether we'll beat Utah finally? I sincerely hope so.

Keep it real,
Sherpa Dave

A:

Dear you,

I find myself less and less excited for college football as the years go by, but I do think BYU will be decent this year. I would say 9 or 10 wins is a safe assumption. It will be interesting to see how Tanner Mangum plays after sitting a lot of last season. I will probably end up watching the Utah game because it has been interesting of late. I can't tell you how the game will go, or else there is no reason for them playing. However, if you need some betting odds, I'm giving BYU a 53% chance of winning the Holy War.
