You bring up a point I thought about. I think Petersen liked himself more at BSU then he did at UW. At BSU he had the real OKG guys. At UW he was dealing with a different breed for the most part. He was getting kids with eyes on playing Sunday and UW was a step stone on the way. Where as at BSU the players were so thankful just to be playing at such a school as BSU. I have a hunch that the Jake Haener vs Jake Eason really weighed on him because for once he went against his principles, beliefs, and intuition. He believed Haener was a better fit, and for once he compromised when he never had to before. Just a thought.I did read 'time to recharge' in one of the pieces I read....burnout is real in any high pressure position in any business.
Guessing he'd like a breather, or has another job in the pipeline down the road.
Either way, I liked him better at Boise St.
Good luck to him.
Utah is a more complete team and actually has a chance against OSU or LSU, which ever ends up #1. But according to paul finebaum "The country does not want to see Utah in the playoff".Utah at #5 in the CFP rankings tonight.
Oregon at #13
Oklahoma at #6 versus #7 in the Big 12 title game
Finebaum is a poster child for the the problem of the west coast college football programs not being acknowledged by the media. Well him, and the ineptitude at the top of the overpaid, greedy, delusional PAC-12 leadership. Larry Scott is happy with water-polo and tennis wins, but while making hay off of football, ignores the importance of promoting the Schitt out of it and any of the teams in his conference outside of CA or the Ducks. He propagates the PR problem with Pac-12 football at a huge cost to the member universities!Utah is a more complete team and actually has a chance against OSU or LSU, which ever ends up #1.
