The University of Hawaii football team is in Provo, Utah, for tomorrow's nationally televised game with Brigham Young. BYU coach Gary Crowton says there is no revenge factor for his team, which took a 72-45 loss to Hawaii at Aloha Stadium last December.
Clipped from the Hark Herold in Provo, Utah:
Coach: Revenge is not a factor (wink, wink)
Imagine your most embarrassing moment.
I've got plenty.
There's the time I entered the wrong restroom at Disneyland and, preoccupied in thought, didn't realize the gaffe until standing in line for a stall smelling of perfume.
Or it could be that college intramural flag football game when a guy grabbed my nylon shorts with the flag and ripped them both away. You get the picture.
For Gary Crowton and BYU football, it was Dec. 8, 2001, at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. That's where a 12-0 team played one game too many and ended up as the roast pig turned to charcoal on the spit. Wrong stall. Pants pulled down.
That day after the anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was one of the worst whippings ever of a Cougar team. Hawaii set a gob of records, including an NCAA mark for return yardage. The Warriors simply drilled BYU. The Cougs had some excuses but those don't end up in the box score of that 72-45 Hawaii win that had BCS moguls snickering behind cigars and bank accounts.
