As far as the Utah/TCU game this Saturday goes, BYU is in a win-win situation.
If Utah wins, BYU has a shot at another MWC championship (if we beat Utah).
If TCU wins, TCU has an easy road to the BCS (possibly national championship) and the MWC gets prestige and takes another step toward joining the AQ ranks.
The question every BYU fan needs to ask him- or herself is this: What is more important?
Selfish BYU fans want Utah to win on Saturday. They don't think about the MWC, and couldn't care less about how the league looks. They want BYU to get another conference championship because we're BYU and we deserve to be at the top of the mountain every year.
The team-player BYU fans want TCU to win. They want the MWC to continue to shake the BCS coconut tree. They recognize that TCU is ranked No. 4 in the BCS standings, and has a shot (albeit a very long shot) to play in the national championship. This could do wonders for our conference prestige, and would all but lock up an AQ spot when the BCS conferences are re-evaluated.
Personally, I lean more toward TCU. I hope the Frogs win on Saturday, because I would like to see them play one of the best teams in the country. I would like to see the MWC get their chance to be represented at the highest level. It reflects well on BYU, and besides, TCU deserves it.
