September 19th was our first home game. We went to the Lavell Edwards Stadium to support our football team, the Cougars.

You might ask why we didn't watch the game on TV and hang out with our friends as usual?

I'd say...our family had missed a whole lot of fun games, especially the NCAA football games for the past couple of years. 

If we ever miss one game, I might graduate and won't be able to see their performance again. I will regret for not sponsoring the Cougars as being a true color for years....

Talking about live experience, we've been to so many wonderful Utah games.

We used to go to every single game in the U of U Rice-Eccles Stadium (while I was a graduate student there). Since the price was low ( 7 bucks a student/spouse/dependence per game and the season pass was not the requirement) and the Ute's previous head coach Urban Meyer ( now national #1 Gator's head coach) kept a record of 14-game winning streak at that time, we kind of knew what quality/price we were looking for...

The Cougars were playing really well during the past few years. You may find out the season outcomes by googling Mountain West Conference Title or Las Vegas Bowl.

They played Oregon Ducks in 2006, UCLA Bruins in 2007, and Arizona Wildcats in 2008 in Vegas every December.

This year the Cougars has begun at a pretty good standing, #20, first cracked the nations #3 Oklahoma 14-13 at the Dallas Cowboy Stadium (then ranked #9 on Week One pools), and smashed Tulane 54-3 in the Lousiana Superdome (then ranked #7 on Week Two polls). 

Well, let's take a close look....

The Cougars' defense disappointed everybody at the beginning of the 3rd quarter.The FSU didn't allow them to have any chance to touch the ball, soI didn't see any interception from the Cougars. FSU successfully converted many 3rd and 4th down....and completed lots of beautiful touchdowns.

It was getting dark

Finally, FSU upset the Cougars 54-18 and snapped the 18-game home winning streak in front of more than 64,000 Cougars fans (including me)!

How sad.......

After this game, BYU dropped from No.7 to No. 20.

BYU Ranked No. 19 and 20 in National Polls


 We won another games later.

哇!! 真壯觀

這是不景氣的美國嗎?

難以想像哩~~~~~~

小孩住的大學城是個高度學習與組織性強的地方除了教職員就是來自世界各地的學生

一方面不少長春藤教授回母校任教教導學生正確利用時間及有效的讀書方法在知識及品德上陶養學生另一方面這兒幾乎都是家庭背景單純的好學生每天遵守老師的指導雖然時間排得很緊湊生活卻過得相當豐富

大學生的學費通常不需助學貸款就可支付甚至比台灣的私立大學便宜不用父母操心而大部份的學生都能申請到獎助學金或拿到在校工作的機會

學長看到的景象的確不受不景氣影響

Ha Ha

As I know that cougar has another meaning which has something to do with the lady over 40......and  ......flirt with young guy.

Just want to cheer you up

Well, I always call this roommate Big Brother. Does that count?  

Maybe I'll repent after I am 40. I may call him Younger Brother.......
