Ethics Count!

Ethics in today’s business world is hard to find. With some of the largest corporations failing across the nation, as well as worldwide, it’s not hard to see why. CEOs have been getting increasingly larger salaries and bonuses while the companies they were supposed to be running started crumbling right underneath them. We all heard about Merrill Lynch’s CEO John Thain who, as the company was barely afloat, paid more than one million dollars to refurnish his office.

Advanced Restoration isn’t close to being a multi-billion dollar business, but we do understand the power of ethics.

13-0 BCS Busters!

Nobody thought it would happen but the Utes have done it again! An amazing win by the University of Utah in the Sugar Bowl has shown the world the Mountain West Conference is a force to be reckoned with. Utah beat Alabama's Crimson Tide 31-17 for their second BCS bowl game win.

Utah dominated the Crimson Tide with three touchdowns in the first quarter alone. Alabama got their name in the game in the second quarter with a field goal right off the start, but just couldn't keep it going.

After Utah's win many tried to blame the loss on the fact that Alabama didn't have Andre Smith on the offensive line to protect John Parker Wilson, who was sacked eight times in the game. But in reality, Utah played an awesome game. They held off Alabama's running game and blew past their defense. Utah definitely proved they were there to play and make a name for themselves.

Utah wanted to be there and they were excited to have the opportunity where Alabama was still brooding over their lose to Florida and the fact they didn't make it to the championship game.

Utah was the only team that had an undefeated season and should have been ranked number one but with all the National Championship bureaucracy, Utah landed at second on the AP poll with Florida at number one. Utah's head coach Kyle Whittingham was awarded the National Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association.
