Hurtful, intended to be hurtful, it doesn't matter because the comment doesn't
fall under either category. Here's a term that might resonate with you, though,
'hypocrite.'You claim Ute fans are liable for inappropriate
behavior, yet you send out two volatile posts filled with insults and
disparaging remarks. Does that make any sense to you?If that's the
alternative to trying to be an objective fan, then I will pass. Bitterness and
hate for the other side isn't going to win you anymore games, but it sure can
say a lot about one's character.
Your 5th grade girlfriend? Please don't tell me that the Utah fans still
don't dream about the so called "glory" days under Majerus and a few good
seasons in football? The fact remains, the MWC has a horrible set
up and unless they begin to get better national coverage, excuse me, let's start
with better regional coverage, no one is really going to care too much about the
MWC teams. So, for now BYU is the dominating school in the conference that is
standing on the outside looking in.
To Tavernari...I apologize. I slammed you relentlessly at the beginning of the
year because of your shot selection. Now you're playing like an all around
star. Way to fill up all of the stat sheet. You can defend too. Great job.To Heath Schroyer...shut the heck up. You're a nutcase on the sideline. I
sat 4 rows up to your left last game and you're a Boylin clone. Show some
control. How do you expect your players to play with poise and control when you
need a straight jacket. Hint: Let your guys make a few mistakes on the floor
without getting the hook. They're playing scared and looking over their
shoulder. You need some coaching coaching.
I didn't say it was hurtful, I said it was "intended to hurt". If I was to
lable the comment I would call it clueless, myopic, ridiculous,
delusional...something like that. Oh, and objective fan, choose sides or sit
down. This game is not for you. We can go to service to get preached too.
Told you so.
Fine, chew on this one for a while instead, Kepkay driving hard for a layup in
the waning seconds when down by three. That's basketball for you.It
looks like the school with the most talent among all of the non-elite conference
schools doesn't seem to have the intelligence to match. In football or
basketball.Gymnastics though, well that's another story.
Sarcastically implying Sean Green is an MVP over Plaisted is hurtful? Geez, what
is this world coming to? I love the attitude of calling out Ute fans for their
inappropriate behavior, and then going on to label them as "3rd graders" and
"punks." That sure seems appropriate (sarcasm). Come on, fans on
both sides need to get some class. It is athletics we're discussing here.
Congrats to the Cougs, and for the sake of our local interests let's hope the
Utes come around soon.
You still dream about that? Geee!! I still dream about my 5th grade girlfriend.
Get over it, we're talking basketball
Lets see if this gets under Utah fan skin.FOURTH AND 18!Have a nice day (is that sarcastic or sincere?)
Hows you're team doing this year? It shows how pathetic you are to trash on the
cougs when your own teams can't back you up. How bout some kudos for the cougs
or maybe even cheering for them to go deep into the tourney to make the MWC look
good, you know just like you asked coug fans to do for you when you went dancing
and the cougs didn't. C'mon step up, practice what you preach.
You silly ute fan pretending to be sarcastic, looks like you have fellow fan who
believes you. But then thats typical 3rd grade behavior. Say something stupid
intended to hurt and then when somebody calls you on it you pretend that it was
a joke. I detest you kind of punks, always pushing buttons to get reactions,
then playing the innocent- I-was-just-joking- routine. Please keep cheering for
3-10 is still not good enough for someone that gets his education paid for for
playing basketball. You dont have to get so defensive on it, thats just the
truth. His shooting will hurt and you will lose some games. It is what it is.
let's see our Cougs win a few tournament games for a change. We can't seem to
win outside the MC.
PLAISTED has stepped up every game when it counts with free throws.. so I guess
we will see when the tourny rolls around huh? I would like to see you step up
with 5 seconds left and be down by 1 pt. what the heck are you talking about
with giving him the breaks? go cheer for the utes
How can you be sarcastic when all Ute fans believe it?
We can give him all the breaks in the world until it's tourney time, and Cougs
lose by 3 points and he goes 3-7 from the line.
I said that it should be a concern, I didnt bring him down. He had a great game
but it might hurt the Coogies in the future.
We swept the Utes in Football and Basketball, back to back years. And we have
won back to back Basketball and Football titles.
Trent Played GREAT LAST NIGHT. He rebounded well and went to the basket strong.
GIVE HIM a break with his free throws. The team won and plaisted had a great
double double. ALL YOU want to do is bring him down and remind us of his first
have free throws. BOTTOm LINE is ... BYU has a great inside game and great
shooters. GIVE THE BIG GUY a break and give him some credit. He is BY FAR the
best big man IN CONFERENCE and BYU should be thankful they have him.
"better to go and lose than sit home with a near .500 record?" I guess Cougars
would know a lot about that, huh? Going and losing in post-season play is the
Cougar story in basketball and football. Oh year, that's better.
I am no Utah fan but dont they teach you some humility at that school you go
cheer for? You win with class and you cheer with class. And, I'd be careful with
the use of words -- cuz 'always' is a pretty long time. Just a couple years ago,
that BYU team of yours wasnt as superior as you might think.
Utah is an exceptional school when it comes to being mediorcre! BYU will always
be superior. We will keep making news so you can keep posting your resentful
comments on our blogs.
Ya, Sean Green is probably the best player in the conference right now, Cummard
is just a step below him.
Nice work all around? I think you gotta look at the whole picture. While he had
a good game, you gotta look at his dismal free throw shooting yet again. Below
average if that. Good job overall, but the picture is a little tainted because
of that. Will cost the Cougars a game in the tourney. Bye bye in the first round
Does anyone know if Craig Thompson came out from under his "rock" to persent the
trophy?It wasn't in the paper, and I know he was too afraid to
present the football trophy.If not, can anyone tell me what he does
to command his pay?
Some guy named Al Bundy (obvious a real stake president's name to the 1980's
Married with Children fans) posted as a Stake President yesterday, inviting the
Utes to come play in their Stake Tourney, and many Utes were upset and
"offended". The offense should be one of being too gullible.I think that on both sides of this "holy war" there are way too many who
take this "way" over the top--too serious, and are quick to offend.Geeze, folks. it's a game and if we are going to let the successes and
failures of college aged athletes get in our craw, maybe some of us need to
chill a bit, take a toke from our smoke, and sit back a realize that whether BYU
or Utah wins does not make "YOU" a better or lesser person. Just because your
sweatshirt is Red or Blue, you still have a job, your home, your spoiuse, your
families and your values.Hey, BYU, go as deep in NCAA as you can
this year, because it makes every team in the MWC look better next year. I hope
both BYU and Utah make it to BCS Bowls and win over the next 5-years.
Trent Plaisted is a class act. Responded politely to Taylor's comment and didn't
take the bait to escalate the situation. Went to work with 23 points, 11
rebounds, 2 steals, a block and an assist. Good job, Trent, and nice work all
around. It's good to be a BYU fan!
U so funny Re: Utah stud. We (One post) bit so hard on your funny sarcasm. U
under my skin: that must be the nauseating sickness I've had this week.
I echo the comment above regarding Brandon Ewing, he is a solid player and his
post game comments were classy. Also in regards to the Taylor comments... It
was no big deal; it was purely said in fun..I can't imagine Plaisted took any
offense by the comment so I don't think us as fans should either. It's not like
he flipped Trent off (Joe Glenn) or something
I think they'll win an NCAA Tourney Game
It's always fun to see Ute fans trying to bait the BYU faithful into a war of
words; and pretty pathetic to see how many BYU fans take the bait... bottom
line... BYU is back to where it should be in football and basketball with an
even brighter future ahead... Utah is back to playing spoiler :) personally, as
a Utah graduate/lifetime BYU fan, I'd rather see Utah fighting for conference
championships with BYU every year, it would make beating them that much
sweeter!!!Go Cougs! 80 minutes of tough D in the big dance and you'll be
dancing in the Sweet 16!
Man maybe the Cougars can win a tournament game...maybe NOT. OVERRATED.
If you really think a Ute fan is serious when claiming Sean Green should be
named MVP over Plaisted, then you bit, and you bit hard. Is it me or is it too
easy to get under a cougar's skin?
It's funny for all the talk we hear about BYU and their superior educational
opportunities, they still can't seem to separate sarcasm from truth.
I'm guessing you are a Utah fan. Well, I to agree that it is time
that BYU wins a NCAA tournament game, and I it is going to happen this year!!As for Utah, atleast you have gymnastics!GO COUGS!!
Good Job. I predicted the "Wyoming by 3" Sorry to get your panties in a bunch
byu fans. Now beat TCU and win some in Vegas and NCAA tourney. I'll cheer for
ya if you make it to the sweet sixteen.
better to go and lose than sit at home with a near .500 record.
BYU ALL THE WAY!!Love reading the comment on J Taylor...Next time:
Just come and PLEASE LEAVE YOUR MOUTH AT HOME!!ON TO LAS
VEGAS...BABY!! After TCU of course!!
In the past, back when the Utes were coached by Majerus and several MWC teams
(including BYU) were competitive, the MWC had a national presence and winning
the conference was significant. Now that the MWC has taken the conference away
from the fans and the level of competition has dropped (especially the Utes),
BYU winning the MWC is no more than "big frog, little pond." Cougars will crow
about it, of course, but no one but their fans thinks they can even win in the
first round of the NCAAs.
Every week naysayers made dire predictions for the Cougars in both football and
basketball. Though it was never believable, it was especially fun to watch the
Utes try to back up their talk. But when all was said and done, the Cougars got
it done. The more other teams/fans talked, those teams/fans just
showed how they know BYU is the team to beat. With the cougars on top of the
mountain, nothing has changed. They are still the team to beat. They will be
the favorites to win the conference in football and basketball, again next year.
Oh, it's great to be a Cougar.BTW- Taylor made his
comments in jest, when a reporter was egging him on about what he had to say to
BYU. That was in good fun, as again, he realized how absurd it was to think
after beating Utah, that he should now call out BYU. But laughing as he said
it, he went ahead and joked. It was no big deal, and out of context probably
helped Plaisted to focus. Whatever works! Taylor will probably laugh at the
next reporter, instead of take the bait, even if it is just to humor him.
Ute fan, you're very funny. Go Cougs! I'll be there for ya when we can't get
double digit wins (thankfully those days are gone) and I will ALWAYS expect a
win in the big dance. No McNamara this year so let's do this!
Ya of course he is, 20 points against a team who hasn't won a conference game
all year. Ya of course that makes him the MVP. Where was he when they needed the
big shots to win all those close games that they lost this year? If he was the
MVP they maybe would have one a couple of thoses.At least Plaisted hit 2 big
free throws to put BYU ahead of New Mexico and win the game. Also noone even
talks about Trent for MVP. Anyone who watches BYU basketball knows the L.
Cummard is by far a better choice for MVP.
Sean Green? Against Colorado State? Scoring 20 against a 6 win team (0 wins in
conference) is a real accomplishment! Is it just me or are Ute fans
consistently commenting on BYU articles? Read about your own team or at least
make logical comments.
BYU needs a shut down point guard to make it to the sweet 16.
It seems like yesterday that Urban and Giac were supposed to lead the Ute's to
glory for years to come. Whoops, so much for that! Go Rose and Bronco! Not a
good year to be a Ute fan:(
Plaisted who? Sean Green dropped over 20 points on Colorado State! MWC MVP!
Sean Green should be the MVP Plaisted? Lets not kid ourselves
Is it me, or is Brandon Ewing the classiest act in the MWC? He is always heaping
praise on all of his opponents. Too bad he has no help at WYO - he would have
been all MWC.
I'm a BYU fan and I want the titles to keep coming. I just want a little
entertainment and drama along the way. It's no fun if there is no competition.
As for the "wave your arms comment" , the game was a blow out so that typically
takes the crowd out of it. The Cougars were just taking care of business.
BYU will go to the sweet sixteen this year. You heard it first from Pedro. Vote
for me when the Cougs make it that far.
Ya I completely spaced football, we won both football and basketball
championships with underclassmen. The future looks very bright.
Why was there no interview with Joseph Taylor after the game? I'd love to see
who he warns next. "Watch out, my 3 fouls are coming for you!" Great idea
calling out one of the best big guys in the country!
There is just nothing better for me in College Sports than a great Cougar
Football & Basketball year. Both in the same year! It doesn't get any better
than that. My BYU pride is soaring! Thanks Cougars!
But the cougars still are lousy, and their fans too...Negativity
Utes, let's keep the negativity!!!
Good. NOW WIN AN NCAA TOURNAMENT GAME!!!
and don't forget their longest winning streak in the nation in football!
How could it be boring, I am glad the cougs are walking away with the titles.
It is fun to watch them beat up on the rest of the league, it reminds me of the
80's, the cougs are the class of the league. Keep the titles coming.
He did have a good game but beware cougar fans. 3-10 from the line is going to
be a concern
What can I say another conference championship in the book, Oh and by the way
were packed with freshmen, sophmores and juniors, can you say five in a row.
Where did the Utes go, What happened to Boylen for coach of the year.
Where is that person who predicted this? It was a 20 point difference, with BYU
destroying Wyoming. Please remind me to not talk to you when predicting the big
dance. The nice thing about this is that no matter what happens
now, BYU will happily sit through this long off season knowing they defeated
utah in football, swept them in bball, have the nations longest home court
winning streak, and have conference championships all in the last two years!
Ah, tis great to be on top again! This makes life even greater
than it already is!
THE COUGARS ARE BACK!!!!
Hey guys, take it easy on Taylor. He just wanted Plaisted to know he was there.
I'm sure if he never said that then Plaisted would have had no idea who he
was... Even now I'm sure Plaisted was wondering if he even made it to the game.
Poor bugger... haha!RE: Boring..Get over it, there's
nothing YOU can do to change that! Someone's gotta lead the MTN West.. Might as
well be BYU!
forty something games in a row at the marriot center, They really should wave
their arms behind the basket that just makes me sick that they didnt last night,
New game for PBS, Where in the world is Taylor? Attaboy Trent!
Yeah ya dumb Cougar fans! Start waving your arms and maybe your team will start
winning some championhsips . . . oh, wait.
I am really proud of the Cougars in all sports. I love the coaches too. They
really have integerety and class. I hope they are there for a long time to come.
I think Vuk deserves more credit than he's received. He has been a solid part
of this team for several years, don't discard him becasue of an injury. An
article about him and his opportunities in Europe would be great. Des News give
him some press!
I am not a BYU fan but scored some tickets at work. I just wanted to comment on
how lame the crowd was. Most places will stand up and waive their arms behind
the opponents basket when they go to shoot freethrows. Cougar fans just sat
there with their arms folded. Start serving some Red Bull or something.
That comment was so overrated. J Taylor had a big grin on his face and was just
showing some gamesmanship. Watching it on the MTN last night I had to laugh
that the media blew that one up. BYU fan, but props to J Taylor. No harm
intended and no harm done.
This is getting boring watching BYU wrap up conference championships in football
and basketball before the regular season is even over. The rest of the Mountain
West needs to step it up and have some pride.
"Hey, Plaisted I'm coming from Wyoming. Watch Out. Boy those chairs are sure
comfortable for most of the game. Guess I better keep my mouth shut."
He didn't play last night because of an injury, but you'd think that Ivanovic
could have at least been mentioned in an article about the seniors.
Now I know why you told Plaisted you were coming.Otherwise, he would
not have even known you were there.Way to show it on the court.
Way to go Joseph Taylor of Wyoming. You really showed Trent who the better
player is. Please don't call out any of our players again. When you told Trent
you were comming, you weren't kidding. 2 points, 3 rebounds, 3 fouls. Trent's 23
points and 11 rebounds don't even come close to your numbers.
Let's go D-News reporters, you made a big deal about 'Tell Plaisted I'm coming"
before the game, let's hear it for Plaisted after the game. If you don't play
off that story now, you've failed jouralism 101!
go cougars, and the best of luck!!!!!!!!
That was awesome, being there for the Champs. Tavs was great. We will be good
next year too. We have so many good players, send some more of em in. NCAA's
are waiting and so is Vegas Baby. Remember, what happens in Vegas, shoots us to
the next level. They say you can't beat Vegas. BYU WILL BEAT VEGAS IN VEGAS.
Hey Lonnie Kruges, ever heard of The B. Y. Cougs. Big LEE, Thats pretty good
odds. Five seed baby. Oh Baby, It feels good to be in the Coagar Club! Tell
Wayne Newton The Suds is coming to town.
We are proud of our Cougars! What makes this so sweet is you were picked to win
the conference, so all year you've been playing with a huge target on your back,
in addition to defending the home court. This is a sweet sweet championship.
Your are ready to ADVANCE!
Oh what a happy day! I wonder if I dare wear my BYU apparel today here in
Wyoming? I think I'll wear it with pride! Way to go Cougs what a season! What a
year period for BYU Football and Basketball!
This team has dominated the conference and tied for the most wins in regular
season--and I have only been able to see but a few games on TV. Clearly, the
conference deal with the MTN is the worst. So we have the best of teams and the
worst TV deal ever. If we'd been on TV as often as other ranked teams we would
have a higher ranking too. Don't expect the NCAA tournament selection committee
to give BYU a good seeding. It will be the same as usual with a 7 or 6 at best.
BYU will need to play and not worry about they can't control.
Way to go, Cougars! Back-to-back, baby!
"Tell Plaisted I'm coming," said by Taylor...RIGHT!! ANYWAYS, Great game by BYU
and to Murdock & Burgess...GOOD JOB!!
Way to Go Coogs, it's been a fabulous seaosn! Best of luck in the playoffs!
