I'm not sure I understand why BYU is even in the same gym with the Red Rocks. Utah's competition is on the national stage...Florida, Georgia, etc.

That said, CONGRATULATIONS to the Red Rocks...you represented the Utes well again this year. You are well deserving of loyalty of the Utah fan base. Well done!!


Good to see that people show up to the Huntsman Center to watch something... just not basketball.


Saw Utah vs. BYU three times in a row now. Brilliant and amazing competition. This is coming from a straight Mormon guy who usually likes to enjoy watching football, basketball and a bit of soccer and hockey here and there. The Red Rocks are quite the powerhouse and fun to watch. BYU had a number a bright spots too. Especially the BEAM!! It was really fun to be part of another amazing and enthusiastic crowd. Good stuff!

Wow, wow, wow

Just amazing! The athleticism and brilliance of the display last night was incredible. They deserve the attendance record and more.

Great job Red Rocks!!!

Ute Fan!

We've got gymnastics, yes we do!
We've got gymnastics, how 'bout you?


...soooo i heard more people showed up to watch gymnastics than a single Football game at Rice Ecles...any truth to this? haha


I just want to say that according to audience members, BYU looked way more solid than Utah that night. Of course, with judges deciding the outcome, the U is going to win at the U every time. But seriously...9.8s on beam for the U had three wobbles and 9.8s on beam for the Y were flawless routines...something not right about that.
But you can NOT say that BYU should not be allowed in the same arena as the U because those cougars sure know how to put up a fight even with unfair advantages for the U.
Way to go cougars!!

Right...the judges were biased, the refs don't like us, SDSU student section is bigoted. Blah, blah, blah.

BYU = blah, blah, blah. I'm tired of hearing it and I'm sure I'm not the only one. Anyone else out there tired of hearing BYU fans, players, coaches, administration, etc., etc., whine and complain??

If you didn't like the way the judges scored the contest why didn't you revert to the neanderthal ways of BYU and throw trash at them??

Gymnastics is all you got Utes..

It's a good thing ya'll got women's gymnastics to hold onto this years, otherwise it would just plain stink, to be a Ute-fan...Geez, what a shame, Women's gymnastics drew a bigger crowd that Men's basketball game last month...how sad, so very very sad to be a Ute-fan...YIPPIE!!! OUR women saved face for us this year...GO UTES!!!

Was that funny?! What were you trying to accomplish with your ridiculous post?

I guess you missed last months gymnastics meet at Byu. Additonally the 3 9.8's with Ute bobbles were scored the same as BYU 9.8 because of the difficlty of the Utes beam were far more difficult.

I don't know much about gymnastics, but in most sports, when you win by one point (ok, just over one point in this case), it does not warrant the kind of prideful comment you made ("I'm not sure I understand why BYU is even in the same gym with the Red Rocks"). I feel bad for you that gymnastics is the only sport you are better than BYU at this year, but that doesn't warrant little childish outbursts.

I am a BYU fan but with all due respect, the Utes have a fantastic gymnastics program and deserve some respect. Go Utah.


I used to be in gymnastics, and I love it thuogh I moved and am not in it anymore. But I think it is amazing that so many other people can succeed.

Tremendous Athletes

Gymnastics is extremely athletic and fun to watch...these young women deserve of the attention and support they are receiving. They certainly have my respect.

Congratulations to all of them.
