Let's analys your email - very typical of ALL zoob posts.

First paragraph: Y'n about how many Utes are posting on tds articles

Second paragraph: Gloss about personal achievements or morally superior life.

Third Paragraph; Lemming like support and dogma regurgitation.


Hedgie....if I may "analyze" my own post (not sure it's an email.....):

1st Paragraph: Simple observation and fact (supported by your multiple posts).

2nd Paragraph: You're stating my graduating from BYU is a personal achievement? Thanks. The rest is simply your inference, wrong or right, about the morally superior life. (Not sure where you get that assumption).

3rd & 4th Paragraphs: The endowment of scholarships represents all three items (Tradition, Spirit, and Honor). Sorry you have a problem with those admirable concepts. Finally, because I am a fan, and not a hater, I do cheer on MY team rather than denigrate other teams. Therefore, I do hope BYU beats Washington.

When is kickoff for the Utes?

@ Hedgy Wedgy -

Your constant comments on EVERY article on BYU caused me to wonder if you paid attention to Utah articles. When I looked @ those articles, sure enough you have commented on almost every article there also....

How long 'till your unemployment runs out?



The utes will be fed from the labors of other teams. You know! Southern Cal, Cal, UCLA, Washington, Stanford etc. Do you honestly think the utes can match them with revenue? It'll be just like the MWC & WAC where they fed off of BYU for decades. Utah grew and developed because of BYU. Look at their coaches, game plans, and Hawaiian recruiting. Much of their revenue came from BYU, and you continue the insults. WOW!


Let me help here. Hedgehog is still living in his mothers basement apartment...rent free although she has asked the dropout to pay something towards the weekly cleaning and food bills. He has no desire to get off the free couch to go to the game, nor does he have the money to buy a ticket. He will catch the bus to the stadium, dress up like a chicken hawk who acts like an Indian, yell profanities at the Pitt fans who show up and then go home and tell everyone what a great time he had at the game.

He also has no clue who John Lemming was, so he mis-uses his name in a very old attempt at allegory. The only regurgitation of anything is his dismal attempts to post something of worth. He never posts on topic, because generally he doesn't comprehend what is written despite the fact that papers are written to accomadate an 8th grade education. He can't name five Ute QB's to even participate in the conversation nor does he have the ability to tell you the names and numbers of five current players.

But he can talk trash.



Seriously! Most of us BYU fans actually rout for the Utes except when we are playing them. As an athlete that competed for BYU I still cheered for Utah even when they had, hands down, the rudest fans out there. I never blamed their coaches or athletes just their fans that are so caught up with BYU that they can not even read their own universities articles.

Oh and please refrain from calling me self righteous etc etc, you have never seen me bash your team, just give them respect - in fact I hope they win tonight!

Please I have read so many of your comments, please drop it, go back to Utah's articles and cheer on your team! Go Cougars!!! Go Utes!!!

BYU, Now Serving Humble Pie

Leave it to byu fans to spend most of their time on a byu article writing about Utah Fans. Don't you have a game to get ready for?


@ Otis Spurlock

How many utes sport a super bowl ring, especially a former ute QB?


Ok, I thought another response to Hedgie about my first post was appropriate:
(This one is in simple words and in a voice to which he might relate)

Analysis #2

Paragraphs 1 & 2: "Why are these U bugs always on my Y windshield?"
Paragraph 3: I'm better than U. I went to college, on scholarship, and graduated.
Paragraph 4: Tradition, spirit, and honor. (Google it!)
Paragraph 5: When is kickoff for the Utes?

Ouch! I threw out my back stooping down so low.

Andy Tomasso

Hahaha, thanks Otis, dropping names that NOBODY has heard of, unless you cheer for the team. eric weddle? Alex Smith? you forgot Brian Johnson.



Explain to me why "zoob" is supposed to be an insult. What are you? From the 1950's?! Thanks for the laugh, Grandpa.

I'd tell you to enjoy the game tonight, but we all know you will be parked in front of your computer making silly comments on BYU posts!


I think this article talks about a great idea. First of all, I remember reading about the endowment scholarships back during the Crowton years. Stanford has all of their sports endowed and so never has to spend a dime on any scholarships. With that kind of dough year in and year out, BYU could put in a better ventilation system in the Smith Fieldhouse. That track is stinky! (The stench of our forefathers). Plus I love the idea of those who have gone before paving the way for those who will follow. What a terrific idea!

Andy Tomasso,

As a BYU Fan I am ashamed that you admit you have never heard of Larry Wilson. According to ESPN, Sporting News and every other sports organization in the world, Larry is arguably one of the best football players to EVER play in the NFL. Any person with a basic knowledge of football knows who Larry Wilson is.

Have you ever heard of Muhamad Ali or Babe Ruth or Lance Armstrong?

Andy Tomasso

Yeah I've heard of Muhamad Ali and Babe Ruth, and even Lance Armstrong in fact he's still in the news. Larry Wilson not so much. He entered the hall of fame before I was born. Anyone with basic football knowledge born in 1950 knows who he is.


I think this is great for BYU to honor their past QB's. BYU has put some great QB talent on the college gridiron. All teams should honor the great players that made their teams at one point in history.... great. Maybe not all the names are household, but you can never forget the old school players that played for the love, showing more heart than any player today. This passion should never be ignored, or denied, but always remembered.
