    Dear Mr. Wise Older Brother -

    Your branded Cougar victories certainly were sore moments for loyal Utes.

    Be sure to hold on to those moments my Cougar friend.

    You'll need them to buoy you as the Utes take their place on the main stage of college football, while your Cougars wallow in their misguided foray into the world of mid-major independence.

    And, hey... at least you'll be able to see one Utah football team play in your neck of the woods every year.

    "I love how Cougars name their victories."


    BYU has had so many memorable sporting events, that the names help us distingusih a few of our extra special events, like:

    "the Doink"

    "Harline is still open"

    "4th and 18"

    "George is still running"

    Ripping the hearts out of Utah fans like Howard S. is always worthy of a name.

    Of the two most memorable events, however, neither involved Utah and only one has a name:

    --"The Miracle Bowl"

    --Ainge's game-winning drive against Notre Dame in 1981 being the other.

    Two of the most memorable events in NCAA football and basketball history -- 30 years later, replays are still being shown.

    Not a lot of Utes bashing our Cougar basketball team on these sites! I wonder why? Maybe because we're headed for another 25+ wins and they'll be lucky to get 10.

    The ute losing streak against the cougs will continue. Are they scheduled play next year?

    Howard! Don't be ignorant. Where was the facemask call? Answer that!--What facemask??

    I love how Cougars name their victories.

    I suggest "Magic-in-the-Booth" for this years San Diego State victory.

    Or how about "Fumble?-what-Fumble?"
