The defense won the game last year for byu not Max Hall. Offense was horrible
for the Y
Ah yes, the SL media's obsession with Max Hall lives on. Did anybody from the
Uinversity of Utah administration apologize to Max Hall's family for the FACT
that they required a police escort from RES two years ago? I didn't think so.
Kudos to Hall for calling out the U administration. Too bad the SL media didn't
have the guts to do it themselves.
Dew,How many D's does Bronco have? Just curious?Go
MUSSing with U | 10:42 a.m. Nov. 22, 2010 Ute fans can hate BYU
without playing a rivalry game every year. It's easily to hate BYU.
Seriously, Lee? You're still talking about Max Hall? Let it go, man.
it will be a close game and Bronco will make sure his D's will be ready
Isiah Thomas, Max Hall, Danny Ainge, ...that was sports hate fun.How can
anyone hate Jake Heaps? Now, it's just a game that has no bearing on the outcome
except some heckling at church.
I don't know what it was about Max, but even before his famous rant it seems
that he just got under everyone's skin. He caught it from his opponents, from
the media, and even from BYU fans. I used to admire how well he handled it,
until he demonstrated that he really wasn't handling it well at all.Jake seems to be just the opposite. Who else could lose to Utah State and
still be able to walk the streets of Provo? People just like him. That does take
some of the fun out of this week's game, but maybe the fun has gone overboard
Cougarnate,The odds makers were pretty much right on with the SDSU
game.I think 10 points is about right....I'll take the Utes minus
the points and collect on Sunday.
The secret for ute football. Take their band members and dress them in football
uniforms than have them play the game. The cougars will have a lesser blowout
victory.COUGS 34Utes 17The Last Days are
here & HedgeHog will finally be silenced.
BYU is an early 10 point dog in this game. I'm all over that. There is no way
utah beats BYU by 10 or more. The way both teams are playing this game is going
to come down to the wire once again. I don't know if the Cougs will beat the
bew's, but I am very confident, that it won't be by 10 or more. The bew's aren't
playing any better than BYU right now.
@Sloppy JThe uproar over Maxine's comments was hysterical. Isn't
that also all part of the fun? While I was embarrassed that someone who
supposedly represented my faith would say such stupid things, I thought his
comments were wildly entertaining. The "uproar" I manufactured was
solely for the purpose to taunt my self-righteous friends at BYU. The f-bomb he
dropped on camera was also delicious! Indeed BYU needs a lot more Max Halls.
Beer showers are also great! Keep 'em coming!
How funny we read this article and I can tell Lee is having fun reading what our
remarks are being posted. Class act Lee. BYU is your worse NIGHTMARE
YEWTES. GO COUGARS!
The uproar over Max's horrible breach of etiquette was (and is) hysterical. No
matter who you root for, he gave you something to get all worked up about. Who
needs bland, measured comments? BOOO-RING!!Hate, schmate. It's
sports hate, people . . it's not REAL hate. Sports hate adds spice to the games,
especially when the games themselves have been as awesome as most recent U-BYU
games. Out of the last 15, how many have been downright classics? 10? It's been
ridiculously etertaining football and it's a shame the rest of the country
doesn't care.I played hoops for Ogden High and HATED Ben Lomond . .
from the players to the drill team to the special ed kids. But it was sports
hate, and even then I kinda knew it. If I saw any of those guys today I'd invite
them to lunch and we'd have a laugh.
Max was only right about a very few when he made his no-class statements. Same
can be said of a few of those who profess to be fans of the other school. There will always be a few of them on both sides. Whatever happens to
the rivalry in the future, it will be one of the most important games to the
players of both teams for years to come. This because of all the Utah HS players
who are recruited by both teams and because of all the BYU-Utah ties within the
coaching staffs. Get over it haters and enjoy the game. Looking forward to the
one this year.
I hate the tds as much as anyone and love doing it. But, MUSSing you's comment
would be funny if not so pathetic. "and many Utah fans were still more
interested in throwing pot shots at BYU, than in talking about TCU." and
what is it exactly you think you're doing. OF course we throw pot shots. TDS and
Ute fans. What do you think a rivalry is about anyway?
@wazzup"the ND fans booed Utah's band and crazy lady when they showed
lack of class." Please be aware of what really happened with
the band. Utah was NOT at fault:"Dear Dr Sproul and the 2010
UTAH Marching Band,On behalf of the Notre Dame Band and Band Staff,
I want to compliment the University of Utah Band and staff on their terrific
performance last Saturday at Notre Dame Stadium. The band performed with
confidence and pride, exhibiting high standards of musicianship and marching
precision. Your show was well received by our students and fans and your
conducting of the National Anthem was perfect!The 3rd quarter timing
was our fault. Our visiting band coordinator forgot about Tim McCarthys PSA
after 1812 Overture and resulted in an over reaction by our fans. I take
complete responsibility for that mistake.I hope otherwise it was an
enjoyable day visiting our campus and your students had a chance to see the fall
colors.We look forward to seeing you at future games and events and wish
you and your band the best for a successful season.Cordially,Ken DyeDirector of BandsUniversity of Notre Dame"
I wonder how many eastcoastcoug's still live with mommy posting comments about
others living with mom to make them feel better about themselves. Then they go
on to insult people about their education and reading comprehension. AZguy is a
byu fan. Thus the "Go Cougs!" at the end of his post.One
last thing, were you there to hear the death threats and see the assault? Do you
know what really happened? Didn't he make the same claims in another game
against one of the AZ schools? Or are you just spewing more rumors? Your behavior on the other hand, is just right in line with the Christ-like
attributes you want everyone else to employ.You stay classy,
As a Utes fan I love Maxines comments!!! Because I think irony is funny!! If you
are going to lump a huge group of people under one label it makes you a
biggot... and what's more "classless" than that.I hate a
lot of Cougars, and even more of their fans, but I reserve it to a select
few.... for the most part I cheer for former Y players at the next level, and at
my family Thanksgiving party there will undoubtedly be some good natured
ribbing. One of my best friends is a season ticket holder, and more irony, can
drink me under he table!!At one point I was considering both schools
for football and due to the funny goatee comment earlier chose the red, only to
get seriously injured before I ever got to play.Ps. Its the
"Holy War" to any purist to this rivalry, it's been that way since
long before we were in Iraq and Afganistan.... which by the way, aren't supposed
to be religious wars.
Who am I sir?The "rivalry" will change!!! Next year this
game will be the 10th most important game on the Ute's schedule!!! LOL! Not for BYU obsessed Utah fans.Their lives would be
meaningless without having BYU to hate on 24/7, 365 days a year.Case
in point: Utah playing the "biggest game in the history of Utah" #3
TCU at #5 Utah, and many Utah fans were still more interested in throwing pot
shots at BYU, than in talking about TCU.It'll be the same next year.
Utah will be visiting USC, and the BYU obsessed BYU hating Utah fans will still
be talking about BYU.It's what they do.
The "rivalry" will change!!! Next year this game will be the 10th
most important game on the Ute's schedule!!! (That's assuming it will be more
important than the Pitt game.)
Actually, Max Hall had it right. Max said that the whole organization
(University of Utah) is classless. Earl Spencer, the brother of Princess Diana,
said in his funeral eulogy for his sister, that Diana was classless, meaning in
proper English that she did not hold any class distinctions among people. Sounds
correct about Princess Diana and the University of Utah. Thanks Max.
I believe in LOVE! Thanks Lee, for defining the loving family fight--it's so
true! We love 51 weeks of the year, but this week, one of us is going to slug
on through to victory and the other is going to be miserable . . . but let's
keep it to a week or so, okay?We were prepared for the Cougars to
lose a month ago. But now we're prepared for anything! I admit it would be
more painful to the Utes to lose than the Cougars. Their loss to Notre Dame was
painful even for me! And if the Utes had lost to SDSU, I think I could not
have stood even to cheer for my beloved Cougars this coming Saturday. That's
proof of the family feeling. But they didn't lose, and so now I say, may the
best most beloved team win!GO COUGARS!!!
Lee, did you forget the words of Alex Smith or Wynn Tate or Max' clarification
as to WHY he said what he said. I guess you excuse the Utah fan's behavior.
Heck, even the ND fans booed Utah's band and crazy lady when they showed lack of
class.Perhaps Max was right.....as the ND fans who don't boo any
It's just a game, people, just a game.
I applaud Max for saying what he said, if you don't hate your rival then you
aren't a true player. I grew up in SC and it is the same with SC and Clemson.
Different conferences but still a heated debate. BYU and utah will continue to
have the same debate even though they will not be in the same league any more.
utah fans need to get over what Max had to say... they say it all the time too.
this will be an interesting game since neither team can stop the pass...
No chance Eric's kids go to the Y. Consider the cycle broken.
BYU can play free and easy because ALL of the pressure is on Utah.A
9-2, Top 25 team playing at home with an experienced QB shouldn't have any
trouble against a 6-5, unranked team playing on the road with a true freshman
starting at QB.If the Utes lose this game, it will be a humiliating
meltdown for a team that was once ranked in the Top 5.Will Utah fans
prove that Max was right about them?
Thank you for this very much needed column. And on a related topic,
can we please ask at least the Des.News not to call it a holy war? Please? It
cheapens religion to do so, but at a time when we're in wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan it seems particularly tasteless.
I'd love to see a survey on how many Utah graduates - especially the men - STILL
live at home with Mom. All that talk by Ute fans about the Y's curfew and honor
code - when the U boys would get a whoopin' from their mamma for using bad
language, staying out late, drinking, or growing a goatee (the biggest sign of
rebellion in Utah).
"Family Fight?" Spare me.
Lee: Read LDS Pres. Uchtdorf's talk and then write an article about the
rivalry...that should change the tone.
... this was back in the day when you could get a D in high school algebra and
still get in.Today, you don't need to pass highschool algebra and
still get in.
Max for President!
Boom.I agree. Heaps will be sad recipient of the Max Hall
payback.Max hall will need to send flowers and a card after the
broken bones and shattered confidence heaps will be forced to accept.Bring your beer poncho...forcast calls for heavy downpours.
Good luck to Utes and Cougars. Utah State fans hate you both!
Will Max do the classy thing and phone Heaps after the game and thank him for
taking his beating?
My guess is Heaps shatter's Hall's turnover record and the Utes win easily!Go Utes!!!
