Hey rccky, utah has never won an basketball national championship LOL When they won the ncaa tournament back in the 1940's lol it was the minor
league tournament, the second chance tournament for the teams not good enough to
win in the NIT. BYU on the otherhand won the NIT tournament when it was the main
tournament in the country. So any claim of a college basketball National
Championship from this state would actually belong to BYU although in those days
no one called it that.Nice try though LOLLove seeing you
get your utah panties in a bunch LOLWatched you team this year?
Duckhunter speaking of winning NC Utah has won a NCAA Basketball NC and BYU has
not nor will ever so if a NCAA NC is the end all be all then in B-Ball Utah has
it and BYU dosen't. Speakng of resume', why is BYU's woefully lnadquate in the
B-ball post season as well as in football bowls? Has your team ever really even
been to a top tier bowl before (Cotton Bowl dosen't cut it)? BYU's record in
the post season is an ugly baby (especially 1984) if brought into the light,
which I am glad to do. 2004 and 2008 Utah would have beat 84 BYU easily (heck
you barely beat a mediocre 6-6 Michigan amongst other Bo Diddle Techs). BYU
1984 most of the country would agree was the most undeserved Football NC ever
and ushered in the BCS so it wouldn't ever happen again. Bottom line your best
teams accomplished far less on the field than Utah's best teams based upon who
they beat and how they did it (2004 Utah beat badly everyone they played and
2008 utah beat many final AP ranked teams).
Spin it however you want to rocky, but, bottom line is NOTHING beats finishing
Ah yes rock of the marne, back to the resume, albeit it a very short one. LOLNothing short of winning the national championship is as good as winning
the national championship. You see winning the national championship is as good
as a team can possibly do. Oh it was a sweet taste as well. Much
better than simply winning a bowl game and ebing the runner up. You wouldn't
know though, you've never experienced it and never will.LOL
So right Duckhunter 2 undefeated seasons in the last 6 years does mean much more
than one 26 years ago. Plus 2008 Utah beat 4 final AP top 25 teams (2 in the
top 10) vs. no final top 25 teams for 1984 BYU. I think most sane people would
view Utah's accomplishments (including spanking Alabama vs. barely beating a 6-6
team as much more impressive though I will give you that BYU was very lucky to
get the supposed NC.
Hey good point rock of the marne LOL the National Championship doesn't really
count for anything LOL Of course utah will never win one so you have to try and
down play it to be meaningless. Meanwhile simply playing in a bowl game like the
fiesta bowl or sugar bowl means much more than an actual National
Championship.uta fans, amusing the rest of us for 26 years LOL
Do something, as in getting humiliated on national television three times in the
same season?The problem with our little brothers on the hill is
their best has literally never been better than 2nd best -- except of course for
women's gymnastics.Go Red Rocks!Write back when U have
one of those Crystal Football National Championship trophies in your trophy
case. After almost 120 years of football, the closest the Utes have come to a
Crystal Football trophy is the one sitting in a trophy case about 45 miles south
of the U.Come see it see time. It might be your only chance to see
one in person.
Duckhunter you're too funny and a classic example of a BYU little brother. You
are the definition (you and your team) of a little brother. Write back when
your teams actually do something in the post season worth noting (1984 and 1981
don't really cut it in big boy world).
tdlawton"If the slow but steady fact of Utah Athletics passing
BYU Athletics..." blah, blah, blahPassing BYU athletics?BYU(12-1) #16/#16, RPI #5Utah(7-6) unranked, RPI #176So much for slowly passing BYU.Keep dreaming. That
"magical" 1-25 season may come as early as next year for the Utes.
Some skin appears to be wearing a little thin.
Basketball, Utah has the same record in Basketball as BYU finished with, they
are both at 7-6. You can talk all you want about 1-25 that was a horable season.
Now which team do fans think will have the better season next year in both
football and basketball. Be honest :) It is easy to forget the past when the
future looks so bright.
Johnny Ace; we may have been embarrased in 3 games but, stil won the other 10,
including a 17-16 game with a beautiful ending. so, laugh it up, funny boy.
why slam the U here?
The fact ute fans feel the need to recite their resume in an attempt to respond
to a humor column is absolutely hilarious LOLPoor picked on little
brothers LOL That inferiority complex hangs over your heads like a 50 ton
Rock is just doing the biweekly cheap shot column and I am sure he knows it. If
Ute fans (and I am one) think they are taking more than there share then they
can always look at the numbers.10-3 in Football and we are supposed
to be embarrassed? Seems like 7-6 is worse.While Utah Basketball IS
a disaster zone by our own standards it is hardly a 1-25 disaster that BYU fans
seem to have blotted out of their memory.Utah IS going to the
Pac-12, BYU IS going to the WCC and somehow Utah fans are supposed to be scared
of the future?If the slow but steady fact of Utah Athletics passing
BYU Athletics makes Utah a more popular target for the biweekly cheap-shot
column I guess I for one will take that with the territory.
ute fans have congenital absence of a sense of humor. Too bad, they needed it to
finish football and get through basketball.
Don't you think about now Riley Nelson wishes he would have stayed at USU? I
know alot of us USU fans wish he would of. Of course hind sight is always 20-20.
"How dare Rock poke fun at our awful basketball team, fragile quarterback
and football team that just got embarrassed? How uncivil!"Utes,
let me share a lesson BYU fans learned during the Crowton years and Roger Reid
years... Don't take everything so seriously. If you don't take a step back and
laugh once in a while, it's going to cause some serious problems. You really
need to learn this lesson as soon as possible, PAC 10 mediocrity is just around
Each time I read "Rock" if have found most if his comments are more
anti-ute than anything else. Comments from BYU fans posting have requested, even
demanded civil dialog between the schools. Rock seems to have forgotten. I do
not recall such comments when BYU was loosing midway through the season. Rock
is a true blue BYU homer! I will not worry however, since reading Rock articles
are now a thing of the past for me!
Cheap shots?Little sensitive all of a sudden, Mr. Howard?I think the forgotten game line was "funny... because it's
Cheap shots at the Utes, Rick Majerus, and Jordan Wynn.Is this what
the DN means when they talk about promoting a civil dialogue?
It was quite obvious in the LV Bowl that when the receivers do get the ball in a
catchable spot, they can't catch it anyway, so what is the worry.
Its time to move on. Wynn is not D1 material. To small and weak. For crying out
loud he weighted 155 lbs in high school. To much weight for his frame. The
coaching staff at Utah has done the entire team a disservice with the QB's they
have recruited. For the most part of the season the receivers have been praying
for a pass that was even close to catch let alone in the dirt or way over their
heads. Take it to the bank....the players do not want girly boy Wynn back at
QBHow about someone who can run when the play breaks down and can take a
hit without the whole coaching staff holding their breath. Enough of the puny
QB's .....bring on a man with guts and grit. Not "help me I've fallen down
and can't get up".
Rock...you summed it up nicely. THE FORGOTTEN says it all...(LOL)...Scoobie
