Nice article Mr. Rock. Actually I have to compliment you for writing an article
that shows some professional journalism instead of team/player bashing.
Good stuff here. I do disagree with the first poster about Rock. I don't think
he is overly critical and on a national scale, probably not critical enough for
a columnist. I think some fans that are readers are too sensitive.
In before the ute "fans" start whining that this is simply a ute
"bash" because Rock brought up a couple of negative things that
happened in ute games.
I am Rock's biggest critic, but this was pretty good. I didn't see anything
negative at all. The Utes have their Barton block an OT win over BYU and their
Sugar Bowl BCS win over Alabama. BYU has their Beck to Harline, Hall to Collie
and McMahon to Brown. Majerus did look ridiculous in that Hawaiin shirt
and Roger Reid always sounded like the Grinch that stole Christmas and/or the
father that promoted his sons. I will always remember Barton's
block, the kid made a nice play and deserves huge kudos for selling out. But
when Martinez started pushing BYU's kicker Mitch Payne, then had to be retrained
by a coach, then pushed him again, and again, and again had to be restrained by
his coach, that is something I would like to forget---Martinez seems like a
pretty good kid.I will always remember the media's reaction,
overreaction and incessant articles about Collie's comment as well as the
therapeutic-like articles from the media about Max Hall. It just proves that in
Provo, unless you are politically correct and NEVER be critical of the Utes, you
will be verbally hazed by media
"I don't know if you're a basketball fan...."Very nice.
Stockton was probably happy the guy didn't recognize him.
It's Burton, not Barton
The DN really needs to get Rock some help with his obsessive, compulsive focus
on Rick Majerus.The guy has been gone for seven years. Time to give it a rest... time to get some new material Rock.
The DN really needs to get howard s some help with his obsessive, compulsive
focus on BYU.The utes have moved on to the bottom of the pac10.Time to give it a rest...time to get some new maerial howard.
Rick Majerus is a a timeless Icon. You could write volumes about him and never
quite cover his character. I'm going to have to take Rock's side on this one.Even though he leans Utah, I think Rock is one of the better writers at
