Hilarious article. Ute fans are a bit defensive and with reason.
That's ok Marked it Down. Kyle Veazey, the AP voter from Mississippi, who gave
one vote to BYU ranking them 25th, ranked Utah 20th, so I can live with it.
Ute (or Cougar fan) or not... I LOL'ed!!! Love the Mariane Faithful reference.
Here's hoping that Langi has never heard of the Grateful Dead! Har.
Rock is just a hater.Makes for good reading though.Good
No one can blame you for telling it like it is rock.....I mean who can argue
with the truth!
The Sports Writers got it right. Utah is no longer over-rated, because the Utes
are no longer ranked.Unranked in the final AP poll.
Very funny article Mr. Rock. As always you make for a good read!!!
Spin it however you want, butothers receiving votes = UNRANKED!Remember how many times we heard from Utah fans last year about awful
Oklahoma was because they didn't finish the season ranked?Utah
didn't deserve to be ranked in the Coaches poll, but Kyle probably voted the
Utes #2 just so they'd have enough votes to squeak into the poll.
Marked it down: Utah was the first team listed in the "others receiving
votes" category, which translates to being #26. BYU's vote is irony only
in that they received a vote. They should not have received any votes with a
In every Utah fan's favorite poll, the AP poll, the Utes finished:UNRANKED!Ironically, BYU got a vote in the AP poll!
X-PatYou missed the boat. Hall wasn't drafted and Beck wasn't a first
rounder either. He was referring to the "can't miss" picks. Nice try
What?!?!No mention of Rick Majerus?
Rock only brings up utah recruiting because, well, their the only school that
seems to be doing it.Have you seen the BYU recruiting class this
year? ouch. This class wouldn't qualify to cut the grass at Texas or even
BSU.Hey rock, how about an article about how BYU going
"indy" has help recruiting..crickets crickets crickets
I'm definitely not a Ute fan, but I'm perplexed as to why there has to be a dig
at some Ute somewhere in your Rock On columns. Is it popular with the home
crowd? Maybe, but it feels a little cheap, sort of like a comedian who gets all
his laughs telling raunchy or scatalogical jokes. It also helps me to
understand, along with personal experience, why some people don't like BYU fans.
They are just like every other fan of every other university. Not all, mind
you, or even most, but you can say that about any school. The thing about BYU
is that some of their fans claim to have a higher standard, but they be just as
petty and mean as anybody else. People can 'hate' me for saying that, but as a
fan of neither school, that's what I see.
Uh oh Rock. You mentioned a ute in a humorous way. Prepare for the ute
"fans" and trolls to whine, whine, whine. LOLp.s. Alex
Smith is terrible.
Nice column. One beef, though. I think you were a little unfair to Matt
Stafford, and a lot unfair to Mark Sanchez to group them with the other bust
QBs. At last check, Sanchez and his teammates just showed Peyton Manning et al
the door in the first round of the playoffs. And while Stafford has admittedly
been plagued with injuries and hasn't played a lot, he's done pretty well when
he played, and I think a lot of people in Detroit are hopeful he will be great.
Neither of them belong on that list. At least not yet.
