One more Heisman then retire? Great to hear Norm offer such a long-term commitment to utah...

Well said Hawk.

Jordan's name and the honorable name of Heisman in the same sentence is laughable. I'm lookiing forward to this 'broken wing' offense.

Oh we all knew it was a joke, even if Norm didn't mean it to be a joke the meer thought of it is a joke. I'd be more concerned with the psycological state of ute "fans" like yourself after next seasons 1-4 start and spiral into bottom of the pac obscurity than any "conditioned to believe" BYU fans. We all know the utah "fan" base is tenuous, at best, and as evidenced by the attendence at the huntsman center the last few years it doesn't take much, or long, for them to bail in droves. You can almost make a direct head for head comparison between the drop in attendence at the huntsman center and the increase in attendence at the Marriott Center.

Of course since LES is always full anyway we won't be able to accomodate all of the ute "fans" that try to come running back down to LES. But fortunately for all of them every single BYU game will be broadcast nationwide in HD on ESPN or BYUtv so they can join wedgie, christina and yourself watching them each week.

got to love the world looking through your coog blue glasses. I can't believe your still making "the attendence" argument. That is and always has been every coog fans fall back. I hope it still makes you feel better.

Keep on thinking that your coogs wouldn't have loved to be invited to the PAC10.

How quickly you have forgotten the past. It's not a secret that winning brings in the fans. It wasn't that long ago that byu won 1 game in a full season - do you think the Marriott center was packed back then? or what about the last couple years of Gary Crowton?? the stadium was more than half empty. It happens to every team college or professional - notice the Jazz games lately??

It would be a step in the right direction if you knew anything about what you were talking about before you post.

I realize there haven't been any articles on byu football for you to write on but to post something on every possible Utah article wreaks of jealousy.

Go Utes!

Thanks for your concern about my well being, but it's not neccessary. I've had season tickets since 80 through the good times and the bad. I'll continue to support my team and avoid trolling the BYU forums and posting baiting comments intended only to inflame the other teams fans.

Feel free to do the same.

I will say it again SammyG and the Duck know nothing about football!!!!!

Oh al since when did simply being a fan of a team make anyone an expert on football? Obviously that is all you are and like all ute "fans" a tenuous one. And qwest your screen name says all we need to know about your obsession with BYU. And finally to the bleeder. No one has had season tickets to the utes for that long. You may have been attending games since then but simply picking up a free one because they needed to fill seats for the 1st 24 of those years is not the same thing as being a season ticket holder. LOL

Just thought I would point out that the lowest attendence in Crowtons years was 53,435 which was 82% of capacity not "more than half empty".

As you said, "It would be a step in the right direction if you knew anything about what you were talking about before you post."
