Kind of like that 1-4 start for BYU last year? See I talk smack about what actually happened. (Facts) You talk smack about what you think will happen. And what you think will happen rarely happens.

I 'troll' because I'm always 'bitter and jealous'. Now that I've said that I feel so much better.

KH... "P.S. Nobody in the nation thinks that BYU's move to independence trumps Utah's move to the PAC 12 besides BYU fans."

I can't resist. I feel like a bug drawn to a bugzapper light... "It's so beautiful..."

Uh, what a silly statement... Isn't it about the fans, the people that pay or watch TV and support the schools, sponsors, etc.? By simple virtue of LDS members in the U.S. (aka fans), I believe those numbers trump your Ute fan numbers.

Unless I missed something I don't recall seats being removed from the MC and LES. BYU fills them up on a pretty regular basis, winning or losing seasons.

It's about viewership, money, and exposure. We will see how both programs fair after this next season.

Ducky and Mussy... I'm sending Kleenex to both of you. One of you is laughing to tears (like me), the other is seriously depressed and lacks some writer creativity.

You have to remember, though, that not all LDS members or BYU graduates are BYU fans. I would be one who falls into that category.

Pocy... works both way, so it didn't change the numbers at all.

Being an independent with a national fanbase will probably always be greater than the state's local fanbase suppporting the U. However, now that both are going different directions it would be reasonable to say the Utes might pick up a few BYU supporters as the rivalry dies down.
