I love how BYU fans thyrow comments about "Winning is not that important to them" or "Winnng is secondary". If that's true then why allo the hype every June about the team?Why do "LDS athletes"forgo their missions to play football? Why do they break waqy from thre Mtn. to go Indy get a TV deal and make more revenue?This and much more just proves your in denial.

"I love how BYU fans thyrow comments about "Winning is not that important to them"

No true.

What Bronco and BYU fans have said is winning isn't their #1 priority.

Missions, like everything else in life, is a personal decision.

Does it bother you when an LDS athlete from Notre Dame, USC, Arizona State, or Utah doesn't go on a mission, or does it only bother you when it's an LDS athlete from BYU?

If it's only BYU athletes, then you're a hypocrit.

I love how Utah fans were beating their chests about Utah's "superior" television access in the PAC 12, but then go stone cold silent when the schedules for BYU and Utah are announced.

Even under the old contract, Utah fans claimed that Utah would have much better television coverage even with BYU's contract with ESPN.

For all the "support" from ESPN, the kickoff times couldn't be much worse for heat and humidity in the south.

Man I love Ute logic! For months we've heard them jealously say, "Yeah, well who cares that you're on ESPN ... they'll all just be mid-week games that nobody will watch!"

Now that the schedule is released and it is awesome, they reply (Jealously -- they are on Versus afterall) with, "That means more people to watch you lose" and
"This tv thing has gotten out of hand. You Y fans have your priorities all mixed up boy."

It's like an Aesop Fable reading their silly posts!

"I'm surprised. I thought the Texas game would be on ABC or ESPN. Wonder why ESPN2?"


Maybe you would choose Versus?

"Wow one reference?You barely beat OU with their backup.How did you finish the year by the way?I"

1) OU was coming off a trip to the BCS National Championshio game. They were ranked #3 in the country at the time of the game, which happened to be on ESPN at prime time.
2) OU started the game with Sam Bradford at QB, but our man Colby clawson knocked him out.
3) We finished that year ranked #12 and on a 5 game winning streak, including a win over Utah and a win over Oregon State in the Vegas Bowl.

How did Utah finish last year in the Vegas Bowl?

Go Cougars!

How would U know? When was the last time Utah had the guts to venture into the south for a regular season football game?

YOur bragging about scheduling teams in the south that are going to beat you. Good for you!

Win or lose, it's better than living with the embarrassment of having both a national championship and a Heisman Trophy stripped from your program for cheating.

Corona, CA

I don't feel bad for Reggie, just the present day team. It's not the program either that is cheating. How do you control the actions of 80 college athletes when they have free time? You can't!

What you do is recruit players with more character. Of course you look down on that approach. But then the team you choose to be a fan of, congratulations on that by the way, just got stripped of a heisman and a national championship so it is obvious they are doing things the right way. Keep on recruiting those high character guys.

The first 6 games all on ESPN or ESPN2 now that is very cool.

Losers hate Winners!

And cheaters can't win without cheating. Sports are played within a set of rules, both on and off the field. "Winning" while cheating is like having a running back run off the sidelines, thread through his teamates, and then back into the endzone to yell "Touchdown!"

By the way, just about the only time I think about USC is when you come onto these comment boards to insult my team. Even though I grew up on the west coast, USC is an afterthought to me unless you run up screaming in my face. So, as you say, "losers hate winners" so who is the winner here and who is the loser?

Winners > Losers > Cheaters

And yes, I would rather have BYU lose with honor then win the way the only professional football team in California wins.
