You, like all other utah "fans", will completely disappear from any and all utah athletic events after the next couple of years with utah's impending pac10 mediocrity.

utah's greatest weakness, and they have many, is their tenous and frankly non existent "fan"base. There are so few real fans that they simply cannot sustain themselves with anything less than 10 win regular seasons.

You will all disappear from sight just as you have done at the huntsman center.

chris hill stated it on the radio a couple of weeks ago as their greatest fear because he knows the truth of it.

So do the rest of us. You just live in denial of it.

Utah 2004 and 2008 were the pinnacle of Utah football and even those teams weren't good enough to finish higher than 6th in BCS standings.

Enjoy PAC 12 middle of the PAC mediocrity.

What a frantic and emotional thing to say. You've never met me, yet you think you know whether or not I'd abandon my alma mater. Make no mistake Ducky...it is YOUR fanbase that needs to be told what to do, hwhat to think, how to feel. If you're worried about disappearing fanbases, concern yourselves with your OWN fans, since THEY will be the ones left watching uninteresting WAC and C-USA laden matchups at LES while the Utes will be annually hosting some of the biggest names in college football. And while Holmoe is standing outside the big double doors at Big XII headquarters, hat in hand, begging for an invitation, there'll nobody there to answer the door, since last I heard, Texas and Oklahoma are too busy standing outside Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott's door, hat in hand, hoping WE'LL give THEM an invitation.

I think it's hilarious that you guys want to join a league they're trying to escape, in order to hitch your wagons to them. Haha!

It's going to make the Rose Bowl a long long shot. But, it's good to be in the conference no matter what happens.

PAC-16 East? (how can the Pacific Athletic Conference have an East division - that's an oximoron, like we just included Japan or something)

Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and Arizona State.
