West Virginia is a big upgrade from Mizzou.
fan in orem,We're two games back from a Pac 12 title game and rose
bowl shot. Unlikely I know, but please tell.....You are two games
back from?The same bowl game you're already going to.LOL!
You know, when I see a post by ChrisB, I just pass it by without reading it. I
hate to see the negativity by him and other's and I don't need to subject myself
Chris: How is that access to the Rose Bowl working out for you so far?
Chris B: Comparing the Utes record to the BYU record is hard to do. I think it
is fair to say both teams have represented our state pretty well around the
country. Both teams, on any given day, are capable of defeating each other...and
have. Based purely on "total athletic records alone", eliminating
religion, honor codes, and no play on Sunday, and because of the BYU national
fan base, BYU would have been a better choice for the PAC 12 than Utah and that
is a fact. So rather then beat up BYU for standing for something bigger then
nickle dime sports, why not salute them for their integrity. After all, if it
weren't for that, the Utes would still be in the Mountain West Conference.
Chris B: I don't recall ever stating that I thought BYU was going to be
invited. Since you are all about BYU, you read that into it.
Still Blue,I wondered the same thing. I don't remember where but I
read that Mizzou will stay in the big 12 as long as they are needed as the 10th
member. Obviously there will be some shuffling of money to appease all parties
and I dont know exactly how that all works legally - but the point remains: byu does not stand a chanceThe big 12 would break their
contract and be sued by FOX and the other affiliates before inviting byu to
their conference. And if I'm byu, inside I'm thankful no one wants
me.BYU and bronco have shown they simply can't compete against top
I've not been able to find anyone that can answer the question of what the Big
XII will do if WVU cannot join until 2014 and Mizzou leaves in 2012. They
would only have 9 teams, a violation of their tv contracts. The Big XII might
be able to hold Mizzou until 2013, but if the Big East prevails and holds WVU
until 2014, there is still one year with a problem. Perhaps a monster check
to the Big East will solve the problem but then they'd have a precedent problem
with Pitt and Syracuse. We'll see what happens.
How old are you Chris B? Don't you have better things to do than making your
silly stuff or making a fool of yourself. Oh, is your boss looking over you
daily making sure you doing your work other than making your comments? Good for
utah for winning against Arizona.I am fine where BYU is at and no
need to join this little east leauge.
sammyWhat is your program's best either in the 2011 or 2010
season?LOL. I can't wait for your response.I wonder
what future recruits will think after this season when they see that the
programs best win, in TWO YEARS, is Utep?LOL.There is a
reason kids even in cougar country such as Chase Hansen are choosing Utah. I'll
be shocked if Troy Hinds doesn't see the light while on the mission. Team that has proven it can go undefeatedTeam proven it can go to BCS
gamesTeam proven it can win BCS gamesTeam with true athletesTeam with Rose Bowl shot every yearvs.Team proven it
can't go undefeatedTeam proven it can't go to a BCS gameTeam that
will never win BCS game.Team guaranteed one of the worst bowls Tough ChoiceI wonder how many more years it will be until byu gets
a significant win of any kind? It's already been 2 years since a
decent win. Probably will be a couple more years.
I feel sorry for people who go through life filled with so much hate.
Chris BWho needs a stinkin' conference anyway? Obviously the
security blanket and pacifier aspects of a conference fits the Utes and its
fanbase well.Conference affiliation is kind of like Obama's
'distribution of the wealth' philosophy. Those that are not able to sustain for
themselves have to hang on to the coat tails of others for survival.BYU doesn't need it and is fine without it. No other school, besides Army,
Navy, Notre Dame and BYU can do this or has the guts to do it.Have
HD truck, legacy and fanbase will travel. No sour grapes here!
I love the bcs for who is included and for who is not
