    Did you see that??!! I thought the U was going to the championship game? Maybe try not overlooking a team. 4-5 is ok, but you were one yard against Wash St. from being 3-6. Not too impressive.

    @ kitsutsuki

    You almost got it right. Utah beat Montana State, not Colorado. Just read what Uteology said a few posts above to see the "spin" on a great Utah year at 8 - 4 in a weak-sister conference that they had to go overtime to beat the 2nd from the bottom and actually lost at home to the bottom team.

    I think Utah will likely lose their bowl game. And imagine, at 7 - 5 their delusional fans thought they were going to the Rose Bowl. Hilarious!!

    rumble with the rockettes. looking tough utes. just a tune up for the rose bowl. 24 consecutive road loses and now, the utes rolled over to let the buff get a win. NICE! 4-5 not bad! i think the hairdos for the utes and the tats are what makes them so powerful.

    We don't need Utah as a rivalry anymore, the Y will develop a better rivalry with Notre Dame. We will have world wide exposure on ESPN. and count it,next year another Nation Championship! Jake Heaps will start next year and finish with a Heisman.

    Good Luck in the Bottom of the PAC

    The Y is moving on!

    A Trojan fan doesn't know the record of their hated rival whom they play tomorrow? As of today, UCLA is 6-5.

    What happened to that ASU fan that made a few posts a while back?

    Turnaround??? Are you kidding me???

    Tell me, who has Utah beaten? UCLA - at home was, well, expected but congratulations. Other than that they have beaten Oregon State, Arizona, Washington State and probably Colorado.

    Sorry guys but the PAC12 is weak, the southern division is weaker, and Utah is even weaker still.

  • Uteology East Salt Lake City, Utah

    @TroyTown

    True, but this is also true...

    1) Utah had one year recruiting under the PAC-12 banner other schools have been recruiting for decades.
    2) Utah also doesn't have the same athletic budget as other PAC-12 schools since they won't get paid PAC-12 money for a few more years

    Be patient my Cougar friend. In our first year, with MWC recruits going 5-4 in the first year, with a top 3 PAC-12 defense, and finishing 8-4 is a great start.

    1). Hows your rivalry week game going today?

    2). Does the Why have any opportunities if anything happen's in regard to; if a team loses or a team wins today?

    Hear that? Tic Toc, Tic Toc, Tic Toc. (Silence)

    "The fact that Utah fans are completely obsessed with talking smack with BYU fan during Utah's so-called "rivalry" week is proof positive that Utah fans couldn't care less about their new "rival".

    ==========

    Who said we cared about our new "rival"? Most Utah fans think it's funny the media is trying to force this rivalry on us... Are you so insecure that you are worried that Utah might not consider BYU rivals anymore? Well just to make you feel better, Utah will probably consider the Y rivals until the 2nd 40 point beat down Utah gives you next season. So don't worry buddy, the Y is still relevant to Utah for a little bit longer.

    Whoop-D-Doo. This just in- It's not a rivalry.

    Ute fans are excited because this football season has gone from being exciting to frustrating and discouraging to very exciting again. We have seen phenomenal coaching and hard nosed gritty players.

    We are loving our conference, our season, and, most of all, our players.

    You can stick with your espn driven late night games against junior colleges. You can cheer when your QB high-fives the refs.

    We'll stick with great football! Go Utes!

    "TroyTown, you are too funny. No self respecting USC fan would be obsessing about the Utes as much as you do as evidenced by your constant troll like statements on articles that are all things Utes. It is obvious you are a Y troll..."

    pebbles

    Nice dodge, but you didn't address any of Troy Town's salient points.

    *U lost to the best team in the south
    *U got byes against the best two teams in the conference
    *U played 5 of your 9 conference games at home
    *If U win the south, you won't have beaten a single conference team with a winning record

    Yet, with all of that going for U, U still have to hope your only two competitors will implode just to get a chance to get destroyed by Oregon.

    The fact that Utah fans are completely obsessed with talking smack with BYU fan during Utah's so-called "rivalry" week is proof positive that Utah fans couldn't care less about their new "rival".

    "How did Utah hi-jack that moniker?"
    ---VegasBart

    Utah? Myopia affects hundreds of folks on these threads my friend.

    The Denver Post reported: "Working together, the schools' marketing departments have developed "Rumble in the Rockies" as the official name of the renewed Colorado vs. Utah series for all sports, beginning with Friday's football game in Salt Lake City. "Rumble in the Rockies" was announced this week. The schools say the slogan was chosen after weighing fan input."

    ====
    "Talk about much ado about nothing:
    --Utah doesn't play the two best teams in the conference
    --The best team in the south is ineligible
    --Not a single conference win came against a team with a winning record"
    ---TroyTown

    Facts. They can be so tough to handle when you are blinded by hatred.

    Currently UCLA, whom the Utes beat soundly, have a winning record. If the Bruins beat USC, they will win the south outright as they would hold a tie-breaker over the probabation stricken Trojans.

    And it is debatable that Oregon is better than said Trojans, whom the U played on the road and lost by missing the game tieing field goal.

    If you are indeed a Trojan fan, then sorry.

    Poll question of the day:

    Which "rivalry week" game will end up being closer?

    Utah vs. Colorado

    or

    BYU vs. BYE

    My vote is BYU vs BYE

  • Rock Of The Marne Phoenix, AZ

    TroyTown, you are too funny. No self respecting USC fan would be obsessing about the Utes as much as you do as evidenced by your constant troll like statements on articles that are all things Utes. It is obvious you are a Y troll pretending to represent the USC view which is funny in a sad for you way. Too me it is pathetic that any Y fans think they have a right to put in digs against Utah when they their team looked Div II against when the played the Utes; at home no less; obviously Utah is way better than the mid major team in Provo which brings of the desperate jealousy of the kittens.

  • TroyTown Anaheim, CA
    Nov. 25, 2011 9:14 a.m.

    Talk about much ado about nothing:

    --Utah doesn't play the two best teams in the conference
    --The best team in the south is ineligible
    --Not a single conference win came against a team with a winning record
    --The Utes play five conference home games

    and even with all of that going for them

    --The Utes still have to rely on other teams imploding to win the south

    This is like beating CSU, Wyoming, New Mexico, UNLV, and SDSU for a chance to get smoked by Boise State or TCU in the conference championship game.

    Good luck against CSU, er, CU -- Rumble in the Rubble indeed.

    Call it what you want. The Buffs may be lousy this year, and our year has taken an unlikely path. But here we sit at 4-4 in league play, and yet our season and this game are still exciting. Juan Blanco has a chance to break the single season rushing record and we still have a good chance to get to the Holiday bowl! The PAC 12 is so much better than the Mountain West Conference!

    Go Utes!

    Uteology--that would be "grammar" errors.
    And yes, DC--it does feel like it's being forced and a little bit like giving yourself a nickname in high school, but you're wrong to say those things don't stick. I nick named myself Sir Studley as a pimply tenth grader and the name has stuck like glue for years.
    Still--"Rumble in the Rockies?" Really? It sounds like something you'd advertise with some guy with a deep gravely voice, speaking really slowly.

    Perhaps there will be a completely new atmosphere in Utah during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season. The hatred between Utah and BYU fans may, in time, subside. Utahns can root for both teams with a spirit of pride in both. I hope, for the sake of my grandchildren who will grow up there, that the late season game will never be played again. Let BYU, Utah and Utah State play each other in September.

    3) USC 31 UCLA 14

    The best thing after going 8-4 in the regular season is a chance to get 9th win with the conference championship game.
