Honor Code and the rest of the Pac12 fans. I say that, because you all put up
Pac12 decals in your window. By the way, my favorite MLB team is the American
League. LOLThe Utes will be OK once they get to the weak part of
their schedule, their conference. The PAC 12 is weak. 2-10 against
the MWC and 1 of those wins was an OT win.5-5 against the WCC and their
church gyms5-4 against the WAC. Congrats you have 1 more win than the WAC.
That was more like a rugby game when Utah was on defense, BYU needs to drop them
from their schedule if they insist on pac 12 refs on their home floor.
Skywalker, you only think they do. It give you solace to feel assume Utah fans
carry losses with them for time and all eternity. We don't. We just look
forward to beating the Y again. Doesn't matter when.
@TRUTHDon't feel bad. BYU thumped on another Pac12 team last week.
Oregon is better than Utah. However, I do agree that Chris Hill has been there
Thumped by the WCC and laughing stock of the Nation...time for Chris Hill to
pack his bags........
@ Honor Code...And then you get BYU who loves to thump on WAC and WCC
teams...Seems they also like to thump on PAC12 teams.
Six in a row and ten of eleven. Linger on that.
@imacaman and gogetterIf utah is starting a bunch of jc guys during
a seson like this one that means there are no freshman worth playing. The
assertion that utah is young and has freshman playing and getting experience is
false. utah is playing all jr's and sr's and then has absolutely nothing in the
pipeline to develop. Tye litterally have nothing. That means they may even be
worse next year than they are this year if that is even possible. That means
that those jc guys ctinking it up this year will be seniors stinking it up next
year with the underclassmen still not getting any experience, and why should
they as they don't have any worth giving experience to.What this
means is that utah is going to be very, very bad for a very, very long time.
Frankly there is no relief in sight. There are no current players on the roster
coming up or getting experience. Tehre are a few recruits but we aren't talking
studs here, just good recruits. If utah started all of those freshman next
season they would be terrible again anyway with no guaranty they would ever
overcome the trauma.
Dennis only wishes BYU still lingers over a set back. Utah has only begun to
suffer. UCLA is changing the requirements for their athletes so "that more
can attend." That means lowering their standards to Utah's level and taking
some of the players that couldn't get into UCLA, Cal ,etc. or BYU for that
I don't think there was anything awful about the game at all. I was on the
first row at the game and watched both teams fight it out with a lot of heart.
The shooting was bad because the defense was so aggressive on both sides. An
awful game is one in which players are being a little lazy or playing without
heart. This was a passionate defensive game. As a lifelong cougar, I have to
hand it to the Utes for continuing to play hard the whole game even after having
so little success this season.
ImaCaMan"Ummmm, most of those "juniors" are JC
transfers."JC transfers are brought in to be instant
contributors because they already have a couple of years of college playing
experience.Trying to equate JC transfers with freshmen is just plain
get over them [losses to BYU] quickly and look to the next time out."Don't kid yourself. Utah fans still anguish over "4th and 18",
"Harline is still open", and "Hall to George".
BYU fans would love to have the rivalry "finished" as BYUalum
mentioned. But I'm sorry, there is way too much satisfaction from the Utah
perspective is watching or participating in any BYU debacle in any sport. BYU
fans have always harbored the losses and anguished over them. Utah fans get
over them quickly and look to the next time out. Utah is awful this year in
fact the basketball program for the past 10 years. But, one day, the sun will
rise, a new coach will be hired, and the Cougars will once again wonder what
happened. It's very easy to look forward to that horizon line knowing in fact
that it's coming.
Once upon a time Utah use to have a great Basketball program!! And then you get
BYU who loves to thump on WAC and WCC teams and then tell everyone they're BCS
qualified or deserve an invite at the NCAA Bracket! Hilarious!!
ImaCaManJC Transfers still have more experience than Freshmen or
Sophomores. And why put it it parentheses? A "Junior" is still a
This rivalry is over...done...finished. Hammering it over a BYU win or a Utah
win in whatever sport means nothing anymore. No words written or spoken make any
difference! Let it go!
This is hard to understand. I can't see how BYU could beat a PAC team. PAC
teams are much stronger and have better talent. I guess miracles do happen.
@GoGetter'Give them a break, it will take a couple years for the new
coach to get the program going again.'Same song, same dance with
your last two fired basketball coaches. It's becoming a pattern.
Great job Cougars! You gotta credit the Utes though for managing to make BOTH
teams on the floor look bad. BYU shouldn't have played down to their level
though. Time for the Muss to hold up their double loser signs!
HawkeyeUmmmm, most of those "juniors" are JC transfers.
@GoGetter,Ummm...Utah started 4 Juniors and a Senior. Is that what
you meant by "full of new freshmen?"
@KH 54-10 was three months ago. 61-42 is the new beatdown score you should get
used to using.
When I told my daughter that BYU beat the utes, she (being a ute fan thanks to
her mom) said "Dad, Utah is only good in football." I guess the
tables have turned. Interesting
Portland Trail Blazers,Look it up, the Utah team is full of new
freshman and a new coach. Give them a break, it will take a couple years for the
new coach to get the program going again.Don't be so quick in
judgment and to be ill speaking, what do they even teach at BYU?
LOL!The team in Provo couldn't even cover the spread against Utah.
If I'm a fan of the team in Blue, I'm deeply concerned about my team because
it's clear BYU is not even as good as Cal State Fullterton.Good luck
in the WCC!
Rose is wrong. It's not a great rivalry anymore. When one team slows it down and
plays keep away in order to stay in the game it is not even competitive. That's
why all the headlines say it was ugly.I don't know how it can become
a great rivalry again, but I'm glad it's only once a year for the time being.
Utah is awful.
I see one byu fan is still showing his/her jealousy by using the term Pac 10.2.
Please just accept it. It is the PAC 12 and you weren't invited. You talk about embarrassing? How embarrassing was that 54-10 beatdown a team
from the PAC 12 put on your football team?
Utah is an embarrassment to the entire state of Utah and the Pac 10.2They should have the "UTAH" name removed from their jersey'sBYU will be 2-0 against the Pac 10.2 this seasin and Utah will go 0-2
against the WCC, ironic, right?
