Wow, I'm glad I can see my team in El Paso play a team full of somebodies and not a team full of nobodies in Dallas.

Luv 2 Troll U,

Yes but the GT team and fans are all saying "wish we could be playing a team that is relevant like either of the teams in Dallas. Instead all we get is a team that couldn't beat colorado at home when a shot at the rose bowl was on the line."

Sorry, my internal conflict got the better of me again. Good luck to the Utah football team!

And to the under-the-bridge gang, may your tvs all malfunction and only show replays of BYU's 1984 NC game in the holiday bowl.

Y Grad / Y Dad,

That's funny because I heard some Georgia Tech fans say that Utah is very relevant and a tough team to beat because they beat their rivals BYU 54-10.

Y Daddy, Geo Tech fans want revenge on the last GT vs Utah game, were Utah beat them 38-10 in the Emerald Bowl.

Not quite the beat down the Cougies received last Sept. 54 -10, but against an ACC opponent the Utes will take it!

Relevance? Action does speak louder that words.

BYU has a perfect fit for a bowl game, another team that thinks they are somebody, beats the creampuffs of their conference and loses to all decent teams. Oh wait, they aren't all that similar, Tulsa is in a conference and has something to play for.

@ Luv 2 Troll U

Sorry, but I don't believe you at all or your GT fans are utterly ignorant. Utah is ranked #49 in the BCS poll and BYU is ranked #32. According to the BCS, BYU is significantly more relevant than the Utes.

Your ignorance is also showing. GT is currently ranked #33 in the BCS rankings which is one lower than BYU. Tulsa is ranked #40.

A bowl (Armed Forces)featuring teams ranked #32 and #40 is better than a bowl (Sun) featuring teams ranked #33 and #49.

Spin all you want my friend, but you'll only make yourself dizzy.

Luv 2 Troll U,

Did you really say "I'm glad" and "El Paso" in the same sentence? Okay. Enjoy! While you're down there take in a lovely day in Jaurez too.

I personally have no problem with the U nor their football program but as an avid Y fan, I have no desire nor the time to waste reading about them so I can then waste more time commenting on their articles. I guess to each their own?

However, having said that, I think just for having to go and stay in El Paso, their program deserves every penny they get from this bowl game. I think they are a lot better team, certainly better coached, than the Colorado debacle, just as I believe BYU is a much better team than 54-10. Good luck against GTech!

" I personally have no problem with the U nor their football program but as an avid Y fan, I have no desire nor the time to waste reading about them so I can then waste more time commenting on their articles. I guess to each their own?"

So, why did you take all this time to post such a ridiculous comment?

You and MacNasty, can spin all you want, the fact is, Utah will pull in $2.M over in their bowl over byu's $650K

Cougar fans, from this point forward it is clear that there just isnt really any ute fans. Just haters on the hill. So from now on I suggest we just call them what they are HOH's.

My point being, a game against their new "rival" and a chance to play in the championship game and they are short 5,000 fans of a sell out? wow, the HOH's really showed up in support didnt they?

But, then again everyone loves a good HOH....

Heard from a GT Troll - Wow, I wish I could see my team in Dallas playing a team full of somebodies instead of a team full of nobodies in El Paso.

re: ute troll - one game does not a season make. I know of nobody, other than a few die hard ute fans, who would think the Utes could beat BYU at this point in the season. The two teams have gone in opposite directions since September 17. BYU is markedly better, Utah has fallen apart.

BYU's win over Tulsa will put us in the Top 25.

Utah's loss to GT will be similar to their spanking by a non-AQ team last year and result in another non-memorable season.

Everyone knows the PAC12 this year consists of Oregon, Stanford, USC and 9 other teams. But nobody really thinks any of the 9 other teams are any more than middle of the PAC at best.

Thanks for confirming our relevance by visiting our space!

End of the day, two teams playing for one more win, winner ends the year in the top 25 (and nobody is gonna ask you why you think they don't deserve it, sorry!). That's relevant.

Or the next day, doesn't matter who wins except in two very small markets. More money, but fewer viewers, fewer attendees. Just doesn't matter.

By the way, did you notice in the LV bowl, ASU players chippin' away, trash talking Boise State, all the while being served their lunch in a brown paper bag? Reminded me of last year. I really am glad this year Whit has the team on a more disciplined footing.

@ Mr. Obvious

I gave no spin at all little brother. I gave FACTS. You are the one spinning my friend. You can't face the fact that both BYU and Tulsa are ranked higher than the Utes so you try to pull a non-related red herring out of your hat.

Major fallacy of logic.

Saint George, Utah

Mr. Obvious,
Hmmm,so ridiculous you took the bait and added your pathetic two cents to all the lost U fans who have nothing better to do than comment on Y articles. Like I said, no problem with the football program, but some of you U fans are too sad!

Layton, Utah

love2 troll

Boy I can't stop laughing, The utes are a "very relevant and tough team." uhhhhh why?
By losing and looking very pitiful doing it, at home to a 2 win team?
Getting blown out 3 times in conference games?
By being 7-5?
lol, not sure why that makes them so relevant and tough.

Layton, Utah


If Ga-Tech is worried about a team with an offense ranked #110 in the nation, then they might as well not show up.

Getting a rise out of Cougie fans really is too easy.

"Getting a rise out of Cougie fans really is too easy."

Getting a rise out of the Ute offense is not easy, unfortunately for you haters.

Layton, Utah

Love 2 trall

all you byu haters just need to give it a rest, congratulate both teams for going to a bowl game and hope they both win GO UTES, GO COUGARS WIN
