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

I can't stop laughing and your pathetic comment! Utah's terrible 110 ranked offense brought BYU's defense to their knees to the point where they were begging for their misery to end. BYU's defense just rolled over and played dead like an old worn out hound dog. It was the funniest thing I've ever seen.

Don't bother bringing up our loss to Colorado for revenge sake. At least Utah didn't quit!

"At least utah didn't quit!"

They just didn't even bother to show up. Hard to quit when you aren't even there and against colorado they weren't even there. This has been a common problem with whittingham's teams, they think they are better than they are and don't bother preparing for, or playing in, the game. This happened against colorado this year, tcu, notre dame and boise st last year, unlv, new mexico, wyonimg, colorado st, you name it they didn't even show up for it.

Then of course there are the 3 games they simply quit in this year, asu, washington, and california.

Pretty pathetic.

Which means that Utah's best effort wasn't enough to beat Colorado, but we'll never know about whether or not BYU would have beat Utah if BYU had given their best effort. Actually, I'm 95% sure that if BYU had given their best effort, they would have beat up Utah pretty bad.

Thanks for clarifying that for us.

First of all, the only thing anyone can comment on is that this is a bowl game. Not the best bowl, probably one of the bottom feeders. But then again, this has been BYU's year as an independent and the entire Cougar athletic department trying to sell this as an exposure thing when all it came down to was $$$$. The rest of the athletic department was thrown under the bus. Does this look like a trend with BYU Athletics? The Cougars qualified as "bowl eligible" on the back of some very weak teams. You can spin this game any way you want but this season was decided a long time ago. You can't trash talk Utah as they showed up on the the field against the Cougars. Let's just end this season with class and call off the bowl game or be honest with the fans about the $$$'s and drop the hype about exposure.

Sorry, duece, not buyin. Ute fans bragging about their 2 mil then bagging on the Y how it was only about the money? Two teams playing for a spot in the top 25 is somehow not relevant, yet the last significant thing the team on the hill did was September 17th?

Spin and sell all you want, but watch the ratings, the attendance and watch the rankings. What you will find out is that people don't want to SEE El Paso on tv any more than they want to travel there.

@BYU people,

You guys are hilarious.

Good luck in your "home game" with the game against your twin, relevance wannabes.

Wasn't that an awesome game to watch back on September 17th? I'm surprised you still remember the day when Utah took BYU to the shed and beat the living daylights out them.

"Spin and sell all you want, but watch the ratings, the attendance and watch the rankings. What you will find out is that people don't want to SEE El Paso on tv any more than they want to travel there".

Y Grad / Y Dad, if the roles were reversed and BYU was in the Sun Bowl playing an ACC team and Utah was in Dallas playing Tulsa. Would you be praising the Sun Bowl and making fun of our bowl match up? Remember Washington State the "bottom feeders" of the Pac-12 you Y fans like to make fun of? A few weeks ago, BYU schedules them for next year and you guys call them a quality Pac-12 opponent for your schedule. When people watch football games, they don't care about geography, they care about their team and who they're playing. You Y fans are so desperate to find a way to down play Utah's success.

If BYU was playing in el paso it would still be the worst destination in the UAS. Of course you're not going there anyway, neither are any other utah "fans", so all of the bragging it up is nothing more than laughable.

However the Armed Forces Bowl will be filled with Cougar fans and Dallas/Ft. Worth is a great place to go. Of course el paso would be filled with BYU fans if that is where they went. Just the difference between a regional pac12 bottom feeder and a well known team with more national accolades and a bigger fanbase than it's little brother to the north.

As far as utah's matchup is concerned, well it is probably a good one, two unranked and mediocre teams that won't travel. Congratulations?

Fair question. If the roles were reversed and you came on a BYU article trash talking, hmmm, yes, I would make fun of your bowl game to your face (digitally speaking). IF I showed up on your article, I would be praising coach Whit for getting his team ready to compete for a spot in the top 25.

Oh, and we called Wazoo a quality opponent for your benefit. One point victory in over time. Quality.

To: Y Grad / Y Dad | 12:07 a.m. Dec. 27, 2011 - First, I am not making any stand on what the Univ. of Utah does. My comment was about BYU and the upcoming bowl game. The U did not come out and make any other statement about moving to the Pac-12 other than it was about money and a bigger conference association. BYU on the other hand came out and talked all about national exposure when in fact it was about the money. For BYU, this was probably one of the worst seasons regarding exposure you would want for a program. There were numerous games against second tier teams on TV where half the seats were empty. My only comment was to show some class and cancel the bowl game and get your act together for next year. Stand up and simply say it was all about the money and leave it at that.

@Scott Farcus

Glad I can get that kind of reaction out of you with a post like that. I wonder what your reaction was when Utah lost at home to a 2-10 team?

Besides, judging by the polls, even after the BYU-Utah game, it seems that those of you laughing at my post are the minority.
