Are you kidding me?Utah has to win their bowl game to make the PAC 12 feel
good about their decision?Please explain Colorado then.
@FuzzThere is no explanation for Colorado. They were a runner-up
that Larry Scott hope not to have to call on. They get beat by almost
everybody. (Sorry, Ute fans. Too soon?)
A1994, CU was not a "runner-up," they were supposed to be part of what
Scott hoped would be a package deal for at least another Big XII school. We were
technically the runner-up, but all indications are that CU is the team the
conference is "stuck with" and we are the ones making money for the
conference going bowling and giving the conference better exposure by winning
our out-of-conference games on the road (like 9/17. Too soon?).
Come on byu fans, it's getting old. I cannot believe the hatred that you have,
again I will tell all of you that were born in the 80's and 90's. Utah and
Colorado have always been in the plans. Early as the early 80's when the PAC-8
took in ASU, and AU. It was time for them to move, football has excelled over
that period thanks to coach Mac, UM, and Coach Whit. Also during that period
the Utes won a number of basketball conference championships and went to at
least one sweet 16, one great 8, and one final 4. Plus ONE Nobel Peace Prize
award winner.It's not just athletics for all these PAC-12
Presidents. Utah and Colorado fit in very well with these other schools. The
IVY League of the West. Ten of which are state run institutions. In the long
run this oppurtunity we have being Utah Utes along with the other schools in the
PAC-12 will benefit the University of Utah much more than any of you y fans will
ever understand. And NO your taxes do not pay for athletics at the U.
