How? How could this happen?

Utah fans...

One or two BYU fans have learned that they can really get the Ute fans amped up by incessantly talking about their ancient and undeserved national championship in 1984, Utah's smaller football stadium, lies about attendance, and generally weaving a dark shadow around every noteworthy that Utah accomplishes.

We, Utah fans, allow them to do it and make them very successful because we can't help but defend who we are. I guarantee, the BYU fans doing this are laughing at every post we put up a post to rebut their stupid remarks.

I suggest we, ALL Utah fans, ignore their comments. They will go away...like the stray kittens they are, they will eventually go away. The one or two individuals who make these inane posts virtually disappeared after the Utes throttled BYU in November. Unfortunately, they returned and are very successful at eliciting a response from Utah fans every time they get on these boards. Let's try something different and ignore them. The results just might surprise us.

That said, thanks Red Rocks for a great showing on the national stage and throughout the season. You have done the University of Utah PROUD!!!!


I'm @ the devaney center watching the warmup. Nwever been to one of them in my life. Got the utah girls to sign my nebraska hat because I can't buy a utah hat in nebraska. The girls were very gracious. Go utah.


The SEC is dominant in most sports. Get used to it. Any college east of the Mississippi is always irrelevant.


You just can't get over the beat down this year in football..Now your on a gymnastics thread trying anything you can to discount anything Utah does. If BYU hadn't given up right before my eyes against a weak Arizona team I might think we had a challenge next year but remember football is far down the list of priorities for you Cougars. Wow how would you like to be a BYU football recurit knowing that football doesn't mean anything to the program.

BYU Trolls are out in

"Farce" as usual!!! Amazing how they have been waiting for the end of the gymnastic finals to continue to try to "heal their hurt"!

I guess washing all those tear stained QUEST T-shirts just did not keep them well enough occupied?!


It just kills me to see Marsden have such terrible finishes year after year. I hear he has been recruited to move to the Lower County to help do something with the YBU gymnastics.


It just got overwith. I thought the girls did real good. Go utes.


Sec----------Alabama in a big "THUD"!


17-31? Sugar bowl?


I think you meant any team WEST of the Mississippi is irrelevant...which is still a false statement.

Title should be

"utes get DAWGED." Anyone familiar with Georgia sports knows that's the right way to spell the word. Way to go Red Rocks. Utah is always a force in gymnastics.


This is a truly amazing site. Whiners whining at other whiners. Get real. Everyone want the big hat, but being 3rd in the Nation is a place most other gym teams. Utah is no longer dominant in women's gym. Get over it. I won't even address the cheap shot at Alabama via the Sugar bowl score. If the two teams played 10 times at full strength, Alabama would win at least 8 - see, I'm not blind. Your team is very good, but not up to SEC standards and likely won't ever be.


Let's face it...Utah is sub-par.

Evil Sensei

It was I who who coined the phrase, "Second place is no place."


Have to say this:

TrueRed: 3rd or 2nd in the nation for five straight years are terrible finishes? You must lead a very delusional existence.

Expres: Utah is not up to SEC standards? Let's see: faced five SEC teams in the Super Six, beat three. Nice to know you can negate your own reasoning.


I guess they began wearing those National Championship t-shirts a little early this year. Maybe all those t-shirts will be on sale now.

"We're #2" T-shirts

I would buy one for both gymnastics and football.

And, we should start selling 2009 NCAA Football Championship T-shirts right now. We already have it won.

We're unstoppable!

GO UTES!!!!!!!!

U fan

The U did amazing this year. Their floor routines were so entertaining to watch! I am proud to be a fan of the Red Rocks! 3rd isn't bad.
