Lost my testimony

That's it - my testimony is gone. Max's hideous statement just destroyed my belief in humanity itself. My goodness how could you Max????

Classy is as classy does

Enough said. Max apologized to those who deserve it. If you are a classy individual you will accept that apology and you will move on. You will realize that you are nothing like the fans he meant to reference.

If you still take offense, then maybe you are rightfully associated among the classless fans who throw beer and crudely degrade a person's mom in a sexual way. So you deserve his initial derision in this category. Don't hate if you don't want to be hated. And quit whining about him calling you out for it.

BTW-Max's comments were not classy when it came out as generalizing all Utes. But giving an apology is more classy than those who won't accept one. I can't believe so many people are offended by being called classless, considering how little class those same people show after.

I don't catch the "all in the heat of the moment" excuses. Wasn't the game over? Had BYU not been declared the winner? Wasn't the emotion left on the football field? I could understand Maxy saying that in the huddle to fire up his boys in OT, but long after the game had been decided.... ???

Was Maxy really just upset because he didn't have a very good game--12 for 32? (The freshman kid from Utah completed a higher percentage than Maxy.) Is he still frustrated that he personally didn't prove anything against the U? My, my, he is going to carry that with him for a very long time.....

BYU 3 out of the last 4 --- enuf said!!!!

This rivalry has gotten more and more bitter every year and the media is what feeds it.. comment boards like this one only generate HATE.. there is no dialog here.. only the breeding of HATE.. shut down the comment boards on the newspaper and radio sites and gag the sports radio idiots that only want to feed this monster of HATRED.

Re: Bench him for the Bowl | 4:4

You're totally off your rocker and obviously a Utah fan. Anything is okay with you if it will make BYU look bad and Utah look good... U sicken me with your attitude.

Former Ute Fan!




Stop begging the question- there is BEER and other alcohol inside of RES, whether it's sold or not (plastic flasks, rum and coke, anyone?).


Anybody who has stood within five feet of the Utah student section can affirm this simple fact.



I don't think Max made this up. I know for a fact that the most vulgar, and bigoted comments I have ever heard at any sporting events come from Utah fans at RES.


I did my grad work at a Pac-10 school and never heard anything remotely as trashy as I have heard at the games at RES.



I used to be a Ute Fan and now I love my Boise State Broncos. Yes............they have CLASS!!!!!

The voice of experience

After the game, the only team that praised the performance and courage of their opponents was BYU.

We heard nothing from Utah. Kyle Whittingham can't even say BYU.

The haters, which seems to be some Utes' only way to be fans, are all over the internet.

This would be a tempest in a teapot if the Utes were not so thin-skinned.

Nothing worse than being beaten by Max Hall, a player you despise. Nothing easier than to forget yet another loss by making a stupid comment after a hard fought game into much more than it is.

Let's see how classy Ute fans really are. Will you be be pitifully small-minded or will you be big enough to accept and apology and move on? Will you live up to the great sportsmanship displayed by your stars, Stevenson Sylvester, Brian Johnson, and Eric Weddle? Can you be more than petty? True sportsmen accept apologies, even apologies that are forced.

In this case, however, the voice of experience suggests small-minded will win out every time.

Each pitiful response diminishes the greatness of your university. Where are the U's moral leaders? Accept the apology. Move on.

Accountable Utes?

The only person Kyle Whittingham has ever held accountable for poor behavior was Joe Glenn. Remember?

Does the name Brett Ratliff ring a bell?

Accountability?

Don't make me laugh.

AK Cougar

To: Utefan & True Ute & California Utefan. Thanks for your acceptance of Hall's apology.

Sad posts from many that can't wait to cast stones.

Go Cougars. Go Utes. Make the MWC proud in your bowl games.

NO YEWTS ALLOWED

As far as Kyle's wife being assaulted... Your error is in your thinking that a BYU fan started it...

TCU Fan

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The Hard Truth

Rip on Max all you want. He still has more class all by himself than the entire Ute program has put together.

RE: Bench him for the Bowl

It's obvious you are not a BYU fan, but a BYU hater. Why should he be benched when he does the same as all else? YOU are saying that BYU thinks it is better than the rest. Those who attend school there are held to a higher standard as far as rules go, but to say they think they are higher makes it obvious you have a problem with BYU. Let's just move on, or let's discipline all who had something "not nice" to say on Saturday. That would include the precious Brooks and who know how many other players for the Utes. He said something stupid, he apoligized, let's move on!

Clueless



I've attended Utah games for 15 years now and I know for a fact that there is BEER there!

Go Horn Frogs!!!!!!!

A Utah man am I

Yes I am vile and crude and ill-mannered. But there have been more LDS prophets graduate from the U than from the Y. So there! Take that! Even our beloved coach Whit had the sense to come over to the correct side of the rivalry. I am sure he is totally discusted by the things that Max said.

I can't stand the blue losers down south!

Get Out of the Rivalry

I say they stop playing each other. BYU doesn't need Utah on their schedule. They gain nothing from beating Utah and we have to put up with a lot of crap if we lose. Go independent if we have to. We sell out our other home games anyway. It shouldn't be an economic issue. I'm tired of the MWC. I'm tired of seeing other fans in the MWC with vile and disparaging signs criticizing my religion. I’ve attended games at other MWC sites including Utah and have been the target of their bigotry and hate. I don’t see anything being done by the MWC or the other schools. It’s not worth it. Let Utah find another rival.

Re: Poor Max

Cut the self righteous crap. Who are you to stand in judgment of a young man's entire life? Grow up! You are good example of what Max was talking about.

RSL

Yeah, Go RSL!!! BYU and Ute fans reunite and remember the glory we shared just one week ago. Forget the hate and join in the love of the beautiful game, not the ugly American cousin!

not a BYU fan

I have always taught my children that HATE is a very hurtful word. Not only did Max Halls comments make him look like dumb but what does it say for the school he is playing for? Is BYU really that much better??? I think not we are still waiting to get paid for a softball game and that was 2 months ago. Come on BYU get it together
