wynn threw an interception not hall

Max = PoorSport

Everyone is wanting other Ute players to be repramanded. WHy? They said it before the game to pump up the team. It just proves that BYU players and its fans are poor sports win or lose. And why should the Administration need to apologize for fans? The fans involved need to man up and apologize. If Max would have said it before to pump the team up it would have come off as smack talk.

Way to go Mr Max Hall,somewhere,some how the Ute fans have forgotten that without BYU they would be nothing,the exposure they have recieved has been at the expense of the BYU team.
Grow up.
BYU has made the Mountain west what it is and if they were to leave it,it would be what it was the wacky wac.

Stop the Hate

Stop the Hate.

Go Utes!!!

It is disappointing to see the number of obvious BYU supporters who support Max Hall's hate comments. It is further disappointing to note the number of BYU supporters who seem to think that Hall's "non-apology" just satisfies everything. Part of a meaningful apology is SINCERITY. This was obviously lacking in Hall followup.

Character counts and Hall showed the world he has none and that the BYU program is truly flawed and more importantly, reflected a contentious spirit (we all know where that’s from)... and this episode reflected poorly on the Church.

Very disturbing, irreparable harm. This is how BYU’s 2009 season will be remembered.

Utah…a true class program that is building a dynasty, a program…not just one game.

Utah Football lives and plays by a true Code of Honor.

How short sighted the BYU program is.

Shame on you Mr. Hall. Shame on you.

wow

BYU fans and Utah fans grow up! Time to start policing your own on both sides. This rivalry can be fun, but come on everyone, it's a game. People don't "deserve" to lose based on other people's actions. You either score enough points to win or you don't. Mr. Hall, I regret that your family had to deal with a definitely classless small group of Utah fans. It should have been handled a year ago and people should have been reprimanded a year ago. You should have been congratulating your teammates. Your behavior was classess.

You all are ridiculous. This is a rivalry game, and at that one of the best in the country. Its comments like that, that make the rivalry great. Get over it and look forward to getting pummeled again next year!!!

I guess we should reprimand Wayne Howard. Isn't he the one that started it? Wasn't he the UTAH coach that escallated it?

"Utah Football lives and plays by a true Code of Honor"

too bad their fans dont

Get Real

Utes and Cougs should be upset that they are weak far distant one and two in a pitiful conference. These are not hateful comments, just true facts.

Okay Okay

Notice how many more Utah fans there are in the stands at LES than there are BYU fans at RES. That says it all. I went to the BYU Oklahoma game and BYU made up .1% of the fans there. The Oklahoma fans were some of the classiest people I have ever seen, even when the majority were drinking alcohol sold at the stadium, and even after they lost. Utah has a serious problem with most of their fans. Let BYU resolve the issue with Max and let Utah resolve the issue of the majority of their fans who are abusive and out of control, and frankly pathetic.

re: Anonymous 12:33 am

Actually He did call my Alumni, or soon to be Alumni, classless. I wasn't accepted at the Y and so I'm at the U right now. But I am a Cougar fan.

He was explaining his frustration with certain U fans in his apology to those he criticized without thinking such as the organization and university.

I have one thing to say.

Thank God freedom of speech still allows Max Hall to say whatever he wants, even if I don't personally agree with it.

Shame on MWC for their attempt to quelch it.

re: okay okay

wow, you have a lot of bitterness. let it go, it will only consume you.

BYU, Where Hate Speech is Good

Good article.

Ute

I am a mormon student University of Utah and I grew up in Utah county. Not only is Max Hall incredibly rude for saying this, he is also generalizing over a lot of people when he's saying he hates ALL Utah fans. Thanks for ruining the respect that I still had for BYU. Go Utes

The mwc

can not be taken seriously until they get us out of the mtn and make utah have some class.

I think Hall really showed his true colors by his statements. Congrats buddy...any respect you or your school had, is now gone. Truly classless. Sore winners are the biggest losers.
