It might make more sense for the dnews to just link directly to Millers blog and
eliminate the middle man ( facer) all together.
Did anyone notice that it's still the 'PAC-10' blog and not PAC-12?Talk about the red carpet treatment and welcome wagon. Welcome Utah and CU...
I guess?Over 15,000 show up for CU scrimmage. Wonder how many show
up today for the Utes?
So, together, Colorado and the Utes make 1 total team, correct?
sammyg,Did anyone notice that spring practice came and went and ESPN
was no were near their tds "partner"........."Talk about the red
carpet treatment and welcome wagon"
sammyg:Did you also notice the BigTen didn't change their name to
the BigTwelve with the addition of Nebraska? Did you notice the BigTen only
made a slight modification to their logo when they added their 11th team in Penn
State? It has to do with "branding"; not "snubbing".Besides, as of today, Utah and Colorado are still officially members of
the MWC and the Big 12. The Utes and Buffalos don't become official members of
the Pac until July 1st. Nevertheless, despite their current conference
affiliations, ESPNs Pac-10 blogger still writes daily tributes to both of our
programs. That's respect.And I noticed you don't have any of that.
Your ESPN blogger lumps you in with all the other mid-majors. But I guess that
only makes sense; what with you being an honorary WAC team now.Time
to face up. Utah has been in the drivers seat of this rivalry since last
Hey Facer....I know it tough to find a interesting story up on the rice bowl
hill.....but a weather report? C'MON!!
Naval:Nice to see you and you logic back.Did YOU notice
that the PAC is looking for a TV contract?Is that
"respect", or desperation?Did you notice the PAC-12 logo
as they went to sew on the Ute's field?Naval, maybe we could look
for a nice summer day for the "spring scrimmage" for the Utes?Better yet, why not on the Dallas Coyboys field?===Why can't we talk sports without the arrogance?
Veritas Aequitas it seems that arrogancefrom you and other Y fans is okay based
on many Y fans comments on Utah threads, but heaven forbid a Utah fan be
arrogant. Really what was arrogant about Navel Vets post? He, like most Utah
fans are sick of Y fans trolling their teams articles and leaving derisive posts
(the proof is in many of the posts above and most every other UofU thread). In
regards to ESPN, the knock from U fans seem justified after all we heard from Y
fans about ESPN and BYU being partners etc. etc. yet there is scant ESPN
coverage of Y this football preseason while there is has been a fair amount for
Utah. I wish the Y well for the most part; I just have a hard time with Y fan
jealousy which has hit a new high since June 2010 which leads to TDS fans making
borderline nonsensical fact challenged comments about the UofU.
@pebblesAs with all of your posts....LOL!
Rock Of The MarneYou are so right. Ute fans are always very polite
and respectful of BYU. They are just plain classy. The classiest would be Dave
S. and his brother Howard S.. The most articulate one (and the best speller) is
hands down Hedgehog. Plus, Ute fans calling out BYU fans for
trolling is in no way hypocritical or laughable. When I read the comment boards
for BYU, I am always amazed at the complete maturity and brotherly love I find
there from the Utes. And, above all, they are NEVER arrogant. They are truly a
credit to the state of Utah.
Rock,As a fellow Ute, I appreciate your frustration but please
reread your post and see where you might have been arrogant too. While we cannot
control what they may post, we can always control how we choose to respond. I
would hope that we can represent our University in such a way as to not
embarrass anyone else representing our University.Go Utes!
Veritas,You imply that proof of the Pac 12's desperation is that
they are looking for a new TV contract. Does that mean that BYU was desperate
when they went looking for, an got, a TV deal with ESPN?Now if we
could only get Donny Osmond to show up at practice....
pebblesI followed the link to ESPN weighing in on PAC 12 football
and this is the scintillating news about Utah:"The Utes were
scheduled to scrimmage Saturday but it was called up due to bad weather and was
rescheduled for Monday."Impressive.Frankly, I
couldn't care less about pre-season "coverage". Even the pre-season
polls are meaningless. The only meaningful coverage begins after the first
kickoff. Until then, it's all just talk.
@sammygThere were litterally 10's of people at the utah scrimmage
yesterday. The tv news made the mistake of showing a couple of angles that
showed the stands and there couldn't have 100 people there. This on a beautiful
day with perfect weather. Much like utahs offense the fans didn't bother to show
up. In their defense though it is hard to get out of a shift at taco bell.
Duckhunter,Nicely done, going with the mildly amusing "fast
food angle." It's a tough call, deciding between it and the equally
overdone "living in your parent's basement" slam, but I think you
chose well.May I suggest rolling out Subway rather than Taco Bell,
or is that too edgy?
Utah'95 | 11:30 p.m. April 11, 2011 FPO, AE Veritas,You
imply that proof of the Pac 12's desperation is that they are looking for a new
TV contract. Now if we could only get Donny Osmond to show up at
practice.... ===You disregard my response to Naval and tell me
what I imply? Maybe I implied respect. (Personally, I believe I implied
disrepect to Naval's arrogance, which other's take as my own arrogance, and
reply with their own arrogance... Funny, eh?)... I could have cared
less about Donny, but if you want him at the U's practice, I'm sure there are
people you could contact.Plenty of people, known and unknown to all
of us, have already been at the U practice. Some, the DN chooses to report,
others want us to know so they blog about it. Others just come and leave and
don't feel the need to tell everyone.Whatever floats everyone's
Why 90Cougar, I beleive that deserves a very rare and seldom used
Thanks ducky for the attendance report. Got to hand it to those CU
fans, they know they are lucky to be in the PAC-10.2 and appreciate the
opportunity to compete. Come thick or thin they will support their team.The ESPN PAC-10.2 Blog was exciting to follow wasn't it? In case you
missed it, here it is again..."The Utes were scheduled to
scrimmage Saturday but it was called up due to bad weather and was rescheduled
for Monday."I was blown away by the news.
Troll nation is out in force today! It's a veritible who's who of BYU trolls,
the toolbox must be half empty in BYU land their all over here.
News flash, the 15K attendance at CU was for their Spring game, Utes scrimmage
where "scant attendance" was seen was just a normal practice. There
will be 15K at the Red & White game, don't worry. That's when you'll see
some more coverage on the Utes in the PAC-12 blog on ESPN, too. Oh, and if you
want a summary of the Spring coverage so far, just go to the blog and click on
"Utah Utes" on the right side.Ted Miller has explained
many times that the name won't change to PAC-12 blog until July 1, especially
since baseball and other sports are still operating under PAC-10.
Ibleedcrimson"It's a veritible who's who of BYU trolls, the
toolbox must be half empty in BYU land..."Rather than worrying
about half-empty toolboxes in BYU land, U should be much more worried about the
empty offensive toolboxes on the hill, especially that one labeled "Utah
Rumor has it that KWhit has invited East HS girls powerpuff team to play defense
in Utah's spring game to give the Utes a fighting chance on offense.
I love the comments by BYU fans about the attendance at theses scrimiages.Did you see your "highlights" from your spring game, there was no
one there.I guarantee the Utes will have a lot more people at the spring
game on Saturday.
