The Utes play MT State. The Grizz (UM) are a perennially 1-AA (FCS) power.

Just keep beating that BYU is on ESPN drum; its a nice change of pace from the usual 1984 rhetoric.

Who else could the Big10 get at this point? what candidates are out there that would go? I agree that BYU is the best option. Pac10 had Texas and it's friends in mind, and they would all only go if texas went. Of course they would want those huge schools over Utah.... But yes Utah was the next best option, I don't feel bad about that. Utah is a smaller school from a small conference, we are very glad to have moved up. Best of luck to Utah and BYU, both great teams.

The reason for the statement game reference is because the game is televised across the nation on espn. The entire nation has the game available to them if they choose to watch it. BYU knows that viewers from across the nation will be tuning in to watch so they want to put on a good showing against an SEC opponent. Utah on the other hand is regulated to Kjazz and Versus, even their game against a top 25 opponent (USC) will be televised on versus. Have fun and enjoy the great pleasures of viewing games on kjazz and versus ute trolls LOL. Dont worry though Christy B and Wedge, you do get one game on ESPN2 thanks to BYU of course.

You remind me of Obama. You know, I'll cut the deficeit in half within three years. Can't mark either of your words because your predictions are off target.

So what you're saying is, you CAN'T link me up to any prognostications for articles in the prior year, but rather frantically and emotionally invented your own support, and tried to pass it off as a fact.

I thought so.

It looks like you also can't admit when you're wrong. Typical of your fanbase.

If 10/1 rolls around and the sons of provo are 1-3; what then?
