Time to start winning some conference games. Looking forward to this one against Cal.

It's nice to see the Niners winning with Alex at QB. He didn't look very polished, but they handed the Lions their first loss of the season. Keep up the good work.


The funny thing about Cullen's "dirty, dirty" play was that Alexcih was shoving John White when Cullen cleaned him from the side. Stupid play, but at least Cullen was picking on someone that wasn't a hundred and ten pounds smaller than himself.

Don't be fooled by the Post-Gazette's link for the story "Mendenhall quiets his critics yet again". It is about Rashard, not Roscoe.

Love Bergstom's comments about the Ute's play. The Pitt player just did not like being dominated.

Great year for Ute fans...to look back and reminisce

Unlike Y-ners, we need only go back a couple of years to remember the good old days, not a couple of generations.

Been to many, many games at RES and Utah fans have been sneaking beer and hard liquor into RES for decades. Take a look around the stands after a game and you'll see plenty of empty beer and liquor containers.

Utah fans get all nostalgic about 2004 because Utah has NOTHING worthy of being nostalgic about prior to 2004.

Saint George, UT

Mid major: I don't think cougar was saying they bought the beer there. Been to Wyo games and others, lot of drinking, didn't buy it there, but they did it to keep from freezing, you know anti-freeze.


"Utah fans get all nostalgic about 2004 because Utah has NOTHING worthy of being nostalgic about prior to 2004"

Y fans have nothing to be nostalgic about after 1984. Unless of course your nostalgic about the Utes dominating the rivalry 7 of 10, waxing the Y on their home feild 54 - 10, and watching the Utes win BCS bowls that is! I guess I would prefer to be nostalgic recently about my team, then having it be 27 years ago, what about you?

BYU fans have much to be nostalgic about since 1984 -- Heisman Trophy, Doak Walker, Outland Trophy, Davey O'Brien, and Sammy Baugh winners, multiple, National College Football Hall of Fame inductees, a dozen AP Top 25 finishes, multiple 10+ win seasons, 20+ conference championships, and many, many beatdowns of the kids on the hill, and many memorable bowl games, including the 1996 Cotton Bowl, which was every bit as much of an accomplishment as the only two highlights of Utah's entire football existence.

btw, 56-6 is still the largest beatdown in history of the BYU-Utah series, and U know who was the object of that beatdown at Rice Stadium.

It's hillarious that BYU already has a PAC 12 win, while Utah is still winless in their new conference.

"Unless of course your nostalgic... I guess I would prefer to be nostalgic recently about my team..."

Utah is a two-hit wonder, and little else; enjoy your "nostalgia", because it's fading quickly.

It's too bad that even in the heyday of Utah football, the Utes still weren't able to finish in the AP Top 25 as many times as BYU.

Just curious, do they teach English at the U.

"your" /= "you're" or "you are"



Let me help you out that cotton bowl was played in 1997 not 1996 it was almost 15 years ago lol! Also that season does not match our two BCS bowl titles. For 1 the Y was'nt even un-beatin that year, 2 they beat an overrated Kansas st. team by 4?? Not sure how that compares to two undefeated seasons, and two BCS bowl wins??

Your laughable you say its hillarious the Y has a PAC12 win before Utah. Well how hillarious does it make it the Y was waxed on their home feild 54 - 10 by a winless PAC12 Utah team then??

Let me help you with your confusion about BYU's 1996 Cotton Bowl winning team (the bowl was played in 1997, but during the 1996 season).

If the BCS had started in 1996 with the exact rules as existed in 2004, BYU would have been a lock to be the first BCS buster.

BYU 1996 won back-to-back games against Top 25 opponents
Utah 2004 didn't play a single Top 25 opponent (both polls)

BYU played 7 teams with winning records: 9-3, 6-5, 6-5, 7-4, 8-4, 10-2, 9-3
Utah played 4 teams with winning records: 7-5, 7-5, 7-5, 8-4

BYU won 14 games; BYU's only loss was on the road to #16/#15 Washington(9-3)
Utah won 12 games; Utah's toughest road games were CSU(7-5) and Wyoming(7-5)

BYU's quarterback won the Sammy Baugh Trophy and finished 3rd in Heisman voting
Utah's quarteback won NOTHING and finished 4th in Heisman voting

Comparing bowl opponents is a joke:

BYU beat #17/#17 Kansas State
Utah beat #25/unranked Pittsburgh

BYU finished #5/#5
Utah finished #4/#5

What's hillarious is claiming you're one of the big boys when it's already late October and you haven't won your first game in your "big boy" conference.

More and more the BYU-Utah game is proving to be just what it was, a fluke!
