GO AGGIES! I visit the Spectrum every year and if you appreciate a college game atmosphere...The Spectrum is a great example!

USU fans have no other life: immature - with all it's negative implications. They won't elevate themselves by trying to bring others down. And still Aggie fans wonder why USU isn't taken seriously.

Great basketball. I laughed hard when so many people got bent out of shape last year over byu's jumbotron's messages of "enjoy the loss little brother" or something very tame like that. Heaven forbid the USU basketball team and fans endure something so awful and mean! I hope they recovered emotionally!

For anyone who got upset over that - I'm glad it bothered you.

Is this game on TV? If so, what time and what channel?

Nevermind, I found out that it is on TV. 7:00pm on channel 44 or one of the ESPN channels.

It may have even been creepier if none of those people said anything. Just one person yell, "you are going to get killed tomorrow" or something like that.

GoUtesss, yes the game is on. I think it is 14.1 for digital box. I have Dish and I think it is ch. 37. Also it will be on espn3

Notice how the chanting just kind of dies out after a few seconds and the BYU players ignoring them. LOL!

Now I was born in Logan while my Dad attended utah state. My mothers family is all from Logan. I feel a little bit of a warm spot in my heart for usu. But it doesn't change the fact that they are simply small time with small time fans. It shows when they would go that far out of their way, when it is freezing cold outside, to simply make a chant as BYU players get off of the bus. When usu comes to the Marriott Center I never even think about them until I see them on the floor warming up and I quickly forget all about them after they leave defeated. usu fans seem to be obsessed with BYU year round. I guess that is just the difference between being BYU and usu.

re: Duckhunter, Why don't you just pat yourself on the back?

Good luck Aggies

@Duckhunter

Do you duck hunt when there is a chill outside?

What is this go out of their way when it's cold outside business?

I am a Ute fan but applaud USU fans for living life in the Logan cold.

What are they supposed to do? Stay inside and hibernate for 5 months out of the year?

Grow a pair duckhunter.

Go Aggies!

4601, People that actually know basketball have no doubt that the Aggies are very good and very tough to beat at home and they are taken seriously. Do the Aggie students get carried away sometimes? Yes, but we actually have students going to the games....all the games and not just the big games. As for the scoreboard last year it was fine and didn't bother me a bit but I sure like the one from the last ybu visit to the Spectrum much better.

Coach Morrill and Coach Rose are two terrific coaches. They both look to be depleted on talent to me this year though. Still, I wouldn't be surprised to see both have relative success.

I love how that post got the utah "fans" worked up. LOL!

The point is I wouldn't go out into the cold just to stand on the stairs and chant "Go BYU" while usu went into the Marriott Center for a shoot around the day before the game. That simply oozes small time program with small time fans.

I do like that usu fans did it though because it just shows how imprtant BYU is to them.

The fact utah "fans" like little skippy and gdog commented on it, an article about BYU and USU that has nothing at all to do with utah, shows us exactly how much they care about BYU. I love that as well. LOL!

Oh and skippy, yes I certainly go out duck hunting on cold days. Actually nasty stormy days with alot of wind are the best duck hunting days. I look for them and if the wind starts blowing I immediately leave my office and head out to hunt. Love it. But no I wouldn't head out in the cold to watch one of BYU's opponenents get off their bus to go practice. I wouldn't even think about doing that. LOL!

@duckhunter

so explain your obsession with posting on every single utah article?

Go Aggies! I think they win tonight going away.

@ Duckhunter

The example of why you think USU is small time is off.

USU may be small time by some other defintions. But camping out and chanting resembles more fan obsession than small time.

The USU fan behavior is similar to SEC type tailgating, partying, chanting, and camping out. Are they small time.

I say BYU might be small time for having no or little weekend prep for football games. Notice I said 'might be' small time. I actually consider BYU bigger than there independence. They are being shut out right. Some of that is on them as well. Still, BYU has my respect in some ways, just like USU does. I am a Ute but not a subjective hater.

I wish the Deseret news had an edit option after posts are submitted.

It's been my fault, but I look like a grammatical clown sometimes. Yes I know where question marks belong. Save the Ute education comments directed at me brave bird hunter.

where's the beef
Provo, UT

Should be a good game. I really like both coaches. Coach Morrill is probably the best basketball coach in the state. Coach Rose is pretty good also. I graduated from BYU but my kids all go to USU so I usually cheer for both. I have to go with the Cougars tonight but the Spectrum can get rockin when the Cougars come to town.

@gdog

If it were game night and the BYU players were getting off the bus to go into the arena for the game then I would agree with you. But this was the day before the game and BYU was going to the spectrum for a shoot around. aggies fans either went out of their way to find out when BYU was going to practice so they could show up in mass and chant "go aggies" for 20 seconds, or else they camped out there for hours ahead of time hoping BYU would show up so they coudl chant "go aggies" for 20 seconds.

Either way I find it to be kind of sad.

@kosta fesenko aka "duckhunter hunter", "hondo", "officer coolguy", "54-10", "articuno BYU", "noblepromise", "slc BYU fan", etc

I've told you I am simply the balance to your 100 different screen names that you use to troll up every single BYU article. Add in christina b, howie, naval lint, and all the other utah "fans" that help yu troll up all of the BYU articles and I probably don't post anywhere near enough on utah articles to come close to balancing it out. Even with Sammy's help and a couple of other good Cougar fans it isn't enough.

But it is enough to irritate utah "fans" like yourself more than you want to be irritated it. I'll probably keep it up.
