@79UteLOLBut the Utes will be back. They've had a great
@79UteSpeaking personally I do not gloat in the fact the Utes have
struggled for a couple of seasons. After all we have been in that very
predicament ourselves. I do appreciate mature dialogue with friends who have
opposing loyalties. I am sure you have confidence the Utes will rise again.
Thank you for such a beautiful, objective post gdog, very refreshing! As a BYU
fan, I agree. BYU's future is definitely uncertain, but I believe they made
the correct choice in leaving the MWC for the WCC. I have absolutely loved the
fact that I can watch all of the football games, basketball games, volleyball
games, and rugby games any time I want because BYU holds those rights. It has
been awesome. Even Utah fans must enjoy being able to watch that Utah vs
BYU romping any time they want, all because BYU left the MWC for the WCC (I
personally don't ever want to watch that particular game again). BYU has
gained more exposure in all sports, and it has been great!
I say BYU going independent and partnering with the WCC was a bold, necessary,
and smart move on their part. I actually think BYU should of done it before the
PAC 12 invited Utah. Maybe BYU was hoping for a MWC with Utah, BYU, TCU, and
Boise State in it. That way, the MWC would have had solid football schools with
other markets like San Diego State and UNLV that maybe, just maybe could have
risen up at some point. Anyway that is not relative now.I also think
BYU might have not wanted to upset Utah by bolting the MWC before Utah's
departure to the PAC 12. It was a no brainer for Utah to go to the PAC 12. As it
is, both the Utes and Cougars are better off now, but there are some unknowns to
worry about for both. I would say more so for BYU, but not because I am a Ute
fan. The unknowns that I would be concerned about if I were a Cougar fan would
be mainly how conference alignment plays out over the next couple of years or so
and the November schedule.
