I don't care where they come from - I just can't stand this
Independent thing any longer. It feels lonely. And now we are going to Samoa
to get players. It makes it feel even farther away. I need
"I need therapy."Worrying about losing twice Colorado would
do that to people I guess.
Can't we just lower the academic requirements for football players? Seems
to work well for other schools :-)
@utah-hawaii-alum aka naval vetHere you are again. Does your
obsession with all things BYU have no end?Do you actually think your snide
remarks carry any weight?The fact of the matter is, BYU wrote the
book on recruiting polynesian players. It's been going on for 50
years now.Among the programs which have copied BYU with recruiting
Polynesian kids are SC and Washington, Actual Elite Schools of the Pac 10+, and
yes, even your beloved Posing Utes navy boy, Copy BYU, it started with
McBride..Once again proving that imitation is indeed the most
sincere form of flattery.Not only does Utah still live in BYU's
shadow, they emulate everything BYU does.Now, go out there Eccles
U's....Red Tailed-Rock Hawks and try to produce 23 Conference Championships
in football,a National Championship, a Heisman Trophy winner and Outland's,
and another 14 National Awards. And then try to produce a College Hall of Famer
or 7 as has BYU, and maybe Super Bowl and NFL MVP's.And maybe
then, ESPN will put 11 of your games a year on their Network too.Until then....Still Wannabees!
the best Samoa athletes go to the U now. The Y gets the left overs. PAC12 and
BCS vs independent and Armed Forces Bowl. No brainer.
I don't read articles about U of U Football because it doesn't
interest me. It cracks me up how these BYU haters will read articles about BYU
Football and then take the time to write something about the article that they
read. Utah Football, in the PAC 12 and still have "little brother"
@locablueIf you are refering to a certain local school to the north,
well, they don't have to lower academic requirements for the football team.
The standard academic requirements there are already that low.
International Cougar FanIn the last year I have read exactly one
UofU Sports article and that was about the women's gymnastics team!
Otherwise just don't have the time or interest for UofU Sports.Every team has some crazy fans, so maybe there are some BYU fans that take the
time to read and comment on UofU articles? I know, seems crazy, but it is
BYU and the State of Utah have strong ties to Polynesia, it's good to see
the coaching staff renew their efforts there.
Patriot I guess that our comments mean the other schools, including Utah,
don't have the same high academic standards, so the kids have to accept
what they can get.Utah-Hawaii Alum. You need to go to the Salt Lake
Tribune Website and you will see a propaganda machine for Utah. Each paper
supports their schoo. Try expanding your reading sources and you will see what
I am talking about.
There is a lot of U of U talk on this comment board yet not a lot of talk on
what the article is actually about. This only tells me one thing.
I like it when people like striker talk about Colorado. The Utes lost to them,
how sad. But its not sad at all that we lost to the team that lost to Colorado
re:CougarBlueJust stating a fact. If my son can play at the next
level - NFL - or at least wants a shot then I would obviously want him to play
in the BIG spot light of the Pac12 and BCS and not isolated in independence
waste land playing Idaho State. Sorry but the Y is going to find its talent pool
dwindling every year unless the higher - ups at the university make a top
priority into getting into the Big 12 conference. I am starting to wonder if the
Y's days participating in the NCAA are numbered anyway with the way college
football is changing moving to more and more Sunday play and creating all these
Ernest,Post that obtuse remark under a UofU story. Cougar fans could not
Cougarista"Cougar fans could not care less."Then
why did you respond to it?
patriotGive it a rest; the BCS is dead and only a delusional Utah
fan would think that finishing 8th, with a losing record in the PAC 12, makes U
a big boy (Washington State welcomes the company).As usual, BYU was
good enough to finish in the Top 25 and play 11 games on national television.As usual, Utah finished UNRANKED, with an UGLY season-ending loss at
home to a 10-loss team, and hardly any nationally televised games.It's laughable that Utah fans are so insecure that two years after
Utah's invite to the PAC 12, instead finding a PAC 12 blog to talk with
smack with Trojan and Ducks fans, you're still here obsessing about a
"fading, irrelevant, independent, mid-major" supposedly "former"
rival.Once a little brother, always a little brother.
The NFL will find talent where ever it is. Its not just the Big Boys and Utah
that get the picks. Look at Utah State and the draft picks they had.
cougarista: Sure, we care a lot. It's why we keep talking about the CU
@ernieWe only care because it's funny, not because it matters.
BlutoSandy, UT@utah-hawaii-alum aka naval vetOnce again
proving that imitation is indeed the most sincere form of flattery.--------Then why isn't there a single team in the country
"copying" BYU's errant move into independence with a MWC/Sun Belt
schedule?Every other team is running in one direction
(BCS/Playoffs). BYU is the only one running in the other direction
(irrelevance).Ha ha ha.
DuckhunterHighland, UT@ernieWe only care because
it's funny, not because it matters.-----------BINGO!!!I think the man FINALLY woke up.We talk about
BYU because they are great comedy. Not because they matter. And certainly not
because anyone is obsessed.Now wait for the reply about why that
can't be.in 3, 2, 1...
@tomahawk red"Once again proving that imitation is indeed the
most sincere form of flattery."You managed to copy me but
I'm just amused by it, not particularly flattered. Not able to come up with
your own material huh?LOL!
Very Shakespearean, comedic and tragic. Love it!
Tomahawk RedIrrelevance is finishing 8th in the conference, LOSING
to every conference opponent with a winning record, and failing to win the
pathetically weak PAC 12 South because you were dominated in your final home
game by one of the worst teams in the country.
