"Congrats BYU fans. You guys almost beat a good team. I've never seen a fan base so proud of a loss before."


I distinctly remember Utah fans beating their chests last season for ALMOST BEATING USC, even though Utah never lead during the entire game and ended up losing by three times as many points to USC as BYU lost to Notre Dame.

The selective memory and inconsistency of Utah fans is laughable.

The week of the big "rivalry" game with Colorado, and you're still fixated on a meaningless game against an "irrelevent" independent way back in early September?


Welcome back to the 80's, when BYU was Utah's bowl game.

I don't ever recall saying BYU was an "irrelevent" independent. Please don't mis-quote or put words in my mouth. Just pointing out that as far as the Utah-BYU debate goes, we beat you, this year, on the field, fair and square. That's where it counts in my book!

Again, have a great Thanksgiving!

I distinctly remember Utah fans being proud of Utah for competing with the Trojans in the Coliseum and having a chance to win late in the game. I don't remember any celebrating or being satisfied with the loss.

You are missing my point in regard to the history. It is a double standard to deny Utah's last decade, even if it is shorter than BYU's current run. Whatever else Utah did in its entire history before that is completely irrelevant in this context.

Even more importantly, In the modern era Utah has shown the ability to get to, and win, on the next level. Even if BYU finished ranked more consistently, they have less hardware to show for it.

"Doesn't look like a time machine to me."
