    sammyg: "mentioning them here is a little off subject"

    I agree. So explain how other sports came into the discussion in the first place.

    CO Ute

    There is nothing wrong with the truth. It is what it is.

    You're perfectly free to comment about the Red Rocks and Ski team all U want but mentioning them here is a little off subject and expecting anyone else to comment on them and reference them as facts of a 'rising' Ute legacy in overall sports is just a little much. Especially when this article is about golf. Hmmm, 12th place of 12.

    Over the past 10 years it is clear that athletics are trending in different directions. BYU has played and won more NCs than the Utes... a clear indication of who's who in college sports in Utah.

    Leave it to Duck Hunter to find an article on secondary college sports and post another in his long line of negative comments about the U. As is typical the Duck leaves out a few key facts. While BYU did win the Rugby championship and may win the volleyball championship (congratulations to them on both fronts), that is far from defining the direction of the two athletic departments. Seems to me the Red Rocks were in the final group for gymnastics and the U ski team was also in contention for the national title on the last day of the ski competition. Seems to me that those sports are just as significant as Rugby and VB.
    Some of us prefer to take the high road and congratulation the teams when they have significant achievements and some take the Duck Hunter path.

    So instead of celebrating BYU's NC opportunities (of which golf is not one) you chose to take the opportunity to insult the University of Utah.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but is that not the definition of a "fan"?

    The converse is that BYU has not just one, but TWO, sports playing for National Championships tomorrow. Just a small example of the difference between two athletic programs headed in opposite directions.

    Nowhere to go but up. Football and basketball have the same growth potential.

    Utah golf was the headline of the article.

    Obviously Duckhunter hit a nerve by mentioning that finishing last or close to last has become the norm for Utah.

    Interesting that the majority of the article was about BYU track, but all Duckhunter can see is where Utah finished in golf.

    By your own definition, I guess that makes you a BYU "fan"

    12th out of 12 huh? Familiar territory for the after thought on the hill.
