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 UteThere 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
@2ferThe 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.
Great opportunities for improvement!
2ferUtah 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.
