Ha ha ha! One little comment by Duckhunter and little stadium inferiority complex flares up again.

I thought Hill's comment about filling up the stadium and playing USU was a hilarious.

I thought the purpose of playing Ute football these days was playing 'big boy' football? Not former WAC or MWC foes? LOL

Congrats to USU! You've finally arrived in Uteville. They are tryin' their hardest to fill a stadium for you!

"Congrats to USU! You've finally arrived in Uteville"

Which is what byU wants to do but never will. lol.

What's hilarious is the fact that Ducky & Sammy just can't leave the Utes alone. This smells of major jealousy . The Utes move to the Pac 12 and our domination of them has really affected these two!

Jealous of WHAT? Utah's puny little football stadium that the Utes have decided NOT to expand because they don't have enough money?

Yeah, that's something BYU fans should be enormously jealous of.

"Jealous of WHAT?"

"The Utes move to the Pac 12 and our domination of" byU.

Do a little homework before you post a frantic and emotional comment. lol.

Go Utes.

LOL!

@ekute

I did my homework, chris hill is begging people to please come to the games and saying there is no stadium expansion on the schedule.

LOL!

Since your move to the PAC, U haven't beaten a single PAC 10.2 team with a winning record, U haven't even sniffed the Top 25, you've only been to one bowl game (in El Paso, ugh), you've suffered your first losing season since before Urban, and you've finished with worse records and lower rankings than BYU.

Sorry, nothing to see here worth being jealous about; move on.

But they really, really, want us to be jealous, really, really bad. And besides if they say it enough times they will all believe it. Remember if you believe it then it isn't a lie.

Somewhere Naval Vet is ringing a bell and laughing knowing duckhunter is responding promptly on cue and as programmed.

Seeing you Utesies squirm and twist in denial over the stadium expansion and this beg-a-thon for ticket sales is some of the best entertainment available. I couldn't care less about your 40,000 stadium but most of you Utes are hypersensitive about BYU's 60,000 + stadium.

Hill's comment about USU and ignoring the conference opponents is pretty funny.

And I would be jealous of what?

Little stadium, no expansion, losing conference records for the two supposedly 'premier' mens sports programs, problems with rugby, swimming, only on one satellite network, lost to Colorado, lost to USU, a 14th draft pick vs. #5, not in a Top 25 vs BYU in a Top 25, no bowl game, conference bottom dweller and the list goes on.

Looks to be a trend to me these past 2+ years

And I'm really jealous and bitter about this. Really I am.

Actually I am the one "ringing a bell and laughing" because the VAST majority of responses on this article are from utah "fans" like yourself towards me. On "cue and as programmed".

LOL!

Jealousy and envy consume several Cougar "fans" as confirmed on this article's responses.

Why are we only seeing comments from one of our four little brothers? No comments from our MWC brother or from our Big Sky brothers yet we see many comments from our Indy 1.4 little brother "fans"that were left behind by the PAC 12. We are truly sorry that you continue to struggle as a mid-major program playing in the Indy 1.4 and WCC. Wish you had been invited to a major conference too. If making negative comments on Utah articles makes you feel better then please continue. I for one never read comments on BYU, USU, SUSU or WSU articles and would never leave a negative comment on one of your articles even if I read one. What a pathetic life that would be.

Go Utes!

Weak...... facts don't support your claim plus exaggerating and capitalizing doesn't make it so.
Your frantic and emotional attempt to re-direct is over-ruled.
Continue to throw stones and bite ankles as you were.

Another reply by a utah "fan". "On cue and as programmed".

According to the ticket office, all Season tickets will be gone as the waiting list for tickets is long. The problem has to do with costs. It used to be a bargain to attend the games. This year we have 7 home games. My donation continues to climb to keep up with other PAC 12 schools. This year I paid an $800 donation plus $55 per ticket. The economy has hurt many fans the past 5 years and many will look at tickets versus paying a bill and some will have no choice. Still the demand is strong as many of the people moving into our state are from the west coast and are adopting Utah as their team and the fence sitters that used to attend BYU games are apparently coming to RES as fans are looking for better opponents and better value for their dollar.

RES will be sold out before the season starts. I believe Dr. Hill is looking to increase the demand and creating a larger waiting list so once the time for expansion occurs, the demand will be there.
