The pro-byu, Ute-haters are out in force. It must be sad trying to tear your
former rivals down, knowing that your own team's games have no particular
@Seriously: “Interesting how irrelevant Utah has become on the
national scene and how BYU is garnering more and more national
attention.”I thought I would share this little gem from day
number two of SEC media days from last week, when ESPN analyst Bret McMurphy had
this to say about byu and the other independents regarding the playoff system
starting next year: “Obviously with Notre Dame, you would expect them to
have somebody” (representation on ADs being a part of the selection
committee).” As far as BYU, Army, and Navy-I would be surprised if they
have that representation. I mean, to be quite honest, they’re not going to
be in the running for the National Championship.” That’s
coming from a network that supposedly LOVES all things byu. Seems like
you’re right in byu garnering more national attention-too bad it’s
not the right kind…Looking forward to the slow boys in blue getting
exposed on national television a few more times again this year.
pipes down under,Talk is cheap...Utah is 3-0 vs byu.
Utah might be 0-3 in the state if they scheduled Weber State!
Crissy,It is marked down but completely wrong. I will enjoy the silence
on these posts after Utah goes 0-2 in-state.

It's funny reading all the troller comments. It won't be that funny to
any of them when the Utes sweep the state and they won't have anything to
say until next year, but their silence will be extremely satisfying.
Utah was in the Sun Bowl game in year 1 of the PAC12 era; a game that they won.
The payout for being in that game was ~$2M per team. BYU's payout for BOTH
bowls, combined, was ~$1.1M. Yes, Utah was not in a bowl last year.
Thanks for pointing out the obvious.

relevant about the Utes being in a big boy conference is the 5 or 6 extra
conference wins they provide to their conference foes every year. Maybe you can
be even more relevant this year by contributing 8 or 9 wins to the coat tails
Is it just me or is Kyle still sucking up to the Pac-12 brass? With the comments
that he is giving it doesn't give me the confidence that the Utes belong in
the Pac-12. His comments make me feel like it is a guest membership that needs
to be renewed in a couple of years.
And we already about byu's relevance and how much respect the get from the
5P. lol.Go Utes.
I didn't watch the PAC media day but I did watch the ESPN/PAC segment last
night. There was not mention of anything Utah on the nation's #1 sports
show. Interesting how irrelevant Utah has become on the national scene and how
BYU is garnering more and more national attention.
Agreed. The Utes are irrelevant in their conference. Whit will be gone after
this year and the program will continue to slide just a little deeper into the
Kind of sad that the utes didn't get any respect from their beloved
conference. Reality has set in.
