Any idiot can get a ticket to a football game and it was stupid of a fan to run up to the opposing coach and use inappropriate language, however that is just one person and not a representative of the U.

On the flip side, you ignore the inappropriate languague from some of your players after the game. They are representatives of your school and showed, using your sentiment, a real lack of class.

Careful calling the kettle black.

Not representative of the U??? Have you ever been to a BYU - University of Utah football game at RES???

Well said. Same to you, Ted H.

It's been proven time and time again, byu is way better than the utes.

Its amazing how all the Y fans can talk so much crap when both teams are 2-2 on the season, But hey I guess after my team lost 1 game and is no matter what going to the Poinsettia Bowl, I would be a super troll myself and write garbage comments all over Utah's boards. As a loyal Ute fan, I am more than willing to admit we looked AWFUL against ASU. very pathetic showing from a team like Utah. It is time for the coaches to step up and earn their paychecks for the rest of the season. But it is comical how BYU fans come on here thinking Utah is going to get crushed in all their games the rest of the year. Utah will certainly take their licks from other teams this season but the same can be said for BYU, I predict losses against USU, Oregon State, Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, and possibly San Jose State (only because they took Stanford to the wire in their first game of the season). So there is a 6-6 record for BYU and most likely the same record for Utah.

When it all comes down to it, we're more alike than different. That is what makes this a great rivalry. Both BYU and Utah have issues this year. Best of luck to the Utes from here on out and I hope you do win out and shock the world. Hope BYU can also win out which would also shock the world. Just sad it has to end after next year.

@ Ernest T. Bass: Thanks for the laugh. The only thing that byu has proven to Utah time and time again is that they know how to lose.

"Sammyg is the only one who has his head based in reality here. utah "fans" are struggling with the performance of their team on the field and with their comments on the boards."

Funny, I just checked the story on BYU's offensive coordinator and nothing but real Y fans calling for Doman and Roscoe to be fired. No Utes at all. So I check this story again and find mostly Y-ners trying to make fun of Utah. It seems the "reality" for Y "fan" trolls like sammy, ducky, (not)toosmart, etc., is their symbiotic obsession with Utah going 3 in a row and 8 of 11 against their "legacy" "brand".

LOL, indeed!!

You really need to look at the positives. The most glaring one being that as sammyg and I predictied for the better part of a year, and you dishonestly made claims about for just as long, the pac12 network is almost unseeable anywhere so you haven't had to witness the carnage.

Just to set the record state from your previous rant.

I've posted a couple comments on BYU stories recently about the QB problem and coaches. So don't think for a moment that I would never comment because I do.

So real "fans" call for the firing of their coaches?

Have you called for Whit's and Johnson's head for this fiasco?


Now the part about "trying to make fun of Utah" really is humiliating to me.

I DO make fun of Utah and I rather enjoy it. Especially after two years of Ute chest pounding about how great they are in their conference, blah, blah, blah.

And here you are lashing out and venting because your team is not so great after losing to USU and now ASU. Frustrated much?

Go blame them, I wasn't on the field. LOL

Utah 24 USC 29

This will be a great game, and I think Utah will have the lead going into the 4th. USC will score with 3 minutes left and miss their 2-point conversion. Utah will have a good, solid drive down inside the 20, but penalties will kill them off.
