Funny how Utah wants to keep part of the "rivalry" going. I say good riddance to the Utes. BYU and UVU will team up on more and more things while Utah will team up with their new "rival" Colorado. Good luck with that. UVU is on the rise. They won't reach rivalry status for many years but they make a great partner for projects like a food drive for the needy.

Maybe we should do a food drive during the bowl game this year. I hear San Diego is a great place to visit and it is full of very giving BYU fans. Then Utah could do one during its bowl game. Oh wait...

Bitter much there Orem Parent? I know it hurts Coug pride that Utah has moved on, though it is rather sad that bitterness had impact a charity activity such as this. Enjoy your new rivalry with UVU, New Mexico State and Idaho (WAC, Independent, Independent). We'll enjoy the PAC 12 . Cheers.

Time to tone down the smack talk on BYU's opponents. Just to help you remember who Utah is playing:

Willamette
Sacramento State (lost that one didn't you?)
Idaho State
Central Michigan
Wright State
Texas State.

And when it comes to football, you might want to wait until Utah has a winning record before you brag about your schedule.

Guess BYU got tired of getting crushed by Utah in the food drive the last several years.

This is a shame because it brought in *tons* of food. I seriously doubt if the replacements will do as well, but good luck to them!

Charity doesn't need to be connected to any school. And the fact that one could use the rivalry for marketing or fodder to inspirte a larger donation is just what the rivalry was: juvenile at best.
