I told why it is like it is and you answered with nonsensical gibberish. Let me try again.

utah "fans' started this, BYU fans are now responding. Whether or not BYU fans are now the bigger posters is not the issue, utah "fans" stated this and are now whining that they are getting the same treatment in return.

Oh and I have never, not one single time, whined about utah "fans" posting their negative comments on BYU articles. Not once. You failed, like always.

The jealousy never stops...nor did we lose to BYU. It's pretty funny, even in our worst season in 12 years, we still beat byU. You can have the rankings; I'll take the Score Board.

Bottom line is a lot of these kids on the hill don't have any problems with dishing it, but they whine like stuck pigs when they're forced to take it. They're getting just a tiny taste of the medicine they've been dishing for years, and they don't like it.

Cry me a river!

Jealous of what? Utah's return to their WAC days where playing BYU was Utah's bowl game. The only difference is now your bowl game is in September.

I'll take the better record, ranking and real bowl game.

NOBODY outside of the Wasatch Front, including your new "friends" in the PAC, even cares about the head-to-head.

Seriously why are people happy we had a hard season? It's kinda sick that people are happy their own state's team lost. I guess that covers up that another team lost to who was it again? San Jose State? Don't be so happy that others are miserable. Let's stay positive and hope for a better year next year. For those whom don't want to stay behind our team, go ahead and root for someone else and give up your season tickets.

"Seriously why are people happy we had a hard season?"

Fans, universally, love seeing programs that have become way too full of themselves given a heaping serving of humble pie.

Utah fans are simply receiving the just desserts of their own over-the-top arrogance.

@ Spokane Ute

Yes, you had a successful season this year because you reached your #1 goal----beat BYU. Even though it was just by inches on a field goal that hit the upright, enjoy telling yourself that this was a good year---"U beat BYU." Repeat several times a quarter during every bowl game, along with two aspirin, and you'll feel much better after any of the many bowl games are over.

Kid, kids, kids ... quit your whining and bickering or I'll stop this car. Oh, sorry my bad ... I thought I was somewhere else.


"The Utesies are a sorry excuse for a football team. If it weren't for John White the 102nd, you would have maybe 2 wins since joining the Pac."

I can't say I have always enjoyed your comments, but I need to credit you on that one. Even as a Ute fan, that comment had an element of truth and it actually made me laugh. Here's hoping my Utes don't have to rely on one player next year the way they've had to rely on JW4 the last two.

Too bad BYU lost in the same weekend or I'd be a little happier :)
Ahh well, here's to hoping for better seasons next year.

You tell me? You are the one who trolls Utah threads and constantly takes shots at the Utes. What's that all about? Like you wouln't be saying boo if BYU actually beat Utah. Yeah, right.

Amen Bro. Nice post and great way to look at it. Every program is entitled to have a stinker season every now and then. It's just something us Ute fans are not used too. I hope Whittingham figures it out. This team should not have lost 7 games. IMO

"utah "fans' started this . . ."

Ducky wonders why he has no credibility here. Just compare that statement to the first two comments posted on this story, shots by two y "fans". It speaks volumes about Ducky's unfamiliarity with facts and truth. So, as to his claim that he's NEVER whined about Utah fans posting disparaging comments on byu stories, I can only resort to well-used ducky-ism:

It's frustrating, but we move past it. The biggest test for our team will be can we look past it or not? As a fan, I can but can the coaches and players and the people that actually matter? I hope we can. Really, I'm just rooting for us to do our best and play to our potential. This season was frustrating because we didn't do that. Let's keep our heads up and move on.

cedar city, UT

I still find it creepy BYU fans are still trolling Utah pages. You honestly have nothing better to do? Go worry about and root for your team. These comment pages would be more fun and probably have more comments if there weren't so many negative people and trolls.

". . . the inexorable downward spiral continues"

Christy B(lue):

Were you also referring to the downward spiral (8-of-11 and 3-in-a-row) of your boys losing to the Utes?

Salt Lake City, Utah


Someday, the kids on the hill will finally figure out that one game does not a season make.

Utah State lost to BYU, but is having their greatest season since the 60's.

BYU lost to Utah, but BYU is still going to a bowl.

Enjoy the couch potato bowl! It's the only bowl that downward spiraling program on the hill will be invited to this year.

Not much difference between the couch potato bowl, toilet bowl, and poinsettia bowl. It must be frustrating to know whether you win 6 games, or 11, you end up in the same bottom feeder bowl.

". . . but BYU is still going to a bowl"


Aren't you proud! You should send Christmas cards to Weber State (Sagarin #174), Idaho (#166) AND New Mexico State (#172) for getting the y over the 6-win hump (maybe--although with Riley, you never know).

Too bad Utah didn't play one more patsie. Then, just like you, I could be watching my team play in a bottom-feeder bowl.

And lest you gloat too much over your win over the Aggies, remember that the Utes DID beat a ranked team, back on September 15. However, that team then sank out of AP sight and haven't resurfaced.


Well i have been reading both these threads for several years now on both the trib and the d news and yes Utah fans did start it by coming on to byu threads and bashing everything byu or anything to do with the lds church well people BOTH schools were founded by the same man Brigham Young ,so Ute fans need to lighten up on the y thread and y fans need to lighten up on the Ute thread,the real person who started all this nonsense was Urban Meyer because of his hatred towards mormons in general, everybody just needs to knock it off,you all sound like 5 year old children
