Well attendance in the hc is spotty at best under ideal circumstances. There might not be anyone at all at this game.

Wait a sec, Ducky, I thought all Utah fans were heathens? Why wouldn't us commandment-breakers be there on a Sunday? Or are you admitting that there are some good LDS people who are *gasp* Utah fans?

Sunday or no, the HC has become a vast sea of empty red chairs. Take away the church-going portion of Utah's fan base, plus Utah's embarrassing give-away fest on Thursday, and Hill might be forced to give away tickets at Pioneer Park just to draw a crowd.

There "are many good LDS people who are Utah fans...", duck wants to be one of them.



Why do you care? It appears that the only reason you post on any article to to find fault with Utah's programs. Please take your negative criticisms elsewhere.

Any true ute will come to the games, be they Saturday Sunday or any other day. If you don't like Sunday games, go be a byu fan

Let me get this right, BYU fans take to this board on a Sunday to bludgeon Utah fans over the head with spiteful, small minded comments about Sunday play? Hypocrisy is a funny thing, I'll see you at the super bowl party next Sunday.

Duckhunter needs to go away, hopefully he takes Chris B with him. Both are very poor reflections of their respective fan bases.

I dont see how Ducky is "bludgeoning" utah fans over Sunday play. He is pointing out, correctly, that there will be many Mormon Utes who wont attend the game because of the Sunday thing.

Disagree? Yes, he's making fun of the average attendance of the last many years, but not the Sunday thing.


well i,m watching the game on tv right now and i dont think there is even 1200 fans there ,and the utes are down by 20 points,the low attendance could be because of the snow storm or because of the sunday game or the utes poor play pick one

I didn't "bludgeon" anyone over Sunday play. The fact is I really don't care if utah plays games on Sunday or not. I made the point, the accurate point, that very few attend games in the hc to begin with and scheduling one on Sunday will make that spares attendence even more sparse. Based on the almost empty hc last night I was proven correct.
