The difference between the Jazz and the NBA and the Utes and the PAC 12 is that
the NBA puts the local fans first and the PAC 12 puts their liberal ideology
SLC BYU FanNo, this is the PAC 12 and Chris Hill totally
disrespecting half of Utah's fans.
Is this media partners ESPN & FOX way of telling BYU fans this is why they
won't work in even an expanded Big 12?
God is fine with Sunday games!
Utah being forced to play home games on Sunday is simply the result of Chris
Hill being too spineless to stick up for a large segment of Utah's fan
base.The Jazz seldom play home games on Sunday out of respect for
the Miller family who have made it clear to the NBA that they would prefer not
having the Jazz play at home on Sunday so that all Jazz fans can attend home
This problem is not just for the 2 basketball games, Sunday play is very common
for most of the women sports. These poor ladies who, in the past, have had to
work extra hard to win over fans and increase attendance at their games, now
have this even bigger challenge on an almost weekly basis.
This is really a sad situation. Utah basketball has been struggling to get
attendance at their games back to the levels of the glory years. Now they have
to play on Sunday right during the time that most religions in the valley are
holding their weekly services. That really makes a hard choice for people who
want to support the baskeball team but also want to follow their religious
beliefs.I strongly disagree with what Chris B said:"If you aren't willing to support our team 7 days a week, go be fans
somewhere else. We don't need part time fans." You do not
have to give up your religious belief to be a Utah fan or vice versa. Chris B
is flat out wrong. I believe there is room in our lives for our
family and friends, our religious beliefs, and support for many schools and
In Utah's case I would say that beating any top 10 team would justify
storming the court. However, storming the court in the JMHC is just not a good
idea because the stands on the side are so far back from the court and the MUSS
is up on top of a wall behind the basket and visitors bench. It would take
forever to fill the court and it would look terrible.
"If you aren't willing to support our team 7 days a week, go be fans
somewhere else."Tired of being branded disloyal because
you've chosen to serve the Lord of the Sabbath? Join the Cougar Club where
your religious beliefs will always be respected by your fellow fans.
"If you can't support our team 7 days a week, don't call yourself
a true fan."What a sad day to be expected to give up deeply held
religious beliefs in order to be considered a true Utah fan.
@Chris B Have you ever heard the expression " You catch more flys with
honey than vinegar "? Utah needs both LDS and non LDS fans. Why do you want
to belittle those who miss a game for their religious beliefs? Just because
someone misses a game does not make them a lesser fan than yourself.
Nice try Crissy but you may be at the game by yourself. Who wants to see a bad
team play, especially on Sunday?Arizona 73 Utsies 53
Too bad it's on Sunday because it would've had higher attendance on
Saturday. Until the Utes become a top ten program Sunday games are likely to be
poorly attended. The Jazz rarely play Sunday games at home for the simple fact
that many Utahns spend that day at church or with family at home. I don't
see it happening but it'd be nice if they could knock off the Wildcats.Arizona 62Utah 53Does defeating a number 9 team
justify storming the court?
I hope for many Sunday games. Sundays are more open than Saturdays. I hope we
get to the point where Sunday attendance is better than Saturdays. If you
can't support our state school and team whenever they play, you aren't
a true fanI will be there screaming tomorrow. Don't let me down
utes! Lets rock that place!Utah 68Arizona 64Mark
it down. Stormin the court!
Show up fans! If you aren't willing to support our team 7 days a week, go
be fans somewhere else. We don't need part time fans. Don't Mormons
say Sundays are family days? Bring the family and cheer our utes to a top a top
10 victory!I still have total confidence in coach k. He is building
a great foundation. The future of basketball in Utah, is PAC 12
