Yeah, Utah was competitive... Let's write a Sports Headline about it.
Well it was an entertaining game even if the outcome was not what I wanted. The
inability of the Utes to get a defensive rebound is really killing them every
single game. They play great defense and force the opponent to run the shot
clock down but then somehow forget to box out on the shot and it seems more
often then not give up the offensive rebound and an easy basket. Great defense
coupled with no box outs and little rebounding efford leads to an average to
below average team, which unfortunatly, is where Utah finds themselves at this
point. Good luck on the rest of the season Utes!! I'll be cheering every
With a 40 point Beat-down last year, I can see why Coor's arena was a
"hostile environment"....Oh wait, the Buffs were the ones who did the
beating, well then it is no wonder they were hostile! They wanted revenge!
Something tells me that they were not too hostile nor were they even a little
bit scared that the "Runnin'n utes" were coming to town.I think every ute fan is just praying for the season to end so that they can
then hurry and talk football. Hey, utes how is your vollyball team doing? Oh,
that's right you can't field a team due to all the money that is being
poured into the other sports so that you can dominate the pac 10.2. Keep those
championship trophy's coming boys and girls. Soon you will have to build a
new sports building just to hold all the team and individual accolades.
A worthy rival indeed. I look forward to many great games in this new rivalry.
Chris BHow many times have you been the first poster on any Colorado
Buffaloes article in the Denver Post?The truth is, you don't
even believe your own smack.U talk the talk, but it's
impossible for U to walk the walk in adopting this new make-believe rival of
yours.For proof, look no further than a paucity of comments from
Utah fans prior to the Utah/Colorado game last night, AND, the complete absence
of any return smack from Colorado fans.A make-believe rivalry
JusttheFAX,Big 12 call yet? And they wont.
Another weak showing by both BYU and Utah last night. Yawn!!!
I'll plead for it again - please don't call this team the runnin'
utes. 50 points doesn't justify it.
U may think the Buffs are your rival, but the Buffs still consider the
Cornhuskers as their rival.
@cougintxI don't think any Utah fan considers Colorado as our
rival, that was somewhat pushed upon us when we both joined the PAC12. Mostly
due to geography. Both teams are new to the conference so it makes sense to
pair them up that way.I think most Ute fans will always consider byu
as our true rival. That was a great observation though.Let us know
if you have anymore observations or questions.Go Utes!
@Qwest you said, "I don't think any Utah fan considers Colorado as our
rival..." see your official spokesperson Chris B's comment above.
Another great moral victory for the U and their fans. It'd
really be nice if both the U and the Y could put together a run at the end of
this season.@PoymanIt does seem like a repetitive
headline these days, but I'm just not sure what other headlines could be
used.A for effort, F for outcome. Stumblin' Utes drop
another. What is most frustrating, even for this Y fan is that the
U is one or two players away from turning the corner and being more than a
competitive has been.
