ThomasJefferson, I am pretty sure we'll have more than 1000 fans there, but I agree, holding the spring game on the same day as the marathon is and has been a terrible idea.

The last two years at Rice-Eccles, it was estimated to be around 10 to 15,000 people in attendance. And I believe it, it took us almost 45 minutes just to get on the field and it was packed. 2008 was the first time I went, and I bet there were only about 1200 people there. Joining the PAC 12 has definitely gotten people more excited about Utah football. The Red-White games are a blast, as well as the other activities. Rain or shine, I'll be there tomorrow!

Wait. How can the U receive the Duel trophy when Duck has told us all year of the great superiority of BYU athletics over the U?

Guess the Cougs were cheated, AGAIN.

54-10,
I'm confused as well, after all isn't byu a legacy program with more fans where millions of kids dream of playing sports, while the U, is just a commuter school where no one dreams of attending outside of salt lake? Isn't all this pac 12 business just bottom feeder wannabe elitism?
Maybe Utah isn't so bad after all eh?

Go Utes!

Just watched the Red-White game on the Pac12 Network! Leaves me excited for this fall! Wilson better bring his A-game cause Schultz has a arm. If the Utes can start 4-0, watch out Rose Bowl!

I love your enthusiam and definately think 4-0 is possible but pump the brakes on the Rose Bowl predictions. If you do not remember, last year we stayed at home for bowl season. There is plenty of room for improvement.
Let's leave the unfounded and undeserved hype where it resides every preseason.... Provo

4-0 would be great, but remember, 3 of those wins won't count for the Rose Bowl. We still have to get past Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, USC, and Arizona St. before we can even THINK of Pasadena.

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! Rose Bowl fever has officially started! 4-0 talk already.

It's going to get fun.

I know, I got excited. I like seeing the Pac12 size and talent coming to fruition on the home team. BTW, congrats to the Utes on winning the Duel Trophy.

One guy on this thread gets excited about the Rose Bowl, and you call that "Rose Bowl fever"? How desperate of you. I know it really stung you to see your team lose 3 in a row, 8 of the last 11, and be on the losing end of a generation gap in the all time series, but you are REALLY having a tough time with it. How marvelous.
