You ought to be a disk jockey. That's the best spin I've ever heard. lol.

Go Utes.



You pretend to be a Utah alum and a converted byu fan as though we true Ute fans should somehow feel ashamed of our school. I'm not sure if you truly are a Utah alum, why you'd start rooting for your rivals, but I guess that is a topic for a different discussion.

Anyway, weak attempt on your part to diminish Utah's domination over your adopted team. You call my claims "deluded", then conveniently omit 3 dominating victories Utah has had over the past 9 years, which are as follows: 52-21, 48-24, and, oh yeah, 54-10 in Provo.

You point out byu's success over Utah during 1972-1991 (what about the previous 4 years prior to 1972?) Or the previous 10, 20 30, even 50 years prior to that?? There was a time when Utah owned byu to the tune of 39-5, according to byu records that does not acknowledge the first 6 games of the rivalry. Yes, that's domination.

So is the current 3 in a row, 4 out of 5, 8 out of 11, and overall 56-34-4, as I said in my previous post.

I was a BYU fan loooong before I was a Utah grad. My father and father-in-law, and many of my uncles, aunts and cousins are also Utah grads, so I've always rooted for Utah, as long as Utah winning didn't adversely affect BYU.

As far as dominance, IF Utah had actually accomplished something of consequence, Utah's head-to-head record versus BYU would be meaningful.

Unfortunately for Utah, BYU's accomplishments since 1964 dwarf anything Utah has accomplished on a national scale during Utah's entire history.

-Yes, we football fans can try to wait until fall, but 25 hours is a valiant effort.

It is very apparent that football season can't get here soon enough.

I think worf would agree, "Resistance Is Futile".

Eagle Mountain, UT

I think the relevant point that everyone here missed is that he left college a year early to be a 7th round draft pick. Good move. That does not bode well for a long NFL career, but it does hurt the utes a lot. LOL
