Chris B "we're continuing to improve in a very tough conference."

That's good for a laugh. Please do let us all know how going 4-5 in your first year and 3-6 in your second year is continuing to improve.

Then, update us again after this year.

Only you can describe declining conference wins in multiple consecutive years as continued improvement.

The Chris B. fantasy lives on!

"Only you can describe declining conference wins in multiple consecutive years as continued improvement."

The PAC-12 was significantly improved from '11 to '12, as 2-Star byu knows first-hand having played against Oregon State both seasons and getting absolutely brutally curb-stomped at home during their 2nd game against them.

Furthermore, 2-Star byu lost to The U both years. Can't knock a team your team can't ever beat.

A nice verbal, nothing more. No reason to go jake hypes over him. As duck says, he might just play defense.

So duck does not comment on recruits or "accomplishments" now? Lol

Don't you have to start something before you can continue it?

"The PAC-12 was significantly improved from '11 to '12, as [BYU] knows first-hand having played against Oregon State both seasons and getting absolutely brutally curb-stomped at home during their 2nd game against them."

LOL at your completely distorted description of the BYU-OSU game. Utah was just as "brutally curb-stomped" as OSU.

Go back and review the play-by-play of the BYU game and you'll see that BYU was only down 3 points midway through the 3rd Q and driving to take the lead when a couple of OSU interceptions lead to a couple of easy scores.

What's your excuse for the PACy-WACers losing at home to 10-loss Colorado at home in 2011, and then barely beating 11-loss Colorado on the road in 2012?

The PAC improved a little from 2011 to 2012. It only seemed like significant improve because the Utes were so much worse, as was USC.

LOL at your refusal to acknowledge that 14 pts [on the road, no less] is less than 18 points [at home, no less]. Then look at the respective Box Scores. Then look at how The U gifted OSU 14 of their 21 pts via unforced TOs in front of their own goal-line. Then look at how OSU drove the length of the field precisely once, but not 'til the 2nd Half. I could go on and on about it.

"What's your excuse for the PACy-WACers losing at home to 10-loss Colorado at home in 2011, and then barely beating 11-loss Colorado on the road in 2012?"

What's your excuse for getting utterly destroyed at home, 54-10, and then losing, yet again, to The U in '12?

"The PAC improved a little from 2011 to 2012. It only seemed like significant improve because the Utes were so much worse, as was USC."

All experts rave about The PAC-12's improvement/USC was only worse after Matt Barkley got injured [he played against The U].

"What's your excuse for getting utterly destroyed at home, 54-10..."

7 turnovers, most of them leading to easy scores after an extremely close 1st half.

"and then losing, yet again, to The U in '12?"

A bobbled bad snap scoop and score that gave Utah a gift TD after BYU has moved deep into Utah territory and was threatening to take the lead.

What's your excuse for not going to a bowl because you couldn't beat the only WAC team you played?

What's your excuse for being winless against PAC foes with winning records?

Good work Utes, he could never qualify academically to go anywhere else, especially BYU.

PG #1 FAN, is it worth mentioning that one of the first schools to begin recruiting him was UPenn?

BYU logic: He had offers to Tulane and some other small schools, so he's clearly not any good. Let's completely disregard the offer to Miami who has won many national and conference championsips and has many players in the NFL, and we can disregard his offer to Utah even though they have multiple BCS championships and also have many players in the NFL. (Many more than BYU has) Remember he hasn't even played his senior season yet, I guarantee their are more offers to come, will he still be considered a scrub if suddenly BYU offers him? What if LSU, or Alabama, Or USC were to offer him? Would they suddenly be "No name schools" too?

"7 turnovers, most of them leading to easy scores after an extremely close 1st half."

4 of which were directly caused by The U. Nice try.

"A bobbled bad snap scoop and score that gave Utah a gift TD after BYU has moved deep into Utah territory and was threatening to take the lead."

A bad snap directly forced by The U when they lined-up Star directly over C at Noseguard, utterly terrifying 2-Star byu's C. I witnessed this phenomena, via false-starts, etc., all throughout Star's career [i.e., see USC's All-Everything C, before USC coaches wised-up and gave him assistance].

"What's your excuse for not going to a bowl because you couldn't beat the only WAC team you played?"

What's your excuse for needing multiple WAC teams, as well as Hawaii/Weber State, in order to qualify for a bowl game [against a significantly weaker SOS]?

"What's your excuse for being winless against PAC foes with winning records?"

What's your excuse for being equally winless against "PAC" teams w/winning records [both at home in blowout fashion] , including losing to The U, 54-10?

"Who brought up 1944? I have never seen a Utah fan Brag about 1944..."

Who are you kidding? Utah fans are constantly bragging about their basketball "national championship" that really wasn't.

As far as "being there", Utah fans are constantly citing Utah's overall head-to-head advantage over BYU, despite the fact that most of Utah's wins came in the pre-color television era, before most those Utah fans were born.

"The truth is, the PAC 12 had a down year in 2011 and the Utes were so pathetic that they couldn't beat a 10-loss Colorado team to claim a gift-wrapped PAC south."

Was this during the same season 2-Star byu got annihilated by this "so pathetic" team on their homefield, 54-10?

"In 2012, the PAC simply returned to normal and the Utes were exposed as the bottom dwelling, conference punching bag that objective fans expected the Utes to be when they joined that PAC."

Yet, 2-Star byu has lost both times they played against this "bottom dwelling, conference punching bag", once on their homefield to the tune of 54-10.

Furthermore, 2-Star byu is 2-3 against PAC-12 teams, beating only 2 teams literally finishing at the bottom of the conference standings and getting absolutely brutally curb-stomped on their homefield by the only 2 which finished the season w/a winning record, to the tune of 96-34.

The 5th game was yet another loss to The U.

Next.

canadiancougar624:

I see you missed the Miami offer too. Typical!

IRS Agent:

Glad to see your obsession with all things Ute hasn't diminished! Thanks for your support, we love it!

FAtboy86:

You and your Utah "zealots" are STILL trying to diminish the effect of 0-3 against your big brother by pretending byU's three straight losses never happened?

Sad!

Go Utes!!

"utah even though they have multiple bcs championships".

Really? How come no one else in the entire world has any knowledge of Utah having won even a single "bcs championship" let alone "multiples" of them?
