Is it me, or is Chris B and Duckhunter the same Junior High troll? Consider the similarities:

Chris B
"We talk about BYU all the time; we talk about what we could do at BYU and how we can win a National Championship if we all went there, LOL!”

"BYU has a shot, but many things must fall into place" LOL!”

Duckhunter

“The Stretch Y is cool but I don't much care about how it ranks. I do enjoy the utah "fan" angst over it though. LOL!”

“So steel ute and spokane ute come along and just prove they feel major angst as it oozes from their fingers onto their keyboards. LOL!”

Consider the similarities:
1.They both post on everything UTAH/BYU
2.They both skew facts while ignoring underlying truths
3.They both make outlandish claims to incite responses
4.They both overuse outdated Junior High slang ‘LOL’

The same person? Twin sons of different mothers? Twin daughters? Both listen to Bieber . . .?

Why do the mods let trolls like Ducky through, meanwhile filter out comments constantly that are not offensive and on topic?

They may be big but they are slow and will tire easily as the competition runs circles around them. By the 2nd half of the game they will be sucking wind on the bench while teams march up and town the field to the end zone.
Mark it down - Utah will finish either 3-8 or 4-8 at best.

5-7 is the definition of losers, sorry to have to lend some reality to the utah "fan" delusion fest but by definition a 5-7 team are losers.

This is also the definition of losers:

Utah 24 BYU 21
Utah 54 BYU 10 ... this is actually a definition of being punked on your own turf
Utah 17 BYU 16

Nice to see that we're building PAC-12 depth at the OL. I've read about the increase in depth at the RB and QB positions as well.

After the last 2 years I'll think it's and wait and see at QB position with Wilson, Cox, and Manning. But I can't recall the last time we had three young talented QBs.

Go Utes! So happy we have depth at O-line and that we don't have byU's PR department

"This is also the definition of losers:

Since we're recounting unforgettable games from our histories The 47-7 TCU throttling of the #5 ranked Utes on national TV "on your own turf" comes to mind.

Bad days can happen to good teams. Of course dropping from #5 to out of the top 25 in only a few weeks made a pretty hefty thud and pretty well solidified that the Utes were never really very good that year in the first place.

When is TCU history "your" history?

Yes we were punked by the #2, undefeated 13-0, team in the nation. I give props to TCU, a legit team.

Since you brought it up, remember when Provo danced in the streets, lit fire works, and celebrated at Provo airport a 1-0 Quest to a #7 ranking?

Yes of course you remember, that was you best team since 1996. What happened in week 3 @LES?

FSU 58
BYU 24

That was the biggest win for FSU that year, only had a winning record because they beat D2 Jacksonville at home 19-9 the week before throttling BYU at LES.

See the difference?

Classic BYU fan fallback: If you cant beat 'em, find somebody who can and deflect to that.

Utah was good enough to go 10-3 and ranked AP/Coaches #26/23 in 2010, just like your 10-3 "good team" in 2011 which was ranked #26/25 .

The difference?

2010 Utah #26/23 lost to AP #2 TCU, #9 Boise in Vegas, and at #33 ND.
2011 BYU #26/25 lost to AP #14 TCU in Cowboy Stadium, at #30 Texas, Utah @LES.
