Just so everyone knows WSU also has the same type of football facility and yet they sit at the bottom of the PAC with Utah. Facilities do NOT make a team. Utah will continue to be the cellar dweller in the PAC and will NOT make the coveted Rose Bowl. I agree with a previous comment that the new media room will be great for watching the bowl season in comfort.


And BYU has the same NFL and recruiting talent as the bottom of the PAC-12. Considering Bronco has a losing record against BCS teams thankfully BYU doesn't have to deal with playing a PAC-12 schedule.

I guess some people really have to bend, stretch and spin to make a point!

3-0 is miniscule? Tell that to Bronco and the boys! Besides, it is more than 3-0: it is 4-1, 8-3, 13-7, 53-31-4. Two straight decades of superiority and that will only continue! Utah is beating byU on the field and in recruiting. Utah beat byU out for first choice of head coach. And this all was accomplished before our start at improving facilities and after byU finished.

"Bronco was 3-2 versus Utah before the streak"? That makes about as much sense as a Utah fan saying "before 1972 Utah was 41-8-4".

Thanks for stopping by on all things Utah and giving us your support. The fact that you use the mighty Muss as your moniker displays how important Utah is to you. Again, we appreciate your love!

Go Utes! Onward and Upward!

"Not nearly as funny as a Utah fan mocking a miniscule 3-game losing streak (Bronco was 3-2 versus Utah before the streak), while Washington is a team that Utah has NEVER beaten, 0-8 versus the Huskies lifetime; BYU is 4-4 all-time versus Washington"

Not nearly as funny as BYU fans hiding behind other teams to fight there battles against Big Brother Utah. Since BYU can't get the job done themselves. BYU is 0-3 against Boise State and 0-4 against Iowa State all time!

Call us when BYU beats Utah for the first time since 2009!

With this new football center and SLC's Trax system what else could be needed for winning the PAC recruiting war?

"Call us when Utah beats their first PAC team with a winning record."

No, we won't call you because you don't matter. The Utes are in, byu is no where.

It's a weak character who can't find it within him / her to congratulate the accomplishments of another - even if that other person happens to be your rival team. Congrats to the Utes -

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

To Mormon Ute: You said "Please get off the taxpayer subsidy deal! I have a copy of the University of Utah budget which is available to the public and you can plainly see that the $250 million the State of Utah puts into the university from tax dollars is all consumed by academic pursuits. None of it goes to athletics."

Well, Dr. Chris Hill says you are wrong, both in the Deseret News ("Pac 12 Have-nots to become Haves with TV Deal") and in the official UU Magazine Continuum ("The Money Game"). You can also find a list of athletic department subsidies in USA Today, and it is a common topic in the Chronicle of Higher Education.

The new building has obviously received indirect subsidy at the very least. Now, when those huge flatscreens are not big enough or have high enough definition, who will subsidize their replacement?

Why should any BCS team in any state be subsidized when they have billion dollar TV contracts? State legislatures in every state should make sure that at least half that money goes to education, and not bigger flat screen TVs.

I didn't say the University doesn't subsidize athletics, i said there is no tax money spent on athletics. The University of Utah gets most of its revenue from sources other than Utah taxpayers. When you look at the budget for undergraduate academics you can easily see that uses up all of the taxpayer money. The money used to subsidize the athlletic budget is from other sources. A friend of mine confirmed this with the University President.

I didn't know BYU started with Bronco's tenure. I guess I could point to the past 11 years (8-3) or further back, but that would be pointless.
