The reason for the negativity is simple. Even after their two undefeated seasons, even after making it into the PAC 12, even after having coaches like Urban Meyer coach their team, Ute fans know they're still second banana to BYU.

There are many Ute fans still bitter about BYU's great QB factory of the 70's, 80's and early 90's and they refuse to let it go.

USU should be favored. They have a more balanced offense and are playing at home. Should be a fun game. BYU's strength (Defense) against USU's strength (Chuckie). Hoping for an EPIC game!
Go Cougars!

Neither team is that good. Utah you say how bad BYU is yet in the last three years they are your best win each year. That's pretty bad. Your in the pac 12 but the B division seeing how the best three teams are in the North division. If you put UCLA, ASU and USC in the north it would be division A and Division Z.

BYU you are headed down look at the roster. There isn't much on defense after the juniors and seniors. Can you really expect to be really good when in a couple of years you only have two legit players William and Kearsley on offense, and Kaufusi on defense.

Quit cutting each other down because it only makes you look worse than you really are.

USU wins tonight. Better Quarterback and better offensive line the rest is close. Both Utes and Cougars might have losing records this year when was the last time that happened.

correct Ironmomo... stang is wrong again.

How was the game last night stang?

I am for renaming RES "Pick City"


Interesting that the Des News is still buying into the miscommunication from the coaches line that caused Taysom's injury. They called the running play and then realized that it was a mistake after the team was set. It was a coaching blunder.

We should easily defeat our little brother Utah State. They don't get as good of recruits as we do.

Go Big Blue!!!

Don't even try to use facts with Strange. He never lets actual facts interfere with his hatred of all things USU.

The difference between BYU fans and Ute fans. We BYU know that our team is not the greatest in the world and we work with what we have. Ute fans think that just because they are in the Pac12 that they are going to be like BYU and win a National Champion.

West Valley, UT

Its all good for Utah to be in the Pac 12, they are the doormat of the league. You know that most teams look past them, because they are looking forward to playing the better team the week after.

@ Tators

Out of concern for Williams, I hope it's not the same team doctor who cleared Riley Nelson to play with a cracked vertebra last year...

That said, here's hoping for a great game and an Aggie win tonight!

Salt Lake City, UT

Aggies have a better team and will hopefully win this one -----


Harrisville, UT

If the utes and aggies were playing this weekend, the aggies would be favored.

'Please stop the negativity! It's absolutely sickening!'

With all sincerity, maybe you should not read the comments.

So who will Bronco fire after tonight??

Maybe all of you consider this to be crazy, but I am not convinced that Utah or Utah State are better than BYU. Each school has their stronger aspects, but one game does not dictate the overall superiority (or lack thereof) when we consider the entire season. The great thing about good in-state rivalries is that either team has a good chance of winning based on emotional control and physical execution. There are way too many trolls on these boards, but I guess that is what is expected after the U lost last night and the only way they feel a little better is if BYU loses as well. I expect BYU to win tomorrow just as I expected them to beat Texas! Some Cougar fans do not have any confidence in the team and should maybe change colors.

Last night and this morning on about three articles on the UU-UCLA game there were lots of BYU fans who gave props to the way Utah played, even though they lost. And yet here on the first page of comments, the first three, and nearly half of the 20 comments are posted by Ute "fans" on an article that does not involve them at all.

You guys talk all the time about BYU's growing irrelevance, but you can't give up the obsession. Max was right.

Or maybe you should stop posting on articles that have nothing to do with you.

You need a different hobby.

Wellsville, UT

This is the one game I cheer for both teams. May the best team win.

Go BYU!!!!!

Go USU!!!!!

Lehi, UT

I can't wait to watch the battle for second best football team in the state. Hopefully it will be an exciting, close game. Good luck to both teams!

Need a tissue? Nothing wrong with a fan liking the Utes and the Aggies and NOT the Cougars. Therefore, I'll post on any article I would like to post on.
