    Of course Scott is happy. He was hoping for another school to come in and compete with Colorado and Wash St and give the real schools that matter in the Pac12 some more easy wins each season to help those teams reach bowl eligibility.

    Thanks for complying UTAH. Also a thanks goes out to BYU for playing Utah in the annual BYU Bowl and making it possible for Utah players and coaches to go into their annual post BYU Bowl 4 game swoon afterwards.

    “When you expand, when you take new teams into the conference, you really have to do it with a long-term view. When we looked at Utah, we looked at how compatible they were academically and athletically, and over time we know they’re going to have their share of success.”

    A simple and consistent message from L. Scott and still the byu faithful choose not to hear it. Wow, it's great to be a Ute!!

    Great story, Des News...

    The entire Pac-12 is pleased with the utes. It's always good to have a door mat!

    What does the trophy for the Champion of the State of Utah look like? Where is it going to be displayed in the new building that just opened? 0-2 in your conference and 0-2 outside the state is a lot to crow about!!! Has the SEC called about you changing conferences yet? Did you post any comments on anything about UCLA this week that did not bring up BYU? Onward and upward but never forget about the TDS!!! LOL

    Go BYU beat the Aggies!!!

    SLCSports, It certainly is hard to for utah "fans" to have BYU around. They end up paying a lot more attention to BYU than they do their own team. Bad or good, the focus of ute fans is on BYU football.

    Hopefully Scott met with LDS Church leaders and urged them to drop the football program at BYU. It is such a detrement to the "real" programs in this state in Salt Lake City and Logan.

    I'm quite certain Scott is also happy about who he DIDN'T invite to the PAC 12

    I hope Larry Scott reprimands those refs for some of the calls and no calls tonight. Our d line was getting held all night.

    Laugh all you want cougars, but remember:

    However "bad" we are, you're worse!

    By the way, big 12 call lately?

    Pick 6 for Wilson? That is just a slow Thursday with his decision making. The utes had their shot for a "little brother" division title with the Trojans down. Now my Ducks get to crush them in a few weeks.

    Ya we are

    We just took an undefeated 12 ranked team down to the last play.

    Couldn't be more proud of our players, our coaches, and our conference.

    For all who mock utah's record in the PAC 12 just remember this:

    However "bad" we are, you're worse! We beat you!

    PAC 12 proud!
