"Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

Hmmm - four straight losses? Sounds like Bronco and Co don't learn very well!

Go Utes!!

"It's laughable that Utah fans are still so obsessed with BYU"

Says the byU "fan":

- with the Utah mascot as his moniker
- on a Utah story
- about Utah's second half of the season
- that has NOTHING to do with byU

This is just getting too easy.

Thanks for coming by and proving your Ute obsession! We thank you for your support!!

Go Utes!

Onward and Upward!!

Jim McMahon pointing scoreboard was the second of three straight dominating wins over the Utes: 27-0, 56-6, 56-28

btw, I'm not a Utah fan talking about BYU on a Ute article, buddy, LOL!

Go Cougars!

"The natural feeling is that something had to go terribly wrong as opposed to the other team playing better than us," Shaw said. "And they did. They outplayed us. They played better and smarter."

Great win Utes!
No please continue to play harder and smarter! You already did that against the hardest playing, smartest team in the country!

Didnt Utah win the first 3 or 4 in the 1990s. they finished ever for the decade.

Bronco has learned that a single game does not a season make.

Which is probably why Bronco has had two 11-2, Top 15 seasons after starting the season 1-2, while for the Utes it's either undefeated season or bust; usually bust.

Swoop,

"btw, I'm not a Utah fan talking about BYU on a Ute article, buddy, LOL!"

Well duh, neither is anybody on this board. There are some Utah fans responding to a Y troll, however.

Like VegasUte says,

"...the byU "fan":

- about Utah's second half of the season
- that has NOTHING to do with byU"

For Utah's sake, you'd better hope that Utah's football team is more focused on Arizona, than Utah's fanbase appears to be.

It wouldn't be bit surprising to see the Utes resting on the laurels after their big win over Stanford, and forget to show up for Arizona, just like they did versus UNLV in 2007.

Fans don't need to be focused on Arizona... How well the fans know their opposition does not affect the outcome of the game in any way. Fans will be fans, Utah fans own bragging rights over BYU for now, so Utah fans can cram it down BYU fans' throats all they want. Talking smack after beating ones rival is part of being a fan. Is it a little over the top sometimes? sure... When/if BYU fans beat Utah they can talk trash all they want.

talkinsports,

Is it ok if we celebrate the current season? You and you're friends are still celebrating a *win from 30 years ago.

Let's hope the Utes Football Team is focused Arizona, like you are on the Utes.

If they're as focused on AZ as you are on Utah, we'll be just fine.

LOL!

You've stated the Utah fan base's obsession with BYU very well. Beating BYU is the single most important thing for Utah fans. Even a big win over Stanford isn't enough of an accomplishment to be enjoyed on its own. In order to be a worthwhile accomplishment in the eyes of Utedom, it has to be validated by comparing it to BYU's big win over Texas.

Great win against Stanford. Now hopefully there won't be a hangover that cost the Utes the next game. BTW. That win over BYU is looking better as the Cougars have beaten some pretty good teams. Texas, had a huge win last Saturday over #12 Oklahoma. And Georgia Tech is no slouch. Makes the Utes look all the better.

We're going to find out that Stanford is really not all they are being hyped up to be come season's end. Mark that down!

For BYU's sake, you'd better hope the cougars are focused on Houston instead of Utah, as their fanbase appears to be.

@ woop
You have stop with the trash talking. We BYU fans have no right to talk until we can beat the UTES. As of now the Utes have the right to say whatever they want. We have lost 4 years in a row and they are the better team in Utah. You are killing me.

Utes, stay humble and put the win last week in the bag and now its time to look ahead. You gotta back up that win with another win with Arizona. When we beat Texas, I kinda had a feeling that we would lose to Utah and we did. Moral of the story, just be humble and you'll win it!

That explains why he can't accomplish his "Quest".

No, they're studying film and preparing for BYU in 2016.

That's the only game that matters, because that's our Super Bowl. After that big game, we don't care for rest of the season that explains why we have letdowns like winning two BCS bowl games.

You're so right!

* I mean, just notice how RES has been half empty for 22 straight games.

* The season tickets only get sold when BYU is on the schedule.

* Another examples is the MUSS, they didn't even get a penalty for celebrating the Stanford win. Proof that celebrating the BYU win is MORE important to "Utedom" than the win over #5 Stanford.

Facetious, but true.

btw, Stanford is now #13 and falling fast.
