the only time I remember is when I keep reading it. everyone needs to grow up and only talk about the articles, myself included, I seem to get caught up in it too. It is elementary age like to keep saying things like we are better, we have a tougher schedule, we keep beating you, well my dad can beat your dad..... who cares if you beat us 4 in a row, BYU beat utah 11 times in a row. what difference does it make?

"This team has the talent, buy between the offensive line, the horrible play calling, and the QB position, this team has no chance. How depressing."

Personally, I think Erickson has done a terrific job, as did Chow when he was there.

The difference that is makes is we are better than you. We played and scored more points. Utah is better than byu. In fact, your own stars Van Noy and Hoffman will go their entire careers not knowing what its like to beat their rivals.

That's a big deal. As much as byu fans don't like to admit it.

We are better than you.

Van Noy and Hoffmann will finish their careers with better records and higher rankings than Utah in three of their four seasons.

Unfortunately for U, one game does not a season make:

AP - BYU(6-2) #28 BETTER than Utah(4-4) - not a single vote
Coaches - BYU #30 BETTER than Utah - not a single vote
BCS - BYU #28 BETTER than Utah #45
Sagarin - BYU #24 BETTER than Utah #39
Composite - BYU #16 BETTER than Utah #40

Despite Utah's narrow 7-point win in September, it's quite obvious that the only fans who think that Utah is better are those living on the hill.

btw, of the 103 rankings included in the Composite, only two ranked the Utes in the Top 25, the same number that ranked the Utes 70+.

By comparison, 84 ranked BYU in the Top 25, while only one ranked BYU lower than 35th.

Maybe you are right I'm just very, very down on the offense right now. 3 points in 4 quarters kind of speaks for itself. It's really a downer considering how good the defense played. One things for sure, we won't lose this week. Have a good one Guy!

Sooner Ute

Typical Ute homer response thinking that I or anyone else would relish in the injury of a player. Nothing could be further from the truth. Go find my earlier response to Wilson's injury will ya.

Your precious QB chaos is nothing more than a continuation of having NOTHING on the bench IF there is an injury. Whit said earlier this year that he had the talent in reserve.

Where is it?

I guess your coach has a hard time learning some basics about these things and cannot get his head around a simple concept like getting some extra talent now and then.

I guess since the Utes are tanking it's expected that uber sensitive Ute fans are grasping for any narrative to debate.

Feel better?

Yeah, the thought that Hoffman and KVN will have difficulty coping with "we didn't beat the Utes ever" for the rest of their lives is laughable, desperate, childish, boorish, etc.

I'm sure an NFL shrink will know what to do if it ever comes up.

Funny how jealously and obsession of these two great BYU players manifests itself on a Ute article.

"I guess since the Utes are tanking it's expected that uber sensitive Ute fans are grasping for any narrative to debate.

Take a look at this University of Utah article and see how many negative comments are coming from byu fans. It's obvious that after byu loses a game and "tanks" it's season, the only thing that will satisfy the byu "fans" is seeing the Utes fail. What a sad existence it must be since Utah left byu behind. Jealous and frustrated much?

Feel better?

FYI, very rarely do I read byu articles and the only couple of posts I have ever made have been congratulating a player or the team. I would not post a negative comment in a byu thread, ever. I will call out byu fans that post negatively on Utah articles because it is so annoying.

I want all of the teams in Utah to do well including the mid-major programs in Logan and Provo.

The Utes now have their backs against the wall needing to win two of the four games remaining. In a power conference there are no guaranteed wins.

Go Utes!

Springville, UT


Seeing Ute fans call BYU a "mid major" while their own "power conference" team is 1-4 kind of wreaks of sour grapes...

... when BYU is in the Top 30 or better in all of the national polls.

Some cheese with that whine?

Three years is a trend. Utah has to do something to get the win against Arizona State. Snow machines pumping near RES might be the trick!
