2013 Ute Seniors SWEEP byU 4-0
Ogden, UT

"I don’t really remember anything that happened in the week after the Longhorns game. It’s all a blur"


Repressing tough memories huh?

That completed the second 4-0 SWEEP over byu in the last 15 years.

Guess how many 4-0 sweeps byu has over Utah in the last 15 years?

This guy is comical.(Chris B)
I love this guys attitude about the BYU program.
Everyone have a great day.

4-4 is all you should be worried about crissy.

So glad BYU haters have moved "Onward and Upward" and left BYU articles for us BYU fans to enjoy in peace!!! I guess that is what happens when you suck in your new conference and are in the basement again for the third straight year!!!1-4 and no chance of a winning season unless you can some how sneak Alex Smith or Brian Johnson back into uniform for your last four games!!!Gots to hurt that the team you barely beat is now playing the way you thought and bragged that your team was going to be at this point in the season!!! Already going bowling while you struggle to get eligible!!! I feel your pain!!! RISE UP!!!

Go Cougs!!!

Repressing tough memories huh?

Such as:

AP - #28 BYU, unranked Utah (not a single vote)

Coaches - #30 BYU, unranked Utah (not a single vote)

BCS - #28 BYU, #45 Utah, #78 USU

USA Today - #26 BYU, #57 USU, #59 Utah

CBS Sports - #29 BYU, #46 Utah, #71 USU

Sagarin - #24 BYU, #39 Utah, #41 USU

It's easy to see why you are so obsessed with a quality football program like BYU, especially when your own program has such a pitiful record of finishing in the Top 25.


Hey Sweep Guy,
Seems to me your grasping desperately for some sort of positive aspect to your already dismal season, which continues to slowly circle the drain.

byu is blessed to have at least 6 cupcakes on their schedule every year, I count 8 this year...and they lost to one of them.

Cheyenne, WY

Do you know that BYU schedule is tanked higher than most power conference teams?
So 6-2 is probably the best record against a schedule that tough in Utah.
oh wait it is the only 6-2 record against a top 40 schedule.
Utes only success (in history) were against some of the worst schedules.

Please name the 8 teams you think are cupcakes. And just because they lost to Utah doesn't demean Utah enough to call them a cupcake. Have some respect.

Salt Lake City, UT


Please name the 8 cupcakes you think BYU has on their schedule. Remember, 8 games have already been played and there is evidence to refute you.

You guys should be really thankful you don't have to lose to your rival for another 3 years.

0-4 is bad enough I would imagine

Chris B
Salt Lake City, UT

In byu's toughest schedule ever they have exactly one team currently ranked on their schedule, and Wisconsin in barely ranked.

Meanwhile Utah has #2 undefeated Oregon, top 10 otherwise undefeated Stanford(who we beat), ranked UCLA, ranked ASU

And that schedule will be consistent almost every year.

Just goes to show how tough it is to win in a tough conference

Cheyenne, WY

@ Chris B
Most BYU fans I know don't care about losing to Utah.
They care about 6-2 and 5 straight wins.
What do Utah fans cheer about? Beating BYU or Stanford a while ago.

Salt Lake City, UT


"most Byu fans I know don't care about losing to Utah"


Ya, and Kyle Van Noy didn't really care about beating Utah even though he claimed it was his "Super Bowl"


You want us to believe you don't care about an 0-4 record against your rival the last 4 years.


Enid, OK

@ ekute - Layton, UT - "byu is blessed to have at least 6 cupcakes on their schedule every year, I count 8 this year...and they lost to one of them."


ekute, that light you see waaaaaay out there in the distance is called "reality".

Walk towards it.

Go Cougars!

Cheyenne, WY

I don't care.
The experts that rank teams don't care.
the 6-2 cougs lost to two of the worst 4 teams on their schedule.
that is the sad part.

Cheyenne, WY

You want us to think that being compared to WSU and CU doesnt bother you.
don't worry Gymnastics is coming up.

Mission Viejo, CA

@Chris and others

Do you really think Utah would beat BYU again this year?

Dream on.

Salt Lake City, UT

ekute -
Agreed. Scheduling cupcakes has its dangers - BYU's two losses this year illustrate the point.

Just goes to show how tough it is to win in a tough conference.
A buddy of mine from Oregon was complaining about the same thing.

Why is it, that for the past fifty years, Utah fans have always whined about their tough schedule? Although they did put together two good seasons in the MWC...

That's why the PAC brought in two weak teams.

Still, Chris has to come on second to tout the same old lame trash that he posts 5-10 times on every article.

Chis, how many good quarters did Utah have last seek against SC?

Live in the now, babe...
