Congratulations Cougars for having an easy enough schedule to make a bowl
game.You beat Texas, but lost to Wisconsin and ND.Lost
to horrible Virginia and Utah.Good thing played other bad teams, so
that could go bowling.
Uncle Rico..When was the last time Utah beat Boise State? Maybe that's why
Utah isn't going bowling!
RE: Rico"Congratulations Cougars for having an easy enough
schedule to make a bowl game."You've got to love the sour
grapes coming from little brother. BYU's schedule was ranked #37th in the
country (better than Utah's 2nd best schedule in program history). You're probably right though. SOS is probably more important than
actually winning games... that and being a cellar dweller in a top conference,
of course. I think Utah should be playing in a BCS bowl this season instead of
all those crappy teams with schedules weaker than BYU's (which is 6 of the
8 BCS bowl teams). Michigan State #56Stanford #4Baylor
#61UCF #91Alabama #46Oklahoma #44Clemson #53Ohio
State #57Florida State #63Auburn #20
Hope that Coach can keep the kids focused on football enough to win the game.
Bowl games are tricky with all of the other other distractions and routine
changes that come with not having a stack of homework to worry about before and
after the game. Easy for young men to forget what it takes to win in this
situation. Utah, well they get a few more months to worry about something other
than football. BYU still has some football worry about. Hope the team plays like
they are capable, lots of capability, too many times we have seen less than

Uncle Rico makes a comment about BYU's strength of schedule and seems to
not see that 8 of BYU's 12 opponents are playing in a bowl game. He is
trying to make himself feel better about Utah sitting at home for the second
straight year. He points out that BYU had terrible losses to Virginia and Utah.
His strength of schedule argument sounds like what Utah fans love to call
"Poppinga victories". Perhaps he should concentrate on who
Whittingham will hire at the conclusion of next season to be the latest
offensive coordinator. That is assuming that Whittingham will be back as the
coach after missing a bowl game for yet another year.

Uncle Rico, "lost to horrible Virginia and Utah"I
wouldn't say that Utah is horrible - just not very good.
Uncle Rico is just jealous that the Utes weren't good enough get past lowly
6-7 Washington State to qualify for a bowl.4-5, 3-6, 2-7 = 9-18
overall in the PAC; it's quite obvious that the Utes are nothing but cannon
fodder for the big boys of PAC to pad their conference win totals.Enjoy the couch potato bowl.
Dr. Hill and K Whitt's favorite song: "I'll Be Home for
"That will be followed by a team visit to Alcatraz."What is
their obsession with spending time in prisons?
Utah isn't horrible at all. In 2013 they own BYU in multiple sports. As
for football, they owned BYU for the past 4 years. Yes, BYU is going bowling,
but I am sure there are many seniors on the team who would have loved to say
they beat the U at least once...don'tcha think? I know I would.
IrieUteLOL at your feeble smack. Alcatraz is a tourist
attraction that hasn't been used as a prison since 1963.Uncle
Rico"Congratulations Cougars for having an easy enough schedule

Sagarin)2013 Utah(5-7) #32004 BYU(5-6) #112003 BYU(4-8) #142013 BYU(8-4) #372012 Utah(5-7) #411999 BYU(8-4) #45Bottom line: BYU had a tougher schedule this year, than Utah had last year. If
Utah had beaten Oregon State(6-6), Arizona(7-5), and/or Washington St(6-7), the
Utes would have gone bowling, so stop blaming your 2nd straight bowl-less season
on your schedule.
Pavalova: OF course you would, because you are obsessed with BYU. I think our
seniors would rather say they went 4-0 in bowl games than to worry about how
they did against the utes. But thanks for your concern.
Oh, golly gee. All of you have a very merry Christmas!
PavalovaJust like the 80's, BYU has once again become
Utah's bowl game.However, I'm guessing there are many Ute
seniors who would have loved to play their junior and senior year bowl games in
December rather than September.The Hunger Bowl will be BYU's
9th consecutive bowl game (2005 to 2013), matching Utah's longest bowl
string (2003 to 2011), but far short of BYU's longest bowl string of 17
consecutive bowls (1978 to 1994), which is as many consecutive bowls as Utah has
Uncle, that is FUNNY!!! Utah beat Weber State, Utah State and BYU
and STILL couldn't get to a bowl game. Was it the PAC 12 schedule? When
they played Washington State and Colorado they should have won just one more
game besides the Stanford fluke, but they couldn't handle Arizona.
Bwa-ha-ha-ha. Face it, Utah wasn't very good, just like last year, and the
year they had a greased schedule to the First Pac 12 Championship Game they had
all the stars line up and then promptly lost to the worst road team in America
in SLC when Norm Chow was the OC. Talk about laying an egg......Enjoy the bowl season from your sofa,.....yet again!! Get used to it,
that's what you wanted....PAC 12 games and lose rather than easier games
and win and go bowling. Smiles to you!!
I AM a BYU fan and it makes me sick this team can generate enough emotion and
fire to beat the U...four years running. Don't kid yourself if you think
losing to the U annually is good enough even though we go to a weak bowl. The
season would be much more fulfilling to beat the U AND go to a bowl. Just
saying. If you took a straw poll, most Y fans would feel the same way.
Irieute, what is your obsession with articles on BYU?
I'm a Utah season ticket holder going to San Fran on Thursday! (I
wasn't going to mention it, but these dumb posts by Y haters just stuns
me.)Those that can't root for more than one team is missing out
on half the fun.I will be having a lot more fun than some of these
posters this weekend.
@Razzle2Bluffdale, UT"I'm a Utah season ticket holder

that it was a Ute fan (Uncle Rico) that started it all? Funny how you can
selective choose to see only one side of where hate is coming from and then call
them dumb! Enjoy the bowl game!
Razzle2: You've got character and style! Love it.Go Cougars!
