I'm a BYU fan, but my daughter loves gymnastics. I've taken her to 6
Red Rocks meets, and zero BYU meets. When it comes to gymnastics Utah is where
it's at. As for other sports...well there's a reason I'm a BYU
SchneeSalt Lake City, UT@My Perspective"Utah was
only ahead by around .2 with two gymnasts left each until Boise had their second
fall on beam.".2 is enough to win the meet. 2.1 pts in
Gymnastics is a huge margin. I don't know why byu is even on the same
floor with with Red Rocks. At any rate, wrapping up the Deseret Duel on 4 of 4
competitions is, in fact, total domination.
Yeah but my Dad can beat up your Dad!
kitty lover"blah, blah, blah...still can't beat the
Utes"Dave Rose is 12-4, 7 of the last 8, versus the Utes.Try stepping out of that crimson bubble once in awhile.
LTKThe Red Rocks (with 10 NCs) are the only decent program on the
hill and even they haven't won a national championship in almost 20 years -
since 1995.Utah's 9 coed-skiing and 1 solo men's skiing
championships are a joke with Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and New Mexico being the
ONLY FBS schools that compete in skiing. When a tiny school like
Denver dominates a sport, and only seven teams - Denver(21), Colorado(18),
Utah(10), Vermont(6), Dartmouth(3), Wyoming(2) and New Mexico(1) - have won
every one of the 60 NCs, it shows just how little competition there is in
skiing.btw, the solo men's skiing championship in 1981 is the
only national championship Utah's men have ever won. The NCAA combined the
men's and women's championships into a single coed championship after
1981.Utah's 1944 NCAA tournament championship was NOT a
national championship. Winning the 2nd best tournament of the day doesn't
win you a national championship. The Helms Athletic Foundation named Army (15-0)
the 1944 national champion.
oops, my mistake 66-0 away from the Marriot Center.
@Y>U@Marked it Downblah, blah, blah...still can't beat the
Utes. I assume that you are referencing the Baskeball championship,
there were no FCS/FBS classifications all schools competed for an invitation.
As far and the Directors Cup goes, when you win it then you can brag about it.
Sexist to boot I am sure that you would argue that women have no
business competing in sports. Should they be home cleaning, sewing, and
cooking?The Lady Utes have defeated the Lady Cougars 64 straight
times away from the Marriot center where the Lady Cougars are 22-2.
Marked, does that make 10>21?
ekute"As far as national scale in women's gymnastics, BYU
is not in the picture."Not true.Although not close
to the level of the Red Rocks, BYU's women's gymnastics program
finished tied for 19th in the 2012-13 season, earning 52.5 points in the
Director's Cup, which places BYU solidly "in the picture" on a
national scale.Talk about not being in the picture. In football, the
minimum standard for earning points in the Director's Cup is playing in a
bowl - sorry to burst your crimson bubble, but September bowls against your
rival don't qualify. The Utes aren't even good enough to qualify for a
"lower-tier" bowl.BYU's men's volleyball program
has won THREE national championships and played in two other national
championship matches since the Red Rocks last won a national championship.
StGtoSLCRemind us how many national championships Utah's men
have won without the help of the Utah's women.Here's a
clue; you can count Utah's men's national championship on ONE finger,
and that in a sport in which only FOUR FBS schools compete.In the
21-year history of the Director's Cup, which measures overall athletic
excellence in all men's and women's sports, the Utes have NEVER
finished ahead of the Cougars.In fact, Utah's best finish, 51st
in 2008-09, isn't even as good as BYU's worst finish, 47th in
2008-09.Current Director's Cup standings:#11 BYU -
265.00 points - W CC, M CC, FBS FB, W Soc, and W VB#79 Utah - 75.00 points
- W Soc and W Vol
As far as national scale in women's gymnastics, byu is not in the picture.
As far as football, I'd rather dominate my rival in they're super bowl
than lose in a prearranged lower tier bowl.
"Total domination for BYU, on a national scale."Yup, to the
tune of 10 all-time NCAA championships. That's way better than UU's 21

Tough to lose Kassandra before the season even began, but good to see that the
Red Rocks seemed to recover fairly well.Also, congratulations to the
University of Utah for sealing a victory in the Deseret First Duel.
"No. 6 Utah, ran away with it at 196.65 points, followed by No. 23 Boise
State at 195.85, BYU at 194.55 and SUU at 192.025."This is not
even close. Congratulations to the Red Rocks and to the University of Utah for
wrapping up the Deseret Duel in the second week of January. Total
domination...well done!! Best wishes to Kassandra Lopez for a quick
and full recovery.
