No All-Americans? Oh what a shame.

Richard, Richard, Richard - Keeton is on the Heishman List. Who needs All-Americans? And, who received the most NFL opportunities for the coming year out of the Utah teams? You got it Richard, the Aggies. Just bought my 3 season tickets for the games this year. One is for you so you can be the only Aggie hater in the stadium while Chuckie is putting on the SHOW!

I'll take winning in a mid-major over losing in a P5 any day. It seems fairly ironic that you would trash-talk the Mountain West Conference. Your team hasn't done anything noteworthy or relevant since they were members of that conference you love to belittle.

I find it so comical that Utah fans can only brag about conference affiliation. What will the Utah fans have to cheer about for the next 2 years when you won't have wins over byu or a bowl game to look forward to? The future of U is looking bleak to me...

Maybe your 3rd offensive coordinator in 3 years will turn it all around. GOOD LUCK!

I have noticed a correlation with the Utah college football schools. When USU does well the other two have bad seasons. When USU can win away games, the Ute's can't win away games. When USU goes to bowl games and wins the UoU can go to a any bowl games.

I wish Richard would answer but since he won't I guess I'll have to. He's on the preseason Heisman list right? Enough said on that subject. I'm sure Richard will take you up on it. Let me know if he does. Stang08 however is going to have to respectfully decline since I no longer live in Cache Valley. I completely agree with Pac 12 Pride. I'm not a Ute fan but let's face it Utah, BYU and TCU made the original MWC matter. After they departed it became nothing more than the WAC 2.0 and irrelevant.

pac 12 boy must care about the MWC, because he is here posting LOL

utes are a MWC team in the pac11.u

No relevancy in the pac at all

Go Aggies

Some of these comments just give me one more reason to dislike how Utah's fan-base has evolved.

Utah thrived as a mid-major in the Mountain West and they prided themselves on their accomplishments in that league. Now they're a member of the PAC for barely one recruiting cycle and all of a sudden they hate mid-majors and everything that goes with it. Figures.

Well, even as a mid-major, my Ags just last year:

-Nearly won their conference and did win their division
-Won a bowl game against a ranked opponent
-Sent 12 guys to the NFL either as free agents or draft picks

The best part? The Ags were the only team in the state to do all of those things. BYU lost their bowl game and Utah didn't even go to one.

As a bonus, we had the highest TV ratings of all the in-state schools as well (more than double what Utah pulled in, too). And to think we do this with 1/5 of the resources of Utah.

Couldn't be happier with where my Ags are.

I am a fan of all Utah schools, but primarily Utah State. That UoU persons even comment on USU articles is a testament to the growing parity between schools...or growing confidence of USU against growing insecurity of UoU.

Fact is, the UoU is the former champion of the mid major. The mid major is college football's personification of the middle class. Power conferences personify the privileged elite...the too wealthy to fail. The rule-makers.

Since embracing the no-brainer opportunity to join a Power conference, some U fans, with little else to cheer for or say, have chosen to embrace their privileged status in lieu of their team. And in so doing, have become exactly the establishment they once railed against. That is cowardly. USU is (happily) UoU's little brother in every respect: size, funding, geography etc. As such, it deserves UoU support. When UoU stopped playing the Aggies, it reflects the worst of what power conferences represent. Even the SEC states require more loyalty from their flagship schools than that. Shame on the U. Go Aggies.

Finally, BYU fans have found their superior in arrogance and hypocrisy.

All this Pac 12 vs. MWC talk is funny. The Pac 12 went 14-1 against the very lowly MWC last year.

The two conferences couldn't be any farther apart in quality and prestige.

Chris B…so what if the conferences are not the same…PAC 12 isn't the IVY league either. You all about prestige? How about just enjoying good football. How is Utah doing in the PAC 12? As an ASU fan I could say we own Utah, but I don't feel the need to do that.

Chris B talks more about the PAC 12 than his school, because well, that is really all he has to speak about lately.

Note that he must travel to USU and BYU threads for an audience, because UoU articles just don't seem to have the same draw they used to.

U football = Vanderbilt of the PAC12.
