2013 Ute Seniors... Didn't you get the memo? Not every team in the PAC is
BCS caliber. Some would be average WAC competition.But then
everybody who reads your posts knows that you will obfuscate things like that to
make the sun shine a little brighter for the utes.
@vegas ute and stringer bellAnd yet it was Miami fans that orginated
the finger u sign and it was utah "fans" that copied them.
Stringer Bell:In addition, the block U was built on Mount Van Cott
in 1907 - years before Miami was founded. Miami didn't have the split u
logo until 1973, some 7 decades after the block U was built. A little knowledge
goes a long way!Go Utes!
Christine "Nice of the Whittingham's and other u fans to join KISS in a
University of Miami shout out photo op"One university was
founded in 1850 and the other, 75 years later in 1925. In addition, one
school's name actually begins with a "U". Who would you say owns
the right to the "U" shout out? Hint: the one founded in 1850 that
begins with a "U". Nice try.
There is nothing wrong with flashing the U! It is a college sports tradition to
have these types of gestures.You have the Gator Chomp, Hook'em Horns,
Tomahawk Chop, the "L" for Louisville etc.Can you really call
yourself a fan if you don't have some sort of tradition?Are you also
against the 3rd Down Jump?Are you also against naming the student
section?I think there should be a five dollar fine for whining on
these boards, and the best commenter would get the pot. That would be a great
tradition to start...
to Stringer BellLike Band of Brothers and/or Quest for
perfection?to Chris BAgreed. Lets save the silly gang
signs for Michael Irvin, Ray Lewis, & the other misfits from Coral Gables.
It's a big break-out year for Dres! Top of the PAC!Go Utes!!
Mister JI would love to wear flip flops to work - that would be
Mister J - I couldn't agree more. Even as a die hard Ute, I think the
silly U hand sign is ridiculous. I feel like I'm back in Boy Scouts 30
years ago making dumb hand signs at scout camp. I'll scream and yell and
stand all game long, but I refuse to do the embarrassing "U" sign.
Mister J "They are to sports what wearing flip flops to work is."What then would you call T-shirts with boastful slogans or uniforms with
corny names on them?
to Christine B. Hedgefog & positivethinkerRegardless of what is
done in Coral Gables, here, Austin, Eugene, etc... Ridiculous hand gestures such
as these need to stop.They are to sports what wearing flip flops to
I'm excited to watch Orchard again this year. He's a beast.
@Christine B. HedgefogThe University of Miami "Shout Out" is
completely different than the Utes "Shout Out" that uses both hands
joined at the thumbs, with only the 2 index fingers pointing up, with the other
3 fingers pointing down.The University of Miami "Shout Out"
uses one hand (or both) with the index finger and little finger pointing up,
with the 2 middle fingers pointing down. Do a Google search about
this and you will see that what I have posted here is correct information

I am happy that my team can go to bowl games and win them.
Happy that our brothers really think we are prestegous too as we root for them
when they play their bowl games because we have good fun watching them!Go Utes!
@JDFootball Captains are not selected until Fall Camp. Travis will most
likely be voted in one of the Captain positions. PAC 12 Media day is usually
reserved for 1 Offensive and 1 Defensive Senior on the team. Wilson is a Junior
this year. Anderson and Orchard are Seniors, and they are who Coach Whittingham
selected to go with him to Media Days.
Interesting that Travis Wilson is not a captain, hope this means Thompson gets a
real shot, don't get me wrong....I'm a TW fan, but I'm hoping
Thompson is the real deal.So PAC-12 media days are in late July,
when most of college football is meeting, especially teams from major
conferences. That is great planning with the season just a month away. People
are focused on football then and are excited for the upcoming season. Can't
for the life of me understand why Provo would have their media day in the middle
of June? That is odd, really odd, 2.5 months out from the opener odd. Who is
paying attention then? Not many, but at least Coach Bronco had time to get his
blonde highlights in time for the appearance.
PAC 12 media day!Doesn't get old. Happy to be with prestigious
other schools playing in the second best conference in the nation. You don't get better by playing WAC schedules like our two brothers!
