"Wow. Did you really post that comment believing it was a logical
zinger?"Surf:Yes. The cougs proclaimed their t-shirt
"quest" before the 2008 season, then had to watch as the Utes went out
and actually did it.Not one for obvious irony, eh?
@JohnInSLC "..The Utes wait until after they've done it, not before. Or
don't you remember "Quest For Perfection?"Wow. Did you
really post that comment believing it was a logical zinger?Why
don't you go look up the word "Quest". It has nothing to do with
something that has already been accomplished.
@ Two For Flinching - Salt Lake City, UT "Houston you have a problem" is
not creative, nor is it funny."I disagree. I think it is both
creative AND funny.Good luck with your T-shirt company!
"the utes released a shirt proclaiming the victory over Stanford last
season"Surf:The Utes wait until after they've
done it, not before. Or don't you remember "Quest For Perfection"?
For all the mocking going on from the BYU haters, do you guys not know that the
utes released a shirt proclaiming the victory over Stanford last season.
Seriously?I have come to believe it is the preferred method for
proclaiming ute program accomplishments, over and above the DN and SLT.
@ Taysom4Heisman LOL!"Remind me how the utah vs. Colorado game
went last year (Colorado is just as bad as Virginia). That wasn't easy for
the utes"Utah won! Remind me how the byu vs.
Virginia game went last year? (Colorado is just as bad as Virginia according to
you). That game was too hard for the cougs!
If this guy's still in business in a couple of years, let me suggest a
clever t-shirt for the next home game against the Utes:"Oh No,
The fact a T-shirt is being made for the Virginia game is classic! ! LOL!
"notoriously cheap"Mocking bird finally got one right. My
fellow BYU are cheap as they come....
While I admire this fan's spunk, I don't think his business model is
going to work. BYU fans are notoriously cheap. Most of them are still wearing
ratty "1984 National Champions" t-shirts. They don't pony up for a
new shirt every decade, much less one for every game.
You know, that home slate is actually pretty good. Houston and USU are very
good right now. UNLV made a bowl last year. Nevada had an off year last year.
Virginia is payback time. Savannah State is the first and likely last look the
Cougar faithful will get a glimpse of an old SWAC team (all-black Universities).
I consider that game as a special experience. Those programs always have the
most incredible marching bands.
@ Snack PACThere are 65 P5 teams. You are either in (P5) or out
(G5); it's that simple.
Re: Rock On "Houston is a tough game for anyone. So is Utah State. Why
demean them?"Talk to your T-shirt maker, not some on-line
How about "Savahnah Doesn't Smile." People in Provo thought that
movie was the next Gone With the Wind! I think it's brilliant. Royalties in
care of Xert please.
2ferBYU isn't in either, and since they don't have a
scheduling agreement with a conference, like Notre Dame, there is no "de
facto" designation for BYU. As an LA Times sportswriter said earlier, BYU is
somewhere in the middle, neither a P5, nor a G5, or whatever.
@ No playoff for UActually they're called G5 (group of 5)
teams. BYU is a de facto G5 team, just as ND is a de facto P5 team. But what
do I know, apparently I need to "stay up"
Seems like there is a lot of time spend on tee shirts most years. Anyone still
have the 'Quest for Perfection'?
Got my order in! Awesome idea guys. Now...the rest of you. Quit
yakking about the schedule & order your shirts.
2ferSince there's no longer any such thing as a
"major", they're now called P5s, there's no longer any such
thing as a "mid-major", they're simply called non-P5s.Try to stay up.It's gotta be tough being the only non-P5, in
a P5 conference.
Have you guys ever heard of a joke or having fun? The shirt is just taking a
dumb jab at an opposing team. It's not insulting anyone's mother or
religion, so let's all just settle down. It's no different than what a
lot of signs say at games. It's not predicting a win, either. I love
football and I'm as passionate as anyone about it, but let's remember
this is a GAME. We are a society of political correctness and forced apologies,
and are way too tightly wound and easily offended as it is these days.
@ Taysom4HeismanBYU's isn't a terrible mid-major. It is a
very good mid-major program, and I think the home slate is composed of teams who
are (mostly) below BYU's level.
@Uncle Rico"All BYU home games are just that, very easy
games."You're right, those will be easy games for BYU.
Thanks for complimenting the talent of our football team. Even though
you're trying to smack down our schedule, you are also complimenting our
team. If we were as much of a terrible mid-major as utah fans would like to
think, these wouldn't be "very easy games".Remind me
how the utah vs. USU game went last year. That wasn't easy for the utes.
But it will be for BYU, according to your comment.Remind me how the
utah vs. Colorado game went last year (Colorado is just as bad as Virginia).
That wasn't easy for the utes. But Virginia will be easy for BYU, according
to your comment.So you claim that the games that were hard for utah
will be easy for BYU. To me that says one thing: BYU is better. Your comment has
Sorry Cats, this 74 year old thinks the shirts are a good deal. Just ordered
the season's worth so I'll have the requested color to wear.
Personally, I do not think they are offensive, nor intended to be. Just some
cleaver play with words. If someone, besides yourself, takes offense,
they'll get over it.
Ok lets get this thread going. I wonder what one would say if TTDs was playing
Utah next week? come on cougar fans lets see what you would want on the t
"Houston you have a problem" is not creative, nor is it funny.
Rico... while you are right about 3 of the teams BYU plays, become original
instead of trolling. Tiresome. Why the Deseret News keeps allowing such
nonsensical letters is amazing... they only keep legitimate readers from staying
on line to read this nothingness. You are demeaing some good teams with your
sweeping generalizations.Houston is a tough game for anyone. So is
Utah State. Why demean them? UNLV and Reno are typical MWC fare. Virginia should
be about the same as Georgia Tech, but they are P5 schools and that makes
beating them very important. As for Savannah State... it was either Utah or SVS
and SVS had the guts to play BYU while the U chickened out.
I don't like these kinds of shirts. We should only be wearing shirts that
support the Cougars and not those that are negative toward other schools. I
have seen some incredibly tacky anti-BYU shirts at Utah State when BYU played
them. These shirts were really immature. Quite honestly, I was embarrassed for
the people who were wearing them. I wouldn't want us to do something
similar. All it does is make people think we are insecure,
classless and have a chip on our shoulder. I would hope we are better than that
and would to refuse wear shirts that denigrate other schools.We can
be great fans and support our Cougars While only wearing shirts that are
positive toward BYU.
Should have just had 1 t-shirt for all the home games:A picture of a piece
of cake.All BYU home games are just that, very easy games.
