    Is RSL's rank based on attendance numbers or income? Although they probably fall way down the list in both areas. It's definitely not a knock on RSL. It just shows how many club teams there are in the world with good attendance/profit numbers.

    Their rank isn't that bad for a team that didn't exist 6 years ago.

    it's amazing that Real Salt Lake gets such high attendance considering they play no name teams and are the 250th best team in the world. I don't mean that as an insult it's more of a compliment to soccer.

    RE: coachcarter

    Rock, why bash on Utah State? You're a sportswriter in Utah, instead of bashing our local schools, why not be a little more positive and promote college football throughout the state?

    Regarding the BYU victory: A win is a win. If you're going to bash the Ags for winning, regardless of who it's against or what their record is, then what is your preferred alternative?

    Admittedly, the USU program has a long way to go. But anyone can dwell on the negative. I'm confident in our chances to improve under Gary Andersen. With all of the challenges we face, we'll take any D1 victory, learn from it, and advance. Go Aggies.

    utah is 10-2, suu won the great west conference, snow college beat njcaa #6 in the top of the mountain bowl, byu has turned a 1-4 into a 6-6 season, dixie struggled, utah state was up and down, weber was ok as well.

    you sir need to be a little more informed.

    None of the teams in this state are very impressive this year.

    Once again, you failed with this one.

    Hey Chuck Norris,

    No matter how you look at it, the BYU win was a good one for USU. ND rushed the field after beating Utah, which turned out to be an overrated team at the time. There have been bigger wins in South Bend, but it was a win that meant a lot to a struggling ND program.

    And about rushing the field...I was at a BYU/USU in Provo in 1997. BYU was ranked #24 at the time, USU, of course, unranked, with a 2-2 record. BYU wins and the students rush the field. Of all the times I've seen students rush the field, that is the one time that just made no sense at all.

    @ chucknorris, I swear I saw the Utes rush the field after they beat BYU this year. Hmmmm.

    The comment is inaccurate and mean spirit (my original attempt at a post had a banned word here). USU is ranked 84th out of the 120 D1(FBS) teams. If one includes all 730 college football teams in the USA then USU falls to 97th. Grow-up!

    Aggie fans seem to be sensitive today. I am sure the Rock Monster is not a BYU fan, but the fact that the Aggies beat a struggling BYU team and then could not find another victory against another mediocre team does support his remark. I do believe Coach Andersen is the right man to bring the Aggies back.

    Hey Aggies,

    You rushed the field after you beat a 1-4 BYU team...
    That's pretty pathetic, and I'm not even a BYU fan.

    Brad Rock is perfectly correct. Now quit being such babies and continue to be irrelevant.

    Your snide remarks about our Aggies are unbecoming and at the end of the day...scoreboard! Can't wait to beat the kittens in Provo next year.
