in stitches,If you can schedule teams like Buffalo, Chicago State,
and South Florida then I think you can squeeze in USU. I would love to see a
home and home every year between USU, BYU, and Utah. That would be much more
entertaining (and crowd drawing) then these teams they bring in from wherever to
beat up on.
Collin,The only think more hilarious than Banker is your reply to
The Utes won't schedule you because they are rebuilding and in the
"Conference of Champions." Rose probably doesn't want to
lower his SOS by scheduling you.
So any mighty Ute fans want to answer my question as to why your
"mighty" team won't schedule USU in b-ball? Surely you can crush your
"little brother". In fact USU had a hard time getting Rose to
schedule them next year.
BankerWhat does MY team being good have to do with YOUR fans acting
like your team is better than mine or the one down south? Don't hide behind our
skirts. Plenty of us find your yapping annoying too.
Banker,First of all, thank you for so beautifully illustrating my
point about Utah State fans! Secondly, you will notice that plenty
of Utes on here have expressed exactly what I did in regards to you and your
ilk. Finally, I think it's HILARIOUS that your defense is that Utah
is good in football. I don't think anyone (BYU or U of U fans) who have stated
that your ilk are annoying have disputed that! We are saying that YOU act as
though YOU have anything to brag on! That is what is so sad, annoying and funny.
Well, if we're going by history, then the Utes have the best winning percentage
of their bowl games compared to BYU. And I never said Utah State had the best
athletics program, but I can tell you that Utah definitely does. Go
Utes and Aggies!
BankerSorry to burst your bubble, but your statement is too
ridiculous to ignore. Like them or not, BYU has a NC trophy, Heisman trophy,
Davey O'Brien trophies, Outland trophies and plenty of Superbowl rings being
worn by former players to make your statement laughable. Perhaps you
are too young to remember that stretch from 1972 to 1992 when BYU beat Utah all
but twice in football. And since our Head Coach played for BYU, most Ute fans
aren't going to belittle their program. What's YOUR record against them? I mean,
congrats you beat a very uncharacteristically bad BYU team last year (which you
would not have been able to do later in the season), but other than that? Back
up your statement.
Banker Nope, plenty of Ute fans feel that way as well. But you are
right about one thing ... outside of Utah nobody considers you a "little
brother," because outside of Utah nobody thinks of you at all!
In Stitches,Only in the small world of BYU is Utah State considered
a little brother. Utes and Aggies know that BYU is truly the most overrated
college athletics program in Utah history.
DixieAggieIt's not your "little school" that is annoying,
it's the fans who are constantly pounding their chests and screaming for
This is why I love distance running and/or Olympic sports in general. No real
celebrities, just a bunch of guys who are 10x better raw athletes than any of
the guys you see in the NBA, NFL, etc. Most of them don't need to try and prove
it off the field. And really, you've got a beef with Usain Bolt? Please...just
because a country is poor and tiny doesn't mean a whole lot. They don't have a
boob-tube to distract them from sprinting, so of course they're better at it
than anyone else. Besides, I'm pretty sure they can't even afford steroids.
Same deal with Kenya in the marathon. We Americans are too busy
sitting on our fat butts eating cheetos and watching some halfway athletic tall
and/or big guys hopped up on 'roids and testosterone trying to prove they're
something because they can do tricks with a ball to actually get off our duffs
and do something that takes REAL work and REAL physical prowess.
DixieAggieNope, you guys are little brothers (with delusions of
I love to hear Ute fans calling out USU fans. If we are "nipping at your
heals" then why won't you put us on your b-ball schedule? Surely you will
have no problem squashing us.
Wow. I'm pretty surprised that USU, a "little school", could garner
so much griping attention. Utah State is a great school and definitely one of
the best in the state. Commentators calling USU "little brother" are
more likely the ones need more growing up to do.
When you live and work in a small market like Salt Lake and realize you could
never make it in the big city like New York or LA (ask Gordon Monson), it is
easy to hate the teams from those cities. Otherwise, pretty entertaining
artcile. Note to Des News: Don't pull my comment when he fired the first shot.
I resent being scared that I could get fined if I say something honest about
the nba making apologies for blown calls at the end of playoff games, when it is
a fact they have refs who have fixed games a fact that has been brushed under
the rug, and yet the league continues to trot out there the worst referring
imaginable. Watching an out of position referee make an important call then
seeing the refs huddle like the three stooges and keep the call anyway even
though it is the wrong call...
Good list and funny column, Doug.Other candidates?Dennis
RodmanReggie BushLatrell Sprewel
You left off your list our FAVORITE NBA player to HATE - Derek "let me out
of my contract please" Fisher.
Spike Lee and Jack Nicholson are almost as annoying as Ute fans.
How about classless USU fans who dream to beat BYU in any sport? They are as
bad as Iowa State fans who dream to beat Nebraska at anything. I love those
little schools no one cares about who have the classic little brother syndrome.
They are so ANNOYING. Grow up kids! I for one am intrigued by
Miami. Who else has thought to bring 3 super stars together to try to win a
championship? I think it's an awesome idea. They have the talent to do it,
even if it takes a few years. I want Miami to win the East. Actually, remember
how Boston brought together Pierce, Allen, and Garnett? I don't remember people
crying about that situation. For me, it's fun to see people get so
riled up about sports. I'll say I have teams I don't care for, but I learn to
control my hate. Why spend your life hating? Seems like a waste of a life if
you ask me. It's fun to see how so many people follow others in starting to
hate a team. People are so shallow and clueless, and it's hilarious to watch!
How bout that Boozer in chitown...what a playoff twit.
Well, in an effort to bring some positivity here, I wouldn't mind seeing the
Mavs do well. I despide Kidd, but Dirk is probably my favorite non-Jazz player
in the NBA. He's big, tough, and almost always healthy. He competes hard and
physical on the court, but seems like a humble guy off it. I've never understood
the flack he gets from the media. The guy is one of the few that I actually
I vote MiP's 1:57pm post, best post of the day.
I still hold a grudge to Michael Jordan's little league coach.Why?If he would have had better fundamentals in baseball he might
have stayed with that sport from 1994 on. That way he would have never returned
to the Bulls, thus giving the Jazz the championships in 1997 and 1998. Oh, and Boston fans.
A certain University with 3 head basketball coaches. Guess where all that new
Pac money is going? ... I guess they can hire and fire a couple of more now!
Want to find class? Go to RES with a BYU shirt on at a ute game. Then do the
reverse at LES. The difference? Priceless.
BCS loving hypocrites who will now defend to the death the monopoly they
despised a year ago. You know who you are!
The Utah "fans" who last year said they were glad to leave BYU in
their rear-view mirror, but still can't quit obsessing and trolling every single
How about throwing rotten fruit at Kyle in RES when he played for BYU?
Classless San Diego State fans who (in their desire to be relevant -- "The
SHOW") constantly display poor sportsmanship instead.
Aggie fans who think they are great. Let's face it, if there was actually
something to do in Logan, most of your fans wouldn't even show up. Stop talking smack!
Hypocritical "fans" who hated the BCS last year but are in love with
it this year. Way to stand for your "convictions"!
San Diego State fans! Hands down are the worst.
San Diego fans: you can ALWAYS count on them to be classless crybabies.
How about Aggie fans who act like they are the dominant team in Utah while
constantly yapping at U of U's and BYU's ankles? Give me a break!!! Medium duck in a tiny a pond.
Every single sports organization in the state of Texas. "The lone star
state", more like the "lone likable team state".
How about the utah cheerleader who beat up the byu fan and later transfered TO
byu to finish his degree...
"How about the BYU fan getting beaten up by the Utah cheerleader?"Dude that's really not something to brag about, better to let that one
fade into history!!
How about both the U and BYU fans and their ongoing never ending annoying
struggle to nowhere.
How about people who have nothing better to do than complain?
How about the BYU fan getting beaten up by the Utah cheerleader?
Both Utah and BYU generally have great fans. However, there are duds as fans at
both universities.The difference is that UofU gets stuck with the
drunken dud fans because those types simply can't follow a school that doesn't
believe in drinking. THAT's why the U's fans overall get the bad moniker so
often--the few bad apples spoil the bunch.BYU's dud fans are just
stupid people, not drunks.
How about a coach's son assaulting a fan at Lavell Edwards?
How about assaulting a coaches wife and family at Lavell Edwards?
How about the bottle-throwing Coug fans at Lavell Edwards?
How about rock throwing Ute fans at Rice-Eccles?
I'm a lifelong Ute fan. You do the math....
