    Come on byu fans, it's getting old. I cannot believe the hatred that you have, again I will tell all of you that were born in the 80's and 90's. Utah and Colorado have always been in the plans. Early as the early 80's when the PAC-8 took in ASU, and AU. It was time for them to move, football has excelled over that period thanks to coach Mac, UM, and Coach Whit. Also during that period the Utes won a number of basketball conference championships and went to at least one sweet 16, one great 8, and one final 4. Plus ONE Nobel Peace Prize award winner.

    It's not just athletics for all these PAC-12 Presidents. Utah and Colorado fit in very well with these other schools. The IVY League of the West. Ten of which are state run institutions. In the long run this oppurtunity we have being Utah Utes along with the other schools in the PAC-12 will benefit the University of Utah much more than any of you y fans will ever understand. And NO your taxes do not pay for athletics at the U.

    A1994, CU was not a "runner-up," they were supposed to be part of what Scott hoped would be a package deal for at least another Big XII school. We were technically the runner-up, but all indications are that CU is the team the conference is "stuck with" and we are the ones making money for the conference going bowling and giving the conference better exposure by winning our out-of-conference games on the road (like 9/17. Too soon?).

    There is no explanation for Colorado. They were a runner-up that Larry Scott hope not to have to call on. They get beat by almost everybody. (Sorry, Ute fans. Too soon?)

    Are you kidding me?
    Utah has to win their bowl game to make the PAC 12 feel good about their decision?
    Please explain Colorado then.
