Hey Zoobs & Yewts poster, you're right BYU had a brief glimpse of descent
perfomances during Crowton's final 3 seasons which all ended with losing
records. Glad that's over with, it wasn't brief enough for us fans. We like our
decent performances much better.
Ah yes, the good old elitist attitude is on display again. You are wrong. Your
inbred bias allows you to live in denial that Utah beating Alabama at the end of
last season and BYU beating Oklahoma at the start of this season, both games
seen nationally of course, has helped keep eveyone outside of Utah fully aware
of who these two teams are. And believe me people in the six AQ conferences care
plenty about us because they don't want us or any other non-AQ school horning in
on their pot of gold.
Ha! Both school have VERY brief glimpses of descent performance, but overall
they are mediocre. Only a very few select programs have consistently been good.
Outside of Utah (and the LDS culture) most people don't even know or care who
either club is. Great rivalry for an insignificant region of a trivial
conference, but nothing that's being discussed on a national stage. Sorry
everybody... that goes for BSU too.
"A win is a win. A loss is a loss. Remember in 08 how Utah only beat New Mexico
13-10 but then absolutely killed a top 5 team in the nation, Alabama."So, let me get this straight. A win is a win when Utah squeaks past New
Mexico, but then Utah fans make a big deal out of killing Alabama?A
loss is a loss when BYU beats Utah two years in a row on late game heroics, but
when Utah smacks BYU last season Utah fans sure made a big deal out of BYU's
loss.Sounds like a convenient double standard to this objective
Ok ok ok. Enuf a'ready. I tire of all the arguing here. Stop it! I have a
suggestion. Have good comments or go away. These comment things seem to attract
mental babies, and the poorest of fans. Bad BYU fans leave the articles about
Utah alone. Bad Ute fans vacate articles about BYU. UNLESS YOU REALLY HAVE
SOMETHING WORTH SAYING!! What do these cheap shots do for any of you?? The rest
of the adults who read the articles are tired of all this. The press editors are
tired of it as well. Leave the cuts for elsewhere, public newspapers are not
where you should empty your bladders. STOP! STOP! STOP! PULEZZE!!
should move to defense or transfer to reno. I hear they aren't bad!
I'll tell you why utah fans think a BCS bowl is the greatest accomplishment ever
and keep bragging about it. It's because they've never won a National
Championship game. If they had then they would change their tune and
see that a BCS bowl that is not for the title is just another bowl game only
with a bigger payout.Louisville is not a good team. And u didn't
play Alabama this year. News to u, right? How about Pitt in 2004? They would
have finished around 6th in the MWC. Just a thought.
Curious,I'll tell you why all the BYU fans keep saying a BCS game is
just another bowl game with a bigger payout: they've never played in a BCS game.
If they had, all of the sudden they would change their tune and it would be
greatest accomplishment of all time. Don't disturb the BYU fans, they still
think it's 1984.Moose on the Loose, please tell us again about that
tough BSU schedule. You call Utah's schedule weak. What do you call Cal Davis,
Bowling Green, Miami of Ohio? Talk about a bunch of weaklings. BSU would do
almost as well scheduling a couple of high school teams. Maybe
Oregon didn't play their best game against Utah, but then again neither did
Louisville or Alabama; do you think that might have something to do with the way
Utah played? Just a thought.
I know. Those same 3 stats really gall utah fans, don't they? It's a thing of
And you zoobie geeks excel at cherry picking the same three stats for evey
argument (most of which are on UTE topics). Here you go (AGAIN)!! We have more
wins than you in: 1 year, 5 years, 10 years, MWC era, 20 years, and EVER.....
Your Hiesman winner had more Picks than your current (nation leading) QB, Your
Doak winner got cut after one year... BY THE LIONS!!! ( I'm a Lion's fan and I
realize what a slap in the face that is!!) Your "National Title" Would have been
more legitimate if they would have flipped a coin to choose who got it..... But
hey!!! There's always ancient history.... Go have your grandpa tell you about
the good old days...
Because a BCS bowl is just another bowl game, only with a bigger payout. If
you're not playing for the BCS title game (i.e., the mythical national
championship game) then it's just another bowl game. There are many bowl games,
some with big payouts and some not so big. But the result of only one bowl game
each year goes on the record books as the title game. If your school had ever
won a National Championship then you would understand this.And if it
was still "the old system"...well, keep dreaming buddy. Utah fans excel at the
"if only" and "coulda shoulda woulda" stuff.
Yeah what a record, too bad the first 60 years of that record consists of utah
beating a very weak BYU program that didn't even take football seriously until
the late 1960's and nearly all of the games were played at utah. That's
something to really brag about. Oh and utah always counts the wins against BY
Academy in their total too just too make themselves feel even more important.
I am curious to know why all you Bougar fans keep telling me a BCS game is just
another bowl gaem with a higher payout. If it is just another bowl game why the
Quest??????? to boot, you all could have had a shot at another NC possibly but
once again you choked in the spotlight. Also pleas realize if it was still the
"old sytem" Utah would have one maybe two NC within 4 years
Did you know that Utah leads BYU in the all-time series at 53-33-4? Since we're
talking history...Also, why are there so many BYU comments on this
article about Jordan Wynn?Did you also know that SMU won a National
Championship in 1982? Probably not. Because nobody outside the SMU fanbase
remembers of cares. Same with the koogies. Per every BYU fan's
instructions, please go to BYU articles to post. Bottom line:
Record Utah vs. BYU 53-33-4. You still have twenty years until you tie.
And BYU has two former QBs with Super Bowls wins. Say, how is your #1 draft pick
alex smith doing? Really tearing it up by now I'll bet? What, no Super Bowls?
Not even starting? What's that sound I hear...oh, it's the 49er's kicking
themselves for wasting a draft pick.
Everybody outside of Utah County knows that the '84 Championship title was
gifted; not earned. You beat NOBODY that year, and just barely.It's
interesting that those zoobies who still pound their chests about backing into
the NC back in '84 can't see that despite the 4th easiest schedule in the
country that year, they still JUST BARELY managed to go undefeated. It's also
interesting that these zoobies can't see that in the entire football playing
history of ybU, that they've NEVER BEEN ABLE TO REPLICATE that undefeated
season. ONLY ONCE in your entire history. The Utes did it twice THIS DECADE
ALONE, and 7 times in their history. Another interesting fact is that despite
all those individual trophies showcased in their display case that they haven't
mustered the TEAM success such as a BCS Bowl win or two.Ha ha!
Bunch of paper tigers.GO UTES!!!
Don't forget that after 110 years the Uties have had only 4 good/great teams and
106 average/mediocre teams.
And did u know that after 110 years BYU has a National Championship, a Heisman
winner, and a Doak Walker winner while utah has none of those things? Oh that's
right utah has two BCS bowl games which have bigger payouts but are still just
Could be the mistake of the century. Once kids redshirt they tend to slack of a
bit in pratice (see the Alex Smith disaster) Keep the freshman QB ready and
hungry to take over the Job. It's the only logical choice.
i think oregon played decent, utah is just a good team, they made them look bad
moose on the loose leads the rankings for idiotic poster, slightly ahead of
Ernest T. Bass.
FYI - Did you know that after five weeks, Max Hall leads the nations in
interceptions?Did you know that after five years, Utah has 2 BCS
wins, and BYU has 0?...sniffle, sniffle.
I couldn't agree with you more.The yewties have had a very cushy
schedule and still bearly pulled out the wins.It would be even worse
had they played my team the BS Broncos. But oh well!Just be happy
that you have won some games and FORGET being ranked..........just watch some of
your Sugar Bowl reruns!!!!!!!!!GO Boise State!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
who is ranked again? tell me that?
"After five weeks, the Utes have yet to pick up a MWC POW honor. The only other
team that hasn't picked up a MWC weekly award is 0-5 New Mexico."I
wonder what the problem is? It's probably because of the officiating, right yoot
fans? I'm going to bust a gut laughing if New Mexico gets one before u do.
You're right, the BYU/FSU game wasn't even close going into the 4th quarter!
All the old hens had already cleared out of LES.FYI - BYU led mighty
USU 21-10 going into the 4th quarter, Utah led that same squad 33-17 going into
the 4th. Having read your comments on these boards before I wouldn't expect you
to comprehend actual stats that completely contradict your pathetic claims.
I second the last two comments. Moose has more than a screw loose. His
babysitter should not let him play on the internet.
If I were the coach I would redshirt Wynn. Yes, it would be nice to put him in
some wildcat formations this year, but is it worth it? Unless your the Miami
Dolphins, your not gonna run the wildcat that much. It also risks Wynn getting
injured and Cain is a Junior. At best he has just one more year. Redshirt Wynn
and let him be the back up next year so he can be the starter for the next two
years. Both of these guys have shown good ability so I'd worry more about the
offensive line than the QB
I'm confused...don't all of our players wear red shirts? I believe the coaches
and many of our fans also wear red shirts.
Wow, that's rich.Even Bronco knows BYU has some of the dumbest fans
in the nation.
What a byu homer. A win is a win. A loss is a loss. Remember in 08 how Utah
only beat New Mexico 13-10 but then absolutely killed a top 5 team in the
nation, Alabama. They were both wins. I guess if you want to compare losses to
#13 Oregon and unranked Florida State, the Utes have the better loss, even
though a loss in never good. I'd rather lose by 7 to the #13 team in the
country then lose by about 4 touchdowns to an unranked team that is now 2-3 on
the year so far. Wouldn't you moose? Be honest about that.
You don't understand why the ute aren't ranked? Guess you haven't watched any of
their games this year then. Every single game has been close halfway through the
4th quarters. Against a very week schedule. Oregon played their worst game this
century and still beat you guys. CSU should be very interesting this week. Watch
it and you'll see why they aren't ranked. . .
Man I don't understand with the numbers being that High why aren't the Utes
I agree, lets get him some opportunities to make plays this week. Why not have
him run some of the wildcat package with Asiata down? It gives another real
throwing option to that formation, and from all reports that's where he can
