Why do you guys play in to the troll games? They only troll for attention.
It's like the little kid crying in the store - sure, the crying in
annoying, but if you don't give him attention, the crying stops and his
attention them turns to the bright, shiny objects in the check-out stand!!Go Utes!!
@arm of orionI'll try once again. The schedule being
"good" and the schedule being "hard" may be considered one and
the same although based on the utah record I don't know that everyone would
agree with you. It is the utah "fans" trying to use it as both a means
to laud their team and as an excuse for their teams poor performance that is
hypocritical and funny.If you are going to brag about your strength
of schedule, as if that somehow is a compliment to your program, then you cannot
also use it as an excuse for your programs poor performance. SOS doesn't
mean anything as good teams and bad teams have similar SOS every single year.
Actually WINNING is what matters, as the final polls that rank BYU much more
often then they rank utah easily proves.
Duck I know that was your last post but let's clear up some misconceptions
that you have. First you call me a "fan." This implies that I do nothing
but hate on BYU this is simply not true. I will be attending law school at the
Y, my wife is a Y grad and in a week be a U alum. I enjoy the U football program
more than I do the Y sure but I have no reason to hate the Y. By classifying me
as a "fan" you imply that I and others like me are trying to disparage
your program by saying we have a great schedule that also contributes to our
losses. That is not the case. We are using the schedule to point out that the U
is a "good" in a conference filled with good-great teams.I
would also like to point out that your BYU hate discussion was a non-sequitur to
the original point that a hard schedule is a good schedule.
@arm of orionObviously utah "fans' like yourself are not
following a "simple train of logic". let me help you.utah
"fans" like to constantly brag that their schedule is "great" in
an attempt to disparage BYU when comparing the two programs. OK, I don't
agree that it is "great" but it is pretty good. But at the same time
utah "fans" whine that their record is bad because their schedule is
"great". Once again it isn't "great" but it makes for a
convenient excuse for utah "fans" to use to try and justify their teams
poor records the last couple of years. At some point, if utah is
actually all utah "fans" claim it is, then they would need to actually
win some of the games on that "great" schedule. So far they haven't
won ANY of them, they've lost to every pac12 team with a winning record
that they have played. In otherwords if you are going to brag about
how great your schedule is then parhaps you better not try to use it as a crutch
for all the losing that you do.
Duck I don't see why it is impossible for a schedule to be hard without
also being good. In fact it is the difficulty that makes the schedule good. A
hard schedule means exciting close games where the two teams are on par with
each other and making big plays when needed. These exciting games make for good
games. The good games would then make for a good schedule. No irony there nor
any humor. It is a simple train of logic that many Utah fans have, including
@motortrike"not as strong as Utah's"I love
the constant excuses utah "fans" post on here. You guys whine all the
time "our schedule is so hard" and then at the same time try to brag
that "our schedule is so good". It is really funny.
@Ducky"Regardless they will struggle to even reach bowl
eligibility, just like last season."---------As will the Y now
that they're playing a good schedule. Mind you, not as strong as
Utah's but the strongest schedule BYU's ever played.
@kostaI only "care" in that it is fun for me to read the
delusional comments from utah "fans". You realize utah might be no
better than a 3 win team this coming season don't you? I'm not
predicting that but I can easily see that being a possibility. Regardless they
will struggle to even reach bowl eligibility, just like last season.
"I smell Roses!"Which is as close as y "fans" will
ever get to a top-tier bowl game. But the Utes? BTDT.
'Offensive outburst fuels plenty of optimism’:I smell
The obsessively weak zinger attempts from ducky and the klingon are
understandable--they're mad they could see the Utes spring game on P12N and
the y's wasn't on BYUtv.Their pettiness aside, I'm
encouraged. Last year Whit held Star and other defensive stalwarts out of the
spring game and the offense still sputtered. So what I saw this year is very
Why do you care, Duckhunter? Psstttttt your obsession is showing!
"Optimism" huh? I'd say irrational exuberance is a more appropriate
description of what is going on at utah. So the mediocre qb lit it up against
the non starters from what was a mediocre defense last year. Congratulations?
This is all fine and well for a spring football scrimmage. But like the article
said, a big part of those who played will probably never play in the fall. Over
a third of the known defensive starters didn't even suit up. It's fun
to see some big plays, but naive to read too much into it. Things must be kept
in perspective.Even Jake Heaps looked great last week for Kansas, under
the same very limited circumstances. Once the quarterback back can actually be
touched and most of starters are on the field, a much truer picture will be
seen. But in the meantime, it's nice to have something good to smile about
until that actually happens. Optimism is what keeps fans thriving.
CO Ute,Ever been to Mcallen, TX? Let's just give Worf his free
pass to say whatever he wants ... trust me on this one.
Nice game by the offense against a 'base' defense missing some key
players but at least they moved the ball.An as usual Worf has a
negative comment that has nothing to do with the article. Even in Texas he
can't get the U off his mind.
worf:Well, maybe not the Ducks...but the trembling in WACistan has
been sending seismic ripples that have been getting picked up by the Northern
California Earthquake Data Center. So...same story, different chapter in the
Holy War series this past quarter century.
I'm sure Oregon is worried, and scared. Yikes!
