    If utah played the y schedule last year, they would have gone 10-2. If the y played Utahs schedule they would have been 3-9. The y schedules enough easy wins so they go to a bowl game.

    @ tajemnica

    Why would they frequent byu articles? They are Utah fans as I'm sure you know. I am sure there are plenty of Utah fans that do the same stuff as duckhunter on byu articles, I think we all just need to remember that the majority of fans for each university are quite sane.

    Little Ducky,

    The difference in you coming here to post about JW going to play in
    Canada, and Maxi going to play there, was that this was a story, a GOOD story about Carl Williams making it at a D1 school. Now if this story had been about JW, then fine. The story that the UTES commented on about Maxi playing in Canada was actually a story written about Maxi playing in Canada. There are bad fans on both sides of the fence, you being one of them who always has to make some disparaging comment. It really must be a thorn in your side to see one of the worst UTE teams in a decade beat your team without their star RB, and a QB who wasn't even D1 quality.

    (Ute) "fans", you have to learn that when your team gets outranked year after year by your rivals, you look foolish to trying to minimize that accomplishment.

    You have to learn the differences between being a legacy and wanting one.

    The inability to win in your conference and going bowl-less is getting embarrassing isn't it?

    Re: Rockwell

    Rockwell:3 in a row is MEANINGLESS, especially when 2 of the 3, and 13 of the last 16 were decided by a touchdown or less in the closing minutes of the game or in overtime.

    You do realize that BYU hasn't beaten Utah by more than a TD since 1996.
    Yes it has been 17 games since this has happened.

    Back in '82 that BYU qb could throw it a mile, or so grandpa tells us.

    May 24, 2013 8:45 p.m.


    Lots of ways to look at things historically so here is another one for you. The BCS was formed in 1998, which a reasonable person could use as a starting point for modern college football. Since then the teams have played 15 time with Utah leading the series with 9 wins to 6. BYU's 6 wins have all been by a TD or less while Utah also has 6 wins by a TD or less PLUS 3 wins by 24 points or more. Utah has 2 BCS bowl wins while BYU has yet to play in a BCS bowl.

    As indicated in my previous post, the Y dominated in the 70's and 80's but both before and after that span, the series tilts in Utah's favor.

    May 24, 2013 6:30 p.m.

    Nice comments by wwookie, Naval Vet, Utefanz, and VegasUte. Naval Vet is dead-on accurate about the byu fans conveniently ignoring the past 20 years---13-7 in Utah's favor. And VegasUte points out that the obsession of byu fans on our articles like this one is indicative of all most of their fan base can think about. (By the way, what is it with your own fan base trashing the Ambrosino kid, like sportsfan's "addition by subtraction," "he wouldn't have played more than a few minutes," etc.)

    Even byu's own AD is obsessed with Utah, as indicated by their conveniently scheduling a bye the week before the Utah game. Haha! Whatever it takes.

Your comments have nothing to do with the story. Sounds like some people need to move past the hurt of three three straight spankings by bid brother and start paying attention to what's going on with their own team.

    Oh that's right, your team is byU - it's too painful to pay attention to that team!! The FACT that you are here only proves that point!! Oh well, you are always welcome to come back and entertain us some more since your own team is too painful to follow!!

    1) If SOS didn't matter than Utah wins a NC in 2008 and Boise wins won in 2006. no team had a better record than either of those teams. Yet neither was even in the NC game. So don't say SOS doesn't matter cause it does. 2) My point isn't Utah is better team regaurdless of record, but that if Utah played the same schedule as BYU the last two years our record would have been better than BYU's. Why do I say that you ask. Because BYU's SOS is so weak in comparison to Utah's. And the Colorado reference would hold some wieght exccept that Utah beat them the following year and BYU can't seem to beat Utah very often. If anything it proves that and inferior team, BYU, can beat a better team, Utah, every once in a while. Which is why BYU has 3 victories in the last 11.

    "PACy WACers"? Remind me again which of our two programs made a bee-line towards the WAC to load up on their weakest teams in order to get bowl eligible? Because last by MY count, ONE of us aligned ourselves with the WAC and played 9 WAC teams over a 2 year span, while the OTHER one played only one. In fact, that "other" team has to go all the way back to 2005 to do in 8-yrs what the aforementioned "WAC"-ish team did in 2: schedule 9 WAC teams.

    Yeah. That's what I thought.

    Next time, don't be so frantic and emotional.

    It's interesting that Utah fans beat their chests every time they beat a ranked team, but try to pretend that they don't care about their own national rankings.

    Obviously, the kids on the hill are forced to pretend that being ranked doesn't matter, because the Utes have hardly ever been ranked.

    When we are talking about the better team between Utah and BYU, first you take the head to head, then the SOS. If you look at the head to head, Utah is dominating, ie 3 of 4, 8 of 11. when you look at the SOS no one can say that BYU SOS is even good. It is very weak. Utah on the other hand has a more difficult SOS in the last few years in comparision. Yes BYU has had a btter record than Utah, but against very weak competition. Utah would have a better record than BYU if they played the same schedule.
    I don't care how many top 25 finishes either team has had in the BCS era, but I do care about BCS Bowl Games and BCS Bowl wins. And Utah has that edge 2 to none. And for you precious National Championship, you would not have gotten it in the BCS era. Utah had the only shot and they didn't even get the oppurtunity. Why? Because of SOS.

    And the Indy-WACers are conveniently ignoring the fact that the no-BCS bowling cougars had been outperformed by their big brother on the field over these past 20-yrs -- which INCLUDED the WAC -- by going 7-13 against us.

    May 24, 2013 6:46 a.m.

    Well said, Two For Flinching. In any rivalry, the statistics that matter most are the most recent games and the entire body of work. Utah has owned byu 3 in a row, 4 of 5, 8 of 11, and overall 56-34-4.

    midpac, you are conveniently leaving out all of the championships the Utes won in the leagues they were a part of prior to the WAC (byu won none). Games and league championships won 30 and 40 years ago are no more relevant now than championships won 70 and 80 years ago. I know that doesn't work in byu's favor. But the bottom line is, the only thing that is relevant is now---the past year or few years.

    A favorite topic byu "fans" like to bring up is Utah's adjustment to the PAC 12 and their record. But they conveniently forget that even during this period of adjustment, the Utes have still defeated byu. byu "fans", you have to learn that when your team is getting owned by your rivals, you look foolish to try to trash them.

    Yes, we all know the cougars carry such fond memories of the WAC. I'm sure that's why you returned to that conference 2-yrs ago. But just because you circled back to the WAC, that doesn't change the fact that Utah retook command of the series...a long tinge ago. Our futility in the WAC obviously didn't carry over to the MWC our the Pac-12.

    The pendulum swung back to Utah 20-yrs ago. How miserable for you.

    CO Ute

    How many of those Utah teams from 1922 to 1964 finished in the AP Top 25; in fact, how many times before 1994, 30 years later, did Utah finish in the AP Top 25.

    The sad truth for Utah is the Utes, with a 30-year head start, were nothing more than a mediocre team beating up on an even more mediocre BYU team that was little more than a club team; 30 of the first 40 games in the series were played on Utah's home field because the Cougars didn't even have their own stadium.

    When BYU finally got serious about football, built their own stadium, and joined with Utah to help create the WAC, Utah was left in the dust.

    Utah won its first WAC championship in 1964. BYU won its first WAC championship in 1965.

    By the time Utah cracked the AP Top 25 for the FIRST time, in 1994, and won its 2nd WAC championship, in 1995, BYU had won EIGHTEEN WAC championships, a National Championship, a Heisman Trophy, and had finished in the AP Top 25 ELEVEN times.

    Since 1962 when the WAC was created, BYU has won 29 of 51.

    So when Utah fans do it, they're "fans". But when you do it you're just having a good time... I'm sorry, but I am pretty sure that is the definition of hypocrisy, sir.

    @ Rockwell

    If you want to see real domination try 41-8-4, including 49-0, 15-0, 35-6, 27-0, 40-7, 20-0, 43-13, 34-7, 43-0, 29-0, 21-6, 43-0, 32-0, 18-0, and 14-0. Go ahead and explain why games played 30 years ago are more relevant today than games played 80 years ago. Also you're lying to yourself if you think the last three years of the rivalry are meaningless. Getting a win this year against Utah is high on the priority list of everybody in BYU's locker room.

    May 23, 2013 10:00 p.m.

    @Rockwell - your revisionist history referencing 19 of 21 ignores that from 1922 to 1964 the teams played 39 times. There were 4 ties during that time leaving 35 other games. Utah won 33 of those 35 games and many of them were blowouts.

    Granted the Y had a great run winning 19 of 21 games back in the 70's and 80'. Of course if you remove those 21 games, Utah leads the remaining all time series by a margin of 54-15-4. Regardless, none of this has anything to do with a great article about a fine young man that happens to play for Utah. Yes the team that leads the all time series by

    It's hilarious that Utah fan have pin all of their hopes and dreams on beating BYU nowadays, since the Utes haven't done diddly in their big boy conference.

    3 in a row is MEANINGLESS, especially when 2 of the 3, and 13 of the last 16 were decided by a touchdown or less in the closing minutes of the game or in overtime.

    I find it to be highly entertaining the length you go to, in order to establish that you're in fact not a fan of either school, yet not only do you relentlessly post comments on threads involving one or both of these two schools, without fail each and every single comment is pro-byu/anti-UTAH.

    This leads me to the obvious--

    Is your sentiment for byu/against UTAH, that you can't even do the dignified/respectable thing and pay tribute to the subject of this particular article, Karl "The Truth" Williams, and what's he's accomplishing in life.

    p.s. As somebody who was born/raised down here in AZ and who grew-up on ASU Football, I've gotten to know a large segment of the USC-fanbase, personally, and not one of them would ever even remotely conceive of coming onto this website, as you yourself do with precision-consistency.

As is typical of fans of both of these universities, facts are ignored and justification is used to make you feel better. My point was to show people like you that you need to look at things from both sides. There are far more supposed 'ute' fans bashing BYU fans than the other way around. Why don't you be a true fan and support your team, win or lose and when you do lose, accept defeat like a man.

    It isn't a "bad thing". For the uneducated, many of the utah "fans" on here made a lot of less than decent comments about how Max hall recently signed with a CFL team. None of the the utah "fans" on here that are upset by my comments about their boy going to the CFL had any problem at all with the dispraging remarks other utah "fans", and some of these outraged "fans" as well, posted in that article.

    I personally have a great time exposing the hypocrisy and double standards of the utah "fans" on these boards. I have just done it again and I did it by copying their comments about Max Hall. It is fun to see how they think it is OK and the truth when it is a utah 'fan" doing the disparaging but they are outraged when a BYU fan returns the favor.

    In otherwords they can dish it out but they cannot take, even when it is an exact situational reversal of something they did first. For instance pocyute had no problems with utah "fans" doing it to max, he is now outraged I'd say it about white.

However, for the ignorant few giving duckhunter a hard time, why don't you read the comments left by other ignorant utah fans following BYU articles. They are far more numerous.

He also has the glorious-memory of kickin' it while witnessing byu incapable of taking advantage of his absence this last season and losing to UTAH, yet again. It's, literally, Groundhog's Day, annually, in this "rivalry", always ending in a victory for THE U. Good times.

    @ Duckhunter

    "he's playing on one of the worst offenss in the NCAA.."

    Funny when a nice story like this ruffles your duck feathers.

    After watchig that horrible offense beat BYU the past three years, and 8 of the last 11, I guess it doesn't take much.

    You continue your obsession with trying tear down everything Utah related. It doesn't seem to matter whether it is the opinion of the fans, or performance of the team.

    I'm curious as to why you and posters like you feel such a visceral need to tear everything down.

    Again, here is a great story about a guy who has worked really hard, earned a schollie, and is in a position to contribute on the team, but all you can do is try to put a negative spin on a great story.

    Or he could "follow in the footsteps" of the more recent tailback at utah and head straight for Canada after graduation.

    Couldn't be happier for Karl about earning that scholarship. After seeing what he did in the spring game I'm very excited to see him play this year and see what he will be able to do with increased touches. Good luck this year to Karl Williams and the rest of the Utes.
    Go Utes!!!

    Karl has the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of our previous bruisers such as J. and M. Anderson, both of which went on to glory in The League.

    Thank you for researching and writing this story.

    Hard work and dedication can open up some amazing opportunities.

    Best wishes to Karl and his young family.

    Awesome special teams player, good blocker, tough runner, but most importantly humble and hardworking. Every team should have room for a Karl Williams.

    What a great story, I just met him at the Layton vs Riverton baseball game the other day. What a great kid. If you follow Ute football this kid always does a great job everytime he gets a chance. Good luck to him and his family. Go Utes

    Good for Karl!

    Hope he gets lots of chances to not only play, but to shine on the "big-time football" stage.

    Go Utes.
