After reading his wildly amusing "owned" comments here, I remembered
jimmiedeester proclaimed on another article:"No I'm not a coug
fan. I'm actually a Weber State alum, and I'm not even local to the
state of utah. I have no horse in this race"Methinks he protest
too much. But keep the 'false flag' flying--the entertainment value
@Jimmydeester......."wallbangerdont try to spout off ute
accomplishments. we are talking straight up BYU vs Utah basketball. BYU has
beaten utah by more games, and has beaten them soundly by more points. BYU owns
Utah in basketball."Just as Utah completely owns the mighty
cougies in Football, right Jimmydeester?
Jimmy:I proved you wrong with your “owning” comment! The
series is pretty much even where it is. Then you resort to “byu has beaten
Utah by more points”. WOW! I provided actual stats. I’d like to see
you provide one where in all of the cougs wins, how many were “beaten them
soundly by more points.”? Does byu have a slight edge in the series? Yes!
Are they the complete “dominant” or “owning” team. No!
Either way, should be a good game Saturday.

JimmyDeester:“BYU owns the little school on the hill in
basketball.”Oh really? So with the series being at 125-128,
byu being up on the Utes a measly three games is “owning”? Okay
then!Is “owning” also the cougs ZERO final four appearances
compared to the Utes 4? Or the cougs 3 trips to the ‘Elite Eight’
compared to the Utes 6? Or maybe the Utes’ ‘Sweet Sixteen’
appearances being at 16, campared to the cougs, a whopping 7? Not to mention,
Utah’s 1944 championship. I guess that’s “owning” in
basketball? A little research is fun comparing stats and history, isn’t
it? But I’d say, the cougs aren’t owning anything, except defective
life vests that probably won’t save them from the ‘Indy
Y'all know we are talking about basketball here right? Sure byu has closely
lost a few matches these recent years, but in general, BYU owns the little
school on the hill in basketball.
"I cannot figure out why the media insists on calling everything between the
Utes and the Y 'rivalry'. For most fans, it is merely a game."First of all the media wants to create a frenzy and sell stories,
it's always a fierce rivalry no matter what - yet to their credit the teams
usually make it a great game.Second, there are a lot of fans who
don't look at the game, they are the really vocal minority who are looking
to prove something through the game that has nothing to do with the game - and
as much as I disagree with their injection of non-sports emotion into sports, it
does fuel a huge rivalry aspect.
Stringer,"resume builder"? Are you confusing football with
basketball?If BYU beats the Zags and St, Mary's a few times
they'll go to the tourney, I hope you understand that basketball is unlike
football, even Cinderella has a chance, but that being said the West Coast
conference plays in some small arenas and some small schools, but that's
one tough conference. How did Utah do against Gonzaga last time they
played?Basketball is a pure tournament, you win and you advance,
great model, I know that the Utes wished that football followed the same model
in 2008. No resume needed, you can beat a bunch of nobodies and go to the
tourney, you just need to win once there.Utah faces a few tough PAC
teams from Arizona, I'd say that BYU doesn't face as hard of teams
consistently but getting past Gonzaga and St. Mary's is tough and once in
the NCAA tourney the West Coast teams often surpass the PAC teams while breaking
some hubris, and everybody gets a chance.
Doesn't BYU need to actually beat Utah in recent years for it to be called
I cannot figure out why the media insists on calling everything between the Utes
and the Y 'rivalry'. For most fans, it is merely a game.
tinkerbellDon’t kid yourself.BYU is a better
resume builder for Utah than half of your PAC 12 opponents and most of your OOC
BYU-P’s game against Utah is a “resume builder” for them.
Again, the same cannot be said for Utah. Nothing gained at all by beating them.
So- who’s the “little brother?"
