    “p.s. 8 straight & counting”

    LOL at how you switched sports there

    P.S.
    - 2 straight & counting, including a dominating 15-point win this season
    - 13 of the last 17 (most by double digits)
    - 131-128
    - 14-7 NCAA/NIT tournaments during the Dave Rose era

    - 1,148 days & counting
    since Utah last beat BYU in men’s basketball

    “That’s the EXACT SAME argument that Utah fans whine about BYU fans making in arguing that a 1- to 8-point win oroves there’s “not much disparity” between BYU and Utah in football.

    You’re just so blinded by your BYU hatred that you’re incapable of seeing that it’s the EXACT SAME argument.”

    Actually, what I stated was 100% apropos & you know it.

    Go ahead & prove I’ve contradicted myself.....Quote me.....I bet you can’t do it.

    Go Utes!

    p.s. 8 straight & counting, 13/16, 19/26 & the insurmountable overall record, 61-34-4.

    “A Utah fan doing victory laps to celebrate margin of defeat.”

    Not at all.....A BYU fan brought up UW & their ranking as our top ranked team, first, therefore I made the logical comparison w/the WCC’s top team to show there’s really not much disparity between them.”

    Not at all.....A byu fan brought up UW & their ranking as our top ranked team, first, therefore I made the logical comparison w/the wcc’s top team to show there’s really not much disparity between them, IF any at all.....In fact, I challenge anybody to review UW’s resume this year & their 4 Ls, the fact they returned their top 7-8 players in Hopkins’ 2nd year, & tell me they’re not a rock-solid team, rankings notwithstanding.

    Nice try.

    “There were more fans at the BYU - San Francisco game late Saturday night than at the Utah-Colorado rivalry game Sunday afternoon in the HC.”

    Sorry, but wishful-thinking doesn’t equate to reality.....We clearly had significantly more than 3,005 fans in attendance, in spite of going head-to-head w/the 2 NFL games.

    Nice try.

    Go Utes!

    There were more fans at the BYU - San Francisco game late Saturday night than at the Utah-Colorado rivalry game Sunday afternoon in the HC.

    Don’t even bother with official “attentance” numbers.

    It’s clear from the pictures of Sunday’s game that the HC was practically empty.

    “The Pac12 highest ranked team is Washinton at 38.”

    GU @ home only managed to beat UW by 2-pts on a shot w/half a second remaining in the game.

    How ironic.

    CO Ute - “Conference trash talking from a jealous BYU fan is always good for a laugh.”

    Yawn

    Jealous Utah fans living in denial about how pathetically weak the top of the PAC 12 is...

    is always good for a laugh.

    "The Pac12 highest ranked team is Washinton at 38. It shouldn't be too difficult to climb above .500 in a conference with such tremendous national respect."

    How difficult is it to be in the top half of a 10 team conference (that gets the respect it warrants) when 4 of the members are ranked higher than 150?

    Conference trash talking from a jealous BYU fan is always good for a laugh. Maybe the next posts will be that even if invited, BYU wouldn't go to the PAC 12 because it is so weak.

    Good first half from the Utes but need to play a full 40 minutes. Should never have got back to only a 10 point lead.

    You can just switch to Red, then you will be where you secretly want to be. I totally understand your frustation.

    Likewise, it shouldn't be too difficult to be in the top half of a one-bid low-major conference that gets zero national respect outside of one team.

    National conference rankings continue to indicate, top-to-bottom, our conference commands greater respect than the wcc.

    I’d think byu’s performance in USF’s 3K arena would’ve brought about more humility on your end.....Tsk, tsk.
