    So both BYU teams finished in the Top 25,

    Men #8
    Women #25

    while Utah didn’t score a single point,

    yet, according to our angst-filled, jealous little friend on his molehill,

    BYU is the program that isn’t in the “game”.

    LOL 😂 🥴 🤣

    “No matter what Y fans say...........they simply aren't in the "game" in athletics...”

    It’s stupefyingly amazing how ridiculous that claim is

    posted on an article about BYU finishing 8th in the NCAA T&F National Championship meet,

    especially coming a clueless Ute whose school is too cheap to even sponsor a Men’s T&F team.

    No matter what U fans say......Utah is the poster child for a program that isn’t even in the “game”.

    "Go play a round of golf in high humidity/heat pal......ya feel it HUGE!"

    yawn

    Golfers couldn't keep up with those 10,000 meter runners for a single lap...

    and that's an absolute FACT!

    Unlike many golfers, you will NEVER see an obese distance runner.

    Utah-hawaii alum,
    Just wonder how it feels to be owned by a team from an irrelevant conference over the past 20 games?

    I guess that says it all about your mighty utes and the pathetic 12.

    Very unfortunate how the weather favored sprint-heavy rosters.

    I knew it was going to be tough for Clayton Young and Connor Mantz to make a podium finish in the 5K. A 10K in the heat and humidity of Texas takes a lot out of a runner. They did beat a lot of runners who had fresh legs though. I was surprised that Northern Arizona did not make a better showing considering that they won the XC national championship. The fact that BYU only had two qualifiers in the 5K with their pool of talent is indicative of how competitive the 5K field was even though the times were not particularly fast due to the Texas climate.

    No matter how far our BYU-obsessed little brothers sink into denial .........their inferior athletic program simply isn’t capable of challenging BYU’s overall supremacy.

    BYU just added two more Top 25 finishes to an already dominating lead, while the Utes sat helplessly at home as non-participants.

    We appreciate our Utah neighbors for showing up to comment. We know you love us.

    No matter what Y fans say...........they simply aren't in the "game" in athletics or academics. They are a member of the WCC is all. And, the only known school in that irrelevant conference is Gonzaga. Y fans have to accepts facts at some point...........that "fact" is nobody will take BYu due to behavior alone.

    Brushing sparse crumbs of self-professed success falls upon deaf ears these days BYu. And, their owners so know it!!!!!

    Utah fans constantly

    - brag about being in a P5 conference,

    - brag about Utah’s great success in a coed sport in which only ONE other P5 competes,

    but

    - mock BYU for finishing 8th and 25th in a sport in which the Cougars competed against more than FIFTY P5s

    The hypocrisy on the hill is utterly absurd!

    Congratulations to both the Men’s and Women’s BYU Track & Field Top 25 teams.

    Men
    BYU #8
    USU #40
    SUU #45

    (highest P12 was Oregon #12)

    Women
    BYU #25
    USU and WSU had athletes that qualified for nationals

    Utah didn’t even earn a participation ribbon.

    “By the way, what a crowd pleaser......so many folks watch guys run long distances. I wann buy a ticket man!”

    Hundreds of thousands turn out to watch marathons every year.

    Certainly more than turn out to watch Denver, Colorado and Utah compete in coed skiing;

    do they even televise that snooze fest?

    BYU’s Men finished #8.
    BYU’s Women are up to #29.

    Even Utah St and Weber St

    are representing.

    The mighty weak P12 Utes are no shows.

    If you claim Texas Tech as a fellow P5 you also have to claim Northwestern, Vanderbilt, etc.

    The Utes fill that role well in the PAC 12.

    There are many athletic programs that are not P5 in the country that are more prestigious than a supposed P5.

    Nowhere is that more true than in the state of Utah.

    @ blue n gold,

    Your WAC era relic football team is almost extinct big hitter. It is unfortunate that Utah cancelled BYu football in 2014, because Devontae Booker would have run roughshod all over BYu.

    When U lose again to Utah this August, just thank your lucky stars that it isn't 10 losses in-a-row this decade.

    By the way, what a crowd pleaser......so many folks watch guys run long distances. I wann buy a ticket man!

    Take care dear soul.

    Gee, Chris B - Salt Lake City, UT. How many P5 teams did BYU finish ahead of? And, please tell us, what place did "P5" Utah finish.

    Utah-Hawaii Alum - CA, 00

    You are just making yourself look silly now. No one claimed BYU was "world beaters." Any talk about winning the NCAA's was acknowledged as a very remote possibility. And I don't know what "revenue" sports has to do with this article but I suppose you just cannot help with your fixation on BYU and your need to say something negative. But "not competitive?" Well there are a lot of teams, including P5, who would not agree with you. Like maybe Utah in basketball.

    “Congrats to fellow p5 Texas tech on a national title.”

    LOL!

    Typical glomming on to an accomplishment the Utes have absolutely NOTHING to do with.

    The sorry Utes aren’t even participants.

    “Man-oh-man.......? The whY hype going into this meet was again......simply "unreal," pun intended.”

    yawn,

    - BYU finished 5.5 points out of 4th, but even an 8th place dwarfs anything Utah’s men have ever done in Track & Field.

    “Y fans need to talk less and accept their place as a decent athletic program and not competitive in revenue sports.”

    Congratulations on your 4th place finish...

    in the state, behind UVU.

    * light pat on head *

    BYU has owned U in basketball since Majerus era players ( Bogut) left the U:

    14 of the last 20, most by double digits, including THREE 20-point blowouts.

    EIGHT NCAA tourneys to only THREE.

    They had a real shot at a top 3 finish, but 8th is nothing to scoff at, regardless of what some goofs balls may think. Nice Job Cougs!

    I think an 8th place finish is great, CONGRATS, but like all things BYu.......... they always claim they are "world beaters."

    Y fans need to talk less and accept their place as a decent athletic program and not competitive in revenue sports.

    This may have been a disappointing finish considering the team was ranked fourth, but finishing eighth in the country is still great. Congratulations Cougar tracksters!
