U. pains: Johnson's separated shoulder, Asiata's broken leg
From what I saw in Corvallis, after the injuries the Utes lacked HEART just like
last year. Sport is facing adversity--responding to adversity and winning
through adversity. Add to this the fact that the coaching in the game plan did
not adjust to use Poston or Mack. Why? There were no noticable adjustment at the
half. Why? Did the Utes have a back up plan? What ever happened to plan for the
best and prepare for the worst? The players are not exempt there was no fire in
their game. What ever happened to team spirit? No toughness--mental toughness.
No effort to avenge the injury losses, not to create injuries as revenge, but
moreover to win in spite of the player losses. Why?
hahahahahahaah UTES aer going down hard!!!! LOL, it doesnt get any better then
a lot of BYU fans were actually wanting UTAH to win...it would be good for the
conference...mountain west would get more exposure, we live in the same state so
therefore should cheer on the utes...blah...blah...blah...I'm happy they are in
big trouble!! I hate the UTES! Expect another horrible season UTE fans!!!!
typical byu fans. you two totally exude the class we've all come to expect from
utah county. pull your heads out of the bubble and think like a human being for
a second. you're cheering because two young men are injured and one had to
undergo surgery? you can't be serious. think about that for a minute. you
might begin to realize why most people loathe you guys.
I don't like the Utes... but I still gotta feel bad for the players and team.
What a sledgehammer blow on the first game of the season.
I am still hoping the utes can pull this out and continue on with a tough season
ahead of them. We have a talented team and can do alot of good, as long as we
stay healthy as for BYU i just feel sorry for them... afterall they live in Utah
County. GO WILDCATS!
In a word DISGUSTING! No, Im not talking about my beloved Crimsons performance
on Thursday; when faced with adversity. Im talking about you pukes living just
south of the SL County border; in towns where hypocrites dwell and holy rollers
flock to make boxes of soap to stand on and preach from. While I hope Arizona
makes mince meat out your joke of a team today and rolls up as many points as 60
minutes will allow on your pathetic children in blue I would NEVER wish nor
cheer for a microsecond that any of them will be injured the way Matt Asiata and
Brian Johnson were on Thursday. Youre a farce Booger fans, you are exactly
whats wrong with not only our religion, but college football and humanity in
general. You are the reason why no right thinking individual outside of
Zoob-Ville will EVER cheer for your nerd of a coach and his Romper Room team;
nor ANY of your other athletic teams for that matter. I offer my testimonial
hope that you WILL lose every game this year and your co-eds will continue to
get uglier. I leave this sincere prayer/hope with you in the name of Utedom
whoever monitors this site is not doing their job - is calling people BOOGERS
part of a community / football discussion?
You guys are ridiculous. I love how you guys make comments about EVERYONE who
lives in Utah County or goes to BYU by some comments about the injuries that
BYU's rivals have. I also doubt the BYU fans are happy that as individuals
Johnson and Asiata are hurt. More than likely they are probably happy that
THEIR RIVALS aren't going to do as well. Also, coming from out of
state I think it is hilarious that you guys put so much stock in which valley
people live in. Considering about 80% of Utah lives in a 45 mile stretch I
would consider the difference to be negligible.There are some
extreme generalizations happening here that are based on very strange premises.
I haven't read one blog where a BYU fan has indicated that (s)he was happy that
two of your guys were injured. I have read nothing but sympathy and best wishes
for them to recover quickly and completely.What I have heard and
read is that BYU fans are ecstatic that yewt FANS are going down - again.As for me, I have a great deal of respect for the players at Utah and
the time and effort they put in to represent their school. What I do despise,
however, are the Yewt fans. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to go to work
on the day after a loss(days that are becoming more and more common) and not
have to say one word to any of the Yewt fans, but still know that my message is
being heard loud and clear! Silence is sweet!Have a wonderful year,
I feel bad that the Utah players got hurt. The thing I hate is how come all the
BYU fans I know were cheering Utah on against Oregon, and all the Utah fans are
cheering for Arizona. Utah fans should show some respect for the
wow, maybe one reason utah couldn't overcome the adversity thursday night was
because of all the bad kharma over there in utah land. geez, you guys sound
like sec fans. get real, it's just a game. trust me, i suffered many years
cheering kids that might have been competitive with the better high school teams
in oregon. it's football!! it's fun!
Poor Utes. I was really hoping for great things this year. I was a bit
surprised at the number of sympathetic blogs from BYU fans. Although I despise
the Y they have brought respect to the Mountain west almost single handedly (via
the old WAC for the most part). I for one hate them with an absolute passion,
yet like them, I will be hoping that Arizona loses big and the Mountain West can
earn a bit of credibility. So with that as much as it pains me.... Go CSU, GO
So sad about the Ute players getting hurt - it hgurts the entire team. I
graduated from the Y way back last century and my two favorite teams have been
the Y and the Utes. But I find it funny that so many of the Cougar fans I know
also cheer for the Utes except when they play against each other. Several years
ago the Aggies" had more returned missionaries on their team than the
Cougars - hey lets cheer for each other and help buold this conference up,
UTAH NEEDS TO FIRE WITTINGHAM.....bringing back the Ron McBride era just
absolutely makes me sick! I hope that Utah can pull it together and make
something happen this season! I also hope that the Cougs' can step up and find
themselfs....Quit with the judgemental comments and the better than you crap!
You aren't! One good year and a couple of games mean absolutely nothing! It is
the end result that matters! Lets bring back the "GOOD" competition and leave
the petty crap out of it!
You still have a chance to jump our BYU bandwagon. Seriously, there is plenty of
room. I will say however that I'm not completely happy--I am a
closet Ute fan. If you guys had a great season don't think I wouldn't be
slipping on my Ute hat that is hidden under the front seat of my truck. So its
okay for you to be a little happy for the Y too.
The Utes are terrible. So is Whit. Ute fans are babies and can't take it when
there team isn't doing well. No one wanted BJ or Asiata to get hurt - now the U
probably won't even score when they play BYU. But, you bet, nothing like having
the Ute fans suffer.
Wow. Typical lack of class from byu fans.
Grow up BYU fans. Glory years aren't back. If they are. I'll take a 6-22 bowl
record Lavell gave you.D-bags
You all make me sick. BYU fans, why the heck are you reading, much less
commenting on a story about the U?! U Fans, get over it. Nobody wants players to
get injured - that's just sick. Moronic fans don't realize that in order for any
mid-major to ever get a shot at a BCS title the entire conference needs to be
strong. If your only hope is for your arch rival to lose you're an idiot and you
shouldn't watch college football.
It is always sad when any player gets hurt. I am sorry for the Utes and their
team this year; they put in a lot of work in the offseason.However,
it was great to see BYU completely dominate Arizona tonight even with a weak
kicking game.Let's hope Utah can move forward and be competitive in
league play and for the rivalry game. Go Cougs! I will be at the
game next week to see you make a serious run at Big Ben and the Bruins.
Glad to be back here after a long abscence. I am sorry to see Johnson and
Asiata out with injuries. I am sorry for them and for the team. I wanted them
to be healthy all season so the U could play at its best level. Now
to those who talk about poor sports, or pathetic BYU fans, when are you going to
clean up your own house with the foul mouthed vulgar fans of yours who come to
BYU, and have been doing it for years, use their filthy foul language to express
themselves and show their distaste for BYU. They even try to bring in signs
with vulgar comments about BYU players. I have witnessed these for years when I
was able to attend a BYU-Utah game. Nothing has changed. I have seen and sat
behind Utah fans who actually cheered when a BYU player was hurt or broke a leg.
They thought that was wonderful. Look for the Beam in your own eye. I doubt
they would use this language in trying to impress a girl friend or were with
their mother. President Kimball stated it very succinctly:
Vulgarity is the feeble attempt of a weak mind to express itself." 600,000 words
in the English language and these so-called sports fans are only able to use one
What is a yewt? I know that a Ute is a member of a native American nation which
inhabited the region which is now known as Utah. Please explain, I honestly
don't know. But it seems somewhat disrespectful to those people at first
