Good luck, Colorado!!!!!!!!
I can't believe I'm a Cal fan for one whole day. Go Golden Bears!(Not too much to worry about in the other two games.)
1) Utah 45 Colorado 102) Cal 35 ASU 283) USC 31 UCLA 14The best thing after going 8-4 in the regular season is a chance to get 9th
win with the conference championship game.Rose bowl within reach.
However, Alamo or Holiday is fine too.Go Utes!!!
Does anyone else feel like this "rivalry" is being forced? It's like
giving yourself a nickname in high school - it'll never stick.
"Rumble in the Rockies" will be as much of a rumble as the "Holy
War" was a war. The only difference our new rival won't quite by the 4th
quarter.Utah 42Buffs 3
My bad, I meant "quit". Sorry Veritas, I know how much you enjoy
correcting spelling/grimmer errors.
This will be a rivalry only with time. The name being attached to this is
stupid. Go UTES!!!!!!!!
Perhaps there will be a completely new atmosphere in Utah during the
Thanksgiving and Christmas season. The hatred between Utah and BYU fans may, in
time, subside. Utahns can root for both teams with a spirit of pride in both. I
hope, for the sake of my grandchildren who will grow up there, that the late
season game will never be played again. Let BYU, Utah and Utah State play each
other in September.
Good grief. The CU/CSU game has been known for years as the "Rumble in the
Rockies." How did Utah hi-jack that moniker?
Uteology--that would be "grammar" errors.And yes, DC--it does
feel like it's being forced and a little bit like giving yourself a nickname in
high school, but you're wrong to say those things don't stick. I nick named
myself Sir Studley as a pimply tenth grader and the name has stuck like glue for
years.Still--"Rumble in the Rockies?" Really? It sounds like
something you'd advertise with some guy with a deep gravely voice, speaking
really slowly."Friday, Friday, Friday---Get ready ta
how much do the utes get for their root tv contract? i've heard they are
negotiating with pbs for next year's contract.
Call it what you want. The Buffs may be lousy this year, and our year has taken
an unlikely path. But here we sit at 4-4 in league play, and yet our season and
this game are still exciting. Juan Blanco has a chance to break the single
season rushing record and we still have a good chance to get to the Holiday
bowl! The PAC 12 is so much better than the Mountain West Conference! Go Utes!
Talk about much ado about nothing:--Utah doesn't play the two best
teams in the conference--The best team in the south is ineligible--Not a single conference win came against a team with a winning record--The Utes play five conference home gamesand even with all of
that going for them--The Utes still have to rely on other teams
imploding to win the southThis is like beating CSU, Wyoming, New
Mexico, UNLV, and SDSU for a chance to get smoked by Boise State or TCU in the
conference championship game.Good luck against CSU, er, CU -- Rumble
in the Rubble indeed.
TroyTown, you are too funny. No self respecting USC fan would be obsessing
about the Utes as much as you do as evidenced by your constant troll like
statements on articles that are all things Utes. It is obvious you are a Y
troll pretending to represent the USC view which is funny in a sad for you way.
Too me it is pathetic that any Y fans think they have a right to put in digs
against Utah when they their team looked Div II against when the played the
Utes; at home no less; obviously Utah is way better than the mid major team in
Provo which brings of the desperate jealousy of the kittens.
Poll question of the day:Which "rivalry week" game will
end up being closer?Utah vs. ColoradoorBYU
vs. BYEMy vote is BYU vs BYE
"How did Utah hi-jack that moniker?"---VegasBartUtah? Myopia affects hundreds of folks on these threads my friend. The Denver Post reported: "Working together, the schools' marketing
departments have developed "Rumble in the Rockies" as the official
name of the renewed Colorado vs. Utah series for all sports, beginning with
Friday's football game in Salt Lake City. "Rumble in the Rockies" was
announced this week. The schools say the slogan was chosen after weighing fan
input."===="Talk about much ado about nothing:--Utah doesn't play the two best teams in the conference--The best team
in the south is ineligible--Not a single conference win came against a
team with a winning record"---TroyTownFacts. They can be
so tough to handle when you are blinded by hatred. Currently UCLA,
whom the Utes beat soundly, have a winning record. If the Bruins beat USC, they
will win the south outright as they would hold a tie-breaker over the
probabation stricken Trojans.And it is debatable that Oregon is
better than said Trojans, whom the U played on the road and lost by missing the
game tieing field goal.If you are indeed a Trojan fan, then sorry.
I hardly think that a USC ineligibility so the Utes can go to the Rose Bowl
counts as a turnaround. Whatever floats your boat.
Awwe, niners, have a little more confidence in your Utes. Colorado isn't going
to blow them out nearly as bad as you think they will.
ute alumni"...how much do the utes get for their root tv

pebblesNice dodge, but you didn't address any of Troy Town's salient
points.*U lost to the best team in the south*U got byes
against the best two teams in the conference*U played 5 of your 9
conference games at home*If U win the south, you won't have beaten a
single conference team with a winning recordYet, with all of that
going for U, U still have to hope your only two competitors will implode just to
get a chance to get destroyed by Oregon.The fact that Utah fans are
completely obsessed with talking smack with BYU fan during Utah's so-called
"rivalry" week is proof positive that Utah fans couldn't care less
about their new "rival".
I love "Fumble in the Rockies"! (Sorry Uteology, I meant
"Rumble")Was "Band of Brothers" taken?I guess Utah fans are fine with slogans after all?===Rock Of

rivalry.Ute fans are excited because this football season has gone
from being exciting to frustrating and discouraging to very exciting again. We
have seen phenomenal coaching and hard nosed gritty players. We are
loving our conference, our season, and, most of all, our players.You
can stick with your espn driven late night games against junior colleges. You
can cheer when your QB high-fives the refs.We'll stick with great
football! Go Utes!
@ swoop"The fact that Utah fans are completely obsessed with talking

Most Utah fans think it's funny the media is trying to force this rivalry on
us... Are you so insecure that you are worried that Utah might not consider BYU
rivals anymore? Well just to make you feel better, Utah will probably consider
the Y rivals until the 2nd 40 point beat down Utah gives you next season. So
don't worry buddy, the Y is still relevant to Utah for a little bit longer.
Wow, you Cougie trolls bug the Utah trolls to get off their articles, but this
is ridiculous. A little obsessed about big brother maybe playing in the PAC
championship game? Wow.How's that Independence thing working out for
you Cougies?Go Utes! Take it to the buffalos!And go
@ Oh, please!"Good luck, Colorado!"Good luck
B.Y.E, beat BYU!!!!
@SwoopySwoopy, you again, two questions;1). Hows your
rivalry week game going today?2). Does the Why have any
opportunities if anything happen's in regard to; if a team loses or a team wins
today?Hear that? Tic Toc, Tic Toc, Tic Toc. (Silence)Thats the sound of Independence.Hang in there band of Lil Brothers
who is the new ute bball rivalry with now? saint martha's sisters academy? gotta
love it baby.
Veritas Aequitas,Fumble in the Rockies should be the BYU slogan for
the Utah BYU game next year. 7 turnovers!That turnover at Arby's was
definitely good mood food.
@ ute alumni"who is the new ute bball rivalry with now? saint
martha's sisters academy? gotta love it baby."Isn't Saint
Martha's Sisters Academy in the WCC? I hear they're good and may give byu a
challenge. Gotta love it baby!
@TroyTownTrue, but this is also true... 1) Utah had one
year recruiting under the PAC-12 banner other schools have been recruiting for
decades.2) Utah also doesn't have the same athletic budget as other
PAC-12 schools since they won't get paid PAC-12 money for a few more yearsBe patient my Cougar friend. In our first year, with MWC recruits going
5-4 in the first year, with a top 3 PAC-12 defense, and finishing 8-4 is a great
Turnaround??? Are you kidding me??? Tell me, who has Utah beaten?
UCLA - at home was, well, expected but congratulations. Other than that they
have beaten Oregon State, Arizona, Washington State and probably Colorado.Sorry guys but the PAC12 is weak, the southern division is weaker, and
Utah is even weaker still.
TroyTown | 9:14 a.m. Nov. 25, 2011Anaheim, CA--Not a single
conference win came against a team with a winning record-------A Trojan fan doesn't know the record of their hated rival whom they play
tomorrow? As of today, UCLA is 6-5.What happened to that ASU fan
that made a few posts a while back?
@ ute alumniObviously a Cougie in Utes clothing.Like all
the Y fans, all wannabes, wants to be just like their older Ute brother.Some day Band of Little Brothers
We don't need Utah as a rivalry anymore, the Y will develop a better rivalry
with Notre Dame. We will have world wide exposure on ESPN. and count it,next
year another Nation Championship! Jake Heaps will start next year and finish
with a Heisman.Good Luck in the Bottom of the PACThe Y
is moving on!
Rumble in the Rockies? Gotta love manufactured rivalries...
what is harvard's bball ranking? i know they are a powerhouse, but utes played
them tough last night, hope utes can get their attendence up to 2,500 this year.
buffs seem to be takng it to the yewtes. btw, my degrees are from the u, but i
can't stand the fans, most never graduated from high school, let aline the u.
Oops.....Colorado wins!! (Let the howling and excuses start.)
rumble with the rockettes. looking tough utes. just a tune up for the rose bowl.
24 consecutive road loses and now, the utes rolled over to let the buff get a
win. NICE! 4-5 not bad! i think the hairdos for the utes and the tats are what
makes them so powerful.
@ kitsutsukiYou almost got it right. Utah beat Montana State, not
Colorado. Just read what Uteology said a few posts above to see the
"spin" on a great Utah year at 8 - 4 in a weak-sister conference that
they had to go overtime to beat the 2nd from the bottom and actually lost at
home to the bottom team.I think Utah will likely lose their bowl
game. And imagine, at 7 - 5 their delusional fans thought they were going to
the Rose Bowl. Hilarious!!
Did you see that??!! I thought the U was going to the championship game? Maybe
try not overlooking a team. 4-5 is ok, but you were one yard against Wash St.
from being 3-6. Not too impressive.
I really enjoyed all of the utah "fans" in this article claiming
