Mike let me help you....Utah by 8Go UTES!!!!
That was a great article. Very much needed and I hope these trash talkers read
this because it seems both sides are clueless to the history to this rivalry.
Us fans are so lucky to be part of a huge and historic rivalry. Many colleges
barely have a rival, so we truly are lucky.
Utah is third highest in percentage of LDS students behind BYU and Utah St.
You'd never know it by the behavior of some students and fans who 'pretend' not
be be LDS during this week.Utah has over 80% of its students living
at home with mom and dad. Kind of takes the edge off all the 'tough talk' you
hear.Utah and BYU are alike in all other demographics - students
mostly from Utah, California and the West. Kind of blows the Utah mirage of
being cosmopolitan.To most of us outside Utah, we are mildly amused
by the antics of Utah students and fans to 'distance' themselves from BYU - you
are more alike than you will admit!!!
You in Utah really DON'T know how good you have it. In my neck of the woods,
the big rivalry is the Apple Cup - Washington -vs- Washington State.High stakes indeed. Somebody will win a game this year.
Leave it to a ewt to get the "Utah" propaganda score wrong... IT is Utah by
5.... (Tom Barberi's annual BYU-Utah projection)...BUT..This year look for BYU 42 Utah 28
This is a big game. I agree--far better than the Washington Washington State
game (BTW, Washington State does have a win over Portland State). I think
Washington may just get a win this week as Washington State is probably the
inferior team.I doubt BYU will win 42-28. On paper, Utah wins this
game. But, it isn't played on paper, but on the field and we have seen
"miracles" performed by BYU in the past. The teams are pretty even. More
likely than not, it will be decided by a touchdown or less. Because of the
string of late miracles that Utah remembers, I am expecting this year that Utah
will have BYU down by two scores late in the game to end the streak of miracles.
look for BYU to finally have some spark since the UCLA game and call it BYU 42
and Utah 35.
Collie and Harline are still open and that scares even the alpha yewt.
I laugh at you bwhyu fans who think your actually going to score 35+ points on
saturday. You guys are a joke. I have the over under pegged at 31. You never
know what offense is going to show up with jughead in the both, and as good as
the why's offense is, Utah's defense will smother themUtah 17WHY 14
So, Todd, after 2 years you're still using the most lame response to this whole
situation "___ is still open..." GROW UP and think for yourself for once. How
is it that you've had two years to think up some new material for the rivalry,
yet you continue to be less-than-creative creative and utilize comebacks from
2006? Maybe you still use boondoggle and slap-bracelets, too, along with your
troll doll collection.
great post, man, but I'm pretty sure nobody from the Y knows what "over under"
means...it's probably against the honor code to know gambling terminology - they
may lose their privledges to the Wilkinson Center or The Creamery or something,
and life just can't go on without that...
It may have been lame, but his trolling worked on you.
Hahaha! Keep those BYU jokes comin'! Since I'm not supposed to know any gambling
terminology-good thing this is anonymous-I'll put the over/under on the average
Ute fan's IQ at about 75. Yep, that's about right.
Pay Attention Cougar fans. This article states that BYU admists Utah has the
series advantage... by a comfortable margin.No way does the Y hang
as many pts on the U as Oregon St or Michigan did!!!!
Don't be knocking on slap-bracelets and boondoggle. They are commin' back
Pretty sure most of us Y fans know a lot more about gambling and football than
you give us credit for. (Wish we knew less about gambling) There is no way these
two teams don't get into the 20s each. BYU's offense is too good and their
defense too poor for that not to happen. GO COUGS
Does anyone know where I can find a blue treasure troll?
What is your evidence to suggest that the Why's offense is capable of
man-handling utah's defense? You've played one good defense, and the only reason
you scored as much as you did was because the put the 3rd stringers in.And, as bad as your defense is (and i said this in the above post) no-one
knows which utah offense is gonna show up- 35 points in the first half against
San Diego or 3 points in the second half against michigan. I could be far off,
but i think most logical people will agree with my 31 point over/under
"Trolling?" Hmmm.... Too bad his "trolling" didn't work during his NFL career
- o wait, he didn't really have one. And by "trolling," did you mean a
linebacker dropping out of zone coverage to try and hit Beck, thus leaving him
open? I'll make sure to scratch that out of my Webster's Dictionary and insert
the new definition.
Yeah, um,Pretty sure there's a lot of nonsensical trash talking
going on here...why doesn't everyone just wait for the game instead of talking
like a bunch of kindergarteners? We all know the U isn't full of
people with low IQ's. Talk to most Freshman girls at BYU and you'll promptly
want to shoot yourself in the head. And everyone at the U doesn't
automatically have street-cred. Like somebody said earlier, half of them live
with mommy and daddy still, commuting from their suburban shelters.As a typical out-of-state, temporary resident of Utah that is tired of the
constant trash talk across the "Great Divide," let me remind all of you that
people at these two GREAT (yes, you heard it, BOTH of them) institutions talk
trash for one reason, naivete. Watch the game, then laugh and point.
Coug kittens are already starting to whine about their injuries! By the end of
the week, they will use justification in their future loss because of Utah's
home field advantage and their star players on the injury list.Utah by 27.
Of course Bwhiner students are a lot like Utah students. That's why the U calls
byU their little brother. Keep questing for perfection zoobs, you might be as
good as the U someday.
What fun is a rivalry without trash talk?
Yes you can say "Harline is still open in the endzone or 4th and 18"....But in response the Utes kinda win"Alex Smith is still holding up the
FIESTA BOWL TROPHY AFTER WINNING EVERY GAME THAT YEAR!"oh, and
exchange Brian Johnson for Alex Smith and you have this year:)
As a U fan, I have to say that I am concerned. Twice now we've thought we had
the game wrapped up, and twice we've found a way to let it slip away. That is
the most concerning thing that I feel right now. No matter how good we think we
are, we've found ways to let BYU beat us. I just worry about this
Keep it coming all week. I was in a really bad mood until I read these comments
and the follow-up thereafter. To ALL BYU fans: live up this week.
To ALL UTAH fans: live up this week. Under the current system when will this
type of week EVER happen again? Both insitutions and its fans deserve to have
some fun this week. If this game has to be decided by special teams, which it
very well could be, Utah has the edge. If defense is what will control the
outcome of this game Utah has the edge. If it is offense that will solely win
the game BYU is a juggernaut on offense. However, rare is it offense is all you
need to be a quality team. These are the facts. BYU has an adequate SP teams,
an average (at best) defense, and a great offense. Utah has a great SP teams
(Louie-need I say more) who pin teams deep in their own territory and don't give
the opportunity to run the ball back on kickoffs. The defense is very, very
good. What more is there to say? The offense, though not as good as BYU, will
An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who posts
controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online

of provoking other users into an emotional response or to generally

Somehow these comments like the intensity of posts I have seen in previous

Okay, Sakoda has a great leg. Everybody says so. But net punting should tell
the tale. Let's take a look at the bottom line for the year:Net
Punting:Utah (w/ Mr. Perfect Louie Sakoda) - 47 punts, 40.6 yards avg, 8
touchbacksBYU (w/ Mr. JC transfer) - 36 punts, 41.5 yardsavg.,
4 touchbacksBYU's punter has had better placement, longer kicks, and
hasn't had to punt as often.So, why is you're giving Utah the edge
in Special Teams?
Fact: BYU fans tend to be more self-righteous like you. That's why a lot of
Utah fans don't like you. Fact: University of Utah has more LDS
returned missionaries on its team right now than BYU. Fact: Utah's
head coach had the chance to coach BYU for more money, but chose not to.
Utah has the edge in special teams because Sakoda doesn't miss, and he has a
golden leg. He is an all-american. He will be in the NFL. BYU's
kicker (what's his name?) is a JC transfer (so I'm told). That is why the Utes
have the edge in special teams. This isn't a conspiracy. Sakoda is
0 for 3 on "facts", but keep trying, you still have most of the week left to
come up with a true fact.
Thank goodness on fact #3!
Keep working on fact #1. Calling someone else "self-righteous" is kind of like
saying "You is stoopider than I is" - it really says more about you than it does
about the other person.
More self righteous? Subjective not a fact. The funny thing here is that the U
has a high number of LDS students that actually live, or say they do, the BYU
honor code. It is just well hidden on game days.More RM's better
start counting. This is not correct.Coach W actually listened to
BYU and then took Utah's increased offer. During the process Utah substantially
raised the ante. I'm sure Kyle is pleased he talked with BYU because of the
increased salary he received.One interesting note: For the facts
guy. What school did Matt Asiata apply for entrance and was turned away because
of grades twice? Once before Snow and then also after Snow?
I must say that I was more than a little concerned about BYU before the AFA
game. But I now have full confidence in the offense to score just enough points.
BYU's DB sqaud is certainly the weakest part of the team, what with all the
injuries(Scott Johnson DOUBLE groin tear, OUCH!) and 2nd, 3rd stringers playing.
But the ute O isn't too hot either, but their D is tough. and ofcourse the utes
have Sakoda(the utes saving grace in many games).Still, BYU will pull off
a come from behind victoryBYU 34utah 30
Wow, I'm so proud of Utah having more RM's. Last I heard, every single one of
them will tell you it was the best 2 months of their lives.Peace,Son of a Ute
I guess i just don't understand the whole little brother comment. I guess having
two older siblings, I never really thought thought being a little brother was
that bad.So, if Utah fans are so set on having a little brother, I
say let them. I, a genuine BYU alumni, will gladly be their little brother, and
they can be either of my big sisters that they want.Now can we get
back to football? Hey Sis, what's for dinner? OOH, blackened bird/hawk-like
thing, my favorite.Son of a Ute

Ummmmmm, the real little sister trails in the series 52-33-4. The real little
sister has never been to a major bowl (> $10M payout). The real little sister
can't get out of the first round of the NCAA tournament and has never been to a
final 4.Oh, props for little sis for beating 6-6 Michigan, backing
into a NC without beating anyone.... which created the BCS so such an
embarrassing moment would never happen again.Come on up to RES on
Saturday so big brother can spank your slow kewgs. Be sure to dig your red
shirts out of the closet and join us again pretending to be Ute fans at our BCS
NCAA national football champions trophy.One team in Utah has one,
one doesn't.End of analysis.
Doesn't BYU lead in the turnover margin. That will be the difference in the
BCS Bowl games, one team has one, the other one doesn't.Top 10
ranking, one team has one, the other one doesn't.Favored by 6.5
points, one team is, the other team isn't.Chance for a BCS Bowl
game, one team has one, the other doesn't.52-33-4 head to head
record, one team has it, the other has 33-52-4, yet talks smack.Will
you ever learn?Enjoy the Armed Forces Bowl!! I'll send you
postcards from Phoenix, New Orleans or Miami, where the Utes will be playing in
their 2nd BCS Bowl!!GO UTES!!
First of all, Utah was supposed to lose those two games, and yet, they almost
won both. This year, we are supposed to win, and we will win! It will be 2004
all over again! Our defense if far better at holding the other team from last
minute heroics this year. They've stopped a few teams in that mode.
I'll take our unbeaten record in 2004 that includes a BCS bowl win. A team that
could've won the National Championship in a title game versus BYU's National
Championship in 1984 where they did'nt win as many games, and they just barely
beat a Michigan team that was barely bowl eligible. Both did the same thing of
going undefeated, but one never had a close game and looked ever the champion
while the other just barely sqeaked out a win to make everybody wonder if they
could've done it against the #2 team.
ok one. if you think the game will be a blow out. get a freaking life. the game
will come down to the last team with the ball. like it usually does. and usually
that ends up in BYU's favor. second. everyone says that utahs defense is
amazing. dont get me wrong it is amazing. but for the past two years it hasnt
been. actually three years. ya BYU lost but utah let BYU come back from a huge
lead. utahs defese CHOKES. everyone knows it. but this year hopefully it will be
a good scoring game and utahs defense and returning sp doesnt choke because if
they do(like they have done this year an last year) then BYU will crush them.
but i want a good game. my prediction is though looking at the stats from the
season is BYU:31 utah:28 off a blocked field goal 40+. thats how i see it. or
just a touchdown in the last seconds. but i wish both teams good luck and i hope
they put a the best game in BYU vs UTAH historyGO COUGARS
This game will be a very competitive game. Both teams will move the ball well
and will score over 20. I think in the end coaching and O-line will be the
difference. BYU wins 27-24 Collie has over 100 yards for the tenth straight
game. Hall goes 30-39 389 yards 2 TDs 0 INT
Fact: Utah has never lost in the rivalry when Favored.Fact: Utah favored by 4 points.Rumor: Pitta game time with
knee injury. Big problem for CUBERS even if 70%. George
is nowhere as good.Fact: Unga won't be a factor. Powerful, but too
slow.Fact: Utah held both the PAC-10 and MWC leading
"The real little sister can't get out of the first round of the NCAA
tournament"I'll bet you Utes have tons of stories to tell about the
highs and lows of BCI tournament play,What was it like to play and
lose in a touney put together to find the 98th best team in the country?
I laugh at the UTE Pride for their "BCS" bowl game. It cracks me up how many Ute
fans seriously think that the ultimate in College Football is getting to play in
a "big money" game against a team that didn't even finish the season in the top
20!Yes it's something that BYU hasn't done, yet, but realize that
the BCS is only 10 years old, and because of what BYU did the system is changed
and it is now possible for MWC teams to play in "Big Money" games. Under the
present standard for BCS selection BYU would have been a BCS team in 2001, 1996,
1990, 1984, 1983, 1980, and 1979.The bright side is that for your
historical dominance atleast you have basketball to fall back on. And the Utes
are undefeated against DI schools so far this year.
whoever thinks the game will be a blow out needs to get a life. the game will be
within a touchdown. this is how i see it. BYU's offense will be slightly better
than utah's defense. and utah's offense will either tie or be slightly better
than BYU's defense. so i think it comes down to special teams. with BYU's kick
blocking and their punt tipping and utah's kicking and pinning deep ability i
see the game score will be within the 30's. i only say that because the offense
of both teams are slightly better than the other teams defense. but i expect a
great game. also i expect BYU to win because utah will drop a lot of putns/kick
returns. if they didnt then utah would win. but the stats show that they will
drop a key punt/kick return/pass or fumble becuase or line is 100 pounds bigger
than utahs and our running backs are as big as utah's lineman. people think odds
are in utah's favor. but if you look at everything carefully BYU has better odds
plus johnson's choices arent utah's favor. BYU:34utah:31BYU blocks or kicks a field goal. thats how the game ends!!!
Oh. There is no question it will be a BLOW OUT. Utah 38 BYU 7(It Could be a
shut out though).
"I laugh at the UTE Pride for their "BCS" bowl game. It cracks me up how many
Ute fans seriously think that the ultimate in College Football is getting to

in college football.It cracks me up how many kewg fans seriously
think that the ultimate in college football is getting to play in a NC game
(Holiday Bowl... hahaha) against a 6-6 team that didn't even finish the season
in the top 20!Think before you post!
Ute fans are the most obnoxious on the planet.
You can argue all you want about the history of both teams, but the most telling
fact is that the series has been split evenly over the last 20 years, with most
of the games being decided by a TD or less. This is going to be a close game.
It's a good thing though that the Ute offense is about as stagnant as the BYU
I am smiling in anticipation of a very lopsided score in favor of the Utes. I
honestly believe the Cougs are not even good enough to beat Utah or Boise State.
In fact I am pretty sure they would lose to Hawaii and Fresno State. This
Cougar team is soooooooooooo over-rated they need to take another dump. I see
it coming on 11/22/08 at the RES.
Why don't we just stop all the trash talking and just wait for the game on
Saturday, then we can start trash talking....
I was watching the advertisement above and thought yes it will be a replica of
Cougar fans faces on game day. Check the ad out it is way UGLY (up above).
Anyway. Hope yall survive the big crash and make it through your rehab.
