Sorry Utes, not this time!!!
Can't wait for Saturday. So pumped to see BYU lay the Wood on them UTES!!! GO COUGS!!!!!
Don't hate Utes and Cougs. Utah and BYU fans are not that much different, we
all have something in common - all of us applied to BYU. Love, peace and
pursuit of happiness ;)
Get ready for the RUMBLE!Always a pleasure to watch and usually a
nail biter.Go UTES! Lay the wood on 'em!TO BYU AND THEIR
FANS! ..."Harry! Come fix this TV! It must be broken. It keeps
showing the same play over and over again.A Hall interception.And is that the UTE fight song I hear? Have they scored on us again?!I thought we were ranked higher? Isn't the higher ranked home team
always supposed to win?"
The team with the most points at the end of the game wins. All the rest of the
build-up and trash talking is moronic. This is going to be good.
I love BYU football. They are both great teams. There is always lots of trash
talk back and forth. But when it comes right down to it. They both play very
well. The team with the most experiences QB usually wins the contest........I
know that Max Hall is one of the nations best QB.....and will go high in the
draft.........Good luck Max and Cougs.
BYU owns UTAH!
He is a good qb for laying putting up good numbers against horrible teams.He doesn't do too well in big games.Really, Val, you think someone will
draft him in the first 3 rounds?
was talking about the CFL draft.
Who ever wins Saturdays game will also win the BOOT!!By the way,
coach Whit is a great as a defensive coordinator as you can find but..... has no
skills as a head coach. Until he is gone, we are not returning to
the BCS. He's way too predictable and can't lead. Game
will be close, but I give the edge to Utah!
And Jordan Wyn is that much better? He has been putting up big numbers against
New Mexico and San Diego State?! The only important game he has played in he
got beat by 27 points! Freshman QB or Max Hall?! I will take Max
any day!BYU wins by 14+Go Cougars!PS: Vegas
odds have BYU by 7.5 points! Just FYI.
1984. Little brother up north still envies BYU's National Championship Trophy
sitting in Provo!Little bro, you will never get one, so keep
dreaming! Go Cougars!BYU wins by 14+
Until he's gone, we won't return to the BCS? He brought us there once, and has
been bringing in great recruits. Watch Jordan Wynn. He's a great QB, and he'll
be maturing greatly this offseason. He's already made great strides in the few
games that he's played. Maybe if you unzip that Ute-suit we'll find a cougar
Utah Offense-7Defense-8BYU Offense-9Defense-6Home field advantage- BYUprediction: BYU 27 Utah 20
Watch the demeanor of the coaches on the sidelines.... football is a game of
passion and generally speaking the more intense and fired team wins. Teams also
take the personality of their coach. Bronco= quiet non-emotional thus you can
see the lack of intensity. Whittingham= fiery competitor that expresses his
emotions to his and they follow... Utah has not been that great this year but
they find a way to win because they BELIEVE they will win and they play with
EMOTION this comes from their coach... sorry until Bronco quits being boring and
soft spoken and shows some emotion the TDS will never break 10-3
I don't think it is much of an argument to say you would take Max Hall vs. a
freshman QB. In fact, that may be the only time I would take him. Someone
please come up with a stat line for his games against top 25 teams. Someone,
anyone, post it! He will NOT be drafted on the first day. No way. I have seen
the way Bronco coaches and he does not prepare the cougars for this game. That
is why it is either a blow out, or the cougs pull it out in the last minute. No
miracle this year!
I think negative comments about either Coach Whittingham or Coach Mendenhall are
not well placed. They are both class acts and have done amazing things with
their respective programs and have brought great recognition to the MWC along
with TCU. If things continue as they have, adding in Air Force, the MWC will be
a force to be reckoned with across the country. You can thank the BYU and Utah
Coaches for getting us there.Should be a great game. Best of luck
to both Schools. Have fun with it and enjoy the moment.
He brought Utes back to BCS in 2008 --that is something that little
brothers down south are still dreaming and chasingJust remember:Tier-1: Utah, TCU (BCS gamers)Tier-2: AFA, BYU (BCS dreamers/chasers)Why would you want a coach in Tier-1 gone --unless you have a mind of a
always remember that 06' game. always...go cougs!
I AM A UTAH MAN and I think BYU will win this year. It is painful to admit, but
BYU is just the better team and has been all year. I wish we had Bronco as our
coach. I just do not think Whittingham is the coach that helps the program over
the long haul. He has made a living on Urban's residual. Urban's players are
gone and you can see slipping in the Utes play. I expect the Utes to have an
even worse year next year. Sorry but it is just the plain truth.
It must have been Lavelle Edwards "fiery demeaner" that won BYU its national
title and many conference titles. Man that guy would get fired up on the
sidelines. One time I think I even saw his frown shift slightly, but I couldn't
tell for sure.
Each team 2-2 since Kyle and Bronco took the helm, pretty cool. Looking forward
to a good game. Best of luck to both teams.
And Jonny Harline is STILL open!
Could be a while before they get a win over Utah. Not happening next year with
either Heaps/Nelson and nobody back on offense against Wynn, and when Wynn is a
junior and senior, could get ugly for the Cougs.Max better not
implode this time around.
It's a good thing Harline and Collie got open on miracle plays. Otherwise Utah
would be sporting a 7 game win streak versus BYU.As for last years
game, I wish I had a short quote reguarding Utah winning in the last moments,
but it's hard to find one in a 24 point blowout.48-24. Right now,
that's all that matters until Saturday.
all time record of U vs. Y: 53-33-4 or 50-30-4 depending which way you look at
it. Y has 20 years to catch up.p.s. Paul Kruger is still open!
Maybe we will get another quote from Jan Jorgensen. Be still my heart.
It's summertime in Utah and pigs fly... So sad the Cougar faithful have
fairytale delusions. Getting back to REALITY. Max Hall will wilt under the
pressure of Robert Johnson. REALITY he hasn't won the BIG GAME and don't bring
up OK because the Bingham Miners could beat OK. Harvey Unga will run all over
the UTES. REALITY UTAH like TCU will let UNGA run all afternoon if thats what
you want to do in the 3rd quarter down by three TD's. I know the only reality
for the Cougars will be the FINAL score on saturday and there will still be some
that won't wrap their heads around another BYU HOME FIELD BLOWOUT. Thats gotta
be tough, spending all that good money to watch three home game blowouts in one
season!!! UTAH 48 BYU 21 maybe...it could get ugly...UTAH 48 BYU 3 GO UTES!!!
What makes you think Wynn will be the starter three years from now. Or even
next year?After last year's game I remember all the Ute fans
bragging how Corbin Louks ran through the Cougar defense and how he was even
better than Brian Johnson and how the Utes were going to dominate the MWC
because their sophomore QB had gotten some big-game experience.Heck,
I remember just 3 months ago when Terrance Cain beat Utah State and how he was
the future of Utah football and how he was even better than Brian Johnson and
how the Utes were going to dominate the MWC this year.Wynn is a
decent QB, but I'd be willing to bet he won't finish his career as a starter.
Or even finish it with the Utes.
And just where is Johnny Harline playing ball these days? He's another example
of an ex-koog to make it big!!
If we count the coaches who played for BYU versus those who played for Utah, BYU
is way ahead. The Utes only improved in the recent rivalry by raiding former
Cougars to help them improve.
Could be a while before they get a win over BYU. Not happening next year with
Utah losing their defensive playmakers!Mike Wright = SeniorStevenson Sylvester = SeniorRobert Johnson = SeniorKoa Misi =

(Actually, it's "Who owns whom?". Subject/object, and all that. Don't they
teach grammar at that school in SLC?)."all time record of U vs. Y:
53-33-4 or 50-30-4 depending which way you look at it. Y has 20 years to catch
up."Yeah, and for 30 years football was a sideshow at BYU.Since 1964, when the BYU administration actually started to pay attention to
the program, BYU has dominated the series 28-17. Lavell Edwards went 22-7
against the Utes, and his teams usually won by scores of 70-31, 55-7, 56-28,
56-6, 51-20, 48-17, 48-20, and well, you get the idea.It wasn't
until they hired Ron McBride that the Utes even started to become competitive
again, and it wasn't until they hired Urban Meyer that the Utes actually
dominated the Cougars.Interesting that Utah fans dismiss BYU's 1984
national championship as "ancient history" yet they insist on counting victories
over the Cougars from when Joseph B. Wirthlin was playing.
Wynn also led an offense that put more points on TCU than any team all year.
Not even super Max could muster more than 7 on his home field. The defense was
the big disappointment in the TCU game. Not Wynn.
I'm so confident in my team based on their awesome performances against Oregon,
TCU, AF, Wyoming and CSU that I can talk smack about wins over BYU that haven't
even happened yet. Not just this Saturday, but my predictions for the next five
years are rock solid and beyond reproach. I have so much credibility after
predicting Utah's victory over TCU (it was just like last year right?) that I'm
surprised any zoobies even dare post on this board for fear of my retribution.
By the way, BYU's National Championship is a myth because they
couldn't possibly have beat that Washington team that BYU destroyed the
following season. My intellectual prowess is so grand I can re-write
history. In fact, Utah's 2 BCS victories have official erased BYU's 30 years of
dominance from the 70's to the 90's. As we speak the NCAA is now changing the
official W-L column for those games and automatically giving Utah victories for
the next four years. I'm that good. Fear me!Utah 4000BYU -2
Utah will win this game in Provo handing BYU their third home loss. The Utes are
simply better overall than BYU ...not by much ... but enough to propel the Utes
to victory by 7-10 points. The only thing that would save BYU is Utah turn
overs. Max Hall is so unpredictable it is scary for both the Utes and the
Cougars. BYU has no idea which Max will show up for the game but neither does
Utah. If the interception happy Max shows up then Utah wins by 20+ but if Max is
sharp and takes care of the ball and is able to spread the ball around to Pita ,
George and Jacobson then it will be a long day for the Utes. We pretty well know
which Utah team will show up... the mystery is which BYU team will show up???
Hey, whey don't you ask your coach what he thinks of that championship that you
Utes are so fond of criticizing?
"...does anyone really believe BYU would have beaten Washington or FL or
Nebraska or BC or Oklahoma??? NO!!!"That question was pretty much
settled in 1985, when BYU soundly defeated Boston College 28-14 and then two
weeks later completely dominated the Washington Huskies 31-3.You Ute
fans should really study your history better before you ask stupid questions.
Lots of 14 year old troller on this thread. Gosh, your well disguised comments
might just be used for cannon fodder on either bulletin board.--Sort of
pathetic.I've never seen these two teams so dead even at this time
of the year. BYU's at home, but LES is not a road game for the Utes. Hasn't been
for years. Over the past decade we can claim as much ownership of that place as
the Coogs can. The Coogs can't say the same about RES. Even when both teams are
very good, we tend to destroy you there. I look for the Coogs to try to reclaim
their manhood on Saturday and try to retain a sense of being able to guard their
house. I'm not positive about this, but I think this will be a classic. Go
The 1984 "championship isn't ancient history... it is just not legitimate!!!
Doesn't the post above make that obvious? Well, I suppose it does only for
those with common sense.
At the end of the 1984 season the #2 ranked team was Washington. In the 3rd
week of the 1985 season, BYU pounded Washington 31-3. In 1984 the
#5 ranked team was Boston College. In the 1rd week of the 1985 season, BYU
defeated Boston College 28-14. Wow, all of a sudden your "evidence"
of BYU's 1984 team not being worthy of a national title appear to be rather
The will be a close game but Utah will win simply because they are the better
overall team. BYU has fallen apart against every good team they have played this
year scoring only 7 points against OU until the final two minutes of the game
and getting blown away but FSU and TCU. Max Hall is a decent college QB but his
O-line isn't good and with the athletes the Utes have on defense Max is going to
have to pull a rabbit of his hat to win this one. I don't see BYU winning
without at least two Utah turn overs. I do think Utah will cause at least 4 BYU
turn overs which is why Utah will win.
hahahahahaha! You do realize that TCU had a 38-7 advantage over the utes in the
2nd half (same score against after 4 quarters against BYU)? Any points after
that were "garbage points."
This game won't even be close. Utah destroys BYU. BYU can't compete with the
superior Utah athletes just like they couldn't compete against the athletes from
FSU or TCU. Utah put up 28 points against TCU and BYU was lucky not to get shut
out (scoring only 7). Utah is simply a better football program than BYU top to
bottom and most the time the team with the better athletes wins. BYU is too slow
and too predictable on offense. The BYU defense bends and breaks so all Utah has
to do is not turn the ball over and they win this one easily by a bunch.
Another great rivalry game coming up. I'll be there! Can't wait!Thank you Utah Utes for not dropping off the map this season like you
historically have after a break out year. Thank you BYU for restoring a top
national program and maintaining that respect year after year. Thank you Bronco
and K-Whit for coaching great programs, with great records overall, and great
wins with bowl games and championships. The rivalry is as even as it
could ever be when comparing the seasons with these coaches at the head. But the
scale gets tipped on Saturday. Go cougars!

I'm not 50 and BYU will not catch UTAH in total victories over one another in my
lifetime. I could live to be 90! Wynn will throw the long ball all day on
the Cougars because they still haven't developed "motorized" walkers for the Y
secondary. That means Wide and Smithson will be able to get big yards on the
ground keeping Max & Co. on the sideline. Perfect 'cause Max will then feel the
pressure to "force" the game and thats when Johnson & Burton will start to have
fun. This will be the best game of the year for the UTES. It will be good
experience for the Y to get ready for another 6-6 Pac-10 opponent. Once again
that falls to Arizona or UCLA! Get pumped Cougars isn't this the season you
planned on with all your BIG Games @ home???? Next year will be even more fun
when you have to visit TCU & Utah. DANG it's a great time to be a Cougar!!!
BYU's program had won 23 consecutive games before the Michigan game. By the
way, that Michigan team would have crushed the maize and blue babies the Utes
beat by 3 points last year.They played Washington the next year in
Provo and the slaughter was so brutal the human society thought it was animal
cruelty.Other than Zane Beadles, not single player on Utah's offense
last year would have started for BYU in 1984.Jordan Wynn got 2 great
catches from Reed. Otherwise next to nothing. No other points scored until
garbage time, with 11 minutes to go in the 2nd quarter after the stupid Wynn
pass for a touchdown--to the FROGS!. TCU did to Utah what Jim McMahon used to
do to UTEP (49-0 with 10 minutes to go in the 2nd quarter). Utah looked like
Wyoming against BYU. Not a deer in the headlights, a piece of roadkill shredded
by an eighteen wheeler.Terrance Cain and/or Shaky Smithson will take
more snaps than Wynn on Saturday.Good luck to both teams. Keep it
clean and injury free. But try to keep the facts straight.
Hey even the Y can't decide who they are cheering for. Check out the BYU
bookstore. You can buy a hat that is split Utah/BYU.
"does anyone really believe BYU would have beaten Washington or . . . "Funny you should ask. As a matter of fact BYU played Washington the very next
year. Got demolished by the mighty Huskies, right? Hardly,BYU 31
Washington 3.As to the game against Michigan, BYU didn't have much
choice. They were tied to the Holiday Bowl and the HB lined up Michigan.
Cougars won; pollsters said they were champs (which is how it was decided back
then). You and Barry Switzer just need to get over it.
michigan was 6-6 because the team was decimated with injuries. they started 2-0
and was in the top ten. by the time the bowl season came around they were
healthy and back to their full strengh. If you need further proof look at 1985.
michigan with most of the same players finish in the top two of the poll. also
in 1985 byu played 3 teams that finished in the top ten final polls of 84. going
2-1. they clobber washington 31-3 and boston college 28-14. and the game with
ucla came down to the last play. so your statement that byu could not beat wash,
flor, oklahoma etc is your opion and is bunk. also 18 players from the 84 team
were drafted in the NFL.
I think you need a heartbeat in order to get accepted to the U. That school is
a community college with ash trays.
Do you honestly expect people here to be stupid enough to think that beating a
DIFFERENT team in a DIFFERENT year equates to "would have beaten them in the
previous year???" Sorry, people are not that stupid and everyone knows that the
team who eeked out a 4 point victory over a 6 loss, Big 10 3rd place team would

neutral field against an unranked opponent. Get over yourselves.
Only a ute would brag about their loss to TCU. They beat you so badly that the
subs were playing when you scored!
time of year. UTAH vs. BYU, Utah fans and Cougar fans talking smack about this
and that. Saturdays game is going to be awesome. Max Hall will leave as the QB
with the most wins in BYU history. Jordan Wynn will start his 4th game ever as a
QB. My guess is that the goal posts come down in LES on Saturday by the Cougar
Nation. Just a hunch...but I think that after they have witnessed a 3rd blowout
loss @ home this year they will rip the goal posts down 'cause they will never
want to see THAT kind of cougar football played again!!! The Legacy
Continues...The BCS dream is alive...the Cougars are the National Champs!! Silly
2 of 3 becomes 3 of 4! u will need to rebuild next year after losing 24
seniors as well!
I am so sick of 1984, and I attend BYU, that was forever ago! Grow up BYU fans
yall are weird, I guess that is Utah Valley though, I hate the place! Salt LAke
Valley is the bomb!
Really? Guess you didn't watch the Utah/TCU game did you. Because MWC
Defensive POY Jerry Hughes was in the game rushing the QB when Utah scored with
2:20 left in the game. As was the entire starting defense from TCU, still
blitzing. If you need proof of this, listen to Patterson after the
game. He was trying to get as many style points as he could by leaving his
starter in until under 2:00 in the 4th quarter. Words from his own mouth.You should really research things before declaring them accurate. Makes
you look really unintelligent otherwise.Our freshman QB scored 14
points MORE than "Heisman" Hall has in the last 2 years versus TCU. That's sad.
You sure about that?On offense, Utah loses David Reed and Zane
Beadles. That's it, for guys that make a difference.On defense,
Utah loses Johnson, Misi and Sylvester. Gaison and Wright have underachieved
all year. Dale is good, not great. On offense, BYU loses Hall,
Pitta, George, best OL, Tonga, and likely Unga to early entry.On
defense, BYU loses their entire front 7 and both starting safeties.As Hans Olsen stated last week, Utah will have a huge advantage over BYU next
year with what each team has coming back.Care to argue any more?
"Final top 20 below, does anyone really believe BYU would have beaten Washington
or FL or Nebraska or BC or Oklahoma???"YES!!!Washington beat Michigan 20-11BYU beat Michigan 24-17eight
months later, on September 14th, 1985, BYU played the Huskies and destroyed them

playing BYU in the Holiday Bowl to play Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl; the Huskies
chose $$$ over playing the #1 team for the National Championship.Oklahomatied 7-4-1 Texas 15-15lost to 5-6 Kansas 11-28lost

or BYU, which team was MOST deserving of winning the 1984 National
Championship?after all of the debates, EVERY poll picked BYU!!!
"Do you honestly expect people here to be stupid enough to think that beating a
DIFFERENT team in a DIFFERENT year equates to "would have beaten them in the
previous year???""And do you honestly expect people here to be
stupid enough to think that head-to-head competition between BYU and Boston
College and Washington the very next year means nothing in terms of relative
strength of the respective programs?Did Washington and Boston
College graduate all their starters in 1984? And are you claiming that BYU was
the indentical team in 1985 as they were in 1984?It's silly to claim
BYU wouldn't have beaten Washington or Boston College in 1984 because THEY
DIDN'T PLAY EACH OTHER IN 1984. When they did play each other -- with many of
the same players from the year before -- BYU won handily.Only a Ute
fan would refuse to acknowledge the significance of that.
Please stop comparing Utah's Performance against TCU to BYU's performance. Ute
fans mention that they put up 28 points against TCU, but fail to mention that
they were down 38-7 in the 2nd half! If we are going to compare the performance
of BYU/Utah against common opponents (which is ridiculous), then make sure to
include all 8 common opponents...Against the other 7 common
opponents, BYU has the overall advantage...BYU's average margin of
victory = 22.7Utah's average margin of victory = 18Teams that
BYU beat convincingly (5):Wyoming 52-0, USU 35-17, UNLV 59-21, AFA
38-21, CSU 42-23Teams that Utah beat convincingly (4):USU 35-17, UNLV 35-15, UNM 45-14, SDSU 38-7Teams with which BYU

Struggled (3):CSU 24-17, AFA 23-16 OT, Wyoming 22-10 (come from
behind 4th quarter win) * Most of you will think this post is
ridiculous as it should be when trying to compare two teams by common opponents.
THIS IS WHY THE GAME IS PLAYED ON THE FIELD!
If Washington was so much better: why didn't the Huskies win their own
conference championship; why was their score almost identical to BYU's score
against Michigan?If Oklahoma was so much better: why did the Sooners
lose to 5-6 Kansas?Florida was on probation: the Gators were never
part of the NC discussionIf Nebraska was so much better: why did the
Huskers lose to Oklahoma and 6-5 Syracuse?If Boston College was so
much better: why did they lose to 6-5 Penn State?
QB: BYU wins. It is good to support and believe in ones QB, but right now
Utah's QBs are simpluy not as good as Hall. Thats no garuntee he'll be the
beter QB on Saturday, but he probably will.RB: BYU. Unga and Wide
have almost identical numbers. Wide: 161 Carries 918 Yards. 12 Catches 71
Yards. Unga: 161 Carries 900 Yards. 13 Catches 106 yards. The difference is
in the backups. Shakerin is a good back up, but BYU has 2 good back ups who
both have more rushing AND recieving yards then Shakerin has rushing yards. Add
in Tonga's blocking abilities and BYU has the edge, though not a very big one,
in the RB department.TE: BYU. Pitta ang George have a combined 1072
yards and 11 TD.WR: Utah. This is a tough one to compare because of
1) BYU's QBs has thrown for 892 more yards and 2) Over half of BYU's recieveing
yards belong to TEs and RBs. I am going to have to give the edge to Utah in
this catagory. David Reed and Jeremy Brooks have been just to good to ignore.
The opinion that 1984 was 1984 and 1985 was... yes, a different year and
different teams is a fact. The opinion that BYU would MOST LIKELY have lost to
one of the top 5 teams in 1984 IS my opinion too! And happens to be shared by
most people with common sense! I did look! Michigan started 1-1,
they lost their second game on 09/15/1984 to 16th ranked Washington 20-11. I am over it... don't know about Barry. It was what it was and it is
considered a national championship... they "won" it. I am just using common
sense here... had they had to play the number two team, they almost certainly
would have lost. In my opinion of course.All I can say is while it
is still far from perfect, the BCS has made the national championship a little
more legitimate in that the "crowned champions" at least have to play a top
ranked team and we all owe that to BYU's 1984 team.
You've demonstrated that you know how to cut and paste, now show us that you've
got the intelligence to do some critical analysis.Tell us which
team, besides BYU, should have won the National Championship in 1984 and why.
Nope I won't argue, I have enough sense not to argue with someone who has done
their research and doesn't just spout out fairy tales and state as facts things
"they want to be true." LOL
I'm still laughing-you are that BYU fan who really has no clue. Oh well
ignorance is bliss:)
Attention Ute fans: NO rapping in Utah county.Sergeant Friday from American Fark
will be monitoring all Ute speech at the concession stands. 10-4 qver and out.
What's the argument?? Where was Utah in those polls? The only argument the
Utes had for those years was that they contributed to BYU's national
championship in 1984 and their #16 ranking in 1985 by losing to the Cougars in
both those years.Anyway, the past is gone. It won't make much
difference on Saturday. I'm pulling for the Cougars. But, based on both teams
performances this year, I expect that it will be a very competitive game. May
the best team (BYU) win.
Is that the winner of this game gets bragging rights the looser gets the better
bowl game. That is thanks to the mighty MWC president and his dumb TV deals and
idiotic bowl arrangements. Reality its a win win for both.. GO UTES
Didn't BYU have those same advantages over FSU? Didn't seem to help much as
their defense couldn't stop the Seminoles.BYU also had the more
gifted QB, RB and TE's in the 2008 BYU/Utah matchup. And the more gifted WR.
Offensive line: Slight edge to Utah. Stats: Sacks per 100 passes BYU 4.61 Utah
4.73. Yards per pass attempt BYU 9.34 Utah 7.56. YPC BYU 4.1 Utah 4.6. Overall Offence: BYU. Overall Defence: Utah. Utah's
defence simply has better athletes. In a position by position break down, Utah
takes almost every position on the defensive side of the ball.Summary:BYU has a better offence.Utah has a better defence. Everybody except for the most enthusiastic and unrealistic fans realize this.
The surprising thin is that in points scored and points allowed, the 2 teams
stats are very similar.Points scored (per game)BYU 35.55Utah 29.45Points allowed (per game)Utah 19.09BYU
21.55Who is the better team? We'll find out Saturday.
You make a good point! You Ute fans are already looking to next year, because I
guess you concede the game on Saturday. Yep, I can't argue with that!My team will speak for itself next season, and you will start talking about
the season after that.
What do you call 53 guys watching a BCS game?BYU football team.TDs you are going to get destroyed, your only chance is to give that
chick from New Mexico soccer team a position.
had two choices:1. play the #1 team in the country for less $$$ and
a chance to WIN the national championship2. play the #2 team for
more $$$ and HOPE that the voters would pick Washington IF they beat OklahomaWashington rolled the dice and won the game, and lots of $$$, but lost
the national championship.If you want to blame someone for BYU not
playing a ranked team in the Holiday Bowl, blame Washington and Nebraska, two
Top 5 teams who COULD have played BYU in the Holiday Bowl, but chose not to.(Note: Sure, traditionally, the Holiday Bowl is a less prestigious bowl
than the Orange Bowl, but who could argue that #1 versus #4 wouldn't have been
THE MOST prestigious bowl of 1984, regardless of the name of the bowl!)
If we are just talking about your lifetime, and you are less than 50 years old,
then the Cougars already have a winning record against your Utes during your
lifetime.Try 28 wins for BYU to your Utes 22 (the last 50 years in
the rivalry). Your Utes still have some catching up to do.Incidentally, Bronco and Whit are pretty even as wins and losses go. It is a
good rivalry with equally good teams for the time being. But "even" isn't
exactly what you want as a Ute fan who endured the 70's, 80's, and an even 90's
(rivalry-wise) and 00's (for the most part).It's funny how the Utes
have been waiting to surpass the Cougs for so long--to make up for a lifetime of
envy I guess. Congratulations for becoming as great as we are. But we all know
you are still waiting to be significantly better, as your life's memory shows
our team has been when compared to your team. Glad I'm on the better end of a
great rivalry. Thanks for keeping it interesting though, Utes.
What is the definition of disappointment?A Utah fan searching the
Utah football trophy case for Utah's National Championship trophy!
I love that BYU fans have to go back almost 25 five years to themselves relevant
in college football.
Fact: BYU's 1984 undefeated team beat 0 teams which finished the year
ranked.[BTW, for those who care, Utah's 2008 undefeated team beat 4
teams which finished the year ranked.]1984 voters had a choice,
basically, between BYU and Barry Swtizer's thugs at Oklahoma--an easy choice
with Lavell at the helm in Provo. I have tremendous respect for
what BYU accomplished in 1984, it's just that Bryant Gumble's "Bo-diddly Tech"
comment was accurate in terms of strength of schedule. No amount of hocus-pocus
about what happened the next year or the previous year changes that.
If I were a BYU fan I would be "really" hoping for a win this year
because....You are playing @ homeYour QB is a senior and is
pretty darn goodNext year you start over with a QB and you play both TCU
and Utah on the road (OUCH!!!)As I said, you better hope BYU can
pull a win out somehow on Saturday because it is going to be a while before the
Y has a decent offense again.If I were Bronco I would take my lead
from both TCU and Utah and GET A DEFENSE for your team. Both TCU and Utah have
such dominate defenses so that even in rebuilding years (offense wise) the team
still has a chance to win the MWC championship. BYU has a terrible defense and
must always depend on its offense to win championships. Whitingham and Patterson
both learned a few years back that DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS ... and DEFENSE
helps you win even in transition years. Bronco has yet to learn that lesson.
It's people like you that give BYU a bad name.Do you realize that
BYU is an LDS school? Do you realize that there are at least 1 million members
who are college age? How in the world is BYU supposed to accomodate all who
want to go there?My son was a student at the Y before his mission,
and I was grateful he was able to go there as it was his goal, but I would have
been equally as proud of him if he had chosen a different university. There are
great kids who attend the University of Utah.
BYU wins 48-30!The Cougars entered the stadium expecting to take a
quick lead, but they suffered early because of poor blocking up front. On the
second play of the opening drive Max Hall threw an interception to Mychal
Robinson that was converted into a touchdown just a few plays later.
Fortunately that was Hall's only pick! After Utah's touchdown BYU took control
of the game, scoring quickly and often to take a 41-17 halftime lead. A
lackluster third and fourth quarter resulted in a touchdown and two field goals
for Utah and a touchdown for BYU.Hall went 30 of 42 for 390 yards
and four touchdowns but was sacked five times during the game. Harvey Unga
carried the ball for 30 times rushing for 140 yards and two TDs. Utah was
unstoppable in the red zone but unfortunately for the Utes they only sniffed it
twice.After the game Cougar fans left the stadium in an orderly
fashion. No negative words were spoken or directed towards the University of
Utah fans. BYU again proved itself to be a class-act, truly worthy of the Las
Love the arbitrary "let me choose a date when wins before that don't matter"
approach to the BYU-Utah rivalry.How dare you make light of the
great BYU players of the past by pretending that BYU football didn't exist
before a certain date?Do you think the players who played against
Utah in the 1940s or 50s or 60s didn't care about the rivalry?My
uncle lost his pants helping tear down the goal posts the first time BYU beat
Utah. Another Uncle was a quarterback there in the 1940s. BYU players cared about the rivalry then; the administration cared; it
mattered very much who won and lost and anyone who thinks otherwise just doesn't
Regarding the ridiculous comment below:Straight from Wikipedia, who
would envy this?The 1984 NCAA Division I-A football season ended
with Brigham Young University winning their first national championship by
beating an UNRANKED Michigan team in the Holiday Bowl. BYU handed the Wolverines
their 6TH LOSS that season.Final top 20 below, does anyone really
believe BYU would have beaten Washington or FL or Nebraska or BC or Oklahoma???
NO!!!1-Brigham Young University2-WashingtonBYU
played Washington to start the next season and beat them so yes other they won
the National Championship UNDISPUTED and PROVED it the NEXT YEARDo a
little fact checking before believing wickipedia!
Jordan Wynn will be punished in Provo on Saturday, and the rest of those D-Bag
Utes!!!Go Cougars....Bring it to em!Its gonna be a B Y Utiful
Fact: Utah's 2004 undefeated BCS team beat 0 teams which finished the year
ranked in both polls.
Its gonna be a B Y Utiful DAY COME SATURDAY!!!Sorry Utes another loss to
the best team in Utah is just around the corner!GO Cougars!!!!!
Both BYU and Utah accept around 70% of students who applied in 2009 (BYU
accepted 74% and Utah accepted 69%). This is why I went to UCLA.
BYU's season in 1984 is the reason we have the BCS ... I'm happy they did
well that year and they won the national championship yet they weren't the best
team. probably not even in the top 5. now if they (or anybody else)
could somehow get us all out of this BSC mess? it's should be a good
game. on paper the two teams are pretty evenly matched. And stupid
goofy BYU fans don't come mess with me just because I'll be right in the middle
of thy BYU section wearing my UTAH jacket, I'm just there to enjoy the game not
beat you to a pulp ... but I will if you want -I'm 6'5" and 285 lbs. super idiot fanatical fans on both sides need to grow up and mellow out.
ummm utah...dominating Defense???...when?...which game this year has utah
dominated defensively?...oh...san diego state...i forgot...or maybe unlv...or
new mexico...oh you guys dominated on D against TCU as well...38 points in the
1st half for the horny toads is real dominating...BYU's D is equal to if not
better than utah's and here is why!!!...shutout wyoming didnt have to come from
behind in the 4th quarter...allwed 38 pts to tcu ALL GAME not in the first half
alone...dominated airforce...didnt even have to take it to OT...we blasted
Colorado state and shut down the heisman trophy winner...(yes he went out in the
1st half...but statistically...we had him owned!!!!)oh and not to mention...you
can sit and say we only won because he was injured...but ummm WE WERE THE ONES
WHO PUT HIM OUT!!! not that that is something i am proud of but that is
football...thats what happened...and WE beat Oklahoma...you played good against
oregon but lost we played awful against fsu...but my biggest statement..50+ pts
to TCU..nuff said...your D is NOT better than BYU
Utah's 2008 Sugar Bowl team defeated 4 teams who finished in the top 25.
Alabama, TCU, Oregon State and BYU.What's your point?The
2004 Utes defeated every opponent they faced by 14+ points. Something even TCU
hasn't managed to accomplish this year as good as they are.
I think you need a sweet spirit in order to get accepted to the Y. That school
is a sunday school with bunny hutches.
Bronco Mendenhall, after living a full life, died. When he got to
heaven, God was showing him around when they came to a modest little house with
a faded Cougars flag in the window."This house is yours for
eternity," said God. "This is very special, not everyone gets a house up
here."The coach felt special, indeed, and walked up to his house. On
his way up the porch, he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a
3-story mansion that had a 50 foot tall flagpole with an enormous UTES flag, and
in every window was the UTE logo.The coach looked at God and said,
"God, I'm not trying to be ungrateful, but I have a question. I was a good
coach. I went to bowl games, sent a bunch of my players on to the pros, and I
turned around the entire BYU football program."God said, "So, what's
your question?""Well," said the coach, "Why does Kyle Whittingham
get a better house than me?"God responded, "Oh that's not
Whittingham's house, that's mine".
"Let the Universe tremble before the Mighty Utah Defence!!!!""BYU's
defence could keep a Jr. High team out of the endzone!"Do those
phrases sound familiar? Lets look at how many points other teams are averageing
against these 2 teams.Utah 19.09BYU 21.55Wow!
That gap is HUGE!!! Oh wait. Actually it appears to be less then a field goal
difference. Feel free to check the math.
chokes as usual, and a not-so-great Utah team (as compared to last year)suprises
everyone, including themselves, winning by a margin of 40+ points. Either BYU
will get so hyped upf rot his game they fall down just coming onto the field, or
they think they are so much better, they don't practice all week and just watch
film, and then come out and wonder how they got beat sooooo badly.
After reading all the comments, bottom line is I really don't like BYU. It is
hard too, because they are such self righteous people that think by the shear
fact that they win a game on 4th and 18 that they must be living more
righteously on and off the field! Get over yourselves, Cougars. I'll take the
eclectic group of the Utes over your self righteous little team any day.Go
KYLE, and GO UTES!
What's the difference between a carp and a ute fan?One is a scum sucking
bottom dweller and the other is a fish!
That may be one of the funniest jokes I have heard in quite a while!
For whatever difference it makes, the Pitt team Utah defeated in the Fiesta Bowl
ended the season ranked in one poll--which is one more ranked team that BYU's
1984 team beat. Oh, yea, but the Pitt team BYU defeated was ranked
when BYU played them--but, then Pitt finished 3-8 that year. Kinda like what
happened this year to the Oklahoma team BYU beat to start the season.
If your precious Ute's are so much better than BYU then why can't they follow up
last season with another undefeated season and give some validity to program and
to the conference instead of showing what last season really was; a fluke
season? Why can't they consistently beat our slow white Mormon boys? Fluke wins
over Oregon State and home and an even flukier win over TCU at home show that
your shaky-at-best greatness won't repeat again. Thank goodness at least we have
real-deal BCS buster in TCU. You'll never win a national championship. 2, 10, or
even 1,000 BCS wins still doesn't equal a national championship so keep dreaming
Yewtes. Cougars by 21.
You're spot on. Oklahoma is definitely 3-8, not 6-5, and they play in the big
east against crappy competition not the Big-12, and they played with their
Heisman Trophy winning QB in every game except BYU, not the other way around,
and even without said Heisman Trophy winner they got blown out by Texas (a
veritable lock for the NC game) by like 50 points not just by 3, right? Yeah, Oklahoma is a pretty sucky win for BYU, but I guess we can't go
back and unschedule it to play a powerhouse like Louisville now can we?
Now, I have heard of yewt fans stretching for excuses to try and prove why their
team is "superior", but COMPARING THE TCU GAME?! C'mon, now that is even
pathetic for yewt fans! In case there are still yewts fans that believe Utah
will crush BYU just because they were able to score 28 against TCU, consider
this:1. A few minutes into the 2nd quarter, TCU had a 35-7 lead.
2. Whomever believes that TCU was REALLY playing hard (including Jerry
Hughes) after that lead is being delusional. I don't care who you are, Players
start shutting down when leading by that much.3. Jordan Wynn was not that
impressive... 16/32for 219 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT.*If you're going to
try to convince BYU fans that you are truly superior, then please use a
different example other than a 55-28 beat down. Bottom line, yewts are
stretching for anything because they know another beat down is coming this
Saturday and they have to get a few words in before it does.
This ought to be fun. I hope it's a close one.Utes land 4-5 long
passes and pick off Hall 2 times.BYU offense continues to roll,
however.Hall throws for 350 yds, Unga rushes for 110 yds.BYU: 35,
UofU: 28Good luck to both teams.
To anonynmous 3:03The Ute Fans keep talking about self
righteous BYU Fans, but I have to be honest...In the 7+ years that I have been
paying attention to this neck of the woods (college) football, since the recent
success of the Utah Program, Utah Fan has become arrogant and ignorant towards
Programs in their own conference and out, they try to discredit other Programs
successes and expect fans of other Schools to respect their Program's RECENT
success. If the Football program continues to win and put quality players into
the NFL, they will enjoy National respect from fans.
Funny...I didn't see the University of Utah on either of the lists of teams
ranked in the top 20 either year?
Utah was behind TCU 38-7 ONLY 19 MINUTES into the game! That's the beginning of
the 2nd QUARTER...yeah the Ute defense was amazing that night.
BYU did not win the national championship in 1984. There was no national
championship game played that year. It was a freakin' subjective judging contest
like synchronized swimming or ice skating. UTAH BY 5!!!!
"For whatever difference it makes, the Pitt team Utah defeated in the Fiesta
Bowl... "placed 25th in ONE POLL.now, that's a
juggerNOT!!!Pitt TIED for 1st in the Big Least, with THREE other
teams in a 7-team league.Over half the conference tied for the

(11-1) finished 2003 ranked 7th with an 11-game winning streak that included
wins at #13/#15 Air Force and at #17/#13 UCLA. Utah (10-2) finished 2003 ranked
21st with no wins over Top 25 teams.
BYU is obviously the better team this year. I'm not even nervous for the game.
I can't think of anything that Utah has that is a major threat. Sorry Utah, but
you're going down easily. It is what it is.GO COUGARS!!!
Wow, these comments epitomize stupidity. Honestly folks, it's the same thing
over and over again. No one learns anything from the other's perspective and
absolutely no one ever changes their mind about their position. Why do we do
this?? I'm done wasting my time. BYU had their shot last year to
ruin Utah's BCS bid and failed to do so. This year, the game simply means
NOTHING. Turn off the computer and go spend the extra time with your
families...that's what really counts.
Isn't that funny, all along according to Ute fans from previous postings, you
would think that BYU never won a game against Kyle.
Utah 38BYU 24You heard it here first!!!
I get tired of this arguement. BYU is light years ahead of the yewts in
football. Two good years in the last 100 does not a tradition make. We fill the
stadium every week, raise more money from our boosters, and have classier more
mature STUDENT athletes. Regardless of the outcome, WE outclass the U every
year. The Cougs will come out victorious this year by blitzing the young Wynn
to death and completely shutting down the run! Take it to the bank baby!
Holding comments until after the Cougars Kick the Utes Saturday!
Lets face facts shall we. If BYU was playing this years TCU team on the road
the game would have been over by kickoff.Against teams with 7+ wins
on the road TCU was:@ 8-3 Clemson 14-10@ Air Force 20-17and ... drum roll please....@ 9-2 BYU 38-7TCU
whopped Utah but if anyone thinks BYU has a better defense needs to explain how
a 6-5 FSU team steamrolled BYU at LES?Can someone name a team in the
top 25 that has been PUNKED twice at home by 26+ points?
Bayroot-em | 6:50 p.m. Nov. 23, 2009I get tired of this arguement. BYU is
light years ahead of the yewts in football.Only if you live in the
bubble. The rest of the nation says Utah has passed TDS over the last decade.
That's like saying ND and MI are great program today over Cincinnati.
In 2006 and 2007 when BYU was winning MWC titles yet needed LUCKY to pull out
wins over mediocre Utah teams. Yet you think BYU will blow out a ranked Utah
team this year just becasue TCU did? FYI you're not TCU nor Oregon. My memory seems to fade be so can someone tell me when was the last time
BYU beat Utah by 14+ points like Utah did to BYU:2004 52-212008 48-24
I am a Ute fan. Over the years in conversations with Cougars fans the 1984
National Championship often comes up. I have come up with a nice way to handle
that great year. I first point out the things that have been mentioned, the
lack of any quality wins. I then make the statement that based on the way the
College Football System that was in place at that time, BYU deserved to be the
National Champions. My Cougar friends generally feel like I have given into
their "Our program is better than yours" mindset. I then mention that the
system has now changed, which they cannot argue. I then point out that Utah has
had two undefeated seasons since 1984 and that in one of them they were like
BYU, the only undefeated team in the country. At that point I mention that its
to bad the system that BYU won their National Championship in was not in place
when Utah went undefeated. They are generally at a loss for words as it is very
easy to see at that point that Utah would have a National Championship and share
of a second title with that system.
Clara Peller is featured in the "Where's the Beef?" commercial campaign
for Wendy's Restaurants for the first time."Where's the Beef?" could
also be used to ask of BYU's football schedule of that year.
Tired of hearing 1984 vs. 2004/08. I really don't care. At all. And I think most
people don't. It's a NC from before my birth, and the birth of most of the
student body at both universities. And I don't care about '04/'08, either. I
care about '09 and which BYU team we see. Hall has been consistent, or more
consistent, since the TCU loss, and the interceptions have gone way down. They
are still happening, but not at 4+ a game. BYU and U of U are pretty evenly
matched. I give the edge to BYU because these boys can put together an
outstanding football game when their emotions are strong.
I can't believe how much ignorance is spewed from both sides. Can we please just
be civil? Is it worth embarrassing yourselves? I don't think it is. Next year is
next year. This is 2009. We'll see who has 10 wins on Saturday. I predict BYU in
a close game. A win is a win, whether it's by 1 point or 100. BYU dominated AFA,
TCU didn't. Both won. Neither of those scores dictated the outcome of the TCU
vs. BYU game, did it? 52-0 vs Wyoming and 22-10 for the Utes vs. Wyoming doesn't
mean anything. 11/28 means something. I think BYU is the better team. I think
Whit and Bronco are equally good coaches. I think Hall is a better QB, but the
Utes have more weapons on defense. And speed isn't as deadly as we're always
threatened with. Play with heart, Cougars, and you'll take the win. I don't
think BYU will have an issue getting up for this game.
1984 was also the year that "The Love Boat" was the number 1 show on television.
Also, most stereos still came with an 8 track. 1984 was also the year that
Indian Prime Minister, Gandhi, was assassinated. Man, that was a
long, long, long time ago. It sure is fun to live in the past.
No, the biggest difference between the 2004 Utah team and the 1984 Utah team is
that every one of Utah's 2004 games was over in the 3rd quarter, except the game
against AF--which ended mid way through the 4th quarter. Utah steam-rolled
every team it played in 2004. On the other hand, BYU's 1984 team
had 4 "close" games (by Dick Harmon's 25-year anniversary account) -- which is
similar to Utah's 2008 undefeated team. Except that BYU played 0 teams in 1984
which ended the year ranked and Utah played 4 teams which finished the year
ranked, including 2 in the top 10.I give BYU lots of credit for
winning the beauty contest that was the national football "championship" in
1984. Certainly better BYU than Barry Switzer.But,
there is no comparison between what BYU accomplished in 1984 on the field
against ranked competition to what Utah accomplished in 2008. Similarly, there
is no comparison between BYU's 1984 season and Utah's 2004 season where Utah
dominated every game it played.

my dad was a byu fan. he went to school there. but none of his 7 kids went
there. however, now most of his grandchildren are going to byu. whats up with
that?I am a proud utah fan. And i wish the best to Utah in this match.
Is open in the soup line.
what makes me think we can win is David Reed running wild on your secondary all
1996 was the last time BYU beat Utah by more than 7 points. 2008
was the last time Utah beat BYU by more than 7 points.Sorry Cougar
fans, but as recent history shows, if this game is a blowout, it will be the
Utes sitting their starters in the 4th quarter. If it's close, BYU has a 50/50
chance of winning.Those are just the facts.
Is still open making significant contributions on the NFL's best team. What's
Johnson up to?
Bronco has a lot riding on this game. I fear if he loses, he will be run out of
I just heard a scary rumour that a couple of starters may be out for Saturday's
game due to the flu. Let's cross our fingers.
Is that all you got? How's Mr. Reed gonna run wild all over BYU's secondary when
Mr. Wynn will be plucking grass out of his facemask? Remember Mr. Heisman
Trophy winner Sam Bradford? A much better QB than Mr. Wynn by a long shot. Utes
go down flaming red in the face looking forward to another re-building year next
year: BYU 42 UU 21
