I hope the Cougars find some defense. Please tell me that the Utah
Statesman is a school paper.
Prime opportunity for the Aggies to demonstrate their class, or lack thereof.
I'm an Aggie fan and I'm pretty embarrassed by the article in the statesman. It
wasn't thought out at all. I'm hoping that USU will win this game but both
teams have a lot of questions that still need to be answered. The Spectrum will
definitely play in USU's favor and I hope that is enough.
"Blue roundup: BYU basketball team will face hostile crowd at USU"===I believe this is a hostile crowd that BYU deserves.Classless message on the Jumbo-tron last year.
IDC"Please tell me that the Utah Statesman is a school
paper."Isn't that blatantly obvious?
Sold out crowd. The Spectrum will be rocking so loud that they will feel
tremors in Utah county. Get ready to rumble.Go Big Blue!!!
Veritas Aequitas Why should BYU's basketball players be subjected to
hostility because of the stupidity of one fill-in scoreboard operator whose
message was quickly erased and for which BYU quickly appologized? Obviously you
don't believe in the axiom to forgive and forget.

believe in reality.
Veritas AequitasI have no problem accepting reality; I just don't
have any tollerance for excusing boorish behavior. I was as disgusted with the
inappropriate message posted on the BYU scoreboard as I was with the vile chants
of Aggie fans in the ESA a couple of years ago.
Truth MachineIt is college basketball. College students having a
great time. If you have too little tollerance for such boorish behavior and
vile chants perhaps you should stay home for some crumpets and a spot of tea old
man.I am guessing you're not too fond of the Aggie spirit shirts.
"Show them your A game" and "Hail Utah State Aggies".It will be a great game. Go Aggies!!!
That prediction was ridiculous. Sounds like whoever route it was a homer homer
Why isn't this game on TV outside of Utah? C'mon BYU-TV run that HD truck up to
Logan and pick up this game. I went to both schools and would love to see these
two great teams go at it.
Runner:I agree. If BYUtv can make it all the way to Oregon, why not
to Logan? I want to view the game in L.A.
It's on ESPN3
Sorry, Go Big Blue!!!, but most of the students at Utah State are LDS and they
know when they've crossed the line from having a good time to vile and boorish.
Someday when you grow up you'll understand the difference.
SCCougar:Thanks for the info.
"I am guessing you're not too fond of the Aggie spirit shirts."I couldn't care less about the t'shirts Aggie fans wear, but I do find
it curious that almost as many Aggie fans wear anti-BYU shirts as wear pro-Aggie
shirts, but I've never seen a BYU fan wearing an anti-USU shirt.
Truth Machine | 3:16 p.m. Nov. 10, 2011 Salt Lake City, UT "Veritas AequitasI have no problem accepting reality; I just
don't have any tollerance for excusing boorish behavior."===My advice then is to find a pillow, a blanket and a nice PBS movie,
because the BYU team is in for, as the article suggested, a "Hostile
Crowd"."Tollerance" [sic] or not, it's coming.Let's see if BYU can play above it. I have seen both of BYU's preseason
games at the MC up close, and while I think the team has solid prospects, they
have not played a Stew coached team. If they had problems with Jon Judkins, they
will have their hands full.Sorry there Bubba, get ready for boorish
Veritas AequitasGet real. Every team that plays in the Spectrum is
subjected to the same boorish behavior. Pretending that it results from some
perceived former injustice is simply naive. The Aggie student section has acted
this way for decades.
Almost 50 and hope to never grow up. National broadcasters that
attend a game in the Spectrum are awestruck at the amazing Aggie student
section. I can understand your distaste for having to play in Cache Valley. It
isn't fun being the losing team. Last I checked Stew in the Spectrum was 193 to
13. Go Big Blue!!!
I was at the game at the ESA a few years ago. I have no idea what you are
talking about as far as chants. Please fill us all in. The thing I
remember from that game is that all the BYU students I was with were telling me
how pathetic their fans are in comparison to USU (no joke).Don't be
so thin skinned! Everything that the student section does is in good fun, and in
no way harmful to the players (unless they have the worlds most fragile ego).
Have you EVER played sports?It should be a good game. Can't wait to hear
the student section and the "Winning Team" chant.
Go Big Blue!!!Stew has a great record in the Spectrum, but
unfortunately, it's been built mostly on cupcakes. Even this year, instead of
facing Jimmer, Jackson, and Davies, you're facing a rebuilding BYU team with
nine freshmen on the roster.I suspect that Stew's record wouldn't be
nearly as good if he'd had to face BYU, Utah, SDSU, UNLV and New Mexico
home-and-home every season.
Ragnar DanneskjoldI was also at the BYU-USU in the ESA and I'd be
happy to quote exactly what the USU student section was chanting, but it would
never get past the DN censors.
I could tell you countless horrible things that BYU fans have said to me and my
team. I will never have to prove it because I can hide behind the
"censors", but just take the word of an anonymous poster on a board
known for baseless comments. See, I can do it too.
Criticizing boorish Aggie fans is an exercise in futility. Go up to Cache Valley
and play a good game, win or lose. Being an Aggie fan is its own punishment.
The boorish behavior doesn't bother me, I just find it amusing, and telling.
Go the people complaining about the Statesman article.. there were 2 articles,1
for USU 1 for BYU. They left out the one for BYU in the Des News. Plus its a
school paper.... chill
