I thought he played dang good.
Dear Max,Our seniors are about to complete the career 4-0 SWEEP over
your former team. Your team hasn't beaten us since your rant.Karma is a beast
Dear Chris,Max is getting paid to play football. When was the last
time you pulled in a check as a professional athlete?Reality is a
christyThe truth is your freshmen are about to start a career
winless streak against your rival.Get used to the couch potato
bowl.Reality is a beast.
@ Snack WACWishful thinking by a desperate fan base down south. You
cannot base one season on how our future will play out. Utah will have up years
and down years just like every other BCS school in the country. Get
used to another loss in September which will complete the 4-0 sweep against our
little brothers. Which reminds me of the last time Utah swept the Cougars, it
was from 2002-2005. Both these sweeps will have happened in the modern BCS era
of football. It will be a long two years before you get another chance to play
the Utes.Reality is a beast!
Elmer Fudd,In their minds the byu "fans" will count the 2
years not playing as wins. They are very good at keeping the Reality Beast at
Example of pure Karma; “I don’t like Utah. In fact, I hate them. I
hate everything about them. I hate their program, their fans. I hate
everything." Max HallTwo days later Max high tailed it out of
Provo to begin his career that never was.
@Jeff29..."Dear Chris,Max is getting paid to play football. When
was the last time you pulled in a check as a professional athlete?"My guess is about the same time you did.Reality is a beast.
Elmer Fudd"You cannot base one season on how our future will
play out."No more so than Utah fans can base Utah's future
on two flash-in-the-pan seasons.The hard truth is Utah has been a
mediocre to bad program for most of their history; only 6 WAC/MWC championships
in 49 years and only 5 AP Top 25 finishes in their entire history is proof of
that.Your first two years in the PAC are NOT an anomaly,
they're Utah's new reality.Get used to it.
Snack PAC,The hard truth is that Utah has owned byu on the field for
most of their history.Utah's reality will always be a beast for
snack PAC--"No more so than Utah fans can base Utah's
future on two flash-in-the-pan seasons."How many undefeated
seasons in byu's history? How many in The U's?3 straight,
4 of 5, 8 of 11, 13 of 20 and the insurmountable overall record, 56-34-4=Owned!
"Much like his first NFL start, former BYU quarterback Max Hall earned his
first start in the CFL because the quarterbacks previously in front of him on
the depth chart had done little to manufacture offensive output or wins.""But Hall also turned the ball over three times, including two
second-half interceptions."Utterly priceless! Some things never
change!Embarrassing that he played for my H.S. S/h stayed-put at
ASU and followed in the legendary footsteps of his late great grandfather,
Whizzer, and his uncle Danny.
@ekute... "The hard truth is that Utah has owned byu on the
field for most of their history"... Now that is funny... Did you
read that out loud to yourself after you wrote it??? Were you able to keep a
straight face?...LOL...Here's the actual stats for the past 50
years by 10 year increments:2003 through 1012 BYU 3 Wins/ Utah 7
Wins1993 through 2002 BYU 4 Wins/ Utah 6 Wins1983
through 1992 BYU 9 Wins/ Utah 1 Win1973 through 1982 BYU 9 Wins/
Utah 1 Win1963 through 1972 BYU 4 Wins/ Utah 6 WinsGrand Total for the past 50 years... BYU 29 Wins and Utah 21 Wins...Now I don't claim to be the world's best mathmatician, But simple
arithmatic tells me that 29 is more than 21 and that BYU won 16% more of the
contests between the two schools...If BYU wins this year (and most
FBS experts say that that is going to be what happens) then BYU will have won an
even 30 out of the last 50 years (or 60 % of the contests). "Utah has owned BYU"?... Ummm, I don't think so.
When asked how he felt about losing to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats by almost 3
touchdowns, Max replied "I hate them. I hate everything about them. I hate
their fans, their program! I hate everything (about them)!"Apparently Max still has a lot to learn.
@poymanUh, aren't you forgetting something? Like the first 50
years of the rivalry?
poyman,I'm no good at math either. What's the percentage
of 3 in a row?
Utes still have an inferiority complex and Max is still in the Ute fan's
heads.Reality is a beast. LOL
@ go redSo you want to count games played with leather helmets and
no face guards??? Back when football wasn't even a sanctioned school sport
for BYU simply a "club sport"??? LOL...Well then yes, you owned BYU in
Football back then.... LOLOL... Your great and possibly great-great,
grandparents would be proud of you for counting their era, the period of time
when BYU didn't even have a school built football field...LOL.@ekuteNot as much as 9 in a row (1979 through 1987), and not as
much as 5 in a row (1972 through 1977), and not even as much as 4 in a row(1989
@ekuteI missed the right keys on my computer... I meant to say...9 in a row... 1979 through 1987,6 in a row... 1972 through
1977, and 4 in a row... 1989 through 1992...There, now
that I have corrected the type o's I feel much better.
AZUTE1During how many of Utah's "undefeated" seasons
was Utah ranked?It's laughable the hyperbole Utah fans are
forced to use when their so-called "accomplishments" turn out to be
nothing more than a whole lot of mediocrity. Like one mediocre team beating
another mediocre in a bowl, where neither team is good enough to be ranked.Bottom line:Utah only has FIVE AP Top 25 finishes in their
entire history. BYU has SEVENTEEN.Despite your hype, BYU dwarfs U on
a national scale - it's not even close.Even during the
Bronco/Kyle era:Top 25 FinishesBronco 5Kyle 3AP Top 25 FinishesBronco 4Kyle 2Top 15 FinishesBronco 3Kyle 1Bronco has had almost as many AP Top 25
finishes in the last 7 seasons, as Utah has had in their ENTIRE history.The truth is, if U were really as good as you think you were, U would
have been ranked more often.
ekuteSimple MathFrom 1922 to 1993, the number of Utah
teams that beat BYU and were good enough to be ranked in the final AP Top 25:ZEROFrom 1922 to 1993, the number of BYU teams that beat
Utah and were good enough to be ranked in the final AP Top 25:TENDuring Utah's first CENTURY of football (1892 to 1993), Utah
didn't have a single win over BYU that was meaningful enough to be
recognized on a national scale.During BYU's first SEVENTY years
of football (1922 to 1993*), BYU had TEN wins over Utah that were meaningful
enough to be recognized on a national scale.BYU 10/69 > Utah
0/101Feel free to do the math.*BYU's football
program was suspended from 1942 to 1944.
AZUTE1Can you name the Big name, Big Boy schools that Utah beat in all
those early undefeated seasons? I think I will have to go on the Utah official
sports web site and find out just who Utah played and beat during all those
incredible earth shattering seasons!!! How many NC trophies does Utah have for
those undefeated seasons? How many NC trophies does BYU have for there
undefeated season? Thanks for playing!!! Go Cougs!!!Go Utes
except Sept. 21st!!!Go Aggies!!!
Way to Go Max. Keep working hard and you'll be fine.
