    What's with the PAC disrespecting the Utes?

    While Utah State plays Boise State on CBS Sports Network and BYU plays Georgia Tech on ESPNU, the Utah/Stanford game is banished to the PAC Net.

    Looking forward to rushing the field after we win 32 to 27.

    This Saturday will long be remembered as the night we truly established ourselves as a Pac 12 power.

    SportsFan,

    Whats with byu jumping on the bandwagon of the Pac 12 teams that Utah plays. Does it have something to do with your inability to beat us?

    This Saturday may long be remembered as the 3rd consecutive 0-3 (all at home) start in the PAC. What are we, 3-27 on 3rd down in our last 2 games, plus 6 INTs against UCLA? We will probably need to hold our field rushing for Colorado in the annual pillow fight again this year.

    I know of more people that get the PAC-12 Networks than ESPNU or CBS Sports. Currently in the midwest United States, I get the PAC and the U because I pay a few extra bucks for them, but still do not get CBS Sports. So your comment makes no sense.

    I live in the midwest and I get CBS sports and Espn U but no pac 12 networks it probably varies everywhere.

    While struggling to convert on 3rd downs, they've still been in the games because they're essentially leading the country in converted big plays.

    Connect on a few more 3rd downs, and the Utes will be just fine.

    @jarka-rus:

    0-4. bahahaahaahahahaahahhaahahahhahaha

    "What's with the PAC disrespecting the Utes?"

    It has nothing to do with the PAC-12 disrespecting the UTE's. It has more to do with the networks and broadcasting games that will attract the highest number of viewers. Utah just isn't that much of a draw outside of Utah and not even the draw and clout of a Stanford can make up for a national audience not being interested in a game where Stanford blows out a much weaker opponent. So, the game gets put on the PAC-12 network and a regional broadcast.

    Simply put, viewers outside Salt Lake City see the Utah/Stanford game the same way the see a Wichita State/Alabama game; there's simply no reason to watch a game where the outcome is already known. That's not entertainment. It's just boring.

    Chris B,
    Kind of like you are for every team BYU plays!!! Biggest game of the year so far and in your house and you still are obsessing about a team and school you beat in September!!! I guess when beating BYU is once again your best win you want to relive your glory over and over!!!

    Go Cougs beat GT!!!
    Go Stanford thump Utah and silence the mighty MUSS!!!
