    Default "Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated" - The Rivalry Thread

    One of the best things about BYU being the biggest story in college football so far this season is watching the reaction from Ute fans. Twitter and social media are comedy gold right now. In hindsight, it makes Chris Hill's comment a few weeks ago about Ute fans not caring about BYU especially funny. They care. A LOT.

    Use this thread to share fun anecdotes of the allegedly dead rivalry.

    BTW, UCLA obviously understands how deeply BYU is in Utah's head right now.

    There's this thread at UB5 with a couple thousand posts where Utes remind themselves of how over BYU they are. As a bonus you get to see LAU hyperventilating about mean and dirty BYU.

    Mean and dirty doesn't mean you can't be loved. Look at the Raiders.

    From Sancho:

    I agree. I vote for a merge. For those who are embarrassed that we talk about our rival sometimes, we can delete/erase/reset that thread every year or every month to make it look shorter. Personally, I don't care how long it is. It seems to really give tooblue a great deal of joy, and he probably could use all the joy he can get up there.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    That other thread is a disgrace. It's long and boring and anyone reading here sees that it is by far the most viewed on the site. Weak and lame for a Utah sports forum.

    LAUte with stadium smack.

    BTW, I failed to mention that our stadium is prettier. Beautiful sandstone beats battleship gray.*

    U-Ute (most unimaginative name ever) claims it's all big joke on BYU fans.

    Viking: you need to understand something. This thread is the bait
    that keeps the BYU fans from trolling all of the other threads.*

    Yesterday a couple of Utah season ticket holders were outside my door talking about how great the U's games have been, yet how frustrating it is that BYU has had these amazing endings to get all of the national publicity.

    Poor Gunther was having a fit insisting that the U's two wins are more impressive than BYU's - talking about beating a Big 10 team and a MWC team.

    Someone needs to remind him that the Big10 team BYU beat was on the road. And the MWC team BYU beat was ranked. Utah will have a good strength of schedule before it is all said and done, but thus far BYU's has got to be better.

    If they beat Fresno State by 70 they won't get any pub. That team is atrocious.

    Surely a team as highly touted nationally as the Utes wouldn't have to travel to a FSU team residing in California that just gotta the crap kicked out of them

    So Dude you revising your prior statements that you don't care about Utah or the rivalry anymore?

    I look forward for Surfah who doesn't "give a shit" about the Utes joining in on this thread soon.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    You know what else you will find in that thread? wally consistently reminding Utes that the rivalry is alive and well. My prediction when it was announced that the rivalry would cease, was that the game when it resumed would be ferocious (I think that hostile predicted the same). I stand by this prediction. There will be so much pent up hostility involved, that it will seem like Armageddon. It will be awesome. I expect some injuries, on the field and off.

    The rivalry is still pretty fun outside of the state of Utah. In fact, just last night I invited a friend over to watch the UCLA game on Saturday night...we'll flip to it during the commercials of the Utes game or something.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    GREAT POINT. Cougs that have been channeling "post PAC12 nouveau riche Utes" and claiming that they no longer care about Utah or the rivalry can stfu and esad.

    BYU fans claim to not care about the rivalry? I don't remember Holmoe issuing a statement that the BYU fan base doesn't want to play Utah, while a contract to actually play Utah was on Chris Hills desk.

    YES! A thread to talk about the greatest rivalry in all of intermountain-based team sports! I've been waiting for this day to come for almost two years now. Thanks Jeff Lebowski! And as a gesture of friendship and outreach to the Cougar community, I invite all those brave souls who dare tread on the holy-of-holies (yea, verily, Rice Eccles Stadium) to join me at halftime for a friendly handshake. Godspeed!


    Fun Fact: Did you know that when the game is played next year, seven years, nine months, and thirteen days will have elapsed since BYU beat Utah? That's a lot of pent up angst.
