    I also don't like the name "Holy War." This has nothing to do with religion or anything holy. While the Utes are surely Godless cretins, what makes this war "holy?" The only thing religious is BYU's affiliation. Do the Utes admit they are the anti-Gods, or the anti-mormons, or the anti-religions? It's a dumb name. The name was created by idiot media people looking for a sound bite.

    Look, Utah is not that great. So they won the PAC-12 south. Big freaking deal. It's like being the tallest building in Clovis, New Mexico; a true fact but really not impressive at all.

    BYU will show up. The defense will rise and Wilson will perform. ALthough I would prefer BYU crush the Utes, I see a competitive game with BYU closing it out with a late score and a win.

    In the spirit of Tom Holmoe and Dr. Chris Hill's replacement, I'll tone down the rivalry rhetoric and say something nice about the U. It's an incredible honor that President Donald Trump looks to them for advice on science. It really speaks to the quality of this fine PAC12 research institution that it's the place where Donald Trump sources his scientific experts. Congrats to the U for doing their part in making America great again!

    Agree with this but for different reasons. Holy War connotes a war between religious kingdoms or empires. The Univeristy of Utah is not religious. On the contrary. It’s nothing if not a secular institution. “Holy War” doesn’t fit. It’s stupid.

    it's not a war, it's a football game. calling it a war is an insult to actual war, the tragedy and sacrifice that are a result of such. a player in this game might sprain his ankle or pull a hammy.

    I am curious what LAdouche thinks about gator rolls now that Utah is the dirtiest team in the country with all the targeting calls. He still doubled down after all the evidence of the NFL teaching that technique because it was safer. Then again, I wouldn't expect him or a second rate doctor in rural Utah like JIC to know much about football.

    BYU is going to absolute beat the shit out of Utah on Saturday. The streak ends, and a new one begins!

    Zach Wilson will not only carve up that overrated, BYU reject filled, Utah Defense. But he will piss on his uncles grave when he is done.

    SMR, just pretend you were mocking LA Ute and you have an easy out for that dumb post.

    This is even better than "stripling warriors," because although it also dares to compare college football players to men who fought, bled and died for freedom, it does so with reference to men who did so only a few years ago.

    That's why it's so funny. Woot pointed it out and LA Ute couldn't believe it:

They're playing a game, for heaven's sake, not fighting for their lives. It's just cheesy.

    (If you think that Bronco, in adopting this campaign, is thinking about Henry V, then you have a high opinion of him indeed. I know that many of those who post here wince when they see Bronco pull stuff like this.)

    And, although I hate to shatter woot's illusions about being the smartest, best-read kid in the room, I can recite the high points of the St. Crispin's Day speech from memory. It was a Neal Maxwell favorite, which I am sure makes it all the more significant to the wootster.
