YIKES.. Cougs havinga rough day at home

Major national audience, but getting embarrassed on home field. Even if they somehow pulled off a win, giving up 52 points before 4th quarter really gets going, cannot look good to ANYONE.

That leprechaun guy has a lasting effect.

Not going to pile on. Utes could lose big tonight if those first two possessions are any indication.

OK, we all knew all along how this would eventually end, right :wink: :wink:, so, I propose we all get busy piling on now, ok?

Or just be indifferent to BYU. Don’t we have bigger and better things to celebrate?

Let’s talk about them when we play them again. If ever.
I guess that’s inevitable.
So be it.
Whatever.

Yeah probably, and personally I never do anything to BYU fans but smile (perhaps a little condescendingly) however, I watched way TOO many losses to “the Cougs” in the 70’s and 80’s, to not be tempted to pour a little on after an interesting weekend like this one.

Edit to say: I’m in counseling to get over it😀

I understand. I remember those days, especially the '80s. Ignoring them now is the best reproach IMO.

We dont need to pile on.
We need to be the best we can be.
This was a magical night. Because of the men on the field (and the women and men and community who believe in them) support them and also work and support the community we share.
Thats well enough.

Yes of course. And frankly, it was an after thought that I commented on the BYU thing, from the age-old perspective that I mentioned.

The reality is that my whole extended family household has nothing in mind tonight but the HUGE last minute win.

Go UTES!

I love the fact that we play like sportsmen.
It was a very, very close game.
The boys came back from remarkable odds, questionable reffing, self doubt and zero support from the announcers…
But they won.
On a very special night indeed.
May they win again, and again.
But if they don’t; may they be warriors, gentlemen and scholars.
That’s all we can hope for.

Football is a crazy sport.

The sheer magnitude of the emotional intensity last night. 53,000 present, who-knows-how-many pulling for Utah on TV.

The broadcast crew was beyond impressed with the energy & the Moment of Loudness.

40 miles south, Sitake has a very serious problem, the same one that drove Bronco out of town.

I’m on the same page as you but also gotta understand you live in Carolina. How often do you have to hear about BYU? I couldn’t imagine hearing their delusions 365.

Not much anymore. Every now and then some BYU fan sees our Utah gear or stickers and tries to say something. I just smile and tell them I’d rather lose as a Utah fan than live in the past like they do. If they’re friendly they’ll laugh and we change subjects. If they’re not, they grump off. I don’t see much BYU gear around here. Maybe if we lived in Raleigh or another bigger city we’d see more, but really only a bumper sticker once in awhile.

Distance does have a nice way of making being, more or less indifferent to BYU easier.

Yup. I don’t run into Auburn fans here but a ton of Tennessee and Ohio State. Thus my ire more for them. Geography matters.

I live in LA, and I couldn’t care less what BYU does. However, I admit to looking up their scores and laughing.
