    I have never been a Ute

    by SkinyUte
    2014-10-31 13:16:57

    Don't get me wrong, I've been a Utah fan since the day I was born. The first song I learned was Utah Man. Some of my earliest memories are going to Utah football and baskeball games with my dad. I remember getting beat up in grade school by some BYU bullies, then spitting blood on their shirts and telling them "I win because you've got red on you!". There was never a time when I wasn't a true Utah fan through and through.

    However, I am the only person in my entire extended family who did not attend the U. My wife, mom, dad, brother, father and mother-in-law, and three sisters-in-law all have their diplomas from Utah...but I never attended a class there. I thought about it, but was a pretty decent soccer player and the U doesn't have a mens soccer program. I got a scholarship to play at a DII school in Colorado, and it's tough to turn down a chance to get a free education. I keep thinking I need to go enroll in some sort of continuing education program at the U, just so I can say I actually attended the school.

    So it's not just students and alumni who the true Utah fans. There are at least a few of us who are diehard fans, even if we never step foot in a classroom up on the hill.

    A wise father

    My roots as a Ute fan...

    I am a third-generation Ute fan (at lease 3 - I'm not sure of my great-grandparents' allegiances). My grandfather was a professor of Urban Planning in the U's School of Architecture and a life-long Crimson Club member. My father has been a season-ticket holder at the U for my entire life. I've been taught from the womb to be a Ute. But...

    Once, in my immature and misguided youth, I told my dad I wanted to be a BYU fan (disclaimer: this was during the 80's when we were OWNED by TDS). Upon hearing these words, my dad looked at me and said, "Well, we don't allow BYU fans to live in this house. If you want to be a BYU fan, you will have to move out" (note: I was like 5 or 6 years old). Thinking I would show him that I was serious (and expecting he would back down), I went to my room and packed a bag. When I returned to the family room, I announced I was moving out. My dad looked at me and said, "good luck." I walked out the door and quickly realized he was serious... Since that day, I haven't wavered once in my allegiance to the U. IT WAS THE BEST LESSON MY DAD EVER TAUGHT ME. I am deeply thankful for a wise father.

    My Story

    by Big Kahuna
    2014-10-31 16:03:36

    Besides being a decent swimmer and water polo player (got to the U this way), I grew up with a penchant for:

    1. Tipping over old ladies in wheel chairs;
    2. Spraying beer on people wearing blue in stands
    3. Pushing blue wearing people down stairs.

    When I attended my first Zoob game it dawned on me that Ute fans were my kind of people. I have honed my heathen skills to Hall of Fame levels since then.

    Yes I am the one Max Hall hates. Life is good.

    Ute Fan Story for ml__lm

    by UtahUtes ml__lm
    2014-10-31 14:04:17

    I was one of those wishy washy Utah students that cheered for both teams (Now it just seems stupid) and after watching BYU beat Utah at home from the MUSS in 2006 I went to my chemistry class the next morning. The professor was a UCLA Alum and had a Utah Sweatshirt on and gave us a pep talk before getting back to moles and atoms.

    "When your team loses in a close game to your rival. Do you come to class and feel miserable? absolutely! but you wake up that morning and you put on your Utah gear. Your team put it all out there and came so close. You support your school no matter the outcome. You stand proud of your school."

    Man I had never felt such pride in the School I was attending. I have been proud to call myself a Ute ever since.

    The TDS hate came from serving a mission and having to deal with ridicule from their fans. Dang 2008 was fun to rub in their faces.

    Go UTES!!!

    Do you want to hear about my childhood?

    by UtahUteGuy
    2014-10-31 20:11:25

    Very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink, he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Some times he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy, the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical, summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds, pretty standard really. At the age of 12 I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum, it's breathtaking, I suggest you try it.

    I was a nematode in a prior life.

    by High Uintas

    I lived in the (then) grass of what is known today as Rice-Eccles stadium. During a critical play, the visiting team's running back was running for a first down. I surfaced from the grass allowing myself to be squished and causing the ball carrier to slip - short of the first down. As a reward, I was sent back as a Utes fan.

    True story.

    Hate to disappoint you dude, but in my book if you love the teams, cheer for the teams, are lifted when we win and fall when we lose, and if deep in your heart of hearts nothing gives you more pleasure that phrases like 'Burton blocked it!!', '54-10!', and 'Four in a row!', then you are a Ute.

    Raise your hands high and make the U with pride.
