    Did I ever mention I grew up a byu fan?

    by H-man

    Probably not, because I will flat out call you a liar if you ever bring it up (which includes bringing it up after this).

    When we lived in Provo my dad would take me to as many home games as he could afford. I loved spending time with him so naturally I learned to love football and going to games with him, despite the fogginess of those memories as I was under 10, I still love to think about those times with him.

    We moved up to SL in June of 1998 and after a long summer of my brothers picking on me, we went to the first ever game in Rice-Eccles Stadium. I can still vividly remember that game, where we sat, the time of day, the crowd noise, even that stupid horn (akin to a vuvuzela) he brought in. These are precious memories to me now that he isn't all there. But rest assured that before his stroke he became a true Utah Man and like me, denied any fealty to byu, despite our religious affiliation.

    Anyway, I was just thinking about how glad I am to be a Utah Man here and not over there bemoaning the fate of another lost season in the Quest for a Conference.

    Hey, Go Utes!

    DID YOU KNOW: Jeremiah Poutasi has played 487 snaps (this season) while allowing just two sacks. #GoUtes

    Time for me to brag just a little..those U of U medical students that just came up with the new catheter...well one is my nephew

    Nate Rhodes is one of the students and he is my nephew.

    In fact he came up with the idea while talking to his favorite aunt, my wife. She has been the IV specialists for years and they got talking one day and he picked her brain about this whole thing.

    I just hope she gets some sort of royalties.

    I thought he was about to go Chris Farley show, "Madison, do you member when you won the mvp award of the world series tonight? That was awesome."

    Utah & ASU vs UCLA/USC

    by SportUTE
    2014-10-29 18:23:14

    A quick summary of how each unit on the teams have done against the two (best) common opponents:


    Utah/ASU on Defense:

    UCLA@ASU 580 Yards, 1 Sacks , 62 Pts , 0 T/O, 9.35 Yards/Point
    UT@UCLA 406 Yards, 10 Sacks , 28 Pts , 1 T/O, 14.5 Yards/Point

    ASU@USC 493 Yards, 3 Sacks, 34 Pts, 0 T/O, 14.5 Yards/Point
    USC@UT 364 Yards, 2 Sacks, 21 Pts, 2 T/O, 17.3 Yards/Point

    Utah/ASU on Offense:

    UCLA@ASU 626 Yards, 1 Sacks , 27 Pts , 4 T/O, 23.2 Yards/Point
    UT@UCLA 342 Yards, 3 Sacks , 30 Pts , 0 T/O, 11.4 Yards/Point

    ASU@USC 541 Yards, 2 Sacks, 38 Pts, 0 T/O, 14.2 Yards/Point
    USC@UT 331 Yards, 2 Sacks, 24 Pts, 2 T/O, 13.8 Yards/Point

    A few takeaways...

    On offense ASU outgained Utah by almost 250 Yards/Game yet only scored 5 more points/game. Utah is much more efficient on offense due to the run game emphasis shortening the play count.

    ASU has given up 150 more Yards/Game and a whopping 23.5 more points/Game. Utah's defense much better at preventing scores (eventually) than ASU.

    Utah was +0.5 T/O per game net, ASU was -2.0 T/O per game net

    ASU will most likely outgain Utah by 60-100 yards but between drive killing sacks, winning the T/O battle, and Special Teams Utah will shine. Washington got 7 sacks against ASU (the Nations' #2 behind Utah). Expect ASU to emphasize the quick passing game like USC did to mitigate Utah's pass rush.

    ASU gets 2 TDs and 3 FGs
    Utah gets 3 TDs and 3 FGs

    30-23 Utes

    Yes. Last year. Then somebody (sorry, forgot who) on this board took the time to analyze our team's average age vs. theirs...

    And guess what, ASU was older. And not just by a little bit, it was pretty significant. This is classic/typical Graham. Couple it with the fact that he still doesn't even know our coach's name...he is the biggest douche nozzle in the conference, and ranks right up there in the country IMO.

    I mean the guys exact words were:

    "Thanks, Madison, as the official sponsor err the official vehicle of Major League Baseball, Chevrolet is proud to participate in this uh prestigious award. Um, along with our dealers we are also extremely honored to give back to this sport uh by supporting baseball in cities and towns across this nation. At Chevrolet we have uh we have also been proud of the latest and greatest uh technology in our truck lineup, which is the all new 2015 uh Chevy Colorado. Um, it combines class winning and leading um you know technology and stuff with wifi powered by Onstar. Sitting there on the screen, to recognize your performance in this 2014 World Series, I proudly present to you, your very own set of keys (struggles to find keys in pocket) to a brand new 2015 uh Chevy Colorado. Congratulations." Now picture a balding dude about 350 sweating and stuttering his way through, looking at a note card in his hand that is clearly so sweaty everything is smudged. Greatest presentation EVER!!!

    They were not prohibited from recruiting. The number of players they could sign was reduced.

    I have no idea what they did with all the extra cash.

    The theological issues that this raises is that, 1) righteousness is a behavior, 2) righteous behavior should come with a reward.

    by DownhereUte

    Neither of these statements is ever made in the bible. You may be frustrated that these people share your religion, but these theological beliefs aren't unique to byu.

    RE: Perhaps that qualifies as humor in the MWC?

    Grabs pop corn. Sits in lounger smiles at the post from ASU fan saying Mullet and UTES are low class

    This coming from the fan base that fought over black faces being ok this year.

    ASU

    Bonus points for bringing up the MWC. This is our first year of full PAC money and we will be better than your teams in Bball and other Olympic sports already.

    Stay classy Devil fan. You should be the one defending low class behavior.

    He was benched when he blew a block for Wilson in pass protection.
