    I like that you mentioned to "force social change." I am currently in a doctoral program studying organizational leadership--ironically, the identical field and school where Sam Ortiz will be attending next year (although, he will be after an M.Ed) (+5)

    "Just read today in the Arizona republic and East valley tribune (both local arizona papers) negative comments on utah fans, specifically mormon ones. First of all , the media and ASU stdents keep calling us the Kindergarten conference and second of all, The owner of Monti's La casa vieja restaurant (food and service are horrible) can't help himself by always saying in the paper and on the local news, that "When people from Utah travel, that they come with a ten dollar bill and the ten commandments and have no intention of breaking either one". Implying that we are cheapskates and self righteous prudes. Anyway for what it is worth, thought you fellow Utefans would like to know what they are saying about us... We are getting put on the chopping block down here.. media and Mill avenue owners saying not expecting much from Ute fans, and that sales will suck and no one wants Utah vs. Pitt."

    "They didn't hire him [Dick Harmon] to gain credibility. They hired him to be a bad BYU gossip writer. He does that job well."
    By: Diehard Ute, December 8, 2004

    "Morgan just gave me chills. He said how he and his wife were freaking out because they didn't know if Whit had gotten the Job and he said he got a phone call around 12:00am from Whit and he said this is what the conversation was like... 'KW: Morgan; MS: Yes coach? KW: A Utah Man Sir, A Utah Man Am I!!!!!!' Morgan said he and his wife started freaking out jumping up and down, from there they called Pouha and Pouha stood up on a table in the library and anounced it and all the students were cheering and throwing papers in the air. Damn I'm proud..."

    "I wonder if you'll see a billboard that reads: 'Gator Football, fasten your seatbelts' and then next year: 'Gator footbal: you ain't seen nothing yet'"
    By: fuegote, December 8, 2004

    "If King Kyle can get Mullen to stick around and coach the offensive spread then all of us old utes will never need Viagra again. "
    By: runnutz, December 8, 2004

    "The October Sports Illustrated issue was right after all, "mistakenly" and prophetically showing a picture of Whittingham as the Ute's head coach. "
    By: Ultimate Ute, December 8, 2004

    "Always love to see a new Ute on the board. Especially since the 2,396,421 people who have signed up in the last little while are all trolls form Fl, ND, Tx, and Toledo. The best way to know poster's personality is to read many of their posts. And while doing so not taking anyone too seriously because most of the Utes have a mean sarcastic streak. This board is 99% entertainment and 1% informative. Okay... maybe that is an exageration. You'll find tons of good information here. But when one of the devious law students posts a rumor just to be funny... sit back and watch the mayhem develop. Nothing funnier than the cougarboard, every MAC board, radio shows, and even news outlets citing their solid source that Amstutz is eating a twinkie in celebration of his new contract with the U of U."
    By: Tokolosh, December 8, 2004

    "No disrespect to Auburn intended, but... Whomever wins the Orange. If VaTech can beat Auburn, and UTAH can beat Pitt, I say we hang a banner in REO(KW)S that reads: UNIVERSITY OF UTAH RUNNIN' UTES - NATIONAL CO-CHAMPIONS - 2004"

    "Just because I haven't said this for a while...'BYU sucks; it sucked yesterday, it sucks today and it will suck tomorrow.' "
    By: Redhawk, December 8, 2004

    "A couple of thoughts on this most glorious of occasions [the hiring of Kyle Whittingham as Head Coach:] 1. Dick Harmon: Cougarboard.com is not a source. Also simply wishing really hard, not a source. 2. Michael C. Lewis: Tom Amstutz was only a possibility in my finals-addled brain. As for you, Mr. Crimson is not a source. 3. SUCK IT ZOOBS, I MEAN IT SUCK IT LONG SUCK IT HARD SUCK IT LIKE AN EVERLASTING GOBSTOPPER. 4. WE RULE."
    By: Mr Crimson, December 8, 2004

    "Thank heaven ND fired Willingham. If they had not flown out here, I am sure Urban Meyer would have dallied longer before taking the Fla. job, and Kyle would have taken the Y job because he had no alternative to consider. "

    "Upon telling my wife that the Ute players might coach themselves, she replied, now how much did you say they're paying those coaches?"
    By: Ultimate Ute, December 7, 2004

    "I used to think there was more integrity in college football than in pro sports. No longer is the case. At least pro sports are honest about what they are all about. None of this for the student athletes crock of shit that college football tries to pass off."
    By: mpfunk, December 7, 2004

    "College Football story of the year: The 2004 Utah Utes... They did everything their coaching staff asked of them... Then got royally F#%&ed over by them... At least they have the knowledge that... They made their coaches a lot of money... I hope that makes them feel better."
    By: Vegas Ute, December 7, 2004

    "Urban said he was going to Florida so he could throw a ball with his son. Having not lived in Utah for 20 years, when was ball throwing made illegal?"
    By: Ultimate Ute, December 7, 2004

    "I want him coaching b/c the players want him and he is an excellent coach, but I can just here the line he's giving his new recruits. '...want a taste of what you are going to be a part of at Florida? Watch my system during the Fiesta Bowl.' I do feel a bit used."
    By: gsrodeo47, December 7, 2004

    "I hope KW was watching that [Urban saying Utah could beat OK, USC, and Auburn]. Maybe Patrick should ask him if he thinks TDS could beat Rutgers."
    By: IanFaith, December 7, 2004

    "Dan Hawkins signs 5 year extension at Boise State, with many other job offers on the table, nice to see a coach who wants to see his program through."
    By: GOshute, December 7, 2004

    "I'd like to welcome everyone here today. I am glad that we can finally put these difficult days behind us. As I began to contemplate who our new coach would be, my thoughts came to what makes a great University of Utah coach and what keeps them here. And my thought finally rested at this. We need a coach who is fat and swears, the University is at its best when that happens. Further we need a coach who could develop health problems that will keep him here. When I looked across the country only two men fit that bill, and since only one of them is a good coach the decision was made for us. Ladies and Gentlemen I'd like to introduce the next coach at the University of Utah, Tom Amstutz."
    By: Mr Crimson, December 7, 2004

    "He is no longer our coach, why should he coach? What should be the pinnacle of the Utah football season will instead be a 4 quarter infomercial showcasing Urban Meyer and the offense he will bring to the SEC. Television knows football is king in the south, so how do you think they will get and capture those viewers, by talking about Utah and the game ... hell no. As I said, the central focus will be about our ex-coach and Florida and their future."
    By: DistantUte, December 7, 2004

    "Anybody who thinks Chris Hill was not prepared for Urban to leave . . . doesn't know much about Chris Hill. He has a short list at all times with possible replacements for all his head coaches, and he keeps each list up to date. Now, he might have been surprised at how quickly the Urban Rocket Ship achieved escape velocity (with the Florida offier and then Notre Dame and the ensuing circus), but his succession plan for Urban is not something he just figured out on a cocktail napkin."
    By: LA Ute, December 6, 2004

    "For the record, I'm not mad at Urban Meyer anymore. I think what happened is that the Florida offer came so fast and was so big that he was like a deer in the headlights when the media would corner him about it, and he bumbled his way thru some things he now wishes he didn't say. That doesn't mean that I'm not still upset that he's leaving."
    By: WebMonkey, December 6, 2004

    "I sure am grateful for Quinton Ganther... as I watched that fine video of the BYU game put together by BIGAL, I realized for the hundreth time how lucky we are to have him. He's not only an awesome back, but he's also a great, humble person. I see him as a great example to the team. He never complained about touches, but instead said he'd do whatever was asked of him."
    By: Jax, December 6, 2004

    "What many people haven't heard yet is that Monkey was offered to run gatorfans.net for 4x the paypal donations. He turned it down because he is a Utah Man. Plus his two daughters like it here. Hail Monkey!"
    By: UndispUTEd, December 6, 2004

    "If we tell him [RbanMEyer] to take a hike, then he cleans house of his assistants, offering them lucrative pay raises when they get to Florida, and we have no one left behind to be the coach [of the Fiesta Bowl]. But if we beg him so stay, then he gets his fat ego stroked. We spent the last 2 years bending over backwards for him, now we're bending over forward and pulling down our pants."
    By: WebMonkey, December 6, 2004

    "Selfish? That's not the word for Urban Meyer. He's single-minded, ambitious and young enough to recognize opportunities when they arrive. Just because we understand [all of that] doesn't mean it doesn't SUCK [to watch him leave]."
    By: RavenUte, December 6, 2004

    "Frankly, I am having a hard time seeing the future of the Ute football program. Heaven knows, that after the Final four in 1998, I did not envision a scenarioe where the Utes would lose 71-45 to USU and look as if they had no clue about what was going on. I also did not envision a return to the days of 6,000 uninsipired, fans at basketball games."
    By: UTEopia, December 5, 2004

    "Far be it for me to tell anyone what to post, but it would be nice if we supported our great team on this historic day. Can we forget about Meyer until tomorrow? These guys had one hell of a season and they deserve our total support!!! "
    By: Proud2BaUte, December 5, 2004

    "There was one other thing that was intersting that night [of the BYU game]. Urban and Shelly stood off to the side of the team during Utah Man, they weren't in the middle of it like they usually were."
    By: Diehard Ute, December 4, 2004

    "CBS in Vegas said 'Sanford turned down the Utah job to take the UNLV job.' If true he failed the IQ test portion of the interview process."
    By: Vegas Ute, December 4, 2004

    "If the [Florida] deal was done after the TDS game, then frankly he was talking to them before his season was over and that right there is unethical."
    By: mpfunk, December 4, 2004

    "For any Florida fans who think there is no chance of Meyer moving up to the NFL based on his stated preference for the college game, don't delude yourselves. We were warned by the Bowling Green fans, and consider yourselves warned by us. Urban Meyer is an excellent coach, perhaps more driven than any coach I've ever seen or heard of. If Urban Meyer wins a National Championship or two with Florida, he'll have a waning interest in staying in Gainesville, if he sees the Super Bowl as a bigger prize, IMO."
    By: Ma'ake, December 4, 2004

    "If Urban really felt the need to go to a big BCS school even after all that crap he gave us about not even understanding the system he should have given Florida a verbal agreement on the condition that they leave him alone until after our bowl game. Then a couple weeks after our celebration he should have announced it. At least give the players the glory they've earned. I do believe they can and should win this game without the Leyer."
    By: Snowman, December 4, 2004

    "All the vitriol directed at Meyer is disappointing and embarrassing. He came here, liked it, said so, did a great job and then was offered a much better one. He took it. He never promised a lifetime deal, he came in with the side door opened in his contract. While here he did a fantastic job and brought us where we had never been before, by a longshot. I dont think he or his family lied once about really liking it in SLC and at Utah. ...Thanks Urban and good luck."
    By: rjtla, December 4, 2004

    "For all the bad things that have been said about Majerus over the years, I think one of the reasons he stuck around as long as he did is because 1) he liked Utah, and 2) he felt a commitment to his players to stay and coach them when they made a commitment to play for him. Urban will succeed wherever he coaches but I think we've all learned very qucikly that Urban is a guy who epitomizes the definition of "looking out for #1"."
    By: Big Mac, December 4, 2004

    "Meyer was brought in to turn things around, and he did it, very quickly & convincingly. But there was no illusion for me that he was going to be a long-timer at Utah. Urban Meyer is one of the most impressive turnaround artists I've ever seen, yet it remains unclear how well his approach will work in the long term. His intensity is unbelievable, and I saw a few signs of players starting to grow weary of the unrelenting schpiel. Will his act eventually grow tiresome for players, ala Pat Riley?"
    By: Ma'ake, December 4, 2004

    "Kirk [Herbstreit] says Urban shouldn't coach the Fiesta. On Gameday right now. Kirk said, 'It would be one thing if it were against Oklahoma or Auburn, but this is against Pitt. He's accomplished all he can accomplish. Time to cut ties and get out.'"
    By: GatorMarc, December 4, 2004

    "'First of all, I love it here. But I'm second fiddle. My family is No. 1, and they love it here. As long as we're filling the stadium, as long as we're continuing to grow as a program and as long as I feel these student-athletes are getting the best opportunity to be a top 25 program which I think it is I'm going to be the coach here.' -- Urban Meyer, back in October"
    By: Urban Meyer, December 4, 2004

    "His wife [Shelley Meyer], who's a good friend of my wife, loves the mountains, loves living in Utah. You've got small kids. This is a decision that involves families."
    By: Bernie Machen, December 4, 2004

    "Meyer, just this April, purchased a membership at Willow Creek Country Club ($30,000 up-front, $2,200/month), knowing that he;d likely be gone by that time next year. Word has it he golfed a total of 13 rounds."
