    Sounds like they would be happy to never play anybody again. Let's make that happen.

    Since everybody in the world is unworthy of sharing the same air as the enlightened BYU faithful.

    Reading up on the Black 14. Wow interesting stuff I never knew..

    More Info here


    In the western United States, some college athletes learned of the Mormon Church’s policy of barring black men from the church’s lay priesthood and thus from leadership in the church. The students felt they could bring attention to what they saw as an injustice by protesting when their teams played Brigham Young University. BYU, located in Provo, Utah, is wholly owned and operated by the Mormon Church.

    In November 1968, at San Jose State in California, black football players boycotted a home game against BYU, and only 2,800 fans “braved threats of disruption and demonstration” to come to the game, BYU’s football media guide noted the following year. In April, 1969, black track athletes at the University of Texas at El Paso were ejected from the team when they refused to participate in a meet at Provo. On Oct. 6, an Associated Press story in Wyoming newspapers reported that an Arizona State black student group had asked black students to boycott the Sun Devils' Western Athletic Conference game against BYU that week because of alleged discrimination against blacks at BYU.

    In EVERY game in Provo, I was treated far worse then I was in Laramie.

    I remember going to the last game Utah played in Laramie and the same horror stories were told about how Wyoming fans treat Utah fans as well. The actual experience was the complete opposite. We parked at a little church lot across from the stadium

    and the parking people handed us cookies. Went across the street to this open tailgate party area and had so many people welcome us and offer free food and drinks. Later I went to get in line to buy some food from a bbq vendor there and people ushered me to the front of the line. In the stadium my ticket was in the middle of only Wyoming fans. There was some good natured banter but nothing offensive and the guy I sat next to was really cool. We had a great conversation the entire game.

    I tend to think that all the so-called bad experiences that zoobs experience are either embellished or in retaliation to asshattery on the part of the zoob. There are no bigger douche barges than zoobs so it doesn't surprise me when they get a taste of their own medicine. In 2007 I had partly eaten hot dogs and water bottles and other drink cups thrown up at us sitting in the visitor area at LES. So the fans there are not just innocent angels. If there was stuff done to zoobs then they most assuredly brought it on themselves!

    I miss WYO

    I always hated them growing up, but learned to respect the rivalry we had with them, especially in hoops. I remember their rowdy fans filling the upper reaches of the Special Events Center. They always brought energy, and cheered their cowboys on with pride.

    Looking back, its been 5 yrs since the the P12 invite. I can truly say that I miss those guys.

    GO WYO!

    Back in August, Jon Wilner pretty much predicted exactly what would happen to us this year

    by It's801derful
    2016-12-05 13:45:04

    He predicted we'd start out the season hot at 4-0, beating USC, but that we'd lose to both Cal and Oregon and would finish 8-4. And most prophetically, he predicted we would lose to Colorado because, going in, we'd have nothing to play for. About that game he said:

    "One team is revved, and it’s not the visitors as Utah’s promising season ends with a modest, and familiar, thud."

    Yup.

    Why do these fabrications always include urinals?

    Zoobs always have crystal clear detail of where fans are peeing and how many....

    Seems like some deeper issues are being let out.

    What I've learned from Cougarboard: Anyone who drinks is a belligerent alcoholic who cannot control themselves. Anyone who plays BYU acts in ways that they would never act the other 364 days of the year simply to persecute their religion.

    It's been a few years, but I got to witness Wyoming fans first hand at the Mountain West championship game in Las Vegas in the mid 90s.

    Here is what I witnessed. Many of the fans were wearing Tshirts with numerous scattered sentences each containing the F word and something relating to Mormonism. "F Joseph Smith." "F the Mormons and their F ing wives." Etc. It wasn't a few frat boys. I saw whole families including young children wearing them.

    No Wyoming fan is seen carrying one beer. If they had three hands, they would carry three beers.

    The volume of beer taxes the restroom facilities. When I went to use the restroom, on the BYU side of the stadium, Wyoming fans represented 90 of the urinators. There was line 10 deep to pee in the urinals, and five deep to pee in the sink. The restroom was a urine soaked Wyoming pep rally, with loud cheering and hostility to any BYU fan who ventured in.

    On the whole, I thought I would happy to never play Wyoming again.


    Wyoming Fans--a guide for the uninitiated.

    None of those songs played on Little Steven's Underground Garage so I missed them.

    I didn't recognize one song in the Too 100 list and I'm fine with that.
