    #14 Runnin' Utes vs. South Dakota State

    Tuesday, December 23 @ 7:00 p.m. MST
    Jon M. Huntsman Center

    TV: Pac-12 Networks
    Radio: ESPN700 AM

    For me, yesterday became the end of the "I'm glad to be in the PAC" phenomenon.

    For 4 years (actually 5), there has been a sense of exhilaration because of the move to a new conference. To be able to trade a trip to Laramie for one to Tucson, or even a trip to Fort Collins for the beautiful Boulder campus, this upgrade has been a highlight of 5 decades of following UTE sports.

    But, in a way, the two resounding victories over former conference foes on Saturday put an end to this comparison with the past. It's all looking ahead now. Everything before the PAC12 move is no longer relevant.

    As I was watching the Vegas Bowl, I was amazed how distant the Rams have become for me. Only the 1994 game really matters much anymore. Everything else is ancient history.

    The Runnin' Rebels will always be a fun game, whenever we can schedule them, especially in their home town. But not because of any conference affiliation. My best memories of UTE/UNLV games goes back to the Jerry Pimm days, when the Rebels were a national power and before they were a conference foe.

    No, it's all about the Arizona schools now, just as it was in the 60s when I became a fanatical fan. I want to beat those guys. Bad. The former MWC foes are as distant to me as the UTEP Miners are, who gave me a familiar tug in my heart as I watched them struggle to stay with Utah State. The Miners, Lobos, Rams, Cougars, Cowboys, Falcons, Aztecs, Rainbows--they are all a rather pleasant distant memory.

    Bold TDS Predictions!

    by High Uintas
    2014-12-21 08:02:34

    Now that BYU has used our elected officials (who clearly have nothing better to do) to allow purchase (with tithing dollars, you know it's true!) of the Y Mountain land, I boldly predict the following:

    That TDS edges the Y with blue lights.

    These lights will flash when their teams win.

    They will coin the slogan, "Shine the Y!"

    They will claim it stems from a Pioneer tradition of lighting candles.

    They will claim the "Yewts" stole their idea.

    Perhaps if we can beat them first

    Bold Ute Fan Prediction

    Not a shot at you, just a general friendly rant.

    All Ute Fans someday will no longer give a rats ass what is going on with the BYU athletic program. Monson and the Utah media get pub from the pro/tag relationship manufactured between Utah and BYU. The Utah media will do everything they can to keep it alive as long as Ute readers click the headline and respond.

    To all Ute Fans...let em' go! I wish KW and LK in collaboration with CH would come out and say we are done with BYU and will schedule BYU as a filler game. This more applies to football. BB scheduling seems to have a little less hype.

    Go Utes!

    Last week some on this board were bemoaning the fact the Utah State Legislators cut an underhanded deal with the LDS Church to purchase said property well below market value. Now you are bemoaning the fact that tithing dollars were used.

    If the property was somehow massively undervalued, then the LDS Church made a shrewd investment. I think many people just like to criticize the LDS Church.

    I throw my 10% into the pot every year and frankly I don't care how those funds are used...whether it's donating millions to the University of Utah law school, buying property in Provo, building church buildings or retail centers, or buying orange groves and cattle ranches in Florida. I just don't care. If I did care, I could easily denote on my donation slip how I want my tithing funds utilized.

    You know that is not how it works, right?

    Each school is required to purchase so many tickets, which are then sold by the schools.

    Every school does something with their unsold tickets. Some give to charities. Some just give them away. Some give them away through the local alumni chapter. It's not uncommon.

    This is what they have left: speculation and rumormongering about our coach.

    They can all go get bent. They're miserable and they want company. Right now they should be more focused on and concerned about getting off work at noon on a Monday to watch a bowl game.

    The family dog is not a good source for rumors about these things.

    With different OC and QB coach in about all three of those years.

    So is it all on TW or is some on the inconsistency at coaching. Last time I looked the QB coach never played QB.

    • (NM) means No Message was included in the post, so don't bother clicking on it.
    • On the internet, there are people called "Trolls" -- not because they look like monsters -- but because they troll around different message boards, throwing out little baited hooks hoping to get a bite from some eager fish. And like any fisherman, the Trolls won't stay very long if no one bites
