Reading H-man's commentary earlier made me try to think about when I first realized I was a Ute.

by San Diego Ute Fan

After contemplation, I cannot point to a specific game, or even a specific year. I was literally carried to Ute games as a baby. Before I could walk, I experienced dozens of football and basketball games at the U.

I guess my earliest memory is being carried by my dad up the scary wooden bleachers to the cheap seats near the rafters of Einar Nielsen. I vividly remember being 3 or 4 years old; sitting on top of two rented red UofU seat cushions, both of our ski parkas, and straining to see over the shoulder of the people in front of us.

I remember the smell of the popcorn, the dirt floor, the fudgesickles from the ice cream truck behind the bleachers, and how brutally hot it got in a full house at the old "Wigwam".

I remember my dad pointing to Jack Gardner's milk basket, showing me how many quarts he drank, depending on the stress of the game. He had stomach ulcers that drove him to drink, (milk).

I clearly remember cheering for Chambers, English, Simon, Jackson... And later Newlin, Gardner, Mahler, and the boys as we transitioned into the Special Events Center.

I remember clearing snow and ice from the old wooden benches at Ute Stadium to set up our folding bleacher chairs that we got at the S&H Green Stamp redemption store. I remember being bundled up like the kid brother in "Christmas Story" to try to stay warm and still being cold.

What I remember most as a little Ute is winning. Seldom did Utah lose a game at home. Particularly in basketball. I cherish those trips up the hill with my dad. I am thankful for those memories even more than hunting and camping with my dad as a kid.

Those memories will never leave me. The games were one-on-one "me and dad" time. To this day, we speak on the phone before, during, and after Utah ball games.

Now, having had all girls, only one of which is a big Ute fan, I am building the same memories as best I can in SD with my grandson. He is Ute through and through at age 8, and always will be. The little man bleeds red.

In short, I cannot remember a day in my life that I wasn't a Ute, and I cannot remember the beginning of being a Ute. For that I am thankful.

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 was born a poor black child...

I remember a Christmas long ago, I was very young, and my Grammy Pearl was bouncing me on her knee. We were very poor, and Christmas presents were a luxury. We lived on love for each other. Anyway, Grammy had just finished a bottle of Old Crow and gave me the empty, or so she thought, as a Christmas present. There were still a few drops in the bottle. I quickly noticed and drank them before Grammy would see. It was then that I became a UTE for life.

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.

A good friend just forwarded me this article from the Rolling Stone magazine (of all places). It really nails the whole SEC favoritism ESPN shows 24/7:

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.
