Is it over? Have we won the rivalry?

Posted By: Ute Bear

I have come to realize that I don't know a single Zoob, friend/neighbor/coworker that isn't willing to admit that Utah has the superior football program now and in the foreseeable future.

Every year the noise from fans of the team down south has gotten quieter and quieter. This year silence.

Sure they still hate Utah, and they hope that, if injuries, turnovers and luck, the could pull a victory. But there is no more hubris.

Can you have a rivalry when the teams are not competing to prove which team is superior? Is mutual hatred enough to call it a rivalry?

Perhaps the board seniors can harken back to the 70/80s when BYU had the superior program. Was BYU considered our rival, or just the enemy?

Newbomb Turk icon NEW: Somebody just recently posted a link to their board where they were saying that we would go 2-10 with a devastating loss to them. So, not all of them are conceding.

UTE BC icon NEW: They stopped being our rival when we left them for the PAC-12. They will always be our enemy because of the dirty politicians that are in their corrupt pockets. (nm)

Newbomb Turk icon NEW: It was a joke in the content sense. But you never know with zoobs. We're talking about a fan base that has slogans like "quest for perfection". (nm)

mokus icon NEW: At CB, hope springs eternal. There are plenty that think Grimes is the answer to their problems. That they have a top 40 D that just needs an O to score. That Kalani can totally right the ship. That Utah has been 7 years lucky. (nm)

Carolina Cycling Ute icon NEW: Agreed, there is still definitely hubris in regards to BYU-P. At least based upon the links we've seen recently from their board.
