Are you riding this bandwagon to Santa Clara?

Love Ute Nation, but I have a bone to pick. I never post here, in fact this is my first. A PSA that needs to be considered by all Real Utah fans.

I was in Santa Clara last year for ‘ship and it was an almost empty stadium. Do not sit on your couch and feel like you are a part of this team!!! You are part of this team when you can give them tangible encouragement when they are up or down in a high stakes matchup. Go to Santa Clara!! Find a way!!!

I’m not going, I guess I’m not a Real fan in your eyes. I did go to the holiday bowl though. Or did I? How could have I been there if I’m not real? What a mystery, anyway… big middle finger to you buddy.

You’re on a roll tonight…you just come to the message board to get pissed off at everyone?

Ah, the ‘real fan’ posts begin. I’ve been attending Utah sporting events for basically my entire life since a toddler and run a fan forum for all Ute fans to participate. I think anyone who has supported the Utes less than that are not real fans. Find a way!

Nowhere near pissed off. Just reacting to posts that I find a little ridiculous, dishonest, or inaccurate.

Tell you what. You buy the Christmas presents for my twin 6-year-olds (who couldn’t care less about football), then I’ll spend that money to get to Santa Clara for the game. Deal?

Cause otherwise, it ain’t happening this year…sorry to say.

Ok…kinda odd to call people dicks in one post and send a “big middle finger” in another when you’re not upset. Not really a normal reaction for most people, or a great way to encourage reasonable discussion.

Since I guess that is your normal reaction to posts you don’t like, how do we know when you’re actually upset?

do you really care if I’m pissed off or not? Or are you just trying to tell me my behavior isn’t normal because of the way I tell others their behavior isn’t normal? Seems you and I aren’t that different.

Ha ha thank you all for replies. You remind me why I avoid the Internet armpit of message boards. You are probably the same people disparaging the coaching staff and claiming the sky was falling when we were down 0-7 last night. I won’t be back. You guys can have this :slight_smile:

Oh, and in case you are wondering why people are piling on you, perhaps you should consider your own actions first before declaring people the ‘internet armpit of message boards.’

Perhaps there is a reason someone doesn’t go to this game… like maybe they can’t afford it. The last thing the U needs is for it to be only a source of fandom for the well-off. And by the way, don’t find a way to go if you can’t afford it. Nobody in the world should be going into debt or something to go to this game.

So maybe this is the message: “If you can afford it, go support the team - they need you now.”

Same message - but without all the internet snobbery. On behalf of UF.N and its esteemed board of trustees and the good people of this nation - if this is your intended conduct here please go find somewhere else to participate. Its a new board, it doesn’t need people like you bringing it down.

However, if you want to provide some sort of positive contribution, come back anytime.

Some of us have to work.

Some of us have to host a social where we will have the game running on the big screen.

Life happens, and the last time I checked there was no fandom litmus test. Oh, and finding $1,000 plus to roadie the game isn’t chump change the last time I checked.
