Guys guys guys, Enough with the harping on the U fans for gloating. Just let
them have it. It's the good Christian thing to do for people with so
little else in their lives but BYU sports comment boards.
You guys validate BleedCougar's point very well.BTW, I Never
post on a Utah article, because, frankly, I don't care. So, I, for
one, honestly don't understand the Ute fan's obsession for BYU. You
guys have the PAC-12 with a bright future. If I were a Ute fan, at this point, I
wouldn't give BYU a second thought.So why do YOU?
BleedCougarBlue:Uh-oh! Looks like a certain little someone just
woke up and found himself on the wrong side of a quarter century of
dominance!Utah: 16-8 (.667)midmajory little bro: 8-16
(.333)Clearly, the Utes are LITERALLY better than the cougs. Haha!
How miserable for you.
Bleed....ok, I'll bite....I'm LITERALLY saying that Utah is better
than BYU. My proof? Um....let's see....how about the scoreboard?
Rankings? P5 vs. Independence (which by the way your coach and AD said was
unsustainable), 6 in a row, 11 of 14, 35 NFL draftees since 2005 vs. 13 in the
same time period.....Should I go on? By the way, that's not
being condescending....It's the just the truth.
"'Rude' and 'condescending' is when Utah fans LITERALLY
say they are better than BYU"Bleeding:Haha! Yeah,
repeating "6-in-a-row" and "Every CFP ranking" is SO rude and
condescending.Please don't cry.
@ JohnInSLC - Cottonwood Heights, UT - May 17, 2017 2:23 p.m. "complain . .
. when a Utah fan comments on a BYU article in a snide, rude, condescending
way" " I admit I like to tease occasionally" Bleeding: Yeah, nothing
hypocritical about that!"Wrong.One can
"tease" without being "rude" or "condescending". For instance, I just wrote a post on another article. One poster said
they wondered how Utah puts so many guys into the NFL. I replied that I
wondered why if Utah was so good then why didn't they win more conference
games and why games against BYU are so excruciatingly close. That is
"teasing"."Rude" and "condescending" is when
Utah fans LITERALLY say they are better than BYU and admit they purposely
display an arrogant attitude against BYU. Yes, I have seen that exact thing
stated by Utah fans many times on Deseret News articles. If you refuse to see
the difference between teasing and condescending arrogance, I can't help
@ bleeding blueWhen U fans comment we are rude and condescending, when y
fans like yourself comment its good natured teasing, got it. My question
was why do y fans always complain but U fans don't? Y fan can be mean
spirited and hateful as well, just stop complaining that U fan throws shade, esp
when u all do it too. Do u really look forward to seeing the U in
sept? I mean 6 in a row and 11/13? Its not 1984, I don't see any
dominant players on kalanis team. Best of luck, think your going to need
lots and lots of it to get that elusive W finally
"complain . . . when a Utah fan comments on a BYU article in a snide, rude,
condescending way"" I admit I like to tease occasionally"Bleeding:Yeah, nothing hypocritical about that!
@ Utahman4life - Lehi, UT - May 17, 2017 9:32 a.m. - "@ Bleed blue, Can you
or anyone else explain to me why cougar fan whines about Utah fans reading and
commenting on byU themes articles? What is the big deal? I like to be an
informed fan. You are the one that went full obsessed fan in your initial
comment. So U have never read or commented on a Utah themed article
then?"First, BYU fans don't "whine" if a Utah fan
merely comments about a BYU article in a civil, polite way. We DO complain,
justifiably, when a Utah fan comments on a BYU article in a snide, rude,
condescending way. The latter happens all the time, amigo. All. The.
Time.Second, yes, I occasionally comment on pro-Utah articles. I
admit I like to tease occasionally, but yet there is the difference again. MY
comment, as a BYU fan, was on a BYU article and was written in a general
response to BYU haters like Chris B and that Navy guy, Uteology, etc that spend
more time bashing BYU than praising the school they, supposedly, root for.Many Utah fans are living proof of hypocrisy at its finest.See you in September!
It makes for great water cooler conversations and debates, but it is highly
subjective at this point. Preseason hype is usually meaningless. Here's
hoping that Tanner and the entire Cougars football squad have a great season.
@ Bleed blueCan you or anyone else explain to me why cougar fan whines
about Utah fans reading and commenting on byU themes articles? What is the big
deal? I like to be an informed fan. You are the one that went full
obsessed fan in your initial comment. So U have never read or commented

@ Utahman4life - Lehi, UT - May 16, 2017 1:54 p.m. - "BleedCougarBlue - Hey,
Utah fans....where's the nationally syndicated/non-Utah-based newspaper
article on YOUR starting QB?" I love that an article about YOUR qb is
written and your first thought is about big brother. rent free 24/7"One teeny, tiny difference: I'm a BYU fan posting on a BYU article.
You?, eh, not so much....
@StrikerBYU versus 2 SEC schools. Name one non-SEC school who can
say that in any season in football. Not even Notre Dame can say this. ------Western Kentucky 2016Troy 2013, 2012, 2009...Memphis 2009Alabama Birmingham 2014, 2013...Should I
continue, or do you get the picture why cupcake down south has 2 SEC games?
Just ahead of the qb from TCU, just behind the qb from Michigan.No
matter how you spin it, this is pretty high praise from a fairly knowledgeable
sports writer with no reason to man-crush over Tanner.
Out of the 12 football-related comments, 8 of them are from Ute fans and BYU
haters. If BYU is upsetting them this much you know it's a good sign.Some of those posters make it sound like Mangum is worse than all the P5
QBs. I looked at the list and found out that they were wrong. Again. Verdict: if
a BYU hater gives a "fact" about BYU, don't take their word for it.
@striker - yes BYU may be the only non-SEC team to play 2 SEC teams. But, like
ranking Mangum the #8 out of conference QB, this is a totally meaningless stat.
There isn't a P5 team that would schedule 2 of their 3 or 4 out of
conference games against the SEC - so the pool of teams that has enough room in
the schedule is pretty small. Just like the pool of good teams playing the SEC
schools when the entire conference mostly plays low end competition in out of
byU, where its enough to just be on the same field as SEC teams. Yep, a
storied program indeed.Go Liberty!
Striker:"Name one non-SEC school who can say that in any season
in football."Not many can. But mostly because that's not a
"thing". Never had there ever been a metric in all of college football
for "which non-SEC team will play the most SEC opponents in a single
season", so nobody really pays attention to that irrelevant factoid.
Not only will Mangum likely be a Heisman candidate but it's probable that
one of his backups will be too! Go Cougars!
BYU versus 2 SEC schools. Name one non-SEC school who can say that in any
season in football. Not even Notre Dame can say this. Where one person ranks a
QB who plays the SEC is totally irrelevant, but playing two teams is. Really
excited to see Mangum verses these teams!
@BleedCougarBlueHey, Utah fans....where's the nationally
syndicated/non-Utah-based newspaper article on YOUR starting QB?I
love that an article about YOUR qb is written and your first thought is about
big brother. rent free 24/7lol
"Small forwards?" Isn't Kevin Durant 7'+?
worf,Look at the list. Coming in at #8 should be expected. SEC plays
a bunch of FCS schools for non-conference play. He fits right above FCS QBs and
right below P5 QBs. No surprises.
Why would a DNews article about a BYU "offend" anyone, or surprise
anyone for that matter?As usual, byu leads most every
category in the preseason.
Hey, Utah fans....where's the nationally syndicated/non-Utah-based
newspaper article on YOUR starting QB?Oh, right, there isn't
"This will offend some ute fans.Waiting for the backlash."dorf:Hardly. It's you coog fans that should be
offended. The entire SEC only faces, what, nine P5 schools this
year? The others are primarily FCS and a few G5. Ranking Mangum 8th in that
group is faint praise.
This will offend some ute fans.Waiting for the backlash.
magnum will be heisman finalist before fall camp starts. go cougs.
