    I don't think it was seen by the officials

    I guess the Ute fan with the goatee was a complete dickhole and looks a little inbred tbh.

    I went to the Utah-Weber State opener last season and saw a few people in BYU gear. I thought to myself, “Hmmm, that’s strange”.

    Don’t get me wrong. I love football and if I was a Utah transplant living in Tennessee, I may have been interested enough to attend yesterday’s game. That being said, I absolutely wouldn’t wear Ute gear under any circumstance. I’ve always seen it as poor form and a little lame to wear your colors to a game your team has nothing to do with. For whatever reason, I see it a lot in the NFL and I just think, “Why”?

    Good post. I go to ute games quite often. More often than byu games even. When i go to ute games i wear a red hoodie (its about the only red piece of clothing i own) and cheer for the utes. (Even if im kinda wanting them to lose)

    Of course i partake in the adult beverages and festivities as well.

    I always have a good time. Being that there are a lot of drunks there, i have seen some pretty bad behavior. But thats what happens with heavy all day drinking and a charged up atmosphere.
    I always have fun. Would never dream of being an obnoxious douche to a bunch of random people at a ute game that i dont know.

    I remember ugli baby at a utah vs ucla game doing some horrible ****. He had been drinking straight whiskey out of a red solo cup for the last 3-4 hours. Gotta expect some bad things to happen.

    The behavior in the rivalry is getting downright weird. I’m at a work convention this week and this afternoon at lunch, I had a BYU fan completely shut down and stop talking to me after he found out I was a Ute fan. I didn’t even small-talk him, just told him I was a Utah fan and then got the legitimate silent treatment.

    I have no problem being completely honest about the fact that I don’t like BYU. I grew up in their era of dominance and have a bad taste in my mouth for several reasons. That being said, I don’t associate my dislike of BYU sports with people who cheer for BYU. Hell, I can and have talked football with BYU fans for for hours at a time. Back in the Crowton years, I won tix to the BYU-Syracuse season opener and figured I’d go just to see the BYU game day atmosphere. I wore neutral colors and respected the hosts.

    It’s not that hard to not be an ******* but I guess it’s becoming more rare? ‍♂️

    Also, I don’t know what’s wrong with me but I found myself legitimately happy that BYU beat Tennessee, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they give USC more than they bargain for. (Maybe I’m mellowing in my old age)?

    I’m so sick of SEC fans and their superiority complex for a league that is 2-3 teams heavy with a large majority of the league being average to bad and almost all of their teams refusing to play more than the occasional game West of Texas.

    Obviously, teams like Bama/Georgia are on a completely different level but I’d easily like Utah’s chances playing the likes of Tennessee/Vanderbilt/Arkansas/Ole Miss much more than facing a line-up of Oregon/USC/Washington/Washington State.

    I'm terrified of USC and Washington.

    Thanks for posting those. It's nice to see something positive, and that those fans showed class.

    Tennessee was a good win but they're not a good team. USC is going to smoke BYU.

    Most likely. Thing about football though is that what you expect to happen sometimes doesn't actually happen

    Fwiw usc is favored by 4. 4 points wouldn't really be a "smoking" imo.

    If BYU lost by 4 that would be a good loss because I'm expecting them to lose by 17+

    While I’m terrified of playing @USC in Week 4, I think it’s valid because Utah has A LOT to lose and has never won at the Coliseum. Like, ever.

    That being said, I’m still not convinced USC is for real and that those kids are buying into playing for Clay Helton’s job. The Stanford win was impressive, but the problem with it being week 2 is that I don’t know if Stanford is very good.

    I could see USC blowing them out, but with their talent, they should be capable of blowing almost anybody out. I could also see BYU taking this game deep into the 4th qtr and surprising a lot of people.

    BYU just came off an SEC road win and their fans are now past the dreaded “What if we lose to Utah 9 straight times?” mentality. They’re gonna be all hopped up on Cougar Tails and caffeinated soda, screaming ‘Popcorn Popping on The Apricot Tree’ and still insisting that there’s a place in the NBA for Jimmer. All of this could just end up being too much for USC.

    You know who scares me is Wazzu. Its their system - you plug in any QB in and they are throwing for 400 yards 4 touchdowns. The way the play is difficult for any defense to deal with. They have had our number lately.

    Another one is Cal. Well they remind me of us a little bit, a really good defense that will keep them in a lot of games vs good teams.

    There is a lot of parity, which is good but also will be challenging for us to navigate.

    There is no place for Jimmer in the NBA.

    Fair enough but byu doesn't play those teams so they don't really scare me
