  1. Not usually a fan of all white uni’s but I think these look good. Calling them royalty is just a good example of why some schools - like uw - are easy to hate. Still arrogant after all those losses!
  2. I have never seen a picture on here that was offensive to me or tasteless. Don’t really care if you use cheerleader photos or not and it is your site. Cheerleaders are at every game, so it isn’t something every fan on this site hasn’t seen. Agree that it takes strength and athleticism to do it. Wish I could post my fave cheer picture, but this isn’t a Utah site. Away game and opposing fan jumped out of the stands to try to take the U flag and our cheerleader pounded him! The site is great. Thanks
  3. Great article - so much fun. I am not convinced Bo is the savior but my feeling from watching him at auburn a number of times each year is that he can play and can win in the right situation. A couple of thoughts He was playing against better teams lots of weeks - that won’t be the case this year. MC screwed up a lot of things with Oregons offense, but he didn’t make AB miss wide open guys or force bad throws. As a Ute, I would be fine to play AB again The other two QB’s are so unproven, I would save them until (if) Bo sinks and then try to get a big lift giving one of them a shot.
  4. Another Utah vs. Oregon game in Vegas sounds great. If that is how it plays out I can even live with a loss as long as we are there because we hung 70 on the sc traitors.
  5. My family got over it a few weeks ago. Big commonality was all three of us had symptoms (allergy/cold) and tested negative until the third day of symptoms. Went from one of us to the next to the next, so we were pretty sure we all had it after we got the first positive test. Our advice to friends has been be very cautious around others if you have symptoms and keep testing. Good luck to you all and hope no one gets a serious case.
  6. So sad. Never want to see a tragedy like this. My heart goes out to his family and all of you.
  7. My most important in order 1- All the games they are supposed to win. Can’t drop a dumb one. Easy to look past this, but Oregon and Utah each lost s stupid conference game last year that they should have won. 2- Utah (at least once) - end of the season and is a must win revenge game that will have huge impact on ranking/playoff/bowl etc. 3 - Georgia - Most people don’t think the Ducks can win this, so it would be huge if they do, but not the end of the world if they drop this one in the first week as long as they play a good game.
  8. As a Utah fan, I generally cheer for pac-12 teams in non-conference games - but NEVER for the spoiled children, and mostly never for the devils unless it really helps us. Never been a big fan of the purple team, so easy to support the forum and cheer against them now! I will be pulling for the Ducks 100% against Georgia ( I think they at least cover) and every other game until 11/19. I think there are a lot of fans in Utah that feel similarly. Respect the Ducks and hate those L.A. traitors.
  9. Fun to get worked up about something other than conference realignment ! Sorry Pitt - Can’t be on this list if you are home to an NFL team and more than a million people No to Fargo - must be above zero degrees for more than 6 months a year to make any “best” list Minnesota - see above Corvallis ? ? ?
  10. I love so many of the Duck uniforms, but don’t get the mud splatter.
  11. Interesting that they actually give the PAC-12 a little love. They basically call it a toss up between Utah, Oregon and usc. Duck fans should be happy - Saying that Utah has everything in place to make a run at the CFP just dooms them to a 3rd or 4th place finish - They never do well when they get the hype and are the favorites.
  12. I agree that tv market size is one important factor in negotiating a better contract, but geography is still the big obstacle. Arguably Oregon and the Ducks brand bring more to the table in negotiating than a team like Utah or Arizona which both have larger media markets. People east of the Rockies know Oregon and usc and they need to be good. No one outside of Utah cares one bit about watching them - unless it is against a name team like the osu. Having really good teams (and top heavy as Charles stated) makes a huge difference. I think SDSU or UNLV could add some things to the conference, but not enough geographically. I think we missed the boat when the big-12 was desperate and there was a chance to pick up a couple of Texas teams like Baylor or TCU that would have stretched the footprint farther east. In the near term pac-12 teams need to win or be competitive in the big non-conference games where east coasters watch.
  13. Axel is THE funniest! Yes, Utah fans know MC and would be practically suicidal to see him on our sidelines - even scarier than Carnival of Souls. It took Whit 15 years to actually believe you can throw the ball on first down - going back to the 2 yds and a cloud of frustration with MC would make us all give up!
  14. Interesting to look at it that way. I agree that usc looks to have a scary good group at WR and the Ducks have a lot of talent and are right up there - even though they don’t have as much experience. If the o-line holds up they will be as good as any group. Utah has had a weak group at WR and it seems fair that they are near the bottom with Covey gone. It is all about the TE’s for them, but at some point better defenses will be able to adjust to that if the receivers don’t get better.
