Who do you want to win byu-utah?

Post by QuackAttackAggie » August 27th, 2019, 1:13 am

Saw a debate on cougarboard about who aggie fans would be cheering for. I think i know the answer, but let's poll.

As fun as it would be to see Utah fans come back down to earth a bit, this is an easy one.

Standard hope a gaping pit swallows them both or they have a 0-0 tie going into 7 overtime periods.

Is there a way that they can both lose?

I voted for the last option.

I really don't care, but having BYU win would be nice for me because the other engineers at my work are Ute alumni and a Ute loss to BYU would make for some good office banter.

I’d rather BYU lose. They take a bowl game away from the Mountain West if they become eligible.

I work with a bunch of Utes, that along with the fact that they won't play us makes me want BYU to ruin their season. I think the U takes it easily though.

I hope the Utes continue their streak for a long, long time. It is absolutely glorious listening to byu fans get so upset at the "smugness", "arrogance", and "superiority" of Utah fans looking down on byu without the slightest hint of self-awareness that that is the exact reason everyone hates byu fans.

If they both can’t lose, then I want Utah to lose. They’re ranked and projected to be in the pac 12 championship game. A loss now would really hurt them.

Ute fans are insufferable. Worse than cougar fans imo. I wish both could lose but I hope byu wrecks Utah's season and we wreck theirs.

I can walk into a game with a Ute fan, sit by them and discuss the game highlights and depart the stadium still speaking to the Utah fan. Can't say the same for the Y fans, and certainly both schools did their best to isolate and athletically hammer my Utah State. I just have a special dark place for the Y.

Hate is too strong a word to use toward these schools, but if one stepped in fresh pile of fresh out of the dog yellow-green dog poop, then one would have an idea of my regard for their collective treatment of Utah State University. IF YOU LOOK AT A STATE MAP WE ARE STILL ON TOP.

I want to want byu to win. It looks better for us to beat a team with an extra win instead of an extra loss. Plus all this Utah hype is nauseating. Corso really picked them to make the CFP championship?!?! That being said, I can’t help but root for byu to lose every game ever.

Corso probably drew the short straw and was forced to pick a dark horse team. No way anyone at ESPN thinks the pac12 makes the championship game.

I would cheer for ISIS University to beat BYU, but I want both schools to get swallowed up by a huge black hole somewhere in the universe.

I want Utah to win. The following is what I posted in another thread but it is probably more appropriately posted here:

I HATE both teams but HATE BYU more!

I hope: the game goes into overtime; they beat the $H!T out of each other; they play dirty (leg sweeps, ankle twists, uppercuts to the family jewels, etc., in other words all of the things that BYU has done to get named "Dirtiest Team in College Football"); BYU loses on a last second game ending play in similar fashion to the way Arizona lost to Hawaii; afterwards the two teams engage in a bench-clearing bloody brawl with Francis Bernard sucker punching a BYU player while the BYU player is being restrained by one of the coaches; all disciplinary actions are handled internally by both programs; both teams go on to lose the rest of their games; and after the season BYU football players, coaches, and staff go onto follow the BYU honor code by living chaste and virtuous lives; obeying the law and all campus policies; using clean language; respecting others; abstaining from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee, and substance abuse; participating regularly in church services; observing dress and grooming standards; and encouraging others in their commitment to comply with the BYU Honor Code.

If true, this is the correct answer. For some reason I thought they took the AAC slot though...

You're all crazy. I get the dislike of BYU fans, but the Utah institution has done a lot more to hurt USU over the years than BYU. And in the past few years Utah has shown an arrogance and disdain for USU that far outdoes anything BYU has done to USU in the past few decades.

The only argument I've seen here that makes me think it would be better for BYU to lose is the MW losing a bowl game if they're eligible.

Oh and to answer the question, I don't really care. But to the small extent that I do, because of what I just wrote I hope BYU wins.

The short answer, prior to last year's Ute bowl loss to Northwestern, we were their last OOC loss in 2012. They narrowly escaped with wins in the two subsequent games, and all their fans were upset with having to purchase new clothing after staining their drawers in each of those games. We're too much of a threat for a team from an "elite" conference. I respect the tar out of Wake for coming to our place and holding to the agreement to two more at your place.

They won't schedule us in any way other than a 2 or 3 for 1 basis. They are scared to come to Logan to play us.

I'm in the minority but it doesn't bother me that they don't schedule us. I would like it but I agree with their reasoning. They have 3 non-cons a year. They have to play BYU or BYU fans in the state offices will audit them. That leaves them with 2 open games, they generally schedule FCS so that leaves 1 FBS non-con game a year. If they put us down yearly that wraps it up.

They have been scheduling primarily G5 teams with home and homes (Wyoming, NIU, SDSU, etc.) but they have more P5 schools on the future schedules (Arkansas, Baylor)

If they were to play us every year, the national "brand" is hurt.

Also we are good enough that we can beat them and that would hurt their brand but we aren't good enough to add a lot of respect to their schedule.

I hope a home and home gets picked up soon but the closest would be 2025.

A BYU loss would hurt them more than a Utah loss would hurt them. BYU NEEDS to beat Utah and USU sooner rather than later. They are in a downward spiral and a win against Utah would be huge. A loss to BYU would sting to Utah fans, but it does nothing for their goals of winning the Pac 12, and they've won 8 in a row for crying out loud. I want to see BYU continue its course to obsolescence and continuing to lose to their rivals speeds that up.

I would like both to lose, but being that won’t happen is I want whoever wins to have enough injuries to ruin their season.

I hate them both, but anything that pushes BYU down in relevance only help us, imho. Utah is the Pac, so they will always have that advantage over us. But the further BYU falls, it only helps us in recruiting and fan and media perception.

The ACC schedule is so crappy we are having to play UNC out of conference this year just to play them for the first time since 2013. They are our most hated rival I want to play them every year.

That's crazy to play them out of conference. We'd love to play Utah, but it doesn't need to be every year. It would help if the PAC 12 went to 8 conference games. Our most hated Rival is BYU. Whenever an Aggie fan refers to "the school down south" they are referring to BYU, even though Utah is also south of us.

Short term gain:
BYU beats Utah, ruining their chance at a playoff berth. USU then beats BYU, keeping them from bowl eligibility. Utah media forced, kicking and screaming, to admit that USU has the best football team in the state.

Long term gain:
USU and Utah both beat BYU. Eventually, fans and the media (and the legislature?) insist that a USU v Utah game would be more interesting and important than a Utah v BYU game. Utah drops BYU in favor of resuming the USU v Utah series. Eventually, USU drops BYU as well, but not before taking the lead in the all time series. BYU becomes a punching bag for P5 away games, with a home schedule made only of SUU, Weber, ISU, and SJSU. Eventually, Weber drops BYU, citing “strength of schedule” concerns.
