Utah is pretty well deserved

A large number of Ute fans have an almost bottomless resentment of BYU.

Any BYU article is the online newspaper is followed by online derisive comments from Utah fans. Plenty of those comments suggest that BYU get out of sports,

In an in your face act - the valley is full of P12 bumper stickers - unseen in any other P12 venue.

Yes there are Y folks pulling the hate Utah routine - but there is no equivalence.

It is as if Utah, with its P12 status and money, still has an inferiority complex it cannot overcome. That said - it's contempt for BYU have probably pushed it to greater scvomolishments.

I have been hoping CU would turn Utah into its natural rival, replacing the Huskers. But - that kind of rivalry requires some level of contempt - often arising from either resentment of the other program(we do care a lot about CSU - like it or not) or the joy of bring a giant killer. So a Utah hasn't happened. We almost see every team on the P12 as our buds - we are just happy to be here. That does not bred winning.

Mac turned this place around by creating a common enemy. We really need our own enemy number 1 today.
