    Mormons are required to be nice, it's a law. Plus they cant drink alcohol (thats a well known fact.)

    Yeah. I've never met a Morman that wasn't nice.

    They haven't forgotten what it is like to have a crappy team and suffer some embarrassing losses

    Their team is where we want to be. Good that they're nice, but they need us and the rest of their schedule to win some football games for BCS points. The Clones are happy to oblige them...

    Yeah, if you check out their boards, they *HATE* the official Morman team, BYU. And they know how to tailgate. Gotta love em.

    We love good football and we see a lot of similarities between Rhodes and our head coach.

    Re: What's with the nice notes from Utah fans? I think they are my 2nd favorite team

    I don't care if a fan base drinks alcohol and eats barbecue to excess or if they drink Sprite and eat lettuce sandwiches sparingly. When they practice the art of celebrating a football game day, they are OK in my book.

    I think our Utah brethren may have a lot of the same issues as us. They've been disrespected, they've had bad luck, and they've played the role of little brother to an in-state school.

    But now Utah is again having success on a national scale... and many of their fans are still humble if not downright friendly even with their success. They are just enjoying the ride - enjoying their success.

    These Utes "get it". Their fan base is generally great. If you ran into a boisterous jerk on October 9th, it is probably the exception. Every Utah fan I met was gracious and knowledgeable - and a couple were almost apologetic.

    I don't think Utah tried to run up the score October 9th - I think they are just that good. I don't think the Utah fans are here just to stroke our egos either - Utah fans are just that good as well.
