I live in Wyoming. I am a member of the church and a graduate from the University of Utah. I root for all three teams I have attachments to: The Utes, The Cougars and The Cowboys.
First, any Utah fan who tells you that there is no beer in the stadium is either a) delusional b) oblivious or c) lying. I go to two or three games a year and can tell you first hand that my friends have all "smuggled" beer into the stadium.
Second, I am not proud of many of the actions of the fans at War Memorial, LES or RES, but I refuse to let the actions of the few reflect on the good nature of the many. I have great memories of all three stadiums.
Third, This ALUF discussion is petty and to many outsiders appears spiteful. We can do what is right, lead by example and live our lives according to the tenets of our beliefs. But to accuse an entire subset of the population of acts perpetrated by a few is as bad (or worse) than living with the same stereotypes we are victims of. Why? Because we understand the hurt that is inflicted by such generalizations and we should strive to be better.
Fourth, I can tell you with great certainty that if you were to poll Wyoming fans 8 out of 10 would tell you they have been treated worse at LES than at RES.
Last, When we talk about the Utes being scared to play us and taking the easy way out (which I think is true btw, it just doesn't make sense), we should be aware of the fact that every team in the MWC past, present or future sees us in the same light. Utah is seen as having capitalized on a great opportunity... we are seen as destroyers and do not have a great reputation concerning the way we have handled our business.
Looking in the mirror is hard, but is something we should do from time to time.
I really look forward to September when we can actually talk about football.
