that made them look like one of the best in the country. Just fudge the number a bit here and there, and presto, BYU is favored over Utah!
Let me preempt your "Why are you commenting on a BYU fan board?" comment.
(1) I go to the message boards where there is commentary on Utah football. This includes UteFans.net and our opposing team's board. Like it or not, the third message board where I can guarantee that football fans will be watching and commenting on Utah is the CougarBoard. It makes watching the game fun to interact with people who are also watching and clearly care about the outcome.
(2) I don't "live" here. I pop in, read a few comments, maybe make a comment, and pop out to another board (or put my kids to bed).
(3) It's fun to listen to people rip on BYU. There's no one who does that better than BYU fans on CougarBoard.
(4) Most of my friends are BYU fans. I watch BYU and Utah games with BYU fans. I do the same thing online.
