Re: Am I the only one that remembers Utah football pre-Urban....

Nellie, Not to speak for Junky, but I don't think he was attacking the Mormon religion, at least it didn't seem that way. He was asking a legitimate question relating to the cultural atmospheres that surround Utah/byu and their stark difference from that of PAC-10 institutions (Cal and Oregon especi...

Re: breaking up the MWC

Or like Arkansas a former SWC member. My only question is, why would anyone leave the SEC? Arkansas came first to my mind as well, but like you said, why would they leave the SEC. I figured if any school would leave the promised land it would be a school that has more promise in the Big 12 than the...

Re: breaking up the MWC

Boise State = NOT LARGE ENOUGH Are you talking about straight enrollment? Or are you referring to more factors like amount of research funds, etc. If you mean enrollment, Boise has an enrollment of 18,000+ students, this is quite a bit larger than Stanford (just under 15,000) and is not far off of ...

Re: breaking up the MWC

The big 12 is now looking for another member. According to the fans there, they don't want TCU. Another Texas school won't be voted in by the current Texas members because it would give the current texas schools more competition for players, and the non-texas schools don't want more power in that s...

Re: breaking up the MWC

Interesting article. Possible but I don't know if I see it happening. In order to expand, all Pac-10 institutions must agree to the additions which makes it difficult enough. While Utah makes some sense, the addition of Colorado makes no sense to me. It would seem Boise State would be a better geogr...

Re: Wyoming Wrestlers defeat UVSU and Northern Iowa tonight

Wyo beat Utah Valley State 37-3. Only loss was Michael Martinez in a 5-3 decision against UVSU's #13 wrestler. Despite the unfortunate outcome against a VERY good Okie state team on Friday, this team is set up for a great finish with several wrestlers that should head to the NCAA championships. http...

Re: Does the fact that Afam is done for the year...

This is not a good injury. An ACL is never good, but that would have been better than a ruptured patellar tendon. A basketball player relies a lot on this tendon when doing anything...running, jumping, etc. Not to mention that the surgical repair is tricky and can lead to a very slow, drawn-out reco...

Predictions

Alright boys and girls, its game time! Any predictions for tonight's outcome? I'm feeling optimistic. I think the Pokes D will respond after the beating they took last week and the offense will want to show they can do something. With that in mind, I'm thinking an ugly, close fought Poke victory. Wy...

Stanford Owning USC

I know it's not Wyo related, but I couldn't resist mentioning the beatdown that the Cardinal just gave USC. Stanford 55, USC 21...most points EVER given up by USC. It's fun to actually see some competition in the PAC-10. Now having said that...Go Pokes!

Re: The Question That Will Never Die!

I voted for byu on this one. As you can tell by the name, I'm a SW Wyo native. I agree that geography has a lot to do with it. Even though the Wyo-CSU matchup may be more of an actual rivalry, I would almost always trade a win over the sheep for a beatdown on byu.

Re: Keys to the Game

Prosinski will do fine and Johnson will too they will be in double digit tackles...also no costly turnovers like seldons fumble a couple years ago Doesn't help when it's not even a fumble. Not to say we dominated that game or anything, but that was a huge swing play that should have been overturned...

Sure it wasn't against a Texas, a Utah or even a CU, but its still another one in the W column...I'll take it! Plus it will sure shut up those arrogant bastards from the sunshine state that think we aren't worth crap and "too white" (WTF?)...way to go 2000 miles from home and come back victorious......

Re: Disgusting

If you're so disheartened about Wyoming losing the last 8 years then find another team that's better and please don't bring that hopeless energy around Wyoming. I'm tired of hearing about it, because it's never going to happen. . What do you thinks going to fun about dropping to FCS? "Competing" ag...

CSU edges Weber 24-23

CSU wins a tight one. Weber was on the CSU 11 but fumbled it away at the end of the game. Sounds like this was closer than UW-Weber was. Bids well for us against CU next week and against the rammies later this year.

Texas Rugby...did you play rugby at UT? I played at Wyo from 02-07. You guys have a pretty good team, only played you once but we came out of it with a win.

Re: CU fans predicting UW win

Adding injury to insult...Hawkins gets blasted going in for a TD with less than 2 minutes left. He walked off the field thank goodness. Could be in question for next week.

Sounds like the CU fans are calling the season already...one of them calling next week's game in Wyo's favor, 45-17...interesting.

Re: CU Down early

Toledo just made it 23-3...CU actually had a big play (52-yard pass) but got called back for holding. Barring a huge 2nd half turn-around or some big injuries tomorrow for UW, I don't see why we shouldn't go into Boulder as a favorite or a very short underdog. Definately winable, especially after fa...
