Unholy war

I am disappointed to see Cris Hill schedule BYU. This rivalry had a place when Utah & BYU were competing in the same conference. Things have changed. Utah should be engaged in preparing for and winning conference games.

The Utah/BYU game has produced so many false stereotypes and misinformation. The irony is that many Utah fans are devout Mormons. The University of Utah was started as the U of Deseret by Brgham Young himself. Most of the current Church leaders are Ute alumni. Most Ute fans don't get drunk at the games, some do. Most Y fans are decent folk but some are not. I have been mistreated at LES. Ute cheerleaders and coach's wife were attacked in Provo. The rivalry wastes so much emotion that Utah should be directing to conference opponents.

Utah leads the series by a substantial margin and has nothing to prove. Sure BYU wants to fill their stadium but Utah plays a high level opponent every week and BYU is a distraction from winning the PAC12 and going to the Rose Bowl.
