CRY ME A RIVER: Don't Mistake 'Sour Grapes' for a Rivalry

Some were happy, some were disappointed when the rivalry with Nebraska came to an end a year ago. For those who are missing the hatred from the Fuskers, you now have a new group of irrational, self-overrating, pissy, and (what I've found over the past 24 hours to be) HILARIOUS!

I guess Utah has never lost before, and judging by some of the comments, you'd think that they hadn't.

But as our former post-Thanksgiving rival, Utah's fan base has already shown a total lack of knowledge, perception, and an abundance of hypocrisy. The feeling I got was that Utah felt that they were relevant in the grand scheme of College Football. Now I'll be the first to admit, neither is Colorado, but my goodness...

Didn't you come from the Mountain West?
Oh you did... What's that?
You mean the ones that felt like playing you (and not in the National Title Game) was a complete waste of time and let down?
When was that?
Urban Who?
Alex Smith... Wait... What?!

Message boards have blown up by Utah Fans towards Colorado Fans. Here are some of my favorite posts (in Bold) and my response (italics).
We have a rival. Those rat bastard fans were cheering and their band playing when Kruger went down. They all need to be kicked in the nuts.


I thought that was f*cked up as well.

What did I tell you? Not too far off from Nebraska, who also claim to be the classiest fans on earth, loving all too much to point out the Satanic Rituals of CU Fans... Oh wait, that's not all. The username of the guy who posted this gem is, "Classless Ute"
Bad Bad Loss: The worse loss in years. This hurts. It is worse because what was on the line and who we lost to. Colorado. Ridiculous. Lets not forget that our wonderful defense decided not to show up several times today.

Your kicker missed 3 field goals, dude! Your offense amassed less than 90 yards on the ground, less than 190 passing on a defense that gives up 1,000 yards in the air per quarter... only scored 14 points off the worst defense in the Pac12...
The defense didn't show up? They only gave up 17 points... and forced 2 turnovers! Who is your defense? The f***ing '85 Bears?

I have no retort. I can’t deny Buff’em Up’s tradition argument. I still remember that big bowl win that Colorado had back in…which bowl was it?…I could have sworn there was one time where… Well I can’t remember, but evidently they won a Natty. I’ll ask my grandpa... Hold on tight to this win Buff fans. I’m happy to add fuel to the fire of this alleged rivalry.

Well thank you, that was very thoughtful of you. And to clarify, you're right. We only have 12 bowl wins... That is ZERO more than Utah has won.

Let's keep this fun going... shall we?

All Time Head-to-Head Record: CU 31-24-2... YUP

Bowl Appearances: Utah-16, CU-28... Gotta win to get there, right?

Consensus All-Americans:
Utah-4, CU-30... America!

Heisman Trophy:
Utah-Uhh?, CU-Check!

National Title: Utah-Uhh?, CU-Ding!
All Time Wins: Utah-627, CU-676... Didn't you get to play New Mexico, CSU, UNLV, & SDSU every year?

NFL Draft Picks: Utah-129, CU-257

Stadium Capacity: Utah-45,000, CU-54,000... Cute. And Thanks. We were used to being in a conference where our stadium was small. You make us feel well endowed.

Wives: Utah-5 to 12, CU-1... Ok, you win this one!

Act like you have been there before... I know you’re distant history.
History. We have it. You don't. And that's how we act... if it had been at home, we would have stormed the field. Get over it.
Clearly that is not the state of your program now, as you are acting like this was your nc game,
Did I mention we've actually won a National Title?
and it would have been just another win for the Utah program.
Just another win for the Utah program? You're right, you're used to playing horrid teams, aren't you?
Hold tightly to your past, its all you will ever be.
Why hold on to the past? Let's talk about the present... 17-14 FINAL. Thanks for having us.

Calm Down, You Lost a Football Game
Where does all of this sense of entitlement come from?

Look at it this way... We respected you guys enough to do all those things that bothered you so much. Though it's kind of funny... one of those "you're cute when you're angry."

No offense, but that win had nothing to do with you. It had all to do with our program, our seniors, and finally ending one of the most horrid streaks in our fine history.. Yes History. Tradition. History and Tradition.

It was a big deal. Relax... Nothing personal. Trust me.

You don't like the way we act. That's okay, we've heard that before. We'll try to tell our band to keep it down, as there is nothing funny or appropriate about the scary moment on the field Friday.

There was also a report about some Utah fans and Utah SID not very happy with our Offensive Coordinator for screaming out an obscenity while cheering for his team after a score. How dare our coach have fun while doing his job. Utah=No Fun. Colorado=Too much fun. We'll work on it...

But why don't you try and work on something yourselves. Know who you are. A newly emerged mid-major getting their shot with the big boys. We are a proud tradition trying to rebuild, there's no arguing.

But as for a rivalry? Nah, not yet. So calm down.

Tradition? Yes. Incomparable so don't even try.

To me, a rivalry is made of hate. So maybe we have become your rival, but not for us, sorry.

Hate? No. You're too cute for me to hate!
