    This is just an observation from a Ute fan about goings-on on this board and on other PAC-10 boards. First let me speak to the post below under the name "utesrus". UtesRus is a long time member and benefactor of utefans.net and I'm proud to say the realUtesRus is a good friend of mine, good enough that I can guarantee that the real UtesRus did not write that post. Yes, 'Rus has a bit of an ego and he can definitely talk smack with the best of them but the post I just read is totally not his style.

    I've also observed on other boards where other utefans.net names have been hijacked. Not only UtesRus but also Portland Ute who also is a longstanding member of utefans.net has had his name hijacked to other PAC-10 boards and based on the level of condescending jerkness posted under Portland's name my guess is that it's the same bitter fan. Also there seems to be a plethora of posters that claim to be fans of other PAC-10 schools that are running smack on the Cal board, bruingold.com, etc., that is unquestionably familiar. Where is this smack familiar from? The good, stalwart, pious and (allegedly) humble fans of one Brigham Young University. In order to help you spot those hiding behind the anonymity of the message board here are some ways to spot these trolls posing as other trolls:

    1. They come on as just a total and complete jerk. This isn't the Utah fan. We know and we understand that we were invited to the PAC-10 as a partner of Colorado. We understand that our television base isn't as large as yours and that you were the first pick, not us.

    2. They'll find a way to bring BYU into the conversation even if it's made to appear that it's the Ute taking a shot at BYU. This is to reinforce their stereotype that Utah fans are obsessed with the Cougs.

    3. They'll bring up the past. This is particularly true of the BYU fan attempting to pose as a fan of another school. Such as "I'm a Cal fan and I would much rather have BYU in our conference. BYU has an NC, a Heisman, A Doak Walker award winner, an Outland Trophy winner and they've been to more than twice as many bowl games as Utah". Wow, that's a lot of knowledge of BYU for a Cal fan.

    4. Stadium size. Lavell Edwards seats 65,000. Rice-Eccles seats 45,000. That's nice and it's a constant point that the BYU troll will bring out which leads to

    5. "Utah can't even sell out it's own stadium unless they're playing us". While that was admittedly true in the 80's, where BYU fans seem to be stuck, it isn't anymore. In fact over the past three years attendance at Utah has run about 103% of capacity and while nothing's been announced plans are in place to begin expansion probably at the end of the year. The south end zone where we would be expanding includes the locker rooms so I don't see that working during the year.

    Just a note that will hopefully clarify that the post below that allegedly came from utesrus and others like it are a small group of bitter fans that are trying to give you an image that isn't true. I can tell you that as Ute fans we are more that excited to be in the PAC-10 with you.

    Yeah, we've already been visited by "Portland Ute", as well as somebody claiming to be "The Real Portland Ute" who has disowned the trolling of the first Portland Ute. As neither has yet agreed to submit to DNA testing, the issue is still unsettled.

    Thanks for the primer on spotting a BYU fan in disguise trolling as a Ute. This will be far more efficient than our previous identification method of asking them to show us their underwear...

    BTW, I feel like a bit of a jerk bringing this up, but you spelled "slut" wrong. You get an extra "c" in there... :smile2:

    I know Portland and I know he's pretty pissed about the whole thing. But welcome to our world. Where BYU fans have so little pride in their own program they have to run down the program that's passed them up to make themselves feel better.

    I dunno if utah is gonna be our rival if this kind of posts keep happening. It is far too different from the fuskers we are used too. Humility in a fan base? A focus on the present? :wtf:?

    Welcome to our world where you will have to play little brother in a meaningless non-conference game that probably won't stack up to the games you will be getting in-conference. Although BYU can be pretty good, this game will be a bummer for you since it will remain their super bowl and you will most likely move on to other things as the years pass.

    Most peculiar to have one fan base trolling a (soon to be) rival team on a Buff board.

    I don't recall Oklahoma fans coming disguised as fuskers.

    Maybe they're just trying to convert us. This might be their only way of making friends considering they can't drink, smoke, look at women, etc...

    Actually that is the real Utesrus. I'm sure there have been other trolls and I don't doubt that, but slcut84109 needs to man up and admit that it is him and get him to apologize. I can provide evidence from other boards where the same Utesrus posted as well as being very familiar with posts he's made saying similar things he's said here. If in fact slcut84109 really does know him, he needs to get him to retract his post here not try to cover it up as being from some other source.

    Uterus' post here:
    "I come over to your site and show good will and you insult me? I don't get it. That's ok, we are going to kill you when we play in 2012. "
    http://www.allbuffs.com/showthread....orado-football?p=678237&viewfull=1#post678237

    Uterus' post on cougarboard.com in his attempt to try and troll BYU fans about going to the Big XII:
    "I had no feeback, but whatever. If you're going to be a tool about it - FINE. That's what I get for being 'civil' to you jerks. I'm done with you idiots, I throw you a bone and you're a totally 'yewt' - as you might say."
    http://www.cougarboard.com/noframes/message.html?id=5644574

    In fact you can search the name utesrus on cougarboard and find not a few posts very similar to his troll attempts here.

    So basically what I'm saying is that Uterus is a confirmed and known troll on multiple boards. He's just now targeted yours. So basically if slcut84109 knows him and denies it's him, he's lying to you and I'm calling him on it.

    Man up and admit it's him and get him to retract slcut84109 or let the record show he's a troll and you're defending and covering him up.EDIT: Sorry for the bold when I first posted. Didn't know it would translate over.

    Yes, the "psuedo troll" is unique to the Zoob-Utah rivalry IMHO. Get used to it from BYU fans. They don't have much else to do with their time nowdays besides refrain all the good vices in the world and wait for another invite to the Vegas Bowl.

    These troll are exhibiting truly bizarre behavior. Pretty sure no fUCLA fans have been on here posing as USC fan. As a whole, I've been just confused by the Ute fans that have posted.

    And how do we know you're not just somebody claiming to be UrbanTGator making all these claims about the claims slcut made about Utesrus? More to the point, why should we care?

    Honestly, these guys are supposed to be our new rivals, and so far they're doing a great job of making me less interested in them than I am in your average Wyoming fan.... :huh:

    Here are more posts by the same uterus on Cougarboard that confirm it's the same douchebag that has posted on your board. The trick for you buffalo fans will be getting him to admit it and retract his statement.

    And it may be true that he is a "respected" poster on that abortion of a message board utefans.net (warning, it will make your eyes bleed the formatting is so bad) but that doesn't exclude the fact that he's a troll on every other message board BUT Utefans.net and now on yours.

    So for clarification. Respected poster on Utefans.net = confirmed troll.

    More Uterus troll posts on cougarboard.com that ring eerily familiar to his troll posts here :
    http://www.cougarboard.com/noframes/message.html?id=5353634
    http://www.cougarboard.com/noframes/message.html?id=5408927
    http://www.cougarboard.com/noframes/message.html?id=5414505
    http://www.cougarboard.com/noframes/message.html?id=5414521
    http://www.cougarboard.com/noframes/message.html?id=5450163

    And the list goes on and on and on. It's him, I've given evidence of such and now I bid you all adieu. We have our own message board over at cougarboard.com and that is where I hang out. So I won't continue to fill yours except for this once just to give you fair warning of what's to come because when it comes to dealing with Ute trolls Cougars and Buffaloes are in the same boat.

    Go Buffs! Gore those Utes and then Trample them for good measure.

    Hey guys, sorry. I was just over here trying to explain what's going on and to show that most Utah fans are genuinely interested in joining the PAC-10 along with the Buffs and that the vast majority of Utah fans are and will be interested in engaging in honest and serious discussion of the new PAC-12. I also wanted to point out the typical mindset of BYU fans when it comes to running smack so you would know the difference.

    I meant no harm and am sorry that some chose to come here in attack mode deriding a friend of mine and a very strong and very good Ute fan. For now I'll step back and let this little firestorm die out.

    Actually, The trick is to care enough about the BYU/UU argument on a CU Football Board to really care if it is him or not.

    So if I may ask a question (violating my own personal rule for living #1 - never engage a Mormon who comes to your door in conversation), if Uterus is actually a BYU troll posing as a Utah troll, wouldn't you, as a BYU troll posing as a BYU non-troll, naturally try to convince us that Uterus was actually a Utah troll posing as a Utah troll?

    Stop apologizing like a woman for something that was obviously not worth apologizing about. Utah is a much better program than CU. That is obvious, even a CU fan with half a brain would acknowledge that.

    No, but there was that alleged Husker fan who worked at the University of Texas that spread that malicious rumor about Sam Bradford's alleged cocaine use.

    This BYU false identity nonsense is child's play in comparison.

    So put up or shut up. State your case. Compare and contrast both programs. If you chose to use 2005-2009 records and stats as the basis of your conclusion, then say so.

    And then there was that slighted Texas fan (well the entire fanbase got on board I guess) who falsely alleged unfair recruiting practices in the case of DS. And really the guy who threatened to kill nebraska's DC wasn't a troll, just a fan, but still, it makes these BYU Leopard fans (or whatever the **** they are...the fighting Jim Mcmahons?) or the Utah Utes, or whoever's fanbse it is that keeps posting over here seem refreshingly cute. Sure they're not witty, and so far they haven't raised the pulses of more than a Buff fan or two. But still, it's kind of cute.
