    There are like 10 of the same people posting political stuff on there. Let’s make this the premier University of Utah sports talk site.

    Have you read it recently? What are you basing this opinion on? The first 5 pages have 19 football threads, 3 joke threads under Misc, 1 food thread, and 2 political threads.

     

    UFN has five times the unique traffic of all other Utah boards combined.

      That said, this site is SO much better to use and is easier to read and post.

      And when this site passes ufn in traffic it will come with its own set of negatives. Find me a well trafficked user comment oriented site without stuff you don’t like.

      Take the bad with the good. Get better at ignoring the stuff you don’t like. Welcome to the internet

        For instance, I am not a fan of byu threads in the football forum except during the week before  and the week after we play them. They are now in the rear view mirror and have no bearing on the rest of our season.  

        But others don’t feel the same way and every site will have multiple byu threads through the whole season.

      As you were. Stand down on this. It’s a site that has political posts mixed in with sports posts. Fail. 90% of the people checking in on Utah are lurkers. Bye bye Utefans.net

    It’s okay to like more than one thing.  Each site has its own unique value.

        Reminds me a line from a movie with Owen Wilson after Wilson’s friend, in a response to which girl he wants dibs on, chooses a brunette over a blond: “Good, cause I will take what I can get.”

          Started to google “hot bald bikini models” but while at work I think I’d better hold off…

    I finally unchecked politics over there about a month ago, and have found it to be a much more pleasant experience.

    UFN has just as much football talk as Utehub, and both are great places to go for Utah discussions.

      Problem is, every time I log in, some sort of reset or something. The box is checked and “member since” date is current date. I’ve been on that site since like 2001. It’s garbage. And I’ve donated more financially than I care to share to that page

    Seems active to me and much improved over a year ago. Regardless of what happens there I think Ute Hub already IS the premier University of Utah sports talk site AND MOBILE APP. I’m always working to improve this site and the app.

    My guess is that most of us post to both and felt both relief that Tony stepped up and sadness at Chris’ demise. I hope that both grow bigger and better.

    I rarely go there anymore because I ended up blocking a bunch of internet tough guys especially the dude w/ dick cheney avatar, looking at you.

    There are several folks who post on Utefans.net that I simple cannot stand.  All they post is political crap and they are so predictable and boring in their not so funny posts that I can’t go there anymore.  I love utehub way more than that other site.  It is a much more healthy environment and it mostly discusses sports which I love.
