Alex Smith hates me

You guys are going to have to help me out. I wasn't around for the rivalry in 2004, but I've always been curious about something.

Did BYU fans make "Alex Smith Hates Me" t-shirts?

You know, after Alex went off on BYU in an ESPN interview. Did BYU fans just go berserk with rage after he said he hates us? And when he called us "arrogant"?

What about when Morgan Scalley, Ute safety, said, referring to BYU "I hate those pricks. I hate 'em with a passion"? Did we flood the radio stations with calls? Did we adequately express our outrage?

I wasn't here, so I don't know.

Did the Deseret News and the Salt Lake Tribune write articles about sportsmanship and the lack of civility in the rivalry after Alex and Morgan went on their hate-filled tirades?

If you guys could let me know, that'd be awesome.

I was "here" for the 2004 season, and I follow BYU pretty closely. But honestly, I didn't even hear about those quotes until a few years later. Not sure why they got little to no air time while Max's never ends.
