On Twitter we asked: "What do you think of the news of the day? What does it mean if Utah and BYU don’t play annually?"

The responses were predictably varied. Read them, then feel free to weigh in on Twitter or in the comments.

@juabwasp1 • Really disappointed in Utah & BYU administrations. A shame the losers are the players and fans, the ones it matters most to.

@utcyclist • #utes have bigger fish to fry now. #byu can have the scraps.

@kingranch51 • Sick of the constant comparing that everyone does about everything. The break will cool it off a bit.

@BYUGiff • @kingranch51 I’m not sure it will cool off the comparisons all that much. It’ll still be a "who did you play" battle.

@nicknewman801 • on one hand, sigh of relief #HolyWar isn’t completely dead. On other hand? Disappointed in weakness of Utah choosing to nix 14-15

@brovery • as a BYU fan, Props to UofU for finding a reasonable compromise to an uncomfortable situation.

@The1Justin • No rivalry game sucks. How do colorado and colorado state play each year? Utes should play byu Every year.

@Heinzjm • ...this means bragging rights for one set of fans will last a few years longer...

@gratefulred03 • I would much rather have Michigan than BYU.

@TashCot • #TruthIs It’s an upset that we won’t be able to look forward to Utah vs. BYU games annually. It’s simply not okay. #UTEFan #UofU

@ColYou • It’s amazing how much people don’t like change. As a Ute, I don’t mind so much. We’ll have plenty of Pac12 teams to hate.
