In a one-point loss, Utah failed on a two-point conversion after scoring a touchdown to make it 7-6 early in the first quarter. Certainly, it was unorthodox to go for two points that early in the game.

Utah gained just 17 yards on 13 plays in the fourth quarter, its only first down coming through a penalty. Wilson threw two interceptions in the fourth quarter. But Whittingham insisted that play calls did not become conservative as the Utes nursed a double-digit lead in the final stanza.

I have a lot of respect for coach Kyle, but I think he must have been in a different 4th quarter then the rest of us. They completely abandoned the game that got them to the 4th quarter with the lead. And I loved the game up to that point. They really gave this one away and coaching is an appropriate place to put the blame. Usually Kyle is the best in the state.

Rhett, Rhett, Rhett, I am surprised your still writing. I figured you would be hiding since your projection that USU would not win six games. I suppose your okay since you are writing about fact now, instead of conjecture. Just to remind you, USU is bowl eligible with 2 games to play. Back to the drawing board for you Rhettski!
