Now 4-5 heading to mighty Oregon next week, Utah could not afford to fall apart down the stretch like it did in this home game. A defense can be expected to be dominant for so long, but the group picked an awful time to pull an about-face.

Wilson’s play is bipolar compared to his performance in the first half of the season. He needs better protection. Whittingham can argue that Utah did not play it safe offensively in the fourth quarter, but the actual plays and statistics do not reflect that. It was not proactive, playing not to lose when it was leading, sacrificing momentum.

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!
