Great article on a guy who was overlooked by us down south. I hope he gets some
playing time.Good luck Utes. I hope you send Pitt home eating humble
pie. There are plenty of us cougars routing for you.
I'd love to stick it to the Big Easy big time. That conference has been lame for
years and there's no need to let them out of the wood shed just yet. Stick it to 'em Utes, let's show them that East #15 = West #30+.
Vakapuna is LDS, is returned mish, and bro played for BYU.Is the
recruiting worm starting to turn already?Utah always gets top non LDS
players, but Vaka should have ended up at BYU.Just sayin.
Go Utes! Will be fun on Thursday. So just for fun - here's a
guess/prediction:Pitt - 17.....Utah - 27Oh yeah...Go
Key to victory will be if Coach W has whacked the penalty bug outta his boys. If
there's been one weakness we've shown in the past couple of years is the
propensity for STUPID penalties that make us have to work harder to win - but
win we do with regularity. However, I don't think we can afford to give up yards
on flags in this game boys and girls. If we do, we loose. Play disciplined ball
and our UTES start with a big W.
Great for him!I hope Utah plays really well and shows Pitt a great
game. Hopefully a win and a solid performance.
I listen to ESPN radio a lot when I can. Just this morning, Colin Cowherd
praised Wynn as a solid up and coming QB. He said that Utah would win easy. The
only mention the zoo got was that Locker should take them apart easily.When you spend all your time listening to KBYU, you won't hear much press
about UTAH.Go Utes!! The Future is Crimson - get Used to it!!
no way uties win this one pitt will be done and on to their postgame meal by
halftime expect utah to lose to pitt unlv csu wyoming sdsu air force tcu new
mexico iowa state notre dame and of course byu all will be by 20 plus points
they might win one against sjsu, but dont count on it have fun
losing uties you deserve it you dont work hard you dont do the right things on
the field to win
@ogmson: first, the Pitt game is already sold out - the weather this week won't
make people give their tickets back. But since you brought it up, the forecast
for Thursday sounds pretty much perfect, so I suspect most of the 46,000+ (I
know that's over capacity, but they've been selling SRO tickets for about the
last 10 days) will make use of their tickets.Second, I'm not too
worried about which team shows up. The lackluster performance in 2007 at SBS
has not been seen since then. We've lost a few games in 3 years, but never
because we just didn't show up. On the other hand, there have been many solid
performances similar to the Sugar Bowl.Third, Coach Whit teaches his
players that the games are won on the field at game time, and not in media votes
(or in t-shirt slogans dreamed up for fall camp, for that matter). I'm sure
he's far more concerned with the opinions of his coaches and scouts on Pitt's
actual abilities and tendencies, than with where the Big East media guessed Pitt
might finish the season.
I'm out of the country but the last line I saw was Pitt by 3... what happen?????
@ogmson jesus loves you.
What's the line on this? Utes by 3? No way. Utes by 10, at least. I bleed
blue, but I'm rooting hard for the Utes here!
@SoCalI never mentioned the "kewgs" in my post...U did though. Obsessed r
we? Funny how you can couch past success on 2 BCS games, yet are only 3 days
away from the opener and ther are NO articles on Pitt. You'd think your local
homers would be doing their homework on Pitt's nationally tauted RB, and or
overall coverage. Looks like even the local homers don't care much
about U till gameday. Says a lot about your local relevance...nevermind
@ gub-ment-cheeze Are really that lame? First off, the game is still a few
days away. (plenty of time for "press") Second, Pitt is on the other side of
the country and the local press doesn't know much about them. Third, you know
how irrelevant your team really is when you have to make stupid comments about
the Utes in order to make yourself feel like your cewgs are relevant at all.Can you say BCS buster (2 times) = national pressOh, sorry, I guess you
can't. my bad
Sorry BP, as much as I would like for you to believe it, but all you have to do
is ask about 44,000 Ute fans about being blessed on the field and off and they
will tell you it doesn't happen. Then they will mock you for even thinking that
good behavior, hard work and diligence in preparation mean anything. Hypocrits.Speaking of PITT. First, Ute fans have to hope the
weather is perfect so RES will be sold out.Second, Ute fans have to hope
that the Ute team that beat Bama shows up and not the team that showed up to
play in SBS. Third, Utes have to hope that the AP writers were all stoned when
they named a Big (L)east Team in the Top 40.Vegas has the Utes by 3.
Tragic. Friday would be a great day if it was Panthers by at least 17.
Funny...no press about the upcoming game agianst Pitt. Hmmm, who is irrelevant
I'm glad to see a young man like this one make such an unselfish choice (coming
back to be close to his ailing parents). It looks like he may be blessed for his
unselfishness by getting reps with a great team.
I knew this young man and his family when he was a small boy.The
family is purely stellar in character. I am thrilled to see him succeed!
A bcs season...not likely! And after this year, never again. USC will own u!
Here's to Mr. Vakapuna and the rest of the Utes having a BCS season! Go Utes!!!
Unveiling signs? Unless you were at Fanfest then you have already seen both the
Fiesta Bowl and Sugar Bowl signs.
Oldrunner, The game is on vs. All three major providers (Dish, Direct, and
Comcast) have that channel...
Kameron,I can’t agree with you more.A real dumb idea. I
plead with the U athletic administration to scrap this idea —
Sounds like it will be a good game. Too bad it can't be seen by anyone.
Is it a good idea to unveil the Fiesta Bowl sign in front of the team you simply
destroyed? Pittsburgh appears to be tougher than they did when we played them
in the Fiesta Bowl. Can't wait.
I can't wait to see you carry the ball for the Utes Tauni! Go Utes!
Thursday is still too far away. Cant wait to see the Utes back on the field. A
sound win over a top 20 team will help the Utes start jumping some teams in the
top 25. Lets hope this team can stay grounded and not get big heads with the
loads of talent they have.Hope to See Vakapuna cleaning up a lot in
the 3rd and 4th quarters. He could be the man next year at the RB position. We
also want to shakerin back on the field soon. With concussions being such a hot
topic right now, the Utes have to be careful how they handle that. Shakerin has
NFL talent, but if hes prone to concussions, he wont get much of a chance to
show it. Heres hoping for the best!Go Utes!
