    Actually, when the Utes play byu they will have played 4 of the worst teams in college football.

    You have to admit, that was pretty funny. I crack myself up sometimes.

    Wins over Pitt, Iowa State, Air Force, San Diego and TCU will help us get to our third BCS Bowl this year, even though we have played some of the worse teams in college football (like byu).

    Since Ernest T.Bass keeps posting how Wynnie is the #6 QB in the nation on every board. I am going to continue to point out that on ESPN there are three of the mighty Utesies opponents on the bottom 10 list. Go check it out you overrated Utes. I don't care what you say, when 3 of the teams you have played are considered the worst teams in the nation you are overrated.

    I would only be a hypocrite if I claimed to have grown past finding joy in the failures of other (as you claimed, but continue to point them out in others obviously to gain some feeling of superiority). In some cases I have, grown past that, in Max's case, I haven't. Though I don't wish him ill will health wise (concussion are serious business), I can say I do take a certain joy in his having an awful game. Is it small of me? Sure, but it doesn't make me a hypocrite.

    Wynn must not be very good if Utah fans have to spend so much time attacking another QB just to make themselves feel better about Wynn.

    I agree with VegasUte. Ignore and disregard the TDS and sammyg. We'll take down byu in November and we have others to take care of before then (I'll be there to watch the historic last defeat of byu, in the MWC, by the UTES)

    I also think the Utes will take down Air Force. I am a season ticket holder at Air Force and respect their program completely as a team and as the great individual young men willing to serve our country... but they are not as deep or as powerful or as strong as the Utes. They will play tough and never give up but the team to beat this year is Utah. TCU will find out how tough the Utes are too.

    To quote you

    "by pointing out the errors of others, you seem to display the very conduct which you say you have overcome"

    Way to not be a hypocrite though.

    Ted, you seem to be obsessed with the ute fans who seem to be obsessed with BYU. Two wrongs don't make a right.

    Wynn has done nothing but prove himself game in and game out. Having superb talent surounding him does make a differnce but name a single quality QB that did without talent around them.

    Ignore the above irrelevant teams irrelevant troll he's just the latest version of a long line of bating trolls that post here then run over to every BYU thread and whine about Utah posters reading and posting on their threads!!!

    SammyG - ALWAYS there with his zooby retorts. NOTHING we haven't heard and proven wrong before! Are you going to show your face here after our next two wins? Are you going to admit you are wrong then? My guess is no! You zoobies seem to disappear with your tails between your legs when you are wrong, and that is a LOT!!

    Go Utes! On to the next victory with a seasoned, decorated, experienced and humble QB at the helm. Others wish they had him, but we do have him! Along with the best O line in the league, and the deepest and toughest offense in the league! My prediction: Utah 41 - AF 17 with one, or more, MWC conference players of the week AGAIN going to Utah.

    Go Utes! Go Crimson! Love the Crimson, but also the bitter zoo blue!

    Can't believe how you Ute fans can mess up this nice story that honors a very good quarterback by interjecting some disparaging comments about BYU QB Jake Heaps. That's classy. Let me help you out.

    I'll be watching some Ute football this week and next. Don't worry, I won't convert, but I am genuinely interested in seeing what the Utes will be doing these next few games. Better football is about to begin.

    Note to Ute QB: Congratulations, enjoy your honors and get yourself mentally prepared. You might consider putting your mommy on speed dial because you're going to be cryin' to her a lot...when your O line allows several sacks. Might consider wearing some extra pads and loading up on some anti-inflamatories. It will help the pain.

    Pressure is building...

    Great job Wynn, and also to the O-line for protecting him and the WRs who get lotsa yards-after-catch.

    Go Utes!

    Let's quit talking about the tds QB on this story. All praise goes to Wynn and the other just detracts from that!

    8 MWC weekly awards in 7 games for the Utes! Not too shabby.

    Wynn is a great leader and is humble. We are very lucky to have him as our QB. Give 'em heck at Air Force!!

    Go Utes! Love the Crimson!!

    Not bad for 2 1/2 quarters of play! Well done Jordan. Go get the Falcons this week! GO UTES!!!!

    The best thing about Jordan Wynn? He's only a sophomore, meaning that we'll have him for at least one more year!

    Very good job for J Wynn. I think his ability to perform, adapt and recover is amazing. He is a true "Field General"... most importantly is that he steps up and does it...no hype or anything...he just plays well and does the job as a seasoned vet.

    I believe he will do very well at Air Force and it will be another win for the Utes.

    The best thing is he is a great part of a great team with so many weapons to chose from. The depth is astonishing this year with so many good starters and so many to back them up.

    If you want to show Jordan Wynn the respect he deserves, leave the other quarterback from that other team out of the conversation.

    Good job JW you have been stellar and the 3 picks were an aberration as we saw in the CSU game.

    Utah is legit this year. I hate your team and always will, but its clear to this cougar fan your team is the real deal.

    Not surprising is the continued byu obsession by the yewties though, as evidenced in these posts.

    Nice work Jordan! Let the awards pile up and just keep preparing for the next week. You do it the right way by saying "thank you" and getting it done the next week. All class.

    Go Utes!

    strong work Wynn. I'd like to echo UtahManDan. I'm ok with teeing off on cougar fans, but let them come on here spewing their drivel first.

    Back to the Utes, I loved the fact that Cain came in and still had over 100 yards passing. That was awesome. It was also nice to see Shak out there. Dude is fast.

    Big game this week.

    Go Utes!

    I definitely thought Jake Heaps would win this. After all, he threw his second touchdown pass in 8 games! I'm surprised there wasn't another press conference at Iggy's!

  • Liberal Ted Salt Lake City, UT

    If Heaps can continue to add 81 yards to his game each year, by his 6th year senior, he'll be close to Wynn.

    Give it a rest bigutefan. Do you remember what happened to Alex Smith when McBride stuck him in he game as a true freshman? Heaps still has potential to end up being a good quarterback.

    I hope Jordan Wynn has another great game against AFA. It would be sweet to go into the TCU game undefeated.

    Go Utah!

    Congrats to Jordan, keep improving. Sorry you had to share the award with two yahoo's from Provo. I thought for sure Jake "the chosen one / savior" Heaps would have been up for the same weekly award as Wynn, afterall he did throw for 81 total yards of passing. Good thing he has a bye week to rest up, he must be exhausted, 81 yards, wow............ha! GO UTES!

    Congratulations to Jordan for an outstanding game on Saturday!

    We love this kid because, though he'll have an occasional down game (3 INT's against WYO), he always comes back strong and confident, and ready to produce.

    No head games with Wynn. He gets it done on the field.
