16 different players have found the endzone in 2010
Besides the obvious talent factor of having a capable QB and receivers than can
catch a ball (Something BYU is trying to figure out!) it's pretty clear that the
Utes have not had any competition to challenge them. That will change.I would guess that this stat has peaked and will anticipate this to start
trending downward now that tougher defense will be showing up on the field.Go Falcons, go TCU, go SDSU, go ND, GO BYU! Time to play real football
and challenge the Utes! Let's see if they are as good as their fans say they
are.This is going to be fun, either way, win or lose!
Jealousy is such a lonely word for Sammyg. The thing I like about this team is
that they are one of the top offensive and defensive teams in the country yet
very few of the players are in the top 20 in any category. This means there is a
team effort and it's not about any individual.
Utah over Alabama in a rematch of the 2008 Sugar Bowl, this time for the
national championship!I've said it since week one, and it's becoming
painfully clear to cewgies this is turning into reality.Both ESPN
and Sports Illustrated have stated recently Utah is a legit title contender.#1 Final Poll. Mark it down
The funny thing is that after Utah beats Air Force on Saturday, they will become
just amother lousy opponent according to Utah critics. Utah is capable of
beating Air Force badly. They traditionally play each other close but I think
it'll be differenttjis year. Thing is, Utah will be challenged next
week against TCU bu he other 4 games are close to gimmies. Utah's could lose to
Air Force if they play horrible and have a lot of turnovers. Notre Dame isn't
very good. Utah finishes 11-1 at worst. On a side note, this years
rivalry game might actually be one of the worst beatdowns byu has ever taken
against Utah. Go Ute'sUtah 41AFA 13
Sammyg... you mention better defenses... but then you mention ybu??? That's not
really fair to those other teams you mentioned that actually do have good
defenses. As far as individual players go... Schlauderaff, Taylor,
and Burton... so far... are top 20 (by position) ranked.
Unlike the Y, Utah has TD's to share...They could hardly muster a win at
Sammyg is right. Not just because the schools the utes will finish up playing
are better, but becasue even bad teams generally get better by the end of the
year in comparison to the beginning. (a bad team has lots of room
for improvement, but a really good team like the utes dont have lots of room for
improvement, so both get better, but the gap between the two diminishes).Air Force without Tew (Isnt he a native of Park City?) wont be that
strong. Utah should take them by 3 TDs.
Utes are well coached and improving, it is a beautiful thing to see.
@wwookieYes, Tew is from Park City, it's good to see a local kid
representing Utah so well.This offense is something special. They
really remind me of the 2004 team and I believe that no matter the level of
competition, the Utes will get it done. If the Utes go up on Air Force early,
expect this one to be over by the second quarter.
SammyG: Remember what happened the last time we were only favored by 7 on the
road? We won 68-9. Not saying that is going to happen again, but when we win the
game, are you going to be on here next week calling AF a cupcake or are you
going to man up and give us credit where it is due?My guess would be
the former. Zooby minds just can't get Used to success that isn't their own!Go Utes! Can't wait for Saturday!!
re: SammyGTo be fair, there should be an article about Jake Heaps
sharing touchdowns this year.1 to Hoffman1 to Ashworth1
to a Wyoming LinebackerThat's it. Of the 3 passes Saint Heaps has
thrown, 3 have gone for TD's, and all to a different person.
"Remember what happened the last time we were only favored by 7 on the road? We
won 68-9."When has Utah ever beaten anybody 68-9?Yewties
love making things up just so they can feel better about themselves.
anti BCS,its been a long year hasn't it........
antiUtah 68 to ISU 27. A Utah thrashing of a pretty good ISU team
that beat Texas on the road the next week. SammygKeep
beating that Utah schedule drum if it makes you feel better. Whaaaaaah!It has been a long year for the Y! It's not over either. You can expect a
major beat down at RES. Can't wait to see the boys in red mop up the field with
Sorry Anti - simple mistake. Should have been 27, not 9. My bad.The
zoo and the mighty Heaps with their three highest scoring games COMBINED barely
beat 68 points! Hmmmmmm. I think you have more things to worry about than if
someone on a Ute site accidentally got a score wrong. You zoobies are really
grasping at any straws now, aren't ya?Bitter, jealous zoobies make
me laugh!!Go Utes! Go Crimson! Rather have a future with
the Conference of Champions and a bed of roses on the horizon than a WAC
football "independence" and basketball games in high school gymnasiums!!
Utah math: Utah 68 to ISU 27 = 68 to 9I guess downplaying your
opponent's score to make yourselves look better is par for the course in
Uteville.It's going to be so much fun watching the shock and dismay
up on the hill when the Utes fall on their faces during the next five weeks.The mightier the Utes, the harder they fall.
Is Sammy G a rep for hostess? He's always mentioning cupcakes.....Thing is, he
forgets the biggest cupcake of all, BYU! You see, they will most likely go
6-6 this year. But ONLY because they play the same "cupcakes" that Utah plays.
For the life of me I can't figure out why he keeps the schedule thing going.
Other than four games, Utah and BYU play the same teams! Difference is, Utah
will beat them.
Utah could lose one or two games this season. It's very unlikely that they'll
lose them all however, especially BYU. There won't be any shock or dismay if
they lose a game or two. That's football. After all, this season is just
practice for next year. That is when the excitement will really begin. :)Go Utah!
AntiYou mean like the shock and dismay that comes from getting beat
by 2 WAC teams in one year? Oh wait, that was your team already, right? LOL!It is going to be so much fun watching Heaps get dragged around RES by
the boys in red! Go Utes, one game at a time!
