Too tempting not to respond. Did anybody watch Oregon vs USC or Stanford vs UW
or AZ vs UCLA?Anybody here think Utah could roll any of those
teams?I have revised my statement that BSU could beat anybody. I
don't think they could beat Oregon or Stanford. And probably not USC.Sadly, neither could the Utes. Starting next year, Utah will be playing those
teams. Frankly, it will be a bit of a comedown. So keep feeling good while
you're in the MTN, reality will start next year.
After playing a wimpy schedule, the truth comes out. The Utes are not the same
caliber as TCU, Boise State, or Neveda. An injured, five turn-over, beat-up Air
Force team could and should have won this game. Talk about luck. As banged up as
the Falcons are, the Cougars would have won this. I'll be at the TCU game next
week to witness the destruction of the ute BCS bowl dream.TCU---38Utah--13
Dick might have had the closest pick on this game. Air Force even surprised the
most reliable Utah hater. Good pick on this one Dick. No more
comments from me saying you have zero cred.
I expect a closer game than the Utes are used to, and even a potential upset.If Air Force plays their game, they can handle Utah. Just like they
almost handled Oklahoma, the #1 team in the nation last week.
"Falcons, who were better a month ago than today." --DHThats because
they were playing cupcakes. Even then they barly beat Wyoming. Granted the OU
game was close but regardless AFA never looked like they were going to win.Utah is the better team with better playmakers. Yes Utah could end up
losing today but highly unlikly.Go Utes!!
I am not even a Ute man but even I know that only Utah can beat themselves
today. Upsets happen all the time. It will be fun to see how it all works out.
The point is Dick Harmon started it. OK, I'm, over it. Only read Harmon when
it's about BYU and we can all get along.
Wow people. Even in an article about Utah there is a lot of hate about BYU
floating around. Give it a break, ok? Prove that you are more interested in
Utah than BYU.As for the game, I think Utah will win. I could be
wrong. I do know that any given week, any team could beat any other team. And
AFA is no UNLV. It depends on how well each team does, and AFA is definately
capable of beating the U, but I believe that today the U will be too much for
AFA to handle. Don't be quite so confident about next week, though.
Don't worry, little bros to the south, we'll make AFA pay for beating up your
"reloaded" team. You beat up on the tds, you'll have to answer to
big brother, PAC 10 bound, the might Utes!
The Utes will roll today...no one in the country can match their speed or
depth...you aint seen nothin' yet people...the Ute's are just beginning to
unload; we will get a idea of how powerful they are today, but next week we will
witness the full unrelented force of Utah's offense and the wall of their
defense. Go Utes!! Make us proud!
Extreme paranoia from you yewties today, more than most day.NewMexicoyewty,let's consider the logic(or lack thereof of your
comment)Are you suggesting the yewtah players are going to read
Harmon's article today and suddently become overly confident and decide they
dont need to try hard at today's game?Or are you suggesting
that the fan base will read Harmon's article today and become overly confident,
thus causing the team to lose?Either of these shows pretty poor
reasoning skills. Especially after you state the national media has
the yewts as overwhelming favorites. You dont worry about the overhype caused
by the national media but suddently you worry about a Dick Harmon article
written the day of the game causing undue confidenc within the team or fanbase
which will cuase the yewties to lose?They seriously need to teach a
"reasoning 101" class for all you yewties. Your football team is
impressive, even I can admit that. But your reasoning skills is severely
Is he kidding? AFA is very capable. Utah played the worst teams in the country
for 90% of their schedule up to now. AFA can easily take down Utah. Utah has
not been tested, AFA has played some great teams already. No way utah steam
rolls. AFA is such a good team this year.
es, the subtle digs of another Y fan (Harmon) who when even when giving a
complement about the Utes has to temper it with such dribble as saying that Air
Force was better a month ago (you know, when his mighty cougars played them).
All this proving once again that BYU's fans are the most passive aggressive fans
out there. Their bitter jealousy is subtle as a freight train rolling by at 80
miles an hour.
I think it will be low scoring, like Utah 28-0. AFA will slow the game down.
They don't have any athletes to keep up with the Utes. Can't wait for the TCU
Go Air Force! Fly high Falcons!!
Maybe it's because Harmon normally writes about the Cougars. I don't know. Some
power or force though is making the comments - comments by Ute fans - sound like
comments from BYU fans, paranoia ("He saying all this because he wants Utah to
believe the hype that the national media has the Utes as overwhelming favorites
to beat Air Force. Reality of it all, him like other media outlets want the Utes
to lose." - as though the Utah players are reading Harmon's game day column) and
calling people "haters." Relax, people. Although Dick Harmon is a
staunch BYU lover, he doesn't "hate" the Utes and is not part of a media
conspiracy pushing for the Utes to lose. I personally feel they will handle AF
with no problem - too much speed, to much skill, too much team cohesiveness.
This team approaches the 2004 team in my personally power rankings, and may well
exceed the 2004 in final results. They're that good.
Dick can't report unbiased on Utah even when he tries, you still feel the hate.
Everything still has to be about BYU.Jab one:"Troy
Calhoun already set down his platitudes this week when he called this the best
Utah football team ever. Of course, when the Falcons played BYU, he said
freshman quarterback Jake Heaps might be the best quarterback to ever play at
BYU someday." - Dick HarmonAnd the ESPN interview about Utah going
to the PAC10 was just a wah wah about BYU too.
Let me be the first to call this. If Air Force wins, the haters will say, "See?
I told you. Air Force is too good for the Utes."Yet if Utah wins,
the haters will say, "I'm not impressed. Air Force isn't very good. Talk when
you actually play somebody decent." It's a no-win for Utah with the naysayers.
However, I don't care about anything the haters say. Utah is one of
the best teams in the country this year, and that will finally be recognized
when the Utes beat TCU next week. By the way, Air Force is not the
best team we have faced this year. Pitt is. Utah 35Air Force
As a Ute fan, don't listen to Harmon's article! This dude is pro-BYU and Ute
hater! He saying all this because he wants Utah to believe the hype that the
national media has the Utes as overwhelming favorites to beat Air Force.
Reality of it all, him like other media outlets want the Utes to lose.Utes, take it for what it is but play this team as if they are favored to win
and they are the ones you have to prove yourselves! Stay FOCUSED! One game at
Dick,Please don't write stories about the utes. You have ZERO credibility
(even when it comes to your beloved cougs). Nice predictions ... umm, wait
... not really.TCU score 48? maybe 35 at the most. Have you watched
the frogs play yet this year?And giving air force 21? Not going to
happen, even if Air Force controlled most of the game, that would be their
maximum score (They like those 10 minute drives that don't result in a lot of
tds and high scores). Again, the only falcons game you've watched is when they
beat down the cougs.
Dick, a piece about the Utes? Really? What were you thinking? It must be the
end of days and an even slower day in Provo with Bronco and his crew.
