Naval:And if the Utes lose, they grab something out of the post game
interview, something that a TCU player said and, defelct all attention from
their inability to do it on the field.You've been there and done
worf,Whittingham saw the light and converted. There is still hope
for you...if you humble yourself. You did confess that you are from Mcallen.
That's a big first step. :)
afro14: "When the Utes win this one, what will the cougar fans
say?"I know the answer to that. We've been there and done that
already...with both TCU and Alabama in our 2008 season. Do you
remember any of these?.....(1) "Utah got lucky. They would lose
that game 9 times out of 10."(2) "Utah won on account of good old
fashioned Home Cookin'. No way they would have won that game if it were played
in Ft. Worth or on a neutral field."(3) "TCU wasn't worthy of their
Top-5 ranking. They should have really been ranked somewhere around #16-20.I wouldn't be surprised to see a new twist as well. Perhaps some sort
of conspiracy twist wherein the BCS would prefer to see an undefeated Utah team
over an undefeated TCU team since Utah will be part of the BCS next season, thus
taking their prestigious bowl and laudatory season with them, thus crippling the
MWC's hopes of earning AQ-status points.BUT...we'll have to
beat the Frogs first. That hasn't happened yet. I expect an intense game.GO UTES!!!
Sorry Yewetes but I have to go with Lou Holtz on this one...TCU for the win.
However, if you were in the PAC 12 this year you'd be playing UO for the
Conference Championship...hopefully you will do this in 2012.As a
Coug, I am still planning on winning at the RES on Nov 27th. Dreams can come
Well judging over the past forty years--The Cougs have the highest win and TV
revenue totals in the conference. The Cougars have been the best thing for the
conference. The Utes are good this year because of BYU. Here are
some reasons for that:1. Using the BYU passing game.2. Using
ex-BYU players for coaches.3. Decades of receiving BYU TV revenue. Although no ute fan will acknowledge this, the Cougars have
nothing to be ashamed of and will make a comeback.
The only outcome that would surprise me is if Utah wins in a blowout. It would
be great if Utah could beat TCU but if they don't, that's fine. I
don't know where some of you haters think that this game will be my worst
nightmare. This season has been awesome and will continue to be so. Utah wasn't
expected to do this well in the first place. This year is just a great
opportunity to get ready for the move to the PAC-12...practice, if you will. If I were a hater, with my team going independent next year and our
in-state rival moving to the fertile recruiting grounds of the PAC-12, this
season would be nothing but a nightmare. Yeah, Utah will be just
fine, win or lose this Saturday...and I'll sleep well. I can only imagine how
the haters will sleep if Utah manages to beat TCU. :)
@ hedge hoggsYou pretty much listed all my hopes and dreams that
will come as a result of a Utah win over TCU!!! However, you forgot
one.That cougar fans will stop being delusional about their own team
and jealous of the better football program in the state. However, just like
everything else that both you and I stated, this hope is in vain.Good luck against UNLV, the zoobs are going to need all the help they can get.
Veritas: "Someone help me out here. Is that the number * team in the nation?
Utah fans... #8??? #8??? really?" Uh...no, that would be #5. Did
that clear things up for you?SammyG: "I still don't see a NC even if
the Utes run the board. Plenty of stronger programs out there."I
would have to agree with you there partially. If we go undefeated, which is a
great likelihood if we beat TCU, we will be in a BCS game, just not the NC. Too
many things have to happen which makes it unlikely. Now the plenty of stronger
programs out there part is an opinion only. Could not possibly know unless it
was played on the field, just like we did against Alabama and we will Saturday
against TCU.Go Utes! On to victory #9!See you at Game
BYU should drop down to Division I-AA or II. That way they can feel good about
Worf, you are a Ute hater. A "Zoobie". Name me one other top-ten team in the
country that could have beaten San Jose State, New Mexico, UNLV, and Wyoming the
way the Utes have!Just one.I will wait.Can't
do it, can you.
Proving... not providing..... thanks a lot droid autospell!!!
I consider myself one of the saner Utes fans, and am in no way going to
guarantee a win.... but food for thought. Doubters/Haters... remember in 04 when
there was no way we would go undefeated... win a bcs game... in 08 when there
was no way we'd beat byu at the end, and a snowy day in Miami the day we beat
the tide... this year when there was no chance of us beating pitt, beating a big
12 team on the road, were going to fall asleep and lose to AFA...... now tell
Utah they don’t stand a chance against TCU... Keep telling Utah what they
can't do!!! They genuinely seem to enjoy providing you wrong!!!Go
"Dreams are starting to come true"This player is off his rocker! Get by
TCU, ND, SDSU, and BYU, then start to say that. Barely getting by AFA with 5
turnovers and playing the best defensive team in the nation coming up is a
recipe for shattered dreams. TCU has demolished all their opponents this
season, and Utah barely got by their two best....BARELY. I can't
possibly see Utah winning...not by a long shot. TCU will jump Boise in the
polls after the win.
Ute need no gimmicks to win. No blackout, no special under-armour unis, just the
best team of the field.And we all know SDSU and BYU would rather
give up than play the game.And of course, whoever plays them in the
NC game will be so afraid to play, they will just hide and the Utew will a
NC.Then Afro14 will go put on his red sweatshirt, stand on top of
the biggest hill in the state and proclaim himself a Utah fan.People
will offer good paying jobs, proposals of marriage will flood in, free cars,
food and clothing for all fans."Zoobs" will be rounded up, moved to
the desert, and not be allowed to post ever again.I'm so excited for
this weekend. GO UTES!!! (Unless it doesn't work out
that way, and they end up playing in the Independence bowl...)
Reality will soon set in. The Utes will lose at least two games this year. They
were lucky with Pitt and Air Force. Beating teams like San Jose State, New
Mexico, UNLV, Wyoming, etc, doesn't mean you're at the level of TCU, Boise
State, Oregon or Nevada. It's not that I hate the Utes, but it's nice to see
some their fans eat crow. The utes were my second favorite team and I enjoyed
seeing the state of Utah well represented in sports, but their fans are rude
compared to what I've seen at Air Force, TCU, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ohio State,
and Alabama. Want to see classy fans? Go to Notre Dame! Their sober and
Can't play sloppy like they did in the 4th quarter against AF & expect to win.
Lucky they still won the AF game. GO UTES!!!!!!
TCU by 7. Both teams are good but both are over-rated.
Utah will be no match for TCU. What a shame that ABC's coverage the other night
included no mention of TCU or Utah in BCS game scenarios...
OnlyU | 9:50 a.m. Nov. 1, 2010 Draper, UT "Zoob fans...here's the
difference-we've beaten TCU 3 out of the last 4."The other
difference is that Utah fans continue to call third grade names.Hey,
I like the stat. 3 of 4 against TCU.So if that means you should beat
TCU, logic would carry that if that means anything, BYU, owning 3 of the last 4
beats Utah.Personally, I'm going to wait and watch the game, and see
the better team win...But, that's just the way I roll.
When the Utes win this one, what will the cougar fans say? That TCU was
overrated? That they played a soft schedule, that Utah got lucky? My personal
hope is that I don't see a single cougar fan post on the comment board after the
game on saturday, but I know that just won't happen. There's always
an excuse, some lame reason to instill hope into the cougars' fans that they
will be able to hang with the Utes and somehow get a victory at the end of
november. Sorry cougs, no Max Hall miracles this season, it's
looking more and more likely that the Utes will go into the Holy War 11-0 and
the margin of victory will be very large for the Utes.I'm so excited
for this weekend. GO UTES!!!
It is sad how far BYU has sunk. Now our biggest week of the year is the week
that Utah plays TCU. Sad, and it will only get worse for us. Next year Utah
will play a PAC-10 schedule and we will play a bunch of teams from the WAC.
Wonder how my fellow BYU fans are going to sell Idaho vs BYU in Provo the same
day that Utah is playing Oregon, ASU, Cal, Stanford, USC etc etc etc in Salt
Lake. Sad, just sad.
Utah will need to be laser focused for this game. I am not as confident as other
Ute fans that Utah will win this game. It could happen and I certainly hope it
will, but if I were neutral on this, I would bet on TCU winning.Go
OnlyUoob fans should wait to celebrate a victory. Your usual arrogance about
beating TCU in the past will not win this one. Wynn doesn't translate to win
against the Frogs.
I am glad Utah gets to play another strong team this year during the regular
season. This will show TCU and/or Utah's true colors. Hope the winner gets to
take the national championship (and does!).
Love the confidence of the U fans. Top programs and their fans should feel and
expect that they can beat any opponent and win every week. The U is such a
program. Congrats, on mastering the scheduling like BSU, and then winning.
Zoob fans...here's the difference-we've beaten TCU 3 out of the last 4. We have
done what you or others in the MWC can't do...match their speed, quickness,
toughness and athleticism. They are ridiculously talented but don't look now, so
are we. Crazy game, crazy atmosphere, and crazy implications but that's what
top programs do. Next year respect will be given through our conference
affiliations And of course an even better team, recruiting has already surpassed
previous levels and it's something were frankly getting used to. Depth,
talent, quickness, toughness and experience is something we'll show you this
year, next and for years to come. Just think, the great white hope-heaps will
be 0-3 against Wynn before his senior year. You have a lot to look forward
to...so do we!!
It's all on the line now. For the BCS busters and their fans one loss kills the
season. Better show up and hang onto the ball. Otherwise, Las Vegas beckons.
Gonna be a good game, don't really cheer for either team, but looking forward to
some quality college football.
@Shawnm750You are absolutely correct. This will be a 'Clash of the
Titans' game. I'm looking forward to it as well.In all seriousness,
if the Utes come out of this one then I will be convinced of their ability.
Doesn't mean that I'm a fan but until the regular season is over... it ain't
over.Until they played the Falcons my opinion was that the Utes had
not been tested and all of the fan hype was not warranted. Too many unfortunate
errors for the Falcons on Saturday and for Ute fans to claim that everyone of
them was a forced error is just not exactly true but that's football. Several fans almost had a heart attack on Saturday and that just shows that
the scales can tip very easily against the Utes this Saturday and in any of the
next games where the competition is improved or has had time to improve in the
case of BYU.November will be the month to remember.TCU
by 14.I still don't see a NC even if the Utes run the board. Plenty
of stronger programs out there.
As much as a detest Utes Fans (very similar to the SDSU fans I have to put up),
this is an epic match-up! What a way to leave the MWC. Go, Frogs!
Good luck Utes. I'm cheering for you to finish what we started in 1984.
Man... I am anxious for this one to start... College Game Day and then the 2 of
the best teams in the country battling it out for what could be a NC game...
This game is going to be epic, I got my blackout jersey and I am ready to go...
This week can not go fast enough!!
This will be the game of year for sure! Game Day is in town and the Utes are
riding a 22 game home win streak. I predict that Utes will win in 2 overtimes
and be ranked 3rd jumping Boise State.Sammyg your going to have to
root for Utah in the post season because your team will be no where near it! ;)
Time to open up the play book. The game was close at Air Force because the
coaches called a way to conservative game plan. Its like the offense had one
play and one play only. I thought the name of the game was to keep your opponent
guessing. Air Force loaded up the box with 8 or 9 players and we still ran it on
almost every play. The arrogance and bone headedness of the coaching staff
almost cost us the game.
Two top 5 teams playing in the state of Utah.And neither of them is
mighty BYU.No wonder sammyg is in such a bad mood. Combine the
Utah/TCU matchup that the nation will be watching with a pathetic excuse of a
football team in Provo, and it's amazing BYU fans are still posting at all.
@SammygYou know this will be a test for TCU as well. They've had most of
the same opponents as Utah. I think it's going to be a very close
game, similar to the game 2 years ago when it came down to which team had more
mistakes. The Utes have to execute, and execute flawlessly! They can't play like
they did in the 4th quarter against Air Force or the frogs will eat us alive!
I have a feeling this will be THE best game to watch this season
(with the possible exception of another BCS bowl game.) I'm looking forward to
this one more than the BYU game.
I've said it since week one and I'll say it again.Utah WILL WIN the
2010 national championship.People from both sides laughed at me
early on, but my predictions are gaining support from both sides now.Boise State isn't a concern with what the final strength of schedules will
say. Mark it down. 2010 Utah Utes National Champions.
"Dreams are starting to come true"I think by late Saturday afternoon
it will be a huge colossal, cataclysmic beat down.Whether its a
nailbiter of just a few points or a blowout it won't make any difference. TCU is
coming to town to dish out a beating.Sammyg's Nightmare at RES, a
dream come true. Trick or Treat!Go TCU. Go BYU.I'll root
for the Utes post-season. Ha ha
Never thought that I would say it, but here goes...GO UTES ! Beat those toads!
This is what the future holds - national attention for the Utes.Go
After Utah blew out AF in the first half, they seemed to go to sleep dreaming
about beating Alabama 3 years ago and nearly lost the game. Live in the present
Utah, stay focused, or you will never know what could have been.
Even if Utah wins out and doesnt get to the national championship game, Utah may
get a chance to play the team favored to win the NC this year - Oregon -- just
This is a great week!All the U haters predicted a loss against AF,
now are certain of a U loss to TCU! No matter what you think, the game will be
played on the field! And it will be epic! We win Saturday, we will be in a BCS
game!See you at Game Day!Go Utes! Beat the toads!!
