Another thing to remember here is that BYU fans are behaving as if the Utah
we've seen the last two weeks is the REAL Utah... and the 8-0 Utes just got
lucky every time out.Utah is a lot better than the team we've seen
over the past two weeks. That is not even up for debate, everyone knows (or
should know) Utah is better than this. You can't win 8 straight games and reach
#5 in the BCS ranks if you're not.That said, BYU fans (and players)
should be careful not to count Utah out. If people are expecting the Utes to
keep losing the way they have, they are in for a big shocker. If you overlook
the Utes, they will roll over you on Nov. 27.Gotta keep things in
End of an Error...Almost sounds convincing... until you go back and
remember that BYU lost to Utah State. That game exposed BYU for being a truly
mediocre team. Finally the BYU players are coming around, and just in time for
some weak teams. If your point is to claim BYU has improved since
week 1, then you are right. If you're claiming that the past two weeks prove
(or even suggest) that BYU is better than Utah... well, you can't be more
wrong.BYU clobbered two bad teams from a mediocre conference (just
as Utah did)... and those wins were definitely expected. However, you and your
blueblooded fans now seem to be coming out of the dark saying, "Wow, look
at our blowout wins. Wow, Utah lost two in a row. I knew BYU wasn't that bad.
Hey Utah, look who we just killed. Now it's clear that we're better than
you."Deny it if you want to, but that's how you people come
across right now.I'd love to hear just one of you try and explain
exactly how that shows BYU is the better team.
As mentioned above....the game totally hinges on Wynn. He is afraid to get hit,
and when any type of pressure comes, he starts to look like to penguins on
'Happy Feet'. I say at the first sign of 'Happy feet', we give Cane a shot. he
at least isn't afraid to get hit.I will be at the game on Saturday and
they will be hearing from me if they aren't playing well.Go Utes!!!
Big D It's because most people on these articles are in fact byu fans.
After talking to many byu fans that I work with, suddenly they think they are
way better or better than Utah because of beating the same cupcakes Utah has.
Not to mention another one coming up this Saturday for the Y. I think the game
on Nov 27th should be a good one, but I HIGHLY doubt byu has much of a chance to
beat us. The Utes will be extremely fired up to beat byu, especially after what
TCU did to them. Not to mention the "hate" speech Max Hall gave last
year after the game. Don't think they've forgotten about that. Come on Utes,
let's get things going again, beat SDSU.
Did anyone see the polls on the side of the article? Are people really
predicting BYU to beat Utah? I am a die hard Y fan and have enjoyed the last few
wins but I am still not on the band wagon that they are better than Utah.
"I think that's what made us 8-0," Cox said. "We've got great
leaders..."Maybe. But I think that having one of the easiest
schedules in all of college football was more of a factor. BYU has looked like
world beaters the last few games because of the same easy schedule that Utah had
prior to the two losses. Now the Utes are facing teams that are very good (TCU)
and kinda, sorta ok (ND) and they are being exposed. San Diego is coming into
this weeks game with a lot of confidence. This is the best team they have had
for a long time. And if Utah wants to compete then they had better bring their
A-game. Otherwise, they will look like TCU jumped on them again.
Its interesting that BYU is practising 1's against 1's. It sounds like a no
brainer to me that you would play your best against your best so they can get
used to the speed and the better coverages on game day. Wynn does not throw with
any sip on the ball. He just floats it out there and hopes for the best. Whit
has to much invested in Wynn to change. He will not change unless Wynn gets
injured. That will probably happen when he is running for a 1 yard gain and
slides into the down and distance chains on the sideline.
This game will determine the fate of Aaron Roderick and Jordan Wynn. With the
step up to the PAC coming, everything will need to be upgraded. If Aaron and
Jordan can show that they are making the necessary improvements to become big
time conference of champions type performers, then by all means they should get
the first shot at it. If they prove that they are just mid-level, mid-major type
talents, then it is time to upgrade. This is not little league. Perform or move
Here´s a novel idea. Give the leaders an opportunity to lead. Give Asiata
the ball more (why is Wide getting half the playing time again?)The
mistake with Wynn was against Air Force. The coaching staff already showed their
insecurity with Wynn as a leader when they didn´t let him air it out a
little more. That was the pivot point. Once that card was played, the Utes
needed to continue with the run game first, and pass only once the run game was
established.Oh well, Monday morning quarterbacking is so much easier
than making the calls on the field. Lets learn from the mistakes and prepare for
the next 3 games. I´m happy with an 11-2 season, which is what I predicted
on day 1.
UofU91,I totally agree.The QB position MUST be the alpha
leader. Im really, really hoping that Wynn has the mental fortitude to hold this
position. Wynns play and body language over the past two games looks more like a
follower than a leader.
Until they make a Q change, it will be like an engin with dirty spark plugs..
All the determination in the world wont change the fact that when you put
lipstick on a pig, a pig is still a pig...
snore. Go Aztecs!!!!
Is Wynn considered a Ute leader? Because, unless Wynn steps it up,
it doesn't matter what the rest of the team does.
