i dont understand why its wrong to think your team is the best in the nation.
What kind of fan are you if you want your team to go 8-4 obviously every fan
wants their team to go undefeated and win the national championship so why not
cheer for them to do so
We now know that Wynn was ailing the latter part of the season, but still the
Ute defense fell apart. No excuses for the defense.I want to see
Utah win, but Terrence Cain will have to put aside any inner angst or feelings
he has about being passed over and just pass over the BSU defenders.When he came into the BYU game he was rusty but this time he will have had
reps with the first team and he knows he has a lot of respect from the team and
community behind him. I also think that this year Nevada was and is
the equal of BSU. Uta will give a comparison for how good these two WAC teams
Eager just like moths to the flame.
yewtology,You seem like a decent person in your last post.
"Everyone makes mistakes." Is that what you will say next time a byu
player, fan, or coach makes a mistake? There is another poster
named uteology who does nothing but talk trash, but clearly there must be 2
uteologys.Also, I believe heaps said "the plan is to win the
next 10 games." Although not the best thing to say after a terrible start,
not quite the same as declaring your team deserves to be in the national
championship(for being a top 2 team) only 2/3 through the season and having a
strenght of schedule somewhere around the national deficit amount. Isn't it
"the plan" of any good program such as USC, Flordia, Ohio State,
yewtah(yes I think yewtah has a great program), byu) to win all their games?
Saying its the plan is not quite saying "We will win every game."Again, I'm curious to see your next comment when a byu person
"makes a mistake."The self righteousness coming from the
hill these days passes anything ever seen in Provo.
@Uteology...Is there any team in your life other than BYU?Seriously, call yourself anti-Cougology.You are not even a Utah
fan.The Majority of your posts are about BYU.
I'm a Ute fan but I have to admit that Boise is one heck of a good team. They
are just like Utah but have taken winning to a new level. We both have beaten
BCS teams when it mattered in the fight to destroy the good ole boy network of
the BCS. The BCS is like communism.... The guys at the top get all the money
and power. What happened to the survival of the fittest and we'll settle this
fight on the field of battle. Boise is Utah and Utah is Boise. We should be
brothers in the fight. I admire them and it is obvious this year that they are
better than the Utes. They should beat the Utes but that is why they play the
game. Peterson their coach has to be one the brightest minds in the coaching
ranks. He has guts and puts it on the line.Should Boise be playing someone
ranked around the top 10 instead of the top 20...you bet they should but the BCS
like a corrupt union has the power and they protect their own because they don't
want to be embarrassed by Boise
Chris B is hilarious! Trying to remember Chris B's predictions from games with
TCU and ND. Also trying to remember CB's pick in last years TCU/BSU bowl
game?Utah is not in BSU's league this year or last year. On the
bright side 10 and 3 isn't too bad.
@Ted H.Every one makes a mistake, even Heaps when he said they'll go
10-0 after becoming a starter. FYI... only one fan base wears
"Perfection" t-shirts in the preseason and celebrates at airports for
a 1-0 team.Boise is a good team, while Utah has played mediocre the
last five games. Utah still needs to prove that they are a top 15 team, Vegas
is their last chance.Go UTES!!!
This coug fan wishes U good luck in the bowl.I could see BSU falling
flat on their face as they try to softly land from their NC aspirations two
weeks ago.I could also see BSU getting up to try and show the U that
BSU deserved a look from the PAC-10.
Dear GO UTES:Sorry you feel that way. Would like to meet you in
Vegas.Personally, I don't know many Broncos fans who harbored
realistic NC aspirations. It was a dream to be included in the conversations,
though. I think they were deserving of that. A BSC bowl game expectation was
reasonable too, until the Nevada loss.To some, BSU fans may appear
to be arrogant. I prefer to think of it as confidence and great pride in what
our program has accomplished in a relatively short time and with very little
resources. We have great respect for the Utes and what their football program
has achieved. It's too bad the teams won't play in the same conference. Sad
also that the Utes cancelled next year's return game in Boise, although I
understand why it was done. This could have developed into a great regional
rivalry.Best wishes next year in the PAC 12. BSU would love to send
the Utes out of the MWC with an appropriate departure gift.Go
It seems as though the "hater" inside the Y fan has beat out the
"supporter" in the Y fan. It would be a great thing for the Y fans to
show their encouragement and support to their rival in such an EPIC game for the
Utes. Just think, you could take credit for your part if the Utes win, and you
could say that you wished them the best of luck if they lose.Or just
continue "hating" on the Utes. I think that in either case, your
opponent in September will be more worthy in your eyes coming off a Boise State
win, or you may feel more dominant going into that same September game with your
more experienced team preparing to beat up on your favortie PAC 12 foe to the
north. UTAH 24 (3 tds and 1 fg)Boise State 20 (2 tds and 2
Once again the byu bitterness is oozing out all over this board! Go worry about
UTEP. GeeshReality is, Boise is a great team. Are they beatable?
YUP! I expect K whitt to prepare accordingly. Heck, they will even have a
healthy QB.Utes 34Boise 31Boise, make sure you
bring that kicker because that will be the difference in this one.
Got my tickets, should be a fun game!
Laser made a comment "Especially when a huge majority of u fans take it
even further and mock and belittle the LDS faith. I think he is mistaken since
most Utah fans are probably of the LDS faith. Don't confuse the lack of respect
for BYU's football team with a lack of respect for the LDS Church. I doubt any
supreme being cares about the outcome of most football games. The fact that
some (not all or any many) BYU fans try to demonize Utah fans adds to the flame.
Anyway, I will be wearing my Devil colors (red) on the 22nd. Win or lose I
will have a good time. I am betting on a win though.
cougar4ever2 | 11:34 a.m" I would say they got just exactly what they
deserved. Nuff said."What do they deserve.Hopefully
both teams leave their best on the field.===OK, that is just
classless hate.Critique the QB's. That is fair. But
predicting picks?Come on...
Hey look at it this way. The two best quarterbacks in Utah history will both be
on the Sidelines coaching the Utes with a clipboard in their hands. That
coaching must be worth 21 points in the 1st Quarter alone. Where are the last
two BYU Quarterbacks? Might I say they are at least on NFL Rosters! But Being on
Utahs sideline is just as good as the NFL. Boise 42Utah 10
I hate Bronco fans more than any Cougar fan (true story). BSU fans possess the
rare combination of being arrogant, unrealistic (You play in the WAC, you're not
going to play for the NC, just like any MWC team) and outright cocky.I haven't met a BSU fan that I can stand.
A little reality folks. Utah has NO chance of beating Boise St. Last year, TCU
had a chance and in the end lost. This years Utes are not even in the same
class as Boise State. They only beat a 6-6 BYU team because Bronco was not
smart enough to kick a field goal earlier in the game or go for the logical 2
point conversion. If Utah can stay within 21 points of Boise St., they will be
Why cheer for the utes when they love to antagonize the Cougars? Especially when
a huge majority of u fans take it even further and mock and belittle the LDS
faith (the evidence was humungous at the game this year, especially with
tailgaters). This cougar wants nothing to do utah until the better U
fans do something to clean up the loud majority of despicable U fans.
Yes Flame,And I'll be there cheering my UTES handle boise with
relative ease. Final Score will be Utah 34Boise 24But it really won't be that close. Remember the quick start
against Alabama - deja vu.Utah up 21-0 after Q1,Mark

Utes...you're gonna need it (again)!
Best team from Utah playing the best team from Idaho with the game being played
in Nevada. It certainly captures the region's interest and the nation will pay
attention too as both teams were ranked in the top 5 during the season. One of
the best bowl game matchups this year.
yewty4life and juggernut,Yewties don't make excuses? It's just my
imagination that for the past year we've been hearing how lucky byu was to win a
close game in Provo against a freshman QB? Every post on these boards was about
how lucky byu got to squeak out a win against a true freshman for months on end.
Yes, our crystal ball is off sometimes yewty4life, just as yours
is(see NC Utes 2010 - where is he by the way? I'm starting to get worried). He
ran his mouth for several months and then disappeared. I also
wonder what crystal ball captain zaney boy was looking at when he said the
yewties were one of the two best teams in the nation?It's
embarassing when a fan says their team is top of the nation and they arentEven more embarasssing when a player says it.Even more
embarassing when a captain says it. Yewties have had overall an
impressive year(clearly better than byu, yes, I have admitted it all year)Let's not be childish though and for the nonsense by the yewties though
too(including team captains)
Hey cougar4ever, would 10 and 2 be getting what we deserved or 6 and 6 and
getting beat by their rival with the qb situation being a "joke" be
getting what we deserved. Utah never makes excuses dude. I can't wait to see
the awesome new mexico bowl, that one is high on my list.
Utah has done well in bowl games and I hope they surprise me, but I just don't
see them beating Boise.
'cougar4ever'... you seem to have confused your fan base with ours. When Utah
loses (rarely) they can own up to it. For example... TCU is a better team this
year no question. ND outplayed the Utes in Southbend this year. Also... what
does 'get what they deserved' mean? And one last thing... you must be really
rich ... I mean having that crystal ball to predict an 'epic beatdown' and 4
picks by our QB. Is that the same crystal ball you used to predict the 'Quest
for Perfection' and other huge ybu disappointment?
Once again I will echo my previous post: I am glad that this game will be
decided on the field of play by athletes, and not by online message board
Try a little trickery of our own. Remember the pass that Shaky Smithson threw a
mile for a touchdown. Stops,turnovers, and trickeration will win the game
for team that will use all three.
Im not speaking on behalfof, or to any collective fan base.... except he haters,
which I don't believe to wholly encompass any one fan base. I realize that not
all of one teams fans are included in said group, nor are all fans in that group
required to be fans who only fit a certain mold outside of it. I am pointing out
that it is my assumption that the same people posting that BSU will beat the U
by forty are probably the same that said Utah would lose to Cal, Bama, Pitt
(twice), BYU, ISU, OSU..... The list goes on... For the record... I picked BYU
to win their bowl game... because I feel no attachment to the hater
brotherhood.As far as Zane's statement..... I can't speak for him
anymore than he can speak for me... or than Max Hall can speak for he Y fan
base. College kids say things they shouldn't that's why so many coaches ban
twitter and facebook.
Epic beatdown indeed. I really can not wait to see this happen, and then to
hear all of the excuses for why it happened, because if there is one thing Utah
is good at, it is making excuses. Jordan Wynn is both physically and mentally
weak, and Terrance Cain will be picked off at least 4 times in this game. The
QB situation at the U is a joke, and they all know it..the coaches, players, and
fans. I would say they got just exactly what they deserved. Nuff said.
Let's see, who is the only team to beat TCU in the last two years? Oh yeah,
Boise State!And, what has TCU done to the Utes that last two years?
Oh yeah, major beat downs...this won't be pretty, but it will be enjoyable!Utah's bowl history is mostly made up of wins over mediocre teams in
mediocre bowls...except for 2004 when they beat a mediocre team in an
exceptional bowl game! But you will always have the Sugar Bowl won't you?
Kyle's a class act and I respect the way he approaches every game and expresses
his respect for programs, coaches and players.But this has beat down
written all over it.Again, I wish they'd stop matching up teams from the
same conferences or the same parts of the country like they did with BSU and TCU
last year.This is a similar effort to avoid puting BSU against an Iowa or
Florida State or Ohio State.All of which BSU would have won, IMO.I
hope Utah is better next year when they come to the PAC or I'll catch alot of
flac for bragging them up.But if anyone can re-load and re-build it's
skierelemo,Before you get too high on yourself bud, remember a few
weeks ago when you were going to the national championship and your team was one
of the "2 best in the nation"(see yewt captain zaney taylor). He'll
defend that quote anytime he said.Utah has had an impressive year
overall with many beatdowns given(and a few taken), but the hypocrisy is
hilarious as you quote a collective fan base and forget the foolish comment by
your own captain.
A few points....First. Anyone who honestly believes Bama threw in
the towel before the game started obviously doesn't know any athletes... or
sports in general for that matter.Second. I blame the O.C.'s for
Cains sub par performance in the BYU game... in a game of that magnitude you
don't send a cold Qb out slinging... and you don't abandon your bread and butter
(run game), especially when you just sent in an athlete who can run!!!And finally...... Hey haters!!! Remember at the beginning of this year we were
going to have at least four losses.... Remember when our bowl game streak was
ending last year??? Or the year before that?? Keep hating, it works for the
I am so glad we are 10-2 playing Boise St and not 6-6 playing UTEP. We have a
chance to beat a great team... if we don't there is no shame in that. Utah going
to the PAC-12 is exciting. Playing good teams every week will be fun. Having a
chance for the Rose Bowl and a BCS championship is exciting. I tire of the
jealosy and hypocracy exibited by our rival fans. I am proud to be a UTE and
have no need to troll their articles and give negative comments. Enjoy your
independance... With your schedule you will always have a good record be proud.
Go UTES!!! I'm proud of what you've accomplished!!!!
If the Utes play really well this can be a tight game. If Nevada can beat them,
the Utes can beat them. If the Broncos play a really great game it will be over
by half time. I'm hoping for a 4th quarter nail biter like against my Cougars.
Let's all get behind the Cougs and then the Utes. We can squabble next year just
like old times.
Hard game without Wynn. Good luck BSU, you've had a great season. GO UTES!
@Really???"Alabama was disappointed to not be playing in the
championship game in 2008, and they played that way. They felt it was an insult
to play against one of the BCS busters. They did not prepare for the game. I am
not saying that to take away from Utah's win, but it is the truth."Wrong. Alabama used that as an excuse after they lost.
Please go to "hulu" and watch the first part of the Utah/Alabama game.
The announcers were clear in that Alabama was not taking Utah lightly and their
coaches said their practices leading up to the Sugar Bowl were spirited and
lively. Utah exploited Alabama's weakness, which was inability to defend against
the no-huddle offense. Utah was up 21-0 by the time Alabama figured out how to
adjust to it, and by then it was too late.With this, I do think
Boise St. will be a tough game for Utah, especially since Utah has not been able
to stop a good passing game all season long. But we'll see.
Chris B1. Utah proved to be the same.2. With the exception
of the last 10 years, Utah pretty much hasn't been to a bowl game since WWII.3. How did that TCU game for for you?4. Lets see, a bunch of freshman
and sophomores outplayed your athletic juniors and seniors, losing only by a
blocked field goal. If that's what you call athletes, I'll take the
students.5. I'm pretty sure Patterson, Peterson, Meyer, and Kelly just to
name a few have Coach Whit beat.6. Yes, Utah does have the MUSS.7.
Cain's going to need to, because he loves throwing those interceptions.Utah 13Boise 52Reality Check. Mark it down!
I would give utah a chance to win this game, but a very small one. Cain isn't
good enough to beat Boise St. He will be pressured into making mistakes by a
very tough Bronco defense. He was terrible against BYU. While BYU's defense is
much improved from the beginning of the year, they aren't as good as Boise St.
BSU 45utah 21
JNA,I'm happy to oblige. Let's go over the facts:1. Boise State was clearly overrated2. Utah hasn't lost a bowl
game since WWII(pretty close)3. Utah(unlike tds) actually knows how to
get up for the biggest games(see 2 BCS wins)4. Utah(unlike tds) has
athletes, not students who pretend to be athletes5. Whittingham is the
best coach in the nation6. the MUSS7. Cain can scrambleYou ready for this JNA....Utah 34Boise 24Yes -
MARK THAT DOWN
Us byu cougers will easily win 12 games next year. We just added the awesome
Idaho State for next year and they will be really good so when we beat them that
will mean we are better than really good.
My heart is with Utah My sympathies with the Uties wearing rose
colored glasses....But my money is on BSU.....This will
be a kin to McMahon beat down of UtahI predict 66-0!
This should be real fun to watch. Write it down.
History shows the Utes to do very well in the bowl game and BSU to struggle in
non-BCS games. I thoroughly expect the Utes to be ready and this to be a very
good game. Utah by 5
Frankenberry,Utah was on a roll in 2008, and you cannot say that
about this current team. Also, Boise State has something to prove to the Big Dog
leaving the conference they will be joining next year--they will play Utah
tough. Alabama was disappointed to not be playing in the championship game in
2008, and they played that way. They felt it was an insult to play against one
of the BCS busters. They did not prepare for the game. I am not saying that to
take away from Utah's win, but it is the truth. All that said, I
will be cheering for the Utes. I think the Boise State fans need to learn what
it is like to play in a tougher conference. They may be the second best team in
the MWC after Nevada once the two teams join.
Yes, we remember Alamaba. However, we also remember your last two games against
TCU.The Smurfs will put a world of hurt on the Utes. The Broncos
are the ones that will be playing mad with a chip on their shoulder.Maybe the Utes should do their black out thing. As in going to their own
Remember this is the same Boise State team that defeated TCU last year in the
Fiesta Bowl. The same TCU team that embarrassed the Utes this season and last.
The Utes must fix the following problems. 1. More speed in the running
game. Use Asiata less and Wide, Dunn and Brooks more. Spread the Broncos out and
use our speed guys for the corners and open areas. Asiata is to slow and
predictable. He should get half the carries he normally gets.2.Cain should
get his running shoes ready. Bring in more option plays and reverses to keep
Boise honest.3.Trade our offensive coordinators for Boise's. They actually
are creative and unpredictable with a game plan that looks like they put more
than 10 minutes into it.4.If we cannot slow down Boise's passing game we
do not have one chance in 100 of staying in this game. We must pressure Moore
and the corners have to play better and break on the ball quicker and not wait
for the pass to be completed before they decide to tackle the receiver. I would
rather get beat by Boise with the run than the pass. Mix up the coverages and
play 8 guys in the secondary more often. If they play zone they must play a
match up zone and stay with the receiver.
You guys are read the future so well, you should play the PowerBall.Utah will have their hands full for sure. But remember the Sugar Bowl. They
were playing another angry, disappointed team then too. You just never really
know. That's why they line up an play 'em.Go Utes, Cougs, Frogs,
Aztecs, Falcons. Let's win the conference Bowl thing again.
This is a huge chance for the Utes to "justify" their season and
ranking. They beat up on the six easy teams, went 4-1 against the middle road
teams barely beating Pitt and BYU, both of which should have been a far easier
home wins, and then got blown out by TCU again at home. Now they have Boise
State. Assuming BSU shows up better than Bama did, Utah can show they really
are a top 25 team. This is their chance to shine. It would be real nice to
leave the MWC by beating the new top dog. This is likely a "stay in the
top 25" game. A win keeps them there. A loss, especially if it is like
TCU, knocks them out. This is their chance!!
Here's one Cougar fan who's rooting hard for the Utes against the Broncs! I hope
they put up a good show and win it for their coach and their fans. I believe in
miracles and I think the Utes are very capable of pulling off an upset! Go
Utes!!! My cougars will look good if you put up a good show, even better if you
win. Again, go Utes! Go Cougs! Win your final games and leave the MWC on a
high note! And may the future be bright for both programs!
Ok Chris B. I am waiting for you to tell what to "mark down"
Utes by 14....can't wait to make for all the na-says to see the truth.
Anytime Coug fans predict that the Utes will lose big, the Utes usually do
fairly well. I do think the Utes will lose this game, but I think they will
surprise us. Cain presents a different threat than does Wynn...now if he could
just throw the ball.
Hey Homer Simpson. You'll be just fine with Utep. It's obvious that you're a Y
fan and harbor just a bit of resentment. It's ok.
This is gunna be an EPIC beatdown....
Broncos by 50+. Sorry, Utes. You are not worthy.
