Cain could make the difference...


Utah losing by 30


Utah losing by 40+

Cedar Hills, UT

Leave it to the bitter fans to the south to put a fine young man down. Pathetic

Thanks Terrance for doing all the right things on and off the field. Look forward to one last game to shut the naysayers up and go out at 10-1 as a starter.

Go Utes!

So, what I gather from is article is that TCain is quiet.

I think if Cain (and the rest of the team) can find his rhythm, then this will be an interesting game. The 2 weeks that he started, his completion pass completion percentage was almost identical to Kellan Moore's. I felt bad that he did so poorly in the BYU game, but I think to be thrown in with all that pressure probably forced some bad decisions. I think they should have been rotating him into more plays throughout the season this year. I think he earned at least that, but at least now we'll see well he proves himself.

Thanks for playing broncos


Let's see, if Cain throws 3 interceptions against BYU in half a quarter, and BYU's secondary is supposedly horrible, according to the mighty Utes, I am wondering if there has been a record set in a bowl game for the number of interceptions thrown. I think Cain has a great chance at setting that record. Congratulations in advance! I won't bother wishing the Utes luck in this game because there isn't enough luck on this planet to help them. They have used up all their luck in the previous three games they have played this year. Too bad they didn't save some.

Cain has nothing to prove. He is a very capable QB, 9-1 speaks for it's self. 7 of these win came in Utah's rebuilding year.
GO UTES!!! Make our state proud.
Side note: I Love BYU fans. Cougar4ever2 reads and posts on every UTE story. I wish he could get something right, Cain didn't throw 3 int's against BYU.

Chris B., I can't wait to hear your excuse for why your prediction went so awry. Of course after this game, you will have no reason to post about a football article until BYU opens at Ole'Miss then we will see another predictable "Kewgs lose by 50. Mark it down." Your lousy prediction are becoming so old.

Look forward to seeing what you have to say on Wed. evening.

Cain must be ready to run the ball. One of the Utes biggest weaknesses this season has been that the offence is designed around having a running threat at QB, and the Utes have turned into a pocket passing spread instead of rolling out of the pocket. I haven't looked, but I bet Wynn had less than 100 yds rushing on the season. Having a running threat will make the D pause for periods that can open up lanes or give the QB a window to hit the receiver.
This could be a positive for the offence. A bit of an unknown. Like Ratliff at the end of 2005.
I will hope for the best for the Utes, but honestly just crossing my fingers that they keep it competitive.

GO UTES!!! From a diehard Cougar fan here's hoping your QB has a career day and you guys sign off from the MWC with a great victory. Looking forward to September and some great college football.

Cain can definately beat Boise State. Here comes a win off of a field goal miss. A last second field goal miss.

Nobody is questioning Cain's character, utahcountyute, just his QB skills.

There's a good reason Cain was benched in favor of Wynn last year and why he's only played a backup role this year.

The Broncos know Cain can run, but they also know he's only a marginal passer. They have plenty of game film on Cain and have plenty of time to adjust their game plan to take away his strengths.

Blind belief in Cain's abilities and Utah's "improvement" since TCU won't help the Utes.

Boise State is just plain better and, unfortunately for the Utes, the Broncos will be out to prove they're still better than the Utes.

Cedar City, UT

This has nothing to do with the young man. Some of the comments are accurate. Either QB equals a loss. But come on, that article was horrible written. Loser in the end...the D news.

Boise, ID

I'd rather play against Wynn than Cain. Wynn can run and they pass about as well as one another.

I suspect Cain will be very silent this game nothing good hopefully nothing too bad just quiet

Oakley, UT

Im glad Cain is quiet.... it almost makes up for the mind numbing chatter coming from all the haters on these Utah topics.

Frost Free, Utah

I am a Y fan embarrassed by the ridiculous comments made by thankfully only a few supposed Y fans, so far. Be better than that!
How can we not all get behind a quiet athlete just trying to do his job in this day and age? What a refreshing change. Regardless of the rankings, in actuality Boise State should run away with this game. I was going to just enjoy what I hope will be a good game, but now I will pull for this underdog of a QB to pull his best game ever out of a hat and end his career with one last great memory.

I feel badly for the Utes and for Cain. They've had a slightly overrated year and now Cain is thrown into the mix against a team that's got to be mad about their state. I wish they had a chance in this game but, realistically, there is little chance of anything good for them.

Cain is one of my favorite athletes. lets play our best game of the year. if we play like we did against Iowa State than we get the W if we play like we have in the past 4 games, not so much.

Have you all forgotten that Utah hasn't lost a bowl game since WWII or something like that?

This streak is not going to end.

If Alabama couldn't end it - how will an overrated Boise?

Broncos are going to get bucked
