Chris B.Are you counting out ASU? I wouldn't. At best the 3rd best team in
a division and hoping USC wins out because they can't play in championship. Back
door hopes, take the win anyway you can. Look at your reasoning, you are
pointing out all of the u can win without having to play anyone.
Let's consider chances of going to a BCS bowl:byu1 loss

Hey u how's that fishing channel working for you? I guess better than no
regional coverage like you had last week. Oh well, all your fans get the slc
I didn't see the game, but listened on the radio, My question is this, why
didn't we try one more play into the endzone before trying the field goal????
Fun game being in the stands and great effort by the Utes. Utah was in the game
right up to the blocked field goal. In the future we will close these games
One fanbase doesn't accept Poppinga victories. The other adores them.
The Utes proved they can play with anyone. The two toughest places to play in
the Pac-12 are probably at USC and at Oregon. They came into the coliseum and
had a chance to tie in the final minute -- proof that they can acclimate to this
conference. (btw, how is that not 'close')Next year the Trojans come
to Utah -- when was the last time?
I just hope Utah played well enough to sway a 4 star recruit or 2 that was at
the game sitting in Utah seats to come to Utah instead of USC. I don't know if
that would count as a moral victory but it would make a nice consolation
prize.The difference in this game was USC's 5 star star recruits on
offense (Barkley, Tyler and Woods).
It wasn't ever "close" and it was obviously not good enough. It will
take a few years to compete at that upper levels of this conference.
