It just doesn't get much better than this! Congratulations Utes!
Boy this was almost as exciting as the SUU vs UTSA game in Cedar City way to go
After this blow out by Utah I'm sure everyone will be blaming Bronco but
honestly who are you going to get to coach at the Y? Bronco rightly only signed
a 3 year deal because he knows full well BYU's days are numbered in the NCAA and
there is no sugar coating what has happened to this program. BYU's program isn't
even a shadow of what it once was during the 70' - 90's and after this years
losing season the recruiting will be even worse. Fans support is next to fall.
Expect to see about 28000 in the stands in late November this year. Utah has a
legit Pac 12 program and BYU is .... well ... 47-10 pretty much tells the story.
Expect Utah State and TCU to do the same as Utah did. Wow, have fun with the
paper bags over your heads Cougar fans.
Can somebody please explain to my why Norm Chow is calling plays for UofU and
BYU is in a Heap of trouble!

can't really gauge BYU strength by former competition latest scores ...I didn't see the Ole Miss score. Agree, one can't just compare one of the
teams. Tired of the whiners that complain that BYU lost to Texas. Some were
disrespecting Texas, when in the reality even the worse Texas teams are
extremely competitive with any team in the nation. Not concerned
about the Vanderbilt / Ole Miss score. BYU always has had terrible problems
matching up with any of the SEC teams. Vanderbilt is a part of the conference
with the best athletes and football in the nation.So, BYU is better
than a mid-level PAC team, but not as good as a mid-level SEC team. I look
forward to tonight's game. The Utes and Cougs should match up well and give us a
Chris B. challenge--If BYU wins by twenty one or more, you quit posting for
@BYUfaninWashSt:Remember, Ole Miss is missing a few running backs
and don't have much of a running game.

A business person who allows his or her emotions to make decisions will
generally choose wrong. Football fans who rely on emotions to make predictions
at least don't lose money (unless they are betting), but they can make fools of
themselves.If we look at this game rationally, there is nothing to
indicate that it will be a high scoring affair. If we could transplant Wynn's
football mind into Heaps' body, we would have a world beater, but as it is we
have one quarterback with a bad arm and another quarterback lacking the
mentality. However, both teams have done well on defense. As I see
it, BYU's best chance is a low-scoring game. If both teams score in the teens or
lower, I have to like the Cougar's chances. If Utah scores more than three
touchdowns BYU will be hard-pressed to match that. That would also be because of
a Cougar defensive breakdown. I see the outcome of this game riding
on the BYU defense. However: don't write that down - we play the
game to learn the truth.

1st 2nd 3rd 4th finalUTAH 3 7 10 3 23
BYU 7 0 0 3 10Utah will show the
difference in athleticism when our d line wears BYU's O line out by mid 3rd
quarter. It will be a hard fought game but there is no way those BYU offensive
or defensive lineman will last a full game, just like last week against Texas
they were completely worn out halfway through the the 3rd quarter.
Talk smack all you want. Utah receivers have been more consistent as has Wynn
(despite the fact the cougar o-line is supposed to be better), Utah has the best
RB on the field in White. Utah has better DBs and the front seven is a push.
That leaves coaching. Whit and Bronco's records are almost identical and 3-3
against each other. I still give a slight edge to Whit for the BCS busting
season. That still isn't happening in Provo after last week. So, I see it coming
down to play calling and who would you rather have? Doman or Chow? Utah 24 BYU
State Championship...hehe.How about a finally in December... Alta Vs
byU for the state HS title.Meanwhile.. the Utes are playing Oregon
for the PAC 12 Championship.Love it.
byronbcaHoney, I told you that stuff will mess with your head.
@snack paci think youre the one who need to wake up bro. haha all you byu
fans need to "wake up." tell me one game where byu has scored more
than 2 touchdowns. and now youre all sayin its gonna be 34-14 or 27-14 or
whatever lol. get real.
Note what Chris B said, "I won't post on BYU articles for a month. I will
post ALL month."
Ahhhh, I'm loving all this smack talk from both sides. Won't be long before we
know who's right. Go Utes!
If the cougar defence can put pressure on Wynn (which they will) most of his
completions will be in the second row of the stands while he is running for his
life. May the best team win. That will give us the victory for sure. I4C the
score as:BYU 27Utah 20Go Cougars!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everybody is failing to mention the most obvious thing of all---kicking.Coach Whit was worried about kicking during camp and his worries were well
founded. I don't think the Utes have a dependable place kicker at this point and
if you need proof, look at last weeks game against SC. New kicker and I
understand he's been placed in a tough situation, but this game could be ultra
close and the Utes might really need a clutch performance by their kicker. I
hope I'm wrong--but I have a feeling that this game might come down to whoever
has the more consistent kicking and punting. Go Utes!!!
I hope the Utes can stay motivated for this game. It hasn't felt like rivalry
week this week. This game means everything for BYU and they will come out
playing hard. I hope the Utes don't overlook them just because they aren't a Pac
team. I know they can do it though, GO UTES!!
I watched both games last week and here is what I observed. Heaps was
inconsistent, but that could be attributed to the new offense of Brandon Doman.
Jordan Wynn completed short passes but for the most part it was a running game
against USC. BYU has a very good defense this year. Van Noy and Pendelton are
excelelnt LB's who can put pressure on Wynn and force incompletions. Also this
game is at LES and its BYU's first home game so that is a huge advantage. My
prediction is that the Cougar Offense will want to impress the hometown crowd so
they will put up points. The Defense will prevent Utah from getting much
momentum. Cougars by 10.

to find out out that Wynn's "bum shoulder" is the most exaggerated
news item of the last decade. I hate to be the one to break this to you, but
unlike last year BYU will be facing a fully operational Jordan Wynn."Keep thinking Butch, that's what you're good at.
Uncle RicoRemind us which QB has only thrown one TD against a D1-A
opponent this year.
Could be any score in todays game. We can't know for sure. Only thing we do
know is that it will be hard fought!
Re Snack PAC:I'll take ducks over interceptions every day of the

BYU 42 Utah 14. BYU finally gets offense going. If not Utah 24 BYU 10
Re: Uncle RicoRemind me again who got served a dose of their own
medicine last week with a blocked field goal and hey, it even got ran in for a
@bluecoug89 - amen bro.
Re: bluecoug89Remind me again which team only has 2 offensive
touchdowns this year so far.
To Chris B, I don't think anyone actually really cares if you post or not. You
make it sound like what you have to say is actually important or something. Look
at what I found. It's a little known story about what happened to the Utes
yesterday during their practice but I believe it's very relevant to the game
today. Check it out:BREAKING NEWS: UTES football practice was
delayed nearly 2 hours yesterday after a player reported finding an unknown
white powdery substance on the practice field. Kyle immediately suspended
practice while police were called to investigate. After a complete analysis
experts determined that the white substance unknown to players was the GOAL
LINE. Practice resumed after a special agent decided the team was unlikely to
encounter the substance again.
Both offenses are not executing well. Both defenses look solid. This will not
be a high scoring game. But the Ute defense is not as good as the Texas D was.
Texas is a legit team and will likely go 9-3. BYU will win 24 to 10.Utah has not played anyone of significance yet. USC is not a Top 25 team.
The strength of USC is still suspect after barely beating Minnesota who got
whipped by New Mexice State. If NM State can beat Minnesota by more than USC
did, and USC beat Utah - that would mean that NM State is better than U.
My little brother was up a little too late last night and had some keyboard
issues. What he really meant to type wasBYU 31Utah 17
byronbcaWynn is throwing wounded ducks, sidearm, with that
surgically repaired throwing shoulder -- you need to wake up and smell the
coffee bro'.BYU 31Utah 13
Some predictions that will definitely come true: 1) Utah fans will be grateful
for BYU because BYU landed the ESPN contract; 2) Utah fans will be grateful for
BYU because BYU landed the possibility for Ute fans to watch the replay on
BYUtv; 3) BYU fans will be excited to see the Cougars on an ESPN network likely
eight more times this season; and 4) Utah fans will be bummed they will not see
the Utes on ESPN again until they participate in the Las Vegas Bowl.
I'm afraid that Wynn and his bum shoulder will be Utah's undoing. BYU's offense
is due for a breakout game and I don't see the Utes being to hang with them.Utah 17BYU 24
I just don't see a close game this year. The reason the game was close last year
was because Wynn was playing with a throwing shoulder that needed surgery,
that's not the case this year. I just don't see how byu's dbs are going to be
able to cover Utah's receivers.I think Heaps is overrated, byu
doesn't have any good RB's and their defense has yet to face a QB who can throw.
On the other hand Wynn was decent against the best defense he'll face all year,
he has yet to commit a turnover, and Utah's defense is way better than anything
byu has seen. Heaps will throw at least one int and probably 2.Utah
28 byu 13
Should be a good battle, but in the end BYU has more guns 24-13.
BYU 28u 24Chris B. promised the same thing last year after
Utah lost to Boise and did not keep his promise. At least his predictions are
usually wrong. 31 against BYU's defense? Not today!
The only bad thing about this game being played this early is that both teams
won't suffer a loss! Two losses this early in the season spells complete
mediocrisy for one of the magnificents. Keep hoping Y-niner & Ewetie fans
& SLC media for the same dreams that are in rainbows, but reality says your
disappointments are only beginning.
Hoping BYU wins so when Utah State wins again this year there will be no
arguments as to who the best team in Utah this year.
BYU 34Utah 14
I look for a great offensive effort by both teams. BYU42-Utah32.
I look for the offense to finally come together and the defense to continue to
play aggressive. Utah will play well, but will come up short. BYU 42 Utah 28.
Chris B:We're gonna miss you more than any words can express.
tough to call.Offense - both have struggled so far. Its amazing that
Wynn has performed better than Heaps so far. The outcome will likely depend on
which QB plays better.Defense - a strong suit for both teams right
now. Hopefully the D plays well and we still get some points on the board.I think Utah has shown its the better team at the moment, but we have
only played two games. It should be another thriller.
Just another non aq practice. If Byu wins I wont post on Byu articles for a
month. I will post all month. Utah 31 Byu 17.
