Wow. Now why did we get rid of our last offensive coordinator? This may be the worst single offensive game BYU has ever played.

I guess Utah was just more righteous this year. Utah has won the last 4 out of 5 times. When does it stop being a "rivalry" anymore?

I for one will now officially announce that the "rivalry" is now offically over.

The word "coordinator" implies some sort of coordination. Is there any coordination going on here at all? I guess the boys are all wearing similar uniforms. Does that count as "coordination?"

sneekee23, I totally agree. Out coached, and out played. Hey, 62. Can't wait until you get to see yourself looking for someone to block while Heaps is getting sacked by a guy who went through your gap.

Look, I've seen teams come back from 3 TD's in the fourth -- Utah against BYU in 1978 -- but I'm not hopeful.

let me guess, we didn't execute. can't wait to hear what heaps and co have to say after this.

only september and we have so little to play for now. huge loss to our rival and no real big names on our schedule.

People are now leaving the stadium.


Why so hard on your coaching staff Cougars? Bronco is a good coach. Whit is just great.


KamUte: Agree completely. UTE D are studs, and Chow making an average offense look good. Inexperience shows with Y coaching.

Layton, UT

At the end of the 3rd, the BYU offense is choking and doesn't want the ball. The skill players (specifically Heaps) is showing no toughness nor confidence. Two fumbles and overthrowing wide open short-route throws into the flat.

The Utah/BYU game is probably the best test as to the quality of both teams coaches. BYU coaches are failing. Doman better start doing his job, because he will not last the year if this keeps up. They have got rid of two outstanding offensive coaches (Chow, and Anae) for doing a better job.

Pac 12 whoopin boys and girls!!!

Heaps is the most over rated player in Y history.

A test of Bronco as a head coach will be whether Doman is in press box next game.


Has a member of BYU's coaching staff coughed up the ball lately? Give credit where credit is due. Ute D is solid!

South Jordan, UT

To all 4 and 5 star athletes looking at BYU. Don't!

BYU just became Utah State!

Iowa City, IA

The game has come down to execution.

The coaches coach. The players execute.

And Utah has looked very good. Suddenly, competing for the PAC-12 south isn't such a stretch.

LaVerkin, Utah

Well, we now know two things. 1. Just how bad BYU is, and 2. Just how hopeless Heaps is. BYU better throw him in a heap. Does remind me however of my years as a marching band member for Utah back in the early 60's, and it appears that the old fighting slogan for BYU back then will be applicable to this year. That old refrain coming from Prove was and I guess will be again, "WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR!"


Bad is bad, that is all you can say. Utah is a much better team.

Minneapolis, MN

Pathetic. Absolutely and utterly pathetic.

The Ute Trolls are absolutely correct...BYU football is nothing but a jumped up mid-major wannabe with delusions of grandeur...and that's all it will ever be.

If the brethren decided at their meeting next week to drop the program, I wouldn't shed any tears.

I am done with BYU football, and I am gone.

Utah 40
BYU 10

"This game's in the refrigerator! The door's closed, the lights are out, the eggs are cooling, the butter's getting hard, and the Jell-O is jiggling...."

Rexburg, ID

Been a long time since we have seen such a total melt-down of coaches, players, fans and admiinistrators.....the shell-shocked looks and deer-in-the-headlights stares were amazing. No bragging rights this decade for those obnoxious &/or humble fans who live and die with a win or loss.....no way I can go to church this week......as I actually like both teams.

Spin this however you want to, but the hype from some players & coaches seems to be lost in reality. Maybe actions really do speak louder than words.
