    "I would rather have lost to teams of that caliber than have my win/loss record propped up by wins over lowe level opponents like UCF and Utah State."

    ...says the fan of a team that went 8-0 against cupcakes last year, got ranked #5 beating cupcakes and later fell off cliff against TCU, ND and BSU, a lowly WAC team (sarcasm).

    While not a Utah fan, I hope the young man has a chance to build up his body and frame during his rehab so he can complete his career without further serious injury.

    I don't think Wynn qualifies for a medical hardship or medical redshirt. In order to qualify a player cannot appear in more than 20% / 30% of the games (different responses from different websites), and a player cannot appear in any game after the mid point of the season. Wynn meets the second criteria, but he does not meet the first. I don't think the NCAA will grant a medical hardship to him.

    However, I do wish Wynn a speedy recovery and all the best.

    To all of those critiquing Hays, let's look at a few key points of the last two games:

    1. Hays has a much better and deeper arm than Wynn. Just look at those two deep bombs Hays threw against ASU in the second half.

    2. Hays is a better running quarterback. Some of those trick runs he did using John White as a decoy were awesome and showed that he can be fast and pick up the first down when necessary.

    3. He has a mental toughness that is just going to keep developping with time. As mentioned before, he threw two huge bombs in the second half. The first one was negated cause of a penalty. Two plays later on third down, he and White pull off a nice trick play which allows Hays to throw a deep accurate play. That takes mental toughness. He just needs to keep developping it to cut down on those stupid turnovers where he threw a bad pass instead of running it for the first down or taking the time to stabilize himself.

    Look forward to the rest of the season, hope we can pull off an 8-4 or 7-5 season

    Duckhunter Hunter, I disagree with your predictions. You are too hard on your own team. Here are my predictions (from a Cougar/USC fan)

    @ Pit. Utah wins. Utah has shown it can play on the road. See USC game and the thumping we got in Provo this year.

    @ Cal. Cal wins. Great receivers, similar to USC, and a solid defense making it tough to run and forcing Hays to win it. I like Hays, so this will be a telling game.

    Oregon St. Utah wins.

    @ Arizona. Utah wins, but watch out for a trap game. Arizona can score.

    UCLA. Utah wins. Remember last time UCLA played Utah. UCLA is not a good team and can't play on the road.

    @ Washington St. Utah wins. Better athletes on both sides of the ball.

    Colorado. Utah wins.

    So I have Utah winning 6 of the next 7. I don't think the season will collapse. It depends on Hays and not turning the ball over in the redzone. Utah will get better recruits, which will help in the future, but Utah will have tougher schedules in future years with USC eligible for bowl games and Oregon and Stanford on the slate.

    "BYU 4-2 has a better record than any of the teams left on Utah's schedule, and we all know what "solid competition" Utah fans think BYU is."

    Why is BYU being injected back into this conversation? Utah has already handled business there. And 2 of the 4 wins you are using to bolster your argument were USU and SJSU. Those teams are hardly the cream of the crop. Sure, you could use an argument about how some of the teams Utah has or will play have also played weak teams. And that would be true.

    The true measure of how teams stack up is head-to-head and Utah was on the winning end, yet again, and has been for 7 of the last 10 years. Don't bother bringing up the 70s and 80s because then I will be foreced to go back to the beginning.

    And, yes, overall, Utah's schedule is more difficult than BYU's.

    So. Cal Reader,

    You missed my point. While BYU fans are gloating about beating non-AQ teams the Utes have lost to some of the best teams in the Pac 12. I see good things ahead for the Utes. You say a winning record is almost out of reach, but none of the opponents still on our schedule are close to the ones we've played so I see it far differently than you do.

  • Mormon Ute Kaysville, UT
    Oct. 12, 2011 4:56 p.m.

    Riddles in the Dark,

    No, I didn't forget about Oregon and Stanford, but two of the teams we have played are currently tied with them for 1s place (ASU & Washington) in the conference and the other team's (USC) only loss is to one of those two (ASU). It's really not complicated.

    Really not that many Ute fans expected us to be as competitive in the Pac 12 as we were in the MWC. Some of us did hope for a possible run at the South Division title, but ASU turned out better than we thought.

    My point is that things are not as bad as most people want to make out and we have a real shot at a winning record.

    Colorado doesn't have an awesome football program, but got an invite

    Boise State has a better football program than Utah, but didn't get an invite

    Pitt 3-3
    Cal 3-2
    OSU 1-4
    Ariz 1-5
    UCLA 3-3
    WSU 3-2
    Col 1-5

    Solid competition?

    BYU 4-2 has a better record than any of the teams left on Utah's schedule, and we all know what "solid competition" Utah fans think BYU is.

    Utah has already lost to the only "solid competition" they'll play this season, and the Utes ducked the only real solid competition the PAC 12 had to offer this year.

    It is funny how lightly regarded BYU's wins over Washington, Arizona, UCLA, Oregon State and Oregon have been over the last few years, but how "solid" those same teams are now that Utah is playing them every week.

    Go back and read Utah fan comments about BYU's win over Washington just last season and you'll see how hypocrital Utah fans have become about their "solid" competition.

    btw, the New Mexico Bowl will look very appealing to Utah fans when the Utes are playing Colorado in their season finale.

    socalcougar!

    Agree with every single point you made. Utah missed a golden opportunity to get to the PAC-12 title game. I didn't think they would, but everthing from schedule to key injuries on other teams to USC's bowl ineligibility was in Utah's favor. Had they performed better, they could have made serious progress in recruiting and earned respect. Now as it sits, they haven't proven anything and the golden opportunity was "fumbled" away.

    I still think a 7-5 or 6-6 record is possible, which is right in line with my forecast at the beginning of the year. It's disappointing, but it will take a few years to add depth and get accilmated to the rgors of the PAC-12 schedule.

    I think Hays, with a little experience, will be a fine QB for the Utes. I doubt that Wynn will be the number-one QB next year, having been counted on twice in two years and twice, injuries forced him to the sideline.

    His arm seems stronger than Wynn's -- perhaps time will remove the rough hewn edges and he'll be successful.

    Now, if Heaps could figure things out ....

    Tom in CA: it's hard to have to much repect for a team that blew a lead in the fourth quarter against a backup QB on a team the Utes beat by 44 points. that said having watched Hays play last saturday, I'm not worried. He appeared to have a stronger arm than Wynn, better legs, and doesn't break any time you get near him. I think once he learns to read FBS defenses better, specifically their speed, he'll be fine. I think in the long run the Utes may be even better off.

    As a BYU and USC fan, these are my observations about Utah after watching all Utah's games, and all of USC games (and many many PAC-10 games over the years).

    1. Utah's defense is good. The offense has hurt the defense with turnovers and bad field position.
    2. Chow is the real deal. At UCLA his quarterbacks were injured and UCLA's head coach kept changing the system. After his first year at USC, Chow couldn't be stopped. At BYU he put up huge numbers, and he can do it at Utah with a healthy O-line and quarterback. With Chow, USC would have beat Texas in 05 for the national championship (moot point after Reggie Bush).
    3. Arizona is better than its record. Arizona's offense can score on anyone. That game is no gimmie.
    4. Hays has a nice swagger to his game that Wynn is missing. Whether it leads to victories I don't know, but at least he's confident.
    5. I wonder if Brian Johnson was a better quaterback than a quarterback coach.
    6. Utah missed an opportunity to get to the title game with USC out of bowls and no Stanford or Oregon on the schedule.

    "Hays is going to do just fine...Based on what? Throwing four interceptions and fumbling twice in a game and a half?"
    ________

    Hey bro/sis - Utah fans aren't like BYU fans...we don't panic when our QBs make a few mistakes. It is what it is...Hays is our guy now, he hasn't had many starting reps yet and just played 2 of the top 5 teams in the Pac 12.

    See, what Utah fans know, is that our coaches will actually coach. They'll help the players clean up the mistakes that have been happening the last two games.

    And Hays is our guy now. He'll make some more mistakes but he'll get more comfortable along the way and he'll do just fine.

    Barring the forced throws and some crucial dropped passes last week, Hays actually looked better than Wynn, Heaps or Nelson. Don't get me wrong...forced throws and drops count...but like I said, he'll get coached and he'll get better.

    Now I do understand why you made your comment. BYU fans would've just booed everybody and chanted for the 3rd stringer to come in.

    Welcome to Duck and all his troll buddies. Glad you all have Utah articles to post on to forget about your team down there in Cougartown. I feel sorry for the terrible position your team is in and the fact that with all those tough games ahead of you there is really nothing to look forward to. The only hope you had was to beat the U and we all know how that turned out.

    It is truly sad that since you all have nothing to do, you need to post on your rival's articles. Duck was gone off the boards for 2 weeks after the Utah pasting of the Cougars and now he posts on Utah articles 4 to 1 over BYU articles and he is a BYU "fan."

    "BYU's ‎schedule is what it is, and what more were they to do during their first year of going ‎independent? "

    Umm, maybe win the good games that were on the weak schedule instead of just the weak ones? You talk about the Utes expectations in their division (which could be realistic with a healthy starting QB, but that is neither here nor there), all I heard about up until kickoff of the BYU game was how outmatched the Utes were in talent to BYU, how BYU had their best ever recruiting classes and most depth, especially on defense, and then they went out and laid an egg, giving up 5 TDs to the Utes offense.

    If this is how your team responds to a couple decent BCS teams, it's gonna be sad to see what the Notre Dames and Georgia Techs do to you. We've already proved this year that it doesn't make you a better team just playing great teams every week, you have to step your game up, too. So far the Cougars have simply played to the level of all their opponents (well, except Utah).

    Based on what?

    Throwing four interceptions and fumbling twice in a game and a half?
    Losing back-to-back home games?
    Being a JC transfer that NOBODY except Utah wanted?

    If the situations were reversed, we all know Utah fans would be laughing their heads off at the arrogance of a team, fanbase and coaching staff who expected to compete in a BCS conference with an injury-prone starting QB and a JC transfer backup who's averaging a turnover a quarter.

    If Whittingham had spent half as much time recruiting a decent QB as he has recruiting defensive linemen, the Utes wouldn't be in such dire straits.

    Obviously, you forgot all about Oregon and Stanford since Utah was given a pass by the PAC 12 not having to play the two best teams in the conference.

    Yes, you've played the toughest part of your schedule, but you've also played the only part of your schedule that matters as far as competing for the conference championship; it's like losing to TCU, BYU and AFA in your first three conference games in the MWC.

    ASU is 3-0; Utah is 0-3.

    The only thing Utah has left to play for is pride and bowl eligibility.

    Please...so many of you coug fans are reaching and hoping. The Utes aren't doomed, Chow still knows how to coach, and even Hays is going to do just fine.
    The truth is, Utah screwed up in their recruiting efforts concerning the O Line and quarterbacks. But these two groups are being addressed like crazy in their current recruiting efforts and they have some awesome prospects.
    This year is tough and will probably continue to be up and down. But I have little doubt that when those two positions are in better shape Chow will excel at Utah. To those above who say the game has passed Chow by and point to UCLA as an example...realize that Chow wasn't allowed to coach as he wanted to coach while there which is why they agreed to part ways. Whittingham won't make the same mistake.
    I won't predict if or when Utah will next get to a BCS bowl, but I'll predict it'll happen long before BYU gets there.

    After watching Hays play Saturday, I have confidence he can do well. Yes, he made more mistakes than Wynn, but some of that may have to do with wanting to make something happen.

    All you BYU fans gloating need to remember, the 3 teams we've lost to in the conference are 3 of the best in the conference. They each only have one loss and only one of those three losses was a conference game where USC lost to ASU. So there is no shame in those losses. We've played the toughest part of our schedule and it has been tough. That being said, I would rather have lost to teams of that caliber than have my win/loss record propped up by wins over lowe level opponents like UCF and Utah State. Even Ole Miss is hovering near the bottom of the SEC.

    Good luck against Oregon State, TCU and Hawaii.

    Speaking of offensive coordinators, in their only head to head match up Norm Chow took Brandon Doman to the wood shed. I don't think anything more needs to be said about that. I don't think there's any doubt which team is better coached.

    "Utes have 'full faith' Jon Hays can lead team"

    Isn't this the same song and dance we've been hearing from the Utah basketball program for the last five years?

    It's nice to have confidence, but sometimes you just have to wake up and smell the coffee -- Utah's QB situation was tenuous, at best, to start the season, with an injured starter and no quality backups, and now every Utah fan's worst nightmare has occurred; Wynn proved he was too fragile to last a full season, and his replacement is proving why you can't rely on a JC transfer that no one else wanted.

    The fans always want to think their school is better than the other, but somehow in the end our win-loss totals are the same many years. The thing to remember is, it doesn't matter anymore. UTAH is UTAH and BYU is BYU.

    What are the Utes supposed to say . . . we don't have faith in Hays? But reality is reality, and the reality is that Wynn is not in the same category as Smith or Johnson, and Hays is not in the same category as Wynn. He's a rookie with a lot to learn. I don't know whether or not Hays will grow into a good QB, but expect a lot of offensive struggles ahead.

    The U will be lucky to become become bowl eligible. The good news is that the Utes have Colorado and Arizona on the horizon. I'm not sure that those two teams are much better than Idaho or Idaha State. (Said with a little bit of jest, but not much.) Oregon State, UCLA and Washington State have turned from games that the Utes would likely win with Wynn, to games that could go either way.

    I'm actually cheering for the Utes to get bowl eligible. I would love to watch them play in the New Mexico bowl. The 6-6 Utes vs 7-5 Wyoming Cowboys. That's a game that would draw a crowd.

    I've really enjoyed Norms creativity on offense. a little dissapointed with the O-Line but depth and execution will come with time. Its definitely not on Norm for the turnovers. as for the bowl situation, ill take my chances with the U's remaining games over being stuck in the Y's Junk bowl every year. if Utah doesn't get to one so be it but at least they played a quality schedule. Utes 6-6>Y's 9-3. cant go undefeated every year.

    Re: Qwest Perfected "I know coach Chow already has two really good QB's coming in for next year so I expect the Utes to become even deeper at that position in the future." You want to know how often I heard the same sentiment about Chow at UCLA? It was a regular occurrence-- always "next year." And "next year" never happened while he was there. Just like what happened at UCLA, fingers get pointed elsewhere but at the offensive coordinator. College game has passed the dude up. Face it.

    I wish Jordan the best in his recovery. It's tough to go through two of those within a year span.

    I think the Utes will be ok. Hays has better arm strength and can also move the ball with his feet. His decision making will get better as he get's more experience. He forced things a bit too much last week but he also did some good things.

    If the Utes can get the turnovers taken care of, they will be just fine. It also helps that their conference schedule gets easier the second half. From what I have seen there is no reason they shouldn't have confidence in Hays. He had a number of balls last week that were dropped that shouldn't have been.

    I know coach Chow already has two really good QB's coming in for next year so I expect the Utes to become even deeper at that position in the future.

    I hope they can turn things around this week against Pitt.

    Of course they're going to say that. But, for my Utes brethren, enjoy watching all 30+ bowls this bowl season without seeing your beloved team in any of them. Any bowl that my Cougs play in will be better than your shut-out. And how about that offensive genious in your offensive coordinator? Thought we was going to revamp and energize the offense.

    Suuuure they have "full faith." You think we was born yesterday? I bet they'd rather have Tom Brady leading their team. Admit it, Utes! Admit it! Ha! I knew it!

    My guess is that ute fans will be pleasantly surprised with Jon Hays. At least the kid has heart and a little fire in his gut which is more than was shown by Jake Heaps. And this from a die hard Cougar fan!
