I was referring to BYU because i assumed you were a BYU fan. I guess you are just neutral or something? Idk.


Are you really comparing WAC teams to Pac-12 teams based on overall record? We'll see how good the WAC does against the Pac tonight when BYU plays Oregon State, eh?

Fort Worth, Texas

To all the Ute haters, according to USA Today rankings before this weeks games:

#37 South Florida (SOS 96)
#38 Utah (8)
#48 Pitt (29)
#54 BYU (48)
#65 Central Florida (123)
#82 Oregon State
#83 Arizona (21)
#84 Utah State (85)
#110 San Jose State (36)

So if Pitt is bad, who has BYU beat? Bo Diddly Tech?

Way to go Utes, you have a win. It's hilarious seeing you pat each other on the backs on this comment board after beating Pitt.

Saint George, UT

bballjunkie: 'the worst team I've ever seen in Pitt'? Really? You must have only been watching the last 2 or 3 years. Pitt's had some teams that couldn't beat Dixie State. Utah got a qood win on the road. The D pitched a shutout. Is Pitt LSU? Of course not. They aren't ASU or Washington either. But they're certainly not San Jose State. The thing is, as much as the blue bloods like to revel in Utah's misery (and yes, Ute fans do the same thing with BYU) every time Utah loses this year it makes the 54-10 game look that much worse.


Tis could be a perfect day.......a Utah win and BYU loss. It will happen!

Great win today Utes! It was an ugly win but we'll take it!


Pac 10.2-

Yeah, we can't all be so lucky as to be able to beat amazing teams like San Jose State and UCF week in and week out like the mighty cougs do.

What... kind of logic is that? Duckhunter would be proud.

Before this week, according to USA Today:

Arizona has a #2 SOS, Idaho #101.
UCLA has a #14 SOS, Hawaii #108
Colorado has a #26 SOS, San Jose Sate #36

BYU fans must be getting desperate trying to talk up WAC teams they can compete with while downplaying Ute wins.

Highland, UT

I only saw the 1st quarter of this game as I had to leave to coach my 5th grade team. It was 14-3 Pitt when I left. It sounds like Utah must have dominated the game from that point on? I don't think Pitt is all that good but when you go across the country and win on the road it is a good win. Congrats utes.

Says a guy who stormed the field after winning a 1-3 team.

Southern, UT

You can talk all the smack you want about weak team and stuff, but I can't remember the last time an FBS team kept another FBS team out of the red zone much less the end zone.

Pleasant Grove, UT

Utah football lol, ute fans lol, Utah pac12 hopes and dreams lol. Anything Chicago related, I have to be nice, but go Lions!

Pleasant Grove, UT


No there is no chance of another loosing PAC 12 team to get lucky twice in the same year. Don't be upset that your team wont win a game against that pathetic PAC 12 schedule. Lol

Utah in this game - it was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

DEFENSE!! Stopping the nation's #1 rushing stone cold!

Special Teams?? 2 TDs allowed? You should have only one or two all season long! Still, 4 field goals in that stadium with that wind was impressive.

John White IV was awesome! Offensive line pass blocking - atrocious! John PENALTY Cullen needs to quit killing drives with penalties.

Good win for Utah, but they won't win a lot more games if they can't convert 3rd downs and can't score in the red zone!

Again: DEEEEEEFFFFFEEEEENNSSSSSSEEEE! was incredible for Utah!

BYU still rules
Nephi, UT

Uteolgy, I didn't know BYU "won" Utah State. Does that mean they get to take them home and keep them? Ha ha! Utah is fortunate they don't play USU, it would be a better game than today's.

Duckhunter, thanks for a gracious post. It is one thing to talk smack in support of one's team. It is another to recognize what your rival did and what it had to overcome to do it. Again, thanks.

Pitt > Ole Miss

What happens should Bronco's alma mater beat his current employer and then the Utes thrash the Beavers?

It doesn't matter... 54-10.


Duckhunter: "I only saw the 1st quarter of this game as I had to leave to coach my 5th grade team."

You COACH at BYU?! This is awesome!!


Duckhunter, you know I'm joking, just keeping things fun and light. Thanks for the compliment, good luck to your team today.

Junk a lot, wow brother you are all over the board. Let me simplify for you... 54-10. After that, there's no need to talk about SOS. But if you do insist on going there, BYU's SOS is weaker than Utah's.

PAC 10.2 Doormat, I like your sammyg screen name better. You were building excellent brand equity with that one.
