Lifelong Ute:Again, I appreciate your optimism but we're not getting
to play in the Rose Bowl until we play UCLA there in 2012.
Striker, UCLA is not bad, they are average, like Utah.While head-to-head is the best factor when deciding who that better team is,
transitive logic doesn't generally translate well.For example, Texas
Tech beat Oklahoma rather convincingly then got blown out by Iowa State and
Texas. Texas, in turn got blown out by----Oklahoma.In this case,
Arizona blew out UCLA---saw the game on ESPN, it was over at the half (42-7).
Utah convincingly beat Zona on the road. Conversely, Utah was deplorable v Cal,
who got beat by UCLA. UCLA had the one point win v ASU, who beat Utah.Both teams are pretty evenly matched.So, with transitive logic out
the window, you have to focus on the match-ups.The Ute defense is
stingy with the run, and has met their most success when playing weaker QBs.
UCLA is a balanced foe, so shutting down their run and forcing their average QB
to make plays is a must. Certainly, UCLA must be thinking the same thing about
the Utes.This game is a toss-up for me. UCLA is playing better, but
the Utes are showing confidence.MY PREDICTION: Utah by 3.
Striker, and Arizona clobbered UCLA. Should be a good game. Go Utes.
UCLA just beat ASU, who clobbered Utah. How can anyone say UCLA is bad? They
have a decent record, similar to Utah's. If you say UCLA is bad, and Utah with
the similar record must also be bad. Odd logic.
Go Bruins, Cougars, and Buffs. Hand it to the Utes and let them finish at 5-7
as they so richly deserve. No bowling this year and hopefully next, etc, etc.
Utah versus WYO in the Vegas bowl, that would be a joke. Wyoming would be the
worst team with a winning record in any bowl. I would rather go to the Sun Bowl
and play a good ACC team such as Georgia Tech or Va Tech. Go UTES!!!!
Also lots of chatter from Las Vegas that Utah plays Wyoming in the Las Vegas
bowl.Would U go?
Both KSL and ESPN are reporting on the possibility of Utah still making the Pac
12 championship game.We're only 2 games back from Arizona State, and
since UCLA beat ASU if we beat UCLA then ASU's tiebreaker over us would not mean
anything.Just 2 games back from playing for the inaugural Pac 12
chamionship and Rose Bowl game!
Juan Blanco Cuatro for cien plus yards equals:Utah 31UCLA
208-4 is probable and so is...Vegas: Utah vs TCUSun: Utah vs Virgina Tech/Georgia TechGo UTES!!
This game should be the toughest regular season game remaining on our schedule.
With a win, we will become bowl eligible, and in good position to get to the Sun
Bowl. Go Utes!
I admire how Kyle prepares his team week in and week out. Through all of the
adversity, he never hit the panic button. He just coaches up his team and gets
them ready to compete.I'm excited for this weeks game. Both teams
have some momentum right now and I'm expecting it to be a close game.Here's to a strong finish for the Utes!
UCLA is bad.This offense is coming around and the defense is one of
the best in the nation.Utah 30UCLA 14I'll be
there. Will U?
My prediction is still 8-4 with at least a game in the Vegas bowl vs. TCU.
Possibility of the Sun bowl if the PAC 12 gets 2 in the bcs games. Vegas pays
1.2 and Sun pays 2 million. PAC 12 game will pay us almost 1.3 simply for
Eligibility, count on it!
