@worfWOW-to try and compare San Jose State and Idaho with UCLA,
Arizona, WSU, and even Colorado is like comparing BYU with Utah. The program,
the conference, the coaches, the athletes in the PAC-12 are so superior to the
WAC. The players make the biggest difference make sure at the end of the year
watch the draft and see how many more players come out of the PAC-12 vs WAC. I
agree with KF "what the world are you talking about".
Utah has no chance against Oregon if it somehow wins its division. I watched
last saturday as Oregon demolished undefeated Stanford and Andrew Luck @
Stanford. It would be a blowout. Utah has good coaching and capable athletes but
not close to elite status.
I'm glad I'm not the only that thinks Chris B isn't a Utah fan. I won't go as
far as saying he is a BYU fan though posing as a Utah fan. Man, these message
boards are interesting.
@worf,what in the world are you talking about?
Kosta Fesenko,A year ago, some cougar fans stated they play like a
top twenty team. A person like Chris B states it's because of an easier
schedule. That's the same for the utes this year. Thay're playing the lower
tier pac teams. I don't think UCLA, Colorado, Arizona, or Washington State is
much different than San Jose State or Idaho. And now the utes are top twenty
and has the best defense in the pac? Utah is not Southern Cal, Oregon, Arizona
State, Washington, Stanford, but a mid to lower tier pac team. Period!-- Wait
for basketball and Chris goes into hiebernation.
@Magnathere was a time, probably a year or so ago, that Chris B came
on here and posted something that was very much pro-BYU. He then hurried and
explained himself by saying that his wife had "hacked" his account and
that she was a "TDS fan". During the 2009-2010 season, Chris first
showed up around here. He would be the first to comment on each ute basketball
article claiming that utah was a "legit top 25 team". I am fairly
certain that Chris B is a parody account. I am also sure that he has an
alter-ego, but I haven't been able to tell who it is.
Magna-I admittedly like to stir the pot. However, I still say
things how I see things.Utah is playing like a top 20 team the past
couple of weeks: FactArizona State is tanking, hard: FactWe still
have a great chance to play in the Pac 12 game based on the facts.I'm also 100% positive byu can and never will be relevant anymore. Decades ago
they had above average coaches who were brilliant in using the passing game to
overcome their lack of true athletes.Coaching has more than caught
up to byu.BYU cannot recruit more than a couple of inner-city kids a
year: Fact.With that, please show me any championship or near
championship football team in the past 20 years that has a similar percentage of
slow white kids.Hint: You won't find any.So long as byu
has the honor code, inner city kids will stay away. And with that , they can
kiss any chance at relevance - goodbye!
Mark it down? Can't beat Cal, Washington, Boise State, TCU, Notre Dame, Arizona
State, and all of a sudden the utes have the best defense in the pac? Is that
what you think Chriss? You're a funny gal.
@Elk Hair Caddis "...were are the UTE fans?"Enjoying our
Chris B- Are you really just a cougar fan trying to stir the pot? That makes a
lot more sense to me, given the stuff you write.
Although the Pac 12 championship game seemed like an impossibilty a month ago,
the way ASU is tanking and how great our guys are playing right now(even our QB)
a matchup with Oregon is a strong possibility.It would be
interesting to see the best Pac 12 offense(Oregon) against the best Pac 12
defense(UTES).Impossible to win?Yep - just like the
Sugar Bowl was!Utah Oregon Pac 12 Title GameMark it Down
I totally agree with you Ibleedcrimson. The coaching has been phenomonal. It
really makes you wonder about UCLA and BYU firing a guy like Norm Chow.
"If you're going to post a ridiculous comment, at least use correct
spelling and grammar "If the DNews allowed editing I'm sure you
would see a decline in this phenomena. Lot's of people post using tablets and
smart phones which increases the challenge. I wouldn't indict someones
intellengence based on spelling and grammar on a forum, now the content of their
thoughts is another story.I think it took Utah a game or two to
adjust to Hays and adapt the offense to his limited talents. This demonstrates
how good Utah coaching is. Most detractors predicted Utah going 8-4 maybe 7-5
with a healthy Jordan Wynn, now Utah is staged to have the same kind of record
with a Div II QB with zero Div I experience at the helm. A healthy Wynn would
have meant at least 1 more win maybe 2.

article...were are the UTE fans?They're on BYU articles ridiculing
the cougs. Ever heard of Chris B?
I often wonder how old/intelligent the people who comment on these articles are.
There are spelling/grammatical errors in nearly every post, especially in those
comments posted by both the BYU and Utah fanatics. If you're going to post a
ridiculous comment, at least use correct spelling and grammar so you don't come
off as an even bigger fool than your opinion makes you out to be.
Interesting article...were are the UTE fans?
