Supposed to be cold and snowy. Hopefully this helps the running team. Defense
needs to put a hurt early on the freshman to rattle him and put a lot of
pressure on this guy. Let's go Utes.
It is on KJZZ and it is on a delay.
Looks like it is delayed for an infomercial per the KJZZ website. Pretty lousy
It's a game that has means something....and it's not at 8:15 at night when
anyone who cares about college football is watching Stanford and Cal on
It's a game that is so meaningless that its playing 2nd fiddle to an infomercial
in Utah's home market.
Current weather conditions in Pullman:28.1 °F Feels Like
23 °FChance of Snow70% chance of precipitationA
slick field won't be helpful for White who relies on quickness and agility.
I'm looking forward to this game. We handled snow pretty well last week, but
like KamUte said, I'm putting the main burden of the win on our defense. This
WSU QB is a talented kid who's riding a good high right now, so they need to get
to him and put him in the dirt a few times early on to rattle him and force him
to throw early, badly and, preferably, to our corners and safeties. As for
our offense, we all know they're gonna be loading the box to stop White, so I
put this on Chow's proven ability to change up the running plays to give White
the chance to do what he does best: grab the ball, read the routes, squirt
through, and RUN. Hays just needs to keep doing what he's doing: handing it to
White and keeping the defense honest with a few good throws when they focus too
much on the run.For special teams, they just need to not fumble punt
returns and the kickers just need to keep doing awesome.All in all,
definitely a winnable game, but not one to take lightly. Utes 28 WSU 17 GO UTES!
The prediction of my post above was for Chris B. He continue to be child play in
the Cougar Section. So, tell Chris to have fun or whatever.
@lanius "It's a game that has means something....and it's not
at 8:15 at night when anyone who cares about college football is watching
Stanford and Cal on "your" network"What is your
problem? I'm not the biggest BYU fan in the world, but seriously! Are you so
little that you can't see what BYU is in the middle of trying to do? Everyone
who is a rational college football fan knows that BYU couldn't just schedule
powerhouses right off the bat. It would be nice to see some better teams than
New Mexico State, but they have to start somewhere, right?
@Duckhunter"It is on KJZZ and it is on a delay." Yeah it's pretty lame. But you know what would be much, much worse? Not being
in the Pac 12 and having four bye weeks in a row, and being so upset about it
that we feel the need to get on another team's articles to throw out tv smack :)
Relevant programs play weak teams and their games are still nationally televised
on ESPN.Irrelevant programs play weak teams and their games are
taped-delayed locally on KJZZ.The truth hurts -- being a
bottom-dweller in a big boy conference doesn't make you a big boy.
If the game is so meaningless, why so many trolls?
"The truth hurts -- being a bottom-dweller in a big boy conference doesn't

lanius--It's a game that has means something....Yes, it
will determine whether Utah finishes with a winning or losing PAC 12 record.davidutefan--why so many trolls? Non-crimson-glasses-wearing sports fans check in once in awhile to help keep
the Utah blogs somewhat grounded in reality.
Come on fellow cougs now's our chance. Let's embarrass the utes with TV smack.
That'll show em.
Utah should win this game. The defense is outstanding, lets hope the offense
continues to play like they have over the last 3 weeks.Go UTES!!@mussingaroundRelevant programs prove it on the field, so do
irrelevant programs.The truth hurts, 2-8 vs teams above .500 in the
last 24 games makes BYU irrelevant.
@mussingaroundLast time I checked, Utah wasn't fighting to stay out of the
cellar. Your inferiority complex is showing. Beating up on New Mexico School of
Trucking doesn't make you a big boy. The truth hurts sometimes.
davidutefanI agree wholeheartedly! That's exactly what I thought...
as I read the comments on the BYU gameday. Why so many trolls for a team that
is supposedly irrelevant.Don't know about up on the Palouse, but
here next door in the Columbia basin, it is cold, wet, sloppy and snowing well
enough that you probably won't complete a 40 yard pass.My respect
goes with Coach Whit and his men. My heart goes with the university that means
so much to Eastern Washington. My condolences go to you loyal Ute fans who are
represented so poorly by the brats.And my apologies go out for my
own brats on your board. Here's hoping for a more civil future.
Research shows that the Ute game is live today on DirectTV FCS 623 at 3pm.
Uteology"Relevant programs prove it on the field, so do
irrelevant programs."For irrelevant, see mirror.The
truth hurts, 6-9 vs D1-A teams above .500 in the last 26 games makes Utah
Haughty Cougars, is Utah is irrelevant, what does losing 54-10 to us make you?
@deductive reasoningI think we can both agree that...1.
6-9 is more relevant than 2-82. 54-10 win is more relevant than a
54-10 loss3. PAC-12 schedule (Utah SOS #34) is more relevant than a
WAC-lite schedule (BYU SOS #97)4. Finally, 7 of 10 is more relevant
then 3 of 10
haaha make no mistake Wazzzzooo is weak and irrelevant. They lost 5 in a row
before beating the ASU devils who are now exposed as another fraud Pac team(who
destroyed the Utesies remember). This game is no different then playing a 1-aa
@deductiveActually Utah vs D1 teams above .500...2008:
6-02009: 3-32010: 4-32011: 1-3 As of today, UCLA and Pitt at
5-5 can still get 7 wins (3-3??)So as of today over 2 seasons: Utah is 5-6 BYU 2-8 over same period3 seasons: Utah 8-94 seasons: Utah 14-9
UteologyYeah whoopee, SOS smeshh o s.A team with an SOS of 13
beat a team with SOS of 5. ASU is 27 but just lost to a team with SOS of 44.
And Clemson(27) is being drilled right now by NC state who isn't even on the
Sagarin, Not much more than mumbo jumbo and algorithms, Doesn't mean anything.
typoClemson is SOS 60.
Duckhunter | 9:04 a.m. Nov. 19, 2011 Highland, UT Wrong, as
per usual. Game on KJZZ 14 is live.jarka-rus | 3:04 p.m. Nov. 19,
2011 Layton, UtahYou are correct. All that matters is head to
head. That game was 54-10 at LES and your team quit. Ouch.
54-10 zzzzzzzz You should change your screen name to broken record
or beating a dead horse. How does that change the fact you aren't going to the
Rose bowl or conf. championship? How did it feel to get blown out 2 games in a
row? That's right your obsession with Byu is the only thing that matters. you
would be jumping for joy going 1-11 if that meant the one win was against Byu,
And Byu went 11-1.Keep preaching that 54-10 in 20 years. We still got the
I don't think the weather will hurt John White IV's ability to run any more than
it will hurt WSU's ability to throw. This kind of game conditions will always
favor the defense, and there is no question which team has the superior defense.
I expect that the Utes will win easily. So far, defensively, they
look good. But we have all seen the Utes D shine in the snow before. The
defense is moving the ball, although blocks in the back out of bounds are not
good, but I suppose it shows intensity.As for the juvenile insults
flying back and forth here, I have to ask, "Why?" As a BYU fan, how
does it ever hurt me that this game is on KJZZ instead of CBS? (other than the
lack of HD). For their first year in an AQ conference, the Utes are doing about
as I expected. They're in the fight for the Southern Division championship.
Meanwhile, given the lack of time BYU in putting together a schedule, they are
doing OK. I wish they could have beaten both Texas teams, but an
under-performing quarterback and a new and learning-on-the-job offensive
coordinator made that not possible. I take no joy in the Ute's
struggles this year. What kind of person really gets off on others' misfortunes,
anyway? There is a word for that: "Schadenfreude," joy in the
misfortunes of other. Whether Utah wins or not today doesn't affect the Cougars
and any way. Whether the Cougars win tonight has no impact on the Utes.But people are going to continue to yap at each other, I suppose, something
they should have given up on the elementary school playgrounds. It doesnt
require a lot of maturity to write things you would never say to a persons face.
Utes are looking like a PAC 10.2 Champ after 1 quarter of this game. Refs
cutting the newbies some slack. Hays never had forward progress and WSU should
have had a safety.
White is my hero! now, GO COUGARS! I love watching games in snow! Thanks for the
great playing conditions Pullman! :)
What a gritty victory for the Utes. John White is great, and he has another year
ahead of him. The defense had its ebbs and flows, but in overtime, when it was
crucial, they dominated. Good job. I'm glad the Cougars won't have
to play in a blizzard tonight.
Duckhunter | 9:04 a.m. Nov. 19, 2011 Highland, UTIt is on KJZZ and
it is on a delay.It's sooo much better to start at 8:30pm in Utah
when nobody on the East Coast or Midwest is watching, if they cared to begin
with. I'm sure all blue chip recruits in Guam are riveted to the screen.
