The Utes do have so much to lose. Great article about the strenghts of the team
and insight into the players. I am sure Bryce McCain is going to be ready to
play. He certainly will be working hard to keep Austin Collie in check. I hope
they let Brian Johnson run some. It would be sad if he got hurt when on the run
cause they will need him in the Bowl game, but that is a real tool the Utes have
to work with. This will be the game to be talked about for the next
year. Cougars by 3, 24 - 21.
This is the biggest regular season game of the year for both teams and everyone
knows it. The coaches just don't want to say it because they're already
fighting an uphill battle to keep a bunch of 18-23 year olds from letting their
emotions get the best of them. Three years ago a slightly better BYU
team lost at home to Utah because the BYU players were psyched out of their
minds to finally be favored against the U after three losing seasons. The last
couple of years the teams have been evenly matched. This year, with Utah
favored, we'll see how they handle the pressure. I'll be in the stands taking
the abuse from the RES fan base. At least we're a Boise State loss
away from a BCS play-in game so, for MWC fans, this is a win-win game.
Although, the refs will take care of Utah this year (like they did for BYU last
year) because they know where their bread gets buttered and they'll take
guaranteed BCS money. BYU must keep it from coming down to being decided by the
zebras to win. Otherwise the cougars will be the ones whinning about the
officials all year.
O McCain you better be worried because austin collie is going to have a field
day on you. we will see if the utes can stop byu's big three. GO COUGARS!!
McCain scares me. He gives up so many big plays. I keep hearing how he is so
incredibly fast but he's given up a lot of big plays this year (not to mention
4th and 18 last year). He is the weak spot in our D.
can anyone tell me if its the Aggies or utes we are playing this weekend?
I agree that the Utes have much to lose and win with this game, but only a
desparate Cougar fan would be blind to the fact that BYU does also. 1)How
embarssasing to the Cougs if their big brother goes undefeated again, and
accomplishes the single goal that the Cougs had for 2008, BCS. 2)Conference
title on the line, at least a share for the Cougs. 3)Could be an outside shot
at the BCS for the Cougs should Boise lose. 4)Have to go back to this point.
From January 2008 the only focus and goal that Cougar-nation had was going to
the BCS. They put every egg they had in the BCS basket by opening their mouths
and starting their own hype machine. It would be bad enough for them not to
make it, but for Utah to go AGAIN would be devistating.Sounds to me
like both squads have huge stakes on the line, so lets not buy the Coug spin
that they have nothing to lose and are care-free. Which team has closed
practices this week, just asking!
You kewgs think we can't pick you out, your stink is unmistakable. Utah will be
ready for you.. Austin callie will be checked.. I'd worry sbout Maxie boy
getting and astrology class on the field since we'll put him to look at the
starts so often. TCU's OL coun't stop us neither will you!!! where was austin in
forth worth???A TRUE FAN NEVER points out weakness their team! NEVER
UTES ALL THE WAY.. Should I say: as a "coug fan" I am
really worried about pitta being hurt, or Max's mistakes under pressure. And our
D better show up because we are not going to be able to keep up with them as we
did against CSU. RIDICULOUS ridiculous
Hall is in for the most depressing game of his life. He will be sacked at least
4 times. Hurried 7-8. Hit 16. And throw a minimum of 3 picks. Utes will win
this one BIG!! COUNT ON IT.
Even if Johnson runs (and he will),no worries. BYU can't hurt him, with their
weeanie pull down pillow tackles.
The girl in the picture (advertisement above)represents BYU fan faces as the
11/22 game progresses. Get a good look, because it won't be pretty. In fact,
by games end it will be quite ugly.
The Aggies are off, the Utes have a scrimage with BY Academy on Saturday at 4:00
PM. Public is welcome to attend.
uh...collie had over a hundred yards receiving against TCU's lockdown corners,
bro. I don't know if the cougs will win but rest assured, as a ute fan, collie
will own your U's secondary. No one has been able to stop him all year and that
is why he is leading the nation in receiving yards. Give credit where credit is
due. May the best team...destroy the other. hahaha
We'll see how pillowy soft Johnson feels after saying hi to Coleby Clawson.
Collie is a good player and I am sure he will have 2 touchdowns and 160 yards
and Unga may have one, BUT Brown will have two, Casteel will have one, Reed for
one, Asiata for two and then there is our King!! So will be stop Collie, maybe
not, will we out score him.....COUNT ON IT!!!!!
If there is one player for the Y who can carry the rest of his team on his back,
it's Austin Powers er Collie. He is the Eric Weddle of their team. Utah will
at best do damage control and keep him from winning the game for them. If Utah
does contain Collie, it will be huge! He is the best in the country and Eric
Weddle will be trying to stop him when he (Collie) starts playing on Sunday.GO UTES!
I'm a diehard Ute, but I'm really worried about this one. You know BYU's only
motiviation here is to spoil our season. There is no higher goal. I think they
will be ready and will play with more emotion.
You have every reason to worry, as does the school up north...
This game is going to be awesome, no doubt about it. This really is a match-up
of two awesome teams and it is going to be close. The last few years have been
close games (bar Utah's blowout of BYU when they went on to crack down the BCS
barrier).The last few years games have been determined by offensive
plays at the end, but I'm picking this years game winner to be a defensive stop
rather that a big TD to win it.Hopefully the winner gets a BCS bid.
Do like AFA and hold or tackle recievers on every play....if you have home
town refs, it may work....
So Sorenson, how many TD throws would BJ have had to make to get the U record?
Brother Brigham would be proud to see his team take down the Academy down south,
no wonder he only called it the academy. A university is where you go after you
attend an academy, a Montessori school, or other prep schools like the TDS. Let's hear it for the school the Prophet founded the University of
Deseret!! GO UTES!!!
Brother Brigham would be even prouder to see the school that honors his name
humble the Jolly Utah Gang up on the hill.JUG 19BYU 38GOOOOO COUGARS!!!!!
Big deal, Freddie Touchdown Brown had over 100 yards on 9 catches against TCU.
BYU is too much of a 2 horse pony that is easy to contain if you have the speed.
Utah 34 BYU 17
I'm putting on my running shoes to get ready for a 3rd storming of the field
this year. Not because it'll be a last second victory, but to get a close-up
look of the MWC trophy and join the "BCS" chant. Pretty fun year to be a Ute
How could you use Humble in the same sentence? Go make some green jello -
you will need it to go with the HUMBLE PIE we ordered for you BY'sU
Gang TO Victory UTES!!
Johnson will have all day to throw, all day.
this season and the yewt faithful pretend they are invincible.
Unbelievable!!!This weekend your undefeated season dies too. No
surviving the third NDE. Just walk into the light yewts, walk into the light
and know that the light was from the BYU train that hit you.Theres a
ThreePete coming this weekend....going on four next season.
I'll take "near death" but still getting the W over a 32-7 pummeling any
day!!I had an overly excited BYU fan tell me that BYU was a freight
train coming into SLC after their UCLA victory. More like a train wreck.
Get the marshmellows out so the BLUE secondary doesn't fall and hurt themselves.
LEARN HOW TO STICK SOMEBODY. You know who I mean.
Two great teams will take the field on Saturday. Players should be
recognized for the talents that they have and the efforts they give. Fans
should be loyal and supportive of those athletes and enjoythe
competition as it was meant to be. Players deserve respect from the fans 'win or
lose.' Theseyoung men will give their very best. Yes, be supportive of
YOUR team. But respect the efforts of all players. One other note.
Let's try to respect one another as well.
We are very lucky in this state to have a great rivalry like this one. It should
be another unbelievable game. I've always bled red, but I greatly respect the
Y's athletic dept.Close game 27-24 Utah on the final drive.
Im also a die hard ute and i expect byU to be focused but what about our team
they will be motivated as well here is a few reasons why........1.
out right mwc championship2. bcs berth3. senior day4.
undefeated season5. 2006, 2007 games vs byU (heart breakers)7. oh ya
and they are playing byU8. bcs berth9. bcs berth10. bcs
berthI hope and pray to the man up stairs that utah will win what a
great way to send our seniors out, KING LOUIE thank you for being such a stud
love your commercial and GO UTES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!UTAH 30 byU 21
Get ready for another heartbreaker, you overconfident uties.
heartbreakers are right, we all know who expected to win and who should have won
As Cougar fans we should give our respect to the Utes.....they do really have a
great football team and deserve the hype they have been receiving all year
long....but....But let's hear it for all the rags that have been
thrown at the Cougars by the ute fans that think we'll just crash and
burn.....and that could have happened after TCU, but it didn't.....the Cougars
picked themselves up after that HARD smackdown and have slowly made their way
back to respectability. It hasn't been pretty the last few weeks...but they have
won....also, their three toughest conference have been on the road....AFA, TCU
and now Utah....Makes you wonder how the schedule meister worked all that
out...doesn't seem fair does it???But will the Boys be focused on
Saturday....oh yeah...and does this game have meaning for more than just
wrecking Utah's season....oh yeah....but do you think they'll put out of their
thoughts all the reckless and absurb things Utah fans have or will
say....Nope....and what about all the trash the utes will talk about our Quest
for Perfection...I can only imagine what They will say about that....It ain't over yet utes....and will Brigham's Academy Wreck someone's
season.....Oh yes they will!!!!!!
The man upstairs? I don't understand, does the guy in the apartment above yours
play on the team or does he have some control over the game?If not, you
are sounding just like the BYU fans you Newties like to make fun of... I don't
think divine intervention is the answer to this rivalry.
remember what happened last time utah was ranked top 10 vs byu in 04UTAH 52 byU 21
