Jim Fassel? I'm sure he won't mind becoming an OC for a while.

I would really like that but I think that he is in love with the pro game and there might be too much ego clash to make it work. But, man, the guy can design an offense!!


Even with returning players, it's tough to lose coaches.

I do like the Brandon Doman thing. Good mind. It would be interesting to see how many Cougar fans would hate him as soon as he left BYU.

We all know their feelings about Whit.

re: BYU

"BYU 1-20 vs ranked teams in last 9 seasons"

And BYU still has more Top 25 finishes than Utah in those 9 seasons.


48-24 12-0 BCS
10-17 final minute
31-33 final second
41-34 overtime
52-21 12-0 BCS

How sweet it is to be a Ute!


Predictions for 2009:

USU 49, UofU 3

USU 51, BYU 6

I don't even know if they play each other. Either way, GO AGS.

Must be Y fans

who want Doman to come here. He is an awful coach and really doesn't know what he is doing.

Utah will be fine. Kyle has a program going

Re: San Diego Ute fan

you commented that the offense ran best when BJ was running the show on his own. I think you're missing one critical point on that. The offense really only ran best when the other teams were playing the Prevent defense in the last 2 minutes of the game. When the DB's lay off the LOS 15 yds and leave the WR's wide open for short passes it's pretty easy to look like a genius, BJ's grandma could have made those throws.

"Please explain how Utah has "dominated" most of the last 50 years.

Your comment implies that BYU has dominated the last 50 years. You people talk like BYU is Notre Dame, Penn State, Alabama, etc. Such arrogant, mindless fools.

Yes, BYU has done those things thing you noted in your post but is has been over the last quarter century. That does not equate to domination it denotes nothing more that a flash in the pan.

Have fun in LV. The real money will be coming courtesy of the University of Utah.

"who want Doman to come here. He is an awful coach and really doesn't know what he is doing."

Agreed. Doman coached the interception king...what's his name.

Van Orden

Hire Van Orden from Timpview. He's an offensive genius.


What a bunch of insecure "precious" ones, worrying about how the University baseball cap they wear will affect their own self-esteem.

Re: deluded Ute

You really should get your facts straight...

While it's true that Utah hasn't dominated the last 50 years, you claim that Utah disappeared after 1964.. The truth is that between 1964 and 1972, Utah won 5 out of 7 meetings.

They only won 2 games between 1972 and 1992, and that's a pretty impressive run by BYU.. Just don't try to imply something that's not true by extending it almost a decade longer than the truth.

In reality, the Utes are 23-27 in the last 50 years. It also will take a few years before we can improve that record, because the first 7 games in that 50 year series were Ute victories.

However, what matters is this:

3-2 in the last 5 years
5-5 in the last 10 years
9-6 in the last 15 years

and most importantly.. 12-0 this year.

RE: Queen Louie

Don't you have anything new to say? I swear I read this on an earlier Ute thread.

Yes we've heard it before Bama is going to roll all over us because our defense and offense sucks... BLAH BLAH BLAH.

Sucks to be BYU allowing our weak O and D to smack them around 48-24... yea it was a close game at the end of 3rd but unfortunately for BYU football is played in 4 Qtrs.

"This won't be like playing PITT!"

We know already, it's even going to be tougher then the 6-5 84 MI team. Actually UofA is even better then 84-MI.

#4 Bama or 7-5 UofA... you can have the Vegas bowl.

RE: Common Sense

The 2nd Tier MWC is 6-1 against the mighty PAC-10. Also how about that power house WY program beating Tenn.

Yes Utah, TCU, BYU, BSU are 2nd Tier to FL, OK, OH, Bama, USC and the likes but not to teams like ND, Oregon, Old Miss, FL Sate, VTech, PITT, BC, etc.

So come off your high horse and play a Home-and-Away series with the 2nd Tier Utah. Why won't OK and FL play on the Smurf field in Boise?


Kansas State is not a step up! What is happening in Whitville. Word is, he's gone too.

Can't be happier

I'm one ute fan who thought a lot of our offensive problems were because of Ludwig. I think next year will be tough for us, losing both coordinators, but in the long run, I'm glad he's gone.

We'll definitely miss Anderson though.

Utah Fan

Utah's defense is still open.

Good News

This is good news, now just go out and hire a good OC - it will bring in more recruits if you do!
