Mendenhall has no strategy? Yes, I guess that's why after his 1st year as HC
inheriting a broken team from Crowton that needed a major overhaul he has won
11, 11, 10, has two bowl wins, and now is 2-0 with a win over #3 OU on the road.
No strategy? Next time lil' fella think before u post. Or better yet, leave the
posting to people who know what they're talking about, ok?
You're always good for a laugh!!!
You are absolutely right. Utah continues to schedule games in accordance with a
long standing strategy implemented when Urban Myer was with us. The Utes will
continue employ that strategy.Mendenhall has no strategy. The first
time he scheduled N. Iowa was to give his team a psyc lesson that they really
can score after the Crowton years. It worked. Problem is, he stayed with that
approach until this year when he decided to do what he sees Utah and TCU doing
year after year. Mendenhall threw the dice and hit the jackpot with Oklahoma.
Who knows what he is going to do next year?? No strategy, no repeatable
process, poor coaching. That's our Bronco.
BYU finally beats a nationally ranked team and the zoobies begin their typical
smack talk. That strange combination of ignorance and arrogance is oozing from
the bubble once again.Who owns the longest winning streak in nation?
Who owns the longest bowl winning streak in the nation? Who is regarded as the
top non-BCS program in the nation? Who owns a decisive edge in head-to-head
competition? Who has won two BCS bowl games? Who didn't win an embarrassing NC
game by beating the 6th place team from the Big 10, causing the creation of the
BCS?The answer would be the true big brother, the University of Utah
Utes.Congrats on your win against Oklahoma, it was great for your
program and for the conference but why the smack talk? Tulane and San Jose
State are both weak opponents.Good luck tomorrow. Go Utes, Go
I realize you probably go to UVSC. Because if you went to the y, you would
realize that byu plays Tulane!!! Last I checked San Jose is a tougher opponent
that Tulane. I guess Northern Iowa's schedule was full.
Can you really be the "underdog" when playing Utah State and San Jose,
especially with an '08 #2 national ranking---or are you already easing the
disappointment of a loss to BYU, by making the "underdog" statement.
>>>Could we play any worse teams? I am embarrased for the Ute nation. Why? This is consistent with teams considered to be among the best in the
country.And yes, there are a lot of worse teams that could be
played.Florida played Charleston Southern--a team USU would dominate
easily--last week.Texas played Louisiana-Monroe last week and plays
Central Florida in November, both teams comparable to USU.USC played
SJSU last weekOklahoma is hosting Idaho State this week.Alabama has Florida International this week and North Texas next week.Penn State played Acron last week and has Eastern Illinois in a few
weeks.Iowa escaped defeat by Northern Iowa (which is a much better
team than some believe) by blocking 2 field goal attempts in the final 7 seconds
preserving a 17-16 win.Virginia wasn't as lucky as Iowa, losing to
William & Mary. The ACC is a combined 4-2 against I-FCS teams and 0-4 against
I-FBS teams.No, there is enough "embarrassment" to go around.
Channel 400 on comcast - 8:30 pmGo Utes!
Re: be afraid yoots...I'll say to you what I said to the tough guys
making predictions before the USU game last week... put your money where your
mouth is lil' fella.

The little brother in the state is playing Tulane and not SJSU.

although that isn't saying much. Of course, BYU earned a pass with last week's
Wow, gotta love Cougar fans. Beat your first top-5 team since 1990 and suddenly
your schedule is always soooo much stronger the Utah's. Last time I
checked, you guys played 3 FCS teams from 2005-08. Utah played one FCS team in
that span. BYU also played the only winless 1-A team last fall. Based on those
numbers, I'd say tough schedules are not BYU's strong point. Point
is you probably should not be blasting Utah for playing Utah State and San Jose
State. Especially when you are also playing Utah State later in the season and
taking on a Tulane team that is much much worse than San Jose State is.
The meltdown begins(lolololololololol)
Just a reminder that BYU opened with Northern Iowa last year. Please no more
scheduling smack. It's ridiculous. My grandmother would put up more of a fight
than Tulane would.Northern Iowa. Enough said.
another big game this week end for the Utes. GO Little Brother!
How many bowl losses like the one to Arizona will it take for BYU to match
Utah's 8 straight. My guess is about 12 but only if BYU freaks out every time
they loose and try to play it of cool.
How many more of these USU and San Jose State type games will we have to play to
equal the game BYU had against OU? Or I guess there won't be any equal to that
No, I didn't go to BYU. I went to yootah and became so disgusted with it that I
later became a BYU fan and now root against the yoots.
Tough game.......was Dixie College schedule full?
What Comcast channel will the game be on. Go Utes.
Heck man, some of you BYU boys can't even spell UTES. How did get into college?
Well, maybe you never been to BYU?
The Utes will come into this game very focussed and come away with a win. I look
for Misi and Sly to have big games; furthermore, Asiata will break 100 yards
again and Cain will grow in his confidence.
I hope the Utes are afraid of this game going into it so they prepare well
(which fear will subside after they're 14-21 points up at the half). But let's
be honest with ourselves, this game shouldn't even be close. The mantra against
mediocre talent is to focus on yourself because the Ute players are not going to
bust their butts getting ready for a toothless SJSU. BYU has the same problem
this week against an awful Tulane team. They try to be complimentary about
their opponents, but this is a week off for both programs and it would take an
astronomical meltdown for either team to lose. Just a thought.
Yewets beat the spread in this scrimmage by 10. Schedule starting to look a
San Jose St. is weak and the Utes are a 14.0 favorite. They should do better
than that with a better team and a better coach. Beat SJS and then beat the
spread. Whit will out wit them as he did 'Bama.
San Jose St beat USU 30-7 last year. U guys beat Doormat U by only 35-17 this
year. Now that San Jose has played USC u guys are going to feel like a slow
motion cakewalk to them. San Jose St by 3.
Just another scrimmage for the Utes. Too bad Oregon is damaged goods. It would
have been fun to see them knock down a full strength PAC-10 team. Even after
getting drubbed by BYU in Las Vegas, Oregon Coach (and now AD) Belotti wouldn't
give the MWC any credit. Show 'em Utes.
How are we the underdogs? We're 11 and a half point favorites. Wake up!
Stay hungry, Stay humble, Stay being the underdogs and kick it in the guts!! GO
