Sad performance

Sloppy sloppy sloppy...Utes looked terrible...hope they pull it together against Oregon (who also are pretty bad). Learn to play with intensity for 4 quarters, learn to play on the road, or learn to deal with an 8-4 season pansies.


Utah looked bad tonight. They will be lucky to take 4th in conference.

Why scheduly patsy oponents if you are going to let them walk over you?

If they are doing this to go undefeated again, it's just not worth it.

I wasn't impressed

with Cain or the Ute offense. The Asiata formation needs to go. The option needs to go. Just play straight up smash mouth football. A good running game combined with a good passing game would easily beat SJS, but too much trying to be creative overshadowed and ultimately confused Cain. KISS: keep it simple stupid comes to mind for how the Utes should play against the ducks. Come on we want an undefeated Ute team playing BYU so that BYU can ultimately beat the snot out of them on their way to a BCS busting, possible National Championship game.


It wasn't that bad. They dominated the game, they just couldn't finish. There were flashes of what they can do, they just keep shooting themselves in the foot with penalties and turnovers. The potential is there, just need to avoid mistakes.


hopefully Cain will be abel to beat Oregon. it's a tough row to hoe though. Jordan Wyn may be called upon to take over though.


Cain will get better. His feet might be his best quality. A few more games under his belt and look out MWC!


this team is a bunch of soft posers. . .Their looking straight at a "drilling" by a weak duck team. 7-5 is their hopes

Ute Man

Utes need that swagger! They need to come out knowing that no team belongs on the same field with them!
It's called respect for other teams, but no fear!
They had that swagger last year, we need it again this year!


Re: loose moose...

You certainly run your mouth a lot. 7-5? Pony up lil' buddy.


c'mon people. terrance cain second game in a re building season, that is pretty impressive. GO UTES!


This was a sloppy horrible game. We tried all we could to give this game away. I thought we had worked on taking care of the ball since we embarrassed ourselves against utah state. Man we need to get it together offensively and defensively. Yes the run was locked down impressively, but our DBs held up like paper mache in the rain. They killed us in the air. YBU is going to have a hey day in our backfield if we can't get that figured out. We can be the same awesome team as last season if we can get those few questions answered, oh and the ever creative play calling. Hey don't worry OR we will probably run the same stupid play about 15 times in a row even if it didn't work the first 14 times. With two sad outings we are going to drop out of the polls if we can't take OR to town and show everyone who we really are. GO UTES!!!

cant wait until

next year when Joseph Smith joins the program... I can see the article in November 2010

"Joseph Smith and Cain combine to beat the Cougars"

RE:cant wait until

Cain you say, he will be transfering sometime in june. Probably to Nevada.

Moose on the loose


was not Able. He looked like a juco in over his head. Did you see the score when USC played a freshman against SJSU. You guys are in real trouble. Put Wynn inn!

Crazy comments..

by uneducated fans. Bad play calling? A couple of times, yeah. Not often though. Utah had 500 yards of total offense, basically split 50/50 between run and pass. That is pretty good. Execution is more important than play calling. Forth and one on the goal line - PERFECT play call, poor execution.

Cain missed a couple of throws, yeah, but overall he played a really good game. If you seriously think he didn’t you don’t know anything about football and shouldn’t be posting on here.

What were the problems: 1) fumbles, 2) terrible kicking game, 3) sub-par ball skills by corners (coverage was usually good), 4) poor protection by OL at times. All things that can be fixed, but Utah still won by 10.

Lot’s of mistakes, but not many by Cain. They will definitely need to play better to win next week.


No one has mentioned that he's seems--ummm--quite quick on his feet.
