The funniest thing is that two of those 3 out of conferences games are for sure utah losses. I am going to enjoy watching one of them in LES in September.

Duckhunter,

I guessing your not a gambler. With numbers like

2 of 3
6 of 9

the odds are against you little ducky.

Sidenote: Bleacher report also has a list (today) of the cockiest teams...want to guess who's on it? LOL

I've been known to wager wedgie and I'd be happy to make one with you except you have proven yourself to be completely incapable of keeping your word. We all remember your promise to stay off of BYU articles if BYU beat SDSU and that was a complete lie. So knowing that I really don't have any faith at all in you paying your debt once utah loses to BYU in September.

I'm certainly willing to make a good natured wager with Mormon Ute or some other trustworthy and classy Ute Fan though.

Actually hedge, it's 3 of the last 5, and 26 of the last 39.

Besides, the Cougars will have Heaps. Who have U got?

Fortunately for the Utes, they start the season with a cupcake, or the Utes would have finished September winless.

Hey hedgie, did you notice who was on the "15 Teams That Will Drop Off Due to Losing Marquee Players" report? Didn't think so.

And what's this #49 out of 50 top Wildest Fanbase report? Disappointing and pathetic at the same time.

For a good analysis of BYU just dig a little deeper, hedgie. Here's a fine quote for you...

"BYU has a QB who will garner nation(al) attention behind a dominant offensive line that can both run and pass block very well... I dont think that 40 pts per game is out of the question, even with their challenging schedule."

By the way, Collie's personal remark years ago is hardly something to rank a team on cockiness. Pretty lame and definitely old news.

Try something a little more relevant and current.

Duckhunter, "for sure" loss at Pitt? Utah has never lost to a current Big East team, and has beat both times they have met the past several years. True, the Panthers may be favored with home field, but they are notorious chokers who have some serious turmoil at coach. And BYU a "for sure" loss? Utah has won 5 of 8 vs the Cougs. Yes, it's possible the Utes might lose those games (might), but "for sure"?...that's not based on reality.

I noticed that the Top 12 "cockiest" teams had one thing in common,

they've all won a NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP!

Maybe someday the U will have something to be "cocky" about.

Well then MiP would you care to take the wager I wouldn't trust wedgie to pay up on? I'm very confident about it. I'm also confident that utah will be at best a .500 team this coming season and may not even be that.

Bleacher report is not a good source to site, why in the world is the desnews citing a Bleacher Report article?

I'll agree that the Utes schedule isn't the most difficult in the conference, they lucked out by not having to play Oregon or Stanford, but look at who Bleacherreport puts as the toughest schedule.

They have Arizona with the hardest schedule. Arizona's non-conf schedule: Northern Arizona, Oklahahoma State, and Louisiana-Lafayette. Colorado's schedule is definitely more difficult.

Ute fans, ignore Duckhunter. I think he is a little jealous we didn't get invited to the Pac-12. I'm hoping that rivalry game next year in provo is a good one, because we don't really have any other good teams coming to LES next year.

That is nice to hear! And for the most part we do ignore Duckhunter.

No all you never do that. To the contrary you respond to pretty much every post I make.

But I see not one ute "fan" will take my bet? That tells me you know I am right or else you are worried I might be. Either way your failure to accept tells me all I need to know about your confidence in utahs upcoming season.
