I will say it again, 2 years no moe bcs, independents and litigation will be the
end. Money contracts by networks etc will lock the big bucks in someone else not
the bcs.Utes will be just ok, too many unknowns on their team and
the others. Fun to predict but hard make happen when we aren't playing. Let the
players do their thing and we enjoy their efforts.
I sit hoping for the best....but......how healthy is Wynn really? Our defense
has many new people in the secondary and all new running backs? I say we speak
less and cheer loud for the Runnin' Utes when the season gets underway! Go
Let's not speculate fellow Ute fans. We are a humble program that has great
potential and made it to the big time. Please no outlandish predictions!!!! We
are not BYU, or their fans, who are simply ridiculous and chest thump 24/7. Let
us hope for the best. Go Utes!
Tomahawk Red | 5:30 p.m. Aug. 2, 2011 North Salt Lake, UT I
predict a loss at Arizona, and the other two losses somewhere in the Pitt, Cal,
OSU stretch. 9-3 final record. ===So in reality, you are
predicting a 7-5, 6-6 (realistic, rather than "probable") record for
the Utes this year?I can see that as a best case scenario, and
nothing to hang their heads at considering the schedule...I can also
see where they might not be bowl eligible.How's bout we wait and see
what happens on the field?

Too funny!More comments about Luck's beard than Jordan Wynn. LOL!
@mountainman...You mean the BYU game is the only one that's gonna be
televised this season?I must've gotten bad information from the utes
official schedule I guess.
It's like asking Bachman to comment on Obama's job performance.As a
matter of facts, I'd rather hearing Bachman's comments on Obama than Dr Fowl's
comments on Utes.
What a shame a PAC12 potential champion will receive almost no TV coverage,
except the one game against BYU!

Wow, and I thought some of the fans on the BYU side were delusional. How can anyone make an accurate prediction as to how Utah will do in the
PAC-12?Outside of Cal, UCLA, and Oregon St, Utah has yet to beat a member
of the PAC-12 since Whittingham arrived. This will be a whole new world
for Utah and its fans, just be ready for some bumpy roads ahead. The PAC-12 is
one of the most exciting and competitive leagues in the country. A
7-5 record going into the Bowl season would be a great first season. Give it
2-3 years before the coaching staff, and athletes become acclimated and begin to
contend for a conference Championships. Luckily you are down in the weaker
South Conference and don't have to face my Ducks or Stanford next season, you
would be in for a very rude welcoming to the PAC.Where Utah will
stand this December is a complete mystery, and any predictions are simply
wishful guesses or biased trash talk.
I wish we had Todd Christensen commenting on the Utes or his son or Paul James.
Well if you really want a laugh tune in to 1320 a.m. right now and you will get
to hear steve tate analyzing BYU. Not a bit of bias in that homer's breakdown.
Chris, I appreciate your optimism, but I just don't have the evidence to predict
10-2 this year. I expect 8-4 first year out of the gate. Too many unknown
items between our own team, and the huge step up in schedule.I
expect the offense to struggle early, defense will keep us in games, then the
offense to gain momemtum as the year goes along.I'll take 8-4 any
day of the week.
"No surprise we're favored to play in the Pac 12 championship game"Chris BUmm.. Maybe you should sit down for this. On
PAC-12 Media day, Utah was actually picked to finish 3rd in the South Division
and 7th overall in the PAC-12.
Favored by whom? Dream on
At worst I see a 9-3 record this year, but 10-2 is my bet. We came at a good
time with USC still reeling and not playing oregon and stanford.No
surprise we're favored to play in the Pac 12 championship game.Can't
wait for the season!
Didn't Blaine Fowler work for the Mountain? Didn't he play for BYU? Maybe we
could ask President Obama to show me how to balance my checkbook? Maybe we could
ask Hugh Hefner to teach us about the BYU honor code. So ridiculous.
Maybe the dnews should have Max hall give his unbiased analysis.
NO! How did that just happen!?! Talk about an unbiased analyst, next you
should have Sharif Shaw analyze the Cougars.
