A Possible SMU game?Yes! this will be interesting without a true
field leader like Jim McMahon!Either way, you Cougs are left with
the Conference USA scraps.Gotta love that Independence thing.Hang in there Band of Lil Brothers!
Tulsa or SMU?LOLIf Whittingham can pull off a big upset
like we already did against Alabama, this time against Oregon, who will be
Utah's Rose Bowl possible opponents?ASU is choking at a very bad
time.And I'm loving it.Utah - Oregon Inaugural Pac 12
Title GameMark it Down!!
Go back to the Ute Boards. Utah will end up in the Las Vegas Bowl and will get
destroyed by Boise State again.
Chris B:Just focus on Washington State. They're the only team that
matters right now. We don't control our own destiny, so cool it with the
"Rose Bowl" talk. You sound like those football-irrelevant, frantic
and emotional Indy-WACers who'd been pounding their chests about Heismans and
NCs prior to the start of the season. They're all looking pretty stupid right
about now. If ASU wins one more game, you will be too. Mark THAT down.
Naval Vet,What needs to be "cooled" is those fans who
believe you impact what happens on the field. "Focus on
Washington State"Umm...hate to tell you Navy, but it doesnt'
matter how much I focus or don't focus on Washington State, it won't impact a
thing.Likewise, it doesn't matter how much you focus on Washington
State - nothing will change.I maintain:ASU is choking
bad.We're peaking at a good time.Oregon - Utah, First ever pac
12 championship!Mark it Down!
Personally, I love the stand-up comedy of Chris B.
Or correct me if I'm wrong Naval Vet.Perhaps you ARE on the team and
I gave you the impression that I'm on the team also. If so - I'm not. Sorry for
the confusion. If you are - please YES, just focus on Washington
State. Sorry to have distracted you by stating my belief that we(sorry, I mean
you) will be playing Oregon for the title.LOL
That could be a better game than anticipated. SMU is no slouch, they beat TCU.
Their biggest problem is inconsistency. Tulsa is even better. BYU could have
their hands full, especially if Riley can't make it back before the bowl game.
It'll be interesting to see if Heaps' stay on the bench really has made him a
better QB, or if it just appeared that way because their opponent was so
terrible. I guess we'll see on saturday.
What does it say about Ute fans where 4 out of the first 5 comments are made by
Ute trolls, on a BYU roundup article, including a very entertaining exchange
between two of them?That is some good comedy!
Once again...chris B on every BYU article. Does this guy have a job?
Giant Fan:Took the words right out of my mouth.A house
divided against itself cannot stand:Mark THAT down.
I think I'd watch a Ute - Duck game. I've really been trying to become a better
bigger man, and I really DO respect coach Whit and his team, but guys like Chris
B make it too easy to almost hope the Utes DO get to play the mighty Ducks. And after that beat down, they could maybe qualify for the Vegas Bowl.
And play Boise or TCU again. Of course, Washington State could maul
them first. Where would they go then? New Mexico bowl? That would be poetic.
Maybe BYU's partner in sports, ESPN, could arrange some horse
trading and Utah could end up in Dallas. Man I'd like the men in blue to get
another shot at Utah. Is there maybe a 10 step program for what I
Chris B is either a DN employee who knows when every BYU article is going to be
posted or he spends his entire day in his mom's basement constantly hitting the
"refresh" button until a new BYU article pops up on the DN website.Either way, he's so totally obsessed with all things BYU that he can't
even abide the gentle chiding of one of his own.
Three Comments Please:Those who worry about the 8:15 PM Start and
how cold it might be: "30's and a chance of snow." YOU are NOT true
football fans! GO BEARS, PACKERS, PATRIOTS, AND BILLS! Where weather does not
matter! Football does. Or Should I say go WILDCATS, BADGERS, WOLVERINES,
etc....Chris B: A Huntsman Clone: Another person with nothing to do
all the time except to seem important and relevant! Last but not
least: GO LSU and OSU the only two teams who appear relevant at this
@ chubbuckidahocougfan | 1:49 p.m. Nov. 15, 2011 Chubbuck, Idaho Your version of our Chris B? Duckhunter.
Tulsa is one exciting foe. Don't get me started on SMU. Talk about a talented
group. Didn't SMU beat TCU? In any case, it will be exciting to watch the
cougars take on an action packed, hyped up mediocre (at best) opponent. Hold on a moment. Can you hear me out for a second? It's hard to be
humble when the teams we might be playing in our minor league bowl are Georgia
Tech, Virginia Tech or Boise State. It's hard to be humble when Utah is actually
playing for something. Makes for good story lines, drama, etc. 8-4 is not bad
considering the injuries, turnovers, etc. 54-10.
While a BYU fanChris B keep it up you are the number 1 read on the comment
boardMark it downwe all scan to see if you comment love it
Tulsa and SMU...Powerhouses! lololol
Was hoping for rematch with UTEP.
1980 Miracle Bowl rematch, bring it on!
Hopefully the bowl opponent will be ranked in the top 25, because BYU won't be
even if its wins the next two games, thanks to scheduling a majority of teams
from the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) and losing to two teams from
(Utah and Texas) from a BCS conference and TCU (who accepted an invitation to a
BCS conference. BYU went to independent so it could be invited into a BCS
conference and be invited to a BCS bowl and it turns out the scheduling went to
teams primarily from Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). BYU will
experience that repetition in scheduling for the next few years. BYU should have
known it would be tough to schedule teams from a BCS conference, so that excuse
doesn't seem logical for a soft schedule. Sports revenue from football will
decrease, cougar club memberships will drop, and game attendance will drop. Look
at stadium ticket sales this year if one wants proof even though BYU is on ESPN
I was hoping for Navy.
Chris B | 12:04 p.m. Nov. 15, 2011 Salt Lake City, UT Tulsa or
SMU?LOLIf Whittingham can pull off a big upset like we
already did against Alabama, this time against Oregon, who will be Utah's Rose
Bowl possible opponents?ASU is choking at a very bad time.And I'm loving it.Utah - Oregon Inaugural Pac 12 Title GameMark it Down!! Utah to the Rose Bowl? Bahahahahahaha thats a
good laugh! you wont even see the pac 12 title game and even if some how Utah is
lucky enough to get into the the title game, do you honestly think they can
compete with Oregon? ASU is still very much in the drivers seat and Utah will
have its hands full against Washington State. You are quite a delusional one
Chris B but hey thanks for the good laugh!
"Utah - Oregon Inaugural Pac 12 Title Game - Mark it Down!!"Oh okay, "I'll Mark It Down."Just like I marked it down
when Ute fans all over the place were saying they would win the PAC-12 outright
this year. Just like when they said they would go undefeated and win the
National Championship and Jordan Wynn would get some votes for the Heisman
Trophy.The current standings in the PAC-12 South has both ASU and
UCLA one game ahead of Utah. USC leads the PAC-12 South, but as I understand it,
they can't play in the PAC-12 title game or in a bowl game since they're on
probation. If Utah wins both of their last two games, then UCLA
would have to lose one of their last two, which would tie them with Utah, giving
the Utes the tie break.However, since ASU has the tie break against
Utah, the Sun Devils would have to lose both of their last two games in order
for Utah to win the PAC-12 South.And even if all these scenarios
happened, don't assume Oregon is going to look past Utah like Alabama did.
Chris B. You get under BYU skin better than any poster I've ever seen, so you
are tops in my book and so much wittier than Duckhunter. And you are often
uncannily correct in your predictions. I also agree that no player prints out
these posts and takes them out to the field, so for a fan to say, "we're
going all the way this year," isn't exactly going to determine the outcome
of a season. If you're wrong, big deal? You aimed for the stars and fell a
little short. So what?
