    "In the years to come I can easily see the U rising to the TOP 3 of the Pac 12 year in and year out."

    And you call BYU fans delusional.

    The Utes will be doing well if they can finish in the top three of the PAC 12 once every three or four years. More often than not the Utes will be fighting to finish in the upper half of the conference.

    The U has had a good year all in all. Having an injured started QB and having to adjust to that has been tough but even with that wins over BYU, Arizona, UCLA and most likely Wash St. as well as a near miss against USC on the road is really quite impressive. In the years to come I can easily see the U rising to the TOP 3 of the Pac 12 year in and year out. Great job Kyle.

    You're right, if I'm a player, San Antonio and San Diego would be great places to bowl.

    As for the Sun Bowl? I lived in El Paso for three years. It may be the worst city to visit or live in America. I'd rather be bowling in Albuquerque than El Paso. If that's where the Utes end up, watch Border Wars on Nat Geo Channel before you go. And don't plan on your car being in the U.S. when you wake up in the morning. They do have great Mexican Food though.

    WHAT AN IGNORANT comment to make. Last year El Paso was ranked #1 safest city in the country. Yea what else should I expect from some one called COUGFAN. I guess every city should be like "God's city" Provo UT with "God's University" or is that Frisco TX. Border Wars?? Really? I bet you also "Keep up with the Kardashians". The Sun Bowl is one of the oldest bowls. I have lived both in El Paso TX and South Jordan UT, My car got broken into in SoJo and not once in EL Paso.

    "Sure beats that ????"

    Dallas?

    Weren't you the one beating your gums about great road trip sites?

    Dallas > El Paso

    That's not even debateable.

    Truth,

    I'm impressed that you were able to take time away from polishing your Heaps Heisman and trying to score BYU BCS championship tickets to respond to the article.

    Considering that's all we heard during the offseason, I think it's appropriate that BYU gets to go to such a major bowl.

    I don't mind if the Utes play in Texas (I'll be there after all) but I don't think i could handle it if they played my Longhorns!! That would be just too much for me. I might have a heart attack!

    cjf,

    Why does it matter what the fans do? We can talk about the future all we want, but the players need to focus on the next game.

    Personally, I would rather that Ute fans just worry about the next game.

    TJ is right.

    Before the Sun bowl there is Washington State.

    Before the Alamo bowl there is Colorado.

    Go Utes!

    It would be fun to watch U in the Las Vegas bowl once again for old times sake. Would love to see the Utes against the Horned Frogs one more time.

    That Alamo Bowl would be great. San Antonio is a fantastic sports town for special events. Was there in 1998 with the Utes in the Final Four and would love to visit the river walk and the Alamo again.

    San Deigo would be great too.

    Sun Bowl would be a great accomplishment this year too given the way things started out in conference.

    "Where is the Sun Bowl...isn't that Texas El Paso stadium...?"

    (1/2)TRUTH:

    Yes, that 50,000 seat venue on the UTEP campus is known as the Sun Bowl.

    You cougies must be all excited to play another C-USA team, this time in the helicopter bowl at SMU's place (capacity 32,000).

    Lifelong Ute is not a Ute fan. She is just a pot stirer.

    Mark it down!

    I thought the Utes were BCS bound...not Sun Bowl bound? Where is the Sun Bowl...isn't that Texas El Paso stadium...?

    Nice Utes, you are really living now...

    Have fun in the Sun, but remember, dont drink the water!!

    Ken, as good as that scenario is for the Utes, there is no way on this earth that Arizona will beat Arizona State this Saturday, especially with the game in Tempe.

    Or we could all wait until the regular season is over and see where they really go. It never ceases to amaze me how many people make a living off of speculating on sports. They are usually wrong. Wherever they go, I wish the Utes success in their bowl game.

    Although Lifeong Ute's scenario is not a "very likely scenario" I would say it's at least a "decent possibility." A few weeks ago even Coach Whit admitted the conference title game was out of reach. The unthinkable has now happened in Arizon State losing 2 games in a row that looked weeks ago like gimmes.

    Just 1 more and things will get very interesting!

    Sure beats that ???? whatever bowl BYU has lined up. Sorry, I couldn't remember the name of that bowl game. I should run for president.

    give it a rest Chris B/lifelong. we all know you aren't a real Ute fan....

    As far as the articles go, I am anxious to see where utah ends up obviously, but I want us to finish the year strong. wazzu is not teh pushover of yesteryear. It will take a total team effort to top them on the road.
