CougFaninTX - which two or three teams (good teams) do you think the Y will beat
on the road this year to get to 10-2 or 11-1. I'm sure you will say Utah
but curious if you really think you will beat BSU, GA Tech, or ND. And,
don't be so sure about going undefeated at home ...
I hate to see trolls from either side on here or the trib. I am pledging her
and now not to comment off topic or take shots at BYU this year. That being
said, it seems like BYU has quite a solid line up, but it is shallow. In many
ways Utah is in the same boat - as mentioned above.
Watch for another game changer: Cody Hoffman
CougFaninTX: He was just referring to injured TEs, not all of them. So Mathews
was left out of the discussion.
@Blue Husky.No Utah does not play USC and BYU back to back. BYU Sept 15,
USC Oct 4.
@Patriot - doesn't Utah play USC and BYU back to back? Yikes! Don't
they play Washington (who they've never beaten) in Seattle? Yikes! How
about UCLA in the Rose Bowl? Yikes! Not sure if Utah has ever played UCLA in the
Rose Bowl, but BYU knows how tough it is to win there. And luckily, Utah does
not play Oregon and Stanford this year. So maybe only 4 or 5 losses this
year.I think Utah, like last year, will have plenty of Yikes! this
year. But that's OK. They're in the PAC12. It's an honor to get
beaten by USC and their new PAC12 brothers.BYU could lose 4 games
this year. I don't think the Utah game will be one of them.
CougFaninTXDon't encourage Mildred or it will never stop.
There is no "independant conference", so we won't be finishing
ahead of anyone.Hopefully, the Cougs will have a better season than
a lot of teams.
Utah has just as many questions as BYU. They also have an injury prone QB, they
also have a bunch of new guys to break in on the O-line. They do have one good
running back who is 5'8 but if he gets injured there is no one behind him.
The utes can expect 6,7, or 8 wins this year with their schedule.
I appreciate the banter between Ute fans and BYU fans as much as the next guy,
but the comments here border on ridiculous.5 wins? Come on, have
some intelligence. If the Cougs aren't bowl eligible I will not post a
single comment for the next year.Win the independent conference? If
we finish ahead of Notre Dame, that's not such a bad accomplishment. And
Navy will be much improved. Maybe you should focus on how the Y is going to do
against its 3 PAC12 opponents. If we win all three (a strong possibility), can
I crown us the PAC12 champion?Shots at the Freshmen O-Lineman?
Ryker may have started last year if it weren't for an injury and an already
solid O-Line. Redshirting him and bringing him back with an extra year of
eligibility was a smart decision. Ryker could be the best of the bunch, and is
likely a four year starter. I wonder why he didn't commit to Utah?I'm surprised the article didn't mention Mathews among the
TE's. Cougars shoud be at least 10-2. With a little luck, 11-1
thanks "utah" fans....your comments are ridiculous. stay with your team
and hopefully they'll be able to field a team when the smoke clears.
Let's see holes in the O line to fill with a freshman no less, little
experience at RB, and no experience behind a injury prone QB sounds like a
proscription for a high risk or bad season. Good Luck with an undefeated season
patriot,Double yikes!! Notre Dame, then G.Tech will be tough.
We're going to be so good this year.I think we will win the
Independant Conference for sure.

with pads again, hearing them popping, stuff like that," said NelsonWait til the Y plays Utah and Boise back to back and then see how
'fun' it is. Yikes!!! 2012 looks to be a 5 win season for Bronco
