@ uteBustersFunny how you southies have to come on Ute blogs to try
to prove your worth!Go Utes!!
I really respect Gary Anderson, I think he is a great coach. That being said, I
am not worried about tonight's game. Utah should handle USU easily. Now,
if GA was the byU head coach, I would be worried. Unlike Bronco, GA can coach
and get the most out of his players, and actually get some drafted into the
NFL.Go Utes!! Go Wildcats!! Go Aggies (after tonight)!!
sportsfanforlifeBy definition, to be a bottom-dwelling team, you
have to finish in the bottom half of the conference.BYU has finished
in the bottom half of the conference exactly ONCE in the last 40 years, in 2002,
during the Crowton era. During the Bronco era, BYU has never finished worse than
3rd in the conference. Utah on the other hand has been a conference
bottom dweller TEN times in the last 40 years. During the Kyle era, Utah
finished 4th in the MWC in 2005 and 8th in the PAC in 2011.----------SCCougarIn 2009, BYU finished the season
ranked #12 in both polls.What's funny is how Utah fans beat
their chests about playing and beating ranked teams, then pretend that rankings
are unimportant every time BYU finishes in the Top 25, like last season, when
BYU finished in the Top 25 for the EIGHTEENTH time, while Utah, as usual,
Sorry, Bill Riley, but you're a short timer whern it comes to Aggie
Football coaching history.Here's how it goes:A) Lose a
majority of the games, say 75% or so, and you lose your job after about 4 years,
courtesy of demands from the alumni.B) Win, in Logan of all places, say
75% of the time, maybe only 60%, and some big-name national program will hire
you away for possessing exceptional coaching talent.C) Be mediocre,
winning an in-state game every 3 - 5 or so years, keeping around a 50% winning
percentage, and go to a bowl perhaps once a decade, and you'll have a job
in Logan for as long as you live.So none of these scenarios portend
any new or rekindled rivalries because one can't keep employed long enough
to have it develop.I admire your wishfull thinking, though.
@ Chris BWhy didn't you include your prediction that Washington
State was going to beat BYU? You're irrelevant, man, along with your
opinions about the PAC 10.2, and are getting more so every post. Stick to hype
and leave out scores and you'll look better, perhaps. Than again, perhpas
Uteology: Could be wrong but I don't think BYU nor TCU were ranked in 2009
when they both beat the Utes, as members of the MWC.
I'll definitely be at this game in a BYU hat and USU shirt, hoping the
Aggies can take down the Utes. There's a lot of optimism in Cache Valley
for the Aggies this year, and what Coach Anderson has been doing in certainly
responsible for that.Watch out for the USU run game (including
Keeton) and how many INTs Wynn throws. I'm expecting a close game.Stranger things have happened after all.
The last game Andersen coached against as a Ute didn't see a loss coming
their way. Assuming USU reduces penalty yards the Aggies will make this a close
rvalens2Fail, we heard all the Rose Bowl talk last year as well. They
won't sniff the PC
Coach Anderson has done a great job at USU so far. Almost knocking off Auburn
last year would have been sweet. They probably won't knock off the Utesies
but like has been said when you lose to 2-10 Colorado you shouldn't really
start thumping your chests about who you never lose to.We know the Utesies
team is two things in this order:1. Defense2. White the 16thLike last year the Defense will win a lot of games for U this year. USC and
Barkley will destroy U mark it down.
I love Coach Andersen, but Utah is not going to lose to Utah State this year.The Aggies will provide a good test (to gauge where the Utes are) but
this year the defensive line for Utah is nothing short of incredible. It reminds
me a lot of the 2004 and 2008 Utah defenses.The Utes have a decent
shot at the PAC-12 championship game if their offense can play reasonably well
@unca bonyou're right they're not byu so they dont play
mwc or wac teams every week. good call!most ppl besides y fans would
say thats a good thing.
uteanymous"Nice spin, but Kyle lost to EVERY bottom-dwelling
team in the MWC - New Mexico, Colorado State, Wyoming, AND 10-loss UNLV"dont forget to add byu to that list as well!
Uteology"Utah hasn't lost to an non-ranked WAC or MWC team
in over 61 games. I don't see us losing Friday."Nice spin,
but Kyle lost to EVERY bottom-dwelling team in the MWC - New Mexico, Colorado
State, Wyoming, AND 10-loss UNLV - and he's continued that dubious
distinction of losing to conference bottom dwellers in the PAC, where he's
already lost to 10-loss Colorado and barely survived beating 4-win WSU last
season. Kyle's record against good teams in the PAC isn't anything to
brag about either. Kyle didn't beat a single PAC opponent with a winning
record in 2011.
Way to go SnackPAC!!!!! Great call; great post! I'm laughing so hard I
may not have enough left to go with an Aggie win Friday night! Banzai!!
Uteology,That may be true, but you haven't played a WAC or MWC
team every week either. I will do people a favor. You have won your last 24
MWC/WAC games against unranked opponents. That's still really good, but
before those 24 you lost two in a row against UNLV and Air Force.For
reference, BYU has lost 5 such games since 2006, so not quite as good as Utah
(who have lost 4 within that time frame). Just making sure the record was set
Was the 62nd game the 27-0 game against UNLV?
Snack PAC:"It's nice to see our resident troll finally
admitting that the even the Aggies are now better than the Utes."A wise man once said, "It takes one to know one." Or maybe it was a
young child, either way.But you're right in your first post, we
can lose to anybody, and I expect a great game from the Aggies, though I do
think we will pull away in the second half.Go Utes!
"You are the second best program in Utah and I respect coach Anderson for
his work,..."It's nice to see our resident troll finally
admitting that the even the Aggies are now better than the Utes.
I'm a Ute fan first, Aggie fan second. I am really looking forward to
seeing the Aggies compete in the MWC next year. I don't seeany $20 tickets
for sale anywhere. This game should be a small test for the Utes. I don't
see the Aggies being better at any positions but QB and maybe place kicker.
Those won't be enough. Utah should winn this game without any problem on
the backs of the D-line and John White.Go Utes! Go Aggies!
Uteology"Utah hasn't lost to an non-ranked WAC or MWC team
in over 61 games."It's laughable how fixated you are on
labels. As we saw last year versus 10-loss Colorado, Utah is capable of losing
I agree with Rodgers. There are tix for sale on ksl for $20. This game should be
played on Saturday. More fans would show up. I wasn't going but due to the
availability of cheap tickets, I guess I'll head over. Go Utes.
It's too bad none of the high school football population will be able to
watch the game. Half of the state of Utah will be at high school venues.
Romney stadium, which struggles to fill on a Saturday, sure could use that high
school community to help fill the stands.
Aggies, You are the second best program in Utah and I respect coach
Anderson for his work, but at the end of the day you, like byu, are a wac team
and two levels below a conference of champion member and two time bcs winner.
Thanks for playing. Utah 30Usu 17Mark it down. Utah 31Byu 10Usu 24Byu 17
