Today will be magical. With a win tonight, the South crown is ours.

Ute walk at 4:30. Sorry boss, I dont think I'll be feeling well around 3 PM today

Go UTES

Wow. Delusions.

I thought the first paragraph was interesting. I think the author was trying to say that the Utes were eyeing the bottom line. (1 more point than USC). But what he said was, they are eyeing the bottom, which I think is more accurate.

This going to get real ugly, real fast. Utah is not a good team. Had two good years. Ever. Thats it.

Go Broncos

Utes 27 USC 21
Ogden, UT

Two big games this week

1) One to determine likely Pac12 South Champion
2) One to determine likely WAC champion

Good luck to all involved

While I'm not expecting a win (haven't proven our o line even wants to learn how to block people) I'm going to watch this game all the way to the end and cheer for my Utes. I've been watching a lot of Being Liverpool this fall and it's given me an appreciation of what a real fan is all about. Getting to the Pac 12 was something the Utes earned and they will have to make their bones in this league where underdogs beat up on favorites every week and amazing athletes are part of every program from football to soccer. We are going to have our good days and bad days in this conference to be sure and win or lose, I'd like to be witness to that part of history. Anyone who thought we were going to come in and quickly dominate the Pac 12 was living in a fools (and a foolish fans) paradise. That said---go get 'em Utes! You can be that upset team just as much as any team in this conference.

Go Utes! Win lose or draw, I have supported Utah Atheletics since I was a kid. I love my Utes!

Our delusional little brothers will get another taste of reality tonight.

I'm grateful for what Mcbride did for Ute football, but really, it seems to have all started with Urban Meyer. It's so cool to see us, just shy of ten years ago, hosting a USC game at home. Very neat things are in store for us, and it's been great to see our team grow like this :)

I would absolutely LOVE it if Utah can beat USC. GO Utes!

You must only be in your teens. Ron McBride is the man that started all this stuff up here, Urban Meyer came along and did great things with Mac's players. It is going to be a very special night I can't wait to be there we have come so far.

Whatever-It's getting way old from all you y fans, who is really not ready for Prime Time. ESPN wants to buy out your contract, you've lost the last two Prime Times (Hawaii doesn't count) to Utah, and Boise State.

I love the "game tonight to determine the PAC 10.2 South champion" talk. True day dreamers. Where is Christy B? When she predicts it usually is bad for Utah. Maybe she has learned her lesson or her parents grounded her from using the computer.

Ha! I wish I was in my teens :) I guess I just keep in mind games like Wyoming killing us at home under Mcbride, something Utah fans forget. I was referring to Utah playing Oregon in 2004. That was a start of big things. Not to discredit Mcbride, but Meyer started some really cool stuff for us and I love seeing it pay off for us now, with us in the PAC 12 and playing USC at home.

Illustrates how far the Utes have come!

First time USC has visited SLC in 95 years. (Have they ever visited any other city?) However, they will visit SLC every other year from now on! They along with Oregon (3 of the next 6 years), Stanford, (2 of the next 4 years), UCLA (every other year), Arizona State (every other year), Michigan (within the next 4 years), the rest of the PAC-12 teams. And there still remains a few games to schedule out of conference teams in the near future.

Also our Lady Utes are playing the defending national champion and currently rated number two team - the Stanford Cardinals on National TV. Also this weekend our Lady Utes volleyball team play the number two rated Washington Huskies on National TV. Both games are conference games.

Can you say, "Big Time?"

Go Utes.

Good luck, Utes. If you can hold it close, you will have a chance. We will see.

That's A Good One

An optimistic bunch. Good for you. A part of me hopes the Utes can pull it off. However, it gets extremely tiring to hear the "we're automatically better now than our old peers simply because of conference affiliation".

Our Broncos, while not as good this year either, have fed the boots to the Utes for consecutive games now. "Girlsy State Cheerleaders" tweets come to mind most recently before the latest spanking of the Utes. Conference affiliation, by itself, isn't very impressive to most. I mean, Washington State and Colorado belong to the conference of champions as well and, like the Utes, you don't see much out of them where it counts-results on the field. Vanderbilt and Kentucky are in the SEC too. Every conference has it's doormats.

It's impressive to see headlines about 6 conference teams ranked in the top 25 but comical to see Utes poking their chests out about it, seeing that Utah is nowhere near close to being included in that group. Comments like "With a win tonight, the South crown is ours" are just ignorant, especially this year.

I'd be happy to see the upset tonight. Good luck!

This game will be as exciting as last nights debate. USC will dominate from the beginning to end. The utes will struggle because of the altitude, and moderator (refs).
