Who am I sir?

"First time USC has visited SLC in 95 years. (Have they ever visited any other city?)"

Been there, done that. BYU played #1-ranked USC home-and-home in 2003 and 2004.

After over a hundred years of playing football, it is fun to see our little brothers finally getting to host a big name opponent for the very first time. (USC was not a big name 95 years ago.)

"I guess I just keep in mind games like Wyoming killing us at home under McBride..."

As opposed to teams like 10-loss Colorado killing you at home under Whittingham?

How soon you forget that Colorado dominated U from the start. At halftime, the Buffs led 10-0 and held a 254-39 total-yardage advantage and an 11 1/2-minute edge in time of possession.

95 years since SLC, but only 8 since they were in the great state of Utah, when they worked BYU in Crowton's last year.

Grew up a USC fan, go Trojans!

I'm guessing utah "fans" will wish it was another 95 years before they come back after tonight.

"Getting to the Pac 12 was something the Utes earned."

By being geographically proximate and socially acceptable...

"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."

Surely there are ways to mock somebody that aren't blatantly sexist...

Nothing would make me happier than to see the Utes beat USC as they are our toughest competetor in the south.
But after last week in SD stadium in Tempe, I'm afraid the Utes have lost something since last year that will translate into a much wider margin against USC.
It's just different when you play tough teams week in and week out.
We, ASU and UofA have had to grow into the conference and we have long gaps when we're not so competetive.
Kyle's a smart coach though and he'll have the Utes back in the mix in a year or two.
But they've got to do something with their O line and get a real QB.

Enjoy another blowout in the Pac12! Utah Utes the perennial bottom feeders of the conference!! Hey maybe if your lucky the Utes can go to the Las Vegas Bowl this year.

"...The utes will struggle because of the altitude,..."

Please. Tell me you are kidding. Who is coming from Sea level to approx 4400 ft? Hint: NOT the Utah Utes!
