We would have loved to come in and compete with USC and Oregon for Pac 12 supremacy from day one. Clearly we can't. However, I'm far from giving up on Whittingham and this team. I think we have a decent shot this weekend. OSU is a good team but I still doubt they are one of the top 10 best in the country.

Whittingham keeps talking about a process in competing in the Pac 12. I wish it weren't so, but I've still got total confidence in him. After a handful of coaching legends such as Saban, Miles, Spurrier, Stoops, Peterson at Boise, is there really anyone who would be doing a better job than Whittingham? I dare say no.

Give it a couple more years and we'll be truly fighting USC, Oregon, Stanford for the Pac 12 title and Rose Bowl.

Until then - staying faithful!

Good Luck against OSU, Utah! This BYU fan hopes you win every game but one, so I hope you do well this weekend.

Kyle's 70% winning record is pretty good (68-29), but you need to put a few more coaches ahead of him in the pecking order. Bob Stoops, Urban Meyer, Mark Richt, Garry Patterson, Chip Kelly and Brian Kelley all have better records. Heck, even Bronco is a few percentage points better.

If the kids on the hill aren't happy with the first half of the season, they're not going to be happy with the second half either.

It only gets worse from here with a freshman QB, a line that can't punch its way out of a paper bag, a defense that can't tackle, and a coaching staff that appears to be outmatched nearly every week.

How does 2-10 sound, Utah? Expect your new pac 10.2 "rival's" record from last year to be your record.

That's okay Chris B, I'm sure you'll be back in full swing next fall making all kinds of pre-season predictions of Pac-12 Championship glory and pre-season Rose Bowl victories for the utes.

You're about as good at judging the talent of a team as you are predicting the outcome of games. In other words, you have no credibility what so ever! OSU is going to dismantle the Utes. Mark it down

You know, every time a Y "fan" calls out how weak Utah is, it only makes you haters look extremely foolish. Which is what is to be expected of you anyways, so I guess it is no surprise.
If Utah is the "PAC 12 doormat",(something haters such as yourself always say) then I guess BYU is the dust underneath the doormat. Check that, they are the microscopic bugs on the dust underneath the doormat. We own the Y, and you know it!

Hey Sitake, why don't you guys really watch film more carefully? You see when Star is getting double teamed, sometimes triple teamed, and nobody gets in the back field, or rarely does. What is going on there? I'm sorry, but Joe and Dave only wish they were half as good as Paul. I'll always be a diehard Utes fan, but the defense is absolutely horrible this year. Hopefully they do turn things around. Go Utes!!

Wallbanger,
Broomer is the same guy who has been saying for weeks the cougars are just a couple of bad calls away from being undefeated so his credibility, even among the other cougars, is sketchy at best.
Best just to ignore him and not add to his 15 minutes.
