    I'm so excited. Chris tells me we should win the conference and play in the rose bowl next year. Isn't that great!

    "BYU is 4-4 versus Washington, including a win in 2010
    Utah is 0-8 versus Washington, including losses in 2011 and 2012"

    "BYU fans have already noticed the difference".

    Obviously!

    BYU is 6-9 all time against San Jose State
    Utah is 6-1 all time against San Jose State

    Sure BYU has a winning record against Washington but have a losing record against San Jose State.

    BYU fans are simply stating the truth, so why throw out the "class" card?

    As many BYU fans predicted when Utah was invited to the PAC 12, Utah was destined to be a middle of the PAC program.

    Utah would be good enough to beat up on some (but not all) of the conference bottom feeders, but not good enough to beat ANY of the top tier teams of the conference with any regularity.

    Show class, BYU "fans".

    Last season, with a gift-wrapped division title there for the taking - USC ineligible, no other PAC south teams with a winning record, 5 conference home games, and Oregon and Stanford not on the schedule - the Utes still couldn't get past lowly Colorado, at home, and finished 8th in the conference with a 4-5 conference record.

    This season, even IF the Utes get past Arizona and Colorado to become bowl eligible, Utah will once again finish with a losing 4-5 conference record, and will have to count D1-AA Northern Colorado in their win total just to qualify for a bowl.

    Add now the Utes are replacing California and Washington (teams Utah finished 1-3 against) with Oregon and Stanford?

    Good luck with that!

    The chances for the Utes climbing out of the PAC 12 cellar anytime soon grow slimmer and slimmer.

    "You will notice the difference once you step up and play some of these big boy teams like we have the past couple years, and then who will be laughing?"

    BYU is 4-4 versus Washington, including a win in 2010
    Utah is 0-8 versus Washington, including losses in 2011 and 2012

    BYU fans have already noticed the difference.

    The difference between Bronco and Kyle, is Bronco doesn't lose to the bad teams on his schedule. As far as noticing the difference "when we step up and play some of these big boys", sorry to burst your arrogant, delusional crimson bubble, but BYU has been playing the big boys since the 80's, long before the Utes even dreamed of getting a team like USC or Notre Dame to come to RES.

    The utes should save themselves the embarrassment, and apply for the Big Sky conference. Finishing third isn't all that bad.

    @Rockwell
    That is a good schedule lined up but don't be surprised if your struggling to even make a bowl game like we are this year. There are potential losses in at least 7-8 of those games. You will notice the difference once you step up and play some of these big boy teams like we have the past couple years, and then who will be laughing?

    Looks like another bloodbath season for the mightly utes as they once again battle Colorado for bottom feeder glory.

    "While Utah is playing top 20 teams regularly such as Oregon, Stanford, and USC, your team and fan base can get excited about playing the likes of New Mexico State, Idaho, and now.....UNLV!"

    Sorry dude, but Utah fans are going to have to update their whining about schedules.

    BYU will NEVER play another WAC team in football after this season.

    While Utah is playing teams like Oregon, Stanford and USC,

    BYU will be playing teams like Texas, Notre Dame, and Wisconsin!

    Just can't resist, can you? While Utah is playing top 20 teams regularly such as Oregon, Stanford, and USC, your team and fan base can get excited about playing the likes of New Mexico State, Idaho, and now.....UNLV! Enjoy the "challenge".

    P.S. I notice you never comment on BYU articles---just Utah. Obsessed, are we?

    @CougFaninTX

    We didn't schedule CU. See the difference?

    @Sammy

    Utah football is playing another tough schedule next year and I'm excited to watch them compete against some of the best teams in the country. It's weird that you mock football for playing great teams, when you also mock Utah basketball for not playing great teams. Haters gonna hate I guess.

    @Uncle Rico - "and at least Utah isn't signing home and homes with UNLV."

    But U are doing home and homes with Colorado. It's about the same.

    They may want to rethink that Weber St. game. Stay with me here; if they win the last two games and finish 6-6 and go to a Bowl game, they will have used an FCS victory to gain bowl eligibility. You can't count one of those games towards bowl eligibility in two consecutive years. This means that they would not be able to count a victory vs. Weber St. next year towards bowl eligibility, which is why they play these games in the first place. If they finish 6-6 this year, they have to schedule an FBS team in Weber St.'s place or risk the chance they go 6-6 next year and not be bowl eligible. Unless they've recently changed the rules.

    Re: sammyg

    At least Utah knows one game they are going to win (against BYU).

    and at least Utah isn't signing home and homes with UNLV.

    More 'happy' football for the Utes in 2012!

    And the 'greased' schedule and fast track to the Rose Bowl takes a sharp turn to the cliff.

    I can't wait to hear the cheers for this schedule and rationalization of mediocre PAC12 performance... "I'd rather see the Utes in the PAC12 and play great teams like Stanford, Oregon, USC, etc. and lose to them than win against WAC teams etc."

    Funny thing is that these so called 'lesser' conference teams will have as much chance to play a decent bowl as the Utes.

    Dream on Ute fans, dream on.
