"There you go Naval. From the article 'BYU Footbal: Another QB commits to Cougars' April 7,2011
Now if only you could back up half of what you post."

Can YOU? I just looked at that article, and not ONE of those quotes you pecked out were from me! In fact, out of those 145 comments, NONE of them were from me. That first quote was from somebody from Ogden named "WarriorWeber". Your second was from another person, from Denver, named "Honor Code". How frantic and emotional of you to desperately try to attribute some other posters comments to me. I'm not even sure what was the point of your post since it isn't really refuting anyone here.

Epic fail.

If you're presuming that my sole expectation from Whittingham is to beat the Indy-WACers, than you either haven't been reading my posts, or are attempting a strawman argument...like sammyg or Duckhunter. Just because beating little brother is "expected", that doesn't mean it's my ONLY expectation. Personally, I'd be wholly in favor of not scheduling your irrelevant WAC-worthy program unless we're getting a 2-for-1 out of it. I'm much more interested in seeing the Utes elevate our play to a point where we can finally win the Pac-12 South. Once we can do that, then I will look forward to attaining a higher standard wherein we can finally play in the Rose Bowl. After playing in the Rose Bowl, the next goal will be to win a national championship.

And Kyle played Madden football on his xBox during the holidays.
And Kyle and company read the season end rankings and cried.
And then Kyle and company watched the basketball team and sighed.
Then they read about the mess in the swimming dept.
And then in the newspaper they saw the 'intramural' Rugby team go belly up.
Then they read yesterday's article.

And Norm Chow laughed on the beach.

Nothing more entertaining than seeing Ute fans elevate themselves to the highest levels and then watching the team hold them back but they... cliff jump anyway.

All this angst over an article that lists Bronco as the better coach on the national stage. It's like a dagger to the heart huh?

Elevating the play? Try something a little less lofty like winning 50% of your conference games.

Playing in a Rose Bowl? I'll pick one up for you at the dollar store.

And bronco had his chance in the Pac10 and got fired.
And Norm Chow laughed at how the tds went back to being the little brother after he and Lavelle left.
And some people can't handle the truth so they resort to name calling.

Another strawman from you. My comment was for "Y Grad / Y Dad", and had nothing to do with a coach being ranked higher than the coach that owns a .625 record against him. Ooooh yeah. Whittingham's .625 record vs. mendenmidmajor means that mendenmidmajor's record vs. Whittingham is a paltry .375. It's like a dagger to your WACish and midmajory heart, isn't it sammy?

Looks like this is the last year the Y will ever get to stamp their name in the annals of "BCS Bowl participants". Even Hawai'i (WAC) and No. Illinois (MAC) got there, but your boys laid great big giant goose egg there. And should they get a BCS Bowl invitation this year [yeah, laughable...I know], and win [snicker], you'll finally rise up to the level of "1/2 the program of your big brother."

"LOL"

Looks like your best bet would be to just go buy a trophy at the Dollar Store.

Naval,
That comment was meant to go on the article about Utah having depth at qb. You had told Duck he was making up that anyone had made such comments. I was simply showing you that those comments were made. Apology accepted.

Then that means it is the one of the ONLY expectations that has been met in the last couple of years.

Oh, and beating Colorado. Good job.

By the way, you should be careful what you wish for. The Arizona and California schools might as well start lobbying the PAC for 2 for 1's with Utah, the way U have been playing.

Your comments about WACish opponents are the real strawman. After all, BYU beat Georgia Tech, which handled USC easily in their bowl game (at least the Trojans made it to a bowl game). And BYU was able to beat the USU Aggies (which actually was a WAC team).

When they do not have a leg to stand on, they resort to name calling.

Wells was ranked extremely low on the list. And the USU fan's expect to have a winning season wiht the new coach? Guess what guys, a winning season won't happen.

"The Utes went 13-0, 10-3, and 10-3 in the MWC. That's hardly considered a "steady decline"."

LOL at your spin.

Since 2008 the Utes have gone
2008 #2/#4/#5 13-0
2009 #18/#18/#24 10-3
2010 unranked/#23/#26 10-3
2011 unranked/#39 8-5
2012 unranked/#61 5-7 no bowl

Only a desperate Utah homer unable to accept reality would try to describe that record as anything other than a "steady decline".

Your Replaygate scenario is complete fantasy! BYU would have beaten SDSU even without the controversial fumble call, which, btw, BYU had absolutely nothing to do with.

It's always funny that people keep bringing up that "controversial fumble call" against SDSU. I mean, it's not like Utah ever beat BYU in part because of a controversial fumble call.

"Looks like this is the last year the Y will ever get to stamp their name in the annals of "BCS Bowl participants"."

Who cares! The failed bogus championship series will soon become a forgotten relic of the past. Top 25 rankings and national championships are the only enduring measuring sticks for long term major college football success, and in those categories, Utah is barely a blip on the national radar, while BYU will always be a former national champion and perennial Top 25 team.

"By the way, you should be careful what you wish for. The Arizona and California schools might as well start lobbying the PAC for 2 for 1's with Utah, the way U have been playing."

Utah is 1-1 against Arizona, UCLA, and Cal...

You fail.

Utah is great, sometimes, at beating teams when they're down, but the sorry Utes haven't beaten a single PAC 10.2 team with a winning record.

"it's not like Utah ever beat BYU in part because of a controversial fumble call."

No, but it puts an asterisk on your incessant boasting about stats, rankings and overall records.

We had to beat you guys 3 times last year because of 2 controversial calls.

ekute,

What 2 calls were controversial? Just because the fans are so "brilliant" they don't know how to wait until the game is over to rush the field doesn't make it controversial. Inconvenient maybe , but not controversial.

BTW, I looked everywhere for the asterisk and couldn't find it. You "ute" fans have your own reality.

Classic Ute whining about "controversial" calls. It's funny that you don't insist on an asterisk being placed on Utah's 2010 win because of the bogus fumble that the Utes were given.
