I agree having Oregon and Stanford on the schedule will increase the difficulty,
but I don't think it has been pointed out yet that when Utah visits Oregon
it is the week right after Oregon has played at Stanford. I think that is a
great time to face Oregon, they will be in recovery mode and more than likely
not have the same energy or drive that they will have had expended days earlier
against the Cardinal. Ute fans are really going to have to be a factor in the
Stanford game at Rice-Eccles. I see both games being close! I know, I am super
optimistic, but I like our chances.
Kyle has proven he can have top 5 undefeated teams.Erickson has proven he
can have top 5 undefeated teams.Kyle has said since day 1 it would
take time to get enough Pac 12 talent to replace the MWC "talent"We will go 8-4 this year and we have as good a chance as anyone in the
South at winning the division and playing in the Pac 12 title game. The south
is so balanced that anyone but Colorado can win it.If we can stop
the injuries and get a few bounces 9-3 is even possible. Go UTES.
