ChristoperBI think Utah should get some one like the Ekels or
Huntsman to do some recruiting foe some help in funds If Utah is going to be
abel to be kempetive in the pac.12 or Else go back to the Mountain west ware you
can win.Oregon has the CEO of Nike Usc and Ucla has movie
stars and former players and every one else just splits there revenues or just
like Utah !!!God luck Utah
redfeather: "THE most coveted bowl destination for PAC teams."Utah was in the MWC at the time. An at large BCS bid is the same, regardless
of destination. A rare Pac-12 vacancy in the Rose Bowl is the only reason TCU
went there, rather than the Sugar or Orange or Fiesta, not anything special TCU
had done. If 11-1 USC had been ranked #2 instead of 11-1 Oklahoma, Utah may very
well have gone to the Rose Bowl instead, and been much closer to home than Penn
State instead of going into a virtually home environment for Alabama at the
Superdome. Either way, the achievement would have been the same. Now if
we're talking about receiving an at large BCS bid instead of an automatic
qualifying bid, yes the achievement is slightly dampened.
utahcountyuteUnfortunately for U, winning a bcs bowl isn't the
pinnacle of major college football success; that would be winning a National
Championship, even better, a CONSENSUS National Championship - a place the Utes
have never been and will never be even as a member of a power conference.The closest you'll ever get to one of those coveted Crystal
Football National Championship Trophies...is BYU's Legacy Hall
Both BCS bowls and a place the cougies have never been and never will until they
can get into a power conference.
The Rose Bowl is the "Grand-Daddy" of them all and, with the exception
of the bcs championship/playoffs, THE most coveted bowl destination for PAC
"And unlike Utah, TCU won the Rose Bowl."Unlike TCU, Utah
won the Sugar Bowl. Doy...
Uteology"In 2008 Utah was 32 votes from a national
title."1. Florida(48) 1606 points2. Utah(16) 1519
pointsUnfortunately for U, that's as close as you'll ever
get, and it wasn't that close. Florida had 3 times as many 1st place votes
and 87 more points than Utah.By comparison, TCU only finished 80
points behind Auburn in 2010.1. Auburn(56) 1472 points2.
TCU(3) 1392 pointsAnd unlike Utah, TCU won the Rose Bowl.
@anti BCSBETTER than Utah's chances of winning a National
Championship... EVER!--------------Really? In 2008 Utah
was 32 votes from a national title. I'm still waiting, during
the BCS era what's your chances of finally getting a BCS win?@talkinsportsUtah's 2 WAC titles are as relevant today as
Utah's 22 pre-WAC titles.Let me put in another perspective,
Utah has as much of a chance at winning a PAC-12 title as BYU does a BCS game.
Uteology"1984 smack on the eve of 2013? Good one!What's your chances of winning a BCS game this year?"BETTER than Utah's chances of winning a National Championship...EVER!
Uteology1984 National Championship smack beats conference
championship smack from a team that's only won 6 conference championships
since 1958.Put in perspective, Bronco won as many conference
championships during his 6 years in the MWC, as Utah won during their entire 37
years in the WAC.Despite the delusional predictions of the kids on
the hill, talk of the Utes vying for a PAC championship is laughable; winning
conference championships is something the Utes don't do. Except
for Urban Meyer, who is long gone, it's been SIXTY years since a Utah coach
won back-to-back conference championships.
Finally, can't wait until Thursday.Go UTES!!@skywalkerWhen was the last time Utah finished the season ranked
#1 in any meaningful poll?-----------1984 smack on the
eve of 2013? Good one!What's your chances of winning a BCS
game this year?
DeepBlue:What the DN depth chart doesn't show is that the
official depth chart shows Reilly OR Blechen as starter. Of course, actual
facts don't phase trollers, do they? As far as Chucky is concerned, Utah
has two great fast dual-threat freshman running the scout team playing Chucky in
practice. Utah won't be surprised by anything CK will, won't or
can't do.You better hope your Ags do something this year -
there are a LOT of seniors on this team. If they don't strike this year,
all of GA's magic will be gone next. Lot of pressure for them farm
Once again, a UTAH story turns into Chris B vs. the trollers. UGH!Can't wait for 8/29 when order will be restored. byU "fans"
can't wait for 9/21 - more free turnovers!!Go Utes! Onward and
christy"When was the last time BYU/USU were within a field goal
of a power conference title game?"LOL at your desperate attempt
to rewrite history.U missed a frantic 48-yard FG try (Utah's
3rd FG miss of the game) on 4th and 19 with 2 seconds left, a FG that would have
meerly tied the game. But, even IF you'd made the FG and miraculously
beaten Colorado in OT, U would have been destroyed by Oregon in the championship
game anyway, so realistically, you were no closer to winning a PAC championship
than you were last season.When was the last time Utah finished the
season ranked #1 in any meaningful poll?
Looks like Blechen is still injured, out of shape, and in Whit's dog
house.Without a healthy Blechen, Utah's LB corp won't be
strong enough to cover for Utah's weak DB's.Chuckie is
licking his chops.
Utah WILL go 8-4(with all 4 losses against power conference prestigious
teams)We will complete the 4-0 career SWEEP over byu(2nd time
that's happened in last 15 years)WE will beat Utah State for the 16th
time in 17 years(LOL)We will be in contention for the Rose Bowl
within last 1-2 games of season.I called it now. Don't call me
"lucky" when I am right.Remember year ONE of the pac 12 we
were a field goal away from the Pac 12 title game!When was the last
time byu/usu were within a field goal of a power conference title game?LOL
