    @Aggie238

    How you feeling after that choke job? I told you what would happen. The so called "Best QB in the state" couldn't help his team win.

    He proved more then you will ever see. And he did it with class. Sorry but you have nothing to say. Keeton hasn't proved himself.

    No surprise that the byu trolls are here, hiding behind USU. lol.

    Go Utes!

    Go Aggies...After today...11-1...major bowl...Chuckie Keeton Heisman finalist.

    @ ChristopherB:

    If you do a little bit of objective analysis, it's not hard to understand why people are picking the Utes to lose to the Y this year. 2 of the last 3 years have gone down to the last play of the game. Last year, the Y had more offensive yardage than the U... and that was in SLC.
    And since there is a propensity for things to balance out in the history of the rivalry, it all adds up to it being the Y's turn to win this year, and probably by a double digit margin. Then you won't get another chance at payback for 3 more years!

    And since it's pretty obvious to everyone reading these posts that you and Chris B are one and the same, your commitment to not post on any more BYU sports articles after the U loses to them on September 21st still holds firm... for any and all of your pseudo-names.

    Marked it down.

    Rational,

    Yes, being the 8th seed in the NBA is significantly better than being mathematically eliminated halfway through the season, like byu and usu!

    Would byu and usu like to be in contention for a Rose bowl within 2 games left?

    Yes

    Will they be?

    No

    Will Utah ?

    Yes

    At that point it only takes a few things to happen to make that Rose Bowl a reality.

    And how about those teams eliminated halfway through the season?

    BTW, reading an article and subsequent comments that doesn't include your team is also a form of obsession.

    Chris B's posts are annoying, even for a Ute fan. I skip over most. Although it's funny how many of you get riled up over them, do you not know that's what he's trying to do? LOL

    TJ is right. The obsession is strong. Notice that the very first post takes a swipe at a team that is nowhere mentioned in the article.

    Chris B and ChristopherB. Obviously one and the same. Posts are nearly identical. Must be nice to have two accounts.

    Go Aggies.

    Utah 0-1

    "maybe because weber state won't dominate the utes media market like USU has done this year so far."

    Dominated where? Cache Valley only? Okay, no worries there. Put the squeaky cheese down, my friend...!

    Stang,

    Chuckie hasn't proven himself? Maybe or maybe not, but one thing is for sure: He's proved more in 1.5 seasons than your precious Brad Sorenson did in his entire collegiate career, and he still hasn't hit his ceiling. I almost wish we played SUU again this year so we could thump them for the third time in five years and enjoy a measure of peace from Stang08. But, I suppose beating up on a 5A team would be a hollow win.

    "What it means is the(at) every game matters for Utah, every game is exciting, and impacts the national football scene".

    Hahaha...impacts the national scene?! For the elite PAC12 programs, games against Utah are like that gas stop I have to make in Burley Idaho on my way to Oregon. I only stop there because I have to, regardless of whether Burley residents think they have the prettiest river or lava rocks in the nation. It's a nice town to fill my tank on my way to a prettier and more desired location. That's Utah's PAC12 membership in a nutshell...nice place for Oregon and Stanford to fill their tanks getting ready for the real competition.

    mussing,

    @Rational

    Yes, being in Rose Bowl contention within the last 1-2 games of the season is HUGE deal.

    You are either naive or deluded. If you think EVERY team that isn't mathematically eliminated with 1-2 games is still in contention, you probably think the 8th seed in the NBA playoffs is a championship contender.

    mussing,

    Intersting that you put the byu game as a loss when Van Noy, Hoffman, and the other byu players of the last 3 years haven't ever beaten Utah.

    LOL

    Utah 8-4

    @Rational

    Yes, being in Rose Bowl contention within the last 1-2 games of the season is HUGE deal.

    Will byu or usu be able to say that?

    Nope!

    LOL.

    What it means is the every game matters for Utah, every game is exciting, and impacts the national football scene.

    After byu and usu lose their first game, what are they playing for?

    WAC championships?

    LOL!

    I love my Pac 12 membership!

    Utah State will lose this game. Even with the so called "Best QB in the state". Who hasn't proven himself by the way.

    As much as Utah fans may hate to admit it, your analysis is spot on; a loss to USU could be devastating to Utah's bowl hopes this season.

    "Meanwhile Utah will be in Rose Bowl contention within last 1-2 games of season"

    After losing to the Aggies, the Utes won't even be in contention for a bowl game.

    Where are U going to find 6 wins without a win over Utah State?

    Weber St, Washington State and Colorado, IF U manage to sweep them, only gives U three wins.

    Oregon St maybe, depends on how good OSU is this year
    @BYU loss
    UCLA loss
    Stanford loss
    @Arizona loss
    @USC loss
    ASU maybe, if DE can conjure some magic versus his old team
    Oregon loss

    A loss to USU, means the high water mark for Utah is 5-7, more than likely 4-8.

    USU 24
    Utah 17

    Go Aggies!

    It doesn't matter if USU is a rival or not. Last years victory exposed a team ill-prepared to play in the PAC 12, just like this years victory by USU will expose a team that didn't take any lesson's from last years game, except to put more PAC 12 logos on everything. The truth is Utah is the PAC 12's new Washington State. Maybe being in the Mountain West wasn't so bad afterall. And I know, I'm about to get a whole raft of "You're jealous" rants and, yes, maybe I am. But I would sooner see my team in the conference it is in with a chance to win, then in a conference it will never win in but joined simply for the money. Enjoy all that extra cash. USU 24 Utah 20.

    Chris B,

    You are arrogant and dismissive of rivals -- calling an MWC team a "WAC" team as an intended insult -- yet we've never seen you post anything of your own athletic accomplishments. Are there any?

    BTW, "In contention with 1 or 2 games to go" isn't much of a claim. Half the division will still be in contention at that point. Are you saying Utah "may" be in the top half of the South?

    Chris B,
    Are you wearing your Quest for the Rose Bowl T-shirt? Or the one with the dates the utes have played with each year crossed out? I have marked down your predictions and will remind you when they do not come true!!! Game day is finally here!!!

    Go Cougs!!!
    Go Utes except tonight and Sept. 21st!!!
    Go Aggies beat the running scared Utes!!!

    The BYU obsession lives on here in these posts. Even when the article is about USU vs Utes.

    Sounds like the Utes want this too much and are dwelling on last years loss. USU has a great chance in this game. They will score points because their O-line is better and more experienced. If the U's o-line comes together, they should be solid against USU's d-line but USU's LBs and DBs are excellent. The U will be lucky to score 20 pts tonight. If USU scores more than 20, the odds are in their favor.

    rival or no rival? who cares

    all I know is chrisbe wont be posting about weber state non stop and on every article.

    maybe because weber state won't dominate the utes media market like USU has done this year so far.

    chrisbe we don't want or need you to cheer for USU, that would be a black eye for us to have you on our side, thanks anyway.

  • Chris B Salt Lake City, UT
    Aug. 29, 2013 9:12 a.m.

    Is usu our rival?

    No.

    We're posting about them because we play them this week.

    After this week, I'll cheer for them just like we cheer for southern Utah and weber state.

    Go Utes!

  • Chris B Salt Lake City, UT

    Utah will beat usu like the wac team they are.

    Yes, usu's season will be over(much like byu's after their first loss)

    Meanwhile Utah will be in Rose Bowl contention within last 1-2 games of season

    Mark it down

    Utah 30
    usu 17

    Go Utes!
