79Ute: So anything Lou Holtz says is gospel truth? No need to verify? My only
point was that you and others keep repeating something that is completely false
and can be verified in about 15 seconds with a modicum of research, even for
someone without any knowledge of Stanford academics. And you should take Lou
Holtz's comments with a big grain of salt: he hasn't exactly been a
Utah homer over the years (his comments re: the Sugar Bowl win come to mind--you
can Google that too).In my view, Utah put it all together for the
Stanford game, something they have only managed to do once this year, despite
showing flashes of potential against OSU and UCLA. But Lee Corso may have a
I personally have really enjoyed the last couple of weeks of instate college
Eddie. Your question to SamoanYFan. "And what "word" would that
be?". "High Five" bro.
With the Ute quarterback injured, the title of this article should've been:
"USC adding salt to injury".
@ Krispy Zadoosh - Salt Lake, UT - "Loving my PAC 12 membership."Hey, YOU like being the doormat of the Pac-12?, knock yourself out,
pal......As for the big brother down south, it's a GREAT time
to be a Cougar!
@Ute Expat:The question is not whether I did my research or whether
Stanford is on the quarter or semester system. My comment accurately reported
what Dr. Holtz said several times on Saturday and again on Monday following the
Stanford game.The question is what explains how Utah can beat
Stanford one week, lose to Arizona the next week because they lacked emotion
according to Utah's head coach, and lost to a beleaguered Trojan team
today? Please Google: Get a clue!
Downward and spiraling.Watching BYU play hoping they'll lose
just made them catch the Boise turnover handouts to the other team. They sure
were tasty to the other team! "Half of usc's team is
injured. Their offense is bad with first stringers. We won't lose to their
backups." Utah got annihilated to another planet by a team with
backups on NCAA sanctions. THAT is something to write down.
@EddieSorry I meant:Onward and Upward. Voice to text
error. Either way I couldn't more proud of the way the Utes played
today.Even though they lost they showed resiliency on defense and it
shows they can play with anybody in the country.So proud to have
someone represent the state of Utah in the most revered and beloved BCS system.
Again...Onward and Upward
Everything is right in the football world. The teams are heading in the
directions we all thought they would 9 weeks ago. I love seeing by
Cougars on national tv every week. I tried to find the Utah game on a
nationally recognized network but couldn't. I guess IS the face of college
football in Utah.Lee Corso commented this morning that Utah cannot
win outside of Utah. I guess he knows his stuff.
SamoanYfan,And what "word" would that be?
I was really proud of utah today.
Couldn't be more proud of the Utes and their defense. Holding them to only
one touchdown was a valiant effort.So grateful for the opportunity
to play in the elite PAC-12.On word and up word
@4601That is all of the time, nothing unique about today.
The loss on the field is embarrassing enough, but Utah fans are embarrassing the
team off the field. Be gracious winners and losers.
Loving my PAC 12 membership.
@lifelong uteYou were right, usc did not reach 300 total yards. Of
course Utah barely got 200 total yards....
As a Y fan I still respect the Utes for they beat my team. I was hoping they
would beat SC today but oh well. The bowl eligibility is blown, but the season
ain't over. Lets get ready for a strong finish Utes. Let's beat the
"USC won't reach 300 total yards today."They won't
79 Ute and others, please do your research before spouting the Stanford midterms
excuse. Stanford is on the quarter system. They had just started class about 2
weeks prior to the Utah game. Just because Lou Holtz said it doesn't make
it true. Please Google "Stanford academic calendar."
I like Whittingham. I like the Ute team. The Ute fans are the problem. I
speak as a BYU fan hit in the head by a snowball thrown by a utah fan.
I appreciate Coach Whitt's steady demeanor, but can he inspire his team?
I'm going to put my Utah sweatshirt away until women's gymnastics
Wow... Wilson has how many pics/turnovers this game? He has to be leading the
country in interceptions.
I for one wish that Chris B, Navel Vet, etc. would just go away and allow these
blogs to be constructive. No wonder BYU fans hate us so much.
Its ironic that Ute fans are Stanford fans today in the name of the BCS
I guess it's official: the Utes only care about beating BYU. Can't
work hard enough to win on the road outside of Utah.
Total meltdown by he utes. Their season is over as far as a bowl game is
considered. BYU is clearly the best team in the state no matter how Chris spins
The U must have left it all on the field against Stanford - there's nothing
left in the tank, emotionally or physically. When I first heard Lou Holtz
explain that Stanford's loss to the U was because the Stanford scholars had
midterms that week I laughed. It's no laughing matter now - I guess that
explains it!After the Stanford game I honestly thought we might
finish with eight wins, but six wins is in doubt at this point with the WSU game
on the road. We'll be lucky to beat our new arch rival, CU.
For Thanksgiving, all of can be grateful that the CU game is at home. Why is our team not progressing as we go through the season? Coaching? Chris B - how do you feel about Wilson v. Hill now as the QB of the
future? We're as shallow at QB this year as ever.
How did BYU lose to this ute team? Just shows that on any given Saturday...
This game makes Utah State look good.
This is really embarrassing for the Utes. With only 46 scholarship players, USC
only has the bare minimum necessary to have a two-deep of all scholarship
players, even using walkons as backups for kicker and punter.
I think we should just all be quiet today as we are just embarrassing ourselves
on this blog. The Utes are clearly way in over their heads if we can't
beat the third string of USC.
This is getting embarrassing. Please represent the state better than this.
Nice 3 pt gift to end the half. Who is calling these plays? Let's bring a
guy off the bench and have him throw downfield with 20 seconds left. Nice call.
No tshirts being made on this one...
It's looking like our season is one game - beating Stafford!
Chris your own words will huant you. Your right USC is playing their 2 and 3
stringers as well as their walk-ons. WoW will it be embarasssing to to lose to
USC with all of those non 1 stringersSure enjoyed watching the game last
night but have to listen here and there to this game on the radio
Why do I suspect that our friend Chris B is going to be conspicuously absent
from here on out. And yes, Utah IS play USC's 3rd string. Way to
Utah lucky to be in this one with all the TOs. Why was Utah throwing the ball
with 23 seconds left in the half. Not a good call from DE.
USC fans are Chris B to the 10th degree. Let's go Utah! if you are in the
Pac, show us you deserve to be there. Stop embarrassing the state!
Chris B,In order to play BYU in the Kraft Hunger Bowl, the Utes must
be bowl eligible. One step at a time...
I guarantee the Utes won't lose this game. USC has all their backups in
and the Utes will not lose...mark it down. I coudn't be more proud of them
and their BCS affiliation.Onward and upward
Nice dream, Chris B. Get Utah Bowl eligible first. That may not happen.
@Lifelong UteAnd the Utes offense won't get to 200 yds, Mark that
With a turnover machine like Wilson quarterbacking the Utes, Utah has very
little chance of even qualifying for a bowl.
Put Shultz in already, this is ridiculous.
TOs...utes can't afford them. Wilson needs to take some heat off those
screen passes...poor throw.
Wish the game was on TV, unlike every BYU game.
USC won't reach 300 total yards today.
I am warming up to the idea of playing byu in our bowl game. What better way to
end the season by setting a new NCAA record with 5 wins over the same team in 4
Half of usc's team is injured. Their offense is bad with first stringers.
We won't lose to their backups. Go utes!Onward and
