u mad bro?

There you are Utah! I was wondering where you went!

West Jordan, UT

Just like last year, Utah got up big for BYU but then had a huge emotional letdown the following week. In spite of all their PAC-12 bravado it is obvious that Utah coaches, players and fans still take the rivalry with BYU as seriously as ever.

Everett, WA

“We got whipped tonight, soundly. They're a better football team than we are.”
Utah coach Kyle Whittingham ....

At least Whit can face the truth, something Bronco seems incapable of ...

So glad Chris B guaranteed another Utah win. I have it marked down and everything.

Go Pac 12.

West Jordan, Utah

Okay here is the bye week. Use it like fall camp, work hard and get the offensive production way up. You need to score points to win in the PAC 12 this year.

Open up the playbook please. You can't expect you r defense to win grind it out games in the PAC 12. This isn't the MWC. Teams are going to score points. You have to as well.


What a horrendous and embarrassing display. I know Ute fans aren't going to want to hear this, but this is why it was hard to give them credit for their big seasons in the MWC. These teams in the Pac-12 are just better. They're bigger, they're faster, they're stronger and Utah simply doesn't have the types of athletes it needs to compete.

Franklin, IN

Holy Cow!!! We sucked last night...

Could be a lo g, long (did I mention long)...and painful year in the PAC 10...


Harwich, MA

This team feels a little like the 70's and 80's teams. Unfortunately that's not such a good thing in the win column. It looks like we can join the ranks of the throngs of unhappy souls in Happy Valley and "look forward to next year".

Syracuse, UT


Chris B it's time to wake up now, your dream has turned into a nightmare.

Danbury, CT

Hey, Ms. B., what about those predictions??

Utah will struggle this season to have a winning record. That said, they are in a better place with the PAC 12 and will eventually rise closer to the level of the competition. Just like ASU has...

South Jordan, UT

At least they didn't storm the field and belittle and curse the Utah coach and the players. Arizona State: Class 1 team in sportsmanship and athletic ability. Losing isn't never fun in any circumstance. Feel the pain!

Now we can really see how bad BYU is this year. Ouch!

Highland, UT

There is really only one thing to say, although I mat say some more stuff anyway.


Salt Lake City, UT

Well said, Kyle.

American Fork, UT

Look on the bright side Ute Nation, you will probably still finish in the top ten....of your conference.

Chris B, Jr.
Saint George, UT

Of course they will lose, whe the other team does not score points for you.

Salt Lake City, UT

Hopefully this wakes Utah up. A lot of hype this year about going to the Rose Bowl. It will not happen in our lifetime. Utah is not on the same level as USC, Standord, Oregon, and as we saw last night, Arizona State. Sure, the Utes may upset one of them here or there, but they will never beat them all in the same year. Utah's best bet for BCS was staying in a mid tier conference. To put it in perspective, they are like Air Force or San Diego State in the Mt West. Even more so like Arizona State. ASU used to win all of the WAC championships until, like Utah, they went to the Pac 8 in the 70s. They have always been a non threatening member of the conference, going to the Rose Bowl once in 95. One more time than Utah will go.

No matter how arrogant they become (coaches, players, and fans), Utah will never be on the same level as USC, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, and Washington

BYU fans, you will never achieve that quest for perfection. Go FCS, there may be some good fortune for you there.

Layton, Utah

How's that Pac-12 dominance working out for ya Ute fans?

Anybody checked on Chris B? Is he/she alright? LOL

Kaysville, UT

At lease U State is dominating; at least someone is representing our great state well. Great team to watch.

Go Aggies!
