@ Spokane Ute: No doubt the Stanford loss was a significant disappointment, but you're also presuming I feel the athleticism of your Utties is up there with Stanford. Nope. Not close.

@ cedarcityute: 24-21, huh? I'm afraid not. Your offense is reeling. This will be a dominating performance by Barkley and his playmaker wideouts. We'll chat about the score on Friday.

You guys are playing w/ the big boys now, week in and week out. At season's end, SC will still be playing Oregon for the Pac 12 Championship ... mark it down.

u mad bro?


you guys are blown out by an unranked team, and now you're predicting a win vs one of the best teams in the nation? hahaha

USC: Meet the Muss. Just ask BYU.

Hint: The MUSS is planning to rush the field BEFORE the game this time.

We played USC right to the wire last year. It was a great game. You are one of the few USC fans that I've talked to that doesn't respect the Utes. Congrats on that one Some how, I don't think we will see you on Firday, unless USC wins. I will be here either way; giving credit where credit is due; that's how I roll Guy!

The Utes have been very talented for a few years now, but just like many of us in the PAC 12, we had some down years.
The hard part about playing in this conference is that week in and week out we are up against tough teams.
Certain other conferences around the country play a good or very good team, then play 2-3 cupcakes.
I would love to have seen how Utah would have fared had they been in the PAC 12 the same year they beat 'Bama.
That would have made for some great games no doubt.

Knowing coach Kyle's style and wisdom, I have no doubt that he'll have the Utes better prepared for a grueling conference in the near future.
It just won't be this year.

It took ASU and UofA a few years to gear up to the weekly challenge of playing in a tough conference.

"How did that track meet thing work out at Stanford?"

I will be here Friday as well, congratulating whomever wins, obviously I'm hoping it's Utah. If we hopefully win (I of course think we will and do think all real Utah fans need to show support) I'm sure the naysayers will all of a sudden disappear until before the next game. It happens. And SpokaneUte is right, most USC fans give credit to Utah. Those that don't seem to have amnesia about last year.

You know the saying about history repeating itself.

2003 - BYU(4-8) visits #1 USC(12-1); with 7:00 left in the game, BYU only trailed 21-18.
2004 - #1 USC(13-0) visits BYU(5-7); BYU played tough for 1 quarter, then lost 42-10.

Playing USC tough last year may have been the worst thing Utah could have done to give themselves a chance of upsetting the Trojans this year. Unfortunately for U, Utah will have USC's full attention this year.

Your'e right, Utah is probably better; but it's still pretty close. You may want to do a little research prior to chimming in next time.

San Jose State 17 - Stanford 20
Washington 17 - Stanford 13

I watched the UW - Stanford game and Stanford's not that good. Sorry to burst your bubble.

@snack pac

Do you honestly think what happened to BYU 8 and 9 years ago vs. USC; has any relavence to Utah playing USC this year? Would you be intereted in buying some ocean front property here in Spokane?

Yeah, I'm not quite sure how BYU stats are relevant to what Utah is doing, but ok? Anyway, excited to see our Utes play and see both teams do their best! If any of you Utah or USC fans aren't part of the pac 12 fb page yet, you should join. It's pretty cool. Lots of discussions about each team and for the most part it's pretty positive and fun to see all the fans get together.

It's interesting how every spring Utah fans beat their chests about every recruit that might be slightly better than a BYU recruit, as if stars next to a player's name proves anything, yet those same Utah fans try to pretend that Utah actually has a chance of beating the Trojans despite the vast difference in talent between the Trojans and the Utes.

Looking forward to lots of whiny excuses after the game about D-II QBs, freshmen starting on the O-line, and still wet behind the ears offensive coordinators.
