"Vyncent Jones and junior Latu Heimuli are unavailable this week"?Huh? Injuries or more 'Ute team rules' being broken?True freshmen on the O-line does not bode well for Jon Hays or his replacement
after USC sacks him a few times. This is going to be brutal.This is
not shaping up to be a good match-up at all... but we already knew that
@sammyg"but we already knew that didn't we."Well most of us not wearing crimson tinted glasses know it. Believe it or not
but there are actually utah "fans" that think utah is going to win this
Good luck to these two freshmen - baptism by fire going up against USC but also
a great opportunity to prove yourself.As for the typical coug
"fans" posting on this and every other possible Utah article, you may
want to focus your attention on the USU game this week. Bronco has named Riley
as the starter so you should worry about how many times he will turn it over to
the Aggies.Go Utes!Go Aggies!
@Duckhunter"Yeah, how dare fans expect their team to win?
I'm guessing you were also laughing at Ute fans who thought that their
school had a legitimate chance to win the Sugar Bowl....What is
hilarious is that if Ute fans had all collectively thrown in the towel on the
season than you would be here spouting off about how fair-weather Ute fans are
and blasting them for not supporting the team.I'm not going to
bet the farm on Utah winning, but I'm excited to watch my school and many
of my friends compete against one of the best teams in the country. And, who
knows, maybe Utah will pull it out and get its season back on track. There is a
reason they play the game....
@qwestyWhy do fans have "to focus" on anything other than
the game once it starts? We aren't coaches so we don't have to game
plan. We aren't players so we don't have to learn schemes and plays.
We just get to watch whatever game happens to be on that day. On Thursday that
will be the usc/utah game although I will probably only catch some of it as I
have other committments, but I will try to watch as much of it as I can. On
Friday I will be at LES and yes that game will have my, and the vast majority of
the rest of the states, attention. Tell us how the utah team
meetings go when you, whittingham, and the rest of the team are done
"focusing" on your game plan.LOL!
DuckyGood to know you have other "committments" besides
worrying about a team you don't care about.I will be at the
game Thursday and will cheer until my throat gives. That's what fans do. I
don't know about "fans" like yourself though. I'm sure when
Riley throws his first pick six, you'll be one of first to hit the
Good luck to these two! This is a great chance to prove yourself! Go Utes!
when the y gets their behind handed to them on friday, somehow ugly duckling
will magically be in tulsa that night and sammyg will definitely be with him.
The super bowl of Utah will be this Friday, as the two best teams will do
battle.Weber, Dixie, and Southern Utah round out the top five.BYU 24USU 13
ducksam,every put down that comes on the heels of 24-21, 3 of 3 and
8 of 11 makes your post look all the more sillyDon't you have
bigger things to worry about like beating Utah State who would have 2 straight
wins against the Y had it not been for a lucky tipped pass TD last year
Too bad the best of our O-line left last year, but that's the challenge of
college. A question for the UTAH fans in here (not sure what the byu obsession
is here, but it's getting a little weird): do you think our offensive line
will improve and we'll keep some of these next year or will we have to
start from scratch next year?
WorfYou meant to say the two best teams in ugly blue right?24-21, 54-10 and Blocked!
Duckhunter, You must be a very important person to have other
committments on a Thursday night. I think I speak for the rest of the Utah fans
on these comment boards in saying I wiah I had a life like yours...full of
committments.Good thing you were able to clear your schedule Friday
night to see Utah State. Well, I guess there isn't much to conflict with
an 8:15 start time though, is there.We are happy you come down from
your high life every once in a while to set us all straight.
@ute4everIt's not that I'm so important it is that I
don't set my schedule around utah games. I do set my schedule around BYU
games although sometimes I have things that interfere with those, such as my
neices wedding in Las Vegas on the Saturday of the BYU/OSU game in a couple of
weeks. But I should be done with my own stuff by halftime Thursday so I should
be able to catch the second half, hopefully. I am sorry that you
don't have any other life though, that's a shame. But on the bright
side it appears that like almost everyone else in the state you'll be
paying full attention to LES Friday night.
utahcountyute,Looking behind to the past is a sign of weakness. My
comment refers to the present. 37-10?
LOL @ Duckhunter for trying to argue that BYU/USU is a bigger draw than Utah/USC
worfWhy would you be on an article about the Utes taking on one of
the most storied programs in history at RES, a member of the same conference and
same division and bring up a game like USU vs byU? Now that's weak!When is that game anyway? I'm pretty sure I have other
@ ducky and sammygirlYou guys must be pretty worried that your cougs are
gonna lose on Friday that you are trying to make yourselves feel good by posting
on Ute articles that have nothing to do with you. I see you guys posting on
every article posted about Utah football. If you can't beat them, whine
about them, that will fix it.
After we win, the sports writers will be crowning us South Champs with a 2 lead
game over USC essentially due to the tie breaker"University of
Utah South Pac12 Champs"Get used to it Y fans.
Utes 27 USC 21^Troll
@two for flinchingutes 27 usc 21 is your very own christina b. Also the BYU/usu game is indisputably a vastly bigger draw in this state
than the utah/usc game. BYU fans outnumber both usu and utah fans combined and
in this instance the BYU/usu game will be drawing both fanbases. It isn't
even close. LOL for you trying to argue that utah/usc is the bigger draw. I
would say the 45000 at res compared to the 65000 at LES is proof enough.
cedarcityute, to answer your question, I think Poutasi and Jones will return as
starters next year, but changing positions with Poutasi moving to the left
tackle for the next three seasons and Jones moving from guard to center, his
natural position, for his senior year. If Aiono continues to improve this year,
he has a good shot at one of the guard spots.
@DuckhunterChris B is a troll:As for being the bigger
draw: Congrats for taking Utah (even though there will be plenty of BYU and USU
fans that will tune in tomorrow evening), but nationally Utah/USC is by FAR the
bigger game. I think you know that, so I'm not sure why you are even
trying to dispute it...
