Kruger and Pitta certainly deserve the rings they'll be getting - great games by them both.

A Safety! The game came down to a Safety. I couldn't stop laughing watching the Big Brother out smart his Little Brother.

Reminded me of the "Holy War" Utah always taking the advantage over Little Brother.

Pita did well nice catching the TD, Kruger's QB sack was awesome. I actually wanted the Ravens to win because of how the 49er's treated Alex Smith.

Alls good, good game for a Super Bowl

Pitta's touchdown and other important receptions were clearly the greatest impacts from a player with Utah ties.

Congratulations to Pitta, Kruger, and Kemoeatu! Way to represent our local universities.

Loved Pitta's game, 49ers were award of him and opened up some great lanes for Boldin. His TD was simply because his cover guy was expecting too much of an out route. Pitta simply read coverage stopped, yawned and caught a Superbowl TD!! Nice read by Flaco.

Uhhhmm Farcus, Utah is the little brother. I know you want that title, but you need more fans and shouldn't have sold your sole to back into the PAC 12. Plus you've gotta stop the insecurity...that's little bro. syndrome.

What was that thing Kruger did at the end of the tackle for a loss? Doesn't UU even teach their guys how to do a sack dance? He needs real lessons from Keisel and Ziggy.

Congrats also to David Reed (Utah). He may not have dressed due to his leg injury, but still gets the Superbowl Ring! Three Utes getting the bling this year!

Ummmm 3grandslams, BYU is the little brother. I know that you want that title so you can feel good about the state of your downward spiraling football program. Utah didn't sell their sole to the Pac-12. They were invited to join and it was a good business decision to join. Plus Utah gets to play a step up in competition, which is something BYU shies away from.

BYU on the other hand had a tantrum when Utah took their Pac-10 invitation and had a knee-jerk reaction to go indy. Big brother's don't have tantrums like that. Also big brother's don't lose consistently to little brother 3 years in a row, 8 of 11, and losing the series 56-34-4. So your getting mixed up! Utah is the big brother and byu is the annoying little brother. Your comment only shows your insecurity which displays your "little brother syndrome".

Alex Smith tried and tried and still couldn't get it like what happened last year. He was SO close getting to SuperBowl. But Kemoeatu did it with no problem on his first start for 49ers and made it to SuperBowl with no problem but too bad cuuldn't finish it this time. I rooted only for Pitta and glad he got his TD. 49ers came so close and better luck next time. And why this little and big brothers garbage talk? Utah can talk whatever they want and they go ahead smell those dead black roses and better get use to it, ask Zona schools.

David Reed did dress and play #16 was on kickoff and punt teams

Pitta and Kruger both had good games. Obviously scoring a td is huge so that was probably the single best play by a player with Utah ties but the sack Kruger had on a 3rd and I think goal that forced SF to kick a fg rather than score a td was very big. Edge Pitta because he scored but pretty close since Krugers sack may have kept 4 more points off of the board.

Pitta's play was better (even with the huge drop on 3rd down)because he played at BYU.

Little disappointed about the lack of understanding with regards to Ngata and his contribution. He never has big sack stats. But he became the highest paid defensive lineman a couple of years ago because he stops the run an usually requires a double team which made it easier for Ray Lewis et al to roam from sideline to sideline unmolested. San Francisco couldn't run the ball until he got hurt. They only ran to his side twice and never got things going until later.

Here we go again. The players with local ties brings out the red and blue bashing. There will never be just another Utah and BYU article without this stuff I guess. I mean the venom is so strong that when I comment on BYU minus malicious intent, it better not be what BYU fans don't want to hear lest I get the lynch mob tracking me down.

The local players from Utah, BYU, and Ngata (Highland High) were a factor in the Super Bowl (especially Kruger and Pitta).

"Alex Smith tried and tried and still couldn't get it like what happened last year. He was SO close getting to SuperBowl."

As the Old Bill Marcroft would say "Check it"

The 49ers last year made it to the NFC Championship game against the Giants, It was Alex Smith at the helm that got them there as Q. The punt returner for the 49ers muffed a punt that the Giants recovered and then kicked the game winning field goal.
This year Alex took the 49ers to 8 and2 before his concussion. So Mr Dew when you call someone out on a team sport saying he "couldn't get it" be fair about it. Its like blaming a field goal kicker for loosing a game when he gets three chances to make it. Its a team sport DEW.

Smith will get his Ring mark my words

@ Scott Farcus

I liked your comments but Alex was 6-2 as the starter this year not 8-2. And getting a ring is hard to come by. I hope Alex gets it as a starter someday but I would go easy on the "mark my words" comment.

"As the Old Bill Marcroft would say "Check it"
