@Chrisb"Whittingham said all along it would take a couple years. I
think I'm with 90% of Ute nation who still have total confidence he is the
right man for the job. The South is up for grabs."Typical ute fan predicting pre-season championships. I'm surprised you
didn't complete that thought with a Rose Bowl prediction. Must be a sign
you're losing confidence.Most experts are predicting either a
2-10 or a 3-9 season for the utes in 2013. 90% of ute nation might think
he's the right man but apparently Dr Hill doesn't because he brought
in KW's replacement when he hired Dennis Erickson. Hill's now in
position to make a quick switch when the utes fail to make another bowl game
next season. Pretty smart thinking on his part even if it is a little obvious to
everyone but the paint by numbers crowd.
BYU fans who say they root for my UTES every week except when they play the Y
make me physically ill. I have much greater respect for the Cougar fan who wants
the UTES to lose every game. That's the way I feel about the Y. I want them
to lose every game against any team in any sport they play. That's the
nature of a rivalry. If you don't have that philosophy then in my book your
not a true fan of either team. Respect and loathing are two very different
subjects.I have some optimism for the O-line. Marc Pouvave would
have clearly been a starter from day 1 last year. His injury was 1 of the truly
underrated injuries on our entire team a year ago. Without a doubt the O-line
was the position group on the team that was least equipped to handle the move to
the Pac-12. I really hope that the necessary improvements have been made in both
talent and depth.
Pac 12 FeverI like it but ASU is at least a 50/50 game, they are terrible
in the last half of the season and we were not as bad as they made us look last
September. I also think that we can beat UCLA as long as we contain Hundly
better than we did last year.
RBNI think you wold fine there are a lot of fans lik that on both
sides. Sadly the loudest are the haters. But good luck to the U like coach biff
said, except for one game a year! ;)
OSU..WUcla..L. We split here with first 2 PAC gamesStanford LOregon LUSC. LASU. We haven't beat them yet...LAZ. W.
win one on rd. tough but I think we can do itColor. WWSU. wThat's 4-5 good scenarioWhat think everyone else?
Maybe we should have a winning record in the PAC before we start talking South
Div Championship.Some of you need to get a reality check. Sorry, but
it is what it is.
Diggity,, is that why you point to three byu fans? The self righteous hypocrisy
from the hill is unbelievable sometimes.
RBN. That should be easier the next couple years with the rivalry taking a
break. Hopefully the extremists in both camps will have a chance to cool down,
but I'm not holding my breath on certain of them. (duckpunter, bluto,
worf, etc.) And yes duckie, we understand that there are fans on the Utah side
that are just as bad. Has anyone ever told you that you can't point to
someone else's bad behavior to justify your own.
I like Coach Biff ... a Y fan that can cheer the Utes in all but one game. We
need more fans like that on both sides of the rivalry.
Whoa. Utes got some serious beef up front. Hope they pound everyone they play,
except the Y, of course.
Whittingham said all along it would take a couple years. I think I'm with
90% of Ute nation who still have total confidence he is the right man for the
job. He can talk the Mormon talk when he needs to get get the best local guys,
and he's the last coach to beat national champion Alabama in a bowl
game.The South is up for grabs. Lots of potential with each team,
but a lot of inconsitency potentially with each program as well. Anyone but rival Colorado, has a shot at the south crown.Can't wait til Fall!
