@MarsDid you love the choke job? Haven't seen you around since
the game started brother.
Hahaha, look at Stang giving me a taste of my own medicine! There's a good
lad! :)I love Stang. :)
Real Bass, and if the Ags and Cougs lose to the Utes? HO HUM
Should be interesting and entertaining. USU returns a lot of starters, but with
a relatively unknown coaching staff. Utah has a lot of question marks,
including whether Dennis Erickson is still relavent college football. One thing
I have admired about the Aggies over the past several years is that they are
fearless and seem to be totally unphased by loud, hostile environments. Maybe
that was part of the Gary Anderson legacy, but it will be interesting to see if
that attitude continues. If so, it'll be close....
@MarsGive it up buddy. People presenting real facts about this game
that you don't want to hear. Oh how do you make me laugh my simple friend.
Oh how do you make me laugh.
The Utes are more than ready to put Little brother in his place. After warm-up
game #1, with Weber St. being #2, then the real season will begin. But hey - at
least you Aggs have Chuckie, and of course there's the squeaky cheese. It
will help ease the sting of defeat.
UTES LOSE, BOO HOOO
Just like we sprinted full bore into the likes of Star "I play for the
Panthers, now." Lotulelei and won.Get ready, Utes. Little
brother is coming.
Sprinting "FULL BORE" into the likes of Jeremiah Poutasi...will keep
little brother as flat as the doormat Mars speaks of!Hilarious to
hear Mars write as if he's been training with the Aggs football team.
Quite an imagination! Somebody cue "Eye Of The Tiger"...! Sources suggest that the Utes have also been lifting, training, and watching
film - in their new multi-million dollar facility! Advantage: Utes
@utahcountyuteYes, good sir, it will be here and settled tomorrow.
But I will let you have the last word and win the comment section if
you like. "Utes will contain [Keeton] and leave no other options."~stifled chuckling~OK. :)
MarsThanks for the correction on sacks. Git r doneBottom
line....The ags will not be over looked this year. Keeton is a stud but the Utes
will contain him and leave no other options. Kick off can't
come soon enough. Go Utes!
@UteologyYou win the comments section! The real ticket was
mentioning my favorite 'your best team in beat our worst team in '
refrain.Instead of correcting you or showing you real statistics and
figures from the game that illustrate that we both played sloppy, which
I've already done anyway right here in this comment section, and you
won't believe it or won't acknowledge any modicum of credit on
USU's part, I'll just completely agree with you:Yes, the
Aggies won, and yes, you were surprised. Deja vu, mon ami.GO
@Mars_As for fumbles, yes there were quite a few. I counted 6
between the two teams in the same ESPN.com play by play. Utah had great D, no
question. But they lost.-----------Actually, we had one
our worst defenses in recent memory. Combined that with an abysmal offense with
a D2 QB and rookie OC. I'm surprised your best team in 40 years
didn't beat us 54-10 at home.
@The A GameRight, who needs optimism? Apparently not Utah. They have
a barber shop.And watch out Aggies, the Utes are "striping the
stadium." Maybe I'll try and find Waldo.------------Ironically, the barber shop cost more than Romney Stadium and it seats
more.Waldo shouldn't be that hard to find. Just look for
"Tradition, Spirit, Honor" on back of a jersey. He'll be cheering
for Utah State, his new bandwagon team after TCU, Boise, Colorado.
The first of two regular season 'bowl' games for the Utes. It's all they could do after last year's humiliating loss to the
Aggies and also going bowl-less.Nothing could be sweeter than a
repeat of last year.Go Aggies!
I meant to say "last year" in my earlier post. A thousand apologies for
typing so hastily! Hopefully you fine folks caught my meaning.BOTH
teams had sloppy games last year. Utah's got RES going for them this year,
playing at home is always advantageous. Utah has a solid team and is well
coached. Nothing but respect for the Utes.But little brother
ain't skeered. Little brother's been lifting, training, watching
film, and getting more than a little peeved at all the slights against him.
Little brother has embraced his blue collar identity. Little brother smiles
inwardly and uses cold, controlled motivational anger when he hears words like
"fluke." Little brother is tired of being a doormat.Little
brother will walk, then trot, then jog, then run, then sprint FULL BORE into
Salt Lake City.Get ready, Utes. Little brother is coming.
@utahcountyuteNot sure what you're getting at, big fella. I
acknowledge that Keeton got sacked 2 times instead of 3. Per ESPN.com's
play by play, searching on the word 'sacked,' I give you the
following:* Jordan Wynn sacked by Jordan Nielsen for a loss of 6
yards* Chuckie Keeton sacked by Star Lotulelei for a loss of 4 yards,
fumbled, forced by Star Lotulelei, recovered by UthSt Kevin Whimpey*
Jordan Wynn sacked by Bojay Filimoeatu for a loss of 12 yards* Chuckie
Keeton sacked by Joe Kruger for a loss of 5 yards, fumbled, forced by Joe
Kruger, recovered by Utah Nate Fakahafua* Jordan Wynn sacked by Jordan
Nielsen for a loss of 10 yardsJordan Wynn was sacked 3 times, not
CK.As for fumbles, yes there were quite a few. I counted 6 between
the two teams in the same ESPN.com play by play. Utah had great D, no question.
But they lost.A "fluke," he says. Pardon my derisive
snort. I'll throw you this bone, though: If it's a close game this
year, win or lose, last year was no fluke. If it's a huge Utah win, last
year was a fluke.GO AGGIES!
utahcountyute,Actually Utah's season as a whole was a
"fluke." They won every game, they just didn't score as many
points as the other team.
Rawr! Utah played badly this year so by definition they'll play better
this year!Keep the laffs coming, folks. But be warned, I don't
tip my waiters.USU played their fair share of sloppy last year: 2
TOs (to 1 TO on Utah) more penalties, 2 3rd down conversions out of 13 (instead
of 2/17 for the Utes), and a boneheaded drive killing penalty when we were at
the Utah 20.I can play this game too. I'll let you win,
though, it gets boring and tired pretty quick. I just dislike the ignorant
dismissal of how good the Aggies can be.But lest you think I'm
a myopic dunderhead, I think USU is going to have bring their A-game to win this
one. It will not be easy. The Utes don't have slouches on their team. It
will be a tough slugfest. I like USU in a close game.GO AGGIES!!!
MarsYou bring up D production. Actually utah sacked Keeton 3 times
for a loss of 28 yds and recovered 2 of 5 fumbles. Huh?It was a
fluke W over your big brother and nothing more. Expect big brother to not let it
happen again. Duck..... We'll talk in few weeks when the Utes
are 3-0 and coming to Provo. Start planning your trip to Tulsa
@UteanymousSalt Lake City, UtahUteology"If
Utah can't beat USU by 20+ at home then we have a horrible team and we end

Fox Sports is right. With Keeton back, USU shouldn't skip a beat on
offense. That offense that scored 13 points in regulation last year will do so
again. The Utah offense will again score more than USU's points in
regulation, while the Utes won't allow any non-offensive scores. Utes will

about it (and they will), you'll be lucky to convert 2-3 first downs.History doesn't play games. Teams do. And the Ags have a much more
complete and intact team than U.
Right, who needs optimism? Apparently not Utah. They have a barber shop. And watch out Aggies, the Utes are "striping the stadium."
Maybe I'll try and find Waldo.
If Utah can't beat USU by 20+ at home then we have a horrible team and we

State11. Colorado10. BYU
For U fans who are so quick to dismiss other in-state teams as irrelevant, it
must sting a bit to have two out of three national pundits pick USU to beat the
"only relevant program in the state", AT HOME.Ouch.
@Mars_:"Little brother is ready, little brother is motivated,
and little brother is coming for you."It's about time.
We've been waiting for years for little brother to be any significant
challenge whatsoever. You escaped in OT last year, kudos. Remember, though: we
only converted 2 of 17 first downs. That's not going to happen in our
house this year. So watch out...! GO UTES
You gotta love the Aggs' optimism. After being an afterthought for
decades, they escape in one overtime game at home, and suddenly they have the
Utes' number? Get real. The squeaky cheese will taste old and moldy in
Cache Valley come Friday morning...! GO UTES
Utah will be lucky to score a point against Chuckie Keaton.
Hill is no Kerwynn but York will do fine?Psh. That's just your
opinion.Here's mine, but with some substance: USU returns all 5
offensive linemen. I'm pretty sure that I could break for 100 yards on a
Segway behind USU's offensive line.JWIV - 96 yards, 27 carries,
avg 3.6 yards per carry, 0 TD, longest carry: 12 yards. A solid game.Kerwynn "I play for the Colts, now." Williams - 95 yards, 17 carries,
avg 5.6 yards per carry, 1 TD, longest carry: 34 yards. Kerywnn's performance was much more efficient. Both had good games, but
I'd give the nod to Kerwynn. And it was helped by our OL. If you think
Joe Hill won't do anything in this game, think again.Dres
Anderson had 2 carries for 19 yards. Holding your total rushing - without
counting loss of yards due to sacks - to like 145 yards the entire game is a
good defensive output on USU's part.Little brother is ready,
little brother is motivated, and little brother is coming for you.Watch out, Utes. Here we come.
@utahcountyute"Hill is no K Williams and York is due to break
out."And you know these things how? Sounds to me
like you let your wishful thinking come out as statements of "fact". Try
again and this time without the crimson shades.LOL!
Swoop,Come on. There is no way the utes will score 17 points. Be
@utahcountyuteHill is no Williams? You didn't watch many Aggie
games last year then. Hill can burn any one of the Ute defenders in an open
field. I guarantee it. Until the Utes actually prove to me their
offense will be prolific (five offensive coordinators in five years... FIVE), I
gotta give the offensive edge to the Ags.
MarsJohn white had 96 yards and kerwyn williams had 95. Keeton had
94 which was the killer. I think both offenses will be prolific but
the Utes will prevail. Hill is no K Williams and York is due to break out. I can't believe all this discussion about the ags. It will end
In 2012, against three future NFL corners, Keeton was 22 of 32 for 216 yards, 2
TD, O intAgainst Utah's young and inexperienced corners, Keeton
is going to have a field day.Aggies 30Utes 17
The players have said they have to contain Keeton. Once they do that USU
won't be able to do anything.
Seems to me like the "experts get paid alot of money and credit, for simply
taking the previous season and making a few changes, and then calling it an
educated opinion for the next year.
If John White IV didn't have a huge game last year, Kelvin York won't
have a huge game this year.
That's right, Chris knows more than the football experts across the
country. I still cannot believe that Chris is not an anchor on ESPN or FOX
Sports. His predictions are NEVER wrong.LOL
Park city agKeep telling yourself that the Utes don't have any
weapons. Your 1 W out of the last 15 games will be short lived. Look
for York and Murphy to have huge games and the D to be surprising stout. Can't wait
If I am wrong and usu wins I will GLADLY come on here and say "I
was wrong you guys were right"But when I'm right, I gladly
remind you all I was right.And I'll continue to boast about
being a better team in a better conference with better bowl history with better
facilities.We're a better program. And I'll remind you
all year long!
I don't think Chris is too far off on his prediction on this game. I hope
the Utes are overlooked all year long. Can't wait to get it
started with a W on Thursday. Go Utes!
Dare I venture to say that I think the national media knows USU better than the
local media? Probably not, but they aren't blinded by the rose tinted
glasses the local media likes to wear when talking about the utes. Reveng is
only good if you have the personell to pull the job off. USU is expereinced
where it counts the most, O-Line, D-Line, D Secondary, and QB. Joe Hill is a
burner, and watch out for DiMartino! Our WR's have experience from last
year and beyond. Watch out for TVL! Aggies 24Utes 17
All predictions are worthless. Ready for kickoff!Go Utes!
The Aggies will win the the Battle of the Little Brothers.
ute seniors 0-1 against the Aggies. Mark it Down.chrisbe knows less
than the national media. Mark it Down.Aggies start utah's
season off in a bad way again. Mark it Down.The A Game's
comment is the funniest one I have read in a long time. Mark it Down.Go Aggies!!!How in the WORLD is this a personal attack mr
If you can't name any other players on the roster other than Keeton -
without looking - you don't get to say we have no one else around Keeton.
Chris B won't comment on the game AFTER the game. Mark it down.
Enough talk! Let's play! Two days.Go Utes!
BYU fan here. I agree with Chris B's prediction for the game but 8-4
season? Um probably not.
Utah is rated 9th in their league. They will not be 8-4. They may beat Weber
State and Washington State and Colorado. Mark that down.
"2 interceptions by Keeton, Mark it Down"What is Keeton
going to do? Intercept his own passes?
All the Ute players get haircuts at their new barber shop before the game. Mark
U won't contain Keeton. Mark it down.
Chris B is oblivious. To be in contention for a Rose Bowl the Utes will need to
win more than two or three Pac12 games. Considering they play the two weakest
Pac12 oppenents the last two weeks of the season it's highly unlikely
they'll be in contention for anything other than a long winter break from
football once again.
Not a fan of either team, but the Utes won't be 8-4 this year, that's
for sure. Even with the Utes playing the majority of their games RES, where they
have an advantage...they will still lose most games this season.
Last year we all underestimated Keeton.We'll contain him and
they don't have enough talent around him. I think Keeton will
be overwhelmed by what the defense does.2 interceptions by Keeton,
Mark it DownUtah 30usu 17
Utah 30usu 17Utah will be 8-4 with all 4 losses against power
conference teams, and we'll be in contention for the Rose Bowl within the
last 1-2 games of season. This may be the beginning of another 15
game winning streak against our little logan brothers.Go UTES.I'll be there Thursday. Will U?
