KW looks really upset. The Aggies will hand the utes their first lose of the
season and we will see that look often this year.I can't wait to hear
the Chris B and the other ute posters spin after the game.
Utah 30Usu 17 We will handle them like the WAC team they are
Mark it down!I will remind you all I called the win
Boise is overrated this year. Washington will handle them at home
Unfortunately I have class until 10:30. Anybody know of a site online I could
catch a re-run of this game? Please and Thank you!
I can't remember a season where there was more uncertainty about how good
the Utes will be. Probably not as good a Chris B predicts and not as bad as the
trolls prognosticate. Biggest question marks are: How much weaker
will the D-Line be? A small step back is okay, a huge step back will cause
major problemsWill the LBs be any quicker?Can the
corners cover?Will Travis W step up and lead or will he play like he
did last year?
@Chris BThink back to just 2010. Remember how Ute fans thought
comments like yours were arrogant hogwash? "We will handle them like the
WAC team they are." It sounds like John White after the game last year,
when he said he couldn't believe they lost to a non BCS team. It is wise
to remember your own past.
Utah will win. No big deal. Utah's offense will be better than last year
and the defense will be prepared. When Whit has time to prepare for mobile
qb's, they have done well.
@ UteinIdahoAgreed, not to mention that Sarkasian is on the hot seat
at UW.Great opening matchups all around.GO UTES>---->
Harmon is correct in his assessment that Ute emotion may be key in hosting the
Aggies. Utah State is much improved from years past and the Utes aren't so
much better than they can just show up and expect to win.
You can feel the doubt and fear. Oh the drama!Go Aggies!
Utah does not expect to just show up & win.Utah expects to show
up and dominate.USU is certainly not the most formidable team Utah
will face this year. Domination sends a message to the entire PAC,
& to Provostan as well.It's time to send that message loud
& clear.No Mercy.
DrUte:I agree completely. The Utes cannot show up to this game and win by
4. they need to play PAC 12 ball and dominate this game.
all the utah "emotion" is a scary thing... for utah!Playing
mad is a bad thing in most cases, you need to play smart and keep your head. On
the edge, but smart. Mad most of the time does not equal smart.utes
win because of the pac12? hahahaha If that was the case they should have won
last year!The utes have not beat the Aggies since joining the
I say this half in jest/trolling, half seriously.I just moved out to
florida and would love to watch the game (serious). I think it will be good and
I want to see both teams and how they will play (serious). Are they on fox or
the new fox 1? Not sure I get the fox 1 station. Now here comes the troll part
-- at least when BYU plays I know I can watch it out here in florida, being a
national brand and being on national tv certainly is nice. Troll time over
now.Good luck to both teams. As a BYU fan even I'm excited for
a good competitive game that I am not a part of.And don't worry
chris b, i did mark it down. I have taken several screen shots of your
predictions so I can see how accurate they are later.
@down and six feet underMere wishful thinking on your pro-BYU
Welcome back to the rival list Aggies...you were gone for too long, we've
missed you.Tonight it's time to send a message ringing through
the Rockies and echoing from Boise to Fresno, that there's a new king on
the MW throne that wins with extreme prejudice. Let the utes be an exhibition of
what happens to any program that disses you as a "fluke"...even if they
are only the PACs annoying kid brother.
@ sky2k1Haha thank you for clarifying your true and your troll
comments! If there were more coug fans out there like you(namely on these
comment boards) I wouldn't despise the BYU fan base NEARLY as much. Honestly though, I'm happy for coug fans such as yourself who get
to watch your teams games on national tv. But, as far as this week, I would MUCH
rather watch a game on the new Fox Sports1 in HD than a terrible ESPNU telecast.
So far I am thoroughly enjoying Fox Sports1. Apparently some people don't
get it on their tv package? I have the middle priced Dish package an I get it
Re: Sky2k1Yeah, you and one billion Chinese can watch your national
brand. Outside of of the Wards, most people do not know who you are. You have
to do something to become nationally relevant. However, that jersey thing
recently came close.Go Utes!
I always love headlines like this one, or quotes to the same effect. Emotion is
the key? Oh, OK. So the U didn't really try last year because they
weren't emotional enough? And if the Aggies win this year (which
wouldn't exactly be a shock), was emotion then not really the key? Or would
it mean the Ags somehow worked up enough emotion themselves?Skill
level, preparation, execution and a little luck will determine the outcome.
I'm pretty sure "emotion" is going to be a wash. It's like the
myth of "momentum" in sports. Hooray, we had all the momentum . . until
we lost. Oh, no! We'd lost the momentum . . until we won. Both
"emotion" and "momentum" as factors in sports are only illusions
lazy sportswriters and fans see in hindsight.
Aggie fans drinking their bloody marys Friday morning, will further be reminded
of their Crimson Clad Big Brother. Hope it goes down smooth, Aggs! You're
going to need it. Go Utes!
I am feeling a win tonight! Go Utes!
The look of despair on Kyle's face is priceless. And the Ute media homer
guy in the picture was looking at his notes to get the wording of his questions
down right:"Coach, you're getting punked by a team your
fans have no respect for. Can you tell us how you managed to have a PAC 12 team
with 3 years of recruiting and yet a D2 QB is the best product you can put on
the field after your glass QB Jordan Wynn went down for he umpteenth
time?""Coach, is this a sign of things to come this season
and will our team be starting a new trend of sitting home during the bowl season
watching other teams that manage to get above .500?""Coach,
did the PAC at least replace the carpet in the basement apartment when WSU moved
out and we moved in?"
ImaCaMan,U really need to get out more, or off the left coast. I
lived in OK for over twelve years, Georgia for five years and FL for three years
and I can attest that they all know who BYU is and they all get confused as to u
and USU. They really do not know which is which. Everyone knows the diff between
Oklahoma and Oklahoma State or Georgia and Georgia Tech and even Flordia and
Florida State, but really, they have NO CLUE about u and Utah State.Go Cougs and Go Aggies!
Do you write your own material Christine? Those are some fabulous knee
slappers! ho ho ho, har har har.
@Christine B:The look of despair is familiar to you. The same look of despair, that TDS fans such as yourself exhibited when
hearing that the Utes were the original BCS busters, and TDS was not. (Hawaii,
shucks!!)Same look when said BCS Busters clobbered an outmatched
Pitt team (BCS victory, and subsequent undefeated season #1!).Same
look of despair when the Utes were invited to yet another BCS bowl game.Same look of despair when Utah punched perennial football power
'Bama in the nose, and earned BCS bowl victory #2 (and subsequent
undefeated season #2!).Same look of despair when Utah was invited to
the Conference of Champions, and TDS was not.Same look of despair
when Utah blasted TDS at LES, 54-10.Same look of despair when Utah
beat TDS for the third game in a row (JD Haslev's face, and subsequent
reaction was priceless!).Same look of despair upon hearing proposed
jersey monikers "Tradition...Spirit...Honor" (How about Humility?)
It will be the same look of despair displayed on the face of every TDS fan
in LES come Sept. 21st! "If you chance to meet a frown...!" lol4
in a row! Go Utes!
@Eddie:"I can attest that they all know who BYU is and they all
get confused as to u and USU. They really do not know which is which."I'm sorry, Eddie. The correct answer is, "They all know who
Yale is!" lolAlso, refer to the article in which your star
running back had no clue who BYU was! "They all know!" lolAnd not being able to tell the difference between Utah and Utah State?
Interesting. Speaks to some simple educating going on...! Besides, I'm
sure your TDS-biases didn't help in conversing on the subject, either. No
matter. Go Yale! And go Utes!
It's going to be very emotional for the Utes when they lose to the Aggies
for the second straight year.Utah's brief flash-in-the-fan
success is quickly fading; their 15 minutes of fame is over.
Sorry jake, but the truth is the truth. Sorry you can't handle the truth.
Maybe that recruit was a little young or he just watched the local teams, but I
was there u were not. BYU is know and u are not.
Utes don't have the talent to compete with a WAC team.
Reading these comments is so much better now that Utah won the actual game. LOL
