I can admit when I am wrong, and wrong I was! I did not think BYU even had a
chance in this game, and I certainly didnt think Texas would "submit to
(BYU's) will"Texas clearly did not know how to defend the
Read Option, and BYU executed it to perfection, over and over again. I dont
know what to expect from BYU in their next game, but Utah's D knows how to
defend the Read Option.
"Van Noy said Saturday night that the Sept. 21 meeting against Utah is
BYU’s 'Super Bowl.'"Hmm... now where have I
heard that notion before?
Good win, but I wouldn't expect Sitake to crash three players on the
runningback on every option play. Hill will have to throw the ball effectively
to win, so I expect Hoffman's play to be the X factor against the
Having extra time against Virginia sure went well for byU.Did you
see what athletes that go fast and hard did against Virginia?Oregon
59Virginia 10I guess its one thing to say you are a go fast go
hard offense.Another thing to BE it.
After Utah beats byu, it will be a SWEEP for the 2013 seniors.In
fact, SECOND sweep of the last 15 years for Utah over byu.Do you
know how far back you have to go to get the last 2 byu 4-0 sweeps over Utah?Far.Very far.Very very far.The only
national program in Utah, is UTAH
@STgSLC, here is where you have heard something similar. In whether Ute fans
would rather beat BYU or go bowling "The blog Ute Football Central posed
that question to Twitter followers earlier this month. According to the blog
post, 64 percent of Utah fans would rather beat BYU than go to a bowl game,
according the poll." Yes, the Des News wrote about it, but it was a Ute fan
It wasn't this month, in fact it was quite a few months ago. Go COUGS!
@the guy from Odgen with two accounts"The only national program
in Utah, is UTAH"You're funny...
I think Kyle said it was his super bowl not the teams.
Can someone please explain the following to me (from this article)..."Williams suffered an unspecified back injury against the Longhorns, but
both Williams and Mendenhall said Saturday night that Williams is
“fine.” The sophomore running back sent a message on Twitter Sunday
that read, “I will be ready for the Utah game.”So I saw
the end of the game where it looked like Williams was being bent (backwards) in
half by the Texas pile... but I have only heard from the media that Williams
"says he is fine"... until now. Does the DNews actually have a
verifiable source that says he has "an unspecified back injury" or was
that just squeezed in there to get people excited?
"KVN/Hoff want 0-4 against UTAH"Not sure what this means?
Does it mean Kyle Van Noy and Cody Hoffman want to be 0 and 4 against Utah? Was
it a typo and should be "went"? No, that doesn't make sense, but
what does it mean?While I'm not a big fan of some of the
meanness from some fans on both sides, the BYU/Utah game is often fun to watch
as it is difficult to predict because of the emotional content. Unfortunately I think some BYU fans think BYU has to win to validate their LDS
faith (how many LDS go/went to Utah? I'm one) and some LDS haters become
Utah fans to validate their hatred of LDS. I think this is a mistake on both
sides, it would be nice to just have it be a nice in-state rivalry football game
without any other underlying meaning. How wonderful it would be to be able to
graciously welcome Utah fans to the BYU tailgating area and just enjoy each
others company on game day! Most of the people that go to Utah and BYU are great
2013 Ute Seniors SWEEP byU 4-0Ogden, UTYou may want to
remember the old prayer "Lord, make my words tender, soft and sweet, for
tomorrow I may be forced to eat them."I think Texas has 5 star
athletes, and I saw what go hard go fast did for them. Looking forward to
seeing if the go hard go fast guys can have as much fun with the superior
athletes from the team up north.
What will it be a 34-31 type of game, a doink of the goal post, a route, a
blocked FG attempt, a Harline is still open, a 4 and 18, or George is still
running with the side show of the phone gate, Max's speaking his mind. Then
the two year lay off. BYU fans can start the holy war smack. utah has the
beavers then the war. can't wait.
2013 Ute Seniors SWEEP byU 4-0 - I'll let you in on a little
secret:utah is no Oregon. u'll find that out in Eugene in
November. Good luck on Saturday against the Beavers. They might come to RES a
little chippy after last week.
Utes be trolling hard today!
Excellent Game.Nice to see the O-line not just show up but dominate.Taysom Hill ran circles around Texas.One dimensional
offense: ToDo: Add a passing attack.Taysom has the legs. He has the
arm too, just needs more practice passing in game situations. Almost
there: One step left for the complete package.
"I dont know what to expect from BYU in their next game, but Utah's D
knows how to defend the Read Option."Sure. Utah did a great job
defending Chuckie Keeton, didn't they?
@ those who say the only national program in utah is Utah....Here is
Missouri, I haven't seen any mention at all of Utah beating up on Weber
state... but I have seen plenty of national coverage of BYU beating up on Texas.
In fact, I see that ESPNU is replaying the BYU game right now.Texas
looked like they were unprepared to play BYU. I am sure Utah will be prepared
to play in 2 weeks. Should be a great game.Biggest question I have
right now is... Would I rather have Utah beat USC and stick it to kiffen or see
Utah be one of the few teams that USC is able to beat this year.... tough
Well B (Yes your new names don't hide you)That taste of humble
pie didn't last long.Why not click on the Utah pages and go
tell those people all about your fantasies.We're on sabbatical
for two weeks...take a break, develop new material for after the game, do
something constructive, walk the dog, learn to quilt, learn a foriegn
language.Just try and understand...there's no game this week.
We don't care.
And now begins BYU's two week preparation for their desperate attempt to
defeat the Utes. Utah doesn't have the luxury of scheduling a bye before
the rivalry game, but then, it shows that the Utes have moved on to bigger and
better things. For BYU, this is their bowl game for the year. For
Utah, it is just another game as they prepare for the challenging PAC 12
schedule which includes playing two teams ranked in the top five.Go
@ 2013 Ute Seniors SWEEP byU 4-0,Don't know what the score of
the Oregon - Virginia game has to do with the article. In case you missed it,
BYU played a nationally ranked Texas team (projected by many to be the top team
in their conference) full of 5 star recruits, and gave them one of their worst
beat downs in school history. Of course many will argue that it was
an overrated Texas team, just like they did with another nationally ranked team
that BYU beat a few years back. It is also possible that the teams were actually
good teams that lost their will (and offensive weapons) due to beatings that
they were given by BYU. It has happened before (even to BYU), where a team
suffers a particularly devastating loss early in the season, and then
underperforms for the remainder of the season, feeling that the season is lost.
Either way, it would make sense to keep comments on subject related to the
article. The world is a beautiful and sensible place without crimson colored
glasses. Things suddenly start to make a lot more sense.
BYU had its A game against a quality 15th ranked Texas. It was fun to watch,
perhaps one of the best games in BYU history. BYU has the potential to destroy
Utah on Sep 21st. The cream puff opponent Weber State victory does nothing for
Utah. The very lucky onside kick against Utah State is the only reason the U is
2 and O. Utah will play twice as hard against BYU than any other opponent to
make the game interesting for the first half but then BYU's defense and
offense will kick in for a blowout. The three year U win streak will end on Sep
Based on the fans comments, the Utes are already looking towards BYU and
forgetting about next Saturdays game. Does that mean they are anticipating a
big loss? and hoping for a bright spot again BYU? It appears the
fans know they will lose on Saturday. I think it would be more beneficial if
they actually supported their team rather than just opposed everything BYU.
"For Utah, it is just another game..." Yeah, right...
LOLThis is Utah's 2nd and final bowl game of the regular
season... We know one thing... They are worried, very worried after
seeing what BYU did to Texas.Prepare ye the excuses!
@ NevadaCougKeeton is threat through the air, in addition to being a
great runner. As of right now, the same cannot be said about Hill. I'm
sure Utah will be more than ready for BYU's run game which means Hill will
have to win it with his arm. (22-66, 304 yards, 33.3%, 304 yards, 4.6 ave., 1
TD, 2 INTs) I like Utah's chances.
Sammyg at it again:"They are worried, very worried after seeing
what BYU did to Texas."--Then they watch the Virginia game, and
their minds are put at ease. So funny how that horrible performance get's
swept right under the rug. Oregon throttled UVa.
Get ready for you're anual beatdown, utes!
"After big win over Texas, Cougars have an extra week to prepare for
Utes"BYU is going to need that extra week to prepare for big
brother. Meanwhile Utah has a conference game this week to tune up their offense
and defense in a live game situation. Travis Wilson looks like a darn good QB so
far. In fact he's one of the best QB's in the nation right now.I believe Utah will once again beat BYU. The main reason is, BYU's
offense is very one dimensional. The Cougs have a solid run game and a running
back as their quarterback. Taysom Hill is a horrible passing quarterback. For
Utah to win, all they need to do is contain Taysom Hill and shut down the run
game. Like they've done in years past. Taysom Hill can't hit a broad
side of a barn when throwing.
'Spokane UteSpokane, WASammyg at it again:"They are worried, very worried after seeing what BYU did to
Texas."--Then they watch the Virginia game, and their minds are
put at ease. So funny how that horrible performance get's swept right under
the rug. Oregon throttled UVa.'No one should be overly
confident when BYU has laid three eggs in a row to Utah. That said, while
Virginia was a bad if not awful loss, beating Texas says a lot more than beating
Virginia and then losing to Texas would have. But, I wouldn't be at all
surprised to see the Utes come in with minds at "ease" rather than the
Super Bowl approach they've taken in the last three...
GoRed"Utah doesn't have the luxury of scheduling a bye
before the rivalry game, but then, it shows that the Utes have moved
on..."* laughs hysterically *Despite Ute fans'
frantic and emotional denials, we'll know that the Utes have "moved
on" when they disappear completely from all BYU articles.The
fact that you're here claiming that you've "moved on", while
completely ignoring your conference-opening PAC 12 game, is proof positive that
U have not, and never will, move on.The truth is, you'd rather
finish dead last in the PAC, than lose to BYU.
I'm going out on a limb and predicting a BYU win in two weeks. Utah
hasn't proven anything yet. A tough opener against a decent USU team and a
blowout against... Weber? Big deal.Likewise BYU lost to a weak
Virginia and had a big win against a very under performing Texas team. Texas
was over rated and the win proves nothing yet.Anyone can win the
rivalry game on any given year. Rankings don't matter, W/L records
don't matter. Neither QB is "proven" and both teams have
weaknesses that can be used against them. It will all play out on
the field. But I still predict a BYU victory.
Re: GoRed"Utah doesn't have the luxury of scheduling a bye
before the rivalry game, but then, it shows that the Utes have moved on..."
Games the Utes have played the week before BYU2013,
Oregon State (if that's not a bye I don't know what is)2012, USU
(usually considered a gimme, but they have been good recently)2011, a
legitimately difficult opponent2010, SDSU2009, SDSU2008,
SDSU2007, New Mexico2006, Air Force2005, New Mexico2004,
Wyoming2003, Wyoming2002, WyomingI don't think you
need a bye when the week before BYU you are playing Oregon State, Wyoming, SDSU,
or New Mexico. Thanks for having "moved on"... wait, then why are you
commenting on a BYU article?
Lets see, who's defense has more athletes and WILL finish ranked higher
than the other, Utah or Texas? Hmmm...that's a tough one. Forgive us ute
fans, if BYU has far more respect for Texas than U. One dimensional or not, try
and stop it utes. Your defense is weak, and will "bend to our will" just
as Texas, who is better up front and in the secondary than U. Btw, for those
pointing to Oregon...look at how much they run versus pass...avg 425 a game on
the ground. Are they one dimensional, or "bend people to their will"
also? All the ute trolls making excuses about byes, one dimensional bologna,
Utah can defend the read option...do u realize how scared you sound? Panic is
setting in as Utah sees superior athletes to theirs get brutally
"curb-stomped" by BYU. Btw utesies...Texas knew BYU was one dimensional
too, especially as the game progressed...still couldn't stop it. Enjoy your
beaver cupcake, because next week U get the Williams-Hill Express.
I love how Ute fans are so quick to point out that Virginia got worked by
Oregon.I can't wait to see how many points Oregon puts up on U.
Cougsndawgs,Whatever degree of importance we Ute Fans put on the byu
game is brought on by comments like yours...And it's those comments that
make our domination that much sweeter.Call us in a week, we have
bigger fish to fry right now.Go Utes!
KVN will run all over them Utes comes the 21st!!! Let go Cougs!!!
UVA game: first time executing an offense. Lots of communication and
unfamiliarity in execution.UT game: fired up.utah game:
see UT game comment, add chip on shoulder.Should be a good one,
utah is a fine program.Oh, and pray for no rain delay - ok ?
That was a spectacular and much needed win. As much fun as it was to watch, I
don't know if that's how I want to win though. Take away Hill's
rushing TD's and the outcome could have been very different. Hill's
not going to get looks like that every game. All it takes is one hit and
we're down a QB. Hill desperately needs to work on his accuracy and the
receivers need to catch the dang ball. As good as the defense looked, there are
obvious signs of weakness at the corner position. Every time Texas needed a big
play you knew it was going far left. I cringed every time. Thank heavens for a
good safety. I'm worried of a Chuckie Keeton who will pick us apart if our
CB's are having a slow day. Go Blue!Congrats U on
the "big" win over whats-there-faces. I think the 21st is going to be a
Oregon did throttle Virginia. I don't think the Ute fans should crow over
that, because a similar fate awaits the Utes... several times this season on
national TV. It should really help with recruiting. Don't you love being a
member of the PAC-12? The Urban Meyer effect is wearing off. Coach Whit is a
good coach, but he has to step up or he'll go the way of Texas' DC.
He can run up the score on Weber State all he wants, a potential loss to BYU and
another bowl-less season will not go over well with the wealthy and powerful in
the Crimson Club.
"In the latest national statistics, Williams is No. 2 in the country in
rushing, followed by Hill at No. 5." -- DN-----------How's Hill in passing? 122 ranked QB in the nation. That is what KW
would describe as abysmal.In two games BYU has shown that it has no
passing game. They have two weeks to teach Hill how to throw. Good luck!
Spokane UteUnfortunately for U, your time-line is out of order.BYU was still adjusting to a new offensive scheme versus Virginia, and a
two-hour lightning delay after the 1st quarter, followed by continual rain and a
puddle-drenched field through the remainder of the game didn't help with
establishing any sort of offensive rhythm.With a little fine tuning
a week later, BYU found its rushing offense against one of the most storied
football programs in the country.With a couple more weeks for BYU to
add a passing attack to an obviously very good rushing attack, BYU's
offense looks to improve even more for their 3rd game.
@WON84Utah will be up for the game, make no mistake. I don't
think it's possible not to be. Quite honestly it wouldn't suprise me
it Utah beat's BYU, or vice versa. In a rivalry like this it can go either
way. Some times one or two plays, or questionable call(s) can make all the
difference in the world. We shall see, but right now I'm more concerned
with Oregon St. One game at a time. As far as Oregon vs. Utah goes,
let's wait and see. The last time Utah went to Oregon it was a very good
and close game. Also, USC was supposed to pound Washington St. Saturday night.
How did that work out for the Trojans? Nothing should come as a huge suprise or
a gimmie in college football; that's the beauty of it!
In last 10 seasons, 7 players have rushed for at least 180 yards vs Texas, two
on Saturday:- BYU's QB Taysom Hill (259) and RB Jamaal Williams
(182).After playing two FBS opponents, and with most FBS teams still
playing the soft portion of their schedule, BYU currently has two of the top
five rushers in the country:1. Kasey Carrier 345 yds (UNM)2.
Jamaal Williams 326 yds (BYU)3. Andre Williams 318 yds (BC)4. Alex
Collins 303 yds (Ark)5. Taysom Hill 301 yds (BYU)As incredible
as that stat is, this stat may be even more incredible:At one point
in the game versus Texas, BYU ran TWENTY-SEVEN straight rushing plays.As a team, BYU is 3rd in rushing:1. Oregon 425.0 ypg2.
Wisconsin 390.0 ypg3. BYU 368.5 ypg
Phil Steele's Top 25 Game Grades (Team Performances) from Week 2 1. BYU 118.32 (game grade) 3. Oregon 114.84 9. Utah St 98.8420. Utah 92.6821. Oregon St 92.24"It is well documented
that I was very high on Texas this year, but last week was not the best
situation for them traveling to altitude while playing a BYU team that was off a
misleading game against Virginia. Kudos to the Cougars who rushed for an amazing
550 yards including QB Taysom Hill who ran for 259, the 2nd most by a QB in the
last 10 years. Their dominating 40-21 win over the Horns gives them the top
performance of the week!"-Phil Steele
@goredSo how "challenging" do oregon state and usc look now?
Weren't those 2 of the 5 "ranked" teams utah "fans" were
bragging/whining about playing? osu lost to a 1-aa team, that is right a 1-aa
team (lol), and usc just scored a whopping 7 points against one of the worst
defenses in the country, one that hadn't given up any fewer than 19 points
in a game in several years, and lost. Neither is ranked any longer and neither
should be, they are both bad, very bad.Thus far utah's games
played schedule is ranked 138th in the nation. Pretty "challenging"
I'll admit. I also like your sad and pathetic attempt at pre-emptive excuse
making.You utah "fans" are so predictably deluded and
hypocritical that it is almost to easy to rip one of your posts to pieces.
@ RockwellYep, you beat one of the most storied football programs in
football, but lost to one of the worst teams in the ACC. Utah-BYU could go
either way, don't kid your self.
Wilson will be running for his life on the 21st. Van Noy has a bone to pick and
I would not want to be on the receiving end. Utah's o-line will not be
able to contain Van Noy and Fua, and Kafusi, etc. I predict a long night for
the little utsies on the hill. CB can write it down.
With two of the top 5 rushers in the country the Utah defense will be wondering
what hit them.
There's the duck!Blow your horn man...In 2 weeks we'll
send you back into hiding. lol.
We're going to hammer the Utes like we do every year.
How I think it will go down:Utah is great at stacking the box and
stopping BYU's running game and cause an effective pass rush. They will
start out the same again, and Taysom will need to hit some easy passes to get
some small yards. Taysom is great at selling his fake handoffs, and he will get
some good runs in the first half, but nothing like what we saw against TX.
First half will be low scoring, anywhere from 0-14 for either team, but I expect
BYU will get a couple field goals, while U will take advantage of weaker
secondary and have a couple big plays.Prediction: U will be up at
half (10 to 3)Second half will be totally different. GFGH will wear
down Ute defense, while KVN and company will wear down their offense. By the
end of the game, BYU will run at will, and score in dramatic fashion--Ammon
Olsen may be utilized for some passing plays in the fourth.Prediction: BYU wins 52 to 13Utah will not get to capitalize on
BYU slop like the last 3 years. U are KVN's and Hoffman's unfinished
Congrats to BYU on the great win. Taysom ran like a mad man, and KVN and Co.
were brutal on D. Trolls on both teams make me sick. So much hate towards
eachother and each team! I love the BYU/Utah rivalry, and I'll talk some
smack just like the next guy, but the way you all attack eachother sounds like a
5th grade fight out in the school yard. GIVE IT A REST!I am a Utah
man through and through, but at least I try to show some class and decency to
opposing teams. Good luck BYU except on the 21st! Watch
out for Tenny Palepoi down there in the trenches, he clogs up the middle to
leave the edges guarded by Orchard and Reilly!GO UTES!!!!
Travis Wilson is #8 in the nation in pass efficiency... Hill is ranked
122!....Hill is a horrific passer! I take Utah by 2 touchdowns in this game.
It's no secret that the Utes will not let Hill beat them with his feet.
He's completed a whopping 33% of his passes on the year. Ha ha!!!! Tim
Tebow even has better passing stats than that and he's out of football
According to Down Under:I predict a long night for the little utsies
on the hill--------Now that's a shocker, totally stunning! You might want to "mark it down" in pencil.
@ekuteI didn't "blow" any horn, I simply pointed out
more predictable utah "fan" delusion and hypocrisy. utah
"fans" whining about BYU having a bye before the utah game, as if it was
some sort of devious planning in the schedule is ridculous considering utah
scheduled itself 7 home games and only 5 road games this year. Was that also
underhanded in an attempt to gain advantage? Or how about utah having 5 pac12
home games and only 4 pac12 road games? Yes I know that is a product of a 9 game
schedule but still I don't see utah "fans" commenting about that
advantage.It's always the same with utah "fans",
whining and lamenting over some other teams supposed "underhanded"
advantage while ignoring utah doing similar, if not even more advantageous,
things with their schedule. LOL!
I'm still trying to decide if a bye week is a good thing or a bad thing for
BYU. Good for healing bumps a bruises, especially for Williams and
Hoffman. Good for game plan. Bad for losing momentum from a big win.In pre-season, I thought Utah would have it's hands full against a tough
Beaver squad, but they didn't look good against E. Washington or Hawaii.
Saturday should be an easy win for the Utes.I expect the rivalry
game to be within 7 points just like most of the BYU v Utah games the last
decade. But I am hoping for a blowout and for BYU to unleash another 500+ yard
RedUte 08,Nice try in making the BYU fans feel bad. We don't. When
you can put a muzzle on Chris B, and Ekute then we may see some more civil
dialog but until then see the hatred continue.I used to be a huge Utah
fan and cheered for them regularly. When I started reading these threads my
opinion of Utah and their fan changed forever more.

@ RedUtes08:Just as you are red thru and thru, I'm blue thru
and thru. I must admit that you do show some class, and it's much
appreciated. There are some hard-core fans (i.e., Chris B) on each
side of the red/blue rivalry that go beyond being objective, and which start
making it hard to like "the other side". Then occasionally, I read a
well thought-out comment like yours coming from that side that helps me to
remember that civility in the rivalry is still possible. Thanks for
doing your part.

@uteologyThat might be the weirdest and most off topic post in the
history of the site. What was your point? Are you trying to say wsu has a great
defense? They've played 2 games and usc is so obviously bad that utah may
have held them to one score also. wsu had not allowed less than 19 points in a
game in several years, that means they have had an absolutely horrible defense
for all those years. Maybe they might be good this year, maybe, but it is to
early to know. Go back to making sense because you failed miserably
@tomahawk pinkWhat does that have to do with anything? utah played
weber state. Are you going to get back to me at the end of the season when weber
is a 1 win team from the 1aa ranks? Did you post just because you felt like you
had to say something, anything, even if it didn't make a lick of sense?
Tators,I could not agree more. Chris B is the ONLY reason I now hate
Utah. I used to be an ardent fan but no longer.@Spokane Utsie, I am glad
that the ute nation will be fine without me....and BYU will be just fine without

will realize that they are not as relevant as they think. I guess you can throw
fact at them all day long and they still don't see it.
@ Chris B:You keep making the same silly little statements an
several different articles about BYU being incapable of beating Utah. In just
12 more days, you will find out just how totally untrue that really is. Hasn't anyone explained to you how juvenile it is to end all your
comments with a "LOL"? People are already "laughing out
loud". But it's at what you say and how you say it, rather than the
other way around.

Arizona State but they probably could have scheduled it whenever they wanted to.
As for the extra week, seldom have I ween it help the Cougars to have an extra

after their loss to Oregon State! Go Beavers!Go Cougars!Go

about your win over Weber this week.
"It's laughable that you left these little items out of your

teams, 8 PAC-12 teams, 9 BIG teams, 7 ACC teams, and 6 Big-12 teams have SOS in
the 100's right now. See, how it works in college football is that teams
from the big 5 conferences play most of their non-conference games against
