As a Ute fan I think the Utes pull out a win but I don't know why many think we will dominate the Beavers. This is a team that won 9 games last year and has some good talent on it. I think Mannion will be able to throw on our secondary and just because their O-Line has issues doesn't mean it will automatically be bad this game. In fact, look what happened when BYU re-shuffled their O-Line against Texas. BUt like I said, I think the Utes win but by a close margin. I also think we haven't seen Utah play to their full potential which excites me as a fan. Go Utes!

The win-loss record last year was not a reflection of our Defense but a reflection of how bad our Offense was. But don't forget that even in a down year for Utah we still beat BYU ; )

Truth be told, Reilly has looked much better than Orchard. I'm more concerned about that second defensive tackle and I'd like to have a third DT that is also effective. So far, I haven't seen it.

Additionally, our D ends had a lot of trouble last year with the read option. That could be a problem for the Utes. But, first things first. Beat the Beavers!


Bruin: "There is not more DII, you have to understand the changes. Regardless, this is why I don't like Utah fans, you quiver at the small things."

I assume you meant "no more DII," and yes, there is a Division-II in NCAA, Dixie State University is a member. And you just proved yourself to be the same type of person as the Utah fans you "don't like", "quivering at the small things." You were the one that brought the distinction up, although you were wrong about it.

The jury is no longer out. The U's defensive line is mediocre at best. The loss of Joe Krueger has hit the Utes hard. Orchard was a flop tonight. Reilly was predictably tough. The others just weren't good enough. And that was against a depleted offensive line.
