Thank you, Dennis! Kudos to helping mold Travis Wilson into a more confident
PAC-12 passer! Excited for all the good things to come from the both of you.Go Utes!
Most teams would love to have one coach that knows how to build top 5 undefeated
teams.We have TWO.It's only a matter of time before
we're back where we belong.This year we WILL go 8-4 or 9-3.And the winner of the Utah/UCLA game WILL win the South division.Don't call me lucky when it happens, it's happening.Go UTES
I loved the hire from day 1. Guy has a proven track record. I really think his
hire takes us from 5th in the South to 1st or 2nd. Putting up 30 points against
a good USU defense? USU's defense will be as good or better
than the average Pac 12 defense.And our defense is more than capable
of handling most Pac 12 offenses, NOW that our offense will be putting up 30+
points a game.I even think we can split the Oregon/Stanford games,
with Stanford more likely. Oregon is still probably a bit too much, but I think
we'll surprise Stanford.Go Utes!
Remember when byu fans mocked this hire?The Pac 12 title is a REAL
possibility with Whittingham, Ericson, and Sitake. Best 3 coaches
in the state, all on ONE team.Go utes!
Best coaches in the entire state:1. Whittingham2. Sitake3. Erickson 4. Wells5. Bronco
Why didn't it mention how awesome Anae is? Erickson learned a ton from Anae
when they were in Arizona.
Dick, well written article. Keep it up and we may have you converted to the RED
side, you know the University where Prophets graduated from.Dick, I
still have hope or you yet.Erickson ROCK'sUtah by
hmm...I thought Johnson was the quarterback coach. You know him right, beat
'Bama in New Orleans?
Utah did the right thing. They had an offensive coordinator in name only. They
hired one that was a professional. I don't think anyone should be
surprised that this plan is working well. It is great to see someone who was
retired, get to work again using his skills and experience.Ute fans should
keep in mind that this is a short term fix. He won't stay five years.
Then Utah will need an offensive coordinator again...a real one. Of course if
Erickson is unable to work his magic over the full season, the whole staff may
The jury is still out:* Weber was no test* PAC 12 refs, and a
trick play won it for the utes against the Aggies. Aggies were the better team!

did jog my memory, Johnson was the one that also beat BYU 48-24 2008Thanks for the memoriesFarcus
Worf, so you're declaring a "Popinga" victory for USU? I'd
recommend your team look deep into it's bag of tricks when you play the
Aggies. Look hard, you'll see how a real QB plays.
"PAC 12 refs, and a trick play won it for the utes against the Aggies.
Aggies were the better team!"First of all, those were Big 12
refs that officiated the Utah-Utah State game. Yes, those Big 12 officials were
horrible because they made bad calls on both teams! Secondly, the
onside kick is not a trick play. It's been apart of football for a long
time. Y fans consider that onside kick a trick play because it fooled Utah
State's kickoff return team. In football, there is no such thing as a trick
play, the objective in football is to try to remain offensive in your play
calling, strategy, and game plan. In history, the most famous generals out
maneuvered, out flanked, their opposition which resulted in winning the battle.
All football is, is a battle for real estate on the grid iron. Isn't that the point to out smart your opposition?
I thought it was just a y "fan" thing, but It must also be a Texas
thing, as worf is right there with Longhorn fans: "The better team never

Virginia, the rain was. Aggies were the better team until being up

Dennis Erickson has done nothing since Oregon State. CB wants to bash BYU fans
for going decades back in history yet he talks about DE's undefeated great
Miami teams as if they happened yesterday. BTW Miami had far better athletes
than Utah will ever have (many of them through less than honorable means...which
is why Erickson left IMO...he was too honorable a guy for the crooked Miami
program). Since leaving Oregon State Erickson has underperformed at every stop.
I don't see many sundevil fans wishing he were back. I do hope he does well
with the utes, but believing he will because of great teams 20 years ago seems a
Yes. Hiring DE was exactly what the utes needed. He managed to lose to an
average team from the tiny town or Corvalis, Oregon. He will be a one-and-done
waste of money, especially after dropping a game at home by an average osu team.
Can they get a refund? 3-9 is not going to cut it and he won't be happy in
the basement of any conference. I give one year and he's gone back into
