2013 Ute Seniors SWEEP byU 4-0

Told ya!

I respect Van Noy's decision to come back to BYU for his senior year. I don't know if I think it was a good decision, but Van Noy plays with a ton of pride and skill and his desire to go out on top before he leaves BYU is admirable. It hasn't worked out on the field for BYU but Van Noy is a guy anybody would want as a teammate.

The BYU D should be disappointed. They gave up huge chunks of yardage all night long. But BYU has to score more than 13 against its rival. This is a mental thing and the fact that these guys failed to gear up for this game 4 years running is totally pathetic.

Just as Peyton went winless against Florida. A worthy adversary, and I wish nothing but good things for his future!

This was a great game for the Utes to show how far they've come with two full Pac 12 recruiting classes under their belt. It will be interesting to see the differences in each team again in two years as both teams go their seperate ways in terms of how they recruit and how well each can stock the rosters.

When will Bronco finally compliment an opposing team he loses to, especially the U. The U is a much more athletic team and since moving into the PAC 12 they are undefeated and their depth and skill level is increasing. Bronco appears to be a poor sport. "Evenly matched"... Tired of the excuses. Blechen is out yet no one made an excuse for the U. Calling that penalty on Rowe was chicken those plays happened all game from both sides. No more excuses. Be a fan and a good sport.

Nicely Done!!

Go UTES!!

I'm a Cougar. Our offense isn't very good, especially without Williams. Hill needs to share the ball. He's wasting Hoffman this year. Our Defense is fine. But Utah always seems more collected in these games. They keep their cool while BYU just plays catch up. "He gave us a chance to win, that's all I can ask for." What? Most coaches ask for the win, not just a chance to win. ugh.

You win. It was a good game. Congratulations on stepping up with a quality win. Now sadly we shall not have this kind of great football again.

Goodbye.

KVN decision to come back to complete his schooling was the right call. He is setting a great example for kids with similar backgrounds. If Kyle can go to BYU and complete his four year degree, then so can they.

KVN played spectacular last night. He'll get over this loss as will the rest of Cougar nation. Next up is a big challenge athletically when Middle Tennessee State comes to town. While many fans dismiss small schools, MTSU has a lot more speed than either Utah or BYU has and could easily beat the Cougars. What MTSU lacks is discipline. The Cougars need to rebound and move forward.

The Utes need to get better as well. UCLA is a beast. They may have the best passing QB in the PAC12. I thought his game against Nebraska was better than Manziel's was against Alabama. Its fortunate Utah has a bye to heal and prepare. Good luck to the Utes the rest of the way. Hope all Ute fans could equally wish BYU the same.

I feel heartbroken for KVN. Even though the stat line won't look amazing, he had Wilson wrapped up at least 3-4 times and disrupted the offense for the entire game. For a lesser quarterback at least two of those would have been sacks. Unfortunately, Wilson isn't a lesser quarterback--he's the real deal and certainly seems capable of bringing the Utes out of the PAC12 cellar. Go work Utes, you certainly have our number.

Hadley's absence had no bearing on the outcome. Beck actually had a very good game as his replacement. I feel bad for Van Noy, but he'll be playing on Sundays next year barring injury this year.

The D played well enough to win. Once again the offense didn't hold up their end. Red Zone offense was pathetic! And I put most of the blame of that on the shoulders of Anae.

Let the wise observe and understand.

* BYU vs Utah
* USC vs Utah State
* Arizona State vs Wisconsin
* Utah vs Utah State

Deceptive, corrupt politics. Hmm? Evenly matched teams all going PAC 12 way.

IMO--Utah will not do well in the PAC. Not because of less talent, or coaching, but corrupt politics.

"Cougar linebacker Kyle Van Noy will end collegiate career without win against Utah." How sad. KVN talked to the local media about his "hate" for Utah and and Utah's "hate" for byu. He also claimed that he returned for his senior year because he had "unfinished business." I wonder what he was referring to...hmmmmmmmm. Oh, well. Another year and another Utah win over byu.

Can we get a sound bite from JD Falslev, please.

Here is a comment you posted on July 26th.

Not sure the utes will finish ahead of Colorado.
After a beating from the Aggies, and Cougars, there won't be much gas left in the tank.

Care to man up and admit you were wrong? The great thing about these posts is they are in writing and people can look at your comments. You talk a lot of trash and glad to see my team make you eat your words.

Right Snookie - and how about the blatant pass interference on the last play of the game that wasn't called?

@worf:

Your comment about corrupt politics dictating the outcome of those games is absurd. Not to mention extremely desperate. Try to be a reasonable loser, not a sore one.

If there was a pass interference call on the last play of the game. It would have been called on the BYU receiver that grabbed the Utah corner's jersey and pulled him down before he had a chance at the pick. Now that it's all said and done. The refs called a good game!

Admit it now Tom and no more excuses! Utah was the better team last night! They got the job done!

I agree! It was clearly offensive pass interference, you can't pull a defender on top of you while you're trying to make a catch!

Unless, of course, Utah is able to hold that 6th place spot in the PAC and remain bowl eligible -- Kyle may have one more shot in the Kraft Hunger bowl....

Corrupt politics? What in the world are you talking about?

As to your second assertion regarding evenly matched teams...you do know the difference between fact and opinion, right?
