I've noticed the old stand by excuses below are being used a little less in 2013:

A) The refs stole the game
B) Utah didn't win, we beat ourselves

A new excuse is emerging among some cougar fans including Alema Harrington... Utah is not the better team they simply are better at getting in to BYU players heads. Seriously people, 4 in a row, 9 of 12, is not psychological trickery it's an obvious trend between the two programs.... Utah is simply better over the past dozen years.

I honestly hope BYU makes it in to a major conference soon, I think it would pay huge dividends for their program and make football even more exciting for the state of Utah on Saturdays.

What in Tucket?
Provo, UT

This was actually a close game and could have gone for BYU. Utah is a good team and should win some Pac 12 games. BYU has a different recruiting base and that could be part of the problem, but they had 8 new offensive linemen this year and it showed. They could not handle Utah. Utah had a better passer, running back, receiver and slightly superior lines.
