That makes sense. Utah state has clearly shown they are the second best program
in the state the last few years. Byu is third, but weber is gaining. Or more
correctly, byu is sinking.
All ute fans are in support of the aggies this weekend. And I know aggies
support Utah as we battle ucla.
Why on earth would Bronco even consider having Williams play after a concussion
and a spinal stinger in the Utah game?!?! That smacks of recklessness in my
opinion. Recovering from a stinger takes more than a couple of weeks.Hope the kid doesn't get injured.
Yes!!!!Utah State should be favored. They will be better prepared and better
coached than BYU. The Cougars just don't put in the time.
As far as this Ute is concerned - Friday night we are all Aggies.Go
Hey "Utah > usu > byu"You forgot the last part of
the equation.EVERYONE ELSE IN FBS > Utah > USU > BYU At least I respect the other school enough to capitalize it, more than I
can say for most fans.
CougarSunDevil, what does that say about your cougars?
We dominated Byu and Weber and the utah aggies and that means the utah aggies
will dominate byu because we dominated the utah aggies and weber to.Go Utes!
@ Sambonethegreat:It's extremely doubtful that you have much
knowledge concerning how bad;y William's stinger was. Some are not nearly
as bad as others. As such, some players are fine after a few days and others may
take several weeks. It's nice that you are so concerned. But please know
that there is a qualified sports team doctor who closely monitors the progress
of injuries for each player who has any, and won't release anyone to play
until that player is physically ready. I've known Bronco for
sometime and he has always kept the welfare of his players above the desire for
winning. It's your insinuation of Bronco being reckless that is actually
what is reckless. You are just shooting from the hip.
@ 54-10:Anyone who has ever read at least several of your comments
knows that you are not so much for the Aggies as you are against the Cougars.
One of Chris B's little group of minions who always hate anything BYU. It
must feel pretty negataive to always live with that kind of hatred.
@ Where is Hadley:You must not think too highly of the Utes if you
think BYU is third and sinking... and considering how the Utes barely beat BYU
by single digits after the game went right to the end with BYU gaining more
yardage and getting more first downs. BYU has improved since then. There is no
evidence that Utah has. And also considering how most people feel
that the Aggies outplayed the Utes in their close came in SLC (again with more
yardage, first downs and time of possession). Also, USU is currently ranked
better than Utah by USA today and the Sagarin ratings. Therefore, it's much
more likely that the true current order is: #1 Aggies, #2 BYU #3 Utah and #4
@ utah< BYU< USU:Your comment doesn't say nearly as
much about the Cougars as it does about your current ignorance of in-state
college football. Try harder to keep up.
Its a shame USU and BYU both lost to Utah this year. Utah State especially so
since they are the best overall team in the state. I will not be surprised by
any result tomorrow. USU could win this one handily if BYU turns the ball over
like they did last week. BYU could dominate if they throw like they did last
week and run like they have all year. Williams unfortunate injury was the
deciding factor in the Cougars loss to Utah. Hoffman's absence was the
difference in the Virginia loss.I predict a low scoring affair 13-10
in the Cougars favor. These two teams are so evenly matched, I only see BYU
having a distinct advantage in one category--special teams. That is where I
expect BYU will have the best chance tomorrow.I am going to enjoy
tonight's game. It snowed in West Jordan today. Utes have a legit chance
to finally get a win against a good team in the PAC. Good luck Utah! Good luck
Tators, it must feel pretty negative living as a fan of a team who hasn't
done anything noteworthy on the natinoal stage in 20 years.And
hasn't done anything with its current coach to suggest anything is in its
Please stop the negativity! It's absolutely sickening!
@KenSeriously? If you are going to attempt talking smack make it
good and believable.BYU has had more national relevance than Utah
since Wittingham and Bronco became head coaches. BYU has been ranked more. BYU
has had bigger wins save the Sugar Bowl victory the Utes had over Alabama. Even
this year BYU has had the more relevant win with its victory over Texas than the
Utes biggest story when they defeated Weber State. Why on earth did the win
over Weber State get more national coverage than the other two wins Utah has had
is beyond me. Utah has to do something other than beat USU or BYU
to be noticed on the national stage. They have to win a game against UCLA
tonight or beat a team that finishes with a winning conference record. Utah has
yet to prove its relevant in its conference let alone on a national stage.
But BYU is still fully invested.
It's rare that you see the Aggies favored in this game. But they were
favored in the Ute game and look what happend then. Were they favored in the
USC game? Not likely.
A pretty pathetic cross section of BYU haters.
Again Stang, you're wrong. USU was never favored in that game, at least not
by any reliable odds makers that I'm aware of. If fact I think USU covered
@BYUalumThe reason for the negativity is simple. Even after their
two undefeated seasons, even after making it into the PAC 12, even after having
coaches like Urban Meyer coach their team, Ute fans know they're still
second banana to BYU. There are many Ute fans still bitter about
BYU's great QB factory of the 70's, 80's and early 90's and
they refuse to let it go.
USU should be favored. They have a more balanced offense and are playing at
home. Should be a fun game. BYU's strength (Defense) against USU's
strength (Chuckie). Hoping for an EPIC game!Go Cougars!
Neither team is that good. Utah you say how bad BYU is yet in the last three
years they are your best win each year. That's pretty bad. Your in the pac
12 but the B division seeing how the best three teams are in the North division.
If you put UCLA, ASU and USC in the north it would be division A and Division
Z.BYU you are headed down look at the roster. There isn't much
on defense after the juniors and seniors. Can you really expect to be really
good when in a couple of years you only have two legit players William and
Kearsley on offense, and Kaufusi on defense.Quit cutting each other
down because it only makes you look worse than you really are.USU
wins tonight. Better Quarterback and better offensive line the rest is close.
Both Utes and Cougars might have losing records this year when was the last time
correct Ironmomo... stang is wrong again.How was the game last night
stang?I am for renaming RES "Pick City"
Interesting that the Des News is still buying into the miscommunication from the
coaches line that caused Taysom's injury. They called the running play and
then realized that it was a mistake after the team was set. It was a coaching
We should easily defeat our little brother Utah State. They don't get as
good of recruits as we do.
Don't even try to use facts with Strange. He never lets actual facts
interfere with his hatred of all things USU.
The difference between BYU fans and Ute fans. We BYU know that our team is not
the greatest in the world and we work with what we have. Ute fans think that
just because they are in the Pac12 that they are going to be like BYU and win a
Its all good for Utah to be in the Pac 12, they are the doormat of the league.
You know that most teams look past them, because they are looking forward to
playing the better team the week after.
@ TatorsOut of concern for Williams, I hope it's not the same
team doctor who cleared Riley Nelson to play with a cracked vertebra last
year...That said, here's hoping for a great game and an Aggie
Aggies have a better team and will hopefully win this one -----BIG.
If the utes and aggies were playing this weekend, the aggies would be favored.
@BYUalum@South Jordan, UT'Please stop the negativity!
It's absolutely sickening!'With all sincerity, maybe you
should not read the comments.
So who will Bronco fire after tonight??
Maybe all of you consider this to be crazy, but I am not convinced that Utah or
Utah State are better than BYU. Each school has their stronger aspects, but one
game does not dictate the overall superiority (or lack thereof) when we consider
the entire season. The great thing about good in-state rivalries is that either
team has a good chance of winning based on emotional control and physical
execution. There are way too many trolls on these boards, but I guess that is
what is expected after the U lost last night and the only way they feel a little
better is if BYU loses as well. I expect BYU to win tomorrow just as I expected
them to beat Texas! Some Cougar fans do not have any confidence in the team and
should maybe change colors.
Last night and this morning on about three articles on the UU-UCLA game there
were lots of BYU fans who gave props to the way Utah played, even though they
lost. And yet here on the first page of comments, the first three, and nearly
half of the 20 comments are posted by Ute "fans" on an article that does
not involve them at all.You guys talk all the time about BYU's
growing irrelevance, but you can't give up the obsession. Max was right.
@LoveTheHatered:Or maybe you should stop posting on articles that
have nothing to do with you.You need a different hobby.
This is the one game I cheer for both teams. May the best team win.Go BYU!!!!!Go USU!!!!!
I can't wait to watch the battle for second best football team in the
state. Hopefully it will be an exciting, close game. Good luck to both teams!
WA_Alum&DadMarysville, WANeed a tissue? Nothing wrong
with a fan liking the Utes and the Aggies and NOT the Cougars. Therefore,
I'll post on any article I would like to post on.
If talking smack were smoking crack, we'd all be arrested and compelled to
surrender our temple recommends; eventually the game has to be played and things
must be settled on the field. However, for all the folks who think that Pac-12
membership must inexorably translate to perpetual athletic superiority over a
lowly independent/member of the WCC, how is it that BYU's basketball
program is on the rise, whereas the U is still stuck in the muck of its recent
mediocrity, Pac-12 or no? The answer is, of course, that BYU's basketball
team is, and will be, no more "perpetually" superior to the U than the
latter's football team will be to BYU.
Clearly no one reads. I said I doubt the aggies were favored in that game. As
in, I knew they were going to lose and so did everyone else. @Go
Big BlueFact: You lost to UofU even though you said you'd win.
Fact: You lost to USC. And I believe you said you'd win that one.
Fact: BYU is better than USU. How much better, I don't know, but
they are. As far as Ifel Of-a sofa is concerned I didn't watch that game
because as stated many many times before. I'm not a Ute fan unless they
are beating USU or in a bowl. So I don't care if they won/lost the game.
Um.. did anyone notice that Texas is 3 and 1. Pretty good start for them. Did
anyone notice the half dozen turnovers Utah was offering up at their game last
night. Tonight will be hard fought and close. BYU by 14.
@Y Grad / Y Dad"A pretty pathetic cross section of BYU haters."I agree, I hate haters.
Did anyone notice that BYU hasn't beaten UTAH in a very long time!
Did anyone notice that BYU is so relevant to the big, bad, PAC-12 Utah Utes that
Ute fans can't stay away from any of the BYU stories?Rent free
in your heads. Thanks.Go Cougars!!
Vindication. SCOREBOARD. Hopefully now that the in-state games are
over and UU has had their yearly bowl game, the utie trolls can go talk smack on
their precious PAC opponents' fan boards. Yeah, like that's gonna
happen . . .
Irnmomo and all aggie fan'sWho won the game? Who won the game?
Who won the game? I don't think the aggie came close. I believe I am now
3-0 with my predictions this season.
@54-10DN needs a thumbs down mechanism... If they did, 90% of your
comments wouldn't even show up after about 8 views... Lose the vile... take
out your frustration on some PAC12 teams that you guys are incapable of
beating... Play some more Weber Colleges... But get away from the emotion...This
is exactly what Max was talking about and oh my, was he ever accurate.
