@Cinci Man@Christine B. Hedgefog@Adirondack Cougar@CG@LonestarRunnerWhat does University of Utah football have to do
with this article? Why are you bringing the Utes into these comments about BYU?
BYU lost to Utah this year, that is a fact. Get over it, move on, and be
christyUnfortunately for U, one game does not a season make.The Jeff Sagarin Ratings have BYU ranked 29th, Utah 34th and Utah State
38th. USA Today has BYU ranked 37th, Utah 49th and Utah State
58th.CBS Sports has Utah ranked 51st, BYU 52nd and Utah State
60th.Consensus? BYU > Utah > Utah St
Relative to other teams BYU and GT are probably pretty similar in rank (both
somewhere near 40th), but BYU's defense, run game, and experience with the
likes of Air Force and GT last year (making it much faster for BYU than other
teams to adjust to GTs offense) makes BYU a really bad matchup for GT to try and
Chris, nothing new here. We have all heard it before. Hopefully the Y will
continue to improve and we will play in a bowl game. Maybe even finish in the
top 20. What the future will bring for both schools is a story yet to be told.
Will the U be able to continue to get 'star' recruits if they continue
to lose in the PAC-12? Will the Y start attracting better recruits as they play
all over the country against nationally recognized programs? Will BYU continue
to remain independent? Lot's of unknowns. The Y and U will play again in
a few years and we'll see where both programs are then. It should be
interesting because I believe both schools will be starting 'new'
quarterbacks that season. So until then good luck.
Here are some facts that summarize utah's season.1. You have
the state championship certificate to hang in your nearly empty showcase.
Congratulations2. Your team beat Weber, then the whole
nation...didn't even notice.3. Besides Weber your only other wins are
against teams that you claim to be unworthy of your presence. (Aren't you
supposed to beat lesser mid-majors when you're in the big boy club?)4. You are O-2 in the PAC.4a. You will likely be 0-3 in the PAC this
weekend-for the 3rd consecutive season...without having even left the state of
Utah to play a game in the first half of your season.5. You are O-fer
against PAC teams with winning records.6. Your QB had a worse passer
rating than BYU's in their most recent game.6a. 6 Interceptions
doesn't a high caliber QB make. (I know, I know, it was the receivers,
refs, flu's fault. Have I missed any excuses??)7. Your team
can't convert on 3rd down.8. Your obsession with BYU is comical.9. You are dismissed by fans of your own team as an embarrassment.
Here are the facts as I see them.BYU could have and should have beaten
Virginia, but didn't.BYU could have and should have beaten Utah, but
didn't.BYU can have and should beat Georgia Tech, but we'll
see.BYU can and should win enough games to go to a bowl, but we'll
see.Now let's put it on the field and get the job done the rest of
the way.As far as Utah goes, we'll...Go Cougars and
