Who replaces Falslev (spelling)These injeries are tough. Go cougers
Dude didn't say Notra Dame was having an off year, he said even in an off
year it would be a privilege to play the Irish. And Bosie could go to a bowl
game without winning the MAC. So someone didn't catch an s on cardnial.
Notre Dame is ranked... Or did we not see Sunday's lists? They won't
be losing that ranking, neither will ASU after next week! Look at what they are
doing at WSU.... The sadness continues in RES come November 9th...
The 'ranked' teams of this year may be on U's schedule every
year, but the success of 2013 is not guaranteed to follow... And... The BCS dies
before January 15th, 2014 so then what? Yes, still a 'powerful'
conference, but only as powerful as their championships in the same last 15
years that you smash the cougars of having put up against your beloved utes. Oh,
and just a sidebar dose of reality, Oregon is NOT on the U schedule every
year... neither is Stanford!
Chris B. Why only go back 15 years? Of course you know why, and so does
everyone else. That is about the time the utes started to have any sustained
success against BYU.You would like to obfuscate and or ignore the
fact that if you go back further that that-- utah wins over BYU were quite rare.
In fact BYU almost made it 10 years in a row. That would be 4 straight years
followed by another four, plus one.LOL on that.
Onward and Upward
I think beating BYU this year will preserve Kyle Whittingham's job for
2014, regardless of the outcome of the rest of this season. But, in
2014 and 2015 the Utes are going to have to make it on their own steam.
Meaning, there will be no BYU win to salvage a poor season. I hope
the Utes can fix their troubles soon, or changes could be coming.
Ute fans commenting on a BYU article? That's right. It's all you
I think Bronco will be most thankful this Thanksgiving that he wont have to lose
to Utah for another 3 years. I would imagine it's tough having your best
player Van Noy say that his Super Bowl is the Utah game, only to go out and
deliver another choke.
I thinks it's nice to get some material from outside writers, but could we
run an article past an editor before hand? Stanford "Cardinals?" Maybe
pay attention to the fact that if you're going to predict Boise winning out
that they will not only get a bowl game, but also go to the MWC championship.Fun article though. Daring opinions to say it's a bad year for
Notre Dame, that Houston is poised to win the AAC, or that Southern Miss will be
have Middle Tennessee for dinner. I hope that isn't a prediction that a
winless team will beat Middle Tennessee... That wouldn't be daring as much
Chris, I agree that the Utes are in a VTC. However, I love my Cougars
independence. The Cougars get to play in many different places throughout the
US. We go to Wisconsin this next Sat and to Notre Dame two Saturdays after that
and end the year in San Francisco. We have been to VA and TX already. Next year
we visit Texas in Austin, Central FL in Orlando, play in TN, and in Berkeley, CA
against your conference's Bears, to name a few. Can't beat that. It is
great to be called the "Notre Dame of the West". I believe that both
schools, the U and BYU are in great positions right now. I am pulling for the
Utes to win at least two more games so they can go bowling. It would be neat if
the two schools could play each other in the Fight Hunger Bowl in SF. However,
with an extra game on their schedule because they played in HI, USC will
probably be the #6 seed at 7-6. We will see - there is still a lot of FB to be
played this year. Good luck Utes and Cougars.
I'm thankful we get two years off from the little kids on the hill. Nothing would make me happier than to see the rivalry die. Neither
school can afford it anymore. Both programs have bigger things to worry about,
and the nonsense that it brings out makes the LDS church look bad whenever
national attention is drawn to it. Besides, I can still root
against Utah as a USC fan, or when they play our local Washington teams. I know
that for the regional fans in the i-15 corridor suggesting they not play is
heresy (Dave Noriega, I'm talking to you), but I promise, you will all be
better off without the jerkiness.
Chris B, of course Ute fans care about beating BYU four years in a row. They
don't have much else to cheer about. BYU fans, on the other hand, realize
that their program is on the rise and we are starting to see the benefits. Poor
Ute fans see their team losing to teams that are not even in the top of their
own conference. What does that say about the Utes? If you can't be the
medicore teams in your own conference, that must make you the conference bottom
feeders (as usual).I'm actually rooting for the Utes to pull
out a couple more wins. I just don't think it's possible for the Utes
to make it to the very bowl that their fans used to make fun of. It must be
tough to see your rival bowling each year while your team can't even find a
way to become bowl eligible.
You forgot having all games nationally televised, and not regionally on a
network that DirecTV does not carry.Playing games from the West
coast to the East coast for exposure and recruiting.
Chris BSalt Lake City, UTJust goes to show how tough it is to
win in a tough conference.===A buddy of mine from Oregon was
complaining about the same thing. Why is it, that for the past fifty
years, Utah fans have always whined about their tough schedule? Although they
did put together two good seasons in the MWC...That's why the
PAC brought in two weak teams.Still, Chris has to come on second to
tout the same old lame trash that he posts 5-10 times on every article.Chis, how many good quarters did Utah have last seek against SC?Live in the now, babe...
ekute -Agreed. Scheduling cupcakes has its dangers - BYU's two losses
this year illustrate the point.
@Chris and othersDo you really think Utah would beat BYU again this
You want us to think that being compared to WSU and CU doesnt bother you.loldon't worry Gymnastics is coming up.lol
I don't care.The experts that rank teams don't care.the
6-2 cougs lost to two of the worst 4 teams on their schedule.that is the
@ ekute - Layton, UT - "byu is blessed to have at least 6 cupcakes on their
schedule every year, I count 8 this year...and they lost to one of them."Riiiiight......ekute, that light you see waaaaaay out there
in the distance is called "reality".Walk towards it.Go Cougars!
BeSmart,"most Byu fans I know don't care about losing to
Utah"LOLOL!Ya, and Kyle Van Noy didn't really
care about beating Utah even though he claimed it was his "Super
Bowl"LOL!You want us to believe you don't care
about an 0-4 record against your rival the last 4 years.LOL!
@ Chris BMost BYU fans I know don't care about losing to Utah.They care about 6-2 and 5 straight wins.What do Utah fans cheer about?
Beating BYU or Stanford a while ago.
In byu's toughest schedule ever they have exactly one team currently ranked
on their schedule, and Wisconsin in barely ranked.Meanwhile Utah has
#2 undefeated Oregon, top 10 otherwise undefeated Stanford(who we beat), ranked
UCLA, ranked ASUAnd that schedule will be consistent almost every
year.Just goes to show how tough it is to win in a tough conference
You guys should be really thankful you don't have to lose to your rival for
another 3 years.0-4 is bad enough I would imagine
@EkutePlease name the 8 cupcakes you think BYU has on their
schedule. Remember, 8 games have already been played and there is evidence to
@ekutePlease name the 8 teams you think are cupcakes. And just
because they lost to Utah doesn't demean Utah enough to call them a
cupcake. Have some respect.
ek Do you know that BYU schedule is tanked higher than most power
conference teams?So 6-2 is probably the best record against a schedule
that tough in Utah.oh wait it is the only 6-2 record against a top 40
schedule.Utes only success (in history) were against some of the worst
byu is blessed to have at least 6 cupcakes on their schedule every year, I count
8 this year...and they lost to one of them.
Hey Sweep Guy,Seems to me your grasping desperately for some sort of
positive aspect to your already dismal season, which continues to slowly circle
Chris BRepressing tough memories huh?Such as:AP - #28 BYU, unranked Utah (not a single vote)Coaches - #30 BYU,
unranked Utah (not a single vote)BCS - #28 BYU, #45 Utah, #78 USUUSA Today - #26 BYU, #57 USU, #59 UtahCBS Sports - #29 BYU,
#46 Utah, #71 USUSagarin - #24 BYU, #39 Utah, #41 USUIt's easy to see why you are so obsessed with a quality football program
like BYU, especially when your own program has such a pitiful record of
finishing in the Top 25.
So glad BYU haters have moved "Onward and Upward" and left BYU articles
for us BYU fans to enjoy in peace!!! I guess that is what happens when you suck
in your new conference and are in the basement again for the third straight
year!!!1-4 and no chance of a winning season unless you can some how sneak Alex
Smith or Brian Johnson back into uniform for your last four games!!!Gots to hurt
that the team you barely beat is now playing the way you thought and bragged
that your team was going to be at this point in the season!!! Already going
bowling while you struggle to get eligible!!! I feel your pain!!! RISE UP!!!Go Cougs!!!
4-4 is all you should be worried about crissy.
HahaThis guy is comical.(Chris B)I love this guys attitude about the
BYU program.Everyone have a great day.
"I don’t really remember anything that happened in the week after the
Longhorns game. It’s all a blur"LOL. Repressing tough memories huh?That completed the second 4-0 SWEEP
over byu in the last 15 years.Guess how many 4-0 sweeps byu has over
Utah in the last 15 years?Zero!
