Much love to the Asiata family. Tragic time for them all.
Hooray! I'm sure glad that excuse is now 'officially' over!
We've been on needles and pins for over a week.So if the Utes
lose this weekend and this hand excuse comes up again...Well, you
know how the story goes.
Tragic circumstance for the Asiata family...Prayers.Great news about
Wilson. We need Westlee back asap and the RB's need to step it up a couple
of notches. Go Utes.
Bach on with Hiseman wach for Travis and our bcs conference prestige! Everybodys
got to wach out now because we will win Arizona by 36 for sure with our Hiseman
canidate! then on to the pac 10 south championship!Go Utes!
Utah always has done great after a BYE week under Coach Witt. The state of Utah
needs Arizona State to lose!!
sammyg:When has the hand been used as an excuse. Every interview I've
seen has mentioned that Wilson's hand has been injured but both Whit and
Wilson have said it was no excuse. Can't wait to watch a healthy Wilson
step it up this week though.
@Steve S JarvisThe State of Utah needs utah to lose this game.Go
@40.calNo, BYU needs Utah to beat Arizona State to help with the
computer numbers. USU also needs the Utes to win for the same reason. Utah can
lose to its heart's content the next two years because its performance will
then have no bearing on USU or BYU.
"The state of Utah needs Arizona State to lose!!"The State
of Utah is going to be VERY disappointed.
Can't wait to hear the spin on Sunday morning after the Sun Devils trounce
he utes 53-3.
Utefan4lyf-- Perhaps they should have used it as an excuse to hold him out of
games and let it heal. Should have learned from BYU playing Nelson last year
with a broken back. Even a mediocre backup playing 100% is better than a
starter at 60%.
Gone fishin,I've already heard one ute fan praying for a
blizzard. LOL. Can't win on their own talent, have to hope for some type of
equalizing storm to accommodate their inability to play.
Remember when Utah had no chance to beat Stanford?
CB,Stanford and BYU both considered the utes as easy wins so didn't
bring their A games. The 4-4 records proves that out.
Remember how Utah had every chance to beat Arizona and USC this year?Remember how Utah had every chance to beat a 1 and 10 Colorado team to go to
the Pac 12 championship game?Remember how Utah's only notable
win for the last three years (until they got lucky that Stanford overlooked
them) was their annual bowl game against BYU?Remember how no one has
Utah picked to go to a bowl game this year?Remember how Utah
didn't go to a bowl game last year?Yeah...I remember. And so
will ASU. they're motivated and will take an easy one from Utah.
@souptwins: I agree completely. Schultz was probably the better choice for the
AZ and ASC games with Wilson injured. Giving him the majority of snaps those
weeks would have been very beneficial. I'm not saying it guarantees wins,
but they wouldn't have been worse.
Good luck to Utah this week. I think they have the talent to beat a very good
Arizona State Team. Eliminate the turnovers and they have been in every game
they played this year. Wilson is a good quarterback. He is a sophomore and still
has some growing to do. I expect him to rebound from his interceptions. Utah is
at home and their fans always give them a boost. I would not be surprised to see
them win this game, but I imagine it will be close if they do because Arizona
State appears to be very good.@Chris B. I am still waiting to hear
the BYU fight song on You Tube as you promised... Please let me know when you
have it posted. :)
OK, Wilson and Hill are both sophomores, Let's look to see where each
stands midway through the season. Wilson started out on fire and Hill started
out very slow. Where are they now? Hall is 6th in the nation in total offense
and Hill is....well we won't go to the bottom of the list but it is not
good.I love my independent membership and the chance to play on National
TV every week.
So glad to hear Wilson's hand is healed. A healthy Travis gives Utah a
fighting chance. So tired of ASU dominating Utah. Hopefully it doesn't
happen again. Utah's defense has improved dramatically against read option
QB's. Trevor Reilly is the key to that. No turnovers and move the ball Utah
might have a chance.Going to be a fun sunny day at RES! Can't
Excuse me if I am a little skeptical, but haven't we heard this "Wilson
will be OK and 100%" before? Like against Arizona and USC? Personally I hope
he is OK, but I'll believe it when I see it this time.
@ Gone fishin please tell us how great it is to lose to your rival four times in
a row or nine of the last twelve and thirteen of the last twenty? Tell us how
many of BCS caliber teams are coming into Provo to play? Tell us how many top 25
rated teams you are playing this year? Tell us how many automatic BCS level bowl
game agreements you have in independence? Please tell everyone how happy you are
watching mid major or below teams as the bulk of your schedule playing in
Provo.Utah on the other hand is playing eight BCS level teams every
year, with at least four or five at home, along with five of this years group
that have or are currently in the top 25. Oh and let's not forget your
school's paycheck that next year will be half of what Utah is making. Still enjoy your independence?
So no excuses for a another meltdown then?
@cougar fans et al Why do you care?
so we should expect 3 interceptions this week instead of 5 or 6 or 7...
How many picks this week. ASU is in the drivers set for the south division. They
better be prepared.
@sammygHooray! I'm sure glad that excuse is now
'officially' over! We've been on needles and pins for over a
week.So if the Utes lose this weekend and this hand excuse comes up
again...Well, you know how the story goes.---------------I don't know why you're so giddy,
didn't you hear the bad news?The forecast is for rain during
the game in Wisconsin.
@CougarSunDevilRemember how Utah's only notable win for the
last three years (until they got lucky that Stanford overlooked them) was their
annual bowl game against BYU?-----------And what's
your annual bowl game? Arizona?Utah finished 8-5 with a Sun Bowl
win over Georgia Tech.What did ASU did over the same period? A 8-5
season and a win in the Fight Hunger Bowl over Navy. Biggest win?
In 2011 when ASU (6-7) got lucky that USC (10-2) overlooked them.If
your going to talk about accomplishments shouldn't your team accomplish
@Gone Fishin- Talk after the Wisconsin and Notre Dame game. Maybe Taysom has
become better and Wilson has become worse.....or Utah has been playing top
quality teams week in and week out while BYU are playing mediocre teams.
Numbers always look great with a string of average or below average games at
home. Let's see how they do after higher quality teams away from home..
then talk. Of course Wisconsin and Notre Dame are NOT as highly ranked as
Arizona State nor even in the same ballpark as Oregon, but at least it will be
closer to a fair comparison. I'm sure that if BYU and UTAH had played
identical teams their records would be identical except that BYU would have one
more loss.... to Utah
UteologyMost fans would prefer the Fight Hunger Bowl to the couch
potato bowl, but maybe Utah fans are an exception.It's
laughable that you're trying to demean a team that has OWNED you forever -
NINE straight wins, 18 of 24 overall, including two crushing defeats, 14-35 and
7-37, since Utah joined the PAC 12.Utah has only beaten ONE PAC 12
team with a winning record in almost three full seasons.ASU has
beaten FIVE such PAC 12 teams in the last three seasons, including two this
season - USC(10-2), Utah(8-5), Arizona(8-5), USC(6-3), and Washington(5-3).Utah is WINLESS versus Arizona State since the Sun Devils joined the PAC
10 in 1978.Remind us how many winning conference seasons the Utes
have had since joining the conference.btw, that 10-2 USC team that
ASU dominated 43-22 in 2011...finished 6th in the final AP poll.Get over yourselves Utes; there's NOTHING special about U.
"Utah finished 8-5 with a Sun Bowl win over Georgia Tech."...versus a team that finished 56th in Sagarin and lost to Virginia (a Cavs
team that barely squeaked past Idaho 21-20 in OT).impressive
Trust Uteology to try to spin Utah's OT squeaker over #56 Georgia Tech as
superior to ASU's dominating win over #6 USC.
“We’re hoping that Travis is now 100 percent free from the effects
of that injury.”===Why is Kyle commenting on an injury?
After the Jordan Wynn debacle, it's hard to have any confidence in anything
Kyle has to say concerning the health and readiness of his injured, starting
"Get over yourselves Utes; there's NOTHING special about U."Okay, fine. We'll do our best to listen to an out of stater,
telling us that we need to get over ourselves.Sounds like a certain
Zoner needs to focus on how insignificant his sunny devils are, too. You
won't find me trolling ASU comment boards about how Zoner fans need to get
over themselves because there's nothing special about them. Although I
will admit that their dazzling new jerseys have been something worth talking
samurai"Sounds like a certain Zoner needs to focus on how
insignificant his sunny devils are, too."The Sun Devils are
leading the PAC 12 South and have the inside track to play in the PAC 12
championship game for a shot at a BCS game.The Utes are 1-4 with
absolutely no chance of playing in the PAC 12 championship game, and only a very
slim chance of even qualifying for a bowl.It's quite obvious
which team is an insignificant pretender and which team is a legitimate
