@ 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?

podunk utah

so we should expect 3 interceptions this week instead of 5 or 6 or 7...

Rock Springs, WY

How many picks this week. ASU is in the drivers set for the south division. They better be prepared.

East Salt Lake City, Utah

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.


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.

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?


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 something first?

@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

Most 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.

Salt Lake City, UT

"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).


Orem, UT

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?

Salt Lake City, UT

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 quarterback.

"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 about!

Salt Lake City, UT


"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 contender.
