@Jarka"@There You Go AgainPut an asterisk by that Bama win
as well."Only if that asterisk is referencing a footnote that
points out this was the greatest win by a team from Utah in the history of
college football. That game was played in the heart of the SEC, and no one gave
Utah a chance. It also culminated what was, by far, the best season a team from
Utah has ever put together. Utah knocked off three other end-of-season ranked
teams on their way to seal-clubbing Saban's Tide. Nothing BYU
did in '84 compares. They never played any good teams. They didn't
even play in a major bowl.
"So a fluke is something that would not happen again..."Like
Utah's 1944 NCAA tournament championship against the weakest field in the
history of the NCAA.
I actually really enjoy Cletus's comments haha
@There You Go AgainPut an asterisk by that Bama win as well.
He still refers to his other screen names in the third person, LOL!
For what it's worth, Dennis Erickson is an excellent coach but one of his
deficiencies is flexing his muscles a bit as a coach. He didn't do that
enough at Arizona State which is what caused a lot of issues. Otherwise, he was
a good coach. As for this week's game, I understand wanting your team to
win & such but ASU is hot right now and Utah just doesn't have the guns
to stop them. Not this year anyway. I'm glad Utah is in the PAC now. I
just wish they had brought in BYU instead of Colorado. Colorado? Who in the
world thought up that idea. It's my understanding that Stanford balked at
bringing in a religious school into the conference which is why they passed on
BYU. That was a really dumb move.ASU 42 UTAH 17
Crissy, Crissy, Crissy,Whit has an undefeated season playing cupcakes so
you might want to stop the chest beating. that is ancient history. let's
look at what he has done in the past three years. Exactly how many conference
wins has he had since joining the pac11+u? I think I can count them on one
hand.It is sad that DE thinks that this can has no extra meaning. As down
under said, every game should have some meaning. It is time for him to go
somewhere where winning has no meaning.
The Utes and BYU will both end the year with the same number of PAC 12 wins.
"...Utah beating Stanford was the biggest fluke, would not happen
again...".So a fluke is something that would not happen
again...Like byu's 1984 nc*?Exactly.
Dennis Erickson lol, it makes since that a a school like utah would hire such a
thug offensive coach. Look at his history in Miami. LOL
Utah beating Stanford was the biggest fluke, would not happen again. ASU by 21.
We are somebody now because we are in a somebody conference and that makes us
more awesome than byu now so we will win asu for sure because we are somebody!
We got our hiseman candidate back to!Utes 61Asu 3Go Utes!
Things are not looking good for the Utes this weekend...they did surprise many
with the win against Stanford, but since then though they've last two games
badly. So my hopes aren't too high for the W this week; if Wilson truly has
recovered (big IF) they may keep it close, but I wouldn't count on it.
Proud of the way the guys keep fighting. Considering how close the UCLA and
Oregon State games were, and coupled with the fact we are the only team to beat
a top 10 powerhouse Stanford, this season has still given me a ton of hope for
the future, WITH WhittinghamHe knows how to have undefeated top 5
seasons. He's proven he can do it. Anyone who thinks he should be fired
is clueless. I highly doubt any other school transitioning from a nobody
conference to the second best conference in the nation would have done better
the first 3 seasons.If all we cared about was padding our record,
we'd just go independent and schedule byu and usu 6 times each.
A football game has no special meaning?? Really Dennis? Hence the downhill
slide as of late. Every game should have some special meaning. Maybe he has
lost his zest for coaching.My prediction: ASU 53 - Utah 3
