They're also pretty close to being 2-7 or 1-8 as well. It's interesting how the close losses are rationalized into near wins but the near wins aren't alternately looked at.

Gee I remember BYU fans talking about last year's 'near wins' and just getting pummeled and berated by Ute fans.

I can't believe all of the continued whining and coverage of last week's game and this article came out on Wednesday.

How much time does it take to mourn a loss in Uteville?

Don't U guys have a game on Saturday or what?

I was impressed with Utah's defense against ASU. The Sundeviks are a legit offense with decent weapons. That being said, the last two drives for ASU, going the length of the field in essence, spoke volumes about what this game was in the end. Utah's defense playing lights out, and ASUs offense not waking up until the fourth quarter. And don't make excuses about Utah's defense being tired. ASUs defense spent more time on the field and had to deal with all of ASUs 3 and outs as well. ASUs offense woke up when they had to and moved the ball against Utah's defense when they played the way they're capable. That's why the ASU game defensively doesn't say anything to how the game will go against Oregon. I predicted Utah would beat Stanford, remember. I predict Utah will get torched by an angry Ducks team that doesn't even need motive to absolutely demolish an opponent. Utah does not match up well with Oregon like they did with Stanford. It's gonna be ugly.

The defense has pulled their weight, especially with how inept the offense has been lately. It would be great to see both sides playing lights out against the Ducks. As much as duckster likes to point out that Utah is close to being 2-7 or 1-8, it's interesting that they could easily be 8-1, or 7-2 also. This has been a perplexing team to say the least.

Did you read all the comments? That's the point, they are what they are, they've won about half the close games and lost about half the close games, actually they've lost more of the close games than they've won. So they are good enough to pull out a close win 3 out of 8 chances. They are not good enough 5 out of 8 chances. They are closer to being 1-8 than 8-1 but quite a long shot.
