No Wilson, no problem. The Utes have two upper-echelon PAC 12 quarterbacks plus 2 or 3 outstanding quarterbacks waiting in the wings, or so we were told last spring.

What was already looking like a lopsided affair, is now looking like an absolute blow out.

The Utes better hope they can keep Schulz healthy, or Utah's bowl chances are all but gone.

Wow, talk about spin. First they have 4 top pac qb's in the stall and now they have none. Suggestion to Whit next year; tell the truth from the beginning. How sad that the u has 17 picks this year, 4th most in the country and even fewer completed passes in the last four games. The game with the Ducks tomorrow will be a disaster.
U won't be able to pass the ball and they won't be able to run against the Duck's d-line. It's too bad we won't be able to watch the mayhem in Eugene since it is not on national tv.

Uh, isn't this game on FoxSports 1? That should be good enough for a national TV audience.

We wouldn't want anything less than national exposure for this epic beat down would we?

Hopefully Wilson will recover to play the two most desperate games of his life and the season for a chance of redemption and a shot at the Kraft Left-overs Bowl.

Wow, talk about lots of time. You must have lots of time on your hands if you can make negative comments about other teams. Oh wait...you comment on every Utah article! If according to what you said is true, "Now they have none", then it's comforting to know we can beat BYU without a top pac qb. Personally I think the Utes do have a some great quarterbacks but with a decimated receiving core and terrible O-line play it's hard to do much isn't it?

If I remember correctly BYU had horrendous O-line play and quartback play during the first few games, right? Also the receivers weren't doing so great, right? I think Taysom Hill had the worst stat lines in the country over the first few games and that's directly attributed to terrible play by the O-line and receivers. Now look at T. Hill? BYU fans worship him now.Any quarterback is going to look like crap when they get zero help from those around them.

Lots of whiny excuse-making. What happened to the Utah OL that helped Travis post such stellar stats in the first few games of the season?

The truth is, BYU has improved throughout the season, while Utah has regressed.

Given the choice, I'd much rather have a team that is constantly improving - it demonstrate that coaches and players are recognizing weaknesses and turning them into strengths, as opposed to a team that regresses as teams around them improve.

"Given the choice, I'd much rather have a team that is constantly improving"

And yet they can't ever seem to improve enough to beat that team that you said regresses. Year after year after year. Weird.

Re: Scott "The truth is, BYU has improved throughout the season, while Utah has regressed."

It's the middle of November and Utah is playing a Top 10 team and BYU is playing Idaho St. It's near impossible to win without your starting QB. Starting next year Utah will be just fine because they'll finally have some quality backup help for situations such as this.

Go warm up your tv and get ready for BYU to "improve" against Idaho St.

@tfudd,
No I don't have lots of time but the time I do have is totally devoted to dishing it back to the ute fans that hang out on BYU articles. I believe that you and all of the other utah fans fail to see that BYU started out slow and is improving and utah started out fast ans has been in steady decline since week 4. The u qb corps are a shambles since week 4. I for one would love to see a rematch in a bowl game but since the Moral Victory bowl will not find any team that has as many moral victories as u they will be playing it by themselves.

"It's the middle of November and Utah is playing a Top 10 team and BYU is playing Idaho St."

And next week, BYU will be playing Top 25 Notre Dame(7-3), while Utah is playing Washington State(5-5).

And, lets not forget, Utah already played their Big Sky patsy, the same week BYU was playing 15th-ranked Texas.

And, finally, Utah opens the 2014 season playing Idaho State.

Get over your hypocrisy already.

Snack PAC, Notre Dame is not in the top 25. I love how Y fans just make things up. Classic.

According to the Utah fan theory of head-to-head trumps everything else, Notre Dame is BETTER than #23/#25 USC, which is BETTER than #10/#12 Stanford, making Notre Dame BETTER than at least two Top 25 teams.

Notre Dame is #27 in this week's AP poll, so much closer to the truth than your "just making things up" claim suggests.
