@utefan4lyfHow does posting on an article have anything to do with
sportsmanship? I understand you don't like to read the truthful things BYU
fans are posting about utah but how does that make them poor sports? Of course BYU fans have to read similar, and frankly worse, stuff from utah
"fans" all of the time but I notice one big difference, very few BYU
fans complain about it or suffer angst over it, but utah "fans" are so
thin skinned, and so hypocritical, that they whine incessantly about having to
do the same. That in and of itself is hilarious.
Hey murph, too bad you dogged the cougs...you could be going to bowl games.
Six of the first 10 comments are from BYU fans. Great sportsmanship guys.
I am truly sorry for T. Wilson's health issues. I wish nothing but the best
for the kid.This QB situation is absolutely pathetic and an
embarrassment. Where are the 'upper echelon' QBs?Whit is
obviously out of his league with this situation. Maybe during another long term
contract with the Utes he'll finally figure this problem out.
Chris what's that promise about becoming a byu fan? As the article states
Wilson is staying home this game will be more than 54-10 in my humble opinion
"Dont byu fans have a big game against Idaho State to get ready for? Only a
terrible program who accepts being mediocre at best would rather beat up on
Idaho State than play a national powerhouse. "Hypocrisy at its
finest. Weber State is 1-9. Please explain how that is better than a 3-9 team
from the same division? Even Oregon's lower division team is 4-6. If any
team played the weakest team, it's Utah. Again, hypocrisy at its best.
Like Chris B I love the utes in the PAC 12 it gives me a chance to watch them
loose week after week. Ha ha it's great. The big 12 has Kansas sec has
Kentucky big 10 has Illinois and the PAC has utah and colo. I would much rather
be in the cougs shoes with numerous top 25 finishes and a much better overall
coach. I think bronco has 4 or 5 more top 25 finishes than whit. If utah
didn't have 1 fluke season with whit as the coach he would already of been
looking for a new job. I really hope he signs long term with the utes.
The Cougs and Ducks both have easy games this week. The only question is will
BYU or Oregon beat their opponent by a larger margin.
Gentle reminder here-- this article is about the Utah/Oregon game. Back to
the topic at hand. Players get hurt, it's part of the game. The
frustrating part for Ute fans has got to be that Whitt didn't learn from
the Wynn/Hayes fiasco. Actually I think the team is still feeling the effect of
that problem because all the QB's are young and inexperienced. There was
no one in the pipeline to fill in the gaps. I can't help but wonder how hot
Whitt's seat will get after this season, especially if there's no
bowl. BTW--BYU played a natl. power last week and will play another big
name next week-- big deal.
Looking forward: Utah 21 - Oregon 63
@Ken:This is our third season in the PAC-12; get over your parochial
focus on BYU already. We should be more concerned about our bowl chances, our
lack of offensive production, our offensive inconsistency, our offensive line
and QB depth, and us getting out of the PAC-12 cellar. We're lucky that
Kalalni Sataki isn't coaching in Madison - our only hope tomorrow is that
he has the defense playing like they did against Stanford, USC, and last week
for all four quarters of the game in Eugene.
Ken et al:Ya you ute fans are right. Texas, Wisconsin, ND, Georgia tech,
Boise State are all just chumps in college football. BYU has the 13th ranked SOS
in the country. Your SOS arguments are getting old and tired, but hey if
it's an excuse that helps you deal with the mediocrity that is Utah
football have at it. And enough with the we beat a top 10 team...no one,
experts, media, CFB fans, anyone believes Utah's victory over Stanford to
be anything but a fluke. I guess that's the benefit of playing in the
PAC12...you play enough ranked teams that Murphy's law eventually has to
let the sun shine on your behind at some point. Enjoy the holidays at home
again. But hey u always have that SOS trophy to shine up. LOL
FACTS:BYU has a bowl game no matter what happens the rest of the
season.Five of 6 national experts predict Utah won't go to a
bowl this year (yet again).Colorado isn't a guaranteed win
(remember two years ago in SLC?) like you are claiming.It's a
bit hypocritical for those who claim Y fans cheer for teams playing Utah just
because they lost to the Utes this year when there have been bumper stickers for
years that say "My two favorite teams are Utah and whoever plays
BYU."Oregon stood in danger of losing their record of selling
out their stadium for consecutive home games just a few weeks ago when I
received an e-mail asking me to buy a ticket. (A knowledgeable friend suggested
Nike would step up and buy the necessary tickets if fans did not.) What does
that fact say about the Utah brand?The Ute team that is better than
last year's bunch still has one conference win this year to date.
@ Chris B"Any other utes agree this is better than beating up on
nobodies this time of year?"Here's a Ute fan who is tired
of comparing our situation to BYU's. This isn't a competition about
who has the better November schedule! It's about the U competing in the
PAC-12 for the Rose Bowl. Our situation is more troubling than BYU's
scheduling issues in November. It seems our coaching staff has learned nothing
since watching Jordan Wynn struggle. If we have five QB's on scholarship,
why are we depending on a QB who already has demonstrated that we should be
trying a third option?
Dont byu fans have a big game against Idaho State to get ready for? Only a
terrible program who accepts being mediocre at best would rather beat up on
Idaho State than play a national powerhouse. In byu's hardest
scheudle ever, its still easier than a typical Utah schedule that we'll
play in the Pac 12 year after year. And next year - byu's only power
conference teams are Texas, Virginia(watch out!), and Cal. Maybe the big 12
will come calling....Not!
I guess when your program isn't going anywhere and has no hope of ever
having a schedule like Utah, you have to become fans of other PAC 12 teams. Byu
can't beat us so they become fans of teams that can?
Some of you make it hard to be a UTE fan. I keep trying, but I end up feeling
uncomfortable sitting with my fellow UTE fans. I think I might sit with the
Ducks just to see if I'm right.
As a Cougar fan, I wish the Utes the best. Good luck and I really hope for a
great game. Go Cougs!
GO UTES !
Frankly, I'm more worried about not having Jared Norris than I am about
Travis Wilson. Wilson has been terrible lately so Shulz couldn't really be
much worse. Norris, however, has been huge for our defense. We will really miss
his ability to stop the run on the edges against Oregon.
.40 cal,Actually we thank you for giving us a gimme game the last 4
years.We wouldnt be bowl eligible this year without you!Yes, its tough playing with the big boys. But its much better
than being a nobody where no conference wants you!But you'll
just have to trust me on that, since you woudlnt know what its like to be
invited to a real conference, playing prestigious programs week after week, and
beating teams that end the season in the top 10!Tell you what, if
Oregon beats utah by more than the 54-10 margin beatdown we laid on you,
I'll become a byu fan for life.LOL!
Wait, the home game against the Idaho State Bengals is Senior Day for BYU!?Ouch.Yeah I'd be reading about Pac 12 football too.LOL
40. calWest Jordan, UT@ Chris BI know utah never
plays any easy games!-----------Not true. We played 3
easy games this year:1. Weber State2. BYU3. ColoradoWe still have two more games after this week so I Hope Wilson, Norris,
and York heal fast. We still have a chance to save this season from being a
No Chris. A loss IS NOT better than a win. Just ask the experts.And by
the way. Erickson will not be around next year. He will NOT go down with the
Whit.He is a one and done coach. Hang your hat on a few wins and a ton of
moral victories all you want and keep adding multiple layers lipstick. I'm
sure the bowl selection committees will overlook the 5-7 season and include the
7 moral victories in their consideration.
@ Chris BI know utah never plays any easy games!Weber
State- All i heard after that game was how good the utsies are. LOLAnd by the way the only reason utah does not want to play BYU the next two
years is becasue they need an easy game to rest from their schedule. That is
right BYU will always give utah a hard game.
@Chris BThe Stanford win was a complete fluke.Ducks
It will be interesting to see how Shulz does when he's able to come out as
the starting QB instead of being thrown into the middle of a game. Can't
hurt to have Murphy to throw to.Here's wishing all the injured
Utah players a speedy recovery.GO UTES!
It could be worse, we could be playing a nobody tomorrow for senior day, with no
real conference wanting us, and no future outside of fighting Utah state for the
second most prestigious program in the state!Whittingham and
Erickson have both proven they are capable of producing national title
contenders and top 10 teams. It's only a matter of time before
they take us back to where we belong. And yes, we are closer than our record
shows. Our lowly non power conference brothers would LOVE to say they beat
Stanford and took top 25 ucla, asu, and osu down to the last play. Any other utes agree this is better than beating up on nobodies this time of
OUCH! That is gonna hurt, especially since Whit promised us that Wilson was
100% and ready to go. Schultz will be like a deer staring into the scope of
rifle. This does not look good.New prediction; Ducks 65 utes 3
Remember when Utah had no chance to beat Stanford?Considering there
is one coach and one coach only in the state if Utah who has ever beaten an end
of season top 10 team, and that coach coaches for the PAC 12 utes, I like our
chances as much as we can against a great Oregon team. And their qb
is hurt as well. Shulz is going to play well I think. Make us proud utes!
What are you doing telling us about wilson's injury?! That is private info
and no utah "fan" should be in the least bit curious as to why wilson
Even Better! Go Ducks! 60-10
