@WorfPlease try to rationalize to me how BYU is the best team in the
state? If only there was a way that those two teams could play during the season
to prove who was better.............Go Utes
This is one Ute that is happy not to be playing BYU again for awhile. Been
there, done that, done that, done that, & done that.
WORF- BYU played Utah and they couldn't beat them. BYU has only beat Utah 3
times in a dozen years. In a head to head match-up, Utah is simply better than
BYU and probably always will be.
I would love to see a BYU-Utah rematch.BYU is the best team in Utah,
and this would remove all doubt.Unfortunately, the utes will be home
for the holidays.
Utah-BYU would sell tickets, but probably not nearly as many as BYU-Washington
or BYU-Arizona.Also they have to worry about TV ratings and Washington has
the 14th + 75th largest tv market. Arizona #12.ESPN owns the broadcasting
rights and makes their money on advertising ESPN will push for a big market team
when available.I would say Utah BYU playing in a bowl game a 1% chance.
As a person who cheers for the Utes realistically I think it is less than
a 10% chance they have a bowl.
The College Football Experts agree that Utah is not going to the Fight Hunger
Bowl.I would ask that if you are to claim that I am wrong you post
an informed intelligent counter point (with some form of evidence).Please this would be interesting to see this be accomplished, such an arduous
yet easy task.
@BESmart,Yes, you are wrong. Again. Tell me, how would it feel if
Utah got invited to the byu bowl? The bowl committee could likely pick Utah as
they know a byu/Utah game would sell tickets, and that's all they care
about. Do you guys want another rematch, or would you rather avoid the
embarrassment of being the first NCAA team EVER to lose 5 times to their rivals
in 4 years?It would also be funny knowing that in a horrible year
for Utah, we went to the exact same bowl that byu would go to, even if they had
Andy, no need to depend on outsiders to provide us laughs. All we need are a few
more PAC window stickers and Chrissy B's annual Rose Bowl guarantee and
we'll have all the laughs we need.
@ Chris B.Utah may very well win out, but Utah in a bowl is highly
unlikely.There are currently 65 Bowl eligible teams with most teams having
two games left to play.The SEC will not fill 1 slot the Pac-12 will finish
with 2 extra bowl eligible teams, the Big-12 will finish with 1 open slot, the
Big-10 with 1 open slot, the AAC with 1 open slot, the ACC 2 extra teams.The Sunbelt and MAC will finish with a combined 5 or more extra teams (this is
what hurts Utah) and the MWC, CUSA will fill their slots.So the BCS
conferences will have 4 open slots when you add that with BCS at large bids that
is 7 open bowls. So out of the 7 open bowls 5 have contracts with the MAC,
Sunbelt, and Notre Dame to fill the vacancies.That leaves 2 open slots the
Beef-O-Brady and the Military bowl one played in Florida and one in Washington
D.C.I doubt that two east coast bowls would pick the U over North
Carolina, Rutgers, Syracuse, and Pitt, even Arizona and Washington State.I
could be wrong.
Well, there you have it. A guarantee - in all caps no less - from the #1 (volume
of comments) U football fan. I guess that means mark it down?! Too funnyI do have a question though - Does having the 'hardest schedule in
the entire country' count as an extra moral victory? If so I think that
makes U 7-0 in moral victories, and might just be enough to push you over the
edge and into the 1st Annual Moral Victory Bowl, held this December at the new
foaming ice bath in East Salt Lake.
Travis, you are a stud and I will miss you at QB. I hope you have a full
recovery and get to use the remaining two years of eligibility at Utah.Utes will own WSU and win 31 - 17.All the haters had better focus
on their own game this weekend. With losses to Virginia (seriously, they are 2
and 8) and Utah (one win in the Pac 12) your only good win was over Texas. So
TDS save your breath for next year's pre-season discussion about your
national championship. I need a good laugh after this season.
We are better than Washington State. Our defense is playing great, and I think
after seeing a great Oregon defense, Shulz will be more than able to handle the
offense. It may be by 1, it may be by 20, but I GUARANTEE Utah wins out and goes
bowling. Proud of the way the guys just battle every week against
the hardest schedule in the entire country.Go UTES!
We will win washington and there byu coach by 27!Utes 58WSU
12Go write it down!
I'm optimistic about Schulz. I thought he played well for having to start
his first game on the road at Oregon. The receivers dropped passes that should
have been caught. Lets just hope he can stay healthy the rest of the
way so we don't have to burn Manning's redshirt.GO UTES!
BYU fan spending his time reading Utah articles and jumping on the bandwagon of
any team who might have a chance to do what his team can't ever do?
Original.Who's your daddy?
Mercifully, we only have a couple of games left to endure.
