@Samurai JakeBetter than losing to Wazzoo and Colorado this week LOL
The Cougs are on their 3rd game of a multi year contract with the Broncos... We
now have split, they have won one and the Cougs have won one... To me
that's a rivalry and a much more competitive one than the old BYU vs Utah
game...Boise State has Classy fans, we both respect each other, and
Boise State is a much better football school than the utes... The Broncos won
the first 3 games in the series (one by one point on a BYU missed "go for 2
attempt with 3 minutes left t o go in the game and the one before that BYU lost
by a couple of points when BYU's game winning FG bounced off the cross bar
at the very end of the game... The first game in the series they won decisively
and BYU won decisively this time.By the way, how have the utes done
against the Bronco's??? LOL.
BYU fans bragging about beating their "rival" BSU? This has to be a
joke. BYU has beaten Boise State ONE TIME in school history. That's not a
rivalry. While I admit it's fun bagging on the Utes' new
"rival," BYU fans can do better (and be more clever) than that.
So chris b, I understand that the utes are having their banquet again this year
at Chucky Cheese Pizza... I also heard that it's scheduled for the 27th of
December and that everyone is going to get a participation trophy... I only hope
that it ends in time for all of them to rush home and catch the Fight Hunger
Bowl on TV... They will be able to see a more deserving team from their
conference get beat by the Cougs... At least one Utah team made it
into a bowl game (again and again) I kind of feel sorry for the
players though... Had they decided to go to BYU (assuming they were recruited by
the Cougs)they could have enjoyed bowling during the holidays their entire
college career... year after year... Go Buffs!
@samarai jokeLosers gain perspective, it looks like utah
"fans" have gained a lot of perspective.
worf, Mcallen, TX said,"All right boys!Let's have a good
turkey dinner, and forget football for a few days."C'mon,
Worf! Being a Texan you know there are at least 5 televised FB games on Turkey
Day, PLUS your friendly local Turkey Bowl....
chris b,Not true, we did beat our rival this year... handily...BYU 38 Boise State 20...Btw, how have the utes done against
Boise State??? lol.
Tell all the Seniors to invite their friends and family... It's going to be
open seating... I'm expecting 25,400 in attendance... Come on and root for
your home town team to escape the cellar and "snag" that coveted 5th
place in the 6 team southern division of the big bad pac12... lol.
4 of Utah's 7 losses came to teams currently ranked in the top 25. BYU only
played two and lost to them both. BYU would have lost 3 or 4 more games had they
had Utah's schedule. I would rather see Utah play the best and lose than
play BYU's schedule and go to a bowl game. Sure i'm
disappointed that the Utes didn't do better this year. But at least we can
hold our heads up and say we took our best shot, which is more than BYU can say
given their weak schedule.
@jarka-rus:Nothing like beating Idaho State on Senior Day to give
your fans a false sense of accomplishment, lol
All right boys!Let's have a good turkey dinner, and forget
football for a few days.
@Chris:BYU did beat its rival, and looked good doing it: BSU 20, BYU 37.
Let's see if the Utes can best that margin of victory against
their rival. Good luck with that.LOL
Brad,byu isn't our rival. Why are you confused? LOLI said Colorado has proven a better rival than our last
rival.LOLWhy are you confused?
Colorado want's to send their seniors out with a win also?Something has to give.
@ Chris BI thought BYU was not your rival anymore? So confused LOL
@ Chris BYour win over BYU and Stanford this year means nothing both
@Chris BIts just too bad that Byu's season doesn't hinge on the
Utah game lol, whoop deee doo for U though good job.
@ Chris BWhat happened to wining the last two games "Mark it
Down". You know and everybody knows that utah can't play with the big
Well, we can still accomplish one thing byu couldn't: beat our rival. So
far, Colorado has proven a better rival than our last rival. Go
Not even Chase Hansen will save this sinking ship.
but but we get lots of money because other teams are going to bowl games, that
makes us better than you.
Wow whats up doc? now that is one sweet PAC 12 carrot the best available go utes
Nothing like beating Colorado to give yourself a nice warm fuzzy feeling about
your season, lol
Utah and Colorado look evenly matched on paper. This should be a great game.
I'm picking the Utes with the home field, but this could have a dramatic
ending just like the Utah vs. Colorado game 2011.And yes there are
some bragging rights that go with the game. The loser of the game captures last
place in the South. Good luck to U.
"Now that going bowling is out of the picture....."'Nuff said. Mark it down. Better luck next year.How did
this team ever beat Stanford?
I did not see any of the ute's game as I was out of town at another
football game which turned out to be a bit disappointing as well, but it is
pretty obvious that utah is not what their "fans" thought they were. I
can go back and get the quotes if any of you want, you know the immediate
"rose bowls" and "pac 12 south titles", even "national
championships" that sort of stuff.It is an interesting thing
when reality bites you as it so obviously has bitten most utah "fans".
Sure some of you, like christina, are still completely deluded, but most of you
are at least now somewhat aware of what you are and what your place in the pac12
really is. Someday utah will have a great year, someday they
actually will make it to the rose bowl, someday those things will happen, it is
probably just going to be a long time before it does. In the meantime you can
keep celebrating the accomplishments of other pac12 schools because conference
is all that matters anyway, your own team is just secondary.
The Utes are not going to a bowl...Mark it down!!!
Good luck to the Utes this weekend.
Not matter how much perfume you pour on a skunk, it's still a skunk.
I haven't seen the improvement everyone was hyping. I see Utah came out
and played well the first half of the season, but have dropped off considerably.
I'm curious if Whitt's attempt to get everyone to buy into the
"we are improving even if we can't win" mantra if Utah loses to
Colorado again works. Go Utes. don't lose to Colorado again. Please.Either way something has to change for the coming years. Bring it.
Why send them out with a win? They had their opportunity to win the games they
should have. Just because they spent all their energy on the one game they want
to win every year and sacrifice all the others in hopes they will get lucky and
catch a few teams off-guard, does not bode well with history. The u has tried to
rub it in to anyone who they played in the MWC that they were somehow better
than anyone else and has failed to prove anything other than that they are a
legend in their own mind and just a wanna be to everyone else. No
bowl game for the second year in a row spells disaster for the team on the hill,
but looking up at the other teams in the state.
As much fun as it is to rip on each other all season long, I honestly hope these
seniors are able to go out with a win. The ball doesn't always bounce the
way we hope it will, but from a a Cougar, these guys deserve it. Good luck on
Utes 8-18 vs Prestigious PAC-12. You don't belong!!!!!!! Yes you guys won
the state championship this year. Congrats......not much to brag about. You
belong in the mountain west with Utah state and so does BYU. Downwards and
I'm excited for the Utes and this last game. Nothing like the Buffs coming
to RES and fighting for the coveted Golden Buffalo Chip Trophy right fellow Ute
fans?Obviously this is kind of an anti-climatic end of a not so
great season, nothing like 2011, but it's what we are used to these
days.Since nothing is on the line we can just sit back, enjoy the
game, plan for the holidays and speculate about the several coaching changes
coming down the road.Go Utes, Go Buffs... everyone gets
participation trophies and PAC 12 stickers!
The Utes will win - mark it down!
This is what dreams are made of, playing Colorado to crown the 10th best team in
the Pac 12. Either way, I've already got another batch of Pac 12 stickers
ordered and on the way!
It's a battle of 4-7 teams to see who will finish 10th and who will finish
11th out of 12 teams...not exactly the kind of game that you hope to play at the
end of the season.Best of luck to Utah this weekend, although I
can't help but feel a little sorry for them. I imagine Ute fans are more
than a little disappointed with how their season is wrapping up again, and
rightfully so. Still, it would be nice to end that 5 game losing streak.
Get a final win for the seniors and for Coach Whitt. Nice to send him on his way
with a win.
...why the Utes would wait until the last game of the season to "win for the
This is what's its all about in a prestigous conference! A big rivalry game
at the end of the year! Can't wait for Saturday! We will win Colorado by
32.Utes 32Colorado 17Go Utes!
Utah has had winnable games, Oregon State, ASU but didn't get the job done.
This football seasondidn't work out. Travis Wilson may never play
again but hopefully he can recover.
It doesn't feel right to me to have Utah playing Colorado and BYU playing
Nevada on the regular season finale for both teams. In a down
(non-bowl-eligible) year, wouldn't the Utes rather play BYU in late Nov.
with the possibility of ending the season with an actual meaningful victory?I'd like to see BYU have their final 2 regular season games come
against Utah and Utah St (1 home and 1 away) every year.
Just make sure it's a rumble, not a stumble.
Good thing MUSS seating isn't first-come-first-served because the line
would already be forming for Utah's big "rivalry" game.
