You've had some really tough punch to the guts lately pocy so I understand your bitterness.

Go Utes, CA

@ Worf: 'The only stat that counts. Everything else are pathetic excuses.' By this I assume you mean head to head victories?

the truth

Head to head only proves you had a better day that day.

Statistically, and I mean all statistics, including recruiting, the teams are pretty much on par.

Other than being in the PAC12 utes have nothing to brag about.

I mean really! Bragging about beating team a mighty PAC team is supposed to beat? really?

No bitterness here, but it Donovan Wilson decomitting and going to TAMU after he said no to Bama is definitely a bummer.

"Utah has some big horses, but is finding you can't succeed in the PAC-12 with a team that is 1-deep at key positions. Guys are going to go down when you play tough competition week in and week out, and if you're not ready for that you can't be successful."

I think Utah is very close to finding that they can't succeed in the Pac12 under the current Head Coach and after this next season flops like all the rest, they will be looking to rectify that problem. Now, not only will the OC job at Utah be on a carousel but the Head Coaching job will as well.

Christopher B,
How is Utah doing recruiting wise against the PAC12 and also how are they fairing in competition? Why are you still comparing yourselves to a school and sports teams you claim to have put in your rear view 3 years ago!!!

Go Cougs!!!! Rise Up!!!

Correct me if I am wrong but I think that BYU is the youngest of the three schools and there fore has played fewer seasons! I think better stat would be wins counted from the year all three have played not just total period!!!

I actually think head to head is the better way to determine who is better.

Mcallen, TX


You misread.

I clearly stated four decades.

Too bad Barton decomitted!

Granstville, UT

Nicely spun, talking about how the only thing that matters is wins, with no consideration given to the level of competition against which the wins were "earned" for the coogs football team.

Yet, when the Utes basketball team record stood at 14-1, including the blowout of BYU, you posted something about how the record meant nothing because the wins came against lesser competition.

So, which is it, total wins or level of competition; you seem to argue both sides of this topic, depending on how it benefits your team.

Pocatello, ID


I read 4 decades, my point was why stop there? What is special about 4 decades vs the life of the program? You probably chose that number because it supported your argument.

Barton didn't decommit, he has enrolled in school and will be participating in spring ball.

It looks like Tukuafu is taking a pass on the utes and choosing Utah State!

Welcome to Aggie Nation Joe!!!

Pocatello, ID


You are correct.

The word is he originally was going to serve a mission, but changed his mind. Utah didn't have room for him to play right away without gray shirting. So he took the sure thing. Can't blame him for that.

Everything I am seeing and reading is saying Tukuafu is serving a mission before football at USU.

Pocatello, ID


My understanding is that Utah offered him as a sign and send, which was his original plan, but that he changed his mind and Utah didn't have enough scholarships available for this signing period (He would not have counted against the schollies this year had he served his mission before enrolling.)

As a U fan, I wish it had worked out at Utah, as an East High alumnus, I hope it works out well for him at USU, I think he will be a very good player for them.
