It looks like a 4-8 schedule to me.
I have to admit that the Utes' schedule is grueling. I hope the Utes can
stay healthy and have at least a .500 season. I don't want to see Coach
Whittingham get fired. However, its non-conference games aren't a cake walk
except for Idaho State. Fresno State will play hard and give Utah a run for its
money. Unfortunately, a 3-9 or 4-8 season is a real possibility.
I have a feeling that the Utes are up for it.
And the trophy for the most difficult SOS schedule goes to...There
is no trophy.So all of this talk about a hard schedule serves
nothing but the excuses for when a team fails to make it to any level of
achievement, mainly a winning season and a bowl game.How many teams
that have played a "grueling, week in and week out' chart tipping SOS
actually go to the best bowls or ultimately play for a national championship?Very few. So I appreciate the continued story line of the
struggling Utes... SOS excuses and all.We've been hearing this
for how many years?
You're right, sammyg. If Utah instead traded their schedule, which
includes playing 5 ranked teams, to a schedule that included the worst teams
from several conferences like UConn, Virginia, and Cal, sprinkled with such
traditionally poor teams as UNLV and Savannah State, then they would be looking
at a potentially 11-1 or even 12-0 season. But where is the reward in that?Most true college football fans prefer to see their favorite team play
many challenging games, even if it means not having a hollow win total at the
end of the season.
GoRedWEST VALLEY CITY, UT"Most true college football fans
prefer to see their favorite team play many challenging games, even if it means

are seeing 'GoRed' is the different mindset between mid-majors like
byu (and its fans) and a P5 mindset which underscores the reason that byu is
right where it belongs. If the Utes can manage to put together
enough wins to make a bowl game, they will indeed have made a strong statement.
Bring on the competition and...GO PAC-12!!
Utah had the lead or was tied in the 4th quarter in 9 games last year. They need to finish games this year. Hopefully with another year of
experience Wilson can lead them to more victories in close games.
Love the Pac 12! Never get tired of putting Pac 12 stickers on or talking about
our Pac 12 conference. Competition is fierce, but that's how we want it.
If Wilson stays healthy this team goes bowling, guaranteed. As
always, Go Utes!! Go Pac 12!!
@sammygSOS is not being used as an excuse by any true Ute fan. Just
by nay-saying bluebies.Real Ute fans are stoked by having the #1
toughest schedule in the country. Facing top shelf competition makes the games
and wins all the more rewarding. The complete opposite of hollow,
meaningless victories over UNLV and Savannah State, mingled with other cream
puff games. Yep, byu is due to have a "special" season. Wake us up
when your November schedule concludes.
