Utah coach Kyle Whittingham walks off the field after congratulating USC head coach Ed Orgeron as the University of Utah is defeated by USC 19-3 in PAC 12 football Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013, in Los Angeles, Calif.


Ute football coach Kyle Whittingham minced no words after Saturday’s 19-3 loss to USC.

“We’ve got really no throw game right now,” he said. “Run game wasn’t a whole lot better.”

His pass protection was awful. His kicker missed one out of two field goal tries.

Which brings to mind the scene in “Stripes” where Bill Murray says, “In the last two hours I’ve lost my job, my apartment, my car and my girlfriend.”

To which fellow slacker Harold Ramis replies: “You still have your health.”

Not necessarily, pal, not necessarily.
