    The tds undefeated season in '84 didn't beat a single top AP 25 team ranked at the end of the season, either. What does that say about your "so called NC?"

    It's strange think that the "QB factory" down south could learn a lesson from Utah regarding QB play. Ha ha. . .

    @DC: and the zoo is 1-2, soon to be 1-3. So what's your point?

    Go Utes!! Go Crimson!!

    Utes have a 3-0 record against teams with a combined record of 1-8.

    Thank you coach Whitt and coach Johnson for cultivating an atmosphere of family and unselfishness. The team and players are truly examples of team first and of class!!

    It is truly great to be a Ute!!

    Revenge will be oh so sweet on November 27!!

    Cougar, please enlighten me on what Utah fans "deserve" when we face Air Force.

    The team that puts the most points on the board is the only entity that "deserves" anything, and that is a win because they have the most points.

    If you are referring to a fan base deserving to lose because some of their members exhibit less than flattering behavior, well, the two are unrelated. If that were so, then every team would deserve to lose, even BYU.

    Wow, so much class from Utah fans and yet still all they can do is take shots at BYU.

    I hope you all get what you deserve when you face Air Force.

    Here is a good Ute article about a fine young man and athlete that just doesn't have true QB skills, not unlike another player Nelson who is also a team player and never complained or anything about his situation but doesn't have the skills to be THE man either, and it's funny how you just can't wait to comment and take shots at BYU, you Utesies are so obsessed with BYU its just a joke.

    And seriously Shawnm750? New Mexico??? its New Mexico. #114 in pass defense(USA today). Cain is a fine player and great guy but I don't think he comes anywhere close to the skills Kellen Moore has, he won a BCS bowl, you guys put a lot of stock in BCS wins. Cain hasn't won a BCS bowl, he beat a pathetic winless Lobo team.

    Cain is a class act. 20-23 against UNM is a great statistic. Considering that Kellan Moore of BSU, regard by many as the best QB in college FB right now, was 21-23 on Saturday shows just how good Cain is. Plus, we've got Wynn too. I think we'll see Cain getting plenty of play time this season, especially during some of our tougher games like TCU or AFA. What an advantage it will be to know that we can put someone like Cain in to give Wynn some rest, fully confident that we won't lose any momentum. That's how a real 2-QB system works...

    Great job T-Cain. Keep up the strong work---you will be needed!

    This kid has a great amount of character. He says that he got it growing up from his family. Boy, would I like to meet this family! Coach Whit and his staff have coached a lot of high character guys over the years, Eric Wheddle being another one.

    How lucky are to have Brian Johnson as QB Coach. He and Morgan have the mid-west Texas area for recruiting and they are a big part of the current successes of our QB's. Having the MVP of the Sugar Bowl as coach really is making a difference in the the Utes football program.
    No talk of a rebuilding year and there is no excuse for not making your mind up in fall two-a-days who your QB is.
    Rebuilding ? Remember that Coach Whit lost not just some great Seniors last year but also his offensive and defensive coordinators.That could be an excuse down south yet Whitt never batted an eye and went 10-3.
    I just don't see the coaches down at the Y as very good coaches. Judging by the performances so far I can't help but have some empathy for the student athlete coming to the Provo for a visit. Way to much chaos and confusion , poor coaching , and an unknown opponent to prepare for could discourage more than a few from signing their LOI.I'm not sure that they will want that kind of BYU EXPERIENCE.
    GO UTES !!

    Nothing but good to say about Cain and the coaching staff for keeping it "one game at a time" even if it is San Jose St.

    Go Utes!

    Coach Whitt needs to play Cain in every game on certain plays.He should be rewarded for his fine play and the team needs him and Wynn.

    Utes by far the best team to be a fan of, nothing but class all the way, they emulate their coach.

    TC is a great example for his team; it makes me think of my own need to be more team oriented, less selfish.

    Players reflect off their coach. Congratulations to Terrance, coach, and the Utes overall for winning the battle of character that carries through their whole life.

    Hopefully T-Cain leave Utah and can have a good career like Brett Ratliffe who spent his own share of games on the sidelines for the Utes but is in his ever important 3rd year in the NFL this year (qualifies for a pension after 3 years).

    Continued success.

    UteMans directly on point. Whittingham recruits players with character that are team players, not individual superstars (that generally ruin a team rather than make them great. Just look at the wake of destruction after T.O. and Deon Sanders went through several teams in the NFL)

    If there is no drama around the decision of who will start at qb, then why is the DN obsessed with it?

    a) they want to draw attention away from their beloved blue baby and all of her problems
    b) they love drama and are trying to make something out of nothing
    c) they arent creative, analytic or inquiring enough to actually write a real sports story (like maybe reporting on Shakerin, or utah ties with the trojans, or any of the other milion stories waiting to be reported on)

    That there is no controversy nor angst is a testament to Coach Whit's coaching and the quality of the young men he recruits. No focus on a position like those who think of tds at quarterback u. Refreshing!

    The Utes are filled with players that share this type of attitude which is what makes them great.

    They all talk about the next game and could care less about individual plays or stats. It is all about the team and getting better each week at Utah and the best players play.

    Credit Coach Whit for building this depth, with guys like T-cain who are ready when they are called upon.
