I hear many BYU fans saying, "we would be 4-0 with that schedule too!" Ok, I can
see that, but if Utah had BYU's schedule they would be at least 3-1. So what's
your point BYU fans? Utah would beat Washington, who is every bit as bad (or
worse) than Pitt. They would beat Air Force, They would have a good chance of
beating Florida State, (they might have lost this one). They would have also
beat Nevada. If Utah had BYU's schedule I don't see them any worse than 3-1.
Anyone care to disagree? I didn't think so!
Vegas Ute... Thanks !! " Nine players with rushing yards, nine players
with receptions, and eight touchdowns scored by eight different players."
If you were offensive or defensive coordinator at Iowa State who would you
prepare for? Reggie Dunn ? Getting smacked senseless by the
wrecking balls of Bird and Blechen ? Two highly ranked, signal callers and
an extremely deep and varied backfield ? A defense with a # 6 ranking ?
How does Iowa State prepare for a defense without noticeable flaws ? What a well played game-- without a penalty for 55 minutes ?. I am impressed
with the play yesterday but even more so when I went down the roster and looked
into the background of the Ute players. We have a strong, young class coming in
as RS Fresh and Sophomores. Being ranked among the top twenty in this part of
the year is a real plus and the exposure for the upcoming high school students
is prime time for recruits. Just having the University of Utah logo out in the
public eye for weeks on end at the beginning of the season is priceless. Utah
just continues to build strong, positive credentials and it's really starting to
show. GO UTES !!!!
Hey I have tried to post several things on the utes and the joke of their
schedule they have but the montoring gods don't like it.. then I read the stuff
they let slide on BYU from ute fans are you kidding...utes play a real schedule
then talk, I am more impressed with Bingaham High and their record than yours.
The yewts will lose one or two games this year and play in the Vegas Bowl. Even
if they go undefeated, the yewts don't deserve a shot at the BCS championship
due to their weak schedule. Good luck in the Pac-12! Best finish will be 3rd
VegasUteIn case you hadn't noticed, the logo on the field at RES is
still the MWC logo, which means Utah still ranks behind the independents.
More Sagarin rankings worth noting:Ratings by conference:2- PAC 107- Independents8- MWC9- WACLooks like
the Utes are heading in the right direction - Up!Go Utes! Go
@VegasCoug | 8:54 a.m. Sept. 26, 2010SOS smack from a BYU fan,
really? Congratulations on a #4 SOS rankings, please no
t-shirts.A couple more new Sagarin SOS ratings:#2 San
Jose State#4 BYU#5 New Mexico#112 Utah ... AP #13#118 Ohio State ... AP #2#137 Nebraska ... AP #6So, at
this point ratings as well as rankings are irrelevant but winning by demolishing
weaklings) is relevant. BTW Boise State has a #19 SOS, watch it nose
dive with WAC play begins.
@vegasZoob: The tds played the 85th ranked defense, were GIVEN the ball three
times in their own territory and could barely manage 13 points. Congratulations
on Sagarin SOS ranking, the tds is still horrible. I guess you better get used
to losing to WAC teams since they will be filling your "independent"
schedule!Nice job Utes. Whitt was trying so hard to NOT run up the
score that I think he cleared out the whole bench. Nine players with rushing
yards, nine players with receptions, and eight touchdowns scored by eight
different players. The U's talent runs very deep. This was a puff game, but it
got a lot of players playing time which bodes well for our future.Go
Utes! Heading in the right direction unlike li'l brothers down south.
Congrats to Coach Whit, the Ute team and the fans that attended the game. Wish I
could have been there. Despite playing a clearly inferior team, the utes showed
they belong in the top 10. Execution was amazing. A lot of mistakes are getting
cleaned up, and when utah makes it to 6 -0, expect ESPN and the other sports
broadcasters to start the comparisons to 2004 and 2008. Until then, lets keep
perspective.good thing the ap and coaches polls dont have any voters
in provo. Its much better to have somewhat objective voters who are knowledgable
about football.Hard to truly judge where the Utes fit into the top
15, but we can do some comparisons. Wisconson, who is very highly thought of,
did not have nearly as big as wins against UNLV and San Jose as compared to the
Utes. It will be interesting to see TCU play these teams before Utah matches up
with the frogs. The conference champion will obviously be between these two
"New Sagarin SOS ratings:Utah = 112BYU = 4"VegasCoug: of course our Strength of Schedule is low, we're playing BYU. If
BYU could play themselves, their SOS would be somewhere in the hundreds as
well.Here are some BYU facts that actually count:Total
offense: 98th (Utes 51)Total Defense: 102nd (Utes 6)Record: 1-3
(Utes 4-0)Average score: BYU loses 28-15 (Utah wins 44-12)
Wish I could have seen the game, but I'm in Mexico and only get to see the ESPN
games. However it sure sounded good on KALL on the net. Sounded like a well
oiled machine running smoothly. Now we just gotta keep turning up the RPM,s
until we get to TCU. I watched their game and I watched Boise St while listening
to the Utes. They both looked beatable to me. If the Utes can continue executing
like they did yesterday and keep oiling the machine TCU will be in for another
dissapointment at RES. We have a good schedule that looks like it was
systimatically laid out to help the Utes work themselves gradually into a great
year, if they just continue to take it one game at a time. Hang in there
Re: VegasCougOnly real stat that counts:University of
Utah = 4-0BYU = 1-3
I think it's funny with the Y fans talking smack when they are now 1-3. I guess
when you can't win games talk a good one instead.
I really wanted to watch the game, but I couldn't find it on TV? I thought that
the BCS bound Utes were added to the Pac 10 because of the national interest in
their program, but even the mtn. chose to televise UNLV vs. New Mexico? Just
Good game Utes!! The TCU game will be a good one. Most intelligent,
rational Cougar fans know when we play in SLC this season it will likely be a
loss for the Cougs. But hopefully the Cougar offense is clicking by then so it
will at least be another exciting rivalry game.Go Cougs and Go Utes.
New Sagarin SOS ratings:Utah = 112BYU = 4
Great win for a great team. One at a time.
What a beautiful day.
Ya ya ya. We have been playing cream puffs. But you can still see the progress
by way of better execution and fewer penalties. The team continues to improve
and it showed last night. The box score was very simular to the #1 team in the
country's (Alabama) when they played San Jose State. Utah typically improves and
irons out any issues as the season progresses. Utah should peak at the right
time when the tougher part of the schedule comes up. When the season is over we
can laugh at the nay-sayers (cougar breaths). Go Utes to the PAC12!
Why is it that little brother nay sayers are among the first to comment on a
Utah article? Could it be the despair has set in down in Provo? Of
course, the Utes won easily...this was SJSU...no it was not Nevada...but then
the Utes' challenges are ahead in November! By then confidence and experience
will greatly aid this team...perhaps had others down south down the same they
might not embarrassing themselves by whining on this board.
Always worth the drive from Idaho. The coug smack is funny. 4-0 heading in to
the bye, not a bad place to be.
I was looking for a few things tonight. The penalties were really cleaned up and
we stopped turning the ball over. It does feel like we have had a very long
preseason. I want to play a team that isn't the worst team in college football.
No offense to SJSU, but they are terrible. Go Utes!
It wasn't that much of surprise to see a 56-3 win considering SJSU could BARELY
beat SUU last week. A win is a win and we'll see what this team is made of in
the next few weeks.GO UTES!
Utes looking solid. As usual most of the media coverage in this market focuses
on BYU and their sinking ship, which is great for the U of U because they can
continue to take care of business week in and week out and just fly under the
radar.The U will continue to iron out the kinks. This team hasn't
even come close to hitting its potential yet, which is a scary thought for the
That is how you take care of business!! Way to go UTES and take nothing for
Way to dominate a down team tonight. I hope we are getting tuned-up for the
tough stretch ahead.A Utah man am I!!!
Even our 2nd and 3rd string players were killing them. Maybe if we let BYU
borrow the backups we're not using they can win a game.
Way to go UTES - an awesome win...again. Great to get everybody off the bench
and some valuable time on the gridiron. Good to have a game to continue to
improve and perfect the team and develop the players more.
I guess BYU wishes they SJU on there schedule???
Another great day to be a Ute!!!!
Jealousy is such a lonely word! Our last 5 will be tough. I realize that our
opponents haven't been tough but it does get tougher from here on out. We've
outscored our opponents 179 to 50 so far this year. They simply are taking care
of business. Iowa State is going down next. One game at a time.
Strong work all around. 4-0! Next month the schedule upgrades, but
this team has made great strides. See you in Ames.
Yankee Doodle: good to see the jealous BYU fans out again trying to be clever
with their witless knocks on Utah. BTW I saw that your team lost badly again,
this time to Nevada Reno. Wow way to go cougars. Maybe you guys should just
disband the football team now and save it from further embarrassment.
Beat a real opponent someday Utesies, no way you're undefeated with BYU's
Wow you can beat T-ville High, good job Utesies, woo hoo, NC here we come.
And we're doing it without any penalties (at least through 3 QTRs)
Thanks for taking care of business MUSS. I showed up late for the game because
I went to the byu nevadaa game to catch it in person.It was great.
Nevada's offense did as they pleased all game to that high school defense.That team will seriously go 4-8 this year. Good to know I
didnt have anything to worry about during the first half of our game.GO UTES
This is a surprise for who?
