If BYU had our schedule, they would be undefeated too
Good win in a tough place to play, but I agree with some of the other posts. 3
interceptions, 2 in the endzone is horrific. Whit won't be too happy about
that. I think Wynn did a good job but needs to maintain his focus. He seemed
to be a bit lax on the sideline playing around rather than focusing on the game.
I wonder if the strength of schedule argument is going to be brought up next
year by Cougar fans?Bottom line - a win is a win, a loss is a
loss...unless you get blown out in every loss!
if Laramie was as beautiful as yesterday, I would gladly return but, I've also
been there when it was too cold to watch a game. If the Utes were to schedule a
home and home in September, it would still be fun. I was givem 50 yard line
seats, right in the middle of the stadium, in the Cowboy Joe Club section and
the fans were great to sit with. I live in Evanston and Wyo. fans are some of
the best. Isn't funny how the TDS trolls show up when their team doesn't have a
replay official to help them win (as if it would have mattered saturday). Utah
turns the ball over 3 times on the road and still wins by 24. TDS couldn't win
at home if they had the ball handed to them 3 times
@ NC UTES 2010 | 11:34 p.m. Oct. 16, 2010 "And again stop the "Let's
focus one game at a time" nonsense UNLESS YOU ARE ON THE TEAM AND YOU ARE
TALKING TO TEAMMATES. Yes - I can look ahead without it impacting
anything. Know why? We're not on the team."Knock it off!! You sound
like a darn Zoob talking like that. There are plenty of YBU fans that would
love to have you and your attitude among their ranks. Take that talk over to
Burgundy, 2-5, always a strong position from which to talk. It's
possible Utah will lose AFA and TCU, it's also possible that Utah would have
lost to Nevada, FSU and USU. But the fact is, BYU already did.
re:Cougar76You have a lot of bravado sticking your nose into the "making
fun of Utah" camp. I'd suggest a little big of humble pie at this point.If you watch college football every saturday you realize that Utah probably
isn't a top 10 team. But you can't take the wins away from them. They're
putting the scores up when others are falling to weak, unimpressive teams. They
may not have a great strength of schedule, but if the show was on the other foot
and BYU was playing this out, you'd be the first in line complaining they were
not #1 in the polls. Keep it up Utes. Run the table and lets see how the
BCS can handle it.
I have no clue what Wynn was thinking when he threw up those clunkers in the end
zone. They were not passes in the skill sense of the game. Did he think Asiata
could out jump anybody to get to one of those turkey's he put up in the air.
Second half of the game was an embarrassment to watch. Cain should have been
@sammygEven if Utah goes 8-4 (likely) next year in the Pac12 and BYU
goes 11-1 (unlikely) Utah will end up in a better bowl and will receive more
exposure. In reality, Utah could go 9-3 and still play in the Rose Bowl.
Membership has its' privelages! Go Utes!
We never have to go to Laramie again!!! Hooray!!! What I'm most impressed by
today is the defense. Great game by them! The offense looked pretty good too,
but we've got to clean up the turnovers. Even so, taking into consideration that
two of the turnovers came in the red zone, 30-6 is pretty good. @
sammyg and cougar76,2-5 must sting. I understand why you're taking your
frustration out on the Utes' strength of schedule, but, in the end, our team
keeps winning and your team keeps losing. Say what you want, but try not to
choke on it when Utah thrashes byu just like all of the other weak teams on
their schedule.Good win UTES!!!
I'll take the win. Goodbye Laramie, you will not be missed. Not the prettiest
game, but a win is a win. Defense looked great. Offense was a little stiff,
but still productive. Wynn made some bad decisions, they need to be eliminated.
He still is a very solid QB. Now the focus is on CSU. Great time for the
When is the U finally going to play someone? I mean a great High School teams
could give some of the teams on their schedule a good game! Enjoy the ride until
TCU comes calling and hands you your hat! TCU 34 Utah 10
SammyG and Zooby76: Seriously? Have you nothing better to do than demonstrate
your jealousy and bitterness on our story? You just scored 3 points today and
you are talking about SOS? Too funny. We will play our tough games while you
move on to your "cupcake" stage of your schedule. We will take the games one at
a time and if we win all, we will deserve a BCS game. You, on the other hand,
will struggle with our "cupcakes". If you win all the rest of the games you are
supposed to win, you will be 6-6 and maybe get an invite to the New Mexico Bowl.
You can't slip up once or you will not be bowl eligible. After what CSU did
today, I highly doubt you will get past them.Just remember, we will
take the games one at a time, even our remaining two "cupcake" games: CSU and
the zoo.Congratulations to the U and to coach Whitt on the win
today. Not a pretty one, but still VERY dominating at War Memorial Stadium. It is a great time to be a Ute.Good luck to Wyoming next
week on their "cupcake" game.
Several more top 10 teams lost. Boise will eventually lose to Nevada. Utah
will pull out a close one against TCU. That's right - it's happening. #1 by
the end of the season.And again stop the "Let's focus one game at a
time" nonsense UNLESS YOU ARE ON THE TEAM AND YOU ARE TALKING TO TEAMMATES. Yes - I can look ahead without it impacting anything. Know why? We're
not on the team.We sound stupid when we act like we are on the
team.Anyways - NC UTES 2010!
I'm glad the Utes showed up ready and got the win. We probably should have taken
this one by a wider margin, but to come away with the win on the road is
great.Wynn, Wynn, Wynn--ouch! Three interceptions was hard to take.
But I'd rather have Wynn give up some interceptions in this game--a game where
we can afford the turnovers--than the Air Force or TCU games.So
One game at a time and just worry about your own team. 6-0 is still 6-0. The
Utes schedule will get tougher but they just need to take care of themselves. GO
Utes. Good win today
The Utes are winning, one cannot complain about their SOS, it is what it is.
BYU is struggling, but I look at Florida and the great UB and quess what,
they're also struggling. There are up years and down years and this is a down
year for BYU. I remember some very disappointing down years for my Huskers.
You have to accept the bad with the good. Kudos to Utah! they are doing what
they need to do. A NC, doubtful, after their loss to TCU, but they are having a
great season. The NC game may be TCU v. BSU. That would be something!
@ Ibleedcrimson... cry me a river."Hey admins please explain to me
how you can silently delete 4 out of 5 of my post's but somehow sammyg's is ok,
seems to be a real BYU bias."Gee, did I offend someone? I simply
state that the Utes did not shutout the Cowpokes, as predicted, Cowboys moved
the ball better than anticipated AND that a NC is a long shot.Whine
all you want. The fact is that there is plenty of REAL football ahead for the
Utes. Not these Hostess cupcake games. Play a tougher schedule next year and
let's see if the move to the PAC-12 will play out like you think it will. Can't
wait to see these next few games.
@sammygUtah played a sloppy game with 3 INTs in the endzone yet
still beat them by 24 points.I rather beat a cupcake then be one.
The cupcake down south now has been blown out 9 times since 2008.What do you know about playing the big boys by going 3-2 in Vegas. Last time
you played in January was 1996.It was a good win by Utah but like
said sloppy. We can get away witheir against the 2 remaining cupcakes CSU and
BYU but the other 4 games we can end up losing.Go Utes!!!
It's funny how people get jealous just because another team is winning and
their's is not. They come up with all kinds of excuses to put them down. Teams
play the schedule put before them and they are not the ones that make the
schedule. Congrats to the the Utes and how well they have performed. Byu
played well today against TCU but just didn't have enough to stay with them.
Good luck to both teams throughout the rest of the year. GO UTES!!!
Thanks DNews for deleting my post, would really like to know why. Was it because
I'm very doubtful of a NC bid for Utah????Think its funny that rabid
Ute fans are beseiging the BYU / TCU story and having their day en masse and
little o' me here on a story with 13 comments and I get thrown out for a straigt
forward comment on the game and a response to a NC comment.Mesquite,
I never said the Pokes moved the ball "at will", your words not mine. I
mentioned the fact that they moved ball. You would think that with all the
pregame hype that this game would be worse than Iowa's spanking last week. It
wasn't. The Cowboys actually did a better job than what any Ute would admit
pregame. Everyone said this would be a shutout, didn't happen.SOS is
going to bite the Utes and they still have to get by AFA, TCU and albeit a
struggling BYU.Though some big boys fell this weekend, these are
just blips. If you want to run with the big dogs you better play them. Ain't
happening for the Utes this season.
cougar76Will someone explain to me how a fan of a team who is 2-5
can trash talk against a team that is 6-0. It's like the player who trash talks
while his team is down 50.Record is the only thing that matters.
Six wins against teams with losing records. WOW. BYU? Technically SOS is
based on the opponent's win/loss record, not BYU loses. Five loses with four
against top 25 teams. BYU's SOS is lightyears ahead of the ewe. Oh, and I
recognize BYU's season for what it is, so I'll sleep fine, thanks.
ibleedcrimson...how appropriate. The bloodletting starts in two weeks.
"How many teams leapfrog Utah's LOL SOS this weak?"Probably a few,
the Cougs SoS rating should jump up though with their 5th loss. Hope that keeps
your warm at night!!
What a great day for football in the Beehive state! Both Utah and BYU beat the
spread by two points!!! Good times!
Sammyg,Although I agree that the Utes looked aweful in the win it was
still a W. But how can you, with a straight face, say that the Pokes moved the
ball at will? 183 yards for them. Are you trying to be funny? Took care of
business, that is what the Utes did. Wynn concerns me. He is quite high on
himself and hopefully those three, count'em 3 INTs will humble him a bit. A W
is a W.
Game points: 30-6Style points: 0How many teams leapfrog Utah's LOL
SOS this weak?
It wasn't the Utes best game offensively yet the still won by 24 on the road.Hey admins please explain to me how you can silently delete 4 out of 5
of my post's but somehow sammyg's is ok, seems to be a real BYU bias. I'm sure
this will be deleted to, you have my email feel free to send me one, go ahead
Disappointing win! The Wynn was terrible throwing three interceptions, two in
Wyo's end zone! We should have scored at the end...just to be closer to TCU
butt kicking...the truth is if Wynn doesn't throw the interceptions and we score
and Coach Witt does not decide to be merciful at the end...we should have beaten
them by more than TCU!!
#1 OSU lost.#5 Nebraska lost.#10 So Carolina lost.Utah
will move 1, 2 spots to either #9 or #8 in the polls.Good win
today.Utah probably will not play in Wyoming again for a very long time
--if ever.6-0 is much better than 1-6, I will tell you that.
The BCS is such a joke... Michigan State and Auburn still unbeaten while twice
beaten Texas knocks off Nebraska and the mighty Buckeyes looking typically over
confident before losing a miserable effort against Wisconsin. But the lame
Ducks of Oregon will now move up to number one while Boise State, TCU and Utah
remain pushed to the side...Typical!!!
Hasta la vista, adios, adieu, good bye to Laramie. Good bye to New Mexico. The
only town I'll miss is San Diego and Las Vegas. Hello San Francisco, Los
Angeles, Seattle, Eugene, Phoenix, Tuscon, Boulder, Pullman and Boulder. Oh and
I have said it since week one and I will say it again. Utah WILL win the
national championship this year
Good win for Utah. Not quite the offensive show as last week but still a solid
win in a tough environment (so long Laramie). Go Utes.
I have to agree with the Utah haters with regards to our SOS. Did you see what
Oklahoma did to ISU? We haven't beat anyone yet, so it's hard to tell how good
we are. I don't like all the turnovers. You'd think six games into the season
they could get a handle on that one. It will be interesting to see how this
season unfolds.Go Utes!
Way to take care of business UTES!! We will definitely be moving up thanks to
Nebraska & South Caroling losing.
