    RE: Sammyg

    I have noticed that you use "cup cake" very often. Let me use it just one time.

    The last cup cake that Utah will have to play this year will be on Nov. 27, 2010.

    If any NFL team was playing in an NCAA conference, all their opponents would be considered cupcakes. Not because they are in the NFL and their opponents arent, but because they are just so much better than the other teams.

    Utah may only face cupcakes this year, even if they make it to the national championship game.

    Anyone got some frosting?

    Ripandstrip. Where do you find your logic? Don't put your house on this fame since you wanted to put money on it.

    AFA will not be a pushover especially coming off two losses. Utah has the potential of beating AFA by 30+. I think they will if they don't turn the ball over. I like our chances. You ought to worry about the WHY's upcoming dogfights with UNM, UNLV, and CSU. No prayer against Utah.

    It will be nice to see Utah finally get the chance to work up a sweat next week. While it is obvious that Air Force is a cut above the other cupcakes in the MWC, like BYU and Wyoming, I expect Utah to beat them in convincing fashion. The talent, coaching, speed, and depth of this Utah team will prove to be just too much for Air Force.

    Utah and TCU are the highest ranked teams ever, to NOT be seen on National TV this late in the season. Who are these guys?

    We won't even see their losses, Utah next week at AFA, and TCU the following week against Utah.

    By the time we see Utah on NBC against ND, they'll have dropped out of relevance.

    Your Hostess / Little Debbie Cupcake preseason games are now officially over and I'm getting excited for these next few games. Especially the TCU game. Can't wait to watch BOTH BYU and Ute games.

    As a true former citizen of Missouri, like your beloved Archie, I say "Show-Me".

    Many of the fans have already annoited the Utes as being the NC champ or title contender and have also said the BCS would never allow a travesty as last year's TCU / BSU game to ever occur again. Yeah right, the BCS will do what's best for its BCS schools. The Utes are nothing more than a peripheral blip on the radar scope at mid-season with their weak schedule.

    Football season for the Utes starts next week. Let the bluster and hype kick into overdrive. I'll be here in triage when the train wreck occurs whether it be caused by the Utes or the BCS. Either way I'll have a shoulder for you to cry on.

    Air Force 27 Utah 23, HATE TO SAY IT West Coast1 and VegasUte (good thing you are not a UNLV fan), but Utah will finally meet a team with some meat on their bones and GET SOME HUMBLE PIE, I will put money on that. And those who said BYU should be 1-7 because of some blown calls, also lost a fair share of calls, you give and take. By the way Asiata's touch down in the game against CSU was NOT A TD, would not of decided the outcome of the game, but clearly not a TD.

    Utah played very well. Congrats to the Utes on a dominant win. No need to get help from officials and no luck needed in this one.

    Concerned about the turnover, but Shaky seemed to bounce back from that just fine. Hope to see him bounce back even more next week!

    Even the back-ups were doing amazing things. It was great to see Shak back. Hope he gets into the mix a little more as well.

    Hope the injury report comes out clean after this game. There were a couple players taken off that didnt come back in. Even if youre in a secondary role, we still need you!

    Enough couldnt be said about Wynns performance though. This guy was lights out. He made smart decisions and not sure he really made any mistakes other than a couple underthrown balls. Very impressive.

    Play calling was again as strong as it could be. These coaches really know their players and scout out the other teams like a hawk before they play. I wonder how much time they spend in the film room?

    Go Utes!

    @Solomon Levi

    What's this new poll called?

    "My team is a cupcake so here's my hater-aid top-12 that I just created on my mom's computer" Poll?

    Utah's defense is playing as good as 2008 and the offense hasn't looked this good since 2004.

    Anything can still happen so I'm looking forward to ONLY the next game @AFA.

    Getting giddy about anything else is just silly, see September 2009 Provo Airport celbrations for details.

    Go Utes!!

    Funny, I haven't seen one jealous cougar fan post on this wall (with the exception of ripandstrip). Possibly because they've begun to realize that their constant slams against Utah's SOS doesn't change the fact that they are a very good football team. After watching them play against CSU, I don't think I've ever seen a more efficient football game in all aspects. Watch out Air Force, here we come!!!


    Pitt has a winning record. Check your facts before you post.

    Byu could easily be 1-7 if the SDSU fumble was called and the blatant pass interference was called in the WYO game. It must feel great to be 3 and 5 and rely on bad officiating to make you a crappy 3 and 5. Terrance Cain throwing for more yards than Heaps is laughable. Byu is pathetic and Heaps is way overrated. Utah, whether they lose to TCU or not will crush BYU. Prediction: Utah 45, BYU 13

    When you watched the 2004 team the game would be 10-3 in the 2nd qtr. and then you'd look-up in the 3rd qtr and it would be 48-14. The. 2010 team looks an awful lot like the 2004 team that I thought was more dominant than the 2008 Sugar Bowl team. If the Utes run the table the BCS is going to have a PR nightmare on it's hands!! Go Utes!!!!

    Ripandstrip: Another bitter zooby who's sole purpose with his post is to show his hate for the great Utes. What you don't realize, and cannot understand, is that your diatribe is the same garbage we heard from you zoobies two years ago, yet we went on to go undefeated AGAIN, and beat Alabama in the Sugar Bowl despite your hate filled rants. Just because you zoobies believe something, and think it is correct in your myopic zooby minds, does not mean it is correct or even relevant outside of Utah County!

    Keep up the great work Utes! Purely dominant performance today.

    I was impressed, however, with CSU's true freshman QB. His poise, accuracy, patience and maturity is head and shoulders above any other true freshman QB in the league. His stats today against the highly ranked Utes was impressive and were HEAPS better than the other MWC Frosh QBs I saw today. Congratulations to his coach who has taught him how to play and how to be mature rather than just talk about how great he eventually will be, then watch him consistently under-perform on the field!

    Go Utes! Go Crimson! On to Air Force!

    Good Victory today Utes!!!
    You have a good team again this year, with a lot of weapons, and are fun to watch. (Yes, you will probably beat my favorite team.)
    Unfortunately, however, national football polling is an imperfect world and certain teams/conferences are favored over others.
    It will be interesting to see if the pollsters vote Ohio State and Wisconsin to leapfrog the better team, Utah.

    You posted "They (Utah) have yet to play a team with a WINNING RECORD! YES, that is correct not one team they have played has had a winning record."

    You are wrong. Pitt, a BCS team, has a winning record. Iowa State, another BCS team, just defeated #19 Texas and does not have a losing record. In fact Utah has beaten more BCS schools since the BCS was started in 1999 than any other non-BCS teams. (They are 21-11. BYU and BSU both have losing records against BCS teams).

    The rest of your post in filled with your own anti-Utah opinions which, if you'd take the time to watch them play, you might realize how good this team is. (They're very similar to the 2004 undefeated Utah team.)

    In your post, you say that TCU has beaten some "very good opponents...including Oregon State and BYU." Huh? Do you realize that Oregon State is a mere 3-3? And BYU is 3-5, and could very well be 2-6 if not for the fumble against SDSU that was not called.

    I guess everyone is entitled to his own opinion.

    Oh Archie boy,

    What have you seen since the Pitt game(first game every team is rusty) that makes you believe Notre Dame, SDSU, and Air Force can even come within 25?

    Yes, we've had a few turnovers - but so does every team. And when you're average margin of victory over the past 5 or 6 games is like 50, the only team that has a chance is TCU.

    With the BCS title game on the line when TCU visits RES, the energy and excitement in the stadium will cause TCU's title hopes to come to a crash!

    Again I remind you BOTH ESPN and Sports Illustrated have stated Utah has a very good chance to play in the title game. If they believe it - why can't I?

    Have you seen the carnage going on in the Automatic AQ conferences? The only undefeated teams at the end of the season will be Utah and Boise. Utah's strenght of schedule will obviously make us jump them.

    The future of college football in the state of Utah is THE UNIVERSITY OF UTAH. The battle for second best in the state will now be between USU and Weber

    Ute's beat up on another very weak opponent! They have yet to play a team with a WINNING RECORD! YES, that is correct not one team they have played has had a winning record, (LAST I HEARD THEY HAVE THE 118TH WEAKEST SCHEDULE IN THE NATION). You cannot tell how good/or bad they are playing nothing but weaklings! TCU on the other hand has played some very good opponents and has beat them soundly, including Oregon St./BYU. Utes don't have a chance against them, I hate to say it. Also, I predict a upset with Air Force next week, they have not LOST at home this year!

    "And unless you play on the team - stop the nonsense of "let's focus on one week at a time." It doesn't matter..."

    It DOES matter. You are talking about Utah in the NC and completely discount very, very good teams in AF, TCU, and upset minded teams like ND, and SDSU which will be played on the road. This entire board knows that if Utah loses in the next two weeks, YOU will be the first in line criticizing the coaches asking how that could have happened because they were supposed to go to the NC.

    The program says..."one game at a time" and YOU would be well advised to support the Utes and Coach Witt in that focus. Join the program, my friend and support your team and your coach.

    Look at it this way...every July tds fans allow Dick Harmon to convince them BYU is an NC contender. Expectations soar to unrealistic levels and crash down to earth by the second week of September.

    That is NOT the Utah way. Please change your screen name and be a UTAH fan and support the program.

    After watching the TCU/AF game I don't think AF is going to be as tough as we've been conditioned ourselves to believe. TCU made it look easy and if we are as good as we think we are, and better than TCU, then this game next Saturday had better be easy too. But I know that AF always plays us hard.

    I Enjoyed watching the young guys get some playing time today, but it would have been nice to see Wynn throw for over 500 yards tonight. Had he played more than one series in the second half, he would have easily hit the mark.

    No cpmplaints on 645 yards of offense when the second and 3rd string gets the majority of the second half minutes.

    Big props to the second string defense as well creating the turnover against CSU's first string in the 4th quarter.

    I've said it since week 1 and I'll say it again.

    Utah WILL win the 2010 national championship!

    When you beat bad teams week after week by 50 or 60, you'll beat the good teams by 20 or 30.

    TCU will be the only minor threat - but with the MUSS 0% chance TCU leaves with a win.

    Both ESPN and Sports Illustrated have stated in recent weeks that Utah is a legit title contender.

    The power conferences beat each other up every week(with another #1 about to lose tonight). We'll jump boise after the tcu game.

    Mark it down. #1 in Final Poll.

    And unless you play on the team - stop the nonsense of "let's focus on one week at a time." It doesn't matter if I sit and think 24/7 about next week's opponent it won't change a thing.

    Well done today boys!

    Wow they looked good tonight. It was really fun watching the game. Its especially interesting watching a team who's able to pass and run. I thought this might be the case after a below average performance at Wyoming last week.

    Can't wait for Air Force. This AF game will be an all out dog fight as AFA will be coming off a two game losing streak after they lose to TCU. I think Whitt will have them ready.

    I'm making Utah's last trip to Colorado Springs with them to cheer them on. AFA is a cool experience.

    Go Utes...

    My prediction for next week is
    Utah 41
    Air Force 24

    Oct. 23, 2010 8:09 p.m.

    The BCS was able to play Boise vs TCU last year in a BCS game. But each time they try and get away with something like that they are then forced to not do it again. So the BCS will not have to non BCS teams against each other in a BCS game. So Boise and Utah will not play each other in a BCS game. If two non BCS teams get into BCS game this year they will play BCS team. It will then give them two chances to be BCS team and make the BCS look even worse then they already do. It just take one step at a time to slowly take the BCS down.

    And a few style points too.
    I think 59-6 is a very nice score.
    ISU won. Pitt won. Utah's computer ranking should improve.

    Looking forward to next week's game at AFA.
    Will be a tough game but Utah should be able to win it.

    Utes looked impressive today. Wynn should be pushing being ranked in the the top ten quarterback rankings on Monday. He was 13th before the game. Not too bad for a sophomore.

    The rest of the team looked like National Champs!! Keep it up and we are bound to go BCS bowling for our third time!! Sweet!
