    Fellow Ute fans! Get ready to lose again if Whit actually starts Wynn against SDSU.

    Utes must avoid turnovers, Aztec boosters may ask for a foreit.

    Two observations. One, Utah better figure out how to score on a 3-3-4 and 3-4 defense or they can kiss bye bye to the final two games of the regular season. Two, any QB who slides instead of putting his head down and fighting for the first down needs to get benched. Period. It is sad to see a Div I QB who is afraid to get hit. Very, very sad. If I was Bronco, I would blitz every down!

    I just saw the replay on the punt block by Notre Dame It was not the punters fault. The blocker on the left side totally missed the guy coming in on his left. Its like he was starring straight ahead and had no clue a guy had gotten through and blocked the punt.
    Two ND players tried to block the punt and three Utah defenders couldn't stop them. Its enough to make you pull your hair out if you are Coach Whit. Two mistakes and whammo your down 14 points

    SDSU could be a make or break game for Wynn. A third straight meltdown could destroy Whit's confidence in Wynn and put Wynn's future as Utah's starting QB in serious jeopardy.

    Would Whit really want to risk starting Utah's PAC 12 era with such a question mark at the most important position on any football team?

    I think if Utah plays as well as they are capable of, and win the turnover margin, they will win at SDSU. Anything less and it could be another long day.

    Personally, the running game has got to be established early and often. Let that open up the pass and take some of the heat off of Wynn. If necessary put Cain in to mix things up.

    Sean Sellwood has done a nice job punting this year, as a whole.

    Did anyone notice that Jordan doesn't have the strings of the ball in the above picture? I know that happens, especially when there is a quick play. But, it's got to kill some of the accuracy!

    Here's to Jordan finding the strings!

    I am more concerned about Utah's defense for this game - especially their defensive backs. I didn't watch San Diego and TCU, but I heard San Diego on a few plays torched TCU's defensive backs and had some good passes. That against the #1 defense in the country.

    Utah - especially their defense - needs to really prepare well for this game.

    Go Utes!

    If Wynn folds again Cain should have a chance to play. Cain should have been put in the game against ND. What do you have to lose which they did under Wynn's guidance. Whit what were you thinking.

    Utah is going down hill and picking up speed in the lose column. I guess a 8-4 season is not bad with Wynn at QB.

    I love how everyone wants to put the past behind them. Lets forget about the blocked punt. My grandma even said..."Why is the punter taking so long to punt the ball." From day one the punter has always taken toooooo longgggggggg to punt the ball. Am I the only one to notice. Dah... He either fixes it or you get another punter. Do we wait for punt block number 3 or 4. Coaches comment.....Its was the blocking..Yeah right hit me with that hammer one more time it feels good.

    It's possible that Utah could play as well as they're capable of, and still lose to SDSU. The Aztecs might just be a better team than the Utes this year.

    "The location of their head, on the other hand, has everything to do with performance."

    The Romans felt the same way.

    Utah (and Jordan Wynn) teeters on the edge of salvaging a good season (career) or crashing and burning to end a once promising season (career). SDSU is a very good team and it's very possible that the Aztecs are actually better than the Utes.

    No more excuses.

    Saturday will go a long way toward validating whether this year's version of Utah football is the early 8-0 team or the dismal 7-47 and 3-28 team.

    Wynn should enter Qualcomm Stadium brimming with confidence about all of the success he's had there.

    If Wynn and Utah lay another egg in San Diego, stick a fork in them. This season is done.

    The location of the stadium has very little to do with how a player perrforms. The location of their head, on the other hand, has everything to do with performance. It doesn't appear Jordan's head is where it needs to be. Interceptions, stalled drives, sliding before the first down marker, etc. etc.

    Why won't Whit make the needed change? He needs to coach for this season and not worry about Jordan's fragile ego until January

    Playing @SDSU is a good test. Next year there's no more UNM, Wyoming, CSU in league play. So we need learn to bring our game or get used to being humiliated like the last two weeks.

    Can't wait to see if KW can make the changes that are required to turn this season around.

    Go UTES!!!
