    Unlike the BYU / SDSU game where it became necesary for our man in the booth, aka our 'ace in the hole' to 'win' the game for the team. Today's Ute game will simply not be that close.

    There is simply not enough preparation or time to set in motion the things needed to tip the scales in favor of the Utes when it comes down to a 'pivotal' call like that BYU/SDSU game.

    There's no way to save a sinking ship.

    Now all of you Ute fans get mentally prepared for today's game. Your star QB 'thinks' he's ready. I hope you are too!

    To show your support while at today's game instead of doing the 'wave' I suggest a new modification to it.

    Instead of standing and raising your arms just simply sit and tuck your head between your legs while booing! It's kind of like the fetal position. I know you can do it, you've had plenty of practice lately.

    Aztecs 35
    Utes 10

    Either way, Utah wins in this game.
    If they end up coming out on the bottom end of the score, they atleast will have been honorable in accepting defeat. Unlike their little brother who had a paid employee in the replay booth to make sure all questionable calls went their way. Shameful.

    Utah should win this game handily. Rocky Long´s defense is good, but I liked Whittingham´s comments. I think he is going to make more conservative play calls on offense and let the O-Line advantage play a major role in the running game and short passing game. No interceptions today.

    Go Utes!!

    This is going to be a tough game. If the Utes had the "replay booth" edge I'd feel more confident.

    Go Utes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Go Utes...would love to see SDSU take a beating - they earned it after showing true colors over the bad-call video replay.

    Dear Rock Of The Marne

    Little brother here to amaze and amuse you.

    I'm spending my time worrying about Utah instead of the Y because we still aren't even bowl eligible. I know it's a poor way to back up smack talk but it is all I have right now.

    After this weekend, when we are bowl eligible, I will then worry more about the Y.

    It will all be settled on the field next weekend. Fortunately for U it is your home game (not that it helped much against TCU). I anticipate a hard fought game. Would love to attend with you or maybe you can just come over to my place and we'll watch it in the theater. (Yes, boasting on my part.)

    Hey, your basketball team is 2-0. Does anyone else smell NC! (Just kidding of course. Just trying to amaze and amuse my new buddy.)

    Man I hope one day tds can win another a natinal championship! Is that what you call 1984 a natinal championship? I also hope one day their fans can learn how to spell!
    This is going to be a tough game if they come out the way they have the last two. Wynn needs to show his leadership, he has at times this year but this game and the next will prove his character. If he comes out struggling Cain deserves to play. Go Utes!!!

    Oh goodie, the little brothers are back yet again with there tales of doom and gloom for the U of U. Too bad you have to spend your time worrying about Utah instead of your team that still isn't even bowl eligible; that's a poor way to back up smack talk. You Cougar fans never fail to amaze and amuse me.

    If you guys lose tomorrow, yours will be one of the worst falls from grace in recent history. Less than a month ago you were positioning for a Natinal Championship!

    I hope you got the bugs worked out this week. SDSU is smelling blood!

    Whatever makes you feel better about your team David.

    Either way, it's going to be a tough game to try to get some confidence back for the Utes. I really hope they get it going, but if they don't, the Coug fans are going to be in full force leading up to TDS/Yewtie game.

    Hey yewties,

    If San Diego wins do you think they would be the #1 team in the country?

    After all.......

    Oh wait, I guess that means if San Diego wins byu would be the best team in the country since byu beat san diego and san diego beat yewtah.

    Either way - go aztecs

    end of an error: What? Georgia's so bad that you have to comment out this way. Utah rights the ship and wins 27-20

    I guess the Cougars beat a quality team. Good luck.

    San Diego really seems to play to the level of their competition this year. The majority of their games have been decided by 10 or less. They beat NM by 10, Wyoming by 10 and CSU by 5. I think this will be a close game. If Jordan Wynn can relax and just play, Utah will win by a TD. The Utah secondary needs to play better this week. Time to hand the Aztecs their first home loss of the year.

    Go Utes!!! 31-24 for Utah!
