    What's a "skapegoat" ??

    Thanks MiP:

    I apologize if it looks as if I paint with a wide brush.

    I just really miss the days of the rivalry when it was fun, when smack talk was a lunch bet before the game, but I could show up with my buddies for a Utah game and cheer for the Utes. People seem to make you want to choose, and hate, and that is what I refuse to do.

    On the bright side, no one got stabbed...

    If BYU was able to come to Utah and lose by just one point, being the BYU team we've all seen this year....Utah is going to get creamed by Boise State. It is destined to happen with or without Wynn, though now you will have a skapegoat.

    Get over it folks. Wynn is the future of this team. He gets the surgery and will be back, ready to go next year.

    Side Notes:
    ---Veritas has proven not to be a hater.

    ---bradleyc, as far as justifying the BYU fans hate because of foul language by Utah fans in the background of a press conference...I have my doubts. Hate goes deeper than that. Plus, foul language is replete at most institutions and tons of sporting events (just not necessarily BYU---outwardly).

    The foul language is unfortunate, but I'm not sure it justifies hate. Although, perhaps, if those certain Y fans can't understand that...it's good thing. It means they've probably lived under a shelter of naivity.

    Too bad for Wynn. I think Cain has a winning record when he starts doesn't he? Utah just entered a win-win situation: Lose and that is because they have no starting QB; Win and they are an amazing team with a great bowl win streak who beat the odds. Win or lose Utah has a winning season and if byu loses they have a losing season.

    BYU you are in a lose-lose situation. Win and oh well we expected a win against an inferior team; lose you look horrible and continue your tradition of losing bowl games.

    And Utah still beat byu this year if I am not mistaken. So the silly hateful comments from the blogging byu regulars above seem really desperate attempts at having a life and/or convincing yourselves you are intelligent and/or need some kind of attention.

    I personally Hope Utah, BYU, AirForce, Oregon, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Nevada, Iowa, Arizona, ARMY, NAVY, Syracuse, Stanford, TCU win. I wish college football wasn't ending too.

    I felt that he was suffering from an injury after watching him this year. He hasnt looked the same since last year poor kid. Hoping for a speedy recovery!
    Nice classless comments coming from tds and bandwagon fans.

  • Jordan Lynchburg, VA

    There are just as many classless fans on either side, that is extremely evident simply by reading these comments. But there is absolutely no need to call an entire fanbase classless, that is called a sweeping generalization. For those of us that realize that football is a game, we have our fun with it and enjoy it, but it's not our life. It's like the guy who still wears his letterman jacket from high school and goes to all the high school parties for years after he graduates, he just ceases to be cool. Don't get too caught up in this stuff and get angry, geeze it's just a game. Get over it. And go Utes, I support them no matter what.

    Thanks for all the well wishes from the cougar fans. I thought this was an article about an injured Utah QB that has tried to tough it out all year.

    We actually don't need any bowl predictions from a delusional fan base of a 6-6 team that just lost to us 17-16. Just go enjoy the New Mexico Bowl, I hope you can pull out a victory and bolster that awesome win percentage you have in bowl games.

    2 out of 3, 6 out of 9....Burton is still unblocked, take your pick and go away!

    Curious how geniuses like Yankee Noodle and Veritas are on a site about a story that how nothing to do with BYU, yet bang on Utah fans for being classless. Apparently life, ( and BYU football ) really has nothing left to offer you. But as you're certain to read this and both like to bring up past fan behavior, I challenge you to visit the archives and read the posts when it was announced the BYU coach Dave Rose had been diagnosed with cancer. Then pop back on and tell me how "classless" Utah fans are.
    Until then, have fun playing ... UTEP, is it ??
    Stay holier than thou .. We've come to expect nothing less.

    I am now understanding you. Your dictionary got wet in the rain blurrying the definition of classy.

    I know, it sounded cute when you sat down to type, but it just seems like you are trying too hard.

    Anyone who has been to RES for a BYU-Utah game knows what I am talking about.

    You know it.

    I know it.

    It's not booing your injured QB, or thowing things at the visiting coach. It's not having a Jr. LB go after the kicker at the end of the game.

    This is not hate my friend, it is reality.

    Call it hate if you cannot handle the truth, but it is what it is.

    Me, I hope Cain shows up at the Vegas Bowl and Utah gets the "W", Wynn has a great year next year in the PAC, and Boylen gets booted, and a quality coach comes in to coach the U.

    I also hope that Utah fans learn moderation, can learn how to both win and lose with class, and enjoy their holidays with family and friends.

    Not derogatory wwokie...

    Sorry, not everyone is wired the same way as the classless red masses.

    To all of you delusional Utesies thinking Cain will come out in the bowl game and dominate.
    yes he has only one loss as a starter, and guess who that loss was against? What do ya know a real opponent. Oregon, and he was bad in that game. The Utesies D was the only reason they were in that game at all. Yeah just like Wynnie he beat a bunch of patty cakes. He WILL not beat Boise State. Kellen Moore and company will bring the beat down. No lazy Alabama team with half their team either hurt or suspended. Goobye Utesies have fun in the Pac-12 basement.

  • bradleyc Layton, UT

    Anyone who wants to understand why BYU fans hate Utah need look no further than the post game press conference held under the south end zone when Bronco Mendenhall was being peppered by inappropriate language from Utah fans during the interview. A ton of editing was done before airing the comments. Nice class Utah fans.
    I hope mr. Wynn heals quickly. I hate to see any good athlete hurt. Might give Utah an excuse for a bowl loss though.

  • yankee doodle Layton, UT
    Dec. 5, 2010 4:15 p.m.

    Wow, the Utesies bowl game just became the toilet bowl, cuz they are going to get hammered by at least 40, especially if they face Boise State. hahahahahah, can't wait. What makes any of you think Cain will roll their bowl opponent, he threw 2 picks against this supposed pathetic, pitiful, ridiculous BYU team.

    And hey MenaceToSociety? go back and read the comments from all you classy Utesies fans when Riley got hurt, I seem to remember a bunch of classless comments.
    This injury doesn't say anything about Wynnie, he will still blow in the Pac-12

    Utah 17...BYU 16...

    I hope Wynn has a speedy recovery and am excited for Cain to start in his final game.

    Hopefully this injury accounts for why Wynn was looking better last year than this year, and, hopefully it's a sign that with full recovery he can be an awesome quarterback once again.

    As for the Vegas bowl, I hope the Utes get the best opponent possible. I would rather get the chance to compete and lose to a great team than beat a crappy team any day.

    Go Utes!

    I am now understanding you. Your dictionary got wet in the rain blurrying the definition of classy.

    Sorry to tell ya, but it really does not entail posting derogatory comments on a story about some other team. That is part of the definiation of hate.

    So I guess that means when Hall says he hates Utah, I guess it actually means he thinks they are classy.

    We're so glad you are making things more clear so that the rational minded can understand the blue tinted goggle perspective.

    It is interesting.

    Scoreboard still reads...


    Just pumped that for the second time in five years Utah Fans know what "scoreboard" means...

    ... and Burton is still unblocked.

    ...And the #5 team in the nation's fans are still storming the field and staying out of the HC), after booing the injured QB...

    Ute fans are so knowledgable about college football.

    More education, and less hate, would go a long way to becoming... "classy".

  • SMS Salt Lake City, UT
    Dec. 5, 2010 12:14 p.m.

    Things are making more sense now. It was really strange to see the Utes put up 68 against Iowa St. then look anemic on offense the second half of the season.

    I still think though it would be a good idea to change the offense up in the future if the Utes stick with Wynn the next two years. The option handoff doesn't work with Wynn because he is not a mobile QB.

    The offense is more tailored to someone like Cain so I think he will do fine in the bowl game. I am also glad Cain gets a chance to redeem himself after a poor performance against BYU. Cain has been a humble hardworking player so hopefully he can go out with a win.

    GO UTES!

    No more "Scary" that the uncharted world of the non-AQ, mid major independent with no bowl tie in and nothing to play for after the first loss which for BYU should occur on or about September 3rd 2011.

    Dec. 5, 2010 10:14 a.m.

    Get better soon Wynn...the TDS comments just show how weak and insignifant they are... while the U keeps striving for excellence.

  • MichiganCoog Cottonwood Heights, UT
    Dec. 5, 2010 9:34 a.m.

    Perhaps a blessing in disguise for Mr. Wynn, because he'd be eaten for lunch by either BSU or Nevada. As for Mr. Cain, after watching his masterful performance against BYU last week, Utah no matter how you slice it, is going to be pummeled in this Bowl game against either WAC team that goes. Utah is by no means worthy of its' ranking. Yes, Utah won against BYU, and this BYU fan is not a "y-ner". Utah won by burton blocking that kick...but every thing prior to that play was BYU's own undoing, and ya'll know it. No matter, because after seeing a 6-5 rebuilding team dominated by freshman and sophomores, is going to be a great team for years to come.

    As for Utah's, I would be dang worried with the amount of skilled players graduating this year, which could have finished 7-5 instead of 10-2 very easily...Which is why if I were a Ute fan right now, I'd be investing in Roll-aids and TUMS for the coming year ahead...With a hobbled Mr. Wynn, and no returning RB's and lots of other holes...Scary!!!

  • Cougar Claws Lindon, UT

    Dec. 5, 2010 9:09 a.m.

    To the guy claiming BYU wants to schedule easy teams...

    Have you seen who they are lining up for future games?


    Say goodbye to the bowl win streak. Utah has to actually play a real team in a bowl game for a change. The only real team they have beat these last few years was Alabama (I give huge props on that one). I hope the ute fans have enjoyed the 2004 and 2008 years because it is welcome to mediocrity from here on out in both basketball and football. Hey at least the school will be getting more money.

  • sammyg Springville, UT
    Dec. 5, 2010 8:31 a.m.

    Hmmm, an injured Wynn but coaches still allowed him to play over Cain?

    Well, going forward this looks to spell more trouble for the Utes. Kiss that winning bowl record goodbye! It's only the LV Bowl anyway, right Ute fans?

    When you are only a mid-level team at best this season with goo-goo eyes going to the PAC-12 you seem to forget reality.

    Here's some reality for you...

    You lost to TCU 7-47 (Jumbo Jet, I'm still laughing!!)

    3-28, Notre Dame, with a true freshman QB

    Barely won the AFA game
    Barely won the SDSU game
    Only by a blocked FG in the last two seconds you win the BYU game.

    This kind of performance might bode well in the MWC but at the PAC-12 the Utes WILL be the cupcake.

    And now we hear your star QB had an ongoing injury and your coaching staff just used the guy all season to get what? The LV BOWL?????

    Wow! That's disturbing! Poor Cain, poor team, and now another humiliating loss guaranteed at Vegas against BSU?

    What say you Ute fans now?

  • flintrock Rigby, Id
    Dec. 5, 2010 6:27 a.m.

    Let's be honest. We have comments from both sides that are immature and petty. A lot pretend fake outrage at about anything said. Based on the last ten years the teams are even with Utah having a slight edge because of the BCS games they have played. That does not transfer into more wins against BYU. Its like two brothers competing for the same dessert at the table. 98% of the people are civil and you have the 2% who make jerks of themselves trying to say something smart and cutting to impress how brilliant they are. I think most of the dumb sayings and cuts against each team are funny. Lighten up genius people...in 2-3 days your words are deleted and we move onto another article.
    Sorry to see Wynn injured. That explains his poor play for the last few games. Yes I would trade for Heaps if that was possible. I would trade for Andy Dalton if that was possible also.

  • afro14 Sandy, UT

    @ Ted H.

    Scoreboard still reads...


    ... and Burton is still unblocked.

    Wynn was playing injured the last 7 games of the season, and despite that, he still put together some impressive performances and led his team to a 5-2 record in those 7 games.

    When September rolls around, and Wynn is healthy, then we'll be able to see who is the better QB between him and Heaps. I still think that Wynn is the better player and leader, but we'll see how Heaps does in his bowl game and sophomore year. Only time will tell!

  • afro14 Sandy, UT
    Dec. 5, 2010 2:04 a.m.

    Wow. It kind of helps us see just how good Wynn can potentially be. Apparently he sustained this injury in the Iowa State game and was still able to have some outstanding performances even with a hurt throwing shoulder. I like Wynn's toughness, and he's shown us that he is a talented QB.

    I remember that Brian Johnson looked lackluster at times in 2007 after separating his shoulder in the first game of the season, and then after having to sit out a few games, he came back and let the Utes to a 9-4 season, and of course, a 13-0 record the year after.

    It'll be fun to see what Wynn can do next year once he's healthy again. Until then, good luck to Terrance Cain, I'm really glad that he gets to finish out his career with the Utes as the starting QB, especially if he gets to play against an opponent like Boise State or Nevada.

    GO UTES!

  • Cougar Claws Lindon, UT

  • Riverton Cougar Riverton, Utah
    Dec. 4, 2010 11:43 p.m.

    I honestly don't know how Utah will do in the bowl game. On one hand, they do well in bowl games. On the other hand, if they go up against BSU or Nevada, they'd be lucky to win (although luck was on their side last week, no denying that). Utah just isn't at the same level as them.

    By the way, I give honest evaluations of the BYU and Utah teams and I am not a Utah hater. I respect the school. My dad and grandpa graduated from there, my grandpa taught physics there, and my dad is doing grad school there. However, BYU haters have gotten me close for wishing the Utes would lose.

    "Bring on BSu or UNR, would much rather play a higher ranked team and lose (isn't that what we are supposed to do) than some UTEP team in a bowl that no one cares about."

    Don't be surprised if the number of people who watch this "bowl that no one cares about" is about the same as those who watch the Las Vegas bowl. Judging by last week, I guess Ute fans would be happier beating a 6-6 team.

    Dec. 4, 2010 10:16 p.m.

    Other than 1 bowl in the past 10 years yew haven't had a tough opponent, if that carries true not having wYnn shouldn't be a problem. I want him healthy for next season so glad he's getting taken care of. boYlen should tend to his needs.

    Without Wynn, the Utes might actually have a chance to win their bowl, as long as they don't have to play Boise State or Nevada.

    Heaps suffered a dislocated rib in the first half against Utah, but, of course, BYU's true freshman QB still outplayed his experienced Top 25 team counterpart on his home field.

    It's interesting how our little brothers on the hill are so BYU obsessed that even a season ending injury to Utah's starting QB brings out the BYU hate.

    All these zoobs have a lot to say while they sit 6-6, say what you want about Jordan, but he played as well as your senior did last year (in your house) and got us the win this year with a bad shoulder.

    I remember zoobs talking about how fragile BJ was before he had the perfect season so say what you want about Jordan, he might just do the same, except now we play for a NC, have got to love the PAC!

    Go UTES!!

  • flintrock Rigby, Id
    Dec. 4, 2010 7:45 p.m.

    Wynn is not built to be a D-1 Quarterback. He was to small in the first place. 160 lbs with a gain up to 185 lbs. Doesn't have the frame or the mind-set to compete at this level. He runs for cover when a play breaks down and was an embarrassment when he slid to go down when he did run. I'm surprised Whit goes with such small QB's. Brian Johnson was injury prone. We need a QB like Brian Blechen who can take a hit and has some size 6'2" and 210 plus. If we play Nevada and Corbin Louks is playing safety for them and we lose. Pay Back big time for Louks. Only problem I see is that Whit is pretty stubborn and has a hard time admitting that the guy he chose might not be the man he thought he was.

No one gave the Utes a chance against Alabama so why wouldn't we want a shot at the formally best (according to BSU fans) team in the country. As Wiley Old School said, we have nothing to lose. We win, It's a huge upset according to all those who think it will be a blowout, and if we lose, well then, according to all you geniuses, that's what was supposed to happen right?

    Come in off the ledge buddy. I can think of another recent Ute QB who had to undergo surgery early in his career. That ultimately led to a fantastic 2008 season.

  • Wiley Old School RIC, VA
    Dec. 4, 2010 7:25 p.m.


    You deftly illustrate a key difference between Ute fans and zoobs. Ute fans say, "bring it on, let's be challenged by the best team we can line up." If we win, its a reason to celebrate. If we lose, then we grow from the experience and there's no shame as long as the effort was there. That's why we are excited about the challenge of the PAC-12. We know ten win seasons will be much harder to come by and we know that there will be some tough seasons. But each year we get to aim for the Rose Bowl and will grow from the increased competition.

    Zoobs would rather have a ten-win seasons padded with the games against lower half of the WAC than risk a 7-5 season against tough competition.

  • AllSeeingEye Salt Lake City, UT
    Dec. 4, 2010 6:36 p.m.

    Sad for Jordan, but at least this helps explain why the offense hasn't been the same the last several games as it was earlier in the season.

    Yes, of course, the level of competition changed. But, it wsa more than that as Wynn regularly over-threw and under-threw open receivers.

    I wish Jordan a speedy recovery and look forward to him being back to normal next fall.

    Wynn has looked great at times, and mediocre at others. Looks like Mike Sorensen - who wondered in his column a week ago whether Wynn was playing injured - had the correct diagnosis even before Whittingham and the doctors.

    Here's hoping the mediocre Wynn can be explained away by these shoulder problems, and the upcoming surgery and rehab will allow him to be playing at 100% by next fall. The Utes will need Wynn at his best when they start a PAC 12 schedule next season.

  • hedgehog Ann Arbor, MI
    Dec. 4, 2010 5:19 p.m.


    You will need a Juco (4 star) running back and now QB in this recruiting class. The offense is doomed next year unless strategic pick-ups are made.

    Wynn is proving to be injury prone...I don't see this changing. Griff is not the answer.

    Wishing Jordan a speedy recovery.

    Let it heal so that you don't jeopardize your future. We'll be looking for you next fall.

    I hope BYU shuts our team down like they did this year for years to come. Then we won't ever lose a game again!

    So a future Heisman trophy and National Championship winner was beat by a wounded qb? Hhmmmmmmm.

    Thanks Jordan for sending them home with a loss.

    Get better soon.

    OK...so that explains some things. Can't blame Wynn for wanting to play and even hurt he was able to lead the Utes to some great wins. I agree...let's get him healthy and ready for next year. With this much time to prepare a game plan, the Utes will be fine in Vegas (well, unless we get Boise, that could be a bit too much).

    Been a good season, lots of fun...Thanks Utes

    this explains his lackluster play this season! he's been underthrowing everything all year long. Now we know why! Glad he's getting it fixed so he'll be ready to roll for next season!!

    Gosh, Shawn M--I'm sure Jordan feels bad enough missing the bowl game. How cruel of you to add failing to impress shawnm from Lehi because you've had a few too many injuries.

    Cain will do fine, if you offensive coordinators at Utah will use your heads and understand you need Urban Meyer's zone read version of the spread, which allows a QB like Cain to put pressure on a defense by making plays with his feet. Your inability to use your personnel effectively is a major reason for the disappointing losses.

    Hopefully, you're not silly enough to think you have a shot at either Boise or Nevada running your power spread, which is both predictable and unproductive against the good teams...heck, I'll even include BYU's defense which pretty much shut you down.

    Explains why he's been doing poorly lately. Hopefully Cain will bring some magic, and Griff gets some time.

    So that means he was hurt preseason, at the beginning of the season, and then again mid-season but continued to play injured, and now has to have surgery. I'm getting less impressed with Wynn as time goes on. I'm hoping they've found some good recruits for next year because I have a feeling we'll be needing them.
