Reality has set in early. No National Championship. No win in Texas. But when
we beat the Utes in Provo = successful season!

prevent defense does is prevent you from winning.Anderson should
have learned that lesson in the 2006 BYU game.-----------Wasn't he
the defensive coach for both 4th and 18 to Collie and Beck to Harline?
I know this: our society values these 'athletics' far more than the academic
role a so called school plays within it. Yeah, they study this and that at BYU
or USU, but they play football and basketball. That's where the money is. That's
where the prestige is. That's what still matters to us.
Chris B:So, the utes want a championship without earning it, or
playing the top teams? Something for nothing? No wonder you don't like the
Utah will get worked by USC and BYU will not win at Texas. Kind of leaves a
bitter taste in your mouth when they meet up the following week.
Chris B: Your reasoning is sound. However, can Utah compete with Wynn as their
QB? I didn't watch Utah's game against Montana State, but from all of the
articles I have read, perhaps Wynn hasn't yet fully recovered from his ofseason
surgery. I guess we'll see. Good luck, Utah. Hope you can do some
"damage" in the Pac 12 this year. Good luck also to BYU. They will
need it against Texas. Hopefully, BYU and Utah will both be 2-0 when they meet
on Sept 17. No matter, it should be a great game, as usual. I just hope and
pray that the fans on both sides can be civil to one another. BYU, let's learn
from Mississippi fans & their coach how to be more gracious. Utah fans, I
would love it if we were gracious to you & if you would recriprocate. Come
on, let's all of us DO IT! Let's all have a great experience on Sep 17!
Only thing the prevent defense does is prevent you from winning.Anderson should have learned that lesson in the 2006 BYU game.@ChrisUtah still needs to see if we have a Division 1 QB after that
abysmal performance last Thursday. So the probability of Utah winning the
PAC-12 is slightly greater than BYU winning a NC.
I disagree that Utah can't win the Pac 12 championship.We dont play
Oregon.We don't play Stanford.USC can't play in the Pac 12
championship game.I'm not convinced Arizona State will be anything
special.Oregon didn't look amazing against LSU.This team will be as
good as any in the division. Utah has as good of a chance as anyone in
the Pac 12 of playing in the Pac 12 championship game for these reasons.
Great article until the last sentence that has Boise in the natioanl
championship game. They've already played their toughest game of the season. TCU
the other team team Boise plays that is supposed to be tough... well if they
can't stop Baylor how are they going to stop Kellen Moore. Boise has the
ultimate cupcake schedule... again. No National Championship this year... they
will have done nothing to prove their strength and no one will see them this
year either on the Mtn.
You're wrong about Boise State ever making the college NC game, even if
undefeated, and even after that good showing against Georgia. Their powder-puff
schedule's SOS will keep them ranked below other BCS schools that could even
have one loss.Remember, it's now how high they're ranked in the
polls, but the total BCS ranking that includes rigged computer rankings, which
are rigged by way of how they compute SOS. I doubt it's rigged on purpose. It's
just a fault of logic that benefits schools that are members of BCS
conferences.However, some of the computer rankings could be getting
the SOS right, but there are so many that don't, the averaging minimizes it.This is why, if BYU can get enough BCS schools on its schedule each
year, that BYU is better off independent than in a mid-major conference.
Amen Mr. J, as soon as I saw that my thought was it would be better to let them
score and put it back in the hands of a seemingly able Chuckie. I would have
expected a different look from Gary, the Prevent defense is not what you use
with the amount of time they had left and the distance they had to go, so
prevent defense...when will they ever learn.
