    Let's consider chances of going to a BCS bowl:

    1 loss already
    no conference wants you
    bcs bowls think you are a joke
    preseason national championship

    chances of BCS bowl: 0%, same as every year.

    Pac 12 tournament of champions
    Don't play Oregon
    Don't play Stanford
    USC can't go to Pac 12 championship game
    1 of 2 best teams in Division

    Chances of BCS Rose Bowl: 40%. Oregon 60%

    Oh it's good to be a ute.

    Good luck on your "quest" next season cougars

    We'll have already had THREE!

    Is correct he was better than last week...

    He went from abysmal to poor.

    His throwing mechanics were still horrible. I can't recall the last time I watched 4 balls batted down in a single game let alone by the same QB.

    The reason he improved is because we have some play making WRs. Christoper, Dres, and Dunn are play makers. Wynn is not. So many times he missed wide open receivers.

    I would like to see film of Wynn throwing before the injury because I sure don't remember him delivering the ball the way he is now. He is short-arming everything and throwing sidearm which makes him the equivalent of about a 5'-10" QB. With this abnormal release he has no zip on the ball and very little accuracy and balls are hanging in the air forever. Several of his passes were fluttering thru the air like dying quail. He is still not right, that is obvious, whether it is physical or mental he is still not right. I was bouncing back and forth between games on TV last night and the difference between his throws and other QB's was night and day. The last drive was a perfect illustration when he missed a couple of wide open receivers when he delivered the ball sidearm - he should have been rifling those balls in but wasn't able to. Pre-injury Wynn wins the game on that drive. He definitely played and threw the ball better than last week but nowhere near what he was doing pre-injury. Sure hope he gets it worked out soon.

    To Wilde and RBN .. Could not agree more. Wynn has no pocket presence, no composure and a dreadful throwing motion. All completions were the results of diving or leaping catches by his receiving corps. This doesn't bode well for a successful season.

    I would give Wynn a B-, playing against a defense as good as USC's without being able to run the ball isn't easy. Some people want to blame Wynn for the loss, but our passing game was far better than our running game last night and Wynn didn't have any turnovers. The bottom line is that Wynn made some big plays and he was able to set up Utah for a game tying FG.

    The difference of the game was Marc Tyler, he showed why he was the top RB recruit in the nation in high school.

    Oh please...Wynn was terrible. He completed some passes, sure, but he was floating wounded ducks out there.

    It's time for Utah fans to realize that our QB quite simply isn't going to live up to the hype. Our friends in Utah County should probably realize the same.

    If that was "cutting it loose", then Jordan is dillusional. His mechanics are still poor (throwing side arm, lazy footwork, etc) which resulted in numerous balls batted down at the line and off-target throws. He threw late quite often. He was better than last week, but still cost the Utes the game. Please hit Dres Anderson in stride just once.... please.

    I don't agree that Jordan Wynn played well. He kept bailing the pocket rather than steping up a making some throws. Ultimately he was sacked several times for big losses because he can't out run the USC linemen. He needs to toughen up and play some football, otherwise it will be a long season. The article should be about the Utah defense for playing outstanding football, otherwise this game would have been a blowout.
