    @ Moderate,

    I don't need to preach to the BYU team to not let anything go to their heads. Saturday's game took care of that.

    I hope you're correct in Kyle and the players not letting this easy win make them think they'll have an inside track to the South championship. Hate to see a good start go to waste.

    I always root for the Utes when they're not playing BYU.

    BYU's loss to the Utes had a LOT to do with their attitude that they were this and that after playing two BCS teams so closely.

    We'll see how Saturday's game wakes them up. UCF won't be a pushover.

    I have to hand it to 90% of BYU fans on the comment boards the past few days. I honestly thought there would be a lot more denial and 1984 and whatever else. But to almost all of your credit you've taken a terrible day of BYU football and handled it with class.
    Good luck with the rest of the season, you all deserve to see some touchdowns scored by that offense.

    I'm a BYU fan, but i have to say that we got whooped. Utah was the better team this year. Our offense lost the game for us because they couldn't keep the ball in their hands. Congratulations Utes, hope you have a great year in Pac 12.

    The Utes earned it and they deserved it. Let them gloat! Well done Utah. I'd say wait until next year but with Heaps returning, not sure it will be any different.

    "Don't let it go to your head."
    I am sure coach Whit will set the perspective for his players. It was a great win against an underprepared and overhyped opponent. All coach needs to add is "...now it is time to get back to Pac 12 play." He has an extra week to show them game film from USC as a reminder of what real football is about.

    The far tougher job is coach Roscoe's. He has a short week to get his team focused on UCF. Utah put the "let's quit" idea into Cougar heads. You should be preaching "Don't let it go to your heads" to those players down south.

    Re: what's in it for you?

    Typical that BYU fans are still living in the past. We are living in the present.

    Did BYU give the game away?

    I am certain that Coach Whit will have the troops ready.

    PAC to the future man!

    Don't let it go to your head. The Utes were on the receiving end of two of these embarrassing games the end of last year.

    BYU just wasn't ready to play this game, and Heaps didn't live up to it, but looked like a first-game rookie, instead.

    Be ready for some tough games ahead in the Pac-12. BYU's slip-up shouldn't give the Utes any false sense of where they're at.

    I thought Bronco's non-blitz night had a lot to do with Wynn's success. Not sure why Bronco basically left him off the hook.

    Do the state proud and keep yourselves grounded, Utes!
