    Vince, on this comment board there are 14 categories but only one for sports. How did you manage to poke the sports category instead of something of interest to you?

    Football, football, football, college, high school ect. Thats 60% of the newspapers around this nations main interest! When is enough, enough? Has anyone ever heard of the word saturated? Wanna bee's and their priorities wow!

    BYU should score more than 27 this week.

    Florida will not score 27 vs. LSU. That would be a shocker.

    Dick, I think fans of all Utah schools would like to see your game predictions for their school. You may want to think about doing that.

    I don't know what happened against Washington, but the run game was working quite well before that. It is even more critical today.

    I disagree with two of Dick's picks. I will take UCLA over Washington State and Utah over ASU. Go Utes!!

    Any college team that wants to win consistently needs a good running attack. That's a DUH.

    Unfortunately, neither BYU nor Utah has the necessary talent to provide a good running attack.

    These teams might be able to manufacture such for a game here and there via good game planning or weak opponents, but don't expect much running consistency from either team this year.

    That definitely hurts the QB situations for both Utah and BYU, EXCEPT that BYU will start Nelson this Saturday, who can run, which might help BYU's overall run game.

    So, I give the nod this Saturday to BYU to beat SJSU and ASU to beat Utah.

    But, I think the Utah score will be worse than what Harmon predicts, unless Utah's backup QB plays out of his gourd.

    Just Jealous...

    Shouldn't you be Just Wondering about if your school will ever be invited to a real conference? Enjoy your WAC schedule and keep telling us how awesome independence is.

    Utah running game will be fine with White and Langi.

    Go Utes!

    Shouldn't the PAC 12 be prohibited from changing the name of the conference until UT or CU can win a conference game? ( and beating each other doesn't really count does it?)
