    BleedRed is right.

    You know Bronco hates the situation he is in, and Ill bet was very much against the Independence move. That is why Holmoe threw out an extension on his contract, Im sure with a little salary bump.

    Bronco would do great at his alma mater, check it out Bronco, PAC 12 pays very well!

    Seriously, prepare a resume, 86 the grey T shirt and dress for success! you could get that job.

    Utah should win at least two more games but then again I thought they'd beat Washington and Cal. Utah fans should be very thankful that the scheduling gods were so kind to you your first year in the Pac-12. You don't have to play the top two teams in the conference and you play all the worst teams. This is a down year for the conference and Utah will be lucky to be bowl eligible. If no Championship Game/Rose Bowl this year then when? You've got a USC not on probation to worry about in the future, in your own division. The stars were aligned this year. I don't see Utah battling for the Rose Bowl anytime soon.

    As a BYU fan through and through who is currently attending grad school at the U because I didn't get in to BYU's program, I would be very surprised if Utah does't win at least 2 of their remaining games. Every game is very winnable, and SHOULD be won. I predict they win 3 of the 4 and go to Vegas, where TCU will beat them soundly.

    Chris B: Next year" Really? I don't think we can mark your prediction down, as you so often punctuate your posts.

    Who is going to be our quarterback next year? I've watched Travis Wilson, and as a freshman next year he won't be leading us to the Promised Land. We don't know if Wynn will be able to play next year. Hays? Shreve? Chow & Co. better be scouting the JC ranks.

    And who will protect next year's QB? Although we have a lot of underclassmen on OL, that's been a weakness this year and we lose two of the anchors.

    I'd love to book the short drive to Pasadena, but I don't think it's realistic yet. We're going to need a couple of more years.

    @ Portland Trail Blazers: Bronco will be gone long before Whittingham.

    @ Nunya: Most people including the BYU fans that I know consider Chow to be one of the best offensive coordinators in the nation. Either you are ignorant, or you are jelous and wish he was still at BYU. Either way, he sure out coached Brandon Doorman (by 44 points).

    I'm sorry Mike I have to disagree with you. You honestly believe Utah isn't going to win at least two of their next four games to make it to 6-6 and go to a bowl game? All four games are very winnable and two of them are at home against terrible teams.

    Ute alumni, next year we will be. And you? Can't even beat a team with winning record.

    Did I miss something? I was under the impression that the utes were playing in the rose bowl.

    You give credence to a stupid blog that someone throws together?

    "[I]t's hard to take a website that still lists Utah as playing in the Mountain West Conference, seriously."

    What's really hard is to understand why anyone need read this ridiculous article.

    I've been around long enough to see a definite, discernible, and undeniable bad trend in "news reporting."

    Nowadays there's a smidgen of news and a whole lot of fantasy.
