sounds like a kewg complaining about pac-10 refs.
Utes - 42Rebels - 21Nice job, Utes! Congrats on your win!What's good for any team in Utah is good for the whole state.
Lol, I took the 22 points buddy.Still won my bet, sorry.Was glad the Refs took it in themselves to put the fumble in review.Glad your refs are in Utah's back pocket.
If Utah could actually play TWO good halves it sure would be nice. Way to take
it to 'em Utes in the second half.
I'm sure glad you're not my financial advisior. Hope the kids at home are not
going to go hungry, but you sure were excited for a half.
Looks like UNLV seems to have Utahs number. Go rebels! Rise & Shout Utah!! LOL!
You're about to watch another upset folks.It's 2 minutes till 6,
mountain time.I was sworn to secrecy till the start the of the game.
But i'll let you guys now right now, UNLV will be going with a 2 quarterback set
in the backfield. The Utes will be bewildered and not know what to do. I'm glad
I put my money where my mouth was.I'm getting 22 points from the
Sports book here in Vegas, and I also bet UNLV straight up where I'll be getting
12-1 on my money. Oh I forgot, you are in Utah straight up means no points.Prepare to lose Utes.
nobody said BYU wasn't a good team...its the fans that ruin it for them...
Those who live in a glass house should not throw stones... Which
team/fans/coaches are claiming perfection... which team breaks their practices
by saying bcs, etc... sure they have been undefeated in the conference the past
two seasons (which really isn't that rare of an accomplishment considering Utah
and TCU have both accomplished it)... but they have not been perfect. And when
byu loses two or three games this year, with great humility the players, coaches
and fans of byu will say how they beat themselves... no credit is ever given to
the other team... based on that logic, since byu only beats themselves, then
actually every year they are undefeated and therefore perfect... well at least
in their own minds.
Utah vs UNLV...ah-la Wyoming game last year...a smear...UTAH 38UNLV 06
When the Utes hammer UNLV by 30 tonight I hope it will shut up all the critics
that have not missed an opportunity to rubb 27-0 in our face. Like the Y does
not have an extremely embarasing loss or two on their resume. I am very exited
that we open at home with UNLV.
"'We're not perfect. Never professed to be,' Whittingham said."No,
he leaves that to Ute fans who profess their team (not to mention themselves) to
be perfect year in and year out, stats and records not withstanding.Utah will drop several games this year. That won't stop fan professions of
So we've won 9 of our last 10? Who'd we lose to? Geez, must have been a pretty
good team because we beat UCLA, Louisville, and a very good Navy team last
season and Michigan to start this season.
you go team
There's only room for one perfect coach in Utah, I guess. I like what we've got.
Byt the way, Joe, for all Michigan's offensive flaws, the strength of the team
is their defense. If we can put up 300 years in a half against Michigan, TDS
will be a piece of cake. I can't wait!
I thought I'd give Job ( Joe B )some national press impressions of Utah
Footbal It may even calm down some of the ego's of the blue bloods.
Here's some observations from national press; "The biggest thing
I'm looking forward to, as a team, is we have an opportunity to play against a
team that's ranked high nationally," Clayton said of the No. 22 Utes. "So this
is an opportunity to test our will against what's seen as some of the country's
elite. Utah, in its headline-making 25-23 win last week in Ann
Arbor, Mich., held mighty Michigan to 36 rushing yards on 25 carries, plus
forced coach Rich Rodriguez to play musical quarterbacks to try and generate
some offense. Good luck to both MWC teams today they both help the public
opinions and impressions nationally. For a state that has a tiny
population having 2 schools in the top 25 plays to our advantage in the
I agree that Michingan won't be a top team in the Big 10 this year, but they
won't be in the bottom either, and either way it won't be from a lack of defense
which returned the majority of its starters from last years team that ranked as
one of the best in the nation, number 2 in pass defense in the Big 10, and
didn't have the major overhaul in scheme like the offense did, yes they did
change a bit but not to the extent of the offensive changes. I bet Michigan
goes 6-6 and goes to a bowl game simmilar to 84 when BYU beat them in the
Holiday Bowl for their share of the national championship, and that by no means
was a blowout for BYU, so I'd be careful knocking below average Michigan teams
if I was BYU, just admit that Utah is a good team as I'm willing to admit that
BYU is a good team despite my utter disdain for them. If you're gonna talk
smack, just back it up with some proof and not irration banter
Don't get me wrong, I like Johnson, but I still believe the worst coaching
decision of all last year was taking out Grady and putting in a gimpy Johnson in
the 2nd half.Grady never had a chance to get the offense rolling, I
may not be remembering 100% correctly, but it seemed like fumbles cost us our
offensive possesions and penalties made it difficult to convert. I don't really
get why no one had confidence in Grady, he wasn't a great scrambler but he had
an amazing arm. Putting Johnson in, who couldn't scramble (risk of
injury), and could only throw for about 8 yards sealed the Utes loss. Let's
hope we don't have similar coaching decisions today. I think this season the
Utes are ready (and healthy), I pick them by 4 TDs
Living with that pain is tough, huh? Somehow, I feel 0 sympathy. More pain may happen today. The team is famous for flopping after big wins.
UNLV will play tough. They know they can play and defeat this team. Be
prepared for a close one.
The Utes have to prove that they can consistently beat MWC teams. UNLV should be
a good warm up game. Air Force, Wyoming and New Mexico will be the true
tests.Utah by 44-10.More, if Kyle doesn't let off the
Best of luck Utes! Here's hoping that we both get to the big rivalry game this
season undefeated and both in the top 10!
Can't wait for the game to start. UNLV is going to try too hard and make some
foolish mistakes that lead to turnovers. The UNLV D is not enought to hold back
the overpowering Utah offense that puts on a show and makes the rest of the
Mountain West in awe. All the preseason votes that said the school in the south
would be the league champion begin admitting they were wrong and the fear of the
mighty utes starts affecting every MWC coach.This is the game the Utes
PROOVE what those who have followed them already knew, they are the team to beat
in the MWC. The Defense is solid, especially with Krueger and Misi on the ends
and will shot down the highly touted UNLV running game. Asiata on offense will
show that his performance last week wasn't just a fluke, and Mack will break out
this game. Johnson, who played so well in the first half last week but couldn't
adapt to Michigan's adjustments in the second half will show he learned from
last week and play solid the whole game. Goal for the utes should be a 50-0 win
allowing less than 150 rebel yds
What a great coach - "We're not perfect. Never professed to be." Its great to
hear a coach with a little humility . . . . GO Utes!!
C'mon Whitt...you guys put up over 300 yards of offense against a very good
defensive team last week? yea right, Michigan is NOT good and will be at the
bottom of the Big 10 this year. If you don't get any better, I give you third
(again) behind BYU and TCU.
