Did anyone see the LSU - Auburn game last night?? Now THAT is football boys and
girls. Good luck to both the U and the Why.
and he admitted it.The outpouring of sarcasm & condescension from
most Y fans here is because they were all AFA fans yesterday, frustrated when
the Utes pulled out the W.Got the gut-check W on the road against
another 3-0 team, 2-0 in MWC, no injuries, still room for improvement, a couple
of weeks off from conference play.BJ's best football this season is
ahead of him. He'll get better, guaranteed. Not perfect, but better.
make anyone nervous? He looks unsure of himself.MWC goes 3-1 this
week vs non conference foes.
Big Daddy can pick em!!!Another UTAH VICTORY...See you soon
BYU fans, please quit with the Utah schedule bashing.Utes:Michigan 1-2UNLV 3-1Utah State 1-3AFA 3-1Total: 8-7BYU:N. Iowa (FCS) 2-1 (both wins vs FCS teams)Washington
0-3UCLA 1-2Wyoming 2-2 (with 1 win vs FCS team)Total 5-8 (with
3 wins vs FCS teams)Neither team has a great schedule resume. But
win out and you're likely a BCS buster...
...just cancel the rest of the college football season and hand BYU a BCS bowl
bid and a national title too... I don't mind most BYU fans, just the ones that
think their in contention for a national championship every year... come back to
earthStrangely enough the UNLV win gets better every week. Go Utes
Thought I needed to weigh in on the Pittsburg Ute - just to post some comments
on the Ute side of sports since so many Yewts feel the need to weigh in on the
news coverage of the Cougars and constantly make negative comments.Go Cougars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am getting so sick of all the Kewgars talking down the Utes strength of
schedule week in and week out. Can anyone compare the combined records of the
Utes opponents vs. the Kewgars??? The Utes strength of schedule is much better
than our little brothers down south. Even lowly Arizona who lost to
New Mexico last week crushed UCLA today so what does that really say about your
weak win last week???
I love how every team Utah plays somehow turns into a horrible team. One past
said that this is Air Force's worst team in years, ha. That being said, the
Utes are atop the MWC and they'll be there till January baby. Go Utes!!
When we play Air Force we'll show you how to shut them out. Same for USU.Love,Your Big Brothers from Provo
I am surprised no one is talking a bout Utah holding AF to 53 yards rushing.
That is the stat of the day!!!!!!!!!!
Way to go Utes. The entire Mt West wins with more ranked teams. I would love
to see just one Utah loss in November, other than that, keep rolling on. A win
is a win. I love rivalries, but all BYU fans should stop and realize how great
it is to have the country looking at both the U and the Y. Cougars
and Utes should be pulling for each other all year. Save the rivalry until the
actual game. A loss by either team before then doesn't do either school any
favors. Here's hoping for two legitimate BCS favorites, not just BCS busters,
in late November!
This win over Air Force proves that Utah is better than USC. We should be ranked
Re: out of state Ute: didn't the utes blow out a UNLV team that beat then #15
ASU? Very few teams in the league get to play the top 5 during the regular
season, especially when out of conference. There's also no motivation for those
perennially ranked teams to play teams like Utah and BYU as it looks really bad
to lose to us ( which is always possible) and doesn't help to win. Somehow
beating an ASU will alwys be a good OOC game for those teams b/c people have in
their mind that ASU is alwys good.Props to the U for winning a game
that's always a dogfight for them and for stopping one of the very best run
offenses in the nation. That sounds like being proven to me.
The win over Air Force by Utah is more impressive than the win by BYU over
Washington. In 10 games, Air Force would beat Washington 6-8 times. Air Force
plays Utah tough... they are like "utah" is to BYU, doesn't matter the year the
game will be tough. Good win by the Utes, I'm not sure that BYU will have a
test until TCU so who knows what team BYU really has. If I was Bronco, I'd just
send up Anae and the third stringers to wipe up Utah State and give the rest of
the team the weekend off to get good seats at conference :) GOBYUBABY!!!
Lets see 50 point home victories over Wyoming and UCLA, that sounds kind of
familiar. That is exactly what Utah did last year. That may comfort you, but it
did not make the Utes world beaters last year. You have not played anybody yet.
You have pulled out one road win against Washington which is in the bottom 10
according to ESPN. All of Utahs road wins are better. Wait for the TCU game,then
come talk to us. All you have to now is lose to UNLV and you can duplicate what
Utah did last year.
Keep up the arrogance. You'll get your comeuppance. Ever heard of the pride
cycle?Nice work today, Utes. I can forget about shaky play as long
as the team pulls out a win. I was wondering when they'd start pounding the
football with Mack and Asiata. I'd like to see much, much more of that in the
Great job Utes, a win at Air Force is tough. Strong defense against their rush.
Great to see the MWC playing strong this yr.
Another notch in the belt for the Utes. Great game! I cheer for
Utah every time they play a non-MWC team. The tension is rising for
I see some of you are complaining there aren't any BYU fans posting
congratulatory comments on your artcle so here I am, the answer to your prayers.
Way to hang in there and squeak past a weak Air Force team, one of
their worst in years.So Brian Johnson threw 1 TD, fumbled twice, got
sacked 5 times, the AFA defense scored on your offense, and Sakoda missed both
of his field goal attempts. And then you stopped Air Force's powerful ground
game so they started burning you with their awesome passing game.Sounds like it's all coming together for U. Great job.
I agree with out of state Ute, both teams are unproven. But Utah with 3 road
wins and only one home game so far is much more impressive than 3 home wins
against really bad teams and a close as you can get victory over a winless
Washington Team. Come talk to us after the TCU game, that will be a choking loss
like you have on the road every year. You have not seen a defense like TCUs or
Utahs yet, when it doesnt come easy, we will see how you do.
This is encouraging to me, despite the breakdowns. We're winning, which
contrasts our usual slow-starts under Coach K. Go Utes!!!!!!!!
"8 consecutive quarters of no scoring from the opposing team! I don't care who
you're facing, that's impressive."The fact you even had to include
the second sentence makes the achievement less impressive.
Considering that Northern Iowas is Div. IAA, Washington has yet to win a game,
UCLA is just aweful and Wyoming is bottom tier in the MWC, I find it interesting
Cougar fans believe their team belongs with the cream of college football.
Bottom line: They haven't played anyone good - at all. Frankly, neither has
Utah. BYU or Utah, if they played Missouri, Florida or USC, would get killed.
Hey BYU fans. Remember just two weeks ago when you beat a terrible Washington
team on the road, by one point, on a blocked kick? Remember how virtually the
entire college football world said that BYU wasn't that good, and that you would
likely lose two or three games? Do you remember how unfair you
thought that was?Then why are you hear, saying the exact same things
after Utah wins a close game against a good team on the road?
A win is a win and a road game even better. Predictions aside I am just happy
that the UTES are 4-0. That said , with th press and notoriety getting more
attention that BYU and Utah is getting national exposure and that this media
attemtion could go a long way in recruiting better blue chip players. Good
for both schools . It wouldn't hurt the Blue Bloods down in Utah
County to congratulate the Utes for a win, but I think I know why. Has anyone
noticed that the comment section on a University of Utah articles get blasted
and smacked right after the Junior High school bell rings down there ?
Not Surprising, I am a big BYU fan and I congratulated the Utes on their win
before you posted
With East Carolina losing today, if BYU and Utah can stay unbeaten until
Nov 22 game, then after the game Utah can be BCS bound. Go Utes!!!
How can you barely win a game when you nearly double the opponents time of
possession, more than double offensive yards, triple opponents first downs, have
twice as many penalties, play on the road, hold a rushing power to just a few
yards, and have to win it at the last second? Good thing Weber is next. They
won again today and have blown out 2 of their opponents.
Congrats on the tough win Utes. Here's to keeping you and us in the top twenty
'til Nov. I'm pulling for you!! Coug fans, stay sharp and don't sound like a
bunch of scared Jr High kids
BYU busts up Wyoming, the same Wyoming team that the utes will lose to later
Good win on the road. Always have to feel good about winning on the road when
you lose the turnover battle. Like to see those issues get corrected, but here
is to 4-0 and 2-0 in MWC. To Casey: How many turnovers did BYU have against
Hey its not our fault nobody can play to the level that BYU is on. I guess we
can give the other teams handicaps. But you mentioned we have no dignity by
blowing teams out, need I remind you of your 2004 team that did the same exact
thing the Cougs are doing now, blowing everybody out the water. And speaking of
dignity the utes sure have a lot of it, honestly how many teams will kick an
onside kick when they are up by 50. Definition of Dignity: Bronco taking all the
starters out in the third quarter of both games.
The rear view mirror is the best place to have Air Force. That was a good win.
Utah dominated the running game holding Air Force to less than 100 yards rushing
while having two running backs go over 100 yards. Turnovers continue to be a
problem. Those need to be cleaned up immediately.Having 3+ turnovers will
not cut it.
I'll take the win.
The great part was seeing AFA competitive. Utah certainly had the miscues but
don't get carried away with discounting what was a balanced offense and defense.
The team got the job done. Strong win.
Actually, I think it was something like 5 turnovers, not 3 (and didn't most of
those come in the first half?). If Mr. Johnson thinks that his performance is
good enough to get past the Cougars, he needs to think again. Our defense has
played very well the last two games...8 consecutive quarters of no scoring from
the opposing team! I don't care who you're facing, that's impressive. And 10
forced turnovers in the last 2 games?! BYU's defense sure is looking strong. I
can't wait for November...GO COUGARS!!!!!
who cares if it was convicingly or not. It doesn't matter if it was won with
touchdowns or field goals. I think the zoobies need to study a rulebook and they
will fing that field goals are totally legal. Bu seeing as how your totally
unobjective i'll just say this. If sakoda was playing for BYU you guys would say
a darn word about his offense at all. Live with the fact that there is a much
bigger world than provo and you may get some credibility back.
I feel sorry for BYU fans who must get bored with all of these blowouts. I would
rather be a fan of a 2-10 ute team than a 12 time BCS BYU team. I have my
A win is a win. Lets clean up some mistakes and we will be in good shape. The
defense showed up big holding the Air Force ground game to 50 something yards.
They were averaging 350
Just got back from the game. Utah and Air Force both played poorly. If they
don't both pick it up the rest of the season, there is no way either of them
will beat BYU... or TCU. Looking forward to seeing the Utes play in Laramie.
That one will be fun, too.
I assume you are referring to the Utes loss against AF last year? Pretend byu
loses Hall, Collie, and Unga against UNI, not the same team against that
Washington team is it?
Good to see the byu trolls out blasting the Utes for wining what is usually a
tough game for them. But guess what, Utah is atop the MWC conference, and like
byu has a 0 next to the four wins. Pretty, no, but a win nonetheless. Figure
out a way to rid the team of the turnovers, and its much much prettier. Holding
AF to 52 rushing yards is impressive, luckily the 75 yd fumble return doesn't
count. And why on earth is there an idiot still harping on running up the
score? Oh, a BYU fan, right. Go Utes!
So I was just on the Cougar board. A lot of Ute fans congratulating the Cougs
on a good win and saying they're impressive. Here, not even one BYU fan
congratulating the U on a 4-0 record. Granted they didn't blow out their
opponent or look as impressive at times. That goes without saying. Cougar fans
can't even grow up and say congrats. instead they have to come on here and say
things like "The Utes clearly aren't as good as everyone says they are..." and
"don't be surprised when BYU holds Utah scoreless too". Get some class Cougar
fans. Tell a team good job on a win!!! No wonder nobody in the college sport
world likes you.
Exactly, BYU will be there, and the Utes will be bustin through somewhere
else.......catch my drift?
It was difficult to watch the turnovers keep AF in the game. 445 yards compared
to 195 yards in total offense. The defense looked good. Brian looked scared half
the time even though he through for nearly 300 yards. Correct the
issues and we'll be fine.
Hum. What I dont understand is why any one thought this game was going to be
diffrent. The experts said utah would win by 7 (and they did) and the last 10
years vs AF the game has been desided by 10 points or less. for what ever reason
these teams play each other very tuff. It was a good win, no matter what better
be 4-0 then 3-1 ?
Wow why is everybody dissing the utes for a win over a 3-0 Air Force.?? I admit
it wasn't the prettiest win ever, but people... It's called improvement! We have
it in us to win out the season and go to a BCS game. I promise you that. we will
need to work on it, but we can do it. So everyone just lay off their back and
have some confidence. Just look at the stats, we are better in every game, it's
just dumb mistakes. That can be FIXED! GO UTES!!!
Congrats Utes on the win. I hope that your team is undeated when they meet the
Y on Nov. 22.PS, don't listen to the prophets of doom until Nov. 22.
i am wondering how utah can feel good about their team this year, they have
played so horrible at times that even UNLV was tied with them, but then a
different team comes out and wins the game. it will take a lot more than that to
beat the cougars, if they can get past TCU. don't be surprised when byu holds
utah scoreless too... with their bench players on the field for half the game
just like UCLA and Wyoming.
Congrats, Utes1 Harder than it should have been, but great to get a win on the
road against an undefeated team!
Good job Utes. If it weren't for a few turnovers, the game would not have been
Utes are 4-0 ...but fail to win convincingly! No Vegas Bowl this year, Utes!
This season is starting to show just how bad Utah really is. They beat a
horrible Michigan team and squeak by Air Force? Give me a break, Utah will have
two losses by the BYU game. Fire Ludwig!
I'm sorry the Utes didn't toast the Academy 30-0, which was certainly possible.
And you don't have to parse the stats a lot to know why they didn't; it was
penalties, turnovers, and maybe 3-4 miscues.But, hey, the AFA has
had Utah snakebit for years. So a 30-23 victory that brings us to 4-0 is
I'm not happy about the turnovers. The game was much closer than it should have
been. A win is a win, but the Utes had better get their stuff together if they
want to keep winning.
Way to go!!!Nov 22 game is looking better and better...
The Utes looked great on both lines. The running game was smash mouth and
impressive. Air Force could not run at all. But Brian Johnson made me nervous
all game, I think he had 3 turn overs (1 was a crazy lucky pick). We are 4-0 but
we didnt look as strong as our record shows. We are the MOST penalized team in
the NCAA! The lack of discipline and the turn overs are going to catch up to us
if they arent corrected soon. Still, we are 4-0 and in first place in the MWC,
so we'll take it. Here's hoping we get better every week. Go Utes!!!
Its clear Utah is not as good as everyone is saying they are. It doesn't matter
how good your offense is if you give the ball up via turnovers. Go BYU.
See there Utes, it's so much easier when you do not need to make excuse for
stupid losses.Congrats on the win.(Kyle, please notice
how Bronco knows how to Win without running up the score.)Enter comment
