    Ah Coach Boylen, the man that brought Utah the no-pass offense.

    Good luck coach, we hope someone comes calling so that they can pick up most of your buyout check.

    The Utes couldn't be hitting the PAC at a better time:

    - USC won't be "USC" for years with the sanctions. All the "we'll show them" motivation in the world won't make up for lack of bodies

    - Not playing the top two PAC teams unless and until they make it to the championship (and in one game, anything can happen -- the whole reason for the BcS cartel and the reason the Utes were matched with Pitt in 2004, rather than against Auburn. Turns out Auburn/Utah could have been for all the marbles if USC's title is vacated)

    - All their toughest rivals for the division championship at home (as in 2008 when the toughest opponents -TCU, BYU, Oregon State - were at home)

    If Wynn and the running backs perform, it could be a good year for the Utes.

    Hmmmmm..... BYU owns half the championships in MWC sports. Looks like good support to me.

    How did BYU enter into this topic?

    Going to the beach may have been to relieve stress and catch a breath. Many coaches do that. Sometimes you need to walk away to refocus.

    "Can't wait for the 9/10 game. Are you Utes ready for some real, big-boy football? We'll see....."

    Just like we saw the last time these two teams met? Pete Carrol, Carson Palmer, USC cheerleaders, 5 game win streak, blah blah....Utah won.

    As a Penn State undergrad now Ute graduate student... I just have to ask... really? Must he destroy both my school's basketball teams?

    About Boylen and PSU, Pah-lease! Boylen will be nothing more than an assistant coach, and a good one at that. He simply isn't head-coaching material, as his time at the U clearly demonstrated. Also, about USC and the Pac 12 South, yep, they won't be eligible to play in the conf. championship, but they WILL be in first plast at the end of the season. They have so much they will show the rest of the conf and the nation. Can't wait for the 9/10 game. Are you Utes ready for some real, big-boy football? We'll see.......

    Respectfully, what does any of the people you named have to do with the way Boylen's teams performed, and Dr. Hill's decision.

    Worf, how do you "support" what Boylen was doing at the U? The program was spinning out of control. They were taking time off at the beach while losing to teams they had no business losing to.

    Mormon Ute was right.

    Utah is finally headed in the right direction.

    I too hope Jim Boylen learned his lessons...

    Hmmmmm......Just like BYU supported Glenn Potter, Frank Arnold, Roger Reid, Gary Crowton and all the athletic directors (too many to remember) that they have fired over the years, Right? lol

    Mormon ute "he has learned from his mistakes at Utah".

    The mistakes were with Utah. You don't build programs by firing coaches every few years. You support them. Even when things are going bad, it'll work out.

    What goes around comes around.

    Boylen should expect and willing receive the same treatment he gave to Kryskowiac.

    I hope Boylen gets the job. I think he is a good guy and hope he has learned from his mistakes at Utah. It would also relieve the Utah basketball program of at least a portion of that golden parachute.

    Look at the picture of Boylen, it looks like he is saying, "Look, there goes another one running away from my program".
