    Agree with Larry Curtis.

    The links are intended for Utes fans to view other newspaper articles regarding Utah teams/players. Deseret News does not need to agree with these articles.

    People, grow up!!!
    You're acting even worse than my 10-years-old son.

    Ted Miller is most certainly credible. He's referring to the fact that Utah went from being in the WAC years ago and have made it all the way to the Pac-12. Not that they're jumping directly from the WAC.

    Those who are getting on Dirk for writing Red roundups are probably aware that this is something of a regular feature to help readers know what the sports media, even those as far away as Florida, are printing about the Utah Utes.

    I suspect most of you know this and are either being intellectually dishonest with your criticism or you are unaware of this well received offering from

    Dirk does this as requested by the web team and he does a good job of it for us without sacrificing his coverage of Utah sports. Those implying that Dirk has a rooting interest in the outcomes of games don't understand his role for our paper. His primary concern is with his coverage and reporting the score and events, not who won or lost.

    Jeff Call writes Blue roundups for BYU but he is on vacation.

    Thanks as always for participating in our comments section.

    Usc, Utah and ASU are the top three teams in the south division and with usc on probation that leaves it a two horse race. Utah plays ASU at home and is "even money" to play in the Pac 12 title game. BYU on the other hand has about a 99% chance of playing in the Hunger / Hellicopter bowl for the forseable future and that drives y fans nuts.

    Wow, the first comments on this story are once again from fans of the mid major team in Provo, they can't wait to pounce, good thing theyre just kittens. Why do you kittens obsess so much about your big brother in SLC? Go focus on that killer home schedule you are going to have this upcoming season; if it wasn't for Utah throwing your team a bone it would have to be about the worst Div1 schedule in the country. Way to use your mythical cache to bring in the big boys. Too funny.

    Hey dirk,

    How's about you pick up the phone and maybe do an interview with someone (anyone) connected to the Utes. What does the dnews pay you to connect links to the paper?

    Too funny!! Red Roundup may as well be served with a saucer of milk! Here kitty kitty kitties!! Every hungry kitten is attracted!!

    Go Utes! The future is bright, the future is Crimson! Get Used to it!
    (this is proven by the fact that all the kitties hang out on Utah sites)

    For those left behind by progress - have fun with the Gaels, the Toreros and the Dons!!

    """Gainesville Sun reports"""

    How desperate is this guy? He has to go all the way to a Florida news paper to find someone predicting the utes win their division. Really? a Florida news paper Dirk? how sad and deperate are you getting to come up with this bs?

    That is much worse than BYU finishing 1st in the Independant conference.

    So Athlon coverboy, Wynn, is expected to lead the Utes to a 3rd place finish in the PAC 12 South

    3. Utah 6-3, 7-5

    That may be a little high, but it sounds about right.

    To show how competent the writer of the first article is...

    "The Utes, who barged their way onto the national scene under Urban Meyer back in 2004, upgraded big time by moving from the WAC to the Pac-10"

    WAC, eh?

    Don't put too much stock into what that guy says...
