These negative go-back-and-forth comments (between BYU & Utah fans) are par
for the course. It is one thing to have a rivalry, but certainly another to
completely lose sight and perspective. I must say, that I too have
been caught up in the conversation. Before last week's game I made bold
predictions (based upon my own biased opinion). Then, Utah comes to Provo and
kicks our butt!! No matter how you cut it, Utah was the superior team that
night. Be it turnovers (forced or unforced), blocking, tackling, coaching,
EXECUTION, etc. - Utah was the superior team.Next year "it will
probably" be different. But whether it is or isn't we need to remember to
respect each other (teams and fans alike), and give proper credit where credit
is due. Not purposely discredit, just to discredit the other team or its fans
based upon your bias. That's garbage!This (and similar) board(s)
seem to be a "breeding place" for infected mosquitos that are posing
to be fans, but are really just nuisance insects. They get the "real
fans" juked-up causing them to become disenfranchised - blaming it on the
USC, what a powerhouse..........who did they play this week???
After watching ASU destroy USC last night, I would think that optimism might be
better replaced with concern. U are not in the MWC any more Dorthy.
Utah played its bowl game last week, now it gets to play a re-surging
Washington, look for a letdown loss to the Huskies and Ute fans to start looking
around asking why are we 0-2 in the PAC 10.2
sammyg, the Utes are ranked #4 in the PAC-12, not their division. They are in
second place in their division trailing only USC, who is ineligible for
postseason play.But you are right about one thing: our season is
only beginning, we need to take these next 9 games one at a time. But as of
right now, there is a lot of reason to be optimistic.
According to Ute Pac 10.2 logic the Ute games played thus far mean nothing.Montana St... throwaway game against a non-conference Div 1 FCS teamBYU... throwaway game, blowout against a non-conference nobodyUSC...
throwaway game, doesn't count because of sanctionsLots of bold talk
from fans whose team has played nobody this year and ranked #4 in the lesser
division.Gloat all you want about last week, you deserve some of it,
but your season is only beginning, week in and week out.
Bad feelings utah will loose 3 out of next 4 games, Wash, ASU and Cal
@worfMan Duckhunter you trying to hide behind other User names now? Sorry
you have no room to talk trash this year games over 54- 10. I hope the U
continues this momentum with Washington
Boy, did the Utes find a great time to join a BCS conference.The Pac
is weak (getting beat up by other leagues), and the Ute's division has little
competition for them this year with USC ineligible for post season play.Then the Utes blow out BYU on the road, which helps the Utes' stature in
their conference.The opportunity's there. So, don't fumble it!
@ worf | 4:17 p.m. Sept. 23, 2011 Mcallen, TX 54-10. Oh the
pain you must feel.LOL
@worf54-10: should be 68-10 had Kyle not pulled the starters off
early in Q4.I don't pay much about this Pac-12 power ranking. All I
want is the Utes keep improving each game
Re: worfYour kidding right? All I have to say is SCOREBOARD!!
Blah, blah, blah! By years end, the cougs will have a better win-loss record
and utes fans will be shouting excuses of tougher scheduling. I can hear the
Yeah, in your faces other Pac-12 teams, we are ranked 4th! That means a national
championship right? Just kidding JP, I know, one game at a time. Seriously
though, I think Utah has a good chance to win these next two games because they
are at home, but they will be tough gritty wins. Go Utes!
pac-10 rankings are foolish, so please Utah fans don't brag about it. The only
that matters is that we continue winning football games and put ourselves in a
position to complete in the standings for the south division.
