    Utah put on a show. Hit after hit by the defense showed everyone what this years team is all about - toughness.
    Our qb isnt the most talented but as tough and determined as they come. Our star rb is small, but still takes defenders into the endzone with him (when not being carried in by our tough O-line). Position after position, fresman to senior, this team is determined to win and has made big improvement since the start of the year. We can only imagine what would have been had wynn not got hurt.
    GO UTES!

    "Utah fans would love to have their team throw for 400 yards and 5 TD's."

    Ummmm--I don't think you know Utah fans as much as you might think you do. Utah fans would "love" to see their team win, by hook or by crook. If they have to win by having the left offensive tackle put his helmet on backwards, pick up a fumble and pirouette into the end zone--they'll take it and say, "thank you for the td and interpretive dance, young man." Utah has been decimated at QB and they are finding ways to win sans Wynn. We'll take 'em any way we can get them and if it comes by means of my favorite running back in years grabbing 167 yards in the slop? Well, that looks prettier than a Van Gogh wheat field to me.

    Utah's Defense is stellar. The Offensive Line is blocking with a ton of pride. John White IV is the steady rock, and Hays is learning to manage the game. Utah has there limitations ,but they are getting the most out of themselves. What a credit to the Ute players and coaching staff. I wondered three weeks ago if Utah would pack it in. Great job Utes.

    I think Utah fans like Utah football, and today they saw Utah football.
