    @ SportsFan:

    You said, "BYU will finish with a better record and national ranking than the U". I will grant you that.

    However, Your pounding my chest...ect. got to me.

    How do you feel about only beating ONE team with a better than a 500 record, and that was only by 3 points. Cup Cakes come easy.

    Look up the records and then look in the mirror and pound your chest.

    It's laughable that the ONLY highlights of your entire first two seasons in the PAC 12 are a couple of wins over a BYU team that will finish with a better record and national ranking than U.

    Predicting a possible bowl win for a team that may not even be invited to a bowl may help you sleep at night, but I wouldn't go around pounding my chest about it.

    A talented group of seniors who beat BYU 3 years in a row, a couple most likely going to the nfl, and 2 possibly 3 bowl wins.

    Godspeed Gentlemen, may every chapter in your life bring you success, joy, and all that this life has to offer that is good. Thank you.

    A talented group of Seniors whose talents were largely wasted because of poor coaching.

    IF they manage to beat Arizona and Colorado to finish 6-6 and become bowl eligible, one of the bowls being mentioned as a possibile destination for Utah is...

    the Armed Forces Bowl.

    It would be great to see this group win their last three. Hopefully the first one happens this Saturday.

    This is a great group of seniors that helped take Utah to a new conference while giving a great example to not ever giving up. They will be very missed and I wish them all the best.

    I really hope the team responds and sends them out with class by winning out and going to a bowl game. I would love to see Star have the game of his life and solidify his top 5 draft status. Perhaps the most humble All-American ever.

    Good luck guys and of course....

    Go Utes!!!

    "Whittingham noted that 18 of 21 seniors on scholarship are scheduled to graduate mid-year". He also said the other three should graduate in May, which should be 100%.
    That is an great accomplishment. The average for NCAA football is 71%. Stanford is 90%. Notre Dame is 97% Well done, Utes!

    Thank you, seniors, gonna have lots of memories of you, from Jon Hays to DeVonte Christopher on 4th and 14 in the Sun Bowl, to Mo Lee's big fumble recoveries against BYU, first picking up Failslev's muffed kickoff return last year, then the scoop n' score this year.

    Probably my favorite game involving a number of this year's seniors was in a blizzard at Pullman last year, Sean Sellwood's fake punt pass TD to Luke Matthews to open the scoring, then hearing the crowd scream as John White IV looked to be tackled at the line of scrimmage, then spun out and tip-toed 58 yards down the sideline to a suddenly deafening silence, and Coleman Petersen's perfect 4/4 FG, the last set up by a Mo Lee INT in OT, his 2nd of the game.

    Thanks, guys, and GO UTES!
