Failed 4th and 2 in dying moments determined the game
Steven S Jarvis, who's the best defender in the league you claim UA has? If
it's Marquis Flowers, I have to disagree with you. He is very good, but
nearly every PAC team has a comparable LB; Hayes Pullard at USC, Shaq Thompson
at UW, Carl Bradford at ASU, and Shayne Skov and Trent Murphy both from
Stanford. But UCLA's Anthony Barr is the best defender in the West,
possibly the nation. Yes, I know you're partial to your guy at BYU, who is
very good, but Barr is better.
There is a reason, well probably eleven of them actually, that Stanford looked
like the Walking Dead last night.Orchard--He is the best Ute
defender, comparable in value to KVN. The Stanford QB didn't have the time
to be on the money because Orchard wanted to give him a nice friendly bear hug.
The rest of the D has been solid as well. While it stunk losing all that talent
last year, it sure looks like the pieces are in place on the defensive side of
things to compete.Next week's game is on the road against
Arizona. This match is the rubber match to see just how good the Utes are.
Stanford was a great team, but also a good match up for the Utes. Arizona is a
good team, just not as good as the Utes in my opinion. Since its on the road
AND the Arizona Defense has the best defender in the league I am expecting the
Utes to have to fight for the win even harder. They should be up to it.
I didn't see any of this game as I was at the BYU game but obviously a very
nice win for utah. Perhaps this is a sign of things to come?
Cougsndawgs- Thanks for the classy posts. Thanks to the other congratulatory
cougs. I am amazed that the dnews censors some of my posts that I
think are pretty tame, but they just let the chris Bs keep spewing the same
drivel all year long. How about cleaning some of that up? Great
game Utes! I was so excited to see the fight in the team last night. They
still believe in themselves.
Congrats to the entire Ute nation!!! Awesome win had to work so I was unable to
watch the game! Way to hold on at the end!!!Go Cougs!!!
CougsndawgsWest Point , UTThis sure doesn't look like the
5th ranked team in the country. It's like the Walking Dead for Stanford
right now.---------How do you know? When was the last
time you've seen a top 5 team play? I was at the game, Stanford is a legit
top 10 team. The only other team that I can see Stanford losing to is Oregon.
Great win! Go UTES!
Nice win Utah :)
I apologize for the passive-vindictive overtone of my posts today. It
overshadowed the ever present congratulatory undertone of my heart. This win
today and the 3 quarters of shut out defense of an offense that made WSU look
small is amazing! Win out the season and great possibilities abound! California
is showing that it won't be one of three teams necessary to knock UCLA out
of the picture tonight. However, Stanford, Oregon and USC still remain on their
schedule. ASU is one of your 6 victories and would secure the tiebreaker sending
you to the championship game for a second chance to beat Stanford or Oregon.
Please take care of business and enjoy today's victory! :) Signed, JTTM and
Great win tonight, Utes, you worked hard for it and you deserve it! A win
against a top-5 team sends a statement - especially in conference!
RR, you must not pay attention to Utah football. Utes have now won 49
consecutive games with a lead at halftime, second best active streak in the
Thanks to the classy Y fans for your kind words. BTW,what was that you were
@justtheliesmanWhy not let us enjoy our tough victory over the #5
team in the country. We already beat your team, so let us enjoy this
hard-fought victory.Show class, if possible.
ThomasJeffersonAgreed. The lion's share of posts from BYU fans are
indeed congratulatory. My thanks to you as well.
JustTheTruthMan,For what it's worth, "the Alabama and BCS
blah blah blah", and the win over Stanford are much more recent than
"beaten a #1 and never brought home a trophy". Thanks for continuing to
raise the bar, It's looking like the Utes are up to it. Go Utes.
Cougsndawgs Read your posts...thanks for the well wishes. Total
Class!!Well done, Utes...well done, indeed!!
@JustTheTruthMan"No conference championship game."I wonder what that's like...can you explain it to me? What's it
like to not have a conference championship game to play for. What's it
like for your season to be over when you lose the first game of your season to a
team that is winless since? Oh, and scoreboard.
No, the argument is not put to bed permanently... Utah still has to get over the
hurdle of never beaten a #1 and never brought home a trophy... once that
happens, all the other also ran performances of Alabama and BCS blah blah blah
will make a lick of relevance! Until then, today is only a victory against a top
5 team in the 7th week of the season. Oh, and the only other acceptable loss
regardless of location of games played is November 16th at Oregon... Bring home
a W on that day and perhaps Roses are in yer future... Until then.... today is
1-2 in conference.... Who will beat UCLA? That loss is gonna sting with a loss
against Oregon... Cuz 3 games... Nope... No Roses... No conference championship
There's our Pac 12 signature win, the Utes are constantly improving every
game, I expect more big wins this year! Ute fans, enjoy it, this is not about
byu. Classy byu fans, Thank You.Go Utes!
Stay humble.Work harder this upcoming week than you've never
worked before.GO UTES!
@JakeIt's amazing how you Cougars are already taking jabs at
us. We beat a top 5 team and your'e still bagging on Utah. Have fun
looking forward to that Idaho school for girls you got on your schedule. Call me
when you happen to beat a national championship contender.
My favorite post of the week is below:Down under Salt
Lake City, UTIt is laughable that utes fans think they have a prayer
against Stanford. Utah will be 0-3 in the conference and heading for a 4-8
season.Who's laughing now? GO UTES
Nice win. Utah played well in all phases. Would've been more dominating
statement had we not given up that kick return.Pac 12 is good top to
We don't always play teams in the top five, but when we do, we prefer to
Cougsndawgs,Whatever, Utah out physicaled and out played Stanford.
You minimize it by saying Stanford had a bad game.Way to go Utes!
See ya on Sports Center!
Good job Utah from a cougar fan
...and remember who predicted it first ute fans (I mean besides CB who predicts
Utah in every game). So excited for Utah right now!
Does this put that silly which team in the state is the best argument to bed
Crow for us? How bout keeping humble and finishing the season 10-2? That is the
only way you prevent your own crow pie! You can't beat the best of the
conference and lose to anyone else... Otherwise, what really was done other than
destroying championship hopes for another team? Nothing is correct. I appreciate
your humility and not letting this victory get to your heads.
Huge win by Utah. Stanford was a legit team and Utah made them look bad.
Perhaps the Utes do still have a shot at the championship game.
Both my schools (Utah and Penn State) pull off the upsets in the same minute.
What a day!
Congrats Utes! Great game. Hopefully Utah can take this momentum on the road and
keep it going. Huge win.
Nice win for the utes.
Great win, Utes.
UTES!!!! WHAT A STAND!!
Lol oops. Sorry ekute I wasn't trying to be redundant, I thought I got
Ekute:I'm not making any digs. I'm making an honest assessment.
Good teams have bad games. Did you see Clemson v BC? I've watched Stanford
3 times this year. This is the worst I've seen them play. That's not a
dig, that's the truth. I picked UTAH to win this game before the season
even started if you recall. I cheer for Utah whenever they aren't laying
BYU or USU. I thought I'd made that clear to most people on these
boards...apparently not to you.
That was a quick review on such an important play. Ball looked like it moved
when it touched the ground to me, which would be an incomplete pass. But ok,
this is a game! Stay on the pedal, offense! I hope Travis's hurt hand will
still let him throw downfield.
Ute fans make it difficult to root for the U, but Stanford will be a great win
if they pull it out. (Wish it were on a channel that I get.)
Wow, defense held them to less than 250 yards through 3 quarters! That's
incredible. Keep it up in the 4th!
Ekute,I'm cheering for Utah. The fact you take my honest assessment
as digs says you're a little insecure. Utah is playing well, but honestly
I've watched Stanford 3 times this year...they've never looked this
bad. Did you catch any of the Clemson v BC game today? Or Georgia v mizzou
(ugh). The best teams in the country have bad games...it's reality, not my
Cougsndawgs, Love your jealous digs. Thanks for supporting big time
football in the state. I don't see anybody participating under the cougar
blog. Solid defense...and how about that offense! #Erickson
Best win in the state in 20 years. Rushing the field!
This sure doesn't look like the 5th ranked team in the country. It's
like the Walking Dead for Stanford right now. All momentum on Utah's side.
Keep it going utes.
Utes are killing Stanford w/ that inside zone read. to Chris B &
Arizona Reader...Utes beating Bama is, was, & will always be the
apex game for college football in Zion.
A 7 point lead means Stanford is going down? You guys don't pay attention
to utah football. They haven't kept a lead for a lead for W in the PAC yet
this season. Chill out kids.
BACK in PAC 12 south race!I love my PAC 12 membership!
Utes playing out of their gord, and ute fans counting their chickens before they
Chris b was right. Chris b was right. Chris b was right.
And of course, CB is more concerned about BYU fans eating crow...typical.
Looking good so far Utah. Remember I'm the only BYU fan that picked this as
Utah's upset of the year. I figure at some point Stanford is going to get
physical...sure haven't seen it yet.
Hoping the Utes can pull off the W....and YES, I am a BYU fan. Cougs will take
care of Ga Tech for sure. Chris B if they win, this isn't better that Utah
beating Alabama, or BYU beating Oklahoma a few years ago.
Get the crow ready for byu fans. Told you!
Stanford is going DOWN
Travis to Dres!...da da da, da da da.
I thought Stanford was supposed to be physical. Looks like this might be a
shootout, which isn't what anyone expected. I completely agree with the
announcer in the game. Stanford doesn't blow people out, so all utah has to
do is keep fighting until the 4th qtr and they can win this game,
Told you!Utes WILL win
Go utes!Go Georgia tech!Go aggies
We are going to do this! Upset coming.
Ouch!Hope this isn't how the whole game goes.
Wow. Too easy. The route appears to be on.
Utah 32Stanford 27Best win for any team in the state in 20
years. Tonight will long be remembered as the turning point in our
time in the PAC 12 from poor team to dominant force in the PAC 12 southStorming the field in 3 hours...,Go utes!Onward and upward.
We will all remember october 12 2013 as the day we took down top 5
