    I predicted after the utah/usu game that jenny83 would never post again. It appears I am correct. We may never hear from naval vet again either.

    Maybe you can apply for an assistant couching job.


    Here comes the tougher schedule card! I'm trying to quit my laughing.

    @ MLH

    I'm just happy to not be a Ute fan tonight.

    "Pride goeth before the fall" as someone once said. True BYU is 2 - 2 and so is Utah. And Utah defeated BYU again at the last moment on a field goal attempt that wasn't good. But BYU was 2 short plays away from being 4 - 0. Now I'm not saying they were going to be 4 - 0, but there were Ute partisans predicting Utah would be. And if the Utes had a do-over on a couple plays they could only pick up one more victory, not two. My point? The Utes finally got theirs tonight and now we see how irrelevant being a bottom feeder is in a BCS conference. Just remember those two BCS bowl wins and maybe the sun will still come up in the morning. Enough U bitterness already.

    If last weeks game agaist Utah was your worst game yet, than what do you call that thing Thursday night. What are you twelve, just think what a PAC12 schedule would do to byu. Utah was bad real bad tonight but the y was pathetic Thursday. Don't compare teams, schedules, scores, anything. BYU CANNOT BEAT BYU, you all say last week was our bowl game you keep playing like you have the last two weeks you will not see a bowl game. Our next game is with USC, your game is with that powerhouse team Hawaii what a joke talking smack like all you y fans do. Keep silent until you beat someone. If you can beat Hawaii you will be off to that 10 win season and a #25 ranking SO WHAT BIG DEAL

    How would you like to be an Arizona fan tonight.

    Utes got outplayed on both sides of the ball. Plain and simple.

    @Sammy G and Worf

    ASU was the better team tonight. No excuses. They worked the Utes. That being said, not sure there should be any Utah nor BYU fan on any board beating their chests. Both teams are mediocre at best. BYU may end up with a better record this year, but don't kid yourselves, it's not because they're better. They have a little weaker schedule than Utah. Looks like the hope of Utah football is Utah State. Because neither Utah nor BYU looks like they know how to play.

    Ah, the Utes have not disappointed this evening.

    Every conference needs teams like the Utes.

    Welcome to mediocrity.

    "We beat ourselves"?

    No, you got beat by Arizona State. Mark it down! Hurts, doesn't it.

    The silence of Jenny83 is loud.

    Busted... ASU dominated.

    Horrible Ute performance on both sides of the ball this evening.

    For those Ute "fans" that were in some sort of hypnotic trance and lost in some delusional Rose Bowl stupor... this was the cure.

    We beat ourselves and we need to change quarterbacks and fire everyone.

    It's a BEAT DOWN!!!

    Gosh, ASU scores even when using their 2nd string players. How is that? Shades of the UNLV loss.

    But you knew Utah would win when they were down only 21 - 0. I guess now that it's 37-7 the Utes still have a chance, huh? (Fat chance.)

    And you predicted Washington State would beat BYU. "Mark it down" you said.

    Well, your opinions are not very accurate.

    And your bitterness is showing, just like you accused BYU fans after the Ute victory last year. Enjoy it Bro!! Those turnovers are just wonderful, aren't they? Of course, BYU would be 4 - 0 with 2 different plays. Utah can claim only one more victory with a different play. But alas, it is what it is.

    Enjoy not being bowl eligible this year. And when you want a good laugh, just say "We were within one game of the inagural PAC 12 championship game and couldn't beat the worst road team in America at our stadium." That should bring tears to your eyes. Colorado won today, too; look out when you go to Boulder to play your new rival.

    Only differance between BYU and Utah is BYU will still make a bowl game and Utah will not, although Utah will still get paid better for finishing below .500. Looking at the Utes schedule they'll be lucky to win 2 more games (Wash St & Colorado).

    Although I believe BYU's offense will right the ship somewhat after tonight I'm not convinced Utah will. I was hopeful for Utah when they bolted to the PAC 12 thinking that thier good showing in that league would prove that other schools belong in the BCS that continually were being snubbed. Now I just hope they don't embarrass themselves. Guess I'll look to TCU to carry that torch now.

    Last thought is BYU better get itself into a conferance and quickly!

    Good thing we got to celebrate our huge three point win last week! If we continue to play like this we'll win four games this year. Maybe five if we can get by Cal at home. The only Rose Bowl game in our future is a loss to UCLA. I'm already looking forward to basketball - I'm sure Chris B can talk us into the big dance.

    ASU missed a field go. Utes are coming back.

    Who was the Ute fan who was talking smack about the Utes having the Rose Bowl and what did the lowley Aggies have to look forward to?

    I would rather in in the WAC and win than be in the PAC12 and lose!!!

    I don't know about "tight cougars" but I sure like ASU!!

    I recall Ms. B. posting several predictions this week. And now??

    Yes Chris for once you are tight! Lol. ASU has substituted for the starters in the third quarter. Pathetic road trip!

    'Stellar' offense and defense.

    Yet another barometer that tells us how really bad BYU offense is. ASU with 31 points and only halftime while BYU could only muster 21 points against Utes the entire game. BYU offense has never been so bad in memorable history. That said, hope ASU doubles their score against the Utes! Will only add more weight to making a change in BYU coaching, especially offensively (if they can ever drum up the courage).

    No fun losing is it? Utes are totally exposed. Blechen and White were ineffective. And the Utes will be lucky to get .500 with this kind of performance against the improving South Division.

    Colorado managed to beat Washington St. and we have Oregon State and UCLA with a close game. And of course USC did well against California.

    Your conference foes are licking their chops to get a piece of this Ute action.

    Wonder what the excuses are going to be for tonight's game, can't wait.

    These asu fans are so cordial. The ute defense and offense are resiprocating. Long night at the 7-11!

    Utah's bowl game was last week.

    Nice of BYU to hand them yet another win.

    Utterly embarrassing.
