    If the Utes can bring their "A" game every week like they did against USC, I don't see why they can't win the rest of their games. But they have to want to bring it every week, and I just don't think there is enough motivation from the coaches or the leaders on the team for each player to want to come and bring their "A" game every week. That is a serious problem! Go UTES!

    For your sake I hope you are right. You are definately a good fan for your team.

    When Utah bounces back, they will quiet the naysayers. Look, ASU ans USC are as tough as the schedule will get. Unfortunately, like last year, the first 4 conference games are the toughest. If Utah gets one of the next two (either UCLA or Oregon State), they will beat California, Arizona, Washington State, and Colorado. I do think Utah loses to the Huskies in Seattle though. If they pull that one out, this team goes 8-4. I say Utah goes 7-5. They start 0-3 in the PAC 12, losing to UCLA, then rebound to beat Oregon State. From there, Utah only loses once more to Washington. They go 5-4 in the PAC 12 and 7-5 overall. Hays will finish strong with his solid character, and next year Travis Wilson becomes the QB Utah has been waiting for (that is until Utah runs him too much like Taysom Hill).

    Big plays were a big factor for both teams Thursday. USC and Utah got defensive TDs, and USC had the 85 yard TD pass when Utah had them pinned deep. only down 24-21 in the fourth quarter. The big play TD called back before the half changed the complexion of the game. Utah did rebound to hold USC scoreless in the third quarter, but Utah's offense was three and out in the second had too many times to keep the defense fresh against a superior talented USC.
