    I agree with the assesment of Peterson. It seems like field goals aren't even an option this year. That needs to change.

    I thought the offense as a whole did a lot better job this week sustaining drives - they didn't have near as many 3 and outs as they had the previous few weeks. That being said, our senior leadership has to step up and make plays. If Wilson puts the ball in your hands, you need to hold onto it. Way too many dropped balls Saturday night.

    I was glad to see White get more carries this week too - I wish they would have kept giving it to either him or York when we get close to the endzone instead of running QB draws back to back.

    Wilson is improving and I think still has some very good upside, he just needs guys to step up and make some plays when he gets them the ball.

    Kyle is still doing a great job the truth is we need better athletes and a few years of good recruiting classes. He has another good class shaping up this year and that will help.

    Go Utes!

    I think ChrisB is in hibernation. The month of October has been pretty cold for many Utah fans....I'm looking for him to pop his head up this next week with a prediction against Cal....a very winnable game for Utah.

    Not a Ute fan. Not a Cougar fan. But I really love reading the comments on the football stories. Where's ChrisB by the way?

    I guess we can close the book on the 2012 season. Good points? It seems like we may have a QB that can take us out of the past two years of abyss. It seems like we can start working on our single biggest weakness...O Line (Urban made them lift weights till they puked ).

    Bad news....Whit may not be able to competitively recruit to give us a chance in a Big Boy Conference.

    Beating the goofs down south isn't enough for me....

    If 2013 is like 2011-12...I'm ready to regroup from the top down...what say Doc Hill??

    I think you mean "kinda close" Rhett because it was far from "interesting".

    Interesting, not really. More like inept! So the utes are settling for moral victories and last place in the PAC. Sad.

    I feel like the offense's grades should be given out individually: Travis Wilson: A-, John White: D, DeVonte Christoper: F, Dres Anderson: C, Jake Murphy: B-. Rain or no rain, when the QB puts the ball in your hands, you need to catch it.
