    "All these teams could smoke the utes in the second half if they wanted to..."

    Yep, everyone except Northern Colorado and your team

    Duck, that's a different story from, "Well they are certainly talented enough to win the game tonight." (Last Saturday talking about Cal)

    Classless-Max, in what game, outside of ASU, have the Utes not been in to start the 3rd quarter? Utah State was outscored 10-0 in a 10 point game at halftime, BYU was outscored 17-0 with the score tied, USC was held scoreless with a 3 point lead, Oregon State was held scoreless up by 7. So if "all these teams could smoke the utes in the second half," why aren't they? But again, don't let logic get in the way of your argument.

    ha ha ha Dirk, are you really going to the good coaching card? What really has been happening is that the other teams is already so far ahead that they let off the gas petal. All these teams could smoke the utes in the second half if they wanted to pull onside kicks up 42-0, but they have more class than that.

    According to whittingham,

    “I think it’s a product of sticking with what you believe in, not panicking, not making wholesale changes and believing in what you’re doing,” he said. “The players believe, the coaches believe, everybody’s bought in. Like I’ve said, just staying the course is the best way to put it and not being too disruptive.”

    Nice spin coach but I think it is more attributable to just playing a really bad team.

    Nice spin Dirk!

    Utah's defense shows up for one quarter a game and we're supposed to be impressed that Utah's coaches are making good halftime adjustments?

    Whatever happened to creating a game plan to stop the opponent in the first half?
