    The article mentioned he might be on the hot seat so I made my comment based on that. I do not beleive he would leave if we asked him even for the head coach position. Hovever, if he were let go I think he would make a great choice for either HC or OC.

    Mesa Coug,

    Are you suggesting that Sark would leave his current position if BYU asked him to become their offensive coordinator? Or do you think that Washington may fire him, and then BYU should offer him the OC job?


    Maybe I am being naive, but I don't think GoRed was "digging" at the BYU fans with his comment.

    You have complimented me in the past for being a genuine fan, and I can tell you, EVERY game the Utes play has meaning to me. And that meaning is independent on how the game's outcome is viewed by BYU fans.

    I don't expect my buddies who are loyal fans of other teams to look at the final three games on Utah's schedule as being particularly significant. But I can tell you this - the quality of my sleep each Saturday night is largely dependent on how the Utes perform!

    For me, these Pac-12 seasons have been great. Playing better opponents regularly has been more gratifying than playing teams you are expected to beat by 20.

    There are only 2 "around 0.500" teams in the nation that have 2 or more wins against top 30 opponents - Washington and Arizona.

    "it's nice to be playing meaningful, competitive games this late in the season."

    Nice dig but of course this game is just as meaningless as any other game involving a couple of teams hovering aorund .500 (in the utes case under .500) and hoping to just become bowl eligible. It litterally has no meaning at all outside of that. Neither team has any chance to win the conference and neither team has any chance to end up ranked. It means something to utah "fans" like yourself as you hope to avoid the humiliation of a losing, bowless season and the accompanying mocking you will receive all off season from BYU fans. But don't mistake your angst filled desires as "meaningful" to anyone or anything else. Outside of that this game is meaningless.

    Wilson seems to be confident, judging from the last several games, in the whole offensive system. I think we've seen Johnson also come a long way concerning how to game plan, and adapt as the game progresses. This will be a good test against a good PAC 12 team on the road. And either way, it's nice to be playing meaningful, competitive games this late in the season.

    Go Utes!!

    Maybe he could come be the OC in Provo. Almost anyone would be better than Doman.

    I dont think this game will even be close. The team has finally figured it out how to put all phases of the game together. There will be no stopping this team the rest of the season.

    Utah 34
    Washington 21
