    Steven S Jarvis, I actually think the receiving corps will be better this year without DeVonte Christopher. Even though he had the ability to make some great plays and had a few fantastic games (he was called "the best receiver on the field" in the game at the Coliseum that included Robert Woods and Marqise Lee), I think his attitude was a bad influence on the offense, and now there should be better distribution to potentially much more gifted receivers in Dres Anderson and Kenny Scott, along with the fast, big-bodied Anthony Denham and Andre Lewis and the speedy, shifty Delshawn McClellon.

    I think you're spot on about the turnover problems being improved, putting the defense in much better situations, though. I think they'll pull a couple upsets and be in position to control their bowl destiny late in the season. That's when we'll see what the team is made of.

    Good luck to your team this year.

    I believe the Ute D will be a little bit better than they were last year. For one, I believe the Utes will turn the ball over less and keep the offense on the field a little bit longer. The second is that Blechen is a monster (in a good way). He should make it into the NFL barring injury. The Utes will need to somehow replace the very best return man to ever play the position, the top Running back and the top wide receiver who scored nearly all the points from the 5-7 team last year, but the D should be much improved.

    The Utes will be better than last year as a team, but not too likely better in record since they play the top two teams of the league finally. Utah should beat Weber State by a wide margin. None of the other games are guaranteed. I wish them the best of luck in their games except against USU and BYU.

    I see an 8-4 season

    I also think the south winner will have at least 2-3 conference losses, as they have the past couple seasons

    I think we have a good chance at making some noise. With 2-3 weeks left in the season we will be in contention for the crown

    Not that we will for sure win it(though I don't count us out) that's the beauty of having a balanced league.

    I think everyone but Colorado will be fighting for the title, which makes each game exciting and important

    Aggies and cougars seasons are essentially over after game 2 or 3 when they lose one game

    The beauty of a PAC 12 membership!

    Win over byu(seniors 4-0 sweep)
    Win over usu

    Mark it down!
