    All of the grades were inflated.

    The absolute highest grade possible for losing a home game against struggling Oregon State should have been a C-.

    OK, students. You had four tests in your class. Your grades were B+, B, C+ and C+. So, when the report card comes out, what grade do you expect to receive?

    In the Deseret News, those four test scores get you a C.

    Wake up.

    If you give up 51, you don't get a B plus, you get D minus!

    Utah's defensive line plugs holes and stops the run well. But they don't get consistent pressure on the QB.

    Yes the DBs are inexperienced but they were in position to make a play quite often tonight only to see Mannion put the ball in the perfect spot. He is too good to have time to throw.

    If Utah can stop the run on Taysom Hill and Jamaal Williams then they should be okay. Hill won't be that accurate but Utah has to bounce back mentally and physically and be fundamentally sound on BYU.

    Now Utah's offense despite how potent they have been the first three weeks will also need to be sharp because BYU's defense is better than anything Utah has faced thus far.

    Turnovers on offense hurt but it's hard not to give the offense an A grade. It's a shame Utah has finally produced and offense this year during a season where the staple of Utah football, the defense is young and struggling.

    Utah showed a lot of heart... I feel sorry for the next team the Utes have to face?

    This should have never gone into OT. Chris B promised a win and a national ranking, I wrote it down. OSU is just an average team that will contend with the Utes for the bottom spot in the pac. Utah just took WSU's place in the basement. WsU is looking pretty good this year and will most likely go to a bowl. Utah, Colorado, Cal, and Colorado, will stay home this year.
