the utah UCLA rivalry will be the... oh wait.new sign at RES...
"Welcome to Pick City"
@ekute,I don't know about BYU, but I think USU would beat Utah by
more than a touchdown this week, and any week other than week 1. That being
said, in week 1 Utah won, so it's said and done. Utah took the beehive
boot. We will see how the rest of the year goes.
@ ekute:Yes, I truly believe that BYU has improved from 2 weeks ago.
Most articles about their last game concur, as well as what the stats showed.
Watching it, I was also impressed... except with the turnovers they had. And
since Utah has been idle since then, there is no indication that they've
moved either direction. If Utah really excells tonight and/or BYU
lays an egg tomorrow night, I will probably then change my opinion. But until
either of those things happen, my opinion stands as is.
24 - 17 USU wins. The Y is the weakling of the state among the big 3.
Tators,I know Chris has your goat and you're trying to get his,
but realistically, why would you say that Utah would not beat either team today?
Have the Utes declined? Are the Aggies better? Are the cougars better today than
they were 2 weeks ago? Are the Utes so lucky, that they play byu on the only day
of the year that they would of beaten them, every year? Does it really comfort
you to incessantly call the Utes a cellar dweller knowing that you're a
perennial loser to them.
Fortunately for USU and BYU... neither has to worry about trying to avoid once
again finishing in the basement of any conference... power or not... the way
Utah always has to.Every reasonable fan would much rather have their
team competing for the top spot in a mid-major conference as opposed to always
competing for the cellar of a so-called power conference.
@ Chris B:The Utes are so fortunate they played USU and BYU so early
in the season. I genuinely doubt they could beat either one at this point. As it
was, they beat both games by single digits after being outperformed in offensive
yardage and first downs. The one thing the Utes are definitely best at is
trickery. UCLA will put them and you back in your places tonight. A shot of
reality can often be a good thing. Watch, experience and learn. In
the very latest national rankings, USA Today and the Sagarin Ratings (the ones
most widely used by experts) both still have USU ranked 6 places better than
Utah. That means that the Utes are currently only the 2nd best team in the
state. Sorry to burst your bubble. That totally backs my claim that had Utah
played USU in Logan, they would've beaten them by a lot more than Utah did
in SLC. But don't feel too badly, Chris. #2 isn't so bad.
It could be worse. If you were to play BYU this weekend, you'd then be #3.
So smile... at least until the Utes game tonight.
Our Colorado rivalry will be the best in the country. It will prove the rosebowl
champions each year. We will beat weber again by 70 points to be the best in the
state. Go utes!
The byu rivalry will likely be one of the best non power conference rivalry
games in the country.It will be exciting each year to see who the
second best team in the state is.Good luck to the aggies.
