    I just love the continued attempts by D. Harmon and the DN to equalize byu's situation as an independent with Utah's status as a member of an elite conference. No, Mr. Harmon, Georgia Tech in Provo is in no way, shape, or form, comparable to Stanford in Salt Lake City. Further, a one and done arrangement for GT in Provo is in no way, shape, or form similar to the regular rotation of Stanford in Salt Lake City.

    Nice try folks...

    I am anxious to see the media spin next year when byu lot as an independent hits them squarely between the eyes given their 2014 schedule. byu's 2011 schedule was as good or better than they have next year.

    How about a story on what went wrong with byu's 2014 schedule?

    Arizona, USC, and Stanford on byu's schedule are years (YEARS) down the road as Holmoe desperately continues to make byu appear to be a part of the elite Pac-12. Larry Scott's responses to DN reporters regarding further expansion by the Pac-12 and byu should put an end to those pipe dreams. LOL!

    You neglect to recognize that Whittingham and Erickson have taken teams higher than Chris Petersen ever has.

    You neglect to recognize that Petersen's BSU Broncos have absolutely DESTROYED teams led by Erickson & Wittingham as head coaches. Just sayin...

    LOL, the delusions continue in spite of reality

    BYU will beat Georgia Tech, the matchup favors the Cougs and it is at home. The Cougs are mostly healthy again and Hill has gained some experience. Van Noy and the D will be awesome as always...

    Utah does matchup with Stanford, but not enough to overwhelm the Cardinals. I would love to see an upset, but I don't see it as likely. I do think the Utes will do better than many suppose and keep the score close. The Utes will makes some serious noise in the PAC-12 next year.

    Utah State is a question mark for me. Their defense can play well against Boise St. But will their offense score enough to keep them in the fight?

    Aren't dreams and fantasies fantastic? Good thing for it too because I would fear for many delusional ute fans if they weren't allowed to dream to somehow repress the reality that Utah will never be an upper echelon program in the PAC12. I wish it weren't the case because I would like to see Utah be successful, but there's no fighting reality.

    Good luck to all three programs this weekend. And remember ute fans, I said it first (long before the delusional ute "fan" we all love to hate)...Utah will have a shot at upsetting Stanford because I believe the match-up is favorable. BYU should beat GT...one of Utah's little BCS friends, and USU will struggle without Keeton against the broncos.

    And of the coaches that will be in the state of Utah on Saturday, the two that have led their teams to the highest final ranking:

    1. Dennis Erickson
    2. Kyle Whittingham

    I love being better than other teams!

    As soon as we get a monster win in the Pac 12, it will be the final goodbye to the mwc quality ute football program and a true welcome in the prestigious Conference of Champions. It will mark the beginning of many years being in the race for Pac 12 titles and Rose Bowls. We can be just as successful as many of the Pac 12 programs. Several years ago if we had 6 picks against a top 10 UCLA team we'd have lost 50-10. Now with 6 picks we barely lose.

    I like our chances against Stanford, a lot.

    Utah 32
    Stanford 27

    Best win in the state of Utah for any team of the last 20 years.

    The premier program in the state of Utah, is Utah.
