    Saying it's worth the lumps is an attempt to stay positive at this point in the season. Now scuttle back to the byu articles, which you won't find me trolling, and deposit your two cents there. Focus on your own team's inadequacies since they haven't even sniffed NC status since going independent.

    "largely due to the atrocious play of Travis Wilson"

    How can that be? Kyle promised us that we had 2 top tier PAC QBs this year.

    Is it really breaking from tradition when it's already the 3rd year in a row? More like broken, not breaking.

    Unfortunately, you may be closer to the truth than most Utah fans are willing to accept - middle to bottom of the PAC probably is the new normal for Utah.

    Sure we expect to have a break through season once in a while, but those breakthroughs could be even fewer are farther between than the occasional good seasons the Utes had in the WAC - 30+ years between conference championships, 1964 to 1995, but it will probably take a lot longer for the Utes to win their 1st championship.

    "... well worth the lumps..."

    Am I reading an Affordable Care Act testimonial?

    I think the majority of Ute fans are fed up with losing and the ongoing QB mess... year after year after year.

    There is an enormous difference between MWC and PAC 12 competition, as stated in the article. Breaking from mid conference traditions to establishing new elite conference traditions are well worth the lumps the Utes are enduring since making the switch. The ball will start bouncing their way. Whit's Winning Ways will return to traditional form. Sooner rather than later would be nice!
