    No I'm not conflicted, I'm a Georgia Bulldog fan and love SEC football. Hence the "dawgs" in my username. There's nothing about me that is remotely close to Chrissy.

    Go Dawgs.

    Go Utes! Go Yale!:
    I think Surf covered your argument pretty well. Also considering how many and how high teams from the SEC have been ranked and the fact that they have consistently been power ranked as the toughest conference says it all. The SEC is the best conference on the planet at least for the last 15 years. Yes the PAC12 is getting better but they may just as easily waiver in the next few years. The same can't be said of a conference that has dominated CFB for nearly the entirety of the BCS era.

    Taysom Hill will be around for another three or four years, and will enter the NFL draft as a 29 year old, like all those QBs down south...

    @Go Utes! Go Yale!

    Seriously? You made a statement like that knowing that the data exists to refute that claim?

    Lets just go back a dozen years or more (because U guys are fond of using only the last decade+ as proof of anything) and see what conferences had a team playing for the NC game. Winners on the left losers on the right.

    1998 SEC vs ACC
    1999 ACC vs BE
    2000 B12 vs ACC
    2001 BE vs B12
    2002 B10 vs BE
    2003 SEC vs B12
    2004 PAC10 vs B12
    2005 B12 vs PAC10
    2006 SEC vs B10
    2007 SEC vs B10
    2008 SEC vs B10
    2009 SEC vs B10
    2010 SEC vs PAC10
    2011 SEC vs SEC
    2012 SEC vs Notre Dame
    2013 ACC vs SEC

    The SEC involved in these games were TN, FL, LSU, AUB, AL. Hardly "just Alabama".

    @surfisup and cougsdawgs:

    Ekute said best conference on the planet, which is correct, as collectively it is the best conference. If you're referring to the best one-team conference on the planet, then give the nod to Alabama-SEC.

    The sec devalued your team and you dream of a scheduling agreement with the PAC, yet you take a shot at a comment complimenting the PAC. Conflicted? You might be more like Chris than you think.

    Go Utes.

    Haha, well done. My thought exactly. It was a gracious compliment by ekute.

    Thanks for the warm wishes for the SEC. We appreciate it.

    Chris B,
    I just love your optimistic U attitude ! i want to use this same attitude for the Y . 12-0 baby and a new years day bowl !

    Chris B:
    I really don't care who u cheer for. Some fans have class and some don't...will always be that way. You decide which fan u want to be but I really couldn't care less what u choose. As for the "us" and "we" you're referring to, I choose letting others decide what they'll cheer for. I doubt they want u speaking for them.

    I have not heard anything regarding the Idaho St. game but i have heard that Fresno St. has penciled their game in as a win !


    Did you also year that Utah has penciled in our 2016-2018 game as wins!?!

    Can you say SEVEN-PEAT!

    cougsndawgs - correction on mine, anyone who plays against byu third!

    LOL, but I think you got the idea.

    Go Utes!

    7-5 this year baby and best bowl in the state.

    Sorry, we'll never cheer for you guys, even if you cheer for us.

    You wont see any Utes saying "Go cougars" and for good reason. We cheer for Utah first, our Pac 12 brothers second, and anyone who plays for byu third.

    Enjoy your worthless bowl you'll be destined to after your first loss of the season - how anti-climactic that must be!

    Re: Max "...he certainly wont leave in bowls in them."

    There's as much chance of Coach Whitt leaving after this year as Taysom Hill going to the NFL after this year as many BYU fans like to speculate. And- the bowls in Coach Whitt's cupboard are certainly larger and nicer than the plastic give-aways in your coach's closet. Any of them have BCS on them? I didn't think so.

    Did someone say, Utah will be a soft spot on Idaho States schedule?

    Good luck Utah. I hope things turn around this season. I like Whit and want to see him be successful so here's hoping U go bowling this season.

    hahaha in trouble with the law? You act like this kid has had issues previously to a underage alcohol ticket. Health will be his only concern.

    Go Utes

    Just over three weeks to the first game. I can't wait!!

    Naaaaaaascarrrrrr baby,

    While Whitt wont leave the cupboard completely bare for the interim coach, he certainly wont leave in bowls in them.

    Every year every team starts out optimistically, but unless Utah can keep Wilson healthy (and out of trouble with the law), and pick up still one more offensive coach's game plans, I don't see Utah doing so well. Then again, there was that Standford game last year. I do wish them well, but talk is cheap!

    @2013 Ute Seniors-
    ".. its anyone's chance except Colorado in the South."

    Funny thing is I heard Colorado saying "it's anyone's chance except Utah in the South."

    I think the Utes will be lucky to get 5 wins. Most likely they end the season with 3.

    The University of Utah Pac 12 Utes will go 7-5 and go to the best bowl of any team in the state.

    The Pac 12 utes will also be the only team in Utah with any chance whatsoever at a big time bowl game, big time conference title, and the playoffs one third the way through the season.

    That's the beauty of being with the big boys - as we've seen several years in the Pac 12 south, a lot of the teams beat up on each other, so really its anyone's chance except Colorado in the South.

    The winner of the South will have at least 2, if not 3 conference losses.

    That's what makes being in a big time conference exciting.

    Unlike our WAC brothers, their season and quest for anything special is over after their first loss!

    Go UTES
