    Good observation. The pattern seems to be an article on Utah football and Chris B is competing with the anti Chris to see who can make the most annoying post. Then a handful of supposed Y fan post how bad Utah is. Mixed in are a few comment that are actually on topic.

    I like the combination of size and speed that you see with Booker. His TD run was very well played. He kept under control and waited for his downfield blocking to escort him down the field. Poole had a nice long run earlier this year but when he got loose he outran the lineman and got taken down by a safety.

    Better ball carrier? Booker, no question. Better all-around (pass-blocking, receiving, small details), Poole is the better back. However, it makes more sense having him be the 3rd down and change of pace back, so I agree with Booker getting the nod at the start.

    Just observing,
    Yes that team that lost to Nevada and Rutgers at home. The same team that was 1-3 prior to the u game and the same team that battles it out with the utes for the bottom of the conference. although I think u will win the battle this year. You have it correct. Thanks for asking.

    This is the right choice. Booker is a much better RB.

    It's almost as if there's a rivalry between the teams.

    UCLA 150
    Utah 3

    Mark it down!

    Five comments so far - one from Chris B and four from byU fan. Classic!

    Go Booker!

    The Anti Chris:

    Just curious are you alluding to the WSU team that has the number one passing offense in the nation and stood toe to toe with Oregon (The number 2 team in the nation)? Are you alluding to that "very bad team"?

    "I think our guys are going to come out there and have that energy as we did when we played Michigan."

    You only scored one offensive TD against Michigan as well. I think you ought to set your sights a little higher than replicating that.

    Congrats to him but the top back on a poor team is not that impressive. If he was the highlight in a loss to a very bad WSU team on Saturday I think the utes are in serious trouble this weekend. UCLA will stuff him and he will be held to under 50 yards. Mark it down.

    Dude can scoot....hope the Bruins can limit him as they did D.J. Foster of ASU.

    Very impressed with his work ethic and his motor out there on the field. He and Clay were the highlights on Saturday.

    Go UTES
