Whoever huntley played for would have won the game, take him away from Utah and
give him to BYU and BYU would have won a whole lot bigger than Utah because
BYU's dumb mistakes were primarily from our own QB throwing 3 picks.Funny thing is, we were supposed to have the better QB and DBs, we
certainly had neither.BYU needs some soul searching, this next game
will be ugly, after what will be a 1-3 season being embarrassed by LSU, missing
every chance to beat Utah (who really played sloppy aside from huntley and the D
and special teams), and coming off what I hope isn't another shut-out by
Wiscy, BYU gets a bye week to prepare for USU.USU will come gunning
for BYU and has shown themselves capable of beating BYU in years past, so BYU
better be up for that game as the tune-up before Boise and Mississippi State.I love the coaching staff, but we never should have started the season
so unprepared, you can't win games without a run game to challenge the
defense and keep them in check. BYU could still turn it around, but sadly the
best we can do is mediocre after this start by winning games that we always
should have won unless we beat one of the last 2 remaining big teams.
Huntley looked like Taysom Hill before is 12 season ending injuries. I hope it
stays that way. I would hate to see him get injured. Mangum might be finished.
As bad as his stats are, they don't reflect how poorly he has played. It
might be time for a change. If you stick with the pro style offense, give Detmer
a look. If you back off the PS and move more to Spread, give Hoge a look.
Mangum is not the same guy he was. I'm not sure what happened, but I
don't see any game left in him. When BYU gets down by 24 points in the 2nd
quarter next week, if Mangum comes out for another series, I'm turning off
I agree with London, I was actually having anxiety watching him run. I thought
more than once that he was headed for a serious injury. I'm glad he
survived the game, but at that pace, it's only time before he gets hurt.
He's got a very good arm and he's accurate. Keep him in the pocket.

not coming back. Sorry BYU fans.
huntley was absolutely amazing!that being said, 190lbs and running
like that is scary in PAC play - Taysom kept getting hurt and he's got 45
or 50 lbs on Huntley.Awesome QB - but really risky in how he was
running.Both QBs are bruised bad today I'm sure, I bet Tanner
has a bruise that says "HANSEN" backwards in his rib-cage today.Congrats utes!

think huntley may have the best arm i have ever seen on a utah quarterback.
he can even throw bullets in opposite direction to his movement. throws a
tight spiral that looks easy to catch.thought utah should have
thrown ball more downfield, as the receivers were continually getting open.
utah actually played pretty conservative football, for the most part. had
thought taylor had the authority to open it up a lot more. with huntley's
are and the speed of receivers would think they try several fly patterns during

@blue & white - Boise, IDAll that dynamic play only scored 19
points and a 6 pt win. The Y defense was great. The headline should be the Y
offense improved but not enough and more work is needed.-----7 stright moral victories!The headline should say Utah
played horrible but still improved to 7-3 at LES.
Tyler Huntley is seriously one of the best QBs I have seen. By the time he
leaves Utah, whenever that will be, he could possibly shred Alex Smith's
records. Nothing but praise for the mature way he played the entire game. Great

preseason--right up to game time--about a new sheriff, legacy coaches, awesome
players and predictions of a big victory are now now hurt at being reminded it
was all nonsense.
Huntley is the real deal. He is good. I'm just amazed at how the Utes get
a new QB and BYU has future heisman winners and can't beat the Utes.
Could it be that... the QB factor has shifted to the University of Utah?
I'm sensing that that is beginning. Tyler Huntley played lights
out. It's too bad their offense couldn't finish drive due to dumb
penalties. That can be coached up, thought. Gay is a fantastic
kicker. And Mitch's punts are outstanding. That one punt that took the
perfect bounce, but barely over the line was a thing a beauty. Even if it was a
touchback by an inch or two. Utah is loaded. A new offensive system will
complete the team and they are trending in the right direction. Clean up
penalties and Utah's program will soar to new heights.
This was an exciting, weird and emotional game and I'm glad my Utes came
out of Provo with their 60th win in this great but incredibly lopsided series.
LES looked beautiful and the atmosphere was crackling with electricity. Coach
Sitake put an improved team on that field and even the vaunted U d line was a
bit gassed in the 4th. But as I predicted --they were the difference in this
game. For all of the sloppy plays on offense--Tyler Huntley was a gem. What an
arm! And what mature decision making. He is a flat out keeper. I'm thankful
to the Y for being good hosts and to the Utah players and fans who represented
their school so well. Good luck to the Utes against the Spartans next week and
I'm counting on a scrappy Cougar squad to bounce back and score an upset on
the Badgers. If you do, you'll get a big grin and a hearty thumbs up from
this Ute fan and you'll make our strength of schedule look even better.
That's something to play for right there!
blue and white: "All that dynamic play only scored 19 points and a 6 pt
win. The Y defense was great. The headline should be the Y offense improved but
not enough and more work is needed."Really? You're going
to start already with "it's a close score and we're almost as good
as you" again?Sorry, you were out-coached, outmanned and
outplayed. Utah penalties made it look close. Your defense, while decent, was
anything but great. And please, why, would anyone ever want to state in a
headline (or anywhere else) that your offense was improved? Utah
has very good coaches who will fix the penalty thing with the young players in a
new system. How is your "improved offense" going to beat Wisconsin?
What is wrong with our defensive secondary they give up way to much yardage in
the air ? The interior defense is solid. What to do about the offense? I
don't see much hope there. They are out of sync and don't seem very
motivated. Mangum sure gets a lot of his passes batted down and his number of
intercepts is unacceptable. I see more losses. Boise State, likely, Wisconsin
and Mississippi State for sure. Everyone else they may squeak by but there may
be a loss come out of these lesser football programs as well. I just watch
every week to see if they might get better not with any expectation that they
might win. It is a torturous condition to be in for a long time fan.
Utes keep driving while shooting themselves in the foot on BYU'S good D.
Low snaps, bad exchanges, and penalties killing big plays. If Utes clean
it up, they're really good! As stated, BYU offense sucks. Good luck
Cougs. Utes onward to a game that can clean it all up & then the real
fun begins in PAC12. #goutes
This is not complicated. The Utes are a better team with better players across
the board. BYU is simply not a top team. We recruit around #50, send most of
them on missions and then expect to beat the big boys? It s not going to happen.
BYU has for years been a team that picks off a Big 5 very occasionally but in
general gets beat by Big 5 and wins the majority of non Big 5. That's just
who we are. Good win Utes I hope you do well in the PAC! Let Mangum play out if
the gun to bring the O out of this funk. Cougar fans keep your expectations in
line with the reality of BYU recruiting and life will be much better.
Pretty ugly game at times. Huntley is becoming a true College Football Star. He
made the cougars look foolish and untalented at times. Byu's D is pretty
good, but after watching them in person, I see four more losses for this team.
Detmer looks very uncomfortable on the sidelines. Magnum had a good last drive
but he is turnover prone. Utes has tough schedule ahead with four teams in the
top 25. See ya next year at RES.
Have to laugh at the Utah fans who are showing quite a lack of class by some of
their salt in the wound comments. Better to just celebrate that you have a very
good team and an excellent program that is well coached and well funded! As for
BYU, your program is in serious trouble and this does not portend well for the
rest of the season. Many BYU fans like me are befuddled and are losing hope
fast that this program is ever going anywhere. It appears that we can't
attract the good athletes. Wow, time to find another team (like Oklahoma) to
root for. Go Sooners!
Ya'll can't even fill your stadium for your rival!End the
Huntley is the real deal. Mangum is not. Next?
It was a nice game by Utah. Congrats to the Utes
7, 8, 9, 10, 11...the streak will continue.Go Utes!
First paragraph succinctly summed up the game. Sloppy mistakes by Utah and a
punchless offense by BYU. Seems like these have become the respective
trademarks of Utah and BYU during the past several years. Hope they can both
overcome these nagging problems and have successful seasons.
All that dynamic play only scored 19 points and a 6 pt win. The Y defense was
great. The headline should be the Y offense improved but not enough and more
work is needed.
Can Cahoon coach? The receivers need serious help! Is the only way
to get the ball to Trinnaman to handoff to him? What happened to
the QB who was co-MVP of the Elite 11 and freshman QB of the year? Has Detmer
coached him down? Dropped passes by receivers don't help. Has
anyone been able to return one of Mitch W's kickoffs yet this year? And
his tackle of Trinnaman was a game saver, snuffing the life out of the Cougars.
AutoMATTic Gay is looking like a Groza candidate. Huntley is way better than Williams as both a runner and passer. Good choice
by the staff to go with him over Troy. He's dynamic; Mangum is so
pedestrian by comparison.Nice of the Utes to let the game be close
on the scoreboard, but was there ever really any doubt?
Enough talk of who is the better QB. It's Huntley and it's not
close.7 in a row.GO UTES!!
13 unanswered points?
Mangum, who led BYU to 13-unanswered points and had a game-winning drive attempt
in the last minute, had two receivers drop passes to spoil a last-ditch effort
to win. Utah 19, BYU 13.------------Putting lipstick on
a pig! LOL13-unanswered points? For BYU? The game was 16-0, then
16-6, then 19-16, then 19-13. Where was the 13-unanswered?one was
drop pass the other ball was batted down by a Ute defender.Utah
should have kicked a field goal, 22-6 game over. Instead they let BYU hang
around, BYU was LUCKY to be in the game.
I don't think Tanner is cut out for Ty's offense. Taysom Hill and
Jamal Williams papered over the problems last year with their ability to ad lib
with their running. Hopefully the coaches can find a way to modify the scheme to
fit their quarterback. Tanner is a good guy and its kind of tough watching
Utah dominated, but shot themselves in the foot and almost gave it away.Twice as many yards for Utah.
