I saw an outside chance at 8 wins at best this season AND I thought they might
lose to BYU on the Cougars home field, because of a young line and new
QB—and the strange nature of that rivalry. I thank these Seniors for
keeping things together after tough last second PAC 12 losses (and-let’s
admit it, some bad games against PAC 12 foes) that might have made other teams
give up on this season. To beat your rival (Buffs) and extend your streak over
BYU to seven games and become bowl eligible is not bad for a down year. If the
Utes win their bowl game, I’ll not complain (considering the value of
having bowl game practices) about this season that saw massive rebuilding and
our starting QB sidelined for much of the season. So much talent coming back.
This is really going to upset Max...who loves red Pepsi! Go Utes!
Great first half Utes! Your team deserves credit for not giving up on the year.
At the start of the year I projected a 5-7 season. It's now likely the
Utes end up with a 7-6 record the way Kyle W. prepares his teams for bowl games.
