Marked it Down - Park City, UTSept. 10, 2018 12:16 p.m.Fans hoping
that Utah will simply be able to flip a switch and suddenly be able to play toe
to toe with Washington after struggling mightily against a weak Northern
Illinois team are only fooling themselves.-----It's
a fact that Utah plays down to its opponents level.Like in 2014:3-9 Washington State 28Utah 27 at RESNext week: Utah
30 at #10 10-3 UCLA 28Or 2016, beat #3 USC then play down to 5-7 Cal
UteinIdaho - Sandpoint, IDSept. 9, 2018 6:56 p.m.The fact is, Utah,
under Whittingham, almost always plays to the level of their opponent.
That's why last night was such an ugly dog fight, and why next Saturday
will be a dog fight down to the wire, and Utah could win it. It's just the
Whittingham way, and it's never going to change.-----I hope so. I hope NIU was the 4-8 Oregon or 5-7 Cal game that we unexpectedly
"choke". While the same team is able to beat #3 USC.I still
have some major concerns about the OL and Huntley calling is own number rather
than handing it off to Moss, but I think KW will have the team ready to play
against Washington.Go UTES!
Utah has a great team I think we should probably have a good game against
Washington . That being said I think The game on Saturday night showed us that
winning against Washington is not likely
@Marked it Down - Park City, UTI agree with you to an extent but
it's football and teams can improve. UW was only beating North
Dakota 17-0 at half and 24-3 at the end of 3. Browning was picked off twice in
that game. Utah is talented they just need to gel some. And many
of the mistakes are definitely fixable. I'll bet this is a
very close game and that Utah has a chance to win at the end. Let's hope
it goes our way.

@Juice BoxAt this point I'd be happy with a first down on an
I suppose that at least they recognize they need to improve. How
many holding penalties do linemen get before the sit out? How many sacks do they
get to allow? Some times you need to pull a guy out of the game to make a point.
The O-line needs some real improvement. Receivers need to
catch anything they get their hands on every time. No excuses. Defense looked pretty good but we will need them to score every game if we
want to win.
Not to worried about this team. For what ever the reason, they play up and down
to their competition. I think we will see a better effort on Saturday.
All I want for Christmas this year is for Utah to score on the opening drive on
one game. That's all I ask.
I don't want to hear anymore garbage about limiting hits on Huntley. Rather
it's designed runs or letting Huntley go RPO wild on his own, Utah needs to
stop this madness or bench Huntley. I would say just let Huntley do
his thing and risk getting hurt but it's just not effective football
anymore. Defenses have taken it away. Huntley getting more carries than Moss is
a joke. Moss was more effective when he knew he was getting the ball with Troy
Williams at QB. RPO football makes it harder for a line trying to come together.
And when Moss is sent running out wide where he got hurt last night
is dumb. Moss is a North and South bruiser. His speed is better going down hill
and hitting the hole. Trying to use him turning the corner on the edge is
ignorant on the coaching staff. No matter what talent Utah gets,
Whitt's teams have NEVER had a consistent offense.
I believe in the Utes...they have deep talent and lots of weapons. It's
always a dog fight, get used to it, that will never change in football. Each
and every game is never over until the clock hits zero. Get used to it people,
it's not a cake walk. Got Utes and make use proud!
