@Real Ute - You are a true fan. Never mind the facts. The facts are these: Utah
has not finished in the first division of the PAC12 conference a single time.
BYU regularly beats Utah in all sports other than football and women's
gymnastics.I noticed in this year's schedule that Utah's
other OOC games were against small colleges. BYU is the only prestigious
non-conference game you play. Go ahead and drop the game. BYU will continue to
progress while Utah struggles to be noticed in the PAC12. Consider AZ, ASU, WSU,
OSU. All good PAC12 members, who have a good year every decade or two.BYU plays nationally against the best teams. They play anybody. You want to
hide in the PAC12 doldrums. Go ahead. Personally, I don't care whether BYU
plays Utah at all. I don't see much to gain from BYU's perspective.
BYU can fill that slot with Alabama or somebody good.
"even if we play a perfect mistake free game we'll still lose by at
least 20 points. And we're not going to play a mistake free"I certainly don't think BYU wins this game - but BYU has actually taken
down bigger opponents than Wisconsin.I agree, we probably lose by 20
points.BYU has a good front D against the run, Wisconsin has an
amazing OL so the secondary will need to be on point, but against New Mexico
they put up 150 passing yards to 450 rushing, if they stay so unbalanced against
BYU then BYU has a chance until BYU's defense get's tired of being
shoved around by the offense.However, if the BYU offense that showed
up during Arizona's 3rd quarter comes out, they'll get enough points
on the board to potentially make it interesting.I've seen BYU
beat #3 and #1 as well as other top 10 teams and ranked teams - and while
we're missing those glorious wins recently, it's not impossible. Then
again, 1984, 1990, 2009 - 2018 would be nice, probably not going to happen - but
never say never, maybe we're in for that once in a blue moon - what will it
mean - that sometimes BYU wins games that it shouldn't win and
unfortunately more often BYU loses games it should win.
I've said it before and I'll post it again but BYU is going to win
this weekend. I've already made a friendly wager and I'm about to come
into some Rolex bling for my wrist and solo trumpet lessons the world renown
professor promises to teach me the cougar fight song and then we'll talk
about photography!!I can't believe I'm going to win all of that
because byu will beat Wisconsin! You heard it from me here first the only
one saying itBatman! Byu wins byu wins!!!
I'm as blue as they come, but even if we play a perfect mistake free game
we'll still lose by at least 20 points. And we're not going to play a
mistake free father. My prediction:Wisconsin 55BYU 12
Honestly, I cannot think of one thing that Deputy Sitake offers to a D1 athlete
as a coach. He is in so over his head in everything........ He was hired by BYU
as HC because he was the only person that could or would accept that position.
Here's an even better idea: don't make the mistakes in the first
place!!! Failure is not an option!!!!
I wonder if Kalani could envision kicking the two field goals that were there
for the taking...you know, six points vs the final three point margin...
I respect most real BYU fans. I hope that the new Utah AD Mark Harlan will take
BYU off of all Utah sports schedules. Buy them out and be done with them. Utah
is a state school, as is USU, Weber State and the others. I wanna see my Utes
play our real football rival Utah State, "our brothers." BYU was our
longtime basketball rival is all.
@ Snack PAC,I was born a Ute, a Utah grad, and I say this to you as
an old man, kinda....... I feel fortunate that that the U was invited to the
PAC. It is a great school. I learned important facts there that helped me
compete in this vast world. Now, I get to see great teams in the best conference
in the world compete against Utah. All I can say......."I really enjoy
it." Is that okay by you?
@estreetshuffle,Hyperbole on the internet about BYU doesn't
mean anything. The U of U is in the big time because it is a top-notch school in
all ways.What is this "BYU legacy" that you speak of? Are
you talking about the obscure old WAC athletic days, or BYU as a school?Would it work for you if the U cancels BYU on every schedule? I see no
merit playing BYU ever again.
@Real Ute: But, But .....But, When one searches the internet for the dominant
school in Utah, its the one with the legacy and that's BYU. This is coming
from an ASU, Arizona fan. Sorry to have to equalize. It's nice to have
Utah as a fellow bottom of the barrel brother with us ASU and Arizona fans in
Real Ute“Why do you comment about Utah? We play in the
PAC.”Why do you beat your chest about being “in the
PAC”, when you’ve never accomplished anything of significance in the
PAC?BYU, and Utah, accomplished FAR more in the MWC, than the Utes
have accomplished in the PAC.Given the monetary and recruiting
advantages of being in the PAC, BYU would have accomplished far more than you
@ Snack PAC,Why do you comment about Utah? We play in the PAC. You
folks do not. And, BYU is no competition for Utah in football, hasn't been
for a decade, or will be ever again. Your team is already off, and won't be
considered in our future schedules after 2022 according to new Utah AD Mark
Harlan......thankfully!!!! We Utes love being in the PAC! We get to enjoy great
games every year. Football is VERY entertaining to us. BYU is not
"entertaining" at the D1 level in college football. You keep your chin
Pipes“When you lack talent both in players and coaching, fluff
is all that you have left.”Which explains why Utah has never,
and will never, win a PAC 12 championship.The Utes barely escaped
losing to a MAC team.
I'd like to see Mangum get in the faces of his receivers when they screw up
instead of just running over to sit quietly on the bench like he's
contemplating his future as an insurance salesman or accountant. Be a leader,
show some fire and passion!
Good luck BYU! You have serious competition coming to Provo. USU and NIU will
most likely dominate the Y............then the U of Hawaii and their unreal QB
Cole McDonald and his dangerous playmakers will show up too......I hope
y'all are ready Y fans.....
Who is BYU going to be able to hire as a head coach? Sitake was a
"rah-rah" DC at Utah, but Utah's D is all KWhitt, always has been.
Sitake doesn't know what to do. Look at BYU......it isn't going
Since Cougars train at approximately 5000 feet altitude, maybe they should use
the no-huddle offense. Additionally, isn't Tanner Mangum used to the no
huddle? Then again I don't know.
When you lack talent both in players and coaching, fluff is all that you have
left. How about getting creative on offense or aggressive on defense?
That's what a good coach does. Instead we get mindless rhetoric and
