Coach KW, kind sir? HA!OK, pal, who do you propose we replace him
with, blessed sir? Be specific, providing a viable alternative, w/ALL things
considered.....Be cautious, dear soul!Otherwise, it’s just yet
another in a long line of erroneous statements on your part, blessed soul!Cheers, MR!Goooooooo Utes!
Ute buster - Salt Lake City, UTNov. 6, 2018 10:02 a.m.Realute,The utes are not in the big time now. The pac is drifting into p5
irrelevance and if they have another 1-7 bowl season this year they will be
booted out of the so-called p5 altogether. Being the 3rd best team in the
state is not big time.-------Who said BYU is 3rd? You
currently sit 4th.Good luck at UMass, your last chance at making the
New Mexico bowl.

Let's hope the Utes has a good spare tire.
Defense deserves an F.Allowing 17 PPG, they were lit up for 38 at
ASU.Our defense had no pressure on the QB, couldn't tackle,
couldn't stop the run or the passing game. It was the worst defensive
performance of the season.Looking forward to seeing how a
Scully/Anderson lead defense responds against Oregon.
@worf - there are zero Utah fans calling for Kyle to be fired. RealUte is no
mor a Utah fan than I would be a BYU fan if I posted as RealCoug.It
is interesting that several Y fans disappeared for a month but suddenly had
something to say when Utah finally loses. The team got out played by a solid
PAC 12 opponent. Just like I would wager that a rematch today between Arizona
and BYU would have a very different outcome from what we saw early in the
Hawk- "What happened after the Covey muffed punt?"There were
two penalties. 5 yard procedure penalty on ASU and 15 yard personal foul on
Utah. These penalties both were enforced, which yielded 10 yards for ASU and
gave them enough for first down, and so they didn't need to punt again.This games was similar to the first 4 games, in which Utah shot
themselves in the foot with stupid penalties and dropped balls. It was a comedy
of errors again, and like in the beginning of the year, the o-line played awful.
The o-line played great in the first half, but couldn't run block and
especially could not pass block. I watched our center let their nose guard just
run right past him several times with no resistance. As this article points out
our D was horrible. Chase and Cody both have been stellar this year, but they
were not filling open gaps, they would instead run right behind a d tackle and
bump into them. I was shocked, because they both are outstanding linebackers,
but both played poorly.Whittingham is an excellent coach, and sad to
see some fair weather fans want his departure. He has built a very solid
program, that is a perennial top 25 program. Go Utes, and make us proud!
What happened after the Covey muffed punt? I saw it was called back for illegal
motion, but I walked away for one minute and ASU had the ball back. I was
trying to follow the commentary -- was it an unsportsmanlike conduct call on
covey for taunting?
@ Worf,Thanks for posting that. Donald Trump speaks volumes
worldwide and he would be a perfect coach for BYU as you proudly stated! Thank
you, kind sir.
JSKM1232 - “The Utes will win TWO more games in the season. “Sure, just like they were a lock to beat ASU and hang a Rose Bowl
Real Ute - Dallas, TXNov. 5, 2018 12:49 p.m.“I hope Utah AD
Mark Harlan tells Whittingham to walk.”That would be a huge
mistake and result in the Utes crashing into a prolonged rebuilding mode similar
to what happened to Utah’s basketball program when Majerus left.
My prediction came true.I said if Utah would lose. Some of their
fans would want Whittingham fired. I made a similar prediction for
BYU.Sorry folks! But you don't build stability by constantly
changing your coaches.One exception! Donald Trump would be a great
coach. Make the Cougars or Utes great again!With Obama, you can
keep your coaches, game plans, and ticket prices will go down twenty five
The "D" grade is very fair. Kyle Whittingham needs to be a DC in the
NFL. I'm tired of his "SIMPLE" song-n-dance. You are at a real
school KWhitt! Intelligence matters, sir!

I hope Utah AD Mark Harlan tells Whittingham to walk. Utah has great coaches
other than him. I'd like to see KWhitt as a DC in the NFL, where he
belongs. Utah is in the big time now and KWhitt is not an intellect in any

Andersen's kids are usually very sound fundamentally up front, but, as the
video clip shows clearly on the Benjamin touchdown run, Pututau attacks the A
gap (his gap), but then allows himself to be turned inside. Even bigger surprise
and failure is how poorly an experienced backer like Barton fits the B gap
allowing the tackle to get into him and turn him outside. Football 101 folks.
Maybe they were just tired, but this is just a fundamental breakdown resulting
in a two gap hole and easy touchdown.Another clip here perfectly
illustrates the folly of sitting in man cover on Harry with no help inside.
Utes' corner doesn't even take inside leverage on Harry...might as
well not bother and just concede the touchdown. This one is most likely on the
Of course the wheels came off - it's November. Herm Edwards took
Whittingham to the woodshed. Herm Edwards is the best coach in the Pac-12.
