Playing the Panthers in the Fiesta Bowl -- GREAT!Playing the
#3-ranked Pitt on the road in the first ever nationally televised college
football game on ESPN -- PRICELESS!
This could be a big year. KW needs to keep the team focused and pound Pitt like
they did in 2005. It's not just about winning, Utah needs to come out a send a
message.TCU, Boise, and BYU can also send a powerful message in week
one to the BcS cartel.I am looking forward to seeing how KW has
built his defence this year.Go Utes!!!
This BYU fan wishes you the best.
A "wynn" at home vs 15th-ranked Pitts is obviously very important for Utah
to start the season. Utes can do it!!!
@BYU84That is the same team Pitt team that went 3-7. BYU did do what only
5 other teams were able to do that year - beat Michigan. Don't forget, BYU
didn't win the national championship, they were awarded it.
"Playing the #3-ranked Pitt on the road in the first ever nationally televised
college football game on ESPN -- PRICELESS!"BYU84,Unable to accept that- the Panthers offense scored 178 points while the
defense allowed 247 points for the season. At season’s end, the Panthers
were not ranked in the National Polls. The Panthers had their first losing
season since 1972 - DELUSIONAL!
I remember drones of BYU fans putting on their Utah gear and making the trip
down to Tempe. In a way, that showed really good instincts from Cougar fans.
They apparently knew that tagging along with the Utes to a BCS game would be
their only opportunity to ever experience one.Props to the Cougar
fans who had the forsight to see their own mediocrity five years ago.
Live in the now.
byu84It's time to get back into the hottub time machine and get back
to this century. When you get back, you will realize that Utah is going to the
PAC and byu has gone to the WCC. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHI know it's scary and
it's not a nightmare, it's reality.You might want to worry about USU
in Logan though.
utahcountyutedoesn't know his conferences. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
bob? You heard of the West Coast Conference? Gonzaga...St Mary's? I know, the
rumors change every day, it's hard to keep up. The West Coast
Conference along with "Idependence" in football would actually be a pretty good
move for byu if they could schedule enough games. I'm sure Holmoe won't get that
done though. So it would be more like Utah in the PAC and byu playing 5 or 6 WAC
teams each year. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA I am so glad the Utes can focus on
Pitt this week!
Why do people make the comment that Pitt fell out of the polls the year they
played BYU. Can BYU control how they play the remainder of their games? When U go out and beat Pitt on Thu, and if they stink the rest of the
way, not much you can do. You beat'em when they were ranked, that's all that can
Too bad the U can't get the 2005 team to come back....Pitt will dominate
Agree with the poster above...BYU did not win the NC in 1984, it was given
to Lavell for his achievments at BYU in the previous decade...1984 BYU
team did not play any impressive teams that year.
@williaryThe BYU fans I know do cheer on the Utes. You represent our
state and (at least one more year) our conference. We also cheer on the other
Utah schools and the other MWC schools. The fact that you can't wrap your head
around that speaks volumes about you.
Can't wait for Thursday!I'm looking forward to not only a great
season, but the last time competing in the MWC!!Keep those bitter
comments coming coog fans - your jealous tears taste so sweet.Go
@dakuwaqa"Why do people make the comment that Pitt fell out of the
polls the year they played BYU. Can BYU control how they play the remainder of
their games? "Because you claim it as beating a top five team,
when in reality, you beat a poor team. Its good to say, "we beat this
team who FINISHED the year ranked #7."Thats why the 08 utes were
more impressive than the 84 cougars IMO. The utes beat two teams who FINISHED
in the top 10, not preseason top 10. Clearly, Pitt was not a top 10 team that
year and yet BYU fans claim it as such. Oh well, whatever makes you
feel good. I personally dont care.
@Big_Ben, in ether case, neither organization can control the performance of our
opponents. All you can do is beat the teams that you line up and play against.
Rankings have always been a popularity contest. Best of luck on Thu.
re: fresnogirlYou, and apparently every BYU fan you know, are truly
an annomally. If you need evidence of that just click through recent Utah/BYU
articles on this website and read the comments section. That fact
that you live in a world of rainbows and unicorns where everyone skips together
holding hands speaks volumes about you. Step into reality. This isn't little
@williary | 3:15 p.m. Aug. 31, 2010I am with fresnogirl in cheering
for fellow conference and, in particular, in-state schools.Fortunately, the real world isn't zero-sum (you need to lose for me to win).
It may not be all rainbows and unicorns, but it is Utes, Cougars, Horned Frogs,
Falcons, Rams, Lobos, Aztecs, Rebels, and Cowboys.
fresnogirl | 1:19 p.m. Aug. 31, 2010 The BYU fans I know do cheer on
the Utes. -----------I guess you don't know Max Hall.
Nope. Don't know Max Hall personally not do I believe he was ever elected as our
I suppose that discounts the 2004 BCS win then since Pitt dropped out of the
coaches poll and barely hung onto be ranked 25th in AP.
There is no need to discount anybody's great performances or the circumstances
that fell into place for them.Is there anybody out who was not
cheering for the Utes in the unbelievable 1st quarter against Alabama?Was everybody sitting on their hands when the Oklahoma field goal missed?Didn't we all cheer the hook and lateral by Boise State against
Oklahoma?If you've lived in the WAC or the MWC or both for very
long, you live for these moments. Isn't it great that our good teams take it
out on the national bullies?What a great decade!
Go Utes!We will be there in full support. Can't wait.
Yep, I afraid Pitt will set us up for an epic fail season and it will continue
through the next decade.
Just my luck, I move from Pittsburgh back to SLC and the first Utes game is
against Pitt. The football gods are funny. I would be lying if I said Pitt
doesnt worry me, they have an awesome RB. I have heard our front 4 on D will be
something special this year. I cant wait to see us stuff Pitt's running game.
Hey Picksey, yinz are going down n@! That's Pittsburgh speak for all the Utahns.
Let's see how good Utah really think they are.
