Despite back-to-back losses, AFA commands full respect from Utes
"'There is not a more disciplined, more mentally tough team in the country than
the Falcons,' said Utah coach Kyle Whittingham."This is the reason
we will win the game Saturday. Coach Whitt will always keep the team grounded.
Really looking forward to watching the game. I really wish the best
for coach Calhoun and the Falcons. What a class organization and coach.
Unfortunately, they have to play the Utes on Saturday. If, by chance, they do
win on Saturday, I will be the first in line to congratulate Coach Calhoun.
Otherwise.....Go Utes! Go Crimson! On to win #8 at Air Force!
Of course they lead the nation in rushing, that's all they do is rush the ball
90% of the time. I have a lot of respect for Calhoun and the AF academy, but I
hope the Utes destroy them. Go Utes!
Props to Calhoun for running such a disciplined and tough team, he's much like
coach Whitt in that he doesn't look past opponents and gives respect where it is
due. I do think he is trying to make the Utes overconfident with his "they are
the best Ute team ever" comment. The Utes won't get a big head, they learned
their lesson at Wyoming. I hope they come out swinging, have a great second
quarter again and roll over AFA and bid another MWC foe a crushing farewell. GO
As a former member of the US Air Force, and a Cougar fan, I have multiple
reasons to cheer for the Falcons this weekend. Go Falcons!!!!!
how many times U came close losing to AFA? So close and so many times. Maybe it
is AFA time. Go gettem cadets.
Live Hard !!! Why don't you place your money on some other good bets...
Democrats remain in control of the House, The Utah Jazz win the NBA
Championship, Nancy Polosi says no to a new spending Bill. Barney Frank goes
straight, A BYU fan swears off caffeine laced Diet Coke.
We will be there cheering on our Utes! But boy, it's hard to root against Air
Force. There are no words that describe the class and honor that school has.
My hat's off to them and I will miss Utah being associated with that fine
Air Force is the classiest team we will face all year. It's too bad our little
sisters down south haven't been able to learn from Air Force. Final score:Utes 42Falcons 17Remember, you heard it first
from Uncle Spurlock.
The D will have their hands full with AFA for sure! I
always appreciate what the cadets do and the class they bring to the field, but
the Utes gotta take care of business. Utes by 14.Go Utes, one game
at a time!
I love this game. Every year it's one of the best on the Utes' schedule and they
get a chance to show what they're made of. However, I think this year will be a
little bit different because not only do the Utes have a fast, strong defense as
usual, but they have a dynamic, explosive offense as well. Utes will take it by
at least three touchdowns.GO UTES!!!
This will be a fun game to watch. Utah really does have to watch the turnovers
though. If AFA gets a lead, any turnover could seal the Utes fate. Utah will have to get ahead early. And dont expect AFA to make the same
mistake they did at TCU by not going for it on 4th and 1s. The Ute D will be
tested even more than the TCU D was. I was a little aggresive in
expecting 49 from the utes, but too late, my prediction is out. (I wanted to
adjust down to 35, even with the falcons missing Tew).
Otis,Utah fan today? That's odd. You seem to switch a lot.
Sometimes you're a byu fan on these boards. And you talk of class? Hilarious.
Max is great. I do think the yewties will cruise Saturday. Even to
this cougar, it's clear the yewts are legit this year.
All we hear is how tough and disciplined AF is. They have done nothing but beat
some patsies. Very little respect to Utah. Whit will have them prepared. TCU
exposed them bad and they gave up quickly. Take it to them! Go Utes!
Both great programs, great players and coaches. This will be fun!!! Good luck
to both teams!
