Some days, things don't go well. TCU looks to be a very good team. Whittingham
is a good coach.
We're with the Utes in good times and tough times. A new win streak begins next
That's sad and that picture is even worse. What was to be the
'greatest moment in Utah football history' is now the biggest goose egg.Wow, who ever said 'the bigger they are (in their minds), the harder
they fall' was right. Hype is one thing but this baby was whipped to a frenzy
and this cake just fell flat in the oven.Last week was a word of
warning and this week we see the reality. Next year ain't going be to any
better.Well for sure better quality teams will not hurt the Utes
next year but the reality is that it won't be a 'cupcake' walk either. Curb that
enthusiasm or rather the hype, it can blow up on you and make a real mess, like
Whatever we do from here on, Beat that TDS!
Kyle Whittingham is a class act and a great coach. He owns up when there is a
problem and makes the needed corrections. When he played for the Y, he was the
leader of the defense and a big reason we had so much success. Utah is very,
very lucky to have him.
TCU was amazing. Sorry Utes. Pick up the pieces, watch the game films and figure
it out. Then come out next time and get back on that winning streak. Some days
all the parts just don't fit together right, and apparently today was one of
Coach Whittingham,You have nothing to apologize for. Your schedule
is what it is, and you haven't been challenged yet. but Utah is a good team.
Just not a #5 team.You have outcoached many coaches, but sometimes
the players have to do what they can within the limits of their own physical
abilities.You made good decisions today. ==The good
days, they come around, but they never seem to last. Then the bad days... They
come around, and kick the good days, right to the curb.Keep it up
coach. You have built a respected program. This memory will fade.Thanks for all the good memories that are there.Your efforts are
I would apologize too. That was embarrassing. Made Utah football look
Wow did these ute players go out and make the state of utah look sooooo bad. Kyle is a great coach. Wynn is average at best.Booing ute
fans are really just Y haters.What a bunch of classless fans the U has.Watching their faces on TV was sooo great.How does that one taste
Yes sammy g is enjoying rubbing in the loss, but I also see two positive and
very classy comments from byu fans about utah, even after this embarassing
loss.I wonder how the comments will play out next time byu loses and
HatedUYou called Ute fans classless in the middle of that post? You are no
better than they are. Most Ute fans have class. There are a few who post on
these articles that are on your level.Whittingham is a class act and I
would love to see him at BYU again someday. Bronco doesn't want to coach another
19 years and I hope he gets the AD job and goes after Whitt. I doubt they would
get him because Utah knows what they have and Whitt loves it there. Grow
Tough loss to a seemingly great TCU team. I hope that a road win against a
strong Utah team will generate a few more first place votes.As a BIG
BYU fan I have been impressed with Utah's season and this loss is a setback, but
a victory next week against Notre Dame and then another against San Diego State
will setup a final MWC loss to BYU.Here's my future dream for the
breakup of BCS and a national cry for playoffs. Utah wins the PAC-12 finishing
the season with one loss and playing in the Rose Bowl. Boise State winning the
MWC undefeated and playing in the Fiesta Bowl. TCU going undefeated and playing
for the national championship angainst an undefeated indepedent BYU and of
course BYU winning 57-0.That should get everybody's attention.It's just mindgames.
Tough loss. I've got to say that I really dislike it when fans boo
their own team like that. This kids don't get paid to play. They want the win at
least as much as any fan in the stands. They are giving everything they have out
there and then they get booed? Haven't been to any BYU games this
year, but I hope that no one is booing them. I look forward to the
annual rivalry game.
Even BYU (with the horrible year they've had) only allowed TCU to post 31 points
on them.. and it was an away game. What gives Utes? You lead us to believe
that you were better than this.
Y fans are going to come out in force because misery loves company and they are
having a miserable season. Ya, Utah got rocked yesterday by a great TCU team.
But I'll take 8-1 with the 1 loss to the 3rd ranked team in the country than 4-5
record right now. BYU will be 6-6 at best and sitting home during the holidays
watching the U extend their bowl game win streak. Whittingham is a great coach
and we'll support you all the way!!!
No surprise of the blowout. Utah's #5 ranking was very generous and the TCU
blowout discredits the program...much like BYU's #7 ranking last year before the
FSU loss. However it looks like the BYU vs Utah game this year is going to be
competitive after all! And Whittingham is a great coach and I don't think the U
has enough money to hold him with programs like Tennessee lurking. Heck, BYU
ought to demote Mendenhall to DC and hire Whittingham as HC.
I am no Ute fan, but what does Kyle have to apologize about. The man is an
excellent coach. How many times of our Cougs been on both sides of a "rolling
game". Some days, just nothing goes right. I just hope TCU gets its chance to
play for the National Title. I think they are "that good."
Any team would be ecstatic to go 11-1 (yes we will win out). I am a UTAH fan and
will cheer them on through thick and thin. The uniforms and the support of the
Wounded Warrior Project is awesome. Put this game behind you and take care of
business the rest of the season. All the pressure is off.
Fix it Kyle. End it strong. That was embarassing to team, university, the fans
and Pac 10. You did not have the guys prepared 2 weeks in a row.
I really like Coach Whitt and wish him the best. Utah is lucky to have him and
better do whatever it takes to keep him. Besides, he's a Y alum.
HatedU, TJ is right, you are not better than they are. As the saying goes,
"hate breeds hate..." Be the difference maker from other bad Utah fans and
don't kick the dog when he is down, that would make you a much better BYU fan
who I would respect than a bad Utah fan!
Could this be a taste of things to come when the Mights Utes change to the
Conference of Champions? To all the ute-trolls out there, what happened to a
huge win and on to the National Championship? I guess it will remain in the
National Championship win column BYU =1 and Utah = 0.Good luck with
trying to get there while in the Conference of Champions. NOT!Where
have all the Ute-trolls gone? Gone to hide under rocks. I predict that there
won't be too many of them at work this whole next week. They will be in their
parents basements crying in their pillows and not wanting to face the world.
Coach Whit is a class act. TCU is just a better team than everyone expected.
Rather than criticize the utes, hats off to TCU and Gary Patterson.
Kyle is great! He ranks with all the high-class coaches there have ever been.
But his team this year built an eight-one record on a house of cards in a
desperate attempt to get to the BCS another time before leaving home to go live
in the cold, hard world. Obviously the team is far from being the one that beat
Alabama in 2008. Coach said the game wasn't as close as the score
would make it appear. Well, the 8-1 season record so far makes the team look
twice as good as it is. Going to the PAC-12 will make the Utes long for the
"good old days," and the "automatic-qualifier" status won't seem nearly so
Kyle Whittingham is a stud. Jordan Wynn is mediocre and the team has played a
bunch of cupcakes. They were exposed plain and simple to be imposters of a top
5 team. They should fall to the 15-20 range, but even that won't last.
He doesn't need to apologize about the embarrassing home loss while being more
concerned about using other schools traditions. He should be more concerned
about BYU playing better at tcu and that now they have REAL competition coming
Vegas would select BYU over utah, that'd be funny to see that happen again.
I wouldn't apologize to fans who boo college kids. I wasn't at this game, but it
really saddens me because I used to be so proud to sit in RES among real Utah
fans. Not only was our team exposed a bit, but the nation saw the worst of our
fans and they really seemed like fans who didn't deserve a top 5 team. Came out
in force, yes---but they booed their own COLLEGE players and specifically
targeted Jordan Wynn. If this kid were to despise Utah fans for the rest of his
life, I wouldn't blame him.
Hey ute fans, the buffet at the mgm is pretty good.
Ultimately how the team peforms falls on Kyle. No need to apolgize in my mind
though, it's football. Everyone has a bad day. Are the Utes
over-rated? Most definitely. Was it an embarrasing loss? Oooh how it was. Will
Kwitt have his team ready to play next week? You bet!As I said
earlier in the week. If we lose this game, the Utes will congradulate TCU and
bow out to let them take care of business and represent in the BCS. They are for
real!Go frogs and take to the BCS again!Go Utes and finish out
the season strong! You can still take your frustration out on byu.
The fans are the ones that should be apologizing.
The grass isn't always greener. Top to bottom the the PWAC10 is only better
than the MWC because of UNLV, UNM and WYO. (three rotate in and out of being
pathetic) The top of the other conference is no better IN THE LEAST than the
top of the MWC and really the middle isn't either. Please don't show me
rankings lest I remind you of Utah's ranking last week. Utah will do
extremely well in an extremely overrated conference next year. Honestly I
was rooting for them in the back of my mind if not so the cougs could be the
ones to expose them - and knock them out of a Natty Championship game. Oh well.
I guess we'll have to wait our turn.Bronco's the man.
I wanted Utah to win this game until Saturday morning and the Gameday crew
started talking about Boise St. and U fans began the "overrated" chant. How
stupid of you.
I support our fantastic team win or lose.
@ HatedU You calling Ute fans classless? You're on a Ute article to
rub it in our faces! I guess you would know what classless is...
I am always get a little sad that Whitt didn't want to coach for the us at the
Y. He's an awesome coach building a consistent program.Chins up,
When Whitt said they wouldnt be watching the airforce game film I knew we would
be in big trouble.AF exposed our weak secondary that let big plays go like
candy on Halloween. I guarantee TCU watched that film and were licking their
chops. They burned us in the passing game on those same routes that AF did.
Against AF we just got lucky our players pulled the ball out twice so we didn't
pay for itNo such luck against TCU. Infact we had nothing going for
us at all that game. Our big playmakers all had their worst games of the
season.We didn't even play our own game at all. When the passes were open
we dropped them or threw bad passes that was all us and something we could have
done better.Fans its never ok to BOO your own team. Thats what posers
do.Humble pie force fed to us... CheckMove one Learn and put this
behind us.We beat all the same teams pretty much as bad as TCU did we just
didn't take care of business when it really was on the line....
We could have had a fight against TCU had we shown up mentally.I saw heads
down and feet dragging before half time.Thats something I never saw in
08Wynn struggled ok, pull him put in Cain get some momentumLet Wynn
get his composure watching Cain be successful making the TCU account for his
ability with his feet and making throws on the run. Then let him get back in and
play the way we know he can.I also was dissapointed in the play calling.
Absolutely no creativity.Where was the flea flicker? A reverse?
Some kind of misdirection? A 4-2 fake punt. We were down and never took the
initiative to rip the momentum back to our side.Nothing ventured nothing
gained.Anyway we have 3 more games to prepare for before the season
is over.Take out the frustration on ND and make a statement out of
them.Rrip them a new one and have the D shut them out.Repeat on SDSU
and BYUNo matter what happens I will be a ute fan foreverGO
My only wish is that this loss would have banished hedgie, Chris B, Otis and
Ernest as fast as it has NC Utes 2010. Man it's like that person never
existed.I don't have a problem with Coach Whitt, He is a quality
coach. He just got beat by a way better team.
