This team went from 2004/2008 comparisons to 2007 Ute team: playing uninspired,
penalty full ball. They're no better than a mediocre team.Wynn
looks clueless. The offensive line looks small. The defense looks slow. Two beat-downs and third one around the corner unless they fix the
sinking ship fast.Regardless, I will be watching next Saturday.Go UTES!!!
After Brad's last column (the one where he glorified the Utes and degraded Notre
Dame), I merely posted one thing on the message board. It was "ND 28 Utah
10." I guess I over estimated Utah's offensive offense, thinking that they
would put up at least one TD on the scoreboard.We're not too
impressed out here in Pac 10 country. In fact, there is a lot of grumbling going
on out here about how pathetic the two new additions are looking this year.
Maybe the regents of the Pac 10 wanted Washington State to have some company?
After BYU bottomed out against USU this year I never would've imagined 2 weeks
out from the Holy War BYU would be the clear favorite. And for my fellow Cougar
fans who questioned whether Wynn is a better QB than Heaps I respond with
Oh Wynn, if you don't know by now why the Utes struggled last week and this
week, you'll never know. Like the Demcrats today who refuse to acknowledge that
they lost the election because of their policies, the Utes lost yesterday and
against TCU because they were never really THAT good. This is the danger of
playing a creme puff schedule. But, I expect the Utes to right the ship when
they play SDSU. San Diego just lost a tough one against TCU, so this will be a
Boy, talk about the Emperor having no clothes! I would think BYU will be the
favorite against the Utes now...
California Man,Not to defend the Utes - they made Notre Dame look
like a good team yesterday. But who are you kidding about the PAC-10 and
whether or not you are impressed? The MWC has WORKED the PAC-10 for the past
several years. The PAC-10 is nothing and the conference's only power team -
Oregon - didn't look so hot against Cal last night. Don't give me this nonsense
about the PAC 10 not being impressed. The PAC 10 hasn't done anything in years.
(USC being the exception and we all see how THEY got it done.)
Ya think? 75-10 in the last two weeks is only a precursor of what is to come in
2011...next year isn't leap year either!
Coach Kyle says, "We were riding high, eight in a row, and now we've
dropped the last two ball games and right now we're not feeling real good about
ourselves," said Ute coach Kyle Whittingham. "But nobody feels sorry
for us."There in lies the answer to the problem, Coach. With
your cream puff schedule, and your invitation to the PAC for next year, plus
reading your own press clippings, you let yourself believe you were a lot better
than you are. 1. Pride goeth before destruction, and an
haughty spirit before a fall (Proverbs 16: 18).
Utes have a serious issue..... His name is Jordan Wynn, please put Cain in.
Time to give Cain a second look. He is more of a running threat, a senior with
a 9-1 career record as a starter. I think the team will play with more
confidence in its final two games of the regular season.
B,"The PAC 10 is nothing" Are you serious? Then why is it such
a "big deal" that yewtah is headed there? The PAC 10 has won more
NCAA Championships in all sports than any other conference by a long way.Oregon, USC, Cal, and Stanford would put similar beatings on yewtah this
year as did ND yesterday.Over-rated and underachieving yewtah will
be fortunate to win 1 of it's 2 remaining games.
@California ManUtah has finished in the top 5 twice in 10 years.I could be wrong but I can't recall anyone besides USC doing that.So either you are a bitter Cougar fan that your team was not voted into
the PAC 12 or PAC 10 fan who is more concerned about how good Utah's opponents
YOVERu: money, duh. Why is TDS going independent?
Maybe they should have left Cain at the starting QB position the way he played
while Wynn was out for two games. I know hind sight is 20/20. Just my 2 cents
Wynn in a post game interview "we need to make some changes to get back on
track", will that change is with Wynn. They are definately going to see
two more losses if they don't make a QB change, as a previous writer
"Uteolgoy" says he looked CLUELESS. San Diego state
definately is not an easier team that Notre Dame! COuld be an ugly end of the
season for the Ute boys! Go COugs, Cougs 35 Utes 21, mark it in the
books. Heaps lately looking like one of the best Freshman QB's in the country.
Props go out to the Ute faithful who attended the game.As someone
who attends a lot of ND games I can truthfully say I have never seen so many
opponent fans ( outside of traditional rivals) fill the stadium. I suspect up to
15% of the the stadium was red.To bad the team didn't show up.
Utah needs to put it together for this next week. SDSU has some serious
athletes. Their two receivers are the best in the in conference (better than
TCUs Boyce). They are tall, big, fast, and made fools of TCU DBs this last
week.I hope Utah pulls out a win, but if they expect to shut down
SDSU receivers with man coverage (without safety help), than it will be another
When Wynn has time, he can pick teams apart, but he tends to get rattled when he
is under pressure. He is somewhat of a head case. That will get better with
more maturity.Bronco is doing an amazing job getting his ship back
on track. I've got to think Kyle can do that, too. I've gone with Utah 2 weeks
in a row and have been burned for it. I am sad to say I'm picking them again
PAC is a good leauge with alot of parity this year. I expect Utah will be no
worse than an average PAC team and they have the potential to be one of the top
3 every year with the players they are recruiting and with their coach Utah is
still a good team and I expect coach Whitt to have their heads straight by
Saturday. The ND game was not a typical game for the 2010 Utes. I still think
they would have won that game if they had played it before the TCU game. They
beat AFA, Iowa State and Pittsburgh and deserve credit for those quality wins. 2
bad games does not ruin a season when you have played 8 good games. I still
expect Utah to end up with at least 10 wins and that is a very good season.
"Sometimes ignoring the scenery just isn't enough."Staring
at a fourth place finish in the MWC, maybe taking in the scenery would have been
a good idea."One game at a time."Just lose one
game at a time.===Uteology:@California Man"Utah has finished in the top 5 twice in 10 years."And... were ranked in the top 5 two weeks ago. And were one yard
away on the only TD they have scored in the past two weeks.What
makes this sooooooo very special is after the PAC invite the Ute all of a sudden
thought they were somebody.They didn't have to earn it, it would be
given them.All Kyle can talk about the past two weeks is how good
the other two teams are. How about looking in the mirror and seeing
where the Utes are lacking.There is a reason why Bronco is the
better coach. He sees a problem and fixes it.Kyle refuses to see the
problem.So even though Kyle doesn't come up with slogans (one game
at a time), fix Utah, and stop praising the other team.===Right on
B!PAC, and Utah, are a joke.
That was quite a heads up play for Wynn to slide a yard shy of the first down to
avoid picking up the first down.Three interceptions against was the
beginning of the end for Wynn. Bring on Cain.
@UteologyI think the offensive line has been performing well and has
only allowed a small number of sacks this year.I wonder if this is
the week that Kyle finally owns up and benches Wynn for Cain. I think he showed
some tremendous skill during the 2 week stint earlier in the season and will
wake things up offensively.
