The big difference in these two programs is that BSU is not an overrated
The biggest difference will come later tonight when Boise ends the season with a
win, and Utah is exposed as the pretender that they have been all season.
His statement at the end that inferred that Utah is superior because they were
invited to a BCS conference and BSU wasn't is idiotic. It has nothing to do with
the program and everything to do with the TV market. Salt Lake is a much better
TV market compared to Boise just like BSU is a much better team when compared to
No, Rock, here's where the two teams are the most different: BSU --
underrated U of U -- overrated.
Utah didn't get invited to the PAC 10 because their program is better. The
reason is what it always comes down to; MONEY !!!
Utah as pretenders... like when they pretend beat BYU this year? I guess 7-6
isn't pretend, is it?
sfo: Last time I checked the article was comparing BSU and Utah. What does their
win over BYU have to do with it?
Talk, talk talk. Let the boys on the field decide. Then let the loser just be
Are BYU fans really calling this Ute team overrated and pretenders?Let me remind you that in 2008...1) BYU was picked to with the
MWC, the 2010 Utah was not2) BYU was picked to be the next BCS
buster, in 2010 it was Boise and TCU3) BYU printed 50,000
"Perfection" t-shirts in the preseason, in 2010 Utah did no such thing
at 8-0With all that hype...0-12 Washington 27 10-3
BYU 287-6 CSU 42 BYU 45TCU 31 BYU 7Utah 48 BYU 24#50 7-5 Arizona 31#16 10-2 BYU 21So, if this 10-2 Ute is overrated then what was BYUs 2008 team?As far as Boise goes, they're no different then BYU playing in the WAC. Like
BYU they dominated the WAC as a one team conference.
UtetologyJust as the BYU team in 2008 was stunned to lose bad at
home to TCU, so was Utah. I think that BYU team underacheived after the loss to
TCU. Losing to Arizona was a bad way to end the season. However, 10-3 is 10-3
and most teams would love it. Utah 2010 is no better than BYU 2008 so I agree
with you there.
I don't like comparing teams that have not played each other yet; seems kind of
silly to me. If BSU wins tonight then they can say that they were the better
team this night and the same goes for Utah. Lets just hope that the game is well
played, officiated, and coached and when it is all over we can be gracious in
victory or defeat.
Another difference between Utah & Boise State: Boise State has won all the
head to head meetings. You can measure conference, NFL players, coaches, style
and all that, but on the field Boise has been superior in the all the head to
head games. Enough said.
