This article is certainly the type of national attention a program wants. This
really ought to bring in the recruits.
The media is doing a great job of overlooking the fact that our three losses
have come at the hands of three of the best teams in the conference. They each
have only 3 losses and USC only loss was to one of the other 3, ASU. Did
anybody realistically think we would beat 3 of the best in our conference in the
first year? The only one of these three teams I thought we could beat before
the season started was Washington, but they are proving to be better than anyone
predicted. Coach Witt is right on in saying we aren't that far off. I believe
we will see some reasonable success through the rest of the season.Duckhunter, what has happened to all that talent the media said you guys had
two years ago. This is the second season with virtually the same talent on both
sides of the ball and your players are stinking it up. When your OC admits the
players can't execute the plays he's designed, that's a clear indication a lot
of people over-estimated the talent level. Good luck upgrading that talent with
Idaho and Idaho State on your schedule.
I think that the USC and BYU games gave many Utah fans false expectations for
what this season was going to be like.
@mormon uteBYU has nothing to do with your teams failures but if it
helps you feel better to deflect the conversation that direction then do what
you need to. In the meantime there will be no pac10 championship
game, no rose bowl, no bowl game of any sort more than likely, and no batch of
top level recruits waiting to sign on with the utes. I admire your upbeat
attitude but sadly reality is beginning to kick you in the teeth and eventually
even you will break. I feel badly for you but there are enough utah
"fans" like chris b, hedgehog, howard s, and
kostacoolguyduckhunterrarticunohondo around that the pleasure I get from seeing
this crash down more than offsets the pity I feel for the guys like you.Life's tough sometimes.
Duckhunter, you must have an extremely short memory. Otherwise, I can't imagine
how you can talk so much smack about the team that destroyed the cougarettes
54-10. However bad you may think Utah is, BYU is obviously much worse.
Duckhunter, you really are insufferable. Do you have to post on every single
Ducky, Either you are paid to make up and spew your skewed nonsense (Rush
Limbaugh/James Carville) or somewhere in your past you think you were terribly
wronged or mistreated by the U. As so aptly described above, you really are
Mormon Ute,"our three losses have come at the hands of three of
the best teams in the conference."Seriously? Utah's losses have all been at the hands of good teams. But saying they are
the best in the PAC-12 is some serious spin.So far Utah is 0-3 in the
PAC-12 and they are fortunate to avoid the 2 best teams in the conference. #7
Stanford and #9 Oregon.I think Utah will finish 5-4 in conference
play. But it could easily be worse with Wynn out for the season.
R.A.W: I don't think Mormon Ute was claiming they are the three best teams in
the conference, just three of the best. Certainly Oregon and Stanford are the
two best right now, and you're right, we're fortunate not to play them. But next
to those two, ASU is probably next best, and USC and Wash. are right up there in
the upper half of the conference. To call them three of the best teams is not
much of a stretch. And you can't deny that the second half of our schedule
should be easier than the first.
Duckhunter.... Have you even looked at the recruits the University Of Utah has
gotten for our 2012 class? We have the best QB recruit in the state of
California in Travis Wilson, and the Best recruit in the state of Utah in Chase
Hansen. Our recruiting success has picked up in recent years and we now out
recruit your cougars! I now see the whole reason the BYU fan base is looked down
upon nationwide, your fan base is cocky, disrespectful and like Max Hall would
say, "Classless." The last time your fan base down in Provo has had
anything to cheer about was in... 1984??? Hmm.. that seems a bit right. Us on
the other hand have had 2 undefeated seasons and now we are apart of a BCS
conference. Your cougars will soon fall into irrelevancy. GO UTES! 13-0 2008
12-0 2004, 54-10
@all utah "fans" LOL! @ute fan in utah
county"We have the best qb recruit in the state of California
in travis Wilson, and the Best recruit in the state of Utah in Chase
Hansen."Uh....wrong. On both counts. LOL!
BCS conferences have tougher competition week after week, that's where the
automatic qualification comes from. Utah is on the path, now just have to get
better and play to a standard every game, take your lumps and learn, you can
rise to the top. Making it in the big 12 is not about moral victories, but
victories over worthy opponents.
R.A.W.,I didn't say they are THE three best, I said they are three
OF the best. Please don't twist my words so you can slam the opinion you want
to attribute to me. The stats back up my claim. 5-4 in conference play would
send us to a bowl game. I'm good with that.
