Sun Bowl, Alamo Bowl??? I'll take it! And I am not counting out the Rose
Just when I give up hope for what I called the local media hacks you go and
right a nice piece. I will give credit where credit is due. Well done, and Go
Truly shows just how good the PAC 12 was this year in football with 8 teams with
6 wins or more although USC can't play in a bowl. Makes Utah's run that much
more impressive.I for one have had as much fun watching Utah
football this year as in any year I can remember. Playing better competition
week in week out has been awesome. No more UNLV's, New Mexico's, Wyomings, and
CSU's. I can honestly say there was not one week this year I didn't look forward
to. And to top it off, we have the Alamo, Sun or Holiday Bowl to look forward to
whereas the MWC champ gets the Vegas against a 6-6 UCLA, Cal, or ASU. Of course
then theres that Bell Helicopters Armed Forces Bowl.....GO UTES!!!
Any four of the bowls mentioned (Sun, Holiday, Alamo, and Rose) sound good to
me. They are all a step up from what we got in the MWC. Things really are a lot
more fun in the PAC 12.Go Utes!
Even with the disappointing losses, this has been a spectacular season to watch
from a fan's point of view. Watching this team fight back and not lose its fire
is something that fans really appreciate. It's great to know that we have great
coaches and great leadership in this program. They have done it against the
lower 2/3rds of the conference, but they have done it all the same, with a
questionable quarterback to boot. Thanks Utes for a great season.
Go Utes. Win the Rumble in the Rockies and stake your claim to the Pac-12 South.
Dare Arizona State later on Friday and then UCLA on Saturday to take that claim
Yes - nay of these bowls would be terrific. Fun season - fun team. Thanks to
the players and a special call out to Hayes...way to step in, learn the system
and play good ball. You should be very proud. Hopefully the Utes
stay focused for Friday!Go Utes!
Fiesta: Standford seems like a lockRose: winner of Oregon-Utah (conf
championship game)Alamo: loser of Oregon-Utah (conf championship game)Holiday: WashingtonSun: ASULV: UCLAKraft: CalRose, Alamo or Holiday will be just fine for first year Utes that have had to
play without starting QB all but first 3 games.All of Pac-12 bowls
have payout more than the 600K by the helicopter bowl.
...insecure Ute fan about his bowl money. It ain't about the money. Never has
been."Rose, Alamo or Holiday will be just fine for first year
Utes that have had to play without starting QB all but first 3 games."That's a nice slap in the face comment you give to Hays. He IS your ONLY
starting QB as if you really had one in the first place.Be it so
lucky that Wynn went down as early as he did to pave way for someone that can
take a hit once in a while.
Finishing 8-4 would put Utah ahead of UCLA, ASU, and CAL. If Utah comes out on
the downside of a conference tiebreaker, but has a better overall record, it
will be because Utah won their non conference games. Pitt and BYU
were road victories as good as a win against Washington would have been in the
PAC 12. I would swap a Washington win for a Pitt one. The Washington game was
dominated by Utah in the first half. Yet they trailed 10-7. At the half Utah
found out Wynn was going to be out because of the left shoulder. Hays has grown each time he steps on the field, but that second half against
Washington was a situation where he had no chance. Hays took his first division
one snaps there.
insecure coug fan contradicting himself. if it isn't about money then why does
byu still push for acceptance into a bcs conference? and don't say exposure,
either. even the most stalwart latter-day saint knows that exposure = more
@sammyg...That's a nice slap in the face comment you give to Hays.
He IS your ONLY starting QB as if you really had one in the first place...hahaha....if Utes did not have a starting QB in the first place, and yet
Utes destroyed BYU 54-10...what does that say about your team?It's
not a slap to Hays.Hays has stepped in and dis doing nicely now--much
improvements since he first stepped in the starting role.But...if Utes did not lose Wynn, that would be 2 more wins out of UW, ASU and
Cal.So even with all injuries, if they play again now, Utes will
still come outon top 64-0 (Utah D is much improved now as well).hahaha, I can't wait until next September so that Utes can beat BYU again.
