    Kills me to think where they could have gone if they didn't blow that game to Colorado. At least we have basketball to look forw......errr.....oh man.

    What's the latest on Brennar and Kruger? Will they be 100% for the bowl game?

    I have to laugh at they hypocrisy of all the cougar fans who think they're putting Utah down by mocking our season-ending loss to Colorado, and our subsequent postseason destination. Those frantic and emotional cougies are obviously still smarting about getting blown out, at Home, by 44-pts to the Utes. Getting blown out by 44-pts is WAY worse than losing the game over a missed FG as time expired. Furthermore, anybody headed to the Armed Forces Bowl cannot laugh at anybody else playing in a bowl game with a payout of over $600K. The AF Bowl is the 4 lowest paying bowl game in the NCAA FBS league. The Sun Bowl pays out over 3 times the Armed Forces Bowl, and we don't get stuck playing any mid-major opponent.

    Edge: Utah; everyway you could possibly look at it.

    54-10

    GO UTES!!!

    Still laughing at the ute fans that think the sun bowl is a big time bowl. Utah had its chance. In fact it had its best chance it will probably see in the next 10 years to make it to a big time bowl game.

    I would even go so far as to say that Utah had a better chance of going to a BCS bowl as a member of the MWC than they will as a member of the pac12.

    Naval Vet,

    Not one person here from BYU has bashed on the Utes and you come on here as a Ute fan and try to start the argument. Get over your obsession with BYU and cheer for the Utes. You do no credit to yourself or Ute fans.

    Good luck to the Utes in the Sun Bowl!
    Go Utes!

    "Mental reps" are a technique applied by assistant coach Harold Hill, formerly known as "the think system." It comes with a band instrument of the players choice.

    @ ExecutorIoh

    What White means by that is that he's going to the weight room with his teammates and getting in to the right frame of mind for the bowl game. Seriously, why mock somebody who's done so much for the Utes all season and is still working hard when he can't physically do some of the work. Do you know how mentally and emotionally tough it is to be there with your teammates and not be able to do anything?
    Show some respect for the athletes, doesn't matter whether you're a coug or not, live by your supposed honor code and don't mock someone for something they can't control.

    Not JUST "Lifelong Republican". Don't forget about "So. Cal Reader" too. His was the 5th post of the day. Plus, cougar fans have been doing within minutes of Utah accepting the Sun Bowl, so don't act all surprised that they'd be here doing that.

    Trying to remember what got in the way of a trip to New Orleans. 17-16 loss in week two sent you to Dallas, ending your season!

    There is not a better coach in America for preparing his troops for bowl games than Coach Whittingham.

    This life-long Coug (and the overwhelming majority of the rest of Cougar nation) will be rooting for you in El Paso and in every future game in years to come (with a one-day exception every year).

    Go UTES!

    So. Cal Reader apparently the smog in SoCal is effecting the old grey matter upstairs. You are correct though,"Christmas in El Paso! No better place." We will enjoy the beautiful Bowl color of GREEN, yes green, $2M green! And another worthy BCS Bowl opponent. While your Cougies are in the little Copter Bowl playing for a measly $600K.

    The Utes had a great season, that afforded excitement all season long while the Cougies missed out on the excitement because of your week three loss. 54-10 We took you out of it! Season over! End of discussion!

    You are joking aren't you? Why would Witt pass on 2 SEC offers for Millions and take a job in Tempe?

    Witts happy with his AWSOME Utes!

    FYI; tell your AD to call Tom Holmoe, there might be a coach more than ready to jump a sinking ship in his program!

    "Why would you assume I am a BYU fan?"

    1. Because all you had to throw down were cougar talking points...
    2. ...on the DNews; a noted "cougar country" media outlet...
    2. ...with an "Orem" home address.

    So are you REALLY going to deny being a cougar fan? Are you too embarrassed to admit it?

    "Umm.....Isn't Pitt in Pittsburgh and not Philadelphia?"

    Ummmm, you realize Orem and Provo are separate cities don't you? If Naval Vet is going to assume someone in Orem is automatically a Byu fan well then no reason we can't assume NV is a fan of Pitt? How many Temple football fans do you think there are in the entire country, let alone Pennsylvania? Since NV's claim is being a ute fan, Pitt came to mind first because they played the Utes this year. My bad for not considering Penn State. As it is closer in proximity to the #5 city in the nation. I stand corrected teach.

    You're joking, right? Kyle had 2 SEC offers? One we all know about, the Tennessee job had been offered to 6 other coaches ahead of him (even major football power Duke's HC thumbed his nose at the job before they offered it to Kyle).

    Nobody seems to remember a 2nd SEC offer...was it as a LB coach at Vandy or something?

    Obviously you don't know the process of hiring a coach; several names are always listed. Who knows what order the names fall under.

    This process happens time and time again.

    Correction; except for the team down south, and look what happened after Edwards.

    @duckhunter, so cal reader

    Wow, it's amazing to me to read your pro-BYU comments on Vai Sikahema's article, touting how great it is that you guys had your daughters attend there, etc. to enjoy the BYU experience with its intrinsic higher standards and values. Yet you come onto a Utah football article and belittle the Utes and its fans, and act like anything but the fans of an institution that professes to follow a higher standard.

    I think, instead of a higher standard, you follow more of a double standard.

    I fell on the floor laughing! you are a trip BFF. A Cougie from Springville trying to find a BFF! LOL To one of our PAC brothers no less!

    Here's the scoop Band of Lil Brothers. We thumped you good 54-10 in your own house, go find your own friends, if you can. Bridges seem to be burned with 2 major conferences, MWC teams won't schedule you, not much left in your friend pool.

    Once again you said; "Note to Yellow Jackets..." LOL

    Note to the WAC Conference, we annihilated them 54 - 10 so can you!

    Hang in there Band of Lil Brothers! LOL! Don't let the football hit you in the face mask.

    And then as this masquerade BFF guy, you announce that you beat the Utes! LOL, Obviously, your own team can't beat the Utes, so you go and find another team to parade behind!

    Not as good as our 54-10 beat down, but you Cougies are getting desperate.
