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.
I like the Utes!
Can't wait! 3 Weeks can't come soon enough!!GO UTES!
What's the latest on Brennar and Kruger? Will they be 100% for the bowl game?
Christmas in El Paso! No better place. Trying to remember what got in the way of
a sure trip to Pasadena. 17-14.
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.54-10GO UTES!!!
What are "mental reps"? I am going to try asking my boss if I can
"mentally" go to work next week.
Buzz in Tempe that Whittingham is a mention for the Sun Devil job...any
thoughts? rumors? We'd love to get that guy.
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.
And Lifelong Republican has to comment and prove me wrong.../sigh.
@ ExecutorIohWhat 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.
Arynen:"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....And Lifelong
Republican has to comment and prove me wrong..." 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.
I watched Georgia play Georgia Tech this year and Georgia pounded them. Utah
should have an easy go of it with Georgia Tech.
@ExecutorlohSomebody that has a question like that certainly has
never been on an athletic team. Why make a comment.@ArynenMake sure you read Joe Schmoe or So Cal Reader before you get all over Naval

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!
Why would you assume I am a BYU fan? I mentioned nothing about BYU...
@ So. Cal Reader"Christmas in El Paso! No better place. Trying
to remember what got in the way of a sure trip to Pasadena. 17-14." 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!Hang in there Band of Lil Brothers!
@ magicmarker"Buzz in Tempe that Whittingham is a mention for
the Sun Devil job...any thoughts? rumors? We'd love to get that guy."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!Utah by 44!
Lifelong Republican:"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
Naval VetUmmmmmmmm isn't your listing is in Philedelphia?! Shouldn't
you be a Pitt fan then? why are you ranting about Byu on a Ute article?
@ Jacker-ras"Ummmmmmmm isn't your listing is in Philedelphia?!
Shouldn't you be a Pitt fan then?"Umm.....Isn't Pitt in
Pittsburgh and not Philadelphia?
Naval Vet - Football season is almost over and then what are u going to rant
about? Hey, maybe you can use some of that bowl money to pay people to come to
your basketball games.
Naval VetPhiladelphia, PAThis is refreshing! a person with
common sense and intelligence.Gr8 comments Navel VetNavel Vet for President!Hang in there Band of Lil jarka-ras
Bleed Crimson"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
@pawpsYou'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?
@ Bleed Crimson | 2:18 p.m. Dec. 9, 2011 Sandy, Utah Be nice
to him. He has proven over time that he's not the sharpest tool in the shed.
@Griz"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)."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.Band of Sisiters
Moderator: You denied my very FIRST ever comment to the DNews. Would you
please explain exactly what I said that was wrong? Thank you
Thanks Utah! We love U.Note to the Yellow Jackets... We beat em', so
@duckhunter, so cal readerWow, 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.
@ Colorado's BFFYou got that right! Utah and Colorado are BFF's now!
We know who your new collegiate BFF is...Weber State! "Note to the Yellow Jackets... We beat em', so can you!"Note to the Golden Hurricane and Weber State Wildcats... We didn't just beat
them, we thumped them pretty good 54-10, so can you!
@ Colorado's BFF Springville, UTYou said; "Thanks Utah!
We love U.Note to the Yellow Jackets... We beat em', so can
you!" 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..." LOLNote 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.
@ Colorado's BFF Springville, UTCute, that little BYU
fan from Springville, pretending to be Colorado's BFF.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.Hang in there Band of BFF.
Utah has to finish off strong against Georgia Tech. A 8-5 first season in the
PAC-12... I'll take it.Go UTES!! @Lifelong Republican:
"Why would you assume I am a BYU fan?"Well you were a

have something to look forward from now until March. Keep it going Cougars!

weeks ago"Uteology, that was the BEST posting of the year!,

Republican! LOL Band of Lil Brothers, can't get over their antics.
@duckhunter"LOL"? Is that the best you can do?
