Welcome to Utah, new recruits! Welcome to the Conference of Champions. You are
now being coached by the best and in an elite BCS Conference.Coach
Whittingham will make you faster, stronger and smarter. You have made an
Great looking class right now with some possible additions on signing day. Also
possible to have at least one big name commit change their mind. Let's let the
dust settle and then look at the final product before making too many comments.
I'm excited about the potential of the Utes recruiting class but as has already
been mentioned, there are a lot of things that can change between now and
Wednesday. I know there are a few big names that could still swing our way but
some could change their minds too. It could be one of the best classes the Utes
Our condolences to the new recruits who have chosen to join a PAC 12 bottom
dweller. Even Colorado is signing a stronger recruiting class.
Enjoy the bottom of the Pac 12 boys. And guys like Hedgie, Chrissy, Otis good
luck your going to need it! Chase will look to seeing you in Cugar
Blue after your mission. Thanks for making ute fan feel good for the moment.
@ PAC Manbottom dweller? You talking about the team that just
finished an 8-5 with its backup quarterback, the team with 18 returners,
including most of its insane defense and JWIV, and the only team besides Oregon
that most football sites (ESPN, Rivals, etc...) are predicting to give USC a run
for its money next year?As for colorado, I applaud them. But this
gets into the whole star debate. It's not what you've got, it's what you make of
what you've got, and I'd rather take our recruits and our three star cornerback
over their recruits and Yuri Wright any day. Coach Embree's desperate enough to
take him despite his actions since he's got talent. But, he;s already shown that
he has a character issue, and I sincerely hope it doesn't come around to haunt
Embree in the future. Still, despite a good recruiting class, Colorado's still
expected to finish bottom of the Pac next year, maybe 4 wins.
MN UteBottom Dweller, finishing 8th in a 12-team league, and losing
your season finale at home to a 10-loss team. BYU finished 10-3, ranked in the
Top 25, with its backup quarterback. USC will have a Top 10 recruiting class
and, unlike this year where U were given a free pass, next season you'll have to
get past USC just to win the division.Utah's choices for QB next
season:- an injury-prone former starter- a Division II
transfer- a true FreshmanAnd still no quality backup.Good luck with that.
Lots of jealous Cougar fans posting on a Utah article and as usual misquoting or
making up facts. Did not see any of them mention that EVERY recruiting service
rates Utah's incoming class higher than BYU.
your mighty 10 win wac championship team lost to that same pathetic pac 12
bottom dweller by a very large margin.
buttersIf getting blown out 3 times in conference AND losing to one
of the worst teams in the nation at home, means nothing. Then ONE 54-10 fluke
means nothing. U beat just as many teams the equivalent of Wac teams as well, no
matter how you try to put that Pac spin on it.
It's kind of unfair to call BYU the "WAC championship team." Because
that was La Tech... a team that actually had a legitimate shot at beating TCU.
BYU's THREE losses all came to bowl-winning teams.Utah's FIVE losses
all came to bowl-losing teams or teams that didn't even play in a bowl.Bottom Line:BYU finished the season ranked in the Top 25 for 5th
time in the last 6 seasons.Utah finished out of the rankings, as
usual.Obviously, that fluke, turnover-plagued win at BYU wasn't all
that meaningful in the overall season, except to our BYU-obsessed friends on the
hill.btw, BYU finished with a break-even record in the PAC 12;
better than Utah's losing record.
Uteanymous, anything to escape the reality of a head-to-head result.
A lot of uninformed trolls out. Utah's recruiting class is in the middle of the
PAC 12. They finished in the middle of the PAC 12, and was only one of two PAC
12 teams to win a bowl game. Calling a 54-10 beat down a "fluke" is
absurd. Score Board Buddy Boy. Nice class for the Utes. Considering what they
have down with average recruiting classes, I guess I would be worried too if I
pulled for the team that got smacked in the mouth, at home, to Utah by 44
points. Go UTES!
Spin it any way you want, but 54-10 says it all!SCORE BOARD!Blah ha ha ha ha ha ha
jarka, you jump to conclusions to quickly. if anyone put a spin on anything it
was you putting the wac spin on the lesser teams in the pac 12. i also never
said those losses didn't hurt. i was at just about every single one of them.all of the annoyed cougar fans out there that hate hearing
"54-10" echos will get no sympathy from me or any ute supporter.
we've been hearing how magic happens and that collie and harline are still open
for years.keep calling september 17, 2011 a fluke if it makes you
feel any better. personally i think it's a sad, last ditch effort to excuse a
poor performance.anyway, stepping away from selfish banter (which is
what we should have done in the first place) congrats to these kids for
receiving a scholarship offer and continuing their dreams of playing football at
a higher level. paying for school is one less thing them and their parents will
have to worry about.good luck to them all.
Wow, so much hate and bitterness from the byu fans. I thought byu fans were
happy with being independent in football and being a member of the PCC or WWC (I
can never remember byu's new conference).I guess jealousy is a hard
emotion to conquer. I wish you all the best.Your Uncle,Otis
112 PackSpin it any way you want to, but one game does not a season
make.Colorado had SCOREBOARD! Does that prove that the
Buffs were a better team than Utah?------------------------------OtisI thought Utah fans left BYU in the dust in June 2010,
yet you're still totally obsessed with BYU. Tell me, when was the last time you
posted on a Colorado Buffs blog? Is Utah even in the upper half of PAC 12
recruiting classes? As much as U try to convince us otherwise, the BYU game is
still THE most important game on Utah's schedule. Utah fans would rather finish
with a losing record in the PAC 12, than lose to BYU.
When I read some of the posted comments on this article that tells me, BYU
fans/Utah haters made an effort to come on this article and bash. My question
to them would be, you must like Utah football. Whether they do or not, my
advice to them is, "if you can't beat'em, join'em!"
Congratulations to all the new Utes! Best wishes for a successful educational
and athletic experience. Wow.....envy is such an ugly emotion. A
good share of the comments here from Cougar trolls who choose to post their
unhappiness with their program on a Ute story while their own remains
uncommented on.Pretty sad they'd rather come here to hate than
congratulate the young men who chose their program.
byu fans are sad little things
