    Key words: quiet confidence.

    Yes, no quest for this, BCS that, blah, blah, blah

    He was not the only one. I was at the RSL game and everybody seemed to think that we had clinched a playoff birth. At the end of the game they even announced that playoff tickets were on sale.

  • Whitt's quest
    Oct. 24, 2008 2:07 p.m.

    Though no slogan was created, Whitt's quest is to win a MWC title, something Kyle is yet to accomplish as a head coach.

    Every good coach establishes goals for his team at the beginning of each season.

    The only difference between Kyle's goals and Bronco's goals was the degree of difficulty in accomplishing their goals.

    Until you've won a conference championship, it makes little sense to be setting a goal of getting a BCS bid or playing for a NC.

    If Utah had accomplished what BYU had accomplished the last two seasons, it wouldn't have been a bit surprising to see Kyle setting the same types of goals for Utah as BYU had this season.

    All of the "Quest" knocking by Utah fans, is kindled more by jealousy, than by anything Bronco did by choosing this year's slogan and goals.

    There has been plenty of "Quest" knocking by BYU fans as well. In fact, there has been plenty of Bronco bashing by BYU fans, too. MWC championships you people talk about is just another way of saying 'just wait till last year.'

    Keep talking up your past championships, brother, but in the interim please explain to me what Utah fans have to jealous of. All the BYU talk about BCS this year is driven by the fact that BYU has never accomplished what Utah has. When BYU brings money into the conference, THEN you can talk. Until then, stay in the back seat and keep quiet!

    If Bronco had been invited to visit ESPN we would be hearing incessant BYU blather. He was not invited. DEAL WITH IT!

    In four simple words...

    Hall to Sanders...(OOPS!)

    RESULT
    No more "Quest"
    Probably no MWC championship
    National humiliation

    Yet, BYU will no doubt be standing in line with their hand out to collect their $1 Million courtesy of the University of Utah, Coach Wittingham, and the BCS just like they did four year ago.

    Until Utah has accomplished it, I would be careful. Utah still has to play TCU as well, and you better believe BYU is going to be ready for the Utah game.

    By the way, Utah does not have a national championship.

    THE ONLY PLACE THAT NATIONAL REPUTATION FOR THE U IS FOUND IS IN THE MINDS OF UTE FANS LIKE RE WITTS QUEST.

    Hey Shawnbo, neither does BYU. There is no such thing as an NCAA Football Div. 1 Championship.
