Poutasi will straight abuse any/every defender placed before him! There's
a reason Scout rated him a 4-Star recruit out of H.S. w/a long list of offers
from the big boys of College Football [i.e., Oregon] and starting as a
True-Freshman! W/even a mediocre O last season, we would've easily
finished w/a winning record against a strong SOS!I can't wait
to see our enormously huge/athletic hogs up-front get to work in '13! Go
Well we don't know until game one! go utes
I hope all these guys can stay healthy. The Utes O-line was the biggest
weakness last year so improvement is a must. I'm happy to hear that it is
now a position where we have a little depth in case someone gets hurt or just
needs to sit out a few plays. Last year we were plugging holes with guys that
had no experience.Keep it up Utes only a few more weeks until the
season begins.Can't wait.Go Utes!
8-4 season and in contention for PAC 12 title and roses. Mark it
Obviously this is great news for the Utes and I'm happy for them.
It's precisely why I try to warn our Cougar fans to be careful with silly
predictions. With a lot of inexperience JC transfer kids in the BYU offense
this year, it's hard to even imagine them going against all those 300+ lbs
poly kids in the Utes o line. I'm nervous about Sept but I also can't
wait for it to happen.Go Cougars beat the Utes! And good luck to
the Utes too after we beat them, (I hope)
The O-line depth is guaranteed to be a strength at this point with so many
players vying for playing time. The actual weakness/strength of the O-line will
only be proven in the actual games. That being said, I like what I am hearing.
The O-line should be able to protect the QB and if he does well the team
won't have as many problems as last year.This is the year Utah
finally beats Arizona State.
Hey Big Samoan! I like you. You're my kind of rival. Thanks for the
constructive comments.Go Utes!
Poutasi is a Beast; it sounds like the Utes are loaded up front and that's
a good thing. There's where it all starts.GO UTES
I remember last year before the season utah "fans", as well as utah
coaches and media member's, were telling us utah had "the best set of
wr's in the pac 12", the best defensive line in the pac 12",
"the best running back in the pac 12", "the best defensive backs in
the pac 12", "the best coaching staff in the pac 12", etc.They were losers. Let's bring on more of that "best" stuff this
I think the Oline will be better this year. I am hoping that it leads to more
holes for York and Co to run through and more time for Travis to pick the D
apart. Still not sold on Travis.
@duck"They were losers."How'd your team do
when they had to face those 'losers' on the field?It's why you're obsessed with us.Poor ducky.
@DuckhunterMore of the "best" stuff?Yeah... how
about another "Quest for Perfection"?Oh, and losers? Not
to the Cougars...
Ducky, good to see you're back.I will give credit to Duckhunter
that the defensive line was tooting its own horn a bit too much last year in the
pre-season with talks of "we're the best d-line in the nation."
That said, I feel like this o-line crew is young and hungry and will
be pretty formidable. That and Whit seems to be adding an extra sense of
urgency this year that will hopefully translate to improved play. Improved
record, I'll have to see it to believe it given the tougher schedule. But
August is all about fan optimism, right?!
Jeremiah is a man-child! I love to see the Vegas kid doing so well. Happy 19th
to Poutasi, by the way.The O-line will continue to get better in
'14 as we pick up Barton and Frison. Home grown beasts up front - love
it!Can't wait until September 21 for the fourth annual Tulsa
migration!!Bigsamoan - keep it classy my friend. You're always
welcome here!Go Utes!
Re: DuckWe won one game- let's have a parade!We win
three games- let's print "Quest for Perfection" T shirts!I guess you're still on that quest. Try beating Utah at least once and
then make your comments about who's alleging to be the best at anything.
I disagree with the weaknesses some say they had last year.The major
weakness is the constant revolving door with coaching staff. We need to maintain
some semblance of structure to maintain lofty goals. New staff each year creates
chaotic situations all season long.There needs to be a clear and decisive
leadership year in and year out. New OC each year does nothing to build trust
and partnership of the future.
DuckhunterHighland, UTI remember last year before the season utah
"fans", as well as utah coaches and media member's, were telling us
utah had "the best..."-------------How is that
any different than BYU fans claiming preseason national championships every
year... and then going on to win 7 games?LOL
Hey Tomahawk, show us a legitimate example of a single BYU fan claiming
preseason national championship this year in a context of seriousness. If you
can show us anything legitimate I'll cease to ever say anything negative
about Utah football ever again. Deal?I'll give you examples of
hilarity right in this very article's comments. "8-4 season and in
contention for PAC 12 title and roses. Mark it down". How is that any more
preposterous than a limited couple of BYU fans delusional enough to actually
believe preseason that BYU will win a NC? And the same commenter has made the
EXACT same comment on at least a dozen different articles (most of them BYU
articles) in the past 2 weeks.We'll wait for your legitimate
BYU NC claim examples.
My wish list. Utah's o-line, BYU's running backs and wide recievers. I
think that would be a 10-2 team. Time to wake up! Good luck utes.Go
@nosairwhatever5-7 is the definition of losers, sorry to have to
lend some reality to the utah "fan" delusion fest but by definition a
5-7 team are losers. As for the rest, well we'll have to see if
they are any better this year. Maybe, maybe not. One thing is for sure though,
despite the utah "fan" hyperbole before last season utah did not have
"the best" of anything, in the nation or in the pac 12. @tomahawk redThe only "fan"base making national
championship claims over the last several years has been utah "fans".
Once again just go back to last season when one particularly delusional utah
"fan" was posting preseason on here under the moniker
"utahnatlchamps13" or some such silliness. Other's, like christina,
naval, howie, etc. were telling us how last season was going to be
"special" how utah was going to win the pac 12 south and go to the rose
bowl.Those are not claims I'm just making up, that is fact and
you can go back and review it right here on the dnews.I like how
utah "fans" are the deluded ones but pretend otherwise. Funny stuff.
Is it me, or is Chris B and Duckhunter the same Junior High troll? Consider
the similarities:Chris B "We talk about BYU all the time;
we talk about what we could do at BYU and how we can win a National Championship
if we all went there, LOL!”"BYU has a shot, but many
things must fall into place" LOL!”Duckhunter“The Stretch Y is cool but I don't much care about how it ranks. I
do enjoy the utah "fan" angst over it though. LOL!”“So steel ute and spokane ute come along and just prove they feel major
angst as it oozes from their fingers onto their keyboards. LOL!”Consider the similarities:1.They both post on everything UTAH/BYU2.They both skew facts while ignoring underlying truths3.They both make
outlandish claims to incite responses4.They both overuse outdated Junior
High slang ‘LOL’The same person? Twin sons of different
mothers? Twin daughters? Both listen to Bieber . . .?
Why do the mods let trolls like Ducky through, meanwhile filter out comments
constantly that are not offensive and on topic?
They may be big but they are slow and will tire easily as the competition runs
circles around them. By the 2nd half of the game they will be sucking wind on
the bench while teams march up and town the field to the end zone. Mark
it down - Utah will finish either 3-8 or 4-8 at best.

Nice to see that we're building PAC-12 depth at the OL. I've read
about the increase in depth at the RB and QB positions as well. After the last 2 years I'll think it's and wait and see at QB
position with Wilson, Cox, and Manning. But I can't recall the last time
we had three young talented QBs.

nation. I give props to TCU, a legit team. Since you brought it
up, remember when Provo danced in the streets, lit fire works, and celebrated at
Provo airport a 1-0 Quest to a #7 ranking? Yes of course you
remember, that was you best team since 1996. What happened in week 3 @LES? FSU 58BYU 24That was the biggest win for FSU that
year, only had a winning record because they beat D2 Jacksonville at home 19-9
the week before throttling BYU at LES.See the difference?
Classic BYU fan fallback: If you cant beat 'em, find somebody who can and
deflect to that.

to go 10-3 and ranked AP/Coaches #26/23 in 2010, just like your 10-3 "good
team" in 2011 which was ranked #26/25 .The difference? 2010 Utah #26/23 lost to AP #2 TCU, #9 Boise in Vegas, and at #33 ND.2011 BYU #26/25 lost to AP #14 TCU in Cowboy Stadium, at #30 Texas, Utah @LES.
