Great game! The Secondary needs a lot of work, they gave up way to many big
plays. USU's run defense was great. USU's Offense seemed to be able to
move the ball pretty good against Utah's defense. The big killer was
penalties. Can't give up 90 yards of penalties to a Utah team and expect to
USU simply out played the Utes. If I was a Ute fan right now, I would be very
nervous about only getting one more win on the schedule and that is against
Weber. It is going to be a long season for Utah.
I will not let you overconfident Aggies forget this. I was right and suprise
suprise you were wrong. UofU is better than USU once again. It's gonna be
a long season for you aggies.
Aggies were far to conservative in the 3rd quarter. In the end, that killed
USU's secondary is a known concern, and the Aggies call a blitz on 3rd
& 9 with the Utes deep in their own territory? What was the defensive
No blame should go to USU, it was a few plays on Utah to blame. Wilson,
Williams, Anderson, and Murf on Offense. The defense stepped up when need in the
3 and 4 qtr. These are the player that got the win for Utah.
Stang08:Come talk to us in a couple of months when USU has double
digit wins and UofU has double digit loses.
Whatever, Stango. With or without you, we wouldn't forget it anyway. It was
a tough, competitive and close game. I bet you didn't expect that. We got 11 games left, and Keeton proved he can play with the best of
them. I love our chances of making a 3rd consecutive bowl game.
@stang08"It's gonna be a long season for you
aggies."Actually you're right.....the Aggies will be
playing "long" into December.
I can name two plays that cost USU the game: the 15 yd penalties for playing
after the helmet was lost and the unsportsman-like conduct for hitting the guy
when he was out of bounds. Both occurred on the same drive, and both were the
result of lack of self-discipline--especially the helmet fiasco. They kept a
drive alive which resulted in a touchdown. The Utes had been feckless to that
point and were about to punt from deep in their own territory! College players
should know better and be more disciplined!
@ Stang08If you had the objectivity to match your obvious arrogance,
you'd realize that the Aggies would and could beat the Utes at least 3 of
every 5 times they played... if rematches in the same year were allowed. Even Kyle, the Ute coach admitted that the Utes were very fortunate to
win last night and that in many aspects of the game, the Utes were outplayed. So
get off your high-horse and give some credit where credit is due. There is very
little doubt that the Aggies will finish the season with a better record than
the Utes will have.
What's the matter, Stango? You mad that I'm not really all that mad,
bro? The Utes earned it. I have no problem admitting that. One game
does not a season make.
Two stupid penalties - if either one hadn't occurred the Ute drive dies and
USU most likely wins. Or one play for a 59 yard pass/gain - again had that
specific assignment not been missed the Ute drive dies and USU likely wins. And
finally of course the on-sides kick. USU simply has to learn how to survive
those! While I think the Utes played one a heck of a game (they did
manage to win it after all) the fact remains if USU had played just a tiny bit
better on *ANY ONE* of those plays USU would have likely won the game by 9
points at least.USU had the game in the bag in the third quarter and
managed to throw it away. :-(Hopefully the USU team learns a lesson
from this. Likely we will, just like last year the team will realize that
they've got to completely focused whenever they are on the field. Given our
schedule I'm pretty sure we end up in our third bowl in a row, but the
season will not be quite as spectacular as many of us were hoping for until last
U fan here and I have all the respect in the world for USU after that game. It
was amazing being at that game and watching the things Keeton could do. I hope
you guys have a great rest of the season, I wouldn't be surprised to see
you guys go 11-2 again. I think my Utes can make a bowl game because they made a
lot of mistakes last night and have a lot of potential to improve. Now as for
all the BYU fans on here I would worry about your own team if I was you. You
won't be able to get most of your wins this year against bottom level WAC
teams like you have the past 2 years. I am very much looking forward to watching
you get smacked around in Logan like you were the last time you were up there.
And ignore Stang, he's obviously a bandwagon fan who doesn't know jack
@steeleuteYou don't know me and don't know what you are
talking about. As for the rest of you. What matter is now at this moment in
this season. And in this season USU lost to Utah. Just like they have done
every year except last. You lost so deal with it.
Stang08:I lost? Look at my username. I'm a Ute fan. Don't
believe me? I'm a season ticket holder for 7 straight years. I sit in
section W13 row 55 seat 23 if you want to come get educated about football. And
what I'm saying is have some grace and respect for your opponent and
don't act like we killed Utah State because we didn't. And by saying
Utah State is going to have a long season proves you didn't pay attention
to the game at all to see how Utah State had us on the ropes the whole time and
how good of a QB Chuckie Keeton is. We got lucky he started to get cramps the
last several minutes of the 4th quarter because the FG we held them to probably
would have been a TD if he hadn't sat out those couple of plays on 2nd and
3rd and goal. USU also out gained us in total yards 487 to 450. So if they were
able to do that to our defense then they will not have many problems this season
against other opponents.
And I'll go on record and say that, excluding Marcus Mariota for Oregon,
Chuckie Keeton is the best QB in the west. I was that impressed by watching him
in person last night.
Classy coach! Classy fans! Now this game is over Aggie's will be the
"blue" team this fan cheers for!
Oh Stang. You make me laugh, even when USU loses to Utah.This loss
stung. (Not stang. hahaha) We had some penalties, some cramps, and credit
Utah: Wilson took advantage of our new secondary. Utah did what they had to do
in order to win, and we did not.While a win in this game would have
been a HUGE vault into the spotlight in state and a good splash in national
media, the truth is we are still playing for a MWC Championship. That test
starts in 4 days.I love my team, and I love being an Aggie.
Was that supposed to be funny? It's not even at the level of my sisters 7
year old girl.
