Kiffins gone... Is wit next. His records is abysmal in conference
@ Chris B:Better find something else to do this Thursday night
besides watch football. You won't like what happens. Unfortunately, the
same things you wish on BYU fans... on BYU articles no less... is going to come
right back at you. It won't be pretty. For some strange reason, there
seems to be some justice in there somewhere. After Thursday, you
will 1-3 in your last 4 picks. Not much to brag about. Oh well, there's
always next year. But wait... you won't be playing BYU next year. That
means there won't be anything at all to look forward to... except playing
Weber. And yes, we'll mark that one down, as requested. Hopefully, you'll be able to enjoy USU's and BYU's bowl games
without too much of your usual criticism ... since they will be the only local
teams represented again this year. But keep trying. There just has to be an
eventual end to that conference cellar dweller status sometime... maybe...
possibly... hopefully. We're all pulling for U, Chris.
Ha ha gotta love BYU trolls. A couple days after beating a team I've never
heard of and they're already back at it on the Utah boards. What's
funny is BYU is probably the only team in the nation to go the whole month of
September without a TD pass.
Tators: you must have some obsession with Utah because you post a lot on their
All I ask is that when Utah makes a bowl game at the end of the season that the
trollers come on here to admit they were wrong. I'll certainly come on here
to admit it if I'm wrong if they don't end up going. But to think they
will go 2-6 the rest of the way after a 3-1 start is pretty naive, even for the
Does it get any bigger than this? UCLA, a top 10 team, playing in SLC in a
conference game. Yes, it can get bigger - just wait 10 days and Stanford, a top
5 team, playing in SLC in a conference game. Getting to play the very best,
getting to see the very best, never could have imagined this. I love it! Go
@ steeleute:I have no obsession at all with Utah. I just like to
call them as I see them. Besides, I post a lot less on Ute articles than a host
of Ute trolls post on BYU articles. A lot less overall. Numbers don't lie.
I admit than In a weaker moment, I occasionally succumb when certain Ute trolls
set the table for such a response. But definitely not Chris B type of on-gong
and never-ending BYU obsession. Not even close.But on top of that, I
do admit somewhat embracing the feeling of letting Chris B and a few of his
minions feel a little bit back what they constantly dish out. One thing you
still need to learn, steeleute... What goes around, comes around. If lightning strikes and the U somehow has a winning season, I will man-up and
admit my prediction was wrong online. Not a problem if that's all
you're asking. But until then, it won't cause a loss of any sleep.
I'm all for having a reasonable football conversation though. So if you
guys want to explain why you really don't think Utah has a "chance"
at a bowl game then I'll be happy to explain my opinion why I do they think
they will make one. I follow most of the in-state teams though pretty closely
and if you want my two cents on the rest of BYU's season and how I think it
will play out I'll be happy to let you know insult and jab free.
I can't believe I am saying this about our defense but it's all comes
down to the DBs. Our secondary was horrendous against OSU and ULCA is a better
team. Our secondary seemed to have fixed the issues against BYU but then again
they have one of the worst passing offenses in the country.Go UTES!
Tators: unfortunately some of my fellow fans troll way too much on BYU articles
and vice versa with some BYU fans. Even I fall into the trap and will go post
some stupid troll comments sometimes. Maybe it's a good thing the two teams
won't be playing for the next 2 years. Hopefully some of the animosity dies
down during that time.
byu fans hoping UCLA will do what byu hasn't been able to accomplish in
four years is just priceless. byu lost again even with a strategically placed
bye week before the game, magic uniforms, and KVN predicting a
"bloodbath." LOL! I noticed that as of today, not one
opponent byu has on their schedule is currently ranked. You guys really need to
get into a conference...if the MWC will take you back.As for the
Utes, there is some great football coming to SLC. That's what elite
conferences are about...excellence on and off the field. - Cheers!
Uteology: Ya, our DB's will probably determine the outcome of this one. I
think the LB play needs to be big too because they will need to contain Hundley
if he decides to run. Should be a fun game though, I'm excited because
I'll be there decked out in my black Ute gear!
It's fitting that the Utes chose to make this a blackout game; their slim
PAC 12 South hopes will end on Thursday.
Isn't it great there is still one team in Utah very much alive for a power
conference title game and rose bowl birth?Things I've said
since the offseason:1. Utah would beat byu(done)2. Utah
would beat usu(done)3. Utah would go 8-4(well on our way)4. The
Utah/UCLA winner would win Pac 12 South.And for those who say Utah
won't be UCLA, you are the same people who said Utah wouldn't beat usu
and wouldn't beat byU.And we know how those went.GO
UtesOnward and Upward
Utah 27UCLA 24Mark it Down
@Tators and Thomas Jefferson...LOL! I love how cougie fan's
have to jump on the band wagon of other teams hoping they can do what the
cougies have no chance of doing....beating the utes. I know it hurts
cougies 4 in a row, 9 of 12 and complete domination overall of our little
brothers to the south! Poor KVN came back to provo for no reason he played his
superbowl and lost yet again 0 - 4 for KVN in his "superbowl"....GO
UCLA will be a huge test, but home field should aid Utah. The PAC 12 is loaded
this year, so any win will be a good win. It sould be great to get this one; GO UTES!>--->
A lowest regarded bowl game at the end of a season of playing no ranked teams
(what ever happened to Texas, Boise State, Wisconsin and Notre Dame?)The hardest
schedule EVER in BYU history? Ouch! Compare that to Utah's schedule of 5
more top 25 teams. I'll take the exciting, challenging and highly respected
season every time.
2b"I love how [BYU] fan's have to jump on the band wagon of
other teams..."Yes, that's soooo much different than Utah
fans jumping on the band wagon of EVERY BYU opponent.I know it
hurts, winning the battle, but losing the war with BYU every year.KVN will be playing in another bowl game this year, while the sorry Utes are
once again spending bowl week on the couch.
Plan A: talk smack after BYU beats UtahPlan B: talk smack after
BYU loses to Utah (again)It's on to plan B for Thomas
Jefferson, Tators and Pacman. I'll clue you boys in on a little secret,
after you've been dominated you may want to cease with the trash talk.

@ Chris B27-24???While I do think Utah has a chance in
this game, I think it's a given that at least one, probably both teams will
score at least 30 points.
reasonableUTEIt's a given that UCLA will score 30+ points; not
even close to a given that Utah will score more against UCLA than the Utes
scored against BYU.UCLA 37Utah 17
The Utah/UCLA winner WILL play Oregon for the Pac 12 title and Rose Bowl.And Utah is only a 3 point underdog.That shows the respect
the football world has for Utah against a powerhouse team and top 15 UCLA team
that is undefeated.Go UtesI LOVE my BCS membership!
chris bThings you've conveniently forgotten that you said since
the off season:1. Texas would stomp BYU - see most rushing yards
ever given up by Texas2. Utah would finish September 4-0 - see OSU
dominating Utah for most of the game3. Winner of the UCLA/Utah game WILL
win the PAC South - true, winner UCLAUnfortunately for U, the Bruins
are a much better team than the Beavers.UCLA 45Utah 17
As the lone UCLA fan here, I will say this. Am I worried? No not really,
however, I have to admit that UCLA's last couple of visit's to Rice
Eccles, in fact just Utah, we have not fared well. However, this is a
completely different team than the two who came here in 07' and 11'.
UCLA is 9-2 overall against Utah but the majority of that was from 74' and
earlier. The record is 2-2 since 2006. But again, this is a different UCLA
team. UCLA is on a mission this year and they see an opportunity to dominate the
PAC-12 South.ChrisB, I am sorry, I am not seeing a Utah win of
27-24. Utah will get there points, but not enough.We have scored a
bunch this year and not given up a whole lot. I still like my Bruins in this

I remember a comment that Chris B made about the oregon state game "Our offense is much better than their defense and our defense is much
better than their offense. Considering all their injuries and the fact they lost
to a division II team, I think the only scenario we lose this game is of we turn
the ball over 5 times, and that just won't happen. Look for
Utah to score early and coast to an easy victory. Utah 34Osu

sentiment exactly! The rivalry game is over and we lost. It's time to

Same with the Aggies after this weekend. Go Cougars! Go utes! Go
Aggies after this Friday!
@ WAC man"It's fitting that the Utes chose to make this a
blackout game; their slim PAC 12 South hopes will end on Thursday"Utah tends to win their black out games since they started that tradition back
in 2008 (4-1 record to be exact). BYU decided to jump on the black out game
bandwagon last year and got the rear ends handed to them by Oregon State. The
cougars won't be doing that anymore after that embarrassment last year.
"UCLA has the 5th ranked defense in the conference."They may
have the fifth best or they may have the best. However, having played Nebraska,
Nevada Reno and NM St. I don't believe anyone knows how good their defense
actually is. We'll see Thursday night. I do know that our DB's had
better bring their A game.
I am pulling for Utah to win. I hope they do. But I am a realist. Utah's
chances are not great. They had trouble containing Keeton and Hundley is better.
Now that's not to say that Utah couldn't pull off the upset they very
well could. I hope they do because that makes the whole state look better.
Here's to hoping.
Reminds me of a line from "The Princess Bride".Wesley (UCLA)
to Inigo (Utah): -Get used to disappointment.-OK.
@Tators:0-4. Shhhhhhh.Stoked for a ranked Bruins team
(actually deserving of their ranking) to bring their powerful competition to
Rice Ecceles Stadium Thursday night!Go Utes!
Chris B you are delusional if you think Utah will win the PAC 11 south. Your
claim is based on what? The way they dominated Oregon State? (the only
dominating win this season for the Utes has been Weber State)UCLA's defense is too good, and Mazzone (Erickson's old offensive
coordinator) has UCLA firing. USC (the ones who held USU to 14 points) will be
rebounding with an invigorated offense now that Kiffin is gone. ASU will score
45 points and outgun Utah's defense. They will be close and I hope will
even win against the Wildcats who only managed 13 points at Washington last
week. Luckily there is Colorado, otherwise the Utes would be the cellar dwellar
of the PAC 11 South Add in losses to Oregon and Stanford and the
Utes end up with 6 losses in the PAC 11 this year. Lucky for them
BYU's offense is abysmal or they would be staring at an 8 loss season this
Stoked for a ranked Bruins team (actually deserving of their ranking) to bring
their powerful competition to Rice Ecceles Stadium Thursday night!Go
To Chris B and the rest of the MUSS faithful,Your defense gave up 51
points to OSU they are not UCLA!!!UCLA just might show you how it feels to
be on the losing end of a 70-7 whipping!!!I think the Utes are going to
need a lot more then a blacked out MUSS and theme night to beat the Bruins!!!
Maybe the Utes should pray for snow or rain? Will Jim Mora call off the dogs
when they are ahead by 35 or run some trick plays for practice? Good luck Utah,
this is not going to be a repeat of the Alabama game!!!UCLA 65 Utah
21!!!Go Utes prove me wrong again!!! Go Cougs!!! Beat the
Aggies!!!Go Aggies win the MWC!!!
So the article says UCLA has a 5th ranked Defense, it is actually #6. Yes it is
against Nevada, Nebraska, and New Mexico State. But Utah has the 11th ranked
Defense against Utah State, Weber State, Oregon State, and BYU.UCLA
has the #1 rated offense in the PAC-12, and Utah has the #5. I am sure the 70
Points against Weber State helped out. UCLA has scored 20 TD's this year,
Utah has 16, 10 of them came against Weber State. You have punched it in on
average two times a game without Weber State. I will be fair though, we have 20
TD's, you can take our 8 we scored against New Mexico State. But that is
cool, we still have 12, twice as many as you do with one entire less game.UCLA has given up only 7 TD's to your Utes 10, and 6 of your 10
came against OSU, and UCLA looks to be better than OSU.Your Defense
gives up avg. 406 yards per game, UCLA averages 614 yards per game.Sorry Ute fans it does not look good.GO BRUINS!
Utah on average is giving up 24 points per game, UCLA is scoring on average 52
points per games.Utah is scoring 42 Points per game, 32 without
Weber State. UCLA is giving up only 18.Just based on that alone, I
am thinking UCLA is holding a pretty good edge. However, like I said before,
UCLA does not have a great record recently in the St ate of Utah.I
don't know Ute fans, I am liking my Bruins more and more. But to be
honest, these are the games I fear. The ones where everyone expects you to win.
Here is to a good game and a Bruin win.GO BRUINS!
MyPerspectiveYou're assuming Utah's realistic bowl options
include the Rose Bowl, Holiday Bowl, etc., when in reality they're really
New Mexico Bowl or bust.
Every BYU fan would trade places with Utah. I would be interested if
certain newspapers would do a readers poll to see if BYU fans would trade places
with Utah. Independence for Pac 12 if BYU didn't have to play on Sundays.
Seriously: Pac 12 consistently vs. Who knows? WCC vs. Pac 12
opponents? My family has 4 tix to every football game and attends
5-8 basketball games each year. It is so much funner having quality opponents
every week in football and now the rivalries are starting to happen within the
Pac 12. It's fun knowing you have 10 really good basketball teams coming in
each year instead of just UNLV and BYU and some times New Mexico.I
wish the rivalry game didn't go away. I would trade BYU for Michigan any
day. Regardless, being in the conference is so much better than not belonging.

redfeatherNo assumptions on my part regarding the Utes...not speculating
about anything. I stated a simple fact: If byu makes it to a bowl,
they get the left overs from the power conferences. byu's schedule next
year is less than a MWC part II quality. Finally, the 2 for 1 deals do, in
fact, keep rolling in for byu. IMO, byu fans enjoy their independence gig but
it is hard for me to understand why.
Tators"I have no obsession at all with Utah"Says
the byU "fan" on a story about Utah and UCLA. Your very post proves
your statement wrong. If this was your first post, or if you were a devout UCLA
fan, I would give that to you. But when you constantly post on all things Utah,
you either are in love with Utah, or you have an obsession.Either
way -- thank you for your continued support of our program!!Go
Utes!! Onward and Upward!!
@ Richard Cranium "Chris B you are delusional if you think Utah
will win the PAC 11 south. Your claim is based on what? The way they dominated
Oregon State? (the only dominating win this season for the Utes has been Weber
State)"Delusional? Didn't Chris B nail his predictions
about Utah beating USU during the offseason? Didn't Chris B predict that
Utah's senior class would complete a perfect 4-0 sweep the BYU senior class
this year? Let's not call him delusional when he's also been spot on
with his predictions.
UtahBruin:"*To all Utah fans, I will eat my crow gracefully if
Utah wins."How refreshing it is to get intelligent banter from
fellow PAC-12 fans. byU "fans" could learn a lesson or two.Just as UCLA is a different team this year as it was in '11, Utah is a
completely different team also. Utah's offense has grown leaps and bounds
this year alone. In 2011, the only offense we had was White. Hays only
completed 5 passes for less than 70 yards. Last year, with a totally jacked-up
offense, Utah only lost by 7 in Pasadena. Better yet, our inexperienced defense
is gelling at the right time. Your coaches have stated that Utah's front 4
are better as a unit this year than they were last year with Star.Of
course, none of this means squat once the teams are on the field. So, for now,
I look forward to the game and your Thursday night meal of the black bird. If
it doesn't come to pass, I will gladly give your team credit where it is
due, then we both can sit back and enjoy the USC dumpster fire!Go
So according to Utah Bruin, (Johnny come lately) we simply shouldn't play
the game, lie down and just give it to UCLA. Nope!
PAC12Fan"Every BYU fan would trade places with Utah."Every power conference has it's perennial bottom dwellers.
It's not so much who you associate with that matters, it's what you do
with those opportunities that matters.Arizona has been a PAC member
since 1979 - still looking for it's first Rose BowlIndiana has been a
B1G member since 1953 - last and only Rose Bowl, 1967Utah fans can
beat their chests all they want to about "being in the PAC", but until
the Utes actually accomplish something in the PAC, you're nothing but
cannon fodder for the big boys of the PAC.---------------U 90Didn't UCLA beat U the last time U played them?Last three meetings versus UCLA@UCLA 27 BYU 17BYU 17 UCLA 16

Bruins that the Utes have never accomplished:BYU has shut out the
Bruins, and has beaten them in the Rose Bowl and in a bowl game.
noperspectiveHoping UCLA will do what BYU couldn't? I'm
sorry what does BYU have to do with your conference schedule? We've heard
for 3 years now how the Utes will do many glorious things in the PAC10.2... uh,
it ain't happening.There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that
UCLA is going thump the Utes handily Thursday night. I'm pretty sure ASU,
Stanford, and Oregon will do the same.That leaves Washington,
Colorado, USC and Arizona doesn't it? Out of those 4 games Utes will
probably lose half of them.Utes will once again be < .500 in
their glorious conference and bowl-less.That's exciting huh?
Mr. Bruin: "You have punched it in on average two times a game without Weber
State."I'm curious as to how you came to this conclusion. I
wasn't a math major, but I'm pretty sure 3 TDs vs. Utah State, 6 TDs
vs. Oregon State, and 2 TDs at BYU averages out to be nearly 4 TDs per game,
excluding the Weber State game. Are there variables or algorithms I'm not
aware of in assessing this information?Best of luck to your Bruins.
I'd love a Utah win, as unlikely as it is, but all I really hope for is an
enjoyable game to watch and no serious injuries to either team. Wish I were
still in state to attend, last year was a lot of fun getting to see studs like
Marqise Lee, Star Lotulelei and Ka'deem Carey in person. Never got to see
Hundley or Barr live, hopefully some Sunday down the road I'll get to!
@IndeMacJohnny come lately? I have been here for the past several
years. I did not say anything about laying down and not playing the game. On
paper the game is all but over. But paper foot all doesn't count. I know
the game has to be played. I know that my Bruins have had their struggles in
this state. I know that anything can happen. I am confident that my Bruins
will beat your beloved Utes. But I was also confident that Oregon was going to
play for the title last year. Don't get upset about the stats. I am just
pointing out some things that I think are beneficial to the game. We will have
to see how it all plays out. Here's to a Bruin victory in Utah.I said I would eat my crow. I am a big enough boy to do that. Will you do
the same IndeMac? Thanks for keeping it classy VegasUte.@Rockwell,
when did you beat UCLA in the Rose Bowl? Sorry don't remember that one.Go BRUINS!
UtahBruinDon't the Bruins play in the Rose Bowl?
Oct 1, 1983, BYU 37 at UCLA 35, first game in the BYU/UCLA seriesPart of BYU's 24-game winning streak that culminated in BYU's 1984
I'll say it steelute, the Utes will go 2-6 the rest of the way. And I hope
I'm wrong actually. They might go 3-5 and make that bowl game and maybe
play BYU in the Kraft Hunger Bowl. I'm hoping for that since the rivalry
is going to take a two-year break.I see the Utes beating WAZZU and
CU and maybe AZ to get bowl eligible. I think they lose at USC, lose to UCLA.
obviously lose to Stanford and Oregon, and Arizona State. The USC game is a bit
of an unknown but I think whoever replaces Kiffin, even during the season, will
harness that talent much better. But maybe like AZ that game is up in the air.
So maybe, just maybe 7-5 is in the cards...But I would say 5-7 is more likely
and 6-6 second most likely.
@RockwellSorry about my lack of history knowledge regarding the BYU
UCLA series. I guess I just didn't care enough to go back to 1983, 20
years ago to find out about a win in BYU's history. We play Utah this week
so I was hoping to enjoy in some friendly banter with my Utah friends this week.
I really wasn't expecting to have to talk BYU information. BYU was a very
talented team back then, thus the National Title. But I am more worried about
the Utah game this week. As you should be worried about USU and your passing
game. There is plenty I am sure there to stay busy enough. Utah is a talented
team, they beat your Cougs. I am a sport fan, UCLA is my team. But I know
enough to know that anyone can win on any given day. I mean heck, BYU even beat
my Bruins in the Rose Bowl in 1983. But thanks for the history lesson. Much
appreciated. If UCLA plays BYU again, I hope we can have some friendly banter.
Good luck against USU this week. Here's to a UCLA victory!GO
StGtoSLCYou are right. I made a mistake. Your figures are right.
I was looking at a stat page and must have looked at the wrong number, it
happens. I wasn't trying to doop anyone, it was a honest mistake.
Regardless, I still like my Bruins to win and win big. I have already put it
down thinking 45-17. But the game still has to be played, I know that. As much
as I am willing to give props to Utah if they do pull the upset. I hope many
more Utah fans including yourself will be like VegasUte and give my Bruins the
props. I will do the same for the Utes if they win. But right now, I am
thinking UCLA wins.GO BRUINS!
UCLA 42 Utah 28.
I love how byu fans come here and predict a blowout and think its trash talk.
One thing is for sure, Utah will put up a better fight against UCLA than byu
would. Talking trash on a team that has dominated you is like
talking trash on yourself. It isnt rocket science cougs.
Thomas J: the Utes have won the last four over "BUY" and will play some
great teams this year in the PAC 12. You sir only wish that the same we're
true for your team. Wallow in your shame as you prop up teams that you hope can
do what BUY can not - beat the Utes.
New Mexico is to the MWC, as Utah is to the PAC 12.PAC 12 refs will
favor UCLA--mark that down. Utes will double its penalties.UCLA
Let the Pac-12 slaughter begin.
Alls I know is if we played Utah again we would almost certainly win them .
Rockwell is making up stats from when players wore leather helmets. Nice!
What I think is funny that even though Ute's have a 18-4 against BYU and
USU, that just shows how bad the state of Utah is at football. The last two
seasons have not been good for the Ute's. The football programs in this
state will never be great, good coaches will always use the state of Utah as a
good way to move onto better programs. Urban Myer, Gary Anderson were able to do
great things with average players but that does not last. The coaches that we
currently have are all just average and that is how all programs in this state
will be, is just average. USC has shown that you can have high ranked recruites
and players but with an average coach you will just be an average team.
So I come on this article to read about what the Ute fans are commenting on this
game, and the majority of comments are either referencing BYU trolls or throwing
in not so hidden jabs at BYU's game that occured almost two weeks ago. And
Utah is trying to convince the PAC-12 schools they are "over" BYU? this
Sun Devil isn't buying it. Anyway, Everyone knows Chris
B's predictions are predicated on empty rhetoric, so we'll ignore his
predictions. I'm sorry Utah, UCLA is the team to beat in the south.
I'm siding with UtahBruin and saying UCLA 48, Utah 13. Game is over at the
half or by mid third quarter.
Look for some first period -15 yard penalties, and the utes will be domed the
rest of the game.
BYU fans just cant stop obsessing about the mighty Utes. You never see Utah
fans posting on BYU articles. Then again, I suppose it is only natural - Utah
is a national brand and BYU is a regional school hoping for some reflected
glory. Utah 37UCLA 13You heard it here first.
Rose Bowl bound!! Pac 12 Champs!
UtahBruin"Utah on average is giving up 24 points per game, UCLA
is scoring on average 52 points per games.Utah is scoring 42 Points
per game, 32 without Weber State. UCLA is giving up only 18."These comparisons aren't valid, since ucla has played against a
significantly weaker SOS [currently, ucla ranks #130/The U ranks #39].Do you know what Texas State and NU have in common so far this year? Both
have played against Wyoming at home. NU won, 37-34, after Wyoming hung over 600
yards in total-o on them., while out-gaining them for the game. Texas State
won, 42-21, holding Wyoming to almost 1/2 this total yards on o.Nebraska is a shell of its former self and, not unlike Texas, was vastly
overrated in the PRE-season, based upon nothing more than name and potential.
Neither has been anything of note in recent memory, particularly their
respective defenses.And please get off the Weber State deal. Our
starters played merely 1 half and there's hardly a wide gap in
ability/talent between them/NMSU.
